The City of London Police are a territorial police force though; they're all (well all of the full time and specials) are sworn constables.
BT can't even offer decent broadband service to the whole of the UK, ffs.
No you don't. If you deliver something by mail you have no guarantee they got it, unless you use a service that requires a signature on delivery. Even then all you might have is a guarantee that *someone* signed for it, not that the person it was addressed to did. Our posties often just sign for things if it's something they can fit through the letterbox and no-one answers.
But then in the UK you don't have to prove they got it, just that you sent it. Proof of postage doesn't cost you anything; you just have to take it to a post office and ask for it rather than using a postbox.
I doubt it's that easy to get restricted airspace put in place. Also jamming devices are generally illegal in the UK (punishable by a two year prison term and/or an unlimited fine).
Actually it's been moderated 80% funny and 20% informative.
Or just build a new base in Cumbria and move it over the border. Shame they got rid of RNAD Broughton Moor really.
Why would you need speech recognition on a London bus? You never talk to the driver. You get on, touch your Oyster card to the reader, and get off when you get to your stop. That's it. It's a flat rate fare. You can't even use cash on them anymore - you have to use an Oyster card.
The vast majority of their users aren't especially smart when it comes to technology. They're essentially office workers - they don't give a stuff about the underlying format, they only care about being able to do their job.
There's actually a standard for writing in C++ for (embedded) safety critical systems, created for the JSF. It exists partly because they were finding it increasingly hard to recruit engineers who knew Ada (or had any interest in learning it).
The main reason to move to 64-bit isn't memory, it's address space. Some other useful things falls out of it in a co-incidental kind of way too, like more registers (which are nice for tight loops).
1994, actually; "Intelligence Services Act (1994)" to be precise. Though GCHQ has been around since the early C20th.
Said act uses wonderfully nebulous language that basically comes down to "we can intercept anything we want because we say so".
The main difference is LTO tapes (and similar) are actually designed so they can be used for archival storage (in the region of 30 years). Hard drives just aren't. If you can get a drive that's been sat in storage - no matter how good - for 20 years to spin up then you're very lucky.
My reading of the sentence was "European and Asian suppliers along with only one US supplier, Tesla; the other US suppliers will just do their own thing."
Except browsers can actually send a header that lists your preferred languages, in order. Chrome can actually does this, although it's buried away under "Advanced Settings". Google just don't pay any attention to it on their servers (apparently).
