While Windows 7 wobbled, AI continued its relentless march at Microsoft


In the cases I want to use a switch I use PHP and a switch.

Or C and a switch.

Often a switch is the clearest and easiest way to do something, so what's the point in designing a language to stop you using one?

There's no technical reason not to have one in Python, it's deliberately awkward. Like incrementers, it's simply awkwardness for the sake of it. No i++? Why? Because someone decided to be awkward as their ego was too big to accommodate the best syntax.

Why would anyone want to use a language that's deliberately awkward?


Re: I'll bite....

The alternative to Python? PHP of course, it's many times faster to implement the same functionality as Python and works WITH you rather than AGAINST you. The syntax is also similar to C.

Nothing wrong with Javascript on the client side either, no need to 100k of JQuery if you're not ego surfing.

Many of us find Python sucks for the precisely the reasons I dislike it. I program scripts to do a job, not as a chance to investigate the missing functionality and bizarre and unnecessary syntax rules it presents.

Of course if you get paid by the hour and are a masochist then Python is indeed perfect, especially when several different versions are involved, some Mako and Pylons just to make it totally impossible to maintain.


Never understood the attraction of python.

Such a sucky language designed to slow down R&D, it's best claim to fame is lack of switch statements, no incrementer and the most types of list/array/tuple/dictionary etc. of anything.

It's truly a dreadful and hideous thing used only be people who don't know any better.

50 years ago: NASA blasts off the first humans to experience a lunar close encounter


Re: What moon landing?

Perhaps you should be asking what Rumsfeld had to do with it.


Re: What moon landing?

You are attempting to prove a NASA story with NASA data.

You mention splashdowns - have you found the NASA chart giving the accuracy of them yet? Always on time, always just the right accuracy for the press. Even in AS13 calculating burn times in a tumbling craft.

Avoiding the inner band is impossible - they would have had to take off from one of the poles to do that. The inclination of their orbit to the equator was not that large - 18 degrees IIRC.

You also fail to state the distance you consider the Van Allen belts extend to, nearly 6 hours each way is given from the log if you use some of the bigger estimates. Also back then the belts had been boosted by Starfish Prime etc, the US's misguided attempts to disperse them.

Chest X-rays are well within accepted levels of exposure but still fog the film. Radiation doesn't suddenly end with the belts, it rains down continually on the moon and re-radiates from the surface. The aluminium film canisters merely change much radiation into X-rays, further fogging the film.

Additionally the question of Solar Flare Roulette has to be considered given the solar maxima back then.

As I said before, mere facts and evidence can't change beliefs, sorry to say you'll always believe in the Apollo fairy story and always wonder why they NEVER go back. EVER. That's your beliefs being rejected by reality.

Bush junior told them to return and 15 odd years later they still can't get into orbit. I guess your answer for the miracle of the 1960s was that the men were better, despite the pitiful tech and dud rockets. Well, at least they knew which restroom to visit I guess.

BTW Buzz confessed on video that they didn't go. A small girl caught him unaware with a question asking why they never went back.


Re: What moon landing?

Ignorance is fine John as long as you keep it to yourself.

However when you combine it with your faith based belief in Apollo it leaves you unable to respond to any of the technical arguments. That is why you have to insult and slur someone who knows exactly how everything was faked and has the knowledge and arguments to back it up.

It must be a constant puzzle to you why NASA never 'since' crossed the Van Allen belts and why they suddenly dropped their plans for a moon base. They also dropped the Saturn V, which you think was 'mad' but Rocketdyne knew was inevitable. Rocketdyne BTW were the best rocket scientists in the western world at the time and they got 1e6 lbs thrust out of each F-1 after 5 years of tinkering. Then Von Braun strolls up and gets 50% more? Not in this reality he didn't and for very good reasons.

The BIG Apollo lie is made out of lots of little lies, each inconsistent and laced in neatly to the next lie. Once you start seeing through the lies you notice a pattern. Most of the NASA staff were duped, only a few knew that the Saturn V's landed in the sea and the astronauts took the out of sight tower escape chute before launch, and were then pushed out of a transport plan for splashdown.

That's why they were all so miserable.

So be fair to the USAF the splashdowns were accurate even for being pushed out of a plane, 1.0 nautical miles for Apollo 13 IIRC, amazing for a back-of-an-envelope blind GPS free projectile in a broken CSM.

Even films are more realistic today than the Apollo story. And remember those fog free photos subject to what NASA describes as 'as much radiation as a few chest X-rays'.

You should be less trusting of government, literally the same people (Cheney, Rumsfeld) were involved with the cover up that lied to you about Iraq. The SAME known liars.


Re: What moon landing?

So your evidence they went is that the USSR didn't say they didn't?

A double negative?

You obviously know none of the background, the USSR ships were kept away from the launch site and the USSR got a 10 year grain shipment in return for their silence. The USSR lied too - notice zero Gagarin photos of him ever in a spacesuit, and his mysterious death?

What you saw from the Lick was something, could be anything, it hardly proves they orbited the moon does it?

Your trajectories are wrong BTW, there is no way of 'missing' the belts given the noted trajectories of Apollo as stated in the Flight Plan or Flight Journal. The Flight Journal also gives orbital distances and times, they were in the belt region for over 5 hours each way. READ it.

Speaking to one of the actors is not evidence either, their well-being and that of their families and pensions, combined with peer pressure and their training gave them no reason to tell you the truth.

You can't handle the truth.


Re: Ground controllers hurriedly improvised

Indeed, the whole Apollo program was hurried and rushed.

Grissom pointed out the failings a number of times: he was THERE, he KNEW, have you READ what he said?

The world's most complicated project with a huge number of brand new technical challenges and most failures would lead to rapid death. Think of a project you were involved in that was similar: have any bugs?

Yet nothing ever really went wrong. Everyone got back. The rushed, untested LEM, perfect. The LRV, zipping around carving turns like you just can't do on dust in 1/6g. Astronauts with no interest in space or the stars going there to take thousands of photos.

The only mishaps were NASA destroying original telemetry data and lunar video data. Because on mankind's biggest ever trip celebrated around the world: why would they value the tapes ??

Then their next move afterwards: to ditch the F-1 SaturnV rig and build an entirely different, less reliable, more expensive launch system instead. So much for 'brilliance' of the Saturn V, obviously NASA didn't believe in it - so why do you?


Re: What moon landing?

The truth doesn't have an angle, lies, fraud, hoax and deception have angles. Angles to distract from Vietnam, angles to distract mass protests, angles to 'beat them ruskies', angles to spend taxpayers money on missile and ICBM testing, angles to help military satellites and surveillance.

The NASA narrative is nonsense. Non sense. None of it makes any sense. Your problem is that you have uncritically accepted this nonsense and spent exactly 0 minutes thinking about how realistic any of their story is.

Look at the timescales alone - preposterous. In 1967 Grissom hung a lemon on the rig, you think you know more than Gus Grissom? Seriously?

Think about the radiation - just a few chest X-rays says NASA. Well try giving their Kodak film a few X-rays and see how fogged it gets: yet none of the film is fogged, even slightly. The blacks are so good not even fake stars can be seen.

Mention just one thing you think was genuine and I'll take it apart for you in a few seconds. They didn't just fake part of it, they faked ALL of it. The LIE is so BIG you still can't see it.

From the obsolete 1962 vintage F-1 engines to the size of the LM door and hatch to the suit coolant to the radiation to the unreliable rushed tech. to the impossibly precise splashdowns to the carefree attitudes on the moon to the serious sulking in the press conferences to the leaving NASA and reclusive living to the visual and sonic defects to the LRV mistakes: it's all a very poor fake.

Obvious fake is obvious.


Re: What moon landing?

If you'd done any research you'd know. I pity your ignorance.

I guess you believe in Iraq's WMDs and Libya's 'threat to the west' too.


What moon landing?

Wrong, NASA and your job is to provide some evidence that they went.

The photos and videos are garbage, the 'soil' proven fake, the 'reflectors' disappear in a puff of maths and logic, so what's left? NASA - a Defense Department of a government known to have a chronic lying problem - tells us so?

Your ignorance of Apollo is so deep you don't even know the right questions to ask. NOTHING of Apollo is straightforward or as described, the technology simply wasn't there and it isn't today either.

You may want to look up NASA's chart of landing accuracy and contemplate that accuracy with a pre-GPS world of a falling projectile from an orbital speed of thousands of miles per hour.


Re: Remeber thHillary started the wall, not Donald

The inconvenient fact is that Hillary was the starter of the wall.

As well as exterminating Gaddafi and plunging Libya back into the stone age.

But don't let facts get in the way of your programming to attack Trump.


Re: LM? Unwieldy? It just looked like it.

The F-35 is of course rather similar, except much easier of course.

Yet the LM worked perfectly and never went wrong. Ever worked on a project like that?


Such great men they spent the entire press conference sulking and claiming the stars were not visible.


Funny how people still believe this old fictional tale.

"I was young and it was on TV all blurry so it MUST have been true".

I guess you also waited up for Santa Claus?

Facts and evidence don't matter, belief is all. Another 50 years of NASA's inability to cross the Van Allen belts.

Apple breathes new life into MacBook Air with overhauled 2018 model


Re: Let's compare ...

I did EXACTLY that last time.

Looked at all the USB-free Macs in the Apple Store, admired their Tripwire Power connectors and then walked into the department store next door, selected a nice Lenovo on Easter-Sale pricing and bought that.

The Yoga 2-1 I have was better built than the old Airbook, had 256GB + 8GB, an i7 and was STILL way cheaper than the 2010 spec Airbook, which was my last buyable Apple.

All Apple had to do was upgrade the screen on the Airbook to 1080p and leave the rest alone, I mean how difficult was that? A $Trillion company unable to understand how to fit a USB-A socket and use Magsafe? Has everyone with an IQ in double figures left Apple just to be left with drooling marketroids and brain dead accountants (I'm looking at YOU Tim)?

They sell useless £1000 iPhones, bizarre square watches with 1970s styling and no decent computers, so sad to see a company with so much potential fall. The Apple share-price reflects this failure too, if they stopped their share buybacks if would fall off a cliff.


The Dell XPS pricing used to be below Lenovo, then it shot up, I wonder if it's tied to the euro?

The System76 looks a nice box as it's Linux native, and some Asus and Lenovo look good.

The main Laptop requirements are (in case Timmy Cook is reading, stuff to LEARN here Tim:):

* Runs Linux (Debian or possibly Ubuntu) or Unix (OS/X)

* 11-14" screens at 1920 x 1080

* USB-A x 2 for temporary disks, CDs etc etc etc.

* 8GB memory minimum

* 2-8 core processing (i5+)

* 8 hours + battery

* Reasonably priced, standard and upgradeable SSD

* Repairable construction

The main desktop 'Mini' requirements are:

* Upgradeable CPU

* Upgradeable RAM

* Upgradeable disks (slot for SSD and slot for 2.5" or two)

* Network, USB-A and 'new trendy' sockets

It would also be nice if it had an Intel processor that wasn't crippled with the branch-prediction bugs that came with the last batch, perhaps AMD or ARM would be nice alternates.


Re: Mac mini SSD

So sweet?

But then hordes of people would buy them, my careful study of Apple's computer division over the past few years has indicated that making stuff people want to buy has been off the table for some time.

Want a nice upgradeable computer from Apple? A nice laptop with USB-A ports, magsafe and a decent screen?

No chance. Not while Tim Cook is there, he appears not to have a single tiny clue about the computer market, which is why when I needed a new laptop last time I bought a Lenovo. Better built, featured and priced, just a shame it's Windows and not Linux.


Ah - found it:


I only wanted a decent laptop to run *NIX on. Virtualbox+Debian under Win10 is way too slow compared to native *NIX, so it looks like after waiting for 8 years in hope of an updated Airbook I won't be spending my money at Apple. Hey, it was nice while it lasted.

Plus I can invest the money saved in the local pub economy rather than it sitting in Apple's ledger in some tax haven.

BTW thanks for the thumbs down, I didn't know my opinion was to be graded :D


So Apple have taken their one remaining buyable laptop (magsafe + usable USB sockets) and 'upgraded it' to stupid USB-C ports, no SD port but as compensation we get a decent screen at last.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Should I buy A: the old one with the 2010 screen, or B: the new one with useless ports?

Perhaps I'll go for C: a Dell laptop running Linux instead, as Apple seem to be DETERMINED to ruin their products and make them unbuyable.

That 'Surface will die in 2019' prediction is still a goer, says soothsayer


Re: Is there anything wrong with Windows 10?

It's not fast though is it?

Try running Virtualbox with Debian 8 inside it on a Win10 machine, runs like a dog even on a spangly i7 machine, Debian 8 runs 10x faster on an old i3 under Linux and is fast under OS/X + Parallels on an old i5.

The difference in speed between Virtualbox under Linux or Unix and under Win10 is epic.

Now that's a dodgy Giza: Eggheads claim Great Pyramid can focus electromagnetic waves


Re: It was aliens wot did it

Romans used much smaller blocks than the ancient Egyptians.

Your theory of aliens with space lasers is interesting but there is no evidence for that. Also why do you need aliens - the earth is as old as the surrounding planet and solar systems.

There is also no evidence however for the use of copper tools and round stones, the tools we are told were used: there simply wasn't enough time to use them given the number of cuts required and the population.

Now buy a lump of granite and try attacking it with a copper chisel: Go on.


Re: Has The Register been hacked by the Express ?

Actually the pyramids are mentioned exactly NOWHERE in any ancient egyptian writings or carvings.

Your belief of documentation doesn't make it so.


The fact no mummy has ever been found in a pyramid might be one.

Also the total lack of decorations or writing: things that are on both walls and floors of the actual tombs.

Spooky huh?


Re: Batteries not included (or used, ever)

The insides of both the pyramids and tombs would be quite dark, is there evidence of oil torches or candles being used to illuminate the interiors?

It's an interesting problem: eating carrots only gets you so far in the dark, even back then.

Perhaps they captured fireflies in the jars and they are not batteries at all.


Re: "building material with the properties of an ordinary limestone is evenly distributed"

It's described as a burial chamber but there's no evidence that was what it was built for. All the burial chambers discovered before, during and after that period are quite different and none of them are pyramids.

All we really know is that there's a big granite container with a corner missing, the missing corner is again a mystery because it's pretty well protected in the pyramid and rats would hardly be able to gnaw it away.

Guesswork isn't science: we don't know what that room or container was for.


Re: It was aliens wot did it

I don't know about the aliens as I wasn't there, perhaps there were aliens and we are their descendants - how would we know? The Sumerians do appear to refer to some step event and new technology however - should we ignore that?, I don't know, it seems a bit rash to write them off - especially considering that the need for neolithic man to evolve/invent a method to carve and position 100 ton blocks of stone with millimetre precision was somewhat lacking.

As for the pyramids, we still have no idea what they were actually built for, and only vague guesses as to how they were built so we are hardly in possession of enough data to discount 'aliens'.

There is a myth that they are burial chambers but we've discovered the burial chambers made in those eras and they are quite different with many decorations and much writing, the pyramids with their odd electrical contacts, straight shafts and lack of decorations are rather more like an ancient machine.

Re: The 'Trust' Factor: Toxic Patches / Firmware Updates

I have a Dell C1765nfw colour and it works like a dream.

It also works on cheap Amazon and eBay refills which is nice, and does scanning and copying like an office one, it's very impressive.

I have an A4 photo picture of my cat from it in a frame and you wouldn't know it was from a laser.


Re: Printer inovation

After my Epsom head dried up and I had to bin a £45 colour ink cartridge + the printer I went to a Dell colour laserjet that wasn't meant for printing photographs but actually does a pretty good job: on any paper and doesn't run if it gets wet. I'll never go back to inkjet now.

HP is not popular for other reasons too: http://stophp.uk/

RIP John Young: NASA's longest-serving 'naut explores final frontier


And NASA's lies continue...

Amazing people still believe we went to the moon in 1969.

Wondering nothing at NASA immediately throwing away the SaturnV and re-designing it completely as the shuttle, a less reliable and less powerful lifting solution (without even the dual use of the superior Energia+Buran).

Then today NASA can't even get into orbit, let alone crossing the lethal Van Allen barrier.

We're supposed to believe John Young drove the Lunar Rover around the moon when clearly the lack of bounce, solid grip and need for a winch to launch it shows it was a 1/2 speed film of some sand driving.

This while the US was busy losing their Vietnam war of aggression and desperately needing some good news - and as if by magive we get some grainy 2nd gen video of an actor stepping down in a dimly lit studio that made the moon look smaller than the average back garden.

Hello 'WOS': Windows on Arm now has a price


Intel or ARM, Linux is still way faster then Windows

Microsoft's offerings always seem to be wading through treacle compared to Linux, ARM is better at many power related things but the main issue Windows has is being manacled to Microsoft updates and their hopelessly non-standard office systems: which are designed more to lock you in than to use.

ODF on Linux has always got to be a more efficient choice than running a bloated antiquated predatory OS and programs whose sole purpose is to lock you into monopoly software and suffer endless tedious updates. At least Win10 is fairly stable these days, a point that Linux reached 20+ years ago.

A decent Linux on ARM laptop would be the way forward.

NASA boss insists US returning to the Moon after Peanuts to show for past four decades


Re: PLEEESE go back, just for our sanity.....

A flatard?

No sceptic of the Apollo moon landings thinks the earth is flat, the flat earth movement is a NASA device to destroy discussions about the Apollo landings, nothing more.

The real problem sceptics have is the amazing time scales, the incredible luck of everything working, the immunity to radiation, the dud SaturnV being so great but dumped straight after, the dodgy photos without bracketing exposure, out of focus shots, the invisible stars, the bizarre LRV behaving like it was on earth and their inability to jump, the re-used backdrops and the weird early 'pool of light' photos.

Then there's NASA, 'losing' the telemetry tapes and failing to make simple uncut videos and films of Apollo launches and docking available on their website.

Then there are the astronauts, the Apollo 11 crew sullen and miserable at the press conference, resigning soon after and living in obscurity.

The naive are free to believe in these fantastical stories from NASA, but don't insult the majority who doesn't believe everything their government tells them, especially after the Iraq and Syria lies.


Re: Where's the money?

The amount of money Project Orion has swallowed over the past 18 years was well in excess if the money required to return to the moon if Apollo was real.

18 years later project Orion is still afraid of the Van Allen belt and has just figured how to pack a parachute in their bizarre Apollo-lookalike conical craft - and has YET to even put a man into Low Earth Orbit.

The Apollo story may have fooled enough people at the time but today it only fools the naive and gullible while making manned space research very difficult. Look at what NASA have built: A manned space rover that looks like an egg with no idea how to get it to the moon.

Re: Stuff Like This Should Be Illegal

Very true, but of course in the middle of Vietnam, the cold war and civil rights marches NASA told us the exact truth about Apollo.

Because even though the moon missions remain heavily classified today we can be sure that Langley would never lie to us. Oh no.

Re: Arthur C Clarke and 'The Sentinel'

Planetary atmospheres are formed from outgassing from the surface. On the earth subsequent biological processes have modified surface outgassing to modify the atmosphere too.

The key to atmosphere is to capture the gasses from the surface, for that you need a global magnetic field strong enough to divert the solar wind, which causes the atmosphere to form and also forms a double stage radiation shield which encourages life.

So if the moon ever had a decent global magnetic field - which it almost certainly did at one point early on - it would have had an atmosphere, the same with Mars. Venus has a decent magnetic field and therefore has an atmosphere, but the heat means that it's quite unlike earth's: it's too near the sun for it to be benign which is why heavy gasses like CO2 dominate.


Re: But NASA still haant found....

The A11 story/journal says that they took off and went into a stable earth orbit "the orbital period is 1 hour, 28 minutes, 16 seconds" according to the journal.

They then did a burn that took them nearly 6 hours to get from 1000 miles to 6000 miles away from earth, past the belts.

You and your lovely diagram claim that they could accelerate from a 90 minute orbit out to 6000 miles and miss the belts entirely like a helicopter, but the Apollo boosters simply didn't have the power to leave the earth in under 90 minutes (< 1 orbit) as the diagram suggests: it took nearly 6 hours according to NASA, which would entail a spiralling orbit as the journal describes in detail.

Of course as the distance increased the orbit would slow like a ballet dancer opening her arms, but it would happen gradually so I'd still expect around 4 decent orbits - orbits that are impossible to dodge the belts from.

Therefore they must have spent a considerable amount of time in the middle of both belts according to the NASA journals, which frankly trump your diagram.


Re: Bacteria are not space aliens

You are a triumph of belief over science, and your emotions are showing.

The evidence clearly points to a sound stage on earth, have you tried actually looking at the NASA pictures??

There are AS15 or AS16 pictures with orange juice stains on the reticule of the camera that appears after they stop for a film change on the lunar surface. As their suits leaked orange juice I'd suggest that wearing one was roughly equivalent of not wearing one at all, even with the fictional cooling systems they had which clearly didn't stand a chance of working either.

You'll also notice that none of them ever jump properly high and they always waste 20 minutes winching the lunar rover down - which on the moon should only weigh < 40kg and is therefore an easy lift.

Then there's the cornering of the lunar rover - smooth tyres on dust (sand) with 1/6th the downforce on earth yet going around corners like it's on rails. Scientifically impossible - it would be like driving on ice.

Use your brain, not your emotion and belief.

"Surely the best solution to people being lied to is to educate them to recognise the lies."

There are chemical weapons in Douma, we need to bomb Syria.

Russia poisoned the Skripals.

Seriously, do think the government want's a nation of people able to spot lies??

The biggest lies come from government. Look at mossad's 9/11 (Ref. Christopher Bollyn's videos) - blamed on Saudis so we attack Afghanistan (a war still continuing today), then we attack Iraq for their WMDs Blair and Straw lied about . Then we attack Syria and sanction Iran - countries who have been fighting ISIS for 5+ years and when they clear their land and all the remaining ISIS people are in US/Israeli occupied land we bomb them for fake news about chemical weapons plants that the OPCW already told us were not there and failed to find any trace of later.

Lies are the way our government works, they will NEVER educate people to spot them.

I miss the old days like the Gulf of Tonkin and the moon stories - at least they tried to make it look convincing. Today these fake narratives are so bad they need to censor all discussion of them.
