Clearly they haven't been recommending well enough if still on XP
Re: Sorry - not where I live
I've never got the reason why buying from farm shops is dearer than the supermarket.
You've cut out the transport, the packaging, the middleman's cut and the retailers cut and a mass of other inline losses.
Re: Adverts on Gmail?
Would that be the Adblock Plus that Google doesn't allow on it's Play site? And you know what Google and commentards say about downloading from untrusted sources....
Re: Lost all faith...
"blocking websites carrying out illegal activity"
Blasphemy is a criminal offence in Pakistan, so you've fallen over there haven't you?

Clearly you don't go to Apple releases.
Re: subtitle on horsemeat
They read it on the internet, so it is true...
Now as for vegetarians eating refined sugar....lol.
Lest not forget a large proportion of FAST members are law companies.
Re: Not Engineering
A good story about the NS10m and why I never used them. They were simply a fairly average monitor to reproduce the sound of a fairly average home speaker.
You forgot your joke icon.
Re: A good whine
Dom Perignon and Lidl's cheapest......
Actually I think you'll find it's the "experts" that tell can't the difference....the rest of us can, we just look at the price and go, yup, that one.
Re: Wow! That many people moved to KDE or XFCE?
"Windows 7/Vista is essentially a KDE 4.X clone."
On 11 May 2007, KDE 4.0 Alpha 1 was released marking.....
PCs. Prior to its announcement on July 22, 2005, Windows Vista was known by its codename "Longhorn". Development was completed on November 8, 2006
So remind me again, who copied who?
This depends if he bought as business user or not. As the below does not cover businesses, who will have their own T&C's.
So he may well of been wrong.
Distance selling act:
Has the trader accepted your offer to buy?
To work out whether the trader has accepted your offer, you'll need to check the following:
The wording of your confirmation email or letter. For example, it might specify that the trader has accepted your offer
The contents of the terms and conditions. For example, they might say when acceptance takes place
*Whether the goods have been dispatched or the service has started. If the goods are dispatched to you or the service starts, it would be safe to assume that the trader has accepted your offer*
If payment has been taken. If payment has been taken from you this *does not necessarily mean acceptance has happened*, but it could be a good indicator.
Not sure how you got a down vote, 8 years is pretty close to 7 years for murder.
Re: What is the purpose of checking another site ?
Disclaimer: I did not read the relevant acts before writing this.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse, especially when there are targets to be met.
Mmmmm the back....
...reminds me of leatherette seats from the 1970's Austin <insert piece of shit rust bucket here>...mmmm hope they do it in beige.
Re: What percentage of eBay shares did Icahn buy?
Bugger all, but as with pretty much everything in life, he who complains loudest, gets their way.
Nope didn't get that pun?
He doesn't clean out, just renames and carries on.
Re: In the mold (mould?) of Bill Gates...
Mudraking, sleaze, lies, shit stiring, ruining peoples lives and general peddling of hatred.....shall I go on.
I'd rather less he retired, more dropped dead.
Re: Danger Will Robinson
Yup, time to call the Lawyers! This is from an earlier copy, but:
1.1 Installation and use. You may install and use one copy of the Software in a single virtual machine on a single computer, such as a workstation, terminal or other device (“Workstation Computer”) that contains a licensed pre-release copy of Windows 7 Ultimate edition, to design, develop and test your programs for use with the Software. Virtualization software is required to use the Software on the Workstation Computer. The Software may not be used by more than two (2) processors at any one time on any single Workstation Computer. You may not use or test the Software in a live operating environment unless Microsoft permits you to do so under another agreement.
I agree, because the millions of ordinary users using are using cmd line,.
Every DC I know of (not many granted) have computer controlled UPS where you can see EXACTLY current demand and by that fact, usage over X period.
No if like they say they have been cutting back on power, surely they would of seen hoped to have seen the bills drop.
That said, in their defence, if finance are simply rubber stamping them, then where does the buck stop?
Wow talk about branching out.....
...last I knew G-tech were making really good vacuum cleaners.
I should point out, for those that don't know, Bromsgrove borders Redditch, a place that had the lovely, honest, truthful Jacqui Smith as the former MP, so we know a thing or two about expenses around here.
Re: That is what you get for using Windows
And don't forget to patch the million and one security holes that the Cisco will have....
As for IOS name, have you been asleep for the last 4 years?
Don't worry about it, if you do have an "independent" system, just shed the lorry load of evidence and all will be well.
Yes but does it play...
Re: The sad things are...
Enlighten us, which patents are they that do this? Everyone wants to know...
How do you know they are software patents?
...now just need to wait for the Iron release
Re: Well that's all right then.
To be fair, he's only continuing the tradition of the government that introduced it.
...I was printing watches* that told you the risk of sunburn 20 years ago, along with stickers that did the same. Needless to say, most were shipped to South Africa and Australia, not much demand in the UK.
*By watches, they were coated PVC wrist straps in the shape of a watch to stop you getting a weird tan line. And no, they couldn't tell the time.
Looks like they still make them.
...grab yourself a copy Windows Steady State, the backbone of libraries and schools for years.
it's hard to find via MS, but there some out there on decent 3rd party sites.
Install,set up policies, turn on Disk protect and bang, a free mini VM. Not that hard to do the basic stuff either, although some tweaks can mess things up (like turning off system tray can bugger up printing).
best of all IT'S FREE.
Deep freeze is good, use it on Win8 machines as Steady State was XP only.
How much will it cost...
...from Brighthouse? We know the target market for stupid size tellies in small houses, so how much?
Re: who stole the filing cabinet from under my nose?
new patents are just a side swipe away ...
So long as it's not a side swipe to unlock, you'll be fine.
Re: An old dog
"I really can't see the point of this. The Pi's processor is slow, limited and obsolete - why would people want to use it in new designs?"
Because your washing machine doesn't need a 8 core processor with 4 gb of RAM?
Re: What has the EU been smoking?
"Well, because VAT is regressive and hits poor people higher than rich people, obviously!"
Really, so a £200,000 Ferrari incurs a lower tax rate than a £200 banger?
20% is 20% no matter how much you pay.
Re: @big_D What's the point?
Do you drive?
Can you find the TDC on your engine?
Thought not. Yet you depend on it.
It's self-centred, obnoxious morons like you that give people in IT a bad name.
Re: Later adopters still get *something*
Sheez....you really are a tight arse...
Still, glad you work for nothing.....
Re: AV for Android
And only the REALLY gullible think there are is no Android malware.
Also what it doesn't say how many of these are simply VM's / Windows 7 XP mode machines, just getting their patches.
May I send some of the dev's involved and commenting on here a copy of Lord of the Flies? Some of the people in the Linux world really seem to have a lack of any social skills....
Exactly my thought, internal use for digital signage or demo suites. I doubt they would take on Sammy in the TV arena.
Re: What happened to
There's this thing call a "Search Engine", examples being Google and Bing.
If you type in say, European GPS, you may find what you are looking for.
Good job you are not posting this on a technical site, you may get laughed at.
Unless of course you are attempting to be ironic.
Gah...what the bloody hell are those Edison and Tesla fellows doing messing around, spending millions on those stupid electrical things when there are poor people in the world, many who are dropping dead from cold and hunger.
"We didn't sell any of our data; we sold someone else's data via a subsidiary we bought".
Thank goodness for that, I feel so much better.
PS Barclay's, despite my phone calls to your useless Indian call centre, still getting the credit card statements for the person that hasn't live at the address for 8 years. Fraud prevention, apparently someone mentioned it once.
Re: Pump the Primes
(And given that Amazon Prime costs $79 in USAland and £79 over here, what's the betting that the hardware will exhibit an equally usurious price-translation, too?...
Sigh how many times......
UK inc. VAT (sales Tax)
US excluding Sales tax.
$95.99 when you add UK VAT rate of 20% to the US prices or £66.99 ex VAT.
The same reason the West does not. Self interest.
How are we doing with allowing free trade with South America and Africa these days?
Well, I had a brand new XP box and deployed to the Middle East.....
I upgraded to Linux.
Shock, fucking horror, an obsolete, 13 year old system is not a secure as a brand new one.......
