Cool, but a fully working desktop QPC is still in fantasy-land. Unless ofcourse you create a national liquid-nitrogen/helium network to keep every PC at ~0Kelvin

'Negatively strange' antihypermatter made out of gold

H 5

-1 != 0

Mundanity is the lack of interest, boringness is the negative of interest, so we really should be using the latter.

of course, the S - Axis could invert upon crossing the threshold from matter to anti-matter ( think 1/x ), and so they have created anti-strange-hypernuclei rather than anti-boring-hypernuclei.

Right, Im off for some anti-hyper-sobriety.

Great Episode...

of course you alsoe get the Annoyance factor, Annoyance A = (S^2 * IQ) / T

where T is Tolerance .

We all know what happens when tolerance reaches zero.

Less bleeding during surgery means a surgeon can actually see what the hell hes doing, you need to get the blood out of the way - field medics are less liky to have equipment and qualified assisntants to swab and suction blood away.

As for infection , you;ve just nuked the bacteria with an effing plasma field. Can't get much more sterile than "consumed by fire".

The wound will heal because only a very thin layer of tissue is cauterised - theyre not BBQing the wound. Burns heal don't they?

Why am i not f******g surprised at all. They should have just piled £24.4 million up in Trafalgar square and set it all on fire. The scale of the Government's Incompetancy isn't even comical anymore its just pitiful.

That's some ballsy con-art, I mean who in their right mind would even believe you can just duplicate money - and with a 'magic potion' too.

White hats release exploit for critical Windows vuln

H 5

@Shagbag etc

No system is completely secure. You plug it into other computers, its at risk, simple as.

I would trust the overall security of Windows7 over any open sauce effort anyday, just becuse no-one is trying to comprimise it doesnt make it more secure.

Until PCs as a whole are designed and build from the hardware up (including the network/internet) to be bulletproof against tampering, they will never be 100% safe from malicious parties.

It is airborne and there is no mention of its incubation period. So the fact that it can kill within a day doesnt mean it can only spread within that day.

He is being prosecuted under the full extent of the law in order to be a deterrant to any other Hackers. Rather than accept that they were incompetant and improve their security, they will try to scare off any other would-be hackers by throwing the book at him.

FF anyday

Id use FF over any of the others on my PC any day - AdBlockPlus and NoScript are essential addons. FF isnt invulnerable but its a damn sight better and more customisable than IE or Chrome.

iPodTouch's BB is on the way

If its not as capable as a mac-mini then why is it more expensive, the tablet form factor i expect to pay for but if its nothing more than a suped up iPodTouch then Im pretty dissapointed with the rumoured price.

Having said that id love to get my hands on one.

EVE's Economy

@ Richard Drysdall: Eve has a 'real' economy, the "Banks" are player-run. Admins can't just create more money.

This is only shadey because he sold the ISK for real money - e.g. a real theft rather than EVE shenanigans.
