Saga saga

Considering the almighty toys-out-of-pram slinging that King make about the word "Saga" (Things made simple for old people, fictional aspie-Scando detective), does *anybody* actually call this game anything other than just "Candy Crush".

Nobody calls it "Candy Crush Saga"

If you missed out on this most important of Internet sensations of 2014 so far, then you are not cool.

You will never be cool.

BT scratches its head over MYSTERY Home Hub disconnections

Mnot Paranoid

Re: Obvious problem, obvious solution

Although the last time I looked, AAISP were sending out the godawful TG-582N as their home router. Whilst they had nobly hacked the one sub-version of the firmware where the developers had forgotten to remove IPv6, getting it to remember a firewall rule appears to be a genuinely impossible task.

There are going to be some very sweet Steamboxes coming soon once the Tegra K1 goes into full production. Nvidia's Unreal 4 engine demo the other day was doing it for me.

I'd be happy with bluetooth printing in iOS7 and a games controller for the Apple TV (now with added App Store)

Re: Install...

You beat me to it. I was just thinking "this is mostly going to be about the Raspi isn't it?". Not that that would be a bad thing. I've been far too lazy to even boot mine up more than a couple of times.

Panasonic throws in towel on plasma tellies, preps for BILLION-dollar kick in pants

One day...

A TV manufacturer other than Panasonic might make a screen that isn't so reflective I can see myself gawping at it whilst I eat my dinner.

If I wanted a mirror, I'd buy one.

Until then...

Re: I wonder what the churn was on wholesale connections...

As far as I was concerned, there should be no effect on Be wholesale connections with AAISP. I've got dual-WAN bonding with them over Be connections. For the last month or so, I have had issues, where I had none before, so perhaps the wholesale service has degraded too. I had thought about migrating to the Talk Talk wholesale, but I'm moving house to another city next month, so I'll deal with it then.

I remember this exact connection.

I grew up in Beverley which came under Kingston Communications, the only telecoms company that was completely separate from the GPO.

What are quantum computers good for?

Mnot Paranoid

Perhaps, and this is off the top of my head, we could use these for some seriously effective noise reduction processing.

We could clean up the first audio and video recordings of humanity to an almost absolute state of clarity. "What's the probability of the audio sample at this point in time if noise had not occurred?"

This goes way beyond mere 'sample smoothing'.

Everything Everywhere swept away by its own 4G hype tsunami

Every cloud...

Hopefully all the current hardcore mobile data rapists will migrate and get locked into a nice "Early adopter (mug)" two year contract with EE.

Should give a bit of space to those of us who are happy to stay on 3G until an operator with a clue gets into the LTE / 4G market.

Anonymous takes down UK government websites in Assange attack

Mnot Paranoid
Pint

Here's a thought...

We should just let Assange piss off to Ecuador with impunity so he can go and fiddle with his little Wiki and listen to pan-pipe moods.

Sure, it might create a little diplomatic spat with Sweden, but what are they going to do? Close down all the IKEAs in protest. I can't imagine why any right-thinking person in this country wouldn't breathe a huge sigh of relief at seeing the back of those divorce-enablers.

All those police in Knightsbridge and go back to more important work too.

It's a Win-Win-Win.

There's nothing to see here

It's being implemented by Orange, so that won't work then.

I can happily pass on "GPRS speeds on 4G" until an operator with a clue can launch a service.

London cops order Julian Assange to turn himself in

Mnot Paranoid
Mushroom

Re: the alleged rape victims?

Which is very interesting to someone who watched the film 'Zeitgeist' a couple of days ago.

Far from being an antihero, Assange is actually a device of the US Government's paymasters to fuel instability in the Middle East, thus perpetuating their agenda of money making.

The uber-rich can only make money by lending it to governments to fight wars, usually on both sides.

There is almost certainly a level of CIA involvement, for whatever reason ^^^

Orange blames switch for data problems

Mnot Paranoid
FAIL

You can't have your money back

Because according to Orange, 3G is a 'bonus' service. You only pay for 2G. Their words.

Personally, I've just given them nearly £400 to get out of a mobile broadband and iPhone contract. It took at least 7 attempts just to get them to unlock my iPhone. The only thing that Orange are good at is utter incompetence.

I see the £400 as a personal fine for my stupidity for ever signing up to this appalling company.
