I think that Eta Carinae will blow up before Betelgeuse.
The very idea that somebody would pay to go to the Eurovision song contest!
You always get the highest score for No Trumps
Everyone knows that's a Chinese Communist myth!!!
BTW my father-in-law was Telegraphist Air Gunner in Swordfishes. They were trying to avoid a German fighter which was MUCH faster, so the pilot took them down to street level in a Norwegian town where they could turn through side streets, but their pursuer could not as he would stall at that speed.
I have heard that the Swordfish's stall speed was about 50mph
Would love to hear from any Norwegians to confirm the tale.
When we we see these on consumer systems?
is a skill every tech guy should have
Icon: isn't that a baseball bat?
The problem maybe caused by something that is not supposed to be there, like some harmonic or intermodulation product in the RF signal.
Clearly it should be rotated by 90 deg clockwise.
Don't forget the Poles, who did the earliest work on cracking Enigma (before they were invaded)
'Fuchs' in German means 'Fox' in English
Crap movies have The Razzies
Why not have an award for appealingly buggy software?
I suggest that El Reg is the right place to host it; what do you think?
Suggested topics could include:
Most Insecure software
Phone producers with the most bloatware
Corporation with most leaks
Corporation with most spyware
Website with crappiest interface
Website with most offensive/in-your-face adware
I have the opposite phenomenon; they seem to be driven by non-artificial stupidity.
There are loads of people in first world countries with negative wealth, like students with massive loans to repay, people stuck with negative-equity houses....
The truly poorest are usually the ones without enough income to get a loan.
Not ANOTHER proprietary connector !!!
We're going to die!
Your new diet alternative to full-fat EU!

Bile green would be best (to represent the anger of the user)
"In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women, and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri."
Lasers are inherently narrow band so I suggest that all cockpits (and bridges on ferries) should be fitted with filters to remove the green laser lights.
If that is too expensive, give the pilots googles with filters.
This might work but the power dissipated to get through a blanket of fog would be enormous ( backscatter, absorption) particularly if aiming at something low to the ground.
Most firms don't care about your android device once they have your money, so the only way to keep it safe is to root.
I have used Malwarebytes on android. It found 2 malware apps which I removed; since then the system works OK.
Then the system should be that the journo DOES NOT HOLD the key.
The encryption should be public-key with the decrypt key in head office.
There are also workplaces that will not ALLOW mobile phones in, but have nor problem with watches.
The excited part could cause great embarrassment depending on where you are.
Coat ; its the dirty raincoat
The population is usually irrational and complex - never integer and (when Boolean) TRUE
momentum= (Planck constant) / (wavelength)
If so if this is the mechanism then laser diodes would be better.
I LIKE the takeoff and landing - they are the good bits.
What I hate is being stuck in a seat designed for anorexic hobbits; being unable to afford (or get the boss to pay for) business class, I am stuck in immediate danger of deep vein thrombosis.
The exclamation mark is a warning (like on road signs) anyone using this should beware. See icon
Don't you mean 'Cheese-eating surrender mammal'?
Lands clearance suggests that you have an alternative use for it (in the clearances in Scotland it was sheep).
What could one use Sunderland for? Wind farms?
Bearing it mind that the subs will be running on Windows, how about Bob, Rover and Clippy?
Don't blame me for the language design; I think it's wretched, too,
and I only did this implementation for the hack value. Finally, a
*real* language that's as perverse and limiting as INTERCAL...
I have never seen better.
I beg to differ.
For getting work done I go with function over 'beauty' every time. My garden spade looks pretty rusty but works, nobody will gaze in admiration at my screwdriver set and it is the same with the software I need. I prefer CLI over GUI --unless-- the GUI has some real added value for the extra screen space it uses.
My data reduction is run with a CLI (which can be easily scripted) and save the pretty stuff for showing the results.
The appealing looks maybe useful for selling games (yes I'm thinking of Kate 'Game of War' Upton) but does not help the game quality.
Art is 'worth' what somebody will pay for it.
Personally I like the train set, but getting it from the manufacturer has a better guarantee than that from the artist.
No sign of 'art for art's sake' with this lot.
I think it is wanted on Magrathea
They really need a fine-toothed comb to root this out.

I couldn't because it is Irish and starts with an " O' "
Their software could not accept " ' " as it wanted letters only.
I suspect it would have the same problem in South Africa where some names include " ! " for the click sounds.
Have to agree; if you want resilience get away from digital and if you want coverage go below 100MHz.
This allows anyone to listen, so you may need to use code phrases.
