Maersk prepares to lay off the Maidenhead staffers who rescued it from NotPetya super-pwnage

Why are you describing one of the world's single biggest cyberwar attack's with almost certainly the biggest collateral impact as Ransomware?

Paying the ransom didn't help. It is called "NotPetya" because it was not Petya, but looked like it.

It wasn't ransomware, it was a state sponsored weapon of mass disruption.

PARIS launch tomorrow come hell or high water


We understand

Because you were so piss drunk you couldn't see, let alone type?

Hmm. That extending rod is rather phallic isn't it?

You'd better be working up to a massive cock joke with this.

Even bigger than that one.

Vulture 1: Plane plans planned



Let's cut to the chase, development is clearly accelerating and you must by now have some kind of launch date in mind. Isn't it about time we had a Gloriously Tacky Javascript Countdown Thingy beside all the other trash at the right hand side of Reg pages?

Vulture 1: Countdown


Till PARIS goes -down- ... er... *up*.

On actual launch day of course we're going to need one of those Olympic Sized Clocks and someone with a Loud Commanding Voice so you can do the launch commentary properly:

"5...4...3...love balloons primed, ignition and Lift Off! Lift Off of Vulture 1! And PARIS has slid off of the launch pole and is thrusting skywards. The cork has popped and she's coming up fast... some scattered applause from mission control here - there hasn't been this much excitement since Moses parted the pink sea."

Now is the time to contact Brian Blessed and one of the Big Names in clock manufacture... or perhaps you could do two birds with one stone and ask Channel Four to lend you Jeff Stelling and that big clock he sits in front of*?

NASA apparently start their countdown a mere 43 hours** or so before launch. Amateurs. We should start now!

Prof: Carbon sequestration 'as bad as nuclear waste'


As Bad As Nuclear Waste

Nuclear waste is not bad. The continued unjustified fear of nuclear power has got to stop.

He is right to say that carbon sequestration is a stupid, unproven idea and in no way a long term solution to carbon control. In the same breath he shouldn't be denegrating the only actually proven and stable energy technology that could save our skins from the runaway greenhouse fire if, and only if, people get over their idiotic misconceptions about nuclear power.
