Whatever. I'm just explaining the situation. And I'm one of the UK based Mods.
Calm down dear.
You got modded because there were already 38 separate threads discussing exactly the same thing.
You'd already posted in 6 of them including going off on one at the LMI rep and then decided to start one of your own.
Perhaps you ought to take your own advice and "RTFM" - there are guidelines for the use of the Spiceworks Community and they're based on American standards, so what goes over here on El Reg (and people have been modded to death here as well) doesn't necessarily fit their rules.
And thanks for effectively calling me a cunt.
Thanks for bringing this back into my head...
Moses supposes his toeses are roses, but Moses supposes erroneously. For nobody's toeses are posies of roses as Moses supposes his toeses to be.
It's the perfect compliment

Reminds me of this SOPA f**K up.
We are the gits that say NI...
I can only imagine the hell that some of you are going through, given how much I was hounded for about £670 of (allegedly) unpaid Class 2 NI, that after 4 years they finally admitted I didn't owe.
This includes the stress of them passing the alleged debt on to a Debt Collection company in Lancashire who refused to stop hassling me even after HMRC had written to me confirming that I owed them nothing.

Will be hitting the pub in 6 hours courtesy of the gifts of money from staff and vendors alike :D

Probably NSFW and no doubt a potential victim of Cam-moron's policies.
I managed to get the ear of someone (very senior) at HP during Spiceworld London and pressed them about how they interact with the SMB/SME market.
One of the things that vital to me is the ability to try kit out to see if it's fit for purpose. I have no budget to buy something, find out it's no good and scrap it - even if it's just a £500 laptop.
If I'm in big business I can get stuff thrown at me. I can go to the likes of SCC/ComputaCenter and play with every toy under the sun. If I'm SMB I just have to hope I've made the right decision.
An email conversation has been started. Hopefully something good will come of it.
I think we all need to pressure the vendors for fair treatment.
Re: Would the Floyd gentlemen then also consider...
If you're using the music for work (i.e. as a DJ) then you can happily format shift in the uk with a Produb license.
Are we talking bike based trikes or car based trikes? :D
Re: Correction Correction Huw D
Bikers live and breathe bikes.
Motorcyclists have bikes, but aren't necessarily bikers.
Blokes who turn up in cars and then put their full leathers/helmets on are collectively known as tossers.
Correction Re: Correction
All bikers ride motorcycles. However, not everyone who rides a motorcycle is a biker either.
Now enough of this, I'm off to the Farmyard Party.
Re: Just "a" follower?
There's a difference between the queue of people lining up to see a celebrity and the queue of people lining up to throw rotten vegetables at a bloke in the stocks...
If you're going to visit...
..try and avoid the 10/11 of May this year, unless you like being stuck in traffic behind loads of people going to an event at Astle Park (next door to Jodrell Bank).
Re: MDM @Lusty
The issue is not about working round IT, per se, it's more about breaking company policy.
For what it's worth, I've seen people get fired for breaking company policy at Law firms, big banks and at a large Financial Services company. One was for sending confidential information to a personal email address, one was for losing data on a USB stick and another was for logging on to a transactional system as someone else because they didn't have the rights to do a task themselves.
In all these cases, the policies were set by the companies, not by a draconian IT department stuck in the 60s.
If you're working in a regulated industry such as Financial Services or Healthcare, your carefree approach to where data goes would probably result in your employer deeming you worthy of dismissal.
I would rather die happy with a bacon sarnie in my hands than die miserable without one.

If you wear a business mullet...
... what you're saying to me is that you want to be Jeremy Clarkson. Especially if you turn up in an expensive car.
Re: Got one just before Xmas
At the end of the day, 3G was important for my needs. The other choice was for me to go out and buy a tablet (at £x) and still have to pay for a data contract with someone (for £y per month).
I am happy to pay what I paid and as I said, YMMV.
Got one just before Xmas
Wanted a cheap and cheerful tablet with 3G.
Spoke to Vodafone and as a long standing business customer I got it for free, with the data at £15 per month.
At that price I can't complain, and it does everything I need it to do.
Re: It's about the Scots
I believe it was a famous Scots comedian that came out with that originally, but hey ho.

Charlie Sheen to take the lead role then?
Actually they try to identify by serial number first. It's only if they can't find one that they move on to other things - and a MAC address isn't guaranteed constant either.
Re: You fail to show the ADVERTISEMENTS!
To be honest, I don't find the ads any more intrusive than the ads on El Reg, but as ever mileage varies.
If you're using it for your helpdesk portal, the users don't see the ads anyway.
What about that...

Re: Ipad as generic name for tablet
Congratulations on having such an astute child.
Re: End of the world?
It's in bootnotes. No IT angle required. Maybe people are getting used to it.

All consonants? Sound like the Welsh language edition of Countdown...
We'll be round later to collect the money and leave a sheep's head on your pillow.
I'm on VM in Nottingham and I'm not seeing these issues. Sorry :(

Is it just me, or the rose tinted glasses?
Personnel departments used to treat you like a person.
Human Resources departments treat you like a resource.
If sure it was better in ye olde days.
Having been at Spiceworld London 2012 all I can say is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" will never be the same...
Re: what do the earphones sound like?
Yes, I've had the pleasure of Lemmy's monitor mix as well. Trapped between that and Murder One.

Don't they raise a lot of money and then give next to sod all to the people that need it?
As Ben has stated, as long as you can browse the management web page, you're sorted.
Similarly, as long as your Linux based device can be seen by Spiceworks, you can manage/monitor it from Spiceworks
