Re: Israel's naked selfishness is gross to behold
"The term anti-Semite is often used incorrectly to exclusively define a single people."
From what I've seen it's pretty much done by members of that single people for the purpose of attempting to discredit anyone who suggests that Israel is doing or ever has done anything wrong, so as to avoid actually having to address that issue itself.
Re: Mr Hawking, you should listen to “Palestinian academics”
" Care obligation for the weak in the society in the ancient world"
Unless you happen to want their land, in which case feel free to slaughter them all and say it was God's will.
So HP sauce...
...has nothing to do with whatever the Hewlett-Packard board of directors have been drunk on these past several years?
...is Swords and Sorcery in Space (at least 4,5, and 6) and as that works well.
But people who don't really know any thing about science fiction see the space part and the sword blade made out of light instead of steel and think it's science fiction.
Re: Now down to just two plugins
It comes in handy in conjunction with TiVo Desktop to see who the guests were on a particular night when you want to edit the file title of a Charlie Rose or Tavis Smiley episode.
Why a DVD?
Wouldn't a CD blank (or an old coaster) be cheaper?
If that's the full retail version's restrictions...
...imagine what the OEM is going to be like.
Re: @AC 00:38 (was: Does)
I've got an XP cd that's even holographier than yours!
It is, unfortunately, a counterfeit copy.
If the package was empy...
...how do they know if the DVDs were encrypted or not, or even if they ever existed in the first place?
Perhaps the vacuum is between the ears...
...of certain posters (or maybe they just omitted the sarcasm tag).
But just in case someone doesn't get it, there has to be a gas of some sort inside a hard drive to "fly" the heads above the platters instead of letting them actually touch, and it's the friction between the platters and the gas that drags that gas along with the platter surface that creates the "wind" that lifts the heads.
Re: Smoke and Mirrors to Hide the Naked Phantom Emperor is the Folly of Fools for Imbeciles
Were the Mayans right after all?
Did the world actually come to an end and we just didn't notice?
Because I've just read an amanfromMars 1 comment that I could (I think) understand, appended to a column of which I could make neither heads nor tails.
trapper5 did an excellent job, by the way, of summarizing my reaction to it.
Great video! Not!
Too small to read anything, and if there was any kind of vocal narration it got drowned out by the completely unneccessary music.
Also, no video of the actual router or the PC hooked up to it, or how it was hooked up.
Re: "If it was my server, I'd continue to use it as rename it to "Lazarus""
That's not a geek joke, it's a theological one.
Re: Mike Tyson...
"...there is no reason to think she knows any more about weight control than she does about how to become Tall, Redheaded, or Scottish."
I'm sure she knows exactly how.
Be born that way.
No mystery there.
Re: More importantly...
"If she's @KarenGillan2, where's #1!?"
BH because no "The Village" icon.
If I might make a correction or two...
...having grown up in the RF footprints of both.
"A commenter on the website of the local TV station in Greenville..."
The local TV station in Greenville is CBS affiliate WNCT.
WITN is the NBC affiliate licensed to nearby-ish Washington, NC.
And though it's not likely to be mistaken for New York City, or even Charlotte, it's been a while now since one could really consider Greenville "rural".
I haven't even heard the other community mentioned called "Little Washington" in a couple of decades.
And what do you suppose the chances of him surviving that trip and the trip back to the hospital are?
Re: Ya know
Greetings fellow radio pronouncer.
Didn't the NAB or the RTNDA or somebody like that have a logo almost identical to the Apple one?
Mine's the one with the old copy of FMQB in the pocket.
At least those glasses...
...are big enough to see through, and, important to those of us who are near-sighted, can gather in a lot more light.
Now I can't frames for decent size lenses anywhere.
Who knew ugly was going to make such a huge comeback.
Was it the network feed?
Or just the website?
Re: "a classified pigeon loft"
I demand clarification!
Was it the loft that was classified, or the pigeons?
Re: Imposter postal pigeons
"Imposter postal pigeons
Amusingly enough, the British did try to spike the German pigeon network with fake birds (carefully selected for their complete lack of homing ability) - although rather disappointingly the idea that their lofts may have been penetrated was discounted by the Germans on the basis that only a lunatic nation would bother attempting it..."
They could have gotten a great Peter Sellers movie out of that story.
Mine's the one with the screenplay in the pocket.
Re: NuMedia = Badly Designed Infrastructure
Huffington Post's New York location had a backup site.
Way far away in New Jersey.
Re: The data was public domain.
In the U.S., one's Social Security number is most certainly not "Public Domain".
Caviar Rainbow, anyone?(copyright and trademark, me, just now)
How is Seagate not screaming bloody murder over the Barracuda Networks name?
So two weeks...
...is the universal constant for these things?
...I misread it as "Google adds 25 million grey building 'footprints' to Mars."
Well, in the case of Newsweek magazine...
...you're actually right.
Re: If the servers are outside Minnesota ...
If it's Interstate Commerce, then Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 puts it under the jurisdiction of the Congress of the United States.
They get to legislate some dog's dinner and the Executive Branch gets stuck with having to try to carry it out.
Electrolube is the overall brand name
Apparently they started in the '50s with a switch contact lubricant and have developed other products for the electronics industries since, including various cleaners.
Almost chose pedant icon, went for boffin instead, but who's the guy with the long face, top hat, and sideburns? Is it a UK specific reference?
"Plus, get a motherboard from gigabyte and you have the option of, er, thinking different."
Not to mention learning, the hard way, what an HPA is.
(what I really need here is an enraged face smiley)
Re: What were Evans sources?
"...Kindall mismanaged the IBM PC affair wholly."
The way I see it, IBM mismanaged the "getting the best possible OS for their PC" affair.
Cobbling it together out of commodity hardware is one thing, but taking the attitude that they could take any old crap and sell it by slapping an IBM label on it because of the IBM reputation is a good way to devalue that reputation.
Flies in the ointment
Since SDV means you need the TA that works with your particular cableco's head end, there goes the "just one box" idea.
And having to screw around with your cableco to get cablecards means there goes "it just works".
Although if Apple could force an industry standard slot for a plug in TA, or better yet, an industry standard slot for a plug in "one module does everything the cable company needs done", that might be pretty close to "just works", and other aftermarket set tops like TiVo could incorporate it in future products as well.
Re: In Soviet Russia, boiled eggs are you!
Quite simple, really.
It happens in Soviet Socialist Republic of Russia.
KGB decides if it needs to be investigated or is just a tragic accident.
Having arranged said tragic accident, they know it doesn't need to be investigated.
As long as they disable Intellipark...
...2 or 4 of these could fit very nicely in say the next generation of TiVo after the S4 platform, perhaps even in some sort of RAID configuration.
"...they're just a bunch of vicious minded sods perpetrating gang warfare."
...so we're back to talking about corporations and politicians?
Re: Yeah, you don't mess with kids, or cats.
Except I seem to recall National Lampoon did it years earlier, but with a puppy.
Re: I can't help thinking.....
"I'm not sure that my opinions are suitable as a substitute for a legal framework and due process."
Of course not.
For that we rely on my opinions!
