Re: Minor bump

Yes, with multiple tabs open in chrome/safari it's a frequent occurrence for the page to have to reload when returning to the tab.

Very annoying if for instance you're filling in a form on one tab and checking data for the form in another only to come back and find the page refreshed and the form blank.

Re: Doesnt look like equality to me.

In any serious "sporting" event that would clearly lead to disqualification so that's a load of hogwash.

Re: Where have you been Murphy?!

>but I seem to remember May 8th was Victory in Europe day. Perhaps you might want to understand >exactly who was responsible for the lions share of that victory.

We're well aware of who won victory in Europe. It was the Russians. What is your point?

Re: worried?

No one I know has used cheques for years. Does anyone even get a cheque book with their account anymore? If you'd been talking about the USA maybe.

I think you're a little misguided with your assertions as towards the UK though.

I guess you've never used opensuse then?

I'm prompted for my wallet password way too much. It's almost become a reflex to type it in and the elevation dialog box does not give you enough information to make a valid decision.

Speaking in Tech: $65 JUST for internet and my ISP has the BALLS to throttle a service?

jbuk1

I should imagine it's going to be something like BT fibre in the UK which is in-fact fibre to the green box on your road and the VHDSL from there to your house.

Not exactly the same as the standard DSL we're used to but still a bit of a cheek to call it a fibre connection.

Re: I keep looking at these NAS devices

If you're backing up 50GB a day for 10 users you are doing it wrong. Ever heard of incremental backups?

A "normal" company of 10 people is not producing 50GB of new content in a day.

I have 1200 users and they aren't producing that. My total backup pool is just over 12TB and that includes system states of all my servers and not just user data, etc.

Re: No nukes!

Everyone seems to forget that if we had enough renewable energy infrastructure to replace nuclear that it would itself destroy the climate by changing weather patterns, wind directions, sea currents, etc.

Bringing on an ice age is not greener then using nuclear.

Re: Something fishy

TCP will keep trying to retransmit if it detects an error in transmission. Malformed packets would not be stored anywhere but would cause a continual loop of malformed data flowing both ways.

Re: Linux & mac trojans ...

Seems as most of the data malware is after is stored under your user context it hardly needs root to steal your data.

This would have done the job quite nicely on Linux.

Shuttleworth: Why Windows 8 made us ditch GPL Linux loader

Re: But

That's hardly apples for apples.

When you say Linux I presume you mean the entire eco-system compared to when you say Microsoft and you actually just mean Windows vulns.

Finding bugs is also a positive side effect of open source software, not a negative.

How Apple won the West (and lost the world)

jbuk1
FAIL

Guess what, I'm still using a monochrome nokia 1110.

The standby time is measured in weeks, it texts, it makes phone calls and I've never yet once found myself out and about and realising that I was missing something an iPhone would have given me.

I'm just chuffed at the end of a long night that I can still call a cab while all the iphones around me have died from being fondled all night.

The most important feature for me on a phone is still the ability to make a call.

Apple was OK to fire man for private Facebook comments

"someone could have copied and pasted" therefore it's public.

Hearsay anyone? Burden of proof that he posted the comment? etc etc. Someone could always repeat something I said down the pub it doesn't not make it hearsay.
