Claims mean nothing
"depending on speed, and a claimed maximum altitude of 3,000m."
I claim I'm the fastest runner in the world, oh and the best looking person, oh and I'm also 6000 years old.
Re: "Completeness of Vision"
It means they don't have a fucking clue what they are on about.However the equally clueless won't like to admit they don't have a clue either, so will start to use this phrase, in order to pretend they know what they are on about when talking to equally clueless people.
In short, manglement speak.
WTF is this crap?
Several cases of cheap ass loopy beer, some for you, others for the random's you meet.
Portable case stove
stuff to put in the above.
couple of changes of clothes
Toothbush and toothpaste
That's it I think!
When food goes off / runs out either a) sell your soul to buy some 2nd rate food from some cockney in a burger van, b) crash with someone else and exchange beer for food.or c) just don't eat for 2 days.
Festivals are about having fun, not posting on bloody facebook
"....then the manufacturer will swap it out one way or another"
And after a year or two when the warranty has expired?
That old horse:
"therefore allegedly using its dominant position as a former state monopoly to squeeze out the competition."
NO, NO, NO.
There was NEVER ANY fibre broadband when it was a state monopoly, so STOP using that as an excuse for not putting your own infrastructure in. Be honest. Say "We can't be arsed to put our own in, so we need to piggy back off someone elses"
Re: No sympathy.
Daily Mail forums that way>>>>>>>
They are not asking for his conviction to be over turned, but mealy the police can't just rock up and ask for info and the ISP just happily hand it over. You give this over to freely and the potential for a cock up goes through the roof. And when you on about messing up and giving out the wrong information take these as an example of what happens when peoples primitive "what about the children" mentality takes over.
Re: Combo Upate
You mean some sort of service pack?
Well done Dutch Coward, maybe it's beacuse it Monday and they all have the grumps, but you single handily proved the stereotype of Linux nerds having no sense of humour.
I nearly spat my coffee out, yes I'm a Windows user (well I have an do have Android phone and use a PI for digital signage, have Linux box hosting my website, but I digress), and if it had been directed at Windows users, my reaction would of still been the same.
Got to love the law....
...no better in the UK.
So you have 2 options:
1. Help him get treatment and hopefully prevent re-offending. Cost couple of thousand pounds.
2. Throw him in jail, most likely lead to further mental issues, re-offending, jail, re-offending, jail and so on and so on. Cost, many 10's of thousands of pounds.
Still better to slash money to things designed to stop offending and instead build more jails and pack them in tighter. The reason? Easier for the accounts to prove how many people are locked up instead of how many people you stopped getting locked up.
Gotta love this fucked up world.

Security through Obscurity
err no, nothing obscure, it was fully published on the web. Default admin password as crap, not matter what security model

Cookies are good remember? They are there to help you get the ad's that you want!
I help my local community.
I help run a local charity (unpaid) which helps out all manner of people.
Therefore I've decided because of this, I now longer will be paying any tax.
Re: Nice Traffic System You've Got Here...
I don't know about London, but certainly in the Midland, nearly every private hire company has to licensed by the local authority, have special "MOT's" and have CRB checks.
And as for the knowledge, in my experience, that involves going "ooo he has a Midlands accent", i can fuck him over, not realising I know my way around quite well.
And why is it impossible I can't get a cab to go 2 miles out of the centre, yet I can easily get a cab in the Midlands that would happily go via 4 towns and complete a 40 mile trip. yes done it many, many times.
So screw the knowledge and change to the times, say to the 1990's would be a start.
The word we are looking for is Luddite.
Re: The real world is far from ideal, and we need to be practical
FTP? Security? Really?
And as for stripping out www to keep you secure,I guess by that comment you class Facebook as a safe connection then?
Here is an idea......
...instead of all these ISP's squabbling over who's willy is biggest, or said what to who........
IMPROVE YOUR SHIT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
just don't use the GUI?
Did you try the obvious?????
Re: But no network shares
"That was on a train, and trains now have wifi."
Your so right, you can.
Pay through the nose, for an OK connection
Share the free wifi with he rabble and have 100 people contend with a 56k link (sure feels like that)
Make sure to choose a route that is clear of valleys, countryside and tunnels.
Avoid local communiting trains outside of major cities, as many of these barely have electricity, let alone wifi.
Or just give up.
Comparing to Dropboxand the like?
Really, have you tired using Dropbox with thousands of photos, it's dreadful.It's a file store, not a photo gallery
Now comparing to Flikr,now that is much more like it
..simply the code base is different and the bit they are fixing / updating in 8 is simply not present in 7.
Or would that be too easy an answer
Re: get over it!
"including really sensitive secrets such as info about compromising Huawei's internal network"
Yup, spying on a legitimate company seem fair to me....and I wonder how much information "occidentally" got in the hands of a certain US networking giant.
And as for "spying on enemies", they are only enemies because you choose to make them so, and that they do so like wise. Most people in this world with even half a brain want to live without hatred and fear, but those in power like to peddle it, because it suits their own agendas.
Re: Before the knee-jerk "PC gone mad" comments start in earnest...
Odd I'm sat directly one of those strange women in IT things your talking about (way more of a techie than me) two desks in front are 2 more women, to my left another, and across the room, 4 more. We have about a 70/30 in this office.
Now go to your local hospital, tell me the female to male nurse ratio, or how about social work, or primary school teachers, or carers, or even till operators at Tesco's.
We can try to battle "stereotypes" all you want, but a lot of it is simply the fact men and women just simply want to do different jobs, so lets live with it.
I for example class myself has a bit of a problem solver, which makes me a shit therapist. I do this job, to fix problems and puzzles, not to give people hugs and make them feel better about themselves.
The sooner people realise genders DO actually want to do different roles, the better we'll all get on.
Yes there is an issue with sexism and were it exists, but trust me, spend some time with a bunch of nurses when they've had a few vino's and you'll understand it works both ways, way more derogatory than this.
Oh and by the way, there IS a boyfriend version of this...
but to keep the balance:
Re: After all this time ...
How long has Linux been around...is it bug free?
But the advantage of the modern age....
...is you could simply host your own and then have a shopping cart to download the tracks....

Excellent idea, that'll mean Google, Yahoo, facebook, Twiiter and MS will go bankrupt within a week.

Re: Just nuke it from orbit
This can help....
SATA’s fastest speed is 12Gbit/s currently. PCIe v4.0 provides 1,969 MB/sec per lane. Gen 3 provided 985 MB/sec per lane.
One unit of measurement PLEASE!
Re: Why Taiwan?
you just want someone that thinks differently.
In Asia for example, dual SIM mobiles are the norm, in Europe, they are not. In the UK top loading Machines are rare, yet in Asia very common and so on and so on.

Re: This is why I like my old BMW.
Yup, that's why YOU are the easiest way of gaining access. Lot harder to disable an immobiliser than the owner.
It's "bimmer" for a BMW car. A beamer or beemer is a BMW motorcycle.
Never, ever heard of bimmer. Most be a local thing for local people.
Re: Need they an app to stop wheels exploding
Your fault, your driving in the UK. BMW wheels and pot holes don't mix.
No idea why you got a down vote, either the Joke icon wasn't obvious enough, the joke was so bad it deserved one, or proving the point, geeks have absolutely no sense of humour..

Would that be the European union that so many in the UK don't want to belong to?
Still we can always leave and sit on the sidelines singing Land Of Hope and Glory, pretending we still have some influence in the world.
Simple Answers are always the correct ones.
GCHQ isn't WEEE compliant and doesn't have a permit for the local council tip. So they live it to the guilty* party to dispose of.

Ah the Utopia vision
"This could include anything from intelligent monitoring of parking spaces in the city to networked bins which signal when they need collecting,"
And now back to reality
"This could include anything from intelligent monitoring of parking violations in the city to networked bins which signal when they have the wrong items in, or exceed the households weekly allowance allowing an automated fine to be sent"
Can't belive i'm this late to the comments and no XKCD
This is nothing new, well except the location
Lettuce (and many other veg) is often grown in huge production lines, that slowly shift along to be harvested, or under "perfect conditions" that's why modern fruit and veg is so bland.
Grow your own carrots (can be done easily in a pot) and compare

...in a world of rising food prices, what we need is more agricultural land turned over to Biofuels.
Hint: If you are unaware, this is one of the major reasons crop prices are so high and as corn is also a major live stock food, why meat prices are also high.
A good balanced article...
...here is the reason they are doing better.
Investement in the long term.
They have been pouring money into education (go to any UK Russell Uni group and see how many PhD students are Chinese, and have been for many years), into research and into acquisitions. It put nearly every country to shame.
As for the pathetic US proganda of Ooohh it's funded by the Chinese army, so who cares, NASA, Lockhead Martin, Boeing, all bank rolled by the US military, but I don't see anyone bitching about that.
Re: Whats missing
And you think that stops the gullible?
Some people are so blinkered by new builds and a scared of a bit of hard work, they overlook the older ones, with bigger gardens, better areas and a lot better built.
I know this for a fact as where I live houses back onto the M42 and near where I used to live several years ago they are virtually under the M5.
Yes the old area is a crap hole:
Because, being the grumpy cynic that I am, they wanted to get there "Advertise x number of items for free" campaign under way before driving traffic to their site for their password reset.
