Re: The encryption horse is free
I know of quite a few centre right voters who liked the coalition moving their votes from one of them to the other.

May party - want our data.
Labour - want our data.
I know how I am voting now, and it is not those two.
Theresa May is the reason I will not vote for her party. Both Corbyn and the previous ID cards shite for his.
Better say it again.
I prefered Cameron, Milliband and Clegg to May, Corbyn and Farron.
The applications were written in a big selling database compiler and the best database for it used native DOS IPX, there was no IP layer in DOS.
It used NETBIOS to talk to a Windows IP interlayer to talk to the server with IP, this worked perfectly with 2000 and XP, 98 we used IPX as 99% of the servers then were NETWARE.
MSes aggresive attack on Novell caused all customers to go Windows server, and MSes depreciation of IPX forced the tool we used.
Search for ADSDOSIP and Windows 7.
And the server engine can work with all Windows languages I have come across, so at least data is safe.
The graphics mode though this was games mainly, I remember Wolf3D.
As to AMD removing 16 bit support, why not leave in for Intel and let them use it as an advertising feature. It would be nice to allow my home PC to run my favourite text editor in 7 (64) as well as XP (32).
Mind you I raised a laugh today when a customer asked us to check the specification for a server and I said my 10 year old XP PC is more than twice as powerful.
But MS have forced the adoption of XP past its natural life.
THEIR fault not the customers.
I don't know about anyone else, but you buy an operating system to run programs.
If they kill off things we keep using OSes that run them.
As mentioned many many times before.
Vista killed full screen command prompt (VGA DOS programs) and 7 32bit NETBIOS.
If they had included 16 bit support in 64 bit, and kept NETBIOS, and still allowed full screen VGA mode applications we would have seen XP go sooner.
We have had customers FDISKing Vista and 7 PCs to use XP to run older programs.
Why would we want to?
Without leaving the contintent we can have plenty of brilliant cars.
Why buy a US generic big saloon when you can drive a BMW, Mercedes or Jaguar?
Why buy a US 4x4 when the best are made in Solihull?
Sports cars, hello Italy
Then there are the grand tourers, hatches, estate cars, so many decent ones available.
No need to go to Yankland
Product Placement. Two sides to this. Can be fine, can be annoying. Depends on usage.
Some video games get flack for this. Seen some people moan about Uncharted 4.
Why can't Nathan Drake own a Sony phone?
Why can't Elena FIsher own a PS1?
Perhaps because ND is owned by Sony. But needs a phone, why not use own make.
But then in The Last of Us EVERY games console in a house or shop was a PS3. But that was not an advert nor product placement as to play the game you needed one. I wonder if it was because there would be no copywrite issues.
Just thinking about this, do we need the engines?
I am sure we could fund a British jet engine manufacturer to produce one, or even a European consortium.
It is not like we do not know what to do.
Just remember the most hours supersonic belong to a British France collaberation.
Really cold and snowy
Well back in the early 80s we had quite a bit of snow and trouble with some trains.
Snow compacted into traction motors dropping a loco to three of them, but it still managed OK on its trailing bogie. Got over 25mph anyway (40km/h).
Next train was OK. I got to my destination.
Not sure if same year or previous or next same trip a loco took full advantage. Must have been at least 10% up on power due to the cold, went like shit off a shovel!
In the UK if you think the UK is better off in the EU you have lost your place.
Try being of centre right anti authortarian persuasion.*
Now a bit stuffed.
Basically in the gap between Lib Dem and Conservative.
* This means
1) Leave me alone, stop checking everything I do, NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
2) Do not take everything in tax.
3) Do not micro manage.
4) Allow businesses to make money so they can employ people and pay out to their shareholders####
BUT control in form of
1) Do not allow businesses to rip us off.
2) Provide a safety net.
#### Shareholders = everyones pension funds
My wife decided she had to join as I was very happy to have 127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com in my HOSTS
When someone could just leave a link to their faceache profile on a forum and it actually goes there and pulls in shit I thought I was justified.
I then knew it was privacy hell. Also I am not a Yank uni kid.
ID Cards and surveilance were a good reason to kick out Browns lot in 2010.
Just a pity Cameron chose an authortarian nut job for Home Secretary.
Remember there are a lot of people who want economic competence with small government who let us live in peace, but we are neglected.
You think that all Conservative voters like May?
Actually many do not and are either abstaining or LibDemming this election. However kippers will be boosting Mays vote. Younger ones who remember Brown and then the Coalition are very happy to go LibDem. Seems quite common among the late teens early 20s. They even understand the tuition fee issue.
See the bit about David Cameron and 45 minute walk and chat vs locked in a room away from Theresa May.
This was just top link, seen it in other places as well.
I know it is unfashionable but I liked all 3 main party leaders last election. I thought Cameron was the best for the job then, but Clegg and Milliband were OK. Actually Clegg did pretty well as Deputy PM despite being the minor party with only partial influence.
I am not sure if it would be wise to compare May to the secret Police ranks, but May is an authortarian nut job and Corbyn a CND loving old fool with no clue. Farron, well he seems to have no image.
That is how much I pay for a video game I hope to get many hours of enjoyment out of. 40p per hour is OK.
Drinks - that is too much, how much are your paying?
Meal for 1 - too much again
cig - not sure on the value of a 4CIG EMU I am afraid but scrap value is a lot.
Knee trembler - no idea what it is even.
Operating systems, I do not know if I have ever paid for one. Free with PC?, free from internet, free from a MSDN disc from work.
I would say the MSDN disc one was a nightmare to update and install, it hated all my exisiting drives, the free from internet one was much easier, and more well behaved.
So I may have paid for XP as it was on the PC, but I don't think it was that much.
Q) Why do people run Windows?
A) To run applications.
Q) Why Windows over anything else?
That is it, the ONLY reason to run a Windows OS over anything else is the best WIN32 support there is, and of course also WIN64. But WIN32 is the important one.
Who cares about app stores and the like?
The simple question is.
Can it run all of my WIN32 software?
If yes OK
If no FDISK and install something useful.
