antum theory states mass should not exist. One of the possibilities is that the level of energy is so low as to break down the forces holding particles together which would be a very interesting way of examine the building blocks without a particle
Have you heard of chemistry. Mass exists, within that mass exists enough energy to keep that mass together and when we break that energy we get the trouble governments have been worrying about since the 50s.
Be careful with that option at the moment. HP isn't accepting cashback on the Amazon sellers I've asked them about except from Amazon itself.
Just a heads up, HP are pretty picky about where you buy them from, and finding a list of accepted vendors seems to be impossible,
Saying that their email support is pretty good at saying yay or nay to any you ask them about.
I had this happen from some Irish Facebook Aps company- I don't Facebook.
I got an email saying that I was being charged 120 quid by Paypal, first thought it was a phishing scam, but checked only to find out some scam company I'd never heard of had put an auto renewing £120 charge on my account.
I managed to get a chargeback and I know these scams are hard to combat but a quick Google found hundreds of complaints, going back several years, on Paypal's own forums about the same company doing the same thing. With no response, or action, from Paypal.
Now if I was more suspicious I might wonder if Paypal do nothing about these things because they gain if the fraud works but lose nothing if it doesn't due to the time limits and barriers they put on chargebacks.
'I know I keep shilling them, but Unicomp bought the right to the Model M and are still making them and some minor variations, see http://pckeyboard.com/"
Unicomps are great except that they are completely destroyed with even a little spill of liquid. I went through two, one was a replacement, in about eight months due to spills during drunken gaming,
Model Ms can be washed in the dishwasher.
While they can't stop the undercover Feds I think the implication is that the many people from three letter agancies that have been openly attending, and giving talks, since Def Con's start are no longer welcome.
Half of the fun of Def Con is it's one of the few places where poachers and gamekeepers openly mix and share ideas.
Did you also miss "Auernheimer then distributed the list of email addresses to media organisations as proof of the vulnerability, forcing AT&T to acknowledge and fix the security problem."
No, having an insecure server with your customers' details is not OK and the only way to stop this happening is to name and shame companies which don't play nice when poeple tell them so.
Actually the way CS handles this isn't too bad. It phones home once a month, if it can't get through it'll tell you on launch but gives you another month to sort it out.
I'm not in favour of this, as like most users me and the places I work for tend to skip, but it's not the worst implementation of DRM about.
Wierd thing, Photoshop must be the most pirated peice of software on the planet, and it's been phoning home for yonks so DRM hasn't worked. Must be about charging us more then.
You sure, genuine question, who? Last time I looked into this no one had been prosecuted although many had been threatened.
Not sure how the law is now but the DDA never really mentioned websites, rather services, it was the rather open ended and websites were only talked about by the DRC and even then it was all about an undifined best practice.
My girlfriend loves the service. It's got a better selection the Netficks and is cheaper than Virgin on demand.
I had a look when i was around hers at the weekend and the selection is pretty damn amazing and around £2.50 for the latest films. Gawd Argo only appeared on trackers a couple of weeks ago and it's on there for a couple of quid.
While people that go to this site are quite happy with the 'cough' alternatives for the non techie population I think this will work out really well.
I'd say John Lewis are a pretty good case of how to do it right. I bought a Samsung TV of them several years ago for not much more than it would have cost online.
Great delivery, not only turned up but rang before, offered to set it up ect. Also when it inevitably stopped working two years later due to blown caps I just rang them up, man comes to pick it up next day leaving a comparable replacement TV, and returns it fixed within a week.
Now if anyone asks for advice where to buy a TV I tell them John Lewis.
I'd actually like them to team up with the Ooite people who have done a fantastic job with just the time on their hands.
One of the big requests is to make it MMO like which they say they can't because of engine limitations. So let Braben work on the engine and use the Oolite assets.
Agree with the comments about the longer game, I loved Oolite until I got the ship I wanted then just lost interest. Not so much cudous in being deadly anymore - I never got to Elite in the specy version - and far to many other things it fill my time.
And docking computers are for Tribbles.
