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.
Women Gamers Only Tourney
I just see this as a way for males to droll over women and its just tacky
I wonder how many further servers are 2000, NT they have
Yeah I fail to see how this confirms Windows 8 is a complete disaster, I would have thought if 0% of people were using it then it would be a disaster.
Re: Bad software engineering
I think you will find the majority of makers are on the list (Although I don't see Supermicro).
Re: What authority did you have...
What, you don't even check sites if abuse requests or requests from the customers to look at something? Thats pretty poor service.
/me fire up several Windows NT4 Servers just to troll the MS Marketting Department
Although plugged into a mini hub with several NT4 workstations so NER!
Its better than letting user have access to SQL, running several queries at once which deadlock and lock and wonder why the Information Something department is yelling at them to stop it.
Sounds like our days, regret giving everyone ODBC links (10 years ago mind you) to everything now can't get them removed (Lynch mobs form with fire and pickaxes).
Spend goodness knows how much on reporting software and in the end everyone just uses 50 million different versions of a spreadsheet no-one knows how works because the person who designed it left years ago.
MS will care about Win 7 as it still makes money from it, when it drops off like XP then it'll all change.
Re: Soccer fan?
Agreed, STOP IT!
I normally find it in %userprofile%\Desktop\passwords.txt or written in permanent Marker under the keyboard.
A Microsoft branded Android App Store?
With the unannounced checks of software licensing we've had from IBM, Microsoft, etc... yeah right
Re: H&S Nightmare
Where I work foam missiles would mean I would have to raise a near miss, lord knows what will happen when they find the shock tanks we now can't take out for fear of someone pointing and yelling UNSAFE!
Kickstarter for me has been great, I have only ever put towards projects I actually cared about rather than simply trying to buy stuff early (Although unfortunatly I think the majority of been computer games such as Carmageddon).
Yeah its not like any other TLD could be used to peddle fake wine
I would hate to be on Helldesk in the morning after this occured (Although if it was used as an alarm might be more balanced as staff wakeup realising their alarm didnt go off).
Happens at least once a week
User: Printers Broken
Tech: Which one?
User: Erm they are all broken
***Tech goes to printer room*** Finds two wanting toner, a copier out of paper and another one asking for B5 because someone told the printer to print B5
Screw console gimme now for PC!!
It better be a remake much like the The Secret of Monkey Island as I think that remake captured the game in all its glory and took me wayback but with nicer graphics (Or classic graphics if you hit the hotkey).
Currently at IS, waiting for the directors to realise we do still use and manage technology so I can get a proper job title.
Re: Time to rebrand HR....
In our mid sized company they have a cupboard full of Whisky although to blow your nose you have to use some ilness forms
Re: @P010nium "They paid it when........."
AMD brought you Beer, man all i got was some commission for selling finance contracts on Maxx PC's which was then removed and no incentive for it at all (Forms took forever to fill out and often the customer could not get the finance package so were often turned down).
Re: To be quite honest I had not realised that the beggers.......
Reminds me of SCO v. Novell
The moment you think its dead something tries to kickstart it
Re: Not to mention-
@hplasm Have to agree, always find large stretches of motorway have random queue or go slow messages and 7 out of 10 times nothing. The M11 is particularly annoying as it feels like for several junctions the same message is displayed and when you do get to an actual accident or something in the road everyone has sped up again.
Yes, but you may have a lot of times where its buffering
