Maybe they can offer up some of this superscale search to it's users?
I know an FB friend posted something about a poet named Robert a while back, can I find the post in question?, can I buggery.

Person A: What do you think of my new toy?
Person B: Nice watch, you look like Dick Tracey
Person A: I look like Dick Tracey?
Person B: No, I said you look like a dick, Tracey.
It isn't the same on used in the original, the new photo contains a Sanyo MBC-55x, my very first PC!.
That really brought a smile to my face... awesome.
Re: Each eye to focus on a different plane?
Nope, bifocals have the bottom quarter of the normal distance lens cut for reading in both lenses.
You look through the top 3/4s of the lens for normal viewing and then look down a bit for your magnified reading part.
It isn't a case of the lens lens being set for distance and the right for viewing, that would really mess things up, you'd end up looking like Major Asshole from Mel Brooks' SPACEBALLS.
As for whomever decided to downvote my previous post, I was of course referring to the issue of a good idea causing problems, a la Opti-Grab...

That all a bounty achieves is bringing all the kooks, cranks and phoneys out for a quick buck, thus hampering the real investigation.
One of the weirdest keyboards I've ever used came with the Sanyo MBC-550, like the IBM of its time it had a solid metal backplate, a distinct amount of travel and a clack that could madden even the most even tempered.
That was where the similarity ended though, the bloody thing was non standard, so when the cable broke I travelled to my local computer junk shop (remember them?, now the are called WEEE disposal centres) and picked up a replacement DIN cable, hacked the keyboard side connector onto the new cable and it was good to go for many more years.
That was the only keyboard I've ever used that had a PC reset button on the side.
I use a Krups Dominator myself... Company policy.
There is a youtube video of a chap modifying his keyboard to provide analogue W A S and D keys for gaming, I won't link to it as there is slight vulgarity in it, but a search for "XBOX Controller Mods: Analog WASD Gaming Keyboard " will bring up the goods.
See, there is a use
for Big Data after all...
I wonder how much time it took between the auction going up and the Google BD system flagging it up as a keyword hit?

Re: Reporting from inside the prc
Removing the phallic fixation (what is the PRCs stance on homoerotic text being published from inside their territory?) All i got from that post is that you don't pay for a TV license, I don't have a pilots license yet you don't see me demanding fellatio from Stelios.
Back on topic, I do believe I've solved it, it isn't the Peoples Liberation Army, its is all those Power Line Adapters every one is using to repurpose their mains supplies as networking lines, the RFI those things put out would shame any decent jammer.
Well done Simon
Print this article out on cut price toilet paper and you'll have your very own sun article.
You did forget to make bold and capitalise the emotive words though, the HORROR!

I wonder how all the agencies both governmental and corporate along with the people actually up in space who watched his cunning stunt feel about such a turncoat speech?
I don't understand.
Why are they making their small things bigger and their big things smaller?
reeks of running out of other peoples ideas to me.

Isn't this the second time a virulent death has rained upon the realms?, I remember the first time there we two mains camps, the carebears and the griefers, the carebears tried their hardest to save their friends from certain death whilst the griefers ran around infecting anyone the could just for the sheer hell of it.
First one to post the Bobby Tables XKCD gets to clean the sharpie marks off the digital whiteboard.
I seem to recall in 2000 or so a solar panel stuck during unfurling and a makeshift non conductive poker was used to help unjam the concertinas, the kinetic energy from the unfurling was not dispersing but rather traveling up and down the panel like a wave.
A couple of ablative heatshield panels were repaired on the Discovery orbiter using caulk and a couple of scrapers in 2006.
During 2007 a medical stapler was used to fix a wayward heat shield blanket on the Atlantis orbiter that had torn during flight.
Set up all the broadcasters!!!
But where on earth is all the content going to magically appear from?

>Do you talk to your arse often?
>Does it answer?
Both the main news article and this post reminded me of the Talking Arse sketch in William S Burrough's Naked Lunch, Peter Weller deadpan delivery of Bill Lee's story to Kiki and Yves Cloquet in the car was sublime.
Does this chump think the megacorps are just going to absorb the costs of his electronic scammery and move on as if nothing happened?, of course not, they'll recoup their losses by bumping up the prices of their goods/services yet again.

Re: Big event, mundane response from SpaceX mission control
Did you see their live press conference when the Dragon berthed with the ISS?, for a moment I thought I was watching the episode of The Simpsons where Homer goes to work for Hank Scorpio, utterly amazing, rounds of cheers and woooohs whenever Elon spoke, a complete contrast to the prim and proper conference from NASA.
The Dragon mission briefing is about to begin, so off I go. :)
I made that mistake too for a moment.

A huge congratulations to all involved! :)
It's all just a little bit of history repeating
I seem to recall a previous XP update from a long time ago also suffered the same fate, I just hidden the update until the fixed update was released and then all was right with the world again.

Re: I disagree... on one (slightly OT) point
Absolutely, how the RED range can be considered "indie" is beyond me, maybe if the bar bill was bigger than the rest of the production costs, but that's neither here nor there.
The Canon 5D Mark II however, that camera almost certainly shook up the indie film scene.
