RIP MSN Messenger, kthxbai. Microsoft finally flicks on KILL SWITCH in China

There was sod all wrong

with messenger.

Excepts MS's constant need to fuck us users about whilst chanting the old "but WE'RE telling you its better mantra".

YOU might be telling us that MS but the USERS are telling you something completely different and you just don't seem to be able to get it through your ever thickening skull.... Sometimes, change is not good....

You constantly invent ways to push even die hard windows users (me) further and further away from either, A: Legally purchased MS software or B: towards a totally non-MS path...

Keep going....I only have a finite amount of MS love.......

Re: um

No Worries Tim. The downvotes clearly show the lack of thought and rational thinking brought about by fervent anti microsoftism...

I do sometimes think downvotes are a direct retaliation by some commentards so stupid that they are embarrassed by their own thought processes..

Ahh.So this explains

my BSOD on my laptop last week.

It really borked my laptop although to be honest, the update was the straw that broke the camels back.

So after 30 mins of fruitless self repair, out came the ghost disk. Within an hour, back up and running...A minor inconvienience (to me)...

Fisrt time an update has ever borked my systems...

Re: Pirates?

The reason there are pirates is because of the starving millions.

The reason there are starving millions is because all the aid we give them is frittered away by the despot dictators like mugabe.

The reason there are dictators there is because we put them there....

Re: Use spotify myself

@Lionel Baden.

"If I didnt know better i wouldn't of guessed they used DRM."

If I didnt know better i wouldn't HAVE guessed they used DRM.

My god.... Getting sick of this "of" instead of "have".

At NO point in the English Language (this also applies to you, rest of the world) does "of" ever follow "would" or "wouldn't".

Bad enough having to be "axed" a question.

Texan parks quadcopter atop Dallas Cowboys stadium

cornz 1

Re: me

Yes, they DO stop instantly. At least modern electric ones do. If you owned / flew one you would know this. "Dinky toy quads" do not count.I have stopped mine (blade 350qx) with my fingers and whilst i agree, it hurts, thats all it does. You may get a mark but thats all. I'm not saying if it slams into your eye it wont blind you or injure you in some way but they simply dont have the power/torque to chop bodily parts off. Even long grass will stop the blades.

The blades are "blunt" and are generally less than 6" long.

On a petrol RC plane/copter then yes, the damage potential is much higher.

Re: rubbish.

Its easy to spend £10k upwards on these things.

The point i was making was that for a few hundred (comparatively) quid you can get up in the air, filming in HD with almost professional results.

The extra £$£$ seems to equate to lifting power!

"looks like the standard dodgy scamware with mocked up images"

Too bloody right it does. Captured as a screen shot, its blatently obvious that they are scanned images. The images have missing pixels galore, its the crappiest, easiest, cheapest attempt to flog crud-ware i've seen.

Unlikely..

The imei plays no part in it. Jammers, well, jam. They dont differentiate between imei of one device or another, they just flood the local area with RF.

http://www.globalgadgetuk.com/rx90.html

For example, has selectable bands to block 2g but not 3g, or wifi but not bluetooth etc.

So you could blanket jam everything within a 20 metre radius. Of course, the legailty is a different issue altogether but thats about the most advanced jammer out there that Joe Bloogs can own short of military based stuff.
