7. Go on a damned diet
If it's reality TV then ultimately there's some seed funding and then advertising sales are supposed to fund it (make profit)? (Unless I missed something)
So presumably, if the popularity of the show wanes and advertisers place their ads elsewhere then the colonists die from starvation or some other lack of supplies?
Can't see it ever working, even if the selectees don't kill each other enroute to Mars.
I do wonder that if EU nations were given a referendum on whether or not to kick UK out...
We're like the dirty little cultureless Americanised blot on the backside of of a bunch of otherwise quite interesting nations. Can't say I'd blame them for voting 'Punt-UK', personally, if given the chance.
Shame, really, we used to be quite good here once upon a time.
Good luck getting them to expire data from various sources within the regulations laid down for those datasets to be expunged.
Of course, expect summarised and recombined datasets derived FROM said time-limited datasets to be kept under different rules for far longer, too.
His wife was a possiblw code thief too then, by extension?
Not saying she was, not saying she wasn't
Some SFX records were only for amateur use, I seem to remember the BBC Death & Horror SFX record stipulated this on the sleeve.
Having said that I'm pretty sure FSOL used Dr Jekyll's Laboratory effect on a tune (though they may well have cleared it)
I rest my case.
Was the message my laptop displayed to me over the weekend. Needless to say I shut it down immediately and used the other (Linux) laptop to Google for what the virus was I'd somehow installed.
Turns out the virus was called Windows 10 and this was a 'normal' update message from it upon unsleeping, having downloaded some updatey crud...
Edit: Not a Sammy lappy, an ASUS Gamer Republic one I recently got for audio work with Reaper, etc
Every time, Neo
Been using them for ages, decent straighforward UI, auto-renew if you want it, good notification of upcoming renewals so you can check price if you want, etc.
If full details of the tender were made public someone(s) would get nicked for greasing the wheels of public office in a dodgy backhanded manner to get contracts awarded.
As per title....
They made a mint off kickstarter then made a bigger mint off facebook.
Seems to me they can afford to (and SHOULD) lose the KS money if refunds are still available for non-delivered items.
A thermally unstable noise source isn't present on a processor chip connected to a schottky-style gate which is then sampled to generate random numbers.
Using an algo is somehow cheaper/better? (OK, cheaper over mass production volume I can understand, maybe)
Logins aren't set to expire on the contract end dates then?
Wonga usedto be about 5800% and I've seen some adverts quoting (in very little fonts) over 6000% in the past.
Apparently Wonga are now 'only' about 1500% APR. Bargain.
Mice cannae resist 'em
Isn't it end-to-end encrypted now though or something?
Cos they're an Ally. To paraphrase Noam Chomsky :
Ally - Does as they're told by the USA, pretty much blindly
Rogue State - Might do as they're told by the USA, might have the temerity to question it
Terrorist Nation - Doesn't give a flying fuck what the USA wants of them
So you get a pint
You find buddy Holly in the attic next ;o)
No waterboarding either?
Heal Thine ERS
?? OK. Coat got.
You could fund a brick for the Great Wall of Canada.
Donate more and have your name inscribed in that brick.
A several thousand mile long petition, in other words, literally in stone.
Rough end of a ragman's trumpet, in some parts... ;)
Errrm that implies a couple of things surely...
1. Google isn't the infringer
2. The infringer can easily be found and presumably fined, hence revenue
Perhaps I misunderstood something there but it sounds like a cheap temp could google for stuff and find many 'infringers' for pursual each day.
Terrorists, Paedos and now the new ultimate horror - drones.
Strangely enough I just paid £263 for my insurance elsewhere when Tesco decided my renewal would be £530 instead of £370 due to an address change (to a 'nicer' area, too). Got the price from the opera-singing-now-robot company.
Which I consider pretty reasonable for fully comp with PNCD and legal for an XKR (hence why I don't want an acceleration/braking/cornering e-nanny).
When an insurance co puts their prices to silly levels I just assume it's cos they no longer want to cover your demographic any more, having focussed on a more 'profitable' one for that year. It all seems like a mahoosive scam anyway, imho, I'm sure these buggers all cahoot and collude together.
Seriously, I don't want an e-nanny. No thank you.
Even if it doesn't spaff all my data to some damned cloud I don't want a bot telling me it doesn't like my driving 'style' - the ruddy in-car camera is bad enough beeping at me when I go round corners too
fast 'enthusiastically' (as I believe BMW handbooks call it).
Well perhaps with luck, some of those 'public servants' who voted against having their own tax/financial records investigated might get the outcome they tried so eagerly to prevent after all.
To whit: Idiocracy
A tongue-in-cheek but sadly prescient film
Candygram for Mr Mongo ??
She's welcome to try but only because that means she'll have to get close enough to me so that I can punch her repeatedly in the face.
Tessie May personally opted out of the ECHR a long time ago, methinks. The 'HR' part, certainly.
Ah, is it ironic that irony is lost on the USA?
Irony++ ? Irony^2 ?
Not OK to 'steal' (duplicate, actually) what you wouldn't pay for but then, where's my refund when the film I just watched in the cinema was NOWHERE NEAR as good as the intentionally misleading trailer suggested?
Hmmm advertising standards, perhaps?
Just checked - you get less for Manslaughter with anything other than 'Low Provocation'...
So the MAFIAA are obviously more important than human life - of course we already knew this, naturally.
qui.moi surely? ;)
I'd expect a totally fudged answer that points in the direction of the truth but from the imagination of professional liars and inveiglers.
He should be compelled to provide his sampling methodology publicly, also, esp if he's only doing 'one run' at the figures.
Wasn't that the high energy emission/flinging-off of particles 'stuck' to the front of an Alcubierre warp bubble upon deceleration/deactivation of the bubble.
Seem to remember El Reg had an article some time ago about it.
It won't matter, no-one will want to consult/contract for Gov't in a year's time when the IR35-by-the-customer thing comes into effect.
Downside is they'll still not have the staff, either...
And none too few of them in the USA with taxpayer-funded employment
Except getting the chequebook out for compo
They should at least refund the previous year to those customers at the bare miminum.
Maybe they shouldn't have snorted all their milliions up their noses or whatever the hell they did with it if they're now in the poorhouse.
Whining (still) and becoming a Country & Western act (or are they back on heavy rock now?) really doesn't help their case at all.
Just a Terry Gilliam style Monty Python cardboard cutout could work?
A router would seem most likely ?
Which would still be Boaty McBoatface if they were honest about it ;o)
