Yes, yes I have
Here's a list for you.
And I am not ashamed.
I enjoy Phil Collins' music.
I stuck with the unlimited tethering, though it _isn't_ covered when abroad using their feel at home thing iirc. But I do get the free data abroad, which is fantastic for using google maps when on a business trip.
I just wish there was a way to not get the thousands of texts and minutes of calls I pay for but never use. I'll be honest, my phone is a pocket internet terminal that people try and call me on sometimes. I am not a fan of phone calls.
Though the unlimited is pretty good on three, I discovered prodcasts about a decade after the rest of humanity and pullded down about 20 gigs of them last month. It's nice not to have to care about the download limits.
You're saying they need a SRiMech?
And probably a flame thrower.
Or we can repurpose Sir Killalot as a delivery boy. No one's going to get in his way, or at least not for long.
My favourite part about working like a Ninja is the uncertainty if I really existed in Tokogawa Era Japan at all.
I mean I might've only been born only 30 or so years ago... or that could just be what I _want_ you to think.
Which is really useful come pay review time.
"You can't prove I wasn't working on this project about a century and a bit ago, so give me a pay rise."
But I did enjoy his columns, because it's good to read things you disagree with, makes you think.
Please tell me this isn't the replacement, because I spent more time teasing the meaning out from the buzzwords than working out what the article was about. (Turns out you can replace the article with the headline and get all the same information near enough).
That's exceptionally harsh for a minor.
Teenagers can be amazingly stupid in some ways, what he needs is not punishment for retribution's sake. If he is indeed some mastermind expert blackhat then he needs corralling and training up as a white hat. There needs to be some element of punishment to deter him, but ideally you'd harness such a talent rather than waste it.
The point of the justice system should be rehabilitiation where possible, not retribution. If some kids did trash my place, it'd be much better that they were put to work fixing it than costing me money in prison on top of the cost of putting my gaff right.
Did we ever make a full analytical engine? I know they recreated the difference engine, but the analytical engine was orders of magnitude larger.
We can probably simulate one though, they could test on that.
If the debris is that small, then they're not much of a problem, as they will abrade rapidly and just make some pretty shooting stars.
Larger ones are more likely (I'm guessing they've done the maths on this and the various momentum calculations, NASA know their stuff) to not get the energy from the impact to deviate from their orbit enough to hit the Earth.
All this is just extrapolation from first principles, I've not actually looked into the proposal, but I did do astroboffinery at university some decade and change ago. So read into it what you will.
JoeUser, as a long time troll and agitator, can I congratulate you on a frankly beautifully crafted move.
It's one line and it's... well it's beautiful. You even put the troll face on and still it went and went.
You mad, beautiful, crazy, magnificent person you. I doff my hat. I doff it and I bow.
the Higgs bosun was in the fo'c'sle all along.
Arr, that be no mystery nor conundrum.
I'm all about the Mate on Ubuntu.
Mainly because our office uses Ubuntu as our default Linux image, and I still hate Unity, espceially it's Alt-Tab behaviour where it groups multiple windows of the same program.
Oh and pinned programs, I can't stand those either. I don't want to see programs I'm not running on the task bar, because I'm not running them. I especially don't want them masquerading as a running program.
I have tried to get used to Unity, but it's just so full of little things like that that grate on me.
In Cambridge today it looks like it was out for an hour or so, I had data on the train in to the office, lost it during my stand up and tea break, but it's back now.
Is it really worth it?
Traditionally Flickr's own upload function has been made of spit and bale wire and liable to fall apart if you looked at the web page wrong. I've been using jUploadr for years for Flickr (and not noticing any problems recently for what it's worth), but is the new one actually worth it?
I've been a paying customer of Flickr for years, but I'm so close to cancelling. It's a nice way to show people certain albums, but it doesn't offer me anything more with "Pro" than I'd get on the free plan any more, and I find myself using Google photos more and more anyway, because its sharing tools are better.
I don't see the issue.
They're not passwords for any system in the office that I know of, but it's important that any potential corporate espionage leaves the spy feeling fulfilled.
What can I say, I'm a people person.
Yes, I have used chrome to cast exactly once since I got a Chromecast last year and I've used my Chromecast most days. It's a Netflix and iPlayer stick for me.
Sometimes I cast my tablet screen (because the flickr app doesn't cast), but generally it just makes my dumb panel Bravia from before the dawn of time smart enough for a bit of Stargate or University Challenge on demand.
Joerg: what was nonsense that I wrote?
If I have something wrong with the licensing terms and verifiability of the tools I use, I'd like to know. So if you can enlighten me as to the error, I'd be grateful.
You could drop fake MD5's around, but if you've gone to the trouble of checking an MD5, you'd do it from the Google site.
I doubt that Google would accept a pull request from a random contributor to their repo without at least a cursory audit. You could, however, just host a mirror with a compromised binary, most people really won't check.
It was asked if there was any reason the Android IDE couldn't be cracked in the same way. Whether the way is used is not the question asked. It's not an anti-Apple polemic, just an answer to a question.
Android Studio is Apache licensed, so you can see the source. And crucially you can get it from mirrors easily enough and check the MD5.
It's also much smaller, which helps.
Was that the poor guy grew up with the inital and name "T.Insel"
I bet he had hell come Christmas, who does that to their children?
Yeah I'm on a grandfathered all you can eat plan which includes tethering, I just got a new phone and it works with 4G. No upgrade required, except the obvious hardware one.
If you're producing stools that can survive re-entry, see a doctor immediately.
You mustn't have been Wukong hard enough.
They do keep adding new things, my to watch list is growing faster than I can watch it.
They've been especially good in adding 70s kung fu films and anime recently, which has appealed to my interests at least. I don't check the other things they add, but I would be surprised if they weren't adding more things to other categories.
When it evolves, it'll be Butterfree, so open sourced?
Though the sleep powder might be a problem...
My name's thecowking and I am a recovering Pokémon player.
"OK so I've been working on this branch, how do I commit it?"
Because you want a repo for an open source project.
My GPU isn't discreet, it's sodding massive and has leds all over it. Plus my case has a perspex cut out so you can see it glowing.
It is discrete though.
If it's a one time pad, that's exactly true.
The logistics of using a one time pad for every communication are... hard. Especially with the requirement that the pad be of greater length than the data it encodes and the recipient having an idential copy of said pad.
But a one time pad is simple enough to use by hand and unbreakable if used correctly
Roti chani is the breakfast of kings.
Bah! I miss Malaysian food so much, it's high time I looked for a telecommuting job here in the UK and moved to Penang.
That way my pension will go to my wife after I die from terminal food overdose after a couple of years.
Seaquest DSV, my word, that's a blast from the past.
It'd be the same as the Nexus range in that respect. So not an issue really.
It's the manufacturers and networks that are the gatekeepers on most Android phone upgrades.
Surprised at how modern the headline was. After all I was only listening to Hybrid Theory in university. So it can't be that long ago.
Then I realised exactly how long ago it was.
Now I feel old.
Completely unrelated to the article but I felt the need to whine.
I'm expecting some truly spectacular low lying clouds and reflections of Cambridge's street lighting over the fens this week.
Which is the only reason I still have a Yahoo account, because Flickr's not a terrible service, though I suspect it will soon succumb to the general malaise at Yahoo with the random changes they keep making to try and make it into a social network.
So Ubuntu, based in London, is what?
Two of my team are away this week, one's hiking in the Alps and the other is saling in Poland, but you don't see me coming here with my facts and so on to spoil a perfectly good stereotype. Do you? No.
On that note, I hope they have a good pizza place nearby.
They probably have super cow powers.
Offline caching of articles for those of us who commute through the unlinked wilderness.
Or El reg could make 3g 100% coverage in the UK, I'd settle for that too :P
Permissions are network access and to see network interfaces, the application is taking up 8 mb (not including article data, which will vary clearly)
All signed up and logged in, I'd have put the comment in through the app (which is a lot faster and smoother!) but that's apparently not supported yet.
Still, it's a lot faster than the old app.
You and me both.
It's the SD card and the nice big battery that's tempting me, possibly, to not go from the 4 to whatever Google release this year.
That said, if it's a revamp of the Nexus 5, I might be swayed again.
My problem is that the Nexus 4 is still such a good phone that I keep putting off upgrading, because it's still more than good enough.
I've been using the technical preview on my gaming box since it launched and I'll be honest, it's no worse than any other version of Windows and faster than 7 was (which is what I updated from).
I've seen all the stories and failed miserably to find any bugs in every day use. Which as a software tester by trade is a bit of an arse.
Frankly it's been as boringly stable as ubuntu mate is on my laptop.
My nexus 4 has been only charged wirelessly for about 2 years now. I pop it on the charger before I sleep and it has a cover on to prevent slipping (The nexus 4 appears to have achieved a perfectly frictionless back) and it's fine.
So yeah, anecdotal data is anecdotal.
Last time I was in Texas (December last), I had biscuits and gravy.
Airline food was much better.
So was pretty much everything, including McDonalds.
That stuff is sodding awful, like wallpaper paste on sad scones. As for what passes for "sausage" there, the less said the better.
BBQ on the other hand was magnificent.
