"Hint: Virtual servers aren't run in bags of gas, you know"
Surly if they are in the cloud?!
We already could be!
Come on, spill. It was iTunes wasn't it?!
Thank you! All of the sex, booze and drugs made for a really a fun 4 years.
Now lets talk about why you keep taking money out of my pay slip every month? What is all that about, I thought people like you paid for it?! What you didn't have to pay for your degree at all? I guess it is actually people like me that are not paying for yours too.
"Just another paperweight as I believe it requires a $10/m subscription to be able to access your recordings."
"then I'd be on the first train out-of-town to P45 land"
I am lucky that travel isn't part of my contract, so they would have issues firing me for refusing to travel. America is on my list of no-go places recently.
From my law lectures you can still use the trojan defence, but good luck proving it.
Most expensive watch I ever bought was my pebble steel, and it is perfect for me. I hope it isn't impacted too much once the pebble servers are turned off.
Red, white and blue Smart Meters!
"Consensual homosexual S&M practices are illegal in the UK."
Slaves... did I say slaves?!
My slaves are always consenting and are never able to run away -->
Great another fricking adapter. Just what we are missing in our lives.
"no location data reached Play services" it wasn't that it was requesting the location that was the bug, it was that it never got back to google!
"Drop your water bottle. You have 15 seconds to comply."
If the developers are from the same company I work for the result would be a count down:
But Wales also did very well from EU Handouts and voted to leave, which still shocks me!
Unless you travel to America and use a computer when they can only show you the US library. It is location specific, not users registered location.
For what it is worth I do agree that I would rather be able to use a VPN to the country I am registered in. I used to have my router configured to a VPN in London (being UK based) but had to remove that after the restriction came into play.
I am sure Netflix would much rather not spend the extra money on the VPN! Why would they want to limit content, I am sure if they had their way everyone would be able to access everything, making it attract more people = more money. Instead the content providers are saying you can't show it in X,Y & Z countries.
Yes it is annoying (I was part way through Suits using an American VPN), but I can hardly begrudge Netflix for it.
"I live in North Wales. Could you explain this phenomenon?"
It is that thing that happened once in 1964, caused localised panic and the weather stone was dry for the first time in recorded history.
"What happens when it fails, and passengers are trapped in a vacuum with the next car hurtling towards them at Mach 1? How long does it take to plasma cut them out?"
As opposed to a plane which will just fall out of the sky.
"However, a Post Office spokesperson said only some of the group's 11,000 branches were affected..."
10,999 I imagine, that 1 branch was probably Dores (near Inverness)
"No-one needs Nest. "
For a moment I thought this was a tech site . No-one needs have the tech in there house. Kettle... use the hob, toaster... use the grill, washing machine... use the sink.
I know I don't need 3 tablets, 2 laptops and a desktop, but I am a geek. I like gadgets.
"Leave OUR cars out of it - we don't tell you want you can and can't do in yours."
You might want to give this a read:
Better off than with HSBC!
> Strictly policed speed limits I also find dangerous as it is easy to engender road-rage for travelling below the speed limit and blocking those behind who may have cruise control...
Laziness is no excuse. Remember it is a speed LIMIT not a speed TARGET. Drive at 3kmh below the LIMIT then you have that bit of flexibility, everyone is a winner ay. Although it may take you an extra minute (heavens forbid) to arrive at your destination.
Further more if you have cruise control on and notice you are approaching the car in front drop down the cruise control a couple of KPH, you will hardly notice the difference (3km/h is half of walking speed after all).
I heard the same about you
May I point out that mountain rescue didn't rescue her. They also are a voluntary service, and a charity. No money from the tax payers for these girls and boys. All fun raised.
I have also never heard a single MRT member complain about having to rescue someone. Even the ill prepared. Although I did get moaned at for finding the most awkward place to put myself while being a victim for a training exercise.
I bought some Acrow Props last week (for supporting a large concrete balcony while I destroy it), which are not exactly the sort of thing you buy regularly. Since then, I have been getting adverts for Acrow Props... but I just bought 10 (4 more than I strictly need), why would I want to buy more?!
Perhaps they are in Wales. We seem to her a disportionate number of both rugby players and people who abandon their cars in stupid places.
Abroad I use TPB, here stuck with a TPB Proxy :(
Preferably the one that implemented DevOPs, as they know how we work...
to it could have been the 3 people that work there then...
El Reg appears to be supporting the hand that forces IT to do rubbish things rather than biting the hand that feeds IT.
If your house is in Mars count me in!
> Why would a DDoS result in a 500 server error?
Loads of traffic passed through the apache sever in the DMZ to the Web Server(s) in the background. Causes the webserver(s) to grind to a hault and lose connection the the apache server in the DMZ. Apache server will see this as a 500 error.
> Try "educating" instead of "executing".
Never mind the Beeb, what about El Reg?!
"Even employers NI is really a tax that employees pay."
You honestly think that if your employers didn't have to pay employers NI that you would be paid more?!
Emergency calls will go across any network. So if your phone has the ability to call the emergency services so will theirs.
"Shame, we all lose out."
I don't lose out. I have an android phone.
I thought it was 64.3% of facts are made up?
I used to work in a shop and we had random searches. However we were payed for the time we were in work, so if it took 30 minutes to get through everyone we had an extra 30 minutes pay. This isn't about the searches being illegal, it is about not being compensated correctly for your time in work.
Don't you consider it a bit silly for The Reg staff to be giving instructions on how to disable flash, when some of the adverts use flash?
I wouldn't be offended if I was tagged as a panda. Probably be fairly accurate actually.
