Re: Linux support for in place updates
Linux distros have supported "in place major updates" for many years. Please check facts before posting.
Re: But with the advent of touch ... we will see a rebound in traditional notebooks
not while they push out notebooks with sh*t resolution, glossy screens etc
Re: Obama is dumb
They endangered themselves by arranging military coups in Iran, Chile, etc, resulting in the deaths of thousands, providing plenty of propaganda.
Re: Doesn't Matter
... unlikely if that server housed in a foreign location is property of a foreign subsid
Works if using original Google Maps (you have to switch back "permanently" to old Google Maps if using new version) to see it
Re: So I can pay by paypal
... top it up with credit/debit card AND pay them a percentage. Sounds like a minority interest sport
Re: One thought...
indeed. flawed "research" from a so-called expert. The percentage of "country folk" having crashes is nothing like that quoted.
Re: That's the key question here
Well no it isn't. How many times has he been very polite (which obviously El Reg won't publish), or simply accepted patches, or taken patches and fixed them himself in his time ? There are many questions
They're gonna enjoy looking through my emails
since its used as a throwaway registration email repository. Nothing but PPI, viagra, solar panel sales, and other such distasteful stuff. Keep em busy for a while.
safe for whom? Anyone involved in illegal activities?
Mr Clapper, is that you?
and of course XtraDB is also provided in MariaDB as a fork of InnoDB
InnoDB has been GPL for some time as well as the default storage engine for some time, and MariaDB has already replaced MySQL on many other (uptodate) Linux distros
Re: Big deal...
who cares ? the child of that parent who called their offspring "hashtag". He cares!
just went to www.waze.com/livemap and got "The Waze Server has returned an error for this operation". Expensive error message generator
you're so ugly you have to wear a mask ;-)
Re: If Google loose patience with hardware manufacturers again
> Tom got it right.
"Google loose patience" ? wtf. Which is after all what I was referring to
Re: If Google loose patience with hardware manufacturers again
The word is "lose". T'other one means summit els, reach fet dicshunry mi lad
our daily lives
enough of the "our" sir.
Re: Why would a sane person buy one?
... bit like a full frontal lobotomy ...
missed off Rolls-Royce (aerospace)
You were asked for alternatives and gave none. Maybe you know of some that others don't ? If you put some down here then, if they really are better, then that would lead to some people on here leaving Skype ... which is what you apparently want. I, for one, would be interested in alternatives, on Linux, and on hearing of others experiences with them. Tried Ekigaphone ages ago and wasn't impressed at all.
Of course if you just don't give any, then you're a troll.
Re: Forcing people to suffer
If someone comes out with something lacking any merit at all on a public forum/mailingList then they are accepting that their ideas may be assessed and possibly ridiculed if meriting it. In the same way someone comes on some forum and doesn't leave their real name just hiding behind the AC nonsense. The ideas proposed by the RedHat employee lacked any merit at all (IMHO), and needed to be categorised as such. Linus did that, whilst suggesting that they could be kept in user space. Suggest you look up bullying in the dictionary before making such utterings
Re: $100k for a glass door?
it has rounded corners. Come on, that has to cost
People still ashamed to log in under a name?
Is that a person or a place? is it close to LaLa Land?
Re: That doesn't look too friendly.
If you actually read the comments of that link you would see that it is not something that would touch 99.9% of users, and to get affected by it you'd have to be incredibly stupid. Not on a par with the standard Windows vulns
Re: Toshiba z830
isn't that a 1366 x 768 screen ? (i.e substantially smaller than the res here)
and glossy too. ffs. Earth calling ultrabook manufacturers, anyone listening?
Re: Just another wannabe iPad rip-off
Just another Apple fanboi
"The first significant update to the license since the previous version"
Well the next update after the previous update always is the first significant update since the previous.
plan to "by"
ffs, nobody got a dictionary at El Reg?
Re: I want to know what's going on with them
From my usage as well all is perfectly fine. Must only be El Reg that has this "problem" ...
Re: Low res screen
exactly, and it's glossy too!! stopped reading at that ...
Re: Do we have any intelligent politicians?
... or go to Novatech (or similar) and get a PC with no O/S and pay £90 less for the privilege.
Re: But wait
He's not Loverock Davidson! He's Billy Fuckwit. The prize is mine
Re: 1366 x 768????
and glossy too. FFS
Re: No mention of Kubuntu?
Another vote in favour of Mageia (2). Stable for me since its release
Posting as an AC because you're ashamed of your statement. There are many many things on BitTorrent that are not "stolen". Back under your bridge troll
Re: Apple Schmapple
Just get a SANSA Clip (at a fraction of the price) and its as easy as drag+drop files. And then with the money you've saved you can go and buy something else worthwhile.
Re: Just because you disagree with the verdict, doesn't make the verdict wrong!
Is that why you're posting as AC? Don't want people to think/know you're a fanboi?
Re: at 13 you should you should be held responsible for your own actions...
Leave him alone, he's only 12
Too many tweets ...
... makes a twat, or so somebody said. Or maybe that should be "too many twitter followers makes a twat"
Re: Switching to Java 6 to Java 7 has nothing to do with language
Java7 introduces some changes in bytecode, and this can mean that things that functioned with JRE1.6 don't with 1.7. Obviously there is some argument you can pass to the JVM that means it treats the bytecode like in 1.6. But third party bytecode tools are still being updated to use this 1.7 bytecode, and it will take some time before all are upgraded.
Re: nothing is for free
Was BIGBOOBS patented, and that's what the protection money is about?
You would need your eyes testing ...
... if you go to McDonalds. How could you mistake it for somewhere where you can eat food?
Re: "Its a bug"
Errm, nobody "gave" permission to have their email addresses changed in the first place (on FaceFsck) and so by conclusion they didn't give permission to have those email addresses of contacts changed on some sync. But then you're obviously so embarrassed by your statement that you had to make it anonymous. Says it all.
Re: Anonymous posting
Is that why you posted this as AC ? Didn't want everyone to see what a stupid attitude you have?
What about the previous list(s)
... that have been slipping and slipping ? Willowcroft for example, originally planned for end Dec 2011, then slipped to start March 2012, then slipped to end March 2012, and today has slipped further to end June 2012. BT's "exchanges ready for 'infinity'" has had the exchange as "ready" since end of 2011, just that nobody can have it.
