have strippers. Memorial services in Donglow on the other hand
Not a twitter user, and if 'hold me tight, tiny donkey' is a typical topic, won't be joining soon.
phrase of the week? and it's only Monday.
The goal is to make the meter reading easier.
I think that's only one of the goals, some others include
allowing the energy co. to control your power supply when they need to
making consumption more apparent to the consumer, in the hope that they will moderate their use, thus assisting in meeting EU energy targets
Yes, your example is quite simple. Now take a look at some of the licensing terms for more complex software, like Sql Server or Oracle's DB. Should I be paying per seat, per server/ per core? How do virtual machines count? Do I pay differently for dev / uat servers than live servers?
I remember Oracle trying to suggest that every user of data that had been in a database needed an Oracle license. That meant if I export some data to csv, bring it in to Excel and send it to you, YOU need an Oracle license. I wasn't on the negotiating team, but I don't think they won that one. We were a pretty big Oracle user though, so we were already paying for buckets of licenses.
This sounds a great deal like something Microsoft have - called API management, in Azure.
Lets say you're the BBC. You have lots of data with a set of services to return query results. You want to sell this, with maybe different rates for the number of queries per month, more detailed results = more money etc. You could build your own tool to manage this stuff (with the analytics) or you go to Apigee.
The valuation is presumably based on speculation that this will become a big money spinner and Apigee will get a slice.
A wrist worn device that incorporates a heart monitor, gps and uses blue tooth to sync with your phone. It may also have some phone functions, but I think the emphasis is on tracking you doing a daily run while measuring your heart rate. It doesn't try to look like a watch - hence the name Band, I guess.
try saying that after a few jars.
Same here, Chrome worked for me. FF had a message that it supports webGL, but there was an error. The site is pretty cool though. Be better to run this on Friday afternoon, since the whole flight is about 2 hours.
The whole point is that if you need to do the same thing repeatedly, having a script means that you won't accidently 'check the wrong box'. Nor for that matter will your PFY.
not even a mainline railway
it had a maritime railway though...
Yeah, but times are hard. I envisage something like a school playground, surrounded by a few sheds. Hopefully with a decent local nearby.
Sorry to see you down voted. that made me laugh, and I'm way left of New Labour.
Not sure why the down votes? Maybe saying "odds are" is too speculative, but it's certainly possible. I remember (I think a Dell) firewall appliance where the manual had a section of instructions explaining exactly how to do this.
not because the new design upsets me particularly
a partnership between Facebook and proper tech companies,
Whatever else you might think of FB, you surely can't deny that they are a proper tech company.
but is expected to slip a few places
El Reg should never have dropped their egg-shaped reporter.
If the price quoted is correct, this is the cheapest non-phone game I've seen reviewed for ages.
I remember there was a competition to design the LOHAN livery. Is this the alternative stealth mode to fool the FAA?
MADNESS are/were a band.
This is a quite sane idea, to start again with a standards-compliant browser, giving the opportunity to remove all the code that does non-standard stuff.
Potentially the new browser should be fast and lightweight, and the redesign should make future development easier and quicker.
Where can I volunteer to be an adult?
Sex lives of the Potato Men, I'd forgotten that one. I'm still not sure of was meant to be funny (it wasn't) or it was just crap.
It quite possibly depends on the laws of the country you're in. Supported life of the device is going to be how long the manufacturer expects it to last.
Since no-one repairs anything nowadays, it's probably about 5 minutes.
I wonder where Fox News reporting on Birmingham and Paris fits in? Fake or just satire?
I wonder if it's time to start sending emails containing nothing but random numbers?
For this specific case - detention on the basis of encrypted email - the answer must be for encrypted email to become the norm, and so no cause of suspicion.
For this to happen I'd think it needs to baked in to every email client, setting up the key as part of the install process. It would need to be so transparent that non-technical people wouldn't even know it was happening. I'm a bit hazy on details, but if it was public/private keys, then I guess you'd need a global key-server infrastructure, similar to dns?
And there was us making sure all hard drives / usb sticks etc are encrypted, so as not to fall foul of data protection laws!
It's already an offence not to decrypt material or provide keys if requested by the various law enforcement agencies. If the home secretary is going to sign off on a warrant anyway, why not just use this route? I guess the difference would be that you'd know you were being spied on then.
Still the 'number one government priority is to keep people safe'. If necessary by ensuring that we have no e-commerce to speak of, are the nation most likely to suffer from id-fraud, and live in a state reminiscent of East Germany under the Stasi.
I don't know about Sage, but that is definitely the case for WorldPay. The customer enters their card details on the WorldPay site, so should never be seen on the merchant site.
While I do agree with you, most people hearing a person referred to as a 'hacker' assume that the individual in question breaks into computers. This feels like the same argument that was raging so long ago. So basically while you're right, the majority either don't know or don't care and either way you might as well save your pixels.

I'll echo the comment on drop down thingys. might get used to them but it took me a minute to be sure I'd opened in a new tab, not just opened in the same one. Seems to be fine in IE Win Phone 8.1.
While I have some sympathy with your point, having a contract gives you more than free bling. I buy my phones and have a contract.
What is annoying is that I actually asked if I could put a cap on the bill ( it would be exceptional for me to exceed say £150 / mo), and was told I couldn't. Your data usage is clearly monitored, so that any excess can be charged for. If you're PAYG you can't make calls when your credit runs out. I don't see why the same couldn't be applied to contract phone calls.
I guess it can, and will be once the telcos are forced to.
Have a programme to insure all IT's system are brought up to the latest spec's at least every 3 years.
While I think you make a lot of valid points, have you considered what this suggestion would cost? I guess if you were doing this all the time, you'd become expert at building test environments and implementing regression tests etc, but even then it would still be a massive cost.
It's also used to mean pledging some item in a pawnshop, so 'pawned the company'. make more sense?
Also on the front page of the web site
Also Xamarin studio, if you're into c#.
And there is also embedded. If we skip to server versions, you can install server 2012 without a gui at all. This gives you a server OS that you manage and configure, preferably using remote scripting via powershell. Just like *nix admins have been doing for what, nearly 50 years....
For Windows 8.1 this is no problem. If you want to deploy to a Windows 8.1 Phone, then you have to register the phone as a developer device with MS first. I think you need a dev account to do that, but I might be mis-remembering. You can only install 10 apps at a time in this way.
I guess the story on Windows 10 might be similar to this.
Compare and contrast with the damage caused by the financial meltdown, and the average sentence served by the senior bankers responsible.
The piece in the Guardian quoted (I think it was Vodaphone) as stating that most of the salary cost incurred handling these requests is met by government.
yeah, next year have some of the commentards do an address. Possible subjects; advantages of iThings over MS/Linux, are Google worse than the TLAs? and Media, to download or to buy?
this being a UK law, and YouTube being an international US based web site, probably not. They'll just ignore it.
I think a tile showing fundamentalist opinions will be illegal, should the Tories win next May.
Uploaded to iDrive to be shared with 4chan, and the rest of the world?
I thought 'all the people who perpetuated it should be used for misconduct' in Cheesy's comment was more fun...
