There should be a law against quoting "Up to.." without also quoting "Down to..."
Is that: "(If I had a penny for) the number of times they were 6 months behind...." ?
Um ,a downvote? For this??
Presumably by someone whose neighbours won't miss him/her?
But second law trumps third law, no?
Online name polls are done, forever.
Like the nuclear deterrent, it is the threat that it *could* be equipped with aircraft that will deter enemy aggression ...
And forgetful? Same plot and cast as previously: Baddies have death star, goodies fly in an bomb death star.
Why change a winning formula?
But why picture Trump Hotel on Central Park West rather than Trump Tower on 5th Ave, a few blocks away? Laziness? Or because it is across the road from Time Warner Center?
Companies mentioned above: Microsoft, Microsoft :)
Gavin, "Britain" does not have a team, it has three; the UK has four, the British Isles has five. I think you are referring to "England". Wales did better. Scotland didn't.
Has research been done on what effect a drone strike would have on a commercial aircraft?
Contemporary J-20 stealth fighters. I bet they'd be on time and on budget, too.
Sounds like nobody here thinks that baked-in hardware security and signed updates is in the least bit useful for improving the state of things?
The alleged crime took place in the UK. The UK is equipped to prosecute this kind of offence. Where is the justification for rendition?
You don't know me or anything about me, and are therefore not entitled to have an opinion of me.
As you say, "f*ck off".
I would contend that playing a harmless game which all of a family can enjoy while getting some fresh air and exercise is a rather better use of time and money than sitting in front of the googlebox getting pissed.
"That was about 1500BCE though, and this is 200BC so it's unlikely the device is Minoan/Atlantean in origin."
No, the author stated that this was the first century before Christ. I assume the last century before Christ was about 2100 to 2000 years ago, but the first century before Christ must have been a lot longer ago than even your 1500BCE, right?
MP600. I fudged it (for printing, at least) with some effort, but not before being browbeaten by a certain domestic user for having "chosen" to accept the unwanted OS "upgrade", when she then couldn't print or scan anything. Interestingly, I see the MP600 support page on Canon's uk website now seems to offer win10 32- & 64-bit drivers.
Maybe I should check again and see whether the stupid machine now recognizes my Galaxy S5 too? Maybe too much to ask.
By not supporting any printer driver for my Canon printer.
Saddest of all?
... 9 times out of 10
um, no. Don't.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - DNA
Is that 12 Feb 2025 or 25 Feb 2012?
Not entirely inaccurate though:
"ARM Evaluation System
As one of the first production RISC processors, the ARM Evaluation System was part of the development programme leading to the Acorn Archimedes and its early Arthur operating system. It was not branded "BBC", but it is physically contained within the family's "cheese wedge" case. The ARM 1 processor was clocked at 8 MHz, and was fitted with 2 MB or 4 MB of RAM.
In 2006 a new ARM processor board using an ARM7TDMI processor was designed and sold, without an enclosure but able to fit within the original case."
RSS Potent Voyager
Yes, in Firefox. IE worked ok.
Shouldn't they be more concerned about the behavior of his son?
More importantly, that's -
"During the QUARTER the company('s licensees) shifted four billion ARM-based chips"
The goal is a worthy one, and you won't solve the problems by not trying ... so "props" to them.
Wow, that's news!
"... of government guidelines."
In honour of the late Sir Pterry, and as the final(?) element, I'll propose: 118 Octarinium.
Just having a read-through on my Kindle after not reading them for 20+ years. Have an uppy!
Am I the only one who read this story and thought... "Total Perspective Vortex"?
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
And so much to appreciate from the commentards.
Dark Side - that's Floyd, as mentioned. It's "Far Side". Larson.
Shouldn't this day be in 2016 for those who can round?
"who prefer their science to feature in new and improved shampoos" - Awesome!
...permissions does this App request?
@AC - did you notice there's a "Tips & Corrections" button at the bottom of each article?

Liquid Fluoride Thoruim Salt tech? (The "safe" nuclear option...)
Surely those "furrin" characters are *only* ever created by copy/paste from a preceding article containing them? Oh, wait...
... everyone here thinks this is motivated by pure science and the inspiration of a nation? Nobody thinks this is motivated by military aspirations, unlike the US / Russian / Chinese / Nork space programs?
A bit curious why El Reg hadn't warned me off installing the upgrade in the first place. Did I miss the article?
