I don't know this world any more
Microsoft releasing their stack on Linux? It is making me question my sanity.
If they release Office for Linux I'll have to call the dribbling academy to come and get me.
Better start fitting myself for a straight-jacket now.
You don't need to commandeer them if you have your own.
I wouldn't worry too much about keeping the drone safe, if it crashes you're down a few thousand bucks, which is better than having barbecued pilots and losing a few hundred thousand dollars.
The question on my mind is can you effectively water-bomb fires from a height where you are safe from drone-strikes.
Re: $200 Laptop Comparison - Screen Quality
Not to mention that in 10 inches your screen resolution is likely to be something like 1366x768, maybe less.
I'm waiting for a 17 inch laptop that has a resolution better than Full HD.
What is this "sleep" you speak of?
Why do I get the feeling that a lot of the people that want to keep sysvinit have never tried to read a service script, let alone write one.
Believe me, when you're trying to figure out why your service isn't starting, systemd looks mighty nice, and upstart is pretty cute too.
I for one welcome our systemd overlords.
Given the new tie up between Centos and Redhat, can we assume that Centos 7 will release at the same time, or will it be a few months? Enquiring minds and all that.
No reversal needed
They have a plain text dump. They can take these password, hash them with the same salt as the FB password, and see if they get the same hash as is stored in the database. You know, like what happens whenever you log in.
If you collect the 5% stake in the company, it is then in your interest to improve the value of that company. You'd start offering suggestions on how to improve things, and seeing as you had sufficient knowledge on how to break it originally, these suggestions would actually be worth something.
I am sceptical about anthropogenic climate change, but having them talk about moving to more nuclear power makes me happy.
I may not agree that humans are causing climate change, but as a country boy at heart, I like clean air.
What is next?
We are now past what everyone suspected with "Burning Platforms", and knew when Nokia said it was going with WinPho.
I guess now we see if there was any plan past this point.
"we're going to hit the ground running"
I see what you did there...
If you don't want her, what makes you think we do.
Aw hell, with a few beers I'm sure she'll look all-right.
The BOFH is precognisant
I remember him talking about the magic of WORN drives may years ago
Re: Careful Linus
Considering the anniversary in question, it could be considered appropriate.
Re: What is wrong with you Microsoft...
Someone get the girls in bikinis!
All I'm hearing is everything in the kitchen screaming racial epithets at each other.
They are all free to use, it's just how much you have to pay for support that differs.
But I want it!
Schrodinger's cat is <blink>not</blink> dead.
Okay, okay, I'm going, I'm going.
It'll never happen.
Far too sensible, and it might work.
Finally, a way to educate the clueless, and make money at the same time! I'll be sending my details through to you immediately!
Re: "each cop gains 30 minutes of time a day"
at lease that means he's not stuffing his face with doughnuts.
Please excuse me
while I hide in my bunker and completely fail to panic.
When you've finished beating each other to death I shall come out and enjoy the peace.
"RIANZ has also told NZ Radio it believes installing a BitTorrent client is proof that an individual is sharing files illegally."
Much like living in New Zealand is proof that you have intimate relations with farm animals.
What we need now is for the likes of Redhat and Canonical to sue RIANZ. I don't know the legal mumbo-jumbo required, but surely they can pillory RIANZ over the statement.
I don't get it
What is with these GNOME devs? Between cutting episodes they have some therapy, this being the latest lot of razor-action.
In the meantime we're all aghast and saying to them, 'Why? Why are you doing this to yourself? We liked you the way you were before!'
Maybe I'm just too old and jaded; perhaps they want to vanish into obscurity. Whatever it is they're certainly flailing about a lot.
Re: Vibrating pen? Interesting.
It doesn't have to be very big to be used for toggling the bit.
Paris: I'm sure she gets her bit toggled all the time.
Re: Software Developers
It took you 5 years? I don't think I lasted 5 months!
"It somewhat ironic that the drive to extreme thinness would take guts, hmm?"
I salute you sir.
How do you make a Pole burn his ear?
Call him while he's ironing.
I know, I know... just hold off the howling mob for a little to give me a head start...
Can I sue too...
If someone says they don't want me to write a program for them?
I've been planning on throwing my crap out...
... and I could use the services of your wife. If you want a little break, send her over to the Land Down Under, and I'll put her to good use.
This is just for computer stuff mind, the car stays.
I hate to rain on the parade...
but L1 is unstable. Not only do you need to get this mass of rocks into position, but you then have to expend energy to keep them in position. I'm pretty sure those rocks aren't going to be light.
I bet he never stopped to consider that maybe Republican policies don't line up with the desires of the hi-tech industries.
Re: Don't forget the DIY stuff.
That's good and all, but that still doesn't let you export Linux instances. I mean sure, you can run the VMDK with anything that can read it, which happens to include KVM, but that's no good if you can't extract the image in the first place.
You're thinking too literally. Think of it instead as The Queen's Own English.
Engage the footgun!
If Apple wants to claim that HSDPA+ is 4G then my Galaxy Tab (original) that I've had for a year is 4G, using the Optus network.
The reality is that only Telstra has LTE, and the only phone I know of that can use it is a special Galaxy SII that only Telstra sells.
Re: Re: Not just maturity ...
Yeah, but if it wasn't for the renumbering, those kernel releases would be 126.96.36.199 and 2.6.43-rc4.
It gets funnier
Cricket Australia have a special deal with VHA (Vodafone and 3), where Vodofone gets to transmit the games live to their subscribers. The even have naming rights to the test series.
CA even tried to force the state bodies to use Vodafone as their carrier of choice, unsuccessfuly in the case that I was intimately familiar with.
The Android version works really well on my Galaxy Tab (original). Using the Smart Hub feature on the Bluray player is made much easier when you can use the tablet without reference to what's being displayed on the TV.
Being able to search YouTube for music and start playing it while in the other room is great, and text entry is so much easier than using the IR remote.
I just wish it was possible to remotely turn on the TV and Bluray player, but I guess you can't have everything.
More than amazing.
These things are crazy. I play BF3, and explosions going off nearby make the headphones shake, giving your ears a bit of a tickle.
The best part is the noise isolation. While playing games or music at a reasonable volume you can't hear someone next to you shouting, and when playing at a head massaging volume, no-one can hear what you're listening to until you take them off your ears.
Basically, these are just wireless G35s with a bit more oomph. Definitely recommend.
Oh look, a whinging pom...
That's no S2
Based on the "Near Field Communications" written on the battery, I'm guessing its a Galaxy Nexus.
I had to do a double take because my S2 doesn't look anything like that with the battery cover off.
"forcing Vodafone into a pair of 180° turns"
So they did a 360?
Facebook will learn the hard way to not annoy its product. The lesson may be too late.
Also, switching to the Queen's own English doesn't work anymore. I've been using en_GB for a while now, and this morning noticed that my feed has been infected with this 'feature'.
In Australia the taxes for a product are the same across the entire country. Sure, there's the Luxury Tax, fuel, alcohol and cigarette excises, but the rates are consistent. I don't pay a different rate of tax in Brisbane to someone living in Ballarat.
I see your point though. We can always ignore them and let them strangle themselves in claim and counter-claim while we move forward.
Yeah, I seem to remember it too.
There's been a couple like that lately.
Because Nokia isn't the only manufacturer to make Symbian phones, and not all Nokia smart-phones are Symbian.
Still far from excellent though.
