Microsoft to bake Skype into IE, without plugins

Windows

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..

Way to go MS.... Keep going........My MS Love-o-meter just took another dive...

Re: Rock and Roll is a young man's game

Gary Numan and John Foxx are now both producing the best music of their careers. So I disagree.

Eh???

Cars, Are Friends Electric, Down in the Park to name a few of Numans frankly, fucking seminal bits of music. Although he went of the rails with the likes of radio heart and a few other odditys, i cant imagine he could ever top the quality of music he was pumping out in the 80's. But i will now open my archives up and have a listen to his newer stuff..

As for Foxx, "Underpass" HAS to be the tune i think of when i hear his name.

WTF?

Have to laugh

Only a few years ago the pretentious little lepricorn was harping on about the fact that their latest album was plastered all over the intertubes via torrent and how he wanted torrent BANNED, Banned then burned...

So it's probably the fact that their latest digital pile of aural excrement HAD to be pushed all over the sodding world, only this time via I-Tunes to get any bugger to listen to it...

Hmm.....

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.

Re: Kerching!

"My Wife (who's very non-technical) is able to use Linux at work, and she doesn't even know what compiling (software) means."

In other words, YOU installed linux, set it all up, put all the pretty icons on the desktop and said "here, love, press this to email and this to surf".

What happens when it doesn't email and surf. I'm sure your non techie SOH can then easliy reinstall it and set it all up...

Ahh, thats where YOU come back in.

Numb nutted hypocrite

" But I don’t agree with them. We don’t look at any other crimes and say 'It’s such a big problem that it’s not worth bothering with'. We wouldn’t stand idly by if paintings worth hundreds of millions of pounds were being stolen from the National Gallery".

Meanwhile, there is talk of crimes like burglary and other likewise offences being treated as "non serious" and essentially de-criminialised.

So, once again, the paymasters decide WHO or WHAT gets treated as a criminal / offence.

Frankly, i car more about my car/house being robbed than some fucking 500 year old painting or some auraul excrement CD from "Nobodys INC et-al" being plastered all over the pirate bay...

Let the fool spout off his ill informed rhetoric.

In the meantime, i will continue to circumvent the "blocks", i will continue to pilfer music and films and software. In fact anything i can. Most of which is deleted 24 hours later when the dawning realisation of how utterly shit most of the music and tv/films are these days.

The occasional gem (breaking bad) is worthy of my hard earned £££.

The occasional bit of code (keyscrambler) is worthy of my £££.

Thats the key, if something is worthwhile, most people will purchase it. If not, its downloaded, watched, scorned and then deleted.

What is there about my comprehension you seem to think is lacking??

A set of private keys were recovered, it doesnt matter how, by who or when. The simple fact is they were recovered and that allowed the decryption of probably millions of files.

No doubt a blessed relief to a great many peeps

If they hadn't been recovered we wouldn't be having this conversation.
