Re: Newquay gets my vote; at least you can enjoy the beach
Prestwick also has a beach as, I'm sure do most of the other candidates.

The software will be bundled into Unity 5 and Unreal 3 and 4 3D gaming engines.
Does this mean the average Joe gets to use it for free (until they make three grand) ?
It's full of st.. st..
... strange, shiny, white stuff.
a tiny solar powered ion rocket attached to eventually dump this on the moon. It would be useful at a later date
I like the idea but unless you can also come up with some way to land it softly on said moon, I'm not sure how useful it would be.
Unlike "2001", I have seen "2010" only once; it is definitely not in the same league as the first film
I see you continue with your mastery of understatement.
I know that term is bandied about willy-nilly but is this chap a worthy bearer of the title?
Either way, I hope he has a fluffy, white cat.
All of my life
I've been lickin'
'Cause it tastes like chicken
+1 for the Guru.

I only ever use Camel Software as plugins with Apple's Logic so it will probably make little material difference to me yet still strangely sad to see them go.
No, you didn't just make it up but that doesn't preclude you from being "a cynical old bastard that has a huge distrust of politicians."
I certainly am.
T-in-the-Park doesn't even qualify as a festival in my book. More like an oversized gig full of neds.
I still go every couple of years when there's a band playing that I can't see otherwise but it has never really felt like a festival, not even when it first started in Strathclyde Park (yes, I am that old).
At least Glastonbury is still relatively friendly in comparison and it's undoubtedly a festival, cow-mud and all.
That said, I usually prefer smaller events, preferably under 10,000 people.
".. called USSR"
I think I have a bit of a discrepancy with your definition of "truly real socialism."
As far as I can tell, such a place has never existed and, if one ever did, it certainly wasn't USSR.
Say it again, y'all!
It seems to me there's a secret, well-rehearsed magic script that security gnomes read to politicians (or more likely instruct them to follow) when they first get into government that scares the shit out of them and which simply puts the kibosh on any genuine well-intentioned plans.
I've often wondered about that myself so you could well be onto something.
Hehehe... usually the first sign that I'm enjoying a game is when I start swearing at the on-screen, fictional enemies.
Stwike him! Stwike him wuffly!
I know what you mean with regards to even Beeb-4 content becoming increasingly dubious but am usually reassured when Jim al Khalili makes an appearance and I enjoyed that show too.
My late Grandfather had a variant of that type of question which baffled me as a five year old and still makes me smile:
If it takes a man a week to walk a fortnight, how many eggs in a barrel of grapes.
I'm just surprised that anyone actually uses a laptop with the OS install the manufacturer put on it.
The idea the Joe Average will wander out of CurryPhone DixHouse with his shiny, new toy then go straight home, plug it in and start using it without first reinstalling the operating system surprises you?
Your surprise surprises me.
Oh, well. Carry on then.
If it means we no longer have to entertain tadgers such as yourself, I'll gladly help you build it.
Except they didn't.
.. why does all this technology which can help mankind have to be developed as a spin-off from developing more efficient and more expensive ways of killing and maiming people?
Wouldn't it be nice if they renamed DARPA the Making-The-World-A-Better-Place Advanced Research Projects Agency, and left the budget untouched?
Given that it's D for Defence rather than O for Offence, were Mr. Orwell still with us he may well conclude that they already have.
Unlike Ewar Woowar, who added several Ds.
I was wondering that myself, although the screenshot with the FP view certainly appears to be.
And there is whole lot of fun to be had if this is an ongoing trend; plenty more ship names to choose from, some eerily appropriate. (e.g. Oceanic Dissonance or Just Testing)
Personally, I wish he'd called one of these barges Pure Big Mad Boat Man.
Regardless, I hope SpaceX continue to experiment and innovate. Genuinely interesting times.
Samsung intrusiveness is pushing you towards..... Sony?
Sweet sufferin' badgerbaws.
Think arranged marriages are old fashioned?
Looks like they could make a "Western World" comeback, albeit with algorithms rather than parents doing the arranging.
Although I'm an auld codger who has never used a "dating facility" of any kind so I suppose there's an element of Mandy Rice Davis to my comments.
You like Yeez?
You like Peaze?
Then you'll *love* these!
... and then, hopefully, safely and gently back downwards.
Best of luck, folks.
Very true, although having had a couple of my own bikes swiped over the years, I tend to ride a sub-£200 effort these days.
Still gets me where I'm going in around the same time as the super-lightweight-fancy-pants-expensive-bastard-of-a-thing I had swiped a few years back.
That said, cycling is mainly a means to a destination for me.
Never was a trick-cyclist either.
... a mission like the Active Sensing of CO2 Emissions over Nights, Days and Seasons (ASCENDS).
These painfully laboured and absurdly tenuous acronyms seem to be getting sillier and sillier.
This one in particular is:
Ah, Mr O'Driscoll.
"There is no dark side in the moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark. The only thing that makes it look light is the sun."
They don't make them like that anymore.
Am I right or am I wrangutan?
I know, I know.... pass my coat please.
I had a feline you'd post something like that.
I didn't but then I googled it...........
I only signed in to post that this was the scariest part of the whole story.
How many "confessed criminals" in Japanese gaols are actually nothing of the sort?
Perhaps that's where Lewis has gone.
Where's the Captain Lawrence Oates icon when you need it?
And how many elsewhere?
Some at NASA are pushing for a more ambitious plans, however. This would involve putting a lander on the surface and drilling down into the ice, either mechanically, or by using heat to melt itself down through the surface and then releasing a submarine to explore the water below.
Well, if you're going there anyway, you might as well push for the landing and drilling part.
Please make this happen.
+1 for winks-wank-wunk bringing me my first smile of the day.
17-year-old security researcher?
Fair play to him. At that age I was far too busy with other, aherm, "recreational" activities.
Paris because she knows all about privacy concerns.
... with an Atomic Banjo.
Must be in the top ten of best concert movies ever made.
It would indeed be curious for someone who likes the music of Talking Heads not to like the film.
If this is the case please feel free to elaborate.
OTOH, if you don't like the music of TH, then I suggest you made a right, old arse-bollox of picking a film that night.
(I'd also suggest you need your ears looked at but that's by the by.)
> how much paper you need for something like a 20 storey building.
Or maybe just a tree in a field?
