Rolls Royce Developing Drone Cargo Ships
Or a submarine. A nuclear submarine.
How Mobile Apps Are Reinventing the Worst of the Software Industry
You've never experienced the meaty crack of a snooker ball in a sock?
Sound System Simulates the Roar of a Rocket Launch
Can this be installed in a nuclear submarine and transported to the Marianas Trench?
Why Birds Fly In a V Formation
Yeah, but it's no fun trying to stuff a chicken into a wind tunnel that's two sizes too small.
A Short History of Computers In the Movies
You lucky, lucky bastards!
Satanists Propose Monument At Oklahoma State Capitol Next To Ten Commandments
It should be in the form of an undead Jeff Hanneman, brutalizing a guitar.
Piracy Offers Heavy Metal a New Business Model
I got a Slayer one for 1000JPY from Tower Records in Akihabara once. Once.
Buying music here's like getting punched in the balls.
Australian Intelligence HQ Blueprints Hacked
This is just normal spy stuff. The real problem is that the people being spied upon are obviously incompetent with regards to their anti-spying countermeasures.
Seriously, who puts their top secret stuff on the Internet anyway?
Of course, how do we know that they got the real plans? They may be saying this to make us *think* that they got the real plans, when in fact the real plans are elsewhere, or something. Anyway, the ability to hack people's servers is insignificant next to the power of the Force.
Ethernet Turns 40
Smoke signals?! You kids and your communicating-instantly-over-long-distances, in my day we carved our messages into stone tablets, and some poor bastard had to physically carry them (sometimes with the help of a surly camel) to their destination. A shattered tablet, I mean dropped packet, meant that the stonewright had to start chiseling all over again!

Old Skool. It's all about GOLDEN BOMBER! now.
Paul's Call To Abolish the TSA, One Year Later

It's like on the one hand, the marketing people would very much like people to visit the US and spend money, but on the other hand the people that you first meet resent your presence.
Disney Announces "One Star Wars Movie Per Year" Plan

Windows 8.1 May Restore Boot-To-Desktop, Start Button
Is it not a case of simply repartitioning and re-installing on the now blank disk anymore?
Linux Fatware: Distros That Need To Slim Down
Heh. After some manly wrestling with the exact VM problem described, I eventually found those nice, small Debian server OSes. But then my company said, no, no you simply *must* use our approved version of Red Hat (tuned for a desktop, with all that stupid GUI stuff and desktop backgrounds). Now my VMs are all outrageously outsized again.
All I want is something that has enough to get the system into a usable console-only state, and devtools so I can install or compile the app-specific bits and pieces. Screen would be nice too, this stupid RH thing didn't even have that.
French Police Unsure Which Twin To Charge In Sexual Assaults
That's easy. Make them do it to each other. The guilty one will soon confess.
