Re: That's OK, we have all been there
We used to chat up the girls at the stores when EPOS systems went down, got invited to many parties and such. Used to drive the supervisor mad though, especially as we were actually rebuilding the servers while gassing so they couldn't say we were slacking as such.
Re: We only found out about the problems in the last board meeting
It's high time some of these major companies simply fired these clowns, declined to pay out their severance, and let them sue if they wish
I always find it weird that when you get past a certain level, things on your CV that would righlty not get me even an interview are seen as a good thing.
"Oh you fucked a companies share price up, closed half of it down and sacked a lot of the staff! That makes you highly employable at board level"

"And if we're talking about software, Nexuses are pure Google, so as American as can be."
Y'see its fine it goes to the NSA instead.
Re: My 2 cents
I have to agree, the outlook app worked great, whats that saying about if it aint broke?

Dave's syndrome. :)
Re: when will this madness stop?
To be honest getting close enough to some wildlife is enough work, gaining their trust enough, wandering through crap conditions (35-40C 95% humidity and jungle to wander through is pretty knackering).. You never know how wild animals are going to react as well. I have seen a troop of crab eating macaques completely ignore me photographing them and sitting among them, and run straight past me to attack some other people who were watching them,monkey bites are not nice they have pretty decent incisors, they are also thieves who will grab anything that takes their fancy. I would have been pretty wary on first encounters with any monkeys.
RE: The table
I have talked to some designers and architects who think the design is more important than the practicality, which is slightly worrying when some of the architects said it was more important than building structural regs.
Re: Putting a target on your back
If you have nothing to hide,
they'll make a new fear up.
Re: As an ex-orange customer....
Orange sent a bailiff round (about 2 years after I left them) to collect on the phone number they had given with my account (while waiting for them to move my number across), seems they hadn't stopped it and had been charging me for several years worth of monthly fees on it. Knowing they are part of EE was enough to keep me away.
Re: Reg hack confused by science again
Hey even as someone who only did Mech Eng. I can understand data, maths and spot cherry picking by the author thanks. :)
I once walked barefoot
into a toilet and had a gient centipede walk right over my foot, almost didn't need the toilet after that. Peeing while holding a stick to defend yourself with is not funny.
I also have a picture of a bird eating spider that covers a large floor tile that used to live in the bathroom at another place it used to sit right above the cistern and it was a waist height cistern.
Hell follow the link and feel your whole body clench internally.
True, we have made keys using metal shims (admittedly with a lathe and files) for a yale lock, those would be no trouble.
Yep, been to enough places were you have to dump the rucksack on the back or top of some bus or somewhere you can't keep an eye on it, everything valuable goes into the daypack that stays with me. Those locks won't even stop a half determined thief.
Re: figure out Bing
Again it's a corporation holding a country to ransom, and pain though it is I think you would have to push back as a goverment to show you cannot be so blatantly manipulated. Plus would be interesting to see what happens to googles services in other countries & businesses when they see that this is how google wields its power over them overtly.
Re: good luck with that
I don't think people are that daft that they could not find an alternative, and anyway under that thinking a corporation can hold a Gov to ransom by threatening to withdraw its services, I hope we haven't reached that so fully yet.
I'll agree it stinks, the prevelance of skunk is the problem there, other weed or hash tends to be less offensive, unfortunately its harder to get as its easier to grow skunk than smuggle weed across borders.
I think maybe you could do with a smoke or a drink mate, you seem a little angry, are you OK?
I guess no youth has ever eaten cheese and gone on to murdering either.
Re: Why....just why?
IoT fridge, why? Eyeballs + post it note, I spend enough time staring into it randomly anyway while I am tryng to remember what I came in the kitchen for.
Re: How survivable is the F35?
Have a search for some picture of damaged A10s they have been built with one role, fly quite low around a battlefield and ruin the enemies day, they can survive a lot. That gun has to be a psychological weapon in its own right.
Re: JMcA obviously!
Just finished, Reamde and JMcA is the first guy who came to mind seeing this poll.
Let me guess
It will be sort of rectangle shape and have glass on the front?
Re: Glorifying killing
I don't think its amazing or great, in fact I would rather it was not needed at all, but when it is I rather see it more like putting down a rabid dog, not pleasant but neccssary.
@ Andy Non
To be fair the bible has a lot of that sort of bollocks as well.
Actually I have nothing against muslims, or christians or anything like that. Most muslims are pretty ok out of the ones I have met, in fact couple of years ago stayed on a predominately muslim island for about a month and everyone was lovely, I would recommend the place to anyone wanting to go there for a holiday.
However any lot who happily kill and maim for some cause like ISIS and who oppress people and will not compromise from their own twisted world view and who thinks you should die if you do not agree, well quite frankly fuck 'em.
No joining an army thats currently the enemy of some of the worlds most heavily armed millitaries is the death penalty bit.
Re: not so keen on your chapatis
Oh I so agree on Penang, what an amazing place for food, not only the Malaysian food, but the grub from China town and the Indian curry houses.
You might want to look up the full classification though. Water resistant rating usually go by pressure, so something rated at a certain depth may still leak if you swim or move it about to much.
It seems to be the current thing.
Re: Seems like a symbolic fine
Because as you get further and further into security clearance, they tend to go further back and dig deeper, send people round to question your old college friends stuff like that. At least in the UK as far as I am aware they do.
@ Dr Mouse
Actually if she got the perfume out and started spraying it around in a massive cloud I would have no problems with objecting.
Try looking up power vaping on youtube, it's a bit more antisocial than e-cig types.
Re: "Almost certainly"
All the pieces are opinion pieces, you did a thourough review and made sure? Must have taken a while to work your way through. Hows your opinion on vaccinations?
No oit can still be unpleasant seems to me there's to types a vapours present at work, those who have the normal vaper and those who are getting into the turbo charged custom versions, the normal ones are pretty inoffensive, the turbosized ones produce huge amounts of smoke that fills up the room we work in (literally hiding the prson vaping when they exhale). Its like being under assualt at a perfume counter during Christmas.
You know reading this thread.
The saying about glass houses really comes to mind.
Re: What is this HTTPS I keep reading about
Yes but be serious you would only really expect to see that sort of effort put in by a tech site, you know one that talks about security issues and stuff. You can't expect a site that doesn't understand and report on things like that to understand the needs for HTTPS.
Re: Whatever next?
Trout are very powerful and carry underwater weapons.
Re: There are other options
It's not always convenience trumps security its knowledge, on a tech website people understand your post, elsewhere people are going to go huh. The companies get away with tracking half the time because poeple don't really get it, or know what they could do about it.
Re: Earth to Microsoft
Starting to wonder about that, I never really bothered with Linux as it was to much arsing about setting it up, (yes I know its got easier, but I remember the pain of trying to get dual monitors on a radeon graphics card working), and for me the pc was just a tool to get stuff done.
But MS are now making any effort worth it, and its not like they managed to make win 8 a user friendly experience anyway, I can't help but wonder whether its going to cause people to suddenly work out the value of effort v privacy. I have non techy friends who having heard the comments about win 10 and want none of that shit, IOS or Linux could come good out of this.
Re: I'm sorry
I was thinking this, some poor lass down the road got bottled in the face a few weeks back by some drunk who actually did it through her car windscreen causing nerve damage to the face. The judge gave him a suspended sentence. Sort that shit out first.
Re: Time to end the 'war on drugs'
From personal experience as a student in Bolton, I can say the police showed quite a relaxed attitude in general to a bit of weed being smoked, sometimes we even had off duty ones at parties.
Funnily enough the only time we did get in trouble was when someone picked a daffodil from a council planted area, that apparently needed a black maria, a van full of cops, two dog teams and a squad car, with us all being slammed into the side of the van and verbally abused.
Re: Well who knows ? @ Cornz1
Stupider is described as an adjective of stupid in the Oxford dictionary
Re: "Just a thought"
For hell meetings, there was an AD agency in London a good few years back, that painted the meeting room some really hideous bright colours, purple and orange and had no seats or other comforts. The idea was that you only wanted to spend a brief time in it so meetings were quick and to the point.
Re: No keyboard present, press F1 to continue
If you think about it, it makes you provide the perfect fix.
Re: I would like to live in subsidised housing too.
My friend lived in Denmark for a while and they had some form of rent control in action, which meant the apartments where he lived there was a mix from high earning professionals all the way economically down to unemployed, he said it seemed to lead to less ghettoization.
25 million and a clear conscience seems like a win to me.
Seems a of a bit harsh judgement of Americans.
Re: Oh come on..
A server upgrade is a cost to a business when nothing seems to be wrong with the current one.
