Bonus? BONUS???? I assume he's paying back last year's bonus.
The Shuttle was designed to be reusable, but took a heap of expensive resuscitation between flights. The SpaceX first stage seems to require little more than a rubdown with a half-brick before it's ready to fly again.
I heard that part of the rocket launched this week (the second stage) was on its 5th outing. That must save a few bob.
What systems do they have for backing up in case of fire, flood, power cuts, terrorist attack or an idiot with excavator.?
...and we can now see why.
Sounds good but expensive. Each one costs one NHS hospital.
Wikipedia: "Capita Group has not been received well by the public and in the media. It has gained the nickname "Crapita", particularly from the coverage in the satirical and current affairs magazine Private Eye, which routinely documents the company's many failures and setbacks in the public sector."
The worst government of my lifetime, getting the biggest issue of a generation wrong, based on little to no information, having been given the tiniest mandate obtained through deception, largely to satisfy a generation who won't be affected, because they'll be dead.
Why did the Tories do this? Why did they turn an internal party squabble on Europe into a catastrophe for the UK and its 65 million people?
Its odd to think that in a few short years, only museums will have fossil fuel cars in them. Alongside Jeremy Clarkson.
They're going to re-classify it as a NotAnAircraft Carrier,
So the Tories now have two Disgraced Ex-Defence Ministers on their record (please use this correct title), and they're lining up the third. It'll be interesting to see how the new one falls down. My guess is sheer incompetence in the role and in Parliament
And the airlines want us to fly in pilotless planes. Think I'll walk or stay at home.
Of course, nobody who reads this will seize the opportunity to attack these assholes on twitter, will they? Please don't or you risk joining their number. Oh, alright, make an exception for Toby Young.
Worth a look: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capita#Criticism
Why didn't the alleged "Health Secretary" take action? Well, he's part of a government that wants to destroy the NHS.
She doesn't mind too much as most of them are Tories.
"The NHS is safe in my hands."
Well they won't have to worry about Gibraltar travellers. We're about to lose it to Spain.
Logic would dictate that these many advertisers would also boycott the Daily Mail and the Express which are at least as good at spreading hate as Google.
"auto-tensioning bollards" is a staggering technical advance for these jetties Its just a shame that we don't have planes to put on the carriers.
So the new drone, instead of just one wedding party, can wipe out 2 wedding parties and a hospital at once. I expect Trump will want to use them when he declares war on Iran, probably only months from now.
If you are, you should read https://t.co/RqX5a8ECDc before going ant further.
For years I was puzzled as to why so many people were suckered into buying a pretty computer costing about twice as much as its plain Jane equivalent. Then Brexit won and Trump got elected and all became clear. People are stupid.
"Don't worry, be happy!" Good luck if Donald Trump wins.
First I've heard of this story. Has ANY mainstream media outlet (NYT excepted) run it? Sometimes I think that having 4 out of 5 newspapers owned by non tax-paying expat owners doesn't quite align with the idea of press freedom. Right now they're trying to destroy Leveson, and only the House of Lords is defending it.
Yeah, I'm going to ditch my Samsung and buy an Apple Iphone 7.
As soon as Apple starts to pay tax.
Hey BT, this is the second day. Is it going to be a regular morning event?
Upgraded 3 tear old Lenovo from 7 to 10 a few months ago. Since then the wi-fi connection fails maybe 10 times a day for no obvious reason.. I have to reconnect manually. Any thoughts?
Good idea. They'll get it as wrong, as Murdoch does with tech, go bust and Rothermere will stay in France, Dacre in Scotland. Result! High fives all round!
Ought to be grateful, I suppose. Seen HSBC's record on money-laundering? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSBC
If you can provide all that the Beeb does for less than their 40p a day, then yes. And I'll be paying you along with the rest of the population.
This series of cuts to the BBC is part of the payback to Murdoch and Rothermere for helping the surprise Tory win to happen. No less, no more.
The Beeb come up with good ideas now and then. No wonder Murdoch and Rothermere hate them -its jeallousy.
You know you're getting old when you can't understand a Reg headline before you get to the story.
And next, Apple to pay tax in UK?
What are the odds against that?
Another day, another politicians' promise. No breath to be held, please.
The review of the Bosch Athlet says it is "possibly not best for Gran." I would disagree, as our Gran thinks its great. Mind you, we used to hang her on the washing line and whack her with an old carpet beater when she got mucky. So I suppose its better than that.
Don't forget who owns Sky, and ponder why he's called The Dirty Digger.
No, we're not paranoid. They really are ALL SPYING ON US.
Sky is down? I expect the IQ of local people to soar if the outage lasts.
And their main aim will STILL be to sell you some crummy financial product for which they'll have to compensate you later for mis-selling. Cynical, me? Yeah, they had me twice. Give me a sleazy used car salesman every time.
Maybe its something to do with the Network World report accusing BT of supplying backdoors for GCHQ and NSA.
Hey! Look, a squirrel!
This is just another distraction ploy from the ex- PR flack Cameron.
This time he wants you to forget about Lynton Crosby the lobbyist for No
Plain Cigarette Packaging and No Minimum Pricing of Alcohol. Crosby
just happens to work for the Conservative Party -very suitable
bedfellows, but Cameron HAS NOT BEEN LOBBIED BY HIM. Nope, not at all. No, really, not even a little bit.
and with all the grass and sky and trees in black and white, it was really boring. We couldn't afford coloured flowers till 1959.
We used to dreeeeeeeem of plastic sandals...
Everything this government does turns to shit, from the economy, the privatising of the NHS, the benefits system and on to this atrocity.
It feels to me ( a non-millionaire average bloke) as if a malevolent bunch of aliens took over after a war I somehow didn't notice. Did the Nazis win WW2 after all?
Its massive, said the actress to the smartphone.
I suppose the wheels are retracted in that pic?
PC manufacturers are so out of touch. I've been looking at ultrabooks for months, and yesterday I concluded that they're just too expensive for me.
So I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 i7-2670QM 8GB 750GB GT540M 1GB BluRay 15.6 screen.
Yes, its bigger, fatter, heavier, slower disk, but I SAVED £450 quid! You can get an o.k. holiday for that, or nearly an Ipad.
Just checked my box and blundered into the Jeremy Kyle show. Its utterly hideous. Bleuurrgghh. No. DON'T LOOK, it'll damage you!
