Superb. Thank you Michael, that has made my day. Every day should start with a great actual LOL. Today it has for me. (big cheesy grin)
The problem is that for Cameron to change his mind on trying to ban strong encryption, would imply that he was somehow wrong to try and ban it in the first place. This of course will not happen. Politicians HATE it when they are shown to be wrong.
A bit of heated rhetoric mentioning Paedophiles, Terrorists and Tor will put paid to this report, and GCHQ will continue on their merry way treating the entire population as enemies/criminals.

Always wanted to know how to make an origami crane?
You get the idea. There is bound to be something there that will do, or can be adapted.
Just clicked on the Metamod link, and foom. No Slashdot. Aaargh. I've broken Slashdot, boy am I going to be in trouble now.
The first time I have seen
You just don't realise how much you are used to something being there until it suddenly isn't.
was the first game I ever played on computer.
DEC-20 mainframe with a teletype as output.
It too a full minute to reprint the board after each move. With 60 moves per game it took a while to finish a game...
1979 it was.
I still have a soft spot for reversi. Found a fun clone on a Japanese game site a while back which I play when I feel the need for a bit of distraction.
Well, you're quite simply factually wrong (the law applies equally to everyone), but have fun with it.
Oh I thought you guys used cash. I actually canceled my debit card, they are just a terrible idea in the US. They do nothing for you credit score and if your PIN gets compromised it can be a PITA to recover your money.
I'm basing my view around all the rumours that are flying around it.
One question? Is there a really good supply of STRONG coffee and/or coca-cola available?
You need something to deprive your body from water and sleep? How long do you plan to live anyway?

apple->print industry: conquest being launched, lift off seconds away
*creators will make money from live gigs, promotions, advertising, personalized content, etc. no distributors needed. distributors will evolve into hype machines and portals/ gateways delivering mass audiences to content. creators will continue to sign contracts to them for a cut of revenue, for delivering audiences. but its not necessary to sign a contract at all to become successful, its voluntary and usually for the pop bands
**the movie industry has always, and will always, despite every new tech threatening to kill it, fill cinema houses and make money thataways
***ad revenue is real and genuine for newspapers and will always exist. it will be a lot smaller, yes. and some superstar reporters will spin off from newspapers and become their own internet reporting gateways (see nikki finke: http://www.deadline.com/hollywood/ ). in this way the internet will "atomize" some newspaper reporting where the departments/ individual reporters will report directly to readers, unrelated to any particular newspaper, much like musicians don't need distributors anymore. despite all the doom and gloom about newspapers, nothing on the internet can ever or will ever replace the service, for example, the poughkeepsie journal delivers for the residents of poughkeepsie, new york ( http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/ )
Even if your car had such a bizarre tank, I can't see any "orders of magnitude" difference there between 1/2 and 1/4. You do?
I am curious how and by whom you think actually discovered the flaw in the IPCC's claims.
Well actually anyone questioning these claims when first produced were called "crackpot" by the IPCC.
Care to back that up?
