That article sounds interesting
Re: Excuse me India
Self esteem? In a country with an disgraceful caste system that no-one talks about?
My mate Dave had Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion successfully installed and working on VMWare Player. I *believe* this Service Pack will prevent your VM from booting even though it downloads and installs.
It's probably a system so complex you can find anything you're looking for. Has anyone found a climatic process related to the Golden Ratio yet?
Come on, no government, 'Western' or not, desires anyone to have any privacy
"We don't multitask too well, but we do one task at a time and do it well"
I recently moved from a very large corporation culture to a small (< 30 people, 5 of which are infrastructure/software engineers) startup and the ability to drop everything a work on something else, while undesirable, is a total must. We try to be Agile but there are times when Just Get It F*****g Done overrule and sprint plan. I couldn't see an 'Aspie' ever working in these conditions, so are they resigned to large process driven corporation culture where politics also probably come more into play?

I thought facebook was subject to irish law, or something? Wasn't there a previous story about a company refusing to be served papers because the local law didn't apply to them... Or something...
TMSI is part of the SIM, not the I Mobile Equipment Id. It's only ever supposed to be sent when your device connects to a network it's never seen before. this would imply this company are operating picocells in shopping centres.
"security through obscurity"
one of the most overused phrases in IT.
Add mod_reqtimeout to your apache modules and watch it grind to a halt.
The MS / Accenture partnetship? Thought they did mobile apps
They must have been desperate for the cash. Nokia arse-raped them when Symbian was canned
EMC is in Ovens, not Ballincollig.
Tvcatchup only shows their own ads before a channel loads, all other ads are those broadcast by the channel you're watching. I don't see the problem. Also, it seems to stream at 360p at best so it's hardly in direct competition to aerial broadcasts.
Re: Mac OS X in VirtualBox works great.
I found OSX in virtual box buggy, such as doing 'About this mac' causes me to be logged on. It's more effort but it works pretty much flawlessly under VMware player.
Re: He's right about hardware and driver issues
It's not a software patent that makes using wifi on my laptop for more than an hour panic the kernel.
Re: Linux Desktop ? Yes
Any monkey any type 'apt-get install cutemonkeylollipops', figuring out the last bit is the tedious part.
Also, the package name isn't necessarily the same as the program/library name. When you search for a windows program you inevitably have a download link right there in front of you. You missed the point of Linux not being suitable for non-techies and therefore will never succeed as an OSX/windows alternative for mum and dad.
I'm glad you're an apt-get expert, I hope it's on your cv. It'll be a useful skill to have until it's replaced by cutemonkeylollipops. My technical skills are up to scratch, don't worry about me pal.
Re: Linux Desktop ? Yes
Crunchbang? Really, who decided on that stupid name? This is also something that affects Linux adoption, the ridiculous names programs are given, names that tell you nothing about what they actually do.
I got back to using Linux after losing interest a few years ago, I run in in VMware player. Fine, I don't need it enough to faff around with drive partitions. It's a mess, too many distros, I don't know what they've done to grub but installing a custom kernel requires an unacceptable amount of googling. When I need to install some program i also need to google for the inevitable ridiculous name, and google or that apt-get command. Please, no non-techie would put up with this. Linux is geared towards programmers and system builders, it always will be.
I'm not a huge fan of OSX either, to be fair. It looks really nice, mostly. Win7 has it pretty much nailed
It's the Apple iPi
MMB? LLAP? WTF?
Surely they can copy job adverts where companies look for people with Python skills as proof of usage?
It's a bit of Beagle 2

As far as I can tell, VS2012 is Windows 8 only. Meh.
lightning-fast Pascal Compilers
Weren't they 'lightning fast' because you had to write your code so that it wouldn't require two passes of the compiler?
HCL were there already for about two years. Raise a ticket, hear nothing back

Looks like Series 40 is getting too big for its boots. Elop won't have that!

Re: Developers Developer Developers????
I did the exact same thing. The UI is a big sluggish but it's certainly usable. I had to do some jiggery pokery with SLIC table and OEM keys though before it would activate as it installed from an OEM DVD ISO - I'll be f****d if I'm paying Acer $50 for a DVD of something I already own.
A few thousands years ago I heard some dude had to build a friggin' ark!
Re: Tea deathmatch?
chai is amazing but the jar stuff isn't great, if you want it hot it'll be too watery. It's a bit of a PITA to make yourself but all you need is strong tea (i use assam), cardamom pods, cloves, ground peppercorns, cinnamon, ginger and sugar. Boil the spices in a frying pan in a little water and some milk in a pot. When the water has boiled off.a.bit add its contents to,the milk
