Growth being XP Mode on new Windows 7 roll-outs?
20 fps? bit of a pwnfest then:)
Just need to spot the UPATRE downloader then?
How's this helping them?
On both sides of the fence.
Unless you're an American in certain states where sending people to their death via electrocution or injection of lethal chemicals is not at all considered barbaric and uncivilised.
It's at this point that I might quote Voltaire.
Re: now that's how you 'take a fall'
Thank you voice of reason.
Re: They have damaged their own brand
Exactly, I just uninstalled Candy Crush
If it's so good at tracking, can't they create a mesh network between planes and have the ones at in proximity to airports, hoover up bandwidth from cell towers to share with other aircraft?
That would sort out the latency problem, no? And do away with the need to bounce it all off satellites.
I find myself agreeing with the boss of Aria, UNLESS the claims are true (and if true, the guy needs to apologise profusely as his response is bordering on arrogant).
Either way, one should always know better than to buy a refurnished or 'clean pull' hard drive.
Best not to scrimp on these things.
Quite like Chrome Remote Desktop myself
VPN + RDP is also good, although IPSEC VPN cross-platform is a bit of a PITA
Re: Obligatory XKCD link
But surely two-factor authentication?
If not, why are you still with that bank???
Looking at the ophcrack rainbow tables, you now need 13 characters (from all of the 4 groups) to be secure from any Tom, Dick and Harry :(
Presumably various intelligence agencies have larger still rainbow tables, so passwords are probably a waste of time unless you can remember passwords comprised of all 4 character groups and at least 15 characters in length.
Can anyone confirm whether pass phrases (ie concatenations of dictionary words) are harder to crack?
Such as: XKCD
EDIT: I looked up ^ and saw this has been discussed.
There needs to be a better way.
I just bought an HTC 8X from Expansys purely because it was the only well-known retailer selling one.
It arrived 4 days later. Anyone know if you can change the back cover? (it's yellow)
You mean hopefully the registrar for me.uk doesn't exhibit the same weakness.
Maybe the Reg should have a FinXP countdown timer in the masthead :)
Re: Its a mess on Intel "et al's" own making...
I daresay a computer from 2003 (advent of SATA interface), coupled to a nice new SSD, would be powerful enough for most people.
The HDD bottleneck has finally gone, which to my mind, was the one remaining piece of the puzzle.
Re: Ofcom , 118 , 192 ... I can handle all that crap. Just ban NON geographic numbers. PLEASE.
I'm sure Neelis Kroes et al are working on those NGNs for you.
Most GOV departments have implemented 03 numbers, which are included.
If you own an 0845 number, you can claim the equivalent 0345 number for free IIRC
Just need to wait for Zotac to put Haswell in their Zbox. Much better value.
<edit> They already have. ID91, ID92, IQ01 (Plus models come with memory and storage)
Erm, I think the obesity problem is less to do with what we eat and more to to with the fact that we don't get anywhere near the amount of exercise that we need. This of course also contributes to many other health problems on top of obesity.
No iSCSI, which is available on competing products.
Still ReadyNAS for me ATM
So just HOW many Bitcoins have BoA mined? (and how much are they now worth?)
Re: They release alpha software and charge a fortune for the privilege of you testing it.
If it was also wireless, couldn't it be auto-meshing with its neighbours?
I think it would be missing a trick without that. A true auto-meshing darknet that was incapable of being turned off would surely be the biggest guarantee of privacy?
Re: End of XP
You could always give pokki a look too
Don't get me wrong, this isn't a platform jibe, but try running a linux program from 1999 on a modern linux.
Windows has long tried to maintain backwards compatibility and that's testament to how accessible a system it is, however, that needed to change because a new security model was desperately needed.
I glad Microsoft are canning XP and I'm pissed at Google for saying they'll continue to support it via Chrome after April 2014. Everyone in the industry should take the opportunity to slam the door on the insecurities of that platform.
However, just because Windows had to change and therefore backwards compatibility isn't as viable an option as it once was, doesn't mean Windows 7/8 is a bad idea.
Not the first time some poor turkey has been probed by a hole in Java
'Nooo, ANYTHING but BT!'
That's a phrase I'm far too familiar with. It's almost a daily utterance, usually followed by some extreme expletives.
Let's hope she's better at distributing water, or some parts of the UK will see a drought for the next decade.
For anyone that hasn't, I recommend CryptoPrevent on all your relatives PC's
Is Cocaine available on a mirrored blade?
Better be quick before d-germans get here
What about laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat'ncy?
Erm, have you ever seen the House of 'Commons' in session? Microsoft may run a private enterprise, the House of 'Commons' (allegedly) runs a country and they behave exactly as you describe.
May I be the first to say I hope he takes them to the cleaners
So, growing a top bollock to compensate for the former leader's missing item?
Re: Very unfortunate...
Particularly considering recreational usage of cannabis is currently legal in Colorado!
(stealing and carrying dangerous weapons may be another matter)
How fortunate for you that you have one of the few Apple products that you can change the battery in.
How about turbines in rainwater downpipes?
Basically they're paying up so they're not forced to reveal how shockingly bad their system was during this time.
I suspect it was all down to a schoolboy error, which if revealed through a legal process would be far too damaging to Sony, so they'd rather cough up than face the consequences.
£250,000 is probably a right bargain to keep the details under wraps.
Those were the days, Carmack was and shall always remain a god to me...or should I say Makron? :)
Re: Far too dangerous... Encrypted mesh networks...
Never mind that shit, what about all that Vodafone lost revenue???!!!????!
So Sony's USP is now that they're NOT Microsoft bwuahahahaha, I smell fear.
(but they still want to copy the success of Live)
I don't want a console anyway, I want an Occulus Rift and a Virtuix Omni instead :)
Says Jajah Voice is being discontinued on the 31st of August?
Fallen out already?
Presumably you can use any SIP provider Trevor?
It would appear the MiKandi CDN is down :(

Not to burst your bubble, but no-one gives a fuck.

Unless you're using $ky as your broadband provider as well.
Re: What about a fixed version of 8?
Hehe, calm down penguinistas, Secure Boot is a good idea.
Re: What about a fixed version of 8?
Erm, Refresh and Reset? Secure Boot? Windows-To-Go? ELAM?
I never mentioned compatibility, but that's always a problem with a refresh cycle :)
But carry on ranting...
