Brand names are tricky
When I first saw the name "Yahoo" I laughed, but look at it now.

Well you can piss right off - I know the start of a Vogon poem when I see one.
Top boffins never retire, they just go off the payroll:- http://www.dailytarheel.com/article/2016/03/founding-uncs-computer-science-department-was-an-experiment-but-it-paid-off-for-fred-brooks
Yup, you only have to look at file formats to see how that pans out. I have 20 to 25 year old CAD drawings here with no software to read them anymore (Looking at you, Autodesk). The things we made from the drawings are still in service and will be for some time.
In years gone by every time I did a PLC program I kept a hardcopy printout - they survived longer than the equipment to do the programming and associated tapes.
. why didn't they just re-run it with a better speaker?
Thanks for reaching out.
But humans don't always react according to their training and are often influenced by "lubrication" to do the wrong or unsafe thing. I would expect that the machine is programmed to "fail safe", however inconvenient it may seem at the time. Fascinating to see how this develops and how much effort is put into coping with unexpected inputs compared to making the thing go.
And when it doesn't work, we apply the WHIP (what haven't I pressed?)
. . but I bet they tip well.
We like you too. How's your sense of humour?
Even better launch a game - take a picture of a car registration with your phone, check against DVLA database and if it comes back "no tax" or wrong model/colour etc then automatically report location and time to local enforcement. I could have field day in the local multi-storey. Sort of real world pokemon.
Ah the old Ford takeaway - my mate had one that I could open with a Morris Ital key.
"The file format that's used by Windows Journal (Journal Note File, or JNT) has been demonstrated to be susceptible to many security exploits. Therefore, Windows Journal will be removed from all versions of Microsoft Windows soon."
Same here - all connection issues at home are down to "that dodgy wi-fi" or me.
With regard to Zen, they get top marks from me for reliability over many years.
or walky talkys as we used to call them.
July 19th - the day the ice age ended:-
. . . is pay for use, not per licence or per install. That's real use - a better analogy would be renting an aircraft - I pay for flight hours not hanger hours, that way we can control the costs and be more flexible with workloads. Small businesses need to know the costs, that's why they often still use forms of HP (hire purchase). I know some suppliers do this already but not enough and I know this is not so good for the supplier, but they can aggregate etc. Innovate or die.
As an aside, we dumped Microsoft for all business/office software some years ago partly due to fears of an audit - the terms were so arcane and obscure we felt it was impossible to prove compliance unless starting again - so we did!
"Could we please have some sackings."
It was a long time ago.
People move around.
Just rebrand it data.care - sorted.
It would be more viable as "Europe" rather than "EU" - over time allowing more countries to join as they like (think Eurovision with less noise).
All you have to do is ask.
You might not get where you want to go straight away, but the chat will be entertaining.
GPS works fine, but google doesn't yet know everything - try finding "Thovnock" on a map.
. . with a roladex and a filofax.
" . . will probably be incompatible when they release a new version."
Which is why the description includes "ephemeral" ("Short lived, transitory" according to my dictionary). We've been warned.
I'd buy .head
It was on a recent UK TV program (Horizon?). I seem to recall the tests in Germany did measure some thrust. Unfortunately when they rotated the thing 90 degrees, the thrust stayed in the same direction! So obviously it's an anti-gravity machine :-)
"proper risk assesment"
As per UK HSE rules, the fact that the accident happened is proof that the risk assessment or associated control measures were not adequate. The court case is therefore to apportion blame and penalties.
Brothers and sisters!
Pump up the volume
Pump that beam
Agree - I had the same thought - blink and you miss it, no way to stop.
"Eat lead, suckers"
Many water companies who abstract ground water (like ST) use superchlorination - they add a lot of chlorine to guarantee to kill any bugs then reduce the chlorine levels before it hits supply, without needing an intermediate tank/reservoir - it goes straight down the pipe. A mechanical/electrical failure at any point in the dosing system could allow high chlorine levels to get through to supply without the system getting hacked.
1. It was Usain Boat (also brilliant)
2. My serious vote was for Eric Melrose Brown (who also explored the limits of man and machine).
You remind me of Mr Barrowclough:- "I think you're being a bit harsh on a very well meaning body of men". And Eadon of course.
I like to think that the pilots all carry a paper clip to be unfolded in an emergency.
. . . and one of the judges is Port of Tyne Director of corporate affairs.
More of a crawl in my world.
Good luck with that - LTD = limited liability and they probably already have the successor up and running. Prodial never filed any accounts it was that new.
I'm amazed - telemetry going one way I can understand, but remote control means something else entirely - "the key is under the mat" security again.
Well said. As Mr Brooks says :- "plan to throw one away, you will anyway"
. . they are wanting to promote bitcoin etc. (Using the card providers as a threat that is).
Some years ago one of my kids persuaded a fellow pupil during an IT class to flick the little red switch on the back of his computer from 230 to 110 "to make it go better". Cue flash bang and a bill to the parents of the little darling for £lots.
I think they used a lot of glue shortly after that.
Do not try this yourself.
I like the idea but it is too simplistic. Even a humble SME could be owned by another company, and another etc. Using different countries with different legal/tax systems. That is the problem and why "tax havens" exist.
. . as the soonest time they can get me an engineer to visit is 4 WEEKS. Connection very intermittent, exhausted all on line tests etc . . .
They claimed it was because they were so busy with new customers. I tried not to laugh.
Patience now running thin, but as has been pointed out above, all the cheap operators have a reputation as bad as each other.
"How do you keep the EOL systems from getting pwned while still being useful for your business?"
Airgaps for 3,
no gui for 2 (custom screen),
firewall + careful user for 1,
. . . and sticking with Win 7 because legacy programs, simplicity, training, compatibility. Of course we also still have Win 2000, NT and XP in use for specific purposes, why would I want to add another to the mix until I have to?
Would be a good place to start if you don't already use it and the latest version (2015) is now much more IT friendly.
Same week he appears in "Big Bang Theory" and then lands a rocket. I wonder what else is on his bucket list that we don't know about?
