Re: up to 1,000 kelvin (726.85 degrees Celsius).
If you say it's 700 degC then someone will complain that it's more like 730 degC, etc.

"He added that police moved on the criminal operation to forestall “retaliatory action” between members accusing each other of snitching to the cops."
They were worried about damage from many bullets flying?
I save £25 a month by not buying a dead tree newspaper every day, as I used to do many years ago. Add in the online magazines I read and it does make my monthly broadband cost seem worth it.
"Next, they warped and twisted the facial features in the images to mimic the eerie effects often seen in deepfake vids."
So, they made a system that detects their own fake deepfake videos. Did they test the final product with real deepfakes?
"... Stuxnet was able to physically destroy uranium subterfuges, ..."
I thought it was the Stuxnet subterfuge that destroyed the uranium centrifuges. Have I misunderstood what happened?
If it took 5 hours it must have been a difficult job with lots of hard work involved, obviously, er ..... as I always told management.
Does anyone remember travelleing wave amplifier tubes? They are called 'travelling wave tube amplifiers' now. I remember noticing the change in the literature and brochures many years ago.
The name of a conference doesn't make the attendees behave in a childish or sexist manner; that behavior is already present in them and will find an outlet or expression somehow, someway, anyway.
I had a mental image of hot air balloons and weather balloons being hijacked and ......... nevermind.
You seem to be making fun of a Chinaman. That is not cool dude.
Put curtains on the windows, a tv antenna on the roof and a number on the door. That should convince them.
"...any malicious attacker (even if they get access to a customer's data) cannot also reach other customers or the provider's control plane,”..."
Is there any possibility that Oracle will use the internet to access their control plane for monitoring/controlling their remote cloud corrals?
"... made burned offerings ..." vs "... burned incense ..."
There is a practical difference but I've no idea if accuracy is important here. That particular difference is probably due to text differences between the two versions and nothing to do with 'style'.
I'd be impressed if it could rewrite an article from El Reg in the style of Revelations, etc.
"... was first announced back in 2008 although it took until 2011 for the first stable release to make an appearance."
Is anyone surprised by this?
There is a difference between 'advertising your opinion' and making 'better, more persuasive arguments'. It's just that some people aren't aware of the difference and so are easily influenced.
"Them as it whizzes through Earth’s atmosphere, bits and pieces of the object break off."
I thought that Earth whizzes through the debris trail it leaves behind, which then wizzes down through the atmosphere.
Everybody hates testers. Developers hate them because they find faults in the developer's baby and managers hate them because they slow down acceptance and release by finding faults. The really 'bad' ones find flaws in the test methodology and make formal reports about it. (I know, I was a software and system tester for many years.)
Here in the UK, I was told, by a roofer, about another roofer who took off and replaced the roof slates of the wrong house. I seems his clients had arranged for it to be done while they were on holiday and it was the holiday season so the owners of the 'wrong house' were also away on holiday.
"However, as his employer, any licensing cash would have headed the government's way."
That's why you get your brother (or similar person) to 'invent' it and then appoint you to the board.
Something made you resonate. What exactly was it? This could be important.
The condensation would form when they took the discs out of the cool safe and exposed them to a relatively warm and damp old office full of people breathing.
Can the downvoters explain why it's a bad/silly/stupid idea?
How about activating the Administrator account (and logging in as Administrator) to remove Edge, etc? Or will it throw a wobbly and reinstall it?
I once had to log in as Administrator to wipe some Wacom tablet drivers that had been borked by a MS update because it wouldn't let me unistall them or delete them while using my normal account.
It's refute vs deny in modern politician speech.
Am I right in assuming this will only work on the Raspberry Pi, even if you did try to install all dependencies? (I had a quick look at the installation script.)
I use QuiteRSS: http://quiterss.org
It has an internal WebKit browser but you can set it to open and use any external browser instead (Palemoon for me). I've been very happy with it for about two years now.
Why did he try a brand new monitor if his own known-to-be-working monitor didn't work when connected?
So called because of how you'd feel if you fell/landed on them.
"... our drivers are mostly of altruistic and hedonistic nature,"
That explains why I can't get it to print properly.
"... when you hold it in your hand it feels like a phone that costs $350,"
Is that a justification for what it can/can't do or a justification for the price?
The expression is '... spunk a few million ..."
Or, about 118 AU while Pluto never gets more than 49 AU away (from the Sun).
However, The Goblin goes out to 2000 AU so where does our solar system end? Does The Goblin go out into 'interstellar space' before coming back again in its orbit?
The reason the newspaper made a copy was in case HAL then denied that it had ever lost the USB stick. That would not be beyond the bounds of possibility or reason.
Also, it would have been useful if HAL then did lose the returned USB stick and asked for a copy for its investigations.

We're always happy, especially when we're picking (black) holes in articles.
It's very confusing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planets_beyond_Neptune#Planet_X
"Not to be confused with the hypothetical planet first proposed in 2014 known as Planet Nine, which is sometimes called Planet X."
With an orbital period of 34,000 years, it goes out to about 2,000 AU at it's furthest distance so the astronomers were lucky to see it. Also, those distant objects tend to have orbital planes that are quite inclined compared to the major planets and so you need to observe a much larger region of the sky to have a chance of seeing them.
There may be (probably are) many more similar objects out there that are just too far away to see or detect at this time, unless we go exploring or make some amazing detection equipment.
"I've never seen so much fuss made about a provision that - by current international standards - is still incredibly mild ..."
Yes, we're not as bad as the worst ones so it must be acceptable.
"The core of ROS is licensed under the standard three-clause BSD license. This is a very permissive open license that allows for reuse in commercial and closed source products."
Stand by for 'embrace, extend and extinguish'.
I still have an old Nokia 6310i (a lovely phone) that I've fitted with a PAYG sim card with £10 on it. I intend to use that phone if I ever have to set up 2FA by text for anything and it will only ever be turned on for that purpose.
(Also it has to be turned on at least every six months to make a call to my landline to keep the SIM card active. I don't have to pickup the landline for that to work. That's a calendar event with an alert to remind me every four months.)
Some years ago, a colleague was developing an application as a user interface to a real time controller/monitor for an industrial process. He ran it overnight (connected to a process simulator box) to make sure it was working and stayed working but it kept throwing up errors the next morning.
Eventually, he figured it out and disconnected the keyboard for his overnight runs. The cleaner was running her duster or cloth over the keyboard.
"Carouso said America is working to take a bigger trade and investment role in this region, but that has been hampered by complex processes and too many private and public sector bodies making PNG difficult to deal with."
That short paragraph gives the impression that it's PNG's fault and PNG's private and public sector bodies complicating things. I assume you mean that the USA's private and public sector bodies are getting in the way?
Here in the UK too, it's callers who pay, not the callee. I was amazed when I read that the callee pays in the USA. It's almost as if the payments system was designed to benefit robocallers and similar organisations and encourage them to make lots of calls.
He had a terrible cramped handwriting style and it actually asks for $45 in bit-coins.
I don't have a Wordpress site or anything associated with that, but I do have a little FTP server appliance at home (with an obscure username and password) that is connected to the internet (port forwarding via my router). Soon after I set it up, the logs were full of login attempts and attempts to access folders that had names associated with Wordpress configuration folder path names.
I tried moving it to an obscure port location like 56823 which stopped the attempted accesses for about a week. Then, some port scanning person found it and tried to log in. After a week, he must have told all his 'friends' because the attempts to get to Wordpress types of folder pathnames started up again.
The majority of IP addresses associated with this behaviour came from China, East asia and Eastern Europe. It may be some kind of hobbyist/cottage industry type thing that I assume sells the details of successful attempts to more 'professional' criminal groups.
If it's connected to the internet, somebody will notice it and try to get into it.
"The statement added that the small number of staff at the remote location made protection difficult."
So, if there had been only one person at the remote location, it would have been very difficult. If there had been no staff there, it would have been impossible to protect them?
"throw it at the wall and see what sticks"
Same for pasta.
Their accountants are brilliant!
They want to put all their attention into assessing the amount of goodwill in the balance sheets.
"We start raising awareness to upper management and tracking possible weather events."
That seems to imply that upper management neded to be made aware of what was happening out in the wider world.
Thank you for a good example of why gender has nothing to do with sex. It's a grammatical thing. The word seems to have been hijacked to mean "How I express my sexuality and how I feel about myself."
