The problem is the members of this government suffer from rampant itchy backs, so they need to indulge in some “mutual back-scratching” with friends and relatives
A safe pair of hands?
The world is not enough
Bond thwarts plans by a megalomanic automotive manufacturer to steal Professor Goodenough's blueprints for his new battery technology.
Reprising her role as Mary Goodnight will be Britt Eckland. A cameo by Elon Musk driving the Lotus Esprit from the Spy Who Loved Me.
And we have the likes of PBS and other foreign broadcasters to thank for help preserving some programmes as the BBC used to wipe and reuse tape...
Who are weHuawei to say
When to say goodbye
Or to wonder why we two must part
With thanks to Sigmund Romberg and Gus Kahn
I do sincerely hope that the UK Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) will employ their own people for translation and critically and technically assess the relevant documents to a higher level of assurance than they would otherwise. Can't afford a FAA/Boeing 737Max type relationship/certification regime, and the readership here are no stranger to "interesting" translations of operating instructions from Chinese dialects to other languages.
And by employing their own people, let's hope they don't retain the services of Homer J Simpson either.
A smiling Murphy quipped "you just can't make this shite up."
He hasn't stopped smiling...
And all those years terrorists who wanted to down an airliner had to find ways to smuggle nefarious devices onboard an aircraft, when all they needed to do was once airborne, ask for a coffee and go and pour it over the cockpit instruments. I do of course mean pre 9/11
Can the Reg Standards Bureau verify these claims by knocking off examples of Victus Gorilla Glass off the head of a standing Richard Osman? Can they really survive falling through an Osman? And for good measure, can they survive a falling Richard Osman?
Alexander Armstrong. Osman is also one of the tallest men in recorded human history British TV, at 6 foot 7" (2.0066m), and is regularly teased by other telly personalities on programmes such as Have I Got News For You for his ability to let the rest of us know when it's about to rain.
We have all the justifications we need to hit them hard in the wallet.
Well, Cinia, in the guise of CGN do have us over a barrel with respect to the new nuclear power stations - Hinkley Point C, Sizewell C and Bradwell B. In the case of the latter, the agreement being to deploy CGN's HPR1000 design. As it is, IIRC, the Sizewell C deal gives a premium on the generation tariff.
"...will result in multi-day mobile signal losses for some customers."
Any reason why they can't work with the regulator and the other mobile network providers to allow automatic roaming to another uneffected network in the locality of an upgrade during the work? Perhaps give some nominal compensation for providing the fallback.
Posting this now, 4 weeks later for the record...
British Transport Police have apologised to the woman:
"Now Flynn has received a letter of apology on behalf of the chief constable of British Transport Police (BTP), which says the instruction to cover her T-shirt and the brief detention to give that direction were unlawful. It apologises for any distress caused and gives an undertaking that “the wearing of the T-shirt alone will not lead to her arrest or any direction to cover it”"
They also want to ensure the autonomous vehicle makes an effort to get back in contact with humans to finish its duties after losing touch,
Will it be listening in for Radio 4 Long Wave to see if it is worth betting back in contact with humans? I read somewhere that with the UK Nuclear Sub fleet, in the event of Blighty being a waste-ground, they are to try to make contact with Australia, Canada or New Zealand
"and accidentally deleted the Sybase master device file while it was running."
I did something similar on a DB/2 for OS/2 installation on a customer site ironically whilst doing a roll-forward recovery after a database corruption. Some quick thinking got me out of a hole - connected to another of the customer's sites and copied the relevant file off that server, as the builds were identical. The connection...

NASA have released "A Decade of Sun", images captures by the Solar Dynamics Observatory.
This 10-year time lapse showcases photos taken at a wavelength of 17.1 nanometers, which is an extreme ultraviolet wavelength that shows the Sun’s outermost atmospheric layer — the corona.
Well, I wouldn't be surprised (though I don't want to know) if Boris wears Union Jack boxer shorts.
And at the next Conservative Party Conference, whenever that may be, they'll no doubt sell knickers with Boris' mug on the front and a Union Jack at the back.
