Thanks; an error on my part. There were two examples given, and I didn't notice that they weren't identical, so I'll make the relevant edit.
Well, thank you. I'll make a suitable edit immediately!
(Knew I should have paid attention that day)
Yes, and the "some twat" was me. To quote Harold Macmillan, when asked what he feared: "Events, dear boy, events" (possibly apocryphal, but it suits the purpose here).
Interesting, thanks. - Richard Chirgwin
Thanks for pointing this out. I have edited the article, since I should have included the expansion of CVE.
A New Zealand Weta, to represent very big bugs!
A treat to see Stanislaw cited as first comment!
Blah, thank you, I'll take care of that now.
Oh, you're good.
Thank you for the extra detail,
The cables on poles are mostly fibre - that's the "F" of HFC. The thicker cables are to accommodate more fibres to lower the contention, ahead of new standards like DOCSIS 3.1.
Since this is often a question I get asked, it's worth an answer here: You can keep your current ISP relationship if you want - the NBN is a change of wholesaler.
Thanks all for drawing my attention to the typo. It's been fixed.
I will change that to "architectural or design changes to their network", to make it clear.
The inverter you'd need is a function of how much power you want to draw. If you want (say) 6 kW continuous, that would be (for eg) two 3 kW inverters.
I didn't price these up, because you'd need the inverter capacity whatever battery you're using, it remains the same.
Thank you so much for clarifying that!
Oops indeed - thanks, I have fixed this.
Thanks - I have removed the extraneous "the". You're right, I'm from Sydney!
Those who had already downloaded and installed need to patch. The offending files have been removed from the site.
veti - There was a bug with the site earlier, which they've now fixed.
The phrase was merely a shorthand for the impact of wind farms being less than natural variability, (the latter I included verbatim in the report), and was not intended to convey any political or scientific commentary.
Regrettably, I can't blame spellcheck, but eyesight. Even with my glasses on, I honestly read it as "Friend".
Thank you for correcting me, friend commentard.
Thanks - missed a million there! Fixed.
As far as we are able to tell at this point, the relevant wording of the decree is this:
"O armazenamento e a recuperação de dados a que se refere o caput deverá ser realizada em centro de processamento de dados fornecido por órgãos e entidades da administração pública federal"
Roughly: the storage and retrieval of data referred to [in this legislation] should be held in data processing [facilities] provided by entities of the federal public administration.
Why, thank you! This will be noted in the article.

Why would you cancel an order for the most technically advanced and awesome device on the planet at the moment? Because one headline-grabbing techie identified a flaw that could be fixed in minutes by any-old-coder?
I suspect it will be fixed quickly.
Oh, and apparently I'm a "coward" for not wrangling with the authentication things here. Meh.
Typo corrected, thanks.
Chris - thanks for the catch! I have corrected it to "universe".
The 200mm aperture came from the source:
(Scroll down to "standard specifications")
"200 mm aperture, f/4 primary optic"
Thank you for drawing this to my attention. I've added the link to the article, and here it is: http://www.pozible.com/project/26539/
Amended and chastened.
Thanks, all. I have corrected Microsoft's grammar now.
Dr Mouse -
The list of patents is on the BT page linked in the story.
Note that they're not talking about distance as in "metres of copper / fibre whatever". Distance in the context of the paper is the topology - how many nodes between you and I, for example.
A study, no. I asked Australia's ophthalmologists' professional body about this. Their answer was that since the "glasses" project their images "at infinite distance" there shouldn't be a problem.
Since optometry and ophthalmology instruments employ the same trick for some testing instruments, I decided to accept that answer.
Or 708.66 billion cubits.
You didn't miss. I missed a zero. Now fixed, with thanks!
Thanks, ScissorHands, I have amended the copy accordingly.
Thanks for this. I have added a paragraph at the end of the story to explain it. The "three strikes" refers to the process followed before a case can be brought to the tribunal - the customer has to be sent three warnings via their ISP.
Thank you. I will correct this.
"Rather like the bird that impersonates camers shutters - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjE0Kdfos4Y (1:50). Come on Attenborough, you expect us to believe that ?"
Since I've heard birds imitate mobile phone ringtones, yes. I know of a Superb Lyrebird in Australia whose repertoire includes imitating a local dog!
Thanks both, John Wheeler - 1955 - added!
Thanks - I have deleted that reference. It was spurious anyway.
Good question! - Please note, here I am talking to the limit of my understanding.
Greater distance introduces greater noise. The entanglement may well exist over infinite distance, but our ability to observe it is eventually lost to the noise.
Fixed - thanks!
Thanks commentards for picking up the mistake in the original version. I've now correctly identified the molecule as nanographene - Richard Chirgwin
Thanks to the readers that caught the misplaced decimal point, which I have now corrected.
