Please leave my beloved Riverbed alone ://
Re: I've ordered a 5C
Just buy a nexus 4 direct from Google for 200 quid and be go shopping for your sim free contract.
I have managed to gouge orange for unlimited (truly) data, unlimited SMS and 100 mins (I use less than 5 mins a month) for 5 quid plus vat. Makes sense to me! :-)
Re: It is impossible to have a billion dollars without that fact in some way helping others.
You just summed up the stock market very clearly and succinctly. Have a beer on me :-)
Re: That which brings the highest happiness...
Reward for killing all the harekrishna's in one swipe, IIRC. top job :-) :-) :-)
I think I'm alone...
In that I actually like and prefer my Z10 to android and the old iphone.
LED torch is useful :)
Re: This article is a stub.
Such as signing up for the RegCast™?
however, the best thing to happen to DAB was Radio 5 Live :)
Re: I need to juggle lots of email accounts.
the BB10 hub is excellent. i got a Z10 as a corporate trial and have been using it heavily since launch date. just like the article says, management of different message types and accounts is very very good.
it has totally replaced my personal android device which was running 4.1
the phone may have been "free" to me, but it doesnt stop me recommending it to all my friends as a really good device. the camera is pretty good too, excellent pictures from the polo festival this weekend :)
Re: ...to 11 storeys...
London is mostly built on earlier bits of London, and clay. Unlike New York, where it is rock underneath. So build something too high/heavy and it will sink.
Re: No - Kill The XBOX ONE with FIRE - don't reward DRM + Spying
I "commuted"* 400 miles to cornwall for my first contract. that might as well have been another country (lovely in summer, miserable and wet in winter). spent a very enjoyable 2 years there :)
Beer, because its summer and I wish i was back there surfing or swimming in the sea...
A better way...
I think the best way to mark sponsored/advert tweets would be to begin the tweet with the following:
"This is a sponsored tweet from *company name* about "product name*.
How many characters left for the "important message"?
We knew you were trouble when you walked in...
C&P link into youtube, its worth it. just make sure your speakers are turned up loud!!
Re: Anyone else thought of Vaultec?
Give me a powerfist and i'll be a happy wandered :)
job done :)
Lester, you took THE James Cameron to the rocky outcrop, or just a happy name coincidence.
I would like to believe you took the director of Aliens out there :)
we recently advertised for a mid-level avaya voip lead and got only 8 respondents. you could say thats an advantage to recruiting in the flatlands of the UK. however we are yet to find out how shallow the voip talent pool is in this locale...
upvoted purely for rocketjumping and quad damage comments. Now if you had managed to get the grapple in there too that would have been a full house :)
Re: I reckon the other source had it spot on
That's so good, and accurate, I have just printed it out and stuck it on the kitchen wall as a reminder to the ever expanding mass of PHB's I have the (mis)fortune of working with/for/alongside
Made my day :)
Yes but...you have to agree in the UK the average Labour voter is a communist bastard in disguise.
Re: Nice piece
take a wild guess?
Re: The G Bomb!
calm down dear :)
Re: Waze ? for what ?
your feedback loop comment is exactly how my tomtom satnav (825 GO) works with its onboard SIM card. its a neat feature but here in east anglia theres not a huge choice of routes i can take to avoid any problems.
you can say that again (ios bugs). several of my 3750 stacks are reporting millions of deformed packets per day even tho theyre totally clean.
Re: We wish you a merry...
Well, an asset stripping company has bought shares and wants a place on the board so now is the time to start drawing lots on which arm of the company will be sold off next - and how many months until we see the end of Quantim as we know it...
i already have an ID card. not one of the government types admittedly. but it does get me into such interesting places are government facilities and prisons*
*and perhaps most importantly, allows me to leave!
how large were the images and were they thin or thick provisioned. these factors are an important metric in deciding is this is genuine speed, or just another massively favourable sales pitch.
because fining a public funded resource will REALLY make the problem go away.
Re: Fond memories!
me too :)
when i saw the screengrab, my first though was "thats the amiga workbench". nice, utilitarian (as already mentioned) GUI.
all you need is a wheelybin :)
A better title
would have been "The Ternimeter" imo
(works best in a mock south african accent)
me too. lucky for me, it arrived just as i was heading out the door last friday morning so had the pleasure of showing it off to my workmates (all infrastructure geeks too). then utilised the friday night hotel wifi to browse/fondle/nerd out
i like it, sygic satnav on it is very good btw. download all maps locally.
awesome game! reading this nostalgia piece, i can hear the music in my head. i spent FAR too many hours playing this game on my friend's SNES
guile stage music is up there with any other composition imo :)

Re: 2001 obelisk
when do they get to the beating with bones part?
in regard to the whole gTLD "choose your own" auction (now fiasco)
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHY????
they can put one or two in my village if they like.
Re: An excerpt of the stolen code
at a guess, because its the source code build files (not a coder, excuse my terminology) in the screenshot and not the actual line by line code itself.
regardless, according to the article its ESX which is based on *shhh dont tell anyone* redhat linux.
ESXi is the significantly better and more recent hypervisor from vmware which pretty much eliminates all the attack vectors exposed in the previous ESX/redhat OS.
everyone has upgraded their infrastructure to ESXi by now, havent they? ;-)
neither did my zipstick
Re: I smell elections coming
i read that as electrons. all this talk of nuclear power, must have jolted something
mmm plants. so lots of DX11 tessellation eyecandy then :)
how about reviewing some blackout curtains and rails/boxes? now summer is (almost) upon us, waking up at 5am isnt all its cracked up to be!
i was in italy recently and the place i stayed at had the most impressive blackout curtains ive ever seen. im really crap if i dont get a good nights sleep ://
i quite like nescafe alta rica
too much effort arsing about with "real" coffee, especially at work or home :)
gotta take off first, before nuking the site from orbit
well, the sequel to cloverfield is due this year and we all know how that started, dont we
i spent a couple of years working away (living on expenses, natch) and came back to find i could barely fit into the seat of my weekend toy car. so dont make the seats wider, make the drivers more healthy.
too fat to drive? you're donald ducked then :)
stuxnet, back for revenge!*
*or payback, depending on your particular moral stance
good point, exactly how fast would a 3G wankel rotary 'phone be?!
the p910i is one of the best smartphones ever. i used mine for about 6 years until it finally broke (my fault).
killer app was tomtom and the active car cradle. :)
reading your comment made my brain go crosseyed! :)
