Re: I'll probably hang on a while to see how it shakes out
Have you looked here :-
Feel like you're being herded onto Windows 10? You should
There is also a version of Mint that uses KDE as a desktop.
This might be more familiar since this is closer (on the surface) to the W95 et al style desktop.
There are also quite a few other distributions that have KDE as default desktop.
No, I got an Samsung Galaxy S2 to replace my HTC Desire, and a second one a little later (long story), gave me nothing but pure love for the device, which I also had when I owned Nokia phones. Now I'm on my second S2 and I have nothing but good things to say about them.
In my circle of friends, family and work colleagues, getting highly annoyed with an iPhone seems to be a common occurrence, they all got Androids because of their bad experiences, not to show off.
Re: A multi-platform world?
We HAD a multi-platform world, until Gates came along and did his best to bury it.
So you could say that he set computing back by 40 years, and a bit, since we still don't have the diversity we had, although we are approaching it.
Re: Planet Rock is not on FM
Yes, but that is a quite recent development.
I could be mistaken, but I think that was one of the things Bauer Media changed shortly after they took over Planet Rock.
Upvote for the excellent B5 Z reference.
Have you logged the problems in the bug tracker ?
I thought things couldn't get worse when T-Mobile was subsumed by Orange, but they did :(
I have major history with BT, every single thing they've ever done for me, they've managed to screw up, so you can imagine my despair when I heard that they were taking over EE.
I just wish we had proper alternatives, and a regulator with teeth, sigh.
Re: Since I have no desire to do the job...
I have an alternative to your No.1
Select the MPs by something similar to the way jury service is done.
We surely couldn't end up with anything worse than the current shower.
Oh, and anyone who says they'd love the job is automatically disqualified.
A real alternative
Built from scratch by a number of dedicated devs, owes nothing to any browser mentioned here.

@ Anonymous Coward
Unfortunately for you, Daddies is now one of HP's brands :(
So if you want to be HP free, then Branston, Hammonds, or Heinz should be your choice.
Re: More than a coincidence?
What is the computer please ?
I can think of a few candidates, but none of them particularly likely.
Re: The difference
A few things you may not know about :-

Rings, not a single ring ?
Come back Louis Wu, all is forgiven.
Have you tried Netsurf ?
Re: Support is impossible
Just before anyone gets confused, no, the above isn't me, I recommend Mint, Kubuntu(LTS), OpenSUSE, and if you must, Win 7 Pro 64.
Re: Well that's just great news!
That doesn't actually stop them from actually taking the amount up to a week before it is due (or before the date they have just notified you of).
Happened to me several times.
Re: Well I never
Well that's crossed it off my Christmas list :(
Why oh why did they have to use a POS intel proc.
Well I never
It's an Android tablet !
Re: Start with the basics
HSBC retired the RSA tokens, and replaced them by a device the size of a small calculator which you have to use the keys to enter a PIN, before it will generate the 'random' number to enter into the form on the website.
I have to have 2 because they couldn't make two different accounts work with the same device.
Re: Technics SL-1210's
Only fit for home use.
Unless you had some rather large concrete blocks to stand them on.
Don't think I ever came across something with such poor acoustic decoupling.
Utterly useless for live use with a decent size PA.
Re: Wot - No LP12?
Slightly off track, has anyone heard of a source for the drive belt for the Connoisseur (SP?) BD1 ?
Let the downvotes commence
Re: A hole in the LHC's vacuum bubble safety argument
Magnetic monopoles ruled out ? Brennan not best pleased.
Re: Yeah that's what Linux was missing!
How about 6TB (2 £TB disks) as 1 virtual disk with XFS on top.
I could only find a command line solution (complete with errors :( ),
so it became a suck it & see.
Why did I need all that disk space - for a new MythTV box I built, because the old one (with 2TB) ran out of space so often, I became utterly fed up up with trying to work out what I could delete next.
No SD card slot !
Following HTC's lead I see :(
Re: WP8 "driving mode"
For everyone else there is DriveSafe.ly
Re: 3G service
3G coverage, huh, what about delivering enough signal everywhere in the UK, so that the phones don't flatten their batteries just trying to enable voice calls. All of the operators, I'm looking at you, don't ignore your customers when they tell you there's an issue, and don't LIE when responding.
Re: If you don't like Heathrow T5...
Ah, Aberdeen, yes, unless it snows :)
Re: "...where we don’t yet have any recommendations to make from your history"
You want an alternative ?
Try NetSurf, currently V3.1, with nightly builds for those who like living on the edge.
No, it doesn't do everything the major browsers do, but if you can code in C, the devs will be happy to talk to you.
Re: Skills shortage is at the hiring end.
Unless you've passed retiring age, you're NEVER too old, & probably not then either :)
Quiz list for you to answer, here, or to yourself.
Where do you live ?
Are you prepared to travel as far as 200 miles, or further for a role ?
Are you prepared to stay away for 1 week, 2 weeks, or 4 weeks as required ?
Will you accept short term, i.e. 1 month, 3 months, or 6 months long contracts ?
If the answer to those is yes, then put your CV on Jobserve, & Jobsite, and create a Linked-In profile.
Start applying for jobs, don't use the bulk apply, don't bother with cover letters.
There is plenty of stuff out there, this week I have had a dozen or so roles offered, with the stand-out one paying 380GBP per day, and on my home doorstep.
Re: Dual SIM
Apple & Samsung neglect the dual SIM market ?
Samsung don't - GT-B5722, 7722, & later models
Apple couldn't care less - buy two devices is their answer.
Re: I can buy such an ARM chip right now.
Would you like to enlighten everybody on what you've bought please ?
A hyperlink or two would be nice as well.
If there are good bits to X86 architecture, where are they hiding please ?
Re: App Permission
Thank you for this pointer, unless I'm mistaken, this is the one by Scott M.
But Intel HAD an ARM licence. They inherited it from DEC, along with DEC's StrongARM, but Intel didn't like advertising a competitors' product, so they called their fabbed version X-scale.
Unfortunately for Intel, the first few iterations were much worse performance than DEC's, so there was a drift away of users (not end users) to other ARM licensees, and Intel eventually sold off the division.
I think it's called Marvel now, BICBW.
The story is much more complex than that, but I think I've covered the essential bits.
I doubt that ARM would sell out to Intel, not in their shareholders' best interests.
Re: Not just local disks
Have you found the culprit, who clicked on the attachment, yet ?
Or is there now a new way of auto-running attachments, by simply pre-viewing the email ?
Never gonna happen.
Check out https://www.riscosopen.org/content/sales/risc-os-usb-sticks
for an emulated version that runs on your OS of choice.
Or buy a Pi.
Is there any third party evidence that it's real ?
FireEye don't seem interested in allowing comments on their blog, nor posting information on the apps that were removed.
Re: To avoid the problem altogether...
Search for NetSurf
No Firefox users
Doesn't work with Firefox either.
I signed up for a live.com account long ago (with Firefox), and used it to download an eval of server2012, so I know it works.
Re: Old Virus - Rapport a joke
It insisted I ought to install it ... on an ARM based Chromebook !
Re: Lee D
Re: WTF is NSFW ?
Just in case you were serious, though I doubt it.
Not Suitable For Work
Re: Curvy screen... why?
More importantly, it can't be hung on a wall.
Why ever not ?
Re: Prescient much?
Argh ... my head's spinning, the bolt's come out, you beat me to it :(
Re: There is nothing wrong with KDE
Haven't tried a recent KDE release, does it still have the stupidity with default 'all-white' icons ?
