Since the other Time Lords in the series HAVE actually changed gender, and there have been female timelords in shows, its seems anachronistic that the Dr hasn't been female yet. Assuming that the probability of changing gender is 50:50 (I suspect it isn't, it seems likely there is less chance of a change than remaining the same)), the chance of 12 in a row being male is only 2^12, so 4096:1.
Having to add "It's a joke" to a comment or statement, reminds me of people who have to add "I'm not a racist but" to the start of whatever they are going to say.
It generally means exactly the opposite.
Or at least, if you have to explain that something is a joke, it's really not that funny.
You could indeed get a 5lt V8 Mustang, but wtf would you? it would cost a bloody fortune to run, and the handling is agricultural. So basically a bit shit as commuter car.
Looking forward to the model 3, waiting for early teething troubles to be fixed, and the queue to die down a bit! And need to save up some cash.
I think the choice here is:
1) Do I want to live my entire life emotionally and sexually unfulfilled
2) Or not.
I'd suggest that sometimes, that even if you have a choice, there may only be one sane option.
It's there for Gay pride! Saturday 24 June to Sunday 9 July 2017. So, yes, it's a supportive message, and one that is appreciated by educators I have been reliably informed.
The artist is sitting a few tables down, I'll let him know you rang. BTW, I seriously doubt your daughter could do any better than a professional illustrator, but feel free to send some of her artwork in so we can do the comparison.
Because its funny and IT related?
Is it two women? I thought one of them was Shaggy from Scooby Doo.
But apparently not...
Same here, been a customer for years, used online since it started. Used it this morning.
Never had any trouble, including this morning, although I did get the warning message.
And as for not telling El Reg about the detail's, why should they? It's always been their policy not to say anything, and it could well be a commercial secret.
I use Linux for everything.
What John said. Learn how it works before commenting.
After all, Linux is the worlds most common kernel (as the underpining kernel for android) , I guess they must have got something right.
Had my first kernel driver bug fix accepted for, I think, this release!
Surprised that no-one has commented that this is simply a publication of the talk he did a year ago, so nothing new in it.
As for other points...
The Moon requires more Dv than going to Mars, so is actually harder to get to (and by get to I mean land on) and get back from.
This isn't fraud as some conspiracy theorist said above - Musk is currently revolutionising the Space launch business, and his company is almost certainly going to have something on Mars within 10 years. Might even be ITS, but will certainly be a Red Dragon.
Everything complained about above has been discussed ad nauseam elsewhere already. And in fact Musk is planning a new talk within a few months to go over version 2 of the plan.
As someone who digs around in the Linux kernel to try and fix stuff, access to the source code is of benefit to very few people, despite the proclamations by many. The code is so complex you cannot really do much with it unless you spend a lot of time on it. And few people have that time.
Maybe wind and solar ARE net polluters (I still remain to be convinced), but they are still better than the alternatives.
Moronic comment from someone with more money than sense. For $5k a month I'd use Android, naked (Certain limitations apply, like walking outside primary schools)
Hadn't heard the Apple rumour - I spend some lunchtimes watching the construction from the building next door! From another fruit based company.
Odd, all they are doing is MOVING offices from the already existing offices in Castle Park. They will be getting a few more staff I suspect, a few people are leaving... Raspberry Pi is in the same area, as are Microsoft. Parking/driving is impossible/crap, so I come in by train which actually turns out cheaper anyway. Impossible to actually buy any decent property in Cambridge unless you earn £150k, and even Amazon salaries don't hit those giddy heights for most softies.
As Steve Todd says, Apple have an architecture licence, so they can design their own silicon that runs ARM stuff. And they do it very well indeed, their memory controllers are strikingly good (or was a couple of years ago), and they can make a huge difference. IIRC they are best in class with very good latency figures.
I am an Android user who won't touch Apple product with a barge pole, but does appreciate good silicon design.
Hmm, 0.5M doesn't buy you an awful lot nowadays.
Just design and injection mould for the case would take most of that.
Those people complaining of non-delivery and where has the money gone has no idea of the cost or timescales required to make something like this. Unfortunately, neither do the makers of the damn things. 0.5M was never going to be enough cash to do this, and the timescales are clearly hopeless.
Seems to be a thing with crowdfunding - lots of people thinking they can do better and cheaper, then finding out is not so easy to take a product to production.
This. I'm an equal opportunities insulter, I don't care what race colour or creed you are, if you are a twat, you are a twat.
(In my opinion, other twats are available)
Are looking at mid air recovery.
But I think BO are landing the first stage like SpaceX with their New Glenn rocket.
Most crowdfunded stuff that involves cases etc are going to run late. The people involved tend to be techies, good on the electronics side (HW and SW) but with no knowledge of packaging it up, And that is EXPENSIVE. You won't get much change out of £100k for tooling for injection moulding (if you do it properly), most people have NO idea of the costs of getting the plastic case for something right. Then add buttons, screens etc, and the fact you need to be able to manufacture on a production line, which is its own can of worms, and things rapidly get very expensive and time consuming indeed.
Er, no. Perhaps it's just that people submitting code haven't actually bother to lean how to submit code.
git is a PITA a lot of the time, but it is the Linux kernel SCCS. So, if you want to submit stuff, learn how to do it. It's not, actually, that difficult, to learn the minimal subset of commands required to do this properly.
Not possible with the current SoCs. Google will explain why.
Interesting idea, but I suspect too much of a PITA to implement!
Because the parts are all purchased in $, this ensures consistency of pricing.
On the other hand, for a limited resource company, you always need to be cautious. The RPF are not Apple or Samsung.
Being engineers hasn't stop the Pi from becoming the UK best ever selling computer, and it's catching up with the Commodore 64 for numbers sold, at over 12M. What it has meant is that you keep getting product that actually works, with actual support.
The ZeroW should be available in larger quantities than the original zero, for reasons you outline.
Er, what? On the order of 0.5M Zero's have been made/sold, and they are available right now from the suppliers. Still only one each though. They are still being made.
Well, if the author was trying to get across a particular point, why did he have to type down something untrue to make it? It's not as if the actual cause hasn't been fairly well publicised.
Most people who have never had to work with the underlying architecture think this, but porting from one android version to another is unbelievably painful. Which equals very expensive. Under the skin Android is a horrible mess, almost incomprehensible to those without years of using it. It changes dramatically from version to version which means experience on one is hardly a help when you need to port your code to the next version.
Of course, maybe as a softie of only 30 years experiences in development I am biased towards code you can actually understand with documentation that makes sense, rather than how shiny it is, but YMMV.
They were not told to take the time AFAIK. They REALLY want to know what went wrong and ensure it doesn't happen again. So they are spending the time. From sources in the know, NASA have been impressed by their due diligence in the matter, and NASA are very difficult to impress. The actual fault was something, and I paraphrase Musk here, that had never been seen before in the history of spaceflight, so I am of the (relatively uninformed opinion) that this particular freaky circumstance was unpredictable within any sane timescale.
For those interested in more information, can I suggest the NasaSpaceflight forum, lots of knowledgable people on there including SpaceX employees.
Have you got any citation for that list of issues, because I have been keeping a pretty close eye on this stuff and nothing in your posts I have seen before. In fact one particular point is I believe incorrect; the redesign for parachutes for non-propulsive landings isn't right since the capsule has parachutes anyway in case the Draco's fail to light up.
edit: except the bit about NASA worrying about putting astronauts on a unfueled rocket then filling it.
Whilst it's fun to have a go, the immediately use case that picture brought to mind was Mummy away on business trip, Daddy at home looking after child, but Mummy wanting to talk to child. A common eogh scenario I expect.
Or is the concept of women working and/or men staying at home babysitting too alien to El reg commentators?
He is sure, but also polite. Presumably English from the phrasing.
I presume you are talking about Bazza's post? Well, the downvotes are, I suspect, because of lot of what he wrote was wrong (not all of it). So he was he one not doing the fact checking, not the downvoters.
The Pi3 is already a quad core A53, full ARMv8-A.
Forgot to mention - bring on the thumbs down! I can take it! It's Xmas remember!
But since it's Christmas, I'd like to say Merry Xmas to all the creationists and evolution non-believers out there.
You are all blinkered morons.*
* Note, I could have listed thousands of pages of evidence why Evolution exists, why the Universe is 13.8B years old etc, but since you won't listen or even bother to do the slightest bit of investigation on the subject (I've actually read Darwin btw; not all of it mind you, it's a bit dry), I'll just stick with morons.
Inclined to agree. My HH4 drivers two laptops, various tablets (some very old), a Amazon Firestick, mobile phones etc over wireless, and also a SS TV and PVR wired direct to router. There's a PS3 wired via a powerline network, and a Wi. There's and a desktop and NAS via another switch.
Don't remember it ever going wrong.
Previous router would not work with the Lenovo laptops wireless system, or was so erratic to be unusable.
On the other hand, I cannot turn on the Humax PVR share feature so I can play back stuff on a different device because it conflicts with the NAS and it's UPNP server (or something). Neither supplier (Humax and Xylel) want to admit the problem is theirs, so nothing get fixed.
Anecdotal, but I tend to drive about the place quite rapidly (not in town/villages), or at least as rapidly as my 02 plate Civic 1.6S will go. BUT, when I was kart racing and then car racing, my speed on the roads dropped considerably. Because I was getting the buzz elsewhere. I suspect video games may have a similar effect in some people.
Now I just watch my boys karting, feel jealous, and drive fast(ish) on the road.
Are vegan's now going to discover that almost every plastic has some animal byproduct in it? Are they going to be stopping using their: Cars, TVs, Mobiles, laptops, shoes, clothes, chairs, guitars, bicycles, airliners, hats. This goes on and on and on.
I've got popcorn - go for it.
I just got the Amazon G4 plus 2GB/16GB, it was £179. I'm pleased with it so far! First Android smartphone - upgrading from a Symbian Nokia 808.....
400-600kbps with latest kit, low power, high range. Also has reserved spectrum worldwide so no issues with finding frequencies, and no interference.
400-600 is good enough for fairly decent video for things like door bells and security cameras, which will always be the biggest bandwidth hog.
I think I speak for many living in rural areas when I tell you to fuck off.
Have you any idea whatsoever of how much industry (including farming which now requires broadband!) happens in rural areas?
No, I suspect not.
You also seem to think that everyone in rural areas live there by choice. Also incorrect for a large number of people.
Premature to claim VG is a failure. If the company goes bust, THEN you can claim it a failure.
But whilst they are still developing and test flying? No, not really.
Never seen a Vulcan do a pass and veer away from crowd with afterburners on then...!!
(Or indeed a Tornado doing a shock and awe pass)
As always, people need to compare Tesla with other car companies, and in that they don't do too badly for a beginner.
I believe the latest Model S now has the record for the fastest accelerating road car (or will once the next SW update comes out). Also, not bad for a beginner. (0-60mph 2.3s)
