  1. Was going to buy one - but was put off by it's closed architecture :-(
  2. I know a family of Ords (farming family), who I believe originated from the Sheepwash area around a 100 years ago.
  3. After an evening writing code to render ESRI ShapeFile map data in near-real-time, not very pissed! How pissed are you? Or more to the point, who are you?!
  4. Do not invest in a venture you know nothing about or have no lasting interest in! Very expensive!
  5. As I dont live in WDC anymore (Ashington until I was 12yrs old, then Bedlington until I was 21yrs old), I cant really comment on WDC's performance. However, as a member of a main party (the wife has stood for two years running in North Tyneside councillor elections), I have a rough idea how councils work. Councillors are largely 'figure heads' and the employees of the council do the actual 'work'... The word 'work' is may be a misleading term having been on the opposing side of a council employee with regards to planning etc.... We could not build a conservitory as drivers on the A19 (0.5miles
  6. To be given a 'job', the employer has to assertain whether a individual can do that job. This does not just mean whether he/she can do it, but to ensure all others around he/she are not affected by he/she. In this case the MoD got it wrong from the beginning. Who is to blame?
  7. Nope! Have enough usernames/passwords to remember without aliases!
  8. Pricing is simple. Charge what ever you can get away with! Fact! Why is the UK more expensive than many other countries? Quite simple really!
  9. Hi ThreeGee ;-) The point I was making was that we all know DNA is not an exact science; were as goverments and corporations try and tell us that 'encrypted digital information' is secure and exact. So I personally believe DNA is of great use. Even if a person NEVER commits a crime; they can be eliminated in the very early stages of any crimminal enquiry. Past cases where entire villages have been DNA tested because of a rape etc could be distant history if the authorities had info on all people anyway. ID cards, forgetting the logistics etc, are NOT secure! Not because they can be issued to t
  10. DNA - yes Cards - may be I reckon every one should have their DNA taken and stored securely by the goverment. Starting with newborn children. ID Cards... As an engineer, with a specialistion in cryptology (factoring, number theory, etc), no system is 100% secure. 1024bit modular exponentiation encryption once once deemed unbreakable except for govements and very large corporations. This figure is now 2048, and before long 4096bits. As massively parallel computational systems (not bog standard computers, but ASICs/FPGAs etc) get faster and larger, plus the further research in large-number-facto
  11. Great idea. The majority of law abiding people have nothing to worry about. We live in a rural location with no surrounding houses, so our property also has a number of CCTV cameras - although we generally only record the occasional late night or early morning fox or rabbit! My only fear is that some one monitoring public cameras may use the information he/she aquires for other means (eg. sees someone on the street, therefore may know their house is empty etc).
  12. As I dont live in Bedlington any more (for about 12 years now); what is the old Police Station now used for?
  13. You obviously haven't driven any decent cars then...
  14. We live in Holystone, not far from the planned new site. We also have problems from Holystone Waste; who recycle household waste just over a field from us (the actual site is next to a housing estate, so we get off a bit lightly in comparision). We all know that recycling is environmentally sound. But why near concentrations of populations? Bedlington used to have a land fill site in the early 80's (I think), in the remains of the opencast mine between Bedlington & Choppington. Away from housing etc.... Why cant they do that now - somewhere where is hurts no one?
