O2 kicks out Ericsson server for breaking its network

"...you'd splash out £10million on new kit on a single outage. Please, do NOT ever work for us."

Please don't ever apply for a job at a decent IT company as you clearly can't read (there was more than one outage) and you don't understand the scale of the problem.

Huawei - Maybe they caused the outage to get their kit into O2! ;)

DDR 4 sets the pace for fast memory

Less Power? Really?

I would have accepted this until the downside was mentioned...all slots needs to be filled. OK, not a problem is you have a server maxed out on memory but if this is not the case then power consumption is going to go up.

Lets say there are eight memory slots in the server and four are used up. 8GB in each slot, 1.5v per DIMM. That's 6v. With DDR4, this will use 9.6v whatever the capacity you choose.

Will the looters 'loose' their benefits?

@trafalgar

I never said they would become soldiers, the military camp is for them to learn respect. 6 months in a camp and there's no way you'll be insulting the office to his face. 20 pushups? More like 200 and there wouldn't be any beatings but you will be running 10/20 miles, cleaning up shit or scrubbing the entire courtyard clean with a toothbrush.

Looters Debt

Each and every one of them should have to repay the damages caused, I doubt anyone would disagree with this (unless you're one of them).

"..but they don't have any money to repay it"

Get a job. If you don't get a job, the government will give you one doing shitty jobs that pay even less and you will be forced to do it.

If you think you can't be bothered to do that even, you'll lose your home and basic benefits. So you'll think you'll live on the streets after that? Think again. You'll find yourself in a military style camp for 6 months where you WILL learn respect.

Something like the above needs to be introduced to stop these lazy bastards from living off the state.

I'm used to these guys making top notch games and I cannot believe after so many years that this was even allowed to be released, for a premium price as well. If I had tried the game first, I would not pay more than £4.99 for it.

Microsoft closes door on 64-bit development for Office 2011

@yossarianuk

Another MS basher/Linux fanboy! Welcome :)

So you blame Microsoft 100% eh? You do know that the hardware wasn't around until 2003 to even support 64 bit desktops? I'm talking mainstream of course, no need to flame for the specialist hardware that was around.

Firefox? You seem to have missed the 64bit version of Internet Explorer that is available. 64bit version of Flash? Do you really think you'll really notice any difference with that? Thought not.

EC drops Microsoft browser probe

M 6
FAIL

@Rasczak

Microsoft doesn't support it on the Linux, Unix or Mac (any more). Do you care? If so find another browser.

It. is. still. free.

People are just whining because they have an OS with parts that they don't want, so that means they shouldn't have to pay for it. BS. I don't want wireless support on my desktop as I'll never use it but it's part of the emcompassing package of Windows that I myself AGREED to pay for. Do I whine about having to pay for it? No. If I didn't like it, I would choose something else.

Lewis,

No one needs to purchase IE, it's free. Your analogy is completely wrong.

It's more like walking in to a shop, them giving you a voucher for free shampoo of their own brand (why would give another brand away for free eh??). If you don't like it, don't friggin use it.

Kick Neelie Kroes OUT

I cannot begin to understand how much time and money this woman has wasted with Microsoft and forcing them to allow a choice of browsers

I quote Neelie - "It is as if you went to the supermarket and they only offered you one brand of shampoo on the shelf, and all the other choices are hidden out the back and not everyone knows about them," "What we are saying today is that all the brands should be on the shelf."

In that context, what about Aldi or Lidl who only offer their own branded goods. If you don't like what you see on the shelf, shop elsewhere you silly b****.

I do not see her going after Apple to make them offer competing browsers on a Mac, why is this so? I would say this should be next on her list but she'll only be wasting even more of our money.

Fail - because nothing is more FAIL than Mrs Kroes

Windows 7 - the Reg reader verdict

M 6
Thumb Up

Experiences so far

I've been using Windows 7 for about two months now and it's all working fine but I have noticed two noticeable issues.

1. If you leave IE8 open for a few days with many tabs open, it seems to cause problems which can be noticed when going to the Tools menu. The 'internet options' button is dimmed out and other strange problems begin to occur. May happen on any OS with IE8 but as it comes with it, it should be mentioned.

2. Copying large files, roughly 500Mb or more, across a network causes the system to slow to a crawl, the cursor jumps across the screen instead of a smooth motion and this continues until the copy has finished.

Other than that...it's been great!

BIND crash bug prompts urgent update call

RE: Anonymous Stupid Coward

The acronym BIND was derived from its first domain use, Berkeley Internet Name Domain, and the server software being the "Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) Server". It was not, as is sometimes assumed, Berkeley Internet Name Daemon
