Re: needing to haul together on a rope to remove a ferrous tool
I have ferrous keys, a ferrous key ring, and a ferrous keychain. None of which are unusual. What are you on about?

It was effectively a public broadcast, as many places would acknowledge emergency dispatches are. Part a falls apart like a toilet paper bikini in a wave pool.
Part b effectively requires that the broadcast was private to begin with, so it falls apart like a poorly designed flaming marshmallow sculpture on a windy day.
Hopefully, stupidity will not prevail and there will be no prosecution.
You've got a second plug to connect, usually a bulky power adapter that doesn't play nicely with the other plugs behind the telly.
Maybe, but not necessarily. Mine uses a USB power supply, and my TV could actually power it. Have you actually looked into it?
You've got to put the set top box somewhere, and its not going to be on top of the set - they don't fit these days.
They're surprisingly small. Have you seen a Roku or a Chromecast, or are you just making unfounded assumptions?
You're using up another HDMI socket - TVs that are going to need a set top box only have a couple of HDMI sockets.
You're grabbing at straws. You could use the old A/V hookup with the three RCA plugs, potentially. Of course, I'm tempted to ask what's plugged into those ports since there's no space to put anything that could plug into them based on your other question, but that would require that you maintain logical consistency.
You've got yet another remote control to lose down the back of the sofa.
So the fact that you're either disorganized or lazy should be the reason, ignoring that Roku, for one, already demonstrates using your phone as a remote?
Should I go on?
Only if you've got a real reason
Think about the damage a tiny stone does to your windscreen doing 70 on the motorway
None at all? I mean, at 80 mph, little stones don't generally do any damage to windshields here in the states, so it doesn't matter if you mean 70 mph or 70 kph, it's not going to damage any half-decent windshield. If they did damage like you seem to think, we wouldn't dump truckloads of them on the highway every winter.
If 25% store their credit card details in autofill, and 4% would decide it's not worth the bother, you're still ignoring the ones for whom autofill works as expected and inputs the correct data. I can pull a similar number from nowhere, but even if it's 50%, the result is significantly off of what this "researcher" estimated.
If you've ever looked at any research on loss of capture through UX issues you would know that the percentages lost can be staggering, even at payment stage. You do not want to give people time to get pissed off, think about if they really want it, or look at the total price again.
Doesn't mean there's any basis for the assumption. You'd have to guesstimate the number of folks with autofill, the number of them that have the autofill improperly storing a 4 digit year, and the number of them lazy enough to give up on the order because of it. The number is pretty much guaranteed to have been made up, just like 87% of statistics in news articles.
If you and your pilot friends think it ought to be banned, consider yourself welcomed to the club. Unfortunately, you may not be so thrilled when you find the club is of luddites, flat-earthers, and other anti-progress and anti-technology folks.
There's nothing wrong with the tech at this stage if it's used as a driving aid, much the same as old-school cruise control or the autopilot in a commercial aircraft.
The problem, as the other commentard pointed out and y'all keep conveniently ignoring, is that all that the light sail is doing could be done ballistically. Of course, we're hearing they didn't but we're also hearing that the light sail can't get it out of orbit to truly show it's actually moving the darned thing. It can't even keep it in orbit beyond a year, based on the way the article is written.
If you actually read the article, it's much ado about nothing.
Across the pond, the most functional systems for rural areas still use radio. Multiple vendors available, dead simple to figure out, no lock-in. Just some frequency allocated so that it's not used by anyone else. Local dispatch centers make sure everyone is within reasonable range, and ring-downs cover when the wrong center picks up. Mostly works when the phone lines are down, even, although it makes it harder for folks to call emergency numbers. This can be used in urban areas with minimal issues, as well.
Why a country would feel the need to do all this over cellular or via one vendor, I cannot understand.
That's an indefensibly stupid opinion when babies are being killed and you try to defend it by saying "Is it your body? No? Then you shouldn't get a say." It's not the mum's body being killed, it's the baby's. You show your argument and position as baseless and absurd.
Job done, indeed. Bloody idiots.
It's been a while, but I believe you end up getting a permit to fly. The AMA has moved the paperwork to members-only, so I can't see it, but it probably requires insurance, specific inspections, enhanced site requirements (bigger area in case something goes wrong), and possibly notifying the nearest airport.
Probably willing to pay them as long as they are not doing anything productive. No need to worry about that with the ones who walked out today.
Reminds me of an old comic strip when it is announced that all nonessential personnel can go home early. The boss stands in the window saying something like "deciding who to lay off will be easy this year." Might have been an old dilbert strip.
