You didn't miss anything
And what you call it if someone stole or destroyed all those lawn protection devices. Shirley it must be called GardenGate...
It's taken the poor bastard more than a week to come up with a lame excuse like this ?
Obviously being rich, which I presume most of the board members are, has no bearing on being intelligent or imaginative.
When the monkey was on top of the car it must have been a very stressful situation for passers-by.. How would they know who was actually in charge, the being on the roof or the being behind the wheel ?
Not an easy situation to judge....They are both primates, with equal intelligence, although one of them might be seriously overweight and a lot slower than the other.
"these doomsday preppers will die with the rest of us."
Thay can't die they are prepared for all possible outcomes whether they may be : Zombie Rampage, Alien Infestation or worse Mark Zuckerberg becoming King of the World.....
Dear Mr Miscavige,
I doubt very much that you will believe this but we have found Xenu..
PS : I watched the HBO "Going Clear" report yesterday.....very interesting understanding how these scams work.
That's a lot of phone calls to make, are you sure that 332 Million people really got their ass kicked, or is this just scaremongering headlines for the El Reg reasdership.
This is an old scam and those indian call center people can be convincing to the non-tech savvy... they are also extremely agressive, warn your parents, family and friends not to accept tech calls from "anyone"....
Yes, it's very ironic but this public figure is an amazingly unloved character. In my opinion he symbolizes a lot of what is wrong with the media today.
* A commercial singer with what became a commercial band and basically sings commercial songs for purely financial gain - no integrity.
* Extremely difficult to believe that anything that he says has actually any honesty attached to it.
* No modesty.
* Lives in a world of luxury but would like us to believe that he understands what it is to be poor and hungry.. Bono, Ireland is not a third world country, please do not confuse the two.
If Bono want's to do something good for society all he has to do is find a very, very remote island, that has no outgoing communications or media facilities, and remain there for a very, very long time. It would already relieve a lot of world tension.
Chrome : ctrl+shift+n
IE : ctrl+shift+p
Also create shortcuts to start automatically in private mode:
IE add the "-private" switch to a shortcut
Chrome add the "-incognito" switch to a shortcut
Et voila, that should probably be the solution to the future "Spy in the Sky" APIs... Don't quote me on that though
There is definately some soft porn for everyone in GOT... Gay, Lesbien, SM, sodomy, rape, incest, orgies, prostitution, blood, gore, snuff, creepy, mad shit, great stuff, keep it "coming". All that's missing are the animal scenes....
Honestly though, it's quite a good series but it is starting to draw out, hopefully the next one is the last one...
( Never read the books but I presume that they are even better, usually they are).
If that giant ant floated I would take it along with that fantastic looking bath.
Fortunately half of the planet will not be up to date about who actually drank some Starbucks this morning... and with a bit of luck they might have actually got some of their sanity back.
All it has to do us charge for each ip address holder that uses a netmask below a given value...Thereby keeping it free for smallish businesses using smaller ranges.
No-one is safe :
Obviously that would be the Great Firewall of China then... ( queue drum roll and cymbal crash)
Seems like there are at least 2 people whose sense of political satire is on the low side for the moment...
I think it was Obama that done it.
>So the thumbs down is from someone who thinks violence to kids is OK?
No, and the world is not a dichotomy either.
Yes, I considered the boxed versions but then thought that it was highly unlikely that these boxes would have been given to the PC recycling firm but it could be possible.
"Often the COA is attached to the side of the chassis by means of a label. This is quite common on Dell and HP systems."
Personally I have never seen Dell or HP stick MS Office stickers on the side of a PC, are you sure that you mean Office and not Windows.
( That doesn't mean to say that it doesn't exist, it's just that I have never seen it)
I imagine that MS have no way of knowing which licences passed through the hands of these guys. I would also presume that a fair amount of estimation was involved to arrive at 70000 or are there other techniques which we are not aware of, if so what are they.
I would also like to know how they got the licence keys because they are generally not visible after installation. I know that Jelly Bean used to be a method but I am unaware if it still works..
Why would I want to know : Simple, it is always interesting to see how the criminal mind works, you do not have to be a genius to be ingenious.,
(Hint : Don't search for/download Jelly Bean without having very up to date virus définitions)
That's very poetic and I thank you for your kind sentiments.
I understand that some people find great joy in looking at painted baseballs. That's fine, continue as usual.
I understand also that these kind of icons are very important to a large part of the population. Whether it be white crosses or white baseballs the difference to me is irrelevant. That's fine, continue as usual.
Surprising how upset some people can get over such trivialities.
All hail the baseball....
"The media has being doing stories like this since Ugg said to Oog "You'll never guess what that crazy guy in the next cave has painted on the wall". So I guess we must have been dumbing down ever since then."
And you think that that is acceptable ? It is one of the reasons for which I gave up television about 15 years ago.
Is it even possible to be realistic without being nihilistic ?
"Ummm... yeah... so you know this is Bootnotes, right?"
Don't worry I have got more downvotes than the majority have got upvotes, yes, I klnow that we are in the bootnotes and it also seems that I have touched a nerve on our more "sensitive" readership..
Obviously painting baseballs is higher up in the ranks of other people's "list of things I dream to do" than it is on my mine..
Carry on James....take the exit where it reads "welcome back to sanity"... because it seems we may have strayed from the route..
I honestly couldn't care less for what anyone does in the privacy of their own home, that's their problem.
What I do not care for is the fact that the media, in this case El Reg, pump this crap onto the screens/newspapers/medium of their readers.
Society is being dumbed down to a level the leaves me in complete despair.. and what do I see, people on a tech site that defend this kind of thing.
"Is he hurting anyone? Is he harming himself? Is it pointless?"
You read the Daily Mail don't you ?
"Are most hobbies pretty pointless?"
Should I judge from the 3 downvotes that there are 3 El Reg readers that actually think that kind of hobby is interesting ? If so, I shudder at the speed at which humanity is descending into complete moronity..
Are there any "Darwin Awards" equivalants for the most pointless/useless/plain stupid hobbies.. This would easilly be classed way up high, along with growing long finger nails, collecting snail saliva and
measuring the ovality of chicken eggs..
No Finbar, I said "that I wanted to see what you can do with a pair ot bits.."
or even "Has replaced the existing liquid expansion recipiant with an old IrnBru labelled perspex bottle + replaced the existing liquid with an IrnBru coloured liquid within a prebuilt PC".
"On the same note, Glasgow should *never* be pronounced. "Glarsgow"."
Where I am from it would have to be spelt "Glesga" or "Glesgi* , that's how it is pronounced locally, even the Glaswegians don't pronounce it that badly....
PS : It's pronounced "Irn Bru" all over the world....
As a Scotsman I can't pronounce it any other way....
"But with a clock like that... how can we be sure it's not actually a bomb????"
Because "Scotsman" enough said.....
Just recently tried a Belgian beer that was new to me, it's called "Kasteel Tripel" ( Do not confuse this with Castel which is a wishy washy South Arfrican beer).
Kasteel Tripel is 11%, believe me you won't be downing 10 of these little bottles, the beer, as many of the Belgian beers, is excellent and definately worth a try.
"“We’ve observed that accessing Facebook can be 10-15 percent faster over IPv6. We believe other developers will see similar advantages from migrating,” ."
With incentives like that I prefer to remain on IPV4. In fact that would be a great idea, put all the social media,commercial, sports and porn sites on IPV6 and leave the rest of us alone to live quietly in IPV4 land..
What's the chances that someone is already preparing a bot with the details of 35Million AM accounts.....
and www.google.com, www.microsoft.live.com, www.apple.com, *.gov, a hundred thousand emails servers, a million forums etc etc etc
It's basically called the Internet.... and the details of your personal lives are now it's bloodline for the vampirical beast known as "commerce".
The Office environment is VmWare + Netapp, but I don't get to bring that home.!!!!
I have a work test rig at home for W10. I don't believe in VMs for everything, I want to see an OS on metal, with real spinning rust, low memory and shitty drivers, VM's tend to hide some of the problems that can occur etc etc ..
So far W10 won't run the Cisco VPN Client, so that puts an end to a lot of discussions... and from what I understand Cisco will not be continuing the client in it's current form and our MotherShip is not ready to upgrade technology....status quo.
VirtualBox and Mint are just involved in order that I can directly VPN into the office on the test rig.. ( since Cisco don't work), downloaded the v5.0.5 tonight which at least has helped with the Bridged Networking problems....
"I'm currently struggling to run Linux Mint as a VM under a Windows 10 host"
See reply above. It's not a choice !
"but there are still a few companies with an extensive OS/2 landscape, who've saved tons of money by sticking with it."
How are they obtaining support, OS2 was basically shutdown in 2006. Or are they managing to simply make do with what was available at the time. If this is the case then they are not saving money they are just avoiding spending any money, the same would have been true no matter which system they used or is there something that I am completely missing here.
"Is there any reason that you're not running Mint natively?"
Yes, and these are constraints not options.
So apart from the nostalgia factor what could we actually use it for ?
I love the idea but I just don't see it's potential..
I'm currently struggling to run Linux Mint as a VM under a Windows 10 host using Virtual Box ( the bridged networking is borked, r5.0.4) and I presume that this will not help with that problem.
A very inconsistent article, can you please give clarification, at least a bit more han GCHQ ab out how actually did or do not perform the breach, was it ISIS, IS , ISIL, Jihadists Liberation Front or the Now Defunt Syrian ExBrits Hackers Club.
Why can't we supply them with all the excess,used or last years pantomime outfits... It might not make them look very "authoritarian" but at least it would make for some interesting arrest scenarios..
Captain Hook successfully apprehends Woolworths shoplifter.
Barnaby the Clown arrests yet another drunken football yob.
Big Bird has been on a MacDonalds stake out for the least three weeks..
I used to enjoy watching other people play, especially in the later rounds, but personally, I never got the bug.. The one thing that Mario never had, at least in my opinion, was a sense of adventure..
To be perfectly honest I never understood the attraction to platform games, although I did complete Manic Miner (which was more of a puzzle game than a thumb basher)....
"Regulator Ofcom is to use an independent lab to test and rate phones for how well they actually make calls"
It just so happens that this years "independant" lab will be sponsored by Apple, next year by Samsung, then a comglomerate of both...
"We want to move people from needing, to choosing, to loving Windows and so do our partners,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella"
He does realise that Microsft sells operating systems and not girlfriends or children ?
"Loving" an operating system just sounds weird.
Because reading yet another article about which CEO farted in the last 3 seconds has become extremely mundane.
Never forget that a lot of people here were brought up on Saunders (Finbar) and Spectrums...
