a Mad Max story in the related you could just be right.
I wrote my master's using Wordstar on an early PC and was quite happy with it. It's my experiences a few years later using Word that I don't wish to repeat. (Best part of a minute just to start the program, getting random reverts because I had foolishly turned on quick save, etc.)
Clarke's (Third) Law
Don't make me post pictures of my scars.
(IIRC) with its animated dangling patch cables. Believe me if you think this is skeumorphic you haven't seen much of the audio software that's out there.
When Ziggy was headhunted, I doubt "has vision" appeared anywhere on the list of requirements.
It was probably all over his CV though.
exaggerates Bad comedy misrepresents. Try adding Stepin Fetchit to your list and see how far you get.
Wot no Maxwell Smart
"missed it by that much"
"What they don't consider is that each sub-optimal buying decision reduces their disposable income until they can no longer avoid strict economic decisions."
Well the point of being rich is that you will never have to make those "strict economic decisions". Good old conspicuous consumption for ever and ever. Of course if you're merely well off and you don't recognise this then maybe you have a problem.
Seconded. All those lovely knobs and sliders to twiddle and whatever you do with a slider.
I have an 8TB Seagate shingled drive sitting on my desk right now. Definitely a consumer drive (~AU300) and definitely useful. I shoot a lot of HD video and I have no intention of losing it to a crash. Speed is perfectly adequate in that I haven't noticed my backup jobs to be significantly longer.
The giant Europan slugs are filter feeders like whales. On the other hand they are extremely sexually dimorphic and this thing looks suspiciously like the smaller male form (basically just a self-aware penis).
It's certainly going on my list of bad band names.
I assume the photons start to regain the lost energy once they pass the centre of the void. But by then 0.9 billion years have elapsed and the universe is less dense so they'll never recover it all. Hence the very slight cooling.
Faux Science Slayer thinks someone stole something from Edison. Now I know he really is crazy.
Don't worry the rednecks guns don't have sufficient range to shoot down a rocket - not until someone builds a nice laser rifle at least.
This splitting rockets into segments things sounds like a good idea. Further proof that Musk is a genius.
Gotta have a slot!
I was expecting Steve!
"The problem isn't technology, it's people."
Exactly! That's one of our unofficial mottoes here at Cyberdyne Systems.
And here at Cybus Industries we have already fixed that problem.
Sorry, I upvoted that because it amused me. If it helps I could downvote a few of your past posts.
Sometimes you just have to go with the elegance of French.
would have been so much better if it had been about Walt's lust for an iThing instead of a morally dubious but touching concern for his family. In fact, I'm not convinced we aren't looking at a badly translated review of the Chinese remake.
"Surely that's already covered under the common law."
You've never been on the internet, then.
last time I was killed by a distracted driver.
Even "rabid libertarians" understand the need for laws against potentially lethal activities.
Patience. They still have to finish the secret submarine base under Rockall.
Why do you think LOHAN been taking so long.
is a bonus!
Always buy one from each party just to be sure.
"does anyone say 'upgrade' anymore?"
I do. 'Refresh' sounds like something involving lemon scented napkins.
A horribly pretentious name but since it's now been appropriated to describe schoolchildren gluing pieces of macaroni onto paper I doubt it'll last long.
A test is only a failure if you don't get the data.
North Pole! Northern Hemisphere Chauvinist. South Pole's better. There's penguins and you'll have somewhere to stand when the ice melts.
No, but if you put your hard drive between a pair of old speaker magnets it will compress the bits thus increasing capacity. Note: don't do this with SSDs - it just causes the chips to leak bits which can get very messy quickly.
If NASA ever decides to revive the space shuttle.
For cars, probably not so much.
but Musk has real vision. Even when the project is a bit out there like the hyperloop it's not mere dick measuring. (And if Branson has any aspiration to be the British Musk he'd be better off funding SABRE.)
If your video is about the subject of many people's phobias you would do well to check that the work experience kid hasn't slapped on some inappropriately ominous background music.
Bring on the Scoville scale.
Write Once Read Seldom if Ever. Just what Facebook needs.
Probably won't catch on, though.
Equally there have been (US) cases where they have been allowed. Since Google presumably have clean hands in the matter I'd say there chances are good.
The Martian syrup mines are indeed organic in origin but no life could possibly survive that concentration of sugar.
of people who I am convinced were conceived in some sort of two girls one cup scenario. I'd post it here but almost every one of them has a larger legal budget than I do.
I just put my wifi router on the ro
Lego + magnets = pure win.
analyse the ink to determine the true history of squid.
The cars will indeed refuel themselves. They'll be electric and if your Roomba can do it so can a robot car. They won't repair themselves but if your taxi driver repairs their car you probably should be looking for another taxi driver. (Why would a qualified mechanic be driving a taxi?) That just leaves the cleaning. A few low paid workers in a shed replacing hundreds of drivers is not exactly a massive financial burden. The first company to market with robot taxis will make a killing and one of the first corpses will be Uber.
Google gives 658 thousand hits for 'confab' as opposed to 46 thousand for your preferred version so I think El Reg gets away with it. Or are you suggesting the CCC guys are overweight in which case shame on you for propagating stereotypes.
