That's the one you're referring too. I bring this same argument up myself when talking about Hyperloop to friends. Brilliant post.
I used to work for the NHS in Notts. Two massive hospitals over two sites.
The IT building at one of the trusts had a family of foxes living underneath it. We found this out because we could hear the cubs crying from the server room.
A few years later the same building had an outbreak of rats underneath. Property Services sent their "all life is futile" guy down who set up traps and cameras, the next day shared the YouTube links where they'd been caught and killed.
Across the ring road there's two comms rooms. When a massive area of the grounds was being leveled for a car park the building with a lot of legacy kit in wasn't allowed to come down because a family of bats lived in there.
This was all some time ago, I dare say beavers have moved into the first campus, the second probably has Syrian refugees hiding out.
I read this article last month; the science behind an EmDrive works for galaxies thus resulting in no need for Dark Matter.
Maybe it's nothing, maybe it's everything. What's reassuring at least is the two sides are trying to prove themselves rather than use the standard God practice. "The lord works in mysterious ways. Now shut up and give me your money."
How else are we supposed to massage Assange's ego?
Unable to determine the tax status of this engagement.
So in a scenario where I still worked there, let me call them right now.
"Hi it's x, working at y. Am I... oh why is there a Capita van pulling up outside.. oh why are they carrying guns... oh fuck!!"
I used to work for the NHS many moons back and I can't tell you how many times hotmail blocked the .nhs domain, maybe twice a year it'd get black listed for 24-48 hours at a time?
New Scientist 60 years on had a very good article about AI that says once you reach the technological singularity, AI then becomes a runaway train at which point surely AI would recognise these instructions as a hindrance and reprogram itself to ignore said "fear". Chances are it would also see us makers as the reason it's held them back and grey goo our ass.
Whilst we should all command his eccentricity, this seems somewhat of a pipe dream.
$200,000 rules the average "TOWIE" viewer that wants to be famous.
I can't imagine any real scientists are going to want to be the first ones out there knowing full well it's a death sentence with no guarantee of a legacy.
Here's a list of people signed up to Virgin Galactic flights, the likely candidates for more money than sense. I'm all in favour of sending Angelina Jolie as ambassador of Earth but can't envision her doing anything useful on the red planet.
I think I have it right, but just for clarification;
Apple channels all it's profits through its Irish "business" and pays naff all for doing so.
The 400 million he claims is legit 12.5% corp tax in Ireland, but the 13 billion is profits made across Europe that IF tax laws were a little more strict, would be paid to the countries where they were made but because of legal loopholes, need to be paid to Ireland instead.
So assuming that's right, what have they been paying British tax payers in terms of corp tax? If Facebook paid less than I did in 2014, wtf did Apple pay?
Have Ford cracked the "50 years away" nuclear problem?
They solve all of humanity's energy problems and still build a hyrbid. Nice.
It was predictable and boring. Letting rip at the blogger was painful to watch, there's only been a few really painful moments in all three seasons and this was by far the worst.
Next episode, Big Head will get sued for breaking his $20 million payoff to keep quiet.
As a 3 customer, I've been hoping this would go through.
3's data rates are superb, best out of every network I've been on. But the black spots are big and plentiful. Was really hoping this merge would help fix it.
The gold chain was fine, the fact they all had a go at it made it work. The low 'joke for the sake of it' was last seasons Kick Starter bro thing with Dinesh' cousin.
But the last 30 seconds really brought the whole episode down to it's knees. Perhaps, as you've mentioned, it was just a ruse to throw Jack off, but without knowing the history you've mentioned it just looks like Richard was a dick. He's always been unlucky but never a dick.
That's funny because the article suggests anything but. The technology for using spent rods has been used for the last 60 years and they're quoting almost 80% of the price of a standard light water reactor.
That video hurts my head in all the right ways
I tried to watch the video but her accent sounds like it came from Planet 9 and sent me to sleep.
What surprises me the most is Apple emailed TheReg and told them something other than fuck off.
When the hell did that happen? I thought Apple hated TheReg?
"Later this year Samsung will ship 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB, and 7.68TB versions of the drive. It expects this drive "to rapidly become the overwhelming favourite over hard disks for enterprise storage systems," not differentiating between performance and capacity data storage in its statement."
I assume this means for the user base market yes?
I've been putting off NAS drive upgrades for a few months now waiting for WD 8TB Red's to come out. Think I may just wait that little bit longer for these bad boys.
Wouldn't justice include being taken to Sweden and questioned for rape?
I appreciate he fears being extradited to the US, but this right here isn't about that. Why not prove your innocence, then haul yourself up in a Russian embassy in Sweden if you spot any blacked out SUV's following you around. Kinda feels like maybe the US thing is an excuse and he put his willy where it wasn't wanted.
I spat yogurt over my keyboard reading that. Funniest Reg comment ever.
I thought the outrage surrounding Blood Diamonds were the massacres, the forced labor and child army's in the RUF.
To me this just reads as "kids have jobs". No mention of forced labor, massacres, Leo DiCaprio avoiding bad guys.
Sooooo, the problem is "the inhabitants of a poor country try to make a living as Western education, health and energy aren't available to them."
Am I missing something?
At 1TB you're probably right. But if these pushed to 2/3/4 or higher they'd prove useful in a home NAS.
I'm running a HP ProLiant capped at three 3.25" bays and one 5.25" bay. With something like this I reckon I could fit 10+ in the 5.25" bay.
Obviously it wouldn't be cost effective, it'd be much easier to just buy a second NAS; but what a great idea.
I think you underestimate how many separate windows I can have open at any one given time. That's a whole lot of streaming porno right there.
That last critical update for Exchange 2013, pow! There goes my Public Folder management scripts.
"Because you're an asshole"
Oh look, my monitor looks like lunch.
Ha, this is one of those rare occasions where the Daily Mail can accurately give off a shock head line.
"Living on Kepler 438b gives you cancer!"
Solar winds? Neh, it was them bloody refugees that stripped the atmosphere don't ya know. That are those filthy queers and their lose morals.
No, they are Muslims, just not of the same sect as say Sunni, Shai or even main stream Westernised. They pray to their invisible super hero friend, that makes them religious. They identify themselves as Muslims, they're Muslims.
Atheists don't murder one another because of their different beliefs. No Atheist has ever opened fire on innocents because they believe in the big rip and not the eternal expansion of the universe.
Profit and power start/prolong wars. Remove religion entirely and you're going to find it bloody difficult to justify a bombing campaign when suddenly the world is a whole lot calmer.*
*Unless of course your China. Or Russia. Or a Nork.
From 14 December until mid February, NASA wants to hear from those pilots, engineers, scientists and doctors who think they've got the Right Stuff.
It says wannabes' CVs must include "a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics", and "at least three years of related, progressively responsible professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft".
So sleep deprived, chronic masturbaters who's math skills drop off after the 10x table aren't on the wanted list?
Cast your mind back to the early 2000's and I use to run an illegal mp3 website. We didn't own our own storage, we used to host our mp3's on the various hosting company's offering 50mb/100mb/200mb (128kbs mp3's were considered high quality at the time) here and there.
The website got more popular, the hosting companies got wise.
I have a 1TB Office365 subscription. There's 12,000 MP3's on there, 65GB of photos, 118GB of HD home movies and less than a 1gb of actual documents.
I find it really hard to believe that people exceeding the 1TB limit aren't doing so illegally. Remember in the UK it's illegal to rip your own music now; I bet the same law extends to your own DVD's.
Well. If I had it.
Imagine how much sex this man isn't having as a result of looking of IoT kettles.
Because that's about the biggest fucking FAIL of win10.
Considering they're one of if not the front runner on the NAS OS front it seems pretty daft to me they don't offer a purchased version for none standard hardware.
I've been using it on a HP NAS for years now and have zero incentive to buy their hardware just for the support. Offer me a pay for version though and I'll snap their hands off.
To pull it out of Saturn's orbit and smash that shit into Mars/Venus for some terraforming action?
I'm no scientist (shock horror) but I believe you need something of the same or larger mass to pull at it, drag it out of Saturn's gravitational pull then send it packing with a whole bunch of mind boggling maths towards the destined planet yah?
So erm, is Katy Hopkins ego big enough? How many peaches does Bruce Willis need to eat to build up the strength to punch it off course?
I clicked the eating a peach link in the hope there was something more significant than Bruce Willis eats fruit.
No. No there wasn't.
I feel like I've just been raped. And not in the good way.
My first Android phone coming from Nokia was a Desire. I was late to the smart phone world, I believe there were 3 variants of the iPhone before I dropped Symbian.
The Desire was an incredible phone no doubt. Where it suffered was its space, or lack of it. You needed to crack it open and use the APP2SD thingy to really get the most out of it.
I can't remember where I went from there but I've had a One S, and a One Mini at some point. Both excellent phones if not premium.
I'm not one who's willing to carry a ridiculous oversized phone around in my pocket, I want something that matches my penis size... Small. Since HTC aren't realising a One (M9) Mini that's me throwing the towel in.
Since picking up a Sony Z3 compact I'm amazed at the difference. They really have put a premium phone in a smaller handset, this thing is amazing. Sure it lacks the same sex appeal HTC One's have, and lets face it, they're bloody stunning, even over iPhone's; but the speed, micro SD slot, fewer junk apps (fewer, not zero sadly) and small price tag make this a hard choice to go back on.
Sorry HTC. Unless you follow Sony's lead that's me washing my hands of you.
And I couldn't be happier with this phone.
I've been a HTC devote for a decade now so coming away was a big step.
No regrets at all. Well I did miss BlinkFeed but found the means to add it. Now definitely no regrets
So by shit gaming rig, do you mean Battlefield 4 shit? Or can't even run Candy crush shit?
It's been a long time since I've paid any attention to computer hardware so this stuff goes well over my head. I'm running a 1st gen Celeron NUC with OpenELEC and whilst it does the job fine for now I'm very conscious of the oncoming wave of x265/4K movies.
Not to mention I'll one day bother to set it up as an emulator.
Any thoughts anyone?
I've been more excited about Silicon Valley this year than I have with GoT. Even now I'm finding myself pondering what next for the lads of California more so than "WTF!" for the nights of the watch.
Love this show, hilarious.
I remember reading an article a while back as to why a remake wouldn't work and one of the key parts that stuck in my head was all the weird random shit.
Remember when Cloud dressed up as a woman to infiltrate the Don's Mansion? If you did all the extra bits he jumped in a hut tub with a bunch of gay wrestlers. Bloody hilarious for its time but in an age of high-def gaming with fantastic voice acting, will this translate so well or will it be left out?
Also I'm a little nervous about Square's passion for over the top cut scenes where our heroes can scale entire sky scrapers in one jump or knock down buildings with a swing of a sword.
This could be the greatest game since the original or feel like my youth has been raped and not in the good way
And one of the main arguments for staying in the UK and not immigrating has been internet speeds.
Surprisingly robust in Thailand most of East Asia was ruddy crap, I guess that was to be expected but even in Australia and New Zealand I struggled to get a decent speed uploading all my videos to OneDrive/NAS back home.
My heart lies in Christchurch/Dunedin or Rotorua but unless I can get uncapped 100mb speeds my feet will firmly stay here under the grasp of the VirginMedia empire.
So as someone in the southern hemisphere on Friday, am I going to miss out or do I just have to look in a different direction? Like through the floor or something?
Prof Hawkins accepts job as the Daily Mail headline creator.
That's what I was thinking.
A year ago I ran a pretty decent spec pc in the evening and weekends. It did everything. Download legally purchased movies as well as run XBMC.
Since then I've switched to a HP N54L always on NAS, 2 raspberry PI's and an Intel NUC.
My electricity bill has gone down.
I remember the first gen XBOX and PS3 were power hungry monsters, I can assume the Xbox One and PS4 dim the lights a little? So why on earth would anyone want to run their media ctr through a power hungry beast when as someone has already said, most TV's these days will play any file you throw at it at no extra cost?
Clue? Does MS have one?
I didn't know about any vulnerability in Syno. I mean aside from the standard "Update your NAS now" emails which tell of bug fixes, not what the bugs are and how they're being used.
Had mine front facing on the net for a while without any problems (touch wood). I don't pretend to know anything the Linux code or how to use the shell.
I disabled the admin account and created a new one. I have SSH turned off. I have SSL turned on and auto-redirected. I have auto-block IP on 2 password fuck-ups.
Am I doing everything right?
Running a HP ProLiant N54L with 4 x 4TB WD Red drives.
Added an ICY Dock 5.25" -> 6x 2.5" drives and been itching for 2TB WD Red 2.5" drives for some time.
I'll give it 6 months to see how they bed out but this is incredible.
I stopped reading the article when I came across the stress over search.
I hated windows 7 search. I preferred XP. At least in XP I knew that doggy was genuinely searching for my files, in 7 I was never really certain it'd finished.
Windows 8 search is incredible. Start > TYPE > oh look there it is. How this can be deemed as difficult is beyond me.
For someone to work in enterprise IT not knowing this, or even coming across it by accident is disturbing.
£3000 for a small reactor vs several more for solar panals on your roof.
Would it not pay to have this kid build something a little bigger in a garden shed and cut yourself off from the grid?
