I wouldn't say anything hugely positive about Notes under my own name either
When I were a lad, we went from cc mail to Notes 4 and we were glad of it!
Pretty sure they all will have to soon
Home made rather than home grown suggests auto cannibalism
That pun was so tortured I spent minutes thinking about poutine
I wonder if anyone in the area can think of innovative uses for a quantity of antimatter?
It is very difficult to pitch to a government department or agency. They take ages to decide on anything and procurements run months past the original dates. A company has to be big enough to throw money at their bids and accept when 2/3 fail. They also need to satisfy a lot of due diligence, usually involving delivery on similar sorts of contracts to similar sized public sector bodies. It's a self perpetuating cycle and the usual suspects keep winning the bids but it's incompetence not corruption.
It's political correctness gone mad!
Excellent troll for the union of sets that is Flat Earth Society/Vulture commentards
By that logic, the US should be the most just country in the world, having 1 lawyer to every 1.6 people in prison. New Brunswick must be a veritable police state compared with New York, having only 1/8th the number of lawyers per capita.
I thought England and Wales were leaving the United Kingdom???
Anyone selling blockchain should only be paid in cryptocurrencies
"you essentially need multiple parties who wish to transact with each other who do not currently have a trust relationship with eachother. Getting enough of those people in a room together to work together"
|I need this spelled out, there is only a point to blockchain if people who don't trust each other (or an intermediary) want to do business AND to get them to use blockchain they need to work together to agree on that? Surely if they're in the same room working on the problem, whoever assembled them can act as trusted intermediary?
No, or at least not in a way that would make you pay for it.
As far as I can tell (and I could be wrong) it's a way of packaging data so that it can be verified as uncompromised while allowing you to add records to it, a distributed database relying on good encryption and cross checking multiple sources. I haven't been able to think of any use for it that can't be done more easily another way either.
well, half the expected total, since the government are still hoping a withdrawal agreement will give another 18 months to recruit the remainder. Funding is there to expand the ports and airports customs areas. Why wouldn't the UK get these things sorted before declaring their exit?
*Paris is puzzled too
@Pen-y-gors I'm from the EU and I've already jumped your queue
The customs union 'deep end' governing Northern Ireland can't be changed without EU agreement but the 'shallow end' covering Great Britain can be changed unilaterally, which is what the DUP are worried about.
With the right rates you can bring in contractors from all over Eur... d'Oh!
That's the spirit, Mr AC. Soon you and your fellow South Britons will be driving around in your C5's, knocking up spiffing apps on your Amstrads and laughing at the Scots farmers for wanting to stay in business rather than eat new Zealand lamb like the English. Pretty soon the UK economy will be back to it's condition in the 1970's, with rocketing inflation, sterling in freefall and the IMF bailing it out, like the good old days!
Interesting article but does the Enterprise count as a warship? It looks more like a support vessel? I'm curious rather than critical.
Drone space is reserved for Vietnamese Pot Belly Pigs
Haven't you heard, pets by post is the next service from Amazon. When next you open an Amazon locker there'll be a stray cat waiting to follow you home and it will be hungry.
I wasn't there long (by old time IBM standards) but it was a nice posting and I enjoyed walking to the train in the evening, seeing the rabbits hop around the bowling green.
Yes, England and Wales could join the Channel Islands, Mann and various British Overseas Territories outside the EU while leaving the UK inside.
Scottish Notes aren't legal tender, even in Scotland. Neither are NI notes. They're promissory notes and the banks hold the same value of Bank of England notes to meet those promises. The BoE prints million and hundred million pound notes to let them do that. English banks did print notes but a change in the law stopped new banks from doing it and the old ones merged or went out of business.
Too many government employees would quite happily plug a strange USB stick into their computer, this minister probably won't. That's safer.
any tips on which bins to look in first?
what are you running on it?
I've got an SF which I got as far as android 4.0 with a lightweight app set as a loaner for guests but I haven't looked at it in a few years.

BB10 UX was great - everything just worked and most of it just a swipe away.
I was sorry when I just couldn't get enough 3rd party apps still running to justify keeping it - banking, local transport and messaging
You sail it into the middle of the ocean and shoot anyone who gets too close?
So Xiaomi are a tat-flinger while Apple are a fine purveyor of hand crafted ornamental devices? I'm not sure if your distress is because you think a Chinese brand is beneath you socially or because you're afraid the high end manufacturers will stop sending you kit to test if you don't disparage people from buying something cheaper.
They have to out think the current government's front bench...
Because Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab have set the diplomacy bar too high?
How will it know where it is?
I can see how it makes sense to send it into space uncrewed before putting humans in it but I can't see why it needs to be sent beyond the moon. Are conditions different there?
Point of Sale applications can be tricky all right
I've got a laptop on either end of my travels - but there's a time at the start of a plane journey when they say laptops and large electronic devices must be stowed, phones and tablets may continue to be used provided they are in flight mode. That's when I take off the keyboard and watch Netflix. :-)
In airport lounges, hotel corridors and occasional bars, can I prop it on my lap? I've had several tablets and the Surface Pro was marginal, all others inadequate and that's before I start cursing the keyboards.
but the demons are the only ones that the church will try to drive out
They make a lot of products, as the article says, their mechanical watch isn't competing with Apple, they have watches in the Amazfit and Mijia ranges to do that, here's an example;
The EU hasn't invaded anyone, it's secured the peace in Europe since it was created. The last time Europeans mounted an invasion of the UK, it was Netherlands and that worked very well.
@Steve Davies 3
since you're writing in the English language, the name of the country is Ireland, you can only correctly use Éire when writing in Irish.
@John Brown (no body)
Why not draw the line at the nations who get to vote on their membership of the United Kingdom? If Scotland had voted to leave in IndyRef 1 it would all have left the UK. If Northern Ireland has a border poll then under the Belfast agreement they also go as a unit.
Do you think GCHQ can help them prosecute the Belgacom hackers?
because orange juice was the only mixer it had
