re "a matter for a living representative of the Catholic church"
I'm fairly sure that's a C of I church, not an RC one.

But then he'd have nothing to complain about!
If it had hit somebody they would have the honour of being the first person ever killed by weed...
That's a rather nice idea. Have a directory called /norobots, specify that it's off-limits to crawlers in your standard robots.txt file, and have an index.php script in that directory that adds the IP address of anything that requests it to a blacklist.
I'll give it a try on one of my servers when I have time later this week.
"...the EU can protect this property"
Indeed they can.
I don't think AVG Free, or any of the other free AV offerings, are licensed to businesses. Tell your boss he could end up in hot water.
Another example of what happens when brainless marketing-bots get their grubby hands on a nice well-defined engineering term.
If he gets installed in the White House, you'd never fully get rid of him afterwards.
You mean the LG Prada's innovation?
The what? I must have missed that, anyone care to f****** elaborate?
Turn up the view distance a couple of notches (heh), you'll start straining any given CPU pretty damn quick.
Did you read that on Wikipedia by any chance?
What, you think it's any different here in the West?
Well, I'm convinced. No other reason that guy would have been listening to such an obscure song.
Not like it's the best known single from one of the biggest-selling bands of all fucking time, or anything.
"Under the new regime, spam, child-abuse imagery, and posts leaking other people's personal information are not allowed, and will be removed"
Spam, kiddy-porn and doxxing have always been against the rules over there - it's not a new announcement by Steve regarding that unholy trinity, just him re-stating the existing rules.
Usually because PHB's have seen it on other websites and want it. For no other reason than to have data to put into a daily and weekly report that they send to their PHB (who will never actually open the attachment) in a bid to justify their spot on the Org Chart.
Being a corporate web developer is slowly killing me every single day.
All that's stopping you from doing more than 15 searches is a cookie. Use a different browser, or use Private/Incognito mode, and you can search all day.
Three point turns used to be a bit more difficult before ubiquity of power steering. My upper arms were more toned then too.
They should have done it in time immemorial too - I fear the ship has well and truly sailed at this stage.
Not necessarily, Laura. Any barman serving me my stout in a dimpled tankard rather than a tulip pint glass would be in for a talking-to.
"They laughed at Galileo! They laughed at Copernicus!"
"Yes, but they also laughed at Bozo the Clown"
Would it be childish of me to titter at "cum miner Tim Worstal"?
Lions aren't all that well hung.
Chromebooks RDP-ing to a Mac server, something like that?
At this stage, would it not be easier for you to write an article when Adobe isn't going to release a patch for critical bugs?
You're assuming way too much about me there mate. Shouldn't a 1980s Coder, of all people, understand wanting to know the little ins and outs of ones hardware?
To clarify - the serial number of the chip will not change how happy or otherwise I am with my phone. I asked because I'm a geek, and therefore like knowing things about the electronics I use. That alright with you?
"Does it matter?"
Not in the slightest. I just like knowing the specs of my tech is all, plus if my Note4-owning colleague at the next desk has a different sensor we can experiment with settings and stuff to pass a bit of time during our lunch break.
"Tear-downs of the Galaxy Note 4 found similar image sensor differences"
I'm a happy Note 4 owner - if I wanted to check what image sensor I've got, is there a way to do it without cracking the thing open?
Like some kind of micro-sized turbo-output storage heater?
I'm used to people not reading the article before they comment, but how the fuck did you manage to not even read the headline?
Yes, they're definitely Embracing us.
"if the presenter was a guy and not a gal would they be getting so much sniping"
On the Register? Yes, absolutely and 100%. Equal Opportunity Slagging is one of my favourite things about this place.
Note 4 is pretty much a flagship model, that has a removable battery. Probably the last one that will unfortunately.
You're going to start driving a Volvo?
"Quick show of hands. How many El Reggers have been invited to work for free after pointing out faults and flaws in company websites?"
I'll go you one better. After declining their offer to discuss a security issue I discovered with a site's dev guys, they threatened legal action. Basically "help us fix it for free or we'll have the cops nab you for hacking".
I politely declined that little offer too.
And how would a mobo jumper or 'A "locked/unlocked" dip switch beside the sim socket' help, when the threat discussed in the article is one that requires physical access to the machine in question?
Did Paul call to all of your houses and take a shit on your cat or something?
It's unlikely to alter the taste of a smartwatch either.
It's also second rate compared to Photoshop. I use both on a daily basis - GIMP in work, because my employer is too cheap to buy Photoshop, and Photoshop at home (where lets just say price isn't such a huge consideration) - and honestly something that takes me 10 minutes in Photoshop can take upwards of an hour in GIMP.
In the Photoshop 6 era I would have said they were comparable products - not anymore though which is a shame.
Re: "a feature which would be a very successful product for a start-up"
Would there be any real barrier to MS spinning off the functionality to a stand-alone app, maybe handing it over to the community as open source? Seems like that would be a win/win for all concerned.
I can tell you, mobile reception on Cork roadsides is usually pretty dire.
Good thinking on their part though, h'on the lads!
Several miles? If you get a good arc on it, I'd say further than that. How would the Iron Dome missile defense system deal with projectiles coming in from low orbit I wonder?
The car that you sit in and drive every day is also designed and built by humans, f'crissake -- y'know, error-prone, fallible HUMANS. The other drivers you share the roads with every day, drivers who hold your life in their hands every time your car is within 20 meters of theirs.... humans, f'crissake -- y'know, error-prone, fallible HUMANS.
The only way to be safe is to stay at home in bed. And even then your house might get hit by an airplane which drops out of the sky due to an autopilot software glitch. After all, you know who programs autopilot software....
Raw Carolina Reapers have absolutely nothing on a decent extract sauce. Try some "20 Minute Burn" if you feel like putting that to the test!
"Keating appears to have kept verbatim notes – strongly indicating that a tape was running – and she's now published the transcript of the conversation"
If she has a recording, lets hear it. If it's the same as her transcript, Youtube is over a barrel.
Yes she does - a song called "Ironic" that doesn't contain a single example of irony? That's pretty damned ironic.
Don't ya think?
