I'm having trouble visualising the scale of this thing

It's not a sexual euphemism, but I always equate "deploying a build" to "having a poo"
He's got a bloody iPad. :(
Do any of these do content filtering or otherwise have strong parental controls? I'm looking for a way to protect young-un's delicate sensibilities. Do I need OpenWRT?
And simply ignore all the suggestions from my bank that I install their "easy to use" app.
Slightly more peace of mind that way.
Thank you! I completely forgot I'd done that. Rule removed :)
The admin interface runs on port 5000/5001, so if I edit the firewall rules to remove access the software warns me that doing so would block my own access and reverts the settings. How do I go about blocking external access while maintaining access via LAN?
Santander offer text and/or email alerts for transactions that meet whatever criteria you specify. I get alerted while I'm still standing at the cashpoint but sometimes it takes a few minutes for the message to come through.
This hack involved nothing even remotely related to Microsoft.

-10 internet points for you, must try harder.
GiffGaff DO allow tethering, but only on their limited data packages. So £10 a month with 1GB data, tethering is permitted. £12 a month with unlimited data, tethering is not permitted.

Are you thinking of Breaking Bad? Jessie had a Roomba which "appeared to have" swept up the cigarette containing ricin.

At least you'll have a photographic record of what you purchased
Hehe, true, true. We've all got a "my removable storage was smaller than yours" anecdote!
-10 geek points for you then! I used to buy PC magazines just to lust after different models of PC with the latest x86 processor or mind bogglingly capacious (120MB) hard disk drives.
I'm feeling like maybe I've said too much.
Oh. I once asked for -- and received -- DR DOS from my parents for either Christmas or a birthday, I forget which.
I was dead chuffed with my new-found levels of conventional memory.
"Significant Solar Event", eg. Summer
How is it giving sport back to the fans when they're taking it off free to air channels and putting it on subscription?
That was going to be the case no matter who consumed the output of the wind farm.
It is technically very impressive.
Al, to recreate, install YAMTT from from the Play Store and drag two fingertips around the screen. It will only trace their path sporadically, false touches will appear elsewhere on screen. Touch the screen with three fingers and it goes completely haywire.
Note, this was only a problem on my first device (which also updated to the same software version as yours). I took it back to the shop and got a replacement which passed the above test with flying colours and has no problems at all. Thus I feel I can safely say it was a hardware fault.
I can attest that the software update JSS15Q does NOT fix all of the multi-touch problems for everybody.
I unpacked mine and immediately found it to be deeply unsatisfying to use. The touch interface was horrendous, mysteriously detecting touches where there were none made typing and scrolling a very hit and miss (mostly miss) affair. A quick search online revealed that I was not alone with these problems and that a software update was meant to have fixed them. My tablet did have the update already so I took it back to John Lewis for a replacement which they gave me with no argument.
Very glad I didn't buy online this time! My replacement is behaving perfectly and I'm very happy with it.
I bought the Dell XPS One 27 Touch at launch and having used it as a living room family PC for more than six months I can say that it's a quality bit of kit and goes like stink. The resolution and screen size makes it a joy to use Windows programs in windows - the first time I've even not had a compulsion to maximise my window all the time (let's not talk about TIFKAM apps on a 27" screen though - I never use them)
The touch is handy for stabbing at the screen when someone else is holding the mouse but otherwise I don't use it much, I'm a traditional keyboard and mouse type of chap. It's probably not as beautiful as an Apple but it always gets admiring comments when people visit.
I had a no-show for an appointment to install my BT Infinity in January this year. When I phoned to complain I was told that it was "a problem in their workflow system" which meant that although my appointment showed on BT systems and I'd received regular emails and texts counting down the days until my installation and urging me to make sure I was at home and ready for it, no appointment had been booked on the OpenReach system. So I then had to wait another 15 days for a new appointment.
Not off to a good start. Managed to get a measly £10 compensation for my wasted day, and had to fight hard for that.
If you don't like it, don't read it.
Can Don have his hat back now please?
"Always keep your gun pointed in a safe direction" isn't all that clear a message as safety tips go.
As long as it's pointing away from ME, that's OK, right?
I'm having trouble getting my head round the numbers though. How many olympic sized swimming pools worth of matter is 740 suns?
Alan Partridge voice: "Can you make porn come on my mobile?"
Not a hope. I'm no fan of Apple, but this thing looks like a Tonka toy in comparison to an Air.
For some reason, the name "486DX" still makes my pulse quicken. :-\
Both my hands are currently occupied, but yes.
Really? ... REALLY? Come on Stephen, do the sums and think about how utterly implausible that is. The globe would be overrun by power stations and hard disk drives by the end of the first day of that.
Some interesting views on what can go wrong here: http://itshambles.wordpress.com/2011/10/27/some-history-half-a-century-of-failure/ - admittedly related to software projects but still relevant.
A very funny blog (not my own), check it out.
I'm thinking a sort of riches to riches rom-com biopic detailing the trials of a young Boris at Eton and his rise to power
What the hell differentiates an analyst from a bloke down the pub talking to his mates on the same subject? Serious question! Do people get paid for their "analysis"? By whom?
^ This! Not once have I played on my Xbox and thought "I wish the graphics could be higher res/faster/whatever". On a 50" plasma at sofa distance, it's all fine.
I'm happy for my investment to run for another year or two. The only thing I don't like currently is the abominable Metro UI that they foisted onto us recently but I got 4OD as compensation so I'll live.
...given the economic climate and the fact the demand to replace bulky CRT sets and those without digital tuners has tailed off. Now I've got my 50" plasma I don't intend to replace it until it breaks and I'm sure I'm not alone.
The manufacturers have been kidding themselves that 3D is the magic bullet to keep sales going but I'm sorry, it's just not for me!
I'd watch this version!
And how is it cured?
Anybody else have the old Jim'll Fix It footage of the boy scouts on the rollercoaster brought to mind?
Against all these companies for being such arses with their bloody patents.
Who's with me?
Tandy called, they want their "clock radio of the future" designs back.
The earth isn't a perfect sphere. It bulges around the equator.
Stand well back.
I read jabuzz's comment in a nasal tone of voice, it sounded excellent.
