Most of the rain falls where there aren't that many people living (eg Scotland, Cornwall) and it doesn't rain much in the South East of England etc where most people live. That's not to say that there hasn't been decades of incompetence and shareholder enrichment though.
Re: "Capita’s expertise in transforming customer experience across all channels. "
Yep, I was just about to point out that it didn't say improving...
I thought Musk's arch nemeses were divers suggesting his technology wouldn't solve a problem...
Re: Why the fuss?
Maybe if it's "media friendly" like skin or breast cancer; but not if it's something like HIV, mental health, anal cancer etc. It's very sad that it's like this.
Re: "poutine up the cash?"
But where would be the pun in that?
Re: Flipped back
That's because they're at war with Oceania and always have been - I've read it in the news.
I reuse envelopes from (mostly) junk mail, means it was used for something useful at least once...
No... The naughty guy was called Brian
Good to see that this applies right to the top
It's refreshing to see a code of conduct applying to the people at the top too and not just to little people.
Re: Seriously snowflake?
>>The employer has the responsibility to provide for the physical and mental well-being of its employees?????
>No it doesn't; you do.
So if you found out that unknown to you your office had broken asbestos pipe lagging then you'd be happy with that?
Re: The real test
Bass is a British beer thought... It was my staple drink at Uni :)
Not forgetting the only work on Netscape signs. A Webring would be nice too.
If we're covering a conference, stories from the event can be grouped together into a handy box on the homepage.
Can we also have a button to turn off the DevOps conference adverts?
But haven't we always been at war with Eastasia?
Re: I work in the field
>Far better to buy up loads of smoke alarms and start your own atomic pile
I had atomic piles once, they itched like hell
Re: So New Amsterdam...
I understand he’s still got his finger in some dykes
Re: re: Submarine cables at risk from sea water, boffins warn. Wait, what?
>He doesn't seem to be too good with divers though.
Very good -->
That sounds pretty scary!
Have a therapeutic pint -->
Re: Hasn't halon been banned or something in the '90s?
Banned for new installations, not to the point where it has to be ripped out of existing....
So I imagine a fair bit lying around!
Aren't they the BOFH's former colleagues "lying" around? You know, sales reps, beancounters, this week's boss?
>I'm more surprised that you found people who liked the user experience - that was what I usually got complaints about!
I was about to make the same point
AI threatens yet more jobs – now, lab rats: Animal testing could be on the way out, thanks to machine learning
Re: Only 57%?
Our company did some work for an animal testing lab - and I'd argue they're not terribly logical people. The experiments which used cows were performed on the first floor, requiring a rather large lift - whereas I'd put the rats up there, and just use the stairs.
You're assuming the scientists had choice in the matter. We've all heard of datacentres being built in the basement of buildings next to a river, this is the same.
Re: Here's a PEP
Might want to add GOTO to your listie. All teh kewl h4xors use GOTO.
10 print "Great idea"
20 goto 10
Love the title
Has anybody got any Veras? Loaaaavely
This does mean that they can throw more "conditions" at the problem using lab automation as the crystal assessment will be much faster.
Re: cooling is for wimps!
I used to work somewhere with a similar system called Clive. No matter what we did to enhance alerting we still weren't as fast as him.
Re: Never mind the H&S of attaching fans with cables
But they need to err 9 pin it on someone
Re: Have you hit upon an interesting way to cool your tech systems?
>Do you vote conservative?
Sounds like he's found an artory
Re: That last picture
Tying it to some wood also works well. I believe they call that a "Spanning Tree" in network circles
Battlecards? I thought IBM used punchcards?
>A weak pound worth $1.32?
It was only a decade ago that each pound bought over $2.
A combination of fuel duty and the weak pound...
Re: White mice or brown mice?
That's just taking the mickey
I saw a presentation from them a few years ago, they're completely different things. They were stimulating the neurons in a mouse brain and had integrated data from "wet labs" into their model. They showed a video of the simulated neurons firing.
Re: $18M for something that looks like a wardrobe?
>Yes but at least Cray made them octagonal and provided built in seating
EPFL has one in one of their buildings that's used for seating!
They also have some other Cray and other HPC goodness in the Musée Bolo which is free to enter and worth a trip if you're in the area.
Freshly baked storage: Take a pinch of Intel Skylake silicon, some flash powder, sprinkle into IBM's FlashSystem
Any idea why they're not using their own Power CPUs?
Re: Brilliant Heading
Yes sweetie, darling
Mine's the Armani -->
The trains on the New Guildford Line* to London are like that too.
*opened in 1885
We had someone attempt to get their own smartphones on the network by plugging in a D-link SoHo router which also started generously handing out IP addresses. The corporate DNS servers (QIP?) then stopped doling out IP addresses for that subnet meaning a number of the laboratories went down.
We never found out who did it, but you'd expect scientists to know better -->
Re: Hard to Hear
Sounds like a Stairway to Heaven
I think things might get a bit tensor with the AI prediction
Ikea what you did there...
Of of interest when was the last time you saw an IE only site? These days I see Chrome only more often.
Re: What about the Toyotas that get sold to the Middle East ...
>I thought you said 'pringle-mounted' and wondered if that would extend the range.
"Once you pop you can't stop"
> Can someone please explain what backhoe-proofing is
Backhoe is Americanish for the rear digger on a JCB
>Any guesses, what "reducing an error rate by up to 20 times" might mean in English?
They mean a 95% reduction in errors, but trying to make it sound good...
Re: Swansea 0 London 13 mil
I'd have thought that near Cheltenham would be better for obvious reasons -->
A very good point AC
Re: Speaking of outdated kit
>there wasn't even a Pentium 4 non-desktop CPU
I had one in an IBM T20. It was unfeasibly slow, I'd start the boot process and head over to the canteen to buy a coffee instead of waiting for it...
The next machine work gave me was a Dell D620 with a Core 2 Duo, it felt soooo fast!
