Lot of A's in space with Fonzie there.
Re: UltiMate Security
I doubt it. His described condition in the article might make getting a coherent PIN number from him difficult, but he seems more than willing to dispense his DNA freely.
Re: I want closure!
Only if you go the long way.
Re: Quality is key
Yeah. I had an HTC Magic and an HTC Dream. After about 7 months the dream would show full connectivity, but would not receive calls until your rebooted it. My carrier offered me a reduced price on the Magic as a replacement. After about 7 months it kept umounting and remounting the SD card. Replacing with different brands of cards did not resolve it. All data on the cards were corrupted.
After spending large amounts of money on HTC in a small amount of time and being told they were not under warranty, I went with other manufacturers.
Despite the good reviews of their latest offerings I am still wary of HTC.
Re: You can get the bible in klingon for kindle
Of course you can get the bible in Klingon. There is a whole empire of Klingons in this quadrant. Who ever heard of the Mighty Welsh Empire?
The proximity sensor that turns off the screen when In a call and holding the phone to your ear no longer works on the new version.

Re: Still in the updates....
Go into "Turn Windows Features On or Off" in the control panel and uncheck Internet Explorer. It will then not appear in the updates.
Re: you must be mistaken
Actually the universe is only 7 years old and was created by the Great Zabu.. On that date we were all created in our current forms, complete with false memories, jobs, diverse cultures, religious beliefs, and complete back history.
Zabu has a sick sense of humour. All hail Zabu.
I saw the video attached to the article. Are you sure all this fuss is not just from a stuck pixel on the monitor?
I see no rolls
They are not rolls they are pouches of Inarizushi.
They put they support IPv6 on the box, but the e4200v2 I got would not do IPv6 over my PPoE connection using PPP. The only option they had was automatic native or manual IPv6 tunnel. I went out and got an Asus RT-N66U. I now have a dual stacked IPv4/6 site as well as a test IPv6 only site at home.
Cisco has to do more to support IPv6 than say they do so on the package.
Total Perspective Vortex
Eric Schmidt held the press conference while eating a piece of fairy cake and telling the crowd that he was, in fact, the single most important person in the universe.
Well I am now on the fence.
I went and viewed his videos. The first was ok. The 2nd he references his teacher and starts with the following statement:
"Mr. Feneley gave me an early presentation date because he is sick and tired of me not showing up to class. In retaliation, I made this film as taboo and unrelated to the project as possible.
Enjoy, you short-fused bastard."
The video segment ends with him exploding his teacher with laser beams.
Give the children porn
"We are talking about preventing children from having access to inappropriate content, and how we can work with ISPs to make it that little bit more difficult for them to do so"
So they are going to make it more difficult for ISPs to prevent children from having access to innapropriate content.
It may be just me, but isn't that the revesrse of what they are intending?
No one says it was at work
The words used were "admitting using his parliamentary computer to visit porn and gambling sites."
It just says he used his computer to visit the sites. My guess is that he used his work laptop at home.
Not even close
The correct units are Olympic pools per light year.
Maybe someone should invent a machine to goes "bing".
If you give a tour of a facility be sure to wheel it out to impress the brass.

Apple denies the flaw
The users are just playing it wrong.
And if it was a flaw it exists in many other players.
Press conference to follow.

Only £77.50!!! Great deal
I had my passport renewed from Canada and it was $260 CAD or about £170.
A little research
Call me a cretin, but our division was given the Apple shuffle as gifts. When iTunes 8.2 was released everyones shuffle stopped working. The Apple forums were inindated with requests for help and Apple released an "unbricker" tool that worked in some instances. In most instances the PC could not see the shuffle anymore when it was inserted.
If you look at the Apple forums and tech support you will find some history on it.
I suppose a 100% failure rate for a few hundred employees is statiscally possible, but unlikely.
Not the first time from a manufacturer
Apple bricked iPod shuffles a few years back with their iTunes update.
Unfortunatelly iTunes license says it is not repsonsible for hardware damage. Worked out great for Apple. The first and last Apple product I owned.
Of course you would wait
Wait 30 years for it to rake in revenue then apply for 60%. If you alerted the band to the infringment in 1980 they would have removed the riff and you would have no one to sue.
Addition vs. Deletion?
How do we know that the balloons were not added to the US ad, rather than removed from the EU one?
Rogers in Canada started this a year ago
Rogers started this about a year ago. Previously my poorly typed URLs when unresolved would be redirected to Google and the one that I meant to type would usually be on the top of the list.
Then one magic day I got a Rogers/Yahoo ad list. I could opt out with a cookie. When you did this you would get a Rogers/Yahoo 404 page with an option to resubscribe to the ad list.
With that and them packet shaping my VPN connection to the office (2 MB transfer in 15 mins on a 6 Mbps line) I switched ISPs.
Funny thing is they promote both of these network management techniques as a way to improve overall customer satisfaction with the internet experience.
Really a stretched 42" tv
So, let me get this straight. I currently own a 50" 16:9. When watching 16:9 I get the full 50". When watching a cinematic bluray I get the bars above and below. What it seems I am paying extra for is the loss of a full 50" 16:9 HD picture, so that I can watch a cinematic movie without bars. hmmmmm.
it is not their fault on the speed that the clients receive, but on how they bill their customers. A signal strength reading from the aDSL gateway will show the max speed the line can offer. as well, the ISP is aware of the speed its customers are connecting with it. If you, as an ISP, can only offer your customer 1Mbps and they are paying you for 8 Mbps that is wrong. The ISP's will gladly sign you up for their top of the line package and provide you the lowest speed, all the while taking your money for their premium service.
Although you and I are probably well aware of the discrepancy between aDSL speeds ordered and received, most people are not. They happily pay for their 8Mbps service, not realizing they could be paying less than 1/2 of what they currently pay and receive exactly the same speed.
This is how it is the ISP's fault.
The 21'st century is when it all changes
If you look behind her and to the right you can see the Torchwood hub. She may have come through the rift.
And the correct answer is....
If you read the Wikipedia article and the OAA article it states "About 71% of the surface is covered with salt-water oceans" This is not the answer to the question "How much of the Earth is covered by water?" It excludes lake and rivers, which are freshwater.
The correct answer is 74%
Even Reg writers make mistakes.
Not a free speech issue
As pointed out in some articles this is not a freedom of speech issue. This is a private website with it's own rules that users agree to abide by. The Terms and Conditions and User Agreements layout what you can and can not do. The site has limited the types of pictures it wishes to post onto its servers. As a user you agreed to this when you created an account. These rules limit what you can post and protect you from what others post.
Although other people in this forum have singled out America for its moral conservatism there are much more 'conservative' nations on the planet in which breastfeeding pictures are not culturally acceptable.
Facebook is a site designed social networking, not social activism. The views of a portion of users in one part of the world are not necessarily the views shared the rest.
In a set of related stories....
The city of Austin Texas is suing the creators of the Bionic Man;
The city of Prince Nevada is suing the creators of Wonder Woman;
and the city of Dildo Newfoundland is suing the adult film industry.
Turkey, Iran, China and ....
Just follow the examples from the countries listed above and order the ISP's in Kentucky to filter out the gambling, and the evolution sites while they are at it, from the end users in his home state.
After all gambling is an insult to Kentuckishness.
I'm curious as to what sort of training one would receive in Canada as shown in the external link, "Plumbing Training in Canada", in the pic.

It would therefore be reasonable to assume that EMF radiation from airport metal detectors would violate the same law. As well all luggage should be exempt from x-ray scanning in case an illegal were smuggled in a suitcase.
and the cat.
This week in Canada
They Bricked IPod shuffles a while back too
iTunes 7 locked up 1st generation shuffles. Both my friend and myslef both lost our shuffles on the same day. The internet is full of user groups of people trying to get it to work again. Have not seen a class action lawsuit over that one.
Peter Davidson was the Doctor from 1981-1984
If the 5m represents the salaries of 20 teachers then that would mean each teacher makes $250 000 USD. Either this district needs less expensive teachers or more math teachers.
