Something like this then?
That's easy, get Virgin to open up their networks to other suppliers.
So the hundreds of millions of small clubs, shops, cafes, local information sites etc, that do little more than have a basic html site, should get expensive "experts" in to reconfigure the site, get the certs etc, all because there is bloody great warning saying Ooo look this site is dangerous and nasty, when all they are trying find out is what time the fucking place is open?
How is going to pick up the bill for this?
Linux.conf.au Chair Cherie Ellis writes that “I have contacted it [the Live Cam Awards] twice asking it to consider changing the hashtag that it's using, and I haven't had a reply.
But we are not going to consider changing ours either.
not strictly true, the are millions and millions of free IP4 addresses, but the companies and governments that "own" them are hanging onto them for no good reason.
They have form in this area, the sensible answer is go fuck yourselves and make every email / letter public and get the papers / social media behind you.
Imagine that the same kind of service went out for IT.
Do you have any friends and relatives? Never heard the phrase "I got .... to look at it. He messed around with it for a while and now it doesn't work"
The last time I took a taxi in Paris it made bungee jumping with a bit of old string off the empire state look safe!
The guy was going 90km whilst reading the newspaper and talking to someone on the phone! Of course when he nearly side-swiped a lorry in the other lane he did the only thing he knew, blast his horn and curse a lot!
Most terrifying trip of my life, even beating the coach with back wheels hanging over a cliff edge as we took a bend!
As the IRA was mostly funded by citizens of the USA, I want all US domains to go to victims of their murders.
Also I believe citizens of Cuba, Grenada, Iraq, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Vietnam, Cambodia and many others also would like a quiet word...
...lovely chatting to you all, it's been fun
Ok hands up who just searched Amazon only to be disapointed?
A cousin actually was paid by Tesco for a similar instance. The assistant and manager checked and rechecked before giving the money. They had a choice of not selling an pee'ing of a customer or selling at reduced negative price and giving the refund.
If they hadn't given the refund and say sold for 0p, the the till's wouldn't balanced and it would look like the till operator was short changing people.
like the old cast iron radiators we used to scrap all the time when I was a builder
And now they are worth a small fortune....now doubt in a pile next to the Belfast sinks everyone got rid of.
Please do enlighten me, why I should risk taking down a key system that has run perfectly for 14 years, without issue, just because the software is out of date? It's beat 5 9's uptime, so just by swapping it out, will put it in a lower uptime from day 1.
But please feel free to point it out my error.
" I would have grave doubts about doing business with any firm that refuses to replace equipment...."
If you have a 10 year old pc running W2K on a bit of old hardware day in day out, without failing, why replace it and risk it falling over every day, because someone says you need the latest version.
Would you apply the same to all hardware?
I've known farmers with 50 year old tractors, printing presses that are close on 60 years old. They all work and keep working and do they job that is needed.

Custom wall papers have been around for a long time, as well a extra large format prints.
Surprised people have only just discovered them!
"Well, they would have seen some naked bodies performing the kinds of acts that resulted in their existance...."
That entirely depends on the movie, not sure about you but I don't think in any way what occurs in two girls one cup ever resulted in my birth.
We had a UPS literally blow up, chucking battery acid all over the place and catching fire. When that happens, you have to kill ALL power to the site.
...as Danishland is being targeted by Google AdWords, GOOGLE should be blocking All Danish IP addresses .
Why? really WHY would you spend that money on effectively a MONO device (when you have 50cm of separation, it really is just a mono device pretending to be stereo.
You can't cram decent speakers into a 10mm thick enclosure, it's that simple.
Hmm it's actually a grey area...The police stance:
"Using barbed/razor wire and broken glass in order to stop people getting in to your home is not advisable. You are making yourself liable to civil action as you owe a duty of care to ensure that visitors to your property are reasonably safe. Odd as it may seem, you also owe a duty of care to trespassers."
another couple of points of view:
The Criminal Justice Act 2003 provides some protection to householders. If a trespasser suffers an injury during the course of a crime, for which he is subsequently convicted and for which he could be sent to prison, he will only be able to sue the householder if he gets the court’s permission to do so....."
Note it says convicted and "sent to prison"
....there are more grey areas on the the site:
Yup, same reason you can't use razor wire on your fence in case the low life scum bag hurts himself.
"well, they shouldn't have tried to photograph a cop/politician/journalist."
But it's ok for them to photograph / video you when you are not committing any offence. Go figure.
Have the asked the consumers?

So speaketh a non-parent!
So speaketh the parent of 2 girls, one preschooler and one primary age, both of whom prefer CBBC to Cbeebies.
Compared to CITV and others, the BBC ones blow them out of the water on content.
Right on brother! Power to the people.
Or maybe you are missing the fact that the primary audience for BBC3, tends to consume music, video and TV online, so actually it is the right channel, if any, to move off over-the-air.
You also failed to mention the facts that shit like Don't tell the bride is being dumped in favour of as they term it, long term programming.
With the release in budget, it allows CBBC, which actually has some good stuff for kids, to be extended, getting over the absurd situation where Cbeebies is on till later at night,
But still, Wolfie, sock it to the suits. Just remember to pick up socialist worker on the way home.
Good luck....not many out there, unless you go Chinese.
Love what you did with the $ sign there....really original and witty.
"if you utilise a scheme which clearly diverts profits out of the UK, you have to tell us, and then justify those actions"
OK we did it to maximise profits.
There, simple enough Mr Taxman?

Ha ha ha haaa haaa ha ha haaaaa!
Sorry, you're serious aren't you?
Just so far every single comment has one down vote.
Never said the concept is useless, but to say it will fix congestion is utter horse shit. Live in the West Midlands where hundreds of roads cross over, run under and run parallel to motorways and you will realise this isn't going to happen.
This is the UK where roads are densely packed and cell signal triangulation is nowhere near accurate enough to locate a vehicle that is causing a traffic jam. I think the multitude of cameras and people calling on mobiles will be much more accurate.
Where it will be very useful is quieter country roads where you may fly of a lane and cars go by without noticing you, if there are any cars at all.
So this magic system can tell if I'm on the motorway or the road passing over it? I'm impressed.
"They also say it will reduce road congestion."
How does it do that without tracking a vehicles movement and periodic polling?
Or I can summarize a little differently.
Power hungry wanted more power, without any form of oversight, election or mandate, on the pretext they were filling a gap in governance.
In the real world, we would call this a dictatorship.
"the Android Studio IDE, to escape from the Chocolate Factory's near-impenetrable Beta compound."
I thought Beta = public go live for Google?
it only stop being beta when it a) generate enough advertising stream to go live, or b) generates little advertising revenue and is canned.
(best to sound that you're in a foul mood). I can't help you know . I've just got the kids to sleep,and you've just woken them up, thanks. <hang up>
Seriously it works all the time, even if it's 3am and it's a top director.
...wow a ship laying phone lines almost 70 years ago, somehow is tied up with GCHQ today?
Next weeks head line.
GPO are terrorists as exchange used in 1947 handled a phone call made in 2013 to a convicted terrorist.
Shame, it could of been a interesting article without the crap.
Or by default, maybe it should be unticked? Opt in rather than opt out.
otherwise this lot would be in trouble.
"...blizzard in Reykjavik during the Winter Solstice...."
Iceland is one of the biggest users of "green" energy out there, with most of it coming from geothermal and hydro power.
So lets flip your argument, "so unless you can use hydro damns in the middle of the Sahara, then why bother."
See how much of a dick you look now?
was to post endless pictures of meals and cats. Seriously people, it's a fucking cat, the fact it's sat on a shelf / sofa, table, window ledge or anything else, does NOT make an interesting post, it's fucking boring! As for showing a plate of food, really, I don't fucking care...really and I don't give a shit you are having a meal at <insert restaurant> with someone I've never heard of!.
I've taken my girls (3 & 6) to the natural history museum twice, we haven't even seen the dinosaurs yet. They love to spend their time with the the fossils and the geology section.
Our favourite museum is still the Think Tank in Birmingham, some of the exhibits are a bit battered now, but most things are hands on and the outdoor science garden is fantastic. It's more geared for younger kids, but even teens seem to have fun. As for the adults, they can usually be found making the arch bridge in the garden, or looking at the pumping engines.
...Ooo I've had iPods for ages and never had an issue.
