Re: Hard to get the staff?
The thing with that advert is, they will find someone.
But they will get what they paid for...
Re: A Working backup exec product would help
I am nagging my workplace to find another backup solution for our customers when the renewals come around.
"[Symantec’s] storage assets – Backup Exec, NetBackup and the Storage Foundation product sets – have been around for a long time, but revenues are down."
Backup exec 2012 being crap and not factoring in multiple servers to one tape drive doesn't help. People are moving onto other products.
Pisspoor EE indoor signal where I am, and according to their map the coverage there is "good"
Re: Bitcoin logic
And they wonder why no-one takes them seriously.
Re: >Libertarians hate regulation... until they need it
"OR one can get insurance"
Clearly you don't deal with insurance companies.
Libertarian answers to anything seems to be "free market" "insurance" and "sue"
"Did regulation stop you from getting food poisoning last time you had a take away"
yes it did.
Re: >Libertarians hate regulation... until they need it
When the lawyer is king... But there are no laws so where do you sue? How is it enforced?
And when Judge "My mate Bill" declares your house actually belongs to me, whatcha gonna do about it?

" try going into your bank and asking for the gold, and see how far you get"
My bank doesn't deal in gold. However lots of places do I can go there and trade FIAT currency for gold.
"Is lack of regulation the problem?"
Libertarians hate regulation... until they need it
MtGox CEO Mark Karpeles issued a statement in the form of a picture yesterday in which he insisted he had not done a runner.
Mark Karpeles' business plan
All your Bitcoin are belong to us.
Libertarians be all "government save us" now
So Libertarians, replace currency with gold and Bitcoins you say?
Libertarians be all "get rid of FIAT currency and replace it with gold and Bitcoins"
Do they give you a readable copy of the full contract in the shop and do you have to initial every clause to prove you have read and understood it?
Anything that says "refer to website" is worthless.
I saw those EVA suits at KSC. Lunar dust is abrasive
Sonicwall support has taken a serious nosedive since Dell has taken over.
Is this the Cyberpolice?
They'll backtrace you
After Apple's help was no help last night, I shall be emailing the board.
Polygraphs don't work.
Any employer that insists on one clearly has fuck all understanding of science and odds are the place is a blame culture based one, rather than solutions based. I'd never work for a place that insisted on them, ever.
Example of why polygraphs are FAIL:
You are anti drugs, like very. One question is "do you use drugs?"~
To which you answer "no". But its an insulting question and pisses you off.
Later on the question is repeated. The reaction will be stronger because its more of an accusation then.
Mind you, they're a good interrogation tool.
I'd never call for a complaint, I'd rather email. And when no email address is listed, I look up the board of directors and email them.
Just a bunch of
Just a bunch of code monkeys.
Re: Quite sad...
There is a reason I wear a cheap suit. I spend too much time crawling in the dirt to wear anything better and ruin it.
Mind you, I am damn good at my job and my customers love me.
Shotguns and time
Looking for a job can be tricky. I work mid-upper range support/installs and tend to use the shotgun approach, applying for as many jobs as I can.
There is a lot of competition out there and pinning your hopes on one or two is a sure path to disappointment. The person on the other end has a lot to read so get to the damn point!
One thing that does irritate me is recruitment firms asking me to fill in their standardized form.
Is it worth the time doing the form when you just get lumped onto their database anyway until the right keywords match (months later sometimes)? Very rarely for the paygrade I'm in. When the rate goes up to £35/hr and more, then its totally worth it.
And unless its a job I really really want (like The World Food Program and/or another UN agency) I also think a covering letter has a very poor ROI. I will not send one to an agency. Its 20 minutes (and to do a personal covering letter rather than the garden variety standard one it should be taking this long to research and revise) that you will never see again.
Its a single shot muzzle loader. The fools.
When 3D printing makes toys with moving parts, then look at printing a firearm.
I used to regularly get death threats from BNP/EDL supporters for daring to disagree with them and pointing out the stupid shit they said.
Re: Isn't there an IP issue here?
Technically yes, but unless they are making money or she can prove a loss in court there is not much that can be done.
I have an old HTC 7 Pro. Yeah, its heavy, yeah the battery drains quickly when on t'internet, but I like having a full keyboard.
Apps wise, it could be better, but as WinPhone gets better market penetration, this will improve.
Re: There goes another word...
"I am sure you'd change you tune quick if YOU were the one being trolled."
I have been, many times, I've even had my address published with Streetview shots of where I live.
meh... Its mostly noise and bluster.
As soon as you lose the desire to get the last word in, or defend against obvious trolling, its not that big a deal. So what if some troll gets the last word in slagging you off. It makes no difference.
I wanted one, but they were priced way too high.
Mining? Come on, its not mining, its pressing a button and letting a machine process.
Processing NOT mining
The problems with the system have been reported by Private Eye for quite some time. They are only doing something about it now because they're planning to sell it off. So the liability owed to the people jailed and cheated can be paid by the public, while the private company avoids it.
If I went to jail because of their system screw up, I'd sue them for a good million. Only if it hits them in the pocket, and hard, will they bother doing anything about it.
if only these card companies were that good at blocking merchant services that take money from scams
I can see Anonymous next doxxing target
Re: What a load of bollocks.
Good luck with that mate. tell us how it goes.
changed from BE2012
What did you change to? I'm trying to convince my workplace to stop using BE after the hell of 2012.
Must have own car
Reminds me of jobs that say "must have own car"... yeah right!
The company going to pay for business mileage insurance, the type that gives a courtesy car for breakdowns? The company going to cover the added risk to your car while you use it for their business?
And "business mileage" does not cover this.
"Bitcoin mining "
You mean Bitcoin processing.
right wing GROUP not right wing POLITICAL PARTY.
And its more than just economic policy to consider.
Re: The Jase Violence
"As far as I can see, the EDL has carefully kept inside the law,"
I see otherwise, from their carpark fights, causing trouble in KFC, and that train video I posted.
The UAF and EDL are the same, just different political leanings.
As for the EDL not being a right wing group and "against extreme Islam", well, what about attacking occupy because "they're unwashed lefties".
The EDL is a right wing group (and a bunch of customers for Tommy's wares). The EDL is a violent group.
This is the EDL
Re: @The Jase
I can tell you've never been doxxed. Scary at first, but it amounts to a whole lot of nothing in the end.
I've had enough of the EDL threaten to beat/kill me, I have very little sympathy for them.
If I believed enough in a cause, I'd stand up and be identified for it.
"Intimidating the members of EDL is censorship."
And the EDL intimidating KFC staff isn't?
The EDL marching then, by their very nature is censorship under your definition.
So what do we censor?
Selling licences not games
If its licences and not games being sold, will we get to see old school coin-op arcades coming back? The games at the local shops?
