Molecular biologist Andrew Conrad?

Some media outlets didn't even bother calling him to check the facts
Are there really media outlets out there that indulge in such nefarious practices?

The entire series of images that make up Star Wars.

Re: Probably not that big a probe needed
I was thinking something the size of a tennis ball with as many sensors as you can cram into it and still leave room for a compressed air propulsion system.
Now we know how the Google bug ticketing system works.
1) Find bug
2) Post bug in an article to Forbes

Re: Latex Masks
Google Handsome Guy Human Mask.
Re: re. the stupidity of the USPTO
You are Dogbert, and I hereby claim my five pounds.
But not unheard of. Wasn't there a morning TV presenter that got done by the police for that?
Re: Longevity, so far up to thousands of years.
Try hundreds. It you want it to last thousands of years, carve it in stone.
You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!
Safe cracking has come a long way since the 60's.
What does Andrew Paterson think Glass does?
Am I going to start having to worry about the Data Protection Act when I'm using my Android phone too?
What is Lottie Dexter qualified to advise people on?
Except how to avoid getting a proper job.
Re: Do you seriously log into your home computer
Yes. Because there's stuff on there that I don't want my children to see.
How's security at this museum?
The last thing we need is crooks breaking in and stealing lightsabers.
Re: WTF "5000 times cooler" is supposed to mean
They should have said it was 5 KiloFonzies cooler.

See title for answer.
It's a trap!
I've been outside and seen the sun today for the first time in years
Facebook's failure has opened up a brave new world for me.
It looks like an Aperture Science Testing Centre.
I'll have Brid-Aine Parnell know that our satellite is larger than most.
You don't see many planets with satellites that have a mass ratio like the Earth and Moon do!
So much porn!
And here I was thinking that complex physics was the problem
After all, how much GPU power do you spend on making sure that breasts bounce just right?
Why am I only finding out about this NOW!?!
Mine's the coat with a copy of nmap in the pocket.
Unexpected Golden Shower
How much money are they going to make out of this?
Re: How do you determine if a computer program was driving dangerously?
Check the Event Log.
We've got Ms Tiamat holding on lines 2, 3, 5, 8 and 11. And boy is she pissed.
As far as I understand it (which isn't that far), it's a tiny ball of wibbly-wobbly quarky-gluony ... stuff.

Probably... depending on which flavour of string theory you prefer.

Re: Computer Misuse Act needs more of an update than that
I completely agree with you. There's just one problem.

Re: WTF are 'paedophilic manuals'?
I've no idea. It seems a little silly to me to have a law to cover a specific case of a manual that details how to commit a very specific crime.
Why no legislation on burglary manuals? Or Murder manuals? Armed robbery manuals? (Maybe it's the programmer in me, but why not create an abstract law regarding the dissemination of criminal techniques in manuals and then have a concrete implementation for each crime?)
Is this law really going to accomplish anything? I'm no criminal mastermind, but I don't think that criminals go on to the internet, download a "paedophilic manual" and then start practising.
