You can diss Linux all you like, but half the Internet runs very well on it.
I like the way you put the "comment" section at the bottom half of the page so that we know which half you have presented an opinion on and which half you have recreated without any bias or spin whatsoever.
Re: Good on 'em
WTF? Breeding cattle for slaughter in no way excludes people from caring about their animals' welfare. You ruined a good point about transportation by showing your bigotry.
Re: Units and comparisons...
And speeds should be in knots. km/h is not metric and is an abomination. If you must use metric then m/s would be correct.
It's not a fucking gas station.
Apologies - force 10.
The only reason why a 60mph wind had any publicity is because it landed over a very populated part of the USA. There is nothing exceptional about a force 11 hitting land just the reaction to it in the media.
They are killing that too. And that is really useful.
Not going to miss Google Reader - Thunderbird does the same job. Not fair for those that do use it though.
Serves people right for not buying British.
Frying of testicles
Does it come with aluminium gooly protection?
Shame the sun didn't come out
Or is London always covered in cloud?
Good effort otherwise.
Good to see...
...El Reg is prepared to write bollocks on both side of the argument.
Little bit of a bugette in the password section.
If everybody is driving round in cars powered by hydrogen fuel cells then it doesn't matter what time of day the electricity is generated, it can be used to create hydrogen.
I want it
and I want it now.
All been done before.
Auberon Waugh proposed something similar years ago for tabloid newspapers.
He called it the Nipple Tax.
I hope the global warming fanatics are right. I am terrified the world might get colder.
Could be useful
All this needs is some device that pulls the paper taut and presents it to the user in a vertical format.
If they have actually managed to delete a Facebook account then these guys are good. That's degree level stuff.
"but we'll trust the NCDC to have made the appropriate adjustments."
Why would we do that?
Not good enough
We clearly have a lot of catching up to do with the USA.
Crack down on this evil....
Something must be done about all these sodding pop-ups warning us about the bleeding obvious.
Re: Bloody annoying
Session parameters in a URL? Why would you use such a clumbsy tool when you could use an (almost) universally accecpted method of dropping a harmless text file on a user's computer?
No shit Sherlock
You wouldn't expect them to publish the truth given that anybody over the mental age of 6 can see this floatation was hugely over-valued.
Wonder if they will all end up like Alan Stamford.
Behaving like Jonny Foreignor
Glad to see we are taking the same policy towards stupid European legislation as all the other victims of the EU - by basically ignoring it.
Anybody that says writing HTML from scratch isn't coding is just splitting hairs. Just because HTML is easy doesn't make it not code. You have to teach HTML before you can teach PHP or ASP anyway.
Facebook is the very definition of a financial bubble. It is overpriced, has tiny margins and its value is based on the expectation of continuing rapid future growth. I can see the share offering being a resounding success for six months and then a lot of investors realising they have bought vouchers for magic beans.
The internet is littered with failed social networks and even if Facebook is not one of them it is almost inconceivable that it will ever be producing enough profit to justify a £100bn capitalisation.
Searched for "web designers isle of wight" and got the Yell page for jewellers as the only result. They may need to tweak their algorithms just a fraction.
Good to know...
...our taxes continue to well spent.
It's on the interwebs...
... so it must be true.
Do I look bovvered?
Am very relaxed about Google harvesting this information. It makes Android satellite navigation one of the best at finding your position. And I do not broadcast my wi-fi name anyway.
However they would have much better publicity about the database of SSIDs if they hadn't "accidentally" sucked up all the internet data in the process. That was really naughty.
...on ticking a box.
I said God Damn!
God damn the pusher man.
Emperor's new clothes etc
Is there anything new that you couldn't do with tables 15 years ago? Or are they not cool enough?
In its defence...
DAB good, FM good.
They are both working side by side now. Lots of choice. Why bugger it up and turn off the FM signal and deprecate a billion transistors? Let's just keep it as it is with FM filling the gaps and DAB providing a much better service where it is available.
The only change needed is extending the range of BBC stations on DAB.
So not GoDaddy's fault then
Big boy done it and run away.
Are they still going?
What, all of them?
You want him to delete all the sans-serif fonts?
The beta is so fantastic...
...I switched to Mint.
No "frickin laser" today? The Register is getting serious.
The electric cars you mention in the end of the article are the saviour of uncertain electricity production because, together with some cunning electronics, they allow batteries to be charged when there is a force 5. As long as people don't press the "I need to charge my car now and bugger the squirrels" button.
Also the whole point of a national grid is that you even power out over the whole country. It would be a very large high pressure system that stopped all wind in all of the United Kingdom including the off-shore wind farms.
Works very well in cars. Works well in houses too. And outside. No wi-fi needed.
Didn't like Unity so went back to Gnome...
... with no clock and no entry signs for battery, Bluetooth and Wi-fi. And no icon to log out so I can go back to Unity.
Must not install beta versions. Must not install beta versions. etc.
It will be no good.
By the law of every second Microsoft OS is a turd, this one will be a turd.
I for one...
... think the studies quoted in the article are bunkum. If you keep the old software and hardware then you don't need to train people which has to be cheaper than new licenses, new boxes of chips and 10 days of Powerpoint presentations to teach people about the Office Ribbon.
Does the ecological effects of all this throwing away of perfectly good kit not get a mention?
Surely reconditioning and reformatting have to be the best way forward. Recession or otherwise. Do it for the polar bears.
End of an era, etc
And then they can put the Space Shuttle in a museum next to the Harrier and Concorde and any other cutting edge technologies that have been discontinued and not replaced.
Wait for it
Do you think they can do anything about the one dimensional acting?
Actually the CGI was a bit clunky. Bit of a remix can't hurt.

That's just wrong. According to Google in May last year it was 320kB.
...until they don't let the likes of HTC put their Interfaces over those boring squares.
