OH JUST FUCK OFF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If memory serves me the EHCR was written into law also as part of the Northern Ireland peace setlment. That decision is backed both by an Internationally binding treaty between UK & ROI and also approved by a large majority by referendum in N.Ireland as part of the Good Friday Agreement.
I think removing ECHR from UK law will be much harder that most people think
"And if we're letting the Scots take the high road, quietly making Wales a sovereign nation whether they like it or not, we'd have to let Ulster decide its own destiny."
Ulster is not part of the United Kingdom. Ulster is one of the 4 provinces of the whole Island of Ireland, along with Leinster, Munster and Connacht. Ulster contains 9 counties. 3 of those counties are part of the Republic of Ireland, whilst the other 6 form the country known as Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland is one of the 4 constituent countries of the United Kingdom.
I mean, come on.. time you learnt about your own sovereign state, then you can start pontificating on flags !
Cross of St. David ?? Looks like you need educating on your own flag matey. It's the Cross of St. Patrick .. it's Irish. There is no Welsh component on the Union Flag.
Though one thing led to another, next it was Eye of the Beholder, then the full Baldur's Gate (still on gog.com for around 6 quid).
And maybe if every advert for cleaning products/cooking/shopping/washing and general fuckwittery didn't just have women in them them accompanied by a man who is portrayed as a moron, lech, or incompetent maybe the world would start to be a better place.
Actually at the moment the EHCR is all that stands between us and the extremes of our own government who must be looking at Putin with envy.
You might as well say software doctor as both are equally shite descriptions.
If they were engineers it would be done properly. Que lots of engineering fail examples from frustrated "framework monkeys"
Can't help but be suspicious of the drive to get everyone online. You'd almost think that the govt has something to gain if we do all our communications down one pipe, but hey governments can be trusted .. right ?
Unlike Diesel, modern petrol engines have 3 way catalytic converters which do reduce NOx (2NOx → xO2 + N2).
3 Way addresses Hydrocarbons, CO and NOx
When operated in a closed cloop they operate with the ECU to maintain the petrol engine in the ideal range for the cat to operate most efficiently. Diesel engines currently can't achieve this.
Details from Volkswagen ironically:
I think it really is time for diesel to be restricted to commercial traffic only, modern low capacity petrol engines are almost as efficient as diesel and an order of magnitude cleaner on pollutants such as NOx with current cat technology. In fact a modern petrol car following a diesel helps to clean up after the oil burner. I currently have an Audi A3 2.0 Diesel, but I'm trying an Alfa Giulietta 1.4 Multi-air petrol on a weeks loan/trial, which I believe is one of the most advanced of the new gen petrol engines. It gives me 170 bhp, 0-60 in 7 and a bit seconds, and averaging 51 mpg on motorway and 39 mpg overall.
Just look at modern hybrids, the internal combustion element is petrol, not diesel.
Personally I'm converted back to petrol.
Did they borrow that lady on the vid from radio 4 ?
Who nicked my piano ??
Nothing whatsoever to do with rewards, remuneration or anything like that, purely a matter of balance. I've no problem with your articles, I enjoy them though they are necessarily written from a certain point of view and a perfectly valid one at that. However the argument from the other side of the fence is absent, apart from the comments, and if the Register feels that articles on topics such as this and economic principle and theory are of interest then they need to be balanced. Whatever people think economics is not a science, large aspects are open to opinion and interpretation, and yours is one of many.
So it would be nice to hear the opinion from those with somewhat opposing views, I'm sure almost everything you've put in this article could be interpreted differently and a different conclusion reached by an economist starting from a different viewpoint.
Whilst Tim's articles are interesting they are the view of one side of the economic spectrum only, and any criticism or attempts at rebuttal are restricted to those of us on these forums. Whilst I'd hate to see the Register become too focussed on economics, isn't it time we had the views from the opposite side of the fence from the Adam Smith Institute. This is hardly balanced reporting.
Software types are not engineers..... just stating a fact.
Engineers can also develop software, but software developers are not engineers
Please don't use Now TV as an example of how to do content access. Quality on sport and movies is piss poor and deliberately so in order to protect the full subscription service. I'd put it on a par with VHS video rather than compare it with Netflix.
It's probably the fact that that most cars use a CAN type bus to exchange message between different systems. For example most car music systems offer speed depended volume to cover road noise so there's one connection. The nice display on these Infotainment systems are great for systems messages too so it now must exchange info with other systems handling brakes (wear, ABS), engine (temp, ECU issues etc.).
Once you have access to that common bus you have the opportunity to send "trusted" messages between most systems in the car.
Runs expensive TV and online campaigns implying that the only risk to children is fathers and other males. They are a lobby group, don't give them a penny.
Oh I don't know .. how about the 7th of July ?
I find the whole "7/7" monicker a bit offensive. It's like the UK media thought - well the US had a snappy 9/11 title for their horror, we should have one too. There is no reason for it other than to ape the US media, it never happended in the past. Can't they respect the victims without having to "tag" the event.
Watching the updates install would have been the most entertaining part of the evening
Aircraft and Power stations are hardly consumer products. If you are expecting future autonomous vehicle software to be designed using the same technologies (and budgets) as Airbus and Boeing, you are misguided.
Something has to be "on" waiting for the "wakeup" call
I mean who though that sticking a ginormous image at the top of each story, leaving a couple of paragraphs of text visible was a good idea?
What's with all the empty space?
What's with the grey "visited" links. OK it's different but other than that what's the point, it makes it harder to see where I've been.
The category heading above each story on the front page... what's that , some sort of eye test? A bit bigger please.
Overall I'd have to rate the changes as pretty poor.
It's just a Skoda Octavia/Seat Leon/VW Golf/VW Beetle/Audi A3/Audi TT (arranged in increasing order of dullness).
Styling is typically German .. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
And as for Diesel, commercial use should be left alone, personal use should be hammered financially. Breathable air seems more important to me than CO2 and anyway turbo petrol is getting better each year.
Alex Salmond put in a higher bid, the Scots are going to need kit for their own army
Isn't there a requirement for wooden packaging bound for the US, such as pallets etc., to be certified as heat treated against pests etc.
I could be wrong though but worth checking.
Initial screen says "your notes are synced to the cloud" , uninstalled.
My absolute favourite film. At least Parry will find it easier to move the clouds around where he is now.
RIP Mr. Williams
Repetitive, dull, each game looks very much like the last -just like Windows
And what happens to the power assisted steering and brakes when the engine is cut off at 70mph. I wouldn't want to be in the oncoming traffic stream in that instance.
My daughter did a survey while at primary school. They spent an hour at the local Tesco counting the number of people who didn't return their trolley. In that case it turned out that 82% of those who left them at their arse rather than return them were women.
Fired up my old Acorm Atom recently, built from a kit in 1980. Wouldn't start until I removed the Floating Point Eprom then up it came. Probably asking a bit much for an EPROM to hold it's data for 33 years, even when stored in the dark.
If you are going to complain about the use of the term "UK" you might want to learn what it actually represents first. Last time I checked those folks in N. Ireland were part of the UK also.
They may want to apply that research to some of the current US Republican politicians. My bet is the megacheiran scores higher on brain capacity.
Not that there is anything at all wrong with Skoda's. In fact I'm sure Skoda drivers, like the rest of us non Audi types, can't resist laughing at those who pay way over the odds for the same car with an Audi badge.
But then you have to be a particular type of tw*t to drive an Audi anyway
I still remember his RI Christmas lectures in 1977. Voyager had been lauched a few months earlier and featured quite a bit in those lectures.
Part of the first 1K was used as "Zero Page". This was used in the Atom & BBC Micro as an extra set of 256 fast registers as the 6502 could address this area using a single byte. The rest was buffers etc IIRC.
I concur that the BBC OS 1.2 was a superb piece of work. I disassembled and dumped the whole thing on a dot matrix printer, the printout was about 20cm thick. There were all sorts of gems in there, the whole thing was so elegant and well thought out.
That's what happens when you are nothing more than a glorified technology reseller.
Why are we paying attention to these people any more. The modern equivalent of Snake Oil salesmen.
Provided you can find a VPN provider who isn't going to pass on your connection history at the drop of a hat/brown envelope/court order.
Lots of leaks at the same time should do that ... Ok I'm going
.. I wonder how the tunnel is doing?
The constant drive from government to ensure everyone has "fast" internet just encourages more and more of us to use the internet as our primary form of communication. As "citizens" do their communication, purchasing, and even social interaction through one "pipe" it makes life so much easier for the state to keep tabs on us and also to restrict what information we have access to. The cynic in me says that this is exactly why governments are so intent on rolling out fast connections to everyone.
Indeed, I'd bet that Sky have included employee PAYE & NI contributions in that. Correct me if I'm wrong once a salary is paid that money belongs to the individual so the individual pays that tax.
I knew that Android Profanisaurus app would come in handy. It's not just for giggling to yourself on the train after all!
.. they couldn't cover theor own arses. I've done plenty of work in the Public Sector, work they are more than capable of doing themselves. I've also been told that the only reason I'm there is so that they can cover their own backsides, "after all the consultant said .... so how can it be my fault"
It's nothing to do with 'Government fiddling the emissions rules', diesel carries a higher weighted VED because it is more polluting. Whilst CO2 emissions may be lower for the moment, levels of local pollution are much higher for diesel engines than petrol. The extra VED costs reflect the extra damage that diesel engines do to the local environment over petrol - see http://www.environmental-protection.org.uk/transport/car-pollution/.
For example diesel has much higher NOx emissions than any recent petrol engine which can affect those with illnesses such as Asthma. In fact a modern petrol engine vehicle with an active CAT following a diesel vehicle is actually cleaning up some of the diesel emissions. With modern petrol engines, e.g. Alfa/Fiat Multiair and VW TSi, producing CO2 levels similar to diesel, the differentiating factor is that diesel engines are more damaging and therefore are taxed more.
