So that's really going to help, yes?

There used to be some really good information on the Business Link site.
Business Link has now been subsumed.
If I try to use the so-called navigation, I can't see where this information (eg An example of the terms and conditions of your website which covers the content and usage of your website.) has gone.
If I search for text that was on the page "An example of the terms and conditions of your website which covers the content and usage of your website." I can't find anything remotely related.
No more Proview...
Actually, there is no Proview - it's the Chinese banks trying to get their money back *from* Proview who will syphon off the 60mil. Apparently they will still be out of pocket, however.

Sack someone. As close to the top as you can.
Someone is responsible, and sacking the manager/person in charge is going to send a way stronger signal than squeezing their budget further.
Sadly the ICO probably doesn't have that power...

"Market-Tested VoIP Technologies
Whether you are looking at Hosted PBX or SIP Trunking service, chances are your business will need some VoIP products to run the service at peak performance. Choose from the following technologies:
IP phones are used with hosted PBX service to provide feature rich desk phones
Wireless IP phones provide total flexibility and are used with our Hosted PBX service
VoIP gateways are adapters used to connect non-IP devices such as fax, credit card, or modem devices to a VoIP phone line. They are also used to connect existing non-IP PBX phone systems to SIP trunking VoIP service.
iCloud customers benefit from full configuration and support on these products with our hosted PBX or SIP trunking services."
errrr.... and the 'cloud' element of this is what exactly? Far more likely that they'll get a bunch of hits they wouldn't have had.

There. Fixed that for you.
"...we know that we will go into that future with our *brand*, purpose and operating model intact."
WTF has a "brand" got to do with it? You're not selling soap. Reality detachment getting worse by any chance? You keep concentrating to "purpose" before you forget what it is. Or means.
If it looks to good to be true...

Actually it does this already. Although not automatically, it's true
and not with unlimited storage.
@ Alex Rose
Your condescension is appreciated.

So what they're *actually* saying is you can:
A) Use the iTunes infrastructure and pay 30% for the privilege
- OR -
B) Build your own payment/security/etc infrastructure and keep 100% yourself
I fail to see what the problem is with this - you can have it either way.
Your article seems to suggest that *only* A) is available.
...as always, thank you!
However, as any designer worth his salt will attest, the reason we don't like Comic Sans is that to our eyes, it does (for a whole catalogue of reasons I won't bore you with) look f**k ugly. If anyone reading this disagrees, that's OK. Carry on using it by all means.
But as an example everyone might warm to, it has a visual effect on some of us similar to the one people get just before they ask the question "you call THAT music"?
Why do I think this...

Right - only wants to be subjected to another media circus that HE will orchestrate. I see.

UK seems OK now....
Checked my recurring alarms yesterday and all back to normal now, here in the UK at least. "Something" is clearly tied to the US DST, since they were all screwed *before* the US change to DST.
Why write something like "unsuccessful electric kart promoter and balding sugar-daddy"?

Re: Daylight savings change and alarm issue
Posted: Nov 2, 2010 4:57 AM in response to: efcop
I just changed the date to November 8th i.e. after the US changes the time and presto it works. So it seems that although the phone's time changes correctly the alarm time seems to be linked to the US DST
I just tried doing this (I'm in the UK) and it works for me too. Looks like your analysis is correct.
So it looks like they did ALL their testing using the US daylight saving time zone and (hopefully) these problems will go away on the 8th. Except for those of us who have worked around this by setting our alarms back an hour!
Yeah - that's what I thought...
If you're using gifs or pngs, you're probably doing it because a) you want some form of transparency and (for pngs) you actually want *lossless* compression - for example fountain fades or text that is/are crisp with specific clour rendition and artifact free.
So using pngs or gifs *at* *all* as part of your experiment is null and void. What are the figures without those types? Oh, not so good eh? I see...
By creating lists like these, we divide society.
The lists can never be long enough for those not on them.
By these means we tie ourselves in knots
and set one against the other.
Lacking true compassion,
we substitute rules and regulations,
I simply don't believe this...
>Devon and Cornwall Police...

I simply don't believe this - they don't know where they are? So if there is an incident
in a given area, how do they know where the recognition comes from?
Not telling us is one thing, lying like this is another!

"We don’t allow age callouts under any circumstance."
errr - so why did they constantly offer me dating services based on my Facebook age (Unix timestamp 0 birthday, in case you're interested - prob not!) then? Although only in French when I was living in France. Maybe another part of their linguistic challengement.
*sigh* This is all a warning of things to come if he doesn't shut the *f* up. The usual modus operandi is for some "crazy drunk" or similar to kill him and then get arrested and commit suicide or similar.
The phrase "head above the parapet" comes to mind. None of this is very nice, but anyone who thinks the world isn't like this is living in cloud cuckoo land. And no, I don't approve of any of it.
