That is all.
He even has the name wrong and is living in the past. ASP.NET is not ASP they are two totally different things.
What they mean is, "I don't like AOL so it must be dying".
I don't like them either, but you'll be surprised at the amount of people that do.
Isn't Skylon a spaceplane, not a rocket and therefore not the equivalent?
Oooh, and did I mention my 100 Mb's pipe?
Yes, yes you did you complete and utter ********!
Not really a viable option on eBooks as you can change the size. I know it was a troll and arrggghhhh.... it's got me.
Well the new website they have up at least works faster then the rubbish they had before where you had to go make a cup of tea between each click.
Perhaps that's what they mean by "cloud"
...most of those different ways, being owned by Google, perchance?
Don't be silly, there's the yellow pages, the BT Phone book, asking a neighbour (may or may not be a part of the Google Empire) and don't forget 118!
Edit: nearly forgot the bloke down the pub!
I'm guessing if budget is non-existant they probably aren't paid to do the updates out of hours either.
That was what I was going to ask, what size company and on top of that budget are we talking here?
Why are 32bit applications holding you back? Yes 2008 is 64bit only but that is the Operating system. The OS can run 32bit applications, that is what SysWow is for.
Profits put before customers by Redmond again means they'll have diminishing customer numbers with every cycle.
I do have to say about this line, Profits, yes businesses need that to survive and is why they exsit and people have jobs etc. People that are still using a 12 year old operating system are not customers. They paid a very small amount for 12 years of support.
I have a single 2003 server that I have not yet moved over, there is no reason really except that I've been busy/lazy. Must get on with that.
Edit: James Turner got in there with the WOW stuff while I was typing.
'Open source' is about as definitive as 'real soon now'. It could be anything from GPL to blatant trap.
So you go straight to 'Trap' without waiting to see what occurs rather than actually looking at the direction Microsoft do seem to be taking now-a-days?
I heard this on the radio driving in to work. Was not really paying much attention but it sounded like they had just played a numbers game to me.
And from this write up, it looks like I was right, another game of making up numbers. No wonder we cannot actually get to the bottom and agree on what is really happening to our planet.
website from the 1990's will be yours.
The service may be good, but that website really needs an update.
It may not be magnetic in and of itself but, do magnetic fields change when in it's presence?
Edit: I've just read that because bronze is a good electrical conductor a changing magnetic field can create eddy's in the bronze. This would seem a good way, assuming these eddy patterns are unique to bronze, would be a good way to find bronze. Not sure how true this is though.
Because all parents are as understanding of technology as all us that read these pages?
Ask a parent to set up filters and firewalls on their own so their children can't get access to anything unwanted. It's hard enough for those of us that do understand to get certain things blocked but others not blocked and having different settings for different users.
On the other hand you might be one of these people that thinks a parent can be watching over their children's shoulders 24 hours a day. Or maybe one of them that thinks you can have children grow up in this world and not touch the Internet until they are an adult and can actually consent to what they end up seeing.
There are things that I would like to block from my children that the set up of the Internet makes very hard without some central rating body rating all they can. Even then they cannot rate everything.
I don't agree with the filters and do not have them active, they should be off by default but available, to spout off that it's the parents fault is disingenuous at best.
Where's your joke icon?
Looks more like a brush to me. And I want one of them fancy ladders that can telescope to the height needed to write the top letters.
Also the blending of the paint is rubbish, he needed to get some quality paint so as not to get that blurring effect.
It said the scheme also had the potential to create an incentive for BT to reduce the scope of its commercial investments in order to receive state funding for projects that would still be commercially viable without the aid.
Yep,happened at my cabinet. It was on BT's rollout plans (commercial) 2 years ago. Our authority got the government money and all of a sudden our cabinet was not viable. Our local scheme did not include our cabinet because it was on BT's commercial rollout. Now BT are only considering it because the local authority is trying to tack it on the end of their rollout.
We may still never see it, BT are most certainly doing the scope reduction thing with us.
Is this lack of diversity? Do they need to hire in equal amounts across all of these? Should any company do this?
What ever happened to hiring the best person for the job whomever they may be?
This is what Kickstarter is good at! Allowing people to put money into projects like this that we would not normally hear about as it would all be done in academic circles.
I wish this project well.
What if the only "hack" is client side? In that you are just modifying the data on your "own" system. As I understand it, that is how many of these doohickys work.
The problem is that a hack on the client side affects the server. All of the problems you describe provide false information to the server thus changing the servers data from what it "should" be. The client does not exist in isolation with these systems, they are interconnected.
Err... yes, analogue!
Don't you dare try and pin it on that poor innocent program WordPress!
You do realise it said many times through the article that the options for the full fat server are still there for those that need it?
The idea being that when you feel safer you become more complacent.
So we should make car seats out of razor blades. Also just say there is an airbag when there is not for 1 in a 100.
You'd drive safe just in case it was yours ;)
Other ideas welcome, it's too early for me.
The cat had it!
Root means the same here when used in that way, it's just, you know; we know the difference between a bit or hardware and a Woman!
The exclusive economic zone is 200mi so 80km is well within that for California let alone the islands.
According to the wiki that rules them all this zone is mistaken as or at least used to be known as the territorial waters. In any case it still gives the "owner" certain rights, economic ones as you might expect which IMO would include things such as a wreck.
Read the wiki, it's quite informative http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territorial_waters
Did Google it have the same ring all them years ago? I don't think it did. It's the same with everything that becomes a household name, the ring is there because of it's ubiquitous use.
128TB at that price bargin!
More importantly, what app do we need to avoid?
The Register has contacted Apple and and is awaiting a response.
Good luck el'Reg, maybe just maybe this time they will!
Back on to the story surely with the control over the hardware and ecosystem Apple could lock this down tighter than a... well tight thing.
I would like to know more about the "hacks" and why oh why did they not recover the money from the students that did not hand them back? Please don't say they were leaving that up to Apple too rather than knowing who they were handing out the expensive toys to?
It sounds like you have a much bigger budget than most of us.
Not when the telephone poles are stuck along the hedgeline (unlike a lot of mobile towers) and still have no power requirement or foundations.
Especially if a similar footprint such as a telephone pole costs BT effectively fuck all.
Erm, let's see.
A cell tower has foundations, equipment compound, electricity supply and site access needed.
A telephone pole has, well a hole in the ground.
How is that the same thing?
Is that pronounced Giga or Jiga?
So you joined in Feb 2015 (just over two weeks ago) and your already bored with something that has been going on for at least 5 years.
Learn the history behind the El'Regs attitude towards Apple. I'm not going to tell you because you are obviously to lazy to find it yourself.
Students registering for this course will be asked to verify their identity and to pay for the course.
A $200 Fee Required.
The above is from the Powershell Course. So $200 not $90.
Because building the spaceport here first, specifically designed to meet the needs of these new vehicles would then encourage development here and make people doing it the other way round rent our facilities.
So you lie to your customers, nice one.
Content for the new app will, allegedly, work the other way around. Everything is banned until it has been approved for YouTubeKidz or whatever they call it
So why the new app? Just put a tick box in the normal youtube to make it work like this?
At the moment I have 2 streams enabled for my child as they are very good and know their audience is young. But before their streams got big there are a few videos that are risqué in the language department.
Why is a specific app needed for this? Surely a few lines of code will do.
<is account under a certain age>
<has video been tagged child safe by our safety team>
<insert sweetie ads instead of normal ads>
I'm sorry, but that sample over that many countries is tiny. How is it supposed to represent anything?
well, there's a difference between giving a model the benefit on a shoot where her chin might have been a bit spotty, and taking 6 inches off her waistline.
There is? Not in my eyes!
If you want a model with no spots or a model with a certain waist size then go out and find them. Both are still a lie. Young girls and boys think they must be abnormal because they are hardly ever without spots or some other ailment they think makes them not the "normal" as these pics show.
I think models should be shot in whatever state they are in, surely it's not the model we are meant to be looking at but the product?
So your saying that a "bribe" must be offered to the employee so that they actually stick to what they agree to?
I'm sure there's a name for something like that, mmmmm, extortion maybe? Might you be advocating more illegal acts to stop another illegal act?
Not saying the poaching thing is right, or that they have given the "secrets" away. But advocating extortion is not a free market idea.
Thanks to Windows there are quite a few people with that mindset, however.
Also thanks to Windows, those "quite a few" probably don't have the know-how to root their phones as they made it easy to use a computer. Quite a conundrum huh?
I had assumed you were a tech user. But ignoring the fact that a switch off and on again is a resolution to a lot of tech problems is just ignorance and is what I would expect from a non-tech hence I parodied you.
I did say in my post that Sky are wrong here, in their closed eco-system it should not have occurred as they control everything. This is not the same with anything that involves Software as you insinuated. I have yet to see a piece that does not have bugs that interact poorly with other software hence the first thing to try is? It is not the final resolution in a lot of cases but it is a way to get the person running again while you can figure out what is causing the problem. And that appears (now Sky have admitted the problem) to be what is happening here.
And WTF Sky? Turn it off and on again!?! This is 2015 not 1995. Standard cop-out answer from "technical" support that knows less about tech than a Neanderthal.
Sounds to me like a standard response from a non-tech user. Yes in this case Sky is having a laugh, but you will not believe how many times (even in 2015) a turn it off and on again will solve the "problem" and stops wasting my time more than the 30 secs required to do something the person using said equipment (whatever that may be) should have done.
They will be pleased if it is not their out of warranty box which needs repairing or replacing as they have been led to believe.
This is what I was thinking it was a faulty box. I've even replaced the HDD in case that was causing the errors, although I wanted to for a bigger storage space anyway. Sky just tell you to reset which is useless advice and a factory reset will lose all your recordings so is bad advice.
We have lost so many recordings because of this, luckily most of them were on catch up and have been noticed. I'm dreading going through the series that I have recorded but not had time to check. There might be some big gaps.
Did PNG's suddenly get cross browser animation capability? As far as I am aware only GIF is the low cost file format that can do this.
