Why is El Reg pretending to be a job/recruitment site ? Either have a proper vacancy section or don't bother.
S!!t or get off the pot.

"Wagering on outcomes not related to sport."
Like shorting or going long on stock ? That is definitely a wager, and under this law now illegal on the internet because you cant guarantee the transcation does not cross state lines.
Make the perps serve the sentences consecutively and watch high frequency traders rack up a million year sentence in five minutes.
Gene Kranz himself said in an interview that the large heavy lift rocket was the wrong approach. Its so expensive that they'll only every be able to afford one a year .
A better solution would have been a cheaper smaller rocker and assembling missions in orbit. That give you multiple launches, in space time for crew and experience at on orbit assembly. All stuff which is valuable skill and can be transferred to the inevitable change of program when a new administration comes in.
You see this kind of article every ten years and it always boils down to "in the future you technology X will save you from having to spend that money on expensive developers." It NEVER happens.
Remember in the mid 90's when visual programming languages would mean you could write software without the need to code ?
Remember being told that all those cheap offshore developers were going to take your jobs and there would be almost no domestic developer jobs in the 2010-2020 timeline ?
I saw the "Prelude to Axanar" video on youtube last year and thought it was awesome, and I was so looking forward to the final version.
Several other fan produced not-for-profit productions have been made and paramount seems to be OK with them so long as nobody profits from it. I dont really know why Axanar is different. However having seen the the other productions I suspect Axanar is actually being sued for being too good.
IDK why Paramount didnt just buy them out .
which always translates into
"no-changes-on-a-friday-unless-somebody does their 'baby wants is rattle' impression and cries loud enough and then you'll have to fix it I dont care how long it it takes and yes the person who asked for the changes does get to go home on time but you dont."
It's the wrong kind of rocket - with their budget they'll be lucky to launch two a year and it'll take ages to do anything.
It would be much better to have more smaller rockets and a reusable crew capsule. Assembling things on orbit in multiple launches would give more flight time for Astronauts and experience in orbital assembly.
How are you going to learn about orbital assembly and evolve new techniques if you just package everything up onto one rocket ?
I was originally hoping to upgrade to an S5 (from an S3) but when I looked I didn't find the features that enticing.
Fingerprint Sensor - Useless and cracked within a week of launch.
Waterproof - I seriously doubt that halfway through a two year contract those covers over the ports will still be tight and waterproof.
I went for a Note 3, the large screen nicely sits in my heat slab hands.
If you don't allow ISP's to throttle certain *cough*netflix*cough* services they there is no way to entice customers to use anybody's VPN service to bypass their throttling.
Seriously if you get the connection you pay for why would you want to pay another party so you can actually use it?
The one thing this show didnt mention was the long term effect on the end users and the population at large.
I think the biggest achievement to come out of the British home computer boom of the 80's is the number of developers this country currently has. I can think of entire development teams that wouldn't exists if you wiped the ZX Spectrum out of history.
Bought a new laptop recently and it came with 8 installed on it. A very quick instlall to 8.1 yet still it's rubbish.
All those shortcuts like Alt+F4 no longer work, I actually paid £££ for a 3rd party app to get a proper start menu, and it looks and feels just slightly worse that windows 7.
It's on borrowed time - one big screwup and it goes straight to linux.
Do you really think we'll get anywhere near a reasonable debate in this country?
The day we get anywhere near that some terrorist activity will occur and news media will spend days days pandering to it demanding that more be done to stop them. I didn't think it a coincidence that that army drummer died just after the communications bill was shelved.
I think we need to help those suffering from Technical Ability Disorder (TAD).
TAD sufferers can be the fairly mild type, who need to call help when the printer jams or routinely double click everything. But there are so many serious sufferer's, the one who can't use series links on satellite boxes, or send every email in capslock with no full-stops. These are the full Untechincals. As the world moves on they must either have constant help or retreat to Amish like homes where technology rises no higher than the electric oven.
