Have you heard the tale of Craig's Mom's Bush?
And the night it saved us from drones?
Nobody knew the power it had
They just thought it was shaggy and gross!
Craig's Mom lived a life of shame and despair
Everyone feared their great giant bush!
But then when drones were filling the sky
She unfurled her bush and she used it to fly!
Craig's Mom's Bush, Craig's Mom's Bush!
Gargantuan thicket of madness...
Bigger than Earth, and denser than gold,
Truly a magical bush to behold!
And she flew and she flew away into the sun...
And she died.
It has potential........ The second episode was a bit meh, but Balloonman was not too bad. Looking forward to more Penguin, as he really does stand out.
I was also very impressed by The Flash pilot - It's a definite huge step up from Arrow.
The Mythbusters already did it!
Well at least friendly fire and collateral damage can be blamed on lag now..........
Just tried it
Single player CoD Ghosts is playable. You adjust for the lag ok.
However, I just got my butt whooped by a normal bot in Quake 3. Anything fast paced is going to be an issue.
Still very impressive for a free update!
Running Elastix here
Running Elastix here. It's fairly easy to do a basic setup, and IVRs, queues and pretty much anything else you'd like to do is fairly straightforward.
Currently running 160+ handsets on site, mostly wired desk phones. Up until recently we were using CSIP2Simple on our Android handsets, but the native support is pretty good now.
Have been having serious reliability issues with the Aastra 57i's. the 31i and 53i have been bullet proof, but the 57's like to randomly brick themselves. Am in the process of moving our remaining 57's over to Snom handsets, which have been lovely.
I want one for my Iron Man build :)
I've loved all of the Ryan/Clark books - Fantastic author. Really sad :(
Just ordered one.
I for one, applaud the effort. If it's relatively easy to setup, and doesn't require anything from my users, I'm happy to set it up........ when it's available in the UK.........
I loved Unreal.........
...........but left it for Half Life.
Why is it not called "The Kino"?
Do you mean hidden mic, or was a bloke called Michael hiding in the embassy?
All traffic from Belarus now being dropped by my little firewall :)
Just got the HTC One for me, and the S4 for the missus. So far we're both happy, but I have found more glitches on the One.
Wifi seems to like disconnecting, unless I enable "Wifi Performance Mode", which supposedly reduces battery life. I'm also unable to get the notification sound to change - Even though it shows as having been changed.
So far I like the camera (low light is amazing), the speakers are good, and the screen is lovely. But after just a few days of ownership, I am already looking at flashing it with stock Android.........
Well that has just put Nokia back in the running for my phone upgrade next month :)
Ordered a 64GB SanDisk yesterday for my S3. Just before reading this article, I checked my Amazon order status, and it was still being processed. Went to cancel the order, and it had changed to "dispatched".
Good article, and just in time for Mothers Day too.
How exactly did the UN Security Council create a resolution 16 years before the UN existed, and 5 years before Leó Szilárd came up with the idea of an atomic bomb?
Well people had best get a move on signing this;
Re: Anyone know...
That's assuming the Qnap supports drives larger than 2TB.
Re: Anyone know...
Is that all? I've currently got 24 3TB drives spinning away in my loft. 60Tb of usable storage after RAID.
And if you head over to the HardOCP forums, I've got a fairly tiny home server setup compared to some crazy people.........
Call me lazy
Call me lazy, but where's the link to the new PAN-OS features?
I too was not interested, but my wife decided to surprise me with an early Christmas present. Have played roughly 8 hours of multiplayer, and 2 hours of single player so far, and am enjoying it.
The tweaks to the multiplayer scoring system are welcome, and should reduce camping once players have gotten used to it. I am disappointed to see the tactical insertion is back, so expect to see it being exploited just as soon as players reach the required rank.
The few set pieces that I've experienced in single player have been brilliant. I'm playing through on veteran, which to be honest is probably now beyond my skill level, so I'll probably have to reduce the difficulty to get through the final missions, which are normally carnage.
It's not a genre-changing title, but it is a good game, that should keep me going until The Elder Scrolls Online is released.
And this is bad news?
I'm actually looking forward to it.
Just ordered a set of 2013 A40s. Not sure why they were not in this review, but i assume it's because they'd be similar to the A50s.
I platinumed the game on PS3, then bought it again for PC so I could do Dawnguard. Hopefully I won't have broken this new DLC already, as I went on a bit of a killing spree whilst levelling up my Vampire Lord.
Brilliant game - It set a standard in fps games only really surpassed by Half Life. Both DF2 and Jedi Academy also lived up to expectations, although JA2 was a bit disappointing.
Was re-released on Steam last year, along with its sequels - I'd highly recommend picking them up.
WTF is the point of WTF? Is anybody really that angry/surprised the the "TF" is really necessary? Is the reg trying to appeal to a younger audience with this use of language?
Just stop, before I have to refer to urbandictionary every time I read a reg article.
As a happy Citrix and Palo customer, thing is all good news.
I think it's time to upgrade my Note :)
I'm confused - Should I buy this or an iPhone 5 - They look very similar.
I've been very happy with my PS+, especially when they break something somewhere else, as this usually results in some more decent free games.
Sony have been releasing some really decent titles on + recently. Am playing through Darksiders at the moment, and have Just Cause 2 and LBP2 to play after that.
And auto updates are a godsend. All my games and the console are up to date and ready to play.
My only minor gripe with the service is savegame storage. 150MB gets eaten quickly. Especially with 10MB+ Skyrim saves.
A little too late
Still running our server virtualization on 4.1, with no plans to upgrade, as have lost all faith in VMWare since the vram business.
We switched to Citrix for our VDI project this year, and although prefer the networking tools in ESXI, find everything else pretty much the same in XenServer, and at 1/3 the initial cost, and roughly the same in annual maintenance.
Screw you VMWare - You drove us away, and Citrix were more than happy to take our money.
Re: Oh, if we're looking for worst films ever
Agreed - If I ever meet Speilberg, I'm taking my three hours back.
What's the problem?
I spoke to my Misco account manager a few weeks back to determine expected availability, got a phone call on Thursday to say they were in, and three arrived on Friday.
Fantastic bit of kit - My iPad has started collecting dust already.
In the words of jack O'Neil - "I've seen this movie... it hits Paris."
Surely rather than deflecting, we should look at slowing/speeding up the object, so that it either misses us, or hit the moon? We're a pretty small, moving target......
I'm enjoying the choice of old Nokias in the iPhone version, while the missus plays on the free Android version. Strange these were not mentioned in the article..........
Why is it going to take a month to get your Daedric armour? Complete the Dawnstar Museum quest to get 4 respawning daedrics (therefore daedra hearts) every 7 days, and some respawning ebony. Nip over to Gloombound mine and get enough ebony to craft a full set of armour and most of the weapons. Wait 30 days and the mine replenishes, and you can make some more.......
A month - Pah - I did it in a day, and that included making 500+ iron daggers to level up my smithing :)
Is this just for ICS, or will older phones get it?
Still happily running 25 Netware 6.5 servers over here. We tried OES last year for Zen11, but will be sticking with Zen7 on 6.5 for our production environment for a bit longer.
6.5 virtualises beautifully on VMWare, as mentioned is rock solid, and I doubt we'll ever stop using it while I'm still here.
I would like to have a play with Directory Services to make the client logins more transparent. I think we'll wait for OES11.
Looks useful for determining the exact location of the robot dog that is hunting you down on mars.......
I thought Lemiwinks had dealt with this nonsense!
Why no Bluetooth?
I get in the car, phone pairs with my Sony stereo, and I can make calls and listen to music. Works with both my iPhone and my Android phone.
Bluetooth works quite nicely.
