Gah! It's turning into the bloody Daily Mail here.
Now what is this twearking that this Miley Cirus is doing?
"who obviously doesn't feel that suing the military will make it harder to sell to other defence forces."
Well given the choice between giving it away for free and probably going bust or suing them, it was a bit of a no brainier.
Re: Wait, Koh again?
No she did work for Apple! They read it on a forum, or a blog, maybe it was in a newspaper, or was it that bloke in the pub/
AC, I'm a Windows user, but you really are a complete prick (yes we all know you are the same AC time and time again).
Can't see Server 2012 running a set top box, can you?
"We know the spam issues made it hard to use the new system at first, and we’re excited to see more of you getting involved as we’ve fixed issues. New features like threaded conversations and formatted comments are coming to life, thanks to you and your fans."
See, that is an example of utter bullshit right there; spam if I ever read it. Next he'll be selling me investments in a Nigerian king's shoe empire.
Re: It's all about the money
No this may come a HUGE surprise to many out there banging on about CE marks, but wait for it........
China is not in the EEC (not EU, different things)! I know craaaazzeeeeee. So local products, even decent ones, may not actually carry it.
Still at least they can rely on a the Kite mark eh?
Freecycle people don't get 200k of government (read our) cash thrown at them....
Not the only ones....
No Darwinism is where you kill yourself, not where you wipe out a couple of other families in the process.
"Those who have seen it could not make a copy, or take a copy away with them. "
Take a photo, bang it on the internet, move it around a few times and hey presto, instant orphan work, for all to republish.
Re: They said it; it must be true
Well maybe you should actually read it. It seemed a reasonable assessment and pretty balanced.
But then there is a BIG problem with the open source community, it's this elephant in the room. What! Someone DARES criticise us? LA LA LA I'm not listening.
Saudi driving test.
My cousin passed his about 5 years ago, sounds about the same, think he may of had to turn the car as well, but that was pretty much it.
Re: What about "phone only" extension wiring?
You'll need an ATA for those.
from cheapass Grandstreams to rock solid Pattons / Audiocodes.
Pay your money and take you choice.
Not investing in MS
Is that because he fucked up with Yahoo and got in a strop when MS didn't buy them out as he had planned for?
Here is what I would do.
Check external cable.
Send back if not resolved at your expense
It's not my job to fix your dodgy work.
Re: The reasons the team quit
Maybe they should move away from open source and get some MS products in, such as Word. They seem to have a better spell-checking solution than whatever they are currently using.
Re: The cloud is only vaporware and it never will get any better....
Hell I've been there, hit a typo, took out a phone system for 4 hours on Christmas Eve, just me and a security guard left on site...
Back Up? This was the NT4 days.....the 4 hours to manually rebuild would be far less painful than uses a backup in those days.
My ZX Spectrum is so cool and far more compact than your crappy C64...
Sorry reading these comments I was transported back, but then it was in the playground, not the playground that is now the comments section of any internet article.
"But the study also has implications for education policy here in the West. Why educate people in science and technology if other countries are going to reap the reward?"
Take look at who are taking those courses at some of the biggest Uni's and you'll find the vast majority are not of British origin.
Re: The ultimate recliner
A heater, you wuss! Fingerless gloves and a flask of tea is you're only warmth...
Ahhh is that the one were you buy the kit and if you don't cough up a usage fee that cost pretty much the same price as the kit, year on year, your network shuts down?
Re: EZ Tag!
So how does it detect those that haven't paid?
Re: Interesting thought...
it's a bit like the 5% of the population have X disease, 13%, have Y disease, A number have been a victim of <insert> abuse, B number will be traumatised by something they read online and C will be bullied at work or home.
You add them all up and the UK has a population of 6 trillion, most of whom have at least 23 illness at any given time
I estimated that based on a survey of 2 people.
Re: It takes ages for the operators to put out an OTA update...
"If so then the problem of operators not updating surely only effects the Android phone in the report."
You clearly have no history of Apple patches then have you.
Search for "Apple finally patches" and see what you get
Re: Home Users
If you want to have a solid cheap home version, just get a normal desktop and bang Drive Vaccine* on it, with a unprotected space for documents etc.
Pretty much bomb proof desktop.
*Others are available. In the old days, you just used Microsoft's Steady State, which is not available for 7 / Vista / 8
Re: VDI sucks at the best if times
What do you think a VDI is if it not "server based"?
Re: That's some battery
Devil in the detail.....
Will they swap out when you only get 90% of the original mileage on a charge? 75%? 50%? Or does it have to be completely dead.
Hot on the heels of this one...
Odd how he never reported it....
How naive are you in the world politics? Let me enlighten you.
"Should the UK (and others) be giving £100 millions in aid..."
I'll rephrase that so you understand the bigger picture
"Should the UK (and others) be giving £100 millions in bribes, to allow them to fly military missions over it's airspace, attack residents in it's borders and allow large western business operate with impunity whilst treating the country like a dumping ground"
Now hope that helps clear it up a little.
Re: The problem with BT's attempts to buff up their brand...
BT were one of the first of the biggies to rebrand, formally being British Telecom, yes I know, not very imaginative.
Still they could pretend that they are owned by a lovable beardy bloke, even keeping his brand name.
Well one simple answer
Chrome, but without Google spyware.
Am I the only one.....
that really doesn't give a shit if my fridge knows I've run out of milk, or my kettle knows to boil, as I'm 1 minute down the road?
Serioulsy, why bother living? You have fake friends on facebook, google telling you what to buy, your fridge telling you run out of cake, your watch telling you your a fat lazy bastard becuase you haven't left your desk for 5 minutes (and you've eaten all that cake) and your too busy flirting with a non-existant girlfriend on your phone to form a real relationship with another human being.
Seriously, if this is where we are heading, just shove us in a box, knock us out and put us on a drip for the next 50 years, it will save on food (which would of been bought from Tesco, as they know we are low on baked beans and they want us to eat them on the 3rd Thursday of each month)
In part I agree.
From what i can see it blocks all content, even up to date, except flash.
So wht not a happy medium, block it and say "this content is running on out of date software, click here to....Upgrade, Block, Allow"
Then when it up to date, it doesn't block it, or says "Allow this time / Always alllow if up to date"
Re: DNT is already dead, sadly
Fucking hell. MS are against tracking (in principle), implement it as default, are on the pro side and you STILL slag them off. How about bashing the o-so-lovely Google.
Give them a bashing where it's due, but ffs this petty minded bollocks is really boring.
My Guess, the evil side....
Re: SILICON ROUNDABOUT!!!!
You do know the HS2 is the Heathrow Extension don't you? And most don't actually want it!
Re: And the royal mail
To be fair, this Pinterest thing doesn't seem to be on strike at least once a year and bend your photos through the letterbox.
Re: Does the PM think that Zuckerberg himself is posting each individual video?
The issue is not them posting them, it is Facebooks reluctance to take them down.
But does it include...
POETS day for senior management?
The files don't need to be encrypted....
...sticking it on a floppy is protection enough. After all, how do you read from one of those things again? I tried putting it in my "combo" drive and it made a horrible noise as I slammed the drawer shut.
Re: Did I understand correctly?
Not quite, it's open to the WLAN as well, which means someone, in theory, can brute force your Wireless and redirect stuff, for example, changing you DNS settings.
I'd rate it a low to medium risk as you need to actually be somewhere near the kit and have time to do it, without attracting attention to yourself.
Re: Metro on a server!
In the end I opened up a dos cli and (with help from google) did "shutdown /r".
Fuck me, how old are you 12?
You admin a server and you don't even know the most basic of commands.
Now people, you see why Windows server admins get such a bad rep.
Re: Touch interface on a server OS?
Got to love the downvotes by the Linx tards. Oddly it always seems to be pegged at 4 within a few minutes of posting a pro windows / correct answer.
Article needs ammmending

" look for ways to invade the MBR, BIOS, and/or EFI to get around OS safeguards and try to gain nuke-resistant."
Oh dear, when will evil M$ (and others) do *ANYTHING* to stop this happening to us! Oh if ONLY they could do something, you know make the boot secure, hell maybe even call it SecureBoot
One OS for Mobile, Desktop and server....
That sounds awfuly familiar.
this along with the proposed standard size power/ plugs for power adapters for things like laptops are making things so much nicer.
