Re: my domain has as many addresses as I want
I use firstname.lastname@example.org, e.g. email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Then if I get spam to a particular address I know who to blame.

Llechwedd is very safe and tourist oriented. For more of an adventure you can spend a day exploring the nearby Cwmorthin slate mine - look up Go Below Extreme.
You enter the mine in the middle level (the upper levels are all collapsed) and make your way down to the lowest level that's not flooded and back up again. Aong the way you climb up and traverse vertical walls (via ferrata style), zip wire across the top of deep caverns, an abseil descent, ride down the deepest underground zip line, and finally jump of an underground cliff attached to a free fall descender.
There are no concessions to "tourists". The mine is exacly as left, except for the zip wires and safety wires. The only lighting is your helmet torch.
From the Telegraph article...
"Ted Briggs was one of only three survivors from a crew of 1,418 on board HMS Hood when it was sunk by the Bismarck in the North Atlantic more than 74 years ago.
Before he died he had often hoped the mighty ship’s bell could be salvaged from the seabed as a fitting memorial to those killed in the Royal Navy’s worst loss of life from a single ship during the Second World War.
His wish was finally fulfilled last week, seven years after his death, when the bell was recovered by research a team led by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen."
So how will these cars cope with roadworks, temporary traffic lights and stop/go boards?
Instructions from police officers at accident scenes?
Obstructions in the road and narrow streets with cars parked on one or both sides?
Will it understand gestures from other drivers or headlight flashes giving way to it in those situations?
Will anyone let one of these cars in from a side road in heavy traffic and how will it know when it can pull out?
Think about every decision you make when driving and then how a computer driven car would know about that situation and how would it be programmed to deal with it?
"Perhaps the chief inspector should have specified just which celebrity Ian Watkins he meant."
This is probably the dumbest comment ever in a Register article. The clue was in the previous paragraph. "The lead investigator in the case of the Lostprophets Ian Watkins". Who else would he be talking about?
People are comparing 'Android' and 'iOS' as found on the 'iPhone' and 'iPad', so who's actually the dork?
To add to the anecdotal 'evidence'... I have an iPhone 4 (still on iOS 5) and a Galaxy S3 (on stock 4.1.2). The iPhone has crashed at least twice in the past two years. The S3 has never crashed in the six months I've owned it.
