So, who do you recommend? AOL?
Keep the guy in the little computer repair shop in town in business. I think he is looking to retire as he has started to sell Linux Mint pre-installed.
Why not buy a camera?
As data is refreshed, copied etc. does the metadata/exif data get lost?
Print using high quality inks on archival quality paper. Store in archival boxes in a fireproof facility. The only way to ensure readability by your children's children in X+ years time.
Shush, don't feed the troll.
They even managed to get Schroedinger's cat to play a bit part in the Elvis scene :-)
It's cheap crap - why would anyone expect it to be secure? It's only redeeming point is that being so crap it won't last that long so will end up as landfill long before anyone gets chance to do anything meaningful with it.
It can't be just me but I take one look at these toys and equate them to naff over priced tat and run a mile.
Tell that to the inventor of the TV remote :-)
Why are there handles on doors that need to be pushed?
911 operators that is.... 999 yes, and what lovely bunch they are (never know when you might need one)
Yes I have one like that, keeps drinking my beer :-(
So which relative orbit would you put the relay station in? There would be times when the relay station could be further away distance wise than Earth. Might need more than one :-)
What more is there to say. It had the lot... Daleks, snakes, more aliens than you could throw a sonic screwdriver at, Missy, Clara, Exterminations and exploding Tardis. :-D
Use technology....you know the stuff that most of Reg readers use every day. By all means have your lecture in London but also have it piped to other venues around the UK. Most conference centres have smallish rooms with interactive facilities. Come on Reg show how it can and should be done!
Played the whole thing as himself, couldn't act his way out of a paper bag.
Who knew that heavy metal could be so interesting....:-)
Your definition of good grub is very different to mine - veggie cafe :-( Yet when I was there a few years back one of the sustainable ideas was a small holding with pigs and chickens.... but the "produce" was not sold in the shops or cafe, most strange.
The speal chucker :-(
A tosser icon would be of more use here!
Have some gaffer tape and boogie in the dark :-)
I suspect that 90% of homes on broadband have a duel modem-router which functions perfectly well. Why would I or anyone else need another router?
The only conclusion that I can come to having the limited data available is this: You have a solid bone head. That will be £1,000.00 consultation fee.
You spelt c***ts incorrectly :-)
@ John 104 - I cannot work out if you are trolling or a genuine proud parent. I will assume the latter.
I cannot work out why you think that looking at "cool stuff" is in anyway a preparation for a career in aerospace or mechanical engineering?
@ s.pam <Pedant Mode>The Sherman is a WWII Tank and weighed 30Tonnes. </Pedant Mode>
If you purchased a normal watch for £339 and lets say the calendar didn't do leap years you would quite rightly take it back for a refund. Why is this for some reason different? It isn't a finished product, not fit for purpose so take it back and ask for refund.
Me trolling.... Honest comment guv. That Quad system is the same age as I am, good grief are you telling me that I have to get a 60+ years old system to get decent mono. Who's trolling who here?
As someone who is deaf in one ear, and always has been I find this talk interesting. I would dearly love to get a decent mono system :-)
Wonder how many packs of joss sticks they got through? Always sad when people believe their own bullshit, do they think that people actually care?
I was in my bank yesterday and all of their terminals are still running XP non of these ever go near the internet. I suspect that this scenario can be repeated in all banks and insitutions.
Everything fine in the grey area between the grim north and the effluent south.
@ Bloakey1 - Their!!!! their, my good god it's THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grammar Nazi to the rescue. Damm good job I was around.
OJEU - the Official Journal of the European Union. There you go.
The business I work for had an electricity SMART meter installed last November. Hurray! thought I, no more faffing about each month trying to take a reading in a dark cabinet. Contacted the supplier... "So, now that you have a SMART meter installed here you won't require monthly readings from us? Oh no we need those to continue for at least another year, as although we are rolling out these meters we don't have the software to interface it with our billing system." What!!!
@ Graham Marsden
No just lots of people who wished that cyclists would read and obey the current highway code.
(Challenger Tank) And 120mm HESH & APDS shells! Not forgetting the 2 machine guns. Who needs a laser?
Let me get this right, there is a major IT company implementing a major internal IT solution that is slurping up funds and the target end date is slipping to the right. Why does this not surprise me, they are obviously using the same consultants as they foist on everyone else! Ha! :-)
"What I'd like to find now is a sort of reverse Turing test, one which will tell the difference between a call centre agent and a badly programmed bot."
Simple, I can understand what a badly programmed bot is saying.
Don't give up your day job....on second thoughts this is your day job, oh dear.
For that you need Google Glass and access to your bank.
Getting a POA was easy, just a matter of knowing a good solicitor. Getting my mothers bank, Halifax, to accept it and set up/change the accounts was worse than pulling teeth. At one branch when I presented the certified signed copy quote from the branch POA expert "I am sorry I can't accept a copy" me "why" him "because I need to feel it, to check it is real"....What!? I could go on....
I think we need River Song back.... The Doctor needs to meet his wife again, that would give Clara something to choke on :-)
If you want a fun? drive try an artic power unit, amazing to drive and more power than you would ever need. The forward/back rocking motion is interesting.
The lovely Fenke is not even modelling the Classic Register T shirt.... Don't you want to flog anything? Bah, humbug!
I thought that this was a wind up...There really is a USS Ponce. Named after an American lobbyist by any chance? :-)
But not then....
Conversation that I have had more than once. "I cannot open any Word documents or spreadsheets. What are you trying to open them on? An iPad, I just cannot get them to open. Did you check before you bought the iPad that things like Word would work on it? I didn't know that I had to, my friend had an iPad and says it is wonderful and she takes pictures with it so I had to get one." Puts phone down in exasperation....
"The same could certainly be said for any poor soul attempting to get to north London via the capital's woeful commuter train services."
Think yourself lucky you have some form of transport, most folks outside the M25 have to rely on cart tracks and charabancs. I do wish the whiners in London would lift their eyes up from their newspapers or smart phones from time to time and join the rest of the UK!
