Popular misconception. It's tubas, actually.
Oh, you and your weird time zones...
Deploy the monoliths.
"In space, no one can hear you cha-cha-cha!"
"No bucks, no Buck Rogers."
You are Charles, Prince of Wales, and I claim my £5!
If anything, you could sell optical fiber cables made in spaaace to the hifi nuts at a good cut.
I like the picture, and would like to see more illustrations by El Reg's own graphic designer(s)? to accompany the articles.
Also, there is nothing wrong with beer money.
AI has become a tad overhyped?
That's a bit of an understatement, isn't it.
"his empire could come crashing down"
He'll just bulild another one. With Blackjack, and hookers.
And another thing for the autonomous car AI to learn.
But (quoted from the linked article): "The aircraft, which suffered a similar mishap last August, had completed a series of test flights on Friday and was moored near its hanger when it broke free."
You'd think they would have asked a boy scout how to make proper knots or something like that after the first mishap.
That was very interesting, thanks for the link!
Well, all I can say is: I never had problems like these when I was working with FORTRAN77 and punchcards.
Currently, for far too many people in the US "retirement age" equals the day they drop dead.
Brilliant. I didn't understand half of what was being said, but brilliant.
I think I'm more of a disrupter than a detracter.
Well, there goes the neighbourhood.
Added boni: better privacy, less manipulation. What's not to like?
Doctor Chandra has gone a light green colour, and Mrs Chandra has gone purple. They are both shouting a lot.
Me: Wish I could hear.
Doctor Chandra: Why don't you take a stress pill and think things over, dear?
"The center [...] will be operated by the Competence Call Center (CCC)."
Interesting search results ahead!
It's called Dragonfire - so why isn't the test centre somewhere in Wales?
Well, it does make a change from death by Powerpoint.
I would have loved to read another Dirk Gently story. Or five.
Aww, come on - it's all about les relations internationales. Also, we want to be cool and hip and whatnot. (I think the kids say disruptive these days.)
Anyway: Good news, everyone!
I'll wait with the calculations re cost of Diesel truck vs electric truck until relieable specifications are known; and ideally data from real-life test drives. So far: nice pictures, insufficient data.
Sort of. I was using a "portable" PC, a knockoff of the Compac cooler box, 486, plasma VGA display, you know the one I mean. I was using it at three different sites. One day during packing/transport/unpacking the switch on the PSU must have slided from the "230V" setting to the "110V" setting. Loud bang & magic smoke... Only I was using that machine for my engineering thesis at the time. Took a couple of allnighters to get back on schedule... Been checking the settings of switches ever since.
The series is great for non-native speakers to learn/improve upon their English. Especially if you combine the printed books with the audio books* - read it and hear a good pronounciation at the same time. It starts at an easy level and advances step by step.
The story is quite enjoyable as well, although the last book has a vibe of "just get it done and get it over with". YMMV.
Anyway, I plan to use the method for learning Italian next year (as addition to a proper language course). Harry Potter e la pietra filosofale. I know the story, so I won't get lost, and I don't mind reading it again.
* With all due respect to Jim Dale - it's got to be the Stephen Fry version.
I still miss SuperBase.
It is also both sustainable and more friendly to the environment, in more than one way. See? Going Green can be fun if you do it right.
Will it also have a guest spot at The Archers?
I'd like to see some data on the sand's properties. Not any type of sand can be used to mix concrete. The properties you want the concrete to have and the type of cement that is available are also vital factors. (Fun fact: Saudi Arabia has to import sand to make some types of concrete.)
Being able to build concrete structures on Mars would help longtime Mars missions, from landing pads to crew shelters etc.
Ideally Mars could have types of sand that cas cement-like properties, like puzzolani. The Romans used that for structures like the foundations of the Coliseum or the cupola of the Pantheon - 2,000 years ago.
... or the PFY messing something up, and not admitting it.
(In fake Australian accent:) "There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded Mosquito."
This is how it's going to be, more or less. Cars as a service. And don't think you'll be able to use them to go wherever you want whenever you want. You won't even get near the places where you're not wanted. Like places you can't afford.
My irritation was very real.
Some of the software I use features a "Panic Button" to click on.
Would that be helpful in any way in the event?
"If BAE plays silly buggers then do what we did in WW2 and subcontract the build of everything bar the engines to furniture makers."
Add a silly name, and you've got yourself a sweet deal with IKEA.
It's a fidget spinner. It's a smeggin' fidget spinner!
"I've said for many years that the next leader of HPE should come from within the company, and Antonio is exactly the type of leader I had in mind," Whitman told financial analysts on a conference call today, adding that the board of directors had approved the handover of power."
Interesting. I've said for many years that the next leader of HPE should be someone with a fucking clue.
