Re: Wood floats...
Not all wood has the same density. Dried wood is less dense than freshly-cut wood. Not all wood floats, unlike a duck.

Just guessing... but here's an example. You go on holiday to Spain, and you have a UK and a Spanish SIM in your mobile. Whilst in Spain, you switch the phone to use the Spanish SIM for outgoing calls, but because both SIMs are active, you can receive calls to either your UK and your Spanish numbers, without the need to carry two mobiles. Possibly.
"However, the call forwarding malarkey is tosh. What ofcom need to do it have the number transfered to the control of the new provider. It's not a difficult one."
...however it does make routing tables much smaller if you route, say, all 07973 numbers to Orange and let them handle the distribution of ported subscribers, than for all operators to know which network all UK subscribers were using.

Thankfully Google has a bit more cash and lawyers than the average person - so if Google can successfully argue the case that it's permissable to take photos in public without written consent from everyone in the pictures - that might hopefully stop the overzealous law enforcement officers from assuming the opposite. Maybe.
I'd just like to know their schedule so I can make sure the front lawn's been mowed if they happen to drive by!
...cos at the moment, the vast majority of PCs run Windows.
As for bundling IE with the OS - why not include a choice of 3 or 4 browsers for the end-user to decide on first login, with the listed order and default radio-button selected at 'random'? Maybe the EU should start banning the sale of Windows until MS pull their finger out.
Speaking of 'miserable', that's how they perform on price-comparison websites too. Maybe I'll want to pay 5% more for the convenience of being able to go into a shop and by whatever immediately instead of waiting for home-delivery - but 60% more on a TV is really taking the urine. Clearly people have noticed and are going elsewhere.
Let us all know where your friend lives, and we can start treating his house walls like a toilet.
It's disgusting, it's criminal damage, it's smelly... I bet he didn't wash his hands afterwards either. Quite right to take a copy - next time the police find a patch of pee somewhere, they can (if they so desire) take a swab and run it through their system. If it happens to be your friend again, well, he clearly hasn't learned from the first offence.
A parking offence is generally a civil matter - hence no DNA entry required.
Now there was me thinking that interlaced had the same number of lines as progressive, just half the refresh-rate - first cycle draws in the odd-numbered rows, next one the even-numbered rows. Unless I'm missing something...
Oh, and my lappy screen's only about 6mm. True, it has a box connected to it containing the rest of the useful components, but I'll ignore that for the purpose of statistics...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P6M_SeaMaster - I guess it's been done before...
Course, the noise for the human cargo might be a little excessive - but what's to stop designers moving the passengers below the wings with the luggage hold on top? Or even sticking the wings on the top... maybe just too unconventional for the people with the money to risk.
