[Citation needed] when it comes to telling people it really works.
Or ships... Lot's of ships: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Heavy_Industries
Well, it is generally considered to be a place where some sort of continued civilization has occurred, even though it has seen plenty of power switches(much like ye old Mesopotamia). Another contender for one of the oldest civilizations is Egypt, which has also seen a continued existence of a society much with the same genetic makeup.
All in all, it's a silly/stupid statement that has not much merit from a historical perspective and generally paints with a extremely overtly big brush.
Did they just admit to being incompetent and useless and given the figures or years gone yonder and these days, can we then safely presume that they really never served a tangible purpose?
I think I'm starting to fancy their current 'openness'.
Bit hazy on the details, but isnt it just delisting of the news websites in news.google? I can still happily find them by a normal google search.
What baffles me more is that if users find google's offering so useful, why havent the news agencies made their own offering? Seems like a winner to me if properly executed.
And on the 'blackmail' part, you cant expect to force a website to list you, and pay you for the honour if they wouldnt want to? I understand the monopoly google has but dont these laws affect all search websites?
All in all, I dont really get the problem.
And using the gear for parking and not the handbrake in the winter to avoid the handbrake freezing stuck!
What do you mean Warm? I thought Slashdo.... Oooooooh.
Yep, the images are too big on the site, doesnt make any sense at all. Especially for a context less purpose as in a article like this.
Indeed, scrap metal would have led me to believe the author when on a metal-casting binge and decided to smith it into a replica weapon!
Nice job nonetheless, must have been very satisfying!
AWACS are indeed the backupplan, although there should always be a active secondary cover airborne, might be the replacement ships.
No, you have secondary radar and control systems(part militairy) that can take over in a emergency. Not sure what is going on right now but it might be more then just a power failure.
I remember reading about a software error that caused the reported altitude to be wrong in a piece of software for the ATC, I think that was in San Francisco.
I take it you first had to design and build your own engine before being allowd to drive a car? How about first learning to cast the steel?
Alright, but that is a archaic technology not really being used on a day to day basis anymore, atleast not in direct interaction for most people, and it's more in the domain of the Electrical Engineer then a programmer/coder that would possible design a interface or a website. It's a wide field nowadays, nothing like it was in its beginning, and yes I understand the value of going back to basics but its not a good introduction at all.
You dont teach people to fly by throwing them off hills in the old gliders or the wright flyer, we have passed that stage no matter how interesting it might be.
Copying code from others or a book is how most people start... How did you start coding then? Did it all magically drop down from the skies by the gods of bits'n'bytes?!
> (*) If you're in the right lane and passing traffic then the guy in a X5 or woman driving a MX5 (it's usually > one or 'tother) sitting 2 metres off your bumper at 80mph, gesticulating and flashing lights can take a long > walk off a short pier. It's tempting to "brake check" them, isn't it?
It did cross my mind but I would have expected this gentlemen to swerve into me the first oppertunity he got. When he passed me it was obvious that he also wasnt paying the attention he should to maintaining control of his vehicle.
In retrospect, I should have flipped him off after he started flashing his lights(which is illegal where I live). But oh well, better let him trundle off and wait behind the other traffic just ahead.
Aye, I do that as well, and I've noticed that speeding doesnt yield me any time advantage anyway.
Just today some plonker was hugging my tail and flashing his lights because in his opinion I obviously wasnt overtaking the traffic quick enough, even though I was doing 125KM/H and overtaking lorries that were doing 90KM/H... Then again he could have overtaken me earlier and was probably miffed that he didnt do it. In retrospect I should have shown him the finger.
Also, I could still see him ahead of me 4 minutes later...
Owning a plane isnt that expensive, and if you enjoy flying a N amount of hours a year then it already quickly evens out compared to renting. I even know some people that got the certification required to do their own maintenance on their aircraft cutting the costs even more.
Aaah yeah, but it looks like the lid literally blew off and launched the moped. I've also heard reports that the man actually wished to employ the rising lavatory at the time. Not sure how he would have missed the moped anyway...
The victim actually suffered major injuries and has been transported to a hospital.
At the bottom, 'zwaargewond' means heavily wounded. In this case it refers to his belly.
How adorable, the trolls are out in force skimming the interwebs. How very enjoyable!
Bit ranty though, you pretty much gave away the goal of your post right of the bat, best to use subterfuge a little more so we can get a little game out of it!
Also, making broad sweeping general statements is rather sexists, you also presume guilt without evidence and a host of other applications of bad logic. Are you yourself not what you accuse others of being?
Well, then I would argue that The Epic of Gilgamesh would blow any other suggestion right out of the water, twice as old and probably one of the most important works for establishing written script(from our current perspective that is).
So the suspect actually managed to disarm a man with a gun that appeared at his door? That is actually quite impressive and sensible given the circumstances!
EDIT: Nevermind, the whole switcharoo got my confused for a second. The writing isnt very clear about who's who in this report.
Actually, my best bet is that heat is a factor in the reported bending in pants, Especially since it seems to buckle at a weaker part. Why exactly I dont know because I'm pretty sure the design could functions with the right materials.
I hate to break it to you but in a circuit is exactly the point at which something is about to pop up into your view, sometimes at the same height, different speed and converging angle. I take it you havent flown much in VFR traffic? It's just as bad as a kid jumping your plane, only then messier.
The Sony Z2 was on my to be considered list for a short while until I realized that I havent forgiven Sony yet for the Other OS fiasco on the PS3. I went with a LG G2 which is a damn fine phone!
The Z1 to 3 line seems very populair, I see that phone pop up everywhere in the past few months.
Heh, my father's iPhone 4S survived a similar ordeal only cause I have picked it up and placed it in a safe place multiple times. It's even better when he goes on that he cannot find his phone!
Steve, yes it works on IOS 7 but that is not available for the iPhone 3GS, sort of frustrating since it's still a working device.
Steve, the Podcast feature from the music player that could update and track podcasts is gone in the 6.18 IOS Software. I was a bit puzzled when I wanted to subscribe to podcasts but the device wouldnt allow me(even though all sorts of guides told me I could). This was on a iPhone 3GS. Turns out that Apple seperated the Podcast software from the Music Player, fair enough... Well no, turns out you can only install that on 4S versions and up(IOS 7+), effectively removing features from older models. I came across a few other instances of this as well. Add to that no good free software for podcasts for IOS 6 and well, it's just looking extremely shoddy.
Not sure the Nexus 4 has those, havent seen the fingerprint bollocks on any phone at all really. Most android flagship phones of last year did already have all of those features though, not sure the camera things are such a big deal, it looks more like marketing speak. If you do enjoy good camera's you can always check the HTC or Nokia phones, they are lovely.
So it's not gold but alloy'd gold. Great, seems redundant really.
Also, I've been heavily underwhelmed with Apple, seems like they are a year behind all the other flagship phones nowadays.
Aluminium can be a excellent and strong material to use if you alloy it correctly! Dont blame the material, blame the designer!!
We got sensors like that where I work, when in the storage room behind a shelve it will turn off(badly placed sensor), so people always jam the door open with a fire extinguisher so that there is atleast light coming in. We also got a similair sensor in the riveting box that doesnt trigger if you are at the far end so it all goes black...
Wish we just had normal light switches..
I agree, this has been a very enjoyable saturday experiment!
Well, the F-16's are useless in a carrier configuration, the airframe is not build for it(One does not simply strengthen a airframe). The Arrestor is more a experimental emergency braking system next to the parachute system. Its not advisable to use it if you want to avoid lengthy inspections.
Hey now! I like that he's back as well! It's like a eadon only then less annoying!
Heh, I just did a quick search for that Wajam company, I ended up on the wiki page and started reading the talk pages(which are often quite informative).
That company is massively trolling wikipedia in the hopes of getting any positive PR.
Ah yes, the seven rings of hell.

Haha thats gold, he seems to be mixing facts with fairy tales!
@ Evan Essence
Not sure, did a quick search for his Open Data User Group, but it doesnt really exist on wikipedia(the link to it does...). I get a feeling its a recent rebranding of something else.
This whole Open Data User Group really just looks like a front for companies to siphon off private data, it appears to be under control of companies and doesnt really have any 'user' interest groups at hand, the british equivalent of the EFF/Bit for Freedom etc.
Dodgy all around really, if I wouldnt know better I would scream scam from the top of my lungs.
EDIT: There is a certain irony in his request for El Reg to "Please engage with the Open Data User Group for a balances view". Looks like his group himself never attempted any such thing!
Btw, that open_paul lad joined up today and only made one post so far(the one above). So likely someone involved in the project or a shill. Or both.
@Mephistro, it would be the only reality show worth watching also!
Hah good one, I've said it before and I say it again, employ the BOFH method of negotiations, N'th people enter, 1 person leaves, you will find a brick underneath your chairs. good luck!
Filhart, you might enjoy this reading:
I found it very enlightening concerning chargers.
"You can't take away rights someone doesn't have in the first place."
Blacks didnt have any rights either in many countries, doesnt make that situation a valid or just one.
Marrying black people as a white person was not done either half a century ago, look how we changed! I love the fact that churches are always trying to 'hijack' marriage, even though its a governmental instrument.
What really? Surely if you are a wine distributor it would be advantageous to be able to distribute online?
Mr Kuik and his group are a pest on my country, fortunately enough I can now conveniently access TPB again. To be fair, I only started using it after the blockade came into place, because screw those that wish to destroy the internet(which is truly one of his goals).
Also, there is a certain irony in his statement, since internet selling/buying of goods has never been as high. Turns out it doesnt need a 'safe' place to do as such.
Spot on Andy, Wikipedia seems to be getting worse and worse, even on the 'simple' things that should just consist of facts. It seems most articles dont even try to be bias-free anymore, mostly the hint is in the language used...
Alas, it will be a shame to see it go down.
You know T-Mobile is already a massive company in the rest of the world? I doubt AT&T could pull that trick easily.
