hissy fit central
I dont get the hissy fits. I welcome anything that makes firefox work better with websites that only seem to work properly in IE, due to retarded web devs.
And, as Mike B correctly points out, MS arent the only ones to do it!
Fer fucks sake! Who employs the people that think up ridiculous names? Why cant we give shit like this a decent name!? What the hell is up with Tricorder (no doubt "Triage Recorder").
didnt we already have april fools day?
Yes, you figured out how videos are captured. Didnt answer Ben's question though! :P
I dont get it...
Why is my VM service not as shit as everyone is saying?
20meg - 100% uptime and full speed 99% of the time. Only time I see slowness normally is when I'm downloading stuff from slow servers (Asus support website for example!)
I dont give a rats arse about Phorm as long as it doesn't affect my speed, or delve into my porn browsing habits.
Paris, cos she's on my search criteria from time to time.
@ Chris W
> Does this make all followers of any religion a jerk and an asshole?
The right to free speech is forfeit when whatever you're talking about is clearly a blatant lie with no evidence, factual or otherwise, to back it up, and masses of evidence/solid proof to the contrary.
Well, it is in my opinion anyway!!
wtf, sod making them greener
We need to teach 80% of them how to drive first!!
Motorway driving should be a mandatory part of the driving test... fed up of middle lane hogs and people who cant keep a constant speed.
Ferrari without a paintjob?
A film like this with no CGI is more like a Ferrari without the paint job, windows, engine or wheels. Structure's in place, but it won't take you anywhere!
re: I don't know much about "art"...
Erm... totally agree! This China bloke probably had a bad experience as a child.
There is a fine line these days between 'art' and sick shit that needs some serious ridicule.
Surely the hardcore drinkers among us would have already figured this out for themselves... I've been eating bacon sarnies to get rid of hangovers for years!
you think thats bad?
I paid 25 quid to watch the Amir Khan boxing match - you'd expect it to have NO adverts... no, they crammed adverts in at every opportunity! Cheeky wankers!
I would rather pay £140p/a then have to sit through 15 minutes of adverts in a 45 minute show. I fucking hate adverts that much.
How much did Opera software pay to not get included in that list?
where are the regrav modules?
this is no true flying car... just a plane with foldable wings.
hahahaha.... i do hope you're being sarcastic.
What is this mysterious tape made from ducks?
In this day and age, locking down handsets like this is insane. You should be able to buy the device and use whatever network you prefer. Fucking stupid.
I was on the train when they closed it
Fuck me was the screeching loud - I had to block my ears. Can only imagine what it was like for people on the platform.
It's because Bank has a curved platform and the trains dont like going anywhere but straight. So they have to use guide rails, which need lubrication.
I was disappointed by this article...
I read the headline as "A Geeks Guide 2 CyberSex"
To be fair, they do need to get rid of some shit in Merthyr. Went there once on call and thought I was going to get killed.
thank god for torrents
And they wonder why they cant stamp out piracy. Greedy fucks.
first small EV ever that actually looks good
first small EV that I've seen that doesnt try and model itself on some whacky shitty design that the designers seem to think is standard for EV's. Great looker!
sick of jade
She's even made it into El Reg. There's just no getting away from her! Yes it may be tragic, but to be perfectly honest, I didnt give two shits what happened to her alive, let alone dead.
Kinda reminds me of a new shape Civic, but I still like the styling!
Beats the shit out of all the other leccy/hybrid/fuel cell cars I've seen thus far.
Star Treak already done this
I seem to remember in an episode of Voyager, they referred to an unspecified volume of data called a TeraQuad! Clearly they should call this new method a Quad, not a Qit!
Man thats sad.
Annoying but true. Never owned an Apple device in my life but its damn frustrating to see that no one can even come close to getting the smoothness of the UI that Apple do.
How are the plod going to enforce this if it passes? Pull over every driver with a hands-free kit regardless whether or not they were on a call!?
IMO this is just another nanny state idea set to piss off more people than save lives.
Banning the use of mobile phones without hands-free kits is sensible. This is plain stupid.
I dont think so either
I agree with John. I cant be arsed to put any more thought into it either.
This is blatantly because they have lowered their manufacturing standards. I thought Seagate buying out Maxtor would mean better Maxtor drives - hah wrong. Worse Seagate drives.
let me be the first to say...
First time in eighteen years?
What's the point in resilliency testing a system in space? It's sored in a cold vacuum, and can't gather dust or anything else that might cause damage. If anything, the resilliency testing would have more likely blown it up prematurely.
I get XL TV, XL broadband (20meg > 50meg) and a phone with free calls for £60 a month.
That's a fair price if you ask me!
Anyway at least this gives me another 4 years before I may have to go ISP hunting again. I've used NTL since they first launched cable BB and haven't looked back. Been mega quick and reliable.
Well here's one IT admin who will be banning Chrome entirely from his network, and downplaying it over-zealously to anyone who dares mention it.
Aside from that MASSIVE downside, it's not a bad browser.
Is that like tofu?
Mines the one with the snafu recepie book in.
To Mr. Page. The new king of made up super-extended-mashup-nouns.
"wiki+digg+2.0 sciento-mashup-u-like kit" = win
Unfair dismissal surely?
Ok, there has been a lot of incredibly high profile data loss stories going on in recent months, but this is surely taking far too drastic action. To dismiss the manager for having his laptop stolen is outrageous... It's not like he asked the theives to come and steal it while he was away.
As has been said, data security shouldn't be managed by the individuals, it should be managed by the business IT dept. What were patients records doing on his laptop anyway? Shouldn't that all be stored in a secure central database somewhere, which the employees access using a VPN of some description, like everyone else in the real world does?
Good use of science
So while the mysteries of particle physics remain untouched, we now know that Van Gough liked to scribble out crap paintings.
Good use of a multi-billion dollar facility if you ask me!
Mines the one with the magnetic doughnuts in the pocket.
im sorry, what?
all the alliteration would appear to have made the article's meaning completely disappear for me.
i think i got it...
sienna miller has CGI muff hair in latest film?
damn i hate mondays.
daniel... base 16??
Computers work in binary. Anything on top of that is just logistical and used to carry out extended functions, making things easier for programmers.
Will! You! Stop! With! The! Stupid! Headlines! Whenever! Yahoo! Is! Involved!?
The real reason for the British economy downturn
Ahh the truth comes to light. All those incompetent procurement officers working for the government, wasting money.
Does my nut in, specially when I work for a specialist procurement services provider. We could probably halve the governments military spending given the time of day.
Well said man! I lol'ed at the pissing petrol :D
This is news? Who cares!?
Seriously, what a waste of time. They have a direct link one click from the homepage and you can search for it anyway.
If users were so worried about their privacy, then the Internet wouldn't exist in the state it is.
Besides, an IP address is NOT a private piece of information, so these kids are barking up the wrong tree anyway. Your IP is owned by the ISP.
how do i get bork?
Missing the point
A lot of you seem to miss the point that this is intended as a backup system, which by all means is a bloody brilliant idea!
It could be the difference between a damaged plane going down taking everyone with it, or a damaged plane still able to maintain some landing control thanks to the wireless backup.
Could see this happening years ago
Anyone who's been to a PC World store in the past 6 years could have forseen this! The only people who shop there are OAP's and chavs, neither of whom have any idea about computers.
For a store that charges £10 for a kettle lead, I can have no sympathy.
Paris, as I'm sure she'd like a rich OAP to mooch off (and she's very chav-like).
QUE IS SPANISH FOR 'WHAT' (not french)
CUE IS ANY ACTION OR THING THAT IS DONE, WHICH IS FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER ACTION
QUEUE IS AN ORDERLY LINE, NORMALLY CONSISTING OF PEOPLE WAITING FOR SOMETHING
Jeez... How many of you come from Pennsauken High?
You realise Virgin Media is still essentially NTL? Branson only owns part of it.
Laptop doing harm?
Short of blowing up in your face, how the hell can a laptop "harm" someone?
makes no sense?
surely the stolen furniture would just have been deleted from the guys account and put back where it belongs... I mean, they do take backups, right? What a waste of police time.
