... Arcserve is still a thing.
Surely you missed "and sometime Kermit the Frog vocal imitator"
And may $DEITY have mercy upon Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland?
Nailing jelly to the wall since 1962 - one day some of it will stick, purely by the laws of probability.
See also the Rutherford-Geiger-Marsden Experiment for similar probabilities.
BT own less of theirs than you think too - all of those lovely VDSL2 cabinets are owned and operated by Huawei... under contract to BT.
Indeed - but often a decent ISP will not add a mark up anything like the obscenity that BT Retail do.
BT Openreach wholesale line rental charge is £86.72 pa (ex VAT) - (£7.23/mo ex VAT / £8.67/mo inc VAT)
So even at £11.99/mo they're making £3.32 just for paying themselves...
I've been online since 1990 - in all that time I have never once accidentally stumbled upon porn - sure I've found it *when looking* but never inadvertently.
What am I doing wrong?
I may have done that exact modification a few dozen times in my youth... We used to use ¾" black tape to make it look kosher...
See also River Browney(e) near Durham for similar japes.
HMLR doesn't act in Scotland (we have The General Register of Sasines, the oldest national land register in the world) - UK registry?
Because the underlying service (WLR2) is under a tenner if you're a communications partner (like BT Retail or A&A or Freeola or Sky or VM or...)
A&A & Freeola have taken the laudable decision not to add a markup of 70%+ the others - not so much
"Mundle added that the final prize would be provided by Louise Vuitton"
Is that owned by Kevin Cline?
... start the rollout in the sticks. There are still many places around here that still only have a spotty 2G signal from one network. No 3G, no 4G.
Nah, it's either "a couple of hours" or "a good couple of hours" in my experience of Ireland... Mind my colleagues in Tipperary thought I was mentally unstable for driving "all the way from Belfast" in a oner, no stopping...
Lucky you. I get 28M now on a "fibre" line with 1.35km of copper & 75m (yep seventy five whole metres) of actual fibre. When it was installed, I got 45 and that was ok. Now more people have gone "fibre" (same 75m of fibre + up up 1.5km of copper) crosstalk has killed it.
Proper fibre to the premises needed 10 years ago, not now.
USwitch don't have any skin in this game then?
Oh, their entire business model relies on affiliate type fees when you switch phone/broadband/leccy/gas.
I'll stick to my SIM only contract with AYCE everything, I'll arrange my own energy switches and I'll continue with my small friendly ISP who also does my line rental at a sensible fee.
I see it is now being reported as a "sophisticated attack"...
Now where have I heard that before? Can someone TalkTalk to me?
I block ads for the same reason I don't visit the Daily Mail - I don't like being lied to.
Pangs? Only when hungry.
Was it ever Richard Branson's? I seem to recall he had only around 10% in the enterprise (as usual with Virgin, minority stake but branded his way because apparently people like that sort of thing)
EE sure are fitting in to the BT group's corporate ethos well. I expect the next thing will be connection charges on top.
Loose leaf tea allows so much more control & the tea tastes better.
.... we're all busy compiling our 16384-bit encryption clients?
He doesn't seem to grasp that trade with the EU not possible on a bilateral basis with each member...
So a perfect candidate for Brexit Minister.
So - OFCOM fines $MOBE_OP (stop laughing at the risible idea that OFCOM will actually do anything of the sort, they're a regulator so they don't actually do anything that they're supposed to) for poor performance that is probably more or less impossible to definitively establish.
Subsequently $MOBE_OP's profits are depressed so they put up my contract price to recover the "lost profit" presumably?
Remind me who is being served here.
... working in the stores of a company that was then part of the Ministry of Defence....
The head of stores was told to order 144 boxes of Bic biros (medium, black). He duly ordered 144 *cartons* of Bic biros (medium, black) not knowing that a carton of Bic biros contained 144 boxes...
A couple of weeks later - 4 articulated trucks showed up, direct from Bic in France with his biros...
144 cartons of 144 boxes of 100 biros. All black medium. A lot of biros.
They were still using them 10 years later.
... when I was a budding hobbyist electronics enthusiast in the late 1970s when it was run from MD Doug Simmons' kitchen table... I had my 4 digit customer number and was proud of it - sadly the shops have become like Tandy at the end of days and the prices have gone the same way (there was a time when they'd be the first place I'd look for $emergency_widget - now they're amongst the last - even when I'm ready to pay a premium to get it now)
Did they mean Herefordshite? :D
when Zürich is at the northern end of Zürichsee (aka Lake Zürich)?
A bit like saying the river running through Cardiff is the Thames.
Ooooh! Someone is going to contact OFCOM. What is it that OFCOM *actually* *do*? I've not seen anything useful attributed to them - I know what the law says they're supposed to do (but scant evidence of it happening)...
The sudden loss of a large supply means the rest of the grid gets a "shock wave" which means that other lines can become overloaded and protection kicks in. Cascading failure...
Common when there's little supply overcapacity compared to demand... and why the UK imports electricity from France on such a regular basis.
Nobody seems to have defined it yet... they like to tell you it's like an itemised phone bill, but it is so much more than that.
I just did a bit of light Wiresharking on my DSL line and there's an awful lot going on there, even if they "just" harvest DNS lookups and HTTP requests they're going to be snowed under and there's a lot of stuff on there as various devices, OS and apps phone home looking for updates etc...
Quote from the report PDF (page 4, section D.2) linked to:
The mean age, body weight, and height of the subject pool was 23.23 ± 3.46 years, 168.43 ± 9.76 kg, and 70.05 ± 14.33 cm, respectively
So the average participant is 168kg (that's 26½ stone!) and is 70cm tall (that's about 2'4") and thus has a BMI of 343...
I fear more for their longevity than the accuracy of their FitBit
So, avoiding public wifi and using your own 3G/4G connection is the order of the day - i.e. a connection that you know as much as possible about - preferably with a VPN back to a known endpoint (like back to your house)
Once you know how the URL is constructed you can use Google (or another search engine) to search for the part of the URL that is unchanging between hosts - so if they were all at /etc/VidYo/VidYo.html - then you search for that and Google obediently tells you all of them that it can find... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_hacking
In 1971 the UK satirical magazine Private Eye ran a pseudo-item that Queen Elizabeth II "is known as Brenda to her immediate staff" resulting in the name Brenda being used in the media as an irreverent nickname for the Queen
These premises passed by fibre - does that include me where I am 250m from the cabinet (straight line along a straight road, with houses on it and ducting under it) yet my line is 1375m long (as measured by BTOpenreach's reflectometer) to the exchange... 1300m to the cabinet.... It would be almost excusable if the circuitous route it took to the cabinet was the direct circuitous route - but it takes a circuitous diversion even from that.
The joy of "Superfast" "fibre" broadband at 22-24M (yes, that's the line speed range) - with 75m of fibre in 1.375km of actual line length - chances of actual fibre before hell freezes over, near enough nil as to make no difference... chances of G.Fast making a blind bit of difference, similar. Wish I'd had a tenner on Leicester...
... rather to add to their FAQ. Had a reply in 15 minutes - followed by a phone call at an agreed time and my answer is in the FAQ.
I can't fault the devices or the support.
I only installed Carousel & Mailbox to get the free extra gigs in my Dropbox :)
The answer is to jail the board members responsible and sue them personally for the entire costs associated with their trial and incarceration.
This may have a short term net positive effect on the Exchequer whilst minds are concentrated.
EXCLUSIVE: ITV camera catches the moment before Simon Cowell's trousers were sent forward in time.
Advertising based on your habits is pointless though - my washing machine died, I browsed a lot for a new one. All my adverts *after* I'd bought one were for washing machines. Don't know about you folks, but I only need the one...
>>According to the mayor and TfL, the number of people killed or seriously injured fell to its lowest level since records began during 2014
So - was 2014 a blip (high) or is 2015 (to date) a blip (low)?
Where's the base datum?
So... my line (I live 350m from the exchange by road) which is 1750m long (shortened by a whole 85m by the upgrade to "fibre") runs entirely in ductwork that has been there since the house was built (the trenchlines right back to the exchange are still entirely visible in the roadway from the entry to the development)
Do I get any option to get FTTP? Of course not. Amazingly I got 42Mbit sync speed (with very low error count) at the point it was installed. That's down to 33Mbit sync speed now. Won't be long before I'm down to the speed I had on ADSL2...
Surely the Openreach arm should be entirely hived off from BT (at FMV) into an independent trust for the common good for proper equal access.
Intel has had plenty of knockers in its time - but these ones are well smart.
because BT route the copper 1500m from a cabinet that is 350m away (yes, there is a road and duct that goes the short way)
Can I be the first to say "What a Siri™ boy" :)
>>The current system doesn't have a reliable way or even attempt to capture the difference between 'can't be arsed' and 'none of the above'.
Turn up, spoil your paper --> I'm bothered but you're all a shower of bastards and not worth my vote.
Don't turn up --> can't be arsed
>>I've always wanted a none of the above, but realise it will have a majority way beyond everyone else.
You have that option and always have had. Spoil your paper. They show the spoiled papers to the candidates and agents...
Especially when the actual wiring is outsourced to Kelly Communications...
You have always been able to spoil your paper... Drawing a huge cock & balls is my usual spoiling tactic.
