Sounds as though IPv6 has had a stake driven into its heart.
With peanut butter, on a hot muffin? Oh....
Where can I buy the hat?
From Mackeeper: "I have zero confidence that the campaign will be honest about that in whatever response they put out publicly (that’s if they do actually acknowledge the situation)."
Unless they can find a way to gain political spin by blaming it on someone outside the campaign, we'll never hear about it.
So where's the tone arm?
The one with the half-speed mastered "Dark Side of the Moon" LP in the (big) pocket.
How many time crystals are required to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool? The Albert Hall?
We are always looking to improve our policies to make sure they both promote free expression and keep our community safe
Oh, bullshit. You're always looking for ways to monetize your naive users while keeping your worthless jobs safe.
Assange is abusing his public notoriety to evade charges any other man would have to face. Ecuador should toss him out on the street.
Paris and I have heard of them.
If we're so much cleverer, how come we're all flat broke at the end of the month?
OTOH, we're not being hunted by the law and facing prison. Not me, at least.
That would be Microsoft.
At first glance I read the headline as "New Microsoft Bugs Bunny." For a moment there I thought the Microsoft board had replaced the CEO with someone who listened to users. What's up with this new user-snooping OS, Doc?
The one with 3.0-diopter reading glasses in the pocket.
And worth every cent!
Groups like Lurk are what worry me about AI. In all discussions of AI, the assumption is always that it will be implemented and controlled by White Hats. Whatever form AI takes in the future it surely will be an asset to the Black Hats. Security is the business to be in going forward, IMO. And FFS, don't click on that link in the email from your "bank"! You may launch SKYNET.
On legitimate news sites. One of these days I may take a look at it.
But at least in space exploration, I think America is still pretty great.
Virgin Mobile, my carrier, is now owned by Sprint. My monthly plan costs $35. No idea how many phone minutes that buys -- I never use it up. But it offers "unlimited data." Ha! After 2.5 GB they'll throttle the download speed. Got a warning last week that I'd reached 85% of allowance.
OGs like me carry GPS-enabled phones in hope the authorities will find our remains before the vultures do, so neither minutes or bandwidth are a problem for me. Does seem pretty cheesy, though. So I use Wi-Fi when I need to update the few apps I have. The Joy of Capitalism.
The one with the cheap Moto G in the pocket.
Okay, I'm editing Wikipedia to move London and Paris to the U.S. I'll give you Washington, D.C., and one other city to be negotiated.
If I had it to do over, I might have gone into geology as a career. Always liked looking at road cuts and the like. Now my expiration date is approaching, sure would like to catch a ride on the OSIRIS-REx mission! First human to visit an asteroid in space? What a way to go.
Note to editors: There's something missing from the article. It says Bennu is "about 1,900 feet long - roughly the size of five football fields." Okay, but we also need to know its volume in Olympic swimming pools.
With ad- and script-blocking add-ons we've built a wall, and we're making the advertisers pay for it!
(Yes, the Title assumes he has a heart, which is debatable.)
Looking better every day.
Victims of hacking don't.
That attribute could be useful in remote areas of Siberia. Seems like a good idea, especially as there's [note proper usage] no shortage of gas bags in Russia.
Microsoft knew what Windows 10 was worth.
Sorry, but that's when I would have gone to catch the next train home. With hardware that old, you just have to know you're walking into a minefield.
Why would a(n allegedly) communist regime want the People looking at running-dog capitalist advertisements?
When I do a left-handed Shift-1 to type ! on my laptop, I have to hit the Shift key dead center or it doesn't shift. So sometimes I get Yahoo1 instead of Yahoo! Having to type "Yahoo!" has forced me to become more accurate when pressing Shift. Otherwise I rarely use the exclamation point character. Thank you, Yahoo1 (oops) for improving my life, even though I never used any of your services. I'm sure you'll be missed.
They should have used a VPN to stream overseas Netflix. Probably beyond their competence to install Hola. Too late now, suckers.
Catch-WinX: If you haven't upgraded you must be in need of Assisted Technology. Therefore, an update will be forced on you.
Turned system on this morning and it works fine. No nags (since fixing that problem) or ads, still lets me install only Windows Updates I want. Not broken, not going to fix it.
He'll get bored after a few months and resign, putting Pence in the top slot. Good luck to the country if that old, white theo-crat gets to select a few Supreme Court justices. Hillary is no saint, but in the present circumstances, she's the best hope.
Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development. It is a product of the Earth Summit (UN Conference on Environment and Development) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992.
The Republicans oppose it, so it must be dangerous!
Erm... so what exactly is Verizon buying?
And they'll have the trifecta of losing .com entities. Too bad they missed out on pets.com.
Translation: We're good at hiding the ways we spy on users, for our own protection.
The real question will be who will be his Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice?
In keeping with his pathological need to be inconsistent, they'll have to be non-American citizens. Vladimir Putin and Andrea Leadsom would be my guess.
That's what Pokey-whatever reminds me of. When I bought my first handheld GPSr for use when hiking, I did some geocache hunting to get familiar with its use. Bo-ring! Is anyone still doing geocaching? Pokey will likely go the same way.
The one with the Garmin in the pocket.
Current events and the leading candidates in the presidential race are proof there is No God But His Noodly Goodness.
Funny how they find time to interrogate the FBI director and Atty General, but can't seem to pass legislation to halt the spread of the Zika virus. Thinking it over, maybe pre-empting Congress isn't such a bad idea. As long as we don't have to keep paying them.
The hope by some that Clinton's use of a private email server would somehow provide a silver bullet to kill her candidacy has however died.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Angry House Republicans are announcing plans to investigate FBI Director James Comey's decision against pressing criminal charges for Hillary Clinton over her handling of classified emails. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Comey's decision defies explanation and leaves many questions unanswered. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee called Comey to testify on Thursday, and the Judiciary panel announced that Attorney General Loretta Lynch would appear next week.
The GOP has to keep this in the news so Trump can use it against Clinton. Fox News [sic] will trumpet it and the Trumpettes will eat it up. GOP Congress-critters can't see what's coming. If you believe what he says, a Trump presidency will render both houses of Congress redundant, because Trump "has a very good brain" and he will make his own decisions. He don't need no stinking advice and consent.
That said, Clinton was reckless and that's not a good prerequisite for a president either.
Fortunately, the vast majority of Reg readers see through the Kardashian business. But they wouldn't be so widely known if a large segment of America's population didn't track their every movement, and the possible puns are intended.
This paper about the negative influence of the K Klan on American culture is an indictment of that culture as well. That's what People Who Care About These Things should be looking at. Is it surprising that the Kardashian phenomenon exists within the same time and space as Trump's presidential candidacy, or the rising number and scope of mass shootings?
Don't oversimplify and say the entire country is sick; not everyone loves the Kardashians, Trump or AR-15 rifles.Two out of three are getting way more media attention than they deserve though. How many Americans have been seduced by these false prophets with big butts and big mouths? The student's thesis is a springboard for a necessary discussion, so I'm glad to see it. Yeah, maybe studying sociology is "easier" than learning to code, but that doesn't make it any less valuable. Sooner or later you have to get up from your keyboard and walk out into the real world.
As long as eBay and El Reg render well, what else matters?
Our menu has REAL Food, cooked just the way you like it. Want extra cheese on your Penne Rosa? How about spinach in your Japanese Pan Noodles? No problem. Each dish is cooked to order. So go ahead, get creative. The possibilities are endless!
How about a big debit in your bank account? No problem.
You all are complaining because when you ticked the "X" it went ahead and installed the Wonderful Windows 10 anyway. Did you forget that "X" is the Roman numeral for "10?"
Next you'll be telling us you expect your car to stop when you push the brake pedal. Where's the adventure in that?
If you were educated in the UK I think the nation has a much bigger problem than "imagrants" sucking up "benifits."
