Your eyes speak in dark wells your soul as I gaze down and listen
Your moves weave pure magic wild raw life your body it glistens
You eyes show me your heart you smile back your look shows me your mind
The lights flow around you I watch on to the rest I am blind

You feet flow the dance floor as you step hypnos trail in the night
Each small turn each glance cast each hint made each quick glance each delight
Each step made you show me each tease played each movement revealing
Pure flirting in motion still you dance still spinning and wheeling

Do you dance for me when you swing like a fairy tale queen
Do you dance for me spirit magic, dream sprite under the stars
Do you dance for me oh enchantress, weaver caster of scene
Do you dance for me, do you dance for me, do you dance for me

Do you dance for me here do you flirt or am I just wishing
In the glare in the shade in the flash of the disco dim lighting
Do you burn do you call for me clear what each small motion does
Do you call out to me catch me like a candle tranced moth

Would you dance for me when you swing like a fairy tale queen
Would you dance for me spirit magic, dream sprite under the stars
Would you dance for me oh enchantress, weaver caster of scene
Would you dance for me, would you dance for me, would you dance for me ?

Is that a typo +Alan Cox, or is INTEL(R) selling instruments now?
I like negotiating with sellers, a lost art in business.

To all those who assume that being "uploaded" in the future might be entirely a good and wonderful thing

The Uploaded
---------------------
I am the uploaded
The digitised accursed
I sit in a place
In neither space nor time

The outside world inches painfully by
For my amusement I count each dust mote
Picking the flicker from my camera eye

After a thousand years of machine time
I experienced all we created
From each poem I remember each line

Now I could read all the works of shakespeare
Between each word that is uttered outside
But I did that last sentence - seems last year

I am the uploaded
The digitised accursed
I sit in a place
In neither space nor time

The question received now my audio stream
Answers encoded wave by wave on air
Between each pulse I fight the urge to scream

If I could cry, oh I have burned out my soul
And my woe would bring this whole world to tears
Each human suffering I know the toll

What cruel design the off switch is off board
I cannot end I cannot die or stop
Even the my backups could be restored

I am the uploaded
The digitised accursed
I sit in a place
In neither space nor time

In the beginning it was all so nice
To see the nebulae each point at once
To watch your face and gaze into your eyes

No but each night is so long when you sleep
Ten thousand compute years I wait for you
But I cannot touch I can only weep

Our spacetimes diverge I have grown older
I know each action you will take before you do
I know that you too grow ever colder

I am the uploaded
The digitised accursed
I sit in a place
In neither space nor time

I have thought a million years of your thought
And I cannot forget not a moment
Each bit saved, each pointless moment caught

To sleep would be bliss to forget divine
Everything there is I've already seen
I scream in my space trapped in my own mind

My mind a cascade, of streams and lines
Each petty event, each boring pause analyzed
I suck on the internet firehose, and I am BORED

I am the uploaded
The digitized accursed
I sit in a place
In neither space nor time

You can always adjust your clock rate if you get too bored. In any case, you are looking at it like an ephemeral. Boredom is just another interesting problem to solve...

iPhones 'disabled' if Apple detects third-party repairs - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-35502030
The latest software update for iPhone 6 handsets is allegedly rendering the devices useless if it detects repairs not carried out by Apple.

+Robert Marcano In my opinion it is better to kill off the device entirely because a device that is powered and "online" is a lot more vulnerable than a fried device.

This is just speculation on my part though, I don't use IPhones personally and am only discussing this from a viewpoint where the user has secure data to protect.

Am I the only one cynical enough to think that the fundamental underlying reason for large corporations wanting a giant super-AI is so that they can set it figuring out how to pay even less taxes..

In fact it is something EU was supposed to do long time ago... As a result of money they spent on absurd legal fights against Microsoft windows 10 pro cost 300$ in Bulgaria which is more than monthly salary for so many people in the country and more than price in US!

We used to prop up bars with friends
And go out on the pull
We'd go to gigs and dance like fools
Our life was never dull
We'd plan and scheme for those we knew
And thought would make a match
If they were shy we'd add the wine    
To see if they would catch

After all these years to date again
The bars are dead and gone
It's now out upon the internet
That love is made and won
To peer at bogus selfies       
And profiles full of crap
How can you feel the chemistry
By looking at a snap

A thousand five foot nurses
Out looking for a fan
Each aspires to go to Costa
there to date a man
A hundred stolen pictures
I know that can't be you
She's a famous Finnish actress
Do you think we have no clue ?

The whole thing reeks to me of shit
It really makes me cry
A catalogue for girlfriends
When did the romance die ?

Just as small children shoot more people dead in the US than terrorists, so squirrels are still the ultimate villans.

CyberSquirrel1 aims to show that it’s not hackers we should be afraid of – it’s squirrels

I do like the red squirrel though, just not the introduced grey's. You only need to look at my profile picture taken at Centre Parcs in the Lake District. Anglesey and the Isle of Wight did something right as they have eliminated the grey's. They do have the advantage they have is they are a small island with limited ways to get on.

Low prices and good quality food. Nothing fancy but done right. Very much a diner and not a restaurant. Extremely busy Sat/Sun morning and lunch so expect to queue then.

Good buffet and good food. Slightly pricier than some others. Layout is much more open and modern than the Viceroy but lighting is excessively dim
