I wonder how she got the job?
That's because when you're 5, everything is awesome! You'd be in a hurry too if the entire world was full of really cool stuff you'd never seen before.
HTML 5 is the future.
Given GCHQ's definition of legal.
How crap is that?
It's Dean Vernon!
So basically, Pig Latin for the French?
I've heard that you can get "warming" lubricants that have a dash of capsaicin in them...
So I've heard anyway...
If they can erect a massive firewall to protect us from porn...
...Then why can't they construct one to keep out spammers and malware writers?
Patent 5,959,633 sounds like half the stuff I build!
Any word on if he's coming back again?
Why is Jaffa Cake offensive?!?
Did the Goa'uld put in a complaint?
Yet more words that are kept secret from us and would cause a search on Bing to get flagged up.
Those are our words! (probably, I don't know what they are) Just because some elements of the criminal underworld have co-opted them doesn't make everyone that uses them a criminal.
How much heat are these chips putting out? I'm thinking that this manufacturing process packs transistors denser, which would translate to the same amount of heat being generated in a smaller space.
Human life is already cheap.
Don't believe me? You can get a longer sentence for theft or destruction of property than for murder.
Here's hoping that includes automated dialers.
Wireless energy transmission, yeah, he thought of that.
But what about all those nut and bolt sized chunks of metal whizzing around?
I'd have thought it would be easier to dodge a large object coming your way than it would be to avoid a shotgun pellet like smattering of metal.
No! She went of her own accord!
Everyone cocks something up at some point or another. Even me.
Test, then test, and test some more.
Test it isolation.
Test it from end to end.
Test it with loads of data.
Test it with no data.
Test it with wrong data.
Sorry for getting testy, but why bother writing code if you're not going to make sure it works?
It was a massive machine that you had to book time on. It was a specialised piece of equipment that cost a fortune and wasn't practical for everyone to own. As time went on and techniques were refined and new technology became available you could eventually fit ENIAC's function into something the size of a wrist watch.
This almost looks like history repeating itself. Give it a few more years and we'll be able to get a quantum processor on a PCI card.
I'm surprised he didn't get done for wasting police time.
I'm going to start using their search engine this very second!
Search results? Why would I be interested in how well the thing actually works?
Then leave it alone!
Never poke or make fun of dead things. People that do that are usually the first to die in horror movies.
How many people have been wrongly convicted of tampering?
After all, who's going to take the word of a criminal over that of "expert evidence"?
Great article though :)
"You would make a ship sail against the winds and currents by lighting a bonfire under her deck...I have no time for such nonsense." -- Napoleon
Damn! If she backpedals any faster she's going to start travelling through time!
The Digital Playground 2005 film Pirates is still surprisingly watchable.
Trouble is, when seeking the thrill of being caught; there's always the possibility of being caught.
That in itself speaks volumes.
They'll quite happily engage in secret talks with service providers, yet wont talk to the press about their schemes to keep us all on a piracy database.
Are they sure it's not Slenderman?
Get the Mech Jeb addon. It makes fine tuning a transfer orbit so easy.
Beating the terrorists at their own game by taking away american freedoms first!
Please tell me that the NSA doesn't let sysadmins work alone? At one installation I worked at, being caught at a terminal on your own was grounds for immediate dismissal.
Or worse, in front of a firing squad!
If I had a pound for every bugger that's phoned me asking me about my PPI claim.
I brewed enough alcohol last year to kill a full grown man.
That's legal, yet growing plants is not. Go figure.
How do we know some Martian hasn't hotwired it?
This is both slightly disturbing and freaking awesome at the same time.
I wonder what happens to "Me" when I hook my brain up to someone else's.
You can't really run an X-COM operation without it!
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!
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.)
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.
