Perhaps it's pining for the fjords?
Sounds just like something BOFH and PFY would do.
Don't they take it a step further these days and leave the whole laptop on the bus/train?
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.
Wasn't Mint designed with the intention to be Ubuntu, but without the GNOME 3 crap?
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.
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.
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.
Don't you mean NT3.5?
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 ;)
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....
New Symantic Anti-virus v.23: 100% secure until you remove the shrinkwrap.
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.
One of these is shirley just as refreshing?
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.
Windows 7 works fine with UEFI - so long Secure Boot is turned off. It also refuses to boot the installer if SB is turned on. Saying that, 8.1 and 10 work fine with SB off. My box dual boots Mint 17.3 and Win10 Education (it was free via Dreamspark). Both of which play nice with Secure Boot. However there are two reasons I don't use it - I can't be bothered derping about to get rEFInd signed so Secure Boot doesn't throw a wobbly, and it doesn't like my Radeon 6850 X2, even with the GOP ROM flashed onto it.
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.

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.
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?
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.
It's happened on the weather report already so I don't see why not.
Don't some .govs just make the figures up anyway?
And shouts of "experminate!"?
They even managed to port Sim City to the Beeb (though from the C64 version).
You should check out what some of the newer sourceports can do with the engine. My port of choice is Zandronum, paired with Brutal Doom.
Accurate figure, if one assumes the install files of the shareware version, which came on 2 HD floppies. Fully installed it's around 5MB - and the retail version is pushing 11MB (going on the basis of DOOM v1.2).
I've never seen that happen... mind you I use rEFInd as my boot loader. The only thing it defaults to is that last OS it booted.
Payment taken in advance, of course...
A spellcheck wouldn't pick that up. A grammar check, however.....
Ice Weasel is just Debian's rebadged version of Firefox. Aside from the icons and name it's functionally identical, so that will go the same way eventually.
And when you do have to go up to the surgery chemist to collect emergency medication after being told half an hour earlier they're booked solid for the next three weeks - you find the place bereft of patients.
wgetis broken and should DIE, dev tells Microsoft
