Is it me or does everything seem to be suffering from an unspecified glitch lately?

Re: Once braked into a stable orbit...
In peter hamiltons nights dawn trilogy he explains this exact thing, basically the asterioids are moved into orbit, the ore is liquidized and foamed, then launched down onto the planet using aerobrake and lands into the sea. I will admit it is weaponised 30 seconds later but its something.
Re: > Let's see how that works out in practice...
Theory is when you know why something should work but it doesn't, practice is where something works and you don't know why. Where I work we combine both.
Re: I still want my 1TB iPod "Classic"
If you just want it for music I can recommend the sansa clip plus. Has expandable memory for micro SD and while the screen is very simple it seems to last ages on a charge.
Re: anyone wearing one who wants to talk to me
I cant find it but I am sure that there was an article on here about that very scenario, cant quite remember the outcome but it was something like they have to be provably off, ie not wearing them or something. Can't quite remember.
I don't really have anything useful to add, I just want to say that the word "podule" is fun to say. Podule podule podule.
Re: "first known example"
They did, as did gadget show too
Re: not much use...
What about the Managerium?
Have to admit I play FTB, don't know of any servers running that.
Damn you, now I have to try that, so much for getting work done today.
Re: Dammit, it's always Hal
Because female robotic voices sound like they come from a computerised Monty Python style pepperpot woman.
The super nova advert worked perfectly, the nova 5 went a little awry
Re: USA had Desert Storm..
I might be remmebering this one but didnt top gear have a few incidents with portable bogs?
Could be the next series might be in korea.
Butthurt is not used as a homophobic thing on the internet at least, it basically defines this exact "teacher teacher the mean boy looked at me" mentality displayed by the ULA with this exchange. The only one getting offended here was you.
"...from the likely (a car stopping at a red light) to the unlikely (blowing through it)." He has never seen the traffic round here then.
Its not really the same as having your own system but there are quite a few online SDRs, I go on http://www.160m.net/ myself. (requires Java)
Re: In this particular case, why bother?
Always wondered about the point of a fallout shelter besides peace of mind, I was born in the late 80s so I missed the nuclear crises so maybe its just because of that I don't get it. And even if it would help who still has a fully stocked shelter today? I have seen some odd sets of stairs and odd coloured concrete slabs with those slots for removal in places around my universities campus which I have never seen people use, admittedly that's not proof of shelters but hidden in plain sight and all that. Surely they still wont be actively stocked?
Re: Is it my age?
Mid 20s here so close to the intended audiences age on social media. I get that urge too, never understood it.
Re: Well that will be worth anticipating
Punch trees, fall in lava, kill stuff. How is that not a traditional holy wood plot?
The one I go on is robocode, still fairly active too. http://robocode.sourceforge.net/
Re: nice lump in middle too
It was the creatures from Klendathu, just their aim was a bit off.
Re: Carnage on the streets
Or the system goes sentient and we get driverless Burnout.
Yup, they were all recorded on a sound stage on mars

Clairvoyance or time travel?
I would love to have one of these locally to play with. Would have to be a slower version I admit but still.
Re: How is this a tablet?
"Enormo-Slab ... Phlablet".
I prefer the all in one moniker "Fondleslab"
Re: Err, what?
Probably digging myself into an even deeper hole but TENS does not hurt that badly.
"while being more conductive than copper"
They will probably need to fix that before I use this.
Re: Class 1 A.I
Nice system, would recommend one small change though, I think your steps 11 and 12 are the wrong way round, would think that classifying it as smarter on earth then the universe would make more sense under this system.
Missed a trick here
Why not "You are here, your luggage is in alpha centauri"?
A bit more than just disappeared, everything he did has been erased.

Re: Where did the design come from?
Those are forbidden words in these kinds of projects
This has probably been said already, but the phrase that sticks out most is "There were no mistakes like that at all."
To me this implies that any privacy breech was done intentionally. Or is my parsing broke today?
Just remember a sponge for the blancmange
"DNA jiggery-pokery" I thought that's what they were doing?
Re: Simple enough
Ach! Milk? Gross!
Is there a version not in teeny eye-strain-o-vision?
Re: Speed demon..
I never did find out what Zion dub was.
"They took out the micromanagement like power lines and water pipe"
They did? Don't know about the others but they are there on SC3K and 4.
Re: They also had to invent a new level of fire danger.
Fire danger warnings, as in a potential for how safe it would be to light a fire, not what it is now.
Re: This reminds me
You actually had to experience that to consider it a bad thing?
