"Those who decide to remain on the Windows XP platform will be pretty much defenceless against these attacks unless third-party security solutions, such as Network-based Intrusion Prevention System (NIPS) and Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) are in use"

Is anyone actually using XP, or in fact any version of windows, without a software or hardware firewall not made by MS between them and the internet?!?!?

WOW, IE won't render a competitors search engine correctly !!!!

On a completely unrelated note, not in the slightest way linked to the above, guess we will have to use Bing instead.

Wasn't this from the same company that wanted standards for browsers then blew it off when it actually happened?

"In the US you'd have a hard job actually finding a car with manual transmission, unless it's a sports car imported from Europe."

Oh come on, don't pull that, the corvette is available with manual as are some US manufactured VW's and Subaru's and that's just the ones I've seen myself and I live in the UK for 49 weeks of the year. Just because most US buyers pick the auto option doesn't mean that manual doesn't exist in the US.

Re: @Eadon

"The guys that attack me do not attack my technical analysis, they attack me like you have, for perceived personal failings, i.e. ad hom attacks."

Hmm, where is my attack on you, quoting a response is not an attack on someone. It is listening to what someone says rather than just ignoring them to carry on with a sermon.

At no point did I say:

"Eadon isn't going to listen to anyone else so why should I listen to Eadon"

Whoops

Re: @Eadon

"The reason I am not popular here is that I know exactly what I am talking about from a technical POV, I know my onions."

If you aren't going to listen to anyone else's point of view, but think that you are always right, then why in the hell do you think anyone is going to listen to a word you say.

There's three types of people, those that don't know anything, those that know their stuff but also know they don't know everything and those that think they know it all, but demonstrate time and again that they really don't have a clue.

Options 1 & 2 are easy to get along with, option 3 isn't, as they have a steadfast belief that the world is wrong and they alone, are the only ones that are correct.

But what happens when an option 3 meets another option 3, PARADOX!!!

Bang on

Yes there are a ton of others you could have had, but the 10 you picked were all bang on as far as I'm concerned, all ten have swallowed up their fair share of my time (actually probably much more than that).

Killer Instinct Arcade would be on their if it was my list, the only arcade I have ever 100% finished (even with eyedol) but it's your list not mine so 10/10 :)

LG TV

Don't have a lot of choice right now, since LG hurled lovefilm at us Netflix is no longer a choice, unless I want to watch it via a smaller screen on my Xbox, as they removed it from the dash to make way for lovefilm.

Lovefilm is ok when you get it going but the LG app is awful on the LW650t, it takes 2 mins to load the app (sometimes more) from the dash and forget trying to browse, better to do that on your pc then jump straight to it on the TV. That said, once it gets going it seems fine, so far no pauses even at peak times.

Amazon-bashed HMV calls in administrators, seeks buyer

Re: Wonder how much tax HMV paid

"Amazon avoiding taxis is equivalent to a very rich murderer getting away with it due to a technicality that can only be revealed by a horde of blood sucking parasetical lawyers manuipulating natural lanagage and bending the legalease until they get their vermim off the hook."

Really?!?! You honesty think that's a good comparison, WOW, swinging wildly and making stuff up is very hard to counter with facts, so I'm not even going to bother.

"It doesn't make it right, it makes it 'legal' in a very loose sense (before the loop hole is plugged and deemed illegal a week later)."

Last time I checked legal means legal until it is made illegal. When it is I'll be right behind HMRC for bringing a court case, until that point it is still legal, despite popular opinion.

Re: Wonder how much tax HMV paid

So, if your line of argument is correct then, no doubt, when HMRC last contacted you advising you of your tax code you contacted them and asked them to jack it up a bit as you felt you were not paying enough tax??

Doubt it, no-one wants to pay more tax than they have to, if a company does then that means less money to go around (one of which is less/no pay raise), but I'm sure you would accept that without moaning right?

Re: Assuming it was charging at the time

True, but it has bothered me for a while that you see chargers with higher and higher current outputs. If they shipped this with a beefy enough charger it is possible it could have burnt the tracks. Whatever caused it, it had to have been plugged into something at the time, either the charger or it was tethered.
