RED means, its already dead. So no need to audit it, so not on the list.

Hey, remember that monkey selfie copyright drama a few years ago? Get this – It's just hit the US appeals courts
Re: Devil's Advocate
Being unaware is no defence in law.
Re: Devil's Advocate
"The driver of the car ... does not make a decision to activate it"
The whole point of them is that the driver _does_ make a decision that causes it to activate.
Re: Explanation point?
Is there any possibility that this is one of those crimes that are actually perpetrated more often by women, or is that too simple an explanation?
Talking of peculiar; a segment of a pipe is just a pipe, shirley ?
What makes JS painful is reading through code written by people who think Java / PHP / C is the only right way to work.
Learn it _properly_ and its lovely to work with.
And to answer an earlier comment, the time spent chasing that one bug due to _not_ doing type-checking is more than offset by all the time saved from not having to fix bugs due to unnecessary type-check failures.
"Finite" and "Infinite" improbability engines, actually.
Re: Ewoks.f@$!$ Ewoks
DS9 deliberately left off?
Re: Creative license
Common sense suggests that it was actually a 15mm (OD) copper pipe, but a little fluid dynamics tells you that after even a fairly short run, no pipe will ever 'gush'.
Re: Shrinks are useless or crazy
How could he have anything in his pocket if he was naked????
Re: Ok, so I read Ms Yeoh's blog post
And a minor corollary: don't invite a bunch of idiots to your own home, ESPECIALLY if you have to work with them afterwards.
I wish I was earning enough for such a short period on the Emergency tax code to leave me £6000 short!
Seems like some very deep meaning being gleaned from a very grainy image - but presumably these conclusions are based on much more than we've been shown/told?
Re: yeah, i'm not quite ready
Just like a human driver, I would expect a self-driving car to anticipate this.
But then, I'm not clear on what _you_ would do under those circumstances - do you normally drive too fast to be able to stop?
Re: yeah, i'm not quite ready
Any self-driving car _should_ be driving within the limits of the road conditions, so there is no need for any ethical decisions.
Re: Mobile Phones
The point is that you are not supposed to use _ANY_ radio transmitter in close proximity to a petrol pump.
Re: Catches up with https everywhere memo
To what advantage?? Were you worried that someone might intercept your commentard login credentials and use them to login to your bank?
Re: Google Earth image
Copyright _should_ be the year of first publishing, unless there is a major amendment.
Using any American source for spelling/grammar/science is a bit unreliable, shirlye?
Re: a sufficiently motivated person could in fact find out exactly how I voted.
And how would "a single private individual of average means" get their hands on an entire set of ballot papers? (And also on the ballot records, which are probably stored entirely separately once the polls close.)They are rather well guarded at all times, and even for a national election, they are run by local councils, not by central gov.
Re: They still call it Autopilot?
I'm also amazed to learn from this that the car didn't know it had crashed, though not entirely clear on why it _ever_ came to a halt - presumably the sensor suite must have been damaged too badly for it to navigate properly, but again, surely that should have triggered an immediate halt?
'And why the fuck are England and Scotland running identical concurrent projects to do the same thing?'
Because everyone knew from the start that the Government IT project being run in England would be a giant failure. (Admittedly the wrong conclusion was drawn from that known fact)
Re: Hmmmn.. pizza!
Talking of towers, I don't see the point of sending an empty ship back from Mars to Earth. They would be very useful as 'starter homes' on Mars, and/or would give the new residents a way to leave Mars if everything went tits-up there - after all the odds of an asteroid hitting our backup facility is just as great as it hitting our primary.
Re: Things that are foolproof:
I'm not quite so sure about Gravity...
"You have someone 200K approving paperclip spending."
Giving a budget of £20 only works if you then sack the person earning 200K - in this case that doesn't seem likely.
Re: Ho hum
" Find some bullet proof filesystem"
Find that and you can retire from IT...
I thought it was the Pay Point logo until I checked - theirs is a _little_ different, but since they are in the same industry...
Re: The letter is positively Kafkaesque
"It's not a nice letter."
It's not _meant_ to be a nice letter. It's meant to be a letter that gets the Judge off Uber's back, and (as ever with Uber) not the slightest regard for what that means for anyone else.
Re: Training only, maybe?
One of the main philosophies at the moment is belt-and-braces - whether it be a component failure or a situation failure (eg low sun blinding a camera, or dense fog) most people seem to be using multiple types of system to provide redundancy.
To be fair, this entire story is about pictures with a clear copyright watermark visible on them...
As has been pointed out, that may not be the full story, but certainly a red-flag to any reasonable person.
Re: Battery life from the 35000mAh pack
Isn't it about time we dispensed with the 'milli' designation for something with this many zeroes?
3.5Ah is surely more correct? (and less easy to mis-type)
Re: Appealing to the individual voter?
"Principled" doesn't really cancel out "stupid".
Re: ANd yet
"What more do you want MS to actually do here? Keep releasing security patches for XP until the end of time?"
If that was a legal requirement we might see an increase in software quality going forward...
Re: Security Specialists hacked by securitty guard
Does anyone else see the irony in an employee of a security company getting caught out in this way?
Not really being stingy, this is just "constructive dismissal" at its best.
Re: Unidentified foreign law enforcement agency?
The article identified them as FLA 1
That probably stands for Four Letter Acronym
In the USA the CIA and FBI are both TLA's but the UK (for example) has gone one better with GCHQ
(Other agencies _are_ available, as the usual caveat goes.)
I don't understand - I thought that genuine lawyers acted for most Patent Trolls anyway?
Re: Actual impact & securing a network against this...
Personally, I think that anything important needs "Belt and Braces", so if MS say "Its ok unless X" I get worried, won't be happy unless there are at least two reasons why this isn't a real threat.
Re: Of calories and flying cars
Turning the heating down in the winter will inevitably result in hypothermia, thereby terminating all weight loss.
I do hate the advice that says you can save money by turning your thermostat down by just one degree - mine is set at 0.9 deg Kelvin - how much money will I save if I turn it down one degree?
But, if Armstrong says he didn't hand out anything, then presumably this stuff wasn't real, in which case selling it is fine (although slightly fraudulent...)
Re: This goes to show one thing
But will May get the two-thirds majority in parliament that is needed to pull off this move?
Re: I wonder if the militarised versions ever fired there weapons?
Actually, a tube-bound weapon along the lines of a bazooka will pull you forwards, due to the friction on the tube, but a typical fighter plane will drop its missile a moment _before_ the missile fires.
Re: Just a matter of timing
A99 - I didn't realise they actually made paper that small! (Must be thicker than it is wide.)
Or spend that little extra on a decent lawyer, and get your contracts written in the Company's favour.
And an HR person with enough backbone to tell you how to fire someone properly.
Would it have been too hard to mention that the Argon is at approx 88 degrees in proper SI units?
Incidentally, does anyone know why, and is there any relation to 'Back to the future' style time travel?
Re: side on impact
I would really like to know if the Uber software is aware of Blue Lights? If this had been an emergency vehicle turning across, would the Uber have given way as it should?
Re: Yeah, that's going to happen
Wait till they realise how much tax there is on Alcohol ...
Yes, some, like me, use Facebook to advertise/manage a sporting club.
