I would but the problem is what do we raise in a celebratory toast?
And those bizarre Sony network blocks that slip onto the end of the power brick when you buy a VAIO. You know, the ones that mimic the hardware address of the Vaio's wireless card and thus royally f*** up layer 2 switching in e.g. enterprise networks that have both wired and wireless networks.
How that the Windows Update dialogue box has been infected by Windows 10.
And the Bynars will be performing the updates...
"Gentlemen, if this is what you call "enhancement", you've got a gift for understatement."
A borescope comes in handy sometimes.
And wrong bastard sized threads on the 19" rack nuts...
Disappointed no music in that PS4 preview.
It convinced me to buy an Amiga. We had a couple of A1000 for use in the laboratory because nothing else could throw a screen full of windowed texture around like an Amiga; the copper was just superb for that, and the 1000 had a PC coprocessor card as well, so you could run two machines synchronised to stimulate visually and record whatever in perfect synchronisation. As the techie guy, I played around with the disks that came out of the box and was hooked. I immediately saved up several paycheques and bought an A500 for home. Had a little computing room in the back of the house with a music studio and CAD/CAM setup. Loved it. Then I needed the space for the baby, the Amiga got boxed and sold, and that was that.
Just put the award... you know... over there somewhere. It might bring the room together.
Imagine if he'd used valves...
It could also find a home as the set of some homage Sci-Fi production, along the lines of Space:1999. Now that was a computer with a lot of lights!
They'll name them after you. I hear Bill has a few already.
It's why hiding it in a Bourbon would be the best bet. No-one eats the biscuit of chocolate deceit.
However I fear that this technology will be used by terrorist affiliated political organisations. Yes, PITA is at risk of succumbing to Hummas.
The heads are displayed on power spikes down the secure access corridor...
Because it's important to know if Skegness is unique in the universe.
No, sticky though it is, I think that jam would boil off in vacuum of space. You'd need an oil based substance... like a layer of soft cheese, perhaps.
Two of them. With a bloody big net slung between them. Or three of them joined by a rope like a great big bolas.
before they insist on taking the meat bit out of the loop. And then came SkyNet.
Surely the drones self-pilot to within a determined distance of the target area then switch to operator control for the decision making and strike?
An internet connected expressing device...
The Internet of Things Personal Uplinked Mammary Palpating device.
I once got in trouble for putting in a purchase order requisition form for a pad of purchase order requisition forms...
True. They quote a notional cost of £50 to add a new supplier to the books, all the companies house look ups and credit checks etc etc. staff time etc etc.
Then they hire someone else who goes through the suppliers list every year and removes anyone who hasn't had an order placed in that time, so the odd thing here and there which you only need every few years or so like bespoke LTO cart labels, you have to go through the whole process of getting them approved again...
is like making love to a beautiful woman in a canoe. Fu**ing close to water.
Exactly. Do people want fire that can be fitted nasally?
The communication over the internet will be encrypted. With the somewhat personal nature of wearable etech this will be an ideal place to roll out The Internet of Things Wide Area Network Key Exchange Resolution (TITWANKER)
I just watched this woman burn...?
He was Swiss. He was born Louis VeRéreard.
The Internet of Things Network Interface Protocol System or TITNIPS for short.
Of course there was a brief misunderstanding over a typographical error which saw them developing for The Internet of Thighs, but that was soon rectified.
Well they had to leave it a few nights just to be sure.
Sadly missed. Great actor, nice chap.
Bag checks were part of the contract. A refusal equalled dismissal. They'd never lock you in if you hadn't finished, but the slime toad-faced supervisor would stand there watching how you worked for your next three shifts if he thought you'd been slacking. The somewhat nicer supervisor would revisit what you'd been asked to do and then ask super-Babs to give you a hand once she'd sorted out the milk - the important thing was getting the job done. Stock on shelves, not on Winsfords.
Depends how long it takes. A random shakedown shouldn't hold anyone up by more than 10 minutes at most.
I was contracted to be in store from 6.30pm to 10.30pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but we were frequently let out early if we had finished stocking that delivery and there was no line that was in the warehouse that wasn't on the shelves. Some managers would let us get changed then we'd have to strip the shelves of empty cardboard until 10:30, when we'd be out promptly. Other managers would let us out at 10:15 or 10. And sometimes we'd be lined up ready to go when three or four guys from security would step around from another aisle and we'd have our bags and pockets turned out.
It's swings and roundabouts. You might be out five or ten minutes late one night, five or ten minutes early the next.
We used to get a shakedown every few weeks at random when I worked at Tesco. Like I was going to sneak half a pound of pick'n'mix out down my trouser leg...
Parking cars, what else dum dum?
Ah, the road is paved with good intentions.
Everyone knows that he's in the car park.
but when Range Rover are getting worried about poor road surfaces...
We've found both of them.
"In much the same way as the computers used to control microscopes many vendors use exotic or ancient interface cards linked to older operating systems. Your 10 year old million dollar instrument still works fine but the controlling computer is limited to XP and is no longer allowed on the network. Plus you have to buy replacement computer parts on ebay."
Yep. Been there, done that. You're not Canada Richard are you?
And I have to say, I always recommend an Apple because (1) the Unix underpinning means the bulk of standard bioinformatics tools are available, (2) there's the standard Office suite available, (3) anything that is PC only (a lot of e.g. customised DNA/RNA specification software) can be done in e.g. Parallels or VirtualBox, (4) native PDF for screen drawing means that if you can see it on the screen (OK, print it), you can make a PDF of it easily and freely, and scientists love PDF (5) There's a lot less nasty stuff out there that you can pick up by just browsing the WWW (6) They've usually already got a stake in the Apple eco-system with a smart phone or an iPad or something, although I've not persuaded anyone to use Keynote and beam their presentations from their phones in the meeting room yet (7) things like Matlab run better than on Windows because of the memory management.
The downside is all the bloody dongles, so I've no idea if someone is hooking up an "illegal" laptop (we register Mac addresses for the vLAN and it give me a chance to check for antimalware), the expense of repairs, and being a more attractive target for walkthrough thievery.
I've a fair share of PCs as well, about 50%, and I have to say, I spend far, far longer working fixing Windows issues than Apple ones. I can easily have a PC laptop on the workbench for one or two weeks with all the updates, defragging, registry repair, dual antimalware installs and updates, KMS problems, Enterprise Wireless issues etc etc
And then there are a few UNIX machines too. Most of the Microscope machines are PCs due to custom hardware, which is a pain in the arse because you can't replace the box without considering card interface standards PCI, PCI-E, half-height, dual width, x4, x16, available IRQs (some cards simply won't work in these cobbled together hybrid Dells with their bus negotiation chips that fuse older bus types onto newer ones), then there's hardware driver availability in newer versions of Windows... so you end up having to consider buying a new £250k microscope rig just because the PC has died and you can't get a new one that works with the older hardware. OK, there are virtually NIL Apple-based microscopes, but if there were again as there were once upon a time, they would be a single cable standards interface like FireWire for the camera and USB for the controls.
But... did you glue rice krispies to your eyebrows? Enquiring minds need to know.
It's right next to the one for the coffee machine.
In my house, about 22 seconds per chunk.
the image is compressed spatially by the gravity of the super-massive black hole, so appears crisp, and it shows a galaxy churning out stars at a rate many times that of our own... but has anyone corrected for any temporal compression that may have occurred as a result of a lensing effect known to affect both space and time? I mean, this isn't my field, so I'm just thinking out loud here...
I've seen one called The Noodle Poodle before.
She did a damn sight more in the later films as well, don't forget.
Healing frequencies open.
She did eat in the series. Hope she recovers well. Still gorgeous. Still admired.
I was referring to the techless server centre.
