It was a gift from Tim Berners Lee
Although, I could see how you could confuse him with a god.
Today, low earth orbit
Tomorrow, The Moon!
All of those games
Are special cases of a more generalised theory of Connect-4.
So these guys are getting done for laundering $2 million...
Yet HSBC launder $881 million and get let off with no criminal charges.
They obviously didn't launder enough!
Like taking candy from a public domain baby.
It's a bit cheeky, copying someone else's game mechanism and then trying to claim it as your own IP!
Virgin Media has been walloped by Britain's advertising watchdog!
Awesome! Finally the ASA has taken a firm hand with blatant lies in advertising!
"Virgin Media was told that the ad must not appear again in its current form."
Oh :( That was a bit of a let down.
Re: Pussy whipped?
You've pawssibly stumbled onto a great application there. Patent it before someone whiskers it away!
Meanwhile: Real terrorists proceed unmolested.
The american stazi have got an awful lot of free time on their hands if they can waste resources like this.
Get over here and give me some sugar!
My batteries are running low.
The filter is working exactly as predicted.
Why is anyone surprised? The vast majority of savvy El Reg readers said it would do this, and lo it has come to pass!
I for one welcome our new death ray wielding overlords.
Re: Write me a thousand lines of bug free code.
10 PRINT "Hello, world!"
20 PRINT "Hello, world!"
996 similar lines snipped.
9990 PRINT "Hello, world!"
10000 PRINT "Hello, world!"
There you go! Totally bug free!
(It doesn't do anything, but then that wasn't in the requirements)
It seems like a rather long winded way to say:
Security through Obscurity.
Re: @AC 09:54
Excellent idea! We should be able to upvote/downvote articles.
Nice to see ThrustVPS setting a good example.
I'd like to see more companies displaying that kind of honesty.
You want me to do what?
Ok Glass, look up the wikihow article for that...
Oh that is all kinds of wrong!
Smack bang right in the middle of the uncanny valley.
Sorry, computers are all down
We've had a massive outbreak of greenfly.
Management drag their heels on keeping tools up to date.
And then blame everyone but themselves years later when those tools fail.
Re: Grandma come to teach mind, and suck eggs?
And she's all out of eggs.
Use strong, memorable passwords
As soon as developers start building systems that will accept something like "Correct Horse Battery Staple" as a strong password, I will!
It's ok El Reg. I'll say it if you wont.
Sounds like a Patent Denial of Service Attack
With Google flooding the patent office with requests, it should prevent other patent trolls from being able to get a successful request through.
Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
It's had a reboot and the new version evoked a lot of nostalgia in me when I played it.
It's even got the age verification questions at the start!
After the General Election
I'm hoping to see record lows of Labour, Liberal and Tory MP's in office.
What goes on in the Facebook/Twitter hive mind?
I'm going to guess that a good 60% of it is about the weather at the moment.
Re: Harvesting spare static electricity
I'd have thought a better solution would be those power cells that metabolise glucose.
It's not just the lies
It's the constant stream of spam they feed through my letterbox offering me new customer deals.
What's even worse is that I'm already a subscriber!
If they are anything like ATOS
None of the information they hold on me will be relevant or accurate.
If it's my fondleslab...
Then aren't those my germs? Ones that I'm already immune to or part of my normal skin flora and fauna?
Didn't they do that all the time during the McCarthy era?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the FBI were watching all sorts of elected officials at the time.
Re: Anyone got a map?
I don't think you get the scale of these things. You're probably going to want to build your house on a different planet.
Why do I get the feeling that exoplanet hunters will be carping on about this for some time?
Re: The real story here
Money changed hands somewhere. I'm sure that they'll be able to dig out a receipt when the police come along to give them the 6 o'clock knock.
The real story here
Is that no one has been arrested for this yet.
It's a frigging prision.
Shouldn't be too difficult to erect some kind of cage around it.
Re: Since when does digital data need a permanent medium in the ranges of millions of years?
Since about a million years from now when the first settlers on 55 Cancri e wake up from their long sleep and need to start building their civilisation with the tools that they bought with them.
Alicia Keys as creative director?
I can't imagine anything more demotivating for the poor sods at Blackberry that actually do the work.
Can you buy fish sticks with it?
How many fish sticks will a CoinYe buy you?
Couldn't he have waited until she went down the shops?
Seems a bit extreme just to get a bit of alone time!
There has got to be a way to get a probe out there (eventually)
I know it would take a while, but I'd love to take a gander at these worlds up close!
It's just a fancy word for bribe.
How do they know that they're arms and not legs?
I pay my Virgin Media bill every month. And in that bill I get the basic TV package bundled in.
Even though I just want internet access.
So I'm paying for it anyway. Even though I don't watch it.
Re: how to watch the Daily Show int he UK
Bugger. I failed step 1. No TV.
Too be fair
A lot of those risks are the same with regular currency.
There's nothing that the EBA can do if someone nicks my leather wallet either.
Is Google expanding their searches to the real world?
Ok, Glass. Where did I leave my keys?
(Robot scurries off to retrieve them)
Reminds me of the whole .co.uk vs .com thing 15 years ago.
People would pay more for the .com name because they saw it as more prestigious.
I actually had a client ask me once which was better... And they refused to believe me when I told them there was functionally no difference.
We send probes to other bodies all the time.
Why can't we send one to Europa to basically melt its way through the ice, then fire a submarine probe down there?
