Bastard.. made me look at the pdf -> Chevalier is an 'accomplished software developer and computer scientist' - was very curious as to what he did for Google (just in case it was Youtube lmao).
Re: Does that mean...
20th upvote because I get what he's talking about and disregard the extraneous 'triggers'.
When you put it like that, suddenly I want one...

Lego Batman could handle it... Awesome pecks, nine abs, and never misses leg day... pew pew pew!
Re: Was I the only one...
Nope - I was wondering why trains weren't falling over everywhere, figured I'd hear about something like that happening...
Re: First prize
Perfect! Dudley Do-right of the Mounties will save the day... Works cuz he's Canadian ;)
Re: Not on IDENT1
What does 'low-paid immigrants' have to do with the price of tea in China? Anyone who has worked hard with their hands is going to have this problem. Anyone, including me.
He already incriminated himself by being seen ingesting the packages, cops are just waiting on the evidence to appear naturally, so to speak.
Re: Just a plop in the ocean
That was terrible...
Re: Great Plains is starting to sound like a city you might like to move to....
oh yeah! Love it when I'm down there at various client sites - EPB's only bottleneck is the rest of the internet lol.
Re: Flat Earth Heretic
They have to return otherwise it's obviously a coverup by the Iluminati, even then they were probably brainwashed...
Anyone can play this game lol.
Re: I believe...
Drive a nice grandpa/senior citizen type car too - they're known for taking up to 20 minutes to complete an ATM transaction. Often I wonder if they're doing hostile corporate takeovers or stock trades whilst waiting because I just don't get what in bloody hell they're doing up there...
and that would about do it - no gravy required or wanted...
Re: To paraphrase...
Hmmm where did you get your data?
According to the US Army (circa mid 1980's), it was ten 'attaboys' to one 'oh shit'.

You asked.... muaaahahahaha

"It's easy to get stuck in jail when you're poor."
True statement. Public Defender= Jail
I don't care if you have to pawn your kids temporarily, get a real lawyer.
Re: You're really lucky!
Replacement warranty? On a car? Wut? - Confused colonial...
Really, not kidding.
SHL just got real-mode: US lawmakers demand answers on Meltdown, Spectre handling from Intel, Microsoft and pals
Re: Don't Panic
El Reg is generally ahead of the curve, so bad luck to the looting and world chaos folks... El Reg commentards get the opportunity to loot and cause world chaos *first*.
Re: of course you could
Odd you mention that about spare parts - I was all curious as to why I was seeing Tesla parts on a Chinese discount website (fasttech.com), I guess I know at least a partial why now.
Re: Pure coincidence?
No. Colorado is right there and Nebraska knows it.

I *still* collect jumpers when I find them - you never know. I remember setting up 14.4 modems' COM ports etc, you didn't do it right, no workie.
Re: Oh, that's why
Fucking Daily Mail reloads every four minutes too, if it wasn't bad enough.
No - more like 'here, hold my beer..'
Re: "With no planes to fly off her, we might as well sink her"?
Not strictly true - there a volcano islands being formed fairly regularly that you could land planes on, that will sink back into the sea at some point and become reefs.

Where have we heard that before?

Guy in overalls asked me about Bitcoin mining...
... had a bluetooth device attached to his ear and I told him then it could be sketchy. That made him smile for some reason. Gave him a bunch of information about BT and how to mine them using different types of specialized miners etc.
Haven't seen him since but I *know* there is a barn somewhere out in the woods with a 3 phase backup generator where a huge propane tank used to be, and racks of miners where the stills used to be inside.
Re: 250kts assumes
What if British Chinese drones carried the

Since American Chinese drones are non-migratory ...
I am Groot?
Iran or white supremisistsistists. Choose wisely...
Re: Wait what?
Meh, you don't create zone records manually, you set up a domain setup script template that targets a DNS server to create zone records, webserver to create folders/set permissions, email server for same. My original statement applies.
A DNS change can take up to 72 hours to percolate down to every DNS server, depends on the individual server's TTL config.
Or has that changed since yesterday?
Re: Finally, a reason to move the task bar
My taskbars have been up top for many years now because... you know... gravity. Machines run faster ;)
Re: How worse than Single User Mode?
Don't tempt me, I still have some Solaris x86 install software laying around...
I still have a lawyers office where I install Quattro* on new machines... lol
*So old, spellcheck says wtf? lmao...
Security? We've heard of it.
Yet tell them the 10 year old/never updated firewall appliance needs to be replaced to balance their gigabit/fiber network and increase network speed, they're all over it.
Is it a lie? Or just presentation?
You pimp it out with maximum memory and a Samsung PRO(! that's important !) SSD.
Yeah and I easily have 25-30 of them laying around too...
I do share via twitter - some, not all of your stuff, is pretty good. Depends on the mood actually.
This is why I collect encyclopedias and old books - they tend not to change when the wind blows from different directions*.

Re: Shit and Shovels
Do not speak of things you do not know - shit does *not* fly off a shovel - it mostly sticks.
Re: Star Trek
...used two step authentication for important shit like blowing up the Enterprise, voice ID and personal code/password.
Star Trek wasn't Star Trek and Gene Roddenberry knew better in the 60's.... Hope for the future? Not so much.

Our Stanley Steamer needed wood or coal to run, but we only had Buffalo Pies... they were free...
Re: 'most modern cars will struggle to reach'
Actually, already planned on plumbing a Chevy 350 with a 5 speed trans in there with a carb and ripping out most of the electronics when the 2.9l dies. Nag doesn't have electric windows or navigation, don't use cruise control (vacuum cruise control is available if wanted). Airbag and antilocks (hate the bastards anyway) may be challenging.
I do want to see 500k miles on this engine - this was my first (and last) brand new vehicle purchase. You're not kidding though, I get looks sometimes at the tire place when they find out how long I've had it - I'm the exception evidently, not the rule.
Re: 'most modern cars will struggle to reach'
Well, I'm driving an 08 GMC Canyon with the 2.9l four-banger @228k miles... but I take care of her with synthetic fluids - had her since there was 77 miles on the odometer...
Re: Hell froze over
Hey Skippy, I have more than a few Android phones from different manufacturers over the years that got one or two updates over the course of the contracts.
Currently on a Moto Z Force @7.1.1, which is pretty good on updates, three this year so far.
Name the damn phone already!
