... can get you fired?? WTF!
It's political correctness gone mad.
Thanks for the explanation!
I guess using vacuum could be an alternative, but more expensive...
Could someone explain why Helium is used please?
Re: Is my math dodgy?
spare a thought for those that last 3 months or 6 months.
I would rather spare a thought for those that last 1 day more than the warranty duration :doh:
Re: French satellite businesses
Money back? Why? It's UK decision to leave EU, UK has to deal with the consequences.
If you book a room in a hotel and leave in the evening, good luck to have a refund.
What does Belgacom think about it?
According to the leaked documents GCHQ probed Belgacom's infrastructure for years. According to the leaked documents 'Operation Socialist' has been qualified by the head of the GCHQ's Network Analysis Centre as a success.
Snowden subsequently described Operation Socialist as the "first documented example to show one EU member state mounting a cyber attack on another
In the Good Ol' Days
No surprise people accessing your website accessing your website in 1995 expected everything being free.
In those days the WWW was not yet the mix of supermarket, brothel and deathtrap it became later, it was a place where academics, schools and nerds were exchanging knowledge for free in a Star-trek like utopia. It didn't last long, like most of utopias
What a load of PR BS
With a game-changing ability to [...] tackle terrorism
So F-35 will stop 'lone wolves' stabbing randomly people in the street? No shit!
If you can’t see us coming, you won’t be able to stop us
The 1999 F-117A shootdown was an event that took place on 27 March 1999, during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia [...] when an Army of Yugoslavia unit used an S-125 Neva/Pechora to down a Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk stealth aircraft of the United States Air Force
Re: 'Robots would also be unlikely to forget the SD card for their cameras'
To date ESA is the only space entity that has *EVER* successfully landed a mission on the surface of a comet. To date India is the only country that has *EVER* successfully be able to launch its first mission to Mars. So what? Does that make their cock bigger? Is this the point of space exploration?
Re: This is why science rocks
If placebo works, homeopathy also works.
So does Voodoo, witchcraft and astrology...
I bought one of those recently (Xiaomi M365). For the price the item is impressive. It's a good alternative to go to work rather than taking car or (motor)bike. Riding one is legally a grey area here in France. Technically, it's forbidden to drive one on roads (when electric bicycles are allowed, don't ask for MPs to be coherent), and it's tolerated on pavement, as long as you don't go faster than a pedestrian. It's also tolerated to drive one in bicycle lane, but it's just a tolerance. But living in Southern France, policemen are more relaxed and didn't bother me with such details for the moment.
I do not understand why these electric scooters aren't consider as bicycles, as long as they do not exceed a speed of 25 km/h (0.0002% of the maximum velocity of a sheep in a vacuum), are equipped with lights and brakes.
Re: "It won't"
Worth mentioning the accident rate for single engined fighter is actually lower than that for twin engined ones.
Not surprisingly, there are more engine-related crashes for single engined fighters than twin engined ones.
As one simple datum to consider, between FY1990 and FY2004, the single-engine F-16 suffered 80 Class A engine-related mishaps for a rate of 1.31 per 100,000 flight hours. The twin-engine F-15 suffered 21 engine related Class A engine-related mishaps for a rate of .64 per 100,000 flight hours.
If UK was not so much europhobic, it could have buy some Rafale, it's a twin-engine aircraft with combat-proven efficiency, and much less expensive than the F35.
I guess the 51st state wasn't free to buy what it wants to equip its air force...
If TESCO knows, then NSA knows and by proxy GCHQ knows also
An advice for Mr. Dabbs.
Keep this article somewhere, you'll be able to reuse it a few years with just replacing "blockchain" by the next hyper-hyped technology. Et hop, Blockchain will offer you a quite work-free column with a simple "search and replace".
If I got it well
somebody was required to manage the project managers?

What a bunch of vicious lizards. I cross fingers for GDPR enforcement agencies falling on their back in a near future. May they take no prisoner and show no mercy!
UK wants to quit the flatsharing to stop to pay the rent, but still wants a room and a word on how the flat is managed!
The most hypocritical part is UK being offended when others answer UK to sod off.
Re: I do not imagine Apple will take long.
1. The drastic decline in birth rate to virtually zero seen everywhere in Eastern Europe (and worst in Russia) in the 1990-es and early 2000-s is now reversed.
2. The most recent stats show decrease of alcohol consumption per capita by a factor of more than 2.
Problem is, it's hard to believe any official figures coming from Putinland, and there's no independent ones anymore. So any statistic has to be taken carefully.
The evidence points 100% to fake scrapping
Hi Comrade! How is the weather in Moscow?
Something missing in the timeline
May, 7 2018: Ivanka Trump is granted seven trademarks by Chinese authorities
May, 11 2018: the Chinese government floated a $500 million loan to a project partnered with the Trump organization.
Those Chinese are clever businessmen, they know well how to use corruption with the greedy ones.
These guys are lucky
In the Us they would have been shot, just in case.
Harvested energy, for instance.
Producing hydrogen is much a better way to store electricity than batteries. Also, hydrogen-powered cars have a much better range than electric ones using batteries.
Let's push for hydrogen-powered vehicles now, and let make Gulf clouds irrelevant
"How Einstein slipped through the net is anyone's guess"
Haircut. Looking like a mad scientist made him famous.
And Politicians _love_ Face de Bouc. Anything flattering their ego is what they want over everything else.
Hail to GPRD!
If these US companies don't want to make business with EU, good for them, and good riddance.
Anyway, it tells a lot about how they respect their users' privacy ("Our users' privacy matters a lot to us blah blah blah...")
Update or not update, that is the question!
If you use RemoteApps, do not install the April Update (v.1803), it would break it.
For the ones having problems of Z-Order with RemoteApps using W10 version 1709 (Fall Creators Update), you can install patch KB4103714 which should fix the problem.
For the ones who didn't update, you made the right choice :-/
Hail to the coyrights!
They will enable Michael Jackson and David Bowie to be able to live from their hard work.

Aliens will pay for it, believe me!
Why dont they make the computations usefull rather than pointless? Im thinking of the old SETI screen saver (20yrs ago...)and there was a medical number cruncher as well
You mean Folding@home I presume?
Problem is, you can't expect speculating to make money from that, just helping real people in the real life.
Re: Faecesbook and Twitter et al?
Twitter _is_ useful: it shows the World how clownish Trumpy is.
All this energy used to pay ransoms to cybercooks and to try to make profit from a speculative bubble :sigh:
Lancasters were also used to bomb the city of Le Havre on September 5th and 6th, 1944. Ordered by general Crocker, the same who refused to allow evacuation of civilians by the Germans, these bombings targeted the town center and killed over 2,000 civilians with no german casualties.
After the refusal from the Germans to capitulate, bombings continued the next days targeting this time german defenses. The town was taken in 48 hours by british troops with less than 500 casualties.
5,000 civilians were killed in the process.
Lancasters may be a good souvenir in the UK, it is not necessary the same elsewhere
Trumpy the destructor
I thought Trumpy was a clown. In fact, he's much closer to be the Antichrist, only able to destroy things and propagate hatred.

These ads being efficient or not is irrelevant. They demonstrate there was an attempt to meddle in the election. Also, one could easily imagine these ads was the only vector use for the meddling, they were another ones, as show the bank accounts of some lawyers or ex-campaign managers.
Factory Act established a 56-hour working week, and put a stop to children under 10 being used as chimney sweeps, and now BT has to lay off 13,000 wage slaves. I hope this socialist nonsensical law will be soon abolished!

There are people still buying symantec's stuff? 0_o!

What could possibly go wrong?
Let's them do try that
Seeing how GDPR is worded and how european juries will judge according the spirit of the law, FB will have a hard time in Europe. It will take years and many legal battles, but in the end FB will be (hopefully) screwed. Adding to that the latest display of "unilationism" of the US administration, Europe has no reason not to be harsh with US companies that do not respect european laws.
increasingly political body between French-speaking and non-French speaking members.
you mean English-speaking and non-English speaking members?
The way some get money for this kind of "study" is a mystery to me.
This study lacks the proper question: in the end, whose guy gets the girl, the one with the shiny car or the one with the boring utility van? Looking at how the things works for other species, the shiniest may be the one with the better luck to mate.
