Re: Using a phone while driving?
Yeah, but what if all the dumb people in cars talking on their mobile phone run over all the smart people?
Before you know it, we've all got the average IQ of the Houses of Parliament.
That wasn't trolling.
That was Great Justice!
No! Not the Melty Man!
Re: What can you do with a single qubit?
You'd think a single bit of information would be totally useless too. But then where would we be without light switches?
The boys would probably be getting done for creating child porn as well then.
Re: c as a constant
Because there's an awful lot of other things we can test that depend on c being a constant. For example: the fine structure constant Alpha, and the decay rate of Cobalt 56 (see the observations of SN1987A).
Imagine space-time is like a huge rubber sheet.
Space-time is easily wiped clean and wont let anything stain your mattress?
Trojans in space
I immediately thought of those asteroids that float around Lagrangian points.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Re: MS ARE offering extended support
Well to be fair, the banks can afford it.
But if they can afford that, then they can afford to get their IT affairs in order.
It's getting to the point where you're better off assuming everything BT say is a lie
BT simply cannot be trusted to give a straight answer
Re: Let's generalise this a bit
Who says advertising doesn't work!? :D
The MPAA and RIAA are pitching the idea of grooming kids early?
Did no one at those groups stop to think about the unfortunate implications of this?
And beer according to Alex Brett @16:28
Are you saying that I should move my money out of HSBC?
They know how to keep their troublemakers in line!
Re: Nature loves to do idle integration
The proof is left as an exercise for the universe.
I think I'm going to need a bigger can of Raid!
How is this a fair test?
In the real world, you wouldn't necessarily know an attack is coming, or where it would be directed.
I doubt this "attack" will employ any techniques that the defending staff haven't specifically been told to prepare for.
That's not a slingshot!
That's a Hohmann transfer!
Well we know who built Stuxnet
I suggest that the governments affected sue the perpetrators from orbit. This kind of collateral damage could have been prevented had the original developers actually targeted their attack.
Lie detector? Galvanic skin response?
Someone at Google/Motorola doesn't know how the human body works apparently.
Re: "I need your clothes, your boots..."
And a urine sample.
EMP's? Just like in Red Dawn?
What about that game with the sonic screwdriver?
You know, that one you could get on Linux desktops. Where all the darleks chased you around the screen.
Someone must know what I'm on about.
Image hash database
Is this publicly available so that sysadmins can run preventative measures?
Highly developed organisms such as Register readers?
How exactly is this helping to fight "terrorism"?
Are the NSA really that interested in my high score on Plants Vs Zombies?
A person can set a schedule controlling the heating or cooling of his house.
I'm pretty sure I already have a device in my house that's doing that right at the moment.
And my oven already has a timer on it.
That's Theresa May for you.
She can't get her own house in order (remember that fiasco with her border staff just letting everyone through because they were "under staffed"), so she's very neatly trying to sweep the problem under someone elses rug.
Most landlords have a hard enough time maintaining their properties. They have neither the time, nor the qualifications to verify the identity and eligibility of someone to stay in the UK. Hell, if the Home Office itself can't figure out who's legally entitled to live in the UK, how is a landlord?
Re: Yup. That's me.
I am at work.
My code's compiling.
Nice to see America catching up to the rest of the civilised world.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" seems like a nice place to start. I read that in a declaration of independence somewhere.
Possessions are fleeting
And so it would seem, is data.
Better late than never Gov.UK
In future, I recommend closing the stable door before the horse has bolted.
Re: Maths fail.
Well done. Have .1 of a cake.
Re: Is that...
That's because anyone running XP 64-bit has to be a freaking wizard to get any drivers to work with it!
Re: Oh my
I full support the call for a George Takei Icon.
(even though George Takei is an icon)
That is freaking AWESOME!
And good to know that in a pinch, my HTC can be used as a bullet proof vest panel.
Yeah, you can guarantee that we're already being gouged by the current price fixing scandal that will only come to light in 2020.
£2 per journey?
Why so much? Is each pod equipped with a mini bar and a monkey butler?
I'd have thought that the President would have had better security
If they skimp on security to the point where a bunch of script kiddies can crack his accounts, I wonder what the rest of their security is like?
You could probably break into the White House if you know which rock they hide the front door key under.
Necessary computer skills and intent
Hang on. Hacker == Intent?
Is having the necessary computer skills really the same as going equipped to cause damage?
I wouldn't mind getting spam at all if I was paid for it.
I think that £1 per message would do it.
Quite possibly the hardest mouse in the world.
I bet he drinks Carling Black Label
Easy Access to Parallel Computing
Nvidia's CUDA is a great introduction to parallel computing. Recently, I've been looking at CUDA to do financial calculations. A problem that lends itself very well to parallel computing, as there are a lot of calculations that don't depend on the results of others.
Rather than go through each transaction sequentially, work can be divided up and farmed out to the graphics card and the length of the task is shorter by orders of magnitude.
No User Serviceable Parts Inside
Does the PM think that Zuckerberg himself is posting each individual video?
It would be "irresponsible of Facebook to post beheading videos" if Facebook were doing that. But it's not. It's a piece of software.
It is the [b]people using the software[/b] that are the problem!
