Re: Assange

"as the current pres could not find Canada on a map let alone the UK."

You appear to have mistyped "as the current pres could not find his own arse with both hands, a map, and sat nav, let alone the UK."

In a complete about face...

I once had to deal with a computer that had some Charlie in it.

Was setting up a user's own PC for a "Work from home" thing and the case was falling apart and the CD drive was not fitted properly. Thought I'd do them a favour and sort it out and discovered their drugs stash inside.

Chap 'fixes' Microsoft's Windows 7 and 8 update block on new CPUs

Huw D

Re: Microsoft does not care

If people think it's just moving to Libre/OpenOffice and a decent replacement for Outlook/Exchange to appear for Linux to become a solution then they need their bumps felt.

My clients are Insurers/Finance Companies/Architects/Lawyers. Office and Email are small potatoes compared to the investment in the software that actually runs their businesses. There are no Linux alternatives and I suspect there never will be,

Deeming Facebook a 'publisher' of users' posts won't tackle paedo or terrorist content

Huw D

How does Scotland Yard go after a paedo, for example, who happens to be posting from, say, Cambodia?

They wait until they come back to the UK and hand their computer in for repair?

D'oh! Amber Rudd meant 'understand hashing', not 'hashtags'

Huw D

People in power that don't understand technology make statements about technology that people who do understand technology rip to shreds.

Amber Rudd isn't the first and she sure as hell won't be the last.

When NOT to get a date format wrong

Asked for a tattoo design when I was in Austin, Texas. Simple thing. A date in a banner.

The artist asks "What date?"

"4th November 2016"

*scribbles away*

"How's that?"

"Mate, that says the 11th of April... Can you do it in words..."

Pint

Re: arguably the UK’s most famous ginger man

a) Apologies for the typo on "heroin". I sent myself to bed with no supper for that one.

b) Frankie Boyle tends to stereotype all Scots as heroin addicts and I was using that route, honest. ;)

c) Pint of anything would be great.

Petulant Facebook claims it can't tell the difference between child abuse and war photography

Huw D

Re: Are you, or have you ever been, a child?

Woah..

The comments on the Wiki/Virgin Killer article contains this bit of prophecy from "Steve".

" WARNING - link to image of genuine child abuse

- The child within the linked image is not simulated

This has been commented upon several times already, but in case you missed it:

- This image is not simulated

- The child is obviously a minor

- The child is naked

- The child is obvious distress

- The image is not artistic

- THIS IS NOT A JOKE

Not BSODs, but the Win XP(e)? based screens that Nottingham City Transport use for route information and CCTV display can regularly be seen with a "Your system is low on virtual memory..." dialog box obscuring the "Next Stop" part of the screen.
