Sellafield gull cull mulled

Chernobyl

Judging by the size of seagulls in Aberdeen, I can only assume they are descendents of those in Sellafield.

@Iawndart: having been to chernobyl, I can confirm there is no need to worry about mutated gulls, or any other form of bird life there! The cooling ponds though are home to some rather large fish. I didnt notice any with three eyes, however.

support for other devices?

This could be a massive seller if support for other devices is added.

Right now developers are forced to either pick a platform to develop for, or re-write their app in various languages depending on which platform is being targeted. If support for iPhone, Android and Nokia can also be added to MonoDevelop then it could be a big hit - write the code once in MonoDevelop, and have it automatically recompiled for all platforms.

suddenly that $400 looks like a good deal, although no doubt only enterprise edition will support that.

Open Source Store?

Wherever microsoft & apple tread, linux is never far behind.

I wonder how an Open Source shop would work?

@DRendar - glad I am not the only one who gets annoyed by that. It seems to be an American thing, and is becoming more and more common :S

WTF?

What was the reg?

Sadly Aeroflot do not operate 767-300's, they only have 767-300ERs (11 in service at present). Do you by any chance know the registration of the aircraft involved in this incident?

I hope to see more accurate reporting of aircraft type, along with registration of the aircraft involved, in all future news stories.
