My first thought when I found 02 was down yesterday was: "funny how this happens on a day when the news is full of cyber warfare". What are the chances that certain parties have latent hacks already in place on all sorts of systems ready to be activated whenever it suits them? How would/could we know?
Interestingly, thesaurus.com doesn't have "slave" as an antonym of "master" but does have "slave driver" as a synonym.
The whole thing is horribly anglo-centric anyway, and clearly no device should be the slave of another.
Is there any language that has a short, snappy word for a person that is put in charge of an enterprise by their peers and another short, snappy word for the persons that put her in charge and voluntarily do her bidding? Has a culture ever existed that needed such words?
"A good starting point is understanding the Observable Universe."
And that's supposed to help? viz:
"However, due to Hubble's law, regions sufficiently distant from the Earth are expanding away from it faster than the speed of light (special relativity prevents nearby objects in the same local region from moving faster than the speed of light with respect to each other, but there is no such constraint for distant objects when the space between them is expanding; see uses of the proper distance for a discussion) and furthermore the expansion rate appears to be accelerating due to dark energy."
I've been struggling with this kind of cosmic stuff for decades. See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shape_of_the_universe
It's all inside your head, and my head, and his head and her head. Boggle
In actual fact, the EPO has got nothing to do with the UPC* and the Batistelli story, entertaining and simultaneously depressing as it is, is completely irrelevant to the German holdup.
*The EPO will grant the patents that will be litigated in the UPC but it has NOTHING AT ALL to do with the UPC itself.
Second that re the Highland Wildlife Park. Feeding time for the tigers involves hanging hunks of meat from the trees, well worth seeing. Once when we were there we had to lock ourselves in our cars because a wolf had escaped from its enclosure, which was awesome. And the snow monkeys are soooo adorable.
