Or offer your copy of Farenheit 451 and a box of Swan Vestas?
Re: Julian Assange lookalike flash mob at the Equadorian Embassy, anyone?
Given time to get the riot vans rolling, a simple Operation Kettle (TM the met) should do quite nicely
Or June 4th if the bits were sourced from "genuine UK stock" chinese fleabay merchants
Re: You can buy food in M&S for under £20 ?
Dine in for two - ten pounds. Occasionally gets a mention on the telly box
Gregorian or Julian calendar?
Back to good old sails then. Explains why the obsolete propulsion method mentioned in the original article was steam. And my choice of icon.
I agree with your steering concerns. No keel or lee boards possible in near-vacuum.
Re: Since "ogooglebar" is in fact found by conducting a Google search for "ogooglebar" ...
I think it may be closer to the definition of recursion. As in
Recursion: See recursion
Nah. extra coating, like the scrimnet on a squaddy's helmet. Coz you can't be tooo careful can you?
Re: Delete *... @AC
if only you checked the code cliff@ebay wrote before it went live...
Starting to look at reading the solar panels' output and varying the immersion heater to use free juice when the sun shines rather than 3kW when the water wants it. Then there's play / pause on the dishwasher so the magic cupboard works while I do (at the moment most likely using an xBee linked solenoid to poke the buttons directly). Oh, and switching on the charger for the laptop batteries through the day for evening browsing...
"we're still deconvoluting the spectrograph information"
Deconvoluting. My new favourite word, ever.
Does that mean interpreting? Or did I misinterpret?
Or simplifying? Or did I over simplify?
re Chinese ones
Maybe just the original supplier who lost out when production got repatriated to Sony in Wales
That would nark former doctor who Sylvester McCoy. IIRC he used to appear as "the real McCoy" in a mock freakshow thingy before he got the tradis gig
more of a "spot the birdy" than "watch the birdy" photo then.
Tux? This is not the bird you're looking for
Good job nobody had tried to stack them then, would've made quite a din when they tumbled
Kitty in a tree?
Isn't that a job for the fire department?
OK, I'm going
Re: How far?
So I don't need to get the holiday brochures then (and Scott Broukell can give the estate agentsa miss too).
Beers all round to those who found it never the less
just call me picky
but how far away is it? doesn't appear to be mentioned in the article or links, and it kind of makes a difference between "oh, that's nice to know" and "book me a flight, I'm there"
Re: No it doesn't
Some extra points from my last TPS response that really rub salt in:
- The TPS response had a "noreply@TPS" address
- They don't give any case reference number
- The muppet included comments along the lines of "you haven't given us enough to go on, do contact us again to discuss this further"
Call me a peasant, but...
"distillers manage to add flavour (and often a colossal price premium) to their products by such means as leaving them in variously-prepared wooden barrels for a few years"
I prefer to serve my voddy after a long infusion of sloes. I'll be trying elderberries this year due to the (non cimate change related) poor potential harvest on my normal picking grounds
Beat me to the joke, so here's some boring stuff
Only one of the suppliers has a lead time based on "Jam tomorrow, never today" (raspberry of course). The other supplier is quoting three weeks and shipping after three days (personal experience based on an order placed last week which shipped yesterday). No names given coz I don't want downvotes from their employees ;)
Tandy and Maplin are also advertising "in stock" and "late September" respectively, and CPC appear to be selling them OTC like hot pies
Oh, and peeps on eBay are still punting activation codes. For the souvenir hunters, methinks
740 suns a year?
That's a publishing rate faster than NewsCorp. How do they manage to maintain journalistic integrity?
You, Mr AC, are Archibald Tuttle and I claim my five pounds
Re: About a million to one......
You can kill them with anagrams of the homeworld? Let's hope they don't say HEART to us.
That's a pretty scary piece of crane driving too - launching the pod like a paper plane
What just happened there?
I thought I'd have a look at my fave techie website to see if they'd picked up on today's Rasberry Pi video but it seems like I've stumbled into a film buff blog spiced with subtle references to "I'm sorry I haven't a clue".
Ah, its Friday. Carry on.
PS Eben just called your website simple. In a good way. As in loading / rendering.
"I bet the glue blobs have rounded corners though"
They'd be glue prisms if they had sharp corners or edges
Re: Mind blowing
Nazca was a long long time ago
Mastercard backed? Good luck
Credit cards widely available but MC debit cards are only available through Clydesdale and its subsidiaries.
NatWest & HSBC both claimed "increased security" as part of their decision to push Visa
We're going back to bricks & mortar
If my wife's recent experience of online shopping from the website of a major store (WHo Shall remain nameless) is anything to go by, we'll be ditching online shopping soon.
She ordered a mini filofax (yes, how 80s) last December and after they'd sent her the wrong order, then sent part of the order, then admitting their systems were locked up they're trying to weasel out of completing the order.
She's not out of pocket at the moment thanks to them refunding her card but she's stuck with a 2012 filofax diary and no filofax to put it in.
Needless to say, trading standards will stay in business for a while yet...
In Belgium they might consider Congos to be an imperial measurement
I believe the term you're looking for
is "cognitive dissonance". To paraphrase, that terrible moment when reality clashes with prejudice.
Or more properly:

Yes, it is currently my phrase of the week.
Sorry, a marketing type has already been there.
Netto's own brand brandy is labelled BrandX with a reduced serif on the X. Result looks like BrandY (though the effect is lost with this font). Not sure if the contents taste similar to brandy.
3 calling in the repo men?
My wife has had fun with 3 and repo men. We ended up getting ofcom involved and sorting it all out. Then six months later another debt collector sent her a letter... Be prepared for at least another year of crap.
"allowing unauthorized people to view and alter video stored on cruisers could torpedo court cases that rely on the DVRs for evidence"
You mean that some people _are_ authorised to alter DVR evidence?
But what happens when the worm turns?
Someone had to say it. Now its done and you can get on with proper comments
Radio4 did an article on this the other day. Apparently the crem has some kit to remove mercury from what would go up the chimney and it needs the gasses to be cooled significantly (down to 160C IIRC). The council were faced with the adding a heat exchanger and either dumping the heat with a potential compalint about global warming or doing some good with their 'free' energy. Bit of joined up thinking (IMHO) was applied et voila...
Maybe a few power stations could be run in a similar way and reduce the cooling tower clouds that can be seen for 30 miles as they dump 'waste' energy.
There was possibly another option, namely not putting mercury into the crem. I'm so glad they decided not to remove teeth from the customers. Might've caused controversy...
