Did Reddit spill over or something? the discussion on El Reg is hardly elevated, but this is at a new low.

systemd Borged udev
don't forget how systemd has borged udev for some reason. Although their supporters keep on insisting that it's purely a coincidence that udev is now maintained and part of the systemd project and now only available with systemd (unless you use one of the udev forks).
Re: Google just violated this law this morning
>I do have a backup.
So you lost 30 days of data then, Why didn't you say so instead of making yourself look like a total plank,
>No, Juncker is the head of the European Commission
That's slightly misleading. The EC is effectively the executive branch of the EU these days. And it is my understanding that as he as PM of Luxembourg he actively lobbied for companies like Amazon and Google to "base" themselves there, touting the tax advantages.
Maybe you could have looked at one of the various Open Source VOIP and video conferencing solutions?
Re: Am I the last one...
I quite like all singing, all dancing browsers with the kitchen sink built in, but that's why I use SeaMonkey and used to use Opera when it wasn't crap. I used to use Firefox when I preferred something more slimline and would be cheesed with the current FireFox if that was still what I wanted from a browser.
Re: Well, I've had it with Firefox
Perhaps because the UI of Seamonkey has not aged particularly well, and was never brilliant to begin with? But at least it is usable and they don't tinker with it every 5 minutes.
Re: @ John Hughs What is systemd
>So you're upset because of the location of the source code directory.
Well I wouldn't call it upset, rather baffled and slightly concerned, yes. Why is udev now part of the systemd project if the intention is for it to remain standalone?
@ John Hughs Re: What is systemd
> Please cite one "essential part of the system" that systemd has "steamrollered into their monster".
Well udev was borged into systemd a while back and is no longer maintained separately (unless you count forks like eudev).
@ Eddy Ito Re: What is systemd
>It seems to me that another solution is to derive/fork systemd and break down the dependency into smaller
>pieces that can be worked around more easily.
That's already happening with uselessd, which is basically systemd stripped down to an init system and eudev which is udev unborged from systemd (did anyone mention how it had gotten borged).
Re: Empty space? See the empty desk
Or "I Moved Your Cheese" (the Darrel Bristow-Bovey book, not the many others by the same name)
A better self help book than "Who Moved My Cheese" (not difficult) and actually rather funny, unlike the second AC's suggestion.
You mean for Assad's Swiss bank account, Shirley?
Any chance of stocking the classic BOFH O'Really T-shirts (or mugs), like "Distributing Clue To Users" "LART Pocket Reference" and "Windows Infernal File Systems"?

I don't use Palemoon but I imagine SSL 3 is disabled by default.
Re: Über Niemand in der Welt
From what I can tell they are a large taxi company that sidesteps present regulation by using unvetted, untrained private citizens using their own cars as drivers, and instead of using taximeters, uses a smart phone app. They claim not to be a taxi company, but by all objective standards they are.
EDIT I realise is not exactly difficult to become a taxi driver in most places, but usually there is some sort of cursory screening. Certainly a CRB check these days in the UK.
Yes, because everyone claiming incapacity benefits is really teaching karate, water-skiing in Australia and golfing semi-professionally. [/sarcasm]
Well it was such a massive and monumentally stupid and unnecessary cock-up that a little double jeopardy is getting a way lightly.
Re: Fact or fiction?
I imagine that the techies tried explain to him that XP and win2003 servers were unsupported, unsecure and unstable and he was all "don't care, fix it!". Then one on them noticed his iPhone, streched the truth slightly and said that if they upgrade, they will be able to use a version of Office that can sync to the iPhone, and he was all "Do it now!"
Re: so much for...
That's a pupular misconception, but there was never a total rewrite. Vista and later were developed from the stripped down version of Win2003 that gave birth to the minwin concept.
Yeah, that's pretty much how I play Elite (or Oolite) and why I wanted offline.
Re: Solo play not good enough
They are already selling paint schemes, and on a ship by ship basis too.
>Do you really want a version where trading and combat is all you can do?
Sounds good to me
I'm aware of the online single player, but that is not what I wanted, and is not what I was promised. If they hadn't left this announcement until a month before release, I probably wouldn't be so cheesed either.
I can fire up DosBox and play Frontier if want to, but I doubt I'll still be able to play E:D in 10 years time.
Re: Wombling_Free shows himself to be totally illiterate...
It's true it didn't directly state "no offline mode", but Frontier Developments have since clarified that that was what they meant, and no, single player online is not the same as playing offline.
I'll leave it up to the experts to fully address your remark about 4Gib Ram, but IMO any program that needs to load all it's data into memory either has some extremely specific requirements and limitations that most modern PC games are unlikely to meet, or is just badly designed.
Thanks for posting this, I don't pay much attention to the forums or newsletters. I'm seriously pissed at them now. I only backed on the promise of offline play, online multiplayer does not interest me, it was a nice bonus in my opinion. But if that was my primary interest I'd have backed Star Citizen.
I have just filed a ticket for a refund
Guess I'll have to continue playing Oolite (and Pioneer) for my Elite fix.
Apple are probably stalling to let their chums at the TLA's rewrite their "security" tools.
It's just one of those crappy bargain basement Android tablets with Windows slapped on it. It really won't be any good to man or beast.
Re: They're not alone
So is Win8.1 replacing Android on all those crappy underpowered tablets you see around (and in my case inevitably have to tell a relative, "no I can't "fix it", it's a piece of crap, stop buying them!") because Microsoft are so desperate to shift units it's cheaper to pay for Windows than pay the Microsoft tax on Android (I think this was originally a question).
I realy doubt that would stop them. They are even more aggressively ignorant than the Tories
Re: Has WiRED
Dunno, IMO they've always been like this, getting overexcited about nothing much.
Re: What other ebook reader? Will it read your already purchased e-book?
As an ereader Calibre is pretty shite IMO (but it's more of an ebook management program), but there is a plugin for it called DeDRM that allows you to strip the DRM from just about anything.
Re: Go for it
So far the only good idea of Poetterings that I'm aware of is /etc/os-release . As someone said on another forum, he should stick to hacking text files.
Re: Just to be absolutely, totally clear here.....
Noo, she died in the street because Fayed's driver was as pissed as a newt.
Re: "Key features disabled"?
Hmm, I think you have your terminology confused. Fandroids are fanatical Android lovers (they are often freetards - fanatical Linux lovers as well), whereas fanatical Apple lovers are iTards.
But whatever their fetish, the rantings are equally rabid and equally amusing.
Re: yahoo + aol
Sorry to burst your bubble, but there's a new generation of them on Reddit
Don't forget embedded 3D models in your PDF's!
So you came across a war porn story so bad that not even Baen Books would publish it. That is quite an accomplishment. Those are the guys who inflicted John Ringo on Sci-Fi, after all.
Re: I'm STILL playing this!!
Actually they DID remove the pools from the latrest version of The Sims, but that's just so they can charge for them in an Expansion Pack.
Re: If you are after a modern day version.
IMO, at present you're better off with KeeperFX
Ooh didn't know KeeperFX had updated, thanks
Re: SLOUGH - if despond - easily the worst place in Buckinghamshire ... or anywhere?
They were trying to look like a legitimate business, not a tax evasion scheme. But now the everyone knows about that, they might as well join the rest of the chattering class at Shoreditch
I'm sure the Gnomes of Zurich are trembling in their bank vaults.
