That would be EX friends then
Re: Public Inquiry
Not over-reacting at all.
Of course, following the public enquiry, an objection will be raised as to the selection of the members of the enquiry panel.
A judicial review will then be demanded.
I'd be inclined to go for a resettable polyfuse, esepecially if the igniters are known to go S/C sometimes.
I suggest you look in a mirror mr(s) A/C
Re: My Mumsnet password
Best so far - have an upvote.
I was going to 'Meh'
But I see you've all 'Meh'd first.

"Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don't have any surface noise. I said, "Listen, mate, *life* has surface noise.""
I may steal this.
Re: Not interested.. But I am.
What is the blue ray you speak of?
Re: Who at Microsoft is making up the names... and why do they still have a job?
So when is the year of Windows on the drektop? <- that's humor, that is.
I emphatically fail to disagree with these comments.
Is this a train wreck I see before me?
Expect reports of CyberWeaponsOfMassDestruction any time now.
So many nails in the cloud coffin...
Yet still they come!
This has whiskers
I remember an article in Practical Wireless around the middle 1960s where they were modulating a neon indicator as the transmitter, and sensing with an OC71 transistor with the paint scraped off. They used car headlamp reflectors as (nearly) parabolic mirrors. This was not for data, but audio with a bandwidth of something like 10kHz.
Never did get round to trying it myself.
In principle I think they are absolutely right. Implimentation too clunky.
Just because other people are tied to their employer whether they like it or not, doesn't make it right. Everyone needs to be able to get away from work stresses if they are to lead a healthy life. You shouldn't need to fear some form of retribution if you don't answer the phone out of hours - and that is the position far too many people are in. The more connected systems become, the worse this gets.
I was thinking of transferring to the Co-op bank just before all this surfaced. Good job I didn't, but it's a great shame when an institution standing for integrity gets trashed like this.
Re: Reminds me
That's nothing. There was a report some years ago where they sent the baliffs round to a farm that was about a mile away from the nearest gas pipe! Seems like they haven't improved much.
It's a sad day when we need the Euorpean parliament to protect us... from our government
Good luck to them
What kind of time is that? It's physically impossible to set my alarm for less that 9.
Re: Re - "We are all gonna DIE ! ! !"
We know they're going to die too, hopefully after their parents, but did you have to be so brutal about it?
Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells
Re: "Windows XP is a thirteen year old operating system .." @Hans 1
Good Lord! That girlfriend of ours has the constitution of an Ox - and, it seems, the stubbornness.
Bad WD, bad.
I have considerable sympathy for ordinary users.
How are they to know any better when they have
cloud remote servers thrust at them from all angles, and the meeja strangely silent on the problems.
Business on the other hand...
Seems to me Linus has been remarkably patient and restrained. If it had been me in charge I'd be throwing things by now (not chairs though)
Hmm didn't se a launch time.
We didn't think of it first and make an exclusive deal with the highest bidder for the photo.
Re: Out of order.
Exactly my thought. Move quickly and they don't have a leg to stand on. Maybe they were hoping enough time would pass before anyone noticed for them to say 'but that was ages ago', although I'm not sure even that would save them if someone put up a detirmined fight.
About time people woke up to the risks.
Re: News at 11
Wow! Two downvotes. I didn't know that El Reg was read by the Daves
News at 11
Government ministers don't know their arse from their elbow.
Re: What's that sound ?
Quite true. You can tell because they used the prefix "Cyber"
I knew you were going to say that
If he/she/it is offended by things like that what about some of our towns and villages?
Dorking (the mildest)
Hucking (not nice)
Throcking (possibly illegal)
La La La La
So if we discourage the (reasonably) good guys from poking around for weaknesses in our 'anonymity" process it makes certain the bad guys won't have a chance of doing so.
This actually come closer to what I was thinking. Also I have known occasions where re-use of 'good' code has been a disaster because the new dev didn't properly understand it and tried to use it as-is.
I know this to be true cos it wos me!
Recycled plastic - good
Recycled code - bad
As a 'lady' famously said...
"He would say that, wouldn't he?"
So where are NSA & GCHQ when they could actually do some good?
Re: Bit of a whimp
... and then get wiped out by the far more dangerous 700V DC boost supply which has some real power behind it.
Bah. Kids today (gerroff my lawn).
Re: Ah the 7400 series ICs...
Very true. Even the 4xxx(x) CMOS series are getting are getting a bit thin on the ground
Apology in advance
Recently someone asked me the difference between Windows and an abacus. It totally threw me for a while, but the answer is quite simple really.
An abacus helps you solve problems :)
Really impressed with his restrained and cautious response.
Gives a whole new meaning to Cops & Robbers
Not so much his views, but as a person he stands well above the crowd.
I guess battery wrapping V separate unit would rather depend on the optimum profile for a supercap.
For over 10 years my work PC was the oldest one in the company.
About 6 months ago all the 'office' PCs were upgraded - for about the 3rd time. When I asked about mine, I was given one of the discarded ones.
My work PC is the oldest one in the company.
I read it through several times but think I still know just as much as I did before
Guess I won't be seeing this then
