It's just a shame that you can't trust an editor, even one of Sam Schmidt's standing, to arrange proofing of the digital editions of their offerings. Analog in particular believe in a push the button digital conversion that buggers up formatting, as do most other magazine offerings. Not that normal book to ebooks conversions are much better.
A particularly boring children's TV program, except that one time when they had Tom Baker introducing a strange book that had you fighting creatures...
There were at least 3 'Warlocks' in action in the school by the end of that week, with none available in the local Book Shops but plenty on order.
@badvok 'It is hard for some to realise that programming that appears to focus on the London area is actually relevant to upwards of 15% of the population of the entire UK.'
And of no relevance to the remaining 85% of the population - but it's still forced fed to us on National TV and Radio.
'I'm a clean air campaigner. I work in the City and breathe the pollution in central London, it's horrible.'
And by working in the 'City' you contribute to the pollution, so that buggers your clean air credentials.
Can anyone give a decent rational as to why the 'City' exists in this day and age? Is there any job or function within it that can't be done elsewhere?
Given that by the time they reach the place, that mining ship owner is living in a totalitarian dictatorship, one lead by people who space anyone who dare offer dissent, then I think I might go along with the Adama cultural revolution as well.
(Plus on the planet there is always the hope of running into the more intelligent and technologically advanced Golgafrinchans.)
But they didn't kick it off did they?
They applied for a non-software, but IT related, trademark for a word\name that they had been trading under for 16 years (without objection). Then they get ambushed by an hysterical statement from a monolithic organisation who have made little effort to secure their own rights to the mark in the past (despite being lead by an IP lawyer!)
But the PSF will get a free pass as they not Apple, Google, Microsoft or Games Workshop.
Spots the Space Marine, may I introduce you to Python the Server.
I can find a couple of flaws in the above...
1) It's an English term, the Nazi's were actually quite keen on people using German so probably never registered it as such.
2) 'A long time ago...' so precidence for it's use already set prior to the Chaplin lookalike. (Plus it came into common usage late in WW1 not WW2)
Damn, I've used the word Nazi ,which LucasFilm did try and claim a trademark for (and not TSR as some people believe.)
@Mike Brown: Think of the negatives as the truth of revolutionaries get revealed. The revolutionaries you write about were openly contemptuous of the masses who put their necks on the line, and always had a fast horse\car available in case things turned sour.
Try using the old tactic of shouting out buzzwords and slogans to rouse the (ignorant no more) masses, while your enforcers stamp down on any dissenting voices. It just wont work nowadays; the people formally on the podium are now just faces in the crowd. In this new world everyone has access to the facts (and not just those supplied by the opposing factions) and a voice of their own.
True - but thats not a fault of Companies House but of HMRC, who moves so slowly they make glaciers look like Usain Bolt.
Plus CH can't look into Directors unless somebody complains about them and initiates proceeding, which normally should be creditors of the company i.e. HMRC.
The problem is that they, along with their over expensive computer systems, are not fit for purpose.
Not convinced that we've lost our original hero. I think there's some doppelganging at work.
I always thought there was something a bit dodgy about 'Mr Yellow'. Would our stylish all-action hero really wear something so gaudy? Did you check him for a goatee before sending him up?
How else can you explain things going so disastrously wrong if not an inside job?
I'm betting the saboteur is having a chuckle at us from his undersea volcanic lair, off the Isle of Wight, where our heroic space cadet is being held captive after imbibing a laced cocktail.
Been at least a couples of programs on BBC about it. One is an Horizon type of program with loads of wizzy graphics and jumping all over the place, the other is more of an investigative program where you actually get the persons involved explain their line of thoughts and mistakes - just like Horizon use to be like.
Home grown tommies taste delicious because the average home gardener uses 3 times the level of fertiliser than farmed foods. Farmers are very precise in the amount of fertiliser they use (normally following Defra defined ratios) unlike home growers with their bags of growmore, tomorite, human urine, horse manure liquer, etc.
Probably because if they didn't comply with the various data retention acts, and the requirement to hold onto any none transient data associated with a person, their whole operation would be shut down.
This deleted data will\must still exist on backups, which could be the actual source of these recovered tweets, and possibly not from the active system itself.
