"Comes with a windows license"
Here, buy this cake, it costs more because it comes with anthrax.
It's all just applications on my network.
Re: Getting facts right puts things in proportion
The only reason TalkTalk has such uptake is they go to great lengths to make you feel like a child abusing pervert if you choose to opt out of this safety feature.
All of the above comments on equality
...says the middle class white guy.
90%+ of social network users don't know or care about this sort of stuff. They use what everyone else uses.
Watch it then up vote me.
Iplayer is available on the internet, I shall claim copyright on all of Doctor Who.
The cute things they say
To celebrate Friday here are some of the conversations I have had in the last year.
"The server is down."
"Which one, we have hundreds."
"I don't know, I'm not in IT."
"Yet you feel qualified to conclude that one of the servers is down."
"Are you sure the words you are looking for aren't perhaps 'proxy server'."
"OK, smartass, the firewall is blocking the proxy server."
"The firewall between my PC and the server is blocking my traffic."
"There isn't a firewall between your PC and the server."
"The network must be down then."
User had locked their account by typing their password wrong.
"Service is down, everything is running slow."
"Surely it can only be one or the other."
"It's a network problem, the user is getting a 404 error."
"So they are receiving an error back from the server to say that the server cannot find the page in the URI? Doesn't that imply that the network connection to the server is working perfectly?"
"I don't have the actual error number."
"Right, so we're just making things up now?"
Re: @The Vociferous Time Waster Made in chelsea
Get over yourself.
Made in chelsea
As a young man I spent a good long while in various bars in chelsea getting bought drinks and sleeping with a variety of rich totty who were prone to using me and discarding me.
It was hell.
So they could just be destroying all the modified kit they put in there to monitor the Graun.
I seem to recall this had the same engine as Leather Goddess of Phobos. Now there are a set of achievements we should tweet about. Nice gorilla.
People don't need to study preposterous acronyms.
Winkledumb and Winkledumber
So these two olympian blue bloods have all the breaks in the world and they still fail to have any real clue. Someone else who isn't doing it to make daddy proud will do it better and make billions.
But does it run Linux?
That is all
640k ought to be enough
This program won't be here past the end of the millennium so let's save a few bits on the date.
In the future there may be a telephone in *every* city.
If you build it they will come.
Rory Twitter Jones is a fantastic example of the sort of person who should not be reporting on tech. I recall the days when a journo was expected to have a basic understanding of his field however Rory is just another mac user with Fry scale incompetence whenever he strays too far from the press release he is regurgitating.
So that is a shared key which means it isn't really secure anyway. If they cared about security they would at least have individual logins using radius or similar.
Probably the key to the guest internet access rather than something useful.
Ad based revenue
Worked fine for Yahoo!
In soviet Russia
The amusing irony was that the communist government of Soviet Russia did exactly this sort of wage fixing on a continental scale.
Not aimed at you guys. It's aimed at the chimps in sales and the orangutangs in marketing who might feel better about their company not having outlook like the cool crowd if they have some sprinkles of useless social on their email client.
Same people who got iPhones because all the plebs in IT had a blackberry.
Get a bunch of dedicated volunteer developers interested in you platform. Genius move.
He's a tool
He isn't an activist, he has no socio political agenda. If he was buying shares to pass a motion to get production on shored to the US or improve conditions in the Chinese factories he would be an activist investor. This guy is just a tool trying to squeeze as much juice out of a successful company to line his own pockets. Let's call him what he is: an investment troll.
The middle car has a monkey on the bonnet showing it is clearly a busy day at Longleat and the cars are nose to tail so this driver has no escape when the monkey rips his wiper blades off and proceeds to masturbate on the windscreen.
So if your partner is wearing glass as well does that mean you can switch to her view and see your awful cum face?
This isn't money
By the very inflationary nature of it this is just currency rather than money. Money is something with intrinsic value whereas currency is just a number. If we took away the need to mine for bitcoin currency then anyone could do what governments do and print more money, this just puts in a process to slow that down and control the inevitable inflation.
Re: Where's the story?
Two hashed passwords are compared. The password is neither stored or transmitted in plain text. Perhaps it's PAP you are thinking of?
I must be in a minority
I actually like my wife and enjoy spending time with her. Weird eh?
Same principal as the penny stock scam. Buy some stock then create a buzz so price goes up. Sell stock and profit.
Most Americans won't watch the Fifth Estate because they missed the first four movies already - nobody likes sequels anyway.
Emergency OK. Otherwise not.
A 999 call should roam on any provider, I have a feeling it already does. Emergency services should have their calls prioritised and be able to roam on any network.
Joe Sixpack shouldn't, there should just be regulatory and customer penalties for service providers who fail to provide a service.
As anyone in IT will understand, if everything is a P1 you don't understand priorities.
Re: XBox One vs. Playstation 4? Or...
So where is the documentation? This will never be passed into service as it is a support nightmare.
It's not rocket surgery
There is such a tiny margin for error in this approach what we should all celebrate in India's behalf if they pull it off. I recall a comment about the US moon landings that said it was like firing a pin at a pea from across a football field using only a slide rule.
Re: And still no client-side encryption?
I manage fine with Dropbox following symlinks, that is all my Dropbox folder contains: symlinks to a whole heap of useful folders and files including some config files I like to mirror across machines.
Tech's forever blowing bubbles. Nerds come up with stuff then sales chimps tell the world it is a revolution and people who know nothing about tech buy in to it. Eventually the accountants point out there is no real money to be made and lots of people realise they were fleeced.
We have seen it before from infrastructure to software to Web 1.0 - the whole Web 2.0 thing was just clever sales speak for 'this time you won't get boned I promise'
Notable exceptions are those services that fill a need or create a need while making actual money cf Google, Facebook.
Re: two coils
They should compensate.
The big surprise here...
The big surprise for me is that there is an IE 10 and 11. Not used a computer with it installed since IE 9 was "the next big thing".
Apples and oranges
One wants to eradicate horrible diseases using personal wealth and the other(s) want to use corporate resources to increase the number of users of their systems and so increase their advertising reach and revenue.
Obvs use a prepay amazon card to pay for your aws account
1 set up aws account
2 script setup of ssh server
3 tunnel your traffic to it
4 terminate the ssh server and refresh daily
5 block that fuckers
Is Slough the sum total of the David Brent angle? Wernham Hogg exterior shots were done using 40 Liverpool Road which is a Kall Kwik sales office.
Forget the member...
The photo is not the problem, it is the fact he is so flagrantly denying it despite the evidence. As a politician he has lost the trust of the public. Had he said "yeah, bit embarrassing eh, I made a mistake" then he would have done nothing wrong but lying in the face of the evidence is ridiculous.
It's only a phone. Enjoy your weekend.
Nice one, fellas
Blackberry is the classic self fulfilling prophecy. It has taken years of pundits saying they are going down the tube to discourage people from buying them and ultimately lead to their downfall. Expect the same from iOS now as Steve's death will of course lead to the downfall of Apple in the creative mind of hacks everywhere.
Jess, I call bullshit. What mail system sends mail it has not received yet. Did you put 4tb because it sounds impressive rather than realistic?
You can say what you like but nobody* bought a playstation since the PS2.
* for statistically significant values of nobody
