Dear software developers...
Just so you know and before you start work, there's a cat in hell's chance of me using any of your code on my linux boxes if MS's .Net libraries have been used to develop your software.
There's plenty of proper open source enterprise qualities libraries out there. Use them if you want me to use your software.
FSS. Agile? Waterfall? Fag packet? Just do what works in your organisation to get the job done.
60 million images I won't be buying or looking at

Cyanogenmod, Privacy Guard, AdAway, Firefox, Adblock Edge, Ghostery. I now have no adverts anywhere except those sites and Apps I actively want to support (El reg etc.)
I'm back in control and Advertisers can f***k themselves and their malware spewing shite.
With an old apple device you can't update because they've removed support for it in their update.*
The fix? Buy a new one.

Er. No thanks...
... carries on quite happily as I am...
His run was appalling but it wasn't his fault - he did his best with shite scripts, shite special effects and shite supporting actors
... Facebook for grown-ups.
I use both. FB for keeping in touch with "friends", G+ for keeping up with Industry & work related groups, news and comment.
There's room for both
Re: 4 pages ?!
x4 pages = x4 adverts
And they wonder why people use ad-block...
ooh. Transvision Vamp reference...
... firing up Rhythmbox...
So who to use now?
I've never had a problem with eBuyer - but never needed to use their customer service either.
I do try and use vendors who play nice so who should I be using instead then?
Re: Multi-user authentication?
Needs two people to log into your account. Simple!
updating it automatically
>>hopes to keep the OS up to date: by updating it automatically for its users
Not sure that's a good idea. Like giving out your root password to a chimp?

Views nicely but won't print an A4 sheet to scale :(

Is this same (fictitious) Skills shortage we allegedly have in the UK?
Re: Sandy Island = R'lyeh!!
my thoughts exactly
Should Microsoft merge Office into Windows?
They should drop the whole office suite and start contributing to LibreOffice ;)
Homosapians have been waving theirs hands around for over 60,000 years - and Apple are now patenting it?
Re: I love gadget queues!

I travel a lot around the back roads of Devon. Usually I don't get a mobile phone signal. So, I'm paying more for a new car with no benefit to me. Well done Brussels ⇐ knobends!
No doubt there'll be a a little wire from the battery to these things. No-one can track my whereabouts if I snip the wire.
