I was just wondering if Steve Ballmer threw any when he heard the news.
They managed to get blockchain in there. I head the words but utterly failed to understand what they meant (likely nothing?)
mines the one with the free glass of Cava in it.
Me thinks you mean that Newton was a pioneer in Astronomy.
Upvoted and have a beer (electronic one only I am afraid).
Since the orange strumpet is so keen on building walls why shouldn't he have one build round Washington DC?
I used to be a Solaris admin. Now I am a linux admin in a red hat shop. Sun was bought by Oracle and more or less died a death. Will the same happen now? I know that Sun and RH are _very_ differeht beasts but I am thinking that now is the time to stop playing on the merry go round called systems administration.
OT but I used to call our West Pond brethren this until a friend explained what it was. This friend knew a young lady who suffered from alopceia of the nether regions and resorted to a merkin.
Pikiwedia because it must be true.
Every group of young people are what the world is coming to. We are of course all doomed - to be grumpy old gits who go on about how it was much better "when I were young. blah blah blah'. I write this as an IT professional who doesn't get this social media stuff.
Look for someone with a table nailed to their head!
You had better not hope that. They will evolve into a charming whimsical bunch of raving psychopaths who will seek to wipe out all life in the universe as it doesn't fit in their view.
Beer (best Sapporo) for the boffins though.
"So nuclear pasta is in another league compared to our planet's materials. It's like comparing parsecs to kilometres."
So how does this relate the Kessel run?
Mine is the one that will make .5 past light speed. And, sorry, it had to be done.
I shouldn't bite and others have responded more effectively than I can to your allegations. All I will add is that one anecdote does not a trend make. Whether the story about your sister is true or not you cannot extrapolate her alleged behaviour to all women in the workforce.
Or those who spend their time commenting on Reg stories about problems in Redmond.
Mines the one with a linux usb iso in the pocket.
I look after a part of this at work (Radius infrastructure) and it is not trivial. I can't see being able to get an entire AAA system on home routers being a goer for reasons people have outlined above. BT struggles to get a stable NAT and firewall on their hubs after all.
The principle sounds like a good one though if manufacturers can be persuaded to go along. I think that this might be an area for legislation though. Manufacturers could then be compelled to put a standards compliant authentication system in their toys and also be prevented from using it to harvest/sell personal data.
I make no comment about an internet connected fridge though.
In my final year at uni I had an Atari ST on which I wrote my dissertation. I then lent it to a friend to write hers. She had trouble saving it to the floppy disk so I went over to help. It said the disk was full so I grabbed another disk at random and saved dissert.doc on there. Just as the floppy kicked into gear I realised that it had my dissertation on it and it was called dissert.doc. Cue lots of panic and visions of having to rewrite the whole thing in three days. Then I realised that Atari created a copy called file.bak and was able to recover mine from there. It was a short but sharp brown underpants stuff and I don't think that my friend really twigged how serious it was.
>I didn't know Amber Rudd wrote for El Reg?
But she would understand it all even less than she does if that is possible. "Someone needs to get control of the octothorpes!"
My bullshitometer just exploded!
That picture is just gross.
I have no idea if 5G will be a good thing either.
You sir, owe me a new keyboard!
But I thought the media were actually the illuminati!
I worked for a local authority once. We had two V880s next to each other. One of them needed a patch and after installing it the reboot was taking ages for some reason, it had a lot of hardware to do a POST on, so some mug decided to reset it. You held the power button in for five seconds or so and it would go donk. All the disks were quiesced so what could go wrong?
Trouble was I hit the button on the housing management rather than the payroll. Cue a whole department wondering what had happened.
This was the days before strict change control so I got away with it by grovelling to the application lead who just laughed!
I have never understood why ameriplods feel the need to put mugshots of everyone they pinch on the intertubes for all and sundry (in this case sundry) to see.
Cany any stateside commentards enlighten?
Beer as over indulgence in said beverage could lead to you becoming a victim of these turds.
Assuming that further investigation finds that a senior bod in the CPS has to face criminal proceedings. Will they sign off on their own prosecution?
It is oddly difficult to not use social media. I deleted my facething just before the Cambridge Analytica thing hit the mainstream. But, here at work, they are saying that social media is an excellent way of staying in touch with the users and we should be expanding it's use. Are they going to hoover up all the intellectual property of said university? Am I going to have to reactivate my facething just so I can tell a user that I have patched their server, or rather that puppet has.
Does that make me a sheeple?
Also, no one seems to be getting exercised about what Google is doing with all the data that people hand over to them.
I know that I don't have the answers I just hope that cleverer people than me come up with some.
What happens when you get stood up at your stand up meeting?
It is too warm at the moment but I'll get mine.
Plus one for the invite though I doubt I'll be making it there this year. Sounds like a fun event.
I am sure any member of the said club would keep an eye out for it.
Cool story though. SPB project for the future?

Thankfully my brother provides all the user support to my Mother. My wifes though. They live in Jamaica and are probably the only ones in their family to have broadband. Explaining across the Atlantic that you have to patch it when she struggles to correlate the movement of the mouse with the movement of the funny little arrow on the screen.
The Windrush generation were never taught to type so getting an email sent takes quite a while as well. Sadly, the broadband provider in Jamaica has decided to jack their prices through the roof now and it is not in use at all. That will be something else to fix next time we go down there.
Penguin because I have always had her on ubuntu. Still I will look forward to the rum punch.
How am I supposed to maintain the my schoolfriends and I were the privileged elite who knew about Douglas Adams when the rest of the world were in ignorance of his genius.
Anyway all this talk about cloud compute is just pie in the sky if you ask me.
I can sort of see the bad logic to this. If you know that the person at the top is on the take. Getting rid of them is going to be expensive and might fail given that they can probably afford good (read bent) lawyers who may make the whole thing fail anyway. Better to cut your losses and only cost the taxpayer a severance package rather than have them fleece the taxpayer of even more in the long run.
I am not saying it is right and the fact that underlings wind up getting shat on is adding insult to the theft of taxpayer money.
It must be a struggle remembering that the zip is on the other side.
I can't wait till Google and the technology in search of a use known as twitter are caught with their electronic pants down as well.
Beer because I deleted my facefail recently though I know that means sweet f/a to their owning me.
On one of my very few lapses from being a bad veggie I had a chicken kebab and it was revolting. The PFY must have been in a serious bender to stomach one of those.
You beat me to it. I wondered if it was for when the pilot and co-pilot had had a row. Bit like couples in catamarans!
I should like to nominate this person for flame of the week.
Beer for the weekend and getting hammered seems the best thing to do in these interesting times.
They are being generated by Hoolovoos - superintelligent shades of the colour blue having sex.
Just looked at it (icognito as I don't want them to know I look at such web nasties) and it has a green padlock.
Clearly someone in CCHQ reads the Reg.
Scott got it wrong on this one.
The cleaner should have said:
¿Esta trbajando tan tarde otra vez Alice?
Where I worked we had a thing called Symian as I remember. It was hideous but better than pine which the students were expected to use. I noticed recently that you can still get Alpine on linux these days for the die hards!
Beer because of it being the last week before the Christmas bacchanalia.
I am sure that they are thinking that if the Zuck can do it why shouldn't they.
Beer because the notworks team are having theirs but i can't go.
Perhaps it is the alien object that talks to humback whales. Just as well they haven't been hunted to extinction.
read through all the comments here and hear them all in a broad glaswegian voice?
Seriously OT but as a cruiser, six knots is flying in my Rival but we did average four knots across the Atlantic. I must try a racing cat one of these days.
Ha! I read Tintin - Explorers On The Moon so I get the job first!
or chkdisk I suppose.
Treeza and The Ruddlet won't like that.
"folk who are doggy already"
Are you suggesting that His Orangeness is given to casual sex in parks?
Or perhaps it is that he pants a lot and is given to licking his balls?
