RE: Re: Loath and Loathe

I've uhh, actually heard people (yes, people, not person) mix up clutch and crotch. While they were driving.

Thankfully it was in a verbal fashion.

Oz carrier Primus blitzed by DDoS attack

Primus a carrier?

No. ISP? Yes.

Telstra are the only real "carrier" in Australia, probably much like BT in Britain.

Optus are their only real competition (AKA Singtel) in that market.

Everyone basically resells Telstra for adsl, some companies like Optus and iiNet have their own equipment at the exchange for adsl2+ but they still use the Telstra copper network for the last mile.

Windows Vista update 'kills' USB devices

@Kenneth

winxp x64 gets past the 4gb limit. It's also pretty kickass. I've heard of a lot of people whinging and moaning about lack of driver support etc. but I've never run into a device I can't find a driver for.

It's also pretty stable. Not as stable as the slackware boxes i have running fileshares through samba and (for when i'm out and about) webservers, though, but stable enough for a desktop environment.

Of course, this is because I don't use "bloody stupid" practices such as running .exe email attachments, allowing activeX all over the shop, etc. which is half the problem really.

Paris because she's already been "all over the shop"

Think I'll wait...

...for the 1gb version. It'll probably be a bit cheaper by then as well.
