>"Oh, it WAS unbiased once,"
@Big John, luckily political bias doesn't affect scientific results.

Useful comment, thanks.
I still don't understand why I need another currency. If they simply pay me in bitcoin, I'd probably use their browser. As it is, they can take a running jump.
>"The research team also used gravitational lensing ..."
This paragraph makes it sound like GL is a neat tool an astronomer can pull out of his box for better results.
The reality is that an astronomer cannot simply move massive galactic clusters around, and GL is likely the ONLY reason that this galaxy was observable at all.
Check your science, El Reg.
Please use the correct collective noun for boffins. 'baffle'. e.g The baffle of boffins ...
He obviously had a net connected PC, hence steam and halflife (a not inconsiderable download on a shit connection), so I wonder if the malware had a role in fingering him.
>"But you can buy an iPhone 5SE for £349."
True, but it is a gimped piece of garbage, which Apple will obsolete after a couple of months of ownership.
>"Thanks withheld. They did enough damage when they were running the country."
Oh and the tories have done so much better on the economy in the last seven years? Wake up!
>"AWS took a large loss on this?"
Nope, they simply have economy of scale and don't pay any tax. Not even to Uncle Sam.
HRMC, a tax-payer funded government department for the purposes of collecting tax, is paying a tax-dodging foreign company for their IT needs over a British one, who have been pushed into bankruptcy. Welcome to Tory Britain.
> "Microsoft also like copies of any files that crash any of their software, along with the memory dumps."
They must have a lot of copies of their own software sent back to themselves then.
both apple and their customers stick their fingers in their ears and scream 'LA LA LA, CANT HEAR YOU' whenever anyone mentions security issues with their kit.
I can't see how the kit makers in China could be arsed with this, and don't expect regulation to fix this. Theresa May and the Brexiteers are happily burning those books.
>"Too bad. There are rules, and there are consequences for breaking those rules."
I was under the impression that in space, since you are at least going to be 200 miles from any national soil that maritime law applies.
I'm not sure it says diddly squat about what you can smoke.
Why did I read this as 'fast guffs of solar wind'? ...
What's now to differentiate between Ubuntu and Fedora, which works very nicely with weyland?
>"Its likely to screw-up and bork games".
Games dev's wont be too hasty jumping on-board with this particular feature. Who wants more Microsoft lock-in?
I was working in a PC build shop around the time these were in general availability. We had to RMA sooo many of them because they were unreliable garbage. The contemporary 3.5" models were way better.

I'm betting the new one ends in an obvious cliff hanger.

I'm willing to wager she has tried this.
>"Price has been set at £69.99/$69.99/€79.99"
So there it is, dollar/pound parity. Thanks Tories.
When it breaks, because of the large amount of abstraction involved, it can be very difficult to diagnose the issue or get help.
That said, I'm sold, and will be advocating it to others. It solves a lot of time-consuming problems.
> "Real men use wget."
Look at you with your dandy tool. Engineers browse with curl.
> "a thousand quid on a phone"
I could buy a car for that price. A fast car which would probably last 5 years if not 10.
I know where I'd rather spend the dosh.
> "reads your face and works even if you grow a beard, wears glasses, or otherwise alter your appearance."
Or, unless they have fixed it, someone else holds a photo of you in front of the lens.
Hmm, a shower you say? I think I lost one of those in my beard in the 1980's
You know it's garbage when the whitepaper makes less sense than amanfrommars
Well if it is an alien communication beacon or propulsion system, they've fucked up. I imagine they have cooked themselves with it quite nicely, along with everything else in their galaxy.
That's the kind of engineering screw up that would make both captain Picard and his number one facepalm.
> "/me points out that this is why warm soda/beer goes flat, but cold soda/beer retains its fizz."
And I'd like to point out that proper beer is served at room temperature and never has any of that gassy crap in it in the first place.
I have the regular XPS13 (which cant flip over). Great laptop, but also has a very difficult-to-open hinge.
You'll have more luck prizing open clams and mussels. To be fair that is just about it's only fault.
Indeed. Always enjoy flying on 747s, it always feels like an occasion. I've yet to try the airbus A380, but the modern 777s flying now are a little dull by comparison.
I don't get why it needs to be aesthetically pleasing at all. Marketing I suspect.
The instant a compromise is made for aesthetics over safety would make it a spacesuit I wouldn't want to touch with someone elses.
Also I thought there was a reason for the gap between lanes. It's to stop moving metal objects from colliding with unpleasant consequences.
I can't imagine what will happen when you fill a gap between moving metal objects with more moving metal objects.
Kind of curious why it has ROB painted on it?
Is he the glaswegian graffiti artist who snuck on board or what?
The definition of 'collateral damage' in the american english dictionary is 'that stuff that needs sweeping under the carpet'
> "I suspect most ..."
Given that your suspicion does not represent any measurable data at all, you wont mind if we feel free to roundly reject your hypotheses completely, will you? Possibly with added ridicule?
There's a good chap.
and it's decent. but the fact you can't push jobs into the background is a deal breaker and I still need to use a fedora virtual machine for some serious dev work.
Pity the output is grammatically incorrect.
I see what you did there, very clever
>"Public Key encryption exists and will never cease to exist - but we have elected idiots who continually exhibit their stupidity."
I'm pretty sure at least one smart person advising the home office knows this, but they don't care and want the power anyway.
>"And yet I still encounter websites that refuse to display anything unless I install Adobe Flash first!"
Suggest you stay away from those clown porn sites, no good can come of it.
.. and I can only begin to imagine the horrors lurking within.

I hate to be a pedant but your spelling needs to be corrected. You spelled misgovernment wrong.
> "time for a revisit me thinks."
It absolutely is. I have a Ryzen and it is great. Better yet, I didn't have to give any money to intel (direcly anyway).
Indeed. Intel have been optimising their business for maximum shareholder value recently, screwing their customers and stalling innovation and investment.
I can't imagine Intel's share price going anywhere but down from here.
Yes it has systemd and yes, it's corporate sponsored, but fedora just works, and works well, especially for developer boxes.
You really can churn it out and f*#k off early for a pint with fedora.
It stinks, its dirty, the fumes are toxic and the dust carcinogenic. The sooner we get this shit out of our cities, the better.
Prime Minister Corbyn will sort all this nonsense out. ;)
The 'F' designated processors with a UPI socket on the processor package are particularly interesting.
