Re: Italian and spacecraft don't play well
now that it's a heap of smouldering ash, maybe it should be referred to as a "Tesla among spacecraft"
Re: @ Roo. You mean Obama don't you.
you're really not getting it. let me break it down for you: THERE IS NO ANONYMOUS
Re: @ eSeM - Another bug fix ....
"You're kidding, right?
I'm, have it known, not an Apple fan. Not at all. But that doesn't stop me from applauding a company for listening to customer complaints and doing something about it.
How can that be wrong?
They were a lot faster than Microsoft, who took quite a while to give people their start button back when the complaints about Modern/ Metro/ THD* started rolling in.
And Canonical doesn't listen to their customers at all, as it seems. Lucky for me, as I happen to like Unity, but a bother to a lot of other users who left and got all Minty and such. But then, they don't ask for your money, so let's cut some slack there and just get something else if you don't like it.
So, dissing Apple for fixes and changes that users want? No, no and no. You should praise them for it!
And that's from an almost fanatic non-fanboi."
i think you should write a musical about it
Whither goest thou, Apple in thy shiny car in the night?
the Russian loony man has only 200 social media followers. this is how an advanced alien entity communicates to humanity?
Re: Powerful hallucinogen?
THC is a very potent molecule. I think that is what was meant. Have a few vaporizer hits of white rhino and you'll get the picture.
Re: Supermarkets? Seriously?
i generally take well under 30 minutes to knock mine out when I sit down in front of the computer.
Re: No one here remembers TEMPEST then?
"Or, alternatively, use valves (vacuum tubes) not semiconductors. Like everyone was astounded to find in that Russian fighter whose name I forget."
that reminded me of the astronaut showing his soviet counterpart one of the special ballpoint pens NASA developed, at huge expense, that worked in zero-g. when the cosmonaut looked unimpressed, the american asked how they had solved the problem. "we use a pencil".
"WINSTON CHURCHILL'S PERSONAL PAPERS"
i immediately thought "rizla".
glad it's friday
In theory the Cu might be worth the same in the ground as a replacement. What about once you have paid someone to dig it up, make good, transport it, traded it to a metal dealer, etc. etc?
bossy surveillance. just what this world needs more of.
i think it's worth thinking about piracy more deeply. it is wrong to steal work, especially great (and expensive to produce) work like the two shows mentioned. but what if stealing content actually leads to, or encourages a deepening engagement with the media (tv, games etc). i've noticed amongst my friends, the ones who are the most active downloaders of illegal content are at the same time, by far the biggest buyers of legal content. after all, if the illegally downloaded movie or game was never going to be purchased in the first place, the downloader is not depriving the producer of anything, but may well spur them to go and buy something related.
Re: Author wont be winning a nobel prize for grammar
That'll be "won't"
Re: I gave up carrying my mobile last year and just leave it in the house
precisely because of this kind of bullshit snooping i gave up my mobile completely 3 months ago. it does take some heavy-duty adjusting to, but is very liberating.
fuck you, orange.
Quantum computer Boffin 'had to sit down"
Is that because his wave function collapsed?

Re: @AC 08:06
this could be the shot-in-the-arm that JJB needs
if the many worlds interpretation is valid and when particles are entangled, all possible pair state permutations will exist, but in separate universe branches. henceforth, when the state of one of the entangled pair is measured and the appropriate correlated value is found to exist in the other, the observer is in fact discovering which of these universes he/she is in. no faster than light propagating required.
what excites me most about LOHAN is the 3D printing. why not use this extremely cool tech to print the truss and other bits as a single object?
i know LOHAN has weight issues and you can't print carbon fibre, but it might allow a clever design that uses less material and could not be produced using conventional fabrication methods.
Re: The employee was from Iran...
lol - you are quite right. nothing worse than a pedant who gets it wrong!
Re: The employee was from Iran...
they were speaking Farsi. pedantic, I know but it's a bit like saying someone conversing in Hebrew is speaking Jewish.
and I think his contribution to human culture will only be reappraised upwards with the passage of time.
Re: countries like Iran and Israel???
mate, I wouldn't even bother. he is just another ignorant troll.
seal the deal
i like your ingenious use of silicone (inspired by the real LOHAN?) but wonder if a simple latex ring seal (as in the original diagram) would not have worked. in my mind's eye the lid is pulled down sufficiently tightly to prevent slippage, especially if it is made out of non-slippery rubber/latex and was wide and flat.
right, i'm going to stop thinking about LOHAN's ring now and get back to work.
tinsel tits / evan davies
shurely shome mishtake - it's *twinkle* tits. on account of the impressive piercings he sports in the old papilla mammaria, er, area.
stuxnet delayed iran's nuclear weapons program long enough for duqu to be deployed. stuxnet was the warm-up act. duqu will be the main show. duqu will fuck with their systems ONCE THEY HAVE A VIABLE NUCLEAR DEVICE. beautiful.
But we know:
1. Your missus reads el reg (obviously, hence the anon)
2. She has an HTC Desire HD
3. She reads books on it
I'd wager more than the cost of the kindle that the number of wives described by the above three parameters is small enough to render you well and truly busted mate.
e-ink is currently monochrome only technology consumerside. this means it was never an option for the "fire". this means your gripe about the "fire" not being e-inked-up makes no sense. are you a daily mail journalist?
according to them the "fire" can *store* 17 million songs and 100,000 films.
The first commercial telegraph was in 1839. If two Babbage machines had been created around the same time and placed 10 miles or so apart... see where I'm going here?
