MAC address for the WLAN. They're unique.
Re: This could be a smart move...
"BBM's major attraction was that it was reasonably secure. Why then plug it into the NSA-tapped cesspool which is Microsoft?"
They plugged it into Android, which is far worse if you ask me.
Re: Not in the UK store either
It's here, just restricted to who can download it. Those picked will be allowed to download it from the store. Anyone else trying to will just get a message saying they don't have permission.
Re: Next major revision should be the PiMaster...
Don't forget the Master Compact, Turbo, 512, ET and the Domesday machine.
Re: Ungrateful trolls
"Yes, of course Dr Mallard."
Next will be the B+128 then the Master, which will have more goodies and be a little quicker.
Is it me or Apple going back to the old days? Some of their older budget Macs had soldered memory and in some cases they underclocked the processor so it didn't cut into sales of the model above it. Wonder if they'll start doing that too...
And there was much rejoicing.
Re: Nope, Sorry!

"Robert Llewellyn, whose only qualification for the task appears to be his time as Kryton on Red Dwarf, was one judge for example."
Kryten is the correct spelling.
Re: Bear in Woods etc.
They made monitors too... In fact they made a cool 20inch monitor that could happily fit the innards of an old G3 iMac in.
Merry BOFH Day.
Re: No boom today
It won't just go boom... it will go BOOM.
Security by obscurity?
The name of the blob..
Is Krang, as I remember correctly. :)
Technically you can upgrade whenever you like... you just have to pay through the nose if you aren't due for an upgrade, to the tune of whatever is left on the contract.
Re: Oh FFS
And even then in the 300 volumes of addendums.
Am I the only one that misread it as "trolls" and not "tolls"?
Re: IR version
Nah he'd just erase them instead.
Generally, anti-clockwise symbolises going backwards, so if according to them, they are starting from the dot....they are taking backwards steps in innovation etc?
I would have thought that would be first-party... since it was originally published by Acorn's software department, Acornsoft.
You want to go with Opera? It's based on Chrome these days.
Re: So what's different?
Bookmarking with the star has always dumped it into the 'recently bookmarked' submenu. Not really useful when you expect it to appear in the actual main bookmark menu. You have to do it the old fashioned way for that.
Installing that brilliant addon also lets you remove the stupid "firefox menu" if you are sane and use proper menu bars (which renders said silly menu pretty redundant). By default you can't get rid of it, even if you turn on the normal menu bar.
Re: Plucking disaster from the jaws of success is back again.
We're pretty much already there aren't we?
iPhone 4S, 5, 5S, 5C
And most of the Performas I believe were just rebadged versions of other models anyway. Performa 200=Classic 2, Performa 400,450,475=LC2,3,475 (with the 475 essentially being a Quadra 630 without a full '040 processor), Performa 600=IIvi. And that's just the UK models.
Or there's "Desktop Experience", which was a small update you could get on NT3.51 that made it look more like 4.
Windows 8.1 Update 2
Surely Windows 8.11 would make a better name for the update?
And you need to be lucky with the Infinite Improbability Drive in order to reach the right menu option.
Sounds like they were built by BOFH Industries.
"Like Vista and Windows 8," the PFY says.
"OR, You could make the upgrade so appalling that when you gave their old crap back to them and they'd think THAT was an upgrade!" I say.
"Like Vista and Windows 8," the PFY repeats.
Re: Damned if you do
The app store issue affected, from what I gather, all users - including those still on WP8. Most likely cause being everybody downloading WP8.1 and it updating everyone's apps from the store at the same time. It just fell over.
Store came back up sometime late last night I think - working fine today too.

Re: Queeg 500
"Well - it has a 6 in it."
And it's not 6000.
Yet there are still many places where carrier pigeons are still faster at transferring data.
Re: China = SpaceBalls?
That's the stupidest combination I've heard in my life! Only an idiot would use that combination.
Re: Beware what you wish for!
"Why am I suddenly feeling nostalgic about TISWAS and The Dying Fly?"
Because it was on channel 5 on saturday night (and sunday on their +24 channel)?
Re: Eastenders Game
"Get me to Manchester"
And star in Coronation Street. Who either end up going abroad or to London...
Re: @ Vladimir Plouzhnikov (was: Xtree.....)
"To be fair, over-the-top Windows (what is plural of windows - windowses? :-) ) "
I think it was DOS 3.3 where you could have a hard disk as big as you like (to a point), but your partitions couldn't be larger than 32MB. DOS 4 removed that restriction and 5 (I think) brought in support for up to 504MB until DOS 6 let you play with 2GB partitions, if you didn't mind having 32K clusters and your BIOS supported said size, or you were stuck with only being able to use a quarter of your disk.
Re: – a trend it finally broke with the sixth version of the operating system.
It's also a major contradiction lol... Vista was NT6.0 and we all know how good that was...
Faster than .gov's minimum broadband speed in some parts of the country.
Reminds me of the last Orange branded Android phone I had - it had an Orange Maps app, Orange Games and I think Orange Store - all needless, useless and unable to be removed without arsing about. Left space for about 3 user installable apps - less if you installed Facebook, which (at the time, as far as I know), doesn't let you move it to the SD card.
Ended up flogging it after I unlocked it, which is when I switched to WP8 and have never looked back.
Best way to start a Friday.
Re: All I want to know is...
I think it will, since Iceweasel is built on Firefox code, but without the branding. To all intents and purposes, it's Firefox with different logos.
But no doubt somebody will do a newer version that doesn't have this "feature".
Re: What's really missing here is a BBC film crew.
Playmobil film crew would be better.
...before the app starts showing you adverts based on the content of your SMS messages? Yet another reason I'm glad I jumped ship to WP8 - I don't even need a facebook app.
Nuke - simply because they're cool.
Streisand Effect, anyone?
"I'm told the Railway engine version was very distinctive sound. Very powerful too."

Surely it should be Windows 8.11?
That's how you start a Friday off.
