They WOULD say that, wouldn't they...
Your idea of "cute" indicates an urgent need for an alienist!
...WANT 10 times as much crapware?
...with Papercut, and they work fine. Scan to email, SMB, prints follow you around etc. Thoroughly popular system.
*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.
