Please mention Da Boom!!
New laptop stuffed with USB sockets and so whizzy that Sooty would die of envy. Presentation suit at the swanky hotel - connector lead to the fixed ceiling mounted projector VGA !!!!
The females get a special offer :-)
I deal with VM both as a business and a residential customer and the difference is chalk and cheese. On the business side any issues are normally dealt with as I am talking to them and if they say they will ring back they do. Well worth switching to the businesses package if you require a reliable service.
I refused to buy the next model up car wise as the only major feature was the built in Sat Nav and the cost difference was almost £2,000.00 wtf no way!
Think they need to ask for their money back...oh dear, it was excellent value and they got what they paid for, nothing :-(
I think the mice actually wrote the article. This is bad :-(
Still on Windows 7, didn't take the poisoned chalice.
This entire article needs flagging as NSFW. Enough to get grown men groaning. I do hope that no one of a delicate nature reads this. <Shakes head...>
@ Dan Wilkie - Our only tea making facilities in the office are Klix machines :(
Doesn't that amount to constructive dismissal? Does Jeremy Corbyn know about this callus attack on the working man/woman, almost enough to make me vote Labour.
Normally if someone wants me to buy something they make an effort to sell it to me. You know "it's better than X because it's more whizzy or get this and your PC will run more applications better" Nothing from Microsoft other than "Get this it's free now!". Could it be that Windows 10 is not better than the previous incarnations therefore Microsoft would fall foul of the various consumer laws and their only option was to upgrade by stealth. Mind you their version of stealth is somewhat different to the dictionary definition!
So it's illegal for a black BMW to have a hand gun. Who would have known!
@DougS - Probably impresses them more than writer for The Register/IT hack.
Rectal Teaching Assistant ... if there is an assistant there must be a fully fledged arsehole.
It also begs the question of career prospects, if you are stating at the bottom the only way must be up. Think I need to rephrase that last line. :-)
It also helps if the string is wet, given the current weather should not be an issue :-)
There is a check list for when we go looking for another planet to inhabit/wreck, wow!
I read this and failed to understand 99% of it.... It's not April 1st is it?
We'd just like to check what currency you'd like your cheque in?... And which bank you have now transferred to as apparently NatWest is pants?
I have 2 watches, neither of which ever need winding or charging. Why should I or anyone take a considerable number of backward steps?
Read it that is... You don't expect a minister to read everything that get sent to his department. Some minion did that and penned (pun intended) a reply for the minister to approve. Said minion had to go into do-dah extraction mode rapidly hence the more considered reply :-)
Why do we need AI? There are far too many of the real things infecting the planet and we are trying to create artificial ones.... The point is?
I thought he was nuked on that asteroid? You mean he might have escaped via a hidden tunnel! Wow you couldn't make it up!
I ain't Spartacus > Your title is Coxchopper or the less drastic Coxstabber.
That might be because 8 out of 9 car owners are not complete morons?
But every driver knows that every other driver, apart from them, is a complete moron. So that makes 99.9999% of drivers to be morons.
The cycle is broken, we don't need to update the hardware to run the next generation of software.
Don't worry Mr Bond, "James Bond" will soon catNip that in the bud.
That explains two things: 1) why I needed Quick Time and 2) why I am having trouble getting out of this wooden box.
Some people are making assumptions that Governments (and Departments) are intelligent.... I give you Hanlon's Razor: "never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity".
Far too many in the civil service playing the game of musical chairs without the music. 1) Get moved to the latest high profile scheme. 2) Produce lots of mindless bullshit. 3) Get budget increase. 4) Grow department. 5) Spend like mad. 6) Get moved to next high flying scheme just before the audit. 7) Repeat....
Or to be more correct Mammary Gland Mouse.
Wonder if Penistone passes water?
A government IT project that works and works well and is now being changed, this bodes well! Where do I book for tickets to be a fly on the wall at the various crisis meetings in 5 years time? :-)
Have a look at some videos :-)
The icon seemed somehow appropriate :-)
A "puss paw" speed :-)
Running an Ad-blocker?
"I'm getting old and cynical" = I am older and even more cynical :-)
Bloody ***!! MacAfee hidden tick thing!!!
Why are you posting a sensible comment? This is The Register not BBC letters. Get a grip man, this is a test to prepare you for when BT takes over.
So, who do you recommend? AOL?
Keep the guy in the little computer repair shop in town in business. I think he is looking to retire as he has started to sell Linux Mint pre-installed.
Why not buy a camera?
As data is refreshed, copied etc. does the metadata/exif data get lost?
Print using high quality inks on archival quality paper. Store in archival boxes in a fireproof facility. The only way to ensure readability by your children's children in X+ years time.
Shush, don't feed the troll.
They even managed to get Schroedinger's cat to play a bit part in the Elvis scene :-)
It's cheap crap - why would anyone expect it to be secure? It's only redeeming point is that being so crap it won't last that long so will end up as landfill long before anyone gets chance to do anything meaningful with it.
It can't be just me but I take one look at these toys and equate them to naff over priced tat and run a mile.
Tell that to the inventor of the TV remote :-)
Why are there handles on doors that need to be pushed?
