Re: UK going to the dogs

As much as a girl can tell, I doubt they will manage to trace the operator. He can be hundreds of miles away (a ham radio operator could be his hobby?). Several drones place in the area, repeaters around the airport connecting to drones at random with an operator or a simple script controlling the ...

Re: UK going to the dogs

When they catch the guy doing this (and let's face it, it is a guy). I think the punishment should be to be left alone in a locked room,  with 500 people who had their flights cancelled. No cameras or questions asked.   Hell thath no fury like a person who has got stuck in airports struggling to get...

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

Feel free to make up other fun scenarios! The 6 counties joins the Free State and all your problems are solved. If there's a majority for it on both sides of the Border, I'm A-OK with it. Have fun with the DUP. Is it not getting time to have the Irish reunification Referendum? I believe under the T...

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

One of the interesting technical points about this brexit chaos is, given parliament is completely deadlocked (in both Major parties and as a whole) if a second referendum is required to "cut the gordian knot" (the current obligatory cliche) how could such a Referendum be designed? These things are ...

Re: archaeology

Even The Daily Star (as per your link) has the story categorized under “weird news”.
Last week it was in Turkey. 
Isn't it in a crate in a (US) government warehouse?

Re: RIP

Ricky Jay, phenomenal magician. RIP Truly amazed having watched a couple of videos on Youtube, how did I not come across this individual before? His diction alone is a reason worth watching him perform. RIP, indeed. I really liked his acting work too. I always through the loose trilogy of David Mam...

Re: Democratic presidential contenders in 2016

That's because these talented people are busy debugging the infamous >1GB monolithic binary written in multiple languages, including C and Fortran. Also, Bloomberg's selling point is not the quality of models (even though for many simple uses they're absolutely fine), but data. It used to be also B...

Re: Democratic presidential contenders in 2016

Didn't Peter Carr do a stint there? I must say, (apart from being able to rapidly rotate 3D vol surface diagrams around) the quantitative power of their product always struck me as limited given the talent available. But then again I have a strong aversion to software where you need to know an arcan...
