1.5 Terabits of data?
Re: Machine Operating System
The Model B startup was as follows:
BBC Computer 32K
Acorn DFS (or 1770 DFS with appropriate controller and ROM)
The B+64 and B+128 changed it to Acorn OS 64K (128K), with Acorn 1770 DFS
The Master series was Acorn Mos (for version 3.20) and MOS for 3.50) and DFS as above - and had a CMOS battery, in the shape of 3x AA batteries.
The Master Compact was:
Regarding the SD card, look up "Retroclinic".
Re: Surface Phone?
Indeed.. the original Communicator was a 386 SX/20.
Looks like they have woken up.
Even better, they did it for the princely some of 79p. I'd rather do that every year than them dick about feeding things to FB.
Re: Phone contacts
It already does the harvesting part.. how else do you have contacts in your Whatsapp contact list with an "invite" button, with no way to remove them except physically deleting the contact from the main address book. The workaround however, is to set the contact type to something that isn't 'mobile' to hide them - but the underlying issue is still there.
That just deactivates it... you've got to go digging for a link on the desktop site to actually delete the account.
Just keep away from Despair Squids... unless you have a compliment of limpet mines.

Wonder how well they'd go in a curry....

They are quite tasty after about 40 minutes in the oven...
Re: Also my first thought...
Perhaps it's pining for the fjords?
Sounds just like something BOFH and PFY would do.
Re: W. T. F. !
Don't they take it a step further these days and leave the whole laptop on the bus/train?
Re: Floppy disk orchestra...
An excellent choice... I frequent that particular channel often. He's also done the music to E1M1 of DOOM with floppies... sounds pretty good.

Which one's Will, do you know these people?
There's always the laxative related ones.
The start menu didn't really change much between its inception in Win95 and it's incarnation in XP. Vista brought about the new one, and they updated it in 7.
Re: So why do I prefer linux mint ?
Wasn't Mint designed with the intention to be Ubuntu, but without the GNOME 3 crap?
Re: Not impressed with Barclays
Rename 'su' - they work fine after that. They identify the Android layer on Jolla phones as a rooted device - renaming or deleting su fixes it - and you use something like devel-su to get superuser access anyway on those so it's no biggy.

Or been on the helium.
Re: Windows Phone?
7. Whatsapp that doesn't bother notifying you most of the time because it's not been updated to use the new WP8.1 or 10 APIs and supplies you with a constant hiss from the speaker when it's open
Fixed it for you.
Re: As an advert for *not* buying a Windows Phone
So long as they are built for x86 *and* ARM execution... Example: Terraria is XNA, but look how long it took them to port it to the Xbox 360 - XNA yes, but the X360 is also a PowerPC platform.
Re: Quirky McQuirkface..... Hopefully not.
Don't you mean NT3.5?
Re: So, UK?
Currently: TNG, DS9 and VOY are on Syfi (sub needed). TOS, DS9* on CBS Action (Freeview, Sky (without subscription to Sky)).
*Second run-through, so it could be VOY up next.
If someone has IE as their only browser... the Firefox NPAPI plugin is pretty redundant as IE doesn't use it.
Too slow, chicken mirengo ;)
Re: That says it all
Can we nuke it from orbit to be on the safe side?
"it had to create an additional build of the browser plugin specifically for Microsoft's Internet Explorer after the version made for other browsers – such as Mozilla's Firefox and Microsoft's Edge – wouldn't install properly for IE."
Hasn't that always been the case? IE uses the ActiveX plugin, and Mozilla uses the NPAPI plugin. Of course the NPAPI plugin won't install properly for IE - it was never intended for IE....

Re: Just a small bump in the road...
I had a fun Nvidia card once. Think it was an MSI one, bought from Scan (or Dabs - I can't remember), but for some reason it was deemed ok for it to have the "Pre-release firmware - not for resale" stamped in its BIOS. End result: No full screen acceleration. Software or full-screen window was fine. Outright full screen - it just died and crashed the machine.
It should also read "co-founder". Chris Curry had a hand in it too.
Re: and after disabling UEFI...
One of these is shirley just as refreshing?
Re: A deal with the devil
There was an issue a few weeks ago where AC posts were given the wrong icon I think. Maybe that's reared it's ugly head again.
Re: Why are we surprised?
You mean their *time limited* free upgrade offer, which expires on the 29th of this month? It was always stated that users of certain 7 and 8.1 SKUs would be able to upgrade for free for 12 months from the original release date, and anyone wanting to upgrade after the exipiry date would have to pony up the going currency in their area?
If you want a non-upgrade edition you still have to pony up said currency to purchase the install media and/or license key to download the iso from the store. That's never changed.

Re: How exactly does this execute?
I'd be worried if we were still using Java in the 22nd century...
The Barclays banking app isn't too different - it too doesn't claim to like running on a rooted phone (which the Android layer on a Jolla phone appears to be). It can be worked around by renaming or removing 'su' as that is apparently the guilty party.
Re: Needs to be saved for posteriority...
Nope.. as of 14:29 it's still there for all to see.
Pint, for obvious reasons :(
And one you can't block people on either.. in fact they catagorically state it's not possible because it "goes against the nature of the site". Good if you want to harass someone you've blocked on Failbook, as I found out the hard way.
Maybe it's mission is complete and it's returning to it's base: Vulture Central.
Who else read the Dr Strangelove lines in his voice? lol.
...well the newest series of BB is due to start tonight, so they must still be in for madcap wastes of time?
Re: "Perfect time to upgrade to one "
Windows installations could also bork the device in the same way.
Problem is, if you use another OS, you have the problem of getting a decent app store going, and employing an Android runtime to get the decent ones - which is what Blackberry tried in BB10 and Jolla did with Sailfish. Both didn't go well - why bother with a phone that has a compatibility layer when you can get one that runs everything native?
Would be much less hassle, and increase greatly uptake if they went with something that runs Android apps natively.
If you can create a new mobile OS, and combine it with an app store that can rival that of iOS and Android, *and* convince devs to port their apps to it, you'd be in business. Which is what MS tried with Windows Phone and that didn't go all too well either.
They could potentially go with Cyanogenmod as well. I'd go for one if that were the case.
TITSUP? More like SNAFUBAR
Sadly making the trade illegal will do nothing to stop it.
Re: This just in.....
It's happened on the weather report already so I don't see why not.
