Yet 'red ed' and all the middle class goons in Labour keep making those same jibes. How many millionaires on the red benches? http://www.spectator.co.uk/spectator-life/spectator-life-life/9022871/socialist-climbing/
its not one of the usual suspects so perhaps we can be optimistic
such a glossed over mention of Ifttt.com considering a lot of the kit mentioned works with it. Why have compatibility between all things when you can have a neat orchestration layer to control all those APIs
in Australia the cost of bandwidth has been traditionally high because there is only limited capacity into the country. If Netflix want to foot that bill and deliver the content direct into the 'in country' ISP through peering or a local CDN then they don't even need to pay the ISP. The ISP is not paying for the international transit costs so delivering Netflix to their customers is a cost neutral proposition.
Still would though
Plymouth has an airport and direct train to London via Bristol
RNAS Culdrose was in Cornwall last time I checked.
this is a bit like slagging off a celeb on Twitter and using their handle in the hope they see it and respond - they usually don't
At school we got told off so we waited until the playground to say what we should have said back. At work we get hassle from our boss so we go home and tell our partners how we were right all along and in the pub when we get threatened by a big bloke we go put on some bravado to our mates. We all find a friendly and submissive audience when we have been challenged.
This is no different, rather than pointing out why he thinks he is not wrong to the person who thinks he is wrong he just comes here and explains it to a placid audience who doesn't care.
a friend from across the pond once told me a real man should have a TV the same size as his waist measurement.
He has a 56 inch tv and type 2 diabetes
but can I TALK IN TO MY WRIST like MICHAEL KNIGHT yet? If not it is about as much use to me as a non flying car
Also where is my genetically engineered miniature elephant (the size of a cat) that I asked science to sort out for me ages ago
you have to explore a lot of sea to find your East Indies
something something open source, something something free as in beer
this sort of analysis is used in many large retail organisations to spot fraud - if an employee is doing too many refunds or taking a higher proportion of big ticket purchases then the revenue protection guys get tipped off to investigate
all this chat about McDonalds when we could be making the ' "something something super fish something" nah you mean "something something super phish something" there I fixed that for you' joke
i bought a juice cable because John Lewis do not sell the official Apple ones. John Lewis do a warranty on all their products so clearly can't afford to sell the shitty Apple cables that last weeks
when you buy an Idevice you waive those rights voluntarily as you have purchased a license to use it in a very specific way
Crowley had been extremely impressed with the warranties offered by the computer industry, and had in fact sent a bundle Below to the department that drew up the Immortal Soul agreements, with a yellow memo form attached just saying: 'Learn, guys...
The usual assortment of comments from those who are outraged that the thing they think they own does things they don't want it to do - irony from the tech sector we all work in - interspersed with desktop support monkeys bragging about how they spend more time blocking the adverts than if they just ignored them.
I too run a custom firmware on my ISP router that black holes traffic I have not explicitly white listed and my own DNS server that has bogus entries for about 18,000,000 host names that I used to meticulously maintain in the hosts file of the 6 computers I have in my house for me and my imaginary wife.
I also have a massive collection of ad blocking software which causes my computer to run like the infected spawn of a Symantec Trial Edition.
Not really, I just ignore adverts.
BUPA isn't that expensive
we're not losing a future Einstein here are we
this will just be some media twats wanting some internet like they have at home for 15 quid which won't be cost effective to install
Meanwhile the grown ups having 1Gb bearers put in elsewhere are having no problems at all
banks used to have vaults and store lots of money on site, they accepted that they would get burgled from time to time and had insurance to cover it
As the insurance got more expensive they realised that the bank vault was not the best place to store the money so now if you go in to a high street bank they have far less money
When will we realise that connected computers are inevitably going to get hacked and start working out better places to store our personal data
I think the movie you are referring to is Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
The fifth circle of hell is taking sunrise registrations from domain prospectors as well as SEO experts and people who write pointless clickbait articles.
You guys fall for this nonsense debate every time. You even get all meta and argue about if you are having the debate.
There is nothing to say about Capita that hasn't already been said.
But it won't stop the El Reg commenttards.
The very fact that they shortened the Year 2000 problem to the Y2k problem is a crushing example of the sort of laziness in Information Technology that caused the problem in the first place.
a use case for v6
a couple of decades ago the idea of more x files would appeal - it was the right time then with Roswell conspiracy belief at a high point. Now it will just be a sad swan song to unfulfilled careers
have not had a desktop in the house for 8 years and not had windows since xp
But everyone is different
My Chief Futurologist says that this is rubbish.
The only thing these people can predict is their invoice.
so 0.05 DeLoriens?
I ditched my playbook when I ditched my blackberry about 2 years ago. Now I have a 6 and there is nothing I want to do on a tablet that I can't do on the 6.
it's open source so it is more secure than closed source security through obscurity bloat ware because anyone can inspect the source code and submit fixes
Or at least that's what I was told
People who use the word code as a verb are just trying to hide the fact that they are not programmers and at best use scripting languages and at worst markup.
Server guy are you?
Can't just make these patents public, gotta have a company that exists just to collect the patent tax. This served well to reduce competition. Land of the free eschews the free market yet again.
Surely every movie with Josh Rogan in it should be considered an act of terrorism. Meanwhile the USA has been looking for an excuse to have a legitimate pop at NORK so maybe this is their excuse. Like hunting a Saudi in Pakistan was their excuse to invade Afghan and hunting WMDs that existed purely in their imagination was an excuse to invade Iraq.
sure you do
I work with new technology and I fear change
my slackware gaming rig is running my nat with iptables and zone alarm pro and I have 14 different embedded devices all behind sonicwall hardware firewalls so I don't see the problem.
Mainly because I lack empathy and don't see that there are people for whom computing is a means to and end rather than the meaning of existence.
Those numbers and letters are just a hex representation of the underlying binary. You know that right? The addresses have gone from 32 bit to 128 bit so it is largely trivial to keep the same last 32 bits and add a prefix if that is how you want to do your migration.
Folks get all scared of v6 but it isn't really as bad as it seems.
In a real shop they know far more about you than most online retailers do. They know your lifestyle, what you eat, when you eat it and even what aisle you linger in longest. They know all about your wife, your kids and the packet of rubbers you bought on that business trip. Real shops know how fickle your are or how loyal to a brand and what sort of marketing works to make your change your mind. Etailers still have a lot to learn.
If you don't like this wear a mask, pay cash and definitely don't bring your cellphone shopping.
The customer is always right. Mainly because they will tell their version of events to some senior manager who will overrule your boss.
The sales team favourite is "without this we are losing sales"
USA - greatest threat to freedom in the modern world
Narcissistic wankers are exactly what a company needs to get the most work out of the little drones like you.
historically interesting - thel GCHQ link in the story is pretty lame though
