I can see FF and IEs private browsing modes taking a leap in usage after this. One wonders how long that stuff had been in the guys cache.
Given the subject of the article, one might have thought that the contributors to this forum might have been a little bit more careful as to their spelling etc. Sadly this is not the case.
As for NCLB, fundamental error in the law is assuming that every child has the same potential as far as education goes. Someone really needs their arse kicked over that one. It should have been call NPCMNE, No Parental Commitment Means No Education. Schools and teachers can only do so much, without the support and, lets face it, discipline given and applied by a functional family unit the kid hasn't got a bloody chance. I've seen a few struggle out of the mire but on the whole their ambitions and aspirations are screwed before they even start. The only thing they have going for them is the chance that sometime later after their teenage years they will realize that they need some qualification or other and will return to education when their motivation will take them through.
@ AC "

I'm not usually a spelling/grammar pedant but come on.
the clue is in the word billion
Anyone sending billions of emails is not sending solicited material, they had the audacity to use the billion word in relation to the number of emails allegedly caught by Spamhaus to estimate their compensation, and yet no one seems to have said "Wait a moment that number of emails can't be solicited!".
Paris cos she only eats real meat not spam. Allegedly.

It really aint that difficult.
There's a Linux penguin, a fanboi, and a Windows luser in a plane, and the pilot says, we're carrying too much weight, one of you has got to go, and the fanboi says, well, I can't jump because... The fanboi is suddenly obscured by a large rotating beach-ball, the penguin and luser seize their opportunity and hurl the pratt earthward.
Did you expect it to be priced down?

Used it a couple of times
That was when it was free, $9.95 a month they can shove it, I'd rather join Netflix, at least they have no adverts.
Nice little backup utility, can be run from the command line to create scheduled disk mirrors.
Article read, in full just didn't notice the 3rd HDMI port. I will immediately drag my sorry ass outside and commit seppuku. Now where is that wazikashi?
3 HDMI ports?
I could only see 2 with a service USB port.

But then we are talking about the Jobsian states of Ameerica.

I was contacted by my bank, a small rural bank in the US, when one of the tellers noticed a Debit card payment actioned in Florida (about 2000 miles away) to a racecourse bookies. This teller happened to know us and also that neither of us were in Florida or frequented bookies. Bank put an immediate investigation into the debit, money that had already been disbursed from my account was returned by the bank pending the result of the investigation. The investigation resulted in new debit cards for my wife and I, no cost to us, and an explanation that the debit card had been compromised by a security issue at one of our local supermarkets. All done with no intervention on our part.
Have they made pot legal
If not they are definitely smoking something illegal over at the Times.

Bloody excellent. Installed faultlessly on a lenovo laptop that 9.10 had baulked at due to video issues. Having said that still massive Samba frig ups.

Especially her for initiating it all!
Paris for fairly obvious reasons.
seriously who cares.
Soon to be one of those endangered species I think, certainly if I was an author deriving any wodges from ebooks I would be considering my options and my publishers cut rather closely.
Not 'a completely different way of going into space' but a completely different way of coming back from space, if anything the use of solid fuel boosters could be seen as a retrograde step. However, the use of an unpowered liftng body to get from the upper atmosphere to the ground is truly innovative.
Paris cos she knows all about re-entry.
Price will be
Whatever the Kindle is -$10.
Paris cos she is available in flash.
Is hardly ever right, and he definitely isn't about this one, why do we have someone with a degree in PPand E in charge of this sort of thing. If this goes through it will be on a par with John Harvey Jones' decision to slash R&D at ICI, great in the very short term but absolute disaster for any future products, or in this case graduates. Mandy needs to realize that without scientists and engineers and the products they research and develop the E in his PPE is fucked, trying to predict which piece of research is going to be the basis of a new area of industry is like pissing into the wind with the full expectation of staying dry.

a godsend to those who have FTP boxes in their home countries linked to a PVR enabled HTPC.
A court decision that makes sense from a US court, has the world gone mad? next thing you know we'll be able to get hot coffee and burn our mouths with gay (non pejorative use of the word) abandon.
Paris cos she has a label 'Hot may cause burns!" Presumably friction ones.

have I got a surprise for you Lil Stevie, all your all in ones belong us.
Paris cos she knows what a boy wants for Christmas.
This is a bollocks
Lawsuit, if it hadn't been on youtube then the offenders likely wouldn't have been caught.
Something wrong here
I have a 64GB SSDNow and a 2Gb ondisk file copy of mp3 files takes a little under a minute.
Plague on both their houses
OS X: certainly not as stable as is reputed, could hang my macbook pretty much on demand. Left with an inoperable reboot cycling Macbook after a software update.
W7: Less crud, but still issues, permissions seem to be a bit messed up with administrators being told they need administrator rights to delete stuff, WMC is a joke when it 'shuts down' i.e. it don't. It is a lot more difficult to crash, though I still manage that sometimes. UAC, despite being less of a pain than in Vista, has been disabled by every W7 user I know.
Paris cos we all know she uses Slackware
64Gb version already in use
Had it for a few months now, some tweaking regards redirecting file locations and turning off indexing and keeping the number of machine initiated writes to a minimum is required. I use it as the boot drive on my HTPC which has mechanical drives for video/audio storage. The SSD gives the front end (WMC or MediaPortal) a much snappier feel and keeps the boot to the W7 powered HTPC frontend to about 30 seconds from a cold start. Overall I would recommend it, got mine for $109 from Newegg a while back and worth every red cent.
Worst environments are dry heated buildings which are carpeted, especially bedrooms. Think of where all that dead skin goes! Another disgusting place is a kitchen I have received a non working PC for repair which literally had a 2mm coating of grease on every surface, inside and out. repair consisted of a can of lighter fluid and a match.
Paris cos she knows all about dirt
You better be offering more than that for the sort of money I would spend on a relatively decent laptop. Or half a macbook, oh wait I said decent didn't I!
1 out of 3
Only had 1 trashed system out of 3 upgraded, the other 2 work perfectly. The 3rd well it got W7 installed, needed it up and running fast and a 30 minute install appealed versus a 3 hour fight.
Paris cos... who knows why just cos.
There was a similar issue with certain USB chips under XP, caused write errors to external CDRW and DVDRW drives, don't think it was ever resolved as I think the word went around to avoid certain USB controller chips if you were using an external optical writer. Mind you some would argue that anyone using iTunes or WMP gets exactly what they deserve!
Beer cos it's Friday night!
One on a 4GB dual core AMD desktop, 32 bit, took about 20 minutes, another on a 4GB quad core Q6600 32 bit with a 64GB SSD, and 2x 4TB RAIDs took about 30 minutes after updating some PCI card drivers, another on an 8GB triple core 64 bit took about 25 minutes (this machine also dual boots Ubuntu 9.10 faultlessly), and finally on a lenovo Y550 laptop dual core 3GB 32 Bit took 20 minutes. All installations apart from the laptop have been operational since the RTM and none of them have had any serious issues, I haven't noticed any increased time to desktop on boot, and if my machine was taking 20 minutes to get to a desktop I would be threatening it with a screwdriver at the very least!
Paris cos 20 minutes is probably too long for her!
Really quite good
I've been using it on 2 machines, one an HTPC the other a work machine since the RTM some time ago. TBH I've had little to no issues, couple of BSODs which I tied down to a bad memory stick.
Just installed UBUNTU 9.10 on the work machine in dual boot ith W7 and they live together very well, in the past whenever I tried this the GRUB usually ended up screwing the W7 boot or screwing the UBUNU one, this time the W7 partition is chainloaded perfectly from the UBUNTU GRUB. I have had a couple of driver issues on the work machine I have yt to find a working 64bit driver for a Toshiba 453 printer/copier, the vista 64 one doesn't cut it.
The HTPC machine has a tuner card, firefly RF remote control, Quad Core 6600 with 4GB DDR2. It has to run 4GB of RAM due to the limitations of the Hauppage Dual tuner, pah!, but no other issues found, this machine is on 24/7 and only reboots when updates require it. During installation the installer detected the cheapo SATA RAID card I use (Rosewill 209) but didn't install drivers, following the final reboot into windows a quick visit to windows update donloaded and installed the required drivers. The 4 drives which were actually 2 XP spanned volumes were immediately picked up and correctly mounted.
Overall impressed, UAC lasted about 5 minutes until I figured out how to disable it!
For $10 an episode
I want something that is a bit more challenging than the latest RTD drivel. In fact I would be hard put to think of any TV episode of any show that is worth that for a single viewing, christ a multi-million dollar movie will retail for that within a year of it's release. This particular BBC exec needs a swift kick in the nazzums.
All of the BBC's output is available on various club based P2P services within 2 hours of broadcast, cost nil, if the BBC offered a licensed service for its foreign followers these outfits would decline leaving only the tardest of freetards.
Adblock Plus anyone?
New UI new learning curve, deal with it.
Paris learns new positions all the time.
Fell off my Chair
the very thought of a corporation doing something legit.
S'what I said all along kill the cats, Cat protection league to be disbanded and replaced by a Catfinder General service.
