The universe is complicated!
Does anyone know why Kepler-90a isn't used for the first planet?
I'm sure he did 'say' that. How you spell it in writing depends on which language you use, English or American.
Mr. Mouse is definitely in charge and very much hands-on.
Farmers start applying camouflage patterns to the roofs of the new barns they built in a convenient hollow in their land.
Is there any kind of historical 'misrouting analysis' which gives a list of these types of events and the locations that data was misrouted through? It would be interesting to see the misrouting events organised by country of 'wrongful route'. e.g. How many misroutings went through the USA or UK?
"... the establishment of a base on the Moon ..."
Will the first one be called Moonbase Alpha?
I worked my way through the poorly expressed, spelled and 'grammared' posts to find this gem:
"I think there is a difference between compensating artists for their work, which is obviously a good thing, and allowing them to keep our culture hostage. At a certain point art becomes bigger than the artist."
Oh my, that is weird.
Beaverton: Is it safe to make jokes about the town's name?
("... doing math without a license ..." - wonderful :) )
I thought they were both dead.
The satellite view for my area hasn't been updated for three years. I know this because a car I once borrowed (three years ago) can be seen on the driveway.
I, I love among the creatures of the night .......etc.
"In an effort to make objects more chatty, ..."
"... decorate their knockers this festivus."
Pics, or ..... please?
“I think Viagra must have got into the water supply."
.... and why is he facing charges for it?
According to a TV drama/documentary that I once saw, something very special will happen to Voyager.
These 'corporations' have a legal corporate presence in Europe and operate in Europe. They trade in Europe, engage in corporate activity and make a profit in Europe. I thought that European law would apply to anyone who did that.
VAT is not paid by the company, it is paid by the end customer. The company just acts as a tax collector and forwards the VAT collected to the government.
Should have used a virtual machine.
On my way out .....
If you were a private Bitcoin investor/speculator and you cashed in all or part of your wallet, would the money be taxed as capital gains or some other form of taxation?
Is there an equivalence comparison with any kind of real world asset holding? etc?
"You just give a certain amount a month – the minimum is €2 – and that then is distributed to sites that accept payments based on how much time you spend there."
Is this anonymised in any way? Can it be?
Netflix have shown stranger things so I suppose you're in with a chance.
I tried to Google the universe but had all sorts of problems with the gravitational constant.
The Linux Mint version update process is very smooth and fast. From 17.3 to 18.1 and throughout the 18.n series. They are to be congratulated on making a very user friendly distribution.
As for Timeshift, I prefer to use GpartedLive to make a clone of my root and home partitions which I can archive (at the back of the drawer) and restore from if needed. (Personal data is stored on a separate partition.) It's a brutally simple method and it's worked for me for over four years now. All you need is a spare hard drive. A cheap usb-SATA adapter cable will let you plug an SSD drive into a laptop usb socket so that's all good too.
Have your mind-state stored in Amazon AWS then ...... oh, ....wait.
Also, the article doesn't have any numeric characters in it.
I wish they'd call it CREWS (Coherent Radiation Emission Weapons System).
"Weirdly, the dog's owner didn't respond; ..."
But did the dog let you know that it understood your clumsiness and that you were forgiven? (They can do that.)
They are now on scihub.org. I am leet Googler :)
They can put them on The Pirate Bay. It's still out there.
I'm in the UK with Virgin Media and not using a VPN but my router is set to use 220.127.116.11 (Google's DNS) by default.
Edit: I just tried it with 18.104.22.168 (VM's default DNS) and I get the same result.
I just Googled "True telecom fines" and it has lots of links to articles about them being fined £85k or £300K. So, what's happening? Maybe my internet is slow.
"... the first round is titled "The Hogwarts Express"..."
Is that where you take a run at a brick wall as fast as you can? Ah, it's similar.
.... see what they want to see.
I think this code has met its Waterloo. It was nice of the author to take a chance on it though.
This would give simulated gravity at each end, in the hollowed out living quarters.
Can't you do the same thing with a small, cheap mobile phone?
What is the 'logic' behind needing a licence from the CAA in order to take aerial photos and then sell them? Are the CAA afraid that the skies will become full of planes and drones taking pictures for commercial purposes if this licence was not required?
Are you sure it was the Kremlin. Identity is a tricky thing nowadays.
Why would someone working at this level of 'software nastiness' install cracked/pirated MS Office software on their computer?
He always pays me with Bitcoins. You have to ask for them.
It's how they pronounce 'go for' in Belgium.
I remember docking at a space station in the Ross 128 system. It was a long time ago though.
I backed up my .mozilla profile and ran the 57.0 version as a stand-alone application. My AdBlock Plus, Flash and Video Download and the Download Helper extensions were still there but everything else is marked as 'legacy' and has been disabled.
I mostly use Palemoon nowadays and only keep Firefox (ESR) because it runs a free Zenmate VPN extension, but Opera has a free VPN if I need that.
How would it be if he wrote out a statement and pinned it to a notice board just inside the White House gates? This would of course be photographed and posted for the world to see.
"We follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)."
I thought that card payments on a website are dealt with by links to a third party 'approved' payments operator. Have I misunderstood this?
