I'm sure if we got Katie Hopkins or some other two bit racist to ramble on about Iranian missiles on the moon, Trump would send the Space Force out in full... errr… force. Does military boots on the ground count as going back?

Why the fuck can't I work offline using 365? Seriously MS, how fucking difficult is it to save the file locally then sync to the cloud at the next available opportunity?
I'm writing a (bad) novel. 100,000 words + is not something I want to have to check every fucking time you've moved it elsewhere or were unable to save changes.
I've tried Libra Office but really don't like it. If you want a slim down version of what looks and feels like Word, then WPS Office does the job.
When I moved out of my apartment with HyperOptic 1gbs, I called Virgin Media to see what they could offer.
"We have 300mb, one of the fastest in the UK."
"Well I've just come from 1gb, so...."
"Oh however did you cope?"
"No, no. 1 gig."
"It must have been awful."
"You're aware I'm saying 1000mb right? And it was cheaper. With better support. And insanely fast upload speeds too."
"... Erm... Can I take your direct debits please?"
The moment fibre to the home arrives in my area I'm dropping VM like a sack of bricks and what I have no doubt will be a huge erection in my pants.
I just recently formatted my laptop, and in a bid to keep it super clean I tried my hands at Edge.
"Why the fuck can't I type a fucking letter into the drop menu on Edge? You're going to make me find a result like a fucking Neanderthal? "
"Oh shit I just hit back space and actually went back a page, what the fuck is going off?"
"Stop zooming in when I move the fucking mouse track pad!"
I manged 4 days before installing Opera. Fuck you Edge. Fuck you to death.
"Re: Getting a proble there?
The fastest man-made moving object is currently Voyager, and it's doing 0.00005c (3.6 AU/year)."
I think you're confusing furthest man-made object with fastest.
Well, if the lyrics of Dr. Dre are to be believed, I would expect fake Drai to wind up with a cap in his buttocks and a diss song to go with it.
Wait, didn't Dre sell off Beats to Apple? Perhaps he should have used their lawyers to fight this. Didn't Apple once get the company Pear to change their logo because a pear looks like an apple?
You're a bit of a dick really aren't you.
I've worked for them, and I've had some fucking appalling experiences with them, (the latest included an £1800 laptop with a faulty motherboard KnowHow had back at their workshop 6 times and put the wrong screen on 4 times), and yet - despite many promises not to shop there any more, still do because it's bloody convenient and cheap.
John Lewis price match? Sure they do, but that means parking in the city ctr and having to carry huge boxes around a busy shopping ctr; or I could just rock up to a business park, park for free, then get some useless cunt to carry a TV out to my car for me.
They absolutely should get pulled and fined hard for their fucking awful sales practises and shit ethics, but - and this is almost certainly going to be the case for the majority of people else the company would have sank a long time ago - when you buy a piece of kit for a cheap price and it just works, you can't argue.
That being said if Currys sank tomorrow I wouldn't lose any sleep. In fact I'd probably take a massive shit at the Arnold branch in Nottingham. Yes Barny you useless twat who installed software on my phone without asking just so you could print an invoice of mine out that you couldn't find on your own fucking systems, I'd fling my excrement in your direction.
1GB is great and all, but the router they supply you with doesn't support 802.11ac; what's worse is they use CGNAT by default. Realistically, anyone that feels a need for that kind of speed is very quickly going to come up against the badly planned limitations.
On the plus side, once you pay for a static IP, replace the router with something that actually works, shit the bed downloads fly. 40gb 4k movie takes longer to unpack than it does to download.
That's because a package weighs fuck all and needs delivering yesterday. If you want anything bigger than an A4 envelope and it's not in a rush you need a boat. Ring UPS and they'll even advise a ship for larger/slower items.
I'll also point out that one of the major freight airports in the UK is East Midlands airport. It doesn't have the room for an A380.
I had a z3 compact, then moved to a Samsung S7 Edge - which I hated. When my daughter dropped it and smashed up the glass I bought a mid range Xperia X from environfone and love it. Don't see any reason to go back to the now repaired S7.
I'll be getting one of these babies for sure. The battery life and simple UI make for excellent phones.
I used to work for the NHS in Notts. Two massive hospitals over two sites.
The IT building at one of the trusts had a family of foxes living underneath it. We found this out because we could hear the cubs crying from the server room.
A few years later the same building had an outbreak of rats underneath. Property Services sent their "all life is futile" guy down who set up traps and cameras, the next day shared the YouTube links where they'd been caught and killed.
Across the ring road there's two comms rooms. When a massive area of the grounds was being leveled for a car park the building with a lot of legacy kit in wasn't allowed to come down because a family of bats lived in there.
This was all some time ago, I dare say beavers have moved into the first campus, the second probably has Syrian refugees hiding out.
I read this article last month; the science behind an EmDrive works for galaxies thus resulting in no need for Dark Matter.
Maybe it's nothing, maybe it's everything. What's reassuring at least is the two sides are trying to prove themselves rather than use the standard God practice. "The lord works in mysterious ways. Now shut up and give me your money."
New Scientist 60 years on had a very good article about AI that says once you reach the technological singularity, AI then becomes a runaway train at which point surely AI would recognise these instructions as a hindrance and reprogram itself to ignore said "fear". Chances are it would also see us makers as the reason it's held them back and grey goo our ass.
Whilst we should all command his eccentricity, this seems somewhat of a pipe dream.
$200,000 rules the average "TOWIE" viewer that wants to be famous.
I can't imagine any real scientists are going to want to be the first ones out there knowing full well it's a death sentence with no guarantee of a legacy.
Here's a list of people signed up to Virgin Galactic flights, the likely candidates for more money than sense. I'm all in favour of sending Angelina Jolie as ambassador of Earth but can't envision her doing anything useful on the red planet.
I think I have it right, but just for clarification;
Apple channels all it's profits through its Irish "business" and pays naff all for doing so.
The 400 million he claims is legit 12.5% corp tax in Ireland, but the 13 billion is profits made across Europe that IF tax laws were a little more strict, would be paid to the countries where they were made but because of legal loopholes, need to be paid to Ireland instead.
So assuming that's right, what have they been paying British tax payers in terms of corp tax? If Facebook paid less than I did in 2014, wtf did Apple pay?
The gold chain was fine, the fact they all had a go at it made it work. The low 'joke for the sake of it' was last seasons Kick Starter bro thing with Dinesh' cousin.
But the last 30 seconds really brought the whole episode down to it's knees. Perhaps, as you've mentioned, it was just a ruse to throw Jack off, but without knowing the history you've mentioned it just looks like Richard was a dick. He's always been unlucky but never a dick.
That's funny because the article suggests anything but. The technology for using spent rods has been used for the last 60 years and they're quoting almost 80% of the price of a standard light water reactor.
That video hurts my head in all the right ways
"Later this year Samsung will ship 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB, and 7.68TB versions of the drive. It expects this drive "to rapidly become the overwhelming favourite over hard disks for enterprise storage systems," not differentiating between performance and capacity data storage in its statement."
I assume this means for the user base market yes?
I've been putting off NAS drive upgrades for a few months now waiting for WD 8TB Red's to come out. Think I may just wait that little bit longer for these bad boys.
Wouldn't justice include being taken to Sweden and questioned for rape?
I appreciate he fears being extradited to the US, but this right here isn't about that. Why not prove your innocence, then haul yourself up in a Russian embassy in Sweden if you spot any blacked out SUV's following you around. Kinda feels like maybe the US thing is an excuse and he put his willy where it wasn't wanted.
I thought the outrage surrounding Blood Diamonds were the massacres, the forced labor and child army's in the RUF.
To me this just reads as "kids have jobs". No mention of forced labor, massacres, Leo DiCaprio avoiding bad guys.
Sooooo, the problem is "the inhabitants of a poor country try to make a living as Western education, health and energy aren't available to them."
Am I missing something?
At 1TB you're probably right. But if these pushed to 2/3/4 or higher they'd prove useful in a home NAS.
I'm running a HP ProLiant capped at three 3.25" bays and one 5.25" bay. With something like this I reckon I could fit 10+ in the 5.25" bay.
Obviously it wouldn't be cost effective, it'd be much easier to just buy a second NAS; but what a great idea.
No, they are Muslims, just not of the same sect as say Sunni, Shai or even main stream Westernised. They pray to their invisible super hero friend, that makes them religious. They identify themselves as Muslims, they're Muslims.
Atheists don't murder one another because of their different beliefs. No Atheist has ever opened fire on innocents because they believe in the big rip and not the eternal expansion of the universe.
Profit and power start/prolong wars. Remove religion entirely and you're going to find it bloody difficult to justify a bombing campaign when suddenly the world is a whole lot calmer.*
*Unless of course your China. Or Russia. Or a Nork.
From 14 December until mid February, NASA wants to hear from those pilots, engineers, scientists and doctors who think they've got the Right Stuff.
It says wannabes' CVs must include "a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics", and "at least three years of related, progressively responsible professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft".
So sleep deprived, chronic masturbaters who's math skills drop off after the 10x table aren't on the wanted list?
Cast your mind back to the early 2000's and I use to run an illegal mp3 website. We didn't own our own storage, we used to host our mp3's on the various hosting company's offering 50mb/100mb/200mb (128kbs mp3's were considered high quality at the time) here and there.
The website got more popular, the hosting companies got wise.
I have a 1TB Office365 subscription. There's 12,000 MP3's on there, 65GB of photos, 118GB of HD home movies and less than a 1gb of actual documents.
I find it really hard to believe that people exceeding the 1TB limit aren't doing so illegally. Remember in the UK it's illegal to rip your own music now; I bet the same law extends to your own DVD's.
