I should stick a "the reg" sticker in the back window, if someone would send me one and take a pic of it lol
Great news, the sooner moonlight is out the better
Already have some great Silverlight in development and cant wait until the handful of users running linux also cant moan at me lol

As should supermarkets who shrink wrap bananas
Dont be such a moron! If they want to send it in 1000 boxes its up to them. You just need to decide to not buy from them
What a load of balls
There is yet again more tripe from Linux Fan boys on here!
.NET = Simple, Quick, Easy, Faster to make!
That is why people use it, features!
Yes we pay for them to Microsoft, but to be fair if someone had something as easily adoptable we'd pay them.
C++ what the f**K has that got to do with .NET? Who the hell uses managed c++, you use .NET for c# and vb.net. and condering its global update it would suggest other feel the same too.
As for linux on a desktop, 1 million pc's you say lol. Good god, thats a lot is of ASUS junk people have bought.
I could also add if you have 50 million downloads of some linux distro in a day, I bet half never get installed and the rest get uninstalled after a week lol
Why? Linux = Utter Crap for Morons with no life, unless its used where Unix/Linux should be on a server
Linux on the Desktop. you might as well fill your computer with a cow pat
Linux is as usful as a computer full of cow Manure.
If consumers had a choice at the time they purchase a computer they would go with Windows. They could go and buy a nice BSD box from apple if they wanted. But lets face it not many do.
Why? Becuase the software on these platforms is crap.
The OEM deals and the channel add value to the consumer. It prevents people taking home crap
lol oh well great network uptime
So much for a superior network when you cannot keep the power on!
Need I say SOFTLAYER at all! The Planet is run by muppets anyway
they went bust thats why they deleted everyone as their pile of pants website had such much crud on it, the db couldnt cope
for years they refused to let people leave the site lol
thats explains all these problems i keep getting with people paying and it not processing them lol
RE: Predatory prosecution
I couldn't disagree more.
Hats off the the Feds for trying to bring the sillt women to justice. If she hadnt been online playing a fool then the girl would probably be alive.
And the truth is she provided false details and she should be held accountable
RE: In the EU similar problems are solved easily
That is not the same thing, as an EU based retailer you need to charge VAT to everyone in the EU that isnt VAT registered. And where people find a loop hole they just change the law to ensure you cant do it any more. i.e. the channel islands and online purchases
RE: Andre Thenot
Aye Safari shouldnt be "given" to Windows users.
Apple = Plonkers
Vista as the source of all problems?
What a load of shit, thats balls.
Stock issues are always the problem at PC World. You go there to buy a laptop becuase you want or need one that day and its NEVER in stock. I tried 4 times last year and had to goto another store on each visit becuase it wasnt available.
Even their macs wernt in stock, the only reason I got it in another store was becuase they couldnt be arsed to stick them our on display
RE: Adam Hill
Dont talk tripe pal.
Huawei employees couldnt give a sh*t about some third rate italian ISP lol For that matter Huawei is a far larger company than tiscali is and will ever be
Its a beta isnt it?
The Register has run out of storys I take it
Tomb Raider on a VooDoo, aye I can remember it well.
Its a shit laptop with a shit keyboard, get over it.
Its hardly worth a story, who gives a damn if they keyboard is a qwerty one? It makes no sodding difference
ISPs should charge more then.
If they are making razor thin profits and this pushes them over the edge, who cares? Its their own fault for offering free services
Thank god we have at last one decent ISP.
And I for one if they do decide to fight will switch to Carphone Warehouse.
Yet I dont even share files or use P2P.
Sod BT, who on earth wants to use that junk? They are happy to sell our their customers to some adware shop, so I cannot imagine them wanting to upset their former owner!
Google should not be allowed to dominate the Internet like Microsoft dominated the desktop software market in the 90's.
FFS Mac Fan boys shut the f**k up
you go on and on and on
and yet when dear old bill gates beats you (its happended before lol) you cant take it.
OSX this day is more insecure than Windows and Linux.
Its not hard to get your head around.
For all that c**P about picking OSX becuase he wanted the mac or something, for god sake hed get $10k no matter which machine he get into.
And if I wanted to win, I'd pick the easiest box to break!
OSX Is as I've always said CACKOS
Windows XP, you cant compare that to OSX, its been replced buddy boy. And thus far its proved far more secure than OSX. So secure the latest SP even secures it against its desktop user lol.
But come on, those people that use OSX which think its safe, or safer than Linux or fully patched Vista are the kind of people that drive a french car becuase it cam with alloy wheels, or drive an Audi becuase they pals at the graphic design shop think their chic lol
CACK OS Browser on Windows
Safari is cr*p! It does a bad job displaying websites, its annoying, it crashes and above all I wouldnt have itunes on my pc in the first place.
If people are thick enough to buy an ipod or worse an iphone and have installed inoise then you deserve everything you get!
You should have bought a zune!
linux aka cack
If it had been a closed source OS then they wouldnt have known about a bug in virtual memory managment (thats not to say there wouldnt have been one elsewhere)
If people are stupid enough to go with the rubbish services provided by the likes of Tiscali, why would BT want them back.
If I were BT I'd make customers pay £300 to come back and decent a decent service.
My own thoughts are the kind of person to get caught out by this is the kind of person that is financed up to the hilt, in the coming years wont have a home let alone a telephone line. So who cares!
Why not just change ISP. Tiscalli has always been a pile of crap.
Pipex was never really that much better, I recall their prices 10 years ago and the price didnt match the service.
So why not give good old BT a call, or how about Demon? At least their service works
They have cracked!
As Steve Ballmer has been saying for years, Sun is a stupid company! To think we were once partners with them, yet since the depature of McNealy sun has gone from the odd nut case remark and action to full out mental asylum case. I suppose moving to such a HQ was forward thinking for the outfit!
Why is anyone in IT going to give up the data centre? Why is Sun better suited to running a large data centre than an IT team that actually knows its own systems?
And how can having a data centre geograpically located elsewhere be cheaper? Unless of course we're talking about current Chineese pay rates lol
I just wish Sun would do what it does best and innovate, not spout crap about some wacky idea becuase IBM is kickings its ass
I will be calling Tmobile to upgrade my web n walk package!
Comes as no suprise that TMobile is the only mobile operator that gives a shit about consumers! Seems a fair price for a decent service!
Hmm I could sort of understand using a Mac as a desktop, that might increase the level of security from the suers point of view.
But Apple servers? What is wrong with Solaris? AIX? Or even a zSeries running somethign crazy?
Wouldnt that be even more secure than some Apple server cack?
Well Virgin is anything but the Premium service provider. They now have an ace TV Channel with the junk that Sky didnt want, they have a fibre network which is run by monkeys and they have the customer service skills of a company going out of business.
pcworld has its place
pcworld has its place if you need something quick
but whos going to waste their money buying a hard disk there? if you want something just as low quality there is ebay and iots usualy half price.
oh so the computer comes with vista, big deal, theres nothing wrong with it! Its got nothing to do with PC sales.
most of the thickos that goto PCworld to buy a computer dont even know what Vista is and they arent going to object on that basis!
Perhaps people have wised up to the fact they can get a far better service at lower prices elsewhere!
yer but 1and1 costs a LOT less, and come on having a UPS that works and a power generator that they can get running isnt exactly diffucilt. They should have a backup backup generator and if they want to get their credibility back then they better go buy one soon!
And they might as well sack whoever checks the generator!
Node4 are very good in Birmingham and they despite their price tag they offer a pretty decent service.
When it comes to "opensource" I dont think anyone in their right mind can use "sun" in the same sentence
I dont see the problem!
If you give a kid to remember a library card, some will lose it, some will forget it and others will "borrow" someone else’s. Fingerprint readers in the school library are cheap, efficient and idea for saving money and making sure kids don’t lose books and forget their responsibilities to bring the books back. I remember saying when I lost a school book “I didn’t take it out” I wouldn’t have been able to say that if I had used my finger to take the thing out in the first place.
If we’re talking about using finger prints in the classroom, then doesn’t it protect the kid? I.e. if the teach is incompetent and doesn’t know the kids names, knowing a kid is who they claim to be (not covering for a mate) if going to protect everyone, including the kid.
Save with school means.
The whole argument against fingerprints in schools is based on the same principles that mobile phone masts kill. It’s called scaremongering.
