Every DC I know of (not many granted) have computer controlled UPS where you can see EXACTLY current demand and by that fact, usage over X period.
No if like they say they have been cutting back on power, surely they would of seen hoped to have seen the bills drop.
That said, in their defence, if finance are simply rubber stamping them, then where does the buck stop?
Wow talk about branching out.....
...last I knew G-tech were making really good vacuum cleaners.
I should point out, for those that don't know, Bromsgrove borders Redditch, a place that had the lovely, honest, truthful Jacqui Smith as the former MP, so we know a thing or two about expenses around here.
Re: That is what you get for using Windows
And don't forget to patch the million and one security holes that the Cisco will have....
As for IOS name, have you been asleep for the last 4 years?
Don't worry about it, if you do have an "independent" system, just shed the lorry load of evidence and all will be well.
Yes but does it play...
Re: The sad things are...
Enlighten us, which patents are they that do this? Everyone wants to know...
How do you know they are software patents?
...now just need to wait for the Iron release
Re: Well that's all right then.
To be fair, he's only continuing the tradition of the government that introduced it.
...I was printing watches* that told you the risk of sunburn 20 years ago, along with stickers that did the same. Needless to say, most were shipped to South Africa and Australia, not much demand in the UK.
*By watches, they were coated PVC wrist straps in the shape of a watch to stop you getting a weird tan line. And no, they couldn't tell the time.
Looks like they still make them.
...grab yourself a copy Windows Steady State, the backbone of libraries and schools for years.
it's hard to find via MS, but there some out there on decent 3rd party sites.
Install,set up policies, turn on Disk protect and bang, a free mini VM. Not that hard to do the basic stuff either, although some tweaks can mess things up (like turning off system tray can bugger up printing).
best of all IT'S FREE.
Deep freeze is good, use it on Win8 machines as Steady State was XP only.
How much will it cost...
...from Brighthouse? We know the target market for stupid size tellies in small houses, so how much?
Re: who stole the filing cabinet from under my nose?
new patents are just a side swipe away ...
So long as it's not a side swipe to unlock, you'll be fine.
Re: An old dog
"I really can't see the point of this. The Pi's processor is slow, limited and obsolete - why would people want to use it in new designs?"
Because your washing machine doesn't need a 8 core processor with 4 gb of RAM?
Re: What has the EU been smoking?
"Well, because VAT is regressive and hits poor people higher than rich people, obviously!"
Really, so a £200,000 Ferrari incurs a lower tax rate than a £200 banger?
20% is 20% no matter how much you pay.
Re: @big_D What's the point?
Do you drive?
Can you find the TDC on your engine?
Thought not. Yet you depend on it.
It's self-centred, obnoxious morons like you that give people in IT a bad name.
Re: Later adopters still get *something*
Sheez....you really are a tight arse...
Still, glad you work for nothing.....
Re: AV for Android
And only the REALLY gullible think there are is no Android malware.
Also what it doesn't say how many of these are simply VM's / Windows 7 XP mode machines, just getting their patches.
May I send some of the dev's involved and commenting on here a copy of Lord of the Flies? Some of the people in the Linux world really seem to have a lack of any social skills....
Exactly my thought, internal use for digital signage or demo suites. I doubt they would take on Sammy in the TV arena.
Re: What happened to
There's this thing call a "Search Engine", examples being Google and Bing.
If you type in say, European GPS, you may find what you are looking for.
Good job you are not posting this on a technical site, you may get laughed at.
Unless of course you are attempting to be ironic.
Gah...what the bloody hell are those Edison and Tesla fellows doing messing around, spending millions on those stupid electrical things when there are poor people in the world, many who are dropping dead from cold and hunger.
"We didn't sell any of our data; we sold someone else's data via a subsidiary we bought".
Thank goodness for that, I feel so much better.
PS Barclay's, despite my phone calls to your useless Indian call centre, still getting the credit card statements for the person that hasn't live at the address for 8 years. Fraud prevention, apparently someone mentioned it once.
Re: Pump the Primes
(And given that Amazon Prime costs $79 in USAland and £79 over here, what's the betting that the hardware will exhibit an equally usurious price-translation, too?...
Sigh how many times......
UK inc. VAT (sales Tax)
US excluding Sales tax.
$95.99 when you add UK VAT rate of 20% to the US prices or £66.99 ex VAT.
The same reason the West does not. Self interest.
How are we doing with allowing free trade with South America and Africa these days?
Well, I had a brand new XP box and deployed to the Middle East.....
I upgraded to Linux.
Shock, fucking horror, an obsolete, 13 year old system is not a secure as a brand new one.......
Re: Pot meet Kettle..
I agree, but it's not limted to them, they are all bloody at downloading shit you don't want.
Sourceforge, MS, Adobe, Java,Google.
"Free" these days means spending 10 minutes avoiding the obvious links and looking for the direct ones.
Re: Too Late
Too specific, you clearly don't have a clue about US patents..
Needs to be more like.
A manufacturing process to allow the production of graphine or derivatives of graphene or products similar to graphine, to be used in electrical, electronic or other mechanical or electomechanical device but not limited exclusively to said products. The process may, or may not involve the following steps or a deviation of said steps in order to produce the material.

Hence “Tesla data logging is only turned on with explicit written permission from customers..."......
At this point in time however:
"In our new partnership with <insert social media company> the T&C's have changed and it is now on by default. You have 30 days to accept these or you must stop driving your car. If you do not stop driving the car you are agreeing to these new terms and conditions, a full list (32,000 lines of text) of which can be found at the broken link <HERE>"
No joke icon...it will happen.
If the apps are such a PITA to migrate away, have these people tried using Virtual Apps / Portable versions and running them on modern systems?
Or is that to obvious?
Re: Thanks for the source ...
And no-one wants to be owned by a simple thing like a font.
Glasshouses and all that?
Re: He has a point - sort of...
Yes and no, you can still easily get "normal" LEGO and my two girls love playing with it. They mix and match with the custom stuff with bizarre effect.
Re: Where are the values?
I think it's disgrace that they have so many girlie LEGO sets now, after all we know women are to blame for ALL the worlds sins, as for the babies that are born evil...well.
Re: Too pricy
"Most houses either have a gaming device or don't want one..."
Based on a survey of people aged 18-30?
Let's see...I don't, my parents don't, my sister does, but her son's PS is in the bedroom, my neighbour doesn't, several of my friends don't.
Many have Sky / VM but bitch about the extortionate prices.
So based on my survey, most people would like something like this.
Re: cut in two places?
Local Truth OUT
US Government Approved truth IN.
Re: Two - Factor Authentication
Did you not know keys are no longer cool. Nope, an App is the future and when the battery on your smart phone runs out, simply plug it into your car char....aaahhhhhhh.
"Can your gran drag a bookmark from the browser to the desktop ? That will create an icon for launching the page of the bookmark or at least it will in KDE. How would your gran do it in Windows ?"
Well you could drag it from the book mark to the desktop...or to the task bar if you want. Been around for quite a few years now.
Well one answer...
...patch your bloody machines! That's said, that goes for most other countries as well.
Just like to War on Drugs, Crime, Antisocial behaviour etc etc....
How do you know you are winning the war? By the number of people you lock and arrest..
Look at the budget for crime prevention* vs crime detention, it's a disgrace.
You won't get rid of crime, but you sure as hell can reduce it, but hey, if you have to close a youth centre to save £100k a year, those 4 or 5 kids it stopped from spiralling into crime, now cost £500k a year to lock up, but who cares, it's someone else's budget.
* proper crime prevention, not camera's. So youth clubs, after school clubs, decent street lighting, drug rehab centres, sporting facilities, gang intervention measures; things that time and time again have been proven to work, but as you can't but a figure on how much you *may* of saved, no-one gives a shit.
..countries such as France and Holland that have easier access to "smut" and have far more relaxed attitudes to sex in general have lower teenage pregnancies.
Re: Nothing new here then, move along inside...
So me a product that doesn't have a known bug list and I'll show you one that is a) either very basic or b) not very well tested.
Re: I'm sorry, buf if your company needs that...
Yup. Your right, how dare a product from 4 years ago require a technology widely in (corporate) use from 4 years ago.
Now if you said a NEW version needed it, I would side with you.
Re: It really is sad......
yes, they will create a ultra secure version with no way of getting info back to Google, then they will download Facebook and twitter from the Play store.
No Joke Icon, well, just because.
" NTP reflection was the most common large-scale attack method in February 2014."
This should start to drop:
Returning a laptop to PC World ruined this bloke's credit score. Today the Supreme Court ended his 15-year nightmare
A bit missing from this article that sheds a different light..
From the BBC:
"The decision was overturned later by judges at the Court of Session in Edinburgh after Mr Durkin himself appealed against the size of the damages".
So basically he was awarded £166,000, but wanted more and it back fired. So the long battle could of ended 6 years ago.
Re: biometric anyone?
"All passports are biometric, they have a picture of your face in them."
Total fail, you know that those bloody foreigners all look the same.
Re: biometric anyone?
Huge amounts of airports don't have biometric checking, even if everyone did, it would only check a certain set of names (can you imagine the US allowing most of the world to check on THEIR citizens ).
So until you have a global installation, with a global database, at every airport, no matter how small, it will be easy to get around. Now let's not even mention good old fashioned bribery.
...I help a little run charity (only 4 people out of the 30 odd involved are paid and as that's their full time job, I think that's only fair), but I've added a "Like" button and Twitter integrations to the site, so now I can ask for £150,000 for social "integration"
