Installer works for me
"You can get Brave here, though we hit a curious problem where the installer claims it isn't able to connect to the internet"
Worked fine for me. Maybe they fixed it.

The mine floor was extremely flat and it still manage to trip over something minor. I doubt it would manage very well in a tunnel with rubble in it from the supposed cave-in making it highly unlikely it could actually reach anybody trapped inside.
And having reached the victim it ignored him and carried on down the tunnel.
Watch the video carefully. At the centre of the net there seems to be a large disc - maybe a cover?
It goes first and hits the target which spins rapidly and almost knocks it out of the path. Fortunately the edge of the net JUST catches it.
I bet if you did the same test 10 times around half would fail
1) They knew about a vulnerability, checked their systems and incorrectly stated they were safe from it.
2) Reset all the passwords then discovered their systems can't handle everybody requesting a new one.
24 hours later I am still struggling to get a new password. About half the people in my company have managed it so far.
Might be more than just high volumes. From their status page (http://atlassian.statuspage.io/):
"We are investigating ongoing problems with Atlassian account preventing users to login to Atlassian services."
I wonder if they took down their password handling programs as a consequence of the breach? What a mess.
The passwords have been revoked but it is currently impossible to reset them and create new ones, presumably due to the volume of requests.
It's kinda unimpressive when they new about the vulnerability and still failed to secure themselves against it.
"Hipchat Cloud does not have the issue described on this page."
When all the reviews first came out I remember they all said the Vive might be better but the Oculus was cheaper. As I suspected it turns out once you have added all the hardware to bring it up to parity it is more expensive.
But the biggest mistake was not launching it as a single package. Developers will be unwilling to make games using the Touch handsets or Room Scale when only a fraction of the users have one. At least with the Vive they know 100% of the user base has them.
"After rebooting the main computers the readings from the thrusters, wheels and instruments showed all systems were normal... it’s an unknown problem that sorted itself out"
So... you just turned it off and on again and that mysteriously fixed the problem? Even rocket scientists do it.
I agree. Extra material has been added and compressed underground by the impact. It then slowly and steadily headed upwards to relieve the pressure. For example Mount Kinabalu on Earth was caused by a big ball of molten rock cooling then rising to the surface, and still rising at 5mm pa. The low gravity would help a lot.
A decade ago I remember my guide referring to those against the telescopes as "CAVE people" - Citizens Against Virtually Everything.
The sites are scared only under the old religion which so few people now follow it doesn't even figure in the stats:
I suspect most of the protesters do not follow it either but retain some ill defined and illogical feeling of sacredness over the sites.
There are better things to protest about, such as land rights.
I have uncovered some figures.
A packet is 256 bytes of data + another 20 header = 276 bytes
Max transmission speed is 16kbps
From a quick calc I reckon that means they can achieve roughly 870 packets in 2 minutes (though there may be some overhead establishing the connection). So we are still a long way off that.
Nobody in any news story seems to have questioned the packet figures:
First contact: One contact for 2 mins, sent back 300 packets
Latest contact: Two contacts for 2 minutes each, but sent back only 185 packets in total.
That suggests very poor comms. Poor angle? Interference from dust? I don't know and nobody seems to be questioning it.
Lots of articles say the only way to be sure you have got rid of everything is to reinstall Windows and avoid using the Windows image supplied with the machine.
The problem is that won't work. The version of windows on it is the cut price "Windows 8.1 with Bing" for which Microsoft has never issued a public ISO. Standard version of Windows will not work.
So without buying a whole new version of Windows we are left just trying to fix the obvious stuff and hope we didn't miss anything.
Nice idea, but remember it can be pretty turbulent. Wouldn't it be better to trigger if the GPS AND (not OR) accelerometer say the balloon has burst.
You don't want a 2 seconds of apparent free fall from a down draft causing an embarrassing premature incident do you?
One problem I forsee is frozen control surfaces. That means the rocket will go in circles and the plane stage will not operate until lower altitudes de-ice it - assuming it has not already broken by then pushing against a non-moving surface.
I think you will have to do one of these:
1) provide heating, perhaps using wire through the hinge points
2) use "wing warping" for steering instead, though it would take more power
3) some other novel method of steering such as weight shift (as used by hang gliders) in a heated container. But I don't think it as ever been done in a model and is probably impractical.
If you type in #!comment: into Microsoft's password checker it declares it "medium strength"
How could the author have overlooked Microsoft being so dumb as to not include their own list of the 5 most unsafe passwords on their own password checker!!! It's a gift.
Since installing the new firmware it now takes me straight back to the page I was reading when I switched it off.
It also adds a very useful feature that the font size can be changed simply by pressing the Volume + and - buttons. So much better than going through the menus.
It also adds a search facilility though the on screen keyboard is too fiddly for it to be of much use.
I would reccommend it as a no-frills stop-gap until better screens arrive, but do install the latest firmware.
