Re: I don't recognise actresses in the cinema, but...
While it looks quite like her, I don't think it is. Probably just some random redhead.
Steampunk is back again?
Awesome. Brass cogs for everyone!
Screw Electronic Cocaine
From observing my co-workers, it's more like electronic pot.
This reminds me of that time that Sony snuck a rootkit onto my machine
And no one was arrested.
Re: What happens when they get struck by micro-meteorites?
I guess they would coat the vulnerable parts in that new self healing ballistic gel.
Once I've bought the hardware. It's mine, and I'll run whatever I like on it.
Likewise, once I've bought the software, it's mine to use any way I feel like.
Re: Isn't this why the "Read Me" file was invented.
Well yeah. But some people really need a large sign in a 90 point font to actually pay attention to something.
The printed approach should get everyone that doesn't need a frickin neon sign to get their attention.
Re: Can't make sense of this article
It doesn't have to be dense. It just has to be gravitationally bound.
Don't like BTs service?
Stop paying them. They'll get the message.
Re: I'm overweight as it is.
Depends how dense it is I guess.
I ride that particular section of railway.
I honestly think that Bigjigs could do a better job than London Midland.
(tbh, a zoo full of drunken monkeys could probably do a better job than London Midland.)
'Physical pressure' from Iran’s cyber cops killed blogger
Yeah, standing on someone's neck in a jack boot will do that.
In most hard drives, there's an itty bitty hole to allow the hard drives internal pressure to equalise with the external air pressure. I'm guessing that drives using helium would have to necessarily be sealed and pressurised, Which could cause problems for the drive heads when the helium eventually leaks out.
Hydrogen tends to be quite reactive
It's harder to keep a hold of than helium, and it eats metal.
Re: the user cannot unlink this account.
But what if I want to sell my game on the second hand market?
For years radios had been operated by means of pressing buttons and turning dials
Now this means that you have to sit infuriatingly still if you want to keep listening to the same programme.
Zeppelins in the skies everywhere!
The plot revolves around hackers and computer virus infections.
So 90 minutes of a guy doing a SQL injection attack followed by a sysadmin doing a restore from backups.
So not spread by coughing then?
Looks like I'm going to need a new reason to be annoyed by people that don't cover their mouth when they cough.
Kick them where it hurts Ofcom
Contracts should be fair to both parties.
I don't see why I should get screwed over because some phone operator feels like they are entitled to my money.
Meet the new monopoly
Same as the old monopoly.
Israel still has conscription
A lot of those Israeli kids aren't going to get a choice.
Re: IE6 / 7
People using decades old technology! Grrr!
They are the bane of my existence. Upgrade you Luddites!
Re: " ...converting kinetic energy ..."
Why not just use a glucose battery cell? Suck the excess glucose directly from the host just like they did with those snails?
Re: Why not go the whole hog and microchip the jobless?
Don't start giving them ideas!
Re: Why not on the job centre screens?
Look at you being all logical and shit! :)
It's a fine plan if the Job Centre was there to help people claiming JSA back into work, but it's not.
The Job Centre is there to get people off JSA by any means necessary.
We don't see why you wouldn't want to [let advisors track you]
Why wouldn't I want an unaccountable government official keeping track of what I'm doing?
And don't get me started on the whole thing about not applying for "suitable" jobs. Who are they to know what's suitable for me?
I seriously hope that I'm never out of work again. Ever.
The Daily Mail
The Daily Mail is a prime example of the web smut I want to keep my children away from!
If there's any danger of interfering with radio astronomy
Then astronomy has to take precedent.
Science > performing arts
I read that Wikipedia needed more money on Wikipedia
You can never trust anything you read on Wikipedia.
3 Years in prison?
They got off lightly!
If I had stolen that much money I wouldn't see daylight until I'd turned old and grey!
Re: Why anyone would want to share their every mundane thought is beyond me
I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
Re: Now all we need is...
It doesn't need to come back again.
We will however have to settle with watching 12 year old telemetry.
Re: quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Are you sassing me in eskimo talk?
Re: Actually.... the impact speed was...
That's more of a Lt Commander Data figure.
Sally gave herself to igniting kids
I can understand that, the little buggers can be annoying.
Tis the season to be offensive
Troll lol lol lol lol, Troll lol lol lol
Why aren't these data breaches considered criminal matters?
When council workers are faced with a spell inside for losing confidential data, you can bet your sweet arse that they will start taking care of our data.
Now all we need is...
Some egghead to come up with a way to get a space probe there before I die.
Re: Looks like Pete Cooke
Did you train at the Academy?
Why are they trying to make this the Ushers problem
It's not like the ushers have a multi-billion dollar interest in this. Why should they have to police movie goers and potentially put themselves in harms way to protect rich actors, producers and directors?
Re: A Doctorate, You Say?
I'd rather have the doctorate. At least then I can go around calling myself Doctor.
