Re: SLOUGH - if despond - easily the worst place in Buckinghamshire ... or anywhere?

Oh come on...

It's not as bad as Bracknell - just bigger.

Ahhh... CiX

I met a few g/fs and my ex either on cix, or at cix parties, and know of quite a few marriages of cixen (some of whom haven't split up).

Hopefully, with its new lease of life there'll be plenty more of that going on in the future...

You could at least....

You could at least have got his name right.

It's Doug Dennerline.

WHITE WHALE spent 4 years trying to tell us something, then stopped

Must be just me....

I saw the headline and thought I'd missed news of a long-running Ubuntu beta that had just been canned.

Oatmealer rubs Operation Bear Love cash in troll's face

Andy 68

That's what he said he was going to do *last week*...

Look at the first words on the article linked to "As promised, here's the photo of $211,223.04 ..."

The photos also have a small handful of coins - hard to make a round 20k with those

Menaced cartoonist raises $60,000 for copywrong

Andy 68
FAIL

You missed these bits

1) It's now at least $120k

2) The link to the site/page concerned must have been accidently deleted... these things happen. http://theoatmeal.com/blog/funnyjunk_letter

3) Whilst deriding him for a host of failings, you also said "sending out the takedowns becomes a full-time job." This is exactly why he has taken the path he has. Read the original.

Happy to help.

LinkedIn users buried in spam after database leak

Andy 68
Thumb Up

This is A Good Thing

at least for me.

LinkedIn was one of my 'standard low-security' passwords, it seems not to have been one of the leaked ones, but The Password Gorilla now protects all my work and home logins (across fedora and win7 - just need a gorilla client for small fondleslab now) and every single one is different.....

About bl**dy time I did it, too.... and hopefully it will encourage everyone else to do the same.

Pay Jobs due respect - by crushing the empire he created

Seriously..?? "Based on sales"???

Are you being deliberately obtuse? In two sentences you've managed to say exactly the opposite of what you're trying to say : that Linux is both more used and is significantly cheaper.

(and no, I haven't even looked at your 'evidence')

C'mon, really

It's not as though they can make Skype for Linux any *worse*, is it now?

what about....

what about pulling the sticker off and dropping tiny amounts of sunflower oil from a cocktail stick into the hole to free up the sticking drive just long enough for you to copy everything off?

Fedora 14: haven for Ubuntu's homeless GNOMEs

Andy 68
Pint

Thank you

Adam,

I'd just like to say that I love F13 and 12, and I'm looking forward to loving F14.

I haven't found a way that I can contribute back to it yet (apart from encouraging my favourite paid-for app to support it), but when I can be arsed, my work machine will be upgrading from 13 to 14.

Ubuntu to play music and vids at home (although even that's looking less appealing these days) and Fedora for my "I have to get shit done" laptop.

Cheers.

(this messgae brought to you by F14 Live)

Reverse engineer extracts Skype crypto secret recipe

Thumb Down

"a restriction Skype had plans to ease with the upcoming publication of an API."

Snort!

The API is a pile of horse-w*nk . They've been promising for years to update it. It sucks.
