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: 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"
Re: Is Windows 8 fundamentally broken?
I would test your pc out.
1000 Win8 installs, not a single rebuild. And why do you keep needing the chimes bar?
No but I hear Wolfenstein 3D is just about playable
Re: So why not
Try Cosford instead :-)
I can help them out...
...you know those million and one companies you bought and how you now own and manage them? How about getting them so they bloody work together without each one fucking up the other!
We don’t insert ads in front of it. I really don’t want to see an ad for nappies in front of the video for my dad’s memorial service......
Am I mistaken? Is this the same nasty company that knocked the living shit out of any pc with it installed, with adware crap that was a fucking nightmare to remove?
"My PC is running slow"
"Do you have real networks / real player software installed"
"Type this...Format C:" (yes I know)
This sounds like the work of over-zealous municipal officials."
Or those that decided that the 1960's are long gone and and to stop pissing about pleasing those born before the war.
Myth 10: Glass marks the end of privacy
Google, making a statement on privacy....what next Putin commenting on subtle diplomacy?
Is the TOR name copyrighted (can't get to site from work)?
If so a quick cease and desist to Apple should of done the trick.
...now it can eat up my all processing power on all the cores even better now.
Mmmm let me see.
Russian national arrested in the US? Flight risk?
Sheez...some people ,usually the 'tards that write M$, Winbloze, Window$, (is it still 1998), see the words Microsoft and / or Windows and the rest of the text becomes a blur.
Re: The power of the word
Well if you seem to feel all you have to say is NO, feel free to take it over.
Here's how it works outside of the Public Sector.
This needs to work on Win7 / Linux.
What, you say it can't? Well, you fix it, or we find a product that will.
What XP Support ending?
Why have they not told anyone? I wasn't aware and I'm important! Quick PANIC!
Re: re Lionel Baden
Every call recording system I've ever worked with have used WAVs
Only for ease of use, plenty will do smaller MP3 and even better, many with do vox files, which are tiny.
So long as they are not capturing DTMF tones, as they wouldn't want to fail any compliance laws would they?
Re: Bitmap Bros...
Amiga that just didn't exist for Windows (i.e music production.)
Dear Amiga owner
By Music production you mean tracker rubbish?
Sheez you Amiga lot, Pro24 / Cubase / Creator / Nuendo? Proper tools not mickey mouse toys.
Lots of love
Atari ST / Falcon owner.
See nothings changed in 30 years of IT. People still willy wave and pretend their OS is the best.
I depends what you class as hold / ASA.
I consumer often starts this when the get the 1st message, a call centre will class it as when you go through to the queue (hence On Hold).
Also it's ASA, sl calling up at 9am Monday morning, as opposed to 3pm on a Thursday, will get very different results.

Imagine joining a WebEx meeting directly from Calendar, or starting an instant meeting from Contacts.
Wow, just like Lync / OCS and Office products. Take it can do a video call straight from composing an email as well then?

And one day...
...we will look back on the good old days when you thought for yourself.
Re: Hold it!
Yes even that.
In the New World Order, the doorbell will ring whilst you take a shit, as you have just started your last roll and therefore you need to have a new one delivered.
It's ok, if you don't hear the doorbell as Big Data corp will send you an email and call your phone to make sure you do.
One thing I'd suggest...
...is making things like updates run late at night and where possible across different days.
So PC 1 runs Win update at say 10pm Wednesday after Patch Tuesday, the next at 10pm on the Thursday. That way they are not all battling for bandwidth at the same time and ultimately all failing.
Also how about locking the drives down? In the old days Windows Steady State* was your friend. Now you have to use commercial ones such as Faronics Deep Freeze or my personal favorite Drive Vaccine from Horizondata Sys. Always try a bit of blagging, it sometimes works.
* Steady state is no longer available from Microsoft, but some freeware sites are still carrying it. Highly recommend using this if you are planning to stay on XP.
Re: What's in your ultimate Windows XP migration toolkit ?
Oh piss off troll. This is a worthy cause, so fuck off with your low level cheap shots.
"If we want to change the world for the better, we should lead by example, not by persecution."
Wrong, unless you stand up and tell some people are wrong, then they will carry on, regardless if you are leading by example. If someone had the balls to stand up to Hitler and (more importantly) his cronies early on, WW2 may not of happened. However people were so desperate for reform, they turned a blind eye to his nasty side (yes even Hitler had a good side) and willingly went along with his policies.
So no, sometimes you have to "slap" people down, the trick is to know when that "slapping" has to stop, before you become the aggressor.

Aren't they knocking on about 50 now?
Mental health care is shocking in the UK, doubt Romania is much better either. Only in the last few years has it even started to be talked about in this country.
And, no disrespect intended, but is it me or is this kill myself and my kids a relatively new thing. I'm sure it's only in the last decade it seems to be happening more and more. I really don't remember it being that common before that
Nakamoto admitted he had the ability to write computer code, but had been unable to find work as a programmer or engineer for 10 years. This "severe financial distress" caused Nakamoto to cut off his internet connection last year.........
