If facebook disappeared tomorrow, I wouldn't bat an eyelid.
If google disappeared tomorrow, the internet would be as painful as it was in 1999 again. Anyone remember how much better google search was than everything else?
And no, bing is not good enough.
The MD player/recorder itself was pretty good - the software that came with it (Sonic Stage?) was truly abominable.
Why not just...
Why couldn't they have done it the other way round - provide a browser (Chrome) that runs a given list of websites (crappy old intranet sites, list provided by network admin) in something like IE tab, and everything else in Chrome.
Those that want it can install it, those that don't, don't. And it gives people a way out of IE6 while making their old sites still work.
Just curious - where did it say "Unauthorized"?
Was there something on the web page they looked at that said "all our customer data is at this url: XXXXX. No Unauthorised Access Permitted"?
Just to say
The only gam eI have ever played that made me lose entire weekends regularly.
Silverlight is dead!
What next for the bastardised half arsed Moonlight version?
Blah blah title
Is that a hint of sarcasm?
Re: if it works as well as on windows
Putting aside the C# vs Java debate for the moment, .NET will NEVER work as well on other platforms as it does on Windows.
It's not in MS' interest.
(Java works well on every thing ;) )
$2499 to be able to redistribute Mono code?
You could just write things in Java for free, and write code that works on all platforms, not just a crippled version of a Microsoft Java ripoff.
What's Java and .NET got to do with anything?
Is this real AAC support?
Or only Apple encoded AAC support, like the Creative Zen?
£360 per day? As a labourer? It can't be that unpleasant shovelling horse shit that they need to pay that much...
It's EKE out. EKE!
In the words of Rev. Ian Paisley
No, no, no, NO!
PDF plugins that run directly in the browser are the devil's spawn.
If I want to download and read a PDF, I want to do it in a proper PDF reader, not some bastardised helfbreed that takes over my browser, stops it responding for minutes while it loads all its chuff, and doesn't have half the functions of a standalone PDF reader.
First plugin I install in Firefox (after AdBlock), is the PDFDownload one that stops the Adobe's bloody acrobat reader taking over my page.
Windows server desktop
> Windows Server ships with a fancy desktop, media player and all, so where's RHEL's version?
No it doesn't, you have to install the 'Desktop Experience' to get a media player.
I've still got mine...
Sad, I know.
What are oracle doing?
The security sandbox of Java is supposed to be one of its main selling points...
Pull your finger out and fix it, you bellends.
I agree with everything you just said.
I nominate Nigel 11 for the post of chief science advisor.
Expanded polystyrene has virtually no shock absorbing qualities?
That'll by why they use it in crash helmets then
I second that!
Trying to search for bugs on connect.microsoft.com that I have entered and know the exact title for still doesn't turn anything up.
