Not really Dan Dare territory.
More like Warren Ellis' "Ministry of Space" - It even has a suitable variation on the RAF Roundel for them to use.

I think "shitegeist" just became my word of the week! Have a --->
"Making a call is a tedious process, requiring opening the clamshell to dial the number."
What happened to "OK Google - Call Fred!"
You shouldn't need to avoid Manchester. Most of it was filmed in Birmingham (Jewellry Quarter & under Spaghetti Junction).
I suspect that when this is released to own, many people will go through it frame-by-frame, to see just how many pop culture references Spielberg managed to squeeze in.
You are correct. The Alex North composed score wasn't released until 1993.
"Why was the launch stream curtailed at 2nd stage shutdown by NOAA?"
And by "66% of their resellers prices", Eek means Nvidia are selling them for the actual MSRP - the price the cards are SUPPOSED to be!
It's when they immediately reserve the domain you just checked for availability on their site, so you can't buy from anyone else.
So, you're saying the samples were taken using already moldy swabs?
On the other hand, that would be the PERFECT alibi for an actual serial killer!
I was saving that for the next reboot of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers".
For several years now, I've looked at the Drake Equation with the thought that it's based on a false premise:-
What if we are the "Galactic Elders" that we've been looking for all this time?
I mean, somebody has to be first to arrive at the party!
Not Heinlein, Harlan Ellison.
So I can file under NOPE!
Further to this, Oculus have announced that anyone who used their Rift after Feb 1st will receive $15 (or local equivalent) Oculus store credit.
"They can fall with style, but I'm not putting any bets on them getting 10 points for the landing!"
Depends on what style of fencing (if any) surrounds the building.
Nice try - Pity "It's Not Unusual" is a Tom Jones track...
Nah. Just revoke his citizenship, so he has to spend the rest of his life living in an airport.
Why do I get the feeling that a Venn diagram of locations covered by all these FTTH ISPs would result in a single circle?
"Thanks! That makes sense. I probably suffer from EMIS - early morning illiteracy syndrome."
Nah. You're just undercaffeinated.
"I reckon once a year I need a car that'll do >100 miles in a day."
From what I've read elsewhere, if you buy their Leaf EV, Nissan will loan you a petrol or diesel car for up to 14 days total in the first 3 years.
All you have to pay is insurance & fuel costs.
Of course SK Hynix'2 full-year operating profit rose by 260%. DDR4 retail prices rose by that much!
When I update Firefox, I always disable Pocket, as it's a "feature" I. WILL. NEVER. USE!
Your father is the late James "Scotty" Doohan?
It seems that every time Gnome releases an update, at least one feature or setting that everybody uses has been removed for "reasons".
This is why I switched to Kubuntu (Ubuntu with KDE) when they announced the switch.
PrEscribed - Drugs recommended by a doctor
PrOscribed - Forbidden by law.
I'm not talking about storage, the chips I mean are used to make RAM for PCs.
SRAM != NVRAM
I just wish they'd return capacity to making desktop DDR4 memory chips, and end the massive rise (2-300%!) in prices (at least until I upgrade my PC)
It's even possible to make your phone automatically switch to Android Auto (car mode) when it sees the car radio's bluetooth.
(at least it is on my Nexus 6P)
"More likely Alex Jones STARTED it, rather than parroted it."
The technical term for this is apparently "gaslighting"
I hear Alex "Infowar" Jones parroted this claptrap verbatim this morning
Yesterday,, I reported Donnie's "Bring back the death penalty" tweet as "Threatening harm to others".
Maybe this "departing employee" received that report & acted on it?
Maybe they weren't "departing" until their manager found out?
You _do_ know that Mint is based on Ubuntu, which itself is based on Debian?
Debian "Buster" (the current testing build) & "Sid" (the bleeding edge build) both now default to Wayland, leaving X11 as a backup alternative (for now!)
As the old saying goes:-
"Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely".
" Other times, you could choose to watch an ad and get in game rewards. What I'd do is hit the watch ad button, turn the phone face down and then a minute later I'd rinse and repeat. Got a lot of rewards and watched not a single ad."
The current Futurama game does this, I use the same method as you
Agreed. I even saw NEW games for C64 at Gamescom this year!
Sadly, not mine. I saw it on Twitter this morning.
In other news, who is Stan Lee going to be mistaken for in the next Avengers movie, now that Hef is gone?
I guess he's going to Miss October...
This was the solution for my line too. (Part of the "Superfast Cymru" initiative).
Apparently, the regulations actually prohibit installing fibre equipment inside the exchange!
You're thinking of the next consultant hired to complete the project after this one was carted off.
Thanks for the reminder. I've just done the same.
There's an even simpler answer when using a phone as satnav.
These days, many car stereos have bluetooth to play music from your phone, act as a speakerphone when you get a call, etc.
Android lets you add the stereo's bluetooth net as a "trusted zone", where it will auto-unlock & stay awake while connected. Especially with a specific car-friendly mode like Android Auto.
Apple likely has similar functions.
Surely, that's the 2,345,590,234,575,985,845,792,349,572nd sign of the Apocalypse!
They used to be "Norton Antivirus"
