Hmm smells fishy to me
I often perform the Philadelphia experiment in my kitchen. Favourite is between two digestives.
Fabulous! New observations may enable us to throw out some old theories about solar system formation. My guess? The asteroid belt is the remains of a rocky planet that was smashed up early in the story.
To all you lot who say that voice recognition isn't secure enough. This is just one of many options available under Android. You pick whichever suits you best. Better to have a weak protection that you use than a strong one that you don't use because of the relative inconvenience.
Pay a bit more and get a 16:10 panel with IPS then hang on to it.
You guys suck. Twice!
In fact they are named after the Ferengi daimons of Star Trek the Next Generation.
I thank you.
Mate is good and so is Cinnamon. But Xfce is better and crucially allows you to place the panel on the side of the screen, which to me is essential on a letterbox laptop.
This is clearly something that doesn't move but should. Therefore squirt on some WD40.
Well its kind of like a big expensive power-hungry doughnut. We pump in money here - and - er - ah yes you see that faint glow? That's fusion right there! Cool isn't it?
Raytheon wins £x10^8
I know its exciting and all, but really in practical terms there's no point in sending any human beyond low Earth orbit. Send robots instead. As long as they don't come back what could possibly go wrong?
From his reported comments it seems like the man in charge was being supplied with an air-laughing gas mixture.
Also the roads in Somerset are atrocious.
I used to believe in that TAG Heuer cachet. But the one I bought literally fell apart after a decade of light use.
Seems like they believe the myth that the only thing we struggle with is converting cleverness into profit.
I read somewhere there's very little nitrogen on Mars.
Regardless of how crap Raytheon were. The civil servants still managed to screw up the contract and left the public exposed to excess costs. Then they hold the legal proceedings in secret to try to hide their failures.
According to my extensive reading on the subject, Tritium is not used in the majority of nuclear weapons. The relatively short half-life is problematic for long-term storage and maintenance. Instead your typical thermonuclear device uses lithium isotopes. And also expanded polystyrene, strangely.
Fascinating if somewhat scary subject to read about, if you have a spare day and don't mind spending it on Wikipedia. The history of the test programmes is also fascinating.
A linux lappy running the Bash shell?
I want one in black
Whereas if you photograph a violet flower or other pure violet colour source using a digital camera you get a blue.
Ja it seems some of our theories may not be fully correct ja
The Beeb has a long and proud history of science-based programming and it is sad to see that rich heritage getting trashed for the sake of mere entertainment in cases like this.
Nice to know its not only YouView users who are stuck with a crap box.
Clearly they are waiting for another one of these tax holidays so they can repatriate the money without paying the tax. It is weak government that allows this sort of thing to happen.
What you are referring to is a tax that the corporations are legally and morally obliged to pay. This is no more a barrier than any other part of our legal or financial system.
It seems you have been bamboozled into believing the situation is more complex and ambiguous than it really is.
http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-31294745 And I quote:
The glitch is a result of the "photoelectric effect" phenomenon.
Albert Einstein won a Nobel Prize for his discovery that if a light hits a component and it generates a charge, it causes that component to reset.
I am guessing Rory is away skiing so they got an arts or history intern to write the article?
This reminds me - must get pulseaudio running on my Pi
Like many things in our wonderful modern world, the financials are out of touch with real world economics. I'm sure Tim Worstall would agree?
Or maybe it simply doesn't work and they don't want investors to cash-out just yet?
I always watch his films and they do throw up some interesting ideas. But he is not shy of putting the story ahead of the facts. This business of simplification is something he knows all about - perpetuating the myth about the death of UK manufacturing being a prime example.
In order to mitigate the quiet hydraulic pump the new unit will be designed to continuously whine about its working conditions:
ooh its too cold in here
ooh someone opened the blinds and its impairing my vision
ooh this chair I asked for is actually less comfortable than my old one
Or alternatively it is designed to whistle, hum and huff all day.
Yes it had plenty of faults but it was also funny in places, as is the book.
For something really bad try "Basket Case" or "Surf Nazis Must Die" both of which could have been _so_ much better if only someone with any skill or talent was involved with any of the production!
Interesting but is the result more general - does the substance inhibit memories of all types from being retained?
I've been using my newest xubuntu lappy for a while and it was only yesterday I realised it isn't even installed.
I would like to know how they determined the distance of the emission at 5G light years? The terrestrial HF via meteor burst would seem the more likely explanation.
Service has noticeably declined in quality since the buy-up. Time to find another messaging platform already.
If it moves, funk it!
Also, they may be a lot of poor people in that country but I think its a long time since they starved in large numbers.
The extraterrestrial sample size is very small. If each and every asteroid and comet had a different H20/HDO mix it would be no surprise that our mixed planetary water was an agglomeration.
Sometimes its just nice to see someone else's project going up the Swanny for a change.
If it carries on the open source community will put together a reliable and secure replacement for Outlook and Exchange, then world+dog will finally be able to ditch the Redmond monster.
Please don't feed the troll
Thanks for that I had a well needed chuckle. Thumbs up and a Friday pint for you.
If you are feelng experimental try replacing the eggs with freshly cooked porridge oats.
The whole climate change and man-made global warming issue must be like any large thing. Its big and scary but there are lots of sides to it, lots of angles. Some see it as a threat to their existence, others want to worship it as some kind of vengeful natural spirit. Some see it as an opportunity to eek out a living or something to pin their own political agenda to. Some want to address it as a series of technical or organisational problems that may be solvable.
Epic themes such as life, death, god, love, servitude, retirement, animal bothering. Spectacular visuals and an immense soundtrack. Not one, not two, but three replicant hotties.
The original book was one thing and the film quite different. It was stylish and original (at least as far as a sci-fi/noir crossover can be). But quite different to the source material, somewhat over-rated and flawed in many ways. As a part-time OCD-er I loath its inconsistencies but still love it as a film.
Regardless of this, any modern day sequel is pre-destined to be utter sheeite and I fail to see any reason to expect otherwise in this case.
