Have Ford cracked the "50 years away" nuclear problem?

It was predictable and boring. Letting rip at the blogger was painful to watch, there's only been a few really painful moments in all three seasons and this was by far the worst.
Next episode, Big Head will get sued for breaking his $20 million payoff to keep quiet.
As a 3 customer, I've been hoping this would go through.
3's data rates are superb, best out of every network I've been on. But the black spots are big and plentiful. Was really hoping this merge would help fix it.
The gold chain was fine, the fact they all had a go at it made it work. The low 'joke for the sake of it' was last seasons Kick Starter bro thing with Dinesh' cousin.
But the last 30 seconds really brought the whole episode down to it's knees. Perhaps, as you've mentioned, it was just a ruse to throw Jack off, but without knowing the history you've mentioned it just looks like Richard was a dick. He's always been unlucky but never a dick.
That's funny because the article suggests anything but. The technology for using spent rods has been used for the last 60 years and they're quoting almost 80% of the price of a standard light water reactor.
That video hurts my head in all the right ways
I tried to watch the video but her accent sounds like it came from Planet 9 and sent me to sleep.
What surprises me the most is Apple emailed TheReg and told them something other than fuck off.
When the hell did that happen? I thought Apple hated TheReg?
"Later this year Samsung will ship 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB, and 7.68TB versions of the drive. It expects this drive "to rapidly become the overwhelming favourite over hard disks for enterprise storage systems," not differentiating between performance and capacity data storage in its statement."
I assume this means for the user base market yes?
I've been putting off NAS drive upgrades for a few months now waiting for WD 8TB Red's to come out. Think I may just wait that little bit longer for these bad boys.
Wouldn't justice include being taken to Sweden and questioned for rape?
I appreciate he fears being extradited to the US, but this right here isn't about that. Why not prove your innocence, then haul yourself up in a Russian embassy in Sweden if you spot any blacked out SUV's following you around. Kinda feels like maybe the US thing is an excuse and he put his willy where it wasn't wanted.
I spat yogurt over my keyboard reading that. Funniest Reg comment ever.
I thought the outrage surrounding Blood Diamonds were the massacres, the forced labor and child army's in the RUF.
To me this just reads as "kids have jobs". No mention of forced labor, massacres, Leo DiCaprio avoiding bad guys.
Sooooo, the problem is "the inhabitants of a poor country try to make a living as Western education, health and energy aren't available to them."
Am I missing something?
At 1TB you're probably right. But if these pushed to 2/3/4 or higher they'd prove useful in a home NAS.
I'm running a HP ProLiant capped at three 3.25" bays and one 5.25" bay. With something like this I reckon I could fit 10+ in the 5.25" bay.
Obviously it wouldn't be cost effective, it'd be much easier to just buy a second NAS; but what a great idea.
I think you underestimate how many separate windows I can have open at any one given time. That's a whole lot of streaming porno right there.
That last critical update for Exchange 2013, pow! There goes my Public Folder management scripts.
"Because you're an asshole"
Oh look, my monitor looks like lunch.
Ha, this is one of those rare occasions where the Daily Mail can accurately give off a shock head line.
"Living on Kepler 438b gives you cancer!"
Solar winds? Neh, it was them bloody refugees that stripped the atmosphere don't ya know. That are those filthy queers and their lose morals.
No, they are Muslims, just not of the same sect as say Sunni, Shai or even main stream Westernised. They pray to their invisible super hero friend, that makes them religious. They identify themselves as Muslims, they're Muslims.
Atheists don't murder one another because of their different beliefs. No Atheist has ever opened fire on innocents because they believe in the big rip and not the eternal expansion of the universe.
Profit and power start/prolong wars. Remove religion entirely and you're going to find it bloody difficult to justify a bombing campaign when suddenly the world is a whole lot calmer.*
*Unless of course your China. Or Russia. Or a Nork.
From 14 December until mid February, NASA wants to hear from those pilots, engineers, scientists and doctors who think they've got the Right Stuff.
It says wannabes' CVs must include "a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics", and "at least three years of related, progressively responsible professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft".
So sleep deprived, chronic masturbaters who's math skills drop off after the 10x table aren't on the wanted list?
Cast your mind back to the early 2000's and I use to run an illegal mp3 website. We didn't own our own storage, we used to host our mp3's on the various hosting company's offering 50mb/100mb/200mb (128kbs mp3's were considered high quality at the time) here and there.
The website got more popular, the hosting companies got wise.
I have a 1TB Office365 subscription. There's 12,000 MP3's on there, 65GB of photos, 118GB of HD home movies and less than a 1gb of actual documents.
I find it really hard to believe that people exceeding the 1TB limit aren't doing so illegally. Remember in the UK it's illegal to rip your own music now; I bet the same law extends to your own DVD's.
Well. If I had it.
Imagine how much sex this man isn't having as a result of looking of IoT kettles.
Because that's about the biggest fucking FAIL of win10.
Considering they're one of if not the front runner on the NAS OS front it seems pretty daft to me they don't offer a purchased version for none standard hardware.
I've been using it on a HP NAS for years now and have zero incentive to buy their hardware just for the support. Offer me a pay for version though and I'll snap their hands off.
To pull it out of Saturn's orbit and smash that shit into Mars/Venus for some terraforming action?
I'm no scientist (shock horror) but I believe you need something of the same or larger mass to pull at it, drag it out of Saturn's gravitational pull then send it packing with a whole bunch of mind boggling maths towards the destined planet yah?
So erm, is Katy Hopkins ego big enough? How many peaches does Bruce Willis need to eat to build up the strength to punch it off course?
I clicked the eating a peach link in the hope there was something more significant than Bruce Willis eats fruit.
No. No there wasn't.
I feel like I've just been raped. And not in the good way.
My first Android phone coming from Nokia was a Desire. I was late to the smart phone world, I believe there were 3 variants of the iPhone before I dropped Symbian.
The Desire was an incredible phone no doubt. Where it suffered was its space, or lack of it. You needed to crack it open and use the APP2SD thingy to really get the most out of it.
I can't remember where I went from there but I've had a One S, and a One Mini at some point. Both excellent phones if not premium.
I'm not one who's willing to carry a ridiculous oversized phone around in my pocket, I want something that matches my penis size... Small. Since HTC aren't realising a One (M9) Mini that's me throwing the towel in.
Since picking up a Sony Z3 compact I'm amazed at the difference. They really have put a premium phone in a smaller handset, this thing is amazing. Sure it lacks the same sex appeal HTC One's have, and lets face it, they're bloody stunning, even over iPhone's; but the speed, micro SD slot, fewer junk apps (fewer, not zero sadly) and small price tag make this a hard choice to go back on.
Sorry HTC. Unless you follow Sony's lead that's me washing my hands of you.
And I couldn't be happier with this phone.
I've been a HTC devote for a decade now so coming away was a big step.
No regrets at all. Well I did miss BlinkFeed but found the means to add it. Now definitely no regrets
So by shit gaming rig, do you mean Battlefield 4 shit? Or can't even run Candy crush shit?
It's been a long time since I've paid any attention to computer hardware so this stuff goes well over my head. I'm running a 1st gen Celeron NUC with OpenELEC and whilst it does the job fine for now I'm very conscious of the oncoming wave of x265/4K movies.
Not to mention I'll one day bother to set it up as an emulator.
Any thoughts anyone?
I've been more excited about Silicon Valley this year than I have with GoT. Even now I'm finding myself pondering what next for the lads of California more so than "WTF!" for the nights of the watch.
Love this show, hilarious.
I remember reading an article a while back as to why a remake wouldn't work and one of the key parts that stuck in my head was all the weird random shit.
Remember when Cloud dressed up as a woman to infiltrate the Don's Mansion? If you did all the extra bits he jumped in a hut tub with a bunch of gay wrestlers. Bloody hilarious for its time but in an age of high-def gaming with fantastic voice acting, will this translate so well or will it be left out?
Also I'm a little nervous about Square's passion for over the top cut scenes where our heroes can scale entire sky scrapers in one jump or knock down buildings with a swing of a sword.
This could be the greatest game since the original or feel like my youth has been raped and not in the good way
And one of the main arguments for staying in the UK and not immigrating has been internet speeds.
Surprisingly robust in Thailand most of East Asia was ruddy crap, I guess that was to be expected but even in Australia and New Zealand I struggled to get a decent speed uploading all my videos to OneDrive/NAS back home.
My heart lies in Christchurch/Dunedin or Rotorua but unless I can get uncapped 100mb speeds my feet will firmly stay here under the grasp of the VirginMedia empire.
So as someone in the southern hemisphere on Friday, am I going to miss out or do I just have to look in a different direction? Like through the floor or something?
Prof Hawkins accepts job as the Daily Mail headline creator.
That's what I was thinking.
A year ago I ran a pretty decent spec pc in the evening and weekends. It did everything. Download legally purchased movies as well as run XBMC.
Since then I've switched to a HP N54L always on NAS, 2 raspberry PI's and an Intel NUC.
My electricity bill has gone down.
I remember the first gen XBOX and PS3 were power hungry monsters, I can assume the Xbox One and PS4 dim the lights a little? So why on earth would anyone want to run their media ctr through a power hungry beast when as someone has already said, most TV's these days will play any file you throw at it at no extra cost?
Clue? Does MS have one?
I didn't know about any vulnerability in Syno. I mean aside from the standard "Update your NAS now" emails which tell of bug fixes, not what the bugs are and how they're being used.
Had mine front facing on the net for a while without any problems (touch wood). I don't pretend to know anything the Linux code or how to use the shell.
I disabled the admin account and created a new one. I have SSH turned off. I have SSL turned on and auto-redirected. I have auto-block IP on 2 password fuck-ups.
Am I doing everything right?
Running a HP ProLiant N54L with 4 x 4TB WD Red drives.
Added an ICY Dock 5.25" -> 6x 2.5" drives and been itching for 2TB WD Red 2.5" drives for some time.
I'll give it 6 months to see how they bed out but this is incredible.
I stopped reading the article when I came across the stress over search.
I hated windows 7 search. I preferred XP. At least in XP I knew that doggy was genuinely searching for my files, in 7 I was never really certain it'd finished.
Windows 8 search is incredible. Start > TYPE > oh look there it is. How this can be deemed as difficult is beyond me.
For someone to work in enterprise IT not knowing this, or even coming across it by accident is disturbing.
£3000 for a small reactor vs several more for solar panals on your roof.
Would it not pay to have this kid build something a little bigger in a garden shed and cut yourself off from the grid?
HP ProLiant N54L with cashback from Amazon.
4 bays, 1x 5.25 bay, 2 PCIE ports, 2GB of RAM upgradeable to 16GB, comes with a CDRom and a 250GB HD, something like 8x USB ports all for around £125.
Synology DSM on a USB drive from xpenology and you can have a shit hot NAS for next to nothing.
Got me an ICY dock 6x 2.5" for the 5.25" bay, just waiting for WD to release 2TB 2.5" Red drives and I'm throwing in an extra 12TB.
Because that's how I roll.
I wear a watch and I have no shame in saying they're my fashion statement. I haven't crossed the £1000 barrier on a watch but would sure as hell like to if I ever had any real money.
Watches are awesome.
Smart watches? That's what gets me. If you see someone wearing a digital watch they're generally 12 year olds who can't tell the time. Even with Apple branding a digital watch is still a digital watch regardless of if it has bluetooth in or not. And that's what I just don't get. It doesn't matter how much it costs you're still a fucking idiot if you can't read a clock face. And if one of the settings is to display time in said clock face then buy a real watch, stop being a mindless gimp and get some real taste about you.
If I said to my wife I'd like to watch a program where real people are travelling to and then setting up a colony on Mars I'd get the "well you can watch that shit upstairs" treatment.
If my wife said to me "Joey and Shauna slept together and now Dale's pissed. Mars One is the best reality TV show ever" I'd
tell ask if I was allowed to watch TV upstairs.
Maybe down to my complete lack of scientific knowledge but I've never understood the fascination with terraforming Mars.
I appreciate once on the planet even with today’s technology an astronaut could survive in a pod until his resources run out so that makes a trip there encouraging. Turning the planet green is a dam site easier on Mars than anywhere else in the solar system but a blue sky and plenty of oxygen won't change the gravity (or lack of it) situation.
In a future where getting to Mars takes days/weeks rather than months/years the idea of travelling between two worlds, even for just a holiday isn't unrealistic. But doesn't the lack of gravity fuck up your body? Isn't that why astronauts are meant to work out all the time? To keep their bone density acting normally?
If theories are correct then water was brought to Earth on a comet. A big smash is also theorised as to the reason the Earth is on a wonky angle giving us seasons. So therefore would it not be possible to send a shit load of probes out to the Oort cloud, use gravitational pulling or any other means (would nukes do the job?) to push ice balls into the inner solar system and strike Venus? Run away greenhouse gases can be curbed even with today's technology, as long as we can cool the planet down enough to set foot on it.
Venus is ideal for us in size, density and gravity. The insanely long days aren’t as detrimental to our health as obesity with no bones, and I’m pretty sure the right sized rock(s) at the right angle could speed up the rotation.
My knowledge on the workings of the solar system are based on Wikipedia, Morgan Freeman’s dodgy Through the Wormhole and that other documentary with that man in it. I’m hardly the pinnacle of expertise. Just based on what I know it seems a no brainer to go elsewhere.
My wife and I went to see him in Nottingham on Friday and without a shadow of a doubt he surpassed our expectations to become the funniest stand-up act we've ever seen.
Whilst there were a few moments I’d argue his facts were wrong (that’s not to say I’m right, I’ve just read differently) his overall arguments against… well… everything were well thought out and structurally sound.
He’s coming across as an incredibly intelligent man with a good incite however having witnessed an Anonymous protest before (not this million march thing, just a random protest) I get the impression they themselves don’t really have a clue what they’re against and so I’d question why he was there at all.
If during the course of the night someone flung poo in the general direction of Cameron and Osborne they’d get two thumbs up from me. Actually through some at Miliband. He’s a cunt too.
And a BIll Hicks marathon.
I didn't read the article. I just like the sound of blowing £100 on drugs.
There isn't a nation on this planet that would risk economic disaster by starting a nuclear war. Because that's what would happen.
I beg to differ in our allies wouldn't step up should we become a target of a nuclear flattening (only an attack from Russia or China would put the nerves up the US, anyone else would probably find missiles en route before the dust has settled on London) but let’s just assume this theory is correct.
The UK is a baron wasteland having been smashed to shit by Pakistan. The rest of the world, including Russia and China, are outraged by the devastating attack that’s left England in an apocalyptic state and Western Europe under a thick cloud of radioactive waste. No one has the balls to retaliate on our behalf but they can starve the nation dry by sanctioning them to death. No one would dream of breaking the sanctions for fear of being cut off themselves. The results are Pakistan becomes a two bit nation surviving on dust or they start another fight, one that doesn’t go unnoticed.
The only real threat to nuclear devastation is a terrorist attack. A couple of rogue scientists at an Iranian camp steal enough supplies to build a fragile but destructive suitcase bomb. They detonate it at the peak of the Shard and a sizeable chunk of London is vaporised. A few days later the terrorist group “all your capitals R belong to us” takes credit for the bomb. Who are we going to nuke? Iran? The entire Middle East? It’s not going to work.
The world is becoming a smaller place by the day, our economies are intertwined to the point where when one falls a whole heap follow, as the credit crunch has proven. We don’t need nukes any more. Their only use would be to battle an alien race however this is almost certainly a none starter as any race that’s mastered interstellar travel has almost certainly devised a far superior technology to a big fucking bomb on a very large firework.
Bitches be loco my friend. Bitches be loco.
The spare rooms a shit hole thanks to my wife and the 5 meeelion pairs of fucking shoes she owns but we live in a quiet area, you'll be fine.
Well that's hardly as bad as 99.98%.
Stop being a pussy and take the risks, the odds aren't that bad.
