It's possible to fly from london to new york in three hours. In fact, you could do for a span of twenty years or so, before concorde was decomissioned. Just because it's possible, doesn't mean it'll become widely available, or even at all available. Ditto driverless cars. The technology will filter down into ordinary cars as extra safety features to augment the driver's slow reactions. For the foreseeable future, anyway.
I had a brief look at the stats - i live in the uk, where pistols are completely illegal to own, and shotgun and rifle possession is rare and heavily regulated. Policemen carry a truncheon! Murder rates in the uk are 1.2(per 100k population per year) Murder rates in the US are 4.7(ditto) Simple?
changing the DNS doesn't help, the IP address is blocked at ISP level. The usual workaround is to google alternative web addresses that point to the same final IP. for instance
if "www.thepiratebay.org" is blocked by your UK ISP, you'll probably find that "http://thepiratebay.ee/" will get you to the same place and not be blocked. I hope that helps.
MPG depends immensely on driving style, so official figures are never going to be exactly right for everybody. I drive on empty roads in 5th gear at 30mph as much as possible, and my car has a total lifetime average of 71 British mpg(or 59mpg in US gallons) since I bought it 25k miles ago. It's an ordinary 5-seater estate car too, not some whacky-looking smart-car or fiat 500. http://www.fuelly.com/driver/jaffacake/fabia can anyone do better than that!?
So I can replace iGoogle with netvibes, we've established that. I'd now like to know how to let google know how displeased I am about their decision to cancel iGoogle. Does anyone have a link I can use to rant at google? I looked around google's help pages for a little while, with no success
all the caches within a few miles radius of wetherby have been temporarily shut down at the request of the police. the cafe owner involved got more advertising than the lost profits from a morning's business would have made. also geocaching as a hobby/sport got some publicity. anyone smell a rat here?
the package had the word "geocache - contents harmless" clearly written on the outside - i saw the pictures in the uk news reports. the website www.geocaching.com (top hit on google if you search "geocache") contains details including locations of almost every geocache in the world; it's free to access. how much more notification do the police need?
