Re: Sales Person of the Year
Um, no it isn't - IBM bought the company and the product and re-branded it as Tivoli, then reversed the branding a few years later. It is *not* Tivoli software at all, trust me.

That reminds me of a great mail transport system I used in the late 80's - it had a similar issue, where if it ran out of space it would trigger an email to the admin, but since it had no room for the message, would generate another message to the admin, and so on and so on...
We had a early HDD in a PC at the college I attended (and eventually worked for), on cold mornings, it would not start up, until the case right over the drive was given a good hard thump to loosen it up.
Sorry to see you go Simon, I do love reading this column - best to you in the future!
"The Sky buyout dispute is entirely political" - no, its a bit more than that, it's about letting one person, and the interests/values he espouses dominate the airwaves as well as the web and print media. Oh, well, I guess that is rather political its like having a leader who was not elected but has purchased his power. Kinda reminds me of Robert Mercer - who may or may not have had an almost unfair amount of influence over the Brexit campaign.
Had a server room (for academic computing at a small college campus in the late 80's) that was shelves behind my desk. We grew beyond that small space and had to move them to racks in the main electrical distribution room, which had open vents to the outside, no issues with cooling, there were snowdrifts in the room in the winter :)
British Gas installed smart meters in our home, I was not there at the time, and when I arrived home my wife showed me the new "monitor" which cannot connect to the meters. We've since changed supplier, and they keep asking me to provide meter readings, I try to get the readings of the meters themselves, and the new supplier rejects them saying they must be incorrect. WTH do I do now?
I'll give BG some credit for spotting an issue with the electric supply to the house being a bit dodgy, that evening two fellows from the electricity supplier came to the house and fixed it.
But to return to my issue, who do I contact if I have an issue with my meters?
Yes, if one is a complete loser, but should he happened to have won any games, no lives would be lost, and friends can give lives to one another, last I checked I had a couple of hundred I could "cash" in. Likely I have so many as I never play. to busy being a Commentard.
No, in Canada and the USA, there is something called Hot Italian Sausage...its certainly not Chorizo. And sadly not something we have found as yet in the UK. Its basically ground pork (no fillers!) and seasoning. Here's a recipe - in which I assume the paprika is hot, not mild.
What would not expect anything less from the illustrious Ian Duncan Smith - he's following the maxim of "in order to maintain the appearance of competence in your position, surround yourself with those less competent than yourself" to a tee! I swear he must have pictures of the PM in some very compromising positions in order to still be part of the Cabinet.
Um, not exactly...Apple's proprietary, and, until recently, closed-source codec is lossless - Apple Lossless Audio Codec or ALAC for short, or even better - ALE (Apple Lossless Encoder).
You must be confusing that with the codec sharing the same .m4a extension (and the same container) which is Advanced Audio Coding, the successor to mp3, not developed by Apple at all, but a consortium including Sony, Dolby and Nokia along with Bell Labs and the Fraunhofer institute. Though to be fair to your comment that is the default codec on pretty much every Apple device out there.
Trevor - an informative post ruined by a rather unclever attempt at comedic hyperbole - to whit: "For the real nutjobs looking to engage in chemical lobotomy ...however is roughly as stupid as drinking 190 proof Everclear straight from the bottle." and a completely false statement: "The leaves of the marijuana plant are generally only used by enthusiasts who need "filler" to mix in with the buds that they smoke. There is no value (and a lot of downsides) to smoking what is essentially hemp fibres. (Just pick up a rug and smoke it. That's basically what smoking a marijuana leaf would net you.)". The source of hemp fibre are the fibrous (oh there's hint in there!) stems and not the leaves. While the leaves do not contain nearly as much THC as the female flowers (or male flowers for that matter), they, and to a far lesser extent, those fibrous stems, do contain THC.
