Re: I'm three terrorists at least!
Thing is the tax on the tobacco probably pays for the cost of both.
It is definitely dodgy. They should have dealt with it whilst he was in the country (They had the opportunity).
Sex by surprise is a stupid concept.
Re: Go for it
The Solaris SMF is the best it doesn't really have any downsides. (And you don't have to use it.)
Re: Go for it
Another part of it is the fact that nobody else is contributing large amounts of manpower to the desktop other than Redhat. When there was SuSE and Sun as well it wasn't so bad.
He is almost single handedly responsible for me being back on Windows. (The fact that Alsa can never get ice1712 correct for more than one -rc of alsa-driver at a time is another part).
Freebsd or OSS4 is perfect for my card.
I have one old Thinkpad that still has Linux but most of it was built from source (No Alsa / Pulseaudio / systemd / avahi - XiG X (r200) / OSS4 / pkg-src).
I have a pretty powerful Netbsd VPS and I just use that.
Does stuff like that not happen all the time in different industries regardless of gender ? (Like say Football Managers the ones with more experience cost more).
Take for example a team promoting the manager of the reserve team instead of recruiting a celebrity one.
Is that not reasonably the norm.
The Nexus Player is that finally something using the new really good Atom ?
Re: Clara must go
Yep they should have got rid and had that mechanic as the next companion for a bit.
Linux is bad for everybody the way it currently is.
Lennard Pottering is the main problem.
The whole UNIX design meant after a bit of learning everything was obvious.
Everything he introduces is totally different to anything else and then forced as a dependency by everyone else. (And breaks everything Redhat has no interest in).
The BSD's and Debian are ok for a server. But all the gui stuff contains so many linux features which end up having to copied by the BSD's (Which had a clean understandable consistent design up until not too long ago).
Solaris 11 (When it was Opensolaris) was good as a desktop but £3000 a year for security updates for a normal user is not practical.
Funnily enough modern versions of Powershell are brilliant / consistent and logical after a small amount of learning. Just like Linux / UNIX used to be
Re: A question
Do they do anything to stop Virtualbox just recording a video of the whole session ? (Forward usb for webcam or whatever to it).
Or one of those game capture devices.
Nothing they can really do about it.
Re: Oracle are most definitely evil
Unless this ruling means (AT&T or whoever) decide that they want the same from anybody using C.
Re: A USA Inc marketing ploy?
The funnier side is the Chinese doing exactly the same as the USA did to Britain a few centuries ago.
Re: What ... you mean your notebook doesn't have a 4K screen?
Even that is not that good for normal use. Sucks the premium that 1920x1200 costs. (Or other 16:10).
It should be seen as an asset. Like other things are when it comes to divorce sold and the proceeds added before the women gets the best deal anyway.
Re: Oh please...
Pulseaudio and avahi are garbage as well.
He singlehandedly is the reason I won't have a Linux Desktop any more.
Re: I Do Care
Not a Panasonic Toughpad.
Yeah but I wouldn't notice an outrageously beautiful gorilla or whatever.
Romance shouldn't feature in it at all. (Same way I am not attracted to members of other species).
Coleman was best when she was actually a Dalek.
Re: Dear reader
Clement Attlee's first term was when most of the best choices by any Prime Minister in recent history were made. (And anyway he was responsible for any of that stuff during the War as well).
Have a look at what he did.
Re: testing procedure.
It does if you do it from the option that is in the menu obtained by win key + x (Always does a full shutdown).
Re: But will it make a difference?
Saville would have probably signed it.
It would be really funny if come 2016 Nokia starts releasing Android phones.
Got your NUDE SELFIES in the cloud? Anybody else wants them? You are stupid.
I don't see why people want games like this.
RPG Elements in any other type of game ruin it completely. (Instead of the player getting better the game just makes it easier.)
Even more so Online. (Everyone should start out the same).
I wonder why ?
I hope it is because of how awful they are to deal with.
(And how it is the company policy to waste as much of the customers time as possible by the way the systems are designed).
Before they do any of the messing around only they seem to need to do they should check the price.
The sales tactics are incredibly obnoxious.
They once refused to sell me something they had advertised on the window for a set price took about half an hour messing about and said the price had changed right at the end. (I just walked out and paid £20 more from Carphone Warehouse about 20m away and spent only 5 mins doing so).
Does it mean pure as in software like a Nexus ? (But a decent Motorola Baseband and associated call quality).
My main problem with Android is Google Play Services and its ability to take a device that was perfect and totally screw it up. (Like a machine that had XP when it first came out and worked flawlessly until Microsoft started screwing it up).
Re: "I literally think about him every day."
Jobs never cared about perfection.
He cared about deliberately being incompatible with everything else.
Being quite easy to use. (itunes is hardly logical it is a mess).
I used to think it was just the Windows port of itunes that instead of working properly with parts of Windows that already did better what they wanted they reimplemented loads of stuff (Certainly not perfectly though). Its not that good on a Mac either which really surprised me.
Even its primary function is not perfect. (Compare to Foobar 2000).
Re: An example to follow
Problem is that criteria means apps designed to be used with as little timewasting as possible by somebody who has learnt how to use it are not allowed.
But worthless apps that look right and waste enough time in the process are allowed.
I would take the really old one by choice.
(And the old algorithms that seemed to give me what I wanted far more often.)
I want the most useful content not the closest to me or most recent.
The old one with pages from the UK - the age stuff down the side - all white was totally fine by me.
Re: Economists solving the problems the last one caused
This article is nonsense. Rent Control is the way forward and the only answer.
There is no reason for a house to cost more than the materials used to make it / cost of the land / cost of building it.
(And I say this as someone who will probably get 0.5 million £ due to it that I don't need in the next 20-30 years).
What these people want is a system where if you are born poor you die poor and there is nothing you can do about it which is absolutely wrong.
Re: Real coding!
ZFS + CIFS/NFSv4 should be good enough. (i.e Nexenta and they do support it).
Does it remind anybody else of Sega's "Blast Processing" ?
An ipad with a Horipad (That hopefully should arrive in the next few days for me) should be totally fine. (There is enough paid games that support it that are worth having).
Touch is fine for certain things like Xcom or Ace Attorney.
Advertising is not acceptable. Same with pay to win.
(I would be quite happy to pay £30 for the iOS Tales of Phantasia supporting a controller but just the normal version).
Re: In other news ...
It is more puzzling than that though. Something costing £400 is available to anybody in the UK who wants one. (But yet treated like it is owning a Ferrari.)
Re: @Titus Recognise the voice? @AC
Not true. Look at how the separatists have been portrayed in Ukraine
(Even though to start with they were doing exactly the same stuff as the ones they called freedom fighters did).
This is the same police who covered for Jimmy Saville for all that time. (Including going to his home weekly).
The Met switched from getting bribes from the mob to getting them from News International.
RE : dan1980
A worrying amount of those ordinary people seem to buy his papers.
The scousers are the only ones with any integrity in that matter.
I just envisage loads of hipsters getting burnt alive on top of Apples mountains of cash. (Like that part of the Dark Knight but a bigger pile of cash obviously so more hipsters can fit).
Re: What is Hachette contributing?
Amazon is on my side for the most part. (Almost everyone else is on the side of anybody but the customer which is a breath of fresh air).
Re: I'd love one, but
I will get one if the gen2 is about that price in the near future.
Re: I, personally, am not surprised
Google is awful when it comes to power management. (Putting the stuff from Latitude into Google Play Services has made what was a 4/5 day battery life into about a day and a bit.)
They use the same sort of update mechanisms as malware as well.
Re: N64 variant of "Gauntlet Legends"
The Dreamcast version of that is the good one.
Re: Anon Cluetard Time for an encryption chip
But if the police do it then it is fine. (See the lack of evidence West Yorkshire Police has about Saville).
I thought whoever took the photo had the copyright, If you don't want to risk this don't let people do it in the first place.
The government seems to want everything to be dealt with like a business so this sort of thing is similar to liquidation of assets.
They keep saying they cannot do anything with copyright but they obviously can if they can do stuff like this.
I still don't understand why they do it. (With predictive text it is more effort than writing properly). Is it so they spend 1p instead of 2p ?
Re: "and deserves to live his life freely."
It is strange how the BBC have completely changed their tune from when they first went into East Germany.
I have an Android tablet that is impossible to stop Google from breaking. (Via the stuff that used to be in latitude that they added to Google Play Services which they force update all the time). Before Play Services 4 it had a reasonable 5 or so day battery life now its lucky to last one and a half unless I downgrade Play Services before leaving the house.
My Lumia 800 Still works great. (Very pleased to not have stuff I don't want running in the background all the time so I get a decent battery life). Great call quality and a virtual keyboard that works well when drunk.
I did like the Windows 8 mail client when I could use gmail via Activesync with it. (Not so much any more but at least it is not as bad as Google's awful web interface they keep on messing with. I did used to think it was fine). Activesync does just work.
The Windows (Once called Metro) Ecosystem is rubbish though. (Unless it includes VDI and RemoteFX).
Pensions / NHS / Housing Benefit are the only ones that matter.
Rent control (Like even America has) could do more in terms of saving money than anything else they could do but they are stupid about it.
(Everything else is a drop in the ocean compared to those three).
The PS4 is cheap and nasty. (So is the last revision of the PS3 - The one before was quite good). It is more than an AMD PC in the same form factor but with Double the CPU Clock / Twice as many Streams in the GPU / SSD / Double the RAM.
Xperia's have rubbish software. (And manufacturing defects Sony refuses to fix that anybody else would have in the same situation - They also lie about software updates(If you promise to do something you should do it period)).
They don't play well well with others (Everything is proprietary).
The one interesting thing they were doing they axed. (It was a modern TV that wasn't a downgrade from a CRT in the ways all of other LCD/Plasma's are).
I liked SDDS but there was never a home version.
The TV's they use that awful glossy coating that only looks good with no light whatsoever in the room.
(Add to it the rootkit thing / removing OtherOS (And in doing so getting hacked immediately which was a great thing)).
Sony is basically a Western company now.
(Panasonic at least for their decent stuff isn't which is why all my stuff is from them and it is always perfect).
Re: Another tax on the stupid...
All the money comes from what they term as whales. (It is a pitifully small percentage).
Re: Lack of options?
Think the greenmangaming trade in thing only works with their capsule client. (And seen as they have disabled my account before and couldn't explain what they had done or fix it then there is no way I trust that).
