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.
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.
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.

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? ;-)
Re: I smell elections coming
i read that as electrons. all this talk of nuclear power, must have jolted something
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 ://
gotta take off first, before nuking the site from orbit
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 :)
never mind that, i would be very happy with a semi-decent 2G signal where i live, without having to hang out of the window or go to the other side of the village!
however the upside of this is i can ignore sms and phone calls with the excuse "i didnt have any signal"
ooh its a tough life :)
harking back to the original topic of "hacking", the jeff minter story is great. beginning with limitations of ye olde spectrum our hero jeff got hooked
follow the story here: http://minotaurproject.co.uk/lshistory1.php#1
i did the same thing...
...but a few years later on an amiga. changed all the planet names etc on frontier:elite2 to humorous words. also the intro credits. that was pretty cool
deksid got me into "hacking" (worked fine as long as the CRC was unchanged), which i very rarely see anymore in my professional life as a contractor. hit the hex dude!!!!! :)
best unique phone ever...
well, maybe its not unique, but it was certainly niche:
the SE P910i. brilliant phone, awesome support and if the screen hadnt broken (at the same time as being given a iphone 3GS through work) i would probably still be using it now.
tomtom satnav on it was brilliant
if my clancy knowledge is correct...
...the operation titles are randomly selected from a list of keywords. because its random, you cant deduce the matter of the operation solely by its title
/me gets back to espionage novels...with cold pint in hand!
im interested to see how much these headphones weigh. theres no mention of that particular "feature" on the Tritton webpage. if theyre too heavy, it will be like wearing a bike helmet on your head for any gaming sessions, or even watching a late night film without waking everyone else in the house...
so do i, but im out of here in 4 weeks and three days!
am i and my fellow contractors counting the hours? YES :)
