Like a cut down synology..
...that does this and way more for a price point of less than a couple of hundred quid to start

IRIS was far better than the shite e-passport machines which forever have queues of people stood around them looking aimlessly at the ceiling instead of looking-at-the-bloody-camera.
It was quicker and didnt even need to get your passport out of your pocket, which made it a bit 'cool' - thats probably the government cancelled it, it was just too efficient.
I'm amazed that the Dutch e-passport machines (that have never seen me before) can process me far quicker than the e-passport pants that we've now implemented.
Just had a bit of a eureka moment... or possible a silly idea..
The balloon is the risk here because once it pops it may cover everything, but the reason it pops is because it'll reach max pressure from the altitude.. so....
Use two balloons, one as the main load bearer (ie filled to the correct stated capacity to provide lift for the entire rig) and have another balloon of the same standard but only fill with say 50% of the gas. Tie the rig a significant distance below both balloons but tie the small balloon above the larger of the two - with a safe distance between the two.
Then when the main balloon bursts first the entire LOHAN structure will start to descend but... and heres the key thing.. the burst main balloon stays well clear of the main rig as itll be kept above the rig by the smaller balloon (make sure the secondary balloon can take the weight of the burst primary).
Then we can use one of the many burst balloon scenario detections.
They announced the 8.9 months ago and still dont have a release date.
For all the pain that comes along with the apple product launches at least when the launch they actually launch the thing.. to * gasp* sell
Dear Samsung, please remove thumb from arse and start selling some stuff..
As the last few octets (yes I know this isnt the defact name yet, but you know what I mean) of the IPv6 address is from the MAC address of the device, surely it will make it easier for operators to know what device is where.
Also it'll likely help them link mobile contracts with mobiles, tablet contracts with tablets
Not necessarily great for the users (based on the way we get screwed either way) but from a billing perspective it must better for the ops
I re-backed up 80GB 3 times with them before I gave up. they claim this doesn't Re upload but it still takes just as long.
move to humyo, uk based, a Tad more expensive, but you can use their tool which does full syncing, and one way syncing (stops this issue) and allows direct access to the data with your own client as well
You're going to see a lot more of this because of toss pot jobbs wanting everything written specifically for the iphone.
If this was written natively for the iphone its an entire rewrite to port to android et al, exactly what bad ol steve wants.
I was interested in going back to an iphone with the 4g (currently on nexus one - which is v good), but with this closed garden/wall/everything approach apple are moving to they are going to be too much of an apple only place.
I've been waiting for ages for a decent android phone to come along, and my iphone 3g is feeling long in the tooth.
I'm all for google until they truly turn evil, at which point I'll have to do a 'Lily' and cease to be online, cause they will know too much by then!
The amount of bandwidth the public can use is tiny and its stuffed full of stuff - how fast/slow is your wireless network at home?
Homeplug is brilliant and means that all devices plugged into the 240v mains are on the same network, with no interference from neighbours.
As all tv's/dvd's/media centres need to be plugged in its the ideal interface
Im imaging having your ps3 plugged into the wall, then you plug your tv, and both devices show up on your home network - thats how home networking should (and almost does) work
Yes it is an issue hence on optical networks you will find ILA (In line amplifiers) and ILR (In line regenerators) every 70kms or so. These are swapped dependant on the overall distance covered between the main bits of kit at either end.
The ILA's just bump up the signal and the ILR's reshape the signal from a more wavy curve to be a more square binary light pulse.
Interestingly the speeds keep increasing for the end cards year on year however the ILA's and ILR's keep handling the increased speed as they are relatively non-complicated bits of kit. Remember that those lovely fibres across the pond also need these things, so you will find them under the sea every 70ks or so and they have been doing this for quite a few years.
Isnt it more 'Watt' current do they output....coat being put on as we speak!
Interestingly when I was about 14 I made one of these from a disposable camera, just take some handy cable from either side of the capacitor and you've got a lovely stun-gun. If I remember right if the discharge wires were too close together they would also give a nice skin burn as well!
