Fixing an airborne aircraft
No-one has ever built an aircraft that cannot be landed and maintained. If your IT is in this state you only have yourself to blame. Plenty of other IT services have planned maintenance downtime. If yours does not have this feature you should resign and let someone competent take over.
Interesting that the penguin is centre stage
but the laptops for the other OSes are open. Maybe Tux's lappy is like the Arc of the Covenant, the contents are so spiffy you will burst into flames if you look upon them.
Re: Typical useless Microsoft product
Can't speak for the android or chrome desktops but I've been using remote desktops on Linux for about twenty years, there were occasional glitches in keyboard input but zero problems in the last decade.
Not what I'd call a troll.
Top bars are bollox
Fitts law is OK when it comes to being easy to whiz to the file menu, but it doesn't address the larger distance who have to go to get the pointer back to where it started after you have done the file/thing menu pick.
Sidebars are much better for saving vertical space. WIndows 7 and KDE do the rather well, mate is OK ish, xfce and gnome were rubbish last time I checked.
Window resizing - meh, been in most X window managers for over twenty years.
Unbelievable lack of stregic planning
These organizations should have a plan for what to do when WIndows 8 support ceases.
Maybe now is a good time to commit crime in London (and don't declare the income to the tax man).
Re: Tip toe through the cat crap
I'd like to stand up for the hard working cats of this country and object to the word lazy. But I can't because that's what cats are. Calling a cat lazy is like calling a cloud wet, it just shows that you don't know much about them.
I don't know how slippery it is. I have a cat and it poos next door. If you don't want cat poo, get a cat. Cheap to run and will remove the mice from your house.
Lord Voldermort or Darth Vader for mediator
After the first few bureaucrats go up in smoke the rest should get on nicely.

Fuck you Cameron you disloyal twat.
I see that your computer is infected with the leet virus. Good luck.
Wow this new monitor is the coolest
It doesn't even need a power cable. IT rules yay!!!
No, please don't. We have enough stuff being treated as terrorism already. Terrorism usually ends up with people dying not just inconvenienced.
With that amount of diesel..
they could run a garage, would solve the problem of the diesel going off
thus reading should be noticeably faster than random writing
I think you mean random writing will be noticeably slower than a glacier.
SMR is the technique used by helical scan tape drives (DDS) to pack the tracks closer than the width of the write head. They also suffer from terrible performance if you don't keep them streaming while writing.
Wonder if it can recognize an evil glint in the eye and a box of matches and shut off the petrol pump.
I could get eight on a rack that size.
Probably right verdict
after all how many Efifiom Edem's are there?
Yikes, you've stumbled into...
a terrorist cell. No way of tracking down letters from those typewriters. The bedding and gas mask is a hint as to what they were planning. Please leave the office, lock the door and report to your nearest police station.
Re: Bye ChromeOS
Is it fanless? From the small vents it looks like it's fan cooled.
Keep clear of this in the data center
Looks like that front vertical section goes in and out and would probably go right across the alleyway. And it all goes into one bluray drive, hope that's a ruggedized one that can handle the load cycles.
Re: How about...
We already do that. It's called VAT.
Re: How on earth can this happen ...
Except she has crossed the line and lost credibility. Accusing Google of being evil is ridiculous. Accusing others of immoral behaviour shows she is grandstanding as tax is not a moral issue.
Re: Somehow I don't think so.....
Wessex is an idea, not a place. Just saying.
Fishnapper was right
"Tupac actually died" a few days after being returned. But that's OK, Mozilla got some fish back and they can now replace them. What's the half-life of a Tupac?
Suggest they get an aquarium screensaver.
Re: Its a mess on Intel "et al's" own making...
Like you say, you don't need a more powerful PC and you don't want another five 200W PC's in your home. But you might want twenty 0.1W devices controlling your light, heat and kitchen appliances. Microsoft have dropped the ball on this progress hence the shuttered factory, maybe Google can pick up the baton (Intel have an ARM license)
Re: Excellent news
Cutting the death rate of children tends to suppress the birth rate. This has happened n numerous countries at numerous times so no need to worry about the African population exploding just because Malaria is eradicated.
Re: >> Mr Dabbs, do I spot a little bit of green eyed monster?!
Yikes, I though it was called the one-eyed trouser snake. If yours is a green eyed monster you should see a doctor
"and adds a fraction of a delay (a folder opens in a couple of seconds) to your workflow"
Delays are atomic. You can have a fraction of a second or a short delay. This sounds like a long delay.

Re: Might not have an IT angle, but, you can bet 5 and 6 and James Bond would be impressed...
Bond: I must be dreaming.
They had to, the photographer is a reflectopornophile as you'll see if you zoom in on the reflection in the glass vase on the window.
Is probably the change that would solve the most bad things but how likely is it that the US legal system will change?

github for some, bitchhub for others, www.bitchhub.com is availiable (for about 30 seconds)

Has this been tested on chrome-plated targets?
Reminds me of A Clockwork Orange, just need something to keep the eyes open.
All companies use email so they're all internet businesses now. Except that they all have workers that commute by car so they're in the transport sector. Oh. and they have coffee machines so they're in the agricultural sector.

Bless you, hope the cold gets better.
And thanks for the idea, I'm getting "serious weirdo" put on my CV.
Re: Don't forget one-time-pads are secure
Simply install another link in parallel and send the OTP data from the generator to the other end. Don't forget to subtract 17 from the numbers to prevent snooping.
All fine and dandy until the screensaver kicks in
Then communicator/lync tells everyone you've gone home.
That's why you need http://movemouse.codeplex.com running before you flee.
Who cares? It's made of graphene. Guaranteed to get you laid.
Re: Expert on womens' genitalia
I suspect Ms. Breswell was being modest.
Anyone viewing porn will have seen hundreds of examples of both forms of undercarriage so, yes, male readers of the register probably can talk about the length and expertise of other men's penises if they could drag their concentration away from the screen.
As for recognizing your own bits, I wouldn't even know my own hands unless the picture showed the chainsaw scar on my right palm.
I always breath through my mouth when needing large quantities of oxygen.
Re: Which London?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_(disambiguation) has 13 other Londons
These tiny speakers have no base at all. Normal speakers have to have some base otherwise they would not stand up. Try standing an ipad up and it will fall over due to lack of base.
Why the requirement for smart?
Surely they're looking for actors who can play any intelligence level?
Don't tell Anon
but each of those masks has an embedded RFID tag.
Re: Once Twitter goes public.
Running at a loss is a bad idea in any century.
Re: Wouldn't a vacuum be better?
Yes, right up until the point you try to move the heads from the park position to the platters.
Re: If only someone had told them..
The front legs take about 50% more weight than the rear so maybe they race without rear shoes.
Re: Good advice
So you're saying let them have phones and tablets and just tell them stories to keep them safe? My kid is stuck with the family PC until after primary school. My kid has been trained to lie about age/sex/location as routine. Other kids may have phones etc. but they usually also have crap parenting too.
> 4,000 per cent as dangerous as the World Health Organization's recommendation
So those things walking around are zombies or the WHO recommendation is not particularly dangerous. "4000% of the WHO recom.." is what you meant. Sticking extra words in a sentence might make you hit your article length target but it can mess up your message.
