Re: Code does not rot
Booting to a log-in screen does not mean the operating system has loaded. On Win8, that happens for several minutes AFTER you log in. And there is not a whole lot you can do till it is loaded. More MS fakery.
Re: Strange goings on
Outlook was bad for that. We had to change the .zip to ,zi1 or whatever. Anything other than .zip. With instructions in the E-mail on what to change it back to. There were a few other extensions that were problems too, like .exe, that were gotten around the same way. What a joke.
Every other time.
The NSA was adding another Splitter room to Google.
Sorry about the down time.
Re: Of course, there is ONE solution...
And let the world know how spaghetti coded or otherwise how badly their old Flagship XP OS really are coded? Someone would go through it and come up with a version of open source XP, half the size, twice as fast, with much better security, all within a few months. That would never do.
Re: We are all saved!!
Off peak energy for solar power definition: When the sun don't shine.
For the wind not blowing, it is in the evening when people get home and turn on the A/C and electric cook stove, usually about the time of the setting sun. Also in the early morning, when people are getting up and getting ready for work. The sun low on the horizon on both occasions. neither are really available, when you need them the most.
Hydro? Global warming is turning the water source for that into mud flats.
How's that nuclear looking now, huh?
The last member of the human race, because of our arrogance, is gonna freeze to death, starving and naked in a cave, shortly after s/he burns the last stick of wood in existence.
After 10 days my 5 O'clock shadow is just coming in. It took over 4 months for me to look as if I meant not to shave.
Re: Here is my solution: make the poll part of the boarding process
This sound too much like including the passenger in the security loop as a sentient person. Where does this "Keep'em scared" come in, if the targeted sheep can ask embarrassing questions in the survey and otherwise question the so-called security and procedures?
This can never work, 'cause it is a step back and counter productive from the eventual total control by our over Overlords.
The competition is already trying to catch up
But they can't. (Comcast and AT&T) Too many years scratching each others back and over charging the customer and over paying the CEO's and doing the minimum they could get by with on upgrading their systems.
They've had the fiber in the ground a block from where I live, for almost a month now.
Google's free 5meg Internet access is the same speed as I used to pay $65 a month for, from a cable provider.
And Now $70 a month for 1 gigabit. I really hope Google hurts them financially for their greediness all these years.
Signed up and chomping at the bit...
Re: Re: Just wait
What brown envelope? It is income. They report the kick-back portion of the "contribution" on their taxes as an expense.
Microsoft Trustworthy Computing
That's where the guy said he worked, from in the link at the end of the article.
Anyway, I think I'll be waiting a bit to install this Batch-O-Patches on the 5 XP machines I am responsible for.
