This video is nothing more than an ad.

There's an old urban legend about a guy leaving the driver's seat of an RV (on cruise control) to use the bathroom. Personally I've never believed it, but it does serve to illustrate something about expectations.

My story was setting the cruise control on the RV on a straight section of road to fix themselves a drink, which of course the van crashed.

As for the article...

First part says "According to the user, there’s a small window of opportunity to minimise the damage. That is, if you can backup files faster than the program encrypts them."

Then buried where many don't wonder (towards the end, it mentions "1) Power off the DiskStation immediately to avoid more files being encrypted"

I would think the wise thing would be to exchange the location of the two sentences. least you have some would be hero actually try to find where to start saving at.

Be it a cell phone or Camera, at first I and others found humor in the question, but the more I think bout it the more sense it makes.

Case in point, your not going to wear in on your waist during a football game. -My new phone I even asked for a shoulder holster for my new phone as it's large and prone to gravity thefts. Yes they found humor in it as well but I'll be looking for a nice comfortable one in the mean time.

Can't interest them in facts baffle em with bull sh!t.

As far as I know MS still holds the patent to smiley faces, the fact they have been around since the keyboard made no difference..

A rock "rolling" downhill has the same features of a wheel, when it hits and kills someone can I patent a new weapon?
I'll make much mention of the fact it was revolving to maintain accuracy.

A sling doesn't require a rock/stone to spin, in fact can't really pull it off.

I've never really cared for it, in my area it could be taken for type of a cherry, but of little fact. Now MapPoint that is a search engine name. Google not forgotten with a name selected for what can only be called it's prime directive.

Not forgotten is also the daughter of the mathematician who sued to have that word (Google) back in his memory, I'm sorry but it is a good site name). They did your Dad good, take solstice in that.

The fact Google will control the world in a matter of years should add the cherry. The statement is a matter of the Google glasses that can read Pin Numbers.

Comment: I've believed in the abominable snow man. (Score 0) 198

(now questioned)

I've believe something like the big foot or more importantly the abominable snow man for many years now.

Due to Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571, also known as the Andes flight disaster, in South America, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1... this was a rugby team that crashed and survived close to two months, on a snow whipped mountain top.

The big deal about this crash is they had to eat the dead to live. The book (which I read) mentions two large "ape like creatures were that were "busy" in the route they were taking to get down so they diverted. They tried to wait them out but grew tired of waiting so circled around them. It sounded like they ("apes") were waiting for the survivor out of curiosity.

They might of of been called abominable snow men in the book but there was no real clue what they were other than very large, ape looking beings (given bears they could of been).
