I wonder if all the models will attend the funeral in bunny-girl costume?

The other problem is that as a modern airliner flies, it gets lighter (you're burning off the fuel as you go) and thus the aircraft becomes slightly more efficient (same power output hauling less weight around). Battery-powered aircraft do not have this useful feature.
And this also means that the aircraft has a landing weight almost the same as its take-off weight, which makes it much harder to land safely.
Re: Full of it?
Okay, but I was also alluding to liberal vs. conservative politics in general. Does that not exist in Britain?
No, in Britain we have the Conservative party, who are traditionally thought of as right leaning, the Labour party, who are left leaning, and the Liberal Democrats, who are inconsequential but probably centerist.
If it does, I'd be willing to bet that the same effect applies there too, since the media there seems to be quite similar as in the US.
It depends on which bit of the British media you want to look at. The BBC is almost always toeing the party line of the establishment, which may or may not echo the views of the current ruling party.
The Times, once considered to be the most rigorously balanced newspaper, is now owned by Murdoch, along with the Sunday Times and The Sun, and they are all broadly supportive of the Conservative viewpoint.
The Daily Mail, the Independant, and The Telegraph are strong Conservative supporters. The Daily Mirror and The Guardian are strong supporters of a Labour view.
So by far the majority of British newspapers are right-wing.
Smith is due to appear before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on October 3 to answer questions about the hack. It's not immediately clear whether or not do Rego Barros will take his place.
I suppose it doesn't matter, really, they could both say "I have no recollection of these events" with equal clarity...

Deserves one of these at least
O2 is one of the smaller network operators, holding just 14 per cent of spectrum.
That's a misleading statement, however, as their overall network coverage of the UK is one of the most comprehensive.
Anecdotally, I have had much more reliable signal in diverse areas of the UK using O2 than friends and colleagues on other networks have managed.
Re: What price security?
This is not a cloud storage vs server storage issue. Badly configured storage is just as likely to happen on either.
I disagree.Most on-prem or managed storage is looked after by someone with clue, who can fend off the stupidities that cause this sort of leak. If a developer wants a database to be hosted, then it's done in a managed fashion, and access is granted with proper consideration of security consequences. In most cases external access from the internet is never required.
Cloud storage with one of the megalithic suppliers encourages developers who want to host a database to just stick stuff on it, and if they can't immediately access it, they turn off the default security, as it's not their problem. External access from the internet is inevitable in this model, and to properly lock it down requires clue. No-one with clue is involved in the process.
a service called "app readiness", which "gets apps ready for use the first time a user signs in to this PC and when adding new apps"
So, is it a pre-compiler for the pre-compiler then? The mind boggles.
I remember the days when a program came as a compiled binary, and didn't need to be created from p-code every time it ran. Curiously, that seemed to be a faster and more stable way of doing things, but progress moves on.
Not just functional programming. We used to do lots of procedural programming too. We used Pascal, so we could do both, because Pascal has functions and procedures.
I genuinely laughed out loud at that one. I must remember it to quote to other greybeard Pascal programmers I know.
Now what was it again?
Scott Helme's header.io site is very unforgiving in its marking.
As a comparison with equifax's score of "D" here's a few others:
Some of the headers that Scott's site marks you down for are very difficult to implement on real world sites, (Content Security Policy) and others are only just being introduced (Referrer-Policy) and are not generally implemented.
A fairer representation might be to use the Qualys Labs site
Where equifax.com scores an "A"
Re: Accident reasons
Also, what use is a facility that allows the drone to think it's landed, but is still at 300 feet?
I'm not sure it was a feature, more a bug...
As I recall from the accident report, the drones were originally fitted with a weight-on-wheels inhibitor which confirmed that the drone was actually landed before power could be shut down, however, for some obscure reason the manufacturers removed this.
...aren't aware of turning the automatic renewal off on these domain names.
I rather think 123-Reg might have thought of that, and maybe have disabled that ability for .uk registrations? I don't know, I'm not a 123-Reg customer, but it wouldn't surprise me if they had.
To me it seems a very cynical way of increasing .uk registrations, just to make the figures look good.
Though the JDP’s authors pooh-pooh the notion that unmanned drones make it morally easier to drop bombs on people...
You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh.
I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!
Contrary to popular belief defibrillators don't start things, they are designed to stop the heart dead when it is fibrillating - that is, when the AV node is firing randomly and the muscle is contracting and relaxing spasmodically.
So to use defibrillate as a metaphor for starting something is incorrect. As a metaphor for giving something / someone a massive shock it is probably admissible.
You can't just make an open-bladed huge great cutting machine and then put a warning in the manual not to go near it. You have to have safeties and lock-outs and mechanisms and barriers.
And therein lies the problem, individuals no longer expect to have to take responsibility for their own safety, instead they expect that they will somehow be physically prevented from attempting something dumb.
A prime example is railway crossings in the UK: despite barriers, warning lights, and all the other safety equipment, people still attempt to cross in front of a train, and the railway is somehow blamed if they are killed or injured.
At some point people should have to face the consequences of their actions, up to and including Darwinism, and not expect that they should have been prevented from getting into that situation.
