Irk The Purists
The point of Ted is to wind some people up and make others laugh. Seems to be doing a grand job .....
Was DM really smaller than Inch High Private Eye?
Back on topic.... what are EMI playing at?
Too late ... looks like others had already taken off
Two comments in and we're wildly off topic ... well done lads!
Thanks, but I collected my coat ages ago .....
Deleted my FB account last year - it added precisely no value to my life other than seeing how often my daughter (who is old enought to know better - I blame the parents) was doing things I didn't really want to know about.
@Tim H and Pony Bot
Tim ... we're happy with the Niagara stuff here but a decent legacy solution for Solaris 8 and 9 would be handy - the whole Brandz and container\zone thing is just a PITA. Got a load of V-series kit in store so it's not too bad for us.
AC\Pony Boy - WTF? We have a lot of HP-UX as well and the future looks a damn sight less clever for Itanium and PA-RISC. HP Seem to be betting on Linux so they can shift BL blades but, frankly, we can get x86 stuff from anyone we choose.
@AC re prior art-tards
But the Newton was hardly first either. Have a look at http://users.erols.com/rwservices/biblio.html ...
The points of the other posts are mostly around the stupidity of the US patent system .... who care's if this "new patent" is finger based .... it's not really new just because they've changed the pointing device.
Paris - because even she can think of an alternative pointing device
A good round up but .....
Oh Ess Ecks ?
Is it me?
I actually find the replacement cover far more offensive. Hairy german men .... one seemingly offering a good fisting.
Mine's the black leather one with studs
Read the article without noticing the link. Read the comments and went back and found the link .... cheers guys .... laughed like a drain.
I'm not sure there is anything sadder than only being able to get the Metro interested in your sad story about your sad lives.
It's a living language
We all (the collective hive mind) invented it .... T-shirts all round!
I use self-service because:
a) There is usually one free so I know I won't be queuing behind some arse that doesn't think to look for purse\wallet until asked for payment and then remembers they've got 37 different vouchers they want to use
b) you get a plastic bag to put things in without having to ask
c) I fancy the bird at my local Tesco who has the job of pressing the "he looks over 18" button whenever I run some Merlot through the system .... which is often
I know there are important issues at stake here but "ridership"? Did I have to be forced to see such a horrible word .... yours, cancelling subscription etc
@ Graham Lockley
Abso-bloody-lutely .... nail on head there, sir.
Based on my survey (sample of 1 = Mike Sullivan) I can now reveal that 100% of men have a wife with a statistics degree.
Which is about as useful\accurate as this reprint of marketing propoganda is.
<-- get's 66% of coat and leaves
Sadly that's how the real world works ..... they get it to work with IE and cookies on and 98% of "real" people don't notice it's fsck'd for the rest of us.
There really is a very limted group of people in the union set of shotgun owners (fuck the ban and all that) and linux freaks ..... and I'm one
Arse prints? No good for me .... gets photocopied and pinned to the message board every christmas ....
Surely with a box like this you'd only use local storage for OS and bung in some HBAs and grab all of the rest of your storage off of a NetApp\EMC\Whatever SAN
No change ....
This makes no real difference to me as a MySQL user\implementor ... I can download it and use it for free and where I've put it in a client site and need some support then I can pay for it.
They seem to have paid way over the odds but that ain't a first.
