hub, switch, router, modem... No one (even most VM support staff!!!) have no Idea of the difference of these!!! :):) :P
they would call it 'internet thingy' but it's not 'cool' enuff... :/
at least its not called 'cable modem' like most switches / routers are in dixons... :(
there is one big problem... many sites use JS to format and enable text entry, and some strange webs *whole content** is managed by flash... :O
turn of JS on INQ... LOLOL
does all this ONLY work if you use chrome???
c) just DONT USE chrome???? :)
Meanwood: 18.3 miles away... :O
As I said, I ONLY go there as its almost next door... :P
It rather depends where you live, and the attitude of the local supermarket...
I live within yards of a huge waitrose, and they keep cutting out stuff I want to buy!!
there is a sainsburys about a mile away, that has much more choice!! only problem is, it is a 'metro', with low stocks...
Another 5 to 10 Km away in either direction there is a massive sainsburys, but that means half an hour on the bus... makes Online much nicer..:)
I think the *whole* of BA's system failing (at the same time??) cannot be just a power supply fault, just bad reporting of what a DC is... Must be a main DATA Centre... :)
no money, they sacked half the IT staff, and the rest went on holiday, or worse... :)
yes, dont bother with the TV news (RT, SKY, BBC) the first 20 mins was all about terror, then 2 or 3 mins on BA!
yes the meedya invent new meanings for words that are not 'fancy' enough... 'projection' is such a boring word...
notice the large frame at 45 % angle, that you project upon..
its on rule 34...;)
Kate Adie started on a national news team in 1976... :)
AAAAH the wistful dreaming days of the late sixties......:P :/
we thought computers were all powerful, until reality and recession started....:(
Did you 'jump' before you read the rest????? :P
*NO* lightsabers, *NO* palm-sized video calls...
VERY simple, NO cutting involved at all!!!! :P
D U M B people, who think an image that LOOKS like its 'floating in air' ....:
here is a web on how to do it.. NOT a hologram, just a 'back projection'... :(
well, plenty of them here..
BUT... *what* is your definition of a 'hologram'???
MY one is a picture , that will change its axis, as you walk around it...
the above youtube does not show this, just a projection onto plastic, so it looks like it is 'floating'..
a REAL hologram..
"you could see a small chip, with a magnifying glass floating above it. If you looked from above, you were looking 'through' the glass, and saw an enlarged image of the chip"
- if you moved slightly, it magnified a DIFFERENT part of the chip... :)
I think the main reason is safety, cost, and the limited nature of the pictures... It is not that easy to make a 1 hour long movie using the process...
then lasers are *dangerous* - for any good display, they are carefully monitored to prevent it hitting your eye, causing blindness or worse...
WAY to miss the point... DO tell, how long did it take you to make those 'holograms'??
say about 100 to 200 dots that took a lot of patience, say about 15 minutes of your life wasted, when a proper process would do that in a few seconds... THAT is 'bandwidth' - the time it takes to do something... how many dots do you think are in that star wars LP??? thousands??
and also notice it has been done ages ago, you have to 'look into' the glass that the hologram is in..
The problem with android is NOT just google, but all the other apps that come with the phone, put on by the various sellers.... :(
A lot of 'clueless' users bought the phone years ago, and do not know why it is slowing down, running out of battery quickly, etc...
The main reason is that google is STILL blatantly downloading updates for many, many apps (without even bothering to check whether they apply to the old version of OS) that have NEVER been used or looked at due to many not even knowing of their existence, or how to manage them!!
This is the main reason the average buyer just buys a new phone,
* * I F * * they can afford it, or their contract will allow...
So how 'fancy' is the word 'cloud' now??? Most intelligent people know that backup that relies in the internet is not that reliable... :)
the safe way is onsite backup to removable disk (AND the internal HDD..), that goes home with you every night... then the whole building may collapse, but your data etc is safe...
and of course that includes the incremental backups, too.. (to many places, depending on cash available...)
hey guess what?? I have run win7 **without** patches, upgrades, etc since 2013...
I do NOT USE IE, or other MS stuff.. office 2003 is fine thanks...
the latest Firefox (or the open sourced PaleMoon variant is much better..) and a very good AV that does full protection!
and do the *know* about anti virus at all???
also, though, have you *actually* tried to run a .exe?? - it LOOKS like it is running it, until a message comes up about permissions...
Nothing is free on the Internet, Nothing is free in real life!!!
you PAY for your clothes, so you do not get arrested...
you PAY for your gas n electric, so you do not freeze or die of boredom...
you PAY for your food and entertainment!
and while you are walking down the road, you are CAREFUL that you do not get mugged, insulted!
and DO NOT shout your address, bank details and phone number for any one to hear and take advantage!!
I am using an offshoot of the firefox source, called PaleMoon.. you will find it VERY familiar to older versions of firefox, with regular updates to keep up with current trends...
I find it is NOT the browser, but scripts and flash that take up the memory.. an addon is available to switch on/ off these on demand, removing the problem!! :)
well you need to goto the OTHER open source versions of the firefox code... :)
Palemoon is a good one, with good sense, and still supports linux... :)
If you hate what firefox has done, why not try 'palemoon' , a *users* version of the old thing.. ??
again, is that speedtest result??? can you actually download a good VIDEO at that speed?? where???
And PLEASE verify what speed you are downloading the pron!!! :)
NO, **seriously**!!! :) I get rather sick of hundreds of 'speedtest' results, and wanna know what is actually real world possible.... :E
Where in Northamptonshire?
considering its population is approaching a million, how about a vague postcode or even just town??
It would surely help business to focus on where to go, and others to help out.. :)
Are you just pondering, and do not know what *really* happens ??? and then if it 'works', would you not have to phone up to complain about speed??
Yes, that may be very nice for the 'normal office workers' but what about those who want to get their browser settings going??
eg showing date created/ modified, and little tweaks to IE, needed for proprietary web software to work (yes, upper management are still too paranoid to leave MS.. :( )
(why are peeps talking about the coin? this is about the web..)
Most newsagents and small shops have to PAY to process card transactions!!
A lot I know will NOT accept a card for less than £5 ...
THINK about that when you are buying your 50p paper...
unless of course, you r timer does not JUST switch it off, but changes the set temperature at a set time of day...
you are jut making a simple system seem complex,...
No, I have an ancient thing called a 'timer' to turn it off for me. very easy to set, for long trips away..
and My timer works on temperature too, so a cold or hot spell, is catered for... :)
well I have a wireless remote for my heating (independent, not WIFI!) - should get one... :)
sorry, TL:DR, but FIRST rule of sales support is HELP the customer... Instead of 'cutting him off', and get BAD feedback from all the OTHER customers, he should politely say 'sorry, please call us and we will help you...'
on amazon there is always helpful feedback..:)
I hope they are watching this, while their sales are dropping like a stone.....
Why did he buy it?? people like 'flashy things', and have NO IDEA of the problems they produce... :D
you do know you can set and REPORT bad sites???
ABP+ updates its filters every day - and a bad report means that ad firm LOSES its revenue...
and adblockers and antivirus at the ready???? The GOOD AV will also test a website for 'reputation' as well as other nasty things..
James, your analogy of the go-kart track can be used for 'shocking thing on the internet' as well...
If they can understand that cartoon animation is 'not real' , then they can be taught that most stuff acted on internet is 'not real' too... :)
The meme is Education! Education! Education! and is 1000% more effective than any other.. :)
Your kiddies CAN hear the strange noises coming from the bedroom, and if they are simply told that it is "mommy loving daddy" , the will understand, and it must be reinforced that it is a very private thing, and any films they may see hear of are as 'real' as cartoons... :)
works now... using palemoon..
Chrome may be a 'good browser' BUT that has NO relation to whether it is liked or not!!! :)
It is very like cars, you may love yours, even though it only does 10 miles to the gallon.... :/
also take a closer look at Pale moon, it behaves totally differently than firefox, but that may be due to many websites and AV not recognizing/ hating it...
well you know how to stop 'banger racing' crashes'???
Use only one car, and it is ONLY used once... :P
just like flash block, only the vid you want to watch, is 'active' then you close the page..
I find it is usually bad scripts and bad flash that causes chrashes and slowdowns... get a good adblock, flashblock, yesscript, noscript....
you are forgetting Firefox is **open source** , so just get the code, and make your own... Pale moon has done just that, and added a much better graphics core, etc, etc...
Its not just Moz that is suffering C-RI, but their blind geek fans...
If you prefer email to be part of the browser, that seems to be lost due to browser wars...
My self, I would rather they are separate, so if one has problems, the other is safe... :P :)
systemd'oh! DNS lib underscore bug bites everyone's favorite init tool, blanks Netflix
