"because changing the contents of a computer you don't own is illegal in many or most jurisdictions."
Isn't that like every API, every server request, every web page?
Does it have a truly haptic feel that replicates a key click under your finger, but not under other fingers so that the touch typist wouldn't be able to distinguish it from a moving key? I've never used one.
That they haven't perfected the haptic feedback as used on the magic trackpad to create a solid state keyboard yet.
That company structure is kind of complex... so it's like an OS with a hardware abstraction layer, on an emulated BIOS in a virtual container, with a side channel hypervisor, and an emulated EFI shadowing real address space?
One Windows to find them.
Call me sceptical if you want, but I thought there was something fishy about the one-size-fits-all announcement.
Someone will be milking it...
This should be referred to as the Common Rural Agricultural Policy.
Have you ever been to the Harry Potter place? All these places are well expensive. Except Cadbury World, and that wasn't as cheap as you'd have thought for the misshapes.
Release the Kragle!
A lot of people are saying that the film & tv tie-in sets have ruined the product, but so long as they retain the original, plain, bricks alongside these more lucrative toys, I don't see a problem. One tie-in that I'd love to see would be the new Thunderbirds series. The pod vehicles are now modular, you see, and if there's one thing that's going to lend itself to Lego-isation, it's going to be that!
to break the company down, restructure and rebuild.
Should be a doddle.
it gets stronger. Allegedly.
When a charity gives out free food to the homeless and the hungry... is the system known as buy-no-meal distribution?
They don't call them Peelers for nothing, you know.
It saves on the paperwork, I suppose.
It's a self-bolting horse.
So that's Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen, Nissan, Datsun and BMW off the road then. Oh, and Renault. And Citroen...

Apart from it sounding like some sort of fancy soap, heaven reeks of pipe smoke this evening. RIP an inspiration to us all; the boffin's boffin.
I too am doing that, but it is an enforced obsolescence. For several users, it is because Pitmans is no longer doable on Word 2010.
That is the last decent version of the Office, as someone else commented above.
They already have a gun that can shoot around corners, and bullets that can change direction mid-flight (Exacto, IIRC), and shells even explode into a shrapnel kill-ring at a preset distance in order to hit something behind cover.
We have scanned one rabbit... no... two... hang on... four rabbits?
You couldn't do it with visible light, because you'd fry people's eyeballs. So infrared? But you'd need kilowatts of energy to do that.
Oops. My mistake. Butterflies was a BBC2 comedy. I was sure it had an ad break, but there's the vagary of memory for you. So what ITV comedies does that leave? Not many. There's a fair bit of (crap) crime drama from the ITV stable, though.
UKTV is only 50% owned by BBC Worldwide. The rest is owned by Scripps, an American concern, at it was formed as a partnership with Thames TV. It shows programming from commercial channels as well as having a large BBC archive to dip into. It's worth contemplating WHY so many BBC programmes are shown on channels such as Dave and Gold... is it because there's a rich archive or material that people want to see? What could be recycled from the ITV archives without causing too much offence? On the Busses is about the most risqué thing that could still be rebroadcast, and that cuts it close to the bone most of the time. Mind you... a rerun of Butterflies might work.
They show a mirror of what they think their viewers think. Which is usually what they think. If you can call it thinking.
Does ITV still produce stuff like World in Action? Or is dumbing down now across the board?
to calculate the ultimate answer to life, the universe and everything.
It returned 4/2000
the VESA mounting specifications? Do away with the stand, how does it work with integrated desk mounted supports?
just wanted to control their heating from their phone.
in the 40 watt range?
I visited BVE yesterday, I think that means Broadcast & Video Expo; anyway, there was a lovely air powered remote squib system on show. Can't help but think if BOFH got hold of a demo unit for that, what fun would ensue. The 6-hit programmable sequencer unit fitted with the American-style blood discharge heads was particularly impressive.
Fly... or fall with style?
Yes, and there's plenty of opportunity for using the word Fokker in his presentation to the board.
That somewhere there's some scope for the BOFH making use of the adjacent story, "Fancy owning a two-seat Second World War Messerschmitt fighter?"
Beautiful name. And... spoilers, sweetie.
They have... detailed files.
Yep. Spares for that... you got rinsed.
I agree. It really doesn't suck.
It's part of the Out Of Their Box Experience.
Sideways move for one of their pelati-phlebotomists?
Dr Who. Waters of Mars. Jeesh!
Oh yes. Greenwich upgrade is all on-hold now. I was sure it was done already. Part of Mayor Khan's project review. It still has around 1GW of generation from oil though I think. It's a backup to the grid supply.
