Manchester plod still running 1,500 Windows XP machines

I've have had a web cam from 2000. The installer refused to work on any thing newer then XP. Once I modify the ini I got it to work on windows 7. No problem. It kills me that people created installers like that.

Re: Use the 10 minutes wisely

I remember HP telling that there was bug in windows XP that caused a clients computer not to go to sleep and the problem was MS fault not HP. I was thinking if that's the case then why did you send me out to replace the MB . Looking at the notes this was the third MB that was replaced for this issue. I have a feeling the HP guy was selling me a load of BS.

Developer swings DMCA sueball at foul-mouthed streamer PewDiePie

kain preacher
Silver badge

To the people that say streaming is copy right infringement you are wrong. There is a such a thing as fair use. H3H3 law suit further clarified this. As long as there is commentary, critique, parody or use on the news it's fair use. Oh and just because Nintendo does it does not make it legal. It just means no one has had the cash to go against Nintendo.

Re: there are a few tweets

Spanner the level of vitriol was sickening. Any one that dared suggested twitter had a use was down voted. That if you lost some thing on twitter it was your fucking fault. You are the product(cause its free) and you are an idiot because you should know nothing in life is free so you must be giving some thing up.

"surely medical professionals, of all people, should know that just because something fits in a cavity that doesn't mean it belongs there"

"No homophobia here please. Kindly report to your nearest re-education camp."

Um mate Why would that make you think of gay people ? Have you not read the articles on El Reg about metal rings around men's toddgers or seen the show sex sent me to the ER? There have been plenty of cases of me and women that stock things in their bodies that don't belong, but some how you read that to mean a guy guy with stuff up his bum, No my friends it's you that just might need the re education camp.

Re: Feds

"Why isn't the Justice Department investigating Larry and Company for violation of the RICO statutes"

You must not live in the US. When Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III became the head of the justice dept first thing he did was stop investigating crooked police dept and stop enforcing agreements police dept had with the DoJ. Don't expect to many companies to get investigated while he is in charge.
