Bring forth the ducking stool
Warmologists with torches & pitchforks, non-IPCC-approved science turned me into a newt, etc, etc
This _is_ a Transparency Report Shop, isn't it?
Oh YES, Sir, absolutely, Sir
Good, I'll have a transparency report for Skype, please
It might be a bit runny, Sir...
The runnier the better!
Ohhhhh. The cat's eaten it.
Oracle seem so preoccupied with shooting themselves in the foot lately, they obviously still have a toe left with MySQL written on it. The Java one's hanging on by a thread, too.
This from Ubuntu
p maria - reachability analyzer for Algebraic System Nets
p maria-doc - documentation of Maria
nothing to see here, either.
Re: "so the models are evidently wrong"
Which would be fine if the anti-common-sense Inquisition didn't spout these models as gospel and denounce all else as heresy.
But they do. Which is not science, it's politics.
Super! Maintenant je ne dois pas penser pour une autre microsecond si on dit 'du' ou 'de'!
Merci, mon professeur!
"After expressions of quantity, the partitive is usually reduced to DE which is invariable:"
Can I at once urge all our French cousins to upload *shitloads* of pics to facebook. Thousands, please.
In other news, short Failbook stock now
Biere pour tout, parce-que je n'ai plus du vin :o(
Perhaps if MS had offered to underwrite purchase of all unsold units...
So the manufs could build the stuff in confidence of no stock liability.
Oh but even MS knew that would be a stupid plan.
So why'd these employees wanna leave
If apple are so godlike to work for.
Oh, apple weren't even in the top 100 best co's to work for, you say?
(P.S. need a worm-on-a-hook icon for 'bait')
Doesn't have the same number of devs as MS?
Bloody hell, they do a damned good job, then, or their devs are way better, or something.
Says more about MS, possibly that with x times the devs of Google they still can't get their shit right after 30 years.
Just volcanoes and people?
I'm sure volcanism (vulcanism, surely?) covers a bit more than volcanoes, maybe not, but it sounds like the sea is being completely ignored?
There is quite a bit of the stuff, after all.
If you're trying to show that ACC is real vs normal natural CC which the human race hasn't been round long enough to actually measure firsthand then just using volcanoes and people stuff (which presumably is the anthro data) sounds like fitting the data to the desired outcome to the lay-person.
If I wanted to show Jimmy Savile as a nice chap I'd produce a graph of time vs charitable funds raised. If not then a chart of time vs alleged victims and so forth. Whichever chart I produced would be dependent upon the revenue I thought it would produce.
So. Just apple then because they thought they had a better idea than fitting NFC. Which was to not fit NFC.
Meanwhile Rest of World moves on. Without them.
I had to go to hospital and have intensive psychological therapy due to my reliance on the media to tell me how to think and react to the world around me as I am utterly incapable of forming an independent thought for myself.
The very kind private doctor took one look at me and warned me I would need a prolonged course of very expensive treatment though he did refer me to his brother who happens to run a no-win-no-fee company who will be able to sue the BBC on my behalf for the cost of it.
Re: Why would anyone trust this idiot?
Doesn't affect them in any meaningful way.
Re: Sod that, wake me up when........
Already done quite a few years ago actually, IIRC, Virtual Retinal Display
Re: Journal of Mass Media Ethics
Well, more of a pamphlet .. ;o)
Do you have any light reading..?
Mother fined £12k for not locking bathroom door causing little Jimmy to cop an eyeful when he accidentally walked in for a pee.
Playboy + Hardcore ?
Re: What irks me about their argument
I suspect it's less about the swivel-eyed foamings of the NRA or public outrage every time these horrendous scenarios get repeated and more about how much money flows from arms companies to government.
That (imho) is what fuels the inaction of government to legislate.
Re: What irks me about their argument
Only cos they're not allowed to drive tanks into Gaza at that age...
What a bunch of fatuous assclowns
Anyway, I've been playing too much Mario. Off to jump on some heads now while I look for gold coins on the High Street.
simply wants to "monetize"
I'd humbly submit that patent suits brought with the purpose of harming a competitor's ability to compete in the same market as you would also be trolling of a particularly disingenuous form.
Yes apple, I'm looking at you.
And before the appleists (there's less of them these days, I understand, from recent news) shout 'Samsung' or whatever, don't forget Samsung et al launched COUNTER suits and RESPONDED to apple's attacks...
Try Canon for real service.
Faulty camera, model discontinued.
Replaced for free with current version about 3 models higher. Wasn't even an SLR, or a 'valuable customer' model like a 7D or 1D.
Did Italy not teach them anything?
Maybe not idiots. Perhaps Con-Artists / Chancers.
That is all.
I wouldn't trust either of them
But I'd go for drinks with KD...
Re: Pull the other one, DOJ
Plus a vote for torches & pitchforks icon too!
A Madame Guillotine icon for Bastille day :oD
Too short of cash?
Or maybe too much spare cash lying around so spend some via the legal dept before year end.
It's a bizarre fight to pick over essentially nothing.
Forecasting is notoriously difficult
What? The IPCC's crystal ball of doom might actually not be right?
Golly. Yet they tout themselves as the ultimate gospel of apocalypse (unless you give generously, dear lobbing targets)
Re: If facebook were smart...
Just set it at 5p per message or something tiny then troll the Justin Bieber, animal rights and Warmist pages.
A million pennies is much better than a tenner :o)
Re: £10 million over 3 years...
I can save that clown 10 Million.
Re: Should be free
Or they should provide free copies to students expected to present work using their damned software.
Libre Office isn't accepted at our boys' school for some stuff.
Even worse, though, they're being taught their AS/A2 ICT-computing or whatever it's called this week.. with VISUAL BASIC ...
"Not be penalised"
By Microsoft for not buying from Microsoft?
Anyone have a video?
Of what happens when a bird flies through the beam?
Independance-Day-on-Sea. Largely drivel. Save yourself 100mins of your life.
What clown would buy that? And at that price?
mind you. If it were made by apple...
It probably takes as long to twat about finding the 'recipe' (think just add a coupla cardomom and a pinch of turmeric for pilau rice, too hard to remember?) and setting the damned thing up as it does to boil a kettle and chuck the water and extras into a pot with a fistful of basmati.
Mind you, we did have the Segway stomach emptier for the terminally lardy the other day I spose... Can't help thinking tech is making 20% of the human race smarter and 80% dumber. Still, gives 20% of us a market for the weird shit we invent I guess.
Re: Here's some free speach
Even if it's bombed into you via several tons of democracy TNT ?
Now, I agree in principle if...
Every machine contributing to the DDOS actively chose to via its owner clicking 'Join in the DDOS' which is what LOIC does IIRC...
A zombie botnet used for DDOS does not have the explicit consent of its owner to contribute to the attack, therefore it's akin to someone stealing their voting slip and voting on their behalf in a way they would not choose to.
Therefore not free speech, a rigged vote. Which is illegal.
They can use SEP's without being sued
They are, however, expected to actually PAY for them.
And there's plenty of porky salad-dodgers that would seriously consider this instead of walking a mile a day and pie-avoidance (with attendant small money savings).
Let them be fleeced, it's a lazy bastard tax.
In other news
Following on from the success of the first Hobbit movie, MGM announce that it will now be extended to span five films.
For a 'crime' that was _prevented_
So no loss actually occurred yet he has to pay restitution for no damages on top of the farcical sentence for not actually harming anyone for conspiracy to do something which causes next to no harm (unless you believe the MAFIAA). He likely even paid for the cinema ticket, too.
Seriously. BUY SECOND HAND.
How to solve USPTO underfunding...
Drop software patents.
Re: What are they thinking/smoking?
I don't think they're trying to 'outdo' google or apple. What Canonical seem to be doing, quite cleverly, is recognising there's an existing Linux kernel available on the world's most prevalent Mobile OS and then leveraging that to make Ubuntu accessible to even more people and in a way that for some of them will make great sense.
Stuff carrying a phone, laptop and a bloody tablet. Just carry the phone in your pocket and grab an HDMI dock for presentations.
Quite right, too
That's why I have 3TB of drives RAIDed together on the home server. No way would I trust all my shit to some cloudy storage outfit. I have the final say-so over the existence (or not) of my data and at least if I jigger it up my excuse to the wife of where her 1000's of photos have gone is 'I screwed up' instead of 'dunno, perhaps there's someone I can call somewhere'

How about a study on...
The effect of continually being at war, telling your electorate they're perpetually under attack by mysterious unseen forces, glorifying conflict with Yeehaw-look-how-clever-we-are nosecam videos of bombs flying through 'enemies' pantry windows and woohoo-look-at-the-shockwave-from-that-2000-pounder and the endless bigging up of futuristic military weaponry on the design cards?
Just a thought, y'know, putting an idea out there...
