Re: Does it work on Linux?
Well if you're visiting websites on a web server with Java enabled in the browser, then you should be taken out and beaten with a ferret until you are very sore indeed.
Time to leave, but where...Gah!
been with them from pretty much the day they launched by us, 100% uptime, never had to phone up for any issues, never, not once!
Sky / Virgin and several others charge almost triple the price for adsl where I live, Orange are shit (sued them for failure to deliver service), just leaves BT really: <Insert Deity> help me!
The issue isn't really the plugin, it's the f'ing 8.1mb file size to see a 2 page document becuase some numpty has directly copied a photo from their camera in it.
Does this get over that?
Re: Feed the children Microsoft crack whilst young....
I agree, teach them using Open Office and Linux, then when they hit the real world where 99% of businesses use MS Office they will be as useless at that, as many other things you teach them in school.
This Mr Teacher is what happens when people live in the academic world and not the business world, they live in a fantasy utopia that lives in the land of theory and ideal scenarios and not reality.
Don't worry happens at universities as well, if not more.
I'm happy for them to have a mix to open their eyes, but to exclude MS completely is just a stupid, stupid move.
you have to pay for Open Zone unless you mad enough to have BT broadband
Re: You get what you pay for
The non-profit community Internet Cafe I help run has 40mb, not bad for a little village, coffee's not bad either, but no beer I'm afraid.
welcome to video over the internet
Why the downvote for this reply
because this forum is more and more getting occupied by dickheads
"while a phone tapped against the fridge can present recipe suggestions based on what's in the appliance."
So every single item, including your fruit & veg, has to have a RFID tag, that automatically updates to allow for you using half a pack, and then come up with the great idea of sausages on their own (as the bread is in a different vendors bread bin) and the sauce is in the non RFID cupboard.
Welcome to the new RFID waste mountain.
Re: Ofcom misses the point
Sorry, but I won't follow shortend URL's, what with them being notorious for spam and malware linking.
Ironic isn't it?
Why prat around with the god awful Asterisk?
Just get a basic ATA (analogue telephone adapter) and set it up to your chosen SIP provider. Heck a lot of broadband routers have ATA's built in.
Still probably need the landline unless you have a broadband only setup.
oh and the quality will be hit and miss, what with the public Internet having no QoS and all that.
On the flip side....
...we were told late 2012 and it arrived mid 2012.
Still I've no need for it, so happy to pay a few quid a month for 2mb (ish)
Re: wishful thinking
because you dared point out to the rabid Linux nutjobs that an article by someone with a vested interest in seeing Open Source grow, may be slightly biased.
See it's like me pointing out, that still after a decade of people declaring 20xx being the year of the Linux desktop, it still barely registers on the stats.
Re: I wonder how many installations are simply as the machine came?
Go back, research about secure boot requirements for Win8 and check your facts.
1. Secure boot is not needed for x86 or x64 machines
2. It's only a requirement for Win8 RT machines.
3. You can override the secure boot to allow other OS to run (but RT won't), by simply turning it off.
4. You can use a secure boot compliant version of "Linux"
Tell you what I'll start the process:
I've an idea....
"These APIs are for vehicle drivers, and applications will therefore be limited to those appropriate to someone whose primary focus is on the road."
So an app that detects that you are pissing around with the stereo or you keep looking at it's screen to see what it's doing, at which point it goes blank and a voice shouts "Look at the bloody road you moron!" (Patent pending)
Re: Fine BT for calls
Earth calling Bob....
And how do you expect BT and other to know every single number in the world and if it is a "nuisance" call.
That timeshare company in Florida, calling Misses Miggins, did she sign up for a timeshare whilst on holiday in Florida last year or not? How do BT know?
And say in your grand plan, the magic pixies did create a magic white and blacklist for the entire world (including mobiles), do you think BT will suffer or the end customer?

Well trolled, so I will bite my little bridge dweller.
As Samsung have been making UDTV's for a few years now, it shows that you believe Apple marketing machine, in that they invent everything and everyone copies.
Re: Let me get this straight... @Lost all faith...
Neil why on earth do you think I'm referring to you? You're one of the few people that can grasp the concept, it's the idiots referring to Windows and and how xyz program had windows before MS came along.
Re: Let me get this straight... @Neill Mitchell
People REALLY don't get it....despite it being incredibly easy to grasp.
I could launch a car brand called "Wheels". Just because every fucking car in the world has wheels, in no way does it stop me having a BRAND called "Wheels". If I tried to to stop people putting wheels on their car, or said they now had to be referred to as round floor contact devices, then I would deserve to be shot down in a ball of flames, but otherwise my brand is valid.
Any good tech sites where the IQ in forums is above 3?
Re: So what do you say to Microsoft
Sorry, but I may have to down vote, as you have disobeyed the Reg Forum rules.
Rule 1. Though shalt only comment on devices you have never used.
Rule 2.Though shalt only comment on devices you have never used. you have an irrational hatred of, based purely on what you have read on other forums, based in fact or not. (ideally not)
Rule 3. Though shalt never post postive comments. If the device is good, you still must slag off an alternative device in order maintain the bile fuelled hatred on El reg.
Re: Trevor Pott is a Bad Person and should be eaten by vendors - expert
There goes the sound of irony flying past your head....blinkered by the fury that is within yourself.
Re: Bit confused...
here, not hard.
Apple are publishing the content, which HAS to be vetted (so cannot claim it's an un-moderated site).
Apple are making profits from above copyright theft.
It had been notified of the infringement, but did nothing.
Therefore Apple are responsible for what happens in their app store, but choose to put profits before responsibility.
Bit like driving the getaway car in a bank robbery, but claiming you didn't actually steal any money, so your innocent and you should go after the ones with guns.
Re: Why can't they just be honest?
Don't try, commentards don't quite grasp this concept.
I could easily open a curtain making business and call it Windows or a shoe repair shop and call it Apple or a chair cushion called iPad.
So long as it is in no way confusable with the other item, then there is no issue (although the large megacorps try to bully others into giving it up)
Re: Why live in the Past whenever the Future is whatever IT decides to show y'all is not impossible.
Yes but we know that in last days of the 19th century, life did travel to earth from Mars , despite the chances of it being a million to 1, but we know how that ended for them.....
Re: Windows is bad, so is PHP
Ok Eadon ,we get it. You need to mention Windows in every article, even if in no way is it related (.htaccess is used more Linux boxes than IIS servers, but let's ignore that). But you know what, I reckon your a closet MS lover, bit like those homophobic MP's that turn up in the gutter press with a ball gag in their mouth and a butt plug rammed where the sun don't shine.
Admit, you secretly luurve MS....go on, we won't mock you...feel the love.
MS and Eadon sitting in a tree,,,,,
I just wonder...
how much law making time would be saved by them not having to come up with stupid acronyms that have to spell something related to the bill.

Nice to see the usual uniformed stuff when it comes to VoIP
I was going to write a long rant on about idiots running business calls on broadband and POT lines, but you know what, I leave this analogy:
You have a trusty old Ford Sierra, been ticking along for years, it's ok, but not quite as good as the new super shiny stuff. So you buy an engine from a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and shoe horn it into the same old car.
Then you go racing off and at 170 miles an hour, the wheels fall off and the gearbox drops out; you go into the nearest ditch, in a big ball of flames.
That Bugatti engine? What a load of crap!
VoIP on crap infrastructure = Crap Calls, End Of.
Spoilt for choice...
depends on your signalling protocol, but if Q931 (along with many others except DPNSS), I reckon you can't beat an Audiocodes Mediant.
Our 2000's may get a boot every year or so, when we decide we want to upgrade the firmware....that reminds me, one hasn't been booted in 2 years. Time for an upgrade :-)

Re: Seems like an easy fix.
After 30 years of work, I've just invented a portable cold fusion device. To build a working device based on my details will cost £10m for the 1st prototype.
So now what?
A) Hand over plans to megacorp and get screwed over?
B) Throw plans in bin
c) Give lifetime work away free?

Re: patents are for satan worshippers
Well done, never seen someone so ignorant of the real world in my life (at let's face it, there's a lot of competition on here).
Let take someone like GSK.
Their annual research budget is in the region of £4-5billion, not £4-5, or £4-5000 but £4-5 BILLION (a bigger budget than most nations as a whole spend on R&D)
Now scrap all the patents as some retard may think is a great plan.
So, for example the have spent £20billion on a cure for cancer over several years, and release a very expensive drug (even if they sold it for as little as £100 each they would never make the money back).
However little factory in Pakistan or China, decides to clone it and as they have spent FA on R&D can sell it for £10 a pill, pretty much stopping all sales of GSK's product.
So do tell, why on earth would someone like GSK spend billions on a product, when they know it will most likely put them out of business? As a result, we don't get the cures for cancer, HIV, or the next Flu epidemic.
So come on Genius, without patents, fix this issue?
Re: Said it before
Oh you are really total stupid or ignorant?
"Nobody is going to die because there is no FRAND in IP either. but it is there isn't "
So next time you call the emergency service for a heart attack victim using your mobile phone, connecting to the Mobile carriers network, which in turn may pass through 2 or 3 other carriers network, received by the operator, typed on a computer,sent over the network to the Ambulance station, who radio the crew, who jump in the ambulance and navigate to the scene to find you giving hearth resuscitation to "Staying Alive" on your cd player, which you learnt of your Digital TV.
Thank goodness there are no devices using FRAND in that little set up.
