6,000,000 RPM equivalent
Well the propose 100 kHz would be.
Remember their boasts about Crysis 2
They said it would be the best looking console game ever, not a good idea to boast about that.
Then you get compared to other games which were better looking.
More game engines to more platforms is ALWAYS good.
Clever game, lots to do, but just didn't grab me. Some games do, some don't.
A lot of people found it boring. But then I liked FarCry 2 and a load of people found that boring.
Am I the only person who found the original game a bit boring?
They are coated with something that makes them survive.
Only damage to any was a hub crack in UC2.
BD-R seem as robust
Re: BD Backups
I reckon most BD sections are about 1/4 the size of DVD sections, but careful shopping means I can buy a BluRay for the same as a DVD.
Games - PS3 PS4 XBone, we have the first two
Re: BD Backups
Seem to be plenty when I look around.
Plenty of games ones around as well.
Used them a few times
Pioneer burner and IMGBURN and I backuped the photos no problem except I cannot remember where I put the disc.
As to will the format take off.
When Sony and Panasonic work together yes it does tend to (BluRay & DV)
Re: Gold is still controversial
Gold plated TOSLink cables
Most stupid idea ever.
Haven't heard those mentioned for ages, they were THE power transistor, also used it controllers for model railways.
Re: Golden ear set again
It could be due to hearing issues that MP3 is causing the problem.
My hearing is not wonderful but I can still hear high notes and can hear very quiet noises. But MP3s can sound terrible.
Re: CAPS LOCK MUSIC
I just look to see what is best on price versus robustness,
As long as it is chunky and copper I would use it and I do biwire, simply brcause I can.
With cables the important things are.
1) Is it copper, copper is good.
2) Is it nice and beefy, this equals less resistance.
3) Is the covering good, we don't want it letting the cable get damaged.
Crashes on both PCs here!
Well my previous FD Trinitron had a digital tuner, but I moved to HD & LCD when the tube just started to lose brightness in the corner.
None of my TVs have had root kits on them, the newest runs Linux
Re: Ancient hardware
Is this the hardware we spent a fortune on 10 years ago? The hardware which has done its job with no issues, which has gained bigger HDDs, more RAM?
The hardware which when my work PC failed ended up in the office for 1 year, and was the fasted machine in the office despite being built so long ago.
If old hardware is fast enough why scrap it?
The killer for me as a home PC was MPEG2 encoding was slow, now a second PC at home.
Re: Design issue with that website
I showed my wife that site, she thought it was a scam site as well.
At least try to make it look like windows.
My PC is quite new but had to have XP at the time
I built it before 7 and used a XP Pro licence as there was nothing else I could easily install at the time.
No easy update to any other OS.
I suppose I will have to watch the XP embedded PC at a customers and copy things off that
The other PC is 10 years old and already boots into Mint as well.
He has been named.
Just need to see pictures (of him) then the women will know who to knee in the groin.
And yes he is a pervert.
Re: Well done El Reg
But I am shocked, why downvote you?
Yes we cangasm
Then I nominate the award to Bob the Builder.
Watch out Bob's on the job
Re: "there're plenty of people who'd prefer to take the "cruise" approach" @h4rm0ny
Trains are often packed, when they are the quickest 100-200 mile or so means of transport they tend to be busy.
GWML is something else, people are commuting 100 miles or so in about an hour.
Luxury cruises, well airship sounds civilised.
Re: @ TRT They almost laughed him out of the boardroom...
I didn't get the quote originally but as soon as Thunderbirds was mentioned I remembered.
And TB6 was a AFAIR a Tiger Moth
Run to the hills
Is currently stuck in my mnd, at least it is a decent song.
Re: How to load an airship with celebrities
Depends on which ones.
If they are Bruces mates, in the cabin would be suitable.
Ed Force 2
Food for thought.
I bet most discussions between
terrorists are face to face or dead drop and do not involve the internet.
Sounds like usual control freak scaremongering
Not sure may have been Win 98.
No that is CD\
That is supported as it CD.. but not CD...
I used to use it a lot CD... up two, CD.... up three
It was great
CD... in DOS/CMD ect
What ever happened to CD...?
I used to use it and it has disappeared.
Now I get "The system cannot find the path specified."
So where did CD... go
Re: PS3 exclusive
With the consoles so cheap and so many brilliant games, pick one up and try it.
You will enjoy it.
My sons like both, they play LBP and Minecraft, no reason they can't
I will say that Sackboy is cuter than Steve.
Cheapest option sometimes
This happened at a customer and it buggered the database big time.
It was a few days before the idiot responsible mentioned it, by then hardware checks had been carried out the database server writers involved, no faults found,
In this case they took the strategic decision to restore what was restorable and to suffer data loss for what was not.
I hope they sacked the moron responsible.
Ours is the only place I have seen their new mid range surround sound receivers. But then we have lost all three of our home cinema / HiFi shops locally.
But then the previous SC franchise holder went bump and they were a well respected local company with multiple home electronic shops.
Hard market these days, and nowhere to test what you want to buy. How do I compare between the receivers in this price range, I now cannot.
RIP all of the home cinema specialists. And strangely we lost our last model shop due to the downstairs HC / HiFi / Photographic place shutting.
So if our SC shuts down we would have a city with no HiFi or Home Cinema shop at all.
They wonder why our town centre is so quiet, well where are all the shops?
Re: Don't need no stinkin' ribbon
Actually leaving Wordstar behind was one of the saddest things in computing. One of the first MS-DOS packages I had come across and used it for years.
Looking at the fallen software is so sad. Wordstar, Netware, Clipper, the high featured text editors, all things I miss.
Of course everyone will have their own list, my wife was a Word Perfect user.
Re: So it's her fault - Ribbon
Because I don;t want to spend ages learning to use something I use rarely. I can use most File Edit menued software to a standard I need just by playing.
Why do ribbon apologists forget about occasional users, the letter a week people?
The only software I have been trained in are the tools I use for developing software.
Re: So it's her fault - LibreOffice
Because Office 2000 is good enough for us, it can write letters,
But I would look at free alternatives as the CD got sat on.
So it's her fault
That I have to run office 2000 on the home PC.
I DETEST the ribbon

Slower, slower rate of climb. not as good RADAR.
That said the Eurofighter is basically the BA EAP, and the EJ200 is basically a Rolls Royce design.
In otherwords would the Typhoon have been better if we had gone on our own?
Seen enough scrambling to know spoked wheels are fine (now called motocross)
So when you saw Pegasus who first thought of ....
The famous jet engine.
That is what went through my mind when I saw the RSS feed.
Re: There was a TV programme about it
No BBC ONE
There was a TV programme about it
With Adrian Chiles and Christine Brinkley
Knowing how small a Chihuahua is I am a little surprised the local cats haven't had a go.
Annoyed moggies have sharp claws, and do not suffer annoying dogd.
Re: IT'S CHEEEEEAAAAAP!!!!!
As I have said on a few occasions, the good Indian IT staff are running their own companies in India, or are employed at decent wages for India in one of those companies, or are working alongside you as a decent member of your team.
They are not much cheaper but generally are very good.
Beancounters use the inexperienced and not very good.
To a lot of use the objections are not about GM as such but some of the strange things they were trying.
Swapping out genes from wild potatoes is fine, doesn't bother me as an example at all, good idea, same as those purple tomatos, all seems fine.
But when you start adding in jellyfish genes, this is what worries some people.
I get the feeling that the UK teams are simply a lot more cautious than some of the foreign ones. As some of their other aims has been nutrition and taste.

They wouldn't let him expand his factory so he moved it abroad
Re: The picture ..
JD got the idea from a saw mill.
He admits he thought of the application but just repurposed the cyclone seperators.
