Women!

If a woman made the same comparison about men everyone would just laugh.

Re: Where were the generators?

Even of the substation exploded they could have brought in a portable one and had it back working within a few hours. I doubt it would take weeks.

Christopher Columbus

I often think that Nasa go over the top about everything, if Christopher Columbus was to build all his ships in clean rooms at 10 times the cost he would of never have made it to America. Its time humans stopped being such wingers and get their asses into space, there is plenty of good technology out there to stop radiation.

Bitcoin cred boosted by $25m cash infusion into Coinbase

DaveyG

Re: I dunno

Coinbase have no postal address on their website & in my experience they don't answer support emails. If they went out of business tomorrow or were hacked you would loose all your money & would have no way to communicate with them. I'd be cautious with them.

Microsoft 'cautiously optimistic' about Christmas sales

DaveyG

I bought a new laptop with Windows 8 and I had to buy a second copy of Windows 7 just to avoid using the ridiculous new interface. My laptop was twice as fast afterwards! I don't know what Microsoft were thinking.

PS Microsoft, people don't use touch screens with servers. Why did you inflict tiles on that interface as well???

Crack open those wallets: Microsoft is raising software prices AGAIN

Re: No way to get us back.

I'm in the same boat, I don't know why any hosting company would want to sell Windows hosting these days when you look at how far Linux has come on. You cant even buy a decent hosting control panel for Windows!

Brit mastermind of Anonymous PayPal attack gets 18 months' porridge

DaveyG
Thumb Down

Re: When?

Seriously are you mad? Do you know the damage a DDOS attack can cause or cost? The attacks don't just effect Paypal but thousands of other companies who are using the same upstream providers. Not to mention the people who couldn't do business because Paypal was down. That attack cost millions of Euros of damage.

GoDaddy stopped by massive DDoS attack

FBI will have the last Lulz as always. When will these clowns learn.

Facebook goes offline, shares stabilise at merely disastrous level

DaveyG
FAIL

Re: SHARES

The answer is people like you shouldn't buy shares, you would have more chance of making money at a bookmakers or at a casino. Facebook shares are going to crash and burn unless they start making money which currently is unlikely.
