Buy that man a beer
This is for all time the Ultimate Showdown. (sing along if you've had enough beer lol)
<Sigh> I do miss that first joint of the day, that heavy sweet aroma with a hint of singed fingers. The gentle hiss of the sponge and distinctive rattle of a Weller soldering iron being thrown the last inch back into the spring holder.
Must ...resist.... urge.....don't need to mooch through the junk bins at Hardings Electronics in Cheltenham. Sod it! I'm getting my coat
I wonder how much Lockheed is bringing to the project? It could be this slippery supersonic design has already flying for some time.
Ah I see the problem...
Strange, every web host has a 'force majeure' (it's not our fault / pixies ate the backups) clause in the hosting contract for just this sort of contingency. So one has to wonder where the pressure is coming from to pay up.
So Apple can can say their updated OS is totally secure, pull out our fingernails we still can't unlock the device. Yet any three letter agency with the clout to alter the DNS registry can quietly insert code remotely into any vulnerable app on a suspects phone.
With the exception of Thunderbird Six pretty much everything that flew was nuclear powered.
During the happy days when most routers used WEP encryption my personal best for an urban WiFi hack was about 100 meters using a relatively small homemade Yagi antenna and a stock wireless dongle. Though the bandwidth sucked it was no worse than dial-up, plenty enough to get online or pwn the owners box.
I feel sorry for the 9/11 conspiracy theorists, this will drive them nuts
Izal know what's going on.
This is about who's stealing the loo roll
Salyut-3 space station and its successors had a modified Rikhter R-23 aircraft cannon mounted for 'testing' purposes. At four feet 10 inches long it's a comfortable fit for the American bird.
Is anybody else having flashbacks of JOE-90?
The JANUS magazine link suggested by Google was a NSFW shock

The current world record for a pumpkin chucking cannon is just over a mile at 5545 feet..

Don't worry soon the British will retake the colonies and sort the mess out.
Back the early nineties landed a 'computer' job for Dowty Fuel systems and spent the first week in the machine shop repairing punch tape readers. Vending machine tea flavoured with cutting oil and a hint of cyanide vapour from the plating shop across the car park, fond memories...
mines the one with the big hammer in the pocket
In M.R.D. Foot's history of the Special Operations Executive there's a mention about plastic explosive being edible, now bend over and cough while I check for a detonator.
I saw this and thought of you guys, vultures with lasers in a kids cartoon from the 1980's
Punishments will involve the removal of redundant organs such as an eye, a kidney, a lung, or a testicle.
May his merciful shadow fall upon you.
I love El Reg, it brings me all the best wierdness
This slope has been greased for your safety
That'll be some holiday photos I won't mind seeing
Mines the flightsuit with the "Salvage-1" mission patch
and what about the other agencies who they shared images & data with?
Revenge is dish best served remotely, ideally from a self erasing bash script on the bosses laptop.
Any excuse to throw a parcel over the fence
Probably all the Facebook passwords being added.
So once the public forget about it we can rendezvous with the anomaly
New iPhone X, push the earbuds into the sports nutrition bar thus to make a demolition charge.
Hackers not getting the blame for a government computer failure? pull the other one!
Phase two: cockroach in a railgun
Enough of this blind man's buff with baseball bats!
Crank up the active sonar to 11 and let's get the supercavitating sub fighters off the drawingboard and into the water. That'll give everybody something to shkval about.
Seriously Mr Trump? go read Paul Parfomak's 2014 report "Physical Security of the U.S. Power Grid: High-Voltage Transformer Substations", digital shenanigans are the least of your worries it seems.
Since 2003 at least six transformers are known to have been destroyed by rounds from a common relatively small calibre hunting rifle, the FBI can tell you how many other incidents have not been made public for security reasons.
I find the lack of comic sans most disturbing
Our alien lizard overlords wanted more beach-front basking property on Earth so they simply removed the water from Mars. This flowed from the stargate portal at Giza into the Nile and caused the previously unexplained water erosion of the Sphinx enclosure.
Seriously with comments like that and they wonder why they cannot attract new talent. Then again maybe it's a recruitment test, a challenge for those with the stones to go after the GCHQ firewall.
I think Idris Elba could work then again so could the return of Catherine Tate, it's a timey whiney meta crisis thing. But if you really want to mess with your head... is Paul Darrow (Avon of Blakes7) still about?
oh I don't know I found this pic of Gary Newman with a companion
Seeing science fiction become fact does bring a smug grin to this old space pirate's face.
FYI: if you burn your jets hard you may catch the 'Bishop' over at the bushcraftuk forum who is currently unloading a scifi book collection. He's had it hidden under his server room floor for twenty years so lots of gems with the really rare ones destined for the Imperial College scifi library in London.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
Any technology, no matter how primitive, is magic to those who don't understand it.
For those not familiar with nasal resonance meet the beast of 3840 and the perils of VOX
So when are the Americans fitting a gun turret and anti-tank missiles to it?
It's real?, I thought it was Danger Mouse's origin story
Same here running a Triptych of 22"s in the office mostly coding and website related stuff that requires a real time eye. Couple of years back though I was lucky enough to meet 'Kohai' one of the staffers from Chess.com, an amazing woman with insane levels of multi tasking skill who was running a five screen monster at home. Simultaneously handling customer support from billing to technical SNAFU's, overseeing the forum/chat mayhem and somehow finding time to bug test the next code push.
So yeah there's definitely a market for the little Razer.
I've got an access point to crack
You are Dr Sidney Alford and I claim my five pounds of Semtex.
