Uhmmm, yeah, millions of reasons why not to drink sea water, apart from the usual fish and whale poop.

Opening the windows is a cost saving measure. That way, a petty thief doesn't need to break one to get in and steal your parking change.
Why? 'Cause it is cheaper, yet they can sell the car for more, since it is a feachurrr...
Re: Another reason for a physical key..
Only at lower speeds - depends on your car. With a 2.5 ton American V8, you always need steering assist and brake assist.
Bob is bit like playing Myst, but without the haunting music.
Re: Bob > 8
Now that you mention it...
Man, you just made me snort my coffee.
These pictures are a self correcting problem, because people get older and uglier every year.
In that photo, I dunno which is more scary, the console, or the lady's hair style...
Well, it is always a pleasure to meet another honored member of the RSD (Royal Dyslexic Society).
Because with MS, the machines are too slow for real-time streaming...
Ring sounds pretty good actually. Now I just need to get everyone and his dog to switch from Skype...
So what new weasel words will the spooks use to be able to carry on recording everything - digital delay lines for ephemeral information?
Alternative Minimum Tax
This can be fixed with an age old strategy that every country has for individuals, called the "Alternative Minimum Tax". They should just make that apply to corporations. Basically, tax is calculated two ways, and you got to pay the worst one.
MS is a slow motion train wreck, or a software death march. Despite spending huge amounts of money and heroic effort, every new product is a dud. It reminds me of those that came and went before it: Control Data, Digital Corporation, Sun, Silicon graphics...
If you stare into the abyss, then the abyss will stare right back at you.
'Whoosh...' Clue: That line is from a song.
Re: The hacker spirit...
...but, but, but... you can still take 42 of them and make a medium sized Beowulf Cluster...
Well, this is just the worst case of bad luck ever - she survived!
Re: Google admits there are INFINITY MILLION bugs in Chrome!
Try Hotel California next time. They always have room.
I'm almost sorry that they didn't find a backdoor.
However, absence of evidence is not proof of absence...
Glow in the dark cat poop
The real question is how many other drums are filled with the wrong dirt and who is going to open them all to take a look?
I would guess that adding virtual hooters to a simulation will help a lot for half the population, since the male brain will totally ignore everything else that is in view. Although except for the two pointy objects it may make the whole simulation completely pointless.
Wow, the next thing they'll find, is that it doesn't cause hairy hands either. What is the world coming to? Think of the children when you bust these myths.
Re: Like Unicorns and Fairies
It is like pins in halloween candy. Feasible, but so improbable, it never actually happened.
Wrong. Very wrong. I used to work at a very large Defence company who ended up paying M$4 due to a GPL copyright case some years ago. There were several lawsuits based on Busybox as another example. A quick google will find those.
What? Dabbs is a real person? That is unpossible.
I wonder if http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/ handles this yet.
I already patented 3-D printers on drones.
You should use ed. It is the standard.
GSM was always easy to crack
Now we know that it was even easier than that.
No big difference.
Re: Microsoft hardware
You should return your geek card for that error.
This is why roller coaster rides are scary - the loss of control.
Now imagine getting into an autonomous taxi with a Fitipaldi driver profile and the passengers screaming all the way to/from the airport...
Re: It's perhaps an image of the demise of technology in the US
Funny that building a tube amp is still just as much fun today as it was 50 years ago. The only difference is the Bluetooth module now needed at the front end http://www.aeronetworks.ca/2015/02/cool-amplifier.html
The Shack was done in by stupid management and eventually made obsolete by Sparkfun Electronics.
If this cable advert succeeds in opening up one person's wallet, then it was all worth the effort...
Well, the IBM CEO has to finance his new yacht somehow.
Re: The FBI Director must have been cringing with embarrassment..
Exactly. The Norks could not possibly have downloaded all that data over their national AOL dial-up modem account.
Re: Je suis Sony!
Seven eyes data sharing - the usual five plus NK and Russia.
Yah, having Adobe on your resume is a huge black mark for any programmer. Anyone that ever worked at Adobe, is unemployable.
So if you eat a lot of curry, you won't be scared of getting the trots. Figures...
Basically everyone now needs a dedicated keyboard with encryption built in so that a simplistic key logger will only log gobbledygook. Then you can use a different keyboard for each application. One for Excel, another for Word...
Re: That does it!
Wall Street runs on Linux actually.
You certainly can get dry DSL with no dial tone. You just have to call customer service and insist on it. Simply don't take no for an answer and it is cheaper than the package deal. There are lots of business DSL lines with no dial tone.
They are all about equally useful.
Presently I use a Mac as my main machine at home and I used the speech functions once, to see if it could be useful - and - well - no - it isn't really and I never tried it again and I don't know anybody that use it either.
Re: Commercial use forbidden?
Nope - doesn't do Domain log-on.
Finally the Intertubes of Senator Hatch may become a reality.
Re: What do UK and Iran have in common?
No, there are quite a few more countries like that, e.g. the Vatican and Saudi Arabia to name two of the best known.
The police were too busy trying to decode encrypted pron traffic, to notice the Kouachi brothers.
Therefore, the obvious solution is to outlaw encryption so that they will have more time on their uhm... hands....
I want some!
"As it turned out, it was possibly the best sounding source yet. It could sustain pace and drive, and gave body and richness to music where the Kingston SSD, for example, had been heard as limpid and lightweight. Maybe higher frequencies still weren't as insightful as direct CD playback at its best, but the sound had a relaxed quality that this listener has found quite enticing enough to plan a migration of all music onto it — pending a test of other NAS combinations!"
I don't know what they were smoking, but I think I want some...
