"please do not feed the trolls"
Being on the spectrum can be good for IT work but it sure makes for easy trolling.
"No No I think shopping on the internet is a good thing!"
"yes so do we, he was just .. oh never mind"
"2/. Respond with "Here, have an upvote/downvote.""
4/. Correctly label sarcasm as sarcasm, it helps the Americans
5/. Correctly label trolling as trolling, if helps the Americans
6/. Poke fun at the Americans but then explain you are making fun, or explain anything actually, you know why.
I was joking, it's British humour.
Thank you for f*cking my weekend, if I can ever do the same for you don't hesitate to ask, I'd be only too happy.
"Just resetting the breaker is clearly not enough in today's world."
Believe it right to the last moment, right to the second MS announce they are dropping legacy "desktop" software support or something similar.
It will happen.
One Outlook showed the problem, removing the offending updated fixed it for now.
Another machine experienced the no log on issue but I can RDP to it, that update not showing but it did do the 15 updates in the middle of nothing much. I did have to hard reset at one point.
Either that machine was hosed by the update but the update is gone now or not showing or it is another one of the updates done that day.
Either way it seems so bloody random and no Windows install is like the next, at least with Linux you can have two installs at the same level and patch with some confidence.
Gut sick of this vague muddle of a spying OS.
Doesn't even need to be particularly fine, half meter squares would be a bugger to see and navigate through, especially if they move in the down draught. Couple of layers of that with central motion/displacement detector (AKA the spider) and it would be time consuming to make something to cut and then get through the layers.
Crazy cat-lady syndrome, nice explanation of the 10 roll out.
That seems to be usual ratio, what to make of it though....
It's only 14.9% difference, take down that Schramm and put the mini nuke back in store, nobody is going to give you a hard time if it doesn't happen.
"Talktalk is like yo mamma".
Not like mine, when I called them they didn't manage to sound disappointed with every life decision I've made so far.
While fiddling with basic quad I thought to myself "can't this thing go get a pint of milk yet?". Won't be long and the idea of "going to get the shopping" will be seen as an archaic pursuit, oh sure there will be virtual malls for VR but actually taking your physical body to a retail location! lols.
We need to work on good machine "spotters" soon, forcing FPV users to enlist someone to watch for people or air traffic is reminiscent of the guy who used to walk in front of the early motor cars carying a red flag.
My basic foam plane has been chased enough times by manically excited dogs when trying to land that I figured dog walking again could be better done by a few drones and some planning. For the record rear engined foam planes do something strange to even mild mannered hounds, I think it is the motor growl, be a bit careful as they really really don't like it at some speeds. I do keep well away from people and animals but a border collie off the lead can cover a surprising amount of field in a short time when possessed by the rc madness, I discovered. I had to use hedgerows to slow the thing down so I could get to the plane before he did.
They were being sold off cheap on Ebuyer and I read the details as follows
Blah Blah, Big Brand, Blah Blah Blah, Stainless Steel, Blah, With built in Grill
All these naysayer can save you money, as they turn their noses up at junk internet features they may actually miss the main hardware on offer. It has worked fine for a few years now, never used any of its "digital" features (unless you count the door handle).
I remember reading that comment, he's obviously an agile and proactive supplier of digital death.
To save me adding another comment I wonder how much protection a USB hub would afford?
I assume it would depend on the design but who checks their layout against -220V?
the real clouds you can see are below the balloon, and your signal gets through the clouds to the balloon and on to the cloud, yes.
No you stay one the ground, and your phone too.
Well we don't as much steer the balloon as make it go up and down.
No the wind in your village should not affect reception.
@Roland6 - Interesting, might be related to an old bug, tried it on one machine got the "screen full" but was spooked enough to just delete another account without a fresh export.
The first machine was one I had previously exported to CVS three days defore, might have clicked via a second link process, but both times same browser OS etc, either way glad I'm free of it now, ones less bug to work around.
Have an upvote for quality trolling.
On a hunch I exported my details a few days ago in a .CSV format that easily imported into something else.
Post announcement I went to export again and the format had changed (php dumped into a screen full of text)
I assume this was to make it harder to jump ship or trigger a network data scrape. Please feel free to use the clipboard, it's not monitored!
Did anybody else get to compare output before and after announcement?, felt phishy to me.
People of sexual orientation N are looking to be accepted as anybody else, for their sexuality to not be the cause of discrimination and bias, to help this cultural embrace they want to avoid the use of general domain names and build a sexuality exclusive part of the "must not be filtered, censored or interfered with internet"?
Is it driven by some goverment? seriously is it trying to "out by web history"?
I'm on the wrong side of the fence and will doubtless break my downvote record but - making something we are told is normal accepted as normal, not even "remarkable" probably doesn't require chopping up the net to "them and us".
"There have been reports that it slows the device to a crawl and in the worst case leads to an unrecoverable corrupted filesystem."
Have there, some links please, or is that what they want us to believe?
My Android phone is encrypted simply because data protection, device loss and not wanting to be that bothered about if it happens. I mislaid a Blackberry once (slipped silently under a desk draw set while working on a PC) the feeling of wondering what I might have left on there over the last few months by mistake is unpleasant, what's worse is I have an almost OCD tick to check my phone keys etc. when leaving a building and often entering another so I knew it had "gone from my pocket in the last ten minutes", knowing I had enough time to reset some passwords would have been nice but it was so quick I wasn't even sure it would be locked. Yes I did call it and yes people did hear it go off but because it was "not their phone they didn't bother to do anything about the phone ringing under the desk" (people wonder how BOFH got like that).
The the first AC.
I used the words "I see that surface keyboard" referring to the image above the article (did you spot that?), I wasn't referring to "post massive write-down because they didn't sell" versions.
On the name I use, you see that is something Brits will probably understand, it's sort of self deprecating humour, saying "yes you are!" doesn't really hurt, can you see why?
In turn I'd perhaps respond to your nick but the faceless coward thing makes it difficult, unless of course....no that would be cheap.
Back in the seventies (maybe) they started making things from plastics wrapped and heat sealed around junk, I can't for the life of me remember what I first saw but the seaside and sand comes to mind.
Every time I see that surface keyboard I am reminded of the chaff they sold at seaside toy shops, lasted about an hour then the welded seam came apart to show some grey cardboard, air or fluid most recent one was a Jessops negative binder in my loft, green, edge gone, cardboard visible.
I could not bring myself to pay good money for anything that looks like it should split next week.
That's just me, in case anyone wondered, not found a feedback form that asks that yet.
Mines the one with "Everything went to pot after Bakalite" in the pocket.
On the Bonus Quiz please tell me it's E
I know they have shareholders and they need to run around screaming and back slapping each other or "the market" complains but for f*ck sake MS could do with a character who cares beyond the next few years, maybe Jobs was the answer to Apple because he had a real want for it to exist beyond his own life. I can't help thinking the alleged dog-eat-dog mentality at MS favours those who don't really care about the company just their own backs and how to step on others for the next few years and bonuses. Who in MS would die with the company name on their lips?
Nothing is for the long term, they don't seem to have much aesthetic or humanistic desire to enrich anyone but themselves, give the public something to want as a future and you might be part of it, worry about quarters and be eternally devided.
Surface F*ck Yeah!, great phrase, not sure about the last word though.
been round behind the barn recently? really sticky, smells of death and there is a large mound I don't recognise behind some trees.
I think you need to apply Peter level thinking, trim your canards and "pump it to keep it up" (they said).
Am I the only one to not give a shit about the english and be more interested in the content?
Serious stuff guys, maybe this is a "hidden encrypted" update that wasn't.
Previously I thought it was because I am a horrible, hateful, spiteful, distrusting person who won't play social games, when in reality it's just because I'm BMI <30
Hate you BTW.
Ping time to our far east offices jumped Sunday about 12:20PM and came back down at 2:10AM today.
During the high latency the timing seemed quite variable (small increments), previous breaks have seen it go up and stay there, maybe they were testing dark networking kit.
This cable always causes some confusion when reporting to managament, "what was the issue?" "SeaMeWe3", "Listen if this is about my time at Oxford I can explain those images but first can we fix the network!"
The tablet is a decent display wedged under an input method, once the IO gets upgraded to neural and eye tracking they might start selling again.
Another stupid idea(s) many have taken is the no external storage and "OTG or Charge" decision, I want a tablet I can attach one cable (or dock), have it charge, connect to USB hub and possibly a display (picture in picture even). The can't charge while OTG seems one of the stupidest "didn't think about it" engineering choices of the last few years.
Yeah I asked a pile of dog ordure some simple questions about LDAP corruption, NOTHING came up!
Bing had at least three links (OK one was for upgrade to 10) it's totally better than sh!t.
It's got indicators, could be dangerous if someone comes up behind you at 1000mph and doesn't indicate to pull out.
I still have a small sony flip phone, might dig that out but it's probably got just enough i'net to be dangerous.
The connected life - a new form of Tuorrette's has arrived where the user starts swearing at night due to a small flashing LED reflecting off the ceiling, (Work phone, allways on, is it really important, will I manage to sleep if I ignore it...)
For the love of a simple landline!
I'm sick of being rooted in the back pocket.
Glad there is only two sixes in this story or youtube would be ablaze.
Getting down with the dinos eh?
on the aerial photos shows the path they took.
@C.O.G. Brilliant, once after some news story I looked up the common causes of death to young people and was shocked to find the 'fiddlers didn't show in the top number, motorised vehicles and drownings did so it would more accurate to accuse someone of being a "pond owner and risk to children" or horrors of horror car driver!
It quickly occurred top me the people who needed to see reason were the ones who just would not in this lifetime, they would continue to bring their distorted mindset to exchanges regarding childhood risk. Next time someone says think of the children say "I do, I ride a bicycle!".
I once worked in a hotel and showed a picky American couple every room type in the three buildings, eventually they asked for a "room at the back of the hotel with a sea view" I just walked away.
(Exmoor started climbing at about 45 degrees behind the hotel, I'd have never managed to dig through to the south coast in time).
Him or his estate will have to pay to dispose of it, layers 278-4060 are reputed to contain lead.
Could you imagine some future race digging this up? Cue geologists WTF!
I've never got over the look of disgust I received in a pub on Skye for asking for some side salad with my scampi.
This thing is horrible, sorry there I've said it, (salad sneer).
Massive debt? dollar flaky? QE unsustainable? funds moving elsewhere?
Try new Finger in that pie!™
"Reply all" reminds me of the turkey sheds on a farm I used to walk through, you could make a noise to startle one end of a shed and the alert would travel away until it reached the far end then back till the closest turkey was re-alerted by it's own surprise.
Turkeys, the lot of 'em.
Requested they get more integrating into the routing side of the internet, "there is a lot of data we don't have direct eyes on so if you could get some experience there it would be greatly appreciated. Open source? LOL, anyway get the framework done and we can slot the blobs in once it is being used".
They do have to work on what is presented to them and often quickly.
Don't want to think about the speedo's but on this -
When faced with supposedly educated adults including science teachers advising you a device is of significant and immediate danger they might be tempted to isolate the "threat" while assessing the situation.
Don't get me wrong I'm not defending specific actions as portrayed by the small media window to which I have access but it's not just the police, if I walked into a room where everyone was pointing at a hologram of a fire saying fire! I'd have to check a few senses before assuming it was not a fire.
Bring the awareness and education of the public up, then, when extracting police from that pool, things might be different. If the teachers didn't get excited and if the authorities calmly assessed the situation (why didn't the teachers themselves evacuate the immediate area if they truly thought it was a bomb? do you really have to wait for big brother?).
Our fears are encouraged if they fit the compliant society ideal, as a result we may have distorted understanding of real world threats.
I considered a few of these, though stacking peas seems very Zen.
Perhaps a questionnaire would have to include
Do you use a side-plate?
Is the side-plate for chips?
Is the side-plate really bigger than the main plate?
Can you stack pees?
Are you a ponce?
I bought some crockery many years ago, bought some replacements recently and the "normal" plate size seems to have increased by around 3-6cm (diameter).
Here's a little exercise (probably banned on the comments) but we could post our "normal" plate size. Some stude' could then work out the area offered for a normal adult meal.
I try to keep using the old plates as I'm shamed by having to stack.
I had a telly for one year in the last twenty or so (it might be more like thirty but I just can't remember). the one year I got a TV (on a friends insistence) was enough to realise once "off" it going back was dangerous, my body was no longer capable of taking the input. Having been weaned off many years before coming back to the "The Wire" and all that pan and snap type shots was just too hard, it was like someone rattling a babies toy to keep my attention on every shot, enough!
I am thinking of getting a wood burner so the TV license people can give me a few seconds of warmth every two weeks, right now the letters just stack up for recycling.
If I must have adds for some content I want the adds on a part of the screen hidden from view.
I truly can't abide the animated crap, even gif looping avatars piss me off.
Kind of like the old days of scrolling around the desktop when the graphics card was incapable of the resolution, I just want it unscrolling, fixed on the content window, all that other stuff drawn around the outside OK? Browser is happy as it sent the information to my display, I'm less red faced as I can actually read the text.
Thought the snake.
