Half the size, but twice the thickness

Around 2000 I did a desktop rollout in a hospital, after the first few I got the first call to say a user had lost their favourites in Internet Explorer, could I go back to have a look. I had been backup up the favourites (for it was merely a folder in the user's profile or my documents folder) so wondered how it had been missed as I walked through the maze of corridors to the consultant's office.
Upon arrival I checked the favourites and sure enough, nothing there, I went to the back up from the old machine and checked favourites... still nothing. I asked the consultant to show me how she accesses her favourites. The consultant opened the browser, clicked the down arrow at the end of the address bar and pointed at the blank list that dropped down.
Possibly the most worrying thing is that I only have 6 bookmarks (as they're called in Chrome) because I do the same thing and my attempts to remember to save URL's in browsers properly have repeatedly failed.
Which is probably where the 8 people fired come in.
All this is really proving is that HMRC have methods and procedures in place for auditing, detecting and taking action against people who you wouldn't want handling the financial data of the country's citizens.
Good on them.
Water Vapour and Steam are both usually invisible.
Steam is a gaseous form of water (i.e. no air present). Water vapour describes molecules of water in the air, the water in the vapour can be small droplets of liquid water (multiple molecules joined together) or a gaseous form of water (individual molecules).
Steam can be released into the air where it will mix with the air and form a water vapour. The visible plumes which are often referred to as steam is the condensation of water vapour within the air to form droplets of a visible size - note this is still a water vapour because it is water in air.
Maybe I've been spoilt by the historic increases in capacity, but a 10 fold increase in 15 years doesn't sound all that impressive to me. If that's because we're getting to the limits of the technology then I suspect another technology (whether that be flash or something else) will come along to take the low cost mass storage crown.
Not only deliberately mutilated, with the arms, legs and head removed, but also in a way which appears to have been an attempt to prevent the buildup of decomposition gases, the torso was also attached to some metal as ballast.
It's sounding less like the honourable "sea burial" that was first implied, he clearly didn't want the torso to be found.
It seems that Labour (and many other motoring organisations) have overlooked the fact good driving is not all about speed. If they honestly believe that they can determine a good driver based purely on the speed they travel through a known monitoring point then they're wrong. Driving is a complex skill and any reward for good driving should take all elements of that into account.
I assume they only plan to reward drivers who not only stay within the speed limits, but those who use the inside lane, and who ensure they indicate correctly when pulling out to overtake before returning to the inside, and observe a suitable gap between themselves and the car infront, and keep their car in good working order (will the camera's check for broken lights even if they're not switched on, or deduct points for using fog lights unnecessarily), and who haven't just slowed down to pass through the monitored area, need I continue?
