Maybe the ubiquity will mitigate the long-term risks, after all, if everyone's doing it, what's to be embarrassed about? If the novelty wears off maybe passing them around will become pase.

Love it, Gok Wan eat your heart out!
> ten per cent of those questioned had sent pictures of themselves naked,
> while 17 per cent had passed on such photographs without permission,
Is that 17 percent of the total or 17 percent of the 10 percent? I suppose it is possible for more people to pass them around than to send them.
Re: First Three Posts
1) Lag from a long cable? LMFAO or whatever it is the kids say these days. Apparently you can use up to about 45 feet without an amplifier.
2) Agree, you might as well get a long HDMI cable.
3) I'm not 100% sure that this device does audio, but the article is titled AV and HDMI does audio.
From Kingston's own site:
64GB, 128GB – Up to 100MB/sec. read; 70MB/sec. write
40GB – Up to 170MB/sec. read; 40MB/sec. write
Sequential Read Throughput – 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB - 220MB/s
Sequential Write Throughput – 64GB - 140MB/s, 128GB - 170MB/s, 256GB - 180MB/s
and benchmarkreviews.com reckons that even 150 MB/s write is slow.
64gig A Better Option?
> the write speed is very low as you can see when you compare the 40GB drive with other members of the Kingston SSDNow V series
With the 64gig SSDNow V at £100 (ie, £1.56 per gig vs £1.75 for the 40gig) wouldn't this make the 64gig a much better bet?
> "a bug that has been fixed."
It's not a feature it's a bug!
Oh Thank God
It's about bloody time.
You know how we're always told to use different passwords for different sites, etc? Doesn't the whole one login thing mean that not only are we using the same password for every site, but also the same user name.
Easier to change I suppose.
I've upgraded two machines, one was flawless and one had the kernel issue you mentioned, which is actually a minor bug, apparently actually caused by grub1/2 issues, fixed by reinstalling grub2:
This is a bit one sided, just like the BBC's article, you don't have to read much of the blog to get some idea of the situation*, obviously I'm not saying take it as read, but you could do some follow up.
* The situation apparently being several serious conflicts of interests.
Re: I Want....
I was looking forward to ditching streaming on my iPhone when I got an HTC with a radio. Unfortunately I've found that phone and radio signal drop out at the same time on trains :(
Kind of obvious when you think about it.
I don't know...
MS's strategy of letting users slowly get used to Windows 7 and allowing a lot of leaks has meant that there would never be a big bang on release day, and I think after the perceived fail of Vista people didn't want to expose themselves to possible disappointment. I think there was excitement over the Vista release and I think there will be excitement over further MS releases.
All this from a Linux user.
Does this mean...
I remember reading articles in the Register when iPlayer was first developed saying that the amount of money spent developing a flash player was ridiculous. Does this interest mean it's actually quite good?
The bit about the doctor not being allowed to mention it is ridiculous, being over weight is bad for your health (ie expensive for the NHS and the rest of us) and is something you can change. I wouldn't have thought there was much argument over that. It'll be smokers next :)
Should have read the fucking article *before* commenting.
Comment and Response
I tried to leave this comment on the post:
You are insane, there’s no such thing as witches.
Did it occur to you that the “blood” is far more likely to be paint or rust?
and just received this reply by email:
May the one true living God bless you Jamie and all Australians with His Saving Truth and Everlasting Love! (John 3:16-21)
We at Catch the Fire Ministries will keep praying for you Jamie and all Australians to believe the Bible (Word of God) as the mighty Voice from Heaven that calls, “I died on the cross for you and rose from the dead to save you from eternal death, hell and destruction! Repent of your unbelief / doubt and surrender your life (past, present and future) to Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord before it is too late!”
Time is running out as we will soon stand before Him face to face as our Final Judge! (Revelation 20:11-15)
Say, 'Yes to Jesus, Yes to Heaven Forever!'
Say, 'No to Jesus, Yes to Hell Forever!'
Make the Right Choice Australia, Your Eternal Future Depends On It!
I would like to point out that I am not Australian.
That's 8 1/2 stone or 54.4 kg for the rest of the world.
Re: Helpdesk fools
There is one exception to this: O2 Broadband, don't know whether it's a hangover from Be Unlimited, but their mobile help line is awful, twice I've had the representative tell me that they do not know what to do.
From a Friend
The best one I've had was at my last company where I wasn't even on the helpdesk.
One of the account managers I worked for was complaining she couldn't see her laptop directories on the network.
Asked where the laptop was to inspect it she said she'd forgotten to bring it to work & had left it in her hallway at home!!!
The company I work for supplies bespoke software to local government. I took a call once from a guy asking me how he could create an auto-run CD, he went on to describe his IT department in disparaging terms and was very flattering about us.
A less favourite call involved about an hours investigation before I managed to get out of the caller that that morning they'd had a power cut.
And my favourite bug report:
Who would believe a user who said that OpenOffice would not print on Tuesdays?
"According to Adobe...the current version 10 has achieved 93% penetration. Riastats.com shows a more modest 81% for Flash Player 10, but it remains well ahead of rival runtimes such as Microsoft Silverlight and Sun Java."
riastats.com says that 81% of flash installs are version 10, but does not (seem to) say what percentage of all browsers have flash 10 installed, nor compare install base to Silverlight or Java.
"The company doesn't say how far the carrying Hercules transport plane was from the target vehicle in the vid, but there's no audible engine noise on the soundtrack, suggesting that it was some distance off."
Did they say that it was flying? I'm imagining it sitting right next to the ve-hickle
Re: So old hat
> Once saw a bloke doing this with a mirror in the middle of new york - 20 odd years ago.
There is a shop in Brighton that sells walking sticks with wing mirrors towards the bottom, so to speak.
> It'll be watches next.
erm, crawling about on the floor to get the right angle might make it a bit obvious.
The Reg Writer will be able to go out with his wife as that will presumably be between 6pm and 2am. I'm not sure what happens before or after this period which means that others cannot be trusted with your children.
Where does the £5,000 come from and where does it go? Presumably from one tax payer funded department to another, taxing Paul, fining Peter and paying.... Peter perhaps?
