Re: Parking Rant
I disagree. If you park with your drivers-side door 1 inch from the line, I'm going to assume that you get in and out via the passenger door. And if I had noticed you standing behind your vehicle BEFORE I walked out of the Walgreen's on the corner of Riverside & 120, I would have gone back inside and had a discussion with the pharmacist.
Re: No property rights
I don't think it would make a difference to you.
What if I want both sides to lose?
Nuclear-grade zirconium? I thought Zr was just for faux diamond rings; wouldn't making it nuclear-grade kind of defeat the purpose?
Of course, my confusion might be caused by lack-of-sleep.
Re: How about a little perspective here?
Well, he could always offer to loft birds for India or China.
I hope he debugged it before returning it
He should get together with someone at one of the TV stations that have them and see what he can demonstrate for their cameras. Or better yet, someone at a local police station (with the same news crew in tow) and see just how fast the FAA revokes all of the permits...
I think the author is trying to indicate that El Reg's keypounders have a monopoly on snark, euphemism, and all else, and that they transform otherwise mundane articles about, yes, the mundane into glistening and wholly you-would-get-marked-off-for-this prose.
re: world-wide rights.
True, but then they'd only be able to sell the rights once, instead of 142 time (or however many countries there are today.)
Re: Ease of development?
You've just set a bad example. Not only did you follow-up your own post, but you provided the link that answered your original question.
Now everyone's going to do this.
You need to comment on this article about your not-article and give us a link to it so that the rest of us can abuse you in the comments.
Re: Bedtime stories
No, it's not. It's more HATE, goddamnit.
Re: Thousands or more T&Cs need to be read over lifetime
It's not too late for you to propose that (#3) in the next IETF draft spec.
(Can you imagine going into a phone shop and saying "I don't think this term x is reasonable, will you change it for me please"?)
I have. I then drove around the corner to one of their competition and transferred my business there.
Re: Missed the Mark
You seem to have forgotten that Amazon sells some products at a loss. Remember the iBooks lawsuits?
ah, Scott Lowe's how-tos...
I found his site early on and was overjoyed that I didn't have to have any prior knowledge to follow his examples...because at the time, I didn't. So many heres-how-you-do-this sites are missing trivial, yet crucial, steps that you only find out about on the 8 page of comments...or after borking everything.
Re: I wonder if anyone else found themselves...
Nah, but I did recognize most of them.
I, for one, used to be able to type single-handedly at a respectable wpm.
Re: Microsoft [...] is supplying only what is ordered by a judge, according to laws of USA.
I think you'll find, that there are places in New York and Washington, where the fiber cables cross the border simply so that the traffic can be collected 'because it's crossing the U.S. border".
I've got my tin-foil coat, now where's my hat.
lets just think about it for a second.
What if, instead of Mr. Snowden - IT guy, the person who got fed up was a f-18 pilot, or b-2 pilot. Obviously, the b-52 pilot would have to convince a few people to go along, but the results would be similar. Can you imagine a b-2 making a bombing run against The Pentagon or NSA headquarters?
Re: World of Warcraft
I think the critical word there was 'useless.'
Re: Translation from MS BOFH speak to English...
I think they probably manually changed the GPO back and started issuing gpupdate /force on one server at a time.
BTW, don't use the escape key in windows, because it either does nothing or deletes everything you've typed.
Re: Maybe they should use LDAP instead...
Some knucklehead decided that a database is the place to store DNS records because BIND configuration files are just oh-so-complicated-and-tricky....but I guess its better than storing DNS data in the registry...
I used to manage a VitalQIP farm of 14 or so dns servers, and while the data in QIP was stored in a database, the dns servers used machine-generated industry-standard BIND config files, so that in the event of the inevitable OHSHIT moment, you could manually log into the dns servers and fix things.
You know why its 6000 and not ~50.
Because few of those 50 are headquartered in the U.S. and these laws would mean, should mean and do mean exactly nothing to a company whose enterprise is wholly outside of the U.S.
I thought that elliptical curves were weak
Because the NSA chose the points on the curve.
Is that called Haiku gaming?
Re: But still, no Reg SSL.
Here! Here! Create your own CA and sign your own certificate. I'd add it to my trusted CAs.
how can I get s list of the botnet's ips
I'd love to add them to my deny-all rules.
is Bose backordered on noise-cancellation headsets
I'll be buying a set before I fly again.
You don't think he got accustomed to the noise, do you?
Heroine's are bad?
I don't think so.
I think I'll print a sign and take it to my local Wells-Fargo and see what the branch manager thinks.
Re: Class 1 A.I
Where do you feel that you, yourself, should be placed on that list?
Re: be careful what you wish for...
What you may have missed (presumably) is that once you read the entire documentation set, you'll know how, and more importantly, why to do things using the software.
Hooray, I can edit my potss.
Re: Spot on.
I never read the DEC manuals (that wasn't my machine,) but I did read all of the Honeywell manuals for CP-6. Less than a month later I was promoted from lab assistant to system administrator.
I will admit to being waaaay over my head while reading the PL/6 manual.
All of the manuals, that I need to read today, have been written as lists of commands and options...and that's mostly it. No well reasoned examples that tell you how to do ______. Just "Here's what the command looks like with all of its mutually exclusive options" crap.
Re: @Smurfette: *Do* opt out
Yes, and it's me.
I'd like to complain that there aren't enough hours in a day to watch all of of the new porn on the Internet.
Used to be, it took 10 minutes to download an image. Now I can download an hour-long video in 3 minutes.
That reminds me. I need a 2nd video card for my computer as I've run out of space for new windows.
Re: Before picture
Seriously, who uses a roomba on their countertops?
Re: Crowdsourcing common sense?
Why in gods name would I want to do that?
thank you for this:
" SHA-2 set of functions: SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512"
I guess I speed-read over this fact before.
Re: How do we know
is AES-GCM elliptical? I've not heard of it.
