Only in the mids of the illiterate.
“CHIEF could carry on for another 30 years; it can be scaled. The problem is, it is very old and there are few people alive that can use it still.”
Well, when there is no one alive who can use it (is this because it was used by very few people or were the effect of using it so traumatic as to end lives early enquiring minds might like to speculate) then scaling is no problem. I could resurrect my old Science of Cambridge Mk 1(still works after a TTL transplant) and scale it at a vey reasonable cost.
and ps “I are‘nt dead”
but what is Trello and why should care?
Maybe your decision to remain anonymous without providing any insight might contribute?
But to be fair (and yes I did watch it) they gave a warning first. The comments in the front are worth it (probably not on a work machine)
I loved my Psions (multiple). Where they fell down is in neglecting the connectivity - even good synch for their devices. I remember (many years ago) investing in the comms pack - about £40 I seem to remember. I seem to remember it worked and even integrated with an early version of Outlook. But communications always seemed second hand (OK, just 3s and a 5) and I remember palm coming along and eating their lunch mainly because they synched well and people were prepared to adopt them and use something else for the remote terminal.
That lack of an idea really sunk them as far as I could see. But I do like the idea of the new palmtop - and am likely to buy one.
I notice that as of 18.00 UK time, equifax uk is still offline! Hmmm -
In the case of your CC company - they are ultimately responsible for at least the refund. Obviously it gets murkier with Amazon - but they have listed the goods. If they don’t have validation on quality and it fails and hurts someone then yes, they should be responsible. Otherwise they are taking all of the advantages of size, tax breaks etc.. with none of the responsibility
I agree. I understand the potential issues about privacy - whether intruded on by Nest (Google) or simple network monitoring.Having an extremely irregular schedule, as well as complications such as a couple of wood burning stoves and a somewhat peculiarly insulated house (a melage of building styles, restricted modification due to listing) and very variable occupancy with family, the Nest (or rather two of them) devices have made life a lot easier than the other controller on the market when I purchased it.
Costs are about 16% down on my previous regime - but with a much higher level of comfort and flexibility.
We imagine the people wearing it won't care: as long as it keeps them alive
While above is one end of the spectrum :-) I would imagine that keeping them at a good working temperature and dry is rather important. I believe that venting heat and managing humidity are issues for the human body in a space suit.
NSA - the gift that keeps on giving....
Police warned of a craze for boozy ice lollies during a local heatwave in Britain (doesn't happen very often
I see your 12 bore shotgun and raise you the 4 bore
And I'll raise you a "punt gun" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2NUCJOYRE8 -2 or even 1 bore monsters - 50+ ducks in a go.
I seem to remember that Crassus came to a sticky end - with his head used as decoration by the Parthians(?)
To be fair, just like Clinton (in the US) amongst others and Gove plus gawd nows how many other politicians in the UK.
or 900 times the mass of the Great Pyramid of Giza
as an aside - is this an extension of el Reg standards?
So do you not expect Google to retain tracking code on their/their advertiser's behalf? No thanks, in the words of a previous commentard "noad ublock"
A spokesman for His Royal Highness said "Bloody Tory Rag"
"Bloody Socialist Rag"
And then called for his whip and a horse....
A Turing Halting problem?
So record all of the possible permutations and combinations separately, and edit them together into a different format of media with the necessary links? It should be possible with HTML5...
And while you have solved the combinatorial explosion you will move on to the Halting problem?
I assume one of these bizarre beauties? https://postalheritage.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/2010_0541front-e1432290221169.jpg
I did that as well but found it difficult to read the small print
Well, they and others seem to have perfected the 'deliver a parcel' to mobile telephones that make Amazon drones look positively conservative.
I for one welcome our new womanly overlord (got to say I have not the faintest idea who she is(
Mansplaining I am told.
Well Murdoch is not necessarily a Conservative supporter either - it depends on the tone they are taking towards his busineess. While the conservative party seem to have lost the plot recently (taling iona purely 'hang opn to power policy') I can't believe they are so silly as to actually *trust* him
Buy t notice how much effort they pull t into backing away...
Your point on power is difficult to refute - well at the moment, and given government competence for a wee while to come. On the trailing wires, a program to install kerbside chargers might just work (confession, I have just applied to be allowed to do so outside my Edinburgh house - subsidised at the moment anyway).
I seem to remember that she had already tried the mainframe approach (a castle?)
No one said that recognising a hot dog is for the purpose of selecting it - rejection is a very good motivation!
Because the comment was about Apple's software pricing/share model maybe?
It's when she starts taking an interest in our education that you have to start worrying - "hey Rex, I'm off to the vets to get tutored'
Having bust the screen on my iPhone (OK....) before taking ti to be repaired at the local moderately cheap screen repairer I was careful to wipe the phone (not that any dodgy images I might have had would titillate anyone other than a landscape fetishist). I was very pleased to see them ask whether I had and suggest that if I had not I should do so and then bring it back. Now they might have been careful make them wary because of previous problems with their own staff (small), but I like to think that they were simply covering their (and their customers) backs.
Wull (as letters are required in a post) :-)
There is a lot to be said for no new law without repealing an existing one.
Much to be said for it - especially with much archaic (truly) British legislation that can be reinterpreted in new and often sinister (I use the terms carefully) ways. However as the recent 'repeal one bit of safety legislation, before we enact another 'Tory' approach, it does have problems.
Though the force appears to have met its revised target of getting 14,000 machines running Windows 8.1 – 14,450 are now running the OS – another 2,458 are still running XP, 7, 8.1 and 10. These are said to not be networked, and police sysadmins are apparently unable to separate out which ones are running what.
A remarkable precise number for non networked PCs (and don't try to persuade me that their inventory is up to date)
You never know - they might include attempting to wrest a few shekels from people based in the UK hiding their funds overseas?
But maybe not - a step too far?
Well unlikely for so many reasons, the first being that there is little chance they will ever be used operationally by the UK.
I think you will find they are remarkable similar. (I also have investments in companies that seem to pay no attention to their shareholders but do lionne to promote their execs chances at a gong)
Don't get me wrong, I love committees - they're a great way of getting the troublemakers all in one place. A small office with a lockable door and inadequate fresh air supply for instance - or even just up against a heavily pockmarked wall...
Sheer brilliance and good tactical thinking as well.
Trondheim or Tromso?
Actually, these days, its pretty much confirmed as having nothing to do with the Plague.
Ahh well another misconception shattered by people looking at the evidence!
I would mock people on talk talk, but I logged into my Zen account page for the first time in years and it says I'm on talk talk business. I've always had great service from Zen, but this worries me.
Where did you see this - my Zen account says nothing of the sort - but may be I am not looking in the right place?
Yes, another very happy Zen user here. Not the cheapest, but service is second to none (although I have not tried talk talk :-)
Not fair at all. While having no beef on the aircraft ugly!=effectiveness. Just look at the Warthog.
Well I appreciate both the daily rate (short term contracts - often only a few day but extremely well paid) and the fact that I can take my expenses (considerable) off my tax bill - both reasonable. I did recently refuse (it was subsequently re-offered) on a short government analytics contract where they wanted to put my on IR35 for 7 working days.
Let us assume we have a certain amount of money to spend on the issue, which essentially can be converted into putting people into isolation, quarantine and/or providing good separation between arbitrarily sized groups in the community (i.e. building walls and guarding access-gates). Plus further testing beyond the initial screen.
Ahh you don't fool me - I've seen all of the Zombie films and the inevitable consequence of locking them out....
Well conspiracy aside, the Grauniad is not exactly filled with joy about the prospect Corbyn (not that I am either - Hobson's choice to some extent) and a lot of the pieces they have published have been somewhat ignorant of facts and statements.
Labour give an impression about being equally gung-ho (if a little reserved on a few issues) on cutting or ties with Europe as a number of the hard-liners in the Conservative party.
And I say that with regret - we have just achieved a larger European-based workforce (OK by 1 it is a small workforce) than UK.
Except he is not exactly sleeping (except maybe on the job)
