So just like democracy then ?
"but male breasts are, apparently, fine"
Mine are more than fine - they are stupendous
(must start going to the gym)
That's true of most things
Religious bigotry in Glasgow football has been part of our way of life for a century
The Geneva convention is obviously a foreign plot - the clue is in the name
Could be worse, you could have rowed at Oxford while working at their muon source lab
I miss the 70s when we all the terrorists were white.
From the folkish charm of the Oirish, the reliability of the German RAF/BM and the shear exuberence of the Italian communists
>A more common factor appears to be a politician who "does God" for one of the major Abrahamic religions. Their identity is shaped round the concept of an omnipotent dictator who must be obeyed.
Although in the case of Blair it wasn't that he got God - more that he decided he was God
There are lots of cheaper ones - Velodyne are just the top of the range - with good support.
If you are building a one-off test vehicle and have a project employing 100 top engineers at $100K salaries then saving $50K on the single Lidar system is a waste of time.
> When I work on someone's machine, I am not rummaging through their files.
Unless you can get a $500 bonus for finding anything
You would have thought that being the world's largest target for cyber attacks would have made them desperate to have systems patched and vulnerabilities plugged.
Like the old joke. A man walking down Whitehall asks a stranger "which side is the foreign office on?"
"Ours I think, most of the time" is the reply
>Would you trust a patch prepared by the NSA?
You already trust patches from US corporations who rely on the favour of the US government
Odd that the NSA didn't share it with GCHQ
Obviously GCHQ didn't know about it - otherwise they would have told the NHS
It's not like the British government would risk the lives of 1000s of ordinary people to keep secret a tiny exploit
But a laptop can contain red-mercury which terrorists can use to open a stargate and defeat the x-men, I saw it on Fox
it's the Li-Ion battery in the hold that is dangerous. You should remove the battery, put the laptop in checked baggage and then carry-on the battery
But so long as the person in the street uses google to mean search the web but uses Google to search it then it isn't generic.
So thanks to its monopoly among non-register readers Google gets to keep its trademark
As opposed to countryside ?
It was deliberately re-spelled so it could be trademarked.
You can't trademark a number - unkless you are the MPAA
In 2017 shouldn't we be able to hoover our floors with our hover Hoovers ?
I Altavistad when I was younger - it was a crazier more experimental world back then
Isn't Silicone Valley what people in LA call Décolletage ?
If it was the work of private enterprise it would make you pay the ransom upfront, then fail to encrypt the files, then make you pay for an upgrade, then pay for a 'consultant' on site to encrypt them for you - then the whole project would be cancelled after running $Mn over budget and be repeated after everyone involved was given bonuses
But what if the next government needs to check if you ever looked at a pro-immigration web site?
28 days isn't long enough
They have annoyed/embarrassed the Russian and Chinese governments
Bitcoin isn't as anonymous as you might assume, especially if you are spending large amounts of it.
Certain country's security forces aren't overly concerned about collateral damage
By default Foxit blocks a lot of the more "interesting" features of pdf beyond just displaying documents
As long as you mention the war - you should get away with it
Generally it's a certain galactically-pyrotechnical Korean company that is the worst offender
Just do a media studies degree - then you don't even need to watch the movie
Google needs to hire lots of machine learning experts.
The more there are the cheaper they are to find and hire
If they know the exact ML environment they will be using at Google = bonus
It's the same reason Bell labs made 'C' freely available all those years ago - it's worth more to be able to hire coders that know 'C' than the risk your competitors will use it
They just googled "HP spying scandal" and got the wrong division
The committee have asked the whistle blower to beat himself up before appearing to help with over-stretched police resources
The unit investigates "National Domestic Extremism and Disorder Intelligence" only one of those applies to the police
Simple, you place the laptop in the hold but carry-on the battery
This is a country that lets their kids play with machine guns so they can defend themselves from terrorists - so putting inflammable Li-Ion batteries into the hold to protect the plane from bombs follows a pattern.
But you can't bring them back - thus boosting American exports (of Chinese made laptops)
Until Ca decides to build its own wall you might find them migrating south in search of warmer climes
Or fly via Moscow, mother Russia is excluded from the ban of course
Or Thule could offer a special 747 roof box !
But what about 1000s of homeless redundant Boeing engineers cluttering up the sidewalks
Or tomorrow's announcement that they have "listened to concerns" and the ban won't apply to US carriers who have "enhanced security"
Sounds a bit waterfall, shouldn't you have a more agile seating capacity ?
Because global freezes normally suggests that panic has set in.
We have a tight deadline to meet on project X with penalty clauses of $$$$, we need a contractor for 0.1$ to complete it - nope there is a complete ban, do not think, do not pass go, do not complete project.
Worked at a government lab once with a $Bn piece of kit that we shut down for 3months at the end of the year because a budget overrun mandated an overtime ban and the kit needed support 24x7 while it was live. Result was lots of people sitting around at full salary 9-5 doing nothing
Or at least you could hire a contractor to watch the video for you - while you got on with some work
> they are T. May's puppet masters.
That's a relief I thought it was the muppet people
although Corbyn does seem to be puppeteered by Ardnman
Or they make a film about it
What is the student "competition" here?
Their institutes have a BFO supercomputer.
They run a standard benchmark
Are they coding the benchmark themselves as part of the competition? If so are they allowed to use the libraries that came with their supercomputer?
Otherwise it seems like a competition to travel fastest by train, with students from Paris taking the TGV beating students from London taking the tube.
Science fiction !
>Also insecure so it can be used to spread malware too.
Well it is owned by Microsoft
Marx was a muslim, it was on Breitbart - fact
But the register is able to use advanced artificial intelligence to monitor the mental and emotional state of its readers.
Generally pissed off, bored and cynical
