well if you tell me your area, I could check... VM is still very good in TW postcode.. :)
which is more secure, a dodgy BETA, or a final product???
it wasnt the hair, but the skintight outfits on sexy bodies.... hur hur
EWWW.. only if you are into 'furries'...
I do think by 'dissimilar devices' he means Mobile / watch / kiosk etc...
The various types of PC (apple/ intel/ risc, etc ) are all *similar * devices...
Note also that Linux is usually JUST the Kernel, that has to be properly selected for the architecture and CPU... Only THEN is the rest (GUI, lots of other drivers ) added and call ubuntu, redhat etc.... :/
ACTUALLY... it is NOT Linux, but a variant of BSD/next,,,
tomayto tomarto... when is OS XI coming out????
yes, this the major problem with an otherwise great OS... android is getting the 'windows disease' in a bad way...
They foist an unwitting buyer with tons of upgrades, that the poor person has no idea about... most likely scaring them to apple!! :O :O
Then the app devs ALSO do the same thing, oblivious to the fact that they are for an OS that is 2 years older than the one on the phone!!!
I am still the owner of a Gs3, with ALL updates switched off...
dont you know google can translate it??? https://translate.google.com/#auto
or most *better* browsers already have that function, or can use an addon.. :)
earthfinalconflict is still a SCIFI series though...
hey be happy you GET TO EDIT!!!
yes, and how about changing the strange formatting to more like a webpage, with PROPER linking of photos/ videos..
some newspapers have been using a 'twitter embed' that many browsers cannot handle! (except for the idiots who let ALL the pownd crap in...
NVMe means Non Volatile Memory controller... so that mean your Ethernet becomes EVEN MORE crowded!!! so I don't think I'll go there, its bad enough, the web apps failing due to problems at one end or another!!!
I'm sure that is all still win 7 or server 2012 or newer (that has had metro for a long time...)
you dont need to 'install' GWX Control Panel - it is a standalone program, and can be started over the company network or usb directly..
'monitor mode' is the only thing that needs repeated access to the program, so neededing a copy on local drive... :)
and YOU are a fool for using MS crap... I have worked on PCs for 30 YEARS, and NEVER trusted 'sleep' - ONLY bought from good supplier like DELL, Tosh, etc...
you will have to explain.....
IF they had made the GUI like apple or android or ???
y'know small icons, with a pretty picture behind it, make a 'floating picture' one that can be re-sized, with the small icons round it????
then it would have 'taken off'....
"This is a Core i5 4200, 16Gb RAM, and SSD - by no means a powerhouse, but "should" allow me to do basic browsing FFS ... with Windows 10, that is not enough ... YMMV."
well I would ask what other programs are running in the background... use msconfig.exe to cut them down...
I hope you are not using the *Microsoft* browser... get something faster, 64bit version of chrome or palemoon...
and google chrome laptops are already 'replacing the PC'... even the latest android will have re sizable windows and different user accounts...
put this on an android!!! :)
chance of some good things happening, but is it too late????
yes, BUT what if websites NEED FLASH???? the BBC still needs it, but Apple must be paying them something so that it does not need flash??? YES, I once 'spoofed' Firefox the look like Ipad, and HTML5 worked!!! :) but then they changed it, does not work any more...
I have almost NEVER updated ANY copy of windows I have installed many times...
DO NOT USE IE or outlook!
Use win7 64bit ( you would be surprised how many old PCs can use it!! and there is NO way I know that can find out, except for installing win7 64 bit.... :p Yes, geeks, I know..... read my reasons...
Use either chrome 64bit or PaleMoon 64 bit (this is built on firefox V24, and made for people who just want the INTERNET, and do not want silly features that devs and geeks want!!!)
If all you want is to show of how fast , new, , and flashy it is, you know where to go... :) :)
the problem is the dumb Mule lovers... (hey, its a SIMILE, girls! look it up!!!!)
the devs say..
"NO! That is how I can afford my rent, the cheques from googladsservices... I dont CARE if the same one is used to stop ads on pron or malware!!!"
BUT the main problem is * the whole fffin world!* - If it was THAT easy, flash would be a bad memory...
sooooo many drone on, forgetting that it is MOSTLY googles fault for monetising it for lazy people!!!
they must be more observant in Portugal, where that film/programme ends, and goes to ads.. after the ads, the credits come up! :D
well, admen make lots of money from ads in newspapers, etc... EVEN the FREE ones! how does THAT work??
The admen have already made many enemies, how will they get people to *believe* they will NEVER go back to animated noisy ads???
The biggest problem is many use 'googleadservices' (yes, even theregister!!) to provide their ads - so you are stuck with one bad apple making the *whole* bunch bad... Its not 'theregister' that has done it, but 'dubious site' that got awful ads on its site...
LOLOL the dream of an ad man...
stop spending lots of cash on fancy actors and animation, do it straight, like virgin..
I've got 200 Mb/s.... get it now!!! :) they many have limited coverage, yes, but they DO NOT have BT's stupidity keeping them down!
there is always paranoia.... LOLOL
you forget there are legions of hackers out there, selling 'anti-ad' stuff, laughing at you....
Ha HA Ha... have you ever noticed a very good ad on tv, BUT cannot remember WHAT is was advertising????
what ever ads are for, how many actually USE them???
If companies pay for static ads, that is the only way they get used - the website can pay for its stuff, but it is up to the reader, whether he does ANYTHING...
On most 6 foot people, 120cm is above waist height!!
this article show its is more like 6 inches (around 12 CM )
and if you are spooked about seeing someone peeing, you have not seen a lot of urinals!! :O
The BIG problem is Classic Theme Restorer does NOT do it ALL... I have tried, with 4 or 5 EXTRA ADDONS to try to bring back the old look & feel...
go ahead compare it to FF V28.. Latest FF, Plus tons off addon bloat, etc, etc...
WHY leave V28??
"If it exists, someone's made a porn of it." - it is just not 'available'... :P
Simple. companies with LOTS of money and investments, *blindly* going with the 'industry standard' ..
(clueless MGR : "Its adobe, they are a big company working with MS for YEARS, why would I get *anything* that *MS* does not use????" "Linux??? WHY would I get that, ALL our budgets are spent on MS support!" )
webdevs have all their support, paid for by MGR, to do fancy looking pages with ADOBE..
Likewise clueless users... they can just about install windows, dont realise the default is 'administrator'...
Many dont know what things are , quite often it's NOT 'the blue thingy' due to it being modified by their ISP... :(
At least BBC is *starting* its HTML5 project..
TL DR.... I have heard that BBC has got a BETA HTML5 addon... so something is happening!!! :)
I dunno about XP, but.. Firefox on Win7 will easily do HTML5 in youtube - tho you may need an extension..
yes, pdf readers are available from OTHER people, just search.. :)
If you have apple, the HTML5 works on BBC... but NOT on PC!!! I wonder how much cash apple is paying them???
Ah, read about the beta... :) BBC!!! how about shouting about it a bit???
Amiga and Atari stopped about 20 years ago... and I dont see apple **computer** users complaining about upgrades... :P
It is NOT the 'upgrade' that is forced, but the download is done 'in secret', pretending to be 'an important windows update' that is accepted by most people for security reasons...
When this 'update' is around 4 GIGABYTE, it causes further complaints, due to their download limit being only 1 GIG!!
If MS had just advertised it to 'download for free', there would have not been much fuss..
trying to make the SAME OS run on BOTH a phone and a PC with a giant screen???
thoroughly stoopid idea...
and...Unix is NOT Linux???? :P
It HAS NOT worked, due to the shambolic way MS has handled it...
Shoving a half complete OS onto windows update, causing shocks and lost files, to say nothing about a 'simple windows update' taking hours to complete, it then does a restart, taking another hour, then says, resources incompatible' and proceeds to 'restore to last system' taking another few hours!
(Personally experienced, on an old laptop, that most 'low income' people use!!!)
And how about the poor guys, using a *limited download* dongle on their PC to save money due to low income??? - they are very hapy with the limit, they dont do that much internet...
- then windows starts doing 'update' of 2 or 3 GIG!!! (user thinks it is just update, not whole OS!!) -
- He gets back to PC, finding he has run out of downloads... >:(
IF MS had just released a Disc with it on, it may have been received better.... :/
If you want a good **powerful** desktop, DO NOT go thinkpad, lenovo, or ANY 'ready made' PC..... those are made to a price, NOT a spec..
It is VERY simple to 'make your own' PC.. some web companies will even build it FOR you, to parts you have selected from their website!!
overclockers.co.uk got me a 3Ghz I5 with all the extras for half the price of most shop bought ones!! :)
Its a common to have 'issues' with android gmaps... I use 'locus free' for general maps, but It seems google feeds its 'simpler' maps to other apps that need a map... just search 'GPS' on Gplay store.. :)
Also 'buschecker' and cell signal checkers - 'open signal' and 'network cell'
"Just stop your phone from trying to connect to any open wifi network"
DO tell us HOW... :)
No, you could say acting (mostly Shakespeare, of course!) is good training for young minds, it forces them to adapt to strange cultures, and odd ways of talking or speaking...
Just the way you adapt your English phraseology into programming phraseology... BUT Shakespeare is a lot more understandable and interesting! once you have mastered iambic pentameter, coding becomes a lot easier!!! :D
go on, google it.. :P :)
learning Shakespeare is just an example - I'll bet there are plenty of millionaires who got rich by writing plays, working in plays, and then went on to be famous actors... they just don't shout about it, and moan why others don't do it... :)
Adam sadler a millionare?? $300 mill..
BluRay Discs CAN be hacked(some much easier than DVDS!!) - But it is still about the only place you can get TRUE HD!! NO bandwidth limiting, NO ads, No problem for those rich enough to afford it...:/
Studios ALWAYS talk 'protection' even back when they thought 3D would be the future...
some exhibitor even GAVE a BluRay to a 'random person' (confident it could not be cracked) and 30 mins later they were given it back, WITH 2 copies.. LOLOLOL..
so it continues.. desperately selling the earth... must get more popcorn... :)
Huh, there is just TOO much pron, and no on to afford 'protecting' it...
