Re: Let's look on the bright side
Or big Brenda's server full of naked gay female marines. I wonder what the gay/straight ratio of the marines is compared to the general population?

Copyright laws apply to HUMANS. What a monkey did or did not do is irrelevant. The only person with any creative input is David Slater.
Also Slater as a professional photographer would have worked in RAW format. He would then have processed his "negative" in (say) Adobe Lightroom to produce the final result.
He owns the copyright of this final work irrespective of the mad ramblings of the US Copyright Office Office and Jimmy Wales.
The copyright laws regulate the behaviour of humans.
Any image made on my camera belongs to me if no other human was involved in its making.

Welsh is in a persistent vegetative state. As soon as life support is removed it will die out completely.
I say that because it's true. However I also support all these minority UK languages and am perfectly happy for my tax money to be spent to keep them going.
I also detest the homogenising effect of the internet and other modern media on regional accents and other regional differences. I also recognise that my detesting it will make no difference whatsoever and in the long term.
I bought a Scrumpi kit. £60 for a kit was a very large sum at the time.
Power supply not included. You had to program in binery since both data and address buses were shown by LEDs and data set by switches. I wore out the right hand “Step” switch.
It eventually ended up in college in a Differential Pulse Polarography rig.
It had a very expensive 12 bit A/D converter and an 8 bit D/A (output to a chart recorder).
I interfaced a bought-in board so that I could record/read data from a cassette recorder. I sent off to have a 32x8 PROM programmed which was used to boot from. I expanded the memory with SRAM on a bit of veroboard. I think to 1.5k.
The whole lot was self-funded from my grant (remember those!) as none of my lecturers knew WTF I was on about.
Still got the whole thing somewhere. Must find it and see if it still works…
