on a stick. But definitely no treat.
that Bert Rutan has/will invent(ed) a time machine.
Re: I wonder how many manhours and expense ....
Didn't you know, they outsource it to the El Reg headline writers. It's a nice little sideline.
Re: Is it really metadata?
Well if you wanted to be ultra-pedantic you could argue that any data on a system that is not (directly or indirectly) user-generated constitutes metadata but have an upvote anyway.
The pics would be useless too
Who wants to see just the edges of a hot models?
Per ardua add alcohol.
Looks more likely to me
that they were on the awning of the pizzeria next door (much more visible, easy access via the conveniently located windows, news reports are always wrong about something) so can we please restart this thread with Italian jokes instead.
Time to arm
the fuel air self destruct system. They do have one, don't they?
Re: smashing idea, but...
Well the paintball sentry gun in the video above appears to have a colour rejection mode so I suppose you'd just have to paint your dog blue.
if if doesn't work against an alien what chance does it have against a cat.
I'd like to see the day
when Top Gear confines its insults to the Welsh.
Re: Battery Times
"Fact is Hydrogen is the cheapest & cleanest plus fastest Tech we have today"
Pity it's efficiency is on a par with an electric powered steam engine.
Re: But what I want to know is...
Appraise it. They're probably working on sending a Death Star to disintegrate it. Can't have the price of a common form of one of the most abundant elements in the universe fall to it's natural level.
watching avidly on the tellies in their room
Don't you mean snuggled up under the covers with their phone watching Porntube.
The relevance of this comment is left as an exercise for the rader.
Well I've heard
it's Lego all the way at NASA.
El Reg tries to avoid being sexist and ends up being (mildly) sexist and racist at the same time.
I'd like to see you say that to
Cracked is actually funny.
Dammit, it's always Hal
Why don't I ever get the sexy female AI?
sounds like someone who would appreciate a bit of hot photon-on-photon action.
A website where you can make playmobil reconstructions
sounds pretty damn good. O, the joys of being fifteen again.
I don't think
I'd let him anywhere near my balloon.
Maybe Huawei could rename itself 'Kodak'
It's supposedly easily pronounceable in every language on the planet and isn't been used for much these days.
Unfortunately what it wants to do will be determined by its creators and in ways that they don't even begin to understand (cf. children). And that's reason to be afraid.
It's New Mexico
so it probably means they were really looking for $80M in cash buried in plastic barrels.
Can I get it as a nipple ring
or even a prince albert. "No officer, I swear I was just unlocking my phone".
It's the new Apple masterplan - patent everything they think Google might be going to invent.
What about it?
Some people are Mormons, others are Sufis but this study wasn't about that. By all means cling to your comforting consequence-free beliefs but the issue here is precisely that non-evidence based belief does have significant real-world consequences.
Re: So not actually making graphene then.
What I was thinking. I suppose that at four or five layers even a tiny speck is essentially a very thin sheet and has all the nice electrical properties but you're not going to be making a cat's hammock let alone a space elevator with specks.
Re: general ignorance question
Well, you're half way to aperture synthesis interferometry. Useful for increasing angular resolution of measurements. See the Square Kilometer Array for an example of the technique at radio frequencies.
Re: How can I be the first one to say that another sort of strap-on
Well since this thing is 3D it's probably the perfect way to experience having your eye poked out with the other sort.
cat videos, and photos of cupcakes on Pinterest. Probably in that order.
Something for everyone, really.
I watched the Mythbusters 'impossible' episode yesterday
It was all about squeezing shit into bags. And pigs.
It was, of course, not relevant to anything here.
FOUND ON THE MOON
to remember the mechanical calculator - the preferred business machine for most of the twentieth century. Slide rules where for science and engineering types.
Chris Morris may be a genius but when you need someone to say "God Damn These Electric Sex Pants" Matt Berry's your man.
"Java-based electoral software" is a phrase that should never have reason to exist.
Nice plan AC. Edison famously killed an elephant but I think you might usefully update that with a giraffe.
I read that as the Univesity of Woolloomooloo
and couldn't understand why the experiment didn't involve Bruce and Sheila.
Your average ambulance chaser
works on a no win - no fee basis.
Re: Newsweek? That's still around?
Back. Or so I heard, though I can't imagine it'll be for long.
Zombie Newsweek, just waiting for a spade to the head.
Shame about the headline.
Re: Managing names
1. The Skydrive case was a straightforward trademark dispute - nothing specifically to do with domain names. (Skydrive could have being at skydrive.microsoft.com - Rupert would still have been upset.)
2. Ditto. Companies need to protect their trademarks even if sometimes they do it badly.. (There's nothing ironic about competing interests - it's just how the world works.)
3. Get your own domain name - they practically give them away these days.
The domain name system is not without it's problems but it's nothing that can't be fixed.
Actually I did expect better.
I expected at least one penis pun.
(edit: thanks AC below.)
The Quebecóis captions
Are just the same loop of ooohs and aaarhs but with more accents. (And also the occasional mention of 'gros seins' but I wouldn't know about that.)
Is there a Regretsy equivalent for Kickstarter?
There should be.
So it's a combination of a fridge magnet (a magnetically attached accessory) and say any USB device. At least the Workmate is an inventive combination - it's more than "a device with feature A and also feature B".
Can't top that.
