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.
Re: Seeing As Microsoft Started Hating Java After Sun Legally Flushed J++ in 2001…
I'm pretty sure sandboxing was borked before Oracle got their hands on Java.

Useful and ubiquitous does not equal excellent
Re: Good article.
Maybe in Westpondia, but in civilised countries a work is assumed to be copyright unless proven otherwise
No, but there is a very attractive volcano on Mars he his eye on.
Re: meanwhile in the real world
Luxury! We used to get some crappy chicory mix which tasted like dry cleaning fluid. So people started bringing their own coffee in or going to Costa
Re: Never mind fast food
So the supplier could satisfy the requirements of the bill by just including a link to their website in the QR code? That's the impression I got
Nope, brought to you by the idiots who sold you the expensive AV that didn't detect Crytolocker

A USB stick you forgot on train is more secure than Dropbox.
Re: insulting reference to Amazon as Microsoft-like in this reference
You are splitting hairs. Ether way, Amazon are saying "That looks nice I'll have that, ta." just like MS did and still does. The exact way it's done is unimportant
My keyboard has a Scroll key, although it's probably a Scroll Lock. I suspect AC means the scroll wheel on your mouse
Do BAE, Boeing, Lockheed and Thales advertise on adwords?
Re: Who can argue with a 1.9 user score on metacritic?
I dunno, I checked the critic reviews from websites that actually specialise in strategy games and most mention the things that the user reviews complain about, the lack of info on your units, the pared down commanders, and the annoying grind to unlock bonuses (and the Russians playing too much like the Americans in CoH). I would hardly call that anti-Russian propaganda.
Re: Well browsers are not suitable for this
Something like an email client perhaps?
Re: Admission of failure
True, but you need to use OpenSSL until LibReSSL is available on your platform of choice, so it's good they appear to be doing something.
Just a pity about all the other people and companies whose funds get automatically frozen who can't utilise the outrage of Twitter and Reddit.
Re: >Everyone has his own little psychopathy.
I wouldn't exactly call Java a first class citizen on anything but Windows and Solaris. You mentioned your issues on OSX and Oracle won't let the Linux distros (except Oracle Linux, of course) redistribute the official Java binaries anymore, so they all provide the OpenJDK now. It probably works better anyway (and supports BSD) and most were providing it by default anyway, but it does smack of an attempt to force companies toward using Oracle Linux.
I think we need a yarwellnofine app
I think he was attempting sarcasm, if so it was an "epic fail" as I believe the kids say today.
I don't see how losing four and a half thousand soldiers and God knows haw many camp followers is anything less than a military disaster. Just because they burnt down the Grand Bazaar in retaliation doesn't make it any less of a disaster.
Re: Quick to fix in Open Source, but it leaves questions.
The paradigm espoused by Bill Gates et al for many years has been "Ship it first, fix it later", along with "Don't waste time rewriting bad sections, bang a patch on and continue"
Also known as "Worse is Better" and an important part of the Unix Philosophy. Gates didn't invent it, he just embraced it whole-heartedly.
@AC Re: stolen technology

Were you trying to give me a heart attack you bastards!
Probably still using phpBB2.
I think what he means is quite often the only recourse a small inventor has when faced with a large company infringing one of his patents is to licence or sell it to a third party with the funds and will to sue. Unfortunately at the moment, those are mainly patent trolls.
Those aren't bugs, that is PEBCAK
I thought the reason that you don't see passwords and wotnot in the urlbar any more is because all the web developers stupid enough to do that sort of thing had been dragged off and shot. It appears they've become UX designers instead.
SeaMonkey still has a search box, just customise the toolbar and add it in
Re: Vintage planes
Because we sold all our Harriers to the Septics because they understand their worth.
If anything, the Bink-based Opera is less configurable than Chrome.
Re: Ribbons, we don't need no stickin ribbons
<joke>Didn't you know? Modern displays are so small they have to reduce the amount of chrome any way they can.</joke>
That's not as chaotic as it appears at first glance. Seen worse driving in London. And while the pedestrians seem careless they don't expect to be given right of way, like British pedestrians.
You realise they will probably get some sort of tax break on all the money they are borrowing? As much as I hate to say it, it makes more sense to borrow the money than repatriate it.
Re: I have never played Minecraft
Dunno, if you like open world sandbox games, maybe? It's about as far from Halo as computer gaming gets. Although with mods you can play it as an FPS, or an RPG. Or you can just stay in Creative Mode and build stuff.
Re: Unfair criticism
That blog was about the Debian OpenSSL bug, but it's probably just as applicable to this one.
I know they know all about coding securely (I don't think that 's the right term), but hope they know as much about cryptography as well as they think they do. I hope all the best for this project.
Virgin Commited to IPV6?
So that's why I'm still using an ancient Motorola Surfboard then.
Re: An optimist's view for your consideration
Nope, not hardware problems, badly written drivers. At least until ATI and NVidea learnt how to write drivers for XP.
