i see the fanbois are out downvoting....hilarious! how can you downvote a post because I say its difficult to repair it when it blatantly is??
not that i give a shit. its all gravy.
ooh..he slagged off my shiny thing! i know whatll hurt...there, take that! a downvote, yeah! really sticking it to the man!
replaced one of these recently.
in addition to having to remove everything in the laptop to get at it, there are 50 screws holding it in place.
and they are tiny.
having watched a video of replacing it before quoting, i jacked up the the labour quote hoping the customer would go away somewhere else , but his response was (and this is verbatim)
"I understand the price, it seems that anything involving apple is doubled in price immediately!"
you wanna replace a retina screen? apple charge £700 for the part - actyually, its not the screen, its the whole top half. you can buy a (non apple) retina replacement screen for £100. dont try it yourself, its fucking impossible without cutting yourself to ribbons as they have glued a 0.5mm thick screen to the chassis. glued it. ffs!
actually, dropbox keeps the last 5 file versions. although a roll back with that would be a pain in the arse one file by one file.
i use carbonite, which keeps the last 5 versions. too, but additionally, if someone gets hit with crypto, carbonite have a dedicated team.
they can tell when the infection hit (by a massive spike in uploaded files ...as they are encrypted, they change, and carbonite dutifully uploads it). they can then roll the backup back to before it happened. then you download your clean data.
its £42 per year. its peanuts. its really really worth it. (ok, so server versions are more expensive but its only a few hundred quid a year).
Proper picture please
" but only noticed as missing three days when after solicitors turned up to meet him in prison."
He's not the only one then
nearer the equator. also, you could use the connecting road between Gibraltar and the part of spain we havent yet annexed as the runway.
all ads should be like this. then they just change the product at the end. providing of course, you havent gone blind by the end of the advert.
we'll see how your mini elephant goes against my mini giraffe idea.
to be fair, he didnt say underwater depth. im guessing he's living in a deep, dark hole - the location of which is possibly inside his own arse
roger roger, charlie tango teakettle barbeque. see you next tuesday.
"I confess that I am so out of touch with Hollywood that when I saw a German cinema advertising "Die Hard" I got out my dictionary to find out what a "Hard" was."
Die Hard - if im lucky, thats the way i'll go out....
well, thats very easy for you to say.
name it after the traditional submariners "device" for autopleaseure. wankSOCKS
if you must subject the wine to another vessel, you need one of these
whadyamean you use a glass?
what about the battery? nowhere near is my guess.
"watt" is the point?
throw em away after how many cycles and get new ones. is Apple behind this?
"Consumer security - Norton - slipped 11 per cent to $461m"
glad i'm having some effect on that hideous pile of crap.
surely that should be

thats because (puts on jedi robe)

paris, because, well, she knows how to look at the mantelpiece whilst stoking the fire.
i tell you what, if you give me a tenner, next year i'll make you -£25.
sound good? no?
well, let me tell you about our track record then. we took over 100 million dollars last year. and guess what? we spent all of it! not only that, we spent MORE than that! we sure can spend money!
and the previous years, yup, we spent more than we took every single time. YEAH! capitalism!
so come on, how can you miss this?
i read "serco"
to just pay a decent wage for teaching? starting salary of 23k for a maths graduate? and you have to put up with children? whats not to like....
their vertex drives were shite...massive failure rate. never bothered to use any of their others and probably ever will - cost me a lot of time!

yeah! and who pays the people who pay for the servers.
and who pays them?
and who pays them???
aaaRRRGGH! my frickin' brains going to explode! it feels like friday and its only monday. AAARGH!
haha! thats EXACTLY what i thought of too! have an upvote.
love the bueller
i find this useful on my phone, but ive wondered how much it makes me express myself in a much more defined and narrow manner than i otherwise would. it sort of distills your language. im waiting for the day when it just writes my texts for me as soon as i open it.
rooting a screwdriver will probably result in a hospital visit.
"huh? what this? i have no idea what that gerbil is doing with a screwdriver shoved through it. what was the gerbil doing in my anus in the first place? uh, well officer..."
couldnt agree more. 100hz was fab.
right, stop bringing out half baked smart bollox curvey shit which doesnt work and make a better screen that is capable of displaying the content thats on it.
just STOP IT and make the thing work properly in the first fucking place from the ground up.
thankyou. nothing more to see here.
if it is a clone - wouldnt the shipping date be may the 4th?
not if every cpu has actually been compromised - maybe theres a bit of grunt reserved only for five eyes tasks on every machine on the planet.
oh god how deep does the rabbit hole go?
can you imagine??!!
an fbi screensaver (seti@home flavoured) that actively tries to crack other peoples (or possibly your own) encrypted files?
i wonder what you would get as a reward...maybe some get out of jail free cards or a plea bargain for every block decoded.
"Sooo... the humanist scientific angle is "We haven't a clue how it could have happened, we can't do an experiment to repeat the process , we just know it wasn't a god" because you can't do an experiment to test a god. Not only that, but because it happened on earth without a god, it must be easy. If it's easy then it must be happening all over the place!"
you haven't actually addressed the question, simply restated it - i dont know how it happened so god must have done it. proves my point really. the humanist scientific angle is simply "we will try and find out"
"What? The work of Damadian was essential to the invention of MRI. Damadian was a creationist!"
so what? he could be a satanist for all i care. how did he discover what he did? by using divining rods or by using scientific method?
"The first man on the moon was a deist!"
so what? how did he get there? by reading the bible or by scientific process?
"its morals are also massively questionable in lots of it" Mate, God's morals are a theological issue, not a scientific one.
I know it all seems clear to you, but you also appear biased."
yes i am biased towards scientific explainations, because your book (one of many which claim to reveal the truth), which is supposedly the incontrovertible truth, is so full of holes, falsehoods and terrible morals that i wouldnt believe any of what it says.
is that when some new evidence comes along, we can say - oh, yes, we were wrong - lets change how we think about this, instead of, say, calling that person a heretic and burning them,
science doesnt claim to know everything, science is about making the best models we can of what we can detect around us. as technology improves, more things are revealed to us. we would be stupid to, say, hang onto the idea that the earth is flat today even in the light of the ancient greeks (predating christ by a good few cenuries) knowledge.
and so science is changeable, and the best science happens when someone says "woah - THAT doesnt look right...lets investigate"
the religious angle again is always, at the bottom of the pile of turtles "god did it".
not any use for making anything usefull like an mri scanner, anti virals, landing on the moon etc etc.
you have your book, which is manifestly wrong on many many things. its morals are also massively questionable in lots of it, just go read the evil bible website. if you stand by the "facts" in that book, then you are blind to the truth. thats fine if you want to bury your head in the sand, but thats not what science does.
pretty sure stephen baxter wrote a short story including exactly that
they obviously took lessons from my missus. she uonce put together a wardrobe using a hammer to bang the screws into it.
i called it "the great leaning wardrobe of woodstock"
how the fuck it stayed (vaguely) vertical is probably proof of the existence of god. which god though, is in question. im thinking norse - IKEA
panspermia doesnt rule out the possibility that life evolved here anyway without help from panspermia - and vice-versa - life could have been seeded here by panspermia but that doesnt rule out the possibility that life can evolve elsewhere without it.
theres also an intersection of the two, where life wouldnt have evolved somewhere unless helped by panspermia, and the flip side of that too, where the panspemia additions wouldnt have made any difference without the local planets attributes.
they arent mutually exclusive and dont need to be. in fact, they both lend support to each other.
also, life is only "as we know it" - there may be other forms of chemical structrures that can evolve to the level of self-questioning intelligence.
there could also be intelligences out there that were made by precursor intelligences too.
life may have happened once and spread.
life may have happened multiple times, and some of them spread.
life may have only happened once.
maybe theres another kind of life out there that wouldnt recognise us as "life" and believe that they are the only ones.
personally, given that we are not remarkable as a place in space time, and given the time and space available for it to happen, for me the the chances of us being the only ones are close to zero.
the problem with the religious argument is that its pointless. "god did it" is the bottom of the turtle pile for every single question you ever ask. that to me is completely pointless and unsatisfying. its a nice comfort blanket for a lot of people though, so that they dont have to think too hard about stuff.
no, thats not a porn site. its a personal vpn. super easy to use.
15 quid a year or some tosh, enables you to pop up in quite a few locations in the world, then you can use localized regional content, or for instance, go on kick ass torrents or pirate bay. not that i do, obviously.
i got a bar in turkey to use it during the world cup so we could get English commentary. shame it didnt make the football any better....
ive got a customer in sunningdale who is about to buy a leased line. he could really do with the grant but he is not eligible because of his postcode.
how fucking stupid is that?
There should be a pork pie shaped case for rpi's
Agreed...especially with the speaker cables....still...he's a git anyway!
I think the easiest thing to do for small sme's is hosted exchange and something like team viewer or log me in for remote access. Easy, cheap, pretty secure, gives all the access you need to programs at work, simple to manage and doesnt take much looking after. You also dont have to expose your server to the outside world if they have one. I use a nas box most of the time anyway.
is still soldering on after, what, 8 years or so? pretty neat piece of kit for its time.
but we know that in space, no one can hear you scream. even if its gloria.
superb piece of kit. upgraded from a note 2. camera is way better. the stackable apps quick switch is the best new feature - i dont know how i got along without it before. it is very loud which is great for hands free.
The writer needs to proof read. It's a painfull read. Shell out for a few commas next time.
wearable 3d printer.
could be good for retro gags - have it sewn into the arse end of your pants. get it to print reams of paper like substance
"oooh...ive got a fax coming through!"
fade in (on an apple, obviously, although not the beatles apple, coz that would be copyright infringement probably. well, its apple after all, maybe it wouldnt)
some clouds...aka simpsons...
a man......with a halo drifts into view obscured by a ball of white light with a bite taken out of the side
light gets brigther...fills the whole screen...
then....deep, booming voice "and so the entire world of tech was invented, BEFORE TIME ITSELF, thus allowing us to invent EVERYTHING before anyone else. mwahahahahaha!"
maybe an outtake where bill gates is crushed to death by an apple, or kicked in the balls by jack black "so now this is happening"
can i have 50 million billion dollars to make it now please?
