A case of pickiness
Isn't it more impressive that the camera survived the same fall...without the protective case...and continued filming...?
Maybe they'll get Huey, Dewey, and Louie style robots to do the gardening for them?
...or they were Austrian?
Vaio Z series
The top of the range Vaio Z series notebooks have dual SSD drives - 256 GB in a RAID array. Well, they describe it as being two 128 GB drives per unit, and two units per machine although I get the impression from the forums that this just complicates matters.
Mind you the machine is >£3000 so not exactly a price/performance "sweetspot"...
Fuzz out my bot
If boffins are spotting my bot then I'm gonna call Google to fuzz it out
"There was a time when French colonials were encouraged to intermarry with natives."
Casts a whole different light on the phrase, "active fur trade"
Still, I've seen, "Lifeforce" and think I'm happy to subjugate myself to my "fur trading" overlords...
Wibbly wobbly safety
I know it's not easily used by the billions of web users out there but Sandboxie has proved to be a wonderful program for me. It can easily be used to sandbox a browser, including firefox, and as far as I humbly know, prevents the siege of nasties. Is this an exploit that circumvents my primary guardian, NoScript? Or is this a dodgy enterprise intending to pimp half-baked exploits?
Thank goodness that it's just a Windows bug on some phones. I started to get really worried for a moment when I received a message from 2016 saying, "Please help - Shut down the Large Hadron Collider - The Portal has opened - agggghh"
Is there any pub in the UK that doesn't serve Stella (or "Wife Beater", if you will)?
Doesn't the average human being have a higher average "energy density" than the core of the sun. Or is that different from heat generation? - hell it's in Wackypedia so it must be true. The core of the sun has a pretty low, "specific energy" doesn't it?
Cripes, it may me just want to sit in an icy bath of water to think I could be responsible for spawning interdimensional beings.
...has definitely just arrived from a parallel dimension
Tired in the other leg?
Not surprising they get tired in the bio-leg, given that it's having to heft the sodding great big lithium battery that will power the mech-leg for a short time.
Thumbs up for all this though!
...lost for words
A mobile phone with camera
I have an HTC touch pro 2. It has a camera on one side and a touch sensitive screen on the other. Surely one of you clever programmers can turn it into a Magic Mouse? Camera senses motion while face down (hmm, might need some more illumination) - heck - it could even detect rotational motion. And, the touch screen serves as mouse button and swiping surface. Interacting beautifully with PC using bluetooth.
And it's also a mobile phone, and a storage device. And a computer.
Just a thought.
re: Paris - I'm sorry - did you say, "cult"?
Didn't Richard Gere once, "eat" his hamster?
Aren't the gaseous outputs of ruminants vaunted to be the worst greenhouse gas of all? Bad Google, go to your bed!
I thought it was a perfect cock,not a perfect clock, that got one laid.
At first when I read the last bit, I thought it said, "luminous CHEST hair that falls freely to her shoulders". Wow, that's some gal
Peter Davidson anyone?
Although not necessarily the best Doctor, Davidson was only 30 when rocked up in 1981...
No need for satnav
You don't need GPS to be an idiot. I once got stuck cycling in Regents Park, not realising that I had entered what is known as the, "Inner Circle". When I spotted Telecom Tower, in the distance, coming round for the third time, I realised it was Blair Witch territory.
Finding the landlines
Here's a very helpful website which helps you find landlines corresponding to these 0870 numbers:
I believe that the newest version of the Firefox plugin called, "Noscript" overcomes this JarJar vulnerability & stops a whole bunch of other nasties. Admittedly, it makes web browsing a bit ugly, but the web is a pretty ugly place isn't it?
We recently bought the bottom-of-the-range Roomba for cleaning our flat. We have wooden floors throughout, and the sucker gets switched on 2-3 times a week, just before I leave for work. It cleans just fine, and stops the onslaught of the dust bunnies. It's not a turbine-toting monster but a little-and-often really does the job. They should definitely program it to run & hide when the kids are around, though.
