This would be a scathing post about self-discipline
But here I am wasting time on El Reg.

But here I am wasting time on El Reg.
They have actual windows that big.
Just try typing that phrase into a search engine.
Damn you Google autocomplete!
This is the biggest reason (among many others) that I mourned the passing of Jim Henson.
If you wanted a believable on-screen alien that could interact with the rest of the cast, that's the guy you went to.
It would take less Delta V to park it in orbit, and require a less massive ship for the astronauts to go and visit it.
(I am not an astrophysicist. Much of my knowledge of orbital mechanics has been cribbed from Kerbal Space Program.)
Get a chance to discover new and wonderful things about our solar system, its origins, its history, and what it's made of.
At that doesn't even scratch the surface of all the technology they'll be inventing to actually do it, and all the spin off technology that will inevitably come from that.
Apparently you ███'█.
They could have always just read it and memorised it.
They can't throw you in jail for remembering stuff.
If they don't come with lasers to turn drone copters into rapidly disintegrating fireballs, I'll be sorely disappointed.
It looks like it should fly!
You could ban the entire internet tomorrow, and I doubt it would have any effect on child molesters hanging around the local park.
It seems to me that Aleksandr Bortnikov is trying to treat a symptom rather than trying to treat the cause. ( If we assume that he is in earnest and he really does want to protect children )
All Anonymous seem to have done here is raise awareness of the EDL and make them look like victims.
Nice job breaking it anon!
Larger than a breadbox, but smaller than a solar system.
It's all relative.
I don't think Americans are really aware of a world beyond their borders.
Or does that only apply in the case of criminal proceedings?
And we tried recreating one of the Apollo missions. While we were building testing, (then rebuilding and testing again) and finally flying our rocket, we talked about the real life missions and all the training astronauts had to go through to not only get to the moon but to deal with almost every conceivable thing that they could think of that could possibly go wrong.
It's hard enough when the expected occurs. When the unexpected occurs, it's ingenuity and bravery like Luca Parmitanos that saves the day.
Every security flaw that can be found and eliminated is one less flaw an attacker can use to compromise a system and use it to attack more systems.
They aren't just marginalising the employee, they are destroying their soul.
I applaud his bravery.
Yeah, there's no way we could work out what that word meant from its Greek roots.
Don't the details of the exploit use insecurities in FireFox? Not Windows?
And that is a small submersible robot that can melt its way through the ice crust.
But I have to use the bus. How else am I supposed to get to work?
Are low profile women going to be able to get the same quality of service?
You could implement something like blink with css though (if you really really hated your users). Why use the blink tag when it only works in one browser?
Nice to see blink going the way of the marquee tag.
Off the the graveyard of bad design choices.
Rather than give me information about my friends that I'm already following, how about telling me who's looking at my information?
And, like with any other service, you tend to get what you pay for.
Is that black helicopters I can see circling overhead?
You could get american politicians under their bribery laws. Good luck finding someone to charge and prosecute them though.
Pays for it in loose change.
If they had then they would be crowing from every rooftop about this.
Why do they need a shadowy secret police like some sort of communist cold war state?
Bugger! I was going to go to the pub with friends tonight.
They would be running a torrent client. Not a server.
(Although technically, most torrent clients have a few ports open for other clients to connect to, which sort of makes them servers.)
It doesn't have to be a torrent client though. I can eat up 500Mb of bandwidth just copying a database.
Because my home machine constantly sits with port 3389 open for access. Most people have some sort of port open waiting for inbound connections, because it's a requirement of the software that they run.
I don't see how they can legislate this fairly, without screwing over 98% of ordinary users.
Obviously, they frisk each other.
America is now in a perpetual "War on Terror".
The great thing about the "War on Terror" is that it's wonderfully vague and no one really knows what it's all about.
After clicking on the house of commons link I was very unsurprised to learn that they are still hooked on chasing pedoterrorists.
I predict e-crime will only go up as we get laws banning the use of certain words in search engines.
You'd probably come out a bit pixelated at the other end. I don't want a face like a JPEG compression artifact!
It's thinking like that that makes it pointless.
Get out and vote. Use your voice, or someone else will say things in your name.
Best idea since the youtube utility that reads your post back to you before it's sent :D
You could stop voting for politicians that you don't like.
Or you can get out and vote for ones that represent your interests.
Those are pretty much your options.
I thought that's how journalism was done nowadays.
Someone issues a press release. Other news outlets copy and paste it. Sometimes verbatim, with no research done, no facts gathered and no witnesses interviewed.
They were smoking pot, they don't deserve a death sentence.
What is wrong with you?
And just what's wrong with the current mechanism of, "Give us your money, or we'll put you in prison?"
There's an easy way to find out.
Enter a search term into Bing. If it pops up a message, then that item is on the list. You could even automate it like a dictionary attack (Except here we're testing a search term for a positive or negative response.)
Though IANAL, and I don't know how illegal it would be to possess knowledge of the forbidden search terms.
