Re: Tons of foil & garlic for me.
Strange that GCHQ was designed by American architects and this by a British one.
Re: Clarify existing rules
Particularly as far as wireless transactions are concerned....
What is it with people and the start menu. I use Win7 and almost never use it. Any apps I use are either on the taskbar (frequently used ones) or less frequent ones on the desktop. Once in a blue moon ones are on the start menu.
We've just been doing a Win8 build for a tablet rollout and I haven't missed it at all (and the only Metro apps we're using in that are the camera and Reader)
What was the last version of cmd.exe you used?
Re: I'd buy one for this reason --
Micro$oft, how droll.
In US speak (and pr0n) Asian tends to mean what us in the UK would call Oriental.
And yet again...
... the government is out of touch with business.
Re: Entertainment on board
Air Sri Lanka have it on their planes.
I was quite lucky....
...despite us about to roll out over nearly 1500 tablets they run full 8.1 so I couldn't get any further than 2.1(?). Still need a mobile device strategy for them though
...I've got a 7 year old quad core Dell that I've never taken the side off. But, what does that or your comment have to do with the thread?
Also "I'm" and "CVs"
Re: Microsoft Office is in Big Doo Doo
M$ - how original
Re: Dictators always fail in the end
Ooh - M$, how original!
BBC and Twitter
I stopped following BBC World recently when they retweeted about one tweet every 5 minutes from their correspondent covering the Pistorius trial. I was not the only one who replied saying if we wanted to know about it we'd follow the actual journalist.
Re: Are they running on XP Embedded ?
Surely they could go to POSReady 2009 (based on XP Embedded) that is EOL in 2019? NCR do have experience - they supply the company I work for with it.
Re: Wrong law.
You are correct - she didn't have legal council, she could have had legal counsel though.
re subscription channel
I'd happily pay a small fee to have BBC World - at least the news on it (before BBC Breakfast) is actually news and not a dressed up promotion engine for an actor's latest film/novelist's latest book/musician's latest album.
I'm having that issue where I need things repeating - there were a couple of weeks where there were 4 simultaneous things I wanted to record at 9pm. Luckily one was repeated and 1 was available on iPlayer.
Re: Have you spotted any Bing howlers?
At least you can get the maps in OS format which can be really handy
What, no M$?
Re: The name's already taken. @jonathanb
No SAAB was always going to be squeezed, it was never an aspirational brand, so Mercedes/Audi et al had those buyers and Ford/Vauxhall etc. the non premium area.
Re: Deja Vu
SkyDrive Pro with 25Gb - or personal SkyDrive?
Re: Customer service
Nope - the worst for customer service (well, if you can find one) are all the DIY sheds,
I see 2862772 also affects IE11.
Re: Enterprise "Tiles"?
Hopefully you'd be using the Embedded Industry version on a kiosk
I've got DAB in a Seat and have 12 (I think, I only ever listen to 3 of them) presets.
What's the app you've got to switch stuff off?
It has changed since NT you know?
Anyone found the app in iTunes? (UK)
Still a lot cheaper, we use it for 25000 users (with a high turnover rate) as AD costs are absolutely prohibitive for that.
Re: Oh, and also:
Bing maps has features sorely lacking in Google - OS view for a start where you can actually work out which way a minor road goes (hint - it's in yellow) rather than having to guess in Google.
Re: Colour copies of passports illegal ?
Indeed it is - had to do some research for travel money bureaus and scanners recently http://www.hmso.gov.uk/copyright/guidance/gn_20(old%20format).htm
Re: Windows 8 TO INFINITE FAIL AND BEYOND
@AC 12:10 26/4 He has NO taste in UI - look at his website.
And if you can get hold of a copy of POSReady 2009 that is supported till 2019 and is basically XP embedded.
Re: Why bother?
@AC - and POSReady 2009 (which is based on XP Embedded) till 2019.
What worries me..
... is that people actually notice by-lines so know who she is. Downvotes ensue - I'm pre celebrity generation so don't really care about fame.
Re: Good luck
What sad person could possibly have downvoted your post?
Re: Paradox resolved
God, wish you hadn't pointed out it had a web site, what a load of absolute stylistic crap!
And people diss the Surface Pro price
When it has an i5 processor so can do real work
Maersk's own measurements
Obviously they haven't heard of baked beans, they say 3.64 billion iPads. (http://www.worldslargestship.com/)
If you haven't touched any MS stuff since XP what makes you think you are qualified to judge what it's like now? At least I've touched Firefox 18 and think it's shit.
doesn't work for me and the language pack won't download...
Re: Samsung took over the Nokia market
Nokia destroyed? 85m phones shipped worldwide in Q4 as against 43.4m Apples.
Sorry - had to feed the troll
Re: Missed the Clinton Cards announcement
There are still 2 in Taunton. From memory (can't be bothered to search) they were bougt out by American Greetings who were one of their creditors.
Re: So the IE10 'Pre-Release' for Win7 passed you guys by then ?
I've been running it since the date it became available and would never go back to 9.
Give me the down voters
OK, I'm not a power user but I've been running 2013 for a couple of months (RTM version) and I definitely prefer it to 2010. A lot cleaner looking and some bits I've been bemoaning for years (tables in Word for example) greatly improved.
Re: Family Friendly
As cigarette machines are now behind the bar, if they exist at all - and it shows when you were last in a pub, the over 16 sign doesn't tend to exist
Not outside cities methinks? I don't know anyone on it, actually I do know one person in Bristol
