It's like comparing craps.
Never had the displeasure of talk-talk, but had both sky and virgin, and saying one's customer service is better than the other is like saying one crap is less stinky that the another. Could be true, but it's still crap at the end of the day.
The hardware still works.
But windows 10 won't run on it. Windows 10 upgrade is not "free" if you have to buy all new hardware.
So until the hardware dies XP will still be a thing.
I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Re: No, that makes things easier
Exactly, sounds like: "not a problem, won't fix" to me.
Not going to save them.
Who the fuck buys HP now days anyway? God awful software and drivers, expensive ink.. Nuff said.
Just google Geekbeat iosafe, and its the first link.
Still, suppose proof is in replication of the experiment....
One question not covered
Why take down GitHub, What reasons for temporarily disrupting the service?
Nothing to the taxman?
Um, No, the shareholder's will have to pay something,well, most of them.
Re: Destroyed to upgrade?
*"upgrade to an Android Model or downgrade and lose any tech credibility with a Windows Phone"
there fixed it for you.
Re: Come on 150GB a month
I call bull on this. Between crash plan, netflix and twit.tv I use 250Gb to 300Gb a month.
Typically if the wife or I work at home we use 8 to 16 Gb between us streaming tv, while working over vpns.
So, yes, p2p may be a cause, but it's not all heavy users that use it.
For me, Netflix is a replacement, for paying for virgin or sky.
So now when i am too busy to watch netflix's admittedly limited content, its not as bad as paying £50-£60 for TV that I just wasn't watching.
However, there is still plenty on netflix I want to watch, the daughter loves netflix for kids, and I can be anywhere and watch it. No slingbox needed.
Re: Pay for my own device, and have them lock it down???
Agree, totally unacceptable. And imagine if the company wiped it.
Luckily, the likes of GOOD and Checkpoint (and more I am sure) will just control and lock down an app on the device rather than the whole device.
Sale of goods and services act?
Anyone? What is bought at point of sale is binding.
He logged on to devices which were still using default passwords for the most part. The criminals here are the morons who configured the devices and computers he "hacked"
Seconded. Absolute Fudged bull.
Sorry, What is so "moral" about paying taxes? As far as I am concerned if a penny of tax money goes to trade unions or to the anti-democratic EU, then paying taxes is the immoral thing.
Re: School I work at took another approach.
Such an easy thing to bypass.
echo . >> [offending file]
and the hash check wont match the blacklist.
"The web server behind the IP address corresponding to the domain - 220.127.116.11 - was also responding slowly. "
Anybody who used this "award winning" site daily knows that this is definitely situation normal, Domain snafu or not.
Now that the forum is back up and running, yea, this was going to be my point, surely the few minutes at 3-4G during launch is more likely to compress the eye, than the micro gravity enviroment?
Thinking of all the times I have called certain Politicians complete cnuts on twitter....
Mute button on TV remote = WIN.
I am past caring what the NoTW did or did not do. I am just glad that that bunch of tards are no longer around to make someone do something then report it as if it was news. Real undercover work is reporting on what happens with out some pushy left wing anti royal [see you next Tuesday] steering the events so a crap paper could sell a few sheets.
The Barman says, "sorry, we don't serve neutrinos here."
A neutrino walks into a bar.
You have missed the fucking point!
Of course the climate is changing. Its always changing.
The question that is in doubt is whether its man made, or if there is a damned thing man can do about it.
Now remove that fucking unfounded climate skeptics dealt a blow line, cause that is total bullshit.
Anyone want to help out?
By boycotting Sony?
Bitcoin mining doesnt work like that.
If a botnet started to mine, the difficulty of generating a bitcoin hash would simply increase.
See http://bitcoin.sipa.be/ for the history on how computation in the network has increased along with the difficulty.
Satan will be ice skating to work
Before I buy Sony again. From root kit's on CD's to puerile legal actions, they are just another scum company.
It's not a public service
Nobody is forcing the use of google. Its not a public server!
So what right do the EU have to tell google how to run their business? From an end user point of view if I don't like the results google give me, I will use something else. (not bing though because that really is sh*t) . There is plenty of alternative search engines. And one result I hate is FSM damned link farms like this sh*tty UK company undoubtedly is.
So for FSM's sake tell the EU to f*ck off.
The company that killed the EV-1
expects me to buy this piece of crap? Not if they paid me.
Sony are the new evil empire.
And I am right there with the move to boycott Sony.
The really sick thing is that the games and entertainment industry's will use this "research" as an excuse to further inflate their overprice wares.
So instead of lowering the price so that there is less excuse to pirate, the greed principle will just escalate with high prices, and pressure on the governments to come down harder on pirates.
What a difference
Nice to see that the UK Gov is not just rubber stamping all EU BS into UK law, unlike those lying labour twats did for 13 years.
How to deal with non-IT storys.
To the people who seem to read this site just for the IT angle, here is a way to deal with stories that may not have an IT angle...
Once you realise that it is a non-IT story, STOP READING IT, and stop posting the same old lame comments about "Where's the IT angle?"
Left them for BE over 2 years ago because of similar lack of respect for a 8 year loyal customer. Never looked back.
If only it applied here
After write my MP about the police attempting to get data out of google without a court warrant, I have found out that the data protection act has get out clauses for them, and they are well within their rights to order companies to hand over our data provided that have made up the just cause. So show you want the data protection act is good for.
Depends on who you get
Checkpoint Software have been using live chat for years. And as my company resells them, I have to talk to them. Live chat is my preferred method, but sometimes you get a jobs worth, and sometimes you get absolute brilliant customer service.
Luckily after most chats they offer you a chance to rate the service, and I am always honest. Don't know what notice they take of the feedback, but it does help to praise the good, and vent about the bad.
Its still a bit early
How long did the switch over from Black and White to colour take? I know that some of my older relitives still have their old B&W tv in the spare room.
Its only been recently that HD tellys have come down in price enough for the everyman. But very few people are going to replace a few year old working TV with the HD version.
And 3d will be the same. Once the price come down enough, people will buy it as a "hardware refresh" but not while their HD one is working.
So you posted you pro american pro police state BS anonymously?
what are hiding?
It's all bull.
This is so obviously a persecution and not a prosecution. Free Assange! and Boycott Sweden for being the USA's lapdog.
But Piers Moron Morgan
Is a complete and utter turd! Everyone should be shouting, tweeting, and posting on what a c**t Piers is.
Havn't you heard?
About the word?
Bird is the word!
Better than silence.
Interpol show themselves to be just as corrupt as any national police force. Sickening.
Gordon Browns intervention is guaranteed to do the opposite of help. Don't they know of the curse?
Police will censor the truth about their corruption
Just like with section 44 of the terrorism act, and section 5 of the public order act, the police (scum that they are) will just use the new powers to harass people, and stop public criticise of them, just like they do now.
If they start running out of money, they will just sell an "upgraded" browser and phase out the support for the old one.
I reset my alarm...
And it still failed to go off this morning!
I knew of the bug, so I changed the time by a few minutes of my wake up alarm. Still bloody failed.
Luckly my daughter is still on BST and woke up for her 8:30am feed at 7:30... so was only running 30 minutes late.
Now how to reset my daughter to GMT... Tricky.
I can tell you what is happening... the results from bing! are so bad people are loading up google and getting some search results that are actually relevant to the search term.
Although bing does have one good feature... searching Microsoft related terms sometimes works better than google. Sometimes...
