Re: Honestly confused
Ah AC you are the perfect citizen.
Too stupid to understand how they are shafting you even when it is spelled out.
Too gulliable to question your masters.
Re: That had me worried
Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. This is the company that fixed a broken cockpit window with duct tape.
"HBO Go, the name that is universally used in part of the world, such a Northern Europe, where HBO already goes direct"
So why does the HBO Go site say: To access HBO GO℠, you must reside within the fifty states of the United States of America.
Didn't we have one of these already? Staring a typical vacuous Holywood actor. They called it "Dude, Where's My Mac?"
Does she have a similar problem using bicycles, cars, buses, trains, boats, buildings, pavements, roads, bridges, clothes, shoes and all the other things that were designed and largely built by men?
No doubt an automated program flagged these vids. It happens on YT all the time. So why the fuss?
Oh and who are these self important people? Never heard of them.
Re: Population density
Or try sendng a text message to your other half during a match when you live across the road from a stadium.
Ah Netscape 0.9b, I have fond memories of it first on Unix at Uni and then at home on Windows with a Trumpet winsock at 14,400.
Who is this imposter?
Ellen Ripley's daughter is called Amy. Who is this imposter calling herself Amanda?
Re: Useless without the range
"5 GHz band is too weak a signal to be useful outside of the same room"
I use 5Ghz at home to avoid the congestion from other networks on 2.4Ghz. I live in a Glasgow tenement with thick stone and brick walls. The 5Ghz signal is just as useful as the 2.4Ghz signal at the other end of the flat to the router. My phone can even pick it up and use it to stream music two floors down at ground level while sat in a parked car.
Re: “Ah, but did you DEEP CLEAR your cache?”
My colleagues and I all happily continue to say "have you turned it off and on again?"
But now we say it with a fake Irish accent.
So is this going to be yet another awful US "teen" drama like Smallville or will it be worth watching?
I'm not holding my breath.

Re: face plam
Speaking of face palm... they might not know they shouldn't reply to the list but you don't know how to type and then proof read.
Which is worse?
But does he have a volcanic island lair?
I have a better solution
Don't use Facebook.
Network Access Protection
So what is the replacement tech called?
Defender is not AV. Its supposedly some kind of spyware scanner.
Try telling that to Police Scotland. They carry guns when responding to routine incidents.
You probably had the wrong model. All the basic smaller engined 500s are gutless except the TwinAir, it actually has higher bhp despite a smaller engine.
I regularly drive between Glasgow and Liverpool and have no problem with any of the hills on the M74 or M6. Admitedly I sometimes drop to third and gun it a bit but that is all that is needed and I run with ECO on.
Re: NEVER buy a Fiat
At least get it right it is...
Fix It Again Tony
Re: Small petrol is back!
Yup the TwinAir is lots of fun, more fun than a l lot of much larger engined sporty cars that I've owned in the past.
Re: ...one doubt is about stop and start
I've been driving a 500 TwinAir for the last three years, I had doubts about the StartStop system at first but it has been great. I like to be quick away from a set of lights and it is more than fast enough to keep up with me. You shoud try leaving it switched on, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Equally amazing is the number of programmers writing in house applications that don't include that functionality. I've even had one ask me why when I suggested it as an improvement for his application. He was one of those people himself and had no idea that other software did that.
Re: The Cult of the vi Eloi/Moorlock
You're quoting the QI elves around here? Dangerous my friend, very dangerous...
Re: Your shortcut gems?
Screw voice commands. Voice is the emperor's new clothes of interfaces.
I work in a room with 7 other people. Its bad enough having to listen to them talk about their stupid children and the stupid things they do all day without also having to listen to them try to talk to their computers. That's before you consider the chance of someone saying "close file" and me losing the class I'm in the middle of working on because my computer mistook the office junior's voice for mine.
Who cares? CCP's current dev team will have killed EVE with jump fatigue before their operations team could get the new servers instaled.
It's plug and pray and it has been a piss take of plug and play since long before usb flash drives were common.
Re: Does Windows 10 actuall shut down when you click shutdown?
Who are these "people" and do you have a list of their addresses? I need to round them up so they don't fuck up this version as well.
Re: existing products like Windows InTune (which can already manage PCs)
No it is InTune as in let me tune your PC so it works better. Muppet.
Re: Windows 7 with a flat theme
The W7 UI may not be broke but the AC pedant certainly is.

Re: She shells C shells on the WAN side.
She sells Bash shells on the C shore.
Better I think.
Re: "Free" if you're paying Compuserve $30 an hour?!
So nowadays you don't pay an ISP to allow you access to the Internet to get your free stock quotes and maps Michael? Just because Compuserve was more expensive than your current connection doesn't make that charge mean something different.
particularly acute for the long-suffering women of the western world?
Except it isn't because they all keep their phones in their handbags. Well all the ones I've ever met anyway.
Re: Proper clipboard support
You know you can show the extensions again with a few mouse clicks? Its the first thing I do after installing Windows.
Re: testing procedure. @Buzzword
Step away from the remote server, you aren't qualified to operate it. Perhaps the McD's fryer would be more your level?
shutdown -r -t 00 - will work to reboot every version of Windows, remote or not, and you should have known that.
Tax discs are renewed annually so surely DVLA know exactly what demand there is for renewals in specific day by day detail. Factor in some probably very accurate data about how many cars are sold in the UK each month, which DVLA should also have, and they should have a very, very accurate extimate of the demand on a day by day basis.
Or did they not think to call on the decades of experience and data the organisation already holds? Oh right its a UK gov IT project so experience, knowledge and data have to take a back seat (if you're lucky) to expensive lunches, sexting random constituents and colourful icons.
"might not even have been aware of the backups’ existence, since they are created automatically in the background on many phones"
Sounds like stupidity to me whether they were male or female. See I'm not sexist, unlike most of the so called feminists I've ever met. I am however anti-stupid.
All I see is lots of wasted space and uncomfortable seats. One of the worst working environments I've seen since Google's beanbags.
home-grown apps phone makers... were pressured by Google not to include
I wish Google would pressure Samsung to stop bundling their home grown apps. For every Google app or service there is a matching Samsung app or service. Only the Samsung version is a bigger pile of crap than the Google version. Even Amazon's app store is better than Samsung's and its pretty crap too.
Hey EU how about an investigation into why I can't remove any Google apps, Samsung apps, Twitter or Facebook from my phone? You can uninstall updates (really useful that) but you can't remove privacy and seurity violating apps that you don't want or need.
Money for old ROPE
So do ROPE headphones sound as bad as BEATS?
Re: A Difference
Google don't need to hack your phone, they already own it. (if it's Android)
What they do regularly do is install malware. New Google apps get installed by default whether you want them or not and they want permission to access everything. It is starting to really piss me off. I don't want any of the apps Google has installed without my permission but because they are Google apps you can't remove them, only remove the patches leaving you with a worse security nightmare than the one you are trying to avoid. At this pont I think there's more Google apps I don't use on my phone than ones I do use.
if anyone can take tech and make it usable and affordable
It certainly isn't Apple.
Re: I wonder if they are going to do autonomous docking some day...
IIRC SpaceX have the capability. NASA just don't trust their software yet hence the big baseball mit on the end of a broom.
Not that difficult if you know how.
Sony, which makes beautiful gadgets
Thanks for the Friday comedy article. That one will keep me laughing all day.
Sony, like Apple, makes overpriced garbage. At least Apple's products tend to be reliable though.
Cop: "Give me the PIN to your iPhone."
Another smoke and mirrors PR announcement from Apple.
A place in Glasgow used to do half cars decades ago. London catching up as usual. ;)
I love the Hopper seat. I'd buy that (well probably can't afford it but I'd like to). I was there when he proposed to his wife.
I used to use old bike pistons as ashtrays in the early 90s. Seems I was ahead of my time.
Its Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters. So good you watch it four times.
