make me LOL for real, haven't heard that since school
Why would you allow social networking sites?
"Almost two-thirds (63 per cent) of sys administrators fear that workers share too much personal information through social networking websites, according to a poll by IT security firm Sophos."
So why do they not block them?
"Although one third of organisations still reckon timewasting on social networking sites is the greater issue with sites such as Twitter and Facebook, malware and data leakage were also cited as concerns by many firms."
This shows that the sysadmins would have the backing from the management for a block
Sea? You mean that blue thing at least 30 miles away?
Knight Templar = medieval Paypal
I like the comparison
Most online maps are crap for anything but roads
I've yet to see an online map that's non OS or a scanned old map that shows disused railways or contour lines, two of the things I use maps for. Don't get me wrong, I like Google maps, but mainly for the aerial photos and the other functionality rather than the maps themselves. I can't see any lorry driver's GPS data adding the things like these to the maps.
Around the early days of Google maps Multimap used to use proper OS maps and after Google proved how clunky the navigation was it was its only redeaming feature
Its not lost data
Just burn another one!
I was intrigued by peoples reports or fast render speed so I thought I would give it a look. However I can't see any difference between it and IE7. Most of the time when pages are slow its the download not the browser speed.
Plus I had forgotten how much better ClearType makes everything look in IE7, without it FF looks like something from the 20th Century. (someone will now tell me you can use it as an Add-on, well whats the point of that?)
For the first time when reading a reg article
I just can't bring myself to care
Glad they still exist
Used to listen to pirate rage/jungle stations when I lived near London, now I don't seem to be able to pick any up (oop north)
I was actually wondering about them last night, I'm suprised internet radio hasn't killed them off, although you can't listen to it in your car very well.
@ David Cornes - eCheques
The card you have registered with Paypal has expired. the same thing happened to me, there doesn't seem to be anything to say you will be paying by eCheque, which is annoying. As they also have your bank details I don't really see why it is necessary, but there you go.
Put it on Flickr
then you can annoy a whole load of other people too
made cheese and bacon roll come out my nose
@ Robert Grant
Yeah if you make the exchange rate $=£ you can get an OK house in the UK for the price they paid. But I hardly think a three bed semi in a suburb of Nottingham qualifies you as 'rich'
Doesn't having your phone buried with you contravene WEEE?
I'm not sure they were referring to full screen mode, more that ability in IE to fit all the toolbars in one row in IE6 something you can't do in IE7 or Firefox
works well, especially if you are female and asian
re: re: good
Presumably, while speeding up indexing does't nessaraily bring direct benefits to the end user, the time/processor power/money freed up can be used to do other things, like optimising the search.

I'll come round with CD, that'll save your ISP some bandwidth
While agreeing that a Tesco clubcard isn't the same as phorm, you CAN opt out of any Phorm style thing by not using the interweb....
If you want a card on your birthday...
...there's no point in putting a fake date.
Bunnies and kittens
kinda reminds me of that thing that did the rounds a while ago where you had decide whether a pic was of an upper or lower cleavage
Did no-one read the article?
In many towns in the Netherlands thay have removed the destinction between the road and pavement, and also removed other traffic controls such as lights. The idea is that EVERYONE has to be more careful. While its not a good idea to encourage your kids to play in the middle of the street (as opposed to roadway) its also just as much their space, as the driver's
I can't beleive
that Harry Stottle is the only one who has picked up on the completely illogical argument that the politicians were making. The only biometrics that would have made the loss of data inconsequential would be a lock on who could read the CDs.
If biometric data on the population was taken, and was included on the CDs it would either be more useful or unusable to protential crims (depending on whether it was reverse engineerable), but it would not have stopped them reading the rest of the data, addresses, bank details etc.
Looks like the advert optimising script is working, the comments page has the IBM advert with the guy pedalling a bike/generator (for me anyway)
He said not blame his films, or video games
but maybe it was because he was blessed with the name of Pekka?
How do you get scammed by so much?
If I was buying something as expensive as some people seem to get ripped of by, I would definatly be doing more research and probably going to pick it up myself?
I'm another one of those that has 200ish positive transaction under my belt, both selling and buying. (books, Lego (yeah me too!) model railway stuff, even low value jewellery stuff) One thing got lost in the post (it was delivered to my work PO box and the tracking showed it as being signed for by the person that collects the mail, but I never got it. Not the sellers fault)
I've bought from Germany, never had a problem getting them to deliver to me, but they don't like PayPal and IBANs are stupidly expensive from the UK so I usually just send cash (yes real Deutchmark/Euro notes!). It always worked out OK.
@ Glenn Gilbert re IE7 text size
IE7 does have the same text resize function as IE6 as well as the Zoom. Its in View>Text size rather than on the mouse shortcut. I actually find the zoom quite handy for veiwing pictures. (yes, I know other browsers have zoom....)
To take the piss out of spelling errors
you need to be able to type/spell yourself
Not just cheaper parking
but a (one way) valet service included!
Wot he sed
Summed up nicely
We too have a slow spam provider (or our filter are working quite well) However the only two of these I have seen have contained only random text without trying to sell anything.
Surely he was looking after the company's interests
Bigging up his own company while putting down the opposition surely is in the interest of his shareholders even if it is illegal
So how will a 110V server be more useful on the desk?
Maybe in the US, but this is a .co.uk site....
people recycling from skips can only be a good thing. not only does your waste get reused, you get more space to fill.
