E-cigarettes help save lives, says Royal College of Physicians

Pete4000uk

Why the need

to shove something in your mouth and suck on it? I really have no idea. But I am repulsed at the sight of people smoking, but I am currently watching my father kill himself by smoking. :(

Ofcom puts aside a little bit of spectrum for Internet of Things things

Pete4000uk

Takes me back...

'70.5-71.5MHz and 80.5-81.5MHz bands.'

Old fire brigade base and mobile frequencies.

With a very small antenna and fly fart power there is still plenty of interference during a 'lift'.

Wide area comms, analogue or digital, would be more suited to those frequencies.

Re: Freedom of movement.

Its not who you are or where you're from its what you offer us.

You can't roll up at most borders with no skills and expect to get in.

Coding is more important than Shakespeare, says VC living in self-contained universe

Pete4000uk

Tell me

why learning Shakespeare is so important?

I managed to avoid that stuff through illness and part time schooling yet I seem to be able to write pritty well (better than those who did GCSE'S I met at college)

Launch cost

The shuttle cost about $450 million to launch and I read somewhere the SLS would cost almost double.

Do they really know what this will be used for?

Come on kids, let's go play in the abandoned nuclear power station

When I wasca lad...

I went to Oldbury on the Severn with my local school. We went up the one tower and looked down on the hot rod water thingies. Of course, the radiation screening machine wouldn't let me out!

I can also look out my bedroom window and see Barkley NPP, also on the Severn and that's in the latter stages of decommissioning.

A reminder of when the future was great.

Well, that's up to you.

I would much rather get a new <bodypart> than suffer with some disability*

I'm sure a lot of disabled people would like to have a fully functioning body.

'Sunspots drive climate change' theory is result of ancient error

Pete4000uk

Article ice

Still plenty of it despite the scare stories of a decade ago.

Yes the climate is changing, but we are still scrabbeling around to find out what drives all this.

It's to complicated to say we know it all.
