He represents everything that's wrong with stock market based capitalism.
The original Nimbus machines were crazy - One of the few uses of the 80186, came with a weird version of Windows (2.33 I think), and had a crazy graphics architecture that was somewhat similar to the BBC micro, allowing them to run a BBC BASIC interpreter.
Even the 386 machines weren't simple clones - I remember getting into trouble for reconfiguring one to run in 386 Enhanced mode instead of the default Standard mode, which broke it terribly.
Stay classy El Reg
Because, of course, her previous name was a vital detail for this story...
Oh, no, wait, it was just offensive sensationalism and troll bait.
OONTZ OONTZ OONTZ OONTZ! RAVE TIME!
Sounds like the ideal location!

Feed your hydrogen cracker with sea water, and you can have it double as a desalination plant, solving two problems at once.
If you can't think of ways of engaging the grey matter without a day job, then you're probably not in that much need of the exercise anyway.
I know, I'll save a little money, and suck all the joy out of the experience.
Re: Twas ever thus
These higher apprenticeships sound amazing: like a degree level qualification, but without the certification, so you can't leave when you get sick of your owners! Must save these companies a bundle in H&R!
What was it like to ride dinosaurs?
Still using optical media, eh, Grandad? If you'd dragged yourself kicking and screaming into the early noughties, you'd have saved yourself a lot of trouble by using an ISO.
Cool Story, Bro.
Maybe this device is not aimed at you?
Embrace and extend?
So presumably this isn't embrace and extend because it's the worlds biggest advertising agency, rather than Microsoft, doing it?
There's also the option of a chrome plugin if you build it from source.
It's so easy
GO GO AUTISTIC FAT NAZIS!
Re: This is sad
Do you even know what a transsexual is? What on earth makes you think they'd revert?
Like any woman who'd had her reproductive organs ripped out, without pills she'd slowly die of an early menopause.

Yes, then I read the linked article, which stated they were all male-to-female.
Re: Does ? have a Y chromosome ?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Androgen_Insensitivity_Syndrome says differently.
Re: IT Angle
You've done a chromosome assay to ensure that none of them have intersex conditions, then?
Re: IT Angle

Beyond the mere lack of IT angle, this seems pretty tawdry and insensitive...
What's it like to live in the distant past, Grampa Dabbs?
I think Girl Geek Dinners are putting women off being in IT, given that while there's loads of Twitter Consultants, and managers who look after techies, and other fluff, there's nary an engineer to be found in attendance.
So they go to all this effort, than hamstring it by using GCC (a compiler well-known for the poor performance of it's object code) rather than shelling out the little bit extra for Intel's compiler? *golf clap*
All irrelevant if you live outside the US
My initial outlay was a bit of a shock, but I just bought my iPhone outright, and got a cheapy contract with excellent coverage. The overall cost is less than going for one of the subsidised deals, certainly less than a load of unintegrated gadgets, and I'm not locked into any long-term contract.
I think I'd rather leave a child in the care of a professional Dominatrix before I let a politician at them - at least the pro-Domme has some integrity and standards.
