use this to ask your MP
I have used it in the past and got a written reply from the MP in question so , it has worked at least once !
Re: Really hard to take sides
well hopefully neither side will lose , or win, and be locked in a long and bitter dispute that just drains the resources of both sides,
kind of like Kramer vs kramer only more tedious and no-one really gives a f**k
the only downside being different lawyers win through fees.
Re: Off-topic: Electric cars?!?
here is some gov info that may help
after power gen transport is the next biggest target, though when you drill into it domestic transport accounts for 20% of CO2 and of that cars and taxis are 58% of the 20% so 11.6 % overall.
If all cars were electric that 11.6% would be reduced providing an easyish way of reducing CO2 according to UK gov though without investing in power gen it will not work anyway.
its author's belief that nations need to measure the impact of online crime if the author is to understand how to sell them security products
fixed that for you
so is Larry actually saying that they are crap but no reason not to make money out of them ?
or will it be "shared databases are crap except ours"
either way expect a labyrinthine licencing model that is open to interpretation that no-one has the minerals to test in court

I know , mine is the one with the programme in the pocket, no need to push
Re: "They used a spiral pattern to confuse the bees and trick them into crash landing."
i want that job, does this mean a set of increasingly difficult set of landing conditions leading to awesome top gun bees ?
maybe some obstacle courses ....
and by extension robust drones, but I prefer to concentrate on the bees.
Re: Lifestyle choice
" If you can't cope with bringing up a family and bringing enough money in to do so properly, then don't have children."
this comment ranks as one of the stupidest comments I have read,
because of course you can predict the future and your ability to cope with a situation of which you have little or no knowledge,
how do you know until you do it ?
it isn't all about the money either, there are good and bad parents from all economic backgrounds
I always find the phrase "overlooked for promotion" to be slightly odd.
First off that implies the control of the situation was not yours or some external factor was at play to deny you the promotion you deserved. Is this really the case ?
Did you do everything you could to get the promotion or did you just work hard and expect it ?
If you think getting a promotion in the organisation you are in involves doing things outside of your boundaries then try the job market
If you feel you aren't being valued where you are then try the job market.
If nothing happens maybe you have found your level so be happy with that, or keep trying the job market whilst balancing your job/home life.
or just ignore all of the above as it is only my opinion and based on my narrow experience of the UK IT job market. The author is American and things are almost certainly different there.
A war on terror is like trying to nail jelly to a wall, the only way to reduce terror is to improve the lives of the people from where the terrorists recruit.
kill someone's relative they become easy picking for terror groups (or governments or criminals or ...etc) for vengeful acts of violence , educate them and improve their lives they will be harder to convince of the justification for "righteous slaughter" and also , hopefully , more critical of the arguments presented to persuade.
Intelligence gathering is still needed, I do not think spying on everyone is a good thing or justified.
Re: Oh dear. Oh, um... dear.
so there is still space for
....no need to push, its the one with the bad week in the pocket
so what we are saying is that there are many options for the home electronics geek , and, depending on your personal preferences one is more relevant to the projects and your brain type than the others.
I think that is a good thing
Re: You never flew a fighter, did you?
"Until the remote control station has a 360° 3D "display" without the lag of satellite links (try to fire against a fast moving target a tenth of second later...), and other "inputs" "
this is all just a matter of time.
ever play an FPS online ?
there have been people with high pings anticipating movement to compensate for their network lags ever since online gaming started.
Re: That which brings the highest happiness...
I once managed to get them all to jump on the train track next to where you started.
but 9 times out of 10 one got away , then the mandatory hunting followed by having to lose the police
played all of the GTAs so far IV has gotten a bit serious though, played saint row 3 recently which has more of the humour of the previous GTAs
If V has more humour than IV then I will get the PC version, Keyboard and mouse FTW indeed (apart form the bloody helicopters !)
Re: No wonder
the hardest languages to learn are
please google to check though as my memory is not reliable
The main difficulties with English are too many exceptions to rules and words that sound identical but are spelt differently depending on meaning
again please check the above.
A person isn't stupid, people often are
So there is a risk that a mobile phone or other device could interfere with the safe landing or take off of a plane.
Given that a percentage of the sample doesn't switch off their phone or other device and that there are very few instances of aircraft having incidents as a result of passengers electronic devices can the risk not be assessed ?
impact - high crashing plane kills people
probability - low based on my scanning of the comments so please feel free to disagree
mitigation - ask all passengers to switch of said electronic devices knowing that some will comply and some won't
the mitigation chosen seems a reasonable compromise , I don't understand why everyone is getting so upset, surely the fact that some people cannot do without their phone or the possibility of not being contactable is more more upsetting ? well it is to me anyway.
to tie in with their other offering ,

who would have thought breaking down ingrained stereotypes was sooo easy, a few articles here and there and women will flock to IT ....
Paris cos she was an IT girl
please insert yourselves
Due to the lack of an icon for my brain dribbling out of my ears I choose Paris I feel intellctually equal to her after reading this

which is awesome
Re: There is potentially a difference.

“we think it’s important to re-humanize technology so that consumers, professionals and decision-makers can interact with technology how and when they want – from the living room to the boardroom.”
has to win most vomit inducing marketing bo***cks so far this year, I mean what a terrible way to say "we let people make IP calls to one another"
the person who came up with that statement should be put down , or locked in a dark room with only themselves for company
stuff the gov already does
just point parents and kids at that.
Re: Except that...
and that is precisely the reason to keep trying
Politicians moaning about corporations tax behaviour winds me up. Comments like this
"Instead companies like Google are creating artificial structures and abusing current tax legislation to move profits offshore in order to avoid tax. That is just not right, and people like Eric Schmidt need to understand the legitimate public outrage that behaviour generates.”
piss me off as the only people who can change this are the politicians. So Ms Hodge is you don't want corporations behaving this way change the tax code and stop whinging about ethical behaviour which is just a crap way of trying to guilt a corporation into changing and trying to swap responsibility from the politican to the corporation.

welcome to the new iCrime
Apple and VW just f**k off, go on , just f**k off

so the EU voted through something they knew was crap and wouldn't achieve the stated aims,
I just don't get that
I believe politicians are untrustworthy at best but that really does just takse the piss,
so should the affected banks have been allowed to fail rather than propped up by the government ?
Re: Brings a new consideration to the phrase
banning drugs barely reduces their availability so you could argue that it has no effect on use, or could indeed make the social effect of drug use worse by putting criminals in charge of the sale and distribution and putting the profits in criminals hands, on the other hand murder is probably best left illegal.

"vaginas that can identify evil penises." but if that was true politicians and other people in power would only be able to f**k people in arse

space stuff is ace
glad they were able to fix it,
I just find it cool that they analysed the problem and fixed it. I know the problem itself wasn't massive but because it is in space and remote to the engineers, I just find that impressive.
procrasturbation - is that passing time by w**king ?
beer whether it was deliberate or accident
there are 5 twilight movies ...?
I thought there were only 3 but then again i sat through the first one and f**king hated it so my mind may just be wiping stuff due to the trauma of the first one.
One of the worst movies I have ever seen just about everything was awful, but then again I am not a hormonally challenged female )ie between 10 and 15) so therefore not target audience
Re: A few corrections
