I totally agree, but where is the value, sorry I mean profit?
My sub-exchange caters for 500 homes. If they upgraded the kit when would they see a return on the investment. Likewise why would another provider ask for some rack space when they are unlikely to see a return in any time soon.
That's my point - if you have them and you don't use them then they are of no use. Better to get rid and save a truck load of cash.
That's the thing about nukes - if you have them then you might as well use them. Now I think we all agree that would be a dick move, but at least they didn't have this cash resource doing nothing. Nukes are expensive ornaments. Upon detecting the North Korean nuke the bigger dick move would be to retaliate. As retaliation means everyone is fucked.
Thank fuck I am an amateur then - seriously can someone get that guys IP address and send him some meds.
pass me my emulator and a large glass of milk, for tonight I receive a syntax error from my childhood!
Pagan ceremony is no good when tackling browser issues, what you need is dark magic.
but Trump wants Bill Gates to close parts of the internet.....you cannot avoid the Trump!
I love that SF likes tech and enthuses.
I love that he's a wit, and a lot of fun.
But for crying out loud it seems like someone should assist with his portfolio.
*that is not an offer BTW merley an observation
When I had my small business I used to do all that and frankly what a massive waste of time. I am sure you have a lot of success. I am also sure you have a lot of repeat customers. The fact that you are unaware of how viruses propagate is worrying. MBR viruses have been around for a while and I am doubtful that you are paying heed to them correctly. MBR and VBR can and do still propagate through sloppy techniques such as the one you describe, I hope your BIOS is up to date. You allude to using a sandboxed machine for your wiping activities - I am keen to know how you get your virus definitions updated. You must spend so much time rebuilding that particular device. The only way to be sure is a rebuild and education thereafter. Even though corporations have enterprise anti-virus and a workforce of drones you wouldn't expect them to be happy with an anti-virus removal. Peoples data is worth so much, be it corporations or private individual, and you would be well to remember that. A better solution for you would be to back up the customer data onto your sandbox machine (then scanned) and then a rebuild of the customers device. Not only could you charge a little extra, but your customers would appreciate this extra level of precaution.
sigh - the idea of an AV is to prevent an infection.
There is a difference between an Anti-Virus and a Malware scan and removal tool.
No one has suggested that the Malware scan and removal is at risk, and everyone agrees that this is quite good. As for viruses....well, if you have one then your AV is poor, popping out the drive into a clean machine and running through several different scans is one of the single dumbest things. The only safe way to deal with that infected machine is a clean install.
Why would you risk another machine by mounting the infected drive in it? Think about it, now think really really hard.
Faulty excuse - like everyone has said, when you have a SPOF you have a problem. As for openreach, it's not totally their fault. Take my sub-exchange for instance, it serves 500 houses. That's not many, but most of them are close enough to connect directly to it. There isn't space for the roadside furniture to sit. So what often happens is that openreach cable up the exchange and then find themselves in the predicament of not having a cabinet to fibre up. It would be prohibitive to fibre to the premises so they need another solution.
Also Virgin-Media are having a few niggles.....it's ISIS isn't it!
who won? What is the size of the galactic republic, when does it get added to the units of measurement.
I DEMAND TO KNOW!
Admiring your parcel technique. It left me feeling fulfilled.
Does this mean an improved coverage in some of those awkward parts of the country - namely most of it?
I could never understand having the nacelles on pylons. It looks like it gives the ship a bigger target for stray torpedo. Something like the USS reliant just made more sense.
If only we could construct a reusable vehicle that could glide in the Earthen atmosphere. It could be used to shuttle astronauts back and forth.
If we did I would name it the Space BusPlane
Ahh that's a simple mistake to make, you thought it was BT that was providing the service but in fact it turned out to be BT, if they hadn't of succeeded then in all likelihood it would of been BT but not that BT the other BT. As it turned out it was BT that got the job.
Are they still called printers if they don't print?
NO! I was running through puns, but for the sake of forum entries NO!
+1 sir, as you beat me to it!
Speaking as a vegetarian
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU EATING?
Like everyone else has mentioned - you must be eating the cheapest crappiest bacon ever.
If a vege can point this out, then you have issues dude!
'Merkins discombobulated by Brown Sauce perhaps?
Oh heck no, you can buy the glorious HP in the hallowed walmartian stores
Which is why I have made a note to re-read this article next week and thus maintain the status quo
Does it have to be those rocket motors?
Surely you can adapt, it's been quite a long while now.
Some of us invested in the kickstarter have lost enthusiasm.
If this was my workplace the project would of been scrapped.
Does this mean we can get Trump out of Scotland?
Shouldn't be difficult, them neeps get me windy
For a start he doesn't use gecko sticky pads - rather a type of barbed hair follicle and a form of electromagnetism. This is why Elektro could disrupt the wall crawling ability. Although, if Spider-Man ever stood next to Donald J Trump then can you imagine how much he would frizz that piss coloured foppish hair?
Also, super heroes often exert powers that are difficult to replicate because.....fiction!
The kids aren't angry enough
That the shimmer is a result on the JMC mining ship passing past
AKA the small rouge one
What about aerial bot's?
I happen to know from other news sauces that he does have a yellow colander that he wears as his normal head gear. But it's cold in Russia so he has a hat for his hat.
Just got worse
That is not Optimus Prime!
To be certain this isn't racism I would need to see a horses penis.
Dear El Reg - adolescence should not be muted.
This is how they start the thought control experiments.
Oh dear dear patrick_bateman where or where to begin with your diatribe.
I feel a few people may judge you harshly, and I am indeed one of them. You come across as 'one of those complainers that jumps to their keyboard' ready to spew forth your crap.
You are a keyboard warrior that whilst seemingly presenting facts has managed not only to contradict themselves but also has become the person you wanted to have a go at. A free service is seldom free, and I am sure that you feel you have a valid point. But your analogy is at least as dumb as a shed full hammers. Any system that asks you to register, even with fake info is doing it for a reason. The paranoid among us will decry this is so they can track us.
Clearly you are not technically minded, but that's OK because in these times you can simply turn to the fifteen year old sat next to you in A&E who happens to be watching porn and he will explain this all to you in a series of grunts that only a true ID ten T could understand.
The EE power bar was one of the worst tasting nutrition supplements I have ever had.
Is that a very large swathe of people buy into the Trump Extremism. As that is what he is, an extremist, a terrorist, he orchestrates chaos.
This man is dangerous, people listen to him because he lauds his extreme views with immunity to prosecution. his vitriolic hate diatribes paint a dangerous picture for the future.
No, he said that "Isn’t it interesting that the tragedy in Paris took place in one of the toughest gun control countries in the world?"
But this was about the Hebdo shootings.
It is important to differentiate between the attacks, misquoting him is as bad as him misquoting.
I still lust after a MK2 Lotus Cortina
Does this also include annoying texts, because EE are particularly great at them.
And you can say what you like about Palpatine, but he was not a Tory, but he was a damn fine trade negotiator.
So George Osborne is now a terrorist then?
In its broadest sense, terrorism is any act designed to cause terror, so by suggesting that IS is planning an attack is in a narrower sense, terrorism. Especially as it can be understood to feature a political objective.
This constant scaremongering is pretty pathetic, I doubt that enough zealots have the ability to hack the UK. And surely if they went down the road of hiring skilled attackers then they would presumably have to put themselves to death immediately for paying for this foreign workforce. It should also be worth pointing out that when it comes to terrorism and the UK it is not very effective. During the London bombings on 7/7 there was a range of emotions, but the resounding emotion was akin to mild ambivalence. And that will never do!
Well prison and IT departments are quite similar
Back in the 90's I would search my staff at the pub I managed.
Not because I thought they had stolen anything, but because a few of them were well fit.
