Re: Is it just me......
I was surprised that Aperture Science didn't have their logo up there...
So how many of these would I need
To power a fricken laser?
It makes sense to tax the rich
After all, they are the ones with the money.
Re: utensil porn
At least the cooker isn't looking at real filth like sporks.
Re: Bubble universes
I don't know about you. But I like to go outside once in a while. You know, go to the pub, listen to a few live bands, talk to my friends and find out what they are listening to.
It's called socialising, and you can find out more at your local watering hole.
Re: how much our personal tax could be cut
If we taxed them properly, then you could probably cut the tax rate of the poorest amongst us to 0%
Re: Breaking Laws And Contracts
You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs.
Once medical records are in the cloud
There's no way to get them out again. And there's no way to prevent scope creep.
Because you can bet that some bureaucrat somewhere will think to themselves, "We've got a lot of data here on every man, woman and child in the UK. I wonder who we can sell it to."
BT Lying Again?
Write an article when BT tell the truth about something.
That will be news!
Humbug used to be a grossly offensive word.
It leaves the definition of "grossly offensive" up to police officers (and judges)
So if the investigating officer is in a bad mood or an idiot, you're screwed.
(Please don't take offence at "you're screwed", it was meant in the nicest possible way.)
Re: Hyper violent "Worms"
Send in an exploding sheep.
Guns don’t kill people.
I'm sure they make the job a lot easier though.
Re: How about aiming for/looking for some kind of life forms?
That's what they *are* doing!
Ok, so who do all my base belong to now?
When the government can't track down an individual twitter user
You can bet that we'll be moving to IPv6 pretty sharpish.
Re: I don't recognise actresses in the cinema, but...
On closer inspection. No. Definitely not.
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.
All that technology to get a man into space
And he's taking photos by pointing a camera out of a window!
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.
You've missed a bit...
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.
Re: 5 mins my ass
I got half way through and then thought, "Screw this! This is taking me forever and I'm getting nothing useful out of it.". Then I closed the browser window.
Users are becoming empowered?
We must stop them before it's too late!
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.
