Adding insult to injury
Remember: you're not charged to receive magic number reminders.
Bring the rope, kid, we've got a salesman to deal with.
You did expect an apology?
Re: The tank used for the illustration ...
I was thinking at first it was an ISU-152, but you're right, the cannon doesn't seem to be that big, must be an ISU-122
There's something similar in France, through the website "Mémoires des Hommes". Notably, there's an online database listing the 1.3 millions who died during WW1 with a scan of the official document giving the name, the unit, the moment and the cause of the death.
It made a long time I hadn't that song stuck into my head.... thanks guys :nuke:
In MS universe, is 'Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit' codename for Firefox or Chrome?
Did Mr. Lewis see that?
Discussions must be interesting among El Reg's editors :^^
Re: It's sweet
" it's 60 minutes of call and 60 text messages" - Are you sure? I think it's 2 hours and unlimited SMS and MMS for 2 € / month, and for free if you have already a DSL subscription.
Also, with the regular package, I believe the degradation comes after 3 GB, not 2.
So a news headline takes 7 days to cross the channel... the channel must implement RFC 2549 I presume
Isn't it a little big for a suppository?
NoFX said it already
Never trust a hippy.
Security and Wi-fi?
Moon under surveillance
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.
I'm watching it with Erik Satie in musical background... hypnotic Indeed.
Did any feminist threaten to kill you or rape you? If so you should refer to the police.
If you just don't like their arguments, then you just have to don't listen to them.
Twitter is full of hate speech
For fascists, racists, homophobes, sexists, twitter is a haven.
That's the main reason why I closed my account.
"Well, isn't that special?”
It's weird how sex would be a societal problem, when violence is not.
Boobs = evil, but murders and bloodbaths displayed in TV shows or news everyday are OK... talk about nonsense!
IE development team renamed as the "Woops! department"
Very interesting indeed
- Porn industry is very reactive and is able to adapt its business model much faster than the other media industries
- It's better not to do this business in the US.
Re: And remember...a GOO-GIRL isn't just for Christmas...
Oh... buggar. I can resist everything except temptation.
Wi-fi users could watch porn? So shocking!
Why couldn't they surf on news websites instead, where they could see people killed, children dying of hunger or dismembered women in some war...
It's weird how some societies are intolerant for everything related to sex, a natural activity required to perpetuate the species, and very tolerant for everything related to violence. Seeing boobies would be more disturbing that watching a body eviscerated by shrapnels...
Well done guys. I hope the developers will get a bonus for Christmas.
"research over the last decade has identified nicotine's carcinogenic potential in animal models and cell culture. Nicotine has been noted to directly cause cancer through a number of different mechanisms such as the activation of MAP Kinases. Indirectly, nicotine increases cholinergic signalling (and adrenergic signalling in the case of colon cancer), thereby impeding apoptosis (programmed cell death), promoting tumor growth, and activating growth factors and cellular mitogenic factors such as 5-LOX, and EGF. Nicotine also promotes cancer growth by stimulating angiogenesis and neovascularization.In one study, nicotine administered to mice with tumors caused increases in tumor size (twofold increase), metastasis (nine-fold increase), and tumor recurrence (threefold increase).N-Nitrosonornicotine (NNN), classified by the IARC as a Group 1 carcinogen, is produced endogenously from nitrite in saliva and nicotine."
Your baby was killed years ago...
... by all the marketing/spam/business crowd who transformed a network made to exchange knowledge in a virtual mall for oil snake vendors and pickpockets.
Individuals can't do this.
Only the NSA is allowed to do so.
'Privacy may be an anomaly'"
Before, you were watching TV. Now it's the opposite, TV is watching you.
Re: The 'Credit-Monitoring' Service scam...
" I can't understand why banking pirates aren't in jail"
There are two kinds of lawyers, those who know the law and those who know the judge. I would guess banks lawyers belong to the second category.
Re: British Intelligence?
"military intelligence" is.
With friend like UK, who needs enemy?
Adding insult to injury
The behavior of MS towards its clients is close to harassment. We bought Office licenses and CALs, after that and for weeks I had calls and mails from MS asking me to declare every stuff we have in IT, including Linux or Mac workstations! If I wanted to comply, it would have taken me days to complete their requests. As if I had so much time to lose to fulfill their NSA-like inquiries, when we are clean regarding licenses...
I never saw a provider putting such a pressure on its customers. The consequence is now I'm seriously thinking about the ways to get rid of MS when possible. Well done MS, not respecting your customers is such a brilliant move, if you want to go out the business.
Using LibreOffice instead of Office 2003 is probably viable
Two problems with that: compatibility with existing documents (LO makes a terrible job at reading MS Office documents, 2003 or 2007), and having to rewrite every excel macros existing in the organization.
I have to try A 'VB to Python' converter, see if they are efficient, it could help to solve the second point.
"I liked VB6"
... and then all credibility vanishes
Apple, Yahoo, Google, Twtter and al. lied, lie and will lie again.
"Transparency club" my arse.
There's already a NSA trojan in the EU
and its name is UK.
"Every time Britain had to decide between Europe and the open sea, it is always the open sea that we shall choose" - Hard to make it clearer...
PSLV C25 (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle), not PLSV C25...
Google collaborates with the NSA for years and now Schmidt plays the outraged guy... He may be a good businessman, but for being a good actor he has still much progress to make, beginning with credibility.
"Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority"
I tried twitter during some times but was so disgusted by the flood of racism, xenophobia and other hate speeches I leaved the service with relief. Why would I try another 'social' network, to face another time the mediocrity of most of Earth's inhabitants? Screw you people, let me live alone in my cave and choose by myself who I want to speak with.
Everything within Apple, nothing outside Apple, nothing against Apple.
Hardware, the part of the computer you can slap :)
Re: Apple a place for good "good what"
Yeah, these women and children working 60 hours a week paid $1.5/hour, packed in crowded dorms at night, frequent victims of work accidents and so despaired there are many suicides should be so grateful to the great capitalistic system that enables them not to starve. Hail to economics, when giving somebody just enough not to starve is seen as the ultimate progress, as long as we westerners can enjoy iThingsTM we pay 5 times the cost of production, making Apple the richest company in the process.

Sometimes I wonder if El Reg wasn't bought by The Sun or the Daily Mail...
I thought at first the second picture was about a new zeppelin model...
