Re: Forget Shipments..
Exactly! If one company is shipping more, but another company is making more cash, it's a perfect metric to spot which of the two is flogging overpriced products!
Ah, good old El Reg
Whatever about the headlines, it's the URLs that are the real stars of the show.
The reality is that they do...and that they are.
Not Fukushima Fallout then? I'll be over here waiting for the hippy sites to publish corrections.
Re: Man's infinite ignorance
Who said they believe it to be the tiniest?
Re: Lucky break
They're no doubt fuelled by jumbo breakfast rolls from the Centra next door though, not much will get past them.
Re: We have needed some balance...and of course some facts.
Indeed. Do let us know when they arrive.
If you don't mind extra bulk, check out a ZeroLemon battery for your Note 2. It's essentially three Note 2 batteries stuck together giving ~9000mAh of power - easily enough for three days use, and I've been able to stretch that out to five with light usage.
Re: This'll never work
Tell me you're joking. Please, please tell me you don't actually think menstruation or lack thereof is in any way influenced by lunar gravity.
Don't you mean Fort Meade?

What do diminutive gypsies have to do with this?
Murphys - owned by Heinekin these days.
Beamish is better anyway. But also owned by Heinekin.
Re: please, nobody say GIMP
Re: Or it would have if I'd let it...
I haven't used their Reader or Acrobat software in years, and Flash is installed but under tight controls.
I can't entirely cut out Adobe though, until credible alternatives to Photoshop, Lightroom and Illustrator come along (please, nobody say GIMP).
Re: "...cannot be legitmately described as a 'frying' pan"
Why not? What do you call your frying pan when it's hanging on the wall of your kitchen (at a temperature far below what is neccessary for frying)?
Re: Will you make up your mind.
The three biggest lies in computing...
Macs don't get viruses
Linux never gets hacked
Windows is user-friendly
Re: User Interface
Confusing PowerShell with CMD?
Re: sign of the times
I believe that may, in fact, have been the joke.
I think I speak for a lot of Irish people when I quietly mutter "Uh-oh..."
Surely it's Lindsay who should be waiting outside El Reg Towers, wearing an SPB T-shirt?
Re: I'm Sad
And apparently my DILDO was just a bit too much for LOHAN ;)
Re: and if all else fails
Heavy ez good. Heavy ez reliable. If et does not work, you cen always heet heem with et.
Re: The conspiracy becomes clear...
Not that I know of. Whether he was actually as anti-MS as he seemed, or was just stirring the pot for shits and giggles, I do not know - but nothing of value was lost by his banning in any event.
Re: The conspiracy becomes clear...
So Eadon was a representative of Best Korea? It would explain a lot.
OK folks, any theories as to WinPho's popularity there?
Or black. Black as the coffee that fuels many a shed project.
Re: Why not somewhere else in Yurope?
Or hire a boat and launch it from International waters!
Payday is Thursday night for me
Hope there's one of the pint glasses left by then!
What metadata though?
Store enough "metadata" and you don't need to store the URLs.
Re: Ads as Articles
Re: Andrew Orlowski
I agree - he's writing from a position he fully and passionately believes in. Regardless of agreeing or disagreeing, that makes most of his stuff entertaining to read.
Re: This article's about the minority
"You can even make a prime time TV series about how nerdy and unsocial they are"
Ah, you're referring to Graham Linehan's "The IT Crowd"?
. Imagine if you were to try and make a TV show about how catholic priests were all misogynistic drunken perverts."
Funny that, as we're speaking of Graham Linehan...
Irish coffee needs to be served in a glass and topped with cream - otherwise you've just got coffee with whiskey in it.
I'm of the opinion that Irish Coffee is a great way to ruin three perfectly fine liquids in one go though,
Re: Explosives factory
Launch a seperate kickstarter for it if funds would be an issue - I'd chuck a few quid at that too. An actual, honest-to-goodness El Reg SPB Explosives Factory!
Plus once LOHAN has soared skywards, I have no doubt you'll be doing some other shenannigans involving rocketry. Would be a handy certification to have.
Standing by for Kickstarter
I can't contribute gear, knowledge or anything else technical, but I can damn well chuck you a few quid and be hapy to help.
Re: One inconvenient design flaw...
From the article - "The cover attaches magnetically and folds up to protect the screen, or back to enable tablet use without detaching it completely."
Re: heard similar please before
Not a huge problems at gigs I go to see. People don't tend to use a €500 tablet to record the gig from a mosh pit.
Not for long anyway.
I know you haven't requested an acronym for the wooden testing rig, but in the spirit of Lindsay-related terms thus far...
Automobile Roof Rack Enhanced Simulation Tester
Channel 4 did not fecking invent feck. It's massively common in Ireland, and have three guesses where the guy who wrote and created Father Ted is from...?
A lot of people seem to have the mistaken idea that its only purpose is to convert into a there-and-then sale.
No pipes in evidence either though - the project is doomed.
a black female lesbian
As opposed to a black male lesbian?
Never heard about the BBC bio before - is it worth a watch?
Digital Impact Limitation for Deciduous Obstacles
items that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual, or religious intolerance
So that's pretty much every gangsta rap album ever then. Assuming they're banned from eBay too?
Re: In the end...
He gets strange ones as well as proper sick ones. He told me there was one guy who was arrested for possession of child porn, and when they went through his hard drives they also found several hundred photos of him fucking chickens. As in, prepared chickens from a supermarket or butcher, not live ones.
Re: In the end...
I know a guy who has that exact job - he's a Detective who specialises in digital forensics and such.
Not a job I envy, I'll tell you that. They have mandatory councilling sessions and so on every six months or so, but according to him most cops only last two or three years in that department tops. Less if they have kids of their own. He's able to handle it (no kids, no plans to have any) but he reckons he'll request a transfer soon enough anyway - it's gotten to a stage where people get suspicious of anyone who stays in the job.
Re: Anyone considering buying a Toshiba drive would do well to review their warranty...
Had a 6-month old Tosh drive replaced under warranty earlier this year.
Re: Skipping versions?
Could that provide an effective workaround for this issue? Introduce a 2008R2 DC to the 2003 network, then upgrade/replace the 2003 DC to 2012R2?
Re: " were perfectly comfortable with the televisions they currently use"
Absolutely. If 4k takes off, I'll probably pick up a second hand one in 4 or 5 years time for buttons.
Got a 4 year old 50" Panasonic 1080p telly last year for €300 for example. Apart from having a rather chunky bezel, it's great.

Without Sysadmins to keep the servers humming and the tubes flowing, I wouldn't have a job.
