Re: Why would you assume that the black hole was not rotating?
Because it makes the math easier.
Don't we pay the police to bring criminal scum to justice?
Why do we need to pay charities to do the job that we're already paying the police to do out of our taxes?
Re: I Blame the EU
This is all because of pirates. Open your eyes people!
Re: I've been 'safed'
Is that a eunuch euphemism?
Bedroom head-shots. (That's not a euphemism.)
It is now.
Surely you mean containing? Or contained?
Internet Watch Foundation
Deciding what's acceptable for you to look at since 1996.
(If you don't remember, this was the organisation that effectively cut off access to the Wayback Machine, and blocked access to wikipedia because of a Scorpions album cover.)
No TV License here.
It's not my money they are pissing up the wall.
If I could up vote articles, I'd do it just for that reference.
How come India can do this
But the UK has to faff about with the likes of BT, who, let's face it; would have a hard time stringing a couple of tin cans together.
He sold $100M of software?
They shouldn't be putting him in prison, they should be giving him a job!
How many salesmen have sales figures even close to approaching that?
Re: Modern methods of computing like coding
Well it sure beats hardwiring connections to the valves by hand!
Re: rippled rocket exhaust
For her pleasure.
Wait a sec! This isn't the Ann Summers thead!
The guy that replaced Rebekah Brooks after the phone hacking scandal is now in charge of one of the UK's largest phone companies.
Something is raising a red flag here, but I just can't quite put my finger on it...
Damn, I didn't see Miranda Richardson on the list first time around!
How do I change my vote?
The council issued unencrypted laptops to staff when it had problems with its encryption software
Well that was daft.
What the council should have done was train their employees properly. (If they still can't use encryption tools after that, then the council needs to fire their incompetent staff).
It's just encryption, it's not rocket science.
The worst thing about censorship is
T**** ***** *** ****** *** ****!
Re: (Z,X,P,L & SPACEBAR anyone?)
Q, A, O and P surely!
Re: What's stopping me from having half the companies data anyways?
Not much. Apart from your honour as an IT professional.
I have to buy my own kit now?
Pencil, Paper and Slide Rule it is then!
Re: This thread is full of words that look like variable names I've seen.
Yes, absolutely awful code.
Written by a person who's native language was English.
Who's idea of a good variable name involves some of the worst hungarianesque notation (in an ide that will frigging tell you what type and what class a method belongs to) that I've ever seen.
This thread is full of words that look like variable names I've seen.
I maintain some awful code.
Re: Come on 150GB a month - that's a lot of pron :S
Some might argue that is not enough pron!
Your default password will be the ancient dance of my ancestors.
It goes: Aga do do do, push pineapple, shake the tree.
Report from planet Earth suggests planet Earth is important.
I find El Reg to be so humancentric. There are other planets with life out there (possibly,) you know!
Re: brave Playmonaut
Has a Playmonaut been named yet?
Re: a weekend with a porn star and a weekend with David Cameron
What's David Cameron going to be wearing?
(You can thank yourself for that disgusting mental picture you're now viewing.)
Re: How do you know the characteristics are not set?
Because hidden variable theories make predictions that aren't observed in experiments.
Motorola may not have anticipated the reaction of biblical literalists
Or maybe they did anticipate them, and thought, "We don't really care what a load of batshit crazy bible thumpers think", and then got on with the rest of their day.
Has anyone stopped to think of the consequences of this to the IT industry?
We're going to have bleary eyed developers wandering around looking for coffee and snack food. They'll sit about all day at their desks producing quirky random code...
Hang on, are we sure that developers aren't on pot already?
Penis Expert Business Cards
If you rub them they turn into a postcard!
Polishing the fingernail scratches off the window frame
You've got to take care of the evidence.
Or at least make sure that it points in someone else's direction :)
Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.
I think you'd better do what he says.
"You now have 15 seconds to comply."
Re: NASA wont
And probably starting up a ranch of buggalo before we've even got boots on the ground!
Re: As a nation (UK) sex has always been a taboo
I remember seeing more tits in Carry On movies from the 60's than anything else I ever saw on TV.
So we're decided then
The way to stop kids from accessing porn is to burn down all the hedges.
Never in human history have horny little teenagers... etc
No more so than the rest of the population that enjoys porn. If you think that a horny 15 year old doesn't have access to the same material, then you've severely underestimated the biological imperative to seek out sex that appears to exist in all young boys.
Too much time and money invested in worrying about the digital boogeyman
And not enough time spent by parents keeping an eye on their kids.
Re: For every nutter in the UK you get 5 in the US
Yes, but our nutters are British!
Re: Now what is the result if they are just fed ordinary tomatoes.
Are you insinuating that they didn't use a control group?
Re: We should not meddle in things only barely understood...
If I followed that maxim then I'd never get anything done!
Didn't I say the glacier algae would be the first wave?
Maybe when the next zombie apocalypse happens, you'll listen to me sooner!
I've seen a ruggedised mobile phone used to hammer a nail into a wall.
You can get nigh on indestructible phones, but they are bloody expensive.
The Zombie Apocalypse Begins.
I predict that these are the first wave of scouts for a larger zombie army.
Corporate tax is not a moral issue
Oh it so is! Just because it's a corporation and not a person doing it, doesn't absolve the corporation (and the people that make up that corporation) of their moral duty.
Re: Could she be riding on the coat tails
Well she's got no achievements or skills of her own.
Close your mouth Google.
It's going in the other end.
That is an obscene amount of money to spend on a toy
Feed starving children like Bill Gates? No, it's a V2 rocket for me!
We get to watch people die on mars on live TV?
I can't see how this could possibly go wrong.
