Real Vision, Real Engineering
i literally sat on the edge of my seat from T- 2:00 to when the two boosters landed. As an engineer that works on meaningless and uninspiring projects, its this kind of stuff that keeps me going!

it is worth the effort (leaving Windows behind that is, I am not ready for the hassle of leaving Google just yet). I have switched pretty much completely to Linux Mint, I keep Windows 7 for playing some games and for some Windows only CAD software that I use.
I always dabbled with Linux on and off over the years but this Windows 10 nonsense is what has finally pushed me to (almost) completely switch. Nice work Microsoft Marketing Droids!
ah ha, its very satisfying when one of those old cables (that I have been told to get rid of on more than one occasion) can have a new lease of life. like for example a SCART (worst AV connector ever...) cable that found a new home by connecting a very old TV to a DVB-T box.
hmm, i don't think so. Snowden has made info available that exposes the reality of total surveilance. Something that many suspected was happening but one could not be quite sure it was technically possible (think of the enormous amounts of data that are being slurped and sifted everyday).
Snowden is in my opinion a hero and I hope that he survives to a ripe old age.
i wish this had been around 4 months ago before I bought my Nexus 7. My Galaxy S Plus is getting a bit long in tooth (even after a revitalising rooting and installing SmoothieJB custom ROM) and needs replacing. But I don't want to replace the Nexus 7 which is a great piece of kit. Downside on this Fonepad is the lack of a camera which means for many people it can't replace their existing smartphone.
I am getting more and more put off by LinkedIns persistent attempts to scour my contacts. Was genuinely shocked when I saw them asking for my work Outlook account details. I work for a MegaCorp and I just know that loads of MarketingDroids will be merrily plugging in their details.....It is a major security FAIL in the making.
