Re: Improving by degrees
Yes -- you're absolutely right. I'll change it proper.
It doesn't appear so.
In order to make changes, you need to select the "Open in new window" option.
You are confused by IBM's naming scheme. LotusLive Notes is a service that uses Lotus Notes to access a server with Lotus Domino e-mail. It's a re-branding of the service, Lotus Notes Hosted Messaging.

Re: Tsk, it's "How is babBy formed?"
Yeah, my editor actually "corrected" the spelling there. I'll change that right back.
Re: Not required last time I checked
The patent is question is # 6,233,389 (http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=6,233,389.PN.&OS=PN)
It describes a system that "allows the user to store selected television broadcast programs while the user is simultaneously watching or reviewing another program."
Hey, at least they didn't choose Comic Sans.
Re: @ Austin Modine
Alas, my questions weren't answered by Facebook, as their only response was the cut-and-paste statement reported in the story. The obvious PB blockage work-around appeared to get their attention though. I'll be sure to update the piece with any additional details/developments.
Re: No Exchange
Thank you kindly, anon. You're right. I've added the upcoming Exchange Server 2003 killdate to the story.
True, but since Amazon is choosing which titles you can send in, it could simply steer away from PC games with troublesome DRM and verification systems.
Which is...by last count, all of them.
OK, you make a good point.
Besides, selectively opting out DRM-laden PC titles from the program could only encourage game publishers to add more hoops since don't like game trade-ins in the first place.
I'm not entirely convinced digital downloads befit the consumer in the end. I'm all for giving game makers their proper due, but as my library of downloaded games grows, I become increasingly concerned I won't be able to play these games purchased online in -- say -- five years time. But that particular problem goes much further than just the video game industry.
Figured I'd get heat for the headline. OK, I submit to you my inner turmoil: "...other languages" works, but then I thought it would be confused with "languages" in general, like English, French, etc.
I could add "other programming languages," but that's not exactly an attractive headline. (The column widths on the front page are tiny too.)
So I fudged it a little and wrote "codes." Am I ashamed about it? Not at all.
Well maybe... deep down. A little.
Re: So this GN40...
The N280 has a TDP of 2W, down from the N270's 2.5W.
Will update with the info.
Re: Copper Age ???
The Copper Age was basically a beta version of the Bronze Age.
(Forgive me for using a Wikipedia link, but): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper_Age
It's used to label more of a evolutionary period of cultural development where both stone and metal tools were used, rather than the revolutionary leap of the Bronze Age.
Fine then, griefing it is! At least you didn't call me a n00b.
Gigabytes and me
Thank you to the many, many, many people who pointed out the typo. I'm rejecting those comments, but will dedicate the tears falling into my beer glass this evening to each of you.
Don't tread on me!
If UK users were allowed to watch MacGyver, they'd learn to get around YouTube's region lock with a half book of matches and a bit of string. It's a slippery slope my friend.

Although I meant [sic] in the kindest way. A brotherly [sic]. A gentleman's [sic]. A [sic] between two people bonded by misused homophones.
Not a mistake
A company's fiscal year often doesn't match the actual calendar year so that its year-end accounting work won't occur during the holidays or times of high activity.
Nah, voice services aren't allowed due to federal regulations. It will likely be the same deal for any US airline that picks up in-flight Wi-Fi.
Enterprise hardware reporting combined with a soft spot for video games results in a whopping 100% chance of being male.
Perhaps Dan should lay off the Cat Fancy online during work hours?
What you get is just the box. No monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc included.
CherryPal CEO Max Seybold's justification is that most people already have those kinds of peripherals laying around. Obviously if you don't, that's something you need to factor into the price.
Psystar states they don't support the installation of Leopard outside their facility, so obviously getting an off-the-shelf copy to run isn't the easiest thing in the world. However, they need to get the OS somewhere — and I doubt Apple is supplying OEM versions here.
But seeing as you can't get a box running Leopard without the OS pre-installed in the first place (and I don't get paid by the word), I'll strike the off-the-shelf reference from the story.
What do you expect during NA hours, Canadianisms?
The velociraptors in Jurassic Park are inaccurately depicted as about the size of their close cousin, Deinonychus.
To be fair to Spielberg, the name velociraptor is way more menacing. Deinonychus sounds more like an intestinal disease.
That does not appear to be addressed in the white paper. I'll see if Vyatta has anything to say about it.
You should be able to download the white paper here: http://www.vyatta.com/documentation/whitepaperdl.php?q=VSCISCO
Can't we all just get along?
In an effort to promote international peace and understanding, El Reg will henceforth compromise by calling it a data centere.

@Paul — I'm not Neil Nelson. His quote. Good spot though! You win 5 Register points, redeemable as 1 (one) issuance of respect knucks from any Reg Hack you should see sidling down the street.
@Ben and Nick — Oh yes, I do recommend a peek at that story. If only for the shouting match between George and Neal in the comments.
Intel v. AMD stories always bring out the best in people.
Ah damn. No, that's not Dell — that's me.
Looks like I forgot an "I" on Warcraft III.
I would normally blame my editors, but frankly their eyes go glassy whenever I talk about video games, so it's entirely up to me on that front.
Bush doesn't claim to be an expert, but at least he's got an ear on all the internets.
I predict a massive exodus from Second Life's red light districts.
You can only convince someone your voice is deep and husky because you have a cold for so long...

For those who took offense to the "unwashed nerds" comment; I'd just like the record to show that I am a huge nerd myself. I'm a console and PC gamer, and an avid WoW player.
TLA: Five points for catching that.
