Re: Android is not a saviour
Actually, your missing a third company who are profiting from Android, Microsoft if all those patent agreements are anything to go by..
Wonder if Nokia's agreement with MS covers the MS patents? if they do, it may actually be less of a pain to do Android.
This app accesses the archive on WOS directly so you dont have to keep the MP3;s around.
Also, WOS isnt an archive for "Abandonware", they get permission for all the stuff they make available on there.
Its a good example of doing it properly.
two points i disagree on...
That Copyright is time limited. It is effectively *not* time limited due to the constant extensions being put on it.
Although Bastard Inc could set up their own registry, someone else less of an asshole could also set up one, and a Diligent search would have to include them both.
Saying that, I feel the government should be pushing back on things like copyright extensions, (Should be 20+20 max), and properly define Fair use. This does seem more than a little silly. At most it should be a specific exclusion for Archival purposes.
What so you mean...
*Both* the people in N Korea who are allowed to see the internet may be inconvenienced.?
So much pointlessness, so little time...
"you use Windows as your web server" jokes officially end here..
Until next week..
Windows server has always be better for for Active directory, exchange and some Windows client related stuff, as you would expect of products that are inexorably tied together. however, other servers, have always beaten Windows server for pretty much everything else. Especailly IIS.
MS seems to have made some inroads into catching up. Then we can wait another 4 years while the rest of the world leaves MS in the dust again.
This doesnt seem to have changed a thing.

There, corrected for you.
Re: Well done!
Ah, but i've seen the "Adventures of Kim jong un" cartoons on Youtube.
Its all a cover, He's probably been quietly farting "Friendship missiles" into orbit for years.
Re: Good job he wasn't a diplomat
Well thats not an uncommon opinion of people of his age, especially as his Fiancee was killed by a German bomb.
Re: Must not throw old computer kit away...
if you can find one that old, you may be able to connect an old 3.5" Fdd, (the 720K ones, NOT the 1.44Mb ones as the interface changed slightly)
Alternatively, you may want to try a null modem cable to another PC (Although serial ports are starting to become an extinct species) (I remember laplink years ago, do they still make that?)
I seem to remember i managed to get Minix on to a 1640 not too many years ago, Cant remember how i did it though. I suspect i may have put the hard drive card into a 486 that was obsolete enough to still have 16 bit slots and with a bios still able to understand 8 bit hard drive controllers.
Re: Is there something in the coffee?
Leave the cup for a few days and see :-)
But what about..
3D monster maze, originaly written for the zx81 in 1981!
Re: will have destroyed the embryos too.
I'm sure you would be surprised at the amount of places, especially small businesses, who have had to learn this the hard way.
Re: Far enough the USA were Tards
Its also worth noting that the MP3's in question could have been legally ripped. from his own collection. Unlike in Blighty, this is legal in the US.

Re: Won't anyone think of the HSE?
I suspect they dont care and are concerned with Real issues.
I would argue it would have been more important
6 months ago, while there still doubts about the copyrightability of API's.
Fortunately, it would appear that little idea is now out of the window due to the Oracle-google spat.
So not particulary at the moment.
Re: Wonderful... NOT
Certainly in the UK, Any one of numerous Utility company GIS's were doing this two decades ago, Except with pipework, pumps and other paraphenalia. (Sometimes those buried valves and loggers are dfficult to find without a map)
I worked on one shortly after i left Uni, Trying to remember when that was though. It certainly wasnt later than 1995,
Re: And all those US chips designed in Israel?
Why is a discussion involving Mossad automatically an Anti-semetic rant?
Mossad get up to stuff the CIA can only dream of including kidnappings and assassinations.
Do you really think they wouldnt if given the choice?
Of course, this equally applies to the CIA and MI6.
When there is money to made, and there is no law preventing it.
Re: For once
No, because the advertisers will ignore the flag if its from IE. Its not something that would be implemented in the browser, only the ad server can choose to deal with it.
Re: Ad men see bonuses going south
Why? this is do not track FLAG. and they will simply ignore the flag if its from MSIE (If were lucky) or any other browser (I consider this to be more likely)
IE cant magically stop the admen from tracking you if they want to. The only way to do that is to not use the web.
Re: Yeah, there's pretty much no way to spin the admen's position
But its an optional standard. It likely at least some of the admen were going to ignore it anyway, but now they all will. it wont Stop a thing!
if were lucky, they may still honor the flag on other browsers, but the admen have now been given a big out, so this entire thing has been a waste of time.
Also, this is a DO NOT TRACK flag, not a DO NOT SHOW ADVERTS as some people seem to think.
What microsoft have done is removed any chance of this being of any use. Well done.
Re: Who buys galaxy tabs anyway?
According to the figures that came out in court, 1.6 million people so far. Although not even close to the 34 million that apple shifted. Of course, thats only in the US. I can see them shifting a greater proportion in the far east.
Still, its not in inconsiderable chunk of change.
Re: Ban The Iphone 5!!!
Erm, the CPU in the Iphone isnt designed by Samsung, its just manafactured by them.
The core CPU design is owned by ARM, and the modifications are owned by Apple. According to some of the technical reviews i've seen of the silicon, they have done a damn good job of the design as well.
Re: Actually, for once...
The case has ALREADY been proven in a court of law. It simply stops the person involved having to sue every single publication on a case by case basis, a simple, I won the case, so please remove the article will be enough
Actually, you have a point there. Whoops. Mea Culpa.
Re: Actually, for once...
Sadly cant return my internet law degree, i have lost the secret decoder ring they sent when i sent my $10 off.
Fair comment on your fair comment though. it was only an example, and an easy one. However, even that's not an absolute defense, and its not a defense at all if i don't have the money to defend it.
Re: Actually, for once...
Really? You do know that something hasnt got to be untruthful to be defamatory.
I could say for instance that Nick Clegg is a Lying git for promising not to vote for an increase in tutuion fees, and then going ahead and doing it.
Thats defamatory (Because it villifies him) , but True as well.
In theory, in the UK, this could get me sued for libel, as unlike in the US, the truth is not an absolute defence against libel, but i would probably get away with it because both statements are in the public domain, and i could prove it via public documents, and the standard is lower for publig figures anyway.
however, if anyone taking me to court would probably win anyway, because i would quickly bancrupt myself. (Even though I would get most of my money back if i won)
Some of you..
I live in a house in the pennines. The rest of you will have to be under 50 foot of water before The it starts lapping around here... although Hebden Bridge (Just down the road), seems to be in the process of being claimed by an all new inland sea at the moment.
Re: Wanted by NZ police...
Well, the NZ police seem to be on pretty good terms with the RIAA, perhaps they can get them to send over the Keystone Cops films as "Training videos"
Re: Quality, quality, quality...
So how many do you reacon are fart apps?
Re: 4 Partitions
The guid partition layout thats part of the EFI standard gives you as many entries as you want. there is no concept of primary and secondary partitions. The old MBR layout is only good for disks up to 2Gb anyway. (Recently bumped into this issue)
Problem with that is:
We need them to feed us all when we have all retired in ,30 years (hem)....
Besides, i do feel that the Majority shouldnt be punished for the fact a very small Minority annoy you.
My brother lives in a deprived area of Liverpool, where a lot of people are unemployed, and believe me, most of them are *not* like that.

Have fun with that. In some languages that wont even get you as far as a "Hello world" app.

Theres a global Strategic Maple syrup reserve?
I thaught that was just a joke on South park.
As an enginneer i resent that. Wallace is a hero among engineering Geeks, whereas, William Hague is an annoying public school tosser who probably couldnt throw together a simple Oscilator if his life depended on it!
Re: Would this infringe Copyright legislation?
Yes, but in the wacky wide world of Copyright legislation, who could tell?
Anyone got a link? i would be interested in seeing precisely what a plain language EULA looks like.
Re: Fast charging
There are ways around that. for instance, what about having a piece of equipment that has a battery at home thats charged at more normal rates. You can then dump the power from one battery to the other at will.
Re: 2 Gig?
Two reasons, reliability, as stated above, Radiation hardened ICs are a lot more expensive than normal ones, but the biggest one is that with the turn-around on these things, and the massive number of test cycles they will have put it through, its likely to have been designed a decade ago.
Iran is mostly our fault.
The massive popular support of the Theocracy was a response to the Dictator the US and the UK put in there, when we paid for the overthrow of Iranian Democracy in 1954, and paid to keep the Shah in power for years.
Back then of course, we didnt make any pretense of it being for anything other than the oil.
Unsurprisingly there not our biggest fans, and are unlikely to be so any time soon.
Re: Gold Medal to the NASA team!
Yeah, Glad they finally got that feet/meters thing sorted out.
He's like a one man conspiricy theory, responsible for everything from the Internet to Global warming.....
Sadly, according to Wikipedia, he's baptist, so we cant find the easy link to the Vatican, but i'm sure its there.
So, hows that Indian outsourcing deal going for you then?
