Year of the Rooster.
But it will take me weeks to remember not to write Monkey on all my checks.
I had a similar boss. He loved to use Outlook to find times when the group was available to call frequent, last minute meetings. Simple solution: We all just went into our calendars and blocked out entire days for weeks in advance with "Working" entries.
Best fortune cookie I'd like to see after a Chinese meal: "That wasn't chicken"
Looks pretty bad to me. Better block that book from my kids' PCs pending a $20 fee.
A reference to the nearby AVN Adult Entertainment Expo?
Which is to build a prosecutable case against the suspect. Not to play James Bond or George Smiley.
Libratus' CPU fan kicks into high speed when he gets a good hand.
... will not be televised.
"welding spinning knives to the wheels"
But that's pretty much what a combine harvester is.
Passenger airlines are no place for jokes.
For breast implants. Just give me the badge and the van and I'll stop by to do the follow-ups.
"It's just a bar code scanner, ma'am. It just looks like a camera."
Paris, because aren't you the third inspector this week?
It's not that. A lot of pudgy, bearded guys are going to have to doff their red suits and tasseled caps and report in to their day jobs after a hard night's work should anything go wrong with this release.
Given the tone of urgency of the rest of the Devlan e-mail, I'd have followed through with the instructions. Perhaps questioned the use of the word "legitimate" and maybe replied to verify his concerns.
Maybe they need a PANIC! emoticon.
Using that phrase within the artwork might be protected by the 'fair use' doctrine. It's possible that HBO objected to the use of that phrase as the file name when it was uploaded. It would then appear in a search along with their branded merchandise. So, change the name and put it back up.
... exactly what “Harold” meant by "The 2IC is having none of that argument". He provided an estimate along with identifying some possible risks. And the #2 boss is saying "No"? Does he have some insight into the process and a more streamlined approach? Or is he one of these supervisors that just think the IT department throws a handful of faerie dust at the servers and its 'job done'.
Having worked in some heavily audited lines of business, this sounds like a request to 'just get it done, but hide the expenditures' which can get even a CEO canned. Or at least the business banned from government contracts. Now I understand that not everyone must answer to this high a level of accountability. But Harold should take whatever steps are needed, through official channels, to request budget for and set up charge lines to track this activity. That might be enough to stop 2IC in his tracks.
"if the public has been using the land for access to public property unfettered,"
In some cases, property owners will allow access across their property for all but one day per year. This allows them to maintain control and prevent a public access easement from being created by adverse possession.
Because 'Dalek' was already taken? And these drones aren't slowed down by a curb.
I have a copy of the Chemical Engineer's Handbook by Perry which describes things like producing nitroglycerin on an industrial scale.
ATF, please! Not my dog!
Leave it to Microsoft. The first product they introduce that doesn't suck is a vacuum cleaner.
I need to organize my hard drive.
Some pedestrians already do this in Seattle. Mainly, the hobos.
"There is a solution"
The solution is to ring the alarm bell after a couple of tries. Basically embarrass the a[censored]hole who holds up the elevator.
With self-driving cars, the algorithm could be modified to stop the car but blow the horn for egregious cases of jay-walking.
Listen, this old system of yours could be on fire and I couldn't even turn on the kitchen tap without filling out a 27b/6.

It's getting so I can't afford to pay the carbon taxes to burn them anymore.
They just passed Proposition 64: Legal recreational weed.
Initiative? I don't think so.
It's Puppets all the way down.
Big deal. That sort of expenditure regularly falls behind the filing cabinets at some of the outfits (private business) that I've worked for. Call me when they buy $250 million of automated test gear, put it o a shelf somewhere and then sell it off for surplus, unopened.
"IoT manufacturers are probably just copying the sshd.conf file from the developer's desktop"
And copying the same private/public key pair from the install image as well. I doubt there are too many IoT vendors that have gone through the trouble to run ssh-keygen on each unit shipped.
"You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!"
... is going to sue over the misappropriation of their UI design methodology.
"Is El Reg considered Social Media?"
As opposed to antisocial media?
... don't leave it in your pocket when you toss your trousers in your Samsung washing machine.
I doubt anyone from ULA would risk it. There is too much instrumentation (audio, video, Doppler radar, etc.) on that site to assume one could get away with taking such a shot and not be noticed.
"I'd guess 10st (ish) wouldn't be light for a female pilot"
But who's going to tell her? That's worth combat pay right there.
"(2) After extinguishing the fire, douse the device with water or other non-alcoholic liquids"
Save the booze for the frayed nerves.
"in China. ...... Try squeezing a 6ft 6in bdy"
Yes. But keep in mind: How Long is a Chinaman.
(Answer: Yes, he is.)
Particularly in Florida. So charging a Li-ion battey in one is just asking for thermal runaway.
That sort of undermines the whole EU market idea. Break Europe up into a bunch of borders with their associated protectionist tariffs and the whole thing falls apart.
Some in the USA would love that. Reduce a potential competitor into a bunch of bickering foes and we are on top of the heap again.
The USA already has a very favorable corporate tax structure. In spite of that advertised 35% rate, there are enough deductions, credits and loopholes to easily cut that into the single digits. If your accountants can't figure out how to get tax down to a couple of percent, fire them.
Also, the USA is one of the biggest tax havens in the world. Want to shelter some assets, bring them over here, set up a corporation in Delaware or Texas and they will be hidden from the rest of the world.
I think what has the US Congress panties' in a bunch is the cash parked overseas. Bring it back under a tax amnesty and things can be arranged to pay little more than Ireland's take. But the fear was that this money would never come back. Instead, it would be used by Apple to finance ventures in the EU or other parts of the world. And that just won't do. The money is most probably going to be spent within the jurisdiction that it sat in. And politicians needed to get it back inside the USA.
Well then. I suppose I owe my wife a debt of gratitude.
Paris because was that a complement?
for two guys named Maverick and Goose.
Oh, the humanity!
Only members of the Inner Party can turn their telescreens off.
... us tea drinkers who don't like milk?
Brew the tea in a teapot with loose leaves in a tea ball. Leave the condiments on the side and let people add to taste. Or we'll throw your tea in Boston Harbor. Again.
Could someone please explain this "regular sex" thing?
"Yes you are subject to IR35. Arrange to pay all that money to us or go to jail."
And thank you for entering that identifying information. We'll be in touch*.
