What happens when the population starts tracking down the oldest, skinniest people they can find and imprisons them as stool-factories for the obviously good crap they have?
Re: Secret mode?
Seems fairly small
Is RBS as a whole going to get a bigger fine?
Re: Of course it might be easier if...
Keep them on a separate VLAN behind a firewall that's got some draconian rules for a start.
Original Moto G?
Is it getting it? 4.4.4 is so last month tbh...
It's not like it was a secret but fair enough for saying it. Shows a bit of balls to come out and say it and risk sales in the nuttier sections of world society.
Re: Does it follow
They need to put more questions in around propensity for a 'menage a une'. Is three a day enough?
Why land on the comet?
Can't they just blow up Mercury so that the comet misses?
I'm literally sat on the edge of the bog.
Forget the bollox. Only a large-scale double-blind test will prove this one way or the other.
Science > waffle
Which POS platform?
Assuming Windows if they're exploiting RDP but may be wrong.
Re: I am not sure that I am with the ISP in this case
A modern blade running VMs for better utilisation will draw 350W or so.
Large companies will pay about 8p per kW/h.
So they moved away from Kontiki to their own platform?
Just what I thought.
It's likely t be tidally locked.
Susceptible to flares too?
So Solid Crew
We do have 21 seconds to go!
Re: Reptiles anyone? Or Birds
Some mammals also have only the one pipe. Monotremes, named because of this quirk.
Does the 21 second rule hold true for Monotremata or just for Marsupials and Placental mammals?
District Judge only
This will be appealed up to the Supreme Court whose job it is to determine how this sits with the 4th and 5th Amendments.
Cores or vCores?
They will be contested surely.
It can't do.
a.) P2P is still a huge portion of the total internet traffic.
b.) Tor users are still a tiny fraction of the total internet users.
c.) P2P is very slow over Tor.
Add it all together and 90% of P2P being through Tor doesn't stack up as a feasible claim.
Same in reptiles which allows for females to create males without sex via parthenogenesis.
Re: 3 Million Points
The trick was to get the maximum points before the kill screen.
(not that I did.)
Data Warehouse customers
Aren't they supposed to be using PDW rather than SQL Server?
If I remember rightly he was A head of IT not THE head of IT at HBOS.
That was his point. He was playing the consumer champion via a technical limitation that is easily rectified. It is just posturing.
Dropbox and others use SHA for the of same purpose and manage fine. The files aren't deleted if they match a banned hash but simply can't be shared. See the Dropbox article the other day.
As to your example, that's the flaw in the Megavideo model which means that content owners would never consider it as a distribution platform. Kimble is playing it as a personal storage platform but monetising it as a distribution platform. If it really was a personal storage platform then they could have taken the measures that Dropbox et al do. But they didn't want to because they would have lost users. Not all users wanted to stream copyrighted content admittedly but many did. Steps are available to reduce copyright violations as others already do but Mega chose not to take them.
Down vote away. Those are simply the facts about that part of the case. I'm saying nothing about the rest of it.
If Kimble was so worried that using MD5 hashes to identify illegal files would have falsely alerted to legal files then why didn't he just change to use a better hash like SHA? It's not rocket science.
Reminds me of when I had a gas bill from BG many years ago that was ridiculous. I persuaded endless bods on the phone that I didn't owe it but still the demand letters and bailiff threats came.
I'm sure they're much better now though.
Isn't 4.0.4. ICS rather than Jelly Bean?
Re: Luxury item
Organic claims to be both healthier and better for the environment without proving either. Some light reading. Plenty more out there:
I suspect, although noone has absolute proof, that it all rather depends on the individual application of organic or non-organic farming.
Flavour's a different matter. Personal choice init.
It may have the disadvantage of being proprietary but the Lightning connector is so much better than micro USB. Hopefully this has copied all the good bits.
Re: Weird combination at best
Most companies don't write all their own software so even if they like the MS stack they may buy a product which requires Oracle. Happens all the time.
iPhone 4 still isn't entry-level at £200. You can get a vastly superior Moto G for £100. Also the ship may have sailed on iOS if the vast majority of phones already ship with the Google walled-garden.
(Not an anti-Apple rant. I have a 5S as well as a Moto G and enjoy both.)
I shouldn't need to know
...but I need to know.
Was it a boy or girl doggie? Was he the active partner? Had the dog been trained with treats? Did he use protection?
I shouldn't need to know. But I do.
Terminator Seeds scary stuff or just a myth?
Re: Non-GM blight resistant spuds already available
Well we'll see which methods work best in the coming years. What's the harm in other options?
Re: Thin clients?
I suppose you also get the laptop format and can pay consumer prices for cheap laptops.
Presumably the reason to choose Chrome workstations over Wyse terminals would be the promise that over time you'd hope some apps would be ported to web apps or SaaS therefore meaning you wouldn't have as much need for virtualised app servers? Otherwise there wouldn't be a lot of difference.
What type of star is it?
Presumably some kind of red dwarf judging by the age?
I can't see it going down too well with most IT Security teams. Assuming the Windows bit goes on your corporate network, the Android bit probably won't be allowed and will be relegated to the public network. Yet they are connected and share files? I can see Security minds boggling right now.
How can I post that the resolution is too low unless you tell me it?
Re: No psychics either
That's kinda the point. You can see how well they did at predicting last year.
(The answer is BADLY if you can't be arsed to look.)
Re: No psychics either
Here's what psychics predicted for 2013:
No psychics either
Unless they are keeping their real predictions off the interwebz cos of spooky reasons...
Is there a version with vPro?
Re: Has potential ...
Peppermint 4 vote. Can't see any reason it wouldn't work.
Mandatory comment on the resolution
It's too low sorry.
Just a note of caution
I know I'll get down voted for this because no one ever reads comments on this subjects and just votes against the DoJ and RIAA... buuuuut, I think some of you really dont understand how Mega operated. It was designed to make money from the distribution of copyrighted material. That's the only way most people would pay for the service. Megavideo could not have made people pay unless there was something they wanted behind the link sites it enabled. And yes, I do understand that YouTube has done ok from a similar thing.
Make all the points about this case you want EXCEPT trying to claim that copyright infringement was just an incidental misuse of the service. Honestly. My 5 year old tells better fibs :)
+1 for Giffgaff
Been using mine for endless conference calls on 0800 and 0808 for years. Hasn't cost me a penny.
Re: Big Trak
Undoubtably. Also, didn't everyone try to find the trailer as displayed on the cover? Everyone in my school thought it existed and one or two (lying shits) claimed to have found it.
Much like the raft to the island on Jet Set Willy.
Seriously, did you actually try it?
Never mind the SSB gimmicks. It's a quite attractive, extremely quick Linux distribution that is very well suited to netbooks. Much better than standard Ubuntu. Nothing worth commenting on in that?
There's even special combination download packs like the office productivity one.
