    Aiui, thye pick up any metal - as a few folks with interesting piercings have discovered. ABB

    GOLD

    Prompts me to ask if anybody has ever tried taking gold coins through an airport lately? I'm thinking the best bet is to mix it in with regular coins and put it through the hand luggage scanner. Anybody fancy doing a trial run with a sov or two and reporting back? ABB

    Not to mention Bliar, who now works for JPM.... ABB

    GOLD

    CNBC=ShoeshineboyTV. Yes they keep talking about gold - clear sign that it is about to go down IMO. IIRC January is a seasonal highpoint for gold (Wedding season + Chinese New Year). ABB

    Could somebody explain what the O's and X's mean, and how they are generated? They always look like a whacky game of connect4 to me ABB
  7. Welcome back, that last post should go in the BLACK SWAN thread. ABB

    Beware, commodity index rebalancing ahead ABB
  12. What about that shade of grey called 'reasonable'? Difficlt to define, but I'm sure most of us would know it when we see it. ABB

    GOLD

    I had an issue with the iced-tea implementation supplied with Fedora 8. (Applet not initialised). The fix is to uninstall iced-tea packages (but due to the large number of dependencies it will remove a lot of other stuff). Install the sun JRE/JDK, reinstall things like Open Office etc. ABB

    If that's the case, then fine - only the subtlety of the message was not conveyed by defacing Ker's chart. To me (as a recovering scientist) TA looks like voodoo, but I like to hear all sides of an argument and draw my own conclusions. ABB

    Poor form. Ker is as entitled to his opinion as your are to yours. No matter how right you may have been lately, throwing stones is simply throwing stones. ABB

    Bicycle theft - How to stop it?

    What about chipping them, like people do with their pets? Of course, then we would need our enforcers to be able to read the chips and verify that they belonged to the person riding them. ABB

    Assessing Wind & Renewable Energy for the Home

    It strikes me that current wind turbines (propeller on a stick) are heading in the wrong direction. Perhaps more mileage could be obtained using windpumps, the design for which was pioneered in the US in the 19th century. Windpumps ..though rather than raising water, they would be used to drive a small dynamo. And they probably resist storm force winds a bit better. ABB

    A LOAD OF RUBBISH

    A lot of the problem with recycling in the UK is the patchwork of policies implemented by local councils. Some provide separation bins (from 2 to 5), others will just collect paper for 'recycling', fortnightly. The differing policies make it much harder to achieve economies of scale that could be obtained by a more consistent national policy. ABB
  21. I wonder if I'd get extra points for listing my occupation as sperm donor? ABB

    Agreed, an expected delivery time would be nice, only I can imagine peeps would start arbitraging during dips in the spot price... ABB

    GOLD

    Nevertheless, it is mildly misleading to advertise a product as available, only to give delayed delivery once the customer has committed to an order... ABB
