So few villages.
Quaser or Quasar? As long as they're not Quagaars...
Maybe they were checking to see if you were part of the inner circle - the Society of Hardcore IT Honchos, Extra-Achievers Division ?
I sense a new market in Malcolm Turnbull masks.
Yes, a spaceport should be near the equator, but a spacepork is best situated near a dense mass of potential votes.
"detectors for both motion and movement built in"
Did I miss something? Aren't movement and motion the same thing?
Paging Charles Prentiss, Charles Prentiss to the courtesy phone.

I've tried flying sideways, and flying to the front,
But people just look at me,
And say "it's a publicity stunt!"

It's also important to realise that SeL4 is a *micro*kernel. When I looked into it a couple of months ago, it (i.e: the core, subject to the security proof) seemed to be little more than a scheduler and IPC mechanism. Things like file systems, drivers, etc would need to be implemented on top of SeL4. In other words, when saying "why does it need an OS kernel", bear in mind that we're not talking Linux levels of complexity / functionality here.
Caution Icon: I didn't spend very long investigating, and don't claim to be an expert.
I also have backed exactly one project - LOHAN. I got what I paid for (a mug), but not what I hoped for (launch).

"The laws of mathematics are very commendable but the only laws that applies in Australia is the law of Australia"
Let pi = 3...
They laughed at Galileo, they laughed at Einstein, they laughed at Darwin... but they also laughed at Bozo the clown.
" It never occurred to them that they hadn't ever actually supported the delivery of their pictures?"
Unfortunately many people don't understand how electronic devices like computers and phones work, even before you throw the internet into the mix. They seem to view them as magic boxes. And why shouldn't the magic within those boxes be free - after all, it's magic, right? Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...
When you do upgrade, make sure you use a pointless albatross - less wear and tear on its feet.
Damn! Trapped by a brilliant stratagem, and a common-or-garden forty-four thousand ton battleship.
Quiet office, nothing to block out: selection from Sarah Brightman, Haley Westenra, various classical pieces
Noisy office: selection from Guns n Roses, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Birds of Tokyo, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Miracle of Sound
I always play the same sequence, so my brain knows what the voices are going to say and so is free to ignore them while I immerse myself in the code - often when I surface I don't recall actually hearing the songs. Contrast to actual conversations which are in principle unpredictable and force my brain to spend attention on parsing them before it can ignore them.
Hacker: Why do you experts always think you’re right?
McFarlane: And why do you think the more inexpert you are, the more likely you are to be right?
Hacker: Ministers are NOT experts. They are chosen expressly because they know nothing.
Luke AFB to Lockheed: How are our pilots supposed to function without oxygen?
Lockheed: Use the force, Luke!
Farnarkling? Or Dave Sorensen?
Superb image, well chosen.
"There is nothing ...secretive about this," Jagielski said. "Some items we are required to keep private..."
Perhaps they got a job implementing a debt recovery system...
What about the Phantom Batter Pudding Hurler of Bexhill-On-Sea?

Sensible policies for a happier Britain!
I don't know why she's crashing, or when she's gonna load,
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't wanna know
'Cause for 24 months I've been living next door to ALIS.
Fantastic subheading! Deserves a beer.
Unfortunately, my dog has no wafer.
for the circular firing squad.
If there was a firmware update so the Nest would say that, in Holly's voice, I'd consider buying one.
Too soon - outsourcing only happens after the local mob have taken their cut.
I read the headline as "frog-infused martini"
Stayed for the snark - not disappointed.
You have a

Or perhaps working via /dev/rroger ?
Perhaps I missed it in the article, but I don't see how data not being decrypted in the browser implies that the data is stored as plaintext. The same observations could be made if data at rest *is* encrypted, but is decrypted server-side before being sent over TLS.
It's certainly possible that IBM / ABS / whoever *is* storing data unencrypted, but this isn't sufficient evidence to prove that claim.
He's not making a point, he's pointing a finger...
"Right, so what if McPuck, or someone else, succeeds in passing a new law? Bottom would then be sulking, but wouldn't be entitled to complain about it."
However, if Bottom *did* attend and a new law was passed, then he's still not entitled to complain - he'd have given his input and been consulted, right?
Heads you win, tails I lose. I don't blame him for staying out of it.
It sounds harmless but the trick is knowing when to stop - I've seen nested messes of
that have to be seen to be believed. It makes grep happy too!

Their example inputs do not match their written specifications...
Is it pre-installed with Windows 10?
We can detect a passing GSV?
Well, they're only a mute button away from being the Guild of Mime Artists...
Where's the scorpion pit when you need it?
Gently does it...
How about carrier pigeons? There's a
n app RFC for that.
We're going to need a bigger corner soon...
Politicians should be like NASCAR drivers - they should have logos from all their sponsors on the back of their jackets. Then you'd know why they vote the way they do!
Well, it is stimulated emission...
