How to stop this shit...
Ive just phoned em up on the freephone number, given them my mobile number, a false name, false address and had my details removed! So, suggest people do the same and fill the database with false names, addresses and other details...
But why is this shit opt-out!!!!!
Joke, cos it is really innit.....
Removes all worries about being tracked!!
What, my company vehicle dissapeared off your snoop-scope for a few hours??
Must have been a technnology failure. These things will happen.
Amen fella, as an ex smoker with a smoking partner we have a similar agreement, if she smokes i leave the room, my choice, simple...
Common sense prevails..On here at least.
When are they going to stop releasing different versions of their OS.
I mean, really, ffs, vista ba(sic) is less able than 2k or xp home.
Premium and ultimate do not warrant the price increase.
Sadly, i HAVE to use vista else my hd tv just doesnt work properly on my hd laptop if i use (much preferred) XP.
I was lucky??, i got a vista ultimate key from technet as an old company subscribed but i am not paying 300 quid for the top end W7 flavour.
I am an MS man, makes my life easier but i'll be arse fucked with an open ended tube of wasps
before i pay MS top whack for W7. I want a huge discount (they can disable and blacklist my vista keys) for the W7 release.
exactley and to whom do I send em my "donation"...
Doesn't seem that long ago when we should have been looking at Oz's immigration, settlement etc system as they seem to have a pretty clued up group running the whole shebang down there..
But WTF is going on here......
Government invading more of our lives...
Carbon dioxide my arse
My PC's, plus several other juice sapping devices are left on 24hours a day.
My PC is powered by baby foxes and young trees, has no off button and has one speed of operation; Max, all the time
But hey, i do pay for this and im on a token leccy meter so when i say i pay, i DO really pay.
As for global warming, wanna know why the planets getting hotter?
See the huge nuclear inferno in the sky....Duuurrhhhh....
Paris, i'd like her to sap my juice.
domain name registration????
surely if amazee or whatever have registered the domain name then surely there is bugger all amazon can do.
And thats how it should be!!!!!!
Dont see comparethemarket.com getting its knickers pissy about comparethemeercat.com
Intended humour or not...
Paris, I'd register her domain.
Yeah, the old singing amiga disk drive.
Originally i seem to remember that was written as a virus/rouge to wreck a disk drive.
freezing cures loads of (fujitsu) ills
The old MPGxx series of fujitsu hard drives with the duff semiconductor ionised resin could also be brought back to life, albeit temporarily, by a good overnight freezing. Also the early security coded car radios could be done this way too...
Proximity charging, how about ALL major manufactures using a single designed charger so that one pregnant plug will charge **every** device I own...Same applies for memory cards..
Proximity charging is cool but woefully inefficient..
3 digit security code...
@Slightly off topic..
By Anonymous Coward
Which is why i remove the 3 digit code off the back of my card...
At least they dont get to see it and seeing as they HAVE to ask me for it, i know exactley whom has the capacity to twiddle with my balance...
Ubuntu?? U cares
Oh for fucks sake. Will you linux lovers kindly shut the fuck up and stop bestowing the values of an OS most people couldn't really give a flying fuck about.
I turn on my windows box, it does my email, it and the AV software update them selves, i turn it off. Ad infinitum
@ Anonymous Coward
They do speak a lot of funny nonsense though.
Yeah, at least they have something to say thats worth listening to..
And yes, i am stoned right now.
Blonde user syndrome.
Many years ago, back in the halcyon days of windows 95/98 we had a customer phone up explaining that her computer would turn on and then suddenly stop, we dug further to discover the machine was hanging at POST.
Asking her what the last thing she did was, nothing she replied, just turned it on but then proceeded to ramble on about how she would need a plumber to fix this...
A Plumber? i asked (by now i'd activated the speaker phone so the other chaps could hear this)..
yes she said a plumber.. We were now of course all thinking she had had a leak or a flood and obviously some thing was water damaged, like the keyboard or something..
Can i just ask why you think you need a plumber to fix your PC i enquired??
Well, she said, the last thing right at the bottom of the screen is L2 Cache, 32 pipeline burst...
I shit you not....
Paris because she knows about dripping pipes...
Oh FFS, For the average user, IE is fine.
God, what is all the fuss about.
Im an ex IT proffesional and am sick of having to repair PC's where fuck-wit users have heard something bad about IE7/8 and then, without the slightest comprehension of what or WHY they are installing another browser, phone my support desk up to tell me that, and i quote, " some one told me internet explorer was bad so now i have installed foxfire or oprah and i cant get the interweb." Cue the old addage of "if it isnt broken WHY did you fix it."
Im sorry but no browser or standards will stop cretins pushing the wrong button or listening to GIBA (Good Intention Bad Advice). The point is this, your avergae joe doesnt care, so long as he can surf porn he'll be happy. IE allows them to do that and allows me to quickly fix the machine.
Long Live IE.
KOH.ZIP. Problem Solved
Up until recently i was with sky max for 18 months, at the time of sale was told it was a totally unlimited package, so i took FULL advantge of that fact.
I downloaded hundreds of terrabytes of data in that 18 months and not once did sky complain...
I've no idea about scientology......
So off i went to the home page to learn more, watched a bit of video and decided that i'd rather watch the documentary on decidous trees...
Fungus the bogeyman....
Lives / lived in sheffield, had something to do with the university and was the first ever credit card customer of the maplin electronics shop back in about 1991 as i remember.
Needless to say i asked for identity and there it was on his old style driving license...
Just stop buying their overpriced non standard tat...
Sony strikes again.
Another reason i'm glad i made the choice to stop buying Sony.
If they aren't trying to install rootkits, they are making exploding batteries and laptops. Their quality control has gone to pot...

"Not without poppers we cant"
more duff hd's
reminds me of the old fujitsu mpg30 series hard drives so loved by Tiny computers where the resin on the main drive controller chip failed rendering the drive and data useless
