This one will run and run.
GIFCAT, GIFGAT, dah dah dah dah duh duh. I sense an animated logo approaching.
"All the sites were back up and running on Monday after IT staff had earned themselves a tasty chunk of overtime."
I just noticed that. I'm not saying anything; I'm just saying.
.... they weren't all in the CC field of a single email. Were they?
"... preparing a new law that would allow authorities to decipher and read private encrypted messages."
So, this would enable them to read the encrypted attachments that real terrorists and criminals send, or the encrypted contents of any usb sticks, etc. that they manage to obtain.
"It's also coated with a little bit of built-in water resistance."
Just a splash of water resistance?
.... what that large component with the adjustment knob is? (I thought it was a lab bench gas tap at first. It's many years since I saw one or used one but the memories came flooding back.)
After you've put it into modem mode, you use 192.168.100.1 for the control panel.
They've only just started getting excited at all the things that could go wrong, and the possible consequences.
I assume that the round was supersonic for most of its path, otherwise the sound of the shot (direct path) wouldn't have taken almost the same time as the 'hit' via a parabolic path.
She started in June last year and has been absent since May this year and they are keeping quiet about her. This might mean she had a two year contract and is in delicate negotiations for its early termination. What's that? You never had a two year contract with share options and bonus payments?
Can you change it to show an eclipse over America and not Africa?
See the Conservative manifesto website
The road to hell is paved with "In the national interest".
Apparently, microdosing with LSD is a big thing in Silly Valley and similar places. They say it boosts their creativity and insight. It also makes cats very adventurous.
I read that as 'Verity' and thought it was a Stob special. Oh well, I'll keep on waiting patiently.
The MATE version in Stretch is 1.16.2. The MATE organisation has recently released version 1.18 and this will be available in Mint 18.2, probably before the end of June. I've no idea if Debian will update MATE in Stretch as time goes by.
I've been running Stretch for two months now and had no problems with it after manually migrating from Mint 18.1. The only problem is that in Debian, the MATE panels have a transient cosmetic problem associated with the drawers. This problem does not exist in Mint 18.1 with the same version of MATE. These types of problem have been in MATE for about five years now and the only good thing is that their severity seems to get less as time goes by. Anyway, it's only a little cosmetic thing.
Stretch works fine and I'd recommend trying it, in a VM or a spare hard drive.
They were upgrading to Debian Stretch, the strong and stable release from a conservative distro. (I read the headline and sub-heading and that's usually as far as I get).
"Sadly, our vision of Terminator-style urine-powered killbots menacing humanity or hanging around toilets begging for a drink never came to fruition."
I'm surprised that nobody tried the leased car analogy because ........ I'll stop there.
These are contractors who are paid by the number of hours worked and the 'pay cut' is a reduction of their hourly rate.
"... the rollout of 2FA to “all high-risk users” was ..."
Is that because the users were at risk due to where they worked or were themselves a risk and so the 2FA could be centrally killed if needed?
Not a consccience. They had advice from lawyers, which replaces a corporate conscience nowadays.
"Could you please delete this without opening/reading."
I wonder how many did the decent thing.
Indeed. It's not as if we have a vast land area to cover in the UK.
I'd like to have seen that happen. I wonder if it happened slowly, or quickly.
Perhaps they could send full tankers on a slow, low fuel journey to a Mars orbit to act as refuelling facilities there?
I realise that you get into a diminishing returns situation but if I were on Mars and hoping to get back, I'd be a lot happier if I knew there was a fuel supply in orbit above me. Then again, maybe the first colonists would never expect to return to Earth.
"paranormal parallelogram", "soothsaying square", "cloudy cognitive services"
It's greatly good to see Simon doggedly developing his alliterative aspirations.
I live in the UK but I often like to watch certain types of videos on YouTube made by people who live in a distant country. They brandish high powered rifles and extol the virtues of owning and firing such weaponry, with idealistic glee. I find myself wanting to try this and I'm thinking about travelling to this country to join one of these groups. Will I still be allowed to watch these videos and am I in danger of being put on some kind of watch list or having my passport confiscated?
You make a good point.
"The providers of electronic communications services shall ensure that ..."
Perhaps your local football club newsletter and forum will need to apply for and register an exemption to the rules.
It took just under three years for this to be resolved with the verdict. I don't understand why it took so long.
Ah ..... you haven't heard the news about kale then.
I thought you were going to say, "A puppy dies!!".
Is this because of the language used and its standard source code methodology?
If they're entangled, can they be separated with a big magnet?
Well no. Their skill is breaking into computer systems and 'stealing' other people's data. It's a vital skill nowadays and that's why everybody is doing it.
I agree, those are two activities you should _never_ combine.
"Any moderately accomplished black-or-white-hat is probably schooled in Googling peoples' online profile to get a shot at guessing stuff like mother's maiden name, childhood pet cat or dog, ..."
Are there actually people who spaff this sort of information out for everyone to read?
Does it have a big black dorsal fin?
"The £147 "fee" is payable by anyone who uses a TV to watch live news as it is broadcast, or who uses a tablet or desktop computer to stream it over the internet via BBC iPlayer."
I thought it was for all BBC broadcast output, not just news, if viewed live? It's three years since I had a TV licence so I may be behind the times.
"The carriers also want to increase the maximum height of building-mounted antennas from three to five metres above a building's envelope."
A fibreglass fake turret (or whatever) could be used to house the antennae. It would require some thought and some money though so it probably wouldn't happen.
If they're free to run cables across bridges etc., you just know that they'll do it in the neatest, tidiest and most careful way possible.
I've been needing this for a few years.
.... , we were never embarassed by toilet functions or noises. We used to have contests to see who could make the highest splash mark on the wall. Any noises were a source of pride and boasting and strenuous effort to do better. Why are kids nowadays so delicate?
How did they do that? I'm sure I have a Hub 2 but I wasn't aware of it. Should I have been? It was some time last month that my internet connection started being slow and flaky. I fixed that by powering the hub down for a minute then turning it back on again.
Please tell us your theories about expansion of the universe, etc.
"... two trillion particles to form 25 billion galaxies."
Is that 80 particles per galaxy? A small number but maybe it's enough for a simulation.
I'll raise a glass to Sir Guinness but I think you're paraphrasing Sir Alec.
Twenty dyes and it can monitor a change in brightness of each one. Make a conservative assumption that it can resolve four levels of brightness change, i.e. two bits. That's forty bits of data which is 2^40 unique possible results.
The technique seems to have great possibilities for identification of various liquids.
Also known as the Lucifer Release.
"Tim Fallon's Liberal Democrats have ruled out forming a coalition again, presumably because the party got its fingers burnt the last time."
Also, Labour will remember how the Liberals gave them the runaround when holding coalition talks with both them and the Conservatives the last time.
