"senior barristers can struggle to push through £100k a year"
My heart bleeds...
I tried it for a short while. It failed several times so now the only thing I do with OneDrive on any machine, is to remove or disable it.
Which part of the "Joke Alert" icon next to my post did you fail to see?
Maybe a quicker alternative would be to turn off the system you want to move to the cloud and see who (or what) complains!
I see the spec includes the magic words: REMOVABLE BATTERY
Just got my 5MX out to compare the keyboards - they look almost identical.
Muchof El Reg's news content for February 14th 2017 declared fake as the body text didn't mention roses or violets.
"In the 1990s, it was commonplace for the single IT guy to name their servers after planets"
Damn, found out at last!
Well, almost - my WiFi is called Saturn, and many of my servers and computers have named after moons such as Ganymede, Europa, Callisto, Titan (a very big box!) Mimas, Dione, Hyperion, Prometheus, Daphnis, Kari, Pandora, Pallene, Tethys and Enceladus!
Before that some early ones were called Ermintrude (it was a Gateway!) and Zebedee.
Mash up of the week!
Yep, I used to have to do that with my first ever HDD in my Amiga 2000 - the 80MB slab that had originally far too much out of a grand!
Maybe the cotton strung between the baked bean cans is in dire need of upgrading to string.
Several of mine as well.
...but that was mainly because my ISP, Virgin Media, had completely fucked up internet access in my local area for several hours and I could get access to anything!
That reminds me of a story I heard when working with Burroughs/Unisys equipment back in the late 1980s. A customer who had bought a second-hand Burroughs/Unisys B28 system. These came as modular pieces of kit that were clipped together - common modules were CPU, hard disk only and combined hard/floppy. Customer had phoned support because she couldn't get the 5.25" floppy to read after inserting it. Apparently, it was only when the support person asked about whether she'd flipped the floppy drive door shut that it turned out that she couldn't find anything resembling the door catch. It finally dawned on support that she'd been sold a CPU module plus a hard drive only module (no floppy module at all) and had just been slipping the floppy disk in between the CPU and hard drive modules.
There's a pic here of a B28 system (this one DOES include a combined hard/floppy module): https://www.reddit.com/r/retrobattlestations/comments/4wmksf/my_burroughs_b28_aka_convergent_technologies_ngen/
...each time a new Windows version comes out, Microsoft tell us how much better it is compared to the old version. So, shirley by now, it must be absolutely perfect and not need any support as there can't be any downtime or problems of any sort!
Mainly because they aren't working hard and definitely won't learn any lessons!
She turned me into a newt!
Did a DLX simulator for my 3rd year degree course back in the 90s at UEA - had the works including a pipelined version and a working microcode table. Great fun! They wanted to use it as a tool in part of their teaching - don't think they ever did though...
The nearest fuse box would probably do a Galaxy Note 7...
I have a Samsung fridge-freezer - I'm now worried about putting any curry ready meals in there in case they are too hot for it to handle safely!
You mean they don't do this already?
They're telling you it's time to install something like Adblock!
Shudder - one's more than enough!
Well, fuck me (cubed)!
Dangerous! Those four penises will have your eye out if you don't "watch" it!
Probably, as they usually go by train.
Having been burnt once, and seen too many others being burnt, I have avoided Seagate drives for years.
Yep, mine say I'm running Lynx on a Commodore Vic-20.
As it was in the back pocket he might have been "clenching it wrong" instead!
"Nothing matters more to us than our customers and doing right by them"
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Best joke I've heard in a long while!
I hope that was sarcasm!
And both are prone to crashing!
...the strings of your heart?
Yes, but beware of the leopard.
Funnily enough, I'm reading Proxima right now!
The last think I want on my Android phone is more MS crap. It's bad enough that there isn't an option to delete the MS bloatware that came pre-installed on it without rooting it.
Yes, it is - it's spelt "pseudo" :D
They were obviously THIS sorry:
At least they weren't trying to find something really elusive, such as integrity in a Tory or UKIP MP!
I don't think so - unless you mean check to see if the damned things have mysteriously sneaked their way in and delete them.
Eh? What? How?
You mean you've damaged your hands trying to beat some sense into your clients until they finally saw sense and stopped using Fasthosts?
Given my past experience of FastHosts it's a wonder they are still in business. I've steered many an unwary soul away from their incompetent clutches over the years.
"With our book, you are no longer dependent on a functioning internet connection to read Geek’s Guide to Britain"
Amazing! What will they think of next!
Yep, the people that built that underwater city!
Reminds me of a story about someone whose garden was plagued by caterpillars who found an advert for a kit that guaranteed it could kill 100% of them. Kit was promptly purchased and, upon arrival, was found to be 2 small blocks of wood labelled A and B, and accompanied by some simple instructions which read: "Place caterpillar on block A, hit with block B."
Is that something akin to Manic Monday, Sheffield Wednesday or Man Friday?
Wait, "Google Plus" - is that still a thing?
The building was still in beta, anyway...
"man... I don't know how well I'd deal with a Zombie Jobs as CEO of Apple..."
Yeah, I can see a repeat of the "You're not holding it right" episode but this time with the added Addams Family bonus of his hand falling off onto the floor and rushing off stage with said iPhone.
