Re: I've said this quite a few times on here
It's the one that doesn't know how to spell shill.
Re: big blue E
"Big Blue" is already taken.
Re: "on a mobile device"
Addresses are translated by the flash controller, this is transparent to the OS. AIUI you'd need to reflash the firmware or replace the controller chip to gain access to the raw storage, although it's possible that there's an "engineering mode" the manufacturers aren't telling us about.
Re: ring and get us put back on the open register
Why would they bother when they already have your details?
Re: You can hardly expect them to use their own phones.
It wouldn't be hard to automate a system whereby the office calls the recipient shortly before the driver arrives, and could improve the efficiency of the service considerably, especially if the recipient could choose at that time to have a delivery left somewhere, or returned to the depot for collection or redelivery.
As you have to be running Chrome to use the feature (at least until Mozilla release their version) it's a bit late to try to block its installation.
Re: why do they list the crippled Truecrypt 7.2 version
Because that's the latest official and unadulterated version. It's also totally atypical, as anyone familiar with the circumstances will, I am sure, agree.
Re: the Camel is ill suited
It's done rather well in Australia, I hear.
Re: Earth has them too ... "sailing stones"
Except the sailing stones slide across very flat ground, while the Martian rock has clearly tumbled down a slope.
Re: But why The random Capitalization?
Because German speakers (writers) do that?
Re: must go home first and get a bunch of CD
No need - I have a few here, in the case of my CD Walkman.
Re: I would be very surprised if they cut different metal
Swapping the camshaft for a torquier one won't take much retooling.
Re: I suppose I will be dragging next time
I doubt it's heavy enough to be much of a tow car.
Re: the design chaps did do the maths
Including the loading on those bearings?
Re: how was this accomplished
Websites got more hits from XP users. Quite possibly some of the users had just heard about XP going EOL and had fired up their machines to order a nice new (old stock) Surface Pro, which some sites are knocking out at half the launch price.
Re: If it can fool > 30% of developers, I'll definitely sit up and take note.
Are you including VB devs in that?
Re: here's a much more capable device
No Ethernet, 3.3V only, so in at least two respects it's somewhat less capable.
Re: smaller size of electronics means smaller satellites
Except smaller semiconductor fabrication leads to increased sensitivity to radiation, requiring more shielding.
I think you may be misinterpreting what he wrote - everyone mostly makes that "leap of faith" that the software they use, whether open or closed source, and attributed to known or unknown sources, isn't maliciously intentioned.
Re: Symantec WILL NOT SELL TO END USERS.
Fortunately there's GnuPG, which states "Current versions of PGP are interoperable with GnuPG and other OpenPGP-compliant systems."
Re: uninstall everything that I didn't want
Does it let you uninstall Windows? Because that's what I'd want.
Re: You meant systemd there, not systems.
Perhaps you should have hit "Send corrections" rather than "Post your comment" ...
Re: peruse the freetard's favourite encyclopaedia
While you should consult a French/English dictionary, which would reveal that "rein" means kidney.
My usual response to that sort of thing is "Fuck0ffV1sa/Yah00/wh0ever", which is not only memorable but also heartfelt.
Re: been too busy...
There's now a little "password update" link at the top of the My eBay page which leads to a short blurb which in turn links to info.ebayinc.com - the first "Update: Wednesday, May 21, 2014" on that page is a press release, which probably explains why users first found out about this sorry state in the papers. Granted it may have been the best way to get maximum coverage quickly, as many users may not go online every day, but it does look like eBay cares more about PR than actual customers.
Re: heaps of suits are doing network diagrams
Who said anything about network diagrams? Visio does a whole load of organisational and business process diagrams, project management and other stuff too, you know?
Notifying the user that he has a problem isn't really "powerless", is it? Because the user can then try to remove the malware, which leaves him better off than when he didn't know he had a problem.
Re: the 500L MPV is a mockery of the 1950s 500
Rather like the "new" Mini. Possibly more useful than the original, but a lot less fun.
Re: a challenge from the SORKS
That would be "a challenge from the SOUKS".
That's a "The Book of Mormon" (by the South Park guys) reference, apparently.
I wonder how much influence publicity, about their attempts to bully other game developers, has had.
Re: Wales is still pretty small
Yes, but not tiny - Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino are tiny.
Re: So be proud
Slightly odd that the land of Lego apparently approves of a site that carries so much Playmobil content. Why call Denmark "tiny" when it's twice the area and population of Wales?
"Film" is so last century.
Is it not?
Re: not something a user can do anything about
Users can check whether any server they have an account on has been vulnerable, and change their passwords in case they've been compromised.
Re: It isn't doing the latter, so get over it.
That's odd, because I just installed it and it calls itself
Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP (KB2964358)
which looks rather like support for Windows XP to me.
In fact if you look at the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary they still seem to be supporting Internet Explorer 6, and we know how much they like that.
The molten metal doesn't chase the wax out
The mould is heated in an oven to melt the wax out before casting.
Re: Open Source is where seasoned professionals made their early mistakes...
It's usually people with commercial closed-source interests who like to spread the lie that open source doesn't have good professional developers.
Re: A problem that could have been fixed
I'm familiar with tar, but "man -k feathers" returns no results.
Re: So truth is stranger than fiction.
ISTR a sci-fi novel in which power from a parallel universe was tapped by special antennae, so truth really isn't stranger than fiction in this case.
Re: What the hell are they doing?
So far Apple has been happy to restrict its anti-competitive legal action mostly to Samsung - maybe this is a cunning plan to align multiple manufacturers / resellers in a concerted attack against iThings.
Re: these forums seem to truncate
It's still there, it just doesn't display - triple-clicking selects the full line including the bit that's run off the edge.
Re: already doing this many years ago
Using a liquid lens, yes, but not not as a method for casting optical resin into a solid lens.
Re: why do you identify with them
Usually because they earn a living based on people using MSFT products, or have a pile of MSFT shares.
Re: it gives them time to engineer out those obvious mistakes
Unless you're holding it wrong.
Magnesium wire run behind the motor
Re: Please tell me why she is pulling the grinder toward herself
Because it's an angle grinder, not a circular saw.
