Chinesium; today's episode.
I love the presentation on these videos
Are much better than this lock;
Disused lavatory, locked filing cabinet etc
For added security don't tell anyone which disused lavatory to look in.
For most padlocks a couple of cans of plumber's pipe freezer and a hammer will shatter them, including the super hard security locks.
For the more upmarket thief about town a cordless angle grinder makes a good pass key although it's a little noisy.
Chinesium = AvE A Canadian engineer on You Tube, if you like engineering 'stuff' as opposed to digits, this is the NSFW engineer to watch.
The rudimentary beginnings of my robo-butler?
I'm thinking I may not live long enough to see AI develop sufficiently to do the work of a decent butler.
I think you can add MBAs to that list.
I have yet to meet a freshly minted MBA who a. knows anything useful in a practical sense and b. isn't overly impressed with their shiny degree.
It seems the title; Master of Business Administration, makes them think they are going to go straight out of Uni and into a top manglement job.
Two things, you forgot the Troll icon and you forgot the part about flogging the proles on a Sunday morning before church.
" What's going on? amanfromMars1 made sense to me!"
He always makes at least as much sense as anyone in any of the parties in Parliament, sometimes much more. He doesn't seem to lie either.
I'd vote for him if he stood for election.
Nah! It'll never catch on, loads of metal tokens will ruin the hang of your suit.
It's a million to one chance that anything infectious could come back..............
With the correct aiming method the British can use the 'Bouncing towel' to get their towels across the pool in front of the Germans:-
I'm still waiting for a research physicist looking for his missing socks in the laundry to discover wormhole technology. Hibernation is no good for me , I always wake up in a bad mood.
Count yourself lucky, it could have been in Fahrenheit.
I would have thought Mars being so dry that caking would be unlikely, unless Mars dust has some odd properties.
Shirley the rover is more likely to be sand blasted and very shiny after the storm?
Yeah! But what does Google say about you?
You may be right there.
I only install the updates I want, the rest are ignored.
Looking at the downvotes so far, it would appear there is a shill on the premises.
I am expecting a comment in support of MS's decision to treat bugs in this way at any moment.
It would be interesting in the UK at least to see how often MS's lack of interest in fixing bugs that don't meet their criteria would be considered a lapse of Duty of Care.
From the WiddlyPaedia;
In English tort law, an individual may owe a duty of care to another, to ensure that they do not suffer any unreasonable harm or loss. ... Generally, a duty of care arises where one individual or group undertakes an activity which could reasonably harm another, either physically, mentally, or economically.
Were they 'proven' to be a threat or was it more that they are close to the Chinese Government and have been busting American imposed sanctions?
The US doesn't like anyone whittling down their big stick, that's a No No.
The rest of the bill, as is most of what the US is currently up to, is to improve the US's economic power at everyone else's cost.
This bill, like most of them, is driven by lobbyists, that's why it is including all Chinese telcos.
Well, that had nothing to do with IT or the article subject but definitely worth an upvote.
On the subject of the article, I am increasingly of the opinion that many researchers need a daily slap to wake them up and make them think about the possible consequences of their research.
Fortunately in my house because of condensation problems all the walls are lined with tin foil.
So far I can't find an argument for condensation on my head.
"Hey, how are things going in North Korea?"
아주 잘 !
So, what are the chances Canada would pay for a wall?
Bearing in mind it would be quite long (5,525 mi)
I have yet to see him perform in any way like a Statesman or true politician, I stand by the comment I made in another thread, that he views politics as an extension of the Art of the Deal.
Trumpian politics is the same as JR's South Fork boardroom politics but not as nice.
I wonder if the researchers tried correlating the numbers with alcohol and drug use amongst the same teenagers?
Maybe they're too stoned to go out and nick a car.
Hans. You do know that cricket has nothing to do with sport?
It's an old British weather control system.
Make sure to disable Google assistant as that records all of your voice and audio as well slurping from just about every other app, also Google calendar another large drain hole, Simple calendar is a better app that needs nothing from you.
You have any idea where you are commenting?
In the '70s, I worked for a guy who had a contract fitting heavy electrical switchgear at Windscale, we stayed with one of his friends about twenty miles away from the plant, the friend Bob hated all the animal libbers who used to bother the farmers and the stock auctions around there so he had a teeshirt printed up with a pic of a whale spouting a mushroom cloud and the legend 'Nuke the Whales'. That produced much hilarity with the hairies in the pubs and at the markets, I may do a rerun and get some printed up.
Genesis back when they played good music.
The video played the right track as far as I could tell.
While unlikely to be smart enough to fully understand fuzzy requests, I am sure AI will develop the wherewithal to be able to defenestrate fuzzy managers.
It occurs to me that although automation may not be about to take your job in the near future, it may well run you over with one of it's developmental models.
Eggsactly, it's an eggsasperating attack on freedom of eggspression.
In reality Trump's presidency is just 'The Art of the Deal Pt II'.
The article mention mudstone, so it was mud once but is now a lot less muddy and has dried out.
Courtesy wikipeadia; Mudstone, a type of mudrock, is a fine-grained sedimentary rock whose original constituents were clays or muds. Grain size is up to 0.063 millimetres (0.0025 in) with individual grains too small to be distinguished without a microscope.
Autonomous vehicles will be fine when they work but IMHO at the present autopilot and it's relatives from other companies are on a par to human based drug trials. The drivers are guinea pigs who are part of the process of developing the tech.
I don't think any system that gives a false sense of security can be allowed on the roads because it will end in accidents like this one, a tired driver who like most of us thinks he can pay attention to the road, relax, text or whatever will put his trust in these systems and then sometimes pay the price for his inattention. If the system either was not on or even not installed the accident would probably not have happened.
At the current state of development anyone in control of an autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicle is ultimately responsible for it, if even the testers working for people like Uber and Google are allowing their attention to lapse and subsequently having accidents, then the systems should not be on public roads.
When they work reliably with adequate redundancy, sensory and analytical systems maybe they would be usable.
Though not something I would want, the simplest way to be able to get in a car,give a destination and sit back and relax is to have either a driver or control from a central source that oversees and choreographs all of the vehicles in a given zone and hands over to the control for the next zone when passing into it ( The next horror ' The Internet of Vehicles') .
In large cities and conurbations autonomy doesn't really make sense, it's a vanity.
To some extent governments and authorities are partly to blame in encouraging manufacturers to roll this stuff out early before development is sufficiently advanced.
When I saw the headline I thought this would be about a large fast motorcycle but a probe called Peregrine Falcon is even cooler.
I can only wish this mission total success, it may be ambitious but what a coup if it brings back even more asteroid samples and gets to shoot one.
At least the Wangflap is marginally better than this;
They looked a bit like a bridge to me.
Xeon was great. So was coal.
I was wondering if that was also a slight dig at the Trumpster.
I think Jupiter's atmosphere is large enough that many features are persistent,take the Great Red Spot, a storm that has been observed for nearly two hundred years,with it are many other associated features. I would image what passes for terrain beneath the gaseous layers which I would guess is liquid or frozen gas would affect the atmosphere above enough to produce feature that are related to position. So mapping is probably correct .
Interestingly Naval Group among other things are developing Marine Thermal Incline energy generation, That would seem to go hand in hand with this tech.
They also build a lot of fun Naval things including nuclear subs.

Tai chi might fool the system right up to the point where you give someone a smack in the gob, there is no way you can really disguise that.
All of the 'floaty' stuff is about concentration, contemplation, building muscle memory and strength, stamina and balance.
You could probably get away with some of the joint locks and throws though.
What does that look like?
How often does that happen?
How many drones at 16 metres apart would be needed to keep Londoners safe from kidnapping?
As already mentioned, dancing could easily be mistaken for fighting or even a couple snogging.
I also wonder if in places like Glasgow and London, it can distinguish between a Glasgow kiss and a genuine kiss.
Allow me to make a small adjustment to:
"I'm starting to get the impression that these things simply can't operate all that well in bad weather."
It should read:
I'm starting to get the impression that these things simply can't operate all that well in the air.
I'm sure in reality the aircraft is actually not that bad but the ridiculous cost, the lengthy delivery time for the full number, having them serviced in a third party (decidely dodgy) country and all of the other argy bargy surrounding them, makes it difficult to take them seriously.
If the UK were to go to war on it's own with 15 F35s in the UK who could it beat in terms of airpower?
I can see those selling like hotcakes.
If a company can't be arsed to figure out it's legal obligations to me, it won't get my business.
When the last company I worked for wanted to give everyone a phone with Whatsapp and tracking enabled, I declined. They said 'But we won't know where you are or be able to stay in touch', my response; phone or email me and ask where I am.
Being an outsider was an absolute blessing, I reckon my productivity jumped by a significant margin because manglement were no longer calling me and redirecting me to other tasks when the mood took them, instead I was able to finish most things without interruption.
Pai must be getting a good slice of corporate pie when he finishes his current job.
Indeed, bashing things is the basis for all technology, bashing rocks together gives you sharp edges for cutting and sparks for fire, bashing other animals stops them eating you and gives you food.
Bashing other people gives you whatever they had before you bashed them.
Bashing a keyboard gives you ...........Facebook!
Well, at least no-one can make the majority of politicians say anything less rational, more idiotic or more dangerous than they already do.
Putting Boris the Buffoon in a comic would be quite disturbing for the kiddies.
If Bojo is concerned about saving the animals perhaps he could give the Oranjotang a stiff talking to about lifting the ban on Elephant trophies in the states.
Well, he can doubtless spin a yarn, fiction is an important part of politics but the plot sounds like a Hollywood B movie.
How exactly does a president go under cover?
Or is he talking about blankets?
