It probably is a rebadged Supermicro just with a sub vendor logo slapped on.
Sorry I am lazy :(
Re: Gartner is, as usual, smoking crack.
I complain about everything, its to hot, its to cold, why did no one refill the coffee jar, the copier is telling you to put paper in, but mostly I complain about software.
Take a crappy software package (Which I think is worse than Mac OS9) which appears to be made for Windows 3.1, which can be made to run on Windows 7. Its actually supported but hasn't been updated since the last ice age. Last year the server software (Which needs to be run on the console session and annoys me by randomly stopping every year demanding I click Oui) decided it had no disk space available when it had 40. Turns out a very old bug in their dev software where if you have exactly a multiple of 4GB of space free it decided it was out of space. Every new OS that comes out I ask will it run on so and so and get told, no idea please let us know and how you made it run.
More resale value than what it looks like I'll get for my Q10 once my contract comes up for renewal!
Recent years I have been surprised with all the outsourcing, HP for instants use BT for repairs where as before it was I believe a proper HP engineer (Could be wrong).
If any companies have issues such as the service company or the company producing the tech quite often its the customer who gets the run-around.
Ah so he will be taken to court soon and forced to pay a few billion pounds.
I know far to many users who use Password<number>.
They don't seem to get it that its a stupid password, as well as they don't understand why I am very annoyed by the cracked screen on their laptop, which magically appeared but also seems to be the same size as the paperwork they have in their other hand.
They didn't spot the double green rings

@ThomH "Internet Explorer was the default bundled browser with all Macs from 1998 until 2003 or so"
Which explains why I can't remember their being another browser on the system.
Learn something new everyday
*Shudders* OS9 X_x
Or another release on MAC
/me remembers IE something on MAC OS9 because for some reason the company I worked for used it, exists nearest window
Re: An alternative viewpoint is...
What if I want to go to Lake Side?
Except this years Dilbert desk calendar showed the pointy haired boss telling Mordac to lower the shields, in which he did!
Re: Even skinny spares are a problem...
"I assume by odd size you mean a so-called "space saver" wheel"
Yes for some reason I couldn't recall what they were called, my wheel with tyre actually do fit in the hole, but the width means there is a bump in the floor.
"Not many of us carry a spare vehicle battery."
Good point but I tend to replace batteries on my car as soon as I'm aware they are on the way out, so far I've never had a flat battery (Although I have probably doomed myself to a flat battery now I have said that)
Re: Even skinny spares are a problem...
I still prefer a spare (Full size as current odd size spare makes roundabouts rather more interesting). I've had to grab my car from a car park at around 8 o clock to realise I had a puncture, being 50 miles from home I checked and was unable to find anyone still open. Although my speed was reduced it got me home and I could just drive to a tyre shop the next morning.
Same here except BT also trolls me >_<
I would normally moan about not being extend storage, but 64GB would be more than enough for my needs. So far I have only ever required one 32GB sd card in my phone. However I don't use my phone to view videos on (Screen is to small).
I remember disabling USB storage devices, I had to hide for weeks!
Weeks after several people brought in infected drives and they had to hide from the IT department (Its no wonder they outsourced us and changed our name).
Not Anon because I can't be bothered to click the Anon button
Re: They need to drop the gimmicks.
Have to concur the games had embedded tech from GameSpy which also affects a large amount of PC games when the service was discontinued. Developers who had not gone to another platform as Steam nowadays require to use services provided by volunteer communities. Console users have little hope of online games ever working again (Which is a shame as Mario Kart worked well on the wii)
Re: What would you advise your Grandmother to use?
For myself I've come to the conclusion free AV's just aren't worth it.
I currently have Eset security suite on my parents computers and sisters which I renew yearly and do as part of their Christmas presents. The only issue tends to be renewal costs always cost more than buying from new and for more than 4 devices I am forced to go for a small business edition (Which is £20 more per machine, so at the moment I have a separate license for myself).
Of course you can use whichever AV you like, Eset means the username and password needs to be set and that's it unlike other renewals from other popular AV suites which require a new cd key. I've seen the cloud product from Symantec and although looked interesting is only really for businesses.
Yes it costs money but means less spam (AVG being one which confused family members whenever they released a new version).
Odd in my Natwest the information desk will actually pay in Cheques (Although that was a few years ago), if they aren't busy.
What they meant to say was people in their 40's
I want both
Traffic jams are just a bore and a major annoyance (Looking at you stupid SUV owner who just barged into my lane), I wouldn't mind having a car do the boring journeys for me and when the traffic clears up I'll drive (So that will be one day per year).
I wonder how automated cars will handle ice.
neat additions to her personality
Hopefully the non psychotic kind
and that took 10 mins to remove
Let me guess, you brought a new one
/me runs from flaming Mac Users
Wow ArcServe supports future MSSQL products from 18200 years ahead!!
Cubical Green Carpets here
"average hatchbacks", odd I tend to mostly undertake 4X4, SUV's, taxi's (Excludes black cabs they are mostly in lane 1 doing 50) and people carriers.
Edit: Where I am traveling at the speed limit and using lane 1 because the outer lanes already have BMW's doing 100MPH, where there is nothing else in lane 1.
Re: Captains Log
I guess it was an euphemism since someone has down voted
Facebook can't compete against it, well except the fact they tend to get left crashed on planets.
Re: Support, support, support
The main problem is most people on these programs will want to make money than provide help for free.
Re: Storage cost
Or a house to sell let alone a Flat
Didn't realise that, so you can just replaced the outter bits and basically get a Q10
To the Russian Death Crash Videos
They hold the truth (As well as tonnes of crashes).
Of course other Crash related videos are available on the internet.
Does anyone actually use these?
I always find it annoying when someone uses voice stuff like this, the user also finds it annoying when you then randomly shout words to confuse it.
Reminds me of the Dilbert episode, I wonder if this is where Wally currently resides.
Re: 4TB SSD's
I think for consumer devices SATA is ok, even an SSD cache on my machine with SATA2 saw a huge improvement.
Re: "Marvel ARM 1.2GHz processor"
What type of ARM processor?
ARM have loads of different types of processors from fast single threaded to slower multi threaded designs.
Ok I'll bite, how much does it store?
Re: That's not a rock...
Well I can't just leave my Mysteron devices unprotected.
Re: Taking you to the cleaners
Ah you have not seen Murder She Wrote or Columbo then, always feels like the crown jewels are nicked from them whenever one is present.
Except maybe web browsers on legacy OS's (I'm talking about Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 here which had browsers and can use TCP/IP)
Re: I have your missing bits...
I also do, as well as someone to tend to me when I manage to hammer my big thumb, thankfully screwdrivers are not normally required instead hex keys which arent as sharp :D
What about Folded Displays
Would prefer a folded display, that way it can slip into a laptop case and be unfolded when required.
Assuming the downvotes are because your line speed negotiated with the exchange didn't degrade?
Sounds like an issue with your phone line degrading as it gets older
I remember those days, it was fine until it decided to eat its own database and I would wonder why no backup tapes were ejected (My fault for relying on the inbuilt database).
Oh I thought they would have travelators everywhere
But you pay for an Internet Service which in my books means they should provide a decent set of DNS servers as well as the connection.
Re: now lightbulbs need a firmware upgrade?
Hmm if I could get an IOT front door and windows I could just make up stuff like oh sorry I am late for work, my door decided to update its firmware and lock me in until it was done.
Re: Rather expensive versions chosen
Have to agree with the Car Dashcam, more decent car dashcams brands are becoming more available in the UK with a price range of around £70 to £120 for a decent 1080p camera.
