London cops cuff 20-year-old man for unblocking blocked websites

Mr Anonymous

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

Time shifting

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)

ISPs' pirate-choking blocking measures ARE effective – music body

Mr Anonymous

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.

American Idol host's keyboard firm smacks back against BlackBerry in patent spat

Nominet goes titsup after update to WHOIS tool

Mr Anonymous

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.

NatWest 'spam' email cockup got me slapped with late payment fee, says angry Reg reader

Mr Anonymous

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.

Bring Your Own Disks: The Synology DS214 network storage box

Mr Anonymous

"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.

Re: About the cost.

"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.

Windows NT: Remember Microsoft's almost perfect 20-year-old?

Mr Anonymous

Booting up

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.

MS gets you hooked on Server 2012 Datacenter, jacks up the price for R2

Mr Anonymous
Facepalm

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.
