"Government wouldn't want this to happen on their website ryt? They shud know we are still watching"
that's one way to slow down the spammers and phishers.
Stick Symantec on EC2 and watch the whole system grind to a crawl.
Re: No, screw motorola and samsung.
Put it this way, motorola were demanding 2.25% of the retail price of a PC, just to allow windows to play h264.
Think you'll find it's MPEG-LA that own that one.
And you're confusing PC with Windows, ironically MS are part of MPEG-LA so I doubt they were demanding money from themselves.
Still fact's who needs them.
Re: The Shitty Programming Language From Bell Labs Called
Oooh someone's grumpy becuase they aren't getting the pay and recognition they want.
Here's an idea. if your such an expert in coding, feel to to make a better browser. If not STFU.
Now to grab a Iron update.
PS. I use i.e8 & 9, FF, Opera and Iron, so don't think I could be classed as a fanbouy, I use the best one for the job. End Of.
A Saturday Evening / Sunday morning perhaps?
Unfortunately in this country there is no desire to actually educate,....
Now if there was some sort of speed awareness course that could be offered instead of points and a fine, you know one that you could even do off your back.
I mean if ONLY I could find somewhere that did some sort of advanced driving course, but know I can't find anything of the sort.
Shame nothing like that exists isn't it?
..the Heathrow extension will be opening in a few years time. AKA the High speed rail link.
Birmimgham International wants, and is like to get, another runway and be therefore be well under capacity. High sped link between BHX and London, job done.
What you belived it was to bring buisiness to the midlands? ha ha ha haa....£32bn cost to help the midlands, Oh stop it, your killing me.
Err... you contradict your own arguement.
You complain prices are to high (BTW CD's haven't increased in price in the 2+ years I've been buying them), then go on to say "The media needs to wake up and realize people who pirate this stuff have no intention of buying it legally, ever"
So why lower them to £1 each when, as you state, they still won't buy them.
And from what I gather, from the general article, is to block specific files rather than global blocking, so surely it's better to block pirated material and allow the legal stuff through than global blocks currently being enforced around the world?
Re: It doesn't bode well...
still, better than most peoples cantonese on these forums.
"hard times the country’s 12 million disabled people".
12 million registered disabled, so probably about a 1/4 really, the rest just claiming the benefits.
Let''s face it, if you take the stats on x number people have this, y number of people suffer from this, then either the country have a population of 600 million, or some people have 50 critical illnesses and disabilities.
Back on subject, a lot of the disability act is a best effort job, so they don't expect a little website run from dave in his bedroom to chuck the resources at it, but they expect multi-billion pound companies to do so (remember most of the so called comparison websites are actually run by banks and insurance companies).
Re: Old hat
Yes and in others, read only access means they take the pen off you.
Shock, Horror....You have a choice.
Welcome to the 'tard world/
Don't use this it's shit, use this it's great.!
No don't be an idiot that can't do this, but this can.
You know what, use what you bloody well want, if it works for you, great.
I personally use Open Office at the non-profit I help run, I use Office 2003 at home and I use Office 2010 at work. Why?
Well at the non-profit I run, costs are everything and it's does the job.
At home, Office 2003 was free (yes it;s got a valid license) and my wife knows how to use it).
At work, well as we also use sharepoint,Outlook & Lync nothing else integrates as well. I could easily use Open/Libre office, but I choose not to.
Thats the great thing here, it's choice.
Use what you like, but don't be such a dick and think your way is the right way.
Re: M$ only have themselves to blame
The reason MS, sorry M$, don't support XP is something to do with it being obsolete.
Last I looked FF, Chrome, Opera and Safari will not run on 10 year old versions of Linux or MacOS either.
Re: large size download
Odd, with MS, when you do an "online" upgrade, it only upgrades the stuff relevant to you, whereas an offline upgrade / patch / whatever, is the full version.
Kind of makes more sense that way round.
Lack of investment in densly populated area, usually with 3G connectivly...
Oh that O2
...as the NHS is amongst the largest "businesses" in the world, then they are likely to make more cock ups. Then add up how many are employed in Local and National Goverment and it suddenly become apparent why.
Now combine that with the sort of information they handle and you can see why it causes a shitstorm.
However the fines should hit the Directors, then it's soon get sorted (well it won't really, they'll just sack the poor sod who did the typo)
Can we do a reverse petition....
my non-profits website has gone up about 17 pages, now in at page 7, now that a lot of the crud (that often indirectly links to us) has gone.
So Google, thankyou.
He was still guilty.
A reduction in sentance doesn't suddenly make him squeaky clean.
Why can't "hackers" get it into there thick heads..."I was doing it to highlight weaknesses"
Yup just like the buglar broke into your house to prove you need better doors and locks;
The car thief that showed that your car needs a better immobiliser;
The mugger that shows you should have learned self defence.
There are right and wrong ways to do security testing, this was not the right way.
Re: So what?
Actaully there has been a huge push to get male teachers into schools. Still no need to use a search engine, as I have provided some lnks for you.
Re: I got some second hand food he can have
Do you know how much it cost to develop a car?
Here let me help:
"the price tag to develop a new vehicle starts around $1 billion. According to John Wolkonowicz, Senior Auto Analyst for North America at IHS Global, "It can be as much as $6 billion if it's an all-new car ....."
Show me a game that cost one 10th of that.
Re: Old point, new presentation
Because unfortunatly most people are brain dead morons who take anything that is spoon fed to them.
If you recommend trying something like al jazeera to them, they will think you are a hoodie wearing, east european peadophile terrorist that agrees with bi-weekly bin collections (the latter being the worst of all crimes)
Re: The good old days when a quick smak fixed 99% of the se problems.
Amazing isn't it.
It's ok to clobber children, but not a cat or dog.
As I disagree with your comments and think you are wrong, you will have no issue with me punching you in the face to get my point across will you?
If you have to resort to violence to get your point across, you've failed.
And yes I have 2 kids.
Re: Less secure??
Depends whos faster off the mark, my bets on the crooks.
Re: I got some second hand food he can have
I totally agree.
Please from now on can you promise to:
Buy only brand new cars,
Buy only brand new houses,
Buy only brand new electronic goods,
Buy only brand new consumables (e.g. non refirb ptoner cartridges)
Buy only brand new funiture
Buy only brand new childrens goods.
All other stuff must be scrapped and sent to landfill as buying 2nd hand hurts the manufacturers.
Oh I see, the multi £billion SOFTWARE industry is different and special somehow.
One issue with "license"
Take non-techies i.e. 99% of the population, will they understand the difference?.
As you no longer own it, I feel the should cut the price by the average resale price.
Got to love the arguement, "you can't do this with other software"...
other software f**ks the customer over, so why not games.
For sale. 1 used Xbox 720 + 150 unusable games.
Re: Yes, think different...
No self-respecting hackers would buy a service leaving credit card number just so squeeze some CPU power.
Cybercrooks, i.e. those stealing money via stolen credit card & bank details, would almost certainly use a credit card in their own name...Riiiggghhhhhtttt.
Re: War of the Worlds
As a HG Well fan you would of realised then that apart from the name, it had little else in common with the book,
as I don't recall it;
being set in America
having two kids and dog
spending only a few hours in the cellar (not several days as in the book, which show why he finally snapped)
and about 50 other things that were missed out ( the whole cylinder suspense bit, poison gas?)
Oh and where was his brother and the enitre sub plot related to that?
If they had called it, I don't know, WoW2: Battle for USA, I could of accepted it a bit more.
"so they are going for the Next Best Thing (tm) instead."
I am Mary Devoir and I belive you have stolen our trademark "The Next Best Thing"
Please pay me one hundred gazillion dollars!
Re: Still better than the current arrangement
"if you are a company that just holds patents then you are unable to use them because you don't produce anything they are covering."
So if my company invent perpetual motion and cold fusion but cannot afford to produce it, how does that work then?
What about everyones favourite company at the moment ARM? How may processsors do they make themselves?
Re: wifi and security?
Yes, because we know you cant sniff packets on a wired connection.
Re: Ace in the hole
"a unique selling point for those of us who want that sort of thing."
What? People that think higher pixel count = better quality images?
Any device is as only as good as it's worst component.
A £10,000 amp will still sound shit if played through £10 speakers
A picture from a 41 megapixel camera will still be shit through a tiny lens.
This is news?
MS have been offering Skydrive 5gb for sometime now.
With Win7 you can easily set up file syncing using Live Mesh (also availble in a fashion on Andriod)
Re: Interim Tech?
Well done, spoken like a person that doesn't have a clue what they are on about....
For starters the vast majority of your calls you make these days are VoIP at some point, you just don't know it.
"VoIP in general as annoying echo-prone unreliable things..."
Really? We handle 1.5 million external calls a month, about 3 million internal, echo, not really an issue, certainly less annoying than the drop outs you'll get via a mobile.
Unless some spanner is using speaker phone on a mobile of course.
"Granted, for International Calling, VoIP is hard to beat"
Or internal use, or interbranch use....
However the real issue with softphones that the main players just don't get, I don't want to use a headset, it's that simple.
As for slowing you pc down, Shoretel, I know your phones are butt f'ing ugly, but really, slow a pc down really? I've never noticed. Then again I also run a SIP proxy and PBX on my laptop as well....
Re: The ST was 32 bits
I had a Falcon, awesom bit of Kit.
Mine had a 040 upgrade, a Maths coprocessor upgrade, 16mb of RAM (I think) and 1GB HDD!
Running Cubase VST (with multitrack D2D recording!) it utterly destroyed anything the other manufacturers could muster.
Was tempted with the 060 upgrade, but I would need to sell the car to pay for it!
Ah happy days.
Back to Old school
I'd like to say War of the Worlds by H G Wells (Time machine pretty good, Invisible Man, not so) and grab a copy of the Sentinal by Arthur C. Clarke (a collection of short stories)
Reading these gives you an idea of old school thinking of Sci-Fi and highlight how bloody good these guys were. Reading the Sential will scare you when you see the dates they they were written and how close they are to modern reality.
...pop open a street box and hey presto....That's what I'm presuming.
being an ex-employee, he proberbly had a master key.
