Yes, but a huge chunk is passed from mother to child.
"I knew then that being the leader of a company was something that I desired as part of my own leadership journey"
Neither of which seem to have the ability to use upper case characters or punctuation.
And are they like the cheap Android tablet I had that became useless after about 12 months (a common issue on the cheap kit)
Would that be the Adblock that allows advertisers to buy their way in unless you go in and remove them?
..is 2003 EoL?
I never saw a single article here on the reg about it!
"On May 12, 2015, Verizon Communications announced plans to buy AOL for $50 per share in a deal valued at $4.4 billion. The acquisition was completed on June 23."
"The deal will broaden Verizon's advertising sales platforms and increase its video production ability through websites such as The Huffington Post, TechCrunch, and Engadget"
Hardly dead in the water eh?
Not strcitly true...
"Ensure that all system components and software are protected from known vulnerabilities by installing applicable vendor supplied security patches. Install critical security patches within one month of release"
6.2.a Examine policies and procedures related to security patch installation to verify processes are defined for:
Installation of applicable critical vendor-supplied security patches within one month of release.
Installation of all applicable vendor-supplied security patches within an appropriate time frame (for example, within three months).
Note there are two flaws with this if you go by the letter of the rules:
1. You cannot use 3rd party supplied patches, so if a trusted 3rd party creates a fix, but the vendor does not, you are in breach if you use the patch,
2. There is NOTHING in the documentation to say what happens if the vendor does NOT supply a patch.
I'm not saying you shouldn't move away, but pointing out the point the reference material does not explicitly say what to do with EoL products.
"PCI DSS Requirement 6.2 says that system components and software must be protected from known vulnerabilities by installing applicable vendor-supplied security patches within one month of release."
So if none are released, you can't be in breach of that rule (actually even that above is over simplified)
Several villages have it as well. If you look at Worcestershire's details it actually to cover areas not deemed financially viable and does not cover commercial areas i.e. towns and cities.
I guess that he actually got the down votes for proposing flywheels are a viable solution.
Look at how much renewable would be needed for say somewhere like London during the winter months and how much land you would need to actually power that 24/7.
...it "accidentally" recorded some people out of a pool of what, a few thousand?
So how many have "accidentally" been collected out of a pool of 65 million? Have all those ones been deleted as well?
Self confessed audiophile?
wharfdale diamond speakers?
Didn't even need to finish the 1st section.
It's most likely what in the old days was called "FTP" or "SFTP".
But that's not trendy enough.
At layer 3? Good look with that.
woossshhh despite the joke icon, some things still go flying overhead.
good, and for the 99.99% of the rest of the world who are not Techies?
That's an issue with shity, piss poor written software. Not Windows.
Blame the software writer for being an half arsed amateur, not MS.
I haven't had DLL issues in years.
"Personally, I've been violently opposed to automatic bricking "updates" at least since the time when the Content® manufacturing industry coerced Nvidia and Microsoft to push an "update" that deliberately disabled DVD playback on machines with certain graphics cards."
Where is Microsoft mentioned in that article, other than a bug in the media player?
...people see the gold fish floating on it's side and motionless and presume it's dead.
9/10 times they have a swim bladder issue and can be "resurrected" by simply cleaning the tank out for a change and treating it.
And how many people realise goldfish can easily live to 20+ years if looked after?
Don't forget gathering all that yummy data and passing onto those willing to pay for it.
What is this, the year 2000?
3, or more please.
...but the stupidity of people that do what random other people tell them to do via social media.
They do share, it's just not in any sort of joined up thinking kind of way.
...MixRadio, but with Ad's.
..google can track you, no matter where you are.
If you want to use a pizza analogy, then the buying a pizza and not eating it is wrong.
Closer would be an all you can eat buffet. The shop offers a pig yourself stupid for £9.99
The pizza maker gets paid per slice eaten.
Those that make good pizza's get paid well.
Those that make crap pizza's, not so well.
Doesn't seem so unfair if using that analogy does it?
I thought that, but it's not books that are sold, just subscription models....I think
...it will filter out the utter dross that is out there.
I sort of get the idea behind it..if you write a great book, that is 500 pages long and everyone reads the whole book, why should you get paid the same as someone who writes a load of crap that is 50 pages long and people can't get past page 2.
So I sort of get it, but then again, I can see the argument against it.
I'm going to sit on the fence on this one.
I dunno, some people may just want to use that stonking great screen in their lounge instead of a little piddly one on their lap.
And I'd hardly call and I7 with 16gb RAM low end
Depends what you want, but a reasonable Mico-ITXboard running an AMD processor (these can be happier to run fanless) can be had for a good price on eBay these days.
Build from scratch, as the 2nd hand prebuilt ones go for a premium.
Would that be the single version that is, for example, Mint:
Cinnamon No codecs 32 Bit
Cinnamon No codecs 64 Bit
Cinnamon OEM 32 bit
Cinnamon OEM 64 bit
MATE 32 Bit
MATE 64 Bit
MATE No codecs 32 Bit
MATE No codecs 64 Bit
MATE OEM 32 bit
MATE OEM 64 bit
KDE 32 Bit
KDE 64 Bit
Xfce 32 bit
Xfce 64 bit
So glad only one to chose from....
Oh silly me I forgot LMDE variation of MINT.
MATE 32 Bit
MATE 64 Bit
If Santander or any credit company are reporting you for a single missing payment, then you need a better bank, most won't report until at least 3 missed payments.
You have no idea how it works do you?
I bet most people didn't even know Apple were launching a streaming service, now they do.
"And that's why I know some IT managers who've banned Windows Phone altogether."
That's because they are idiots that listen to the likes of you.
Nokia 635 (personal phone), got updated again at the weekend (already running the latest version)
Samsung S3 (work phone), still waiting after how many years? Despite huge amount of known Vulns, it's still waiting for any updates.
Both on EE
Tell me which is the more secure again?
Any website running on unpatched software.
"Frankly, I'd settle for an easily available board to make it ITX compatible."
So why not buy and ITX system ad have done with it...sheeezzz.
What is point to point?
0 - 100 - 0 and back again, your right a GTR is the one you want, but not the one you are thinking of:
But you may want the new improved model:
Not the massive database breach they discovered a week or so ago that they failed to notice for a year or more.
And how is Google better?
Both are advertising agency obsessed with tracking your every move.
Maybe for a sales bod, but for me, and most techies in this office 15 to 17" please....and then it's a struggle unless dual screened up.
"he specs are usually awful for the price. "
Really? So £199 plus £30 rebate for reasonable spec HP laptop is bad?
I use Wiki, but have not donated. Until they are more transparent I have no intention of doing so.
The same reason I don't give to 90% of charities that I would otherwise consider.
Going by the figures it was some time ago, when fibre splicing was an art form and often done from cab to end point. And who says it was their land?
We've had ISDN's take weeks to fix in the past.
...clearly, as always the case round here, people like to slag something iff they don't have a fuckign clue about.
1. Cortana is EASY to turn of. You click the button.
2. IT DOES NOT NEED YOU TO TALK TO IT. You can just type.
3. IT DOES NOT NEED TO TALK TO YOU. It can pop up alerts or just sit there as a live tile.
It is simply a organiser with a simple interface, so you can be reminded you need to go to a meeting in 30 minutes and you need to leave now, or pick up the milk on the way home, or the local boozer is doing a 2 for 1 on Loopy Jacks Ale.
Don't like it, don't use it....it's that simple people.
I like it, so I use it, but it doesn't spend half the day talking to me.
How to remove?
Click the button to turn it off....
But I guess your used to a 3000 word cmd line?
I think you missed the irony.
