*covers check engine light with tape* - "There you go - fixed it!"
Next to the soap in the shower.
...but the upgrade crapped out, initially leaving my machine unbootable and taking quite a lot of work to put it right. It's still nagging me though.
"Hey Froot Loops - you're up!"
Exchange 2003 -2010; Dell PERC H800 started freezing. Very uncomfortable.
...they're not confidential records any more, are they?
"Those kinds of musicians are often the most interesting" - THIS. One of my favourite albums was and is "Drunk With Passion" by The Golden Palominos , who were largely a studio only project, but able to call on artists like Richard Thompson, Bob Mould and Michael Stipe to fantastic effect, in no small part due to the fact that it was a studio-only deal, and they didn't have to take it on tour. Yes, live performance is great, but if that were the only way to finance making music, albums like that would never be made and we'd all be the poorer for it.
IME, it's frequently the case that if it involves technology or has wires in it, other departments are keen to offload it onto IT.
Yes, it's kind of the Blair Effect - "Look, you're right, yes, but PLEASE don't be on my side anymore..."

I'm on GiffGaff, so O2-by-stealth, and 4G pops up a lot for me too.
Altho never thtarting a land war in Athia or going in aagainst a Thithilian when death ith on the line? (Icon for Dread Pirate, obvs.)
That presumes the ICO would exercise them, which they wouldn't. These are the incompetent lackadaisical fucknuggets that did precisely *nothing* about Phorm, remember.
...Colin Baker as the worst, but that's largely story/script-related. McCoy had some good moments, but I concur with the general view regarding Scrappy Doo...sorry...Ace. Awful idea for a character.
Because his incarnation was incorporated into the continuity, but Cushing's performance was always a standalone?
...it sounds as though Meetups procedures are really, really shoddy.
1. It should be perfectly possible to separate payments from organizational control, so someone could renew on behalf of the Group without being handed control over it; and conversely
2. Where a group has organizers, being quicker on the draw with a credit card shouldn't allow the payer to displace them.
3. The "let's notify the whole group that control's up for grabs to anyone quick with a Visa" model of renewal notification sounds utterly nonsensical.
Certainly, on the basis of this report, it's a service that I wouldn't trust.
I'd have replied to that, but the plugin crashed, sooo....
Our Lumias are very popular, the *only* complaint being "I can't run <android app> on it, otherwise I'd buy one". Anything that removes that hurdle is going to make WP more popular.
As a phone OS, WP is flipping awesome and frankly, any carping about it generally comes from people who've never used it in anger; I've used Symbian, various flavours of Android, Windows Mobile even, and my current Lumia knocks any of 'em (and any fruit-based phone I've seen) into a cocked hat. The *only* flaw is the relative paucity of applications, but anything I want to do, I've found an app for or the functionality is baked in.
My first smartphone was an HTC Touch Dual (still have it somewhere) but honestly, even with a UI makeover from HTC it was nowhere near as usable as a WP device. At the moment I love my Lumia 735 to bits, and I hope that MS *haven't* chucked out everything I like about it in order to turn it into a clone of the Android that I moved away from.
Honestly, I really don't get this - for the vast majority of stuff that I want to do, either the functionality's built-in or there *is* an app. Games, I mostly don't care about on my phone, but I'm genuinely curious as toi what you want to do for which support isn't available.
"What that group did is illegal and writing about it would be against the law."
Yeah...that law probably doesn't say what you think it does...
...to believe that Adobe take Flash's security as seriously as they do its stability.
I have a very bad feeling about this...
Oh well done - you had to warn the buggers, didn't you?
Escort? I see what you did there...
...I sympathise. A lot.
Nativity 3 - Dude Where's My Donkey. A film designed to immolate the Christmas Spirit and urinate on the charred and defiled corpse. Honestly, probably the second worst movie I've ever seen. Not even "so bad it's enjoyable", just excruciatingly, painfully, woefully ill-judged. Kill with fire.
Agreed, if you're expected to respond *outside business hours or your agreed shift*. If it's just there for when you're out of the office in the course of your normal working day, then no.
Flash is the most appallingly crashy piece of crap. Kill it with fire.
Knowing is truly dreadful - it's like someone took the start of a half-decent thriller and then tacked on the arse-end of a SyFy special (hence chez nichomach we refer to it as the cut-and-shut movie).
Well, yes - generally in order to create an obligation between two parties there has to be something of value exchanged by both sides (consideration). FB may be arguing that absent that being provided by its users, they aren't consumers and FB does not have an obligation to them as consumers. Note, I doubt that'll wash, and I don't think it's a good thing (and I don't see why I got downvoted for raising the possibility that this might be their argument, but hey ho), but that may be the logic they're applying.
...the logical conclusion of the statement that "if it's free, you're not the customer, you're the product"? The users don't pay to use FB's service, so it's arguable (I guess) that they *aren't* consumers, at least not legally.
Honestly, OK via a free Microsoft supplied add-on (cunningly called "Desktops" - well-hidden, eh?) but it's been there since XP/2003. I would suggest that anyone who *hasn't* found that probably hasn't been looking very hard. Of course there're other options like Virtuawin and so forth, but suggesting that Windows has "just caught up" is just flipping stupid.
Noise-wise, I don't know whether I'd say I *liked* it as such, but lo these many years ago when I lived in Aberystwyth, I remember being overflown by a couple of (I think Turkish) Starfighters, and I've never heard another aircraft produce anything like the unearthly shriek from them. THAT was a noise which could occasion a swift trouser change....
Well, true, but that's like saying that having your knackers run over a bacon slicer is slightly less painful than running them over a belt sander...
a third party replacement and one which, as in the case of that link, is an actual fake intended to deceive. I use a number of generic MicroUSB chargers without issue.
...I can get some of those completely safe chairs? No particular reason... *whistles nonchalantly*
Upvote, but I always assumed the allegory was supposed to be to the American Civil War, rather than the War of Independence.
And the words "massively volatile" are why I'll happily avoid using it as a currency as long as I have a choice not to.
...most of the stuff we were interested in, so we'll throw you a bone."
...but we do a lot of paper recycling in the UK as well; the company I work for built a plant that's currently chewing through 640,000 tonnes p.a. and given that it's in the UK it doesn't get to play fast and loose with truly nasty chemicals.
...*doing* nefarious things, since the nefarious things have already been done.
No more Proliants here. Ever.
The point is that the P8 can't do the job properly without assistance from another aircraft.
That presumes an ability on their part to do so, which appears unlikely given the people concerned.
Up until last week I would have agreed with you. Until I was dragged away from what I was doing to deal with an Openreach engineer last week who turned up with an instruction to fit a line under an order that someone had affixed my name to. Such details as he had regarding the job were scrawled on the back of an envelope, and specifically referred to an office block round the corner that we also own, so he hadn't even turned up at the right building. The engineer had not been properly briefed as to where the line that he was fitting was to be installed or what it was to do, beyond that it was a "monitoring line". This did not appear consistent with the only Openreach order that I had on the go, and I asked him to contact Openreach to confirm the details. He informed me that he could not. An Openreach engineer, replete with Openreach bag and Openreach jacket could not call Openreach to check the details of a job that Openreach had assigned him. I think we could all benefit by pausing for a moment to contemplate the utter blithering idiocy of that situation.
By dint of patient questioning, a colleague and I were able to elicit that in fact the service to be installed had nothing whatsoever to do with the Metro Ethernet service that I had on order, and in fact was nothing to do with me whatsoever. My name had been spuriously attached to an order with which I had absolutely no association or involvement. We do not have any idea to whom notice of the installation should have been given, but can assume that they were not properly notified.
My colleague and I were obliged to stop doing our actual jobs to cater to an inadequately briefed engineer, who had been given incomplete and inaccurate work instructions and the wrong contact details, who had no means of correcting the deficiencies of the information that he had been given, and who presented at the wrong address. To cap it all, the service that I *actually* have on order I can get no information on whatsoever. BT. They're not even funny anymore.
Forbidden Planet didn't have http://nerdalicious.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/leela-louise-jameson-2.jpg either....
