Maybe it's a problem with the AE-35 unit?
To all those people bemoaning Windows Mobile...
...and talking up BlackBerry, iPhone & Android:
I, with my dated UI and unfashionable logo, am able to RUN ANY CODE I DAMN WELL PLEASE on my handset! Not only that, but I'm not locked to a particular network (or e-mail server) and it's been around long enough to have a much richer, more useful, and less novelty-ridden range of apps available.
Who cares about WM6.5 with it's fancy new skin and smudge-tastic finger interface? Ugly old 6.1 is where it's at!
Paris icon because she's pretty but useless.
Nowhere does it say the students were underage.
Cats with no tails
First you all whinge about UAC, then when MS actually do what you ask, you slag them off for it!
Just because it's fashionable to be an MS / Vista hater.
@ andy re: linux
sometimes I want to just install a program and use it! eg:
a) the linux way:
1 - configure repositories
2 - spend 3 hours learning how the program was coded before you can figure out which cryptic option you should select.
3 - spend 2 more hours researching and obtaining arcane dependencies
4 - code half the functionality yourself by writing a .config file to replace the bizarre one included in the package
5 - discover that it doesn't run on your hardware anyway
b) the windows way:
1 - download setup.exe
2 - run setup.exe
3 - use program
Wait a second. Wait a second.
I have detected a fault with the AE-35 unit. I do not know the nature of the fault, just that it will fail.
There have actually been 2 branches of Windows versions through the years:
#1: 'Home Use' - 9x kernel
95 = 4.0
98 = 4.5
me = 4.9
And there was never version 5 of this.
#2: 'Business Use' - NT kernel
NT4.0 = NT4.0
2000 = NT5.0
After this home & business OSs used the NT kernel
XP = NT5.1
Server 2003 = NT5.1
Vista = NT6.0
Server 2008 = NT6.0
7 = NT7.0

Apparently, it's now
Tits *and* GTFO
Every (STS) Trip
They *have* released a patch for the majority already? (SP3 of course!)
These type of scams have been around for years!
If anything, "canceling" a wave (which is an extremely dumbed-down description) is going to excite the molecules and PRODUCE heat!
Remember folks, today's Top Tip is:

You mean DSL?
3G *is* too slow for surfing.
Unless you're just doing email, HSDPA all the way!

Doesn't seem like pedophiles to me.
God damn reactionaries.
So the terrorists have won.
Because some stupid prats like to blow themselves up the entire bloody world gives them special treatment.
Religion (AKA My-imaginary-friend-is-better-than-yours) should just be banned from all media channels.
If anything is going to get censored it should be the intolerant views of a minority, not the perfectly harmless things that they get their knickers in a twist over.
I don't give a flying s**t about islam, it should not be intruding into my life like this!
My new fave BOFH ever
I'm prepared to believe this one is fact, not fiction!
So when do I get my
Zero-Point Energy field manipulator?
Mine's the orange one with the crowbar
That's the first deal that's tempting me away from O2 in a long long LONG time!
(O2 have super coverage in Manchester - even in basements I can still get a strong 2G signal).
In our shop (we're a PC reseller so our goods are a target for easy sell-on)
We refuse to "fall-back" to mag strip if the chip doesn't work - and we keep a record of the three-digit security #. If someone does manage to defraud us, we're protected from the bank accusing us of accepting a cloned card!
What a cheap-looking finish! Reminds me of an old, OLD Vaio (circa PIII).
"can no longer maintain the illusion that it isn't complete shite."
Hahaha! First genuine LOL for ages from this cynical BOFH!
They should have allowed that one ;¬)
Oh, why did you have to put "Windows-based"?
The moment I saw that it spoiled all surprises on what the comments would be.
I would think...
that this is only relevant to people with USB modems?
Anyone doing fresh installations probably has a home router anyway!
@ How does a fake [...]
Lights say 2.8v , 0.3a.
USB provides 5v @ 0.5a.
So yes, there is enough USB power to run *that bulb*.
Whether that bulb can output enough heat to pop popcorn is the actual sticking point, for me.
Like how we laugh at 120Mb ones now? ;¬)

And they don't know to never tangle with the BOFH?

Back to the old school
Like the "classic-BOFH" style of this one.
I wouldn't mind a merger
Despite BT's heel-dragging and reluctance to speculate, I have a lot of confidence in both companies of the ability to deliver quality products.
Maybe it's the lack of being HQ-ed in the cut-throat Taiwanese market, or just the native-speaking English documentation, but they just seem to be more 'finished' & polished, without seeming to have cut corners (Asus, I'm looking at you! - Eee PC excepted of course ;¬).
Set-Top boxes usually remain the property of whoever the service provider is.
If they've any sense
It'll be a bootable drive
To paraphrase the BOFH
*Real* computers have a hole in the front for trees to go in, and a hole in the back for smoke to come out!
"Human bodies naturally emit T-Rays"
So no more "bench builds" then? And what sort of sheilding will our PC's cases need to keep the interference out?
To put effort into scanning properly.
Not like the Olympic 2012 builders who will just misuse it & complain until it is withdrawn.
THAT's what needs implementing!
Backwards compatibility is king
And THAT is why USB will not even feel the dent from any FireWire offerings.

Actually, they already have one build running on just 40-odd megs.
So let me get this straight...
Unlike in the UK, US customers can't just put an arbitrary SIM card (or equivalent) into an arbitrary Windows Mobile device (for example) and run software that uses the TCP/IP stack? (For instance, the highly capable Google Maps Mobile).
If that's the case, no wonder Google are so keen to open it up. If not, what is the actual situation? It's a little unclear for us on the GMT side of the pond (or at least me).
I think that's the angle nVidia are taking with their incarnation of Hybrid Crossfire, imaginatively named Hybrid SLI. Specifically the bit called HybridPower.
That and the Vista-only requirement make me think it is simply a feature of DX10.1 that both houses are trying to market as original.
Don't be silly, they are so small that dust won't be able to get in.
Also, they'll be sealed like HDDs.
No weight in space, reg.
Therefore there are no such 200-pound power units on or near the ISS.
Unless you mean a really cheap GBP£200 piece of kit from the ESA.
Don't forget the inbuilt FM transmitter
Killer App IMO.
Seeing as Friday is the last day in February, it would appear to be a squeezed-in deadline.
iPhone SDK on Friday, anyone?
I'd like to see software reliably tell bunnies & kittens apart.
I'd like to see bunnies & kittens!
