Can I pull the....
"Or that ANY home user would TOLERATE that situation." Most "home" users are not tech savvy as the people that read The Register. So long as their internet works the average Joe would be oblivious if their home router was hackable.
On the subject of wankers........
Re: I suggest..........
Think the US will leave him well alone to be honest. They got egg on there face over this farce & the only winners in this case are the lawyers. A 10 year case, thank you very much ladies & gentlemen where do we cash in these cheques......
One of the few things Apple do is let you replace hardware if its there fuck-up! Few years back I had a MAC Book Pro that was out of warranty & due to a known fault with that model they replaced it, even tho it was well over 6 months past the 1 year warranty. Only thing I will say was the issue did not manifest until I upgraded from 10.6 to 10.8 if memory serves me right.
Thinking about it HP/Compaq have also done the same thing before for me. Replaced hardware even tho it was out of warranty but it was a known fault.
Re: Loved the original arcade version
Double Dragon was one of the few games I could do on one credit! That & Golden Axe, both easy games to clock. :)
A bug in IE that could potentially...
... let some one take control of your machine. History repeating? See you in the comments section about this time next year for the next one.
Please do your homework on what Windows 1 was...... it was a file manager for DOS & not a OS.
Unless your just about to rock my world.... so please go ahead, I'm all ears so to speak.
... was so much better than Windows 1.
..... I'm showing my age as I had to Google both of them. Kathy Lloyd & Maria Whitaker when I were a wee lad what now seems like centuries ago!
Re: Dearly departed.
"No other details are available at this time." Lies…. his last reported words were "I REGRET NOTHING!" ;)
Anyone else hate that term?
I'll go back to sleep now!!!
@ Amorous Cowherder
I've been doing it 20 years & people still store work in the recycle bin. I had an "incident" last week which went to HR. So if you can't educate against people STILL doing this how can you educate them into very basic security?
Re: |'m not quite sure I get it
"An iMac looks very swish and neat on the receptionist's desk - but for the power users I'm not quite sure how they're expected to justify the cost." I have a few power users (doing design, basic video editing & all manor of technical stuff) on IMAC's. So long as you don't have to be mobile, they are quite a good alternative to Mac Pro's with a screen, saves on desk space…. well underneath the desks anyway :)
….. can you play Doom on it?
... never quite got into it, being a big fan of Elite in the 80/90's you would have thought it would have been right up my street.
The new "Elite - Dangerous" (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1461411552/elite-dangerous) might be too late. Never know!
Symantec Endpoint Protection….
Like using water as sun cream! Not effective!
Re: did he damage the roof of the building
"1 I think I can fly - drugs etc" /facepalm…. such a cliché statement.
To quote Bill Hicks " 'Young man on acid, thought he could fly, jumped out of a building. What a tragedy.' What a dick! Fuck him, he’s an idiot. If he thought he could fly, why didn’t he take off on the ground first?"
Re: Best. Game. Ever.
Track & Field came before DTD if memory serves me right. Went through a few keyboards with that game.
Both good games :)
* Edit just done my home work, DTD was released on the home computer before Track & Field. There you go, what does this old fart know lol
Lend me a tenner Reginaldo Silva….
…. still got another week till I get paid! I'll use the money to test my DDOS/SQL/Flux Capacitor injection technique on the beer pumps in my local. In theory it works, but I need to test it in the wild! ;)

Will be LMI..
… who soon. Even Chrome supports remote desktop sessions for free. So many alternatives (been a teamviewer use for years now) wonder if they are going to go the way of Real & end up on the scrap heap of technology/software we used to use.
Not for his lawyers. They must be making a small fortune protecting his name/image. Think I'm in the wrong job some times.
Re: Can you buy fish sticks with it?
@ Crisp... That amused me no end :) Keep up the good work ;)
Think there website has been hacked....
... some evil little shite has defaced the website & put "a world leader in mobile communications" on there!
Come in BB your time is up. Palm & Nokia have a place for you in the tech retirement home with them!

Sorry I tried my dam hardest to be down with the youth of today..... My excuse is that I have failed to have my morning cup of tea & bacon sandwich. Mental note, NEVER attempt humor with out bacon!... EVER! :)
Re: This and Space Harrier
I managed to save a 4 player Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles machine from the tip back in the late 90's. It's been sat in my sisters garage ever since, gathering dust. I bet it does not even turn on now!
This does mean I can legally play it on M.A.M.E tho ;)
Re: Block by IMEI
I never understood why they don't do it state side. Back in Blighty I know they do this. Simple solution.... to a problem & people want to over complicate it?
Politicians make promises all the time, they never keep.....

Re: "Huawei says US probe had 'predetermined outcome'"
LOL now that was funny...
Nice way to get some FREE press....
.. for MGK. Do wonder who told him to be a "bad boy gangsta thug". Did he work that out himself, or did the artist management team behind him tell him to do it?
"You will be the most 'biatchin' gansta' ever if you do it"
"But I don't want too"
"Do it or we pull your contract! You need some press coverage"
We need a Bill Hick icon.... for those that know.....

A computer that you can only surf the web on....... They are called Mobile phones & most of us have them now.
Just warning you all but ........
......... My gold plated butt-plug business is being sued by Apple.
Apparently they have a patent for overpriced crap for arseholes.
Sorry if this has been posed before.... some one emailed me it today & it amused me no end ;)
Anyone know what CDN.....
.... WikILeaks was using, so we know to avoid them.
IT & women......
To any female reg reader who's thinking of taking a job (or starting a career) in IT, its not all doom & gloom out their. "Lady Lien" works for a real nice company. She is treated as equal to anyone else at her skill level. So don't be put off applying for for a job or taking a qualification.
Only bad thing about "Lady Lien" working in IT..... its hard to hide the "Grumble" ;)
... love it. Been using it to make terminal scripts since Apple messed up TextEdit. I don't think I'll ever go back to TextEdit unless they drastically improve it.
Onxy & FontNuke are well handy too.
.... wonder how much money the Lawyers have made out of this case by making it run this long?
... don't think anyone gives too shites anymore what the Pope thinks about anything.
The religious mo-mo's have lost there grip on being able to dictate to the masses years ago & ever since then we have been able to enjoy life a bit more.
Beer, because everyone loves a nice pint :)
Bloody hell, I stand guilty as charged.... its always a surprise when my partner lets me have some :)
Head Over Heels? To be honest there are way to many games for the speccy that I still play. Saboteur still gets played quite often.
Re: Er wrong!
Always found that a bit strange that your so pro-life you feel the urge to kill.... Could that be one of the better examples of the oxymorons that can reside in human nature?
Re: Hardcore Charlie
You mean junglist....... Its my religion.... I'm off to kane my M-Beat tunes at a loud volumes just like back in 94 ;)
... has been on its way out since the late 80's, or thats what everyone was telling me when I started my "black crack" habit back in 88. The 1210's I got in 95 have been going strong since. Might have had a shed load of needle changes, but decks were built to last...

Mail app on IOS 5...
... is really bad for crashing when you reply to emails. I've worked out if you delete the entire email thread before you reply its fine. Very strange bug in the application. You have thought this would have been found in testing.
