@ Mage - Meaning a full 39% or parents are not sane
Like it sez, really. And no, 100% isnt an upper limit
Me too - on an old fashioned typewriter, to boot. And, boy, could she type!
Whadya mean "Buzzword Bingo" The word "leverage" wasn't used ONCE in any context, let alone as a verb. The announcement was obviously writtem by a rank amateur.
Please, can we stop the reject HR consultant buzz-speak? Whats wrong with "both used insecure SMBv1 shares"?
Ah yes, long time sinceupon I worked on high speed line printers. One was test run but without the tinsel thingy on the paper exit. Picked up a wedge of printout with one hand, went to flick the perforations with the other to get the tear off started and got one hell of a belt. Data 100 that was, in Hemel Hempstead. Part of CDC, if I recall correctly. <waves at any old lags>
That's plane to see
Have you tried "Fences"? If you can find an older version, that's free. Install and persuade it not to update, you're home and dry.
Icon says it all
Is that you, Willie?
Police went on to say they have shot 4 black male suspects.
Just with more money
As has been pointed out before: the cloud is where lies Cuckoo Land
Have you started employing out of work HR consultancy rejects? Whats wrong with "when we asked her"?
that and using LinkedIn
Where Cuckoo Land is
Now: just piss off.
the best Google and the morons at Amazon can do so far is to offer me more of what I have just bought or just looked at. That's IT.
They then top it off by telling me what other people looked at (as if I should give a rats arse), what's "trending" (Why should I even give a shit, let alone a rat's alimentary canal?) and what other people bought as well (WTF?)
Look, Google and Amazon, et al: piss off for a bit and get advertising right in the first place. Tell me what I want BEFORE I have found it and please understand tat I don't give a flying fuck what other people looked at/bought, what else other people bought or what is "trending".
Get that right and serve inconspicuous, non-animated ads that don't distract from what I am trying to read, don't chew swathes of bandwidth and don't slow my PC to a crawl and I may begin to consider that you are offing me a worthwhile assistant that can work with me, rather than shoving down my throat a dirty creep in a greasy raincoat hell-bent on following me around.
Until then please; just piss off
Amen to tyhat - and they are still performing! Found a concert a week or two back so going to see them in November
Good thing they aren't doing anything critical - like running an airline. Oh, hang on a mo............
"The Register also reached out to IBM"
What? Have you just employed an out of work HR consultant?
What's wrong with "The Register also asked IBM"
It's not just your belief:
His name was "Dick"
or, at the very least, "Willie"
You mean you are STILL with them?
BT have an awful lot of previous phorm and vermin media aren't that pleasant
There is no way of Gods earth they have improved THAT much
Back in the late '80s I was working at a place which had embraced IT in the form of an Alphamicro mainframe with a bunch of dumb terminals (big diskpacks stuff - all of 30meg a time).
One of the sales guys was regularly producing ALL his stuff using the spreadsheet tool:letters, quotes, the lot. Was most surprised when I showed him the text editor.
How much does commercial TV turn over. How much is that per household and from where does that money ultimately come? Remember, you may not buy a specific good or service but you are sure to be feeding the overall figure, either directly or indirectly even if separated by many steps (and their profit margins on cost)
Yes, but only occasionally. The idea of each show having a guest host was inspired and has given rise to some excellent exchanges.
I live in high hopes of continued excellence in the next series

@Jake: Reference is from 2001: A space Odyssey

Just think: GitLab may NEVER HAVE HAPPENED if the BOFH had been published earlier in the year
unable to process checks.

@Stumpy: Or worse. A Daily Mail "jernalest"
Its not as if BT have previous phorm. is it?
That's just nuts
He is supposed to give me "highly efficient and personalized shopping" - would that be the same as the bollocks with which I am currently presented online: I buy an $Article and am almost immediately presented with ads for more $Articles. Hullo creepy, I am all $Articled out.
At customers'r'us, we believe that increasingly retailers will be separated by those who treat us like human beings and those who slurp data and use it to grow and optimise (or optimize) the shopping experience. TFTFY
me: "Hullo. Microsoft security. How may I direct your call"
Does seem to work quite well
Maybe make gun ownership only possible for those willing to adhere to the Second Amendment and who are prepared to actually be be part of, quote: "A well regulated Militia" and not a ragtag of individuals who want to wave guns around
