Does it tell of the struggle to get zero adopted in the West?
That awful thing that is something representing nothing.
What have the Romans done for us?
Held us back for several hundred years, is what.
Considering the lineage of the Royals --- shouldn't you be quaffing Litres?
Re: Poor article
You have made one (1, uno) post and managed to totally miss what was being said in the article.
This is El Reg, we've done all the 'engine' stuff before, if you'd beeen around earlier you'd understand the 'boring' bit.
Please don't behave like the person who only goes the the pub once a year and only watches football once a year and doesn't settle in to the game before asking which City player is Rooney.

Same ones, just 'Re-cycled, re-cycled'
There is a way of sorting this out - but someting lately we have forgotten about:
Down here we (well, for a given quantity of 'we' are celebratnig the glorious 25th (How shall we rise up?) and up there they get a bloody bouncy castle!
Re: Ha ha ha haaaa
Thank you for your erudite and concise input, Nigel.
Another failure in the run up to the Leasership bun(g)fight.
Many Tory ministers and Ex-ministers have been seen prancing about before chucking hats in the ring.
IDS, Boris 'the unfeasbly useless' Johnson etc.
Not to be confused with the EU thang but it all seems to be wrapped up together for the main contenders.
All the Republicans are worried about is links to gay porn sites missing and missing links to 'male escorts'.
M$ update yesterday.
When do you need apps to look at porn?
(this does not include that fact that we no longer have 'programmes' but 'apps' instead)
Re: "plunder older Android devices through infected porn apps"
'Beleiver's make really easy marks.
They are programmed to accept and obey.
God, how I tried to get on the list for Y2K changeover but failed.
Everyone wanted a slice.
Re: Quite Simple Really
Ah, ALL Backdoors are nasty except ours.
And we need ours to ensure optimum performance and security is maintained -- here, have another U2 album.
Re: Pot calling the kettle black
His business model seems to be based around bankruptcy.
Create a company, get investors, move the dosh, go bankrupt --- repeat until 'National Hero' when you can do the same to an entire country.
Re: To be fair...
"you will loose the will to live,"
I just did!
Hmm. . .
For a while did internal IT support Helldesk for a very large phone company.
We mainly supported managers.
not just servers
Some time back, as part of a large PBX changeover, people were trying to identify private circuits and unmarked exchange lines on an ancient and messy frame.
Our 'manager' paid a vist with his boss in tow -- and moaned about the time being spent on identifying circuts over a multi-building site.
His boss actually suggested cutting cables to see who complained.
After his ears had stopped ringing from several of us grunts telling him he was a total fuckwit, we asked him which circuits in the hospital (UCH) were going to what critical equipment? and which might be crash lines.

Soooo, it's a dustcart.
special? I wish I was special . .
"we are the special ones"
I refuse to be another Jose.
Flies round . . . .
If you go to a site that spews out shite for you to take delight in other's plight . . .
As one who was in the middle of the last fiasco, please bear a thought for those internal BT HellDesk workers who pick up the phone and go 'Hello, am I allowed to talk to you today?'.
Re: Countdown 3...2...1
Oh, come off it!
We can clearly see that the image is a poorly 'shopped pic of a mouldy tangerine!
Thanks to the many posts on El Reg, I have deferred W10 until a reasonable release. Also thanks to those who point others towards GWX.
I've been watching the update stuff and so far haven't seen a W10 installer either as non-crtical or critical update.
I had the notification icon for months (now removed) and despite world+dog appearing to have the beast delivered I seem to have been forgotten.
I still don't trust the buggers and expect to have to spend a while digging around unticking boxes eventually in various 'security' and 'personalization' sections.
But what about the rest of it?
My phone may not be spreading cancer after all but I know it sends subliminal messages about multi-vaccinations and that measles is on the increase .
As an occasional cyclist I reckon that this is only a small step as, from my experience, vehicles with 'A.L.' on them are driven by complete wankers.
Printer hassles option E
right-click on printer, remove.
turn printer back on -- if no printing then how the fuck are we supposed to fix a hardware problem on a Friday?!
move them to another print queue as geographically as far way from thier desk as is possible - and tell them is it only a 'temporary fix to get you back and working'.
Re: SAID NO MANAGER EVER
We used to in our team - including the manager.
We all would revert to corporate teamspeak when we needed to -- just to take the piss
Re: "What have you had to get in writing?"
Yup, while at a large telecoms firm, I kept emails archived well away from Outlook.
I had a few run-ins with middle managent sending emails then saying or doing the opposite.
Heated discussions led to them going 'Oh, yeah?' but wilting when I said I kept and archived off-server anything I considered to be relevant.
eg 'can you help out with such and such a team who are overrun with work at the moment?'
Then I get up to Manchester and the level one manager says 'Ah, our secondment'.
Back in London I raised this and was shouted down with threats of 'disciplinary' until I unfolded a printout of his original email.
Re: The most important question to come from this article......
When they hang up their pipes
Re: Woe, woe and thrice woe!
A prime example is the Independant comments - every single one seems to be hijacked by EDL/BNP/UKIP ranters.
No attempts to even menton the actual subject apart from a lever to rant about Muslims, Migrants, Corbyn, etc.etc.
(and elsewhere here we are informed it is some sort of Trotskyist collectivethat is responsible)
Re: Woe, woe and thrice woe!
Oh, good greif!
One can only hope
Yahoo has seen many top-end changes and much moolah chucked at it but it still declines.
One can only hope that extra money increases this decline and drags the Maul with it.
BUT will buying a foriegn company cause mortgages to rise and homeless gay immigrants infect our bricks and mortar with AIDS?
HAS YOUR LOCAL COUNCIL MADE MIDDLE BRITAIN OBESE? -- Mail-o-matic
Re: Woe, woe and thrice woe!

A Danger too all that is right and Right
Should Trump get the prez job and be asked such a question, either he'd have the press guy taken out and shot --or just be attacked by surrounding petomaines for using witchcraft and summoning the ghosts of Feynman and the like.
Similar to our own Boris Trump - if it ain't binary, it's an abomination.
The clue is towards the end -- it is a belligerant and direct response to 'I'm so Lonely' jr.
Re: uh, in America, we do those stories on April 1st
Over here we don' need no frikkin' excuses!
Can I suggest one of the local pizza deliverers?
Always uses a car, always has the original (drappy) audio turned up to ultimate ditsortion to try and get some bass out of it.
You can almost track the entire journey of the car just by listening for the boot, bonnet and window rattles.
You may scoff . . .
. . . but I see it being used in schools.
Maybe the Reg readers forget that yer average public run with what they are forced/encouraged to use forom day one.
Teachers at a local school are fed up with me saying 'what the fuck are you using that shit for? "it's what comes up when I click on . . ."
(and they blame QT when they are trying to stream stuff off the creaky server and look embarassed when it falters - they still use MS Media Player too, and can't turn off it;s crappy visualisation)
"Under secular governments and constitutional freedom of religion, there is no such thing as a parody religion."
All religions take the piss.
Re: This is the kind of nonsense
There is no such thing as 'common sense', the phrase is merely a form of social blackmail to get others to tacitly agree with you.
It is usually neither 'common' nor 'sensible' --- if it was it wouldn't be so widley used by UKKKIP/BF/EDL etc.etc.
Re: Pastafarianism is under attack!
Standard business practice
No-one should complain, it's just basic capitalism at work -- screw your business rivals.
"Hackers hacking hackers to knacker white hat cracker trackers"
Do they have backers?
The big seller may well be the idea of running it off a pair of AA's.
Whether it'll be in the next gen Xmas lights we will find out -- next year, I guess.
"that is NOT the gender that they were born with."
Yup, that's just the outward/inward bits -- they are merely attached to the person, who may or may not feel as if the bits are where they should be.
"Once upon a time"
Was there 'time'?
I think we need to clear this up before moving on.
