Lucas weren't called the Princes of Darkness for nothing you know.
Of the top of my head stuff that gets grandfathered into an upgrade.
Windows Media Player
Windows Movie Maker & the other programs in the Windows Live bundle
Windows Media Centre
SkiFree32 (I may have installed that myself)
Most of this stuff has also been removed from public view on the MS website
And it as far as I can tell it leaves the Windows XP VM that XP Mode uses but uninstalls Windows Virtual PC
Oracle certainly have the offensive bit right down, but I think they need to work on the charm bit of charm offensive.
But seriously of all the software over the years that has used OpenSSL, has anyone ever actually done that? No, just a section in the documentation and a page on the website.
I don't see why people have this thing about advertising clauses. Is it REALLY that onerous to have a section in your documentation & a link from your about box listing all the software you used & their licensing?
397680 minutes remaining. Just checked the sceenshot I did (about 276 days). About 15 years ago, at home, copying something to an extremely slow external HDD over USB (HDD supported Firewire but computer didn't).
Great minds think alike!
It will probably just connect automatically to next door's BT wifi hotspot
At least in the UK, Netflix has a remarkably crap selection of movies and an awful UI. It reminds me of visiting a crappy video rental place in the 80's, they probably have a couple of good movies, but you get cheesed of by the mountain of crap & the clerk's attitude long before you find them.
Isn't Slurp another term for The Chocolate Factory, not Microsoft?
Was that a "Do Scanners Live in Vain" reference?
Considering how infatuated this government is with American so-called "tech" companies, that wouldn't surprise me.
You really have to wonder what sort of numpty mistakes a gap below the drive for the slot with the recess in the middle and a large lever over it? not to mention the flashing light above it?
IIRC John Major is the idiot who introduced PFI.
That certainly explains why the maps on Garmin's consumer GPS's are slightly pants
And they can sell them off for scrap, just like they did with the Royal Charles. Everybody wins!
As MyBackDoor pointed out, Slurp didn't try writing a better browser until Mozilla proved it could be done and started eating into IE's market share. You may remeber Firefox? And Chrome may not have succeed as well as it did if Mozilla hadn't dropped the ball on Firefox & then attempted to turn it into a Chrome clone.
If you read the EULA for Java you will see you are specifically prohibited from writing control software for nuclear reactors with it. I wonder why they felt necessary to specifically state that?
A small but significant number of Wikipedia references I have checked are to random blog posts that themselves are either just a copy & past of the Wikipedia article, or reference it. It's fairly clear that whoever inserted the references just googled & used a couple random results without actually reading them.
>He design's the stuff, I'm sure they'll be some chemical-paint-engineer who decides what paint is used.
And some suit who decides that the proper coating is too expensive or doesn't suit their vision and to use something else.
I'm starting to think Bannon and Pence are Apocalyptic Christians of the sort who think it's their duty to ensure the End of Days.
Isn't it past time to start using Neo-Nazi instead of Alt-Right?
It's from The Ring of the Nibelung, so less than 100, actually
What! Assenage back pedelling? Whell I never!
I'd be more more impressed if Assenage had agreed to be interviewed by the Swedish police. Good news about Manning, though.
IIRC thats a result of the companies like 3M with their company towns & paying in scrip with was only accepted by their stores, which often wouldn't accept US currency.
It's would be interesting to know just how many of the ac's defending the indefensible have russian ip addresses.
Submitted my thoughts about Section 40 several days ago. I doubt it will change anything, but I also doubt that Section 40 will withstand serious legal challenges.
""Can you imagine Windows 95 going at the speed of today's hardware?"
Trinity, you mean. Modern KDE is slightly bloated compared to KDE 3, although slightly more usable IMO.
Why not just install a different distro with less obnoxious devs and install a desktop or window manager that works, like XFCE, LXDE, KDE, GNOME, Cinnamon, RatPoison, FluxBox, Enlightentment, ROX etc etc etc?
The 45 would work if the MoD & BAE hadn't under-specced the intercoolers for the turbines
Is that you, amanfrommars? haven't heard from you in a while.
The People's Daily Mail
My electricity meter is right next to the gas, which gets read at least 3 times a year, usually more. I'm lucky if the electricity gets read yearly. Same company, of course.
To be fair, people have had 30 years to get used to hating Microsoft. Google has only been hateable for 10 or so years, luckily I got an early start.
So pretty much as it was, with less vandalism?
Ah, it was a rogue cell or splinter group then?
Unless the update irrevocably corrupted the HDD's I don't think so
You must have been in a bare X session or TWM if you couldn't lock the screen, GNOME, KDE, XFCE, all the major desktops (and many of the window managers) have some obvious way of doing that.
Playing MP3's hasn't been a problem on any distro for years, even Debian does it out the box these day's. All Distros come with a word processor (usually LibreOffice these days) capable of reading Office files (except particularly complex Excel files and some of the weirder Word files that Word often has issues with), and it's usually installed out the box.
I can only assume that your experiences were on a rather bare bones installation of Debian about 2003 and you have assumed that all distros were like that and that Linux hasn't changed.
Ask Blizzard? Reallly? did they implement offline single player & LAN multiplayer while no-one was looking?
FYROM is an awesome name. Sounds like it should be a morally ambiguous organisation with a fleet of mechas and not enough government oversight. As Vaclav Haval said, Czechia sounds like a supermarket.
Not just Telewest, NTHELL remember. 2 remarkably crap companies, even more crap after the rebranding
I was under the impression that NThelL licenced the Virgin brand and the only connection he had was gurning in the ads
Well, I'm not in IT any more, but despite the death threats still occasionally get called on to fix relatives computers. The first thing I do is install uBlock Origin. I imagine a lot of techie types do this, whether it's uBlock or Adblock Plus
Yup, back when they released 2.0 with the option to disable ads unchecked . there was a massive shitstorm so they backtracked and released 2.0.1 (IIRC) with the option enabled by default and a screen explaining the acceptable ads policy on install (which seems to have disappeared).
Obligatory "Thanks Obama" comment
Yeah, he seems like of a more palatable version of Drumpf. I imagine the Republicans will go with him next presidential election, God help us.
