I was amused to see that TFA was a front page BBC article. For comparison I went to CNN and FOX to see what was reported there. Didn't find anything on either of those 2 sites.
I forgot to mention
I guess because the air is warmer it's less dense, making this kind of record "easier"?
The record was set about 100k SW of Melbourne (Actually the Australian Automotive Research Centre near Anglesea) in Victoria, in Winter.
The temps there in the last week were around 12 Deg C (55 F)
So much for 'less dense' air
The big advantage is that all my computers are reachable through the internet
Depending on your point of view, that may also be considered as a down-side.
Slashdot can't be far behind, right?
I've heard that you can only get ipv6 connections if your comments are in uni-code.
So maybe the real solution is complaining about it on Slashdot. That gets things done.
That depends on what the actual problem is that he is trying to solve. If it is trying to fix the phone, or his experience
Given human nature I can see this ending up not so happy for everyone.
Be glad they are not stupidly trying to set up nuclear missiles on Cuba in order to get a "head start" in a nuclear world war like the Russians did.
You make think that you're a big balled freedom fighting hero
It seems you have already decided who is responsible.
Well it was either the pro-Russian, Ukrainian separatist freedom fighters, or the Nationalistic, Ukrainian independence freedom fighters who did it.
Which group do you think the OP is referring to? And why?
To me, this almost sounds like the Twitter messages from the rebels claiming that they captured a BUK were correct - the Russians didn't directly lend the rebels a BUK, but they're helping them cover it up after the fact in order to stop any news coming out that goes against their message of the rebels being poor, oppressed ethnic Russians who need protection from their "home country".
What sort of "rebels" would have the training an ability to set up and operate a crew served weapon? I severely doubt that such a system is "point and shoot" as it has 3 separate, independent mobile systems.
Slavian Farmers Militia ("Seperatists") bored and trigger-happy and with easy access to Russian military hardware.
But is a SAM system something a "farmer" can just point and shoot? Or does it take training and expertise in order to shoot down an aircraft at 30,000 feet?
My expectation is that regardless of which side shot the missile, that they would have had to have been a trained crew - even just to correctly set the system up.
Sorry, but I'm not a native speaker and such intricacies sometimes elude me. Seems strange to me that such a little article makes all the difference, because after all, you yourself call other countries "the US" or "the Netherlands".
And last time I looked both the US and the Netherlands were independent countries.
The US and the Netherlands are special cases. For example in English you don't say "The Australia", "The Brazil" or "The Canada".
Here is the story Malaysia Airlines plane crashes on Ukraine-Russia border - live
The video is referenced as
12.20 Tom Parfitt has picked up an intriguing Russian-language detail.
Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukraine's interior minister, has made the latest of a series of claims that a Buk missile launcher allegedly used by pro-Russian rebels to knock down Flight MH17 was smuggled away into Russia overnight. He highlights a video which purportedly shows the launcher with two of its missiles missing, writing "it's not hard to guess why".
“It was exactly these missiles which brought death to almost 300 innocent passengers of the ill-fated Malaysian Boeing,” he added.
Mr Gerashchenko says the video was made by Ukrainian intelligence agents at 4.50am as the launcher was on the move towards the Russian border near the town of Krasnodon.
We obviously can't confirm it's authenticity.

where else can you get hundreds of channels of TV i hate and crappy internet for one low price of $200 a month?
what else would i do if i didn't have 400 channels of TV? how else would i watch commercials?
We changed comcast TV to the lowest package that you can get - just the local stations, and if we want something else we watch Netflix. Even with just the local stations there is still too much crap on TV.
However if we could have gone a la carte for less price than a package, then we would have carved out the crap. Of course that will never happen.
