I'm not sure it counts as brute force
When it takes less than a minute. Maybe it could be described as "delicate force"
The modern way of using computers is "consumption", not coding. Thou shalt not dare do anything but consume.
All that the guide itself has to say for Earth is "Harmless" (later updated to "Mostly Harmless")
Doesn't this also forget that trademark rights are limited to particular fields?
I.e. Microsoft don't own a trademark on "Windows", they own a trademark on "Windows" in the field of operating systems (and possibly some other fields, I'm not going to go and chase up their registrations)
Whereas this centralised clearing house seems to grant a trademark holder in one field the ability (possibly) to prevent a legitimate trademark owner for the same name in a different field from registering their domains.
What are the blue dots? Anyone know?
Gaius Hammond, who noted: "Unfortunately my camera lens isn't wide enough to include the other half."
What does Gaius's missus have to do with this?
Solent seems to have moved
Last I checked, it was a little closer to Portsmouth than Plymouth
Who edited this?
"following a ruling that it infringed a key design patent - D’889" - no, the ruling in June was that there was a strong *liklihood* that it would be found, by a Jury, to infringe that patent.
It was the fact that a jury has now *not* found it to be so that leads to the ban being lifted.
Who edited this?
The 3 sentences:
The Encriyoko Trojan uses components written in Go, a compiled language developed by the search giant. It first emerged from the Chocolate Factory in 2009. Once installed on a Microsoft Windows PC, the Trojan attempts
Make it sound like the *trojan* was authored by Google.
"The eight countries where the iPhone 5 will go on sale first are: the US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore"
I'm sure there's a special way of counting that makes that work, but I'm not sure what it is...
Because all developers are equal
"It also seems odd that Microsoft puts so much energy into IDE design rather than, for example, implementing more of C++11 in Visual C++." - yes, because I want someone who's good at IDE design to be implementing complex, close to the metal C++ features.
Not all developers (or designers, etc) are good at the same range of tasks.
Re: Am I missing something?
Agreed - it's almost as if they forgot what the topic was, because up at the top they were talking of "offloading code generation, garbage collection and runtimes" - no mention of graphics at all.
I'm not sure what you're doing there - but you've got excess ingredients for your bacon buttie. The bread should be moistened purely by the meat juices - butter has no place here.
No fair switching the units!
You could at least report that they won £0bn, like the other figures.
Wow. Just wow. I sincerely hope the guys who are running these experiments are reading the el reg comments section. Because you guys are *bound* to be the first ones to think "hmm. maybe there will need to be some serious thought put into this system failing safe".
I've got some bad news for you
If the "currency" you have was printed by a laser printer and normal toner...
The real juice
So far as I can see, the best part of B&Ns response is where they point out that one of the patents ('233) was essentially rejected in another form, because of prior art ('552 Cassorla patent), but they failed to bring that prior art to the Patent Offices attention whilst working to get '233 approved.
I don't know what banks are like in the states
But most banks in the UK don't have a sign up informing you of how much money is currently available for robbery. Do they have interactive screens above each teller, so you can pick which one to target?
"Intel was very clear that there are no flaws in the Sandy Bridge chip designs themselves"
Surely they should only be able to say that there are no known flaws. If they've actually proved that there are no flaws in the design, I'm seriously impressed.
Do you lack the ability to distinguish the tense?
"... recently said it believes syndicated BBC material should go solely through ..." would indicate an aim for the future, whereas your comment "... goes via Virgin Media's VoD service, which was, when I had it ..." is talking about your experiences in the past. The two do not overlap.
I just tried www.netscape.com
And I can't find anywhere to download Netscape Navigator...
It has asked companies that produce copyrighted material to contribute to a consultation
Is it planning to ask consumers too, or are we going to have the usual one-sided consultation process?
3 out of 8
People who've commented seem unable to follow a simple story which a) States that there'll be a rare shower on the 1st September, and b) States that an annual shower will be worth watching on Sunday.
How difficult is it?
Re: huh? trojan thats not a trojan.
Um, you might want to go and check your definitions.
A trojan is a program that enters your system under the guise of a non-malicious program. (You know, as in the Trojan horse, whence it gets its name).
The fact that many trojans set up backdoors, etc, is a by-the-by.
Exception vectors in RAM
I'm by no means an expert on embedded systems/flash, but I'd imagine that the vectors are in RAM so that the system can react to interrupts and the like *whilst* it's flashing the flash memory.
