hmmm time to do a full backup of my ST1000LM024... and look for an SSD upgrade while that copies!

+Cheadle DATA Recovery Ltd any specific early symptoms to look out for?
 
Yet another ST1000LM024 Samsung in for #datarecovery; heads stuck to the platter. Success rate is excellent. http://ow.ly/Ow9qw
There has been a high incidence of mechanical failure in Samsung / Seagate Momentus hard disk drives. CDR - Manchester Data Recovery has received a number of these in the last few weeks all with identical failures.

This particular type of failure can happen at any point and with out warning. The heads get stuck to the platter surface during normal use. When SSDs fail it also tends to be with very few symptoms ahead of a catastrophic failure. Thanks for sharing.

Even supposedly kind and intelligent Muslims cannot be trusted.

Religion - not even once
A British medic recruited at least 16 fellow students from the UK to join the Islamic State group, a BBC investigation finds.

I'm sure there are literally thousands of people that would be willing and capable of doing their job at half the wage.

I, for one, will welcome our new robot overlords.
Bring on the autonomous trains.
Tube staff, including rather well remunerated drivers, have walked out amid another pay dispute with TfL. Is this reasonable?

During Warrington's 34-24 victory over Leigh, Warrington's prop forward Ashton Sims had a microphone attached to him and exposed the emotion that's present in a Challenge Cup quarter-final.

How to Get Started  - 
 
Hi folks, I've been tinkering away on some software to do real-time stabilisation of atmospheric turbulence and frame stacking...

These videos were processed a while ago with the source images being graciously supplied by +Steven Doye. I've not had much time lately to work on it but am hoping to progress it soon.

To do so I need my own kit, so I'm looking for recommendations for telescopes...these are my top contenders

Any pros/cons/suggestions for which would be better kit to work with?

Is the loss of resolution due to the 40mm narrower aperture worth the extra 250mm focal length? Would the shorter-wider Newtonian be better with a 2x Barlow? I have access to a selection of point grey and ximea cameras that have c/cs mounts.

Reminds me of the analogy my maths teacher used to explain the difference between accuracy and precision. There appears to be a systematic error in your aim, which although very precise, is inaccurate.

+Rhys Taylor the choice isn't between 8 and 9 planets. If you change the definition of what a planet is by removing the rule that disqualifies Pluto, which is that it hasn't cleared it's orbit, then you have to immediately add at least three more planets; Charon, Ceres, and Eris. There at least another dozen objects in orbit around our sun that will also probably qualify as planets once we confirm more precisely what we know about them. There are potentially a few hundred more that aren't discovered yet, based on what we've found so far compared to what we've surveyed. I think they should probably all be classified as planets, but didn't want you to think we would only have nine planets.
