Cry, fanboi, cry
Your tears, while not delicious, are amusing.
Soooooo . . .
. . . you sound both pompous and tedious, yet you imply that people on Facebook are dorks. Which RFC explains *that*?
For FOTW, that is. Some misspellings thrown in for good measure might have helped, but overall you've got the style *down*.
"I don't even use . . ."
In keeping with the traditions of The Reg Luddite Brigade(TM), I don't even use Wi-Fi (presumably some sort of modern iteration of a sound system) or even Ethernet, as that is a far more modern and therefore inferior technology than what I'm used to. Rather, I prefer the "pigeon and a piece of string" network, wherein my pigeon receives a tiny electric shock when I press a key, causing it to tug a piece of string, which then pulls a wire on the far end of the house, closing a contact and illuminating a light, thus alerting my batsman that I would like him to perform a task such as write a letter or smoke me a kipper. There is clearly something wrong with anyone who would bother with a more modern, or indeed different, approach (see also: Facebook, smartphones, versions of Windows later than 2000). I'll stick with my "ancient" technology, thank you very much!
Whereas . . .
. . .you are clearly from the land of NeedlessPedantryLandia. Many people refer to the USA as "America" and to its residents as (wait for it) "Americans." Thank you for playing, now back to your cave.
You mean the ongoing undercover documentary.
There's no need to Godwin the comments this early.
Speaking of rednecks . . .
Lighten up, Francis.
Once more, for the record ...
If this comment is the present of commentardism (yes, it's a real word--due to a series of ubiquitous misprints, you can find it in the dictionary right after "gullible"), then *I* feel very sad.
Allow me to mock you roundly
That's it, really.
I was going to do a comparison of such relevant search terms as "shitmantec," "lotus notes sucks," and "opera fanboy scat porn," but it turns out that Bing is not currently returning search results at all.
Sounds like they got . . .
. . . way more than his Lucky Charms.
Give in to the hate, embrace the Dark Side
"[I]ts market share is in decline thanks to strong competition from Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and others."
Wow, relegating Opera to the "and others" category should earn you some blazing hatred. Hope you're wearing your asbestos underwear!
At a guess...
VMware probably doesn't want to cannibalize their ESX/vCenter sales by making Workstation so powerful that customers no longer need the datacenter-scale hypervisors.
Trust Notes to try to make a software bug a security "feature."
What are you even talking about?
It wasn't Microsoft who put on the "funeral," but an independent party. Try RTFA next time, you cretinous, drooling nincompoop.
As usual, the Opera users have no idea what AdBlock and NoScript actually *do*. They're not built in.
I believe the fail is yours . . .
. . . David Halko.
Christ, not this shit again
As has been pointed out repeatedly here and elsewhere, Vista and 7 do not use IE to perform updates. Moran.
Except . . .
. . . without AdBlock and NoScript, its usefulness ranges somewhere between a bag of nothing and a glass hammer.
Caveats notwithstanding . . .
. . . I await the stampede of froth-mouthed penguinistas stumbling over one another to deride Microsoft and Windows.
Ban Brits, too . . .
. . . and reduce the number of smug, self-important twats by 90%.
Stop using it, then.
If it weren't for the inverse-square law, you'd have some kind of valid point.
Darn those technical terms
Perhaps you should check the dictionary before commenting. No, no, I'll do it. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fuze
Actually . . .
Given Opera's ~1% desktop market share, I'd say Microsoft's decision to develop IE 7 and 8 can be squarely attributed to the success of Firefox, with Chrome adding some Johnny-come-lately pressure these days.
Give it a rest
No one cares. Posting this from Opera and trying to squeeze out the same functionality I get from Firefox. Seriously, I don't know how you guys live with this POS.
The difference . . .
. . . is that the staff of El Reg have a sense of humor.
Whoa . . .
Pardon me while I back away slowly.
Hey, I've seen this wall of text elsewhere! Tear down the wall!
Would have rated it higher but it needs more misspellings and ALL CAPS ranting.
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!
So what you're saying . . .
. . . is that the lead scientist is from the only European nation renowned for being even more uptight and stodgy than England?
Good luck with that
How often do binary answers work in psychology or indeed physiology?
The analysis is wrong how?
Not sure if serious.
Yes, you are.
So it's really just a repacked (insert your least favorite Unix flavor), then?
At 9.7 inches . . .
. . . the iPad is good for those heavy flow days! Mine's the one with the string attached (yes, strings are on tampons, I know).
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.
Football, non-violent? In EUROPE?! The players, sure, but what about the fans?
In any case, nothing will stop a true commentard from spewing ignorant bile into the Intertubes. Nothing.
I'll just lurk around in anticipation of the spew of bilious hatred from the Opera user community.
