Previously known as amanfrommars ?
Today's technology, solutions without problems. Paradoxically it has produced large numbers of billionaires.
Also quite a few new problems...
Sadly the most recent ascii-art I can recall is at goat.se (NSFW). I wonder what these databases make of this?
Great comment, coming form a judge.
The inclusion of amanfrommars contributions should help advance the science.
I think I've just spotted a bug. You executed that loop twice. Perhaps you didn't factor in oil depravation.
At first I thought that was a typo for deprivation, but on reflection, maybe not.
Re-read the article. The job spec isn't just Win 10/Office. More to the point they want Exchange, phones, voicemail and networking.
When I clicked the Start button, "Restart" and "Shutdown" had been replaced by "Update and Restart" and "Update and Shutdown". Is that new, or have I just missed it in the past?
It just means that there are updates to be installed. When they have been installed, the legends will return to what they were before. Until next time...
The problem in the UK has always been short term thinking except in a few companies with strategies and vision like RR.
Seems to me this started (or maybe just got a lot worse) in the 80's with the rise of performance-related pay. If the conditions for getting a bonus are sufficiently badly thought out, it can mean that the management strategy for maximising bonus can be contrary to the best interests of the company. This would be particularly true if you don't expect to be with the company for long.
A true genius and what did we do with him? Prosecuted and chemically castrated him, driving him to suicide.
Perhaps better not to reflect on him after all.
Perhaps not long term, but at one point they survived largely because Microsoft bailed them out. At the time Microsoft were trying to claim they didn't have a monopoly on PC operating systems. Having Apple around was kind of necessary, being as the 'year of Linux on the desktop' still hadn't arrived.

This coming from someone who calls themselves Mort....
"The American people will have to weigh in ... The problem is big and broad..."
just like many Americans, as it happens.
Couldn't ever really get into that. For me it has to be solitaire / free cell. But word games could be the new one. Anyone have any tips? Needs to be be multiplayer and preferably multi-language.
I think I'd like to add this to my phone, what was the company name again?.
If it looks like a duck, and it, oh wait....
Now if they were Neuromancer fans, I'd be worried.
Seems a bit unkind, or he really that shape?
the savings are tiny as I'm a very low user
The savings appear to be so small that if anything at all goes wrong, the potential savings will be more than wiped out by the time spent sorting it out.
That was also one of the good things about being in the EU.
which went so well....
Sounds like a song title
It's a moronity with a typo.
Oh no, that's just where they pay tax....
Is 4.3 the strength, CAMRA members want to know?
Make extensions visible by default, dammit. If this had been done decades ago,
Decades ago file extensions _were_ visible by default. Then MS decided to hide them.
the above shows just how effective non-US encryption can be, even if we have to go to Mars to get it.
Surely this, and Andrews previous reply, indicate the problem. Prior to the internet (or digital distribution really) most of this didn't matter, as you couldn't do it - by which I mean simply provide a means for someone to obtain a perfect copy.
The suggestion above that there is a difference between linking to a stolen image on a server that one owns, as compared to linking to a stolen image on another server seems specious. The practical effect is the same - the stolen image is there to be viewed.
The law, as it stands doesn't work anymore, and comparisons with physical situations don't help. Seems to me that we (society) need to figure out is what is the right thing to do, so the law can evolve to work in the digital age. It doesn't matter what a hyperlink actually is,what matters is what it enables, and if what it enables is wrong then let that be the guide.
Caused by his own jammer, methinks.
I can't speak for the new Lumias but I have Win10 on my 930 and I think it's fine. I much prefer writing for the Windows phone, than for my Android. Admittedly I'm a .net person, so it may just be OS familiarity and Visual Studio, but I do find it a better development experience.
Care to explain how it works on Windows then?
Probably fair to point out that DRM only 'works' to the point of making it difficult, but not impossible, to circumvent.
As a side note, often by making a purchased product so annoying to use that getting a cracked version makes the thing useable. e.g games that won't run at all without a net connection, dvds that won't let you skip adverts, etc, ad nauseum.

Last time I posted this sort of prediction, I was heavily down-voted by the near-sighted.
History is repeating itself.
Not a lawyer, but reading the pdf, I think you're bang on.
Demand for credit card numbers goes up. Millions of pre-teens discover Tor and the darker parts of the internet, also probably discover other sources of pr0n as a by product.
Possibly not exactly what was intended....
root of all Snowdens of yesteryear.
And in an ironic twist, easy access to research papers is what Sir Tim Berners-Lee had in mind when he developed html. The hyperlink was to be an easy way to reference someone else's research that you were citing in your own paper. If you look back to the original html spec, you find plenty of tags (like tables of authority, citation, index) that are exactly what you need to publish academic research!
Well the current negotiations with the EC have huge potential to change them again, viz child benefit for children overseas payable at the going local rate, and no benefits until 4 years (or maybe 18 months and varying thereafter up to 4 years).
Forget the ransom. The disruption to normal operations will have cost far more than 350 quid.
"Sio te first thuinbg that"
I thought it was another failed attempt at an upper casing routine.
Couldn't agree more. I remember reading about a system specified and development starting in full knowledge that processing power now would make it too slow, but processing power at delivery would most likely have increased to meet the requirements. I think that was a military system too.
Sounds like this would be a filter to block families. There must be a better name, perhaps one inspired by Vimes 'Ambivalent' post above.
Some of us are old enough to remember it was the "grown up" version of TISWAS.
I'm old enough to have forgotten that. IIRC it was crap, while TISWAS was pretty good, even if it was meant for kids.
I think they thought of that, and then realized that anyone who cares would simply use a non-US (or UK) service. The end result of back-dooring all US communications/encryption services will be that those US companies will lose a potentially substantial portion of their international business. They might even lose US based business if those companies chose to use foreign providers.
