Re: The EU has a top level domain?
Sounds like a big scr.eu y.eu to holders of those domains.

I can see if the contract is just for the telephone service, but unfortunately a lot of the contracts cost is usually for the hardware. You are essentially paying for your latest cellphone over a period of 2 years. In Canada they mostly got rid of early termination fees and all you owe is your remaining portion of the hardware you took when you signed up. If people (the estate) no longer owe for the hardware they have not paid off when they die then that is just either going to increase the rates for phone plans or companies may decouple their phone plans and hardware.
I really hate it when organisations or people claim something that was a mistake when they apologize. The ad was deliberate, not a mistake. It may have been an error in judgement, but certainly not a mistake. The term mistake diminishes the apology as it takes no ownership. It also makes it seem like it could happen again. After all, mistakes happen.
Proper use of the word mistake:
Oops, I dropped a cup onto the floor while trying carry three back from the sink and it broke. That was a mistake. Next time I'll be more careful and take them one at a time.
Improper use of the word mistake:
Oops, I slept with your sister when you were on a business trip. I know I shouldn't have. It was a terrible mistake. Please forgive me.
Earlier today an inappropriate image appeared in in our product. It has been removed and we deeply regret this mistake and sincerely apologize for the offence we caused with this image,
Yeah. I had an HTC Magic and an HTC Dream. After about 7 months the dream would show full connectivity, but would not receive calls until your rebooted it. My carrier offered me a reduced price on the Magic as a replacement. After about 7 months it kept umounting and remounting the SD card. Replacing with different brands of cards did not resolve it. All data on the cards were corrupted.
After spending large amounts of money on HTC in a small amount of time and being told they were not under warranty, I went with other manufacturers.
Despite the good reviews of their latest offerings I am still wary of HTC.
Actually the universe is only 7 years old and was created by the Great Zabu.. On that date we were all created in our current forms, complete with false memories, jobs, diverse cultures, religious beliefs, and complete back history.
Zabu has a sick sense of humour. All hail Zabu.
They put they support IPv6 on the box, but the e4200v2 I got would not do IPv6 over my PPoE connection using PPP. The only option they had was automatic native or manual IPv6 tunnel. I went out and got an Asus RT-N66U. I now have a dual stacked IPv4/6 site as well as a test IPv6 only site at home.
Cisco has to do more to support IPv6 than say they do so on the package.
I went and viewed his videos. The first was ok. The 2nd he references his teacher and starts with the following statement:
"Mr. Feneley gave me an early presentation date because he is sick and tired of me not showing up to class. In retaliation, I made this film as taboo and unrelated to the project as possible.
Enjoy, you short-fused bastard."
The video segment ends with him exploding his teacher with laser beams.
"We are talking about preventing children from having access to inappropriate content, and how we can work with ISPs to make it that little bit more difficult for them to do so"
So they are going to make it more difficult for ISPs to prevent children from having access to innapropriate content.
It may be just me, but isn't that the revesrse of what they are intending?
Call me a cretin, but our division was given the Apple shuffle as gifts. When iTunes 8.2 was released everyones shuffle stopped working. The Apple forums were inindated with requests for help and Apple released an "unbricker" tool that worked in some instances. In most instances the PC could not see the shuffle anymore when it was inserted.
If you look at the Apple forums and tech support you will find some history on it.
I suppose a 100% failure rate for a few hundred employees is statiscally possible, but unlikely.
Rogers started this about a year ago. Previously my poorly typed URLs when unresolved would be redirected to Google and the one that I meant to type would usually be on the top of the list.
Then one magic day I got a Rogers/Yahoo ad list. I could opt out with a cookie. When you did this you would get a Rogers/Yahoo 404 page with an option to resubscribe to the ad list.
With that and them packet shaping my VPN connection to the office (2 MB transfer in 15 mins on a 6 Mbps line) I switched ISPs.
Funny thing is they promote both of these network management techniques as a way to improve overall customer satisfaction with the internet experience.
So, let me get this straight. I currently own a 50" 16:9. When watching 16:9 I get the full 50". When watching a cinematic bluray I get the bars above and below. What it seems I am paying extra for is the loss of a full 50" 16:9 HD picture, so that I can watch a cinematic movie without bars. hmmmmm.
it is not their fault on the speed that the clients receive, but on how they bill their customers. A signal strength reading from the aDSL gateway will show the max speed the line can offer. as well, the ISP is aware of the speed its customers are connecting with it. If you, as an ISP, can only offer your customer 1Mbps and they are paying you for 8 Mbps that is wrong. The ISP's will gladly sign you up for their top of the line package and provide you the lowest speed, all the while taking your money for their premium service.
Although you and I are probably well aware of the discrepancy between aDSL speeds ordered and received, most people are not. They happily pay for their 8Mbps service, not realizing they could be paying less than 1/2 of what they currently pay and receive exactly the same speed.
This is how it is the ISP's fault.
If you read the Wikipedia article and the OAA article it states "About 71% of the surface is covered with salt-water oceans" This is not the answer to the question "How much of the Earth is covered by water?" It excludes lake and rivers, which are freshwater.
The correct answer is 74%
Even Reg writers make mistakes.
As pointed out in some articles this is not a freedom of speech issue. This is a private website with it's own rules that users agree to abide by. The Terms and Conditions and User Agreements layout what you can and can not do. The site has limited the types of pictures it wishes to post onto its servers. As a user you agreed to this when you created an account. These rules limit what you can post and protect you from what others post.
Although other people in this forum have singled out America for its moral conservatism there are much more 'conservative' nations on the planet in which breastfeeding pictures are not culturally acceptable.
Facebook is a site designed social networking, not social activism. The views of a portion of users in one part of the world are not necessarily the views shared the rest.
