Re: Have they demonstrated all parachutes yet?
So it worked when they dropped it from a balloon with an extra pre-drogue chute. When will they actually send in further up than that?

@AC #1. What a pile of crap! Have you ever had any experience with one of these courses? Trying to equate it to totalitarian regimes isn't just a stretch, it a break. The courses aren't run by the coppers (as you would be aware if you RTFA) you just get a chance to go on one if you get nicked for speeding instead of getting a fine and points on your licence. The points don't magically vanish as, if you are done again in the next 2 years, you get them anyway.
'But, the report notes pointedly, that when they were asked very direct questions including “Did Secretary Mattis say that President Trump told him to ‘screw Amazon’ by locking them out of JEDI, or words to that effect?” - they were instructed not to answer by their lawyer.'
I other words they kept shtumm because they still have jobs to lose and everone knows Trump is a vindictive little shitbag
Quote "The cleaning is a little hassle, but fairly minor. It takes me about 5-10 minutes"
So if you had to clean it daily when you had pets that's about an hour a week.
More time than it takes me to do my 3 bedroom, 1 cat house the old-fashioned way!
The only thing that made sysvinit legacy was the likes of Poettering declaring it so. He appears to want to replace the whole of the perfectly useably text file based infrastructure with stupid binary blobs or databases. The beauty of flat files is that you can grep them, diff them, even tkdiff them if you must! Binary logfiles are a stupid idea to anyone who administers servers which sometimes have issues!
Except that 'The English Civil War', otherwise the War of the Three Kingdoms, wasn't actually a revolution a la France et al.
A lot of it was actually about the burgeoning middle class acting like the kids and rebelling against the Aged Parents; part of it was about religion, mainly the Irish Catholic Confederacy revolt, but you could also include the introduction of the new Prayer Book in Scotland; and some of it in the earlier phase of the English part was specifically *not* about replacing the monarch, just his advisors.

"I'd wager that that far more than 52% would vote for implementing referendum results regardless of their opinion."
And that might well be part of the problem. Referenda should *never* be taken as binding and acted upon. Their whole purpose is to posit the question 'Should we write something detailed up to be voted upon',. This is the real problem with Brexit, nobody actually knew what they were voting for, as the terms of leaving were never discussed. Hence you get the hard-line "Brexit means Brexit" morons who don't even realise that "Brexit" means different things to different people.
All the Drexiteers complaining that the Government is 'betraying the will of the poeple' need to wake up and realise that the Government is perfectly portraying the 'will of the people' i.e. a small majority of those who actually turned out squabbling over what they actually meant, whilst the small minority who turned out (and quite possibly othere who didn't) are united against all of the factions.
I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you posted this before the update bu in TFA it states -
A change Microsoft made to its operating system's Client Server Runtime Subsystem (CSRSS) causes deadlocks during start up, we're told.
So, yes, it *is* Microsoft's fault

Men's Suffrage -
UK - Representation of the People Act 1918 – the consequences of World War I persuaded the government to expand the right to vote, not only for the many men who fought in the war who were disenfranchised, but also for the women who worked in factories, agriculture and elsewhere as part of the war effort, often substituting for enlisted men and including dangerous work such as in munitions factories. All men aged 21 and over were given the right to vote. Property restrictions for voting were lifted for men
USA - 24th Amendment (1964): "The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax."
Womens Suffrage -
Most independent countries enacted women's suffrage in the interwar era, including Canada in 1917; Britain, Germany, Poland in 1918; Austria and the Netherlands in 1919; and the United States in 1920.
You were saying?

Quote - 'the "Project Fear" nomenclature has arisen in large part due to similar click-bait/sound-bite statements and statistics'
I think you will find that the Project Fear rhetoric was well planned from the start by the hard-line Brexiteers as a response to anybody daring to question the wisdom of throwing the country under a bus to suit themselves.
Much like the Slimy Gove's rubbishing of "Experts", who apparently now know nothing about their area of expertise. *What he really meant was I'm fed up of them pointing out when I'm talking bollocks, i.e.95% of the time)
"(Can you download the entire Internet several dozens of times before Lunch, every single day, on your plan? Why not?)" - Speed, I only have 70G download speed!
" Have you not read the contract you have with your carrier?" - Yes, and it says absolutely nothing about throttling me when I reach any seemingly arbitrarily defined limit.
I was driving along one day when I got a text message. Thinking it might be about the event I was driving to I got my other half to answer it.
The message was "Hi Alice, can you get (random assorted groceries) and some bleach"; I suggested that my S.O. should send back "Alice, who the fuck is Alice".
A second text quickly followed with "Oh and some Victory V's".
Intrigued as to what was intended with bleach and Victory V's we, nevertheless, simply sent back "I think you have the wrong number, this isn't Alice".
In reply we got "Hello Alice this is Grandma, I think that you wrote your number down wrong in my address book"!
We did manage to persuade 'Grandma' that if she had the wrong number for 'Alice' we certainly didn't know it :-)
The only reason "everyone" runs Outlook is because "everyone" uses Exchange. As ever, Microsoft have gone down the lock in route by making it practically impossible to get anything not owned by them to play nicely with Exchange due to closed source (and woeful lack of documentation).
Yet more BeLeaver rubbish.
If the actions of Rees-Mogg, Johnson et al can't convince you that the Leave campaighn was based on lies, damn lies and absolutely no statistics you are blind.
If by 'the majority of the population' you actually mean the *minority* of the population who voted to leave in the first place and the minority of those who still want this, you may be correct.
Oh, and if these's another referendum will the leavers find anything true to say about what would happen if we leave? The supposed 'scare stories' were mainly predictions about what would happen *when* we left, an important distiction that the leavers blatantly ignore with their 'See it hasn't happened so it all a fear campaign' mantra.
We are already seeing shortfalls in funding in a number of ares where companies, universities etc. can't bid for funding or to be part of a joint project which extends beyond March. Exactly where do you see this extra funding coming from if we do leave? Pretty sure it isn't going to be coming from any British government.
