Yeah.. my employer is already worried about a rumour that links gaming to violence.. I've no idea why, that guy from accounts who ran rampage shooting people in our office clearly hadn't played that much Halo.. His master chief outfit wasn't even realistic.
I knew i'd backed a winner.. I'm with the clever crowd. I've emailed my family to look at this thread.. my mum wants to know what a spunkymonkey is.
God help anybody who used facebook and this app... there's every chance they will get home tonight and find an imposter in bed with their wife.
I agree with all of the above. I don't understand it but this guy sounds like he knows what he is talking about.
True, The nations who are leaving stuff in space should be responsible for trying to remove as much of their mess as possible. Leaving the Envisat Earth observation satellite floating around should not be permitted (I know.. who polices space etc)
Can't we just remove the larges pieces? Surely we could "drag" some of this larger stuff back down to earth?
I did wonder about that to be honest but have come to the conclusion that they want to keep people hanging on to get a proper look at it.. If they have not tested it yet they are pretty ambitious to want to fly 6000km!. It has also been picked up by the BBC who are running the story here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7821979.stm They only have badly mocked up pictures too????
I agree - it looks awesome.. that is something that I can see a serious practical use for, especially in places like Australia with massive areas of land with little or no population / buildings to speak of. Would be very cool if you could fly most of the way to your neighbours or nearest town and then drop down, pack the "wings" away and drive into town..
It is not the first flying car - check out this bad boy - it begins its journey from London to Tombouctou tomorrow! http://www.skycarexpedition.com/the_expedition.php
My wife has just come over to me (she listens to Radio 1) and told me that I need to install another browser on all our machines.. I guess she has never noticed that we are a Ubuntu household!! At least the message is getting across to normal non techie users at the moment that IE is bad..

HerculesMO asks: "I am a Windows Systems Administrator and work for a pretty large corporation. I know that I'm underpaid for what I do, and as such, I've been looking for another position. The problem is however, that a lot of potential positions ask for what you are currently making -- and it's a bargaining chip that the company I interview with will (and have) used to negotiate salary." Given that businesses usually base the salaries of new hires on their previous job, how can one arrange a fair salary if they were badly underpaid?
