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.
Because it was too like Facebook in look and feel. Why was that a bad thing? Because the suits and executives in its target companies thought "What? They want us to pay for this? But it's just like Facebook, and Facebook is free! We want a private Facebook, that's as free as Facebook - why is that a problem?!"

The Clovis people no doubt had unmistakable evidence that the gomphothere in question posessed weapons of mass destruction.
I seriously want one of those canoes
That is all.

Did the Chinese government actually get their hands on the info, or were these three nabbed before they could exchange the data?
I have a cat, and wouldn't be a bit bothered if one of my neighbours installed this. In fact, I might give it a go myself - furry little bastard ruined my last lawn re-seeding.
Re: Fat dogs with huge jaws should also work
Fat dogs with huge jaws might prevent the cat crap issue, but what does one do about the fat dog crap?
Web Developer Toolbar for Firefox. Mostly redundant now with all the built-in dev tools in the major browsers, but ten years ago it was a godsend.
Not a lot - same as there's not a lot stopping someone from emptying your tank of petrol with a siphon, but thet's still a bit of a rare occurence.

And with a bit of trial and error, and possible a few extra jumpers, you could make it read out anything you liked (within the constraints of either two or three letters, depending on the readout of course).

There's an interesting backstory to why they're installed in the first place.

They'll be missing a trick if they don't call it Teddy Fuxpin.

Not if one wants to turn a profit on them apparently.
Re: What's the problem?
King Of Foo never said "People are stupid". He said that there are stupid people, which is pretty much indisputable - but never generalised as to numbers or percentages. Given that he also went on to say that he considers himself stupid, I fail to see what relevance today's XKCD (the moral of which is, don't say "People are stupid" if what you really mean is "I am smart") comic has here.
Not *all* of them.....
Oh come on, those corners aren't nearly round enough.
In his defence, it could be argued that "giving out" !== "running out".
Although why he imagines a new URL automatically requires a new IP address in the first place is anybody's guess.
Best of luck Nick
Enjoy your stay in Ireland ;)
> the past and present activities of the IRA and related groups
...gives the UK government the right to blanket-intercept all data coming from Ireland? Come off it.
The provos did what they did without using the Internet at all.
"Among the cables specifically identified in one document as currently being intercepted or “on cover” are an Irish connection"
Nothing about that in the media over here yet. Surprising, there's nothing like a bit of "Look what the Brits are up to now!!" to shift papers.
Re: Athlon XP 2400 PC
Had an almost identically-specced machine ten years ago, except for an XP2500+ CPU. Did you have to bridge several tiny points on the chip with conductive paint on the 2400 to overclock it? That's my most abiding memory of those chips...
Slap 'em with a small fine
US$119.6 million sounds about right to me.
Removable battery and SD slot
Good to see.
Wonder if there will be any after-market high capacity batteries available for it? A lot of people, myself included, don't give a flying fuck about how thin a phone is if it can go a week between charges.

That's odd, all I can see is "hunter2" on my screen.

UK covers Scotland and Wales already, so you're just left with a U and an I.
Unless you want to go Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and England... SWINE!!!

They did, but Apple have paid Cisco for the right to use it. Fun fact, Cisco also came up with the name "iPhone" first.
WPA2 crackable with rainbow tables?
I thought WPA2 incorporated the network SSID into its encryption key to prevent rainbow tables being a viable means of cracking?
Just as well we're talking about their webmail UI then I suppose.
Re: Isn't Beats Audio just a funky way of saying...
Or you could quote Albert Camus, which is who the Manics were quoting in that song.
Re: Nothing new here...
Nah, even a script kiddie might recognize 127.0.0.1 as a loopback address. Significently fewer people are aware that any address starting with 127 does exactly the same thing.
There's no place like 127.0.0.0/32
Their laptops are pretty solid for business use. Their desktops, less solid - power supply failures are a regular thing. Maybe if more people paid them a fiver to change the power settings then their PSUs would last longer?

Isn't LOHAN going to be free to swivel around the Flying Truss pole though? Might have trouble keeping the springy copper feeds you speak of on the target patches of copper tape.
"I was a believer in Nessie even before this "
Yeah, somehow that does not come as a massive surprise to me.
Re: Sorry looking Gameboy?
Those without a background in lab work (and/or those with too much background in beer-drinking) should note that IPA in this context does NOT stand for India Pale Ale.
Re: No Bar!!
I grew up in rural Ireland. The village consisted of 6 houses and 3 pubs.
Sadly, that ratio was skewed by the building boom of the early '00s. There's now 12 houses and 3 pubs - still no shop or church.

It never ceases to amaze me how well the "chuck every possible size and shape of device at the wall and see what sticks" approach has worked for them.
Re: Cert issue on CDN?
Sounds plausible, especially seeing as we're in the midst of a mass-certificate-renewing frenzy following heartbleed.
Re: GPS as an option?
True, it runs a noddy flashy bug fest of a PC OS instead.
I have a 2GB Bigfoot lying around somewhere. The damned things are as close to indestructible as HDDs can be.
Given my age and the last time I used that drive, I reckon it's probably mostly low-resolution JPG porn on there. A nice present for future archaeologists?
I'll say this for you chaps -
You know how to build the suspense.
Re: Lets clone it. @MrDamage
Probably best to shit on the neighbour's cat instead.
