All your details belong to me!
Because those look like Fleet Air Arm sea harriers on the main image: not RAF...
Piece of Shit terminal?

Bike Balls is probably a safe bet when it comes to Kickstarter. It's a product that involves putting LEDs and batteries into a "ball sack" that hangs from your saddle (not that I'd want a pair). I'd only invest in two kinds of kickstarter projects:
Simple things like BikeBalls. I backed Exploding kittens, and surprise surprise, they managed to deliver a cardgame that was promised.
Complex/ambitious projects backed with a small amount of cash. Elite Dangerous was a good example: £20 for a piece of software as a deliverable. Had it failed, I could have wasted that money any other number of frivelous ways instead.
Paying thousands for things like that homebrew contraption really is leaving yourself open...
Paris because she's cheap and not too complex...
To do a playmobil reenactment of a Playmobil heist, you would need Playmobil models of Playmobil. At 1:24 scale, the models of the models would be 1:576. The best way to recreate this off the shelf would be to see if you could get a model ship of 1:570 scale with people. Although 1:600 is more common as it represesnts about 1/10th of a nautical mile to the foot (new register standard for scale?).
Even then, it wouldn't be a Playmobil heist of Playmobil, but a Playmobil heist of Airfix...
My mother-in-law had a wireless printer that failed to print every month. Her work-around was to re-install the software each time she wanted to use it. Turned out the software simply allocated a static IP address to the printer when it installed. She turns the printer off for a few weeks, and it is allocated a different IP address when she then turns it back on to print. I'm sure there's a nifty driver/software solution, but I just reserved a static IP address to the MAC in the router. That way, it should work with any other devices that she wants to use it with in the future.
I didn't want any reward, as harmony with the in-laws is priceless!
I don't see this paying its way in asymetrical warfare, and I'd hate to be a GI in a war where such capabilities were really needed....
The BOFH devises a red button that nobody can resist...
Part of me thinks yes, and part of me thinks no.
then it is a bit hypocritical to get the authorities involved and take the case to court. You know: those same authorities you want to overthrow and replace with a free-for-all vacuum.
Seriously though, when I was doing work experience, I met a guy who spent half of every working day taking numbers from a dozen spreadsheets from different engineering departments and manually entering them into one master spreadsheet. He had been manually repeating exactly the same process for years.
...would be 5 F-35 competing against 30 or 40 A-10C, accounting for the cost of purchasing and maintaining those numbers of aircraft.
Reported on the BBC today: the UK is reducing the F-35 B orders from 36 per carrier (72) to the two carriers "sharing 12" (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-34077719). I'd hate to be going to the Falklands in 1982 with 12 jets. Two Harriers were lost in a mid-air collision in that conflict. That would be 1/6th of your F-35 jets wiped out.
Thanks for that guys! I always feel my education is enhanced with every visit to this site. Even if it's completely unrelated to my profession.
Finally, a name to apply to that irritating, overused-by-marketing genre.
Loved the rest of the story, however!
It will run a text version of Crysis:
You are flying through the alien caverns
Your nanosuit is configured to maximum speed
You see a button.
What wouldst thou do?
I saw a documentary once where they burned a policeman with farm animals in this big wicker statue to appease the gods. The presenter had three nipples and all; it was really weird.....
Such a cool word. I hope it's on their job titles!
Started listening to the Jurassic Park film score after reading this....
With the drought they're having, there will be no need for robotic lawnmowers.
and a few retinas for bonus points....
"The current model is ground-mounted, but Lockheed says its goal is to develop a version that can be mounted on vehicles"
When can we expect the shark mounted model?
Surely if you ignore them, they'll go away, right?
"This will include anything a "reasonable person" would consider to be sexual, "so this could be a picture of someone who is engaged in sexual behaviour or posing in a sexually provocative way"
This is so open to abuse. As an extreme example, if you were to upload a picture of a woman without her "headscarf", there are a number of ethnic minorities that would consider that sexual.
I'm sure that this can be dealt with using existing laws, no?
A 747-400 with GE engines gives 2.76 kNorris of thrust. So this rocket's thrust is equal to ~41 kNorris. I don't think that a 747 thrust would make a good Register standard unit as there are too many variations and configurations of the aircraft. This might lead to confusion.
I wonder what you would do with 12.619 kiloJubs in low earth orbit?
He crashed out and left his drones behind.
So long as they are our cute fluffy pets, or "companions". Tough luck for cows, pigs and chickens.
When you hold the book in your hands to read a story, the opposite book is upside down, facing out. So the final insult to this entire literary disaster is that when you read “Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer,” it appears that you are so fucking dumb, you’re reading “Barbie: I Can Be an Actress” upside down.
I'm so jealous. Thanks for this great article!
"Moreover, XP's decline has flattened: cheapskates, ignoramuses and the brave clearly feel little incentive to move to another version of Windows."
Add into that people who spent £50k+ on a scientific/engineering/electronic/mechanical instrument where Windows XP was the only option from numerous vendors whose corporate structures saw it as "industry standard". Perhaps you should add "The locked in" into this category....
Wow, 185.0642 pieces of Linguine, or 2.8104 Double Decker busses weighing in at 15.5 kJubs
But only 0.1874 times the length of a Brontosaurus according to the Register's automated online standards conversion calculator, which puts a single Brontosaurus at 15 Double Decker busses (just under 140 Metres). I know that the Brontosaurus is a misclasification of Dinosaur, but the Wikipedia redirect puts this species (Apatosaurus) as averaging 23 Metres in Length. Could there be a reference I'm missing here, or is there a fundemental problem with the Register SI measurement system. Such a glaring error would surely throw the commentard community into chaos!
I've spoken quite a bit to a couple of relatives who are professors of mental health at a university. They both say that bipolar disorders and depressions are impossible to treat without drugs. The chemical inbalances are insurmountable by any amount of support and motivation for the sufferer. This will be the 10% of cases you're talking about.
The bottom line is that society really needs to remove the stigma attached to mental health disorders.
"Only 39 individuals were on the Registered Sex Offenders' list, said the NCA."
A CRB only shows that you haven't been caught. We're sleepwalking into a witch hunt of guilty unless proven innocent.
I hope that their move up to Media City in Salford will start to give them a more balanced perspective in this regard...
Alien icon because I just feel like one today...
What we need is another standard. I guess 1 more standard is better than 100 more...
A fool and his drone are soon parted...
We all make mistaykes, but I just like to highlight the ones that end up being unintentionally funny with the Grammar Nazi icon....
"WD has _bought_ out a Thunderbolted My Passport Pro external drive with power delivered over the speedy data cable."
So they acquired some other company that were doing this and re-branded their technology? Or is that a typo?
To put that figure into perspective, there are nearly six times as many people living on Easter Island (or Rapa Nui, if you prefer) than were actively testing the Windows 8 version of Firefox.
"Entrants also need to be careful that the logo is one that can be pronounced in other European languages, not just in English."
Probably why they didn't choose a Glaswegian:
"Jimmy in Flight", or JIF for short...
I used to love it in the early days, when they put religious programming under the "Factual" category!

BBC2 and BBC4 “spread too little money over too much,” and one of the two spectrum-hogging channels could go.
BBC4 is one of the best channels that came out on freeview. Especially when you compare it to the trash that's on BBC3...
Fact is, it should be an all or nothing implementation. Who will hold you at knife-point and decide whether to steal your phone, or not, based on whether it can be remotely bricked? They might realise it's not worth stealing a NZ$24 phone, but a shiney touchy black mirror; they'll take it and flog it for whatever it's worth. Make them all lock-down-able ; or else don't bother at all.
YOU MEAN THE VALUE OF BITCOIN CAN FALL?
You think it's bad with the number of cars taking up road space with only 1 person in them... Wait until the fleets of empty driverless cars being sent to free parking take over!
Personally, I'd have nominated Eadon for his enthusiasm alone...
