Here's an idea Microsoft.
How about actually implementing the HTML 5 spec? Other browsers seem to have no trouble with it.
I'm sick and tired of having to look up every sodding tag to find out if it's supported in IE or not.
Callcenters already mock callers.
"We apologise for the long delay."
"Your call is very important to us."
"We're going to stop the on-hold music, so that you think we're going to answer, but all we're really going to do is subject you to another automated message."
Here's an idea...
Why don't we use this space to make posts after the article, to actually discuss the issues raised in said article?
Just a thought.
There's a reason some of those spaces are white.
And a reason I don't want devices sitting in the 1420.40575177 MHz band.
We'd like to consult you on the best way to look after these chickens...
Re: Never mind the nuke angle, there are more important questions:
Changes in the pulsar are like a chameleon
They come and go... They come and go
Everyone off the bus!
I want all the shiny people over here, and all the matte people over there, ok!
I represent mean angry pizza-eating coding people, alright!
As long as there are no dead pixels, we can get on with writing software!
A pilot scheme will be be tested on bumpkins
I for one am against the government testing this BT on poor defenceless bumpkins.
Re: If the silicon acted as a catalyst
Then the little nano spheres would give off both hydrogen *and* oxygen.
I'll leave figuring out why this is a bad thing as an exercise for the reader.
Time to redirect Port 22 to a terminal that only plays Zork
You are standing in a field west of a white house.
There is a mail box here.
Big companies banding together to shaft their workers.
Who said big businesses can't get along?
Re: silicon nanospheres sound a whole lot more transportable than lithium ion batteries.
And less likely to explode, burn, or leave nasty contaminants behind.
What is it with Americans hating naked people?
Their priorities are totally screwed!
Re: Fuel Cells
What is it that you don't get about easily transported, safely stored hydrogen?
Would you rather fill your laptop up with a pressurised hydrogen gas tank?
Re: I got confused by the URL
Oh that's priceless!
Re: Islamic hackers
There ain't no stupid quite like religious stupid.
Whatever happened to...
Using genetic algorithms to design better, faster and more efficient chips?
Re: Is it just me......
I was surprised that Aperture Science didn't have their logo up there...
So how many of these would I need
To power a fricken laser?
It makes sense to tax the rich
After all, they are the ones with the money.
Re: Bubble universes
I don't know about you. But I like to go outside once in a while. You know, go to the pub, listen to a few live bands, talk to my friends and find out what they are listening to.
It's called socialising, and you can find out more at your local watering hole.
Re: how much our personal tax could be cut
If we taxed them properly, then you could probably cut the tax rate of the poorest amongst us to 0%
Re: Breaking Laws And Contracts
You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs.
Once medical records are in the cloud
There's no way to get them out again. And there's no way to prevent scope creep.
Because you can bet that some bureaucrat somewhere will think to themselves, "We've got a lot of data here on every man, woman and child in the UK. I wonder who we can sell it to."
BT Lying Again?
Write an article when BT tell the truth about something.
That will be news!
Humbug used to be a grossly offensive word.
Re: Hyper violent "Worms"
Send in an exploding sheep.
Guns don’t kill people.
I'm sure they make the job a lot easier though.
It leaves the definition of "grossly offensive" up to police officers (and judges)
So if the investigating officer is in a bad mood or an idiot, you're screwed.
(Please don't take offence at "you're screwed", it was meant in the nicest possible way.)
Re: How about aiming for/looking for some kind of life forms?
That's what they *are* doing!
Ok, so who do all my base belong to now?
When the government can't track down an individual twitter user
You can bet that we'll be moving to IPv6 pretty sharpish.
Re: I don't recognise actresses in the cinema, but...
On closer inspection. No. Definitely not.
Re: I don't recognise actresses in the cinema, but...
While it looks quite like her, I don't think it is. Probably just some random redhead.
Steampunk is back again?
Awesome. Brass cogs for everyone!
Screw Electronic Cocaine
From observing my co-workers, it's more like electronic pot.
This reminds me of that time that Sony snuck a rootkit onto my machine
And no one was arrested.
Re: What happens when they get struck by micro-meteorites?
I guess they would coat the vulnerable parts in that new self healing ballistic gel.
Once I've bought the hardware. It's mine, and I'll run whatever I like on it.
Likewise, once I've bought the software, it's mine to use any way I feel like.
Re: Isn't this why the "Read Me" file was invented.
Well yeah. But some people really need a large sign in a 90 point font to actually pay attention to something.
The printed approach should get everyone that doesn't need a frickin neon sign to get their attention.
Re: Can't make sense of this article
It doesn't have to be dense. It just has to be gravitationally bound.
Don't like BTs service?
Stop paying them. They'll get the message.
Re: I'm overweight as it is.
Depends how dense it is I guess.
I ride that particular section of railway.
I honestly think that Bigjigs could do a better job than London Midland.
(tbh, a zoo full of drunken monkeys could probably do a better job than London Midland.)
