I believe he also ad-libbed quite a lot of it - the original script called for a boring long speech that had no impact - so he cut most of it out.
I know this! it's a UNI... sorry. sorry.
Actually, I work with a system that does exactly this: a revsnbens system, live and test instances (how else to you experiment with patches/training/customisation?) and colour changes to the interface for differentiation.
the colour changes are per user so you have to hope the user doesn't get creative and the point of having Live and Test systems is that they should be identical in operation (but maybe not in function) - otherwise you are NOT testing reality.
Also, it's not the function of IT to manage operational staff - the system belongs to them, they understand it better than IT and they set the rules of use - we are just there to clear up the mess when the crash happens.
I feel sad now.
Want to go home.
but at least it's Friday!
Aye we ran a quake server on Friday arvo's
guess who forgot to turn the sound down in the middle of a frag-fest as his boss walked into the office.
I misread Bob Iger's name as Igor and had a Young Frankenstein flashback!
heh heh :)
But you get the medals for tonnage sunk.....
I was on crash guard for a Phantom vs Pawnee smash in the 1970's - can't recall date exactly - 73-74 I think.
Crop sprayers didn't file flight plans in those days...
Is it too late to say.. My God, it's full of stars!
the cashmere one please...
Count Rugen! is that you?
" A gigawatt (one billion watts) of energy" is that nearly 1.21 jigawatts?
just send for the DeLorean!
Medlab - get to Medlab!
you are in the dessert you do not know where you are and you want to get out. You could use dead reckoning to ensure you don't go round in circles and head off in the direction you think a town or road might be.
Dessert - wot, like custard?
I'd want to get out too if I landed in it - not sure about towns -as for the road, yellow brick I presume...
and with a broomstick and a bit of string you could make a bass!
sincere condolences to his family - I always enjoyed what he had to say
Hah! so $Deity was left handed too!
Yay for us downtrodden sinister people - it's about time!
and the 23 people in NK who actually have a tv set will know what they already know.
Can I just say that if anyone feels the need to get rid of their "so last century" wristwatch, I'll take it off their hands - but only if it says Omega on the dial.....
or patek philipe, or Rolex, or....
Given that these companies have had 6 years to patch their SAP estate and failed - what else have they not patched?
Can't believe they said "Oh, SAP is too hard - but we did everything else!"
A 4K space sausage - stirs the imagination :)
Once flew a large military transport simulator into Kai Tak - literally! the sim staff red handled 3&4 on approach (it was late on a Friday and they wanted to go home) and I totalled about 4 blocks of flats
Even though I knew it was a sim it still made me go half-crown sixpence...
A sadly forgotten and reviled explorer, purely 'cos he theorised that Franklin's crew indulged in a bit of long pig - which upset the Victorian sensibility...
If you are at all interested in a (fruitless?) gesture to vote against the TTIP, see this:
So a political alignment then?
birdstrikes do actually cause aircraft accidents - see this for an example:
As a Brit (ex military) I can see the uses for a firearm (hint: to kill) and can also see that the USA has a long history of permitting it's citizens to own and use firearms - it is extremely unlikely that this will change.
It is also very unlikely that some magic technology will come along to stop The Wrong Person (TM) from firing the weapon, but why not do the thing that is possible to do now and force mandatory repeated training for all licensed owners?
OK the criminal element will just laugh and they are uncontrollable anyway but regular refresher training and a once yearly loony check by your local doctor would surely go a long way to making gun ownership a bit safer?
I have a set of bagpipes and that has 3 drones :)
but I'm not paying $15 for the privilege of throwing it in the air
Actually the internet is located in a black box on Jen's desk - here:
I think you hack it with a can opener or something.
I hate that cliche...
cost you 3 dollars?
fair comment - I must admit to not dealing much with IIS or Exchange if i can help it so I bow to collective wisdom..
However, there are still other vendors products that aren't amenable to being configured via a command line - we use some 3rd party web parts for a sharepoint installation that seem to need juju beads, incense and a full moon to get working correctly.. as well as a good understanding of JapanEngrish
maybe my employer is atypical (local government) but quite a few of our windows servers run middleware and client/server stuff that absolutely must have a GUI to allow it to be configured and interrogated.
there is a huge legacy of windows based server-side software that is not in any way command line based - including IIS and Exchange for example.
It's always disappointing to see how stupidity prevails in areas where you don't expect it.
Found myself wondering why a telnet port would be left open in the design of this thing, and then realised that it's been built down to a price - and security costs money.
Ergo, the company that makes these has an eye on costs.
Ergo, their other products will also have the same design ethos.
And so will anyone else in the same market (if they want to compete on price that is).
Unless/until someone important (hah! define that one!!) or maybe a lot of people get severely damaged/worse by this type of design flaw then adding cost (security) into a huge range of small cheap devices will just not happen.
Don't forget a metre of fallopian tube...
Curiously enough quite a few people who use Office for a living would be quite happy if it still looked like it did in 2005 and not get metamorphosed into some childish disaster area every year, just to satisfy the whims of a deranged moron who thinks we all need a new 'compelling experience'
My Z30 is on the latest vodaphone version and seems to be stable now regarding BBS and battery life.
Only problem is the screen cracks too easily when you drop the thing!
"most people would consider 660bhp and 1,650ft/lbs of torque adequate for road use" - I should chuffin' cocoa!!
could you retype that again but USE CAPITALS PLEASE?
it just doesn't look right otherwise...
Oh. you'll need the icon as well...
We need an organisational chart showing the hierarchy at the SPB - including the boffin count!
It's been a long morning so far, not helped by reading The Dilbert Principle on my way to work & concluding I'm doomed...

'fraid it's the daily fail but still worth a watch...
Didn't kids used to use BBC micros and Logo years ago to make a robotic turtle move around the classroom?
An introduction to a sort of BASIC and you got to make it do something cool
Or am I too old? <sigh>
Thought we banned that "word" years ago. Yes, I'm going to be 60 next year. Yes I also want a Victor Meldrew icon. No, I don't want anything made by Fujitsu.
Thank you and goodnight.
mind you - you might just end up with orange fur and very long arms....
Aaargg! my brains is leaked outa my head..
getting in the box with the cat - or not...
look out for the one that looks like Yul Brynner - hell! they all do!!
OK I'm game - and probably completely wrong too!
1. Early Bloodhound?
2. looks like a Thor tip but the body's wrong
3,4,5,6 sharp pointy things that go bang
7. Canberra PR (7 or 9, can't remember)
8. I should know this but can't remember & am going to kick myself when someone tells me!
if you squint in the right way.... No?
the grubby mac please...
will always triumph over youth & exuberance!
someone who gets involved with cunning stunts, sometimes in (on?) a tandem....
