When Trump retires he'll be the first American President to be awarded the "Order of Lenin"
Well.........if the rumours are true, TPP SystmOne is based on code copied from the long-dead EMIS-PCS clinical system.

Just like Microsoft
I've never seen an unbranded server yet, except for ones I've assembled from bits.
All the servers I've seen have been branded, one way or the other. I'm convinced "white box" servers are close to mythological
you can turn this ever-present phone presence on, but can you turn if off? Can it be remotely initiated? Running your phone through your TV and potentially having it on 24/7 really does have shades of 1984
You can bash away as much as you like, but you won't get anything out of it
Presumably he did it each time after a night in the pub.
Says a lot about Australian beer
One day, China, the Arab block, Russia et al are going to turn this on its head.
All they need to do it announce a new regime of sanctions against Israel, and then fine any US company that breaches them.
Apple, Microsoft, most of the defence companies.......a $billion or two from each would soon make the trumptons sit up and think
"Slurp the Clueless"
That sounds like the name of an old Viking chief

Well if you crowd-fund me I'll start the X7 Reuseable Rocket Corporation
I'm sure there would be more chance of developing a workable product than that bunch with the Sinclair Spectrum retread
If everyone in the USA and Europe would give me £10 I'll guarantee a flyable demonstrator one day.
In which case they should scrap it, recycle the materials and fly one they can reuse.
If they could recover it and won't, then they should be prosecuted for littering.
Dropping lumps of toxic waste into the ocean simply isn't acceptable any more. Recovery should be the new legal minimum
Active for nine years and only just spotted?
And that is why PWC are shite auditors
They have no idea of reality or truth
But then do any of the big accounting companies?
New Scientist article this week saying the drive doesn't work.
It does produce thrust, but not through any EM effect
that number is linked to this fake support company

DON'T call them
they're scam scum
I can see the BBC using this technology to match TV licences to users and geographic location
I don't understand why anyone went into this expecting a usable product. These delays shouldn't be any surprise.
In his heyday, Sinclair's products were all at least one of:
late, badly designed, hare-brained, faulty, unsafe, unreliable or just plain crap.
Why did anyone think this would be different?
"Midlands-based reseller Aria Technology "
Really? They're based in Longsight, Manchester
BAe might get upset over the "Skyhook" name.........
that was used by them for the planned (but never implemented) Sea Harrier crane launch system
Go back a few decades, stealing and burning small boats wasn't unusual.
It was done to get at the copper (=rustproof) nails used to build them. The nails would be sold as scrap
Swiss antivirus is like Swiss cheese

If it was sitting in the front seat I hope it was wearing a seat belt. Or maybe at 1 year old it should have been in a child seat
I can think of plenty of females who practice bum biting
No, you got that wrong.
More like every sentence he manages to complete starts with an exclamation. Usually an untrue exclamation.
I don't see the point of this.
Why not just run Linux natively?
Or if you need virtual machines, run Linux on Linux.
Surely the Chrome OS is simply an irrelevant complication?
is this it?
"I'm not really sure why it has them as it doesn't fit with the rest of the exhibits on naval aviation..."
It was the only air museum with a long enough runway close to Bristol
the e-mail retention policy was similar to what happened at Time Computers in the months before they went bust - except the retention period was 3- days
ALL e-mails over 1 month were deleted without warning or backup
If it takes off, the demand for beer will drop.
Most men only go to the pub to gawp at the barmaid's assets
The Desire range of phones came from HTC not ZTE
"Updated to add
SpaceX has now put the launch off until Wednesday, citing the need for further checks on the guidance, navigation and control systems."
Does it use a Tesla autopilot?
surely "system restore" is one of the boot options?
at least the yanks HAVE warning systems......ours got turned off years ago
Though what you were supposed to do it the alarm went off is anyone's guess
Hawkwind got it right: DO NOT PANIC!
So is the cargo hold going to be heated and pressurised?
"Kott’s ideas rest on the assumption that countries have obeyed a ban on autonomous weapons “beyond meaningful control”."
Weapons are increasingly going to be "fire and forget": it reduces the risk of hacking, and allows longer range attacks at a higher rate.
ISIS et al aren't going to obey any bans, any more than Russia is obeying any bans on chemical warfare
For some reason I keep thinking of the Yellow Brick Road when I see reports of East Texas
I'm making no criticism of you, your work, or your way of life. I'm not suggesting in any way that you should be stopped from working. If anything I'd prefer to see the system regularised in some way so that there's no room for the likes of the crooks at Backpage to make money through exploitation.
You're right about the difficulty of identifying who is / isn't trafficked / exploited. There's a fine line sometimes in deciding the truth.
But, yes I've been watching this for a few years now and I'm confident of the figures. Backpage was a criminals paradise: in most cases either the girls were victims, or the adverts were come-ons for the punters to get ripped off.
You use Adultwork. Good, the chances of a trafficking victim being on there are a lot lower and have reduced in the last year with the extra verification checks, but there are still some especially among the chinese / romanian / hungarian / russian girls. But they are relatively easy to spot.
As for other businesses, yep you're right. Car washes, farms, nail bars, cannabis greenhouses - they all need close attention.
"Only if you consider "trafficking victims" to be 'foreigners of the wrong colour'."
stop trying to create a racist diversion.
Its true the majority of girls on UK Backpage were Chinese/Brazilian/Eastern European
A minority were UK. The UK girls were less likely to be victims of coercion, but some certainly were.
But the simply numbers spoke for themselves: for instance the number of chinese girls on overstay visas forced to work off debts their traffickers had racked up for them
2012 Olympics - whatever the "fact based surveys" may have shown, there was a hell of an influx of Russian, other Eastern European, Brazilian and other girls into London - which was obvious from the numbers being advertised
no evidence I can safely publish
lets just say I spend a lot of time looking at this kind of data.
In this case I think the decision to take down the site was correct. Attempting to identify the girls and pimps and then rescue them would be too difficult for the reasons I gave earlier. This way they're taken off the market for a while and hopefully the pimp's replacement sales strategy will be easier to crack
If for instance they switch to Adultwork they'll be a lot easier to nail down
I can't comment about the USA, but a large majority of the UK Backpage escort adverts were for trafficking victims, not necessarily underage.
Because of the ease of placing ads on Backpage compared with the competition (e.g. Adultwork) with no checks or proof of identity or legality of the poster or girl, usually no photo (or if there were, they were stolen from other sites) the trend was for Backpage UK to be used by the Chinese and Russian (and to a lesser extent Romanian and other EE) trafficking gangs in preference to Adultwork or Vivastreet.
But trying to locate girls through the adverts would be hard: regularly changing phone numbers and addresses, very short-term adverts, fake photos, and the girls rotated between sites on a regular basis to make identification difficult. Many of the adverts only had an e-mail address, no phone number, making contact harder and making it much harder to track victims.
The shutdown of Backpage wont make much difference to the ability to track victims. If Adultwork or Vivastreet were shut down then the situation might be different.
Backpage = good riddance
What the hell is a sauna for if its not to have fun with the other sex?
or even the same sex in some places.......
still to expensive for a chinese brand phone
but who is going to spend £800 on a Huawei phone?
In the mind of most buyers, Huawei = Chinese = cheap
"Drones have become ubiquitous and deskilled to the point where any moron can operate one with little or no training. They pretty much fly themselves and they're cheap."
So why not just use trained pigeons if you want to blow something up?
Train a flock of pigeons to understand that military uniform=food
Attach small bombs, then let a few hundred birds loose. Would totally overwhelm the defences, would be cheao, and it would be a productive way to get rid of flying rats
does it keep rabbits and deer at bay?
Time to plant some in the garden maybe.
Lyme Regis used to have an annual Conger-Cuddling Championship
It was a full sized version of Devil-among-the-tailors, the pins being nine people standing on drums.
A large conger eel (or shark) was suspended from a crane, and used by the participants in turn to knock the "pins" off the drums
Personally I think old traditions like this should be part of the Commonwealth Games
