Red/green glasses supplied. Used once, one careful owner. Offers...
I turned off the update to avoid this crap.
They can take CTR from my cold dead computer.
""HMS Sheffield, Falklands" MOD buys the idea of warships armor made out of materials normally associated with fireworks"
Except that contrary to aluminium-foil-hatted myth, Sheffield's superstructure was made entirely of steel.
Carpenter's was NOT a remake, any more than Polanski's Oliver Twist was a remake of David Lean.
I also disabled geolocation, on my iPhone.
When I post a picture of the very nice fish that I caught, I don't want to give away the position of the mark!
Tried that through the app store, but they've removed the 32-bit apps and thus the ability to contact the developer.
I won't be "upgrading", but I will be getting a different phone when my iPhone 6 eventually dies.
surely there'll be quite a few more, just a lot smaller
iOS, safari, Adblock Plus, Umbra.
Works for me.
One major issue with SSDs apart from price - SSDs give no warning of their impending failure. You just lose the data. At least an HDD usually gives some indication that it's dying, so you have time to get any unbacked-up data off it.
Well of course it will be in the last place they look - when they find it, they'll stop looking.
I'd rather keep my Classic Theme Restorer.
...and this is nothing like a bit of impartial journalism.
I can tell you from experience that this situation does occur, frequently, and their attempts to play it down don't fool anybody.
He just popularised the name.
That's what real hipsters use.
taking our jobs...
Yeah, I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 and it bricked my machine.
I reinstalled Win 7 and have never looked back.
...that allows me to delete their crappy health app that I don't actually want and can't get rid of.
His comments about the (monopoly) broadband are unprintable.
I found my old boss looking puzzled by one of our test machines. Apparently it was refusing to boot up.
I checked all the connections - all ok - then asked him to try to switch it on again.
"Aha! I know what the problem is!"
"So what is it?"
"You're trying to eject a floppy disc. The on-button is that one."
Presumably, they learnt from the previous errors of other nations...
which can make it illegal to take photos in certain places
their problem (the police) is that they aren't allowed to reveal if you are in a section 44 area or not
I think we can all see who's "braindead and clueless" here...

Not very racy, I know.
Next one is 10th November 2084
Instead, they'll just automate the removal process.
Then we'll have people deleting anything they don't like.
First observed surely.
and will be easier to find when it finally comes back down to earth, especially if the GPS fails.
Jabba did not appear in the original cinema release in 1977. The "fat bloke" scene was filmed with the intention of adding a stop motion Jabba but was ultimately cut.
It did feature in some later releases with a CGI Jabba, but you can do your own homework.
Turing is rightly recognised for his work.
It's a pity Tommy Flowers never got the same reognition.
Most kids have no concept of the cost of things.
Ask my 7 year-old niece what she'd like for her birthday. She'll probably say a pony, or some crayons.
"..says an anonymous coward..."
Whereas, of course, Winkypop is your real name...
"It makes no difference if my front door has a simple lock or a more convoluted affair, but regardless anyone getting into my home and stealing my belongings is a thief."
I hope that is of some comfort to you when the insurance doesn't pay out, because in their view, although he's a thief, you're an idiot.
"My impression is that two taps can fill faster than the overflow drain can empty."
Yes. Mine does that. I've flooded my bathroom on more than one occasion.
My first phone was a Philips, my second a Nokia, my third a Sony Ericsson. My fourth and current phone is an Apple, but my fifth one won't be.
Other than that, I've always bought from the same manufacturer as last time.
Assuming that you meant similes, they aren't incorrect similes.
They are incorrect metaphors.
Exactly what is happening to me. Getting made redundant because my skills "won't be suitable for supporting the new application", even though it's just a rebadged clone of the original app. Same database, same languages, almost identical data model.
Apparently some cowboys in India are going to do my job now...
beat me to it!
"As a point of fact, the only one of those acoustic couplers I've ever actually seen, was 300 baud. Wackypedia claims the practical limit was 1200 baud"
As my father in 1983/4 had an acoustic coupler with a switch to choose between 800 and 1200 baud, I'd say you haven't looked very far.
Yeah, I had a cold call from BT yesterday, even though I'm on TPS.
Sounds like trout a la creme to me...
...like James T Kirk, she's from Iowa...
