and thanks for all the great hardware.
we had no prior notice that the FCC considered the use of this standardized, 'available-out-of-the-box' technology to be a violation of its rules
What a dipstick.
don't type KILL THE HUMANS
That might explain why The Reg hasn't heard back from the company.
El Reg is one of the few sites I'd consider paying for. But no way am I turning off ABP etc.
an enjoyably obtuse perspective
Or just damned good satire.
since we were in the US, Fidel Castro...
Lame. You should have gone for Che Guevera. He tried to convince Fidel to nuke the U.S. There are so many non-PC choices today, but selecting most of them would get you picked up by Homeland Security.
À la Tony Stark, expect a division to make sophisticated and efficient weapons systems. They don't have to adhere to that suffocating "Don't be evil" mantra anymore. Nukes+ Inc., anyone? Finally, the promise of Google Earth will be realized!
Win 2000 pinball is not bad
Win 2000 pinball rocked, but even though I had an oversized heatsink on my CPU, it really got hot in a hurry. The sound fx were excellent. Nowadays, the most-challenging computer game is trying to outwit Microsoft's attempts to install Windows 10.
Has 100 per-cent market share at my house.
Did they go away? I hadn't noticed.
Friend of mine was hired to run a tech-writing dept at a well-known company, at a very high salary. First task they gave her was to get rid of a woman in the department they didn't like. Once that was done, my friend's position suddenly became obsolete and she was out the door. Worked out for me, as later on I was approached to run a department at another company, where my first task would be to get rid of an old guy past his expiration date. At least I got an up-front warning. I told them to grow a pair and walked out of the interview.
Here, would-be cons, let me set it up for you. Use two drones, or enable one to carry multiple packages. First, strew packages across one end of the yard, to get all the other cons chasing them and distract the screws (that's con talk for "guards"). Then, when everyone else is busy, move the drone across the yard and drop the intended package to the waiting, solo con. I'd also suggest hash brownies and nicotine lozenges instead of the smoke-able stuff. That way he has a chance to ingest some before the screws wise up and take him down. (You didn't seriously think you'd get the package into the building, did you? Sheesh, no wonder you got caught!)
Too many government employees, elected or not, in all countries, think they are the ruling class. And too many citizens, whether from apathy or fear, allow that delusion to persist. In fact, we citizens are the rulers and they're only the hired help. That includes all elected officials as well as the heads of so-called "security" agencies. Too bad if some of them have to be smacked upside the head once in a while to remind them of their place.
Duncan is. Thanks for a lifetime of heroic investigation and reporting.
The Republicans have a long and consistent history of ignoring human rights, at home and abroad. The voting history of the Republicans in national office today shows that history lives on. FFS, he at least could switch to Independent.
He may have said "Glock 40" and the reporter mistakenly filled in the blanks. I call my Glock a "45" (it's .45 ACP caliber) not a "21," which is its model number. It would make some bodacious (obligatory red-neck word) holes in a drone. Of course, that would be the result of 13 accidental discharges, not a deliberate attempt to protect my privacy.
I wonder that the drone operator didn't see the guy coming out with the shotgun and divert his toy elsewhere.
Why does Obama have a mission to get these people online?
Anti-government militias and similar groups thrive in the very demographics and geographical areas where the unconnected live. How is the government going to keep tabs on their email and social-networking activities if they don't have any?
It's late 1999 all over again, but for real this time!
Just make sure the priest doesn't take the colander with him.
As a tech writer starting out in the 1970s, I always knew which s/w engineers to ask for help: The scruffiest-dressed ones with the most-unkempt hair. I knew they were good if they could get away with appearing like that, as it was clearly deliberate. Homeless people would have given them money.
HP should just keep snobbish customers away from those parts of the offices.
Follow-up: Looks like it's guardianapps.co.uk that, when unblocked, runs up the CPU temp. You need that script running to display comments.
I can't dupe the results now, but when I first put this laptop online last month, the fan kicked in to high speed on the Grauniad site, with ABP and NoScript running. The script(s) that run the Reuters slide shows are another good fan test.
Then, when you're too drive to drunk, you can take a cab and command your car to follow you home.

I would be delighted if it was the above and;
"Spectrographic analysis of reflected light or light passing through the atmosphere during occulation has identified water vapour, methane and CFCs (or other gases only possible by artificial means)." etc
Be careful what you ask for. All that stuff would mean it might also be inhabited by Kardashians.

It may be they were perceived as operating as a bank. Banks are regulated and they may have tried to circumvent the oversight.
They're giving away Windows 10. I figure they know what it's worth.
Didn't show up on mine, either. Had to download it manually.
Replying to myself... I'm really losing it. Took almost an hour but it's booted up again and all looks well. Still, this is an inordinate amount of time when there is no feedback from the process. Even the guys who fix my car are more informative than Windows Update.
Hope I didn't make a mistake installing this patch on the day of release. Laptop has been on "Preparing to configure Windows" screen for at least 30 minutes. The spinner's spinning and the dot is moving so I hope something good is happening. Would be nice to have more info. Finally got tired of waiting and fired up desktop to complain. This is the only patch it's installing.... There has got to be a better way. Windows 7 SP1. Forget the exact specs on laptop but it's an HP w/dual-core AMD about 2.7 GHz and 8-GB RAM.
Edit to add: A slow install of updates occurred a few years ago just as the power failed. The UPS shutdown sequence began and there was no way to override it, so this PC lost power mid-update. What a cluster-xxxx that was.
$199.99 (or should that be Profit)
Yes, but you get a lifetime's (the products, not yours) supply of security patches for FREE.
Whether you want 'em or not.
if the s/w I commonly use still worked on Windows 2000. As far as stability, Windows never got any better IMO. I still keep the system running, because Windows 7 lacks drivers for my perfectly good scanner and laser printer. I guess it all depends on your definition of "progress."
Agree. And even with VPN access to overseas streams (I'm in the U.S.), the content gets thin eventually. Content, people. Content. I guess it doesn't help that 20th-century-minded TV networks and film studios keep much desirable content off Netflix streaming.
More proof that science is fun!
Had the same problem two days ago. And when I rebooted it took so long to clear the "Configuring" screen I feared it had locked up the PC. After about a half hour and much anxiety on my part it finally cleared that screen and rebooted. FFS if they're going to force this stuff on us they might at least wire in some informational screens along the way. The old Win95 defragger was more friendly!
Adobe at least ought to change the default of trying to install something from McAfee every time you update Flash. How much do they think we can bear?!
Controlled airspace is there for a reason; the chances of a collision may be small but the consequences would be terrible.
Last I heard, his contraption was still aloft. Somewhere.
This sort of like the guilt and now outrage in the USA about the Confederate Battle Flag* being flown..
There's a big difference. The Confederate battle flag had all but vanished from sight until the Civil Rights movements of the 1960s, trying to desegregate schools in the South. That's when the battle flags re-emerged, coincident with brutal violence against civil-rights activists, especially blacks. Surely it was the intent of those who raised the battle flag over government buildings across the South to symbolically declare their belief in White Supremacy. The Civil War was fought over slavery. Anyone who tries to mush-mouth it into a fight for "states rights" is a GD liar or a fool. And the Confederate flag was the symbol of those who fought to continue enslaving black people. Your German collector isn't flying a Nazi flag, is he?
Regardless of what many white Southerners say -- and some of the less-enlightened ones may believe it -- the Confederate battle flag has become inextricably tied to racism, White Supremacy and violence against blacks. That's the "legacy" and "heritage" of the Confederacy. It's become a symbol far more powerful than a Panther tank, and it's past time for it to go back in the cellar.
Stonehenge was built as a playpen for mammoths.
How quickly can it run the length of an Olympic-sized swimming pool?

Has to be "Vonnegut." Imagine humanity, after all our wars and petty feuds, scheming and hustling, taken out by a frozen rock. It's all going to end someday, one way or another. If it happens in our lifetimes at least we get to say we saw it happen.
Seriously, the Elite want to know about a possible extinction event so they can barricade themselves against the inevitable financial and social upheaval that will ensue when word leaks out to the masses. This asteroid-gazing program isn't for the likes of us, it's for Our Betters.
how come no one has managed to track this guy down yet?
My guess is, he's paying off some fellow Russians for "protection."
We make terrorists. This is how we make them.
And then the M-I complex makes more munitions and drones to kill them. It's called a business plan.
