H&S should mean some sort of Lock off procedure, where if someone needs to access a dangerous area that part is disabled in some way (Normally power). I have only ever seen drum/food lines up close and even those I wouldn't dare go anywhere near if they were off let alone on and running.
Re: You have to wonder how much they spent
Yes and every change to the Logo will have some sort of reason behind it and why stupid things like email signatures must have Kerning on (Actually happened ARGH!!!!)
British Overseas Territory not UK Overseas Territory
Re: Samsung exploding washing machines
Comparing devices with moving parts to ones without is a tad unfair.
Is title Correct?
I assume the security suite and other products with the same script scanners not running the pre-release engine are affected as well?
I could be wrong but nothing on the Eset site confirm what was affected and haven't seen any updates on my Eset install (Security Suite).
I find the Passport to bug.
I am also after a replacement to the Q10 (A BB one as BB10 does what I want it to) but it looks like its not going to happen :(
lax domain name maintenance
"once the promotion concluded, Heinz lost interest in the domain"
I've been firing stuff at Marketing like "This domain for promotion x is a year old and gets 2 views a month. It costs money so is it going to be reused or can I get rid of it?", I thought just leaving domains not used by anyone for 10 years would be lax maintenance. Fingers crossed no QR codes are on the products we produce here or else I'm the scapegoat.
Re: Earth tremors...
The BOFH and PFY can only use that excuse so many times before the bodies are discovered!
Ah I seem to have offended some Natwest staff, damn that's my scheduled payments going to fail then :(

Re: You forgot the most important point
hmm but its missing a vital item, a scapegoat!
"perform a bare-metal restore"
I remember these being an absolute pain to configure and test (Ex ArcServe user, I think these came in at Version 10), thankfully never had to perform a bare metal restore on a live system.
So basically they are communicating like Beavis and Butthead, just from further away.
One I have to add is I haven't felt the need to install apps to get basic functionality I expect from a device I want to use to use Email, Calendars and Phone.
Yup, my contract up I have a Q10 and they haven't replaced the Q10 which I find odd. I would have at least expected a hardware refresh and why would I bother replacing like for like?
For me it has been my best phone for years and years (For the simple reason I haven't found the need for apps for functions I am used to and expect to be on a "smart" phone), its the perfect size for what I use it for. It hasn't broken by itself (I ran into the edge of a table cracking the display which was my fault!!). I don't want another freaking android landfill device!
@John But if they just work and aren't to costly why go through the hassle of moving?
Events such as this do make web hosting companies more aware of their shortcomings (Well apart from the con artists who grab your money and run). I use enom myself, don't use them for anything other than renewing my domains.
Patch the broadband router regularly;
Brilliant advise because every manufacturer rushes out regular patches!
Re: Very confused.
"Sadly, availability of games seems to be the driving force in mobile selection."
I thought it was image, when I got a Blackberry people (Mostly with iThings) did point and laugh. Still it does everything I need from it and I don't need to install some dodgy app for basic functionality that then decides to steal screen space with a banner ad.
They only renamed it to OCS recently didn't they, JUST STAY WITH ONE FING NAME!
I pay (For home use) because I am sick of Nagware or the product confusing whoever is using it.
Re: Hang on a moment
Impossible for me, every bleeding marketing agency used here seems to live and breathe WordPress, every new site brings new demands for "oh this file/folder should have 777 security" (They don't like the Wordpress wiki page where it states 777 should not be used) and when I ask was the last time they applied patches I get responses of mostly its not up to them or its up to the server its hosted on to ensure to prevent execution of bugs (They don't like me pointing out the fact they asked for files and folders to be set to 777).
Re: How about the part that matters?
What if the sellotape fails to hold the battery in (Because the majority of home users I see drop their machines and the battery bay tends to be something where cheap plastic clips break easily)?
Re: Where's a frackin...
So basically the short circuit robot without a head
Re: "Just for starters, Nano Server is 64-bit only, meaning 32-bit binaries won't run"
But they can make it available as an installable feature like the GUI surely?
Erm considering this article starts off with showing a Solwise then displaying their chart why not review their 1.2GB units which are much cheaper?
By the way I am biased here as I use Solwise the dual Ethernet port 1.2GB units!
Except it would damage modifications made for free, who in their right mind would give their time to something when they can get paid for doing it?
Btw I am all for Mods, Sven Co-op 4ever (Other Half Life modifications also available)!
Hangon a moment
"It's not really much more expensive to give a user a company laptop than a company desktop"
Notebook computers for Businesses are normally 1/3 more as you have to also provide docking stations, a posh bag because the old one smells, a two factor device such as an RSA keyfob, etc.... You then need to provide a bigger connection to the outside world to support them, the headache of Oh I accidently stamped on the keyboard and then threw it out of a window. So my experience is Desktops still are a much cheaper option overall.
"Productivity is usually impacted as a result of the reduced intra-company communication" Hmm except the people who refuse to talk to anyone they sit next to and have to emailed instead whilst ccing everyone in the building for everything.
Re: They are computers
"a huge desktop machine shouldn't be nearly 5 times as bad (the base gaming PSU is considered to be around 450-500W"
But like your laptop Power brick the power supply won't be fully used but unlike desktop machines your laptop power supply doesn't have an 80 Plus rating. I would like laptop PSU's to have such a rating but its not going to happen and may actually be very wasteful.
GTA V seems amazingly optimised I haven't seen any machine have any issues running it at all although everyone I know who has it has at least a discreet graphics card rather than relying on the embedded stuff.
Re: Hangon which version of XP?
Damn edit time has passed and just realised 48000 embedded machines is very very unlikely, I haven't been in such a Nuclear Plant before but assume there is no way it would need that many machines to run the equipment via specialist equipment. Therefore I think its an insane amount of outdated machines with internet connections.
Hangon which version of XP?
Its lame they have that many machines internet connected if they are running the outdated XP OS but XP Embedded is still supported for the next year.
Box to big I think will be one and Couriers in a hurry, courier chucks in a huge box (Also marked as requiring two people to handle) closes it running away and doesn't hear the big smashing noise when the boot window smashes.
I remember those Dell cases, compared to their other cases this one was just easy to open and didn't have anything which would attempt to eat my hand if I opened it the wrong way.
Re: "the UK's attempt at high-speed rail"
Oi don't forget us Essex/Herts people!
Bleeding expensive around here!
Re: Low density data center
Yes but then you have to ensure the server room is locked and not easy to break into, large vents create an easy way in which the insurance companies don't like.
Re: "This aircraft carrier-
Ninjas are badass!
My experience is if it runs XP it will run Windows 7 just as well.
hmm so you recommend Hitachi as everyone seems to run around screaming about Seagates.

Re: Which IIyama monitor are we talking about?
iiyama monitors starting with E don't have height adjust, B monitors do
The height adjust monitor would be a B248XHS-XX (Where X is a variation)
Have them here as for the price has the best height adjust
I always change them to install when shutting down, installing whilst I am doing something is outright annoying.
Also due to the amount of updates I'm more of the just install and stop pestering me type of person.
Or just set your Google account not to provide personalised Ads, hasn't shown me any ads in years.
Although Server 2012 and higher are 64-bit only, 32-bit applications still run
The biggest problem I find tends to be the apps with 16 bit installers (It amazing how many apps we used which were supported by vendors that still used hideously old installer packages), my own experience is 32 bit apps run fine on 64 bit but non sub system to handle 16 bit apps anymore.
Lots of fun where companies are no more or when you ask them "will it run on such and such" the response is "We don't know, why don't you test and find out".
Its easy enough to unpack but takes time to find out what registry keys are needed, find out it has something like Interbase 3.x and then cry when they need to be given stupid security permissions because it wants to have a file hardcoded on somewhere like the root of the C:\
The poor geek you send to
"The poor geek you send to figure out why the server has dropped off the network risks tripping over something"
Haven't tripped over anything but in my youth I have got stuck behind a comms cabinet when I tried to get round the back in a tiny room.
Re: Easy Peasy
Yes buts its good for stopping me randomly buying stuff from <Insert popular tat flogger> when drunk
Re: Easy Peasy
Yes but after changing lots of passwords for the fifth time many years ago I got fed up.
I now have two passwords, one which unlocks my password file in a popular password utility and the other a popular email service. If I lose both I am well and truly screwed.
Oh great now I have to hope they don't decide to dump one of Kofax's current bits of software we use which is deeply embedded in another product.
Re: Looks stupid from an enterprise perspective...
"those who just migrated to 7 won't jump to 10 soon"
I would assume home users would have gone for 8, business users I doubt would get a free upgrade to 10 anyway. I must admit I will where I can be making sure the free upgrade is taken advantage of.
Upvoted for info but my dashcam uses h.264 DO NOT GET ONE WITH MJPEG video they suck!
