I know this
My Fiancée's desktop PC has it. There's tons of crud on it and I'm not sure what is what because it's all in Chinese.
Until now it thought this was a re-skinned version IE.
"Sharepoint is SVN/GIT for management"
Thank you, that cheered up my afternoon.
I hadn't noticed the width of cattle class seats (trains or planes) getting wider. My netbook fitted nicely on the tray tables found in cattle class. My old school 15 inch laptop was a total failure for that. I shall mourn the passing of these little wonders.
Let's hop someone takes a leaf out of the Raspberry Pi (and similar), ups the RAM, adds a screen and keyboard. I'll happily run Linux on ARM.
In a few short years
The EU will investigate an impose tariff limits.
Re: So long and thanks for all the phish.
In a similar manner I have chosen not buy any more Sony hardware. They decided what I could use my hardware for, after the fact I had purchased it. These decisions have implications. Sony are no longer trusted enough to provide hardware and services. Generally speaking, if I can avoid Sony, I will.
Apple, buy it more than once
That's so you buy another device, iPhone that has the GPS, but a rubbish maps app. Are the maps the same in the mini iPad?
Because someone will pay money for it and you can take a cut.
Re: Does Google not know why people want local storage?
I've flown a good few miles in the last year or so. Radio transmitter must be switched off. Specifically mentioned are devices using WIFI and cellular phones.
Is it possible to store 13 hours (LHR to HKG) of video in 8 GB?
Back in the real world, local storage is much more important than Google give credit. Local sorage allows you to do stuf away from the internet. Chromebooks are simularly limited.
Not just Windows
I once had an update for Linux Mint that removed the nVidia drivers for my desktop (double headed) PC. After a fresh install Mint repeated the update with the same effect. Sometimes being a ludite is the best option. After that debarcle, I switched to Debian Squeeze (Stable)
Re: Ha, that's arssing ironic
All of my calls to my Fianceé are important and all of them are conducted over Skype. I live in the UK and she lives in Hong Kong. Other family members are also geographically distributed, my Sister lives in New Zealand and my parents in South Wales and using Skype as become as important as the regular telephone or snail mail.
If for some reason Skype doesn't work; I use Linux, my Fianceé uses iOS then we resort to alternative options.
I don't describe DSL as mission critical, I describe it as the cheapest available option, but it is not the only option. I seem to manage quite well with Lebara Sim card for DR/BCP.
Re: Computer misuse
Computer Misuse Act, 1990. Section 1
Unauthorised access to computer material.
(1)A person is guilty of an offence if—
(a)he causes a computer to perform any function with intent to secure access to any program or data held in any computer [F1, or to enable any such access to be secured] ;
(b)the access he intends to secure [F2, or to enable to be secured,] is unauthorised; and
(c)he knows at the time when he causes the computer to perform the function that that is the case.
(2)The intent a person has to have to commit an offence under this section need not be directed at—
(a)any particular program or data;
(b)a program or data of any particular kind; or
(c)a program or data held in any particular computer.
Possibly section 3 as well, but that may depend on the EULA
I must admit, I deleted the Facebook App sometime ago and despite their nagging website I refuse to install it.
IANAL - I wish I was though!
Re: Action against GeoIP
Yes if they stump up the Tele Tax.
Shorter refresh cycle
Having a shorter refresh cycle increases Intel's revenue, but only because it hurts mine.
My 2004 era laptop is working fine and has 1040 vertical pixels.
Re: Re: I read that as.
It means "We're going to look at what people are discussing between themselves and publish that as if it were news."
It sounds so less fun and hip when the Mediaspeak is removed.
They cost a bit, but their technical staff are pretty good. They don't do unbundled.
I would still be using them if BT could have fixed their infrastructure. My line = 1500 Mbs, next door = 4500 Mbs
I deliver more
with a greater degree of success using far fewer resources.
We send Chris Hune and is clunkiest around the world at great expense, to agree nothing except to have another meeting. If that had been me, I would make them pay their expenses and the fire them.
EU doctors say...
...drinking water doesn't reduce dehydration, or some such...
Maybe if I stick the 95% pure stuff my thirst will be quenched.
My oldest CD still plays perfectly...
and I'm listening to it right now.
Purchased in 1987 it has travelled with me to University, overseas and has moved house countless times. It's still in it's original jewel case with sleeve notes and lyrics.
Actually I can't think of any purchased music CDs that have become unusable.
As for downloads, I have never purchased any music that way, preferring CDs. One CDs may no longer be produced, but I doubt it will be in 2012.
...that caused a stink!
IT = Excel + Word
You chose to live there....
...you could always move to an area with decent connectivity, I did!
Is see this...
"Surely they would have done so by now if it wasn't in their interests ?"
Mono is probably still small enough to be an itch that isn't worth scratching. If someone produces a competing killer application that starts to take business from MS, I'm sure they will pursue.
Remember the mantra; Embrace, Extend, Exterminate.
Re: By the way what happens to your data once you do become an adult?
Your data will be migrated to the ID cards database as you turn 18.
Why can they do that?
Why can US parties purge the voters from the electoral register (or whatever it's called Stateside). Shouldn't that be handled by the local authorities?
In the UK you have to complete a voter registration form every year. Updates can be made to it and provided you're registered by a certain date you can vote. The parties can't say, "We don't like this person because they might vote against us." and remove them from the register.
Well done for rescuing the voting rights of so many.
Just how many radios do you have?
If the digital switch for radio is handled as badly as the digital switch for TV, we'll all have to buy new radios.
Without including those provided by Sky or Freeview I have 5,
I'm sure some people have many more, for example MP3 players, mobile phones etc. No doubt the Government would like us all to replace our fully functional analogue radios with digital ones. Allowing us to give the Government another wedge of VAT.
Can we have a picture of Parliament in flames?
