Re: SSL is a good thing
"I checked with my ISP - 70 dollars per year per domain IIRC, and significantly more expensive for wildcard ability for subdomains." startssl.com class 1 certs are free.
Re: Jolly good work.
You forgot the following copyright exemptions:
Non-commercial research and private study
Text and data mining for non commercial research
Criticism, review and reporting current events
Teaching in educational establishments
Helping visually impaired people
And of course that copyright is a civil offence, so I don't think it is illegal as breaking it is not a criminal offence. (I'm not a lawyer, if I was I'd be charging, but I believe this last line is correct. The exemptions are correct however, so please remeber when answering that phoney letter these scammers send out)

"I can remember is the procedure for making a tasty dinner out of a live rabbit."
I find it tastier when dead, preferably in a pot with veg and wine, oh, and more wine on the side.
Is it going to stop any of your data going to google?
You missed a bit.
"The trial is one of the first recommendations of the recently established independent care.data advisory group, chaired by Macmillan Cancer Support chief executive Ciaran Devane." who is one of NHS England’s non-executive directors.
Sounds very depenent to me.

Why can't I get all media from one streaming source
They won't out compete BitTorrent until you can legally stream all media content from one provider, having muptiple streaming accounts to access media is just not good enough when competing with free.
It doesn't need more money, it needs people/corps on all sides to accept realistic amounts.
Yes, lets look at the docs:

This is EIGHT PCs!
Either do it longhand or I sugegst building an image with all updates/apps reseal it. Take a small Linux FTP server containing the image and a CD with G4L and image the PCs. Leave the Linux box behind so when Windows turns in to its normal six monthly "bloated fcukup state", they can re-image them.
Or like below. Mint em.
Is this news?
Over priced expensive portable gear is more profitable than that with smaller margins?

"I can't think of many who will be sorry to see the back of ICANN"
Except they aren't talking about getting rid of ICANN, they're talking about stopping the oversight by the US DoC.

I expect better from the reg.
Monochrome monitors with Hercules drivers were the worst, didn't see it much on CGA or VGA monitors as the whites we not so bright.
"None of these have Kinetic drives mentioned in their component overviews"
However, they do mention open-e so they're standard ISCSI/CIFS storage boxes using SATA/SAS.

There were other standards for modems before V90
"Microsoft will start serving up nagging pop-ups, and migration advice, to irritated XP laggards from tomorrow – Saturday 8 March." Not if you blocked the windows update download it won't. Those running internal update servers will, no doubt, block its delivery.
Have they fixed the ODF import/export as they'll soon be needing it if UK Govt is to continue using thier software.
"Yes .... sadly it won't work. As I understand the situation, whilst you can buy and sell BTC on Mt. Gox, having bought the the BTC you can't get them off the exchange."
Aparently you can. https://bitcoinbuilder.com/ However I'm sure it's not without risk.
What ripoff? The Sony P910 had an external keyboard that pressed on to the touch screen underneath, that was in 2004. At that time did Blackberry have a touch phone & did it have an external keyboard?
Nominet has dismissed the accusations as nonsense. ®
Explicitly exclude revenue generated by domain owners protecting existing registrations by registering the .uk version of an existing name from the senior employee performance related pay scheme.
Stop discrimating against charities, non-profits and non-corporates by re-instating first come first served, rather than giving a preference to commercial owners of co.uk domain.
Otherwise, I call out the CEO *70,000 times.

What I suggest the unfortunate do
If he always pays his account, setup a Direct Debit with the credit card company to take the full amount.
Whitelist the email address of the sender of bill reminders.
Apply a score system to SPF rules, don't block outright, you will loose email.
If your anti-spam service can't provide an interface for you to do the above on your email account, move to one who does.

"I'm not entirely sure how long we've had this enclosure, but it was definitely well before June 2012"
I think the HP C3000 was introduced in early 2007.
"thanks to decent pricing" will be out the window, it's one thing VMware doesn't have.
"Home NAS has flourished after Microsoft decided to kneecap its very useful Home Server product, an option which gave new life to an old PC or laptop." Crap.
The NAS market was mature before MS failed with one of their embrace, extent & extinguish moves. The biggest failure being they couldn't get their storages services to work properly, a key feature for a storage device.
Upstreams should _always_ filter announcements.

What ads? Block just 5 hostnames and 97% of ads disappear.
Les time, less money, less code, same result.

"Even if a family already have a crappy PC just for Facebook, if that's their only PC they aren't likely to let little Jonny install Linux onto it and start messing around "doing programming" on it."
No, but he could install the Arduino IDE and learn programming on an even cheaper micro-controller that can do all the IO he would need to make his own part of the IOT.

I just dug out my old HP Vectra XW workstation dual 200Mhx Pentium Pro, plugged it in and pressed the switch, booted first time, not even a BOIS reset from a dead battery.
Wow, SCSI hard disks are noisy and the fans sound like a hover craft, but it's got Win2000 on it!!!
I can remember my old 14 char password, event log has the last entry at 13 Dec 2003 @ 13:01:03 Event Log Stopped.
The old NT box and disks are some where around so I might re-install.

Re: Software Assurance
"I would of thought very nearly all of the people who will want/need Datacenter R2 will be SA subscribers anyway so I can't see how this is going to make them all that much cash."
Well, I suggest you open your eyes then.
Having SA for 3 years means, on average 33% will be renewing each year. Also don't forget this is on top of the 20-34% rise we had to "harmonise" pricing across the EU last year.
The web edition of the 'OS' disappeared with the 2012 version release, after MS had hooked people on to the "cheap" hosting edition, the only upgrade path is to standard.
I guess that the web edition of SQL server will go the same way too once they decide they have hooked enough lemmings.
If the CPU in your fridge has to service AVG, will it have time to check if the temperature is correct or that the compressor is even running? Sounds like you're going to have lumpy yogurt one way or another.
"I turned the last NT box (running a mail server and FTP) off about two years ago - never hacked even once."
FTP on NT4, how we laughed (not) when users with bad passwords got hacked, the anons created directory names like com0 and filled them up with warez that you couldn't see or access with file manger.

"Sports people have a limited shelf life, they have to ensure they are comfortably off before they are 30-40 years old."
Then get another job if you're too old, just like everyone else.
"As for the stones, well there's not much money in music these days."
Then get another job like everyone else.
Useless whining here.
Do everyone a favor, firstname.lastname@example.org is the place to complain.
The last MS relevant case "Tying of Internet Explorer to Windows" is being repeated almost exactly with "Tying of Windows storage to SkyDrive" email them at say you want to complain about market dominance and restricting consumer choice.
