I hate it
...until you said "Jim Carey as Murdock" and "John Travolta as Hannibal". Now if only we could convince the studios to drop the middle east fascination and hire those guys it would be ok. And up the cheesiness.

In it Moller was touting the virtues of personal flying saucers again and there was the same 20-year-old grainy film of a 10 second flight. Strangely enough not a mention was made of SEC's ruling nor of the fuel problems.
Alien because I also have a grainy hand held film of a flying saucer that no one believes.
Hoorah for Double Dekkers. Well said that man!
Boo for fixed width, it's several steps backwards. As screen resolutions INCREASE you decide to DECREASE the area used!?
Icons are a disappointment but at least there could be a case for simplification unlike the decision for fixed width.
"This should serve as a dire warning to all: be extremely careful what you trust, and question everything that looks even remotely suspicious. For example, no website can run an anti-malware scan on your computer simply by your visiting the site. Any site that purports to do so is almost certainly run by criminal gangs."
Trandmicro's Housecall can. Although technically it does ask you to authorise a plugin first, be it ActiveX or Java.
"to be honest she should get more [...] plus they have no idea how much cash had gone over a longer amount of time... how many other people has she done this to?"
And think how many red lights she might have run while illegally speeding at 31mph! All those times she has littered and never been proven for it. She might have let her dog foul the walkways too! If she hasn't got a dog then she clearly has and is lying about it. Lying! Now she's a terror suspect and needs to be held without charge for 42 days. SHE MIGHT BE A MURDERER!!!
However in the real world we usually look for something called evidence before making accusations (government excluded of course).
Still not as high performing as an orion drive and in space (NOT in our atmosphere) the radiation is not so different from solar winds at a reasonable distance. If you're going to be having nuclear reactions in space this converting-to-electricity plasma drive isn't that efficient.

"Remember when the entire dictionary would fit on a floppy or two?"
I don't even remember when it would take two. One floppy was enough for several languages, the editor, it's help file and installer, all compressed naturally. 56MB??? It had better come with a video showing the pronunciation of each and every word for that much.
@Stefan. If 70MB uncompresses to 800MB (11 to 1 is about right for plain text compressed) then what must this single update of 56MB be?
Black 'copter because it's very very clearly another rootkit/ET-phone-home/trojan thing. Yes it's a trojan, you're asked to trust it when it contains more than it says it does.
Native parsing does exist by means of eval() which is insecure, it allows for injection of functions into the retrieved object. A correct JSON parser ignores those and only presents the static values from numbers, strings and arrays. In the web 2.0 world of mashups and aggregations a (cough, spit) web developer must sometimes use untrusted sources for his data.
3rd party parsers exist but that is yet another script to link to the page. Aren't you fed up of waiting for 30+ .js files AFTER the page has seemingly loaded? I'm looking at you facebook!
All this encryption stuff is too complicated, I would fill the files with random gibberish then demand my ransom. When they pay up just laugh and run away with the money. It's so much easier when you don't have to be honest as it's not like you're expecting repeat business.

Would "Iraq 1" be the original in the Iraq trilogy? I heard it was a box office smash but Iraq 2 wasn't as popular. Iraq 3 will probably be dire, shortsighted and cheaply manufactured but have a cute chick in a lead role.
It makes sense... I often see laptops used by a speaker at a presentation, he pops it on the pedestal and plugs in a projector that's already in the conference room/lecture theatre. This way the diminutive laptop can power a higher resolution image. It doesn't matter if the audience can't tell the definition at their distance, it still sounds like a good idea.
"The solar power so derived would be beamed back to earth where it would do hot things and so make the planet hot again."
The reduction in fossil fuels would mean lowering the carbon impact while neatly sidestepping nuclear waste.
However it is costly to put solar panels up there and cheaper to put them down here, perhaps cover an unused desert or two, which would then have the same carbon reduction effect.
A quick and dirty survey of ebay shows the following faulty drives up for offers:
Fujitsu - 0%
Hitachi - 1.4%
HP/Compaq - 0%
IBM - 3.0%
Maxtor - 0.5%
Quantum - 3.8%
Samsung - 0%
Seagate - 0.6%
Toshiba - 3.4%
WD - 0.4%
This creates three very curious questions. Why have Western Digital and Maxtor got the worst reputations? Who sells faulty drives? Who buys faulty drives?
"Pretty much everyone who writes driver software is present on the list but after Intel, the percentages very rapidly tail off to below one percentage point."
1% of all vista crashes is still more than I would like to count.
Were the network/copying slowdowns logged as crashes? This is one of the most widely reported bugs, entirely microsoft's fault and likely is excluded from those stats.
"She is now denying me any hot-love until I get it fixed. Looks like I'll be spending the bank holiday weekend locked away in my home office trying to get clean up this mess."
I assume you mean the mess of the laptop, not any sort of love substitution normally done behind locked doors!
Not only will filling the tank heat it up but the expanding exhaust will be very very cold. This is essentially a lightweight alternative to aircon. For heating there is the burner mentioned in the article or regenerative braking which will compress gas in the engine cylinders creating heat a la 1st law of thermodynamics.
When I 'phoned to get a migration code Tiscali offered me the moon on a stick to convince me to stay. They offered me an upgrade which would be useless on my ageing and corroded phone line. They offered a reduction in price when really they should be charging more. They offered a router I already had. They offered me bundled weekend calls, and then offered peak time calls. They finally asked what I would like and I said no more packet shaping and carbon neutrality please, they said they couldn't offer me that so finally let me have a MAC. Ha!
