Dane Geld shake down money union fees. If they don't then the EU will most probably fall apart because Germany can't afford to keep it going.

"And now we are being told that bacon sammies are even worse."
Now they're just being silly!
I think that is intended to soften us up ready for the time pork will be banned to fit in with diversity.
it that important that the FUCKNAUTS at the NSA have to know about the fungal infection i had on my bell end?
Yes, it allow them to make a blackmail profile of you for possible future use.
as customers look to take advantage of new operating systems
Does that mean that Computacenter's field staff are going to need to learn all about Linux?
Considering the win10 offering from MS can anyone actually trust that this Hyper-V offering has been tested and isn't just beta software put out for others to test?
Re: is there a comprehensive list of cockups?
and ship beta code en masse.
It sounds as if much of it is still alpha code that has not been tested at all.
Actually Brexit is the excuse for gouging money from too many people. With businesses that is just blatant profiteering on their part to screw the British customer, but then it has always been thus.
Actual useful software then.
For you maybe, for others they can be useless. Not everyone uses MS beta software.
lanyards used at the conference, ... that contains a light and can be controlled from without
With this as a demo just think what 'fun' the script kiddies can have with whole cities full of 'smart meters'.
It's another fine mess the previous government got us into.
Re: How long before...
Google steps in, starts developing specific laser technology
At first I thought you were advocating a Laser Launch System as described in 'High Justice' by Jerry Pournelle.
Then you spoil it with ads.
Re: vain, manipulative, grandstanding
Last time I checked that was the text book definition of a politician or corporate exec.
Exactly, maybe the police should be giving orders like this to, at least, all politicians.
Re: downvote here
Precrime doesn't exist yet.
As far as the police
farce force service are concerned it does.
Re: Not listening ...
@VinceH, learn on your desktop until you are confident then you can change your laptop. That way you will not be embarrassed in front of clients.
Re: Not listening ...
I can't do everything I need on that, so I have to keep Windows on the laptop
Simple answer run win7 in a VM (VBox works well) on your desktop machine, that way you have everything where you need it.
Re: In reality...
In fact they did that in France just before the turn of the century, I think my last sticker was for 1998. Since then there are more people owning cars, at least in my part of France, and the government gets more money from the fuel used. It also means that the Gendarmes have more time for dealing with real crime.
Will this apply after we leave the EU?
Yes because the ECHR has nothing to do with the EU monolith.
Has anyone actually defined what they mean by AI? If not then they are chasing unicorns under rainbows.
No, it does not mean computing faster.
Maybe they should all read 'The Two Faces of Tomorrow' by James P. Hogan as a starting point for discussions.
I couldn't agree more. All our systems are AMD, servers, workstations and equipment controllers, and we have a few ARM based NSA boxes.
Oh, I forgot the the Intel P4 box we inherited that we seldom use.
Is Oracle feeling the pinch or is Larry wanting a bigger and better boat?
Re: silver lining
@tbijlsma, I think you forgot the /sark tag.
It works both ways
A site that requires me to turn off ad blocking just goes into my black list and I will never go there again. The same with paywalled sites, there are plenty of other sites that have the same information.
Re: Gaz and Leccy...?
No, the actual use is to turn you off when the wind doesn't blow and there is not enough electricity being generated because the EU diktat called for the closing of real power stations.
Another fine mess Red Ed got us into.
Humm, I wonder Huawei will be left to manufacture and sell the hardware?
There was also 'The Dreaded Batter-Pudding Hurler (of Bexhill-on-Sea)' by the Goons.
Right now, you can order one of these for just shy of 400 bucks
They have to be joking or they don't want to sell very many of these boards. But then this is typical Intel - over priced for what it does.
A better idea ...
... would be for them to develop a real holographic display that does not require you to wear any special equipment. One that you can change the size of depending on what you are doing.
It could replace laptop screens and provide large screens for tablets and smart phones.
Re: Google Cardboard
Bragging was not a consideration.
Bragging is the biggest incentive there is. "Look, I have this new shiney, shiney that you don't have."
Often the prosecution's strategy is to convince the jury that the person was capable of the offence. For this they will present information about the defendant's life-style viz what they read, who they have known, etc.
And don't forget that the 'moral' attitudes of today are vastly different to what they were back in the 60s and 70s. Those of us that were young then can testify to that.
Re: reliability eh?
But that's not the point - Microsoft are again moving to restrict our control of our own systems.
But from Microsoft's point of view that is the whole reason. After all, they want you to pay a small monthly charge for their SaaS offering so they have to be in charge.
The fact it could, and most probably will, break something does not deter them, you should only be using their approved and developed software.
All this is going to do is encourage more people to find alternatives and then move away from MS.
Does this install happen if installs fron third party sites are blocked?
@AC, that is much too sensible it should just work, but then you know that NO government department does sensible for the simple reason they can't gold plate it.
You know that US courts have jurisdiction all over the world. Oh, they only think they do. Isn't about time some other countries started doing the same against US companies?
Adblock Plus blocks Facebook block of Adblock Plus block of Facebook block of Adblock Plus block of Facebook ads
The social network reasons that by giving users tighter control over what ads they see
How about the default being NO ads and people being allowed to then select if they want ads and if so what ones.
When will the ad pushers realise that most people don't want adds pushed in their faces when they visit a web page?
You also have to consider if those people actually want that education in the first place.
There is also the need for motivation of the minorities in the first place.
heads must roll for this clusterf.
It should start with Turnbull, after all he is the one in charge of all government departments and organisations.
How much ...
... did that ruling cost the entrenched monopolist ISPs? In fact it has cost them twice, first to get the state law passed and now to 'sweeten' the federal court.
Re: How they spend $10m on....this?
Simple answer - it's a government contract negotiated by government MBAs that don't have the ability to negotiate their way out of a wet paper bag!
I am surprised that it wasn't a higher figure.
Re: Are you seriously telling me...
You don't have to be part of any community to use any of the open-source operating systems.
Absolutely true but the problem arises when someone new to the OS has a problem and tries to ask a question on a forum. It is then that you see superiority complexes and snobbish behaviour appear. And then they wonder why more people don't make the move over.
I am not a windows user but we do have a copy of XP sitting in a VM for the odd times when someone sends a windows centric communication that we can't open with anything else.
Re: Just one
I wish I could dump FB but I have some stupid** relatives that won't do standard e-mail and only let me know what they are doing via FB cr*p.
**I have called them that to their faces many times.
Re: More from down under …
They obviously didn't expect the servers to crash and burn so quickly. I suppose it should have been expected when it was organised by MBAs who generally don't have a clue.
Maybe old is best
My old diesel 4x4 is of an age before computers were fitted to cars and strangely enough I don't have any of those security problems. The doors unlock with a key, the engine starts with a key and only stops when you turn it off (or run out of diesel) and so on.
Re: Windows 8.1 is NOT an upgrade...
Best to go to 7
The best thing would be to do what the French Gendarmes did which was to completely change to Linux everywhere in the country.
Re: Avast problems?
You removed windows! A damn good idea, what did you replace it with?
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
Is that the one they use to make sure that there isn't any intelligence in the US government?
Why single out the UK government? Did they think it would be an easy target?
Why not try the same thing against the US government or are they afraid they would be 'dealt with'?
Re: Ample is as good as a feast
Which part of Microsoft do you work for?
Re: Only if it works.....
it meant the anti virus needed uninstalling
A very good anti virus program that because it was doing its job.
... is not up to supplying reliable base load electricity.
California has put all their energy eggs in that one basket and now they are finding that it does not work they were told it would. Much of it has been shown as fraud perpetrated against the government and tax payers.
Somewhere along the line the will have to give up the green dream as a dream and get back to reality and build real power stations.
