"PCs have simply become so good that they don't currently need to be replaced"
I agree with your general point if not the exact reason. The hardware has progressed to the point that the software most of us use doesn't force an upgrade quite so often.
Apart from us gamers that is. There's always more triangles.
Banking industry are nothing compared to Insurance for legacy
having worked for a few years in one of the biggest insurer's IT department I can tell you that the banks don't even come close in the "piles and piles of legacy" stakes
mmmm CICS/COBOL. Job for life tbh.
could you rewrite without using the word cloud please
Can the register, as a publication aimed at those with a clue, avoid the nonsense word Cloud?
Hell on earth
"There was a time when Macs were a small part of the Google fleet, but as of now if you start at Google and want to use a platform other than Mac you have to make a business case," says Clay.
I mean, oh my god, can you imagine a worse or deeper hell?
total sense of humour failure on a epic scale there
that most are designed by medical practitioners, teachers and researchers, who don't ...
...know jack shit.
Blocking GitHub was the best thing they ever did
In. Store. Two. Words. No-need to-hyphenate all-your-words.
Move faster I'm waiting for my order!!
Yes. In fact the PS3 was the only BlueRay player available at the time that fully implemented the spec.
But who could buy anything from SCEE now? We know Sony hates us. Years of experience have taught us this.
1% failure rate?
They seem to suggest this is not appallingly bad!
" Such a principle would lead to the absurd result of allowing the patenting the computerized use of even the most basic abstract ideas"
Right, who's going to tell her? This is exactly what we have now... scroll and bounce anyone?
what does it get on LinPack?
Anyway, "server replacement"? An Amazon EC2 instance doesn't weigh anything...
Why sneak in the apple advert at the end?
Your job relies on the lack of availability of the above. If such as thing existed you would find it only in use in India, as quickly real professionals such as yourself would be burnt in favour of cheap idiots.
Purchased. He bought it. Some muppets might believe they can "license" use and enforce their silly EULA. But they are mistaken. What they CAN do is attempt to prevent you from using services. But this is always based on a unique id, and as you purchased the system you can always change this id via enough know how and effort.
Us "super traditionalists" use MSPaint frankly.
Re: BT continual renaming of products and overly complex website.
Shite- is already taken by Crapple, shame for BT.
Re: Find the odd thing out
"built with the money he should have been giving to his illegitimate children" fixed that for you.
Someone burn the place down would they?
ignore the twat. go to the beach anyway. You've all got guns anyway, have a shoot out about it.
Re: Nomenclature for those who use
Wrong! "They" are just parts of the software that has yet to be written. They'll be automated out of the building eventually.
And, personally, "non-technical" is my most damning insult.
Re: Not just a US problem
"However, lots of TCS / Infosys / Wipro employees come over on short term visas and are definitely not paid market rates."
Yes well you get what you pay for.
"We criticise Apple a lot on The Register, they have at least started to reverse the trend with their higher cost MacPro and iMacs."
Nonsense. They are amongst the worst offenders.
Bought a brand new car just 2 months ago. Does it have DAB? Of course not, no cars ship with DAB.
omg these evil scumbags.
As much as I hate Crapple...
...and everything and everyone with any hint of association to them such as owning any of their products...
...this is not their fault or anything to do with the platform. This is HTTP and this is not a "vulnerability" in any specific application. Why would i need to 301 the original request anyway - if I have already Man-in-Middled you then there are far more effective things I can do.
This used to happen weekly back at Accenture, and always made much worse by the poorly trained muppets they use to write the code out in countries to stay nameless.
They exist to provide a handy embezzlement mechanism, hence all the billions sent to them to be spent with no accountability. Very useful indeed for siphoning public money off into your bank accounts.
Hmm maybe this should have been anonymous....
Re: "having a computer requires a TV licence"
Also, if you have a TV capture card this requires a license regardless of its use.
... screwed over, sold to sky, price doubles, quality plummets.
anyone know who they are?
Re: @LDS (was: Yes, Word is the worst word processor....)
@jake text input != word processing
"The software is hosted on Github and might be available to download if its up."
Fixed it for you.
While I read much in this article I see in myself, I have never liked the labeling used here. I don't have a syndrome, I don't believe such things exist. I am different to you, and others are different again. What is the norm from which I deviate?
Re: One question not covered
Your point seems to be equivalent to "...bad workman...". You miss the fact that we have plenty of tools that do the same thing and, helpfully, ARE NOT POORLY DESIGNED SHITE.
surely this guy is due more than 2m? I'd say he's due Crapple's total bottom line for the last decade.
They've broken the strategy map and broken the tactical battles :(
Medieval Total War 1 still pinnacle of series
There are plenty of old cracked versions out there.
Seems like life is NintendoHard
if the cleaners go on strike how will we tell? I mean its totally filthy with them allegedly working
