f MRI... I was wondering how gross structural morphology was going to be a correlate of schizophrenia.
DeluxePaint IV on the Amiga. Ah, what joy!
I wonder what the reality will be concerning announced "High Speed Connections" projects?
Ask Brian Blessed over.
Flash is alive!!!
I know, I know, Gordon's alive, but hey.
Identity Services Engine Admin portal from Cisco, for example. At least the version our network group have just deployed. Seemed most bizarre that the very thing I'd been tracking down and killing on my user's machines for the past year over security concerns was suddenly required to be on my machine when the network team implemented the new authentication system.
Agreed. We had code for a breadboard light sheet microscope, and I was called in to have a look at a dropped frames issue. I got all the stepper motor pulses on a dual beam scope, as well as the camera and shutter trigger pulses,it all looked good, but at some seemingly random point in time they went out of synch, skipping a frame and re-synching part way through the cycle. All the instructions and scripts were supplied by a collaborating laboratory. The set up of the script for the D to A convertor was fine, but they did have a bit of code they'd written themselves for the image acquisition, which they hoped to commercialise, so they only provided the executable. Turned out that it was that code that was causing a resource blip all down to a silly little timeout waiting for a response from piece of hardware that was superfluous in our rig and so wasn't on there. Took months and months and months to sort that one out by a process of trial and error, mainly because although that bit of code was the only one left where there might be a problem, they refused to acknowledge that there was anything wrong with it and in their opinion not having this bit of hardware wouldn't be an issue. We had the D to A system shipped back to the States for a full diagnostic, which took up a lot of the time. Turned out that WAS faulty as well, but not in a way that should have caused that fault. The frame dropping was still evident even with a replacement known, checked and recalibrated D to A.
when you are looking at a study of, say, time course studies from 2000 zebrafish brains, scanned at sub-cellular levels on a high speed, multi/bi-photon matrix lightsheet microscope, generating around 200Tb of data alone, then ongoing storage costs are a real issue. How long should these data be made available? 5 years? 10 years? Forever? OK, it's nice a cheap to stick them on tape or freeze them in AWS glacier, but even then you are looking at a good few thousand pounds a year, and it's hardly freely accessible.
And putting it all on ice gets even more appropriate when you consider, say, keeping a set of plasmids in liquid nitrogen for the next 20 years. Space in the -80°C freezer, anyone? And you have to keep track of the samples as well. Barcodes and QR tags on everything, then there's the company that's going to rake it all in with a laboratory management solution - unless there's a reliable and flexible open source solution for that too. Has to be cross compatible with other institutions of course, because researchers are a mobile lot, and when they go, they tend to take their samples with them.
All told, this, although it's been on the horizon for a while now, is going to provide some real challenges.
for someone to release a music track called "Hey Siri!" where the chorus goes "Hey Siri! Play track Hey Siri!"
If they only CAN work during possession, why would it be overtime? They're contracted at the rate they are and the hours of possession are very, very tightly controlled and defined in advance. Very predictable. Over-running a possession is severely penalised, so no incentives for overtime are offered.
the regular tube communication system though. I understand that relaying communications manually between two systems is a major issue with getting things done right. At the moment, I understand, the emergency service controllers can broadcast messages to TfL/LUL staff in a defined emergency zone using an override channel on their regular radios - it seems like a pretty advanced system in that respect.

If there's ONE good thing you can say about Virgin, it's that they run an advertising campaign where they call their cable product DOCSIS3. Even if they only do that distinguish it from BT's offering and to make it sound sexy.
POTS is analogue duplex voice frequency over copper / steel. i.e. DIAL-UP. We've all heard of that.
Broadband from the exchange uses ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+. Lots and lots of people have heard of that.
3G/4G. Internet for mobiles. Everyone has heard of it.
Fibre-to-the-cabinet uses VDSL/VDSL2. No bugger outside the telecomms industry has ever heard of it.
Dat's de fings wot lets you see vids innit?
Sex isn't everything it's up-cracked to be.
as an on-spec add-on to another call out...
You know the sort of thing. "While you're here, do you know anything about these? I mean, I know you're computers, but... ", "Actually, I didn't start out as a computer technician, I'm an electro-physiology technician but the pay's better. So yeah, I'm pretty familiar with these."
I disassembled their signal amplifier, continuity tester confirmed the fault, three minutes with a soldering iron... find the replacement part... another three minutes to solder the new one in and test it all - (cost £20 for the switch incl shipping & duty from the US). When they asked me about it, they were just in the process of reluctantly packing up the (out of warranty) equipment to send back to the United States - the OEM's repair estimate? £4,300 incl shipping, about two-thirds of the cost of a new one.
So I wait with baited breath - I think that's worth a thank you or two.
cream & sugar.
but I couldn't get the lid of the coffee pot to stay down.
With the variant subclasses being suffixed alphabetic characters.
I'm looking forwards to the launch of the Type 36DD. HMS Maidenform, HMS Silhouette and HMS Kiss Me Deadly being the first three down the slipway.
It's a swab that changes colour.
My mate nicked a lorry load of incomplete ones en route from the iron casting place to the factory. Couldn't sell them like that, so I had to finish them off myself before we could sell them. I got done for handling stolen items, and he was charged with dealing in forged goods.
Fun LOGO scripting that! Does it have remotely operated handcuffs as well? That would be epic fun.
The two concepts of phone and personal transport might not be linked with a smooth logical step, or segue...
To be fair, the Cantina Band are actually heard to play two tunes. They sound pretty similar, I'll give you that, but they are different tunes.
Imperial troopers and rebels battling it out in character around the resort, droids rolling around...
In practice... Jar Jar Binks, Ewoks and Mickey Mouse.
The pen is; meatier than the sword.
Ah, but that's the lie in the advert, you see.
They should bring back the one pound note, and make it Solent Green flavour.
Oh yes! That's out today. Does anyone know what flavour this one is? The beef ones were delicious.
That advert for Currys music systems was FULL of them.
Let's talk frankly about vaginal dryness.
No, let's not. Take it to the GP or something.
Mind you... seeing that advert go back to back with one for Tena Lady.
Do I need to do the Microsoft vacuum cleaner joke?
No more party political broadcasts from the Tory party then? ;)
Well I think a large communications company could be involved. "Orange alert!"
Find it hard to pin down the target demographic for the product. If only he could find some way to make his advertising more effective...
“We are not numbers. I'm not a statistic, I'm not a collection of attitudes and desires, I'm a human being with my own dreams and hopes and problems, and by making me a number, you've removed my dignity”
Where am I?
In the global Village.
What do you want?
Whose side are you on?
That would be telling. We want information… information… information.
You won't get it.
By hack or by crack, we will.
Who are you?
The new Number Two.
Who is Number One?
You are Number Six.
I am not a number! I am a free man!
Rust in peace.
Now I know where I've seen that shape before!
Looking cool? Change for change's sake? Tax write off?
Mind the gap.
You see AI has a lot to answer for. When the robot was instructed to patrol the mall and take a closer look if it saw anything fishy...
Well he was nearly killed at an overpass rather than a passover... dangers of being a first born.
@Esme - It was all done in the best POSSIBLE taste.
could talk all four legs off an Arcturan MegaDonkey - but only I could persuade it to go for a walk afterwards.
Do you remember "Fuzzy logic"? That genius buzzword that sold us washing machines and microwaves etc. that were apparently designed to cope with more than one sensor input at a time - extending wash times if the water temperature was lower, or giving it an extra rinse if the water was highly conductive due to a lot of dissolved particles (meaning, presumably, that the clothes were super dirty). I wonder whatever happened to those?
