Re: Offline functionality...
I use NavMan...seem less insistent on spending an hour to go back where I came from if I choose to take a divert but can't stop to re-enter the information. I also prefer the less cluttered interface.
It does have it's quirks, but less than Googles
Re: Why use Helion...
Ac I'm not even a Linux user, but you really are boring the pants off us.
You may not even bother as posting as AC, you posts are so predictable, it's easy to figure it from the same, dull, repetitive low level postings. Heck if you were to take a Turing test, I'm pretty sure you would fail as a human.
Seriously, I've heard off-shored call centre staff stick to a less rigid script.
"If you think about home automation, a lot of those individual applications have been around for years ......" he said "You know about the security side........,"
At which point is wee'd myself a little.
Re: Given its a stealth designed aircraft
The MG-25 could in theory intercept the SR, as it would be rare for the SR to being flown at full speed for long, and certainly armed with a AA-6 Acrid missile, it could take out a 71. Only problem is the Foxbat may be completely knackered afterwards.
All theory of course....
Ok I hope it's bit more unique than this:
"...powering on a device by disabling or immobilizing the button with a lock mechanism."
Like my electric razor then?
Re: Over compromised?
I suppose a compromised chip seems attractive from afar but is it also a demonstrable lack of commitment and will it cost too much?
A bit like when they started making a 64 bit x86 compatible device. That never caught on, unlike the "pure" 64bit Itanium which was a runaway success.
...just been a little bit sick.
Come the revolution, marketeers and patent lawyers 1st.
....all the people having a go at the NSA have done EXACTLY what they wanted, you are all talking about it, after all, no such thing as bad publicity.
If it had been extremely hard to crack, I doubt it would of even made the Tech websites, let alone mainstream media.
Smart arse twaters: 0
Next week, more bait traps.
"or our cloud data and traffic searched for adverts... any of them could do it."
And we know which one it will be...
One problem with Tor
The weak link is the exit nodes....people presume these are the "good" guys. Yes it's scrambled and goes through loads of relays, but if you own enough relays and own enough exit nodes, it's not beyond the computing powers these guys have to put it all back together.
Of course they will say...curse those drug dealers and terrorists using this darknet, we can't find them if they use that...snigger.
Have to agree.....
Tax Disc, perfect.
Renewing my garden waste collection, what a joke.
Go to waste collection, read instructions.
Choose "sundries" from small list of services.
Enter ID. Now is that the customer id or the reference ID? Neither are recognised, still no matter can still pay.
Now choose my address from the empty drop down list......sigh
Enter the fields manually.
Postcode can't have spaces...sigh.
Click pay and all seems ok.
Now enter email for receipt of payment (why didn't you ask fo that when entering all the other details).
So it sort of works, but boy is it so badly thought out.
Now don't even get me on trying to find the school term times and teacher "training" days. Yet to manage that.
But being a bloke....
...he's bound to claim it was actually 7 atoms thick...
Re: Not easy
Soldering? That's welding for girls.
Re: If the UK is really that worried about backdoors...
UK isn't worried, hence much of the UK back-haul runs over Huwawei.
No, NO, NO!
I'm sick to death of going to the "News" sites to see crap like.
#Breaking news in @London, Today #InLondon a #tubestrike has occurred. @TFL say #theywanttoreach an agreement.
Al-Jazeera is the place to go if you still want proper news.
Tweaks every 16 seconds....dead easy in a live, large datacentre.
Drive fail, rebuild RAID, drive fail rebuild RAID, drive fail, rebuild RAID.
See a tweak every 16 seconds.
I have a call from 2005 for you, something about a credit card technology?
Re: In other news...
"In other words, Microsoft has learned their lesson from the IE brouhaha, and now make sure the technologies they want to push are so insinuated in to OS functionality that they can not be removed."
You are getting the two horribly mixed up. .Net is not trying to push out the competition order to get revenue / market share gain, it's a key part of the OS that many MS technologies rely on.
Will you be voting UKIP then?
Just look at the comments and answers section and you have all the material you need. Granted most would be illegal to produce.
Re: Locked Phones
Well if you're locking your phone, you're either peado or a terrorist. Don't believe me? Try refusing to unlock it in the UK.
That old chestnut...
But [NSA whistleblower Edward] Snowden has made it more difficult for law enforcement to hunt down the wolves," he added
Yes because they were so good at getting them before this....so c'mon, out of the several thousand banking Trojans that have been created, the 10's of thousands of victims,and the millions of pounds been stolen, how many have you crim's have you caught and prosecuted BEFORE Snowden?
Wonder if Connie is still about.....
....and if you don't know who Connie is, ask your dad.
Re: At times because of management's bad choices, not always because of the job
I feel stressed looking at your rant...my eyes, my eyes....
"Not to sound bigoted here, but there's nothing wrong with giving someone a slap now and then if they deserve it"
To right! I personally think you are a class A prick so please send us your address so we can all give you a slap, as you clearly are asking for it.
Clearly they haven't been recommending well enough if still on XP
Re: Sorry - not where I live
I've never got the reason why buying from farm shops is dearer than the supermarket.
You've cut out the transport, the packaging, the middleman's cut and the retailers cut and a mass of other inline losses.
Re: Adverts on Gmail?
Would that be the Adblock Plus that Google doesn't allow on it's Play site? And you know what Google and commentards say about downloading from untrusted sources....
Re: Lost all faith...
"blocking websites carrying out illegal activity"
Blasphemy is a criminal offence in Pakistan, so you've fallen over there haven't you?
"The latest Enemies of the Internet report from Reporters Without Borders called out the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) for its increasingly prolific attempts to blacklist URLs and filter web content."
The latest Enemies of the Internet report from Reporters Without Borders called out the UK Government for its increasingly prolific attempts to blacklist URLs and filter web content.
Clearly you don't go to Apple releases.
Re: subtitle on horsemeat
They read it on the internet, so it is true...
Now as for vegetarians eating refined sugar....lol.
Lest not forget a large proportion of FAST members are law companies.
Re: Not Engineering
A good story about the NS10m and why I never used them. They were simply a fairly average monitor to reproduce the sound of a fairly average home speaker.
You forgot your joke icon.
Re: A good whine
Dom Perignon and Lidl's cheapest......
Actually I think you'll find it's the "experts" that tell can't the difference....the rest of us can, we just look at the price and go, yup, that one.
Re: Wow! That many people moved to KDE or XFCE?
"Windows 7/Vista is essentially a KDE 4.X clone."
On 11 May 2007, KDE 4.0 Alpha 1 was released marking.....
PCs. Prior to its announcement on July 22, 2005, Windows Vista was known by its codename "Longhorn". Development was completed on November 8, 2006
So remind me again, who copied who?
This depends if he bought as business user or not. As the below does not cover businesses, who will have their own T&C's.
So he may well of been wrong.
Distance selling act:
Has the trader accepted your offer to buy?
To work out whether the trader has accepted your offer, you'll need to check the following:
The wording of your confirmation email or letter. For example, it might specify that the trader has accepted your offer
The contents of the terms and conditions. For example, they might say when acceptance takes place
*Whether the goods have been dispatched or the service has started. If the goods are dispatched to you or the service starts, it would be safe to assume that the trader has accepted your offer*
If payment has been taken. If payment has been taken from you this *does not necessarily mean acceptance has happened*, but it could be a good indicator.
Not sure how you got a down vote, 8 years is pretty close to 7 years for murder.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse, especially when there are targets to be met.
Mmmmm the back....
...reminds me of leatherette seats from the 1970's Austin <insert piece of shit rust bucket here>...mmmm hope they do it in beige.
Re: What percentage of eBay shares did Icahn buy?
Bugger all, but as with pretty much everything in life, he who complains loudest, gets their way.
Nope didn't get that pun?
He doesn't clean out, just renames and carries on.
Re: In the mold (mould?) of Bill Gates...
Mudraking, sleaze, lies, shit stiring, ruining peoples lives and general peddling of hatred.....shall I go on.
I'd rather less he retired, more dropped dead.
Re: Danger Will Robinson
Yup, time to call the Lawyers! This is from an earlier copy, but:
1.1 Installation and use. You may install and use one copy of the Software in a single virtual machine on a single computer, such as a workstation, terminal or other device (“Workstation Computer”) that contains a licensed pre-release copy of Windows 7 Ultimate edition, to design, develop and test your programs for use with the Software.

I agree, because the millions of ordinary users using are using cmd line,.
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.
