...daylight shrubbery to me
Exactly. Bought her indoors a new one last Christmas, because the one I'd bought in 2012 was S...O.......S..L..O..W and didn't hold its charge very long. New one's noticeably more plasticy/tacky feeling though.
Please stop referring to it as a CMS it isn't. It's a blogging tool. Just because all sorts of crazy shit is built on top of it does not make it a CMS, or even a good idea. It's a piss poor insecure mess that I've had to clean up more times than I care to remember.
but not if someone forks Github first.
..why my five year old iPad is like a snail on the tortoise's back.
And another thing: If the battery degradation is so great as to warrant this, why not fit a bigger fecking battery to start with, rather than trying to make every new model even slimmer than the one before. I for one wouldn't mind an extra 5mm thickness in exchange for a battery that pumps out the power for 5 years. It's a premium product and should be bloody well engineered like one.
>the author's been blocked from publishing updates without WordPress review,
How about banned completely with no possibility of remission, or at the very least had his goolies sliced off in the most painful way possible. FTFY.
Oh, you'd think so, wouldn't you?
But read this:
and then go and find a CMS that actually does walk the walk.
... still the same vulnerable-by-design database layer shite that does not support parametrised or prepared queries which have been around for decades. Maybe by the time Wordpress 6 comes around they might actually fix that, but I do not have the lung capacity to endure the wait.
>not having an admin account with the username "admin"
With the delightful new and shiny REST API, a complete list of user names can be exposed simply by poking the URL:
unless you've been wise enough to install a plugin that blocks access for unauthenticated users
...and another thing: Wordpress is *not* a content management system. It's a blogging tool. The fact that lots of people build all kinds of crazy shit on top of it does not make it a content management system. I can pound in a screw with a pipe wrench, but that does not make the pipe wrench into a screwdriver.
I can't help thinking they're kind of missing the point: To be so synonymous with something that your name becomes a verb is surely evidence of significant if not total market penetration.
I always chortle every time I catch one of those tortuous scenes in the remake of Hawai'i 5 0 - the ones where they're trying to convince you to "bing" things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3ug8jrja7M
Guess Micro$oft will be ready to hoover up the honours.
It's rightly said that you should love a woman for her personality. They have at least 10, so you can choose.

Only downside to early Friday beers is that it's flippin' freezing in NZ right now.
Sweet as, bro.
You're right. This boat sleeps 8 people. We know there's only you sleeping on it, but you could have slept in any of the 8 berths, so we're charging you for all eight.
I understand houseboats are quite popular in Amsterdam. Apparently Oracle have at least one slow, old boat that they're not doing anything with right now...
Let me be the first to buy those guys a beer.
What sort of crippled mind thinks it's OK to carry on and run if the user you're supposed to be running as is invalid? Granted, an admin would have to screw up in the first place, but the brattitude being shown by poettering here is staggering.
It's clearly time to Finnish...
I never ever thought I'd be on Apple's side, but if Qualcomm really are trying to have their cake and eat it, i.e. "here, buy our chips, oh, and about that licence fee", then hell has truly frozen over and I have to hope Apple wins that round. Just that one though.
..and the correlation between pay and no underwear most probably correlates even more closely.

Anybody exploiting these flaw?
NSA: <fingers_in_ears>La la la</fingers_in_ears> Not that we can see...
OK. keep them to yourself then...
...bumbling incompetent oath came up with that? I'll swear nothing good will come of it.
Intermittent issues with PHP-FPM throwing a paddy for the last couple of days. Fixed now so all good.
Just because *you're* not paranoid, it does not mean *they* are not out to get you.
Shooting themselves in the foot. How do they expect to search your gizmos at the border if they dissuade you from taking them on a plane in the first place.....oh.....wait....maybe they're hoping to upgrade baggage handlers to spooks who clone your devices while rummaging through your underwear.
..why Google has a free public DNS. So much for blocking cookies, DNT headers and NoScript. The bar stewards are still watching you.
I can't wait for the first law suit citing the reason for the divorce as the chatbot's adult themed ads based on the hubster's porn filled web surfing history :)
I am a big boy now, and I can manage without the training wheels.
As you were.
>The entire WordPress system is a dog's breakfast.
Feeding Wordpress to your dog would be considered animal cruelty and warrant a visit from the SPCA.
Unfortunately, no. While the wordpress core may be free, a number of plugins are not, and more often than not the user forgets to renew their licence or support or the "developer" who built the site has wandered off somewhere, leaving a dangerously insecure plugin in place with no easy update path. Sometimes these plugins are "recommended" by the latest and greatest theme and thus it's a downward spiral. Revslider was an example from a couple of years back, Gravity Forms being another more recent one. The lack of a core file upload facility and thus the implementation of this function in every godamn plugin out there is the major reason for the crap happening.
>Why should it be folded into taxes?
Why should MY taxes pay for YOUR kids education and YOUR healthcare? I've never been sick a day in my life and I have no kids.
Pretty pathetic argument you make.
99.9% of people watch TV, listen to the radio or use iPlayer.
Anyone with half a brain tries not to publish their email address on line, so that the spambots do not find it. This proposal would therefore appear to be an invitation to spam the user into oblivion, assuming that the associated mailbox might actually need to have a human attached to it.
It seems to me that rather than build a physical wall, ostensibly to keep people out, they are doing everything they bloody well can to build a virtual one. I've always regarded America as a fscked up place full of nutjobs, but it's clear now that the loonies really are running the asylum. This bill may fall, but you can bet your ass/arse that just like the No.4, there will be another one along in a minute.

+1 for "an exercise in turd polishing".
>Sorry, but that now makes it a CMS
...using a monkey wrench as a hammer repeatedly does not make it a hammer. It's still the wrong tool for the job.
Wordpress is not a CMS. It is a blogging tool.
If you want a proper CMS, one that has been well designed with the best components, take a look at www.concrete5.org
...is that it's an overly complicated operating system
+1 for "unmutual"
I am not a number, I am a free man!
@TheReg - what about a Prisoner icon? A nice Penny Farthing or something?
You're not by any chance referring to NZ's Spark, the former NZ Government owned telco?
If a set of outsourced incompetent jokes like Spark, has seen fit to pull the plug on them, then that speaks volumes about how irrelevant Yahoo! really have become.
>>Cabezón Ruiz, a Spanish Socialist Worker's Party MEP, and professional cardiologist
Pardon me, but I'd rather not have an amateur cardiologist - it'd be enough to bring on an infarction.
So, it's unlikely to finish cracking before closing time. Best get to the pub now, then ;)
If you have to explain it, they won't understand.

As other commentards have pointed out, the Achilles heal of Wordpress is the poor quality of some of its plugins, and they should be avoided like the plague. Non-free plugins in particular are a no-no because often there is no patch available.
A lot of people mistake Wordpress for a content management system. It isn't - it's a blogging platform. If all you want to do is blog, then it's mostly OK, provided you update regularly.
If on the other hand you want a full featured CMS, take a look at https://www.concrete5.org. Last time I checked on cve.mitre.org there were barely a handful of issues listed, compared with hundreds if not thousands for Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla.
...or perhaps not!
...they could reduce the traffic by 75% if they allowed annual renewal rather than three months which comes around all too soon....or maybe even allow wildcard certificates which would would render the "20 certificates per domain" limit moot.
99.99% of people watch T.V., listen to radio or stream live video. Therefore, the blindingly obvious thing to do is to scrap the licence fee, the "detector vans" and all the useless twuntards in the licensing and enforcement departments and simply take it out of general taxation (yes, it'll go up a bit, but it's a lot harder to dodge). Some formula linked to census statistics ring fenced so the gubbermint can't dick with it when they need a new nuclear weapon should give the beeb all the cash they need without needing to bung the courts up.
Thank fuck I live in NZ now and don't have to put up with this shit.
