true its over thought technical solution. What proportion of litter are mcdonalds responsible for? youd have to tag all packing and everything in the packaging!
Better to make it more socially outrageous than it is now - like the sign in the article.
Farmers use it here to fertilize their crops which is why we only end up with one set of tramlines through fields rather than half the crop chewed up by Jethro driving erratically whilst pissed up on cider.
farmers use ecrypted military gps? no wait , they use the free one - same as all the other examples given above. We dont need this new thing
no , seriously , why *do* we need this?
For the military? what do they need 1cm accuracy for over 30 ft accuracy?
Why do the military always get better stuff than the rest of us?
I could use 1cm accuracy for my drone delivery business.
Dont the US already give us military spec GPS? even though I'm sure we can effectively bomb far away people on garmin gps accuracy
and performed sobriety checks, which I passed easily.
Why do american cops still persist with this stoneage method? especially when they have a breathalyzer??
Its no wander they messed up the meth test , they still havent mastered checking for alcohol!
What does "Switch to Manual!!" actually mean?
Is it possible for software to "Get the fuck out the way?"
It isnt on my car - a 28 year old sports car - it still has a little computer running software deciding how much fuel to put in and which / when spark plug to fire , and when it fucks up , as it has a few times locomotion ceases.
My cay at least has a throttle cable - most dont these days , and neither do these planes.
Do people honestly believe they're appointed to their respective positions because they have knowledge in that field?
I know for a fact they arnt, they have a special procedure to make sure a minister knows nothing of the job he is in, cant be blamed for anything and can be diverted out of the public glare if neccassary.
Its called "Cabinet Reshuffle"
"Me neither, but also mainly not all of us have disposable income enough for such mostly useless frivolities."
I have , surprisingly ,given the state of my career , but whats the effing point?
I dont dim the lights or add a jar of coffee to my shopping list nearly enough to enroll the help of a robot with the comprehension ablilities of Manuel from Fawlty Towers.
Remember: Home taping kills music
Probably explains why we don't have music today
My god you're right. We killed music. Now the only music we get is produced by those TV appeals aired on a Saturday night where they use phone in donations to bully halfwits into singing for our amusement.
"The worst case is coming across something you know you will soon need. You move it to a "safe" place. Then afterwards you find you can only remember where it was originally - and the "safe" place eludes you."
I always think "where would i expect to find this later on" , and have to put it in that spot, even if thats not where i want to keep it!
I must get round to ditching all of the <1GB drives sometime
its not just the 1gb...
its all the IDE ones ...
and most of the Satas too.
if you've got a lot of 160gb sata discs lying around you cant pile them all together to make a decent storage area - there arnt enough sata ports/controllers .
On this logic I declare any Hard disc smaller than 1tb redundant.
Its a balancing act.
I'm on the lean side , due to lack of space . 2 boxes of cables (scarts and other older ones have been chucked) 1 box vinyl . one shed containing a dismantled car that is the same model as the one i drive .
1 box misc pci cards etc
You have to weigh up the odds of someone wanting to pay you money to show up with a parallel floppy drive that only works in xp against the cubic inches it takes up.
We all wish we had a magic shed like the Tardis... but most dont.
Software ans files on the other hand.... hoard as much as you want! Hard drive storage is massive and so cheap you can keep anything! (within reason)(a 100 disc blu ray collection is not "within reason" - keep that on tye discs it came on)
While this bounty program is in place I would be worried that any internal staff of questionable morals coming across a bug would, rather than fixing said bug would look to strike a deal with an external pen tester to share a bounty.
maybe the bounty comes from whichever programming team is reponsible's wages!
I authored an error message in a system for retrieving info from remoter PCs that went:
"Cannot proceed because the machine we have connected to is not XXXXXXXX , its YYYYYYYY , this is because of a DNS error AGAIN!!!, please get zzzzzz to fix it".
and that was rev2 , with the swearing taken out.
It would take me quite a while to unpick that paragraph , even if I had some idea what the hell you're talking about in the first place, as it stands i dont. I've checked the comments above for people dissing Newton , and been back to read the Newton part of the article (too much time on my hands) and I still dont know what prompted your outburst.
maybe its just me. can anyone elaborate?
