I'm sure you have one, but I'm just not grasping it.
"[T]he Chief of the Defence Staff - Air Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup" -- I think I see part of your problem. There's no way this person can be real, therefore it's clear that the British High Command has been infiltrated by Anonymous or some other group of pranksters determined to throw the military into disarray. Sounds like it's working, too!
Let me be the first . . .
. . . in the inevitable flood of comments which say, "Who even cares? I don't use MyFaceTwitJournal because of a) privacy b) being far too cool c) my massive, engorged, throbbing penis. Ladies, I'm talking to *you*!"
I know, right?
Goddamn critics with their "standards" of "quality." They should be content to sit back with a six-pack of good old American lager and take a break from ESPN with a good old American explosion-fest. Plot? Story? Dialogue? These are for effete, cheese-eating (with the exception of good old American Kraft singles), wine-drinking, arugula-buying, socialistic, probable-homosexual, Obama-electing, limp-wristed, namby-pamby intellectuals. The day will come when we vote from the rooftops, and the movie critics will be the first against the wall!
Some of us who work in the real world have to do things like send backup data offsite (it's a good idea even if it's not a requirement, but I guess you wouldn't know that). Tape is actually quite fast for backup (less so for recovery), especially with compression, and it retains the data for longer than an unpowered hard drive.
Other than those objections, your point is valid.
In any case, nothing will stop a true commentard from spewing ignorant bile into the Intertubes. Nothing.
Hardly a surprising opinion . . .
. . . coming from someone who can't be bothered to use capitalization, punctuation, spelling, or grammar.
Not that I agree with the AC, mind you, I just think your opinion is a bit rich coming from, you know, *you*.
I await the many comments blaming "Micro$oft" for this shocking revelation.
The local subway system is plastered with Flip ads which give the impression that the Flip is targeted at the young, vain, and stupid. So, um, I can only guess that it will be massively successful. If only Cisco had colored it white and called it the iFlip, they would have had an absolute slam dunk.
Close, but . . . no, not even close
With the right approach, DR is much simpler with a VM than with a physical machine. As long as you have an appropriate host (ESX or whatever) available, you recover the VM image and go, rather than having to work with some vendor's notion of "bare-metal recovery" (possibly onto incompatible hardware) or having to reinstall the OS and then run the recovery and hope that it works. Furthermore, products like VMware's Site Recovery Manager and Platespin Protect facilitate automating the backup/recovery process, allowing a push-button recovery of your whole environment.
Other than that, you're spot on.
By which I mean it's shocking, just shocking, that an old codger finds the youth of today to be vastly inferior to the youth of, er, yesterday. Enjoy your memories of your two-way hike uphill in the snow.
These delays are most likely due to i/o latency, specifically network or hard disk, so throwing more CPU at the problem will not help. Windows having a more streamlined (or multi-threaded) i/o model would help. Or you could just run SSDs.
Perhaps you've seen his screeds on the Type 45 destroyers or the useless carriers procured by the navy? Oh, sorry, your RAF bias blinds you to anything you don't want to see.
Not that big
170 ions is not terribly big, even for atoms high on the atomic scale.
Didn't have that problem . . .
I just performed two Windows 7 installations, and both instances warned me about lack of firewall, antivirus, and having Windows Updates turned off until I either rectified the issue or explicitly disabled the warning.
That's that, then
An anonymous poster (and a furry-toothed Linux geek, at that) on a tech comment board has expressed his disinterest in a product. Time for Apple to shut down production!
Where's the camera?
Clearly, these "boffins" have been spying on my family Christmas! Well, I've got them beat this year--I'm staying home with a carton of egg nog and a bottle of whiskey, and I'm not leaving.
In short, it is just like Windows, since the reason for Windows needing to reboot is because software updates (wait for it) binary modules which are part of the OS! Windows needs to reboot much less than it once did, while Mac OS needs to reboot more (apparently).
I'm guessing that Dell's qualifications come from being burned by consumers buying Linux PCs and then freaking out because they aren't running Windows.
@Lord Elpuss, Open Office is not MS Office, and the UI and functionality are sufficiently different to make the disclaimer worthwhile. You can do the "same job," but you can't run the *same software* which is a non-trivial distinction. I just love how the Linux crowd cry "FUD" as a knee-jerk reaction to anyone who doesn't have their lips firmly wrapped around Linus' pole. Don't forget to cup the balls, guys.
So, let's recap the fanboi comments
If you reported problems with the upgrade:
1) You're lying.
2) You're spreading FUD.
3) It's your fault.
4) You should have done a scratch install instead of an upgrade.
5) You're obviously too clueless and incompetent to use a computer, much less run Linux.
Glad to see that, whatever changes Linux itself has undergone in the past few years, the community remains just the same.
I think the Pope should hand out free condoms, but that's not likely to happen either.
Came for the frothing fanboi hate . . .
. . . leaving satisfied.
"As far north as the Mason-Dixon line"
So, nowhere important is at risk, then.
1) Once someone has already caused an accident, chances are good that someone else is dead or injured, so penalizing someone after the fact is of no use to the injured party.
2) No one thinks that he/she is the problem, so removing the penalties for dangerous behavior will, in theory, cause an upswing in the behavior, resulting in additional accidents.
Operating a multi-ton vehicle is a privilege, not a right, and dictating safe behavior when doing so actually seems to me like a reasonable use of government power.
Proof that the Internet makes you stupid
Dear Flickrers, Flickr was created to *make a profit,* you fucking ignoramus dingleberries. The founders have succeeded in this goal by selling the company off to Yahoo!, pocketing (sorry, trousering, forgot what site I was on) shedloads of cash and leaving you sorry bastards to whine impotently on the forums. You now have two choices:
1) Suck it up
2) Start your own Web site
You can forestall #1 with continued whining, but we know that you're all too bloody useless to do #2 (except for poo-flinging purposes, of course).
One: In before the complaintards bitching about the use of Fahrenheit in the temperature.
Two: On a more serious note, pity the poor engineer who has to work on hardware in that environment! 90 degrees? Oh, hell no. The pathetic meatbags are going to be the ones who need coolers, never mind the hardware.
At the moment, no comments have been posted, so let me see if I can summarize the salient points of this thread before any show up:
1) Firefox has become bloated and inefficient, and the developers should go back to the 2.x/1.x/0.x code base.
2) Opera did it first, back in 1975.
3) "Windows sucks anyway so this is just one more reason to use FreeBSD Linux."
4) Generalized Ribbon interface hatred followed by repeated posts pointing out the obvious fact that changing back to the menu-driven interface will be simply accomplished by switching the theme.
I'll check back later to see if I missed anything.
