Now, if we only had a single national ID system...
...to make FACT self-financing?
...as a ticking column of angry black smoke?
Is a patch system that patches blogs so they make sense.
...to welcome the unmasking of our here-among-us-all-the-time supertasking overlords.
...they should have called this the "Large Headline Collider". Why can't they just wait until after the experiment and tell us all about it in tomorrow's edition - if there is one.
You expect me to increase page click-through by using attractive user-selectable cascading style sheets while maintaining accessability and reducing server load?
No, Mr Bond, I expect you to die!
Will "Bulgarian airbags" now be joined by "Lithuanian truncheon"?
I don't think the 100 quid glasses are "polarised" like the cinema glasses. They're active shutter glasses, which go opaque/clear in synchrony with the TV, which shows each eyes image alternately, unlike the cinema system where each image is show simultaneously. That's why you have to buy a transmitter as well as the glasses!
This is expensive kit and you don't want to be the early adopter who chooses unwisely...
But then I simply poked out one eye, and now it doesn't matter anymore.
1) Her driver buying a new car
2) Her driver buying a new house
3) Her driver hiring a hitman?
And I'm afraid Naomi is English, from London's fashionable St. Reatham's district.
Well, I suppose if it wobbles like a duck, and farts like a duck...
...like an old oak table.
Sorry, couldn't work "Klaatu barada nikto" into it. (Apologies for the spelling, there's no glark accent on this keyboard)
my speedometer display read "You don't have to drive a Renault - other manufacturers are available."
Still not quite sure how you can use the concept of "commercial competiton" between products which are given away.
It's like the Big Brother house, only smaller.
Although the picture isn't.
How will I ev Oh look! A squirrel!
Perhaps that's the point. Maybe he reported the laptop stolen, they turned on the camera and saw him in his own room.
Bring back Dr Who!
Oh. They did.
BRING BACK BLAKE'S 7!
....and they got rid of Dr Who.
<Wemmbley-Hogg>Brilliant. Just brilliant.</Wemmbley-Hogg>
I can get that nifty egg-based cooling system for my PC? Then I shall laugh at the other nerds with their old-fashioned water-based cooling systems.
I ran out of materials while laying a new path. I didn't need the minimum quatity my local builders yard would deliver, but I wondered if someone would have some left over from thier job, so I googled for "free hardcore".
Imagine my surprise...
In the time he wasted ogling that poor young woman, he could have lost billions on the mortgages markets.
Oh, hang on....
Could we all contribute to a subscription to some site which would keep these guys occupied during market ours?
...that the team was late for the press conference when they announced this!
Why do I have a mental picture of a tumble dryer divided into 36 red and black segments?
...that it woul dhav ebeen better if they had used real aliens, and CGI'ed the scriptwriters.
She kept asking him if he was expecting a rise soon...
...sounds so bad I almost want to rent it to see if it really can be that dreadful. It's the cinematic equivalent of rubber-necking a car crash.
...mouse trap you!
Can I suggest someone pop over to Dr DePalma's house and see if he get's power from the local electricity company - and enquire why...
I can see why it soesn't work. I've been to Homebase, B&Q and every electrical trade supply house in town, and I can't find million amp fuses in stock anywhere.
...or (especially as it starts to rotate) does it look worryingly like the things Ed Straker used to deploy SHADO interceptors to shoot down?
As soon as someone said "The passport has an RFID tag", this article could have been written.
Surely if you actually want to track someone (someone who you can get within 20 inches to read their tag in the first place) it'dd be far easier to plant your own RFID tag rather than rely on them carrying their passport.
Is anyone else hearing the words "I need your cloze, bootz, unt motorzykle"?
Can I eat them? Can I break their wings with one blow of my arm? Do they not even make those boxes of matches?
"And WTF is the medical purpose of a 'retinal scan van'?"
Mostly checking for diabetic retinopathy, plus a few other things. Put the kit in a van and several hospitals/clinics can share it, rather than bringing people to the big hospital just to do something Spec Savers could do.
Mr X presented to clinic for investigation of constipation. After the incident, he left without being seen, muttering "Doesn't matter anymore".
Who done this renderin' for yer? Buncha cowboys, I reckon, see they ain't even done specular highlighin' cos it means they can save on the resource drains and I'm sure that gamma ain't safe. Tell you what I'll do, me and the lads'll stick a z-buffer under it - should hold until we can get back with a ram. And if you can pay cache...
...it doesn't seem unreasonable that I follow their procedures. I don't have a "right" to visit America, or any other country. Leaving the UK - yes, I think I have right to leave, but no one else is forced to accept me!
The online travel form which confuses me is the check-in, which you can do up to 48(?) hours before the flight.
Did you pack these bags yourself - options Yes/No. Correct answer "I haven't packed yet"
Have these bages been left unattended since you packed them? "I suppose that's a 'No'"
Could anyone have interfered with these bags without your knowledge? "How would I know?"
The fun part is "appropriate". If I fall under a bus and end up in A&E, I'd like them to have access to my records - and obviously I can't arrange that ahead of time. Other NHS services - generally, we know who's coming and can gain permission. But once you're "in the system" granularity of access is a nightmare. If you're admitted to my hospital with a chest infection, your lab results go into the general system. Can the surgeons see your results? Yes - but they usually won't be interested unless you get transferred to their care. We COULD apply tighter restrictions, but generally we don't. The rule is not "You can't" - because we know that never works! - but "You shouldn't - and we're watching." If someone access records inappropriately action should be taken - but IANAL and I don't know if DPA would work here.
However, professional behaviour is not enforced by the law, but by professional bodies. I don't know why the (Scottish equivalent of the) Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute, but I suspect the GMC may still have an interest.
He hasn't necessarily got off, ahem, Scot free.
I'm a Rocket Man!
I find that strangely reassuring!
Why is he not safe for work? Or do I need new glasses?
i.e. ruin them completely?
cn u rsq me?
Now, let's see it repeated. Until then - statistics is a fickle mistress...
"**Assumedly he wanted to video women changing but until he is caught and questioned this might not be the case - he might have really been after men or children."
Or Daleks. You never know.
So he's been sent down for a long stretch?
I just don't understand what happened. We allowed him to scheduled his own release date, but it just kept slipping and slipping. He always had some excuse...
And at 3pm on Xmas Day, none the less.
He probably upset both listeners.
