Is it HCF or HFC?
You mention both:
First paragraph: HCF
Second paragraph: HFC and HCF
Poor Gareth is finally losing it...
HCF - it's been a long, *long* week! (HFC is a thing, but hydrofluorocarbon isn't relevant to the article!)
EDIT: There, both HFC typos fixed.
I lost it a long time ago, unfortunately. If you find it, do let me know!
Did you ever have it to lose?
He still has it RedFlames, he still has it.
He can't both 'still have it' and have 'lost it a long time ago'.
He's under the impression he has lost it, but we know he's still got it.
I think you'll find it at the bottom of the glass that took you over the one-too-many-for-lunchtime line G.
I have to confess, the glass on the desk next to me was previously a container for a generous whisky-and-ginger - but I'd like to point out that was after I'd written the day's articles!
You have to watch that ginger, powerful stuff.
The discovery just sets the bar for the next 10 update.
My favourite HCF was back in the days where a 'hard disc' was a stack of platters in a washing-machine sized unit. The platters were big and heavy with a good amount of angular momentum when spun up, and the read-write arms were similarly hefty. Repeatedly read from the innermost cylinder, then the outermost cylinder, back and forth, as fast as the arm will go. The whole unit starts to rock back and forth, then 'walk' across the room on its corners as gyroscopic precession adds tilt and rotation to that rocking motion.
They don't make 'em like that anymore.
It was trying to sneak up on him.
Lucky you wasn't hungry as well or it might have been KFC...
charging a fictionalised version of the early history of personal computer,
Perhaps should be charting?
Reminds me of the Stuxnet attack on Iran's uranium enrichment centrifuges.
Indeed it should - I'll go fix, ta!
