While Microsoft griped about NSA exploit stockpiles, it stockpiled patches: Friday's WinXP fix was built in February
For all it's plodding pace, you can't fault the performances. Nimoy is spot on in this film. The first time Kirk, McCoy and Spock meet, there's a point where he totally blanks McCoy's jibe ("Well it's lucky for you we're heading that way") that makes me laugh every time I watch. Also ("You haven't changed a bit, you're still as warm and sociable as ever." "Nor have you, doctor, as your continued predilection for irrelevancy demonstrates".)
Lots of great moments for Shatner as well, like Kirk getting lost on his own ship, pushing the crew too far and generally being a tool just to get his command back.
Re: Don't quote me
It depends. Later versions of warp technology possibly allow the warp field to be manipulated without risk to the crew. There are warp capable shuttles by the time Picard was commanding the Enterprise D, so I guess they got the kinks ironed out.
Perhaps bigger warp fields are harder to manage safely so the nacelles have to be set away from the ship? This would make a kind of fictional-universe sense as it's usually the bigger ships that have nacelles set away from the main hull. Defiant is pretty small compared to a Galaxy class.
(I'm trying to think of a federation ship that breaks this 'rule'. The Nebula class possibly, it has a Galaxy class size saucer section with a Miranda style nacelle layout.)
Probably thinking too hard about this now.
Re: PC LOAD LETTER
Our current office printer actually offers to print your document on whatever paper size is currently loaded. On the negative side, it will happily default to whatever is in the manual feed tray, (especially if you happen to have left some very expensive paper in there).
Alternative types are often the most conformist, despite their appearance. Not all are of course, but I suspect most people will waive their right to privacy in this case.
I imagine Glastonbury would face more of a backlash due to it's size and the fact it's sold as being a bit alternative and hippy (despite the fact it isn't any more). Reading and Leeds might go for it, depends on what sort of backlash they got on Tw*tter or F*cebook.
Currently as I type, the tw*tter stream is filled fill starving Download punters as their RFID payment system isn't working. So I guess it's sorted itself out.
The only thing I got from this is that parts of Philadelphia
look like bits of northern industrial towns here in the UK. Even down to the terraced streets, which is weird and looks out of place somehow in the good old US of A. Like someone plonked Coronation Street in the Fresh Princes old stomping ground (pre Bel-Air, of course).
I think this project is generally a good idea, especially if it provokes debate and maybe makes someone think twice before they make an unnecessary comment to a lady.
In my day you doffed your hat to a lady and left it at that. If she was interested she dropped a 'kerchief for you to retrieve and you went from there, chaperone permitting of course.
>"Given how tiny they are" -- Given that they [MicroSD cards] are made from metal it would be extremely easy to find with one of their metal detector wands. If you hid it in your luggage it would be likely be located within 30 seconds and removed within a minute or two.
If you hid it in or near a metallic part of your luggage, how would they know? The wands are pretty general about where metal is and unless there are clear signs of tampering they're probably going to miss it?
I have a 7 button mouse for gaming which is probably as many buttons as I'll ever need on a mouse.
Never really enjoyed using Apple mice though, always found them a bit uncomfortable and the one button restrictive. (Almost like they were trying to prove a point). Which is weird 'cos if you plugged in a 3 button MS mouse you could use the other buttons just like you can on a PC (or you could, it's a few years since I tried).
I believe newer Apple mice have other options like some sort of side grips to access other functions?
You dodged the issue of where you're from nicely there..
You can get real meat kebabs in the UK, used to go to a place in Sheffield that did amazing lamb kebabs with big chunks of lamb, mmmmmm.
Sounds like most of your English eating experiences have been post-pub. When your hangover subsides, have a look round and there are some fabulous eating places in GB.
When I'm feeling frisky, I like to add pepperoni under the cheese for that budget pizza taste.
For the Hestons amongst you, before adding the cheese, spread a layer of pesto on the toast, then add the cheese and some Worcestershire sauce. Works well with a good mature cheddar or tasty Lancashire cheese (not too hard or it doesn't melt properly).
I love cheese on toast.
Ha ha, this remnds me. I have
a drawing database that started life in Paradox, moved on to MS Access and currently resides in MS Excel. Twenty two years that database has been alive in one form or another. It's older than my kids.
Paris, cos her most famous work has probably been converted into dozens of different formats, ensuring her place in cinematic history.
