I find it odd
In my department articles such as this gain an immediate I used to have one of those and those yet anything new and shiny is boring.
Maybe someone needs to stop with the rounded corners and produce something "old school"
Re: Well done El Reg
The mysterons would attempt to replicate and transport the Beers but have been held up with Near Miss forms from the breakages this end.
Re: ... Blood from a stone?
You would need some serious hardware to try and get more bitcoins and I suspect these days it will cost more in processing and power than you would get back as they get harder and harder to "mine".
Re: Cheeky fookers
I'll charge you a discounted rate of £1 for this comment
Re: Send reg reporters on an engineering refresher
Googling metal lathe appears to shoe El Reg is correct :(
I havent downvoted as I also thought it was a milling machine before spotting the additional handles.
Re: When you threaten Meetup, it's blackmail...
1) Ah you need MultiTOS then, just write whatever is missing
2) Yes I am allowed to make mistakes, what am I supposed to do when testing my work fire myself for every typo?
3) I stand corrected there, <Insert Whitty Comeback>
Re: When you threaten Meetup, it's blackmail...
1. Windows 3.1 is adequate for most peoples needs, you have a point and click interface and it can run a word processor. You don't have to upgrade you can ignore the messages and continue as normal (The same as any OS, what do you think your crusty old router runs).
2. Humans make mistakes, computers are designed by humans, etc...
3. You can still get support by giving MS money, otherwise why would they bother they want you to buy new shiney items.
Re: More users means news outlets more likely to notice
Hmm can I slap a laser link on the side of your house?
More users means news outlets more likely to notice
I use them for ADSL (GIVE ME FIBRE DAMN YOU) and its fine for the price
At least they are committed to something.
Re: The down side...
More like from the Dilbert animated cartoon you have a guy with a phone trying to get a signal.
Re: Cheapest option sometimes
@AC "the user is responsible for what transpires from that decision"
Yeah we have that but try getting people to accept it, toys out of the pram crying to their boss, then the boss starts crying when they find out we are going to cross charge said department for data recovery.
Re: Cheapest option sometimes
Sometimes users don't want to be educated, for instances showing a user one to one how to backup their files. One user decided to deny ever being told anything when their HD died (Thankfully recovered via a specialist service) and everyone else who was shown one to one and signed a form also started denying it.
Very annoying as its simply SyncToy, open click all and click run all -_-
Why arent you a millionaire
I don't see how people see this, they think everyone in IT is rolling in it when actually because most users are cheap its very hard to earn anything in the ICT sector.
Do you have an inhouse department, sounds like an outsourced reseller
Bye Bye Minecraft Videos
All the Fan Videos look like they'll be for the chop on Utube (Other Vid sites available).
Oh well back to watching Cat Videos
Oh dear you have just opened a can of worms.
Duck and Cover!
Damn can't do the whinge of ner you have to pay for your service packs anymore :(
Hardware from 2007 is supported (Assuming all x86 and x64 hardware) so its not really an XP moment.
Re: I'm not letting Motorola scan MY ring!
I doubt you will want to considering their price, although I have supplied said devices no-one uses them as they prefer guns.
Ah so by delayering they are not telling people to get their kit off, although unsure which would be worse when compared.
Re: Damn thieves
@AC I'll remember to add the <Sarcasm> tags next time
I bet they don't steal cables that supply their own services. I hope you choke on the 10p you made.
Re: @James 51
Trackpad at the bottom I don't think would work, having to move you thumb lower would be uncomfortable if you had to use it continually.
Although I would love a bit more accuracy when editing text I maybe only need to use it once in a blue moon so would prefer a bit more screen real estate.
Re: So in summary
"So until phones have more than 1Tb of RAM I think we will be OK with ARM for now"
Dear god what hidious flappy bird fart apps will require that much resource!
I suppose it depends if they have access to the source code as well, I can't see it being done without some form of access to the operating systems source code (Not sure how much access MS give these days).
Seems to be what happens when you need to pad out the story, the linked story are ancient and if they really want to dig their NOC blog lists the majority of issues that affect their services.
Anyway Enta.net if you are watching give your resellers the ability to resale Fibre already
Re: Are the martians annoyed by...
Yes they were following to see if Captain Black was on board, until it started reversing and they paniced and fled.
Re: Battery FFS
They can't make money out of standard devices, they want you to buy the shiny expensive one.
Re: "He used my access to make you a domain admin?!"
That can get you fired, make the wallpaper a screenshot of the existing desktop and hide the taskbar along with desktop icons (Or just kill explorer.exe (Other Shells are available)).
Re: Shame about the nasty front cover.
Yeah they should make it so the server looks like a Ninja!
Ninja's make everything cool
Re: Obviously not
But but I want a machine with 64TB of memory :(
Re: Aggressive and smart move
Have to agree with your comment about the Desire HD, far to many times it was mentioned it would get another update and it never appeared.
Considering in the days of 56k this sort of thing was readily available (Although often at a monthly charge), I am surprised I havent seen more of them.
Dont even use a watch anymore
Not sure about anyone else but when phones became smarter I ditched my watch as I saw no point, time well look at mobile.
Re: Home versions
Gamesack on Youtube has actually reviewed Space Harrier on a lot different systems (More recently on a Sharp X68000) although across lots of reviews. Its amazing how much power games of the day in the arcade actually required and console and PC gaming can't recapture it (Although probably cheaper in the long run).
Re: Southsea Arcade
So are nearly all arcades, the past few years when I have got to the beach thought I wonder what arcade machines they have now and its quite depressing :(
Ended up getting sunburn instead
Only if you are in the US, its definatly changed as a Kickstarter I pledged for a week before didn't go via Amazon. I'm not sure when this changed and who they use (Or whether its themselves) as previous Kickstarters required Amazon.
So convert it for desktop use when Android uses the Linux kernel, seems like a waste of time to me just use a current distro
Re: Does this mean ... ?
I could do with some more coasters
Re: 'For the same price in South Korea, you get a fibre link to your home'
I hope the BOFH and PFY drop you below a server rooms raised floor >_<
Re: Yep, a bloody waste of time
OTA Updates, no thanks.
Message pops up "Updating please do not turn off or drive"
<15 minutes later>
<Update complete, please restart for the changes to take effect>
Re: Cheese? In a cottage pie?
Well its either that or dollop of Tomato Ketchup
I did not just read that, surely a typo
"The Department of Health has exclusively told The Register it’s in talks with Microsoft to develop a migration plan to move PCs off of Windows XP"
I'm going with the I can't believe this PR tosh, just developing a plan now what is he on?
Also a way to please the Mrs
They don't seem to like the idea of several ugly loud machines in the corner of the living room.
Re: <scratches head>
Hmm so by the looks of it they will replace 8 of those with ads
Maybe crying babies are smarter than we realise, they may have cracked the website and placed their favourite image up.
As a previous HTC (Desire HD or something) user I would welcome that as I don't consider them as a premium brand, therefore if they build a decent phone cheap enough I will be interested.
I wonder if they want everyone to think
"You can't get fired for buying IBM but you can for Lenovo, so you may as well just buy ours instead!"
ah so to get out of that you would need to do the "There is no spoon" routine and leave promptly via the catflap
Re: Them aliens is here to steal our...
Of course, the Mysterons are big fans of Lolcats and as long as they continue we are safe.
