Where does this prick live, I've got some innovation right here for him! this type of tom-fuckery is the bane of my working life, and it's always the damn magpies in finance that do it, then they start budget fisting when you want to bang an extra PoE switch to support IP telephony, all because they have spunked the contingent wad on 4g iPhones in a non 4g covered office and tablets that will not run AX.
I'd be pretty disilusioned if...
Dr Wang had no interest in this application of his development.

Already up for you, but if you can see that tank in the article, then you must be unfit for your position, stupid, or incompetent.

Nah, it was the endless stream of selfies which delayed the actual science here...
Re: How many lives
Nope, no stooge. I left a long time ago. The project was badly managed with too many fingers in the pie. What I am saying, which you conveniently gloss over, is how this would've helped the NHS and the nation if it was realised as a fully implemented solution of the original vision.
Did I mention the cost of PACS? yep, I think I already acknowledged the budgeting problems, but the system was good, it worked and saved time.
SCR was good, the only reason it would have sparse info would have been down to the staff that use it, you can't expect a data base to fill it's self!
I smell a know-it-all e-insider goon! (over pampered ex-GP per chance?)
Al you're doing here is backing up my post, if you actually read it properly instead of frothing at the mouth you'll see I refer to all the criticism you level.
Re: How many lives
Plenty of lives were saved by this project, if it had made it to full fruition then many many more would have followed. The problem here was not the product but it's deployment realisation and continued interference from the Government which led to cost and corner cutting of the highest order while still trying to please everyone.
Hospitals which managed to implement a full solution (and anyone that is unenlightened enough to think that a central record is all that this was about, like the author of this poor excuse for journalism, should fuck off and stop making comments until they properly understand the processes in place, or head over to the daily mails' forums) saw waiting lists plummet, responder save rates rocket, cost reductions for baseline services and diagnosis scales well reduced.
Yes it went tits up in a very big way, I am not defending how this was done or the budget spent, but the goals set and achievements made cannot and should not ignored. Simply calling it a waste of time / budget squandering / of no benefit, etc, all off the back of hysteria whipping journalism, such as this, does not do credit to the reform they DID manage to get in place.
Or would you rather we continued wandering about with bits of paper and carrying x-rays beween wards, posting medical records between facilities for those people admitted to A&E when involved in accidents out side of their PCT?
Re: Schultz A lot of frustrated officials
" only stopped him because they're homophobic too"
They stopped him because they had a watch order on him and decided to try to pump him
That doesn't really sound like like homophobic behaviour to me...
What a Cop Out!
Alas, in the cold light of day it seems that old Brucey is just palying Surrogate to the BskyB Bandits. Maybe it was a Setup all along? after all, i always took him for No Body's Fool.
I hope this leaves him Red in the face.
But still lacking.... something....
SR was a nice 12 hours worth of gaming, but there is a slight tedious tide of ad nausium repetition towards the end.
If the narative wasn't as strong, and not helped along by stunning hand drawn environemnts I think I would've given up.
On a side note, the d-cell in my SNES copy of the original died years ago, so my last play through was without saves, leaving very toasty SNES waiting for after a week away with work. So the save function struck a familar chord.
Re: If he's an expert...
Yeah, he totally dropped the ball with that gaffe.
In the centre of Sheffield I get 160 mbs from Dick Branson, quite often more. I've moved house to Killamarsh (10 miles away and the last suburb before rolling hills, and can only get BT toss, still 76mps though, so no major scrote throbbing there. The rents live in a tiny town outside of Matlock with no urban centre for 30 miles in any direction, they still get 36mbps.
Are you sure that everyone realises they actually have to pay top whack subscription to get decent service? some of the figures here seem pretty unbelievable.....
Re: Not sure whether trolling...
Everyone else who is still failing to comprehend the common understanding of Trolling (in our peer group of course) despite links being posted to help you, look at what young Theodore has produced. A classic example. He is not Bullying or rude, but someone is going to take that bait for sure!
I am actually starting to feel like we're approaching a paradox here, A Troll, trolling within trolling....
Not you as well.
I cannot understand this high-jacking of the term Trolls / Trolling. I'd say 99% of the readers on elreg understand the proper use of the term as we are all versed in its application. The context in which you use it, Kelly, is firmly that of the mainstream media (BBC et al) who fail to grasp what it stands for and who happily trot out the internet buzz word of the week without any comprehension of how it has entered common(ish) parlance.
I second that. DDWRT is a godsend for cobbling together infrastructure.
Bill Ray, you are wasted
With titular tongue-twisting talents such as those paraded here, you quite clearly need a job writing headlines for the sun! love it :)
Up until about 4 years ago I used to ride my BMX to work at a BT ops center for shifts at bridge command, much easier to take shortcuts on a bike you can throw around, plus, at 'lunch' time (4am), the nearby skatepark in town was deserted, so fun was to be had.
If I was on the 7am to 7pm shift then I'd get breakfast on the way to work, if on the 7pm to 7am I'd get it on the way home. Never once was I not served and I think I became a bit of a fixture for the staff as I'd get the odd freebe thrown in if they were quiet. This rule must be a recent thing.

Still has one of these, not that she's a technophobe, but she keeps its putrid green bacolite shell hidden behind a curtain and uses a samsung wireless setup through the house. why? She simply likes the bell ring on the old set. Yes, it does still work as well as the day it was made.
Re: Master hacker me @Peter 45
Damn, so you had to do some work then? It's OK mate, we all try to pretend we're not sys admin, but the fact we're here reading el reg is implausible deniability
Ahhh, I see the Koreans have been influenced by our popular Western culture.

AC, look... the field... it's covered with blood!
Nooooo! can't believe I missed this first time around!
Yorkshire Gold Rowandan is the best bag on the market. I must confess that they rarely get used though, as when at home I use a Tea pig with a loose leaf mix of Assam and Lapsang (about 5 to 1 ratio). Both pig and mug filled with water straight off the boil. After 10 seconds the pig is emptied then filled with payload of Tea then water out of the same kettle WITHOUT REBOILING. 6 minutes with a gentle stir at 2, A dash of full fat milk until the tea becomes opaque rewards me with (in my tatses) a perfect brew that cannot be matched.
Unfortunatley, this dabbling has forced me to shun the more ghetto mainstream efforts of using a bag as it all tastes like hogwash in comparason. This has had the terrible consequence of me abandoning Tea at work in favor of a coffee percolator (for which I grind beans for the day freshly every morning) as I simply cannot take the pig to work as the time and faffing involed is simply not workable, also I'm IT operations for a global materials technology firm and if the workshop lads saw me with that I would be lynched!
Re: Don't say I didn't warn you
Somebody set up us the V2!
OMG everyones printing guns and killing each other!!
But not one comment on here mentions the availability of ammunition for said weapons. If you have access to black market ammo, then you have access to weaponry as well. As long as ammo is as controlled as weaponry then I cannot see why anyone making of these is any more dangerous than they were before, because if they can get ammo, then they could purchase guns.
Re: Wait, hasn't anyone told him this:
Sorry, Stevie, but for one, I am not in New York, and if you have voice navigation then simply utter something unintelligible several times over or repeat "advisor" will have the same effect.
Secondly, notice the caveat in my post: 90%? Meaning that I fully understand that some systems are BOFH proofed, but most are not, and to be honest, when I find one that is hardened to my back door intrusions it just makes me try harder.
Wait, hasn't anyone told him this:
Simply hammer # or 0 when you hit the first hit a menu 90% of the time this will plop you straight to a real person, and, quite often if it's a company with several call centres across the globe, it'll drop you to an English one as a default as they are more often than not the nerve centre of things rather than tech support or sales in India.
Re: Isn't this a bad thing for the industry?
Short answer, No.
Long answer, as mentioned a couple of posts up, these numbers are surely caused by poeple buying their first tablet. The PC market will decline marginally, probably to the levels of sale 6 or 7 years ago when there were no alternatives for computing other than a full blown PC. The market for workstations will always be alive, wether it be for home user who actually want to be able to edit documents / manage data / image manipulation / wank over decent size pair or tits, with at least some ease of use or if it's in the workplace where anyone who honestly thinks they will get any sort of productivity out anything other than a workstation, it will not simply be replaced by what is essentially a computing periferal.
Re: Nutritional (Graham)
Perhaps you might have heard then, considering your astute knowledge of this type of thing, that the microbes are not that main problem but the toxins created by said microbes during their digestive processes. Yes, we get some nasties from active 'microbes' (I'm assuming you mean Bacteria) such as Salmonella but as far as toxicology is concerned this is just a drop in a petre dish.
Pasteurisation will only be of any use to stop toxin accumulation by denying a culture establishment in the first place. It does not sure already tainted produce.
So that's the secret ingredient in KFC gravy!
Re: What sort of cretin buys a Amazon Swindle anyway?
@ Mr Fuzzy,
And that the email account from Amazon will convert most text formats and mail it out to your Kindle for no extra charge. I have had no problems with mine and I am not the sort of chap who owns anything produced by Apple, Sony or their ilk. As previously mentioned, Calibre and any text editor makes the Kindle an excellent device.
For an extremely cheap, well designed and thoroughly useful device and supporting services you cannot go wrong with a Kindle, so trolling AC, STFU and GTFO.
I have to say, I have a Note I & a Note II, I am sure the portrate / landscape lag is intentional, those times where you accidenty tilt the phone slightly over its threshold to switch would be a real pain in the backside if it flipped the second it was triggered. I prefer the slight lag for the above reasons. The phone (especially Note II) is blisteringly fast, when you use one ,or an SIII it is apparent that merely fliping views views instanly is far beneath the devices capability, I'm sure this holds true for the SIIII also.
Thanks for that great article Lester, pictures really make it, the Soyez on the last page is magnificent :)
Come on, that is just painful. Did you go to school?
Re: OK, case study....
AC, In which case why did he even bother checking Amazon for availability? Sorry, not chomping. £6.50 for a digital copy of a 10 year old book is daylight robbery. I'm not advocating piracy but more illustrating what causes it and the ramifications involved.
I believe the first book was 89 pence last year.
OK, case study....
A 'Friend' of mine recently went away for a few days with work, he was reading Virtual light on his Kindle, saw he had 45% of the book left to go so didn't bother loading any more material on to the device. On the second night he hit 79% of the book and it ended, the remaining 21% was adrivel and nonsense interview with the author. So, he went on Amazon to purchase a digital copy of the sequel, Idoru, sure enough he found pages selling the paperback for around £4, the digital copy was an astounding £6.50!!!
Not wanting to relinquish his upright stance, trousers around the waste nor lack of proximaty to a barrel, he found a torrent containing the novel he wanted and downloaded it over HSPDA using bittorrent for android in around 40 minutes, said torrent actually contained the complete works of Gibson.
He then activated the hotspot on his phone, connected his Kindle and mailed a text copy to his Kindle address which auto converted it into a readable format.
He would have gladly paid for a copy at a reasonable price, but due to lack of forsight and a generous helping of greed from the distributers, they have now lost out on any future purchases from this user of the autor in point.
Who are the real pirates in this story?
No Alien Storm either
That one was totally unique for it's day, featured side scroling platform levels, high speed running levels, flying level and the ubiquitous 1st person sections AND bonus levels of smashing things ala' SF2 bonus style.
Was a real gem.
