I remember the days when I played Rainbow 6 Live Demo when Xbox live first came out, I'm just annoyed I didn't migrate my old xbox live account when it moved to the 360 :(
Is it only a British thing
In the UK there seems to be a Pay wall at around £45-50k where tech people don't get payed any more money.
The only way to get passed this pay wall is to become a consultant working for yourself or become a manager?
Always confused me why Managers get payed more than people who can and do add more value to the company.
Why cant a manager earn 20-30% less than the tech'ys below him?
The answer is both A & B
Re: F***ing brilliant @Ian Johnston
That's why you have a little document that informs them that they will now accept all risk for the potential damage of their exception.
Making someone sign their name on the dotted line for liability is a fantastic enlightening tool, you soon find they piss off back to their little cubical .

Americans did it not once but twice!!!
We all know that David is on borrowed time.
His own party think he's wrong (how much to give Europe) and that its of such importance they can go to Oz for a ITV funded holiday.

Re: Ah But
It has a neural inhibitor, so were safe
whats the point
1 light year in distance is 5,865,696,000,000 miles
47 light years in distance is 275,687,712,000,000 miles
If we could travel at 10% the speed of light it would take around 4,700 years to make the 47 light year trip.
(if some one could check my sums that would be stella)

Re: The National Lottery
People who buy more than one tick are morons, to improve your chances of winning the lotto by 1% you need to by around 14,000 tickets.
It always amazes me when I see some people who struggle to pay bills spending £20-30 a week on lotto tickets.
But they are also the same people who pay Sky £50 month when they can afford to put cloths on their kids backs.
Its a sad state of affairs when the people who cant afford something are the one's spending the most money on it. Yet the people who could afford are the once that do it as a flutter at a £1 a week.
yet it still made
11.9m in profit!
Greed is alive an well

Re: Well of course they do
I do wonder when companies will realize that it could be financially beneficial to offer good money for Zero day exploits.
Look a flying pig

Not a deity
just a bunch of aliens who deal in the plant construction racket.
Re: How devious
I was once told to imagine how intelligent the average person is; then to realise that half the population are even more imbecilic than that.
Re: Meyerson predicted Intel's move away from speed to cores?
And that its not physically, practically or probably legally viable to continually pour Liquid nitrogen onto the chip so it doesn't melt had nothing to do with it?
Being commercially viable was probably way way way down the list.

If its unstable, does it really count as an element if it just quickly turns into another element?
Re: Er, he was trying to hack them?
My Bank gave me their local number because their 0845 wasn't part of my BT inclusive plan; I got charged for every call I made to them.
I will stop banking with you was a pretty good motivator for them to give me the local number.
