Re: Do you know which IT firm Lovell works for? Email me and spill the beans. ®
Ahh your being over protective...lets face it, it's not like his email will be firstname.surname@companyname is it?
Re: A fascinating insight into other cultures ...
Knowing how BCC works, they are likely to dish out Win2000 at £200 a copy (using 150 staff to do so).
Hint for those that don't know, they are only just starting to roll out wheelie bins, a few decades after the surrounding shire counties.
Re: Stop trying to be funny - just make products people want to use.
"it's nice to be able to simultaneously have a discussion about technology and language with people who have intelligence in both."
I think you've been reading a different set of comments than I have been of late.
but they don't seem interested in buying manufacturers per se
well if you exclude semi-conductor makers, computer makers and flash memory makers.
" a card is swiped through the handheld device and a PIN entered - just as any customer would in a restaurant or shop."
Not in the UK.
If they are swiping my card, I want to know why.
Re: Speaking as an MS.. fan.. well long term user
or fail to point out that installing this may obliterate all the data on their machines and those photos they don't have backed up will be lost forever.
After all they are targeting the less computer literate folk here.
Re: 300 to strike but only 103 voted
Going by Unions (every one is opted in by default)
if you don't vote, it doesn't mean you can't be arsed / don't care, it means you agree with the union.
Re: No need for revolution
"When was the last time Apple described anything as revolutionary at an iPhone launch?"
Phone 5s customers have access to the revolutionary App Store
Apple leads the digital music revolution with its iPods and iTunes online store
Apple has reinvented the mobile phone with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store
So I make that a few days ago.
To be fair it seems they do stick in pretty much every press release.
and on and on and on and on and......
Of course they are a threat....
...it's harder for GCHQ / NSA to get access to them.
After all what could go wrong, they restricted them before....
some headlines over the last year.
Vodafone raises PAYG call and text charges
O2 increases roaming rates outside EU
No more tethering in T-Mobile’s Full Monty
Orange increases business contract prices
All that will happen is they will shaft us some other way.
Re: Buying in Virtual Windows Desktops is dangerous then
It's actually been like this for some time, I was told over a year ago to re-skin server 2008 if I wanted to use VDI
Have to agree, about once a month by us, some townie goes flying off a corner, and ends up some way from the exit point. Indeed about 6 months ago, there was a similar incident where the drive was not found for several hours because they had gone off the road flown threw the air, done a hundered metres across a ploughed field and into a ditch, but because of the weather, and the lack of visibility, there was no sign of the car, so it was presumed a car had hit the fence, then simply backed up and drove off.
I wasn't until the light of day and some horse riders with a higher vantage point, was the car discovered. The driver was ok(ish) but it does highlight how this can happen.
Half arsed story...
...you may want to actually go to BT's website before putting such drivel.
Note 2gb is for Infinity1 or less, over that it's 50gb.
So article should read.
If you have a lower package with BT you get 2gb, higher ones 50gb.
Not so headline worthy.
Bloody hell I've defended BT twice in a year, time to go and chip the ice of hell's front gate.
It's Windows 8...without the decent touch screen support...
The problem is...
they are are right, they are fighting Al-Q, so choose which shitty side you want to be on.
Bit like choosing the Mujahideen in Afghanistan over Russia, or favouring Iraq over Iran.
...home taping is killing music.
Swings and roundabouts....
this in theroy could apply to almost ANY OS / System.
As soon as you turn on ANY auto updating feature, regardless of OS, you are at the hands of someone else, unless YOU actually go through every single line of code and validate it prior to install.
Bribes in Russia?
Hold the press.....
Take it those investigating have never even got as far as passport control then?
People are starving, communities are being destroyed in the name of progress, there are people living in the streets, people are dieing of curable deseases and you're getting worked up over some pointless stats on which device humanity has somehow manged to survive without for countless years is prettier.
I'm off to The Worlds End for a pint, who want's to join me?
Re: Journalism is dead, long live the Queen
Journalism is dead......
Can I point you in the direction of Al-Jazeera, despite what many think it's not a terrorists dream site, it's just a proper news outlet and is highly regarded around the world.
And a bit more for those that love the RSPCA
An thanks to MIDI....
...is why the Atari ST, with it's built in MIDI ports, was king in the Studio / Home studio and not the PC or Amiga. Never once did I have connectivty issues with the ST and later my Facon 040 (yes a mod'ed 030). When it came to music software it was rock solid, unlike the PC when the soundblaster would just randomly just spew out utter crap.
just a thought....
...but maybe the dip could be
a) it's the summer, a less popular time to buy pc's
b) people waiting for 8.1
c) people just aren't buying pc's as much at the moment, regardless of OS.
The curious part of me wants to know....
...which broswer allowed the XSS to be exploited? Modern ones are pretty good at blocking these days.
Re: security through obscurity
From BBC News.
"The researchers informed the chipmaker nine months before the intended publication - November 2012"
The humble pie is over there, go gorge on it.
48/ 66 hours - you lucky bastards,.....
At least they don't have peoples lives in their hands as well.
Really getting bored of this...
...is this about the 10th article about this?
Am I the only one not getting even slightly excited by this.
Seach for Andriod HDMI Dongle and you'll find MUCH better kit out there.
....shares and taxes now, pay for the current pensioners, not for when you retire. That will be the next generation responsibilty.
...not having every radio station prety much being the same.
1. Middle of the road mix of dull modern stuff and 80's blandness. This usually have adverts
2. Incredibly dull content, even more bland than above, but with a smashy and nicey presenter. Read local BBC Radio.
3. Hillarious, Zany, Shouty DJ. Read Youff programming. Music dull and unoriginal.
Hell even Keranng is pretty dull these days.
Maybe if programme output was done by the DJ's and not a commitee, with the main purpose of not offending anyone, then so many people wouldn't be offended by the blandness.
I've a laserjet 5 thats done about well over 250,000 pages (I got it for £10 including cartridge). Bet your ink caosts way more than my toner.....
"Seems like a lot of work to go to for little return, but hey what do I know...."
There is this technique called reading the article.
"....of making nearly $4m "
So no quite such a "little return"
Re: "interact with Mac OS X and Windows"
Don't let being a minority get you down, 200x is the year of the Linux desktop don't you know?
One problem with some Unions mentality:
"and this will cause significant disruption to the company's clients,"
Therefore client will go, we'll you failed to meet SLA's therefore we will a) demand huge penalties, putting jobs at risk or b) take business elsewhere, putting jobs at risk.
Yes the pay rises are crap, but be careful how you tred.
Re: How to survive in the countryside
Of course I prefer Lee Mack's ideas about drinking and driving:
And no doubt voids any insurance she may of had on it as well.
There is a fundamental difference.
Installing a rock solid content filter on a (windows) pc is a piece of pee.Blue coats K9 protection is free so not even a cost to it. But like all filtering it has it's issues (horrorscopes are classed as occult)
Content filters on phones are pretty easy to get around and always have been, usualy just delete the app.
The big difference is there is no whitelist the average Joe can allow.
So say I want my kids to go to say...learnaboutsexinasensibleway.com or imamanwhatthehelldoiknowaboutperiods.co.uk or debunkingsexualmyths.org but it's blocked. How do you allow it?
Yes I will talk to my kids, but at times, they want to find things out for themselves.
And then what next? "Terror" sites (please define a terrorist, A Jordanian will have different views than you or I, what about right wing parties, communists, how about sites that show junk food, or beer or anything else that may upset little Johnny.
Thanks, but I think that I'm better placed to look after my kids than some pubic school educated dick that forgets his kids in the pub.
Ok their content may be a little crap, but their DC's certainly are not.
love the USofA
it's ok to walk around with a gun but it's illegal to look like a idiot.
Gotta love those morales.
"Ultimately, history will judge the decisions I made," Bush said earlier this month
Yes, you are now history and the vast majorty of the world think you are a war-monogering, self centred, ignorant prick.
Maybe, just maybe
they are playing the west at their own game. Allowing their stuff they make a lot of money from, go out with no tarrifs and keep tarrifs on kit they don't want to import as it will hurt their industry.
Let's not even start on food import tarrifs from "3rd world" countries.
One thing they still have to sort out....
....if the car is under it's own control and is involved in a colision, where does liabilty lie?
Well we're going to tax the buggers someway or another...
That technique only works if you use Chrome
And this is why the world is in the shit....
More, more more....give us more money...consume, consume, consume...more, more, more
Never mind the, actually I'm OK thanks. Well done so far.
...finally a phone that will fall to pieces BEFORE the warranty runs out.
