The View From Inside A Fireworks Show

richy freeway Cool video (200 comments)

Crappy camera work but I enjoyed it anyway. Surprised I haven't seen someone do it before (I realise someone may have).

Ask Slashdot: How To Bequeath Sensitive Information?

richy freeway Re:Why complicate things? (208 comments)

You're assuming he's never going to update the storage before he dies. If he dies tomorrow, then it won't take twenty or thirty years for the will to be executed and the drive fired up.

If he lives for another 10 years and another popular interface and storage format comes along then I'd assume (based upon the effort put in so far) that he'd replace the USB hard drive with whatever the next big thing is.

So what was your point again?

You don't have to pay the TV licence if you own a TV, only if you watch broadcast TV. You can have an antenna connected and listen to the radio with your TV and still not need a licence.

What the fuck is up with all these BBC International links at the moment? We can't view them over here without a proxy/VPN. Surely another source exists?

The point is that after they have entered their password, the child has 30 minutes of unfettered purchasing power and there is NO warning of this at all.
