Ever heard of SEO?
From HTML source of http://www.briansouter.com/ :
Suggest that 301 redirect is not the only SEO issue they need to address...
could have used this last week!
Not sure about mass-market appeal but I came back from a week's camping and cycling holiday in the netherlands last week and my mobile ran out of juice mid-week...
Doesn't sound like a secret to me
The cold war is over
I look forward to

the tab mix plus add-on allows you to configure this
It's a shame that the desktop mail apps don't approach threaded messages like gmail. I used to use kmail but once I got used to seeing mail threads which included the messages I sent alongside the messages received I switched. A lot of desktop mail apps will quite happily thread Inbox and Sent but not the two together.
like my mummy always said...
... they're just jealous
I just disabled it in my gmail account straight away without being particularly arsed to find out what it was.
Good to know I'm not missing anything in the least bit useful.
somehow i feel cheated :(
i've written my own
sudo passwd root
This is just the user being sloppy about their META tags and is more a user education issue than a 'bug'. I've seen loads of PDF conversion tools populate file paths in the META info like this. The assertion that you can only change them with a text editor is also a load of bull - there's loads of software out there that allow you to set META tags.
Most users don't bother about these things (as you would expect) so I've always made sure that PDF uploads on my websites populate the META tags with info provided from the web form/database...
shouldn't it be
cross browser standard
What we really need is a cross-browser standard for doing all this sort of thing. I for one won't be applauding any of these individual contributions until i can get (at the very least) the same bookmarks synced on gecko, webkit and opera browsers.
...i did it again
I know - anyone would think that Google was interested in expanding in the future...
"von Tetzchner isn't sold on the Google plug-in that turns Internet Explorer into Google Chrome. He compared the move to Netscape's ill-fated efforts to put IE and Gecko rendering engines into the same browser"
"That didn't make things easy for [Netscape]...You end up with a mess."
Surely that's the idea - but unlike Netscape, Google are creating the mess in someone else's browser :)
"Madelson is a crook. he doesnt belong in politics"
surely this statement is ironic?
If you install any bleeding edge distro the minute it comes out on a machine you rely upon you're asking for trouble.
And I'm sure it's worked perfectly for most people. I get more hardware incompatibilities installing Windows these days. I do understand the need to seek the most newsworthy angle though.
You make it sound like this is the end of the line. They'll identify and fix the bugs very quickly as they listen to their users. That's how open source works...
I stick with the LTS releases personally.
this is what kde4 has done:
1. decide they know better than their users
2. decide to fix something that for the majority of users ain't broke
3. try to copy microsoft's perverse idea of what a good user interface is
...hence after 10 years as a perfectly happy user of kde i'm now moving to gnome.
google chrome anyone?
We all like to jump on the bandwagon and indiscriminately slag off plod don't we? Sure, the hapless police officer didn't do a great job trying to think on his feet, but you can completely understand him wanting to stop a journalist identifying a firearms vehicle being revealed to the public.
Personally I'm sad to hear of yet another instance of this whole holier-than-thou journalistic culture under the pretence of reporting in the public interest whilst merely provoking another headline grabber: who care's if firearms fall into the wrong hands and some poor sod gets shot as long as there's a good story to be sold?
A trifle wordy
"Linux server users are reaping the benefits of virtualization more than those running Windows."

proof of concept
"Probably it's some sort of proof-of-concept thing for hackers,"
concept proved: leave your front door open and people will come in and use your home...
he used the word 'Years' a lot
battery worth it
if the battery really does 'last all day' then this would be the feature worth paying £500 for
think i'd put a decent operating system on it though...
and all they were doing were trying to provide an accessible alternative for the deaf or hard of hearing
Firefox 3.5 is not in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Which is supported until April 2011 (and doesn't suffer from KDE4 either...)
Took me a long time to ditch Firefox 2. You could type a filename into an <input type="file"> form element in to it without it insisting on popping up a frickin' dialog box. The upgrade from 2 to 3 broke enough so I'm not in any rush to go to 3.5 even if it is better for porn...
Another downside of this enforced upgrade is that it's a real headache for developers who want multiple versions of the same browser on their desktop.
excellent - i've got symbian on my nokia and it isn't anywhere near interesting enough...
@Dr Patrick J R Harkin
I should imagine you are correct that any NHS email address would have been routed over N3.
Glad to know that our data is completely safe as surely no employee in their right mind would have the gall to put an internet email address into the CC field....
seems to be back online
re: what's the scale
it's 12 metres long ( never used the Ruler in Google Earth before :) )
Sorry am i missing something here? The freedom of information request was refused in April as the report was unfinished. Then the finished report was published in July. This isn't really a cover up now is it?
"And there the whole 'linux is great' thing falls horribly flat on its pointy little bill. There are *no* decent development tools for linux. And until there are, you will never persuade developers to leave Windows."
Maybe no development tools which get windows developers to believe they are writing good code...
Seeing as it's based on the linux kernel is this an OS in the same sense that KDE, Gnome and Ratpoison are?
As long as I can get bash on it I guess I'm happy :)
P.S. I was just about to flame a BBC website journalist for writing in an article this morning that Google Chrome OS was a threat to Linux on netbooks but I see they've since removed that bit :)
terribly sorry to darken your website with my inferior school attainments
