Only three comments? Oh that's gross. Well, not really, if it were gross there'd be 144 comments. meh ... move along, quite obviously no story here.
Re: Only if...
Yep, it is. Just right click on a running video and see for yourself.
You're not holding it wrong, ...
... you're just a lousy photographer. Actually a lousy "PhonePicMaker" since those who use a phone in an attempt to make quality shots are in no way a photographer of any sort. But it seems to work for the unwashed masses.
AdBlock, BetterPrivacy, TrackMeNot, Ghostery and NoScript work just fine. Get over it, get a life and move up out of mommy's basement.
Now I Understand
If the external storage is connect to the computer by a cable thats say one meter long it's well ... external storage. If the cable and other pathways are say 10,000km then it's "cloud" storage. Glad I got that all cleared up.
So Trevor ....
... you saying you were underfucked, overworked, mistreated and poorly utilized. What's your point?
Re: Too true
Yeah, yeah. We're all overworked and underfucked ... get over it. If you don't like what your paid to do then get a different job. If you're going to take their money then keep your mouth shut.

But it does take time.
I downloaded and installed the first Windows 8 Consumer Preview. I installed it on a rather old computer that is this very minute running Windows 7 very successfully. That was, obviously, a few months ago.
Week before last I downloaded the latest Windows 8 Consumer Preview because I'd couldn't find the first installation disk I'd created and I wanted to try i8 again after a period to see what the changes amounted to. Well young Jedi, guess what? That same computer that is running Windows 7 as we speak, and ran Windows 8 a couple of months ago will not even install the latest Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
Seems there's a little thing called PAE, and the machine on which I tried the second download of the consumer preview doesn't have it and the installation fails for that reason. It does however, run Windows 7 beautifully. You see I have a system image I restore when I'm done playing.
BUT ... I found my first Windows 8 Consumer Preview complete with the original key and it did install on the old PC without PAE that runs 7 so well.
Funny thing how what we often know we know we don't really know huh?
Made in America ...
... tested in Japan.

Write your "bowel time" statement down (or print it) and read it on your 65th birthday. Times will change .... times for all things.

Re: Well Duh!
Oh really? You let others (human and machine) have that much control over your life? There are times I don't want the rest of the world in my space. Not to be confused with MySpace.
How to appreciate British TV in one easy lesson
Watch American TV. And yeah, I'm one of 'em.
"Even desktop-bound Microsoft groks and executes the cloud better than Apple."
You grok?? I'm impressed; Valentine Michael Smith would be too.
Business acumen ...
... is lost on the IT department as usual.
"Small gains in productivity in the office ..."
Name one, and be specific complete with cost versus benefit analysis that includes a summation by year of avoided costs and a payback period.
The problem you're going to have, one of them, is quite often new products are introduced before any calculated payback period completes. Small gains you see .... small gains.
I'm happily ...
... still using Office 2003 and it still does all i need it to do with great ease. But then I'm living a wonderful retirement and don't need all that flashy new bling shit.
Re: @AC: "Linux kernel Retro"
Maybe you need to try and install Ubuntu 12.04 and Linux Mint 13 on a non PAE cpu. Both will simply not install and not install and not install ........
Microsoft is losing ... oh look, there's a squirrel! Now what was the article's subject?
Root Cause Analysis
Oppressive, obsessive, obnoxious overachieving supervisors, managers and vice presidents who have reached the very top of their Peter Principle position. They can't let the person work by constantly probing and asking/demanding the work be done in the shortest amount of time with the least resources.
Sounds like SOP to me.
Set WU to "Never check ...
... for updates", make yourself some kind of note and recheck one a week or so to see if it's fixed. Or, since MS has trustworthy computing just check back next patch Tuesday. Meh ... a non problem. Hide the updates if they offend you. Revert to a state that was running right then hide the offending updates. Oh yeah, sorry ... got dozen or hundreds of boxes to administer? Oh well, keep on carping and whining; that always helps. Makes IT look like the good guys too.
Adding so much value that when the RIF comes IT personnel are some of the first out the door, right after clerks, interns and admin assistants.
My my, we should have all companies totally run from basements and LAN parties.
Just damn, ....
... here I was thinking channel surfing during commercials or taking a leak or getting another Leinenkugel was sufficient. Now I find I need some sort of nanny service to enable me to not watch what I don't want to watch. Just screw 'em all.
"Developers, just be sure ....
... you don't pick up the stinky end of the Windows 8 turd."
It's GM's money ...
... and they made the call. Screw the doubters.
A fool and his money ...
... is soon parted. If you don't want to be fleeced, stop acting like a sheep.
All the insulation in my house has a foil covered side as does the outer foam board that's just under the siding. I specified both over twenty years ago when our house was being constructed. Don't you Britishers have these?
Floods and Earthquakes?
Nawww .... Godzilla rising.
... incest. All over again. No wonder the brainpower of the various boards is degraded and diluted so badly.
Sounds like India ...
... under the British. Or even British actions during the creation of Israel.
Re: Sounds like America
Please post your legitimate proof of this. Court documents, reports by real, trained journalists and not bloggers and other items and sources whose veracity can be positively verified.
Yeah right, like you for instance?
What social sites ...
... force you to use your real name? Do you actually believe that's air you're breathing?
Grows on you?
So does a toenail fungus, ringworm and Scabies. Ok, Scabies grows IN you.
Why would any self respecting woman ...
... want to come off as Sheldon Cooper with ovaries and live in a basement? Yeah, yeah, I know. But IT does keep our toys working and like Doctors, who even cares if the fix comes from a woman or a man. Just do your thing, fix the toys and let me get out of this dungeon.
Capital punishment ...
... permanently deters the one being punished and that's good enough for me. As to those who disagree ... DILLIGAFF?
