UK's CASH POINTS to MISS Windows XP withdrawal date

HipposRule

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.

Psssst. Don't tell the Bride, but BBC Three is about to be jilted

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.

Microsoft's Windows 8.1 secrets REVEALED ... sort of

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.

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.

I use it for maps quite often as it has an Ordnance Survey overlay so you can not only see footpaths but also work out which route a road actually takes in the country rather which is impossible on country roads on Google.
