To be fair....
you have to bow to the commentards level.
Like if Adobe flash has an flaw, that means Windoze is full of holes (even when it's multi platform)
Re: Worthless conditionals
Don't give me wishy-washy possibilities: anything might do anything. Tell me what will or does happen - or stop wasting people's time.
Is it illegal, to drink and drive on a pavement whilst blindfolded? Not one person has clarified that particular point for me.
If you want to know then read the DPA. They can't cover 25 billion possibilities of what may happen.

Yeah, because every bit of android software is legit?
Do you want "PostaPic" to access your email?
99.9999999999% will blindly choose yes.
Oh look here are your banking credentials, your website credentials and every bit of confidential information whizzing it's way to Russia or China.
"What surprises me in all this, that it's got equal coverage to all the really good stuff that was presented yesterday."
Yes, it's called balance.

...I'd like to refer you to the line.
"At least Blighty's entrant into the southwest London tennis competition stands a chance of winning – having prevailed last year."
Should the afore mention chap lose, then I expect, no, I demand, this to be amended to:
"At least Scotland's entrant into the southwest London tennis competition stands a chance of winning – having prevailed last year.
Where the hell were the automatic systems to detect fraud?
If I started pulling 10+k out of my account via ATM, I'd sure as hell would like them to suspend the payments, and as pointed out, is there no daily limit on these withdraws?
This just makes no sense, unless these banks are either incompetent or corrupt and in on the act.
That is all.

Re: Author retains copyright
Because unlike a major, they still "take" your music and "sell" it, even if you don't want them to. Something even the majors don't do.

Re: And in the mean time
So why are you typing on a IT forum instead of working to end the above?
Get yourself on TED and you'll realise happiness bears little relation to wealth. (check out the speeches by monks and you'll see why).
Now come here and have a hug.
Re: Try voice recognition over VOIP or Skyphone links
First thing I'd recommend is the organisation sack who ever can't implement VoIP properly. A proper system is BETTER than POTS.
Unless you are talking about a connection over a PoS link, when it shouldn't be used.
...exactly do you "pause" a messed up rollout? Surely that just leaves it paused as a messed up roll out?
Still I trust labour, they have a proven track record when it comes to IT roll outs....sorry, I had a funny turn then, my mistake.
A big fat pipe carrying all the traffic of the biggest data whore in the world? Talk about a gift horse.
Now get your head out your ass and grow up...
GCHQ certifies it is secure....
well that's Ok as those guys have been proven trustworthy when it come to keeping things private.
Re: No IBM?
Or more simply they already have a licensing deal...
That's because you are clearly over 25 and are no down with da kids...
Or just not stupid enough to hand over all your personal details to some random person on the web.
Re: re: NOT ALL programs use gpu properly
You are the only one that said it's an abbreviation, he never stated that it was.You also presume he is not "American", he has not stated his country of origin, it is something you have made up.
So loose the pedant icon and replace with a prejudice icon, it would be much more appropriate.
Claims mean nothing

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.

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.

"....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
Re: "More from wikipedia than shame"
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....
"but I don't think courts have the authority to tell me how to think."

Re: solving the wrong problem
Excellent idea, that'll mean Google, Yahoo, facebook, Twiiter and MS will go bankrupt within a week.
