Re: The Bible? Which one?
DOS was modeled on CP/M not Unix.
I have no idea where you got that sort of notion from. What part of DOS shares any Unix philosophy?
Re: the "fun" part about systemd
How did management calculate that electricity cost them more than the lost man hours and additional wear and tear to the servers?
I think you missus has another issue with her ipad air. ios run seamlessly on the ipad air.
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.
I've not used an ISP's DNS server for some time so I didn't even notice tbh.
"been tugged away"
We're quoting from someone who's illiterate.
Surely they meant "tucked."
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: Missing a trick
It's a PC. It will run Windows.
Crosses Turkey off the holiday list.
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.
Re: Kettle, met pot, pot meet kettle
If you wanted your implementation to be used you'd use the apache or bsd licence and not the gpl3.
God you guys are boring.
You'll get used to the new icons in no time.
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
There are plenty of simple to install storage OS's that aren't windows server.
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.
question being, what sort of bank would use a chinese made mini computer given all we've heard about hardware backdoors?
Re: Pwn n00bs
Unless this person was on a Windows 2000 box then I guess you've never heard of Windows file protection?
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: given the UK's average broadband speed
This is a British website. The hint is the TLD.
Re: No ISO?
What you mean the same Apple who made mountain lion only accessible through the Apple store?
They set the precedent, Microsoft are just copying it.
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: They're both right.
You are joking about Java right?
Re: So True...
My Dell account manager is in Scotland. Almost as bad. :)
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.
Re: Lipstick on a pig...
It's hilarious you think your 100 workstations mean anything.
Re: We are not doing anything illegal or immoral
What does religion have to do with morality?
"only sell 4m a year"
Surely that's not including the OEM market?
Re: Microsoft Lock In
Looks like someone doesn't understand the GPL.
If I'm just using it for the occasional call and text I can charge my iPhone 5 on thursday night and be ok through to Sunday night.
You prob' wouldn't want to risk it though.
The reason i got the iphone 5 and not the s3 is that the s3 was too large.
Re: A rare victory for common sense
Captia and common sense in the same sentence. Don't think I've ever heard that one before.
Re: Most are Android here.
The source is available for android. Corps can lock down Android as they wish.
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.
Re: An End to Corruption
How can an organization with no structure be corrupt?
Anyone else wonder if they might have got away with it for longer if they where called z9 agregator?
What isn't working for you in Win 7 that you suggest they fix? I'm genuinely interested.
All this talk reminds me about one of Asimov's short stories about entropy.
Keys on the end of a lever. Sounds a bit like keys on a music keyboard.
What blows my mind is what aliens think when they crack it open and look at the basic technology.
I wouldn't be surprised if they are shocked we managed to get it in to space at all.
You realise Islam in a minority religion in India right?
If you want to follow Ireland sterling lead please be my guest.
Said the man in the AA rated country to the man in the AAA rated country.
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.
if you're on ubuntu 11.10 you're not using gnome 3, I know you said you're a noob but at least try and make sure you bash the right product.
Maybe if we vent warp core plasma in to it's path it will ionize it giving us a higher resolution.....
Awesome. US says they'll use military force against cyber threats, we say we'll nuke the buggers. Go UK.
"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.
