unified patching solution
Somebody tell Secunia wizards about distributions. Debian, FreeBSD & al: take your pick. The solution has been there for a while.
Thanks for your advice, but I'll leave that writing business to others. "Nothing but the whirl of words could grasp my condition,"
Is this a genuine Lewis Page article?
The "should have bought American" stuff all seems to be in order, but there is no mention of Eurofighter.
Who produced the animation? Is it based on real data or only illustrative?
So that's what our taxes are spent on?!
So the borders agency is keeping ladies with minimal clothing out of the country instead of searching for terrorists. Waste of money!

"But the aggressor nation still has missiles left, and it is clear that in the event of any retaliatory strike, Washington or Paris will share the fate of London. France declines to act. In America the debate is longer and harder fought, but in the end the result is the same."
Lewis, what planet were you on when you wrote that? Can you really envisage the American public letting its government leave alone a country that has demonstrated a willingness to use nuclear weapons against the West instead of unleashing over-whelming devastation to neutralise the threat and deter anyone else from trying something similar?
The article is good as an article, but I'm not really sure who it is aimed at. People who want a simple point-click, know-nothing-beneath-the-bonnet interface get exactly that from the netbook manufacturers.
People who want a more Linux-y experience will probably install Ubuntu or one of the other full-featured "proper" Linux distributions. Who would actually want to tinker about in the command line of the netbook's restricted distribution? And why? OK, I know that some people will, but are they likely to need an article like this?
Give him a knighthood. This valiant data warrior was clearly attempting to add to the formidable armoury of those fine folk at NO2ID.
... the database state
Glad I left VM
I was fairly happy with NTL (cable and adsl). Things went downhill rapidly after Virgin took over (adsl). I am now _extremely_ happy with Zen (adsl).
Maybe there is a good reason for staying with Virgin as an ISP, but I have no idea what it might be.

Superb use of strikeout there, Ms Bee!
My bad, I apologize:
RFB should have been BFB - Bulgarian Funbag, the sole universally accepted standard among elReg readers worldwide.
There seems to be something missing from those piccies of the Eee.
Old skool rules?
AMFM repeating the old Public Enemy adage: "Don't believe the hype!" Googol != Promis 2.0?
Mine is the black trenchcoat with matching hat.
An article full of wheeze-bang...
Marketing wheeze, priceless!
This was all avoidable
If they had only heeded the missives from the brother of the recently deceased oil minister in Nigeria.
