How to Get Ahead in Advertising
We are trying out new formats for our DevOps coverage - and area much more talked about than practiced. QA's DevOps team volunteered to help us out with how-tos, 101s and blogs - here is another one, about Docker, by Kat, and no we didn't charge.
Our website is hosted by Peer 1 in Portsmouth. Not sure what Netcraft is picking up there - although we do use Cloudflare as our CDN - and it has data centres everywhere.
Fair play to you for declaring an interest here - and for that you get your post published.
I think it must be an Americanism.
In the UK illegal drugs are classified in three categories: Class A, Class B, Class C
So Class A is Britslang for the most addictive drugs - e.g. heroin, cocaine.
Class As - plural - means multiple drugs. And that is how it should be spelled / spelt.
I.Geller you have made this identical post in three articles now - wassup?
We use Cloudflare so I am guessing that your post was the one in 10.
For the record, we have had three or four complaints about Tor and Captchas. But we value the ability to keep the site up against spammers and other threats more than the very few individuals who are inconvenienced.
This is what Cloudflare has to say about Tor:
>>> Due to the behaviour of some individuals using the Tor
>>> network (spammers, distributors of malware, attackers,
>>> etc.), the IP addresses of Tor exit nodes generally earn
>>> a bad reputation. Our basic protection level issues
>>> CAPTCHA-based challenges to visitors whose IP
>>> address has a high threat score.
Frankly, frank ly, that was an inevitable first post.
Then this offer is not for you! However, there are plenty of people who like to read their magazines on paper.
Nope - we signpost when comments are disabled or no longer accepted.
Thanks for the screenshot - but it is unclear what is being triggered here. Forwarded to our ops team.
BTW we have included third party adverts on El Reg since 1998.
It's cloud, it's infrastructure. It's infrastructure in the cloud. And Dell gets a nod in the article....
I have reviewed this and have unbanned Shadow Systems.
The pic above the article is a woman holding this phone.
Some articles are pre-moderated. Some anonymous posters are pre-moderated - I don't remember the (automated) criteria. Some commenters are flagged for pre-moderation. I can confirm that you are not in this category.
Hardly equivalent... very few are affected by our Windows app - a fraction of the numbers who use our Android and Apple apps. we are updating those - but have no intention of updating the Windows apps. Sorry, but time+ money just don't add up for us.
Thanks for the heads up - forwarded to our ads op team.
If you have time please ping them email@example.com and let them know what antivirus software your workplace is using.
Thanks for the link, Chris. Duly noted and updated.
You must be right, surely.
But employers are not blind, are they?
you can also withdraw one of the posts....
usage dictates meaning. "On premise" is here to stay - probably because it sounds right.
He is on the buy side - not the supply side.
Microsoft is a huge deal and Windows 10 is a huge deal - it affects hundreds of millions of consumers - and millions of businesses. And it launched this week. Readers want to know more about it.
Normal service will be resumed shortly - mind-you I think you will find we have been publishing plenty of IT stories that do not mention Microsoft.
I also use m.thereg on my phone. I have not noticed broken links for related stories at bottom of articles - has anyone else?
Much less takeup for Windows Phone app compared with Android and iPhone. This simply isn't a priority for us - but if a plucky reader wants to take up the banner we will do everything we can to help.
No permissions - articles in full - offline reading - not bloated.
Responsive is the way to go - and we are prepping - but there is a ton of work for us involved. But in the meantime...
Functionally, m.theregister.co.uk has just about everything that www. has - so I am not sure what needs updating.
On apps - plenty of people like to read via apps, especially for offline reading. So if we - or our readers - can facilitate this, then why not?
Up to a point... There was no #3. Will Shock You!
Our servers are at Peer 1 in Portsmouth.
No we haven't moved to Costa Rica - our servers are based in Portsmouth. However, the CDN we use - Cloudflare - has data centres everywhere, including Costa Rica, I believe.
Forward to tech for perusal
It was a bug, kinda bad UI, and was fixed yesterday so today it's become an imaginary problem.
P.S. Thanks for the report.
I think that is Murphy's Law in evidence - but for sub-editors. McClain is no longer doubled up.
You kinda need to sign in to a jobs site - so JobServe can behave this way.
We used to have a much longer message / acceptance - but it was too intrusive for mobile. So along with most UK publishers we eased up on the message side. We are confident that we are complying with the law and equally confident that readers who don't want cookie know how to wipe them after each session.
Belated response -I have forwarded to our ops team. Hopefully they will sort it out for next time we run a mini-poll.
Matt - for you, I think.
How can we stop this in future?
ooh - get you.
Thank-you, amanfromMars. We can always rely on you for a sense of perspective.
Very good... fixed!
Did you actually read it?
Umm - fixed!
Am forwarding your post to people running shop - to see if they can figure out what is not going on.
We don't care if other suppliers are shipping to the USA. But they are flouting US law...
Where I live, yes.
Mobile version - noted - added to task list.
