If only ...
I use an old scanner with XP drivers with Windows 7. MS supplies a handy virtual XP machine free of charge...
Yes, what if your existence depended on MS software. One bad "upgrade" and 500 years of memories vanish.
What if you only existed in a Google server. They could sell you stuff by analysing all your brain functions on a millisecond basis...
Ah, Soviet "Champagne".
Once tasted never forgotten...
Bono is not a nob.
He's a knob.
Perhaps those parts are decoupling caps and the device tested OK — but may throw up glitches in certain circumstances?
ARM survives by selling IP.
No copyright, no company.
Leaves the market dominated by those with production facilities.
Much as I love Intel ...
This is all irrelevant. Your examples involve HUMANS not monkeys.
In this case a solution would be arrived at by negotiation between all parties or resorting to lawyers ...
Copyright laws apply to HUMANS. What a monkey did or did not do is irrelevant. The only person with any creative input is David Slater.
Also Slater as a professional photographer would have worked in RAW format. He would then have processed his "negative" in (say) Adobe Lightroom to produce the final result.
He owns the copyright of this final work irrespective of the mad ramblings of the US Copyright Office Office and Jimmy Wales.
The copyright laws regulate the behaviour of humans.
Any image made on my camera belongs to me if no other human was involved in its making.

The turtleneck moves ...
A lot of wildlife photographers set up cameras which are triggered by animals. Are all these now copyright-free because they were "taken" by the subject?
Fred Dinenage — How?!
Any links for this "new Pi"?
It appears to be in North Texas ...
Welsh is in a persistent vegetative state. As soon as life support is removed it will die out completely.
I say that because it's true. However I also support all these minority UK languages and am perfectly happy for my tax money to be spent to keep them going.
I also detest the homogenising effect of the internet and other modern media on regional accents and other regional differences. I also recognise that my detesting it will make no difference whatsoever and in the long term.
Why not an English motto.
Or if you must have a dead language why not one closer to home such as Welsh or Cornish?
Armadillo Willys — a fast food concept too far...
You've forgotten to take your medication again haven't you...
Measure for measure.
For, like an ass whose back with ingots bows,
Thou bear's thy heavy riches but a journey,
And death unloads thee. Friend hast thou none;
Offense = USA.
Offence = Rest of the world.
Both mean the same.
Why do they look so camp in the photo?
And how can you tell if they are wearing suspenders?
So Reg, a fundamental schoolboy error!
Now you know how Stephen Fry feels.
Except that he is not a reporter on a tech publication.
Who are Colossus Rebuild Limited?
I can't seem to find exactly who they are, what they do and who are the owners ...
It's it's not its.
Correct—but I think you meant knob...
I remember that gay used to mean homosexual.
This story appeared in Ars Technica two days ago I expect rather quicker cutting and pasting er... I mean reporting from The Register.
The square root of minus one has been trademarked by Apple.
All squids are at the very least damp.
Perhaps you meant damp squib.
Which comes from a time when alcohol was "proved" (i.e. tested) to ensure it wasn't watered down.
Perhaps the journos have been at the electric soup?
Or perhaps standards of literacy ain't wot they used to be ...
Of course it won't because this is nonsense.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Proof in this sense means test.
Unfortunately Cadbury was sold out to the Krap Corporation by its disgusting senior management.
No. Just No...
I bought a Scrumpi kit. £60 for a kit was a very large sum at the time.
Power supply not included. You had to program in binery since both data and address buses were shown by LEDs and data set by switches. I wore out the right hand “Step” switch.
It eventually ended up in college in a Differential Pulse Polarography rig.
It had a very expensive 12 bit A/D converter and an 8 bit D/A (output to a chart recorder).
I interfaced a bought-in board so that I could record/read data from a cassette recorder. I sent off to have a 32x8 PROM programmed which was used to boot from. I expanded the memory with SRAM on a bit of veroboard. I think to 1.5k.
The whole lot was self-funded from my grant (remember those!) as none of my lecturers knew WTF I was on about.
Still got the whole thing somewhere. Must find it and see if it still works…
Well why not a woman?
Why not Bonnie Langford as Dr Who?
LIKE A FAT SWEATY CHIMP
It's all our fault.
That visit to London and then Coldplay depressed him so much that he just gave up.
Will we ever live it down...
It can be quite amusing to see what people have registered.
E.g. someone has registered PooReview.com.
Yes, but only because there isn't a worse word available.
A deficiency in the English language ...
"Bum a fag"
Or Burn a flag...
Hack: A writer of articles; a harmless drudge.
But surely Germany is spying on American — and everyone else for that matter.
Or are they the only country in the world that is'nt?
2.8 million square feet with rounded corners...
meters -> metres
Nothing has been censored. Nothing has changed.
The last time I visited my ISP's site (TalkTalk) I was asked if I wanted to activate a "child-friendly" filter. I ticked "no".
What is the problem exactly?
None of the original was in 65mm. Although 2001 was...
"Eventually, these conglomerates will run out of cheap places to 'make stuff'."
Eventually the greedy, rich first-world consumers will run out of cheap places to make the shiny shit they are addicted to.
There fixed it for you ...
