this sort of thing is known a 'special' loan that doesn't need paying back.
What's the difference ? :)

After being a Windows stalwart for many years I finally switched the family laptop over to Linux Mint after contemplating paying hundreds for a shiny new version of Windows. Not only are the updates and patches now handled quickly and easily but more importantly it actually passes the SWMBO test. Easily.
Haven't found anything I can't run under Mint that I need and the whole thing runs 100x faster.
No wonder MS are worried when Linux is reaching a fairly mature (as in family friendly) age. A tipping point for Linux will arrive soon which I think MS might be trying to counter.
"Any half competent defence lawyer should be able to mount a very robust defence against this sort of evidence along the lines of "prove it was my client using that IP address and not one of the dozen other people running through that NAT"."
Unfortunately that used to the be the original defence when speed cameras came in. "Prove it was me driving"
So what did they do? yup, they changed the law so that the car owner was liable.
Next step? You make the Router owner liable for all traffic.
I really don't like the way this is all going.
I wonder if the Houses of parliament have open WifFi ? :)
Do smart meters work if I have solar cells and feed the energy back into the grid ?
If they do and they meters then run backbards won't someone sitting infront of a computer in some far flung call centre put a block on my energy because I must have cracked the system.
Either way let's all just get solar panels and bugger them up roaylly :)
"unless a human took the image, it cannot be registered and, thus, would be considered a public domain image freely available for use"
So If I set up a camera that has an infra-red trigger that is set off by an animal, that photo doesn't belong to me but to the animal that set it off and thus is in public domain?
Please correct me if I'm wrong but just deleting something from a search engine doesn't actually remove it from the source. So, it's still out there in the Interwebs ready to be found again later.
Also, does this just apply to the EU? So if I search on a US site or a Russin one for that matter will I still find the offending material ?
A few points taken from the study you pointed to :-
Page iv is titled "Some limitations of the study"
1. 77 out of 175, could not be included in the meta-analysis
2. There is a possibility of publication bias in the data
3. The results may to some extent reflect the effects of other road safety measures, not just changes in speed
4. Data concerning speed and/or accidents can be unreliable
5. A number of studies contain multiple estimates of effect.
6. The study does not state what the relationship between speed and accidents is for specific types of accidents or in specific types of traffic environment.
It also states that "The Power Model applies to injury accidents only, and not to accidents at large."
So it's saying that speed is related to the severity of the accident not whether speeding is safe or not.
All of that kind of puts the report in the bin really in this context.
It also mentions other studies that show that cars travelling slower or faster than the mean speed of traffic are more often involved in accidents
So, slow speed also kills to coin a phrase.
There's lies, damn lies and statistics.
How about a screen shot of the option that allows you to install another OS ?
I'd call that a feature and seeing as it's not now there then it's a feature that's been removed.
How would you feel if they removed the BluRay player because it allows you to play pirated movies.
Ford are assuming that the beloved first borns are honest enough not to borrow their parents keys.
If they are sensible enough not to do this then they are probably sensible enough not to need this system in the first place.
If they are of the boy racer mentality then they can just circumvented the 'system' anyway by using their parents keys.
