So was that from a jar as it is, or did you have built it from scratch?

Wow, these are absolutely amazing.
The European Space Agency has just released some fantastic close-up images taken by the Philae lander of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This release came out along with a passel of scientific papers (in Science magazine behind a paywall; here’s a summary) about results from the Rosetta probe’s lander, too. When I...

Dear Government,

Appearing on Q&A is all about being accountable to the public.

If you won’t be accountable to the public, then you don’t deserve to be in office.

+Tom Storey I don't mind the new logo. For me, it reminds me of Futura, and as a result has a very retro-vintage feel.

However, what really annoys me is the fact that the height of the lowercase letter o doesn't match the height of the horizontal bar on the capital G.

What's amusing is that the old logo also has the non-matching heights, but actually the difference is more pronounced in the old logo, making it ironically less jarring.

So I have a valid Windows 8.1 license, so apparently am eligible to get a free Windows 10 upgrade.

However, I don't have Windows 8.1 currently installed on my PC, and when installing Windows 10 it doesn't accept my Windows 8.1 key, nor do I have anyway to "reserve" my upgrade.

This is despite the fact that I had Windows 8.1 installed a month or two ago (which I since wiped) and I have a confirmation e-mail from Microsoft saying that I have successfully reserved my upgrade.

By the looks of it, I have to install Windows 8.1 again (no, make that download and install again), go through the reservation process, and do an in-place upgrade. Eurghhhhhhhh.

I was pretty happy without Windows installed at all. Pretty tempted to go back to that state again, to be honest.

Sorted. Secure boot was enabled and Linux is now partition 7 of 8. Annoying not being able to boot from CD or USB to fix it.

After three and a half agonising weeks, mainly doing the runaround with Telstra (and eventually giving up on), I finally have Internet access with +Internode at my apartment in Glebe!

Naked internode works fine for me, especially since changing to a 'reliable' profile. I'm almost 5km from the DSLAM, so it's not super fast.
