Strange alien-like life zones found beneath Antarctic glacier

Stat!

Interesting side note, Scott's 2012 Prometheus pretty much put the boot into Del Toro's long time ambition to take and adapt 'At the Mountains...' to the big screen.

Now that would be worth a watch.

Beer because, happy May Day!

Exclusive interview: Malcolm Turnbull quizzes Malcolm Turnbull

Bigger Problems

You planning to modernise that "telegraph network" Mr. Turnbull?

Or, are you going to play politricks with it, kick the can and ... oh i see, back to my Morse coding then, very well.

If the Co. cannot even figure out its working title, I'd think its safe to say this one's in the toilet, blame the other guy all you want. So much lip service and rhetoric with nothing to show.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – blisteringly big banter, brawls and brio

Sorry Auth.

i heard the direct corollary, diametric if you will. Usenet or applicable streaming service to prevail, i cannot justify hoi poloi and rorting in the same place. I'm sure they will do just fine when i purchase the dvd for 8 dollars at xmas time.

Tech companies aren't 'misleading' us, Oz Tax Office tells Senate

mr. deadlift
Trollface

Methinks...

...someone is looking to make up a hole ... a big, big hole for budget time.

Let the head rolling commence.

I do wonder who is "misleading" whom, seems all's well where millions are concerned.

While some of these bigger corporations might be on the less than honest side of the spectrum, one certainly would not want to put them offside give Oz's current economic state of affairs.

It'll all pass anyway, once an accord's been arranged - next it'll be the bank's tax, super, etc etc...

Mortal Kombat: Brawler gaming's quintessential gorefest

mr. deadlift

those were the days

i remember my introduction to MK on a sega mega drive - from memory the defaults were on (down up left left A right down for the cheat menu) and there was no blood, i did however manage to get Liu Kang to do something strange.

While the opponent was wobbling around and I mashing aimlessly he did a strange move and finished the opponent off. Those big red words appears on the screen, i had no idea what had occured at the time.

Ah memories, golden.

I must admit i'll be an MK fan till i leave the earth, i was not a fan of the 3d ventures in an attempt to emulate Tekken, which i consider to be a superior beat em up to MK.

however the niche it fills, it's almost impossible to express. which is why - as the author points out - i too am a little excited about the up coming release also, MKX.

The content business wants Netflix out of Australia

mr. deadlift
Mushroom

Re: Just give me a decent legal way to download.

upvote for you and a "how hard is it to figure out" comment.

do you remember that simpson's episode when Springfield gets the radioactive man film (pic related) and the vendors/mayor charge the movie producers taxes for everything? even a leaving town tax...

that's exactly what this is, the tax payer funds it, the taxpayer gets an inferior production the taxpayer gets boned, all because the greedy trough-jockey-pig-politician wants to get his "legal" kickback.

Oi, Malcolm et, al! go ruin another portfolio and leave the one potential infrastructure that might put Oz on a level playing field to someone else. Not that it'd make a difference.

This is one of these times when government needs to gtfo out of business. Yes, Rupert i see your media share is going to take a hit by a superior platform - stop calling in those cronies in your back pocket and get with the times. /rant for now...

Cheer up OZ

you've still got the cricket WC... doesn’t really mean much when Dunners the arse end of the known world, has faster bigger better pipes than most of your interior CBD's.

burns me that Oz has so many backwards priorities.

got world cups? ... check

got 21st century tech in play? ... what's a fibre?

and these clowns want "what's a metadata" retention laws?

i can see now, hamstring the speeds so you can keep the data laws/costs foisted on to the public bearable. You'd think you would want some aces up your sleeve with an economy transitioning away from commodities into something to fill the void, what ever can we do?

ha ha Dunedin, God of Nations, indeed.

Maybe Lee Kwan was right. If i were a voting citzen of Aus i'd be friggin ropeable.

UK sitting on top of at least 50 years of shale gas – report

mr. deadlift
FAIL

you familiar with the oroborus. the snake in a circle that eats itself? that's what oil shale is. return on energy invested is next to fuck all. plus you have added bonus of a raped wasteland. unless youre going for that kind of look. no much better investing in new god damn energy tech or invading a nation of little brown people with easily extractable resources. oil shale is a sham and a dying gasp of big oil ideas.

bullshit claim is bullshit

yep, couldn't agree more on this one.

but it's not only the big guys who claim this too, it's bricks and motar stores as well.

wouldn't surprise me if a lot of these big companies had shares or owned logistic chains etc /cynical.

which is why i will alway take a gamble with ebay first on almost all software. and it is a gamble but there are things you do to migtigate it. i've gotten product at much fairer prices from folk who have purchased the wrong poduct or sellers that have a much more competitve price point than legitimate vendors and resellers.

and let's not forget how expensive downloads are too...

i, wonder why piracy exists at all ...

Hopefully this pays off, i didnt realsie zfs had limitation on pure solid state storage. would be good to see zfs pushed along, not that it isn't at the moment.

Been using zfs for some time now and looking to move to zfs on linux however getting doco as always is a little tough, looked at illumunos alternatives OI but hardware support is a concern.

shame we lost open solaris.

Re: Listen...

absolutely hit the nail on the head, there is no way that Lotr or the Hobbit would have been produced without a substantial break from the NZ tax-payer. and of course that goes for any other country and tax payers as a film destination. okay a country is repaid in a way via tourism. but to subsidise production, then be gouged to see the end product, seems pretty hypocritical to me. and let’s not forget union furore with Hobbit also. mr. weinstien would like to involve them in the desion making process also? The nz govt and warner bros did some very shifty deals and pretty much circumvented local ir laws to get the deal done, so get off the cross hollywood and start a meaningful dialogue instead of shooting first because it definitely goes both ways.
