And the server version, too
I run a couple of test servers and upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 (or maybe it was 10.04 to 10.10, I forget) on one of them totally screwed it. Now, I only update major revisions now when I build a new server or replace the main hard disk.
However, I detest the RPMs that some non-Debian ones use and am thinking seriously of switching from Ubuntu to Debian for the next update.
do what you want to do?
Steve Jobs? I thought it was Eddie and the Hot Rods who said that.
Well, close enough...
I'm not into shoot-em-up style games but I wouldn't mind seeing revamped versions of the Myst series. I've still got an old PC running Windows 98 just for the originals.
"aimed at slightly dumber devices"
Dumber devices? Ah, they must be talking about Ballmer...
I have a hat.
Nothing can possibly go wrong, says gov
It will cause a slight draft and cause Bruce Forsyth's wig to momentarily flap about.
Wow, I hadn't realised the Docklands Light Railway was a German company who also did space stuff!
"Statistical analysis. It helps you determine trends and extrapolate likely futures."
And still get it 90% wrong.
"Doing the naturist stuff + chemo does seem to work. But don't cut the treatment!!!"
Wow, you mean running around nekkid also helps cure cancer? "No, officer, I wasn't flashing at the kiddies - it's just part of my treatment."
Optional title is optional
No payment would be big enough for me to trust those scum again (not that I did in first place).
...but only one. The idiot spouting it in the first place.
Actually, it was 11.10 that was RELEASED.
Well, that makes a change from larger, human sized mammals mistaking fibre-optic for copper...
Sony caught doing something bad?
Your users can fly? Amazing!
Betcha feeling sorry for that comment now...
What do you mean "sometimes"?
Sigh... if only we could lock both Ellison and Ballmer into an escape-proof (and soundproof) room and throw away the key.
Ah, the Opera mobile/mini user
One question. Are you the same person as the Opera (desktop) user that's always getting downvoted on here?
Well, whatever, I'm downvoting you just in case...
If this goes on then I wonder if it will be possible to buy *.co.uk where * is null? Should be fun attempting to type that in!
Oh, you mean "oar". I was trying to figure out what was relevant about being chained to a rock (or even "chaned to a roc").
You bastard! I followed that link and, spotting the title, just managed to close the browser tab down before it played the second note!!
...it supports border-radius.
Coat, get, leave...
Do the sweet natured and loving siblings, the Gallager brothers know about this?
Mine's the one with a wonderwall in the pocket...
You should not see this at all?
First time I've run Acid 3 in months. Funny, but I saw that message on one run using the Comodo browser (Webkit based) - a second run had it appear for a split second and then it disappeared. Other browsers sometimes show it momentarily.
All the browsers I tested* got 100%, including IE9 (and I tested the latest versions of FF, Comodo, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
*except Lynx - :)
It's Friday and we have Playmobile! What more can a commentard ask for! (well, ok, maybe some more BOFH, please)
No, that is probably just to annoy the Opera user that everyone down votes.
Just how powerful is that laser? If I dismantle the drive can I use the laser to knock planes out the sky?
Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?
Mines the one with a grump in the pocket.
Wonder if it's going to be worthwhile picking one of these up for the peanuts they are now worth just in case they become collectors items later on!
And, while we're at it, have a similar law apply to politicians and their so called 'promises' with the exception that if they don't keep their promises they don't wear a dunce cap but have their entire head removed instead.
Looking through all that lot I think it would be simpler to forget about any balloons, launchers, toruses (tori?) etc and leave LOHAN where it is and just move the Earth out of the way instead!
A developers' union could be a good thing. Well, it is about time Google became accountable to the rest of the world+dog. They do lots of good stuff but seem to think they can live in an ivory tower ignoring those knocking on the door with legitimate issues.
Go wash your mouth out with soap and water!
I'm just wondering why some idiot downvoted you just for stating that something happened. There are some complete twonks around here, aren't there!
Ok, so imagine one of these is driving along a narrow mountain road with a sheer drop on one side and solid rock on the other. Now stick a jaywalker (or a goat) in the middle of the road around the next corner. Does the car plough into the rock and kill the driver or throw itself down the mountainside and ditto ditto? Or can the driver override the system and just impale the jaywalker/goat on the front grill?
But, surely, that should of bin "Shirley knot?"
How sad, I feel a Nelson Muntz moment coming on.
Don't bother Sarah
Here's one I made earlier:
Scroll down just past half way or Ctrl-F for "bootnotes"
We've got to make our web sites support IE8 until 2020? Oh bugger...
@AC 16:13 Geri
"He then got his nervous system wired up to his wife's (and, I think, a robot arm controller). That is really, really cool and fuck anyone who disagrees. Nervous system control over a robot arm and inter-nervous system communications are awesome"
The most surprising bit about that is the fact that some woman was mental enough to become his wife - what WAS she thinking?
Bill - I see that, although billray.com has been taken, both billrayhack.com and billrayreghack.com are still up for grabs!
He should pop over here and bag a few of those in Westminster whose main aim in life seems to be to produce hot air...
My heart bleeds.... meh!
Couldn't happened to a nicer guy - hmm, could do with an icon depicting a hangman's scaffold here... ah well, the Satan one will have to do instead.
Now that's dedication...
I vote that we honour him with the title "Fanboi Supreme" (well, until someone donates their heart in exchange for an iPad, anyway).
Nokia Sales Forecast
A spokesman for Nokia said, "We might (or might not) sell something next quarter. But don't quote me."
But Shirley that should be...
...an iRoar or an iWhimper!
Both have probably been trademarked by now as Apple have, no doubt, employed someone and given them the sole task of going through a large dictionary putting an 'i' in front of every word in it and registering most of them - hmm, wonder if they've registered iCunt yet....
Bloody hell - can't believe I actually said that about the useless, Phorm-loving, money-grabbing bastards. But between BT and the DEA it's definitely a case of the "lesser of two weasels" (or something like that).
A flaw in IE!!! Shock Horror!
