a "surprising organic brew" containing "volatile gases, water vapour, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, as well as organic materials"
I think Enceladus is full of shit.
The Martians are surely better off not importing islam
Don't forget to bring a towel!
It's essential kit for hitchhikers
Re: Don't be fooled
The downvoters are obviously unfamiliar with the concept of irony
The Finnish language
is incredibly difficult to comprend grammarwise if your native tounge is of Latin/German origin. Like Swedish and German, it is an extremely descriptive language; it creates new words as they are needed. For instance:
In Swedish: Kernel -> Kärna. Linux kernel is therefore 'Linuxkärna'. A brand new word, unlike English where the two words are kept separate.
On top of that, and this is the really difficult bit, new words appear depending on what you are doing to the Linux kernel and who's doing it; one word for someone compiling the kernel, another word for debugging the kernel, robbing the kernel, eating the kernel ..
Swedish is easier.
I do mind, the Dude minds.
This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man.
I have a very bad feeling about this.
Dear Santa ..
I want my own Terminator. Or no robot at all.

Even if it's not entirely true, I raise my glass to your anecdote, Sir !

Praise Jesus! And my sniper rifle.
How's it even possible
for El Reg to mention Cherenkov radiation without making a Dr. Manhattan reference?
Kinda resembles the intro in Half-Life
before Black Mesa goes bananas
well, its dictator and his daughter, are among TeliaSonera's customers. Also, TeliaSonera culture still suffers from being a spinoff from a once government controlled monopoly. They are on my evil list.
Re: One step closer...
and ion cannons. They can disable a Star Destroyer from quite a distance, allowing the transports to get through.
Maybe the Iranians

Give the $75m
to a joint rcexplorer.se-SPG venture instead! David would MacGyver a rocket, probe, submersible ice drilling probe and be able to send awesome HD photage back to El Reg well within budget.
Laser! Use the laser!
An explorer from a distant world
might, many eons from now, discover signs of a previous civilization on this planet, gone extinct by a huge meteor blast, and conclude that the dumbasses spent their resources on building expensive weaponry aimed at each rather than focusing on getting off their rock and into space. - "What a stupid excuse for intelligent life! Serves them right."
Re: Daily defence spending...
Off topic but nonetheless - we are there on a fool's errand. Just watch what happens when we leave next year!
Not sure what to think of this
There is no way that these retro-crafted movies by Disney can be anything but crap. Will I spend my money to see them in a theater? Yes!
- I'm sorry, Dave
I can't let you do that.
and start coding
And what about that "stone" that crashed into Russia?
Don't you see the obvious?!?!
Time to mount an offensive against the Arachnids!
Do you want to know more?
I knew it!
There's oil there. Let's export democracy to the poor martians! Send in the marines!
Re: Good riddance?
> Surely the Holy book of K&R should still be revered? - even if you do use C++
Indeed. That is the old testament though. When I first joined the order of the Jedi, Bjarne Stroustrup made me place my hand in The C++ Language, by himself, and swear that I would delete everything created with new, as free releases the mallocs of old.
In most countries in the civilized world discriminating against religion would incur law suits and recompense. Fuck that! I work for a medium sized software company. What we do requires a certain level of intelligence. A person showing up at a job interview and stating that he believes that a book written quite some time ago is the words of God, simply does not qualify as intelligent. Therefor he is unhireable. He should seek happiness and fulfillment elswhere.
Am I right or am I right?
Still pretty sure
that we're the at center of God's creation. And we are his only creation in His image. Praise Jesus and my sniper rifle!
