Re: where's the article?
Do you mind letting us know the make/model and mobile OS running on your phone? Here's a direct link to the podcast, though you should be able to click on it in the story. http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/3/2/f/32fdf2db1e219a9b/SiT223.mp3?c_id=12432262
Re: Secure Architectures. Microsoft options and alternatives.
I see what you did there
Awww, shucks, Anonymous. We're blushing. Don't worry, we won't tell your friends how much you luuuurve us.
Wot us, structured data? Begone, robot overlord.
Re: MLF -- really, Register?
Our use of MLF predates the newer, stupider acronym. But we take your point.
Only if you're a buffalo, sir
Re: Re: We all know what happened
Good to see the debate on Brexit is once again bringing out the best in everyone. Tone it down, people.
Re: Will "delete account" delete all my posts?
Hi Larry. Jude here from The Register. The usual procedure is that your public posts will appear under the anonymous icon and username after you leave us. If you're sure you wish to delete your posts, you can delete them yourself, but you'll have to do this prior to deleting your account. There is nowhere like Reg forums though, Larry. Think about that.
Re: No, I am NOT a bot.
A bot says what?
They've even broken it down to the minutes-and-seconds where the topic begins. Are you sure you can't give it a listen?
Re: 3rd time no comments posted over the weekend... WTF Reg Team..???
We're sorry you had to wait.
Re: Re: Marvellous advice
Dear Mr Shilko,
I forwarded your comment to the author in case he wishes to amend the article. Please send corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Re: Dear moderator
Apologies - moderation is not as speedy on the weekends.
We know that there are people posting anonymously here who only post on stories about a specific vendor, and only post on them to trash the competitor. Bad form.
Declare yourselves, please.
Cheerio, et cetera. And behave,
Re: Re: What do I think?
Update: Our tech team has fixed the problem. Please drop us a line at email@example.com if you experience any more issues.
Re: What do I think?
You should be able to view now, but which browser/OS were you using when you got the #2035, OzBob?
Cash 'n' Carrion is no more, I'm afraid. This means that if you've bought anything from C 'n' C, it's basically a collectors' item. Hang onto your hats – you never know.
Hah! Turning the relativity equation around at this time in the morning?! There's a old USENET physics FAQ which might help here: http://www.desy.de/user/projects/Physics/Relativity/SR/light_mass.html
Re: “Trustworthy Computing”...or... Trusted Computing.....???
Trustworthy Computing. See Bill Gates' memo of 2002: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2002/01/17/ms_highest_priority_must/
Re: Christmas Card List
Can confirm: The Register is not on Apple's Christmas list
Don't know what to say, Snivelling.... We're in a subjunctive mood.
If any of you see this sort of thing in the wild - PLEASE take a snapshot and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org I'm suddenly hungry for a beige chocolate milkshake...
Re: Where's Dabbsy?
Dabbsy's on his holidays. You can set up an alert for any article with his byline here: https://account.theregister.co.uk/edit/alert, though I expect we'll run a SFTW this weekend.
Re: Evidence based criticism
Are you talking about m.theregister, or our app?
Re: Re: we plan to be a big part of the prosperity
DropBear, please be assured we'll be "Biting The Hand That Feeds IT" as ever. And while the former London Homoeopathic Hospital is but a 10-minute trot away from our London offices, our Laystall St team won't be looking to diluted flower essences to mend our ills... though of course we'll be happy to refer the BOFH's victims there.
Re: No worries
Oh no we didn't. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/11/23/intel_hires_qualcomms_compute_leader_to_lead_new_mobile_push/
Re: "damaging Microsoft’s reputation as a trusted consumer brand."
Horse puckey, anonymous. But I'll look into the headstone thing...
I second that emotion; don't be creepy, people. The moderatrix and moderators are watching you..
Fair point. We've edited the text to reflect this. Thanks
A "fiscal" year does not necessarily correspond with the calendar year. It is just an accounting period. Overland's financial year runs from July 1 to June 30. Its fiscal 2014 ended on June 30, 2014... Its Q1 2015, then, was over before actual "calendar 2015" even began.
If you honestly believe that reporting an outage constitutes a "bias", then you probably should get all your *cough* news *cough* from a fan site. Wow.
Re: Happy new year...
Happy new year, dear reader. The thing I like most about this kind wish is that it was posted anonymously, as if you were ashamed to be caught out being earnest and sincere. Long live our snarky commentards and I raise my coffee mug to you in particular, anonymous. May no one's keyboards be safe in 2015.
Re: ANyone else noticed...
Rest assured, we are reading through all of the comments
Re: Read your own paper...
That is correct. If you read the article carefully, I believe you'll find our blogger wrote that it "came out of stealth" one year after its inception, which is true. And, yes, the startup itself is two years old.
Don't look at us – it was a direct quote from ESA/Philae project manager Stephan Ulemac! I suspect he was attempting to simplify for the layperson.
In the mean time, it pleases us to troll everyone with 'IN THE AIR' headlines.
Re: Coveting the precious things
I was going to go for that... This is me when I remembered that "local data" has a technical meaning http://mashable.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Dr.-Who.gif
A tenner a month, sadly (£9.99, to be precise - but we know our readers never fall for that 1 penny less marketing gimmick). We've updated the article.
Re: Yes, yes, yes, very impressive
Indeed! Deeply remiss of us not to have asked Cray... http://regmedia.co.uk/2012/04/25/cry_3.jpg
Re: Trackpad cum?
It's a Latin preposition used between two nouns to show that an object has a dual nature, viz: kitchen-cum-living-room.
Re: titles are misleading
Sin- and Sino- are both prefixes meaning of or relating to China. Besides, if I used Sino, it would have fouled up my trigonometry pun.
Sorry about this. The tech team is currently working on a solution.
I like your style, Havin_it - http://reg.cx/2bz6
Re: Re: What, no whiny "Pity it runs Windows" comments?
We were just being a "paid-off" shills when we rejected 1) a comment accusing a company of legally actionable wrongdoing for which you provided no evidence 2) a comment calling someone a "pathetic pleb" and 3) random abuse hurled at people who disagree with you.
For heaven's sake, just say that you don't like the Lumia 930 and say why. I'll help you: it still doesn't have a heck of a lot of apps...
Your friendly El <del>Mod</del> Shill
