Re: This article reads remarkably like...
I've never understood why I should be worried about the bacteria in my toilet bowl.
I don't eat from it, wash in it, or drink the water from it.
The boffins did not say whether the lost continent was that of Atlantis, Mu or Lemuria.
Because that would have been very silly.
Or is there?
Re: They have to pay developers
Paying developers to do work?
Let's hope this catches on!
Do these drones remind anyone of a T-1 Aerial?
Surely it can't just be me.
Re: This is worth a patent?
It's just a flexible display glued to a bistable spring. It's hardly innovative. It's almost the definition of "obvious".
No Stoya in that mix up?
They missed a trick there.
Why Don't You Just Switch Off Your PC and Go and Do Something Less Boring Instead?
Fly a kite.
Re: Good riddance?
You'd be in breach of the Equality Act of 2006.
Don't downvote me. I don't make the rules.
These aren't new games.
They are remakes of old ones that I already own.
Re: It's just a penis.
If anybody needs me, I'll be in my bunk appreciating controversial works of art!
It's just a penis.
Half the population has one.
The human body is a beautiful thing. Why not celebrate the masculine form?
Re: Where do you get all the software from?
Either open source, or I download developer editions of software from my MSDN account.
BTW, I do actually have a home lab, but that's for my personal use. Not my employers.
Because it's currently geared up to construct an army of robotic super soldiers.
I don't work for free.
And learning new skills to benefit the company that employs me *is* work.
So I'll be doing my training during work hours thankyouverymuch.
We need to work on ways of getting there
Preferably within my lifetime.
Who wants to sign my public key?
It's ok, it's just for verifying that messages are actually from me.
Re: Why are we paying for this research?
To discover more huge prime numbers to feed to the prime number eating monster that lives under Belgium.
That if enough people want something to happen, we can make it happen!
Re: Running Android
Finally! Something useful I can do with my iPad!

It's game over man!
70 per cent more boys had called in about seeing porn online
Were they complaining or boasting?
The USA is sabre rattling again
Europe should not give in to the threats of rogue states.
Re: "which is known to be available for sale"
That's the kind of little loophole that would have made Game of Thrones legal to download.
Re: If he really wanted to cause damage...
Which is why you don't allow a programmer anywhere within flame thrower distance of a live server.
Re: It's over between us
If you only upvote one post today. Make sure that it's the one above the one above this one.
Most businesses only spend money on IT professionals when it matters.
And when their security gets breached, they usually find out that it mattered 12 months ago and all they can do now is call in a clean up crew.
You've fixed bugs for a site viewed in a browser that's 12 years old!
If people will insist on using ancient hardware and software to access the internet then I've got no bloody sympathy for them.
Are you still laying out your websites with tables?
Here's an idea Microsoft.
How about actually implementing the HTML 5 spec? Other browsers seem to have no trouble with it.
I'm sick and tired of having to look up every sodding tag to find out if it's supported in IE or not.
Re: I can see the flaw in the design.
There's probably another hole around the other side where they pump more air in.
Callcenters already mock callers.
"We apologise for the long delay."
"Your call is very important to us."
"We're going to stop the on-hold music, so that you think we're going to answer, but all we're really going to do is subject you to another automated message."
Here's an idea...
Why don't we use this space to make posts after the article, to actually discuss the issues raised in said article?
Just a thought.
There's a reason some of those spaces are white.
And a reason I don't want devices sitting in the 1420.40575177 MHz band.
We'd like to consult you on the best way to look after these chickens...
Re: Never mind the nuke angle, there are more important questions:
Re: Helium supply
We make more by fusing deuterium.
Thus solving the problem once and for all.
Changes in the pulsar are like a chameleon
They come and go... They come and go
Everyone off the bus!
I want all the shiny people over here, and all the matte people over there, ok!
I represent mean angry pizza-eating coding people, alright!
As long as there are no dead pixels, we can get on with writing software!
A pilot scheme will be be tested on bumpkins
I for one am against the government testing this BT on poor defenceless bumpkins.
Re: If the silicon acted as a catalyst
Then the little nano spheres would give off both hydrogen *and* oxygen.
I'll leave figuring out why this is a bad thing as an exercise for the reader.
Re: silicon nanospheres sound a whole lot more transportable than lithium ion batteries.
And less likely to explode, burn, or leave nasty contaminants behind.
Re: Fuel Cells
What is it that you don't get about easily transported, safely stored hydrogen?
Would you rather fill your laptop up with a pressurised hydrogen gas tank?
Time to redirect Port 22 to a terminal that only plays Zork
You are standing in a field west of a white house.
There is a mail box here.
Re: This is cool
It is when you are flinging an SUV sized robot 225 million miles to be dropped on a dusty desert planet by a flying sky crane.
Don't like Skypes lack of security?
Don't use Skype. There are plenty of software voip phones out there. Some of them even come with RTP stream encryption!
