In a sense all limits are arbitrary. What do you think is a reasonable time?
I think the 10 minutes tidying up window is reasonable compromis between no edit (c.f. Twitter) and perpetual edit (c.f. Facebook).
I am wary of perpetual edits as readers can misuse to rewrite posts to undermine arguments made by others.
Currently it is not enabled on m.thereg - it is a trivial client-side change though. We'll put it on our to do list.
Please link us to an example or two and we'll have a look.
unintentional - same bug spotted in search / fixed there.
thanks for the spot - we'll get to it tomorrow.
Some logic leaps going on there.
Journalist malpractice? Calm down, dear.
So this is your first post here. Question is: why bother?
That is a howler. Thanks for the spot. Removed.
Sure, but Beki wrote: "tree-lined Regent Street shop", which is not the same thing.
we will relax rules on this - but implementation is not scheduled
Well... it looks odd but we browser/ device test new units - but not on old, unsupported features!
Also, it's not an ad.
Kieren is British and lived in London for some years.
You dragged the answer out of me, I admit it, we all want Teslas.
Comments acknowledged - but give it a few days and - hopefully - you may get used to it.
BTW at the same time as changing article width - we also decluttered the right hand side. For most people this is a cleaner read. My understanding is that the reduced width also helps readability - although that may not apply to you...
not a typo.
Thanks for the catch. Corrected.
I can categorically confirm that your claim that NetApp got us to write this article is false. I suggest you read the article again.
A foolish comment, from someone with an ideological axe to grind.
You appear to have skin in this game.
Let's not turn this into Yet Another Conspiracy Theory. The political persuasion of the owners is irrelevant to outcome. Pollsters are looking to get an accurate snapshot of voting intent - they lose credibility if they are proved very wrong.
I am invoking executive privilege here. You have "teaparty" in your email address - and you come here for our tech coverage? ODFO
I guess WPP is offering a whitelisting service of some description - that doesn't require much computational grunt - a few mechanical turks can do the donkey work - This is what JP Morgan did.
For Voda, this is merely an attempt to return to status quo ante.
Until the advent of www. or, to be more precise, Google, advertisers - via their agencies - always controlled the context of their advertising. They can still do this on the internet if they trade directly with publishers and other reputable content providers.
It's a different story when advertisers prioritise performance at the expense of brand safety. Programmatic ad tech is filled with cowboys; search engine marketing will get you into trouble one day, no matter how hard Google tries to clean this act up; and syndication - Taboola / Outbrain - is an enormous cesspit.
Courtesy makes the world go around, Snow Wombat. As for your Github demand - I call "Troll".
Ah yes, the Fake Android Scare Hidden News Clickbait Agenda.
And how does that make the article crap, mr smarty pants?
Umm...slip of the brain on our part. Duly fixed.
This is a particularly foolish comment, even for you.
We broke an embargo inadvertently. This happens from time to time. In such cases, we archive and republish for the correct time.
When we do this we archive the article and strip it out. This time we stripped out the article and then archived it - hence the public striptease.
Refreshing to see a shameless plug made openly... we'll give you this one.
Did you actually read our article? As we said - unlike many others - no big deal.
We posted about this in another thread - we'll restore after Easter break.
Noted. We'll put it back after the Easter break. The vulture icon had a secondary use - hover to get menu items we couldn't think where else to put. In cleaning that up, we forgot about the home button utility when on story pages.
In accordance with Betteridge's law of headlines....
The zerohedge China conspiracy nutjob article you are linking to is about site traffic as picked up by Alexa. Alexa appears to be unable to distinguish botnet traffic, or maybe traffic from one botnet, from human beings. That is an Alexa issue and an Alexa issue only.
Declare your interest.
The U.S. applied economic sanctions against Russia in response to the annexation of Crimea. Hacking has nothing to do with this decision.
You are criticising the writer for not conducting a review of the software. But that is not the remit of this article, in which we critically question the claims of Artificial Intelligence capability made by various anti-malware firms.
It is the least you can do.
... and wrong.
16pt is pretty standard for minimum / base text size these days, especially for any site that is responsive (as we are planning to do).
Very cool, thank-you Mr. Bastard.
Our Wikipedia coverage dating from the mid-2000s is what infuriates - or infuriated Wiki-Pedians. Everything else is post hoc rationale...
Usage determines meaning, not dictionaries. Mate, you are onto a losing battle.
