Are you sure of this?
But do they go sideways through time?
The next Super-Hyper Lensman weapon?
Kimball Kinnison has found how to bring stars from another dimension with inert intrinsic velocities faster than the speed of light and is now inerting them to crash into the Star system that the Eddorians escaped to - its the Ultimate Ultimate Ultimate Super-weapon!

The first Highlander movie was excellent... the sequels and subsequent TV series, not so much
Re: "Boffins befuddled..."
I wish I could up-vote you more than once!
Re: Another demo...
Yes but what is scary about this is all the techno-illiterates who reckon that self-driving cars will be here shortly when its obvious the sensor technology just isn't up to scratch yet.
Or a very strong bungee cord
Tax is paid on PROFIT not revenue.
That said, creative accounting still makes sure that no profits are generated by the business.
Whats with the sudden rash of articles about ServiceNow? Are they paying for plugs?
Its going to be a clusterfuck now that the politicians have got involved...
Nothing new in that - its called a bloody rules engine albiet with some statistical weighting. AI it definitely isn't. Not new, RIghtNow were doing it 10 years ago before Oracle bought it and fucked it all up.
I was thinking exactly the same thing - she must have very little work to do at the moment except for doodling and "blue sky thinking"... who pays her salary?

Yes we killed it several times but its loot table was rubbish :)
It was a humungous beaver/wolf cross and had an annoying habit of teleporting large chunks of the 'raid' into the lake. That zone was one of my favourites.
I was on the US Galahad server, playing a Minstrel called Kallisti - you may have seen some of my maps from back then...
I remember hunting the Legendary Afanc in Llyn Barfog back in the old days of Dark Age of Camelot :)

Calling it AI is a bit premature but calling it "automated algorithmical processing of data" is a bit clumsy.
Surely this should be about being able to understand (and possibly challenge if required) decisions made by automated algorithms where the decision making process is obscured... "The computer says No" sort of thing...
Re: Now it can be told...
Swapping the left and right mouse buttons on unattended PCs is also worth a laugh

Depends on the compliment... "Nice tits!" or "i really liked that new method you added to the model"

Simples, don't let it connect to iTunes - I think my first gen iPad is still running IOS5 - the version before they dumped Google Maps. Battery life is shit though...
If there aren't enough good roads in Papua New Guinea build more fucking roads rather than give Silicon Valley twats more scope to fuck up another country's economy.
1) The moment the Sun passes from the Earth's Northern Hemisphere to the South and vice versa
2) A sadly missed science documentary program that used to be on Channel4
3) An album by Jean Michell Jarre
Re: What about Gill the ARM ?
JP wasn't a writer of what became known as 'Known Space', that was all Niven's writing (until the shared universe Man-Kzin Wars stuff).
RIP Jerry, some great books that are still on my shelves... will have to revisit them this evening
Loved that program but of course it got sacrificed in the downward spiral of increasingly banal "science" documentaries that now require some sort of celebrity standing overlooking the Serengeti while wittering about Black Holes and saying "Brilliant" a lot.

or the old prank about sending the apprentice to the stores for a 'Long Stand'...
They can take their driverless cars and stick them where the sun don't shine*
*Please insert the shit-hole town of your choice at this point.
Which is just more bloody work that I'd rather avoid having to do when I can use a chip and pin card that doesn't leak my hard-earned cash to anyone with a scanner

That is not much of a compliment!
Re: Lightbulb moment?
A human brain?
Will it fail the same way as the Tim Curry version which was excellent until the fucking awful monster was revealed at the end at which point everyone burst out laughing but NOT because it was a funny clown?
Re: So it's basically...
Still not quite right it should be
"All your face are belong us"
Even easier it to take a mirror from the bathroom medicine cabinet and wrap it in paper but cut a circular hole in the paper. You can than hold the mirror (or attach it to a stand of some sort if you are a lazy sod) and reflect an image of the sun onto an appropriate surface.

ENCODING a message is a much more secure mechanism for communications than ENCRYPTING!
What a wise and sensible solution! I'd forgotten about bubble and squeak...
Tomato has no place in a Full English - its a fruit for god sakes!!!! Or is it a vegetable? Who cares to be honest - there is a time and place for tomato and that is NOT my Full English!

Am I reading the Daily Mash? Does Simon WIlliams have an opinion on this?

'Talent' is a catch-all term for those who appear in front of the camera or microphone...
Re: What's interesting
Or he wasn't actually employed by the BBC but by the production company that made Top Gear. These are only the salaries of people directly contracted to the BBC so all those like Chris Evans or Graham Norton who have TV production companies as well as BC contracts are paid even more.
That said, so fucking what!
