I'll do it..
....just like many other directors in the Public sector, I'll take the cash, fuck everything up and blame the underresourced staff for not working 23 hr shifts.
Then take my golden parachute of 10x my salary.
What is it with the reg...
...one article is moaning how a photographer (and photography in general) is being bullied by the likes of Wikipedia and how they are eroding copyright, then another article appears to sympathise with a guy ripping of someone's design for profit?
Re: It might because because its early so I apologise
So if you designed something, you'd be happy for people to rip it off and make money for it?
What happens if the jet ignites and give someone major burns, hows that for the publicity?
What about if there a suddenly 20 million knock offs on the road and it becomes boring and no longer "special?"
As I said it's one thing to make it for yourself, but another to sell it for profit.
Agree, the issue was not the fact he was copying it, the issue was he was copying it and selling it.
I once wrote of to a mega-corp to see if I could make a copy of something and take it to shows. They willingly gave me a "free" licence, with plenty of terms on it, including non-resale or not for profit clauses.
He should take a photo...
...of a cat ripping the wings off a bird and ask which one should get the royalties.
Re: @ Voland's right hand If only there was a way
You've never worked in telephony have you?
Yup the land of 5 9's or better. One day the rest of the computing world will catch up...
Just checking uptime on our last bit of legacy kit....yup 2000+ days. A lightning strike mean't we had to take it down for 15 mins to replace a power unit...no no, don't get me wrong it was still running, but the sparky didn't like working on live kit, otherwise it would be about 3000+
Re: how many of the MEPs were from the UK
They'll be even less (read none) if some people get their way.
Ok compare us to Romania
Creaking infrastructure, large countryside but still has dense conurbations.
"According to a top made by Bloomberg in 2013, Romania is ranked 5th in the world and 2nd in Europe in terms of internet connection speed, being surpassed by Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan. Average peak speed 37.4 Mbit/s. In Akamai's The State of the Internet Report covering the fourth quarter of 2012, Romania came 4th on average peak connection speed by EMEA country/region."
Re: Not completely mad
"Now I wonder which of us is evilest?"
The one that tried to get off with the receptionist of course (yes think about that one).
I'd actually see ad serving more like the following (using a pub, this time).
You go into a pub and the beer and food is fine.
The pub lets a bloke come in every Friday to sell some some fruit and veg and takes a tiny percentage of the takings
After years of nothing happening, the bloke unknowingly sells some apples laced with Arsenic.
Is the pub owner liable for letting this bloke use his premises to sell his goods?
Re: Oh the Ronny
Lets add into that, preaching about helping the poor and needy when the church has hundreds of billions of pounds of assets stuffed away for a rainy day.
Re: Weasel words
Why ancient: See the other Reg article about Android malware being used:
"The trio say the attack builds its network of customers by tricking them to install malware that gains root access on some 308 different handsets running virtually all versions of the Android operating system from Gingerbread (2.3.4) to the lastest stable Lollipop (5.1.1) build."
I'm with you (as posted there), I'd love this malware code that can root, seemingly very easily.
Re: Google Play immune?
Play has had plenty of compromised Apps in the past, so don't feel left out if you own an Android device.
Is there a way...
...I can get of of this app that roots your device so easily. It's a PITA to do on most phones.
Many companies also forget their legal requirements
A dining table is not just unsuitable because of family life.
11 Regulation 1(2)(d) defines the employees who are covered as users
Regulations 2 to 7 apply to protect users, whether they are employed to work:
(a) at their own employer’s workstation;
(b) at a workstation at home; or
(c) at another employer’s workstation.
There are also rules around chairs (must be movable) and other furniture,
Re: Darwin Awards Equivalant
"This would easilly be classed way up high, along with growing long finger nails, collecting snail saliva and
measuring the ovality of chicken eggs.."
Climbing a mounting only to come back down again; kicking a ball into a net, only to have it put back into the middle; turning cards over to go snap; making a cake that costs 10x the price of one from a shop; writing a program to run on a bit of hardware you built, that performs worse than an off the shelf one for half the price.
If he enjoys it and does no harm to others, why not?
"and a new "nightstand" mode to display a clock face while the Watch is charging at night."
A watch that shows the time.
I'm stunned at this "innovation"
" if you want redundancy have two machines in one location then use them to "hit off" against each other, "
This room has big boys in, you may want to think about being so clever.
we have 1000+ servers (excluding VM's) across multiple countries. You may not want to "hit off" (whatever the fuck that means) for that many servers , for the sake of an LO module.
Explain to a customer why you have to travel to godforsaken land land to press a power switch because the server has become completely unresponsive and it will be up again tomorrow once we've pressed the power button.
Guess you've never heard of 5 9's SLAs?

And the odd one that thinks SSH and WoL is a replacement for a Light On card
Re: But why?
Re: Dead Trees
Some people HATE reading stuff, especially long articles, on screen.
Yes I'm "guilty" of printing out PDFs.
I agree, has no effect on Iron.
Wonder what bit of crap is in the other Chromium based browsers that is not in Iron?
Re: "The farm decided to go with a more modern, off-the-shelf software solution."
It's actually not that hard to buy (or build) fan-less systems, then you can run a stripped back OS and your good to go.
After all, haven't seen many smart phones with 5" fans on the back.

Or skill the kids so they don't have to import the talent.
See what I did there?
Re: A few days ago...
I heard from a bloke in a pub, that his sisters mates father-in-law, knew this guy that once heard that a friend knew of someone that had the same thing happen in Gmail....makes you wonder....
Or the Australian Computing Society, what with it running on computers.
Re: I missed that one!
Hol crap...in researching my own post, have you seen this one!
Google patenting the "Contact Us" link, with the word "advertising" in it!
I missed that one!
", algorithm to turn telephone numbers and URLs in text into links, a"
So hyperlinks and click to call?
....quality control issues......
So it is just like the 80's computing revolution all over again!
I remember seeing 4k screens for £89,0000
So give it a few years and it will be "only" £1k
Re: I don't care about content
You could try this puppy...
Seriously, you use 4x HDMI's, so normal Quadro's will do the job, the same as you'd use for a video wall.
I'm sure it won't be long....
...before Big Buck Bunny is in 8K
Helvetica Medium Font....
...there's a blast from the past, no doubt applied using Letraset transfers.
"iOS 9 is the new supermodel."
Looks pretty on the outside, but in reality is shallow, unoriginal and vacuous?
The kids used to have an Innotab.
Downloaded games, about £2.99 a time.
Cartridges about £25 a time.
Guess how many cartridges we bought?
Is this one of those "Private" clouds...
...that used to be called data centres?
"London (and other cities) is best served by having a range of options, "
So by that very argument, Uber should be allowed then.
Re: Microsoft's bug-ridden software is used in US Military systems?
Good idea, show me a version of Linux, BSD or Unix that is bug free.
The worlds first digital mirror?
I take it these guys don't know about the ones that have been around since 2010?
Hint Intel, try looking on youtube.
As an ex-orange customer....
...that had to file a small claim action against them before they even admitted an issue, it does not surprise me.
Apparently setting up the much touted VoIP service for free calls was extremely difficult and technical and needs specialist equipment to do any sort of fault finding.
Guess what my job is...
that'll be 5 years in the pokey when UK PC plod demands access to your device and you genuinely can't let them
no way will they swap out my Monkey for one of those soulless things.
Facebook love IPv6
Because even if you turn off your location services, we'll be pretty sure we know where you posted it from.
Re: According to Akamai!
You may as well add Cloudflare, but we don't expect you telling us how great it is blocking it on this forum.
Is the word "cyber"
only used by the military and government these days?
I keep expecting Sandra Bullock to leap into action and save the day.
OS/2 was around when Shoreditch was just another London shithole. Whereas now it's a trendy London shithole.
I would think people have complained, that's how it came to their attention.
