Breathless F-35 pilots to get oxygen boost via algorithm tweak

Trollslayer

Hypoxia?

Well from dive training we had ANOXIA which is a lack of oxygen and HYPOXIA which is excessive oxygen.

HYPOXIA and more than 2 bars partial pressure leads of oxygen poisoning and kills which is why some divers use different mixes.

I have tried oxyhelium 10/90 mix and the Mickey Mouse effect isn't noticeable at surface pressure.

Got a couple of stories about things going wrong in a hyperbaric chamber BTW.

What about the writing?

Peter Capaldi had next to nothing to work with.

Look at "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" - utterly barmy yet wonderfully thought out with a delightful piece of pathos at the end thanks to Mark Williams.

Or A Christmas Carol with Michael Gambon, Catherine Jenkins and the best line in the history of television "Doctor - there's a shark in my bedroom!". GLORIOUS!

"...and yet almost every US terrorist act has been carried out by white Christians."

Re: Qualcomm will lose the suit

Boo hoo.

I worked for a UK mobile modem company bought up by a large semiconductor company and we had problems breaking into the market, in part (it seemed!) due to talk of changing licensing deals by a large mobile company.

Go Intel (acquired another UK startup and people still work on this in the UK).

They may have blocked competitors (including those trying to break into the market) using similar tactics.

Along with "What's A Robot".

The original series broke taboos on race, raised questions on responsibility and consequences.

Enterprise raised some very good morality questions e.g. cloning a person for organ replacement.

Now what do we have?

You Robot - reducing Dr. Susan Calvin to "Robot get the girl" because a woman can't be someone you look up to.
