Maybe a simpler solution,
If you have limited disk space, but are happy to spend on hardware, then the solutions is to have a box under the desk running a headless Linux configuration and then replace the keyboard, monitor and mouse with a laptop with windows running on it, and make sure that the laptop is good enough to run your games. If desk space is at too much of a premium move the laptop to somewhere else in the house with more space?
always go with as simple solution as possible, as if there is a problem with hardware you could loose both systems!
"I personally wouldn't want an IT Admin to have full device wipe capabilities over my own personal device."
This could be a useful feature, if you lost your phone (including a memory card) that may have embarrassing photos, or personal documents on it. You can then ask IT to wipe the device as a precaution. This can also be a function of an Exchange server with Andoid/iphones utilising activesync to connect to them via OWA.
Re: How to tell a fake one from a real one
Maybe they just need stop wasting money then and just go for a standard USB Micro B connector then!!
How to tell a fake one from a real one
There is a fool proof way of telling a fake apple product from a genuine one.
Fake - you get a shock after you have purchased it
Genuine - you get the shock before you purchase it - you want WHAT for a simple charger!!
And what happens if Santa is not in the same location on both systems!!!
Please think of the little children!!
Old Adidas Logo
Isnt this nearly similar to the old adidas logo - which had 3 ovals - ok they are not solid but look very similar and are part of the fashion section of the patent
In an emergency, the phone companies prioritise emergency calls over their networks, so while Joe Public gets naff all, emergency services, important MPs, etc will get a normal service so they can get on with saving the world :D
Aren't O2 the olympic mobile provider
What we need....
Is a government website setup to display who has a court injunction, why they have a court injunction and links to pages on the web where people have ingnored the injuntions. Else how am I to now if I should report a story on twitter or not ;)
Mine's the one with a list of names of celebrities in the pocket!!
Now time to land it on the moon :)
I will only start downloading if they torrent a Airfix MK IX Spitfire, 3D model, with the ability to scale up to a 1:1 model :)
This is the difference between Developers and the Infrastructure guys :P
So no Chefs.....
But who is going to train the new British Chefs...... Ahh... That will be the authentic Indian Cuisine Teachers!!!
I thought 3 piggy backed off another network for their Voice and their network was purely 3G for data ?
Probably not the best photo source to use in this article
ReiJane Huai. Photo Both Barrels Communications !!!
A closer look
A closer look at the picture and in all that exciting technological advances and there is a piece of wood holding the cable tray up on top of the nearest rack!!
I bet there is a dwarf turning a big wheel at the back of the room!!
Already out there
It's called Sky
So initiall people thought the world was flat, then they realised it was round. But science has just proved that it is just a blob flying around in space!!
I have not seen a keyboard looking like that since the BBC model B!!
Got to be good
You have to be good to sneak up on a car with a 360 degree camera and slash the tyres!!
Playmobile or it didn't happen!!
You might have to cover the relevant bits due to the age of the playmobile girls!!
Surely he would just match the numbers on the side of the road to the numbers on his speedo?
Apple OS = Microsoft OS
iOS 3 = XP
iOS 4 = Vista
We are all just waiting for iOS 5 :)
I have about 20,000 names, address and telephone numbers in a searchable format

http://gawker.com/5418423/grandmothers-and-ice-cream-should-not-get-so-close - very wrong!!
Pais, because this is what she will look like in 40yrs time
Just wait till the PRS gets involved!! They will be wanting the royalties !!
Will the MP show us the way
I take it from now on that Jo Swinson will not be wearing any make up or doing her hair before any PR photos or public outings, as this would just be the old fashioned way of "airbrushing".
Troll icon because this is what she looks like without makeup on!!
How much electricity is used to product the laser beam
I bet that the laser used on the light bulb uses more electricity than the bulb saves and therefore the whole process is a waste of time!
So we now need a replacement idea for SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) lamps - may be a thick blanket that you could put over your head!! But because it has medical properties you could now sell them for twice the price of a normal blanket - the same could be done with black out blinds!
Mines the one that does not let the sun shine through!!
IP Address would be useful, then we could block those mail servers directly!!!
So MS removes IE, keeping opera happy, but wait what will people use to download their browser of choice?
Yes they can use FTP, but wait that is bundle with windows as well, so then generic FTP software company pops up and whines, it will never end.
Maybe remove TCP/IP from windows to stop all the fuss!!
So when are we going to see monitor resolutions in 3d
1024x768x<distance from screen object appear> :D
Back to IE then
Just pass me any coat, I have to get out of here quickly before the fanboys turn up
There is a free download
Why don't they just download the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack?
Just in case there are any PICT employees reading the register instead of working on the problem here is the link to the free download:
Darn, maybe I should have rang them up as a contractor, and charged them millions, only to go over budget and taken as long as it take for the next version of office to come out!!
Mines the one with the software assurance license in my pocket

Cost of Life

Stop - cos he did!!
Too Many to count
I have removed this malware from too many machines in the last month or so, ranging from home PC of friends and family, to corporate machines, that have corporate AV installed on them.
I find that Malwarebytes Antimalware (malwarebytes.org) program removes the program with out any problems. You dont need to buy anything (unless you want continuous protection - but I run it once a week to keep an eye on things)
I hope that this will help others in the fight against the crap that is out there
a frickin' laser on a truck...
I want it on a shark ;)
Mines the one with a gold member sticking out of the pocket
I hope that the Insurance guy was up to date with his life insurance payments :D
Vaz and his daughter
As the 12a certificate has replaced the PG rating then it is up to him if he wants his under 12 daughter to see the film, if he thinks that it is to violent then that is his right as a parent and not as a MP to decide! Some parents will think that their child is adult enough to appreciate the film and still understand that crime is wrong and take their child to see the film, others wont, but both will get on with life.
Paris, cos she knows the difference between right and wrong
Percentage of Viewers
Perhaps that OFCOM actually use the percentage of total viewers who complain to decided if they are going to act.
4 viewers = 100% of the viewers for that show = OFCOM have to act.
So what are CRB checks needed for?
I have to fill in multiple CRB documents, so I have one for the Cricket Team I captain, one for a school that I visit, one for a different school that I visit. I hope the new system covers all jobs/positions, rather than having multiple certificates.
How are they going to vet people, self certification of course !!!
Do like the egyptians
And write the stuff on a wall and then put it in a big pyramid shaped bunker.
Their archives have lasted thousands of years and still readable!!
Mines the one with the hieroglyphs on the back.
Jamie, just because you rent a house does not mean no house insurance, it just means that you don't need buildings insurance. I hope that you have home contents insurance!! Else we might all pop round and try and nick your phone :)
We need the eeePC girl playing this
I think the El Reg need to combine the eeePC girl and the Wii Ski game and post it on YouTube for all to see.
Mines the dirty old one with the binoculars
A few suggestions
We have the camera and the laser sighting, but I think the following could be in the pipeline:-
Wireless, webcam (with Night vision), laser targeting, mobile (fire and move) missile launcher.
and maybe a redesign so it looks like this
I used to work at a Secondary School in Berkshire. We had technology specialist status, and we decided that it was always better to order directly rather than go with BECTA approved suppliers. As the BECTA suppliers always thought that schools are an easy target for making extra cash.
This included a MS schools agreement licensing, it always seemed better to go to the suppliers ourselves as it normally saved us between 10-30% in cost.
One of the biggest pains was the tesco "computers for schools", which always required you to get the computers/accessories from RM. This is a pain as the RM prices were comparable to buying a mac than a std HP machine, so we always ordered printers instead.
Where were the UPS Connected to
Why was the little red button not connected to the unfiltered side of the ups, so that the UPS would nicely shut down the servers. This would then allow the server to be turned on in the set sequence to get the system back up and running as quickly as possible.
But then again I have seen little red buttons more than electronically turn of the power, but actually cut through the power cable suppling the server room, but this was still on the unfiltered side of the ups.
