Sounds like there is a common cause..
Perhaps some software running in the background interfering with it..
Trusteer Rapport? (I see this cause issues frequently)
The last major issue I had with Chrome was due to the error reporting module.. Would stop virtual machines from being able to allocate enough memory.
Re: any recommendations for VPN router?
Just have a look for anything that supports dd-wrt firmware. I picked up a TP-Link WDR3600 for about £50 and immediately put dd-wrt on it. Works fantastic.

Re: See ...
"I think UKIP are simply a shell organisation for the more far right of the Tories. Get out of Europe then we can scrap all the laws designed to protect the little man from global.corp."
And you would be not too far off the mark:
Comets have air?
We are affected :(
Currently have 3 websites down, email down, our licensing server down, our DM system down - not a good start to the week.
The phones are ringing crazy with our upset clients.
Re: shock absorbers for landing
There was a shock absorber system - but the gravity is so weak on the comet that even the slightest bounce would cause the probe to go skywards again.. That's why they had the harpoon system - to anchor it in place after the touchdown and prevent the bounce.
I hate to disagree..
... but I think it may be you that is wrong here Simon.
"Culture Secretary Sajid Javid said: "It can't be right that in a fifth of the UK, people cannot use their phones to make a call. The government isn't prepared to let that situation continue."
Just to make it clear, Javid is wrong. He’s confused people with places. What’s missing is geographical coverage, not population coverage."
Javids words are "in a fifth of the UK" meaning a fifth of the geographical area of the UK, not a fifth of the population.
The Bible is on the list because it "contains principles and guidelines to be a good person”
I would disagree - the bible contains lots of principles and guidelines for being pure evil..
As an example (for the promotion of murder in the bible) , see here: http://www.evilbible.com/Murder.htm
I have a nice mix of SSD and spinning rust..
2x 512Gb Corsair SSD (Striped) - OS, Large Applications
2x 1TB Seagate SSHD (Striped) - Small applications, documents, downloads etc
1x 3TB WD Red - Long term storage / backup
1x 30Gb Kingston MSATA SSD - Temp files and paging file
Sad day :(
However - without this kind of testing and pushing the boundaries of what is possible we would never hope to leave the earth. Kudos to the pilots and Virgin for their bravery and we can only hope that this test results in safer space travel in years to come.
To make mistakes is part of the learning process - it is essential that Virgin are open about what went wrong so everybody else can learn and not make the same mistake.
If Virgin want test pilots, I would volunteer in a heartbeat - as I am sure many others would.. Risk like this is worth it for the rest of the human race. A tragedy, but worth it in my opinion. I know that sounds callus, but look at the early pioneers of flight, or the formula one drivers of yesteryear - without them pushing the boundaries of technology we would be decades behind. Natural disasters wipe out more every year than all technological experiments combined.
Re: Bigger bums??
Not only that, but bigger bums are more padded and the curve on them is less.
..I'm going for the Focus. As noted in the article, its a better car to drive (which is what I do when in the car!)
What makes you think that?
I have Netflix running most evenings and I use my internet connection for running offsite backups from the office (that adds up to around 20-30GB daily)
As well as 2 or 3 steam games / month (can be 30GB each these days) - it all adds up.
Would cost me between £400 and £500 every month at that rate!
Sorry.. had to be done..
Re: *GolfClap* Fekkin brilliant.
Of course, its pointless changing your passwords given that these dip shits obviously don't give a flying fuck about security and have probably secured the server and databases with admin / admin or similar. The chances of your password being salted, hashed and peppered are likely nil.
I went for the slightly more expensive Ares QX 130 at £65 on Amazon (Cheaper elsewhere).
It has pretty good stability even in light wind - as well as a great range of accessories available (from bubble blower to grappling hook as well as a 60fps camera)
Batteries are nice and cheap as well - around £4-6 on ebay with a flight time of around 10 mins each.
Re: Useless without the range
I think it is because our walls are stuffed with metal.. Reinforcement behind the plaster. Kind of makes the entire flat into a faraday cage!
Useless without the range
Range and signal crowding are always an issue with WiFi - I would much rather see a WiFi router that can push 200Mbps through my walls without interference than a 4.6Gbps router that I have to be within 2 ft of. The 2.4 GHz band is crowded where I live and the 5 GHz band is too weak a signal to be useful outside of the same room the router lives in.
Re: prior art?
Yep - I have an eVic and it can do everything mentioned in this patent - count puffs, limit puffs, connect to PC - it even monitors the length of time I puff for and the strength it is set to for each puff - as well as the time of day.
"Honestly - is it SO hard to write in standard English? Is it necessary to miss out occasional words and punctuation? Do you have to use "teh"?"
Seriously though, not all keyboards are optimised for full, standard English - think phones, tablets etc..
The whole point of English is communication and so long as you can get your message across intelligibly then what does it matter if a few full stops, capital letters or words are missing?
I wonder what happens with a lower force - say 30 lbs applied repeatedly over a week?
Who cares about data loss?
Personally, I don't really care about data loss / corruption as I keep everything backed up to a NAS with mirrored RAID anyway. As such, I run 2x 512GB Crucial MX100 SSDs in a stripe, 2x 1TB Seagate SSHDs in a stripe for main storage, a 30GB mSATA SSD for my paging file / temp files and a 3TB WD Red for archival.
Performance is around 1GB/s on my OS/Applications RAID. Win 8.1 boot time is under 5 seconds from cold.
I guess I would be labelled as a pirate then..
My usage is around 1TiB/month at the moment virtually all of it over VPN and all legal. For starters I host an offsite backup for work which sends approx 15-20GiB each night over a VPN. I also push all my traffic over a VPN which includes Netflix, browsing, Youtube - as well as Steam downloads which can soon add up!
Why do I use a VPN? Privacy - these days it is just as easy to configure it in my router so it is permanent and works across all my devices automagically.
Why exactly would a regular 3d printer not work? (Other than the printing tray not being secured by anything other than gravity which could be fixed with a couple of clips)
Re: Slanted hard disk bays???
HDDs are mounted behind the cover on the right hand side. They are not slanted.
That is the point the OP is making.. think you missed it.
Links to the decryptcryptolocker site give a 403 - forbidden error..
Looking at the passport, at least they won't get sued for rounded corners!
Re: Seven-core fibre ?
No - this is a single fibre, but with 7 cores running through it.
Better explained in this article.
UK police perhaps?
We have recently seen 660 people arrested for child porn images in an operation that lasted 6 months and targeted the dark web.. could this be linked?
What we really need to know...
"... is whether memory or the processor are soldered in, making upgrades more or less impossible. But the teardown dons didn't reveal this key piece of info."
You can't tell from the photo's on the site you link to???
I'll give you a clue, they are!
Smaller search engines???
"The government officials argued that the search index ruling was impossible to enforce for smaller search engines that don’t have the resources of an ad behemoth like Google to process thousands of takedown requests."
Like Bing who received under 20 requests on the first day of the ruling coming into effect(compared to Google's 12000). Not too sure smaller search engines will have that hard a time really!
More information needed..
Any links to the source of these allegations? What other AV systems are on the "naughty" list - the article names and shames only 4 out of a headline 14!
Re: Wrong Category
TalkTalk bombarded their customers for years with literature about their "HomeSafe" options - by mail, email and IIRC I even had a phonecall or two offering it to me! I also think it has been a preselected option for signups for years as well. I have had to actively refuse it each and every time rather than confirming that I wanted it.
Pretty sure my Samsung Note 2 does this already.. If I wave my hand towards it, the screen comes on and shows me the clock/notifications.
Funny, I am allergic to Apple products as well.. Not that I get a rash - but my blood pressure goes through the roof when I am forced to use them!
Re: Surely an easy fix for this...
Yup.. we have seen it on our Amazon AWS server.. fortunately, it is possible to firewall it in such a way that only specified IP addresses can log in! (That's possible using advanced firewall in Windows so long as you know what to do)
Surely an easy fix for this...
Why hasn't RDP been patched to only allow a certain number of login attempts / min.. My car stereos' have done this (With the security code) since as long as I can remember!
Re: Time for some truly revolutionary GUIs?
Microsoft tried that with BOB years ago.. And it was spectacularly bad!
More recently, I went in to buy a HDMI cable and was told the gold plating would improve the picture quality.
In other news
Civilization V is now available for SteamOS :D
Perhaps they could use the steam to drive a turbine and reclaim some of that energy?
Whats the point of super fast mobile broadband..
If i can burn through my monthly allowance in under 10 mins?
Rather than focus on speed, I want to see the ridiculous data caps gone. Then (and only then) I might consider 4G.
Re: Over reaction?
It is an "Open" reservoir in the sense that it is open to the elements, wildlife and such. However, these reservoirs contain fully treated water ready to go to the water mains for drinking etc.
There are no fish in them and they are not fed by rivers etc (Although I expect they get run off from rain)
IIRC they get some limited treatment before entering the water mains such as filtering.
They are supposed to be either covering them or giving the water further treatment by 2020.
GPU Mining is not dead
It will simply shift to other ASIC resistant coins based on scrypt-N or other algos such as Vertcoin etc.
I feel sorry for everyone with caps.. I downloaded over 900GB last weekend alone (after formatting my computer - I re-downloaded my entire steam library!)
Re: Since when...
Reading the actual patent, surely the heuristics is patentable - however the patent seems to cover interacting with the heuristics which are - quite frankly - obvious and should not be patentable in the slightest!
" Using a plurality of heuristic algorithms to operate upon information descriptors input by the user, the present invention locates and displays candidate items of information for selection and/or retrieval. Thus, the advantages of a search engine can be exploited, while listing only relevant object candidate items of information."
Re: knackered battery
What in the hell are you doing to your batteries?
Mine gets run down to between 5-10% daily and I have NEVER had to replace it or those of any of my previous phones! (And they have always been replaceable - I totally disagree with fixed batteries just in case they do develop a fault)
Modern batteries should be good for 1000+ full charges and still hold >70% of their original charge!
