Make jquery native?
Is an optical drive necessary?
I've not used my DVD drive in my desktop PC in probably 3 or 4 years.
With services like Steam allowing you to download games, and sites like LoveFilm letting you stream movies, Spotify for music, along with countless illegal ways for people other than me to get this 'entertainment' media, I wouldn't be upset if I purchased a computer without an optical drive.
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
Well I agree, in that if you put a photo on the internet where you friends are likely to tag you in, your privacy is in their hands. If you don't put your name / photo online then you're pretty much safe, right?
System down, website up.
Seems like the website is up, but their system is down. If you look at the "System Status" at the top of the site, it says:
We apologise but the system is currently down. Please check back later."
FF4 & Windows 7 Crashing
Hope this sorts it!
I'm a big Ninty fan, always have been. But I am dubious/curious about this console (not rushing out to buy one, I don't have the time to play games really any more), but I'm definitely interested in seeing what it has to offer, and whether it really will compete with the XBOX and PS3.
Happy that they've done something different controller wise, always nice to have a different way to play console games, that's the whole point of consoles, to be interactive and fun so will be looking forward to more "actual" gameplay footage.
Zelda looks like it'll be pretty sick though!
Will it be the version that made me shout at the tv at the end of ROTJ?
Not Fair Stats.
How can they brag about the number of downloads they have if the previous versions of the browser were so awful that users would have downloaded anything just to get rid of the crap that was installed previously.
I take my massive tower downstairs to plug into my 50" HD tv in the living room to watch films / online videos. I don't have a games console or Virgin / Sky so my options are limited.
Wouldn't mind having something like this constantly plugged in, not that I'm going to buy one, I don't watch enough TV for it to be worth while.
No suprise there
ZoneAlarm has been crap for years. Used to use it a long time ago, have been more successful just using windows firewall, and don't get popups the whole time whenever something tries to connect.
It is not straightforward for HMG departments to upgrade IE versions on their systems.
That's why you have friggin tech departments! :(
@I don't know why anyone complains about the current startup speed of firefox,
Because it's ridiculously slow in comparison to Chrome? When I load firefox on any of my computers it takes a good 30 seconds to a minute to even show it's face whereas something like Chrome loads up in under 5 seconds.
Looking forward to v4 though :)
Validity of reason?
Surely any reason I choose not to vote is a 'valid' one, as it's entirely my choice, whether or not I vote.
There's a multitude of reasons I didn't vote, most of them aren't political.
Laziness, Busyness, Genuinely not knowing who to vote for and why, and not being educated enough in exactly what I would be voting for ... a new prime minister? Not really. I'm voting to elect an MP for my constituency (which obviously in turn effects who is elected).
I have no idea who those people are (apart from what i've seen in the spam stuffed in the letter box every morning), the only people I've heard about is Brown, Cameron, Clegg and co.
I don't like to think of myself as apolitical because I'm pretty opinionated generally, but I really don't like the current system, or understand enough about it to feel confident in what I'm voting for.
Most people I know are just blindly voting based on their already set views and have been incredibly close minded about what it means for the local constituency as well as long term goals.. speaking of which, one of my short term goals is to not reside in the UK.. another reason I guess that added to the lack of enthusiasm to vote.
Hope this clears things up and the down votes weren't out of ignorance. Feel free to down vote me, but this is just how I currently feel and I'll welcome any responses that would be able to encourage me to vote next time (if I'm in the country).
That I was trying to work last week with an incredibly temperamental internet connection and was highly confused that I couldn't find the offline set up! I didn't receive any notification of this being removed.
Meh.. I like google docs, it generally works ideally for me, but the offline access was one of the main reasons for this.
@ I Like IE8
Like.. I mean.. seriously?
The IE Developer tools are completely useless.. when they work they either don't refresh the source, leave elements highlighted with an ugly blue line, or doesn't actually help. Other than that it normally just crashes itself AND the rest of the browser at the same time.
*wishes IE could handle JS properly*
"No doubt future spacecraft designers will deploy advanced radiation-resistant alloys and magnetic shielding to protect Federation staff from instant death."
Made me chuckle.
As said, I do like the fact that this is all being theorized based on scientific knowledge available now. So potentially stuff could be discovered in the future that blow this all out of the water.
Meh.. so what?
Twitter, Facebook, Myspace and the likes have all had countless bugs in their systems.. it happens to us all! if people are so worried about their information on the internet .. don't bloody put it on the internet.
Great article.. something people should already know, but you laid it out just right.
Why was I expecting...
...loads of photos of Jean-Luc Picard?
This thing won't last I mean, If I can shoot womp rats in my t-16, any old bird could poo in the wrong place and screw the whole thing up.
That's awful programming practice.
That is all.
Spelling mistake on their sign up form... not that I was rushing to sign up or anything... >_>
So technically right, I look at my local CCTV, run out, do some mild crime that gets me a free bed for the night, report it via text, repeat, and get myself a cool £1000 for 3 nights on the town?
... also, do we receive bonus points if we send in an MMS with a screenshot of the crime? I mean, if I was watching and this scene (off of their site); http://interneteyes.co.uk/images/gunman.jpg happened... I would most definitely want some sort of photographic evidence to prove my text was worth the £1000.
"Needless to say, we speak here not of any scenario involving carelessly-roosting chiropterine boudoir intruders inadvertently stifled by human female tophamper in a comedo-tragic cleavage mishap or similar. Rather, the "Great Tits" in question here are peckish birds - of the same ingenious family as the renowned cream-snaffling Blue Tits of old Blighty."
I did chuckle at this. Does sound like you write for Top Gear or something.
