Try to not do it
I recently build my new main PC. So far I haven't put flash (or any Adobe) product on and hoping to never have to. Only think I have currently not been able to do is watch game promo videos in Steam.
Java too is on my resist list but that may prove harder in the long run as too much excellent software uses it.
I don't care what the target market is. The MK is a much samller, much more powerful device, more RAM and flash, with USB, HDMI, SD and WiFi that you can put Linux on. It does everything these boards do, much more and better for cheaper. You even get a case (which you can cut off if you want your device to look like an unfinished hobby mess).
I was interested in these things until I heard about the MK808. Makes these things look so overpriced and under achieving.
Re: Flash gets worse
Maybe you should have stuck with ferite core? What was wrong with that?
If you can't see the benefits of smaller and higher density storage...
So we have to thank Thatcher for technological advances in an industry that didn't even exist in her day? I think not. Regardless of ploitics and how you think about her it is ridiculous to suggest that things are better now because of her that they would otherwise be. All we know is that we have different technologies and systems now than we did in 1979.
Thatcher did not give me fiber broadband, I know this for a fact because, like most people, it isn't available to me yet.
"Did they think this through?"
Did you think this through? This is enabled by an act of parliment. It is protected by law. look up legal deposit legislation, it's been a round for a long time, this new provision extends that to non-print, something that was granted in 2003 but has only just gone through today 10 years later.
Yes, this has been thought through, a lot!
Andy why is this being done at all? It's for YOU, to make everything that is published (in whataever form) available to the public and forever.
I offer a /dev/null storage archive at extremely competative rates (4 or 6 times lower than the tape storage guys)
I also offer a low cost option for destruction of data should you ever decide you don't need it any longer.
BT always get the blame
It's all too easy to blame BT, but why isn't anyone else able to do this stuff? Is anyone else willing to do this? I wonder if all the problems we have now stem back from the days when the government wanted to open up competition for cable so allowed a bunch of US companies to come in, cream off the profits before screwing everything up and sodding off again, at the same time shackeling BT to make it favorable for said companies to come in and do that.
Not a bad list for the brief. Angreed with many, Start trek is a wtf.
Agree with Contact, that is a seriously good film imo. But a nice little quirky one I remember is Android, rather dated now, covers similar things to Blade Runner (in a different/lighter way)
Shame, could have been a useful article; but went for pompous and unfunny instead.
Not just the exchange
My exchange is currently in the latter stages of the upgrade, due for completion by the end of the month.
My cabinet will still be long lenght rusty wired adsl and will continue to be so for decades after the shiney openreach vans have driven off to pastures new.
Upgrading your exchange is not all it's cracked up to be; but I bet my area will be listed officially as fibre enabled for targets purposes.
Half a billion for a bug affecting some old system that nobody noticed for 18 months.
Meanwhile, everyone has to put up with a retarded choice screen. Thank you EU, and can I say I particularly like having every other site I visit tell me all about cookies. (that one no doubt paid for by M$ first fine).
I wonder how EU will choose to annoy me with this half a billion.
<troll> Linux because one day soon it might actually become usable </troll>
Glad to know no valuable police resrouces were wasted conducting this 3 month investigation. Serious crime is serious!
Re: I wonder what would happen
Dunno, but I'm pretty sure we would all lose
"Kinda like Hibernate but simpler and better"
You mean like sleep? I always sleep my PCs now, they come on in <3 seconds usable. Not quite instant but I haven't worried about boot times for quite a long time now. I have no idea how long my PC takes to boot, I only do it when there is an update once a month and I that happens when I am asleep.
Does it need programmers that cost nearly £10K a month?
For cat stupidity/userland video - no
For a netflix/lovefilm etc like chanel - maybe
So here is a question for you
What is a sensible population for a small island with sever houseing shortages?
Answer: A lot less than it is now.
Every country in the world really needs to take a look at it's population and come up with policies to promote moving to an ideal and sustainable population (whatever the ethnicity).

Does this mean that when some average person is fined $8000 per track for illegally downloading a song, that money doesn't go to the artist?!!
Those be high quality commentards at GrahicsUnleashed.
Many Reg articles could benefit from their inclusion :)
The clue was in the name all along
Given the number of business products Microsoft have out there its hardly surprising that they check more businesses. I would be more worried about a company that only had one product but still managed to "kick down the door" of so many businesses...
It's a sales problem
While there are genuine use cases for archiving, most people do not have an archiving requirement. The "Problem" is how solution providers can convince everyone that they need an archiving solution when they don't.
Archiving is more about what you don't archive than what you do.
Not all data is equal, most of it (99.999999999999999%) is worthless junk.
Re: Have I broken the law too?
Surely that's Vogon poetry?
They should turn off radio 1 to see if anyone (important) notices or cares.
I'm really hoping they mess it up again and we see some jail time.
Why isn't there a popcorn icon?
These figures look like the sort of junk the media industry use to justify stupid levels of damages caused by file sharers. Insane creative accounting
