And in further news today
And I for one welcome our new google overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted user of mobile cellular technology - I can be helpful in ringing up others to toil in their underground advertising cartel.
Try new handy bambey brain... Handy bambey is the key to your inner light - available from the google chrome brain neural network. Plug yourself in.
Makes me laugh
People say "was this software tested at all?" - and it was an open source release. Also they had a beta release to two.
Now who was going to test it? Next door neighbours cat, Fred, Bert, Wilma.... or the person saying "Who tested this?" who paid £0.00.
DotNetNuke is excellent Open source software competing with Drupal on the Microsoft stack. It's time it got some press. Why the silence? Everyone thinks open source is Linux - WRONG.
NB @Number6 - on the web everybody probes for anything. If you are on the web you get probed.
.NET runs on Linux. Whilst you may find that situation/platform comination a joke - well... look at J2E etc...
Dolly's website not working correctly under IE8
Dolly's new website - the menu doesn't work properly under IE8 (check out "Media").
Don't buy an apple then....
Buy a pear...
Let's just ignore this little mishap for now before it turns out to a full blown "The Register" diplomatic incident.... pretend it never happened and hope the "M" word goes away.
I vaguely remember there was a vote on this.... all I can do is warn you what happened to "Ant and Dec" and "This Morning" when they got into voting....
Let me tell you they had rather sore bottoms afterwards if you know what I mean....
Hey I thought you weren't allowed to say MOBE any more? I thought this was decided?
Love the irony - the entire interview is available on YouTube (er... google)....
> So which is it, BT or HP?
Yes - and where exactly do they live?
Dot Dash Dot
Post a comment here - but in the title area just add dots and dashes.
See the warning display (you need text in the title field).
Now notice you can't correct any text in the title area? (IE8 anyway).
I wish to complain about my own comment.
Well it is faster
I have a 3.2Ghz Pentium 4 PC that is FIVE YEARS OLD running XP.
I wiped and started again, now I've been running Windows 7 with the same applications and same PC for 2 days.
Yes I said OLD hardware. Only major difference is that I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 rather than 32 bit XP, my PC's motherboard was once of the first to support 64 bit.
Hey folks - if you don't want to be involved in a plane crash then don't go flying - and also make sure the captain doesn't do the checks before you fly either. Therefore all planes = bad.
Nice to see Ubuntu users screaming for attention as usual....
Does not work at all
Nopeity nope nope nope - not right now anyway,
It is clearly the monster - whoever says it is a boat is talking out of their ass. Everybody KNOWS the monster is REAL, boats are NOT REAL.
Those pointing out is a boat really need to get their eyes examined....
Today is the day my MSDN subscription runs out :(
Microsoft Open Source Platform
What about Open Source Software that runs on the Microsoft platform.
Why does nobody ever mention this??
Funny, normally if it's a Windows vulnerability you have a trillion Linux heads jumping up and down in the comments forum. When it happens with Linux I notice nobody from the MS camp can be bothered :).
Of course it's all Mozilla's fault. Nothing to do with google. In all cases it's the latest piece of software you install that must be to blame. Why can't Mozilla stick with just one version then there wouldn't be any problems, why should the users make sure difficult decisions such as "upgrade". It's just not fair ;).
Firefox is generally not an option
I'm a big fan of Firefox. It is a far better browser than IE. I find it amazing IE6 users don't get their browsers updated to IE8 (or even IE7).
The thing is for most clued up organisation who use MS, using FF is not an option. IE can be easily be updated by a central server using Windows Server Update Services. This gives organisation a certain amount of control with patches. Firefox I'm afraid lacks behind here.
Those still on IE6 who haven't updated to IE8 probably need to sack their IT managers for being clueless, or more likely their directors for stopping them upgrade. Whilst IE8 is pretty bad compared to firefox it suits most users (unlike IE6).
Sharepoint - bah!
Who needs Sharepoint when you've got DotNetNuke...
It's better and it's free!
Yes they are "ambushed" - of course they are...
I'm very happy using my iPhone emulator using Windows Mobile.
I hope some of the PCW journos get a break here every now and then.
This was a great publication - sad to see it go... I hope it comes back when the time is right (maybe in 10 years when it becomes Personal Cloud World).
