Fantastic effort. If I had to comment on one thing, linking to the saynoto0870 website would be a big help - most mobile contracts don't include non-geographical numbers in their call plans, so a number that uses part of your call plan allowance would save people even more money.
Maybe they can pay off a bit of their tax bill with this?
Re: Alternating Succuess
You missed Win 2K - very good (IMHO)
I'm perfectly aware of what Telnet is. Otherwise I wouldn't have a client already installed (and used every now and again) on my machine to try it, would I?
You can't telnet into the server now though... Also, there are newsletters dating back to January 1992, which is over 20 year ago in my book.
Still, takes you back.
Hmmm...,they need to sort out their filters - I was trying to search for a local hostelry at my local Hungry Horse (owned by Greene King) and clicking on the links Google provided wouldn't be let through their system.
Adobe have been more pro-active with releasing updates to CF0 & 10 than they ever have been on earlier versions. Blaming them is a tad harsh.
Rubbish - we've not got Virgin (or any cable, come to that) here but have FTTC.
This could actually help. Having a datestamped copy lodged with the BL will aid in proving ownership.
Beer, because it's almost lunchtime.
What is it with the good guys?
Douglas Adams died too young, and now this. At least Pterry is still writing.
Lantau island is the obvious place, because a lot of undersea cables land at Tong Fuk (no, that's not a typo - a friend of mine lives there and I've stayed with him!)
Sir George Cayley.
Who has a pathetically small area devoted to him at the Air & Space in DC. Worse, the curator at the big one had never even heard of him, despite the Wright brothers openly admitting they'd got inspiration from him
Where will they end up?
Somebody please say the Smithsonian. Next to Discovery please.
I've been using Reader for years, probably the third most used Google product after search and mail. Obviously the resources it was consuming is too much and isn't being adequately supported by ad revenue, but the "if it works, don't fix it" mantra should have stepped in.
Not happy at all. It's how I've been consuming my news from tech, local news sites, F1, & all sorts for years. Hell, we've got a decent number of subscribers for our RSS feed that contains new products added to our site.
Re: I get feeds on my MeeGo N950 phone
Can't see it - that would reduce the clicks to the site and reduce advertising revenue.
Re: Free delivery better
I was offered a free trial for Prime last year when I purchased a BluRay for a christmas present. Despite the delivery address clearly showing it was a business address, HDN tried to deliver it at 10pm at night!
Have they not learnt from the proliferation of Pirate Bay proxies that are out there?
PayPal & NFC
I have a PayPal NFC card which is linked to my bank account. I've tried using it at my local Wetherspoons and it's been declined about 75% of the time.
So, they've got a way to go before I could fully rely on it.
Are "stationary" supplies ones that don't move very much?
Try using the API to create an event in a group, private or public. FB whinges that you don't have the necessary permission, so when you try to request to add that permission it says it doesn't exist.
From what I can see, this has been a documented problem for at least four months. SO when I hear about Facebook working on bug fixes, I'm not holding my breath
Somebody needs to look at F1 charts to see how to do these kind of graphs properly.
I remember PCN, and I really wanted a MX-80A back then, but way out of my pocket money range!
Happy memories. Now, back to that graph...
deltree / rmtree *.* /s be better?
Very, very interesting article. Thank you.
I have several email addresses for various purposes, and changing it from the default is a right faff, click on "from" then the dropdown, then the address you want to send it from.
Old version, click on option list, select email, complete.
Changed back until it's forced on me.
I spotted an option to promote a post I made - for just under £5.
What are they thinking?
Does anybody know if the £5 a month for overseas use can be purchased ad-hoc, or do you have to stump up for it for the duration of your contract?
Still reeling for one phone call in America that cost me over £10...
I had one of those.
Plus side - taking it to America and amazing the people I showed it to how our British tech was doing
Minus side - it wiping a cash card because I left it underneath it's speaker.
Been here before?
"It's easy to imagine a Virgin Mobile 4G network, using Small Cells in customer homes and bolted to lamp posts around the cities"
Anybody remember Rabbit?
Went to the Smithsonian museum at Dulles airport where Discovery now lives, two things that struck me was a) it's a bit smaller than I expected and
b) It's in need of a good wash.
Mind you, if I'd gone round the world that number of times I'd be a bit grubby two.
Am still pleased they kept the 'u' in Endeavour - shame they couldn't have brought it to Whitby!
32% of our Windows IE users last month used IE8
Mind you, 338 people used IE6.
If this gets people to upgrade, then hurrah. Getting it past corporate policy maybe not.
I checked the mapping tool on my website (which only gets about 2.5K visitors a month, and E1, N1 etc. come up fine.
BT, can I have a job please?
Not for me
I'm not touching Apple until they start using USB.
Which, of course they never will as it would kill their accessory market.
So much for standardising across manufacturers to reduce the number of chargers you need.
I'm going to be in the queue for one of those, what the reviewer doesn't mention is as well as the tablet, it also comes with a detachable keyboard, so you've effectively got a phone, tablet and (admittedly 10") net-top in one package.
Any ideas on a release date?
Why bother with fibre if 4G delivers the speeds it is promising?
()and who came up with that logo? the people that did the Lisa Simpson blowjob one?!)
There has to be some reason to live there, possibly the most depressing state I've been to (out of about 20)
Where does that figure come from? The ones we have here (Scarborough) are only a little higher - and narrower - than the analogue boxes.
Must admit, the new cabinet that covers my house is stuck in the middle of a piece of grass, across the road from the old box, which is also in teh middle of a piece of grass. I don't understand why they couldn't put the new ones next to it's analogue cousin, maybe somebody can enlighten?
Re: You're missing the point slightly
No, it's one to one. Used to be when it started, but I think the BBC ramped up their CDN system into a few ISP's
Re: Don't be silly...
Yes, but if something is infinitely improbable, it must be finitely probable....
Why can't we have one company operating the masts, who then lease usage back to the operators?
A little bit how TV transmission works, is what I'm thinking.
Most of the Tesco Express shops are leased, and they have "Eddie" driving all their lorries.
Re: eBay better catch up quickly
Collect+ will connect to your eBay account to collect delivery information.
I've used them once - took almost two weeks for the parcel to get from my shop to the buyer.
Re: Stop this nonsense
Well, my friend lives in the wonderfully named Tong Fuk in a single building house, and his connection speed was (is) in the range of the figures quoted
Might be a coincidence that most of the intercontinental cables land there as well...
NASA does have copyright, but they don't enforce it.
(Many) years ago a company I worked for wanted a picture of Earth for the front of their brochure, sent off a request to NASA who sent back a few slides to let us do what we wanted with them. Still have them somewhere.
Re: App World ghost town
Fully agree. As a portable media centre with HDMI it's great for plugging into hotel TV's, but a useful app, such as an RDP client for £15? Sorry, no way.
