Re: No surprise

i do hope you are not casting the jumblies in the same vein as orange hitler...most offensive.

also...when did assange lose the 'tm' honorific?

i think that hits the wossname right on the thingy!

the last 40 years have been about rhe infantilisation of the consumers of the 1st world.

BT pushes ahead with plans to switch off telephone network


A lot of people are posting here about powering devices over copper....

this will not be as much of an issue as you think. with the loss of leased lines most of the countries power distribution grid loses intertripping, so there wont be any power anywhere. :-)

Re: Really ....

fucking ignoramus

it is not their job fuckwit. their job is to represent the interests of their constituents, and a big part of that is recognising when their constituents are a gaggle of fucking turkeys all eagerly voting for christmas.

you do know that if the number is getting bigger, that's not a good thing?


Re: Article 50

Phil O'Sophical

You mean like capital punishment and gay rights?


Re: Article 50

The referendum was advisory.

It's not legally possible to leave the EU without an act of parliament.

this will be debated, and voted upon. Taking the advice of the 37% of the population that cannot read without moving their lips into account, i am sure.

but an MP's job (if they are doing it right) is a bit more complex.


Re: Oh dear, how sad, never mind.


I think I'd prefer my EU taxes spaffed on something a bit more targeted - you know, to something potentially useful? Or maybe spent locally and not sent to the EU at all?

So I take it you are ditching everything electronic in your life?

typical brexiteer shortsighted beyond all comprehension


Re: Thank you Mr.Farage


we pay more than we get back so are in a position to invest more in ourselves.. the chicken little idiots blaming brexit for this action should perhaps take a moment to recognise that...

we have taken way more out of the research budget than we pay in, and anyone who knows anything about british politicians knows full well that any and all windfalls from no longer making contributions to the EU is to be spent on tax cuts for the wealthy, the NHS, farmers and scientists cal all go fuck themselves.

And maybe brexiteer idiots should at least try to get a fact right every now and again, who knows if they had done that in the first instance we wouldn't be in this mess right now.

Re: Pulling dick moves has historically worked really well for Apple.

Tough to be fair, when it's pretty clear that in cupertinos view no one owns their own device or their own data, it's a but difficult to overreach.

Facebook deleted my post and made me confirm pics of my kids weren't sexually explicit


Re:correlated for poverty and education

you are looking at the data all wrong!

what you need to do, is take a bed sheet, cut two holes in it, then look at the data through the holes.

all will become clear.


Re: body cams.

They do have body cams, although, amazingly they always break down just before a black man dies.

Hence they have to lean on FB to get access to bystander video.

go figure!


Re: Enough

meanwhile across town...

whitey goes apeshit starts throwing stuff at neighbours

neighbourd call cops


show up

whitey starts shooting at them with a shotgun

1 cop injured

swat show up

knockout whitey with gas

everyone lives happily ever after.

I think personally that 'white guys with shotguns who have already shot a cop' are even more dangerous than young black men driving in a car with his partner and child.

please explain the different response, without acknowledging the fundamentally racist policing that happens in the land of the free?

not really disagreeing, just saying.

same for a lesser extent goes for the swiss mercenaries, did i say mercs, i meant army... by which I mean everyone in Switzerland!

fact is there is no one in the world qualified to cast that first stone.

Martha Lane Fox: Brexit is all about MEEEEeeee!


Ahhh enlightenment


... well that explains a lot

for those blessed with not having an account at the coop bank,

their website has recently been 'updated' using a state of the art load balancing mechnism.

the site is so shite it's actually quicker for me to get in my car, drive to my local branch and deal with a person.

yes even, when I suddenly remember something at 3am that urgent... still quicker to drive into town and wait six and a half hours for them to open.

... and relax

Re: " with a third of its staff in the UK from overseas"

Health service?

what a great example of a vibrant healthy business....

due in no small part to being _constrained_ to operate with a significant proportion of their frontline staff being contractors.

If they were in the private sector (checks watch) they would ALL have gone bust years ago.

in a post about electoral accountability you state a preference for a monarch.

i guess for some people irony just means metallic.

Surface Book nightmare: Microsoft won't fix 'Sleep of Death' bug


Supposed to be...

But when has it ever actually been that way?



Apparently not!

Did i miss a meeting?

Sleep an hibernate are just a pain in the arse as far as I can tell. i was trained to shut down with windows 3.0 and don't really get the 'advantage'of having my computer not working, but still running the battery down. nevermind the consequences of even the smallest memory leak when your uptime is potentially infinity.

shut down, it's cathartic, it's the end of the day. full stop, i no longer belong to 'the man', the next few hours are all mine.

The underbelly of simulation science: replicating the results


Re: Often modelling simply adds rigour to thought experiments

Stay there while I go find my copy of 'chaos' and load it into the pocket trebuchet i just aimed at you :-)

the reason 'cfd' is hard is that it is fundamentally chaotic, and the combination of floating point and positive feedback is what caused all the problems. high sensitivity to small variations in initial conditions, coupled with noisy data. you can't really model something like that incrementally - you can theorise, and apply limited tests under highly controlled conditions, but as soon as you try to do anything real world all bets are off.

There is still much work to be done in understanding nonlinear systems. and the current political shenanigans between the scientific and oil/coal producing industrial complex is not helping.

Re: Computer modelling is more of an art than a science

Yet curiously the predictions of the warmists come to pass time and time again.

It must be so frustrating knowing you are right and having the data dispute your.... deeper understanding/prejudice (delete inaplicable) time after time
