  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    Though if said frail mother-in-law is also willing to relocate, care costs in Scotland considerably lower that in England at present - only need to pay for accomodation, not care. Whether that would continue to be the case in the...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    a) some credible suggestions on how to make Brexit work (it's clear that it's happening anyway, so let's see someone trying constructively to soften the blow) Maybe like the suggestions made by the Scottish Government in their Brexit document? HTML...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    It does seem likely that some of the other EU member states would want to make things awkward for Scotland, namely Spain since they really really don't want to encourage their own separatists to try a similar plan. That's a...
  • Commented on The internet of decay
    OK, so here's your exam question from Database Design 101: I've got this schema already as part of a directory system. Omitting various fields irrelevant to current exercise- Table "Persons", fields PersonUID (unique), NaturalPerson (boolean), DateofBirth, DateofDeath, Meta Table "Person_Names",...
  • Commented on The internet of decay
    Which is why physically embedding hardware in architecture is a bad idea. Fortunately, most buildings aren't going to have that, because it is (a) expensive, and(b) not matching typical construction arrangements. Sure the fancy offices custom built for a tech...

    Not USB standard. Well there's no particular reason not to use the USB hardware standard on the data device side, so long the car receiving specs are designed for security. Having a funny hardware port will give no actual security...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Not wanting to derail the conversation from the UK/US element, but that pre-supposes a continuing UK anyway. With Ms May & co determined to charge on with a Hard Brexit, there is a very real prospect of Scotland voting for...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    There's no doubt revocation would be possible if both sides want it. Possibly arguments about the exact mechanism, but doable somehow. If the UK wants to revoke but the EU doesn't that would be problematical, and legally unclear. The ECJ...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    Once Art.50 is activated, in terms of existing law it takes unanimity on the EU side to extend the negotiation period or reverse the activation. I don't see a lot of goodwill towards Westminster for that to happen. May &...

    For some reason that immediately calls to mind Ben Elton's novel "Stark"......
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    So the most optimistic position is to invoke Hanlon's razor. There is of course an intermediate position, that it is not a plan per se but merely the convergence of multiple players all having limited personal goals in that general...
  • Commented on A reminder
    Look, the reason that a government - at least a democracy or a republic - should not be run like a business, as I realized a few weeks ago, is that businesses are *monarchies", with an absolute ruler, the CEO....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    Certainly there are still a good chunk of "middle class" comfortably well off lawyers : looking at Solicitors 10+PQE, in a medium to large firm, Associate, partner, or consultant who don't still have either a student loan or a massive...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    You are a couple of decades behind the times if you consider "lawyers" as a high end job. While there are a tiny minority of lawyers in UK & USA who have make a substantial income from their practice, and...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    The EU is under no obligation to negotiate any terms with the UK until Art 50 is engaged, and initial reponses appear to be that they have no intention of doing so. So negotiating terms and then running a referendum...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Codename: PAPER SHIELD Classification Infiltration/Defensive ward Description and deployment The device is constructed as an old fashioned clipboard, containing a ward circuit wired within the body and connected to the metal clip. A page with an incomplete activation diagram is...
