Also known as a pair of curtains...
"Why state that something is a fact when it clearly isn't?"
It worked for Donald Trump.
Thunderf00t (strange name, strange man) did two videos. One about Hyperloop and another about the so-called hover board. The Cincinnati students seem to used the same tech as the hover board judging by the noise it makes.
Can you imagine what it would be like if the landing and battle scenes in Saving Private Ryan were in VR?
Now that I *would* pay to see.
"a cunning way to recycle the displays for some sort of wall screen"
They could be recycled as a smoke screen presumably.
When the word "congratulations" doesn't seem adequate.
"the utility companies are rolling out smart metres which don't work in not-spot."
Once we're out of the EU can we go back to using smart yards?
And none of them in my name.
So how would they know if I was telling the truth? Would they force me to login / post to each of them to prove it...?
Where's their credit card number displayed?
It was indeed the Compulink Information eXchange.
I still have a copy of Ameol and the (printed) manual somewhere.
I'm reading, Tweeting and re-Tweeting about the TransContinental race that's currently going on.
Given that this tool will likely created a reasonably-relevant Tweet which presumably would send me to a compromised page how the hell am I supposed to protect myself against this?
>A country may be able to threaten a user, but then the (innocent) user
>has the option of handing the government their previous conversations
No! That is why this is a BAD THING.
By that logic anyone who doesn't had over their messages is automatically guilty of whatever crime they were alleged to have committed.
Will be extremely handy (if it works) for creating heat maps for our intranet.
I need handy information to try to convince people not to fill their team/project pages with crap and put the useful information in a sensible position on the page.
If it works...
Does any know if the new balloon will make the ISS any brighter than it's maximum magnitude of minus three-and-a-bit?
''Users might say they don't like the "algorithmic timeline," but only two per cent could work out how to opt out and return to a strictly chronological timeline''
I f*cking hate the "algorithmic timeline" - it completely defeats the point of Twitter IMO. I have opted out but I'm convinced that what I now see is not simply my timeline. Tweets from accounts I follow do not always appear :(
The problem is there's currently no viable alternative to Twitter.
Never heard of her before.
"at least a 10 year journey"
Yep. It'll take 'em that long to get back to the level of IT competancy they had with their in-house staff...
"And for how many years have you known about that situation and done nothing to mitigate it?"
Seems like forever my old chum. And no matter how many times we've pointed out the need for comprehensive rewrites the money's never been there.
Of course! Just install another browser, why *didn't* we think of that? I mean what could possibly go wrong?
The fact that many of our line-of-business legacy applications then cease to work is neither here nor there.
We're only just(!) completing the roll-out of IE9 & Win7 here. Very little prospect of upgrading to a more modern browser anytime soon :-(
On the plus side at least I no longer have to support IE6 :-)
It's not just Twitter and Facebook.
You could include a whole host of other sites and services not least those little known things like Office 365, YouTube and Google+
Depending on what they choose to class as Social Media you could include most of the internet...
"Do FB think that we were born yesterday?"
Facebook knows exactly how old you are. And your friends and your children...
...then next week (Sunday 16th Aug) there's the 1,200km Paris Brest Paris ride.
Don't think I can get a Vulture Velo shirt in time tho.
"it will have a very limited period of time to take the close up images that scientists are lusting after."
And the people. The people are lusting after photos of Pluto too!
Go little probe, go!
>I suppose it depends upon how you define 'Catastrophic failure'
How about "loss of the vehicle"? Seems a pretty straightforward definition...
Under 20 launches? No, there were 32 Saturn launches.
Facts. Please check them before posting.
"there has never been a rocket system that hasn't had a catastrophic failure at one time or another"
Except the Saturn series of rockets never had a catastrophic failure.
NB: individual stages failing during ground testing does not count as "catastrophic", ok?
"and a nod to the people behind many of them such as Barry Cryer."
And for goodness sake do not forget Eric Sykes. Massive contributions to (other people's) comedy for 40 years.
"Too many to choose from. Barker was brilliant but there was also Tommy Handley, Max Miller, Spike Milligan, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Morecambe and Wise, Peter Cook, etc."
Spike Milligan, the greatest British comedian of all time? I don't think so.
He was Irish.
550 hp is peanuts.
One of my favourite facts is that the fuel pump for the F1 rocket engine (which powered the Saturn V) was 50,000 horse power. But then it did have to pump *three* *tons* of propellant per second. And there were five F1 engines in the first stage don't forget...
Be still, my heart, indeed.
>Cars don't see you
Although a recumbent is a lot lower than an upright bike it is far more visible! Recumbents are such an unusual sight that motor vehicles take much more notice. When riding mine (and I've ridden tens of thousands of kilometers on mine) I can hear vehicles slow down much more as the driver goes "WTF"...
However I wouldn't commute on one in *heavy* traffic but that's for other reasons.
How the heck does an ordinary person like me check if a router is vulnerable to this?
Or does my home wi-fi router not actually count as this sort of router???
Yes, we have one here.
And I'm relieved this ActiveX blocking malarky only affects IE8+ otherwise it would interfere with all our lovely IE6s and IE7s running on XP. Which is our standard platform. Still.
> Anecdotally, a great many XP machines reside in developing nations:
And here we still have 10,000 XP desktops (and 3,000 IE6s for god's sake) and we're NOT in a developing nation.
The IT triumph that is the "PC refresh program" has just been put back. Again.
I haven't watched Dr Who since the days of John Pertwee but Capaldi is such a great actor I'm planning on watching the new series.
I can't beleive I'm going to watch it again after nearly 40 years!
...and so's my wife!
I still have my copy of the first edition of David Ahl's book. It's how I learned to program back in the 70s. Which probably accounts for my er... peculiar coding style to this day :-)
The console looked amazing - two circular oscillosope thingies.
Impressed me loads at the time. But then I was only a nipper.
Can't believe no-one's mentioned PFE.
And where's Galaxian?
Clearly you've never heard of lenses.
"iOS is a lot less configurable. That's the price you pay for flexibility."
Not configurable = inflexible.
Surely those big web firms already make huge profits. Maybe they should think about paying some tax for a change.
"We believe that any changes to the UK’s copyright framework should be industry-led"
That's like saying changes to MP's pay and conditions should be MP-led.
...thin end of the wedge.
"...suggested that dominant market players could not make "unilateral and nonessential" changes to contractual terms if consumers have "no option other than to accept the change or abandon an online resource in which they have invested significant time"
Surely no-one uses Internet Explorer 6 or 7 these days. Surely!
Ah... except the company which *I* work for still does.
Armadillo aerospace have been doing rocket VTOL for years.
Barking mad not to include more audio formats.
"operating profit of £32m on turnover of £16.3m"
Now that is impressive!
