Re: How many fingers am I holding up?
I used to play Unreal online with a one button 'hockey puck' on an original bondi imac which was a bit of a struggle admittedly. love the magic mouse though truly a work of art.

A whole new shiny level of reasons why you can't have that corporate font in your PowerPoint deck.
Re: I have a folder of cat pictures.
I presume it's on a hidden volume in a faraday cage and encrypted in rot13 like mine.
BOFH and the PFY must be quaking in their Hush Puppies
Type your comment here feel free to use flash, cold fusion or <blink> cool effects</blink>
I want BoFH(ski) and the PFY's view of the ukrainian spring.
Bobby Quine did it with the russian icebreaker
This whole thing reminded me of my favourite quote from 2012
Rob Rachwald, director of security strategy at Imperva, commented: "The Bitcoin attack introduces an interesting paradigm: hackers hacking hackers may be more effective than direct law enforcement activity. Like a mafia war where criminals kill each other, law enforcement just sits back and sees who’s left." old Reg link
Made me re-read William Gibson's burning chrome so my guess is Bobby and russian icebreaker did their thing.
"Think of it this way. An upDATE is when your Missus gets you to buy a new suit and and upGRADE would be when she gets Brad Pitt in whatever clothes he's wearing. She may upDATE his clothes at some stage in the future or she might just be too pleased with the upGRADE to bother."
My missus would probably unDRESS Brad rather than upDATE but pretty sound analysis
oh is that the time...
Dell same-day onsite fixit-tards
I wonder why the need for this, could it be that they break ALL the time.
we had 2x dell laptops for testing websites and presentations for a company i worked for and both needed new motherboards, one within 6 months and the other the week after the warranty expired.
I've had one day of downtime with my MacPro since 2008 when a power unit went, had a new one shipped next day, I fitted it in 10 minutes and then carried on working.
I'll be giving it a year before getting my darth dustbin to avoid beta-testing so April shipping is no biggie to me.
all lorry drivers everywhere will and can look for work elsewhere.
on the positive side serial killing would cease to be a problem.

Re: Team Register ?
even though their part of "Team Register" is to go get coffee every morning for the actual paid employees of El Reg.
I always assumed El Reg was an "infinite monkeys with typewriters in the backroom" kind of place with a randomiser as front-end. I never thought people getting paid played any part.

good old DNA i miss him terribly at times
Re: The thinking man's grandma
Stephen Fry has never claimed to be any sort of guru
He was big mates with Douglas Adams at the start(ish) of the whole apple thing, they were both obsessed with the tech of the time and Stephen dusts off his fanboi credentials every new launch.
Just an amiable guy who likes his macs – i've never heard him claim to be a computer boffin

Great link, "Are you really gonna do it?" made my day
Re: Floppy dicks
Laptop manufacturers tried to do the same, failed, and started a load of bullshit dissing?
nope, iPad happened next, cue bullshit dissing and it'll never catch onnery ad nauseum
When email could handle a 1mb attachment the floppy was dead, steve saw it, then everyone else did, after a load of bullshit dissing of course.
When Phone development could handle a decent OS & GUI steve built one, then everyone else did the same, after a load of bullshit dissing of course.
Then laptop development reached a stage where you could go light and breezy, guess what happened next?
Re: Here's another legal hypothetical ...
Deliberate destruction of 'evidence' matey, you are nicked my son, i'll just get on the phone to the sun and let them know we've got another 'terrorist' bust going down while my friend DI nasty here applies the waterboard.
Made For Idiots once priced up a kitchen for me and were £8,000 (EIGHT GRAND) more expensive than IKEA, so no surprise they went under

Lapdogs of the NSA
As it is in US A4 (letter) format I assume that it is mainly intended for our colonial cousins in the NSA over the pond.
I wonder what theirs looks like? if the prism ppt deck is anything to go by it will be even 'better' than this.
Merry christmas to all
I had a wake-up issue with my 2008 MacPro on sunday morning, looks like the power is on the blink like the wife's last year, nearly £200 for that new one and they've both been getting a little slow recently too to tell the truth...
In the style of the Register could mean anything
BoFH, Bong, or amanfrommars are on here too
+2 MacPros on next year's figures should help Mr Tim hang on a while yet
Our 2008 MacPros are still doing all they need to (just) I added extra RAM in 2010, bigger discs in 2012.
Adobe CC starting to bend them a little now but hey 6 years hassle-free hard work is the benchmark for me.
Back with bang (and screams)
Friday at last!
seems like months since the last one, time for a lunchtime livener
Cheers to all and have a wonderful weekend

RTFM - great advice to spies (or anyone else)
Great advice, to add my tuppenceworth If you need a company logo (perhaps to create a business card whilst pretending to be a rep), forget all the 'brands of the world' nonsense and search for a PDF from the company's website. Most are created using indesign and contain .eps or .ai vector logos which can be very easily ripped out and repurposed.
Not a Pi rival, more a Mac-mini clone
Thunderbird option is interesting though, is it going to breakthrough where firewire didn't
Damn you microsoft
Damn you all to hell.

Perfect executive toy/laptop replacement, ppt (not a crap port to Keynote) should work straight out of the box, will it wirelessly connect to a projector?

Re: Real BOFH fans...
some of us know even less than that and use macs with virtual PCs...
Jacking lorries skill training required
MacPro? we're all mac pro's here honey
According to my reseller buddyord they aren't going to be updating the MacPros, no faster, stronger, longer, nada. So cherish that tower baby as it's gonna have to last.
Re: Piss off
As a cynical appletard (nice terminology) who uses (virtual) PC's all day everyday and MS Office for a living I am glad that my clients are big corporates who will migrate to 8 in a few years if it's ever fixed (they all skipped vista). I'd just like to say that It looks like a fisher price operating system to me and i'm sure kids everywhere will just love it..

Wankers the lot of them, I presume that people realise that comments are searchable from outside the hallowed hall of El Reg land and A/C is sometimes the only option to comment without it being held against you in a job interview plod-search scenario.
