You don't need to set the payload length to 64k to test a server. Setting the length to 2 bytes would do for server testing, so all you would be getting back is one extra byte.
Not just Australia
Probably subscription only
I'm going to guess that Office mobile will only work if you've gone for the subscription version of Office.
I'm just using Skydrive at the moment to share out photos with a few friends. No matter what online service you use to share & store your photos, it's always a sensible idea to keep your own offline backups.
.home is not going to be much use for some people. BT home hub overrides the .home domain.
Get rid of Miles per Gallon. We need Miles per Litre.
It's a shame they are not moving the shopping channels to a separate range.
Only certain types of date of bitth work as a pin.
If it's ddmm then only Oct, Nov & Dec with the day >=10 work.
If it's dmyy then only Jan-Sept with day <= 9 work.
How does everyone else with a birthday that doesn't fit those parameters decide what to put in their pin?
why are all those people all moaning about the ribbon interface? It can be bidden & I bet most of those posting on the Windows blog don't even use the current toolbar on explorer. Most of them probably use the keyboard shortcuts so won't make an difference to them.
Where the ribbon will be reall useful if for all those occasional users, rather than having a crypic toolbar of icons, they will have some text which will help them to workout what they need to use.
Did you see how many font bugs the OTS font sanitizing library fixes on the OSX version. (See blocks section on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=527276).
No fart apps
4.1 ... the following categories of applications are specifically excluded from eligibility for the Offer:
(c) Applications that provide a simple, single function, such as playing noise or displaying a graphic.
That's a shame.
Payment history used for targetted advertising?
All that payment history will be useful for even more targeted advertising delivered directly to you on your mobile phone.
The size if fine for a portable video player.
Yes, a bigger size is defintately more useful if viewing webpages, but if you are after a portable video player then the iPad is a bit big to be really portable and a phone is a bit too small to watch videos on, so something in between those two sizes is ideal.
Windows or Linux will do
Some Windows servers or Linux servers with Samba and the some client software such as Dave would do instead of Xserve if all you are doing is using it as a file server.
Eventually, there will be no need for external boxes as all the functionality will be built directly into each TV. So even less of a need for Apple TV.
There's always Jedikiah who appeared in the Tomorrow People TV series in 1973, slightly ahead of the Star Wars film
Now that it's in the Independent, it could be cited as a source and kept in Wikipeida forever.
How does it decide which card to use if you've got more than one in your wallet?
I'd like to see Microsoft produce a free PDF viewer. At least it would more secure than Adobe's version!
More than one card in my wallet
Just wondering what happens if you've got more than one contactless card in your wallet. How do you know which card will be charged?
If you look at thecounter.com stats, they are for hits between 1 Feb 2008 & today. So they are a little historic.
Thaking the total figures for each month & doing a few calculations given the following %ages.
IE 7 44.4%
IE 6 26.7%
Prime Computer Ads
