Ok enlighten me.
"The successful candidate will have experience of a technical integration in a public sector environment".
Why, what is so magical about the public sector environment? I can think of a lot of sarcastic reasons, but I'd like to know the genuine reasoning behind lines like that, other than some HR droids copy / paste recruitment technique.
Re: I laughed...and then I cried
It is truly crap, only use it for spammy type mailing lists.
Still could be worse, it could be like their "News" which consists of little more than publicity whores and football.
Re: Dunno whats worse
Re: Cue panic
...you could simply turn on the power saving features of your devices. e.g shutting down the WIFI when you not using it, say while in bed or at the office.
I can confirm that Bluecoats K9 does the same thing, if you don't change https to http for Google image search, it can't be locked to filter content.
Re: "push back and take action now before it happens"
"This conflict has been going on since before the Crusades."
You may want to look up what religion did the Crusades. While you are at it, look how relatively well Muslims and Christians co-existed prior to this and also the reasoning behind it.
"often showing the offences after they’ve actually occurred, thereby leaving us very little opportunity to subsequently investigate,”
Well, despite your best efforts to lock people up BEFORE they have committed an offence, that tends to be what happens.
Or is just just because it's Russian?
No doubt we and the US have chucked up loads of satellites we don't tell anyone about.
Stephen king and no Family Guy link?
Apologies for the quality. Nothing to do with me.
Re: so where is the cheap optical NIC
That would be Thunderbolt Optical.....but the cable prices may make your eyes water.
...boring, but going by the line up on the website, a games console. Most likely some Andriod thingy.
Re: Did I miss something?
Are humans so self-obsessed that we want to force others to listen to our taste in music at any/every given opportunity?
Yes, and I'll appreciate it if they turned off Shit Pirate Radio FM when I get in the cab.
...why wasn't it air-gapped, super-locked down firewalled, <insert other completely unusable for any normal work bright idea>....just to prove that reader has no concept of how the real world works.
Isn't GiffGaff owned by Telefonica running on O2, who happen to be a subsidiary of Telefonica?
So hardly "off the wall".
Re: they're doing sharing wrong
but that relies on an always on connection, or at least turning it on, connecting it up and then taking ownership. The great thing about ereaders is the battery life and portability. You'd be miffed if you were on a flight only to find your account is "locked".
However it's a reasonable idea otherwise.
Re: What about Public Libraries?
My 92yr old mother has never used it.
Blimey, if she's applying for child tax credits, she either sprightly old girl or a master con-artist.
Re: When you assist aunty to buy a computer I suggest you also
Of course the way to attack this is take 1 new fresh machine from shop. Connect to internet, download pcdecrapifier and blitz the heap o'crap out of there..
That would be the most basic ones on the planet...half decent ones look for a pulse and blood vessels
Re: An actual outcome of this...
yes, but that wouldn't fit in with Lewis' predictable nay-saying.
Yes as soon as I read the strapline I knew it was one of his articles.
" the card security code (CVC or CVV2) would be required to transact business.”"
Phew that's at least a hundred billion combinations.
What? It's only 3 digits long, but that's only.....Arrgggghhhh?
..I pay you €12,000 for you to put your kit in my building and in return I get to save about a couple of hundred euros a year.
How about you pay ME €12,000 to provide a secure place to put your racks and in return any savings I make on heating, minus the costs incurred cooling the place during the summer, and I'll rebate that amount.
Sounds little fairer to me.
Re: Fine print
it's a bit like "New Recipe" same outcome, just less content.
".....Hachette would get the rights to set prices for its books with what Amazon said was a 'financial incentive' to keep prices on ebooks down."
OK here is what I want.
Hachette say this is our wholesale price.
Amazon go this is the price we will sell at.
If Hachette want to sell their books at a wholesale price no one wants to pay, so be it.
If Amazon want to make Zero profit on a book, so be it.
Well that explains....
..some of the posts on here,
Is this EE or Apple we are talking about?
Re: Sounds like Vodafone is unhappy
I'd rather push a button that says "I'm sick of CrappyCellCo, its time to try someone else"
And does that get you out of the contract? No thought not.
And what when you say "I want to to choose Tesco Mobile" Apple turn round and say, sorry device not compatible?
What about when my iDevice is broken because I thought the iOS upgrade made it waterproof and I want to bang the SIM in my old phone? Oh look I'm fucked over again.
"In that case, 43 per cent of parents felt the negatives outweigh the positives, although that figure drops significantly to 26 per cent for those parents that have actually allowed their child to have one."
WTF, seriously....who makes these up.
In another survey, parents are worried about their kids getting fat, except those that allow their kids to eat cake for breakfast with a doughnut chaser, with a dose of pizza and chips for lunch and evening meal of KFC and McD's.
...I never knew we still employed artists from the 50's to do our designs.....
Hers' the new transport layout just around the corner.
You guys fall for it every time.
Icon, because it's appropriate.
Re: First/Final Mile
Virgin's last mile network covers around half the UK.
Possibly by population, not geography.
Re: Its come to something
Yes and it's this sort of thing UKIP will leave us wide open to....
To be fair(ish)
you went on the Monday, which is the fluffy day, surely the Wednesday would make more sense?
Unnamed US government sources have told reporters that Chinese state-backed hackers are to blame for the intrusion.
Well it's OK to do this as it's on foreign soil and no doubt someone has sent something illegal via the post.
,,,she very quickly worked out that by getting hitched to this guy, she would be taking on his massive debit and irresponsible attitude to money and went err no thanks....
it's Tyrolean grey cheese , not green cheese. I don't know, what are you lot like? Can you not tell the difference between colours?
Re: If it...
...looks like english, sounds like english and reads like a english,
Or a post by RISC OS which appears to not follow any grammatical rules of English.
The direction is clear: Serco will concentrate on its core as a leading supplier of public services…
because no matter how many time we fuck them over, they still keep coming back....
Some people took to Twitter to grumble after noticing the auction site had been hammered.
Giving us opportunity to pad out an otherwise short article.
Re: It all depends
It's already paid for.
Re: Not a lard arse
"even Bill gates has some really weird half baked ideas that he pursues with his foundation, such as the key to overpopulation being to provide the world with super thin condoms."
And what's wrong with that? Along with the contraceptive pill that they give out to women is a great idea.
You may want to look up the Bill and Melissa talk on TED, it may enlighten you a bit. Many African women don't want to have 10 kids, but are so scared of their husbands they have little choice. If you can get a) the men to wear condoms, or b) the women get access to contraception, then of course the birth rates will drop.
Unless you have a better plan? Please I'd love to hear it.....
Re: Ah, so that's what all the "darknet" propaganda was about.
"was a switch outage. When I looked at the camera footage at the time they were obviously completely re-patching my server."
To a switch that was still working perhaps?
Sometimes the most obvious answer is the correct one.
I gave up on Opera due the issue using a proxy with exceptions. Every other browser could happily handle wildcards, but Opera's attitude seemed to be, "can't be arsed to sort this". Not sure if they've fixed it in the last year, gave up trying.
Yes they would be the ones that didn't know what a bar code was so the 200,000 items on the shelves had to be priced (and repriced) by hand.
"Music is less well served. Fire TV connects to Amazon’s cloud music service, which means anything you bought from Amazon MP3, auto-rip CDs (you buy the CD and Amazon automatically adds the MP3s), and up to 250 other tracks manually uploaded"
1. It's not manually in the sense of copy / paste, you can choose a folder and synch it.
2. If you have the Cloud Player subscriptions you can have 250,000 songs.
Re: I remember
"Blame the teaching of product-specific IT at schools for that."
Yes darn the education system providing them with real world skills.
Like or not the VAST majority of businesses use MS products.
Re: Don't piss yourself, iOS-device owners
So you are saying Apple users are so smart, they won't click allow?
So to clarify this for me as I want to understand these amazing people that buy Apple products....they read the permissions of any App from the app store they install and still have accepted that their personal contacts, images and phone calls and god knows what else be shipped of to some unknown location in some foreign land?
So prey tell, who is the smartest, the one that agrees to giving away all their own (and others) personal information or the ones that blindly click any box they see so they can play the latest freemium game?
Re: Power problems?
Next you'll be telling me there are clockwork radios or plans for low cost solar panels for just such areas.
Re: Not a panacea
"Programs like providing tractors to help plough fields fail, because nobody can service tractors, fix stuff"
Well you just shot down your own argument.
Programs like providing tractors to help plough fields fail, because nobody can service tractors, but now they can look up how to repair a broken prop shaft. Added to the fact they can now learn about better farming techniques and how to utilize what little resources they have, they can now have more food on the table. As there is now food on the table, the children can spend a little more time l, which thanks to some donated computers and an internet connection, they are able to gain access to better reading material. Now the children are better educated, they can bring more money into the family, helping out their now aging parents......
Of course the "3rd world" countries such as India have never benefited by having fancy things like internet for twitter and pointless computers.
