Come on, everyone knows the BBC's real talent commentates on Test Match Special.
> the universe is infinite, then we can assume every possible arrangement of mass, energy, and thus information actually exists.
Whenever I feel sad, I take solace in the fact that somewhere in the multiverse a planet populated entirely with Jeremy Clarksons has just been vaporised by a Death Star.

Of course the standing of a column is in direct proportion to the number of potential speaking engagements it engenders - that is, it has a height equivalent to the theoretical plate.

> This isn't correct, you can't watch a TV broadcast, but you CAN use streaming services to watch pre-recorded and live television - as long as it isn't the BBC.
You've been misinformed.
You need a TV licence to legally watch any form of broadcast telecommunications. Live streaming is considered a form telecommunications broadcast so you need a TV licence to watch a live stream.
With on-demand services OTOH, content is not broadcast to multiple recipients,so this method of content delivery falls out with the TV licensing law's definition of 'broadcast'.
This is explained at same source you quoted.

"Live TV means any programme you watch or record at the same time as it’s being shown on TV or live on an online TV service."
"If you’re watching live TV, you need to be covered by a TV Licence:
- if you’re watching on TV or on an online TV service
- for all channels, not just the BBC
- to watch satellite or online programmes shown live from outside the UK or Channel Islands."
> Meanwhile I can watch RT news, free online 24/7 which is considerably less bias. I can even watch Sky news for free without needing a licence.
As pointed out earlier in the discussion, you need a licence to watch ANY programming that is broadcast live ANYWHERE in the world. This means RT News, Sky news are not free. In fact, even content like Twitch or YouTube live streaming can be construed as live broadcasts and require a TV licence to watch legally in the UK.

A Saffer is a person congenitally incapable of running between the wickets.
> Same reason you still need a TV licence if you have a device capable of receiving OTA TV broadcasts even if you never plug the thing into an aerial/STB-connected-to-aerial-or-TVOIP-feed.
> I have 3 TVs in my house and no licence
My fear is that the Capita goons are not beyond attempting to use the same 'device capable of receiving' argument.
Hence I pre-emptively filled the terrestrial arial and cable connectors of my TV with Sugru so there can be no doubt that the device cannot be used for licensable activity.
An ounce of prevention, etc ...
i've never been to County Mayo, but I once worked with a lad from Dublin and I didn't care much for him.
> Just like I have blacklisted Amazon's Kindle because Amazon has the power to remove a book that customer's paid for without the customer's consent.
I learned my lesson with Adobe's e-book store that simply 'lost' my customer ID depriving me of every book i'd purchased with them.

I remember the frustration of owning an HP iPAQ hx4700. In those days I dreamed of a touchscreen device the size of a DVD case.

Is that what they mean by tapping Trump Tower?
> Darn it, why do I only have a single upvote!
Hmmm ... would a long-time poster complaining about a lack of upvotes on elReg? Sounds fishy to me. How do we know it's you and not some imposter?
Nevertheless, the paper suggests the sweep time is consistent with orbital motion of the beamer footprint. Indeed, the authors propose the silhouette of the lightsail could be detectable from interference patterns within the beam. The implication is clearly that we're catching glimpses of the beam 'at work' rather than shifting between targets.
As I understand it, the FRB's remain static while we* sweep through the beam's path.

Dear Mrs Trellis,
I think what you mean is the greengrocers' apostrophe. Plural, not singular.
Crikey, I hope the debate doesn't go to penalties ...

If I was in charge, I'd require spacefarers to undergo surgery to fit fitting a couple well designed stoma that can connect to a standardised waste disposal / recycling system.

In my last new-build house the plumber managed to swap the hot and cold feeds. Warm water in the loo cistern is quite pleasant - the scalding hot second flush, not so much.
There's nobody newter than me!
First we had Dead Steve Jobs, now Zombie Zuckerberg ... where's Rick Grimes when you need him.

I'd advise not opening the pages too widely.
You'd really have to call it Sphinx (or some other mythical pussy) in order to catch Trump's attention.
> the Pixel cases that Google displayed on the wall of one of the booths all had a round hole in the back. Why?
Why indeed? And why does the position of the hole match the position of the fingerprint reader?
For me, the hardware is secondary to Google's baked-in software and so a more sensible question would be - why did nobody think to ask how long Google will provide software updates for the device?
And we can see you, hardcore Double DOS fanboys ... multitasking in the 80's was such fun!
I was getting excited about "a thin layer of material that repels farts and water".
I'd say his clothing is newsworthy as it reflects his attitude to the court.
As an ex-military man, he would be aware of the importance authority places on spit 'n polish as well as general demeanour. Wearing formal clothing and standing upright in the dock could influence the judge when it comes to sentencing.

> Can anyone tell us what it feels like?
This is the internet. Look hard enough and you're bound to find any number of fetish sites dedicated to the recreational kidney stone experience - no doubt with detailed instructions on how to keep the same one going 'up and down the tubes'.
It will be interesting to see if the same login scheme is implemented on iPlayer Radio.
The only sure way is to suck out the poison from the affected area ...

Conteporary writings describe the device as "amazing", "inspiring" and "beautifully responsive"; the shipwreck was clearly a result of a user holding it wrong.
> I think you confuse poor working people with benefits scroungers.
I think you confuse benefits scroungers with welfare recipients, the vast majority of whom are either willing or unable to work.
