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.

Or pops out the other side, 80's computer game style
That'll be from the support helicopter
we practical IT guys still hate doing bloody documentation.

Re: Wish they were here ..
"But at least the price arrived at is as a result of the grower and the grocer negotiating a price at which they are prepared to exchange the goods."
The supermarkets are free to choose where they buy the products from at an agreed rate between both individual parties, either party can choose a different supplier / retailer.
Pandora have to deal with little more than a bunch of cartels, where a price is fixed, regardless of an artsits "value".
Re: Here we go again....
BT obviously hate competition from Virgin and so they provide fibre in areas that already has Virgin cable
I suggest you look further than large metro areas. Virgin have done pretty much fuck all in the Midlands since they took over Telewest and i'd hazard a guess that's pretty much country wide.
There are towns with 10's of thousands of residents without Virgin, yet BT are sticking fibre in villages and Hamlets.
Trust me, I'm happy to slag BT off, but they are doing a darn site more than VM
Re: random attacks
You did read the article din't you?
Go back and try again, then you may grasp the concept of signing up for this and asking them to do it.
They need this sort of computing power to work out the debt the US owes it's "enemny".
Where are you?
LINUX MALWARE FAIL (to paraphrase)
Re: Where are the attacks...?
PS - I use the OPERA browser for the above reason...
Remind me again how using Opera prevents packet sniffing and data injection?

Re: missing the point
" Liberty has an economic value - the reason why the west is ahead of the rest of the world, over the last 200 years."
Remind me, out of the USA and China, which one is massively in debt to the other?
Re: For people who knew no better
Bah Amiga...good for games and "pretty" pictures but shit when it came to pro-music.
Go Atari !
See Eadon, did this crap well before Linux vs Windows...
Heck Speccy vs C64 was before this
and before that...I'll leave to the grey beards.
See the corrections link.
Re: How scary
"wandering rapists, Islamic crazies and Bombay belly..."
80% of the population are Hindu's and only 13% are Muslim.
Rapes per 100,000 people (2010):
England & Wales: 28.8
Still, why let facts get in the way of being a total prick.
"but they do not move or involve me at all. Soulless."
It's a fucking phone. It you are moved by a phone and believe it has a soul, you REALLY need to get a grip on life.
“ARM sold 9 billion units in 2012"
Being picky, but ARM sold F.A. units; they are an I.P. company, not a manufacturer.
Re: Somebody PLEASE!!!!
"That's the printer's job, not mine."
No it fucking not.
A printers job is to reproduce the original as closely as possible. If your proof is shit, so will you print.
Was a printer for a decade and had my fair share of dickhead designers to deal with.
Re: The government itself is guilty anyway
I stand corrected.
However they are certainly not premium rate numbers by any stretch of the imagination.
We need a humble pie icon!

"99% of the time it's better in Opera. The only people that couldn't possibly like Opera are those too closed minded to try it"
or those behind a proxy that want to use wildcard exceptions. Yes this fucking shitty bug that's been around for years (well it was a few months ago at which point I've given up trying to use it). Seemed they could never be arsed to fix it, so not fit for a lot of corporate use.
