Valid points

but are they taking into account the peeps who use torrent/usenet etc to get stuff that isnt available on any of the normal channels, old deleted stuff for example. Do they look at the figures and say, 10 million people accessed TPB last month, thats 10 million pirates! Unaware that there are perfectley valid reasons for torrents...

Microsoft pulls a patch and offers PHANTOM FIX for the mess

Re: Have we reached the de facto "end of life" for Windows 7?

After acquiring a windows 8 laptop I had to fix, I decided to try windows 8.1 for a decent length of time.

What an absolute cluster fuck.

So then I tried classic shell which immediately transforms the desktop into a much more familiar pleasing format. But what classic shell cant do is resolve the other stupid fucking issues that just get in the way. Stupid things, like msconfig being removed and integrated into task manager. Things in places they just shouldn't be.... Easy things made difficult for the sake of change.

So a week later I've dumped it, its an utter fuck up of royal order... Touch screen desktops are like finger print scanners. Cool gadgets but hopeless within the world we live in...

Back to 7 for me......

Well,

there is rarely the need to deploy the updates the day they are released. In fact, it seems prudent to make your own patch day the tuesday after microsofts offering as most of the issues are plugged by then.

Besides, fucked patches are still a relatively rare occurance.

Dont see android being updated as regularly...Nor apple. I appluad MS for their stance on patching software, even with an odd hiccup...

PS, reg staff, WTF have you done to the site????? For the love of god, revert back...

"Up To 60%"

I love the use of this phrase "Upto" xxx% Whether is hair dye or fucking toothpaste or bitcoin.

Covers upto 100% of grey hairs.

Removes upto 100% of plaque.

So in other words, the actual figure could be 1% or 59%. So AT LEAST half of all bitcoin transactions are hidden and untraceable.

Either way, thats a less accurate score than a fucking lie detector and any fule no that that particular piece of "technology" is as accurate as a plumbers estimate...

FTC: Sony told big fat WHOPPERS in its PlayStation Vita ads – and now it has to pay

Oh Dear

Another promise made by Sony that turns out to be hot air.

I have never forgiven them for the PS3 Linux fiasco. Nor the Root Kit...

Not because i like linux especially, but simply because they removed a feature that was included at the time of sale on the pretense of security.

Bullshit.. Cracking the PS3 is still a massive job and ODEs are now just about redundant on it due to firmware changes.

So 4 years later, the PS3 still HASNT been "hacked" to the degree of the other consoles...

Despite Sony's protestations that the linux ability was the reason. Even the secure keys that were retrieved have had no massive effect on piracy on the PS3.

Re: incorrect information

Not quite correct.

You have a waranty against defective parts and bad workmanship for two years.

You have 6 years to file a claim when a product has been sold to you in a faulty condition (nvidia chip failure fiasco).

Developing a fault after 8 months of use and selling an item with an inherent fault are two very different things.

Re: Need to re-play Far Cry 3

The first time i played it i ended up having a paddy and binning it so to speak.

Then in a calmer monent i tried again and got to grips with the other aspects, such as crafting, looting, etc etc. That was 2 years ago, i have completed it ohh, say 20 times since. I rate it up there with Half Life 2 as one of the best games of the last two decades....

Frankly, some of the best money i have ever spent on a piece of software.

It has its minor issues but they are a small annoyance in a magnificent world..

Oh god....Messenger debacle MK2

I have been a staunch IE user since day 0.

I have resisted the likes of Chrome (especially), fire fox, opera et-all simply because IE fulfilled my needs for a browser. However, the bloat is starting to set in.. I detest Skype and i detest having the fucker hard baked in to my browser of choice even more...

So, i ditched messenger due to Skype and switched to an alternative, looks like i will be doing the same with my browser..

Re: One thing they haven't clarified...

Lionel, why are you able to construct and articulate that but yet be unuable to grasp the difference between "of" and "have". It's as big a faux-paus as "axed" as opposed to "asked".

However "should had of" also makes no sense. Or as the other commentard stated "Should've".

I AM a grammar nazi, but I am not trolling, it's an honest question.

So, just for clarification "should of" does not exist, should not exist, will not exist.

NB "should, of course, done XYZ" is permissible.
