We're all out and have been all day
The majority of our 3,000 (yes, three thousand) handsets are failing to send, and are having really bad delays receiving incoming mail. They won't look up numbers off the BES either. I wonder if I can find an alternative use for mine?
Email has to go!
Only one solution for it - axe the email system and replace with Yammer - it's miles better.
Particularly like the document reviewing functionality they've integrated from Crocodoc.
So, calling the impartiality of Andrew "if it's green, it's wrong" Orlowski into question is v wrong, but homophobia on these fora is fine? What planet are you on?
I'm not childish and have been a reg supporter for many years, but I don't think that Andrew is doing it any favours with his childish rants...
Social enterprises and council housing
Another thing to add: the first projects to fold out of this cut are the installation of panels on social housing by housing associations and non-profit social enterprises. How does that fit with your "tax the poor" perspective?
WTF? Restricted access to his lawyer?
Yeah, that's perfectly normal in the UK judicial system - a bloke accused of a minor sexual assault gets put in solitary and his lawyer has difficulty seeing him...
Bending the UK judicial system to suit the USA is NOT acceptable.
Now VISA joins the sheep
Funny how google searches for "wikileaks site:visa.com" don't match any documents but "wikileaks visa" returns loads of news sites showing that VISA, MASTERCARD and PAYPAL have all withdrawn payment facilities.
Who's next? Western Union? MoneyGram?
Time to ask if we should be concerned about government control of financial duopolies like Visa/Mastercard...
PayPal give me my money back
24 hours to clarify what "transaction completed" means really and who has the funds I remitted to Wau Holland Foundation (long live CCC), or the small claims court is coming your way.
Terrorist target list my arse. I went and looked up my local "terrorist target", which admittedly is a site that could be at risk. However information about it is easily available already on http://www.hiberniaatlantic.com/ and wikipedia, including a more detailed grid reference than wikileaks gave (they redacted it down to the city name).
Get your facts straight
You're off by about £8m p.a. - they admitted straight away this would just save £600k, and your article was out of date before it was published.
WAB is an industry-led technical forum which is currently putting together re-use protocols to stop electronic waste being shipped to African beaches under the guise of charitable donations. That's a very important thing, and scrapping it without thinking is pretty dumb.
So cross-platform scripting is fine as long as you have implemented all of the interpreter and are an evangelist for the cross-platform scripting languages? At least be consistent, Steve!
Did you mean free as in beer or free as in speech?
I don't think you can download beer from PirateBay...
There's already a production system for this
In the UK, www.cyclestreets.net is already in place, and has an excellent cycle-oriented routing engine that gives options of the level of traffic you can manage and factors in the gradient profile of the route to optimise it & estimate timing. It's based on openstreetmap/opencyclemap data, which for cycling in the UK is of *far* better quality than Google's mapping.
And they're off again...
Just in from Rapidshare:

We're a registered UK political party and this is its official website. If these allegations were true we could not be standing for election.
I'm sorry that RapidSwitch are receiving threats such as this. We've already agreed to move to another host by the end of the day (ticket IOZ-KHFC-IDQV) because our opponents were resorting to DDoS attacks which RapidSwitch are unable to deal with these on our current hosting package.
You're five days early!
Music to my ears
After learning to program on a KIM-1, this was paradise. No more hex operands...
I spent a few good years programming these - they got quite good with the 2048 etc.
The highlight for me was getting software to run on the embedded 6502 controller in the external SCSI hard disk drive and banging the heads with varied delays to make music. Needless to say it wasn't my system...
