Re: How many hours wasted?
quicker than putting OS/2 Warp on, then the Windows, then Lotus Smartsuite. I do miss the user manuals though.
Port Win 3.11 to ARM and I'd still use it on a tablet/tv key. It wasn't that bad at the time.
shut in and left completely isolated for up to three months
"chemical toilets for when the base was closed to save precious water, and worst of all, cardboard coffins for those who didn’t make it"
The only flaw is that most of them wouldn't attend.
How about Google?
Remind people what search engines looked like...
I find its navigation smoother (less of the map wriggling about and 'route recalculation warnings') than OSMand though they generally get the same answer
End of the last Ice Age == Population explosion
Warmer weather == less clothes, more rain==wet t-shirts and while I'm not suggesting that monetary prostitution was involved in cave man days, the trade of sex for food (in the absence of gender frameworks, or condoms) may have been a contributing factor.
Yaba daba doo!
Re: 98% ?
or at least should be able to get most of the blueprints for a future time machine which is.
Why bother to post the details in the first place?
Since they could see they were going to take them down later?
Re: Hate speech not the best indicator
Yes, population pressure, youth unemployment, economic collapse, then a tipping point when a scapegoat is found - the usual; purges don't have to be ethnically based, they can be religious or political and words shift to take on new meanings.
Re: It's whether the degree is *hard* or *soft*
I'd love to study 'Harry Potter and Ethical Hacking', presumably it means sneaking into the client office under an invisibility cloak instead of having someone hold the door while you juggle a mobile phone and a coffee in front of your photoshopped ID and then shoving your wand into the usb port of the closest unlocked machine.
EasyJet maybe, Ryanair aren't a UK company.
Re: "...required for safe and effective weapons delivery." - RAF
I'll go with b) since I can't imagine any effective weapon being safe for the person it's delivered to
Let's not confuse expectations with requirements
This article is worth it for the comments.
I agree customer expectations have been rising (and are partially met in most cases by improving availability solutions) but the difference between a qualified requirement and an expectation is whether someone is willing to pay to get it done.
Clouds sound good, just get SLA's on performance, security, disaster recovery (what's that, you've only one cloud site, you don't have anywhere to recover it to, you'd take months to move the data?)

How many bitchslaps to the thump?
I didn't know Oracle made storage
I'm not trolling, this is genuine ignorance. I guess that means their marketing is letting the side down.

Re: Prison Mainframe?
We sentence you to 5 years hard COBOL
It is harder to get flavour at lower alcohol levels, which is why a lot of wines have been creeping up in strength but a nice red should be able to cope at 12% and a nice white at 10%, otherwise you may as well sling oak chips in the barrel and top it up to 15% to impress the critics whose tongues have been pickled.
Ho ho ho

There can't be much to do in North Carolina, can there?

Bring back the Vampire Tap!
That was the only fun part of networking.
BFG = Artillery
I believe armies even have specialists in operating those big fucking guns.
Re: Wan... oops I mean Bankers
I wear a suit when I visit a customer who wears a suit, dress down when my customer does because they are paying me (indirectly) and I want to work smoothly with them but an investor is a different story, surely the respect you show should be in relation to how much you want their money - if they're willing to capitalise Facebook to the tune of USD45Bilion then how much more do they need him than he needs them? He could probably have come to meetings wearing fluffy bunny slippers and a mickey mouse T-shirt and still had them begging him to let them invest.
of whose dollars?
Fair F**ks, Lads
They actually got something into orbit. That's not easy.
Wouldn't they learn more if they send a couple? the space shuttle astronauts never published their findings on zero G sex.

That's not how you pronounce it

Re: More bad "design" from Apple
I recently (for no good reason) stuck a new OS on my old IBM Thinkpad 240x. Every single part of it is designed for access to Field Replaceable Units like memory, battery, hard drive, while the outside is lined with ports (USB, PCMCIA, modem, serial, parallel, IR, floppy, sound). It's certainly a different design paradigm, but depends on how you use your toys. I'd imagine someone buying a MacBook isn't going to want to tinker with it very often or keep it 15 years.
No, the _other_ kind of sucking
Re: Its depends on your age..
Back in the 70's I was watching the old ones on TV before I got to see new ones in the Cinema.
Although it's that scene with Goldfinger controlling the industrial laser which comes to my mind whenever an ad for laser hair removal appears on TV...
I assume there'll be a follow on poll for best Bond film?
OHMSS is my personal favourite, which influences my choice of Bond, Casino Royale (the Craig one, not the Niven/Allen one) my second choice, probably because both stay pretty close to the books and don't go nuts on the special effects and From Russia With Love, my third.
Get me started on the worst three...
