the City of London is a square mile business district, the Lord Mayor is the head of the City of London Corporation, and is Fiona Woolf at the moment. Boris is the Mayor of London - that is Greater London, and what Americans think of as London, not the City of London Corporation. It is actually the Livery Companies (like the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists) that elect the Lord Mayor. It is weirder than you think.
If you have a river then you probably don't require a desalinisation plant. It is just about plausible that concentrated saline from a desalinisation plant could be transported to a distant river (by boat) where it would be used for power generation like this.
I like Raspbian, but it would be nice to have the Ubuntu packages built for the Pi.
Bit of the back story on the project page explaining why the Pi didn't have Ubuntu from the start.
Do you still want to do the kite thing? You went about it all wrong, if the request came via the North Carolina LoCo team leader (or probably anyone with an @ubuntu.com email address) it would probably have gone through fine. Random commercial kite manufacturers contact trademarks directly, community advocacy goes through the community structures. If your request is "I want to sell $foo with your logo on it" and you send it practically anywhere the answer will either be "no" or "you look serious, lets talk royalties" but to get to the second answer you have to put in some effort to look serious - and include some numbers. If you don't want the normal rules of the world to apply to you then fine, there is a channel for that, but you didn't use it. If you still want to do it then reply to this and I will put you in contact with the right people.
so the problem was that you type stuff in the dash, that goes to various results providers (scopes) including one that sent it to products.ubuntu.com, which in turn queried the Amazon API for your search term (and the youtube API and some other places) (the new smart scopes thing is a server-side variable bias that it applies to the sources of results). So, products.ubuntu.com gives you some results, in these were some image thumbnail URLs, pointing directly at Amazons image CDN. This means Amazon would see an API query from products.ubuntu.com, followed shortly by some image retrievals from somewhere else on the internet. This could in theory (if Amazon track CDN gets) be used to correlate the images with you and what you search for. What they do now is reverse proxy the images. So you search in the dash and Canonical get your IP address and query, then they ask Amazon for the results and images, then Canonical serve it all up to you. Thus Amazon don't get that tiny fragment of information about what images popped up on your screen in response to a query, and the concept of the images coming from a local CDN node is broken - they come from the node closest to Canonicals server then get served to you from there. So, in short, this is a somewhat inefficient fix to a non-problem identified against one search source of many.
Does anyone have an alternative way to solve this kind of problem?"

or people who fail to take care of their teeth happen to do something else beneficial. I don't see a cause -> effect mapping between these observations.
- Upstart was written before systemd started.
- Unity was released before gnome-shell was released.
- Mir is being released before Wayland.
- Bzr was written before Git started.
- Launchpad was written before Github (and is open source).
Canonical bashing might be all the rage at the moment, but I can see how they are feeling a bit hard done by with all these accusations that they should have used subsequent products instead of the ones they wrote first.
0844 is national rate, not premium. Our office number is one digit away from the Maplin number.
You can get a bit of revenue from an 0844, we don't from ours, but we get it for free as a SIP trunk and we get pretty much free outbound calling. We don't use phones much anyway really, nasty noisy things.
yeah, vertical acceleration with respect to the floor position when you got in, but you are almost lying down in that seat design, so it will be pressing on your back. Rollercoasters will do -1G of acceleration in loops (or a touch more), which added to the 1G of gravity is 0G in the frame of reference of the passengers. They will also easily do 1G at the bottom of the loop (when going faster (yes, I know about teardrop loops)) which adds to the 1G of gravity to give 2G. Some rollercoasters peak at about 5G.
the thing is in a round tube, the centre of mass of the car is below the centre of the tube, it will always rotate such that the centre of mass is pushed to the lowest energy point, so a passenger would only feel vertical G, like sitting in a fast vertical elevator. 2G is a very tame roller coaster, or a fairly brutal elevator. You would certainly feel it, but it wouldn't be that uncomfortable, especially in those fully supportive seats.

it ships (if it does) with a dual boot Ubuntu Touch/Android setup. If you boot into Android you can plug in an HDMI monitor and run Ubuntu desktop on the big screen sharing some stuff between the Ubuntu Desktop operating system and the Android operating system. They promise that sometime after launch they will do the desktop OS trick alongside Ubuntu Touch as well as alongside Android.
So this is an Ubuntu Touch phone, and an Android phone from day 1. If you want to start the Ubuntu Desktop then you can do that from day 1 if you booted into Android and at some point you will be able to start the Ubuntu Desktop from Ubuntu Touch.
So yeah, it is a bit complicated, and has two more operating environments than a phone needs, but if you are going to correct people you do have a bit of an obligation to get your facts in order.
7 minutes * 240 days is 1680 minutes, divide by 60 is 28 hours, divide by 3 is 9 hours 20 minutes. So yeah, if the PC really takes 7 minutes to boot, then 3 days/year is kinda right. This doesn't take into account the fact that it might not be typical, and most people do something else rather than stare at a booting PC.
you heard wrong. new builds and modifications have to be quite well insulated, there are grants available to retrofit decent loft insulation and cavity wall fillings to the older housing stock. We tend to build houses from proper fired clay bricks with tiled roofs rather than bits of wood.
I was trying to enhance images taken from a cheap pan/tilt camera by taking hundreds of stills and using imagemagik to average them together. Works really well. If you don't average them, but take the darkest pixel from your stack of 100 frames, or take the lightest pixel from your stack you see an interesting pattern of the extremes of noise. It was an 8px by 16px repeating pattern of noisiest pixels. Now this worked because the camera was still, I had a stack of near identical frames so the noise was easy to isolate, however it would be pretty much impossible to graft in another image without disrupting the sensor noise.
