that getting your kit off in front of the camera will become the new FaceBook secure login procedure.
Snapping a picture of my balls brings a new meaning to 2 factor authentication.
"Sometimes I go camping and find myself dancing with a dozen women from the neighbouring campfire"
Never really been one for camping (it was probably cub-scout camps that put me off), but you might have sold it to me again!
Will that be the updated version of 'The Two Towers'?
better than the SyFy 2004 version.
Now that would be worth seeing, particularly if they could follow through all the stories.
... and that it knows the exact duration of the pause before the punchline.
"2 people, 1 keyboard"
Is that the sequel to "2 girls, 1 cup" ?
(don't google if it you don't know what that is - specially from work!)
Presumably the AI now thinks that you can zoom in onto a single pixel and read the licence plate from it.
Or you could do without the visuals and the sound, and scan a bunch of Agatha Cristies, Morses, Rebuses, etc.
Come to think of it, University of Edinburgh - they should have used Rebus!
it just highlights the fact that bites can occur if you spend too long annoying your pets.
Probably Slitheen then.
"Why am I thinking about Buffy the vampire slayer"
Now go and have a cold shower.
"Imagine what might be achieved if scientists and engineers ran the country instead of the current clutch of PPE wankers."
We don't have to imagine - remember we had Margaret Thatcher (chemistry).
And in the present cabinet:
David Davis has a molecular science/computer science degree from Warwick.
Liam Fox has a medical degree from Glasgow.
Karen Bradley has a mathematics degree from Imperial College.
Are you sure you want them running the country?
"Much larger than I thought."
That also implies
"Clangers... Much larger than I thought."
Now, that's a scary thought.
It's always gratifying when you can think of a problem in two different ways and the maths works out!
You are right, the 8191 figure is derived from summing the combinations from 1 of 13, 2 of 13 through 13 of 13.
Mechanical combination locks such as these...
actually are true combination locks, rather than permutation locks. You can press the buttons for the combination in any order you want (or all together if you insist) and they will unlock.
(not counting the 'C' button which just clears the mechanism rather than being part of the actual combination).
I was quite disappointed to discover that they were not nearly as secure as I had assumed.
The locks have 0..9XYZ characters, so the security of guessing a 5 character code drops from a 1 in 371293 chance to 1 in 1287.
Also gravity on Mars is a little over twice that of the moon (3.7m/s2 vs 1.6 m/s2), so bone loss and muscle wastage might be less on a Mars base than a Moon base, leading to slightly better long term health for Mars residents than Lunar ones.
We need a proper name for the mean atmospheric pressure at the surface of the red planet.
I suggest it is 1 Mars Bar.
"There is no CGI BtB"
I assume you mean this in the same way as "there were no sequels to The Matrix".
There was a CGIed Bob The Builder spin-off - Ready, Steady, Build!, and a poorly received 2015 CGI series of Bob The Builder on Channel 5 (and now moved to some obscure children's channel).
They could have used Battlestar Galactica language and called it a Big Fracking Rocket, but that wouldn't go down well with environmentalists.
"exceed passenger airline levels of safety" - could be a severity/mitigation issue - there are less mitigation options in space, so reduce the severity/frequency of incidents beyond what is economical for airlines?
Airliners* don't tend to end up millions of miles away from somewhere they can make an emergency landing if something goes wrong.
* Except for RyanAir - they seem to land a million miles away from anywhere you may actually want to get to.
will they now be
Harry Fucking Potter and Bob The Fucking Builder?
(maybe for parents who have been overloaded by these characters, this has always been the case).
When I was at school we had a daisy wheel printer that had a very fast carriage return and depending on the code sent it could slam itself into either the left or right hand end of the travel.
Once we got the right frequency we could walk it, and the table it was on, across the room.
I've not tried the two mice, one computer trick, however I do have two mice on my desk - one to the left of my keyboard (I'm left-handed), which is the one I use for most things, one to the right, which is connect to a Mac that I use for a couple of Mac-only applications. It's always amusing to watch people move the wrong one, and wonder why nothing is happening.
Incidentally, my ex-girlfriend is right handed but uses a mouse left handed - back in the early 90s she was used to using only a keyboard (she had a PCW8256 at home, and her work terminals really were terminals), and when she started using my computer with a mouse, naturally it was on the left side of the keyboard, and that's how she got used to using it.
"Sysadmin is responsible for testing patches before they're rolled out into userland"
And shouldn't Microsoft be responsible for testing patches before they're rolled out into Sysadminland?
on your arse scratching finger.
If only we still had Escher around to design our road junction layouts.
"Addicted to sheep"
Is there a Mutton I'd like to ... section?
Surely the hexagonal honeycomb structure is indicative of bees, and is therefore appropriate signage for Brentford Football Club.
I was going to suggest that it was time the non-barriered level crossing sign (steam engine) and speed camera sign (bellows camera) were updated to something more modern, but then I remembered that the government intends taking us back to the 1950s, so they are entirely appropriate after all.
Hopefully nobody would have fallen for the Flash update in 2017 - apparently (or so a friend of a friend of a friend told me) Pr0nHub switched to HTML5 last year.
They probably have better organisational skills than me.
Aren't they using those on the latest versions of their vacuum cleaners instead of wheels?
Re-opening a committee is hardly an achievement.
Re-establishing manned launch capabilities and lunar activities would be an achievement.
I was thinking more along the lines of 6809 assembly code where it stood for Sign EXtend the A register into the AB register pair, but good to see Motorola wasn't the only company having SEX back then.
"But all my fetishes kept resulting in illegal errors..."
Maybe set your LOCALE to a more permissive country.
When I used to write a lot more assembly code than I do now there was always the challenge of smuttifying 'ORG' directives and 'BRA' and 'SEX' instructions... and that challenge was invariably accepted.
should include penetration testing...
... And does one have to bend over to enter de-bugger mode?
Mines the one with the handcuffs in the pocket ----->
Hasn't Atari been through a bit of a rebirth?
By the time I see a flying car, I'll probably be ready for my OAP bus-pass!
Second Variety became Screamers (1995)
Another one, lesser known I suspect, based on a P K Dick story is Impostor (2001).
The Machine - pity it seems to have disappeared from Netflix
Sleeper - The Orgasmatron.
Barbarella - The Excessive Machine.
Don't forget Knight Rider (TV since 1982) - although I suppose the autonomous vehicles were very limited edition in that, so not exactly ubiquitous - were there ever more than 2?
Not sure if we can include Herbie (films since 1968) - autonomous, but the autonomy doesn't really seem to be created from technology.
The Fifth Element (1997) also had an autopilot mode in the cars - and not just ordinary cars, but flying cars.
But which one?
