Shark Laser Razor? GENIUS.
It's not a turn of phrase. It's a typo typo. And I'm about to fix it.
Fair point. What I was trying to say was that M204's been known to be unfit for purpose since 2001.
Or many others.
Well played, sir. 100 Internet points to Gryffindor.
Slow day? I would've thought a theft from a data centre and leak of customer data ranked as a decent piece of news.
Tiny rational rump of the republican party?
Moderate wing of the Republican party of the 1980s?
Republican party before it went nuts?
The problem was that the Health Dept employs all manner of specialist folks and pays people differently depending on hours worked. So a certain class of nurse could be paid different rates at different times of day, then again on weekends. Figuring out all that stuff made for massive complexity. And the goalposts kept shifting ...
Thanks Abergias. FWIW we actually think of The Reg as a global site, albeit with deep, deep UK roots. There's 2.8 of us in AU and we cover Oz for Oz, but also cover the whole world.
This might help. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/03/10/happy_20th_birthday_microsoft_bob/
There's a Win 3.1 VM to download. With Bob.
This data centre.
Disgusted? The idea is that the entirely over-the-top headline conveys Kaspersky's feeling that the allegations against him are ridiculous. As ridiculous as the headline.
Deaths in the thousands, apparently.
How can we get you from tempted to committed?
C'mon down and do the ride. I've a bike made of conflict aluminium for you!
The shirt will be on sale to all. And I do like the premium pricing option. Will raise it with the relevant authorities.
I'll certainly be posting Strava stuff. In fact I recorded a single ride on Strava with two phones this week, with interesting results. Will try same experiment on longer ride this weekend.
Am also contemplating using Periscope during the ride, to live-stream it from the handlebars. The ride goes through some mobile blackspots,but I'll see what's doable.
You get ONE LOUSY CHARACTER WRONG and this is what happens ;-)
Sorted. Thanks for pointing it out.
NetApp is a public company. In the data protection business. And for years it has leaked company data into a public forum that I am able to access over RSS without login and without a view of the T&Cs.
All you need to do to see this stuff is look in the right place.
A place, by the way, that has also regularly been spammed by third parties over the years. Often with pr0n. Now >that's< the kind of security I expect from my storage provider. Not.
I have no agenda regarding NetApp. None.
But when I see a company unable to manage its own affairs, and leaking evidence of that, it's the job to report it.
Thanks for the kind words.
For the record, The Reg's HQ is in London. But I, Richard Chirgwin and Darren Pauli are all here in 'straya. We do try to cover local matters, but we are part of the global team and the Reg runs one global edition.
Hi all. Author here.
Granted, "doctrinaire" isn't the most common word out there.
But I used it because it was one word that summed up what I was trying to say. Which wasn't quite "bias" and wasn't quite "for political reasons". So "doctrinaire" it was.
A couple of weeks ago another reader took me to task for using "schlep".
Long story short: taking a break next week, expect to come back with further reaches of vocabulary dulled by food and booze.
I thought that was the point of living in rural France. Silly me.
I think this is more of a "nobody outside of video production cared, so nobody other than Apple really cared, so we've got to do something to try to make someone care" kind of thing.
Fair cop. Did I tell you how hard it was to find an image for this story? What's that? I shouldn't whinge about shop talk? You're right.
FWIW I checked Newegg UK and Australia. No prices there.
Nope. A pic from the Uber Cincinatti launch. Flickr CC collection FTW
Google "Amadeus Basin oilfield." I stumbled upon it last year when driving from the West MacDonnell Ranges to Kings Canyon. There's a working oilfield out there. Not huge. But big enough that it's being exploited. And I can recommend a trip to the West Macs. Gorgeous country.
And that's bad because ... ?
No directive. It's a term I like and hear used a bit in Australia. I'm aware that the vocabulary I use goes through phases. Right now I'm perhaps expressing a bit too much luvvie love.
At a guess, often enough for Boeing to tell the FAA and the FAA to issue a new directive.
Android is promised real soon now
USB sticks. Cheap as chips. Not as tasty.
I get one lousy capital letter wrong and ... fixing it now
I should clarify: they're set up to do it. But it's not what VMware's selling. They're selling hybrid cloud in which, should you choose, you can pay by the minute. I'll tidy up the story to reflect that.
We're not committed: the shout-out was a fishing expedition as much as anything. But we'll stick with the NUC for a bit cos we've got some. We disclosed the sponsorship a couple of stories back, but also feel the NUC is fit for purpose.
we've been up-front about the Intel sponsorship, I hope.
Think Reg innuendo - what might an "attachment" refer to? Okay, yes, we're juvenile. Part of our charm, I've been told. Occasionally.
Not quite. You can have it on-premises, but the dev work for the on-premises version is derived from work that's *already* gone into the cloud version. So the innovation is being done for the cloud version and every so often MSFT gets around to productising some of that for on-premises ops.
These puns aren't far off brutal vioLUNce. Still, it speaks volumes about Reg readers that these acronyms are getting an ironic airing. And let's face it, things could be worse. We could be making virtualisation puns. Storage puns are surely the lesser of two vVols.
Well played, Sir.
Surely not only vomit? There's got to be a back door option. Surely. Or are we full of ... never mind.
There's no category for trolling and flamebait :-(
El Reg's eye-tracker thanks you for glancing at that ad. You're now a warm lead for Vendor X. Expect a call soon.
Ooops. Maybe I've said too much.
20 internet points to Gryffindor! Top comment ;-)
Yes and no. Philae landed with fully-charged batteries. Those batteries depleted. It's not been able to recharge them since. I think that meaning is conveyed, but will tidy it up to make sure that is the case.
Yoinks! How did that happen. Scrubbed. Thanks for pointing it out.
My only excuses are broken sleep and lack of coffee.
No matter Iceland's size, to me the fact that a sovereign nation currently considers The Pirate Party the best option is notable. as someone who makes content for a living, I struggle with some of the Party's positions. But I've also read its policies in Australia and find they make mainstream political parties appear even more mealy-mouthed. Beneath the silly surface, there may be some substance
VMware can find that kinda cash behind the sofa. Add several zeroes to get to pain. But a fine idea!
Fixed that up. What I know about F1 can clearly be written on a postage stamp.
