Re: "A loss prevention employee..."?

Security guard is meant as an obvious deterrent. Nice bright uniform standing by the door. Were Loss prevention is either working the cams or in plain clothes tracking a person.

Re: Clarity Needed

loss prevention is what use to be called store detectives. There role is to both stop shop lifters and internal theft . Yes in place like supper markets their is a difference between the uniformed security guard you see and the plain clothes loss prevention. Most of the time the security guard is contracted out were loss prevention is a direct hire . Loss prevention is almost always plain clothes store detective .

Re: not yours

"You can certainly argue that having a legit disc copy gives you the right to do whatever you like with that disc, within reason - including, for instance, putting it into any kind of disc reader of your choice. But to claim that it gives you the right to make another copy of whatever work happens to be on that disc - is pretty much the opposite of how copyright works."

Veti in the US you have the right to make up a back up copy. section 117 of the Copyright Act.

"Your time dilation is strong. You could get a Canon LBP4 for maybe £500-£600 in around 1996. And that's over 20 years ago. It's depressing when you're thinking "I dunno - 15 years maybe?" and it turns out to be 25..."

Ahem maybe the boss bought it from a friend . wink wink nudge . Maybe the boss had a side company that was selling supplies to the company. Or just maybe he lied and spent the cash on some thing else.

Re: Did that, done that....

One better. Try a person for the love a god could not type in a simple password. You walk them through opening up note pad, type the password in and tel them to copy in paste. Only to find out you need to give them a 5 hour course on how to use the mouse and copy and paste . What's that tell them to high light and use control C and control V ? Well that's another five hour course on how to high light with the mouse and then they will swear there is no Control button. Then you tel them to hit ctrl+v and then they will insist there is no ctrlV button

Re: Er...

To the person that down voted me, you think Open source is good if you can't see the source code that is being run. How do you know what back doors are in it ? Open or closed source makes no diff if people can not see what's running under the hood.

Yeah AMD had no choice as software was just no written they way they had hoped for bulldozer. Even windows did not support them like AMD wanted . So when AMD bulldozer said it had 8 cores windows treated it like a quad core with HT

One of the reason why I picked T-mobile is because they only throttle you if you are over a 50 gigss of data AND the cell tower is congested . If you move to a non congested tower you go back to full speed.
