Good to see her go
But surely this is hypocritical of Gordon as he was paying for his brothers cleaner?

"veering onto the wrong side"
Is that a euphemism??
"indulging in a coupling which "continued for several kilometres"."
Lucky girl :) normally it only continues for six inches :)
"He pleaded guilty to five charges, "including driving without a seatbelt""
But he did have air bags :)
I am sorry I will get my coat
An easy one I thought.
But it didnt understand and suggested gravity of water which it interprets as GRAVITY and WATERS two companies listed on the stock exchange and then compares them.
Whereas the first hit on google http://www.simetric.co.uk/si_water.htm gets the answer.
Its 1 by the way :)
Close but no cigar wolfram. It will be interesting to see where it goes, but I dont see it main stream any time soon.
Although I do agree with what you say Philosophy and Classics and way above degrees such as media studies, which is again leagues above such twash as Sports Science. Alot of my cousins are now at uni studying this hoping to get well paid jobs as glorified coaches for premier league footballers. Sadly I think they will be working in call centres.
Science and Red Brick for the win :)
The council said it had spoken to several camera manufacturers who confirmed that 704 x 576 is the industry standard.
We cant be using industry standards, becuase if we did any tom dick or harry could make the equipment, it would therefore be cheap. But our mates in industry wouldnt like that and they pay us lots, which we need as our expenses dont cover the cost of living any more. I mean who can live on 150K's worth of expenses these days, I ask you? Any way I digress please shut down your system and hand over large amounts of cash to MyMatesInc immediately :)
"Donaldson's annual report demanded that the UK recognise the effect of "passive drinking on society" and called for a shift in social attitudes "so that being drunk is no longer an aim of drinking nor socially acceptable"."
That I agree with. But just stick a big tax rise on alcohol, I am assuming here the gov keeps the cash and not tescos, does not tackle the problem and will not change the attitudes or behaviour of the people doing the drinking.
Please if you want to control what a small minority of the population are doing, which is destructive, then do it with out punishing the rest of us.
1 - I really hate people sueing for compensation, its just wrong, work for a living and accept your own mistakes and accidents do happen you dont need to blame some one
2 - Royal mail could say thank you and at least send the guy some flowers. If the van had hit somebody or something then they (their insurers) would have to pay up
"don't fucking post moronic comments, such as "he's misquoting Moore's law, etc""
its not a moronic comment to point out that the author has got one of the most fundamental laws in computing wrong. This is a computing site, and I for one would expect that one to be correctly quoted.
Rijndael is AES
Rijndael was the name of the cypher before it began a standard, the standard name being AES.
Although I do agree with your comments about it being insecure becuase the government uses it. Its an open source algorithm, which has been round for many years (I know I bought the book detailing the algorithm many years ago whilst at uni). As computing power increases it will become easier to break as DES and triple-DES the previous standards did. But as that happens it will be improved and replaced.
If you are worried about the security of any algorithm go and get a copy of the cypher, and if its not available in the open market its not secure. AES is available, many very bright and independant experts have validated it, and if you dont trust them do the maths yourself.
Of course specific implementations may not be secure becuase they can have backdoors and bugs in them, but hay you have the algorithm write your own.
I was with powergen in a rented house, I moved out and bought my own place. About 6 months down the line I got some letters from a debt collection agency, after about 3 of them and 3 phone calls, and faxing them the contract showing the date I moved out was before the period of the bill and also the landlords name and address they were still just chasing me.
I was still with powergen at the new house and one phone call to their complaints department explaining the situation and that if I heard anything other than an appology from the debt collection agency I would switch suppliers, sorted the matter out for me.
So well done PowerGen and bad on you BG.
"although the long-term social cost of alcopop-crazed juveniles sticking decorated war veterans in supermarket trolleys and throwing them off the roof of the nearest multi-storey carpark has yet to be counted."
Surely in an ageing population this is a good thing, think of the pensions, wont somebody please think of the pensions.
Yeap great idea get a load of highly paid business men to sort everything out, they must know the answers as they got us in deep in the first place and its not as if they are isolated from the real world by the millions of pounds they earn each year. And the millions more they get when they cock up and are asked to leave.
Well I hope it works if only to get rid of the current lot.
but what happens when baron greenback, claims that he called dangermouse living at his address they will then send the password verification to his address and as they wont show your address on the site there is no way to tell you apart if he is using pictures of you. Hence not a lot you can do.
