Honeybee boffin STINGS OWN WEDDING TACKLE... for SCIENCE

Gazareth

Pretty sure Schmidt also says his own results aren't that useful. The numbers are more or less plucked out of the air.

Closer to an episode of Jackass IMO.

Just because it happens in a lab don't make it science!

Re: « Films about people sitting at computers have always been a hard sell »

Good shout. Also the film that introduced me to the Stones (I'm still well short of mid-life :))

"Give it a year, and I'd say there'd be no more game releases for the PS3"

How do you drive a supercomputer round a Formula 1 track?

Gazareth

I was lucky enough to visit when it was still Renault, very cool site!

Photos were off limit most everywhere, except one room where they had notable cars. The difference between Prost's motor and Schumacher's Benneton were pretty striking!

Re: What a load of bollocks.

Since when has bloke been an insult?

Cnut was a King of England, Denmark and others way back when. He was succeeded by Harthacnut, who was only 50% as nasty.

Re: Is it just me...

Personally I place the Bong articles in the 'brilliant content' category. Up there with Stob for me!

Each to their own though :)

IT mercenaries and buy-to-let landlords are my HEROES - here's why

Gazareth

Re: Loss of long term renting

Sorry, that should have been:

It's so the agents can charge you and the landlord £200 each every 6 months to change the dates on a contract.

Gourmet chemists sniff out ultimate cheese on toast

Gazareth

Granary, toasted both sides, then a lick of butter, mature cheddar, worcester sauce & a sprinkle of pepper.

Served with tea, natch.

Fukushima switchboard defeated by rat

Gazareth

Re: Black Sheep is not a Peter Jackson film

But his company Weta Workshops were heavily involved.

And it's more or less a remake of Brain Dead, which actually is Peter Jackson's best work.

Review: Dell XPS 10 Windows RT tablet and dock

It was, until they bought Alienware. XPS is more the 'Premium' brand rather than performance nowadays.

Microsoftie's tell-all on 'rival-flinging' Ballmer: The politics of disbelief

Gazareth

Re: "If Elop was not a Trojan horse, then he would have kept Symbian and Meego alive"

@Eadon: "Elops destruction of Nokia only makes sense if he's a trojan horse, nothing else fits."

Seems odd that you'd make the assertion that Ballmer is doing the same thing to MS, and then come up with that in the very same thread!

Why not say:

Ballmer's destruction of Microsoft only makes sense if he's a (Linux/Unix/open source) trojan horse, nothing else fits.

Halo 4 game review

Re: Good review...

Easy explanation for lack of fauna - any species that run towards explosions/gun fire/big metal exoskeletons have become extinct. The fauna's there, it's just heading rapidly away from you :)

Slideshow: A History of Horror in 20 Scary Games

Gazareth

Loved the 7th Guest

D was good as well, although I suspect it hasn't aged well.

Half Life gave me a few jumpy moments, and the Ravenholm level in HL2...

The opening of Bioshock, where you're trapped in the Bathysphere had the heart racing too!

Dishonored game review

Re: Glitches

It's not a Bethesda title - they're just publishing it.

Arkane Studios are the development team.

Enjoying it so far, do keep thinking at points that Batman: AC was more fun though.
