Re: AI is hard @ toxicdragon
You know for a tech site I have wondered this a lot. What is wrong with you? It is cool. An autonomous thing did something. thats two marks on the cool scale. All it needs to do is have jet boosters and glow in the dark for the full set.
Show some wonder in the world.
Re: AI is hard
Re: Quark-gluon plasma
Thats my favorite theory, some kind of dimensional reproduction.
Re: Ours were all Pauls
Its a song by little richard, used in the opening to Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. And probably others.
Re: If you stare into the abyss
Gaze ye not into the abyss, lest the abysses boyfriend get narky.
Exactly. I didn't say I cooked them.
Garlic works too, in a slightly back of the throat way if you follolw me.
Whats wrong with onions? They are just about the only food I can taste these days, can't have too many
I'm still giggling at that.
Re: White pylon
Christ I only said that I think they look cool. Didn't realise it would turn into this, sill I suppose its nice to have a discussion.
Re: White pylon
Well yeah probably, but they still look cool.
Sorry but I like these, almost look like something out of a Sci Fi film, now if we can just get the upright barrel style windmills instead of the propeller kind I will be happy.
Re: The flying car
As did golf club + hip flask.
You delete the game, optionally putting it in a sub folder you never open. If its a game you think you will hate odds are you will wait till it is on sale and pay no more than a fiver, personally that's a risk I am willing to take.
humans as a species, to me at least, seem to want to consider themselves better than everyone else, and they will do so how ever possible.
Do you? Good way of getting sheep spawn indoors, which is just irritating if you ask me, the animals can stay in the 2 deep 6 wide hole I dug for them out doors.
Have to agree, I am not the most delicate person and have broken army style tin mugs before now.
So having something really tough would be brilliant.
Why does the NSA's boss care so much about backdoors when he can just steal all our encryption keys?
Then I honestly think at that point some form of action will be taken, who by I don't know but when it gets to the jackboots at dawn aspect then something will happen.
"NSA director Admiral Mike Rogers has said it is vital Uncle Sam's crimefighters snoop on people"
Fuck. Right. Off.
Re: NASA is setting the date
That is the coolest and scariest thing I've read in a while, thanks.
Re: Timeless wireless communication ...
Have to say I prefer the horrible histories version
Re: Reminds me
My favorite idea is to let 3 year olds design the danger sign, whatever they could come up with should be fairly universal.
Re: Is this a tech site or not?
Hackers is watchable, mainly for the soundtrack IMO, if you are drunk enough.
Re: I nominate
I thought lord of war was good.
Because its microsoft, a company that has a habit of suddenly throwing away the rubber gloves and gallons of KY they showed you and promised they would use and replacing them with a 6 inch wide masonry drill, tree felling wedges and Naga Chillies.
Thing is the exact same thing can be said for his argument, he wants "move fast and break things" model, this wont work on everything. Yes agile wont work on it all but then again, making software as quickly as possible, pushing it out THEN fixing it after the nuclear dust clouds dissipate is not a good idea.
Did not know about those, thanks
I know there are NOTAMs in place for this, although it just said "closed" but I guess you can infer what that means from the location, what is there in place for the boats? I would assume some kind of marker or radio signal maybe but I don't actually know, can anyone offer advice?
Just as a quick response to frank.
In the standard single player game there is no females but there is a black playable character, however in the online mode, you can play as females, and since you can basically do the same things there as in single player there is nothing to stop you from doing what was suggested.
Could see some potential issues with that, I admit that I don't know much about fire fighting equipment but is there enough clearance in those masks for a pair of these? If its just for video then something like a go pro could do the same job? Although I admit there is a possibility for building plans/team locations and so on.
the ads I have seen feature a woman waving her phone about and having it scan things like websites and tv shows. It may be useful but personally I don't like waving my phone around in a crowded bar to find out what track is currently playing, could just be me.
Not all gun ranges are outside, the one I use isn't, and as for shooting clays sure its not done all the time but its the Christmas shoot soon, we do shoot them then, as well as polos, they make a nice noise when hit.
It wasn't a sound stage in Nevada, it was a sound stage on mars. Get your facts right.
Re: Wheres the ambition?
Why are people like you never happy? This project has a robot/probot/whatever which makes it cool, it will then take place on another planet which makes it cooler, and then it will do something that is a great challenge, that makes it both even cooler and something worthwhile. Learn to love the world a bit.
Re: Not quite sure...
You are not the only one, thats what made me stop playing, I cant remember the exact wording but one of the NPCs said she felt "really current" at winning something or other, that alone made me stop playing, games are supposed to be fun, not whiny emo stuff with phrases that make literally no sense.
Why is it, that with all this advancement of human knowledge even if its not the boson, is that if it isn't, will Hawking get his money back?
Amazing photos, although I cant decide if the crease I am seeing in the first photo of earth is some kind of light effect or not. Can anyone shed any light?
Most of the "triple A" still do, bet you would be lucky to get 10 hours out of the new CoD for the £50 price, so not much has changed.
Note: I refuse to count online play, there will always be issues like the servers becoming totally deserted the second the new one is released, if you can connect to them at all and so on.
Gimme FF 3 any day, at least 40 odd if not more hours of play and I can get it for a tenner.
Re: Three light minutes a week?
The dates at the bottom definatly say 20 and 21 of oct.
Re: "Serious Crime Bill"?
Ah, its probably a different version than the one I am thinking of then
I thought it was obvious enough that the joke icon wasn't needed?
Re: "Serious Crime Bill"?
If this is the sketch I think it is, its not python, its the two ronnies + stephen fry,
He sits in a chair and tells pointless stories that dont go anywhere? And is unable to act like he knows which way up a musical instrument goes?
Its about time, I spent most of my childhood, and more of my adulthood than I care to admit, wondering why I don't live in a Sci Fi funland, if real world stuff starts to look a lot more like the old films and comics, bring it on.
Re: The trouble with "older" sci-fi...
"Night's Dawn universes would make much better TV" This, or at least a 3 part film although even then it wouldn't do it justice
"All four officers have been put on gardening leave with full pay while an investigation is carried out."
Oh poor them, they must feel like they getting the worst punishment in the world.
Re: Thumbs Down
Whats a circle apart from a square that is unable to use a shaving razor properly?
@AC It is also illegal as buggery. Best not get caught with that thing.
Just out of interest say you used it on the bus in a remote location, something happens that means you cant turn it off, what then? Mobile phones may be irritating but considering the upsides, I can tune them out quite easily.
