Re: My device was speaking to me in tongues

I dunno, we are lit by the light of more than a thousand suns - but they are a very very long long away and I doubt the whole output of M31 that we receive would warm you up very much.

Foil snack food bags make a decent Faraday cage, judge finds

Toni the terrible
Joke

foil

It's a pity I have never seen a snack bag suitable to replace my tinfoil hat, there are some big ones; but they don't do well in the washing machine when I want to clear out the grease (not just from my hair). However, seems reasonable to keep my wallet or purse nice and RF protected.

Re: This is what happens

And that applies to politics too; faceless corporation (faceless government - you cant call Trump & May real faces) antiquated hardware (government systems of all kinds) - all this is common with effective monopolies that fail to pay reasonable taxes - so how is that our fault that we the majority have no real choice.

America 'will ban carry-on laptops on flights from UK, Europe to US'

Toni the terrible
Boffin

I have wondered why Li batteries of any type are allowed in aircraft. Take the device without a battery and pick one up at your destination, expensive and annoying but much safer.

If the device cant have its battery replaced why use it?

As for the security bollks make USA citizen travellers submit to the same bollks their country applies to others - its only fair after all.

Anyway do you really, reallly want to haul your bestest electronics via air, where theft is not unknown?
