as they hilariously call him on PM!
You weren't reading it during the last Labour government then...?
Indeed, you wonder how users of Windows Phones (both of them, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!) would get on with desktop Skype. How well does it work without a keyboard and mouse?
How is that relevant?
Don't you mean "Why bother to help Microsoft make it easier to manage Linux on Azure?"
My guess would be that you would help them because it would make Linux a more attractive option on Azure, meaning less people using Windows?
Isn't that specifically why the license is like it is, so anyone can use it?
I thought the request was for you to tell them about your system?
Ooh, name calling? Sounds like I touched a nerve!
"I can name many artists I like, although I doubt you have heard of them." Isn't that a quote from the article I linked to?
so I'm fine with it.
Meat isn't the most efficient way of utilising land to produce protein for humans. Even given the need to eat multiple vegetable protein sources in one meal to get a balance doesn't make meat more efficient.
There's no real reason a car needs leather as any part of it, other than the fact people like it.
Vegans aren't all mental. The production of cows milk is arguably much crueller than meat production.
Must be nightmare deciding who to deride the most, the freaky vegans or the mental e-car drivers...
... on a rolling loop just in case a decent song came on.
Well don't leave us hanging! Has one come on yet?
Not really. She withdrew it because they didn't pay enough. Whether the money comes from Ads or Subscriptions is irrelevant. She didn't say "the moneys fine but I hate advertising".
Is the rest of the article equally sloppy?
How does this compare to other Apple product launches? Are we at the point where, if this was an iPhone launch, they'd be shouting about breaking sales records or do they never release sales figures this quickly?
People use Android on the Desktop?
always seem to have over zealous moderation.
Why so sensitive?
Classic jake!! (Though I'm surprised they don't give excellent milk!)
Fuck it, I'm in a good mood. Have an upvote!!!
Yes, very good son. Go and show your mother, I'm busy.
...still being widely used for a long time after they should have been buried.
I disagree. There's plenty of Windows XP and IE6 installs that are nothing to do with a stable and common infrastructure. Laziness, penny pinching and a disregard for the value of IT (and the opinions of IT professionals) are much more common reasons.
I'd say that "a stable and common infrastructure" and "open standards for data formats and exchange" go very well together.
That's the opposite of what the article claims, principle 1: decentralisation combined with interconnectivity: there is no central database; every stakeholder (government department, business or even individual) has the freedom to choose its own system in its own time with the guiding principle being that all participating systems be able to work together
You can't both be right. Got any references to back up your "insecure and centralised" claim? The article doesn't have any....
No, best to look at the evidence they present and make your conclusions based on that.
There was an excellent article about the moon landings in Fortean Times a couple of years ago. Someone who thought they were faked was given 5 or 6 pages to show photos and explain their reasoning. The next issue featured a load of letters explaining all the issues raised in the article and why they were invalid, destroying all of the fake landing arguments comprehensively. IMHO this is how it should be done. Everyone gives their evidence and arguments then you can decide for yourself.
And rightly so. Religion is a massive part of human life and has been for thousands of years. To not educate children in religion because you're not religious is like not teaching them history because you're not from the past or not teaching them geography because they don't live on a mountain.
The problem here is that R.E. is supposed to teach you ABOUT religion, not preach religion at you. I'd be interested to see exactly what was taught in that lesson, did your daughter just love the story and the songs or was the teacher trying to convince her that Christianity is the one true faith?
Sounds like you'd add a bit of balance as a governor, but don't get carried away. Arguing from a position of knowledge is always better.
Really? So what's that wee fish with the word "Darwin" in it doing on the back of that car?
Oh, my bad. Further digging reveals:
Long and the short of it: Cortana does have to have the location services on. Some argue that as this is Windows phone that won't make any difference to battery consumption: "Disabling location services on the OS level doesn't really conserve power in a noticable way." Hmmm, surely it takes more power to check location than it does to not check location...
So sorry for doubting you!
Well looks pretty straightforward, and certainly not GPS related: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-gb/how-to/wp8/cortana/quiet-hours-and-cortana
Does this not work? What makes you think you need the GPS on to do this?
No, it's not. From a consumer perspective it makes sense. As an events scheduler and search front end there'll be enough hooks for Cortana to work on iOS. Besides, MS would want to keep a few things Windows only to give them an angle when it's time to upgrade your phone.
Their strategy with this and Office365 is to go cross platform. Given their market share that's eminently sensible.
like it needs any OS. Choice is good. Learning that there are different ways to do things is good. If you learn that some ways are better than others then so be it, but having the choice is important.
Besides, if all this proves is that Windows is bobbins what's your problem?
First quote was with respect to running the PI windows app on a pc, where the GPIO hardware doesn't exist. He's saying there's no emulator.
Why? It broadcasts a URL using sound.
It's compulsive with them. No matter how irrelevant to the job at hand they have to scrape our data.
The monkey victory dance was popular where I worked at the time. Fixed a bug? Monkey victory dance!!
Don't be obtuse. The network doesn't need to parse the content. The browser on the device parses the content and requests the ad. The mobile network blocks the ad networks IP address. No need to snoop on any content.
Carry on Musk! Apparently most tradesmen are dodgy so you do what you like!
Proper light guns need a CRT unfortunately. Best you'll get these days is some camera based fakery like the wii pointer (which actually works really well for light gun style shooters, but it's not "proper"!)
No you weren't. You were hilariously dissing those religious idiots that you know so much better than. Can't say I though it was funny (And I have a very good sense of humour!!), it just sounded like the usual intellectual intolerance directed toward the religious that you get on here all the time...
Are the 47 upvotes ironic? Difficult to tell isn't it....
Just let those who disagree with it opt out of it. Abdicate your rights if you really think the HRA is a bad idea.... But no, it's always someone else's human rights that are the problem.
Because it never stopped and someone might notice? You don't need terrier men on a drag hunt....
You seem to have accidentally typed "almost" in the middle of that sentence...
Right, so May's got the right idea in your opinion? The government should promote free speech by stopping free speech?
I guess someone got the government they deserved....
WAAAAH!!! SOMEONE WROTE SOMETHING NICE ABOUT M$!!!!!!!!
Please refer to my previous post!
Grow the fuck up!
Too much faff. I bought one BluRay disc, eventually managed to rip it and watch it with VLC and tbh even paused and up close it didn't look any better than a dvd to my old eyes. Won't be buying another one, I used to watch VHS videos so DVD is more than crisp enough for me....
You kids with your cool lingo!!!
(That's one to use next time I skype the boy, convince him I'm down with da yoot!!)
I was in the queue for self righteousness getting seconds.
Unless I disagree with the standard, obv....
...build their own clients and hide data from the web.
And they should be stopped from doing this why exactly?
