Great fellow!

Must watch: GE's smart light bulb reset process is a masterpiece... of modern techno-insanity

Garry Perez

Rimmer: Let's go to blue alert

Kryten: You certain sir, it does mean changing the light bulb switching on for for at least 5 seconds then have it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on and the bulb will flash on and off 3 times, unless we're on old firmware in which case we have to do is have the bulb off for at least 5 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 2 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 2 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 2 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds then turn it on for 8 seconds then turn it off for 2 seconds

Mind the gap: Men paid 18.6% more than women in Blighty tech sector

Garry Perez

In two minds about this.

I'm all for equal rights etc but I can't help feeling that rather than women's wages going up, we'll see men's wages going down.

Just like when pensions and insurance premiums were equalized - they didn't go down for men, but up for women.

Come to think of it was this study just gender? Surely other minorities may want these stat collated as well?

Just my thoughts, upvote/downvote as you see fit. Enjoy the weekend everyone.

It's been 50 years since those damn dirty apes took the planet by storm

Garry Perez

Interesting anectdote

I heard that the ape make up was a pain to remove so was left on during breaks. What was noticed that all the gorillas, orangutans, chimps tended to aggregate together in their own groups.

Love the original film BTW.

Microsoft now awfully pushy with Windows 10 on Win 7, 8 PCs – Reg readers hit back

Garry Perez

Dear Bill,

You and I were, if not best buddies, certainly people that got on. For 30 odd years we have had a special relationship, DOS, 3.1 WIN95/98 (cough Vista). And you know what I even told my mates how good you were. Things were sweet.

Then win 10.

F*ck you

F*ck you in the a*** with a f****** 10 inch c******r sidewards

F*ck you until you f******g f*****d up f*****d f*****s f*ck off.

I've now gone to linux Mint and will now be converting all my non-tech mates over to it.

So yeah, its not going to be the year of Linux, but y'know, we, the tech nerds support our family and friends and when we tell them to fuck windows off, you are sliding down a slippery slope.

For the record, el Reg users, I held off going to Linux for years. All I can say is what was I thinking? Mint is a fantastic piece of software and is now on my laptop and my friends. Works great and to top it off, no fucking fucked up fucked ribbon.

So one more time

I want my EPG, say Windows Media Center users left in dire straits

Media Portal- Way to Go

Used Media Centre for ages, it was once of MS best products. However over the years it has got slow (esp clicking through the guide) and just generally flaky. A couple of months ago I switched to Media Portal, and boy what a difference. Can really recommend it.
