Surely they must have BCC'ed the mailing address.
Re: Well Done.
I am moving the suggestion box
Almost had a heart attack
Thought I was in on a bank holiday there.
Re: one good thing about Heartbleed ...
What do you expect when there is a PR shield in the way, they probably thought they could get acused of something and changed it to it.
Re: I don't bother with watches anymore
I still think they are obsolete, obviously its my opinion so :P
I don't bother with watches anymore
I have a phone with the time on, a clock inside the car, on the office wall, on the bottom right of the computer screen. I see no need for a watch and I think they are obsolete.
Considering the amount of machines we get in now with 35W power supplies I assume they mean it will have up to 100W.
Re: Wow talk about branching out.....
Until Apple tell them stop making eletrical items shaped like bins (They probably own several patents for it)
Re: One Question
Correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure if you use the MS AV option it still downloads these via Windows Update (At least thats what it appears to do on Windows Vista).
Obviously if you are not going to use it disable Windows Update and associated Services.
At least they are actively using the patents and making some effort to shot themselves in the foot (As it may make some money this way but to me it looks like the money is in the app stores).
Have to agree my days of bankrupting myself are long gone and so are my eyes (Can't see 1080p on monitor so have 720p as getting glasses every ther year is also expensive)
Re: I always said I didn't "get" Twitter
I wonder what will be the next MySpace, Facebook or Twitter (Other Social Site are available but as Google+ has noone on it that one doesnt count)
For those of us who still have Windows 95 (Stupid ISA Card which noone wants to pay to replace only has drivers for it before the company went bankrupt), I must be well beyond panicing.
I wondered why I was losing hair.
Re: This is all very nice but...
5.25 has .25 available, slap heatpipes on em!
Re: Helpdesk/Service Desk Recommendations
Always found Manage Engine's Service Desk application to be exactly whats needed. Support for the application is very helpful, it looks pretty for users and is good at email updates.
KB is there but I never found anyone actually used them.
Can be hosted on a variety of OS's and the patching process is easy enough.
Backend DB can be one it installs or your own SQL server.
true workstations - think Mac Pro
I prefer to think of something in an actual computer case instead of a dustbin
Re: "Windows XP is a thirteen year old operating system .."
Pretty sure it’s the same for any OS, the issue is as usual programmed by human squishy things. Sometimes they don't realise that bit of code they just put in might not be used the way they envisaged.
"Dear lord we need to replace our Windows XP Machines!
Quick order a replacement for all of them before the April deadline, oh wait use the tendering process."
Its all automated anyway so I think this admin fee is excessive for telling Nominet change the IPS tag to so and so.
Probably just a way to try and lock-in existing customers
Considering staff and holidays werent taken into account it makes me think this Hospital has to be a real life one from Theme Hospital!
Seen anyone with Bloaty Head recently?
Re: 2 Phones
Oh I'm doing it wrong, Q10 personal and Nokia Feature Phone (Which I prefer because it gets charges once a fortnight)
Places who don't want to pay for the new BES 10 server upgrade licenses as they are unsure whether they will bin it.
A lot of Business Users still don't have the option of BYOD so have to get whatever they are given.
Probably like existing 3D films, expect you to wear your glasses be uncomfortable and hate whenever one of your friends decides they want to see a film in 3D rather than 2D.
Not sure this applied with BT Infinity anymore as they are now seperated, but certainly the best advise for ADSL users.
I imagine anything that can open Legacy Documents but we all know about them.
Just need to start worrying when exploits on plain text files start to appear.
Re: Wow, RealPlayer.
Quicktime, Realplayer, WM9+ all are thankfully not missed.
I do miss Sonique though, which was odd as it wasn't actually the best music player (Eye Candy maybe)
Re: A brilliant solution
Yes hopefully they won't notice the Spy Rocks whilst pointing fingers at each other.
Nope, its a pirate thing used on Youtube to hide the fact you have pilfered someone else content.
Re: Plusnet's supplied routers ... yeh, right
I don't have to worry about that, my Plusnet router overheats if anyone tries to use it.
Re: Brilliant idea
"Then you could make contactless payments with coins"
My head wants to explode thinking about this.
Re: cpanel nix admin are to blaim
So is the majority of software designed to make it easier to manage and maintain servers, so add Plesk, Interworx, Webmin (Other web control panels also available) to your list.
Re: Comparison with DirectX?
Ok never heard about NVidia cards with poor OpenGL performance, please provide some proof AC
Re: Comparison with DirectX?
Somehow I don't think it will matter much longer, because of the console effect less and less PC Games actually push the boundries and if they do use DirectX use an older version.
Most game developers have already gone multi platform (Valve has deprecated Direct3D in its engines in favour of using OpenGL) and I can see the majority following. The next few years will be a big test as valve's own Linux port may further reduce Windows grip on "PC Gamers" who may decide to jump ship.
Terms: You try it again and we'll buy you out and your lawyerdroids, fire everyone saying its about cost saving.
Saw this and slapped my head as well, with serial and usb adapters it doesnt require much overhead from standard hardware.
Considering most people just buy something in a price range for a laptop I can't see many people actually caring much about this announcement.
Re: Cloth nappies FTW
Oi don't encourage people to put everyones bill up!
Think of the Grown Ups!
BT has email
Meh never use ISP supplied emails, the addresses always look something silly like username23487623784623@mail.ISPNAME.net
Re: Coffee cup holder, someone's got to mention the coffee cup holder! www = internet
Oh dear lord what happens when she goes to Facebook or a news website where things change on a regular basis.
Re: And that ..
I would still get another Blackberry, last update added a torch which was the only app I required so I'm all set.
Must be me but after 3 attempts I just reset my password as I obviously can't remember it.
companies rarely understand what it is they are purchasing
The companies trying to peddle their wares don't tend to do much better, all that is needed normally is oh how does such and such feature work for them to crack.
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: More users means news outlets more likely to notice
Hmm can I slap a laser link on the side of your house?
At least they are committed to something.
