so how do you stop FF force upgrading?? lots of hacks???
FF already has lost many, BUT... more clueless idiots sign up...
Pale moon is a good steady one, with a good forum, latest release is great, still running months old addons... :)
If you are using a managed network (active directory) and network managed antivirus, it gets more complicated (hey I'm no expert, the network guy does it.. :/) then when FB and twits decide to do some TLS, they(browsers, AV, whatev :( ) all stop authorizing them! Take the PC off domain, there is no problem...
Even some websites 'on domain' think there is an adblock / virus, etc - take it 'off domain' , no other changes, the same website sees NO problem..
c) websites wanting to stop people by-passing their ads!
The problem with '100M' is that many websites do not go that fast... :/
Even youtube limits its bandwidth to stop fast guys hogging it away from others!
Fast.com gives me a 'real speed' of about 80M, but speedtests give my 'headline speed' of around 150M..
EG most motorways you can go at 100 MPH, BUT ONLY if there is NO traffic!
with normal traffic, the speed is much less...
Well Thinkbroadband has is own odd view of it all. :/
I suggest you try ispreview.co.uk for a bit of a wider view...
Enough already!! 'my 4k video looks great on my 5 in screen' LOLOL
TL DR, but what about *useful* things like Bluetooth file transfer out of the box?? I suppose you have an excuse for not having that which ALL other phones have??
- It means that a 20M file can be transferred to your friend mobile, *without* cost or knowing his number!
** on earth ** ... but life may be found elsewhere, at much higher temperatures, where normally solid materials flow like water... :p
hey, you cant expect the poor artists to do *everything* !!!
#put plenty of
# wordy comments in!!! :)
Yes.... google, you have got to that level of fame, stop moaning about grammar, and be proud that almost no-one says 'search the internet' anymore!! If bing had been as good and inclusive, superbly effective etc, we would use that word...
we all say 'sellotape' even though it usually a cheaper brand of adhesive tape!! same thing with Hoover, etc...
not even worth stealing then???? :)
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.. :( )
