I believe the door system is called Human Augmented Non Directional Leveraged Exit (HANDLE)
Since GPS is pretty much line of sight and you need to be in site of 4 towers (3 if you don't need height) then you would need quite a lot of towers.
As an alternative, why not a national grid of towers with their OSGB grid coordinates painted in large friendly letters? Then you would know where you were exactly
Judging from the time it takes some people to decide at a junction - I think most beige Honda Accords are using sun sightings as a means of navigation.
A National Positioning System using British satelites that orbit the M25?
Like the man that goes into the map shop and asks for a globe.
No not one of those Earth ones - I just want a globe of London
>Remember that "jitter" is injected into Civilian GPS
Not for the last 17 years it isn't. The current set of satelites don't even have the capability
>I witnessed the first trials of Harriers landing on Ark Royal
That's the beauty of the F35, by not having any carrier take off and landing capability a lot of stress on the airframe and pilots is reduced.
Our aircraft carriers will be perfectly able to carry aircraft around safely. A simple system of drawing chalk outlines around them when they are parked will allow them to be located to within inches
I am a staunch Telus-denier, I believe that Telus is a hoax.
There is no reliable evidence that Telus ever provided a mobile phone signal
Canada still has among the highest cell prices in the world.
This is completely unrelated to the 2 providers having a near monopoly and any competition being effectively banned. Telcos are required to be Canadian owned, and any upstart is investigated for any trace of foreign investment and forced to sell out to one of the governments 2 golfing buddies
But as an effective means of communication that is up there with using a one time pad and leaving messages under stones in the park for George Smiley.
If you have a regular commercial phone or computer that is ever connected to the internet or GSM it could be logging any key you enter and sending it to the MMB
>So the German car industry may sell a lot of cars in the UK but the rest of the EU is 6 2/3:1x bigger.
The biggest exporters of cars from N America are BMW and MB, so the Germans just export cars made in the USA to UK while happily locking the UK out of the Eu.
Or do you think May is planning a simultaneous trade war with the USA ?
We need to hoard more vulnerabilities to keep them out of the hands of N Korea
There are no Russian hackers, the Russians didn't try and hack the election and anybody saying they did is fired.
The Russians are our friends, although we have never met them.
No it's these people creating their own content. You should only use computers to view paid for content - and keep paying for the same content over and over.
Creating your own content for free is commie-terrorism
RIGHT - phones Whitehouse, "Mr President can you pass the phone to your bosses from Goldman Sachs sitting opposite you?"
Hi this is Facebook/Apple/Amazon/Google, we represent 45% of the stock market, we are moving to Canada. Hope you enjoy being a 3rd world country - bye
Maggie claimed that she was at a Washington briefing on Star Wars when a scientist said they would need 10^18 Watts of laser power to bring down a missile and their biggest ground based laser was 10^9 Watts.
Some other politician announced, "fantastic we are half way there"...
Some idea of numeracy might be a good idea in politics rather than just cheap debating tricks.
On the other hand Jonny Adair vs Boris Johnson leadership debate would be more entertaining
A couple of small points:
I suspect the DUP *really* don't like being called Irish.
From next week they have access to all those nice anti-terrorist data capture laws to track down people online
>Anyone consider May was just a dud choice
The alternatives were Boris and Gove .........
At least now it will only be Brie smuggled north instead of Semtex
I think the Wall (somewhere just north of Alderley Edge) will help
Contents may have settled after packing
Or Microsoft / Apple / Softbank just buy ASML.
Hey Intel nice chip design you have there, be a shame if you couldn't build a fab wouldn't it !
Not just foreign workers, the cost of foreign operating systems should be pushed up above the cost of hiring British workers to write British operating systems.
And they should run on British computers built with British Silicon, from British beaches
Wasn't this the Brexit plan?
Tata import workers to a visa friendly country in the same time zone as the Eu and handle all the Eu offshore work.
Here they call that a "convenience charge" if you print them yourself, and is strangely equal to the print charge if you have them do it
A gentlemen is judged by the obscurity of his reg comments
Millions of people start humming the MASH theme outside the Whitehouse
The real question is for a lot of Republican politicians facing mid-terms.
Do they stand up in front of a crowd of pickup truck driving American "patriots" and say; so the president conspired with the Rooskies to cheat your vote - but technically under clause 4, sub-section III, sub-para-9 of the whatever act that wasn't technically illegal so I'm supporting him.....
Is invited to a meeting in the Whitehouse and doesn't wear a wire?
I record meetings with my own company's HR dept.
Shocked government pulls pacemakers, insulin pumps, AEDs, ABS, autopilot, ILS from market.
The reporting thought it was a relevant fact.
It didn't report him being overweight, short-sighted, suffering from high blood pressure or a dodgy knee
In the middle of a big campaign to remove the stigma of mental illness and encourage especially young men to seek medical help instead of just killing themselves in larger numbers.
We get the "he suffers from paranoia" therefore is a nut job so you can't believe anything he says.
So remember young men in tech, don't go to the doctor to talk about eg. depression - it will be used against you if you are ever arrested / fired / called as a witness.
Real nuns also have better mustaches
"pay equally across genders"
Nuns are hardly blameless when it comes to equal employment rights
So ISP supply routers which by default don't let things connect to the internet.
So when granny buys that new gadget that lets her video talk to the grandkids, or lets a service monitor that she hasn't fallen - all she needs is a CCNA to enable the features in the router?
There was almost an Eu ban on using after-market motorbikes parts in europe, even proposing you could only fit manufacture's own tires. All in the name of safety. It only fell apart when it turned out to have been written with very close assistance of a certain Bavarian Motor Works company
But you can't imagine the new friendly non-monopolist Microsoft/Apple wanting a ban on Linux outside their own carefully billed data centers
So those 70,000 workers who would have been in your country paying tax, paying rent, buying cars eating in restaurants - are now employed in India doing your job ?
But Russia suddenly got smart
Instead of funding dozens of marxist-ish groups who spend all their time bickering with each other and have bugger-all chance of getting elected, you 'support' far right groups in the hope of breaking up the country.
Like the time honoured British solution of splitting former colonies in two so they immediately go to war with each other and aren't any bother to you.
>So in short, private companies want to monetise public spaces
Like those National Geographic bastards with their pictures encouraging people to visit national parks
Australia USA, UK, New Zealand Canada. do have a point - other countries seem to encrypt almost all their communications. It's like they have a different word for everything. Some of the really sneaky ones don't even use proper letters
So they can't do anything about N Korean/Russian/Chinese hackers doing real damage - but they have managed to collar some kid who may not have done any.
A bit like arresting a kid for letting off a banger because N Korea just nuked you
Your current MRI or CT scan is a machines best guess of what your insides look like consistent with the noisy readings.
Adding knowledge of what your insides should look like can only increase the quality of the result
Could we persuade Daily Mail readers that if going to Mars causes cancer then going to Venus must cure it? Then we could send them all.
i feel that your comment on my personal beliefs is an example of cyber-bullying - please report to your local ministry of truth fro reprogramming
>there are so many topics that just should not be joked about,
No there aren't
Now the Russians will learn about Russian involvement in the election
>unlike Russia which is enormous
More importantly is enormous east-west so you don't have to be too accurate in the orbit when your payload is coming down.
Telecoms used to handle that all the time.
When was the last time you heard of all of BT going down ?
There is a great quote about Erlang (programming language for phone systems) -
"in telecoms downtimes of a few seconds a year are just not acceptable."
Most large dinosaurs are strong and stable
It will be changed to keep track of China and Russia's score next year
