Re: education issue.
Ah yes, you are correct Ridley, put 'Do not touch', or 'No Handle' on any part of a aircraft and people are bound to use it as climbing equipment or wiggle it about a bit to see what it does!
I love you all for being so ridiculously insane! Please dont ever change(The lizard people are coming!).

Heck, I even signed in to tweeter to post that!
Not really, the plant is by Russian design partly run by Russians or so I've read a couple of years ago.
Re: Personally ...
Good to know there's more of us, I've always seen it as a collection of craters which is fascinating enough on its own. I have googled some images that are supposed to show it but it doesnt make it any clearer to me.
Re: The Asteroid is Electrically Charged and Passing Through the Sun's Electric Field
Ssssshh! They dont want any logic to be applied to their hypothese!
Jean-Paul, have you looked a the website from which we are discussing the article right now, and which is frequently mentioned on The Register?
No? I have, took me 30 seconds to find your device: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nexus+7+Battery+Replacement/9895
Enjoy! Also, those tools dont strike me a 40$ tools, maybe someone is trying to scam you?
Re: So what did Google say about Android
His point is that the Apple IOS7 update made his phone worse, thats not called support you know.
Re: It get's a little boring
I actually think some of the high up execs have been replaced by linux-running androids that are not set on imploding the company with incompetence, surely nothing else can explain the recent events?
Re: No war
Really? I havent seen much of a terrorist problem lately, atleast no more then it ever has been. You have some peaks and some lows on the scales but in general its all still very meh. Its mostly a figment propagated by those with the biggest interest in perpetual war.
Re: Shock, horror, gasp etc
Ah yes, the Model M keyboard and a Nokia 3310 are the weapon of choice for the modern programmer setting out onto the bloody battlefield!
I myself got a Corsair K60 keyboard, quite lovely!
Re: Don't worry!
I say we give the Eiffel Tower and the Big Ben to the USA Citizens in 2030, as a token gift of our appreciation for them playing a galactic shooting disk, mighty kind of those former-rebel states!
Re: Bring back Maemo
Still using it here! Although I need to upgrade to the CSSU edition..
Re: We do what we must, because we can.
But there's no sense crying over every mistake.

Twice a day, uphill both ways and in the snow!
Oh, and ofcourse the inevitable patches for the patches(Patchception).
Re: Quality not Quantity
You got to admit he has a point though, I've found some article horribly written or completely faulty on points, and yet I know that improving it is useless since there is this huge territorial feud. I've seen the talk pages for many many articles and adding to that all the stories that appeared in the media and it just isnt attractive to spend any time improving wikipedia.
Its takes a long time to become a fighter pilot, not a long time to pilot a fighter yet, they truly are easy to pilot, I wouldnt say easier then a Piper or Cessna, but not much harder. Speed is just another factor to get used too.
Flying always starts with a basic plane, same reason why you dont start your first driving class in a F1 car but start out with a VW Golf or some other car like that. Doesnt mean a F1 car is impossible to drive or tremendously difficult(driving, not racing, important distinction).
You see, the physics of flying doesnt change for either plane, the one is just faster then the other, and flying or driving fast isnt very difficult to learn. Note again that I am NOT talking about entering in combat or low level flying between the mountains or some other trick. I really am just talking about flying a F-16 from point A to point B adhering to aviation law.
Re: situational awareness
Again, most of the flight is already computer controlled, a major part in most crashes is pilot error. With a little change to the system most planes could easily be computer controlled. Once again pilots are not really needed in civilian airliners anyway, its mostly still in there to keep the passengers comfortable(a meatbag instills safety for some reason). In aviation a lot of modern technology's trickly down from the military. So its rather obvious to think that development would first start there.
Nop, not the noise, the engine noise is rather deafening constant. The best cue you get is when a fanblade blows up mid operation or any other catastrophic event. Creaking? I certainly hope not, a creaking airframe(especially a F-16) is one that can be written off. Heck, some even get written off after a ever so slightly bad landing(frame slightly bend, only observable by computer).
The forces themself can easily be simulated by using pressure suits. The display/view they see can be projected around them as they would have in a simulator. So really, not much is holding back BVR fighter technology. In a F-16 the computer is already handling most operations of the airplane, the pilots really just in there to make combat decisions. Any have brained person can fly a fighter jet, they are designed and made for ease of use.
Re: Apple support versus an Android: you usually have to go to a CM build.
You can probably pay for that instant replacement thing, I think some providers have this extra payable thing just like apple care for the insta-replace in case when broken.
CM means CyogenMod, a group of people that build releases for older phones that are unlocked/able. Quite neat to install.
As a previous poster said, look up to see how providers and manufacturers handle the update and make a pick. If you cannot be arsed to do a trivial amount of research into this then dont bother and stick with your apple device.
Nexus devices are google's own phone, and from what I understand they are updated pretty well.
Re: If i wanted a...
Nothing wrong with plastic at all, its used for critical parts in aircraft. Glass, not so much. I dont really get the hate for plastic nowadays. Yes I like metal alloys as much as the next guy but not everything has to be metal or glass coated.
Re: That which brings the highest happiness...
The gang of Elvis's never really lived up to the Hara Krisna so beautifully splattered across the side walk in a agonizing slide, never knowing if you would have them all of if one of the buggers would leap to safety.
Offcourse, hunting those that survived down was mandatory!
I long for a new Maemo/Meego version!
I dont know if Porsche ever constructed a 155mm turret(Krupp was the usual gun producer to be fair). But I know Porsche made a turret for the King Tiger that looked much like a Panther turret instead of the Krupp design that got put on.
Or are you by any chance referencing the Mause prototype tank?
Now you are discarding the Crusader tanks! They were quite the mean bastard! The biggest problem was the under performing 2pdr gun against the PIVF2(I presume you are talking about the long barrelled one). Once they got the 6pdr mounted in the mk3 it became a fine performer together with the US Sherman II.
Re: Are the Chinese really the enemy?
Truth is, turns out our own governments are not that far removed from what they claim is bad and horrible. Let alone follow their own words or rules.
Re: High cruising speed?
Well, aircraft hydraulics operate at about 3000 PSI(Roughly 200 bar) with an expected increase to 5000 PSI in future components.
Re: There's a misunderstanding here.
You could change the mass by compressing the helium, letting more air in and even changing the state of the helium at which it isnt lighter then air any more.
Re: Windows Mobile was worse!
I wonder why google did not do this before, my N900 used to get OS updates through the application manager(front end for apt-get etc.). Even though it isnt as fancy as the play store it did allow you to install any package through it. Surely they must have seen the writing on the wall?
I still am! I am glad your problems are resolved, although bugger me with a fishfork if I knew what was causing it.
Re: Whose system?
Truth is, he has been right more then anyone likes. He might seems a bit extreme at first, but he has been right many times in the past few years, worryingly enough.
Re: Bullshit Bingo?
"'...empowering customers in the activities they value most...."
So.. Wanking right?
Hmm, might be. I have Adblock plus and Noscript and am not experiencing those problems unfortunately... Might as well be FireFox itself though.
Re: Can't do the time, don't do the crime
Why has congress done nothing then? Their idleness speaks a thousand words. At best he would have been told to shut up and sit down.
Second, the US doesnt respect The Hague trials in any shape or form, so trying to get a US citizen to the international court is nigh on impossible. The US more then once has stated that they will do anything to liberate US citizens held up in The Hague for crimes of any sort.
So, I really dont see a alternative compared to what he has done.
I think they did it in a inside setting, fake grass(or just temporarily laid down) could be, although studio lightning on the outside doesnt seem impossible either. Its just washed out of all colour.
Although you could be correct in that they photoshopped 2 photo's together, it wouldnt surprise me.
The lightning, the colours, her eyes.. It all looks so scary for some reason.. Lucid almost. Also her torso twist looks painful.
Her position on the couch/bench does look awkward if not painful. Surely they could have done better then make it look like someone has been on a 5 day bender with only certain spices for dinner?
Re: The idea is a bit tacky, even though the handset probably won't be...
Aluminium does make it feel more solid, although it really is perception, my Saitek equipment has quite a bit of it in the design whereas the CH Pro gear doesnt. Both are good enough for their purposes and the thing that matters the most(the internals) need about as much maintenance for both after a decade.
Still, I like aluminium for design much better then most other materials, except for Brass, that beats everything. Always go with Brass!
I'll wait out for the deathstar one, I've heard it comes with a tractor beam and a optional laser that will destroy Android phones.
Did Firefox by any chance update or did you install something new? Could be a borked up program or driver somewhere although I really cant say anything useful about it.
For me, this article seems to ring through, Firefox went through a lack of stability after 4, this was also when they started the whole 'One major version a month' thingy. Which is fine but confusing none the less. So far I havent had any crashes that cannot be attributed to flash in the past few months so that seems promising so far. I also use Chromium(Chrome with google stuff stripped) on the side which is also quite nice.
I doubt anything else is more appropriate here.. The insanity of giving a private institution access to this data is nothing sort of insane...

Call me silly, but I quite like doing the zoidberg!
Re: anti-Apple bias?
My early morning brain read Zuckerberg as Zoidberg.. I would totally like to see a statue of that, with a annual 'do the zoidberg' event!
Re: YouTube is using my common trademark without my permission
And this is relevant how? If you really feel poopoo'd that badly consider using different channels other then spamming El Reg...
It looks like you are just googling(haha) youtube, and posting your little rant on any page you can find. Quite mature really.
Its just Sky-net practising for when judgement day comes!
When in doubt, Halon. A fine rule to live by! Fits right in with 'Nothing a little application of cattle-prod cannot solve'.
Re: Oh rly?
API != protocol
Re: Go back to how this started.
Indeed, aviation fuel burns incredibly hot, its also the reason why special secretive alloys are in the jet engines. These alloys have caused some of the greatest advances in power and engine usage(and spurred the development of bigger engines and not narrow longer ones). The sovjets had to use a few creative tricks in procedures to allow their planes to land/takeoff on similair runways.
