There are Elm and Mutt. How many more do you need.
Isn't it time for the used to start a union and demand better pay?
Russia, China and America are still the superpowers and more or less at war with each other, so some rules for cyberwarfare would come in handy, such as a rule not to damage routers in neutral countries and not to cause to blow up nuclear reactors.
The Rovyal Navy sank the mighty German U-boot fleet and the Spanish Armada. Apparently they also conquered ME and MacIntosh.
"almost nobody has access to the ship’s CD/DVD-RW drives"
I wonder to how many knots those drives propel her forward.
It makes a difference if those intergalactic gas clouds consist of atomic or molecular hydrogen. I suspect the former to make a poor coolant - lacking vibration and rotation.
Parma Chameleon - Penicillium Culture Club
Major Tomme (A Cheese Orgy) - David Browie
In the Rocquefort-free World - Neil Young
That would do nothing useful, but people might vote it into the White House.
Discrimination! Just because James Clerk Maxwell was born in Scotland! he still tops those britons (except Newton).
Bertr& Russell \/ nobody.
Parts of the Internet are still working - even the Register website is accessible from Europe.
There have been rumuors of Microsoft embracing open Source and even GNU/Linux. Redmond might show its love by opening the source for Skype Classic.
One gets the impression that this problem can be avoided by modifying the OS scheduler such that if it allocates two threads to a core, those threads must belong to the same process. That would also be nicer for the cache.
You can take a coin, toss it towards the heavens and if it falls back onto the earth with its head up, the refugee may enter the Euil Empire, tails tell (s)he will be taken to the throne of Trump.
National Energy Research Department buys A.I. supercomputer that will research its own energy consumption.
Far Cray? Yes, we can make America great hot jungle again.

Apple MacBook FreshAir ProBlemo - sounds cool!
“Are you planning to follow a career in Magical Law, Miss Granger?” asked Scrimgeour.
“No, I’m not,” retorted Hermione. “I’m hoping to do some good in the world!”
Holy Computer! We can only assume the inventors not only put their AI through not just rigorous Turing and IQ tests and university exams, but also ascertained that its soul was in a state of grace and if it could *accurately* communicate with the Lord of Hosts through prayer.
" the governments also controlled the religion"
Actually, no. Many rulers of yore have controlled religions to increase their power, sometimes claiming divinity for themselves.
"There is only one religion that can be interpreted as calling for the takeover of all the Earth by whatever means necessary. "
Yes, that is the God of Moses, Abraham, Jesus & Mohammed. Popes were the only religious leaders to control governments, instead of the other way around.
There are millions of young smartphones who want to pursue their deep machine learning.
P.S. I apologise for the way our Majesty has chastised the British people and their elected government for their plans to exit the theatre called EU.
"What about the people who live in Sussex? or Essex or any of the US States that have a Sussex County or Middlesex County or Essex County?"
What about Sexbierum in Friesland?
Google's motto used to be "do no evil"; is "make money, not love'"an improvement?
The IBM 801 is supposed to have been the first RISC processor, back in 1980.
Porcessor architecture stopped mattering around 1995. The future is in application-specific chip designs and coprocessors.
"There are a lot of things that the Mac gets right."
Let's guess: CISC processors, lots of RAM, SCSI discs, Apple Desktop Bus, Ethertalk port, VGA display, Postscript Laserjet, NuBus. Apple got a few things right (including firing Jobs), but SUN did them better.
I'm half expecting Apple to drop the MacIntosh family of microcomputers. Switching from Intel to ARM may be a good idea today,, but by 2020, Intel's new 7 nm EUV process will make Chipzilla great again.
Does this Windows still come with the mandatory screen where the luser can choose whether to install Opera, Firefox, Chrome, or Edge Explorer?
It was computed by Excel, therefore it must be true.
Once upon a time on the far shore of the ocean, there was PC-DOS and it was hand-crufted in glorious assembly language. Then came Win16, which supported C and Pascal, Followed by Win32 and Win64, which mostly supported C. Like Prince Charles, Windows .NET and C# are the designated successor in waiting (or was that Midori?), and now in the name of ESR, Redmond wants you to switch to C++ anda new OS API. (where is the documentation for the NT kernel?)
Does that mean that Microsoft Corporation and its business partners, including but not limited to the SCO Group, will stop prosecuting Linux users (expecially corporate entities) for real or presumed violation of their many patents?
Thank Gates you only have to press <ctrl-z> to undo the update.
Oh, if any one anything lacks, he'll find it all ready in Hypercard stacks

Windows enthusiasts, you rarely get to meet one in the flesh. Guess this goes to show that if your Windows 10 is running half decently, you should never change its software.
It's only natural that the Middel Kingdom (and we don't mean Middle Earth) should endeavour a mobile OS after trying their hands on alternatives for Windows and Linux.

So they keep you in custody for 360 days and then put you on a plane back to where you came from.
You don't want to bring laptops or cell phones anyway. It's just that I don't want to hand over the password to my e-cigarettes.
I suppose new holes means bugs that are not present in older versions of Acrobat Reader.
Windows 10 for Fall Creators -> Windows 10 for Bots
phopshine sounds like the name of a photoshop plug-in that makes your pictures shine.
We understand that the earth's atmosphere used to be reducing in the olden days, before photosyntheseis liberated lots of molecular oxygen (O2) that would readily react with any phosphine (PH3) our there to produce phosphates (H3PO4).
After all those negative electrons were blasted from the ionosphere into space, our planet must have gotten positively charged.
"Do you have any officers who would make a good cyber czar for my great nation of America?"
Well, statisticallty speaking, the chance for a lady to encounter a company with a 2:3 female-to-maile programmer ratiio is somewhat euqal to a lad's chances to end up in a shop with a 1:30 female-to-male ratio.
There is a female-run software company in our lowly country, but when appearing on tv they still used gus to do the actual tech stuff.
" the simple fact is lots are still choosing Microsoft products"
That's why they call it a monopoly, because Apple is the only competition. There are just no apps for your cell phone, unless it's on Windows 10.
"but we simply cannot afford to continue living in the dark ages," said chief digital and information officer Richard Corbridge.
If fax machines are dangerous, then what about the danger of hospitals not being able to share information?
Presumably, the fax machines being but small fry, Britain simply cannot afford public health care anymore. Is that because all the money they spend on IT?
Now it's time to make the Holy Bible Politically Correct.
All I want for Christmas is a watch so fast that it runs 25 hours in just one day.
Apart from maybe Microsoft, nobody seems to be making any money from selling software these days. Such software as you could buy consequently is half-finished.
In order to finish, companies need to sell support in order to feed their programmers and to get the software 90 % finished by the time it is replaced by the next version.
Without support, all yyou have is lots of dubious repositories of free (as in free beer) source code. which takes to years to turn into something workable. You shoyld support costs to the personnell costs of doing it in house.
A real SCSI or SAS disc offers decent speed, reliability and longevity. Desktiop drives are so slow and unreliable they are likely to wear out before the user had a chance to fill them. In the year 2000 we had 15.000 RPM drives, so something spinning at 7200 RPM is consumer grade.
If VoiP is no longer a telephone service, dus that mean that governments no longer have legal means to intercept or copy VoIP calls of pedophiles, drug lords or terrorists?
There is no such thing as an extension in Linux or Unix, only filename suffixes If you tell the OS to execute some file, it will check your permissions and then its magic number and if none matches, pass it to a shell to run as as script. File names with '/' or '\0' characters in them are asking for trouble.
