Poor Dave Barnett who hails from Tring,
Has a phone that no longer rings
Microsoft fucked him

with apolgies to Dave Barnet and anyone else affected. its a shit thing to happen.
if you are worried about your kids, make sure that you, not the TV , are their main source of information regarding what they can do with their life. make sure you tell them every day if necessary, that they can be whatever they want to be. encourage and educate them.
in the meantime, leave the incompetent blundering dads in adverts for fucks sake. theres more important stuff to worry about.
on another note on product names, theres a product called "start ya bastard" in Australia to spray into your air intake when your engine doesn't cooperate....thats the best one i ever found...
you make valid points, and society has moved on, which is great.
but do you really think that the examples you raise are anywhere near in severity to what was in the article?
how is it possible to objectively legislate for this? i would say its impossible. all we will end up with is a bunch of nonsense, as per making sure that men arent seen to be useless at household chores in adverts. its a massive waste of time, and, to me , its offensive.....but its ok, i'll get over it ;)
"It's not about who is or isn't offended. It's about how much harm is done to society by the reinforcement of negative or unrealistic stereotypes."
so how much harm is done then? do you know anyone who has been directly effected by being shown a negative sterotype?
how can we tell, objectively, what is or is not a stereotype?
how can we legislate as to what constitutes a valid stereotype, and an invalid one?
what he said above
fucking whingeing idiots with too much time on their hands. ooh, i was offended as i felt stereotyped by a fucking advert.
go ahead, be offended. nothing happens. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHMoDt3nSHs
go out and do something less boring instead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FQktsKvXcg

crazy. just be civil, and just tell him...go home and change otherwise you will ruin your suit. all this BS about getting moved on etc. all you need to do is tell him. I'm so glad i work for myself, i couldn't put up with that crap.

"Been a while, but when I was working at the Uni, one of the lecturers (might have been a grad student, can't remember) emailed the support staff asking "Is email working?" I replied with something like "seem to be.."
Never heard anything back from him."
maybe he didn't get your email...
i was looking at electric cars last year - there was a govt (or maybe council actually) incentive that meant you could get a charging station for free. this wasnt for a tesla though...maybe its different
festool....buy one. no wait, dont buy one. you will end up replacing all of your tools and have no money.

looks like the second guy has a penishand sticking through the box. its probably full of popcorn to scare the girls
I've shifted to buy everything off amazon now. The usual suspects and their shit rma terms / handling can get stuffed ( ebuyer for instance). If anything goes wrong with anything from amazon within a year it's a straight refund no questions, no bullshit, just sorted. The only issue is non vat registered sellers. As I'm vat registered I have to check every item I buy before I buy it as some sellers , even though they sell boat loads of things for hundreds of pounds, aren't vat registered, which makes them 20% more expensive for me. I wish amazon would sort that out. By the way has anyone upgraded to amazon business account? If so what happens with rma's and next day prime delivery? Would be interested to hear.
Marbles credit card still owe me 5p. From 20 years ago. They (actually mbna now I think) send a letter every month to my mums house. I cannot get them to cancel it or for them to stop sending letters. I tried about 10 years ago spent maybe an hour on the phone and the guy ended up saying that it's buried in the system somewhere and that they can't stop it. Ive not bothered to try again.
if it goes off, then it will be bad. why do we really need to know how bad? their answer is just going to be somewhere between "really bad for humans and unbelievably bad for humans " somewhere near the explosion.
if one of those things goes off, there are going to be a lot more of them flying around shortly after. is it going to model that as well?
or rich fat munters.
what with him being an aussie, he is undoubtedly already called john-oh simply as a result of his first name.
so he's actually john-oh oh
which is probably why he was destined for this job all along.
no, he's right - amd drivers are fucking terrible. particulalry their chipset / sata drivers. terrible performance with ssd
you are if you dont have a sh3.
im on the 200 / 10 and its just fine thanks. could do with a bit more upload but its ok.
there is unfortunately noone anywhere near price wise to touch virgins fibre if it has a sh2 in modem mode
then add a pair of Ubiquiti long range ac access points and i have 200mb everywhere wirelesly for my ac wireless clients. bloody lovely.
i cant tell you how good the ubiquiti gear is, and ive tried quite a few different access points in many different properties .at home i have them it in the loft, not even drilled through the upper most ceiling, just hanging from the roof in the loft. penetration to ground floor is amazing, speed is awesome. buy some

or use wsus offline. miles quicker than win update
i also wonder if that would work as a work around for the 7 and 8 update block from ms?
All my win 7 machines haven't noticed. Win 10 you say? Hmm, no, i'll let the guinea pigs find the bugs thanks...wonder what this update will remove...could be network drivers , file share permissions, security software, other software, print drivers....need some popcorn. Still, the phone will start ringing soon and i'll find out how bad it is
"This allows you to remotely control your door, or check if it's open or closed, from anywhere in the world"

the fact that that would be considered progress is pretty much everything thats wrong with IT ....
"rather disappointed the workstation world by making its "most radical Mac ever" insufficiently expandable."
noone was surprised surely? upgrade a mac in any significant way is usually a non starter
ram, yes maybe.
for years if you changed even the disk for something non apple certified you had to buy a speical board from a third party to prevent the fans from running at full throttle all the time

alright, alright,i'll get my other coat as well
yeah, it was a close shave
alright, i'll get my coat... ----------->>
im not buying boots from them then.
good call mate. thats a good rule...
by the way, did anyone ever play supremacy? risk with Nukes....i loved the little plastic mushroom clouds.
im not sure you can be "good" at Risk, you'll be sat there on iceland with a huge army defending northeast canada, youve got guys on alaska, maybe kamchatka if youve been clever / not fucked over by isolated tribes in asia, and you own all of south america too, so loads of guys in brazil, low overheads, lots of extra armies every go and somehow, the bastard with a third of your army in great britain will manage to make the dice fuck you over then go rampaging through north america and then you are fucked.
or the guy sat in australia who sits there for the whole game just amassing 2 extra every go, for hours, doing nothing, and then splurges all over asia like some kind of honeymoon-balled dog with 2 dicks
europe - fuck that, too difficult to hold. africa, not worth it. asia - no chance, everyone will hate you immediately.
i get what you are saying, it may seem unfair, but try starting out on your own, you will appreciate all the help you can get.
you clearly dont have any idea of the uncertainty and risk involved in generating not only your own employment, but the employment of others, either directly from hiring people to work for you as you expand or indirectly by using their services. and also, yes, sick, holiday, pensions, child vouchers, medical etc.
it depends what line of business you are in, but when i started i didnt make very much money for several years.
i do believe it is worth something more than working for the man.
little companies can grow into big ones, generating tax revenue and employing many people (mine doesnt, im too scared to do it, and im too much of a control freak, and im comfortable with making a reasonable living). someone has to start these things, and its risky. surely we can have a little bit of a benefit?
a big mac?
yes. fast start is a giant pain in the arse. ive only recently figured out something that has been bugging me for ages. if you shut down a win 10 pc (with, as i now know, fast start enabled), and then bung the disk in a caddy to move data to it from another machine, and then bung the disk back in the machine, it goes ape shit, runs check disk. then the data you moved dissapears, (actually it turns up in lost files) but it reports the available space to be what it would be if the data is actually there. the first few times i tried this with win 10 (i do a lot of this because i run a repair shop, copy data to data server, rebuild , copy data back) i couldnt figure it out, so i started doing it the other way (copy data from win 10 machine to caddy, but i dont like doing this, id prefer to have their data on my data server rather than having to have lots of external drives hanging around).
its fast start that causes this. turn it off and it behaves itself.
im with you on the turn it off front. dont hibernate, sleep, any of that shit. on or off. all the machines i build these days have 850 pro ssd's in them, and as you rightly say, its 15 seconds to windows from cold, so fast start is not useful there. whoda thought restart to turn off, instead of turn off?
ive got 3 screens, so multiple desktop not really an issue for me. of course now i want 6. once you go black, theres no going back and all
just get rid of
1) the tifkam control panel apps. seems to be random as to which one you get
2) the "change default browser" annoyance. change it. get taken to tifkam page. change it. "are you sure, why not try edge"? just change the fucking thing already
3) add user. just add a fucking user. dont hide making a local account, having to seleect "i dont have this persons login details" , then ask me if i want to use a ms account, then finally get to a local account. just have dropdown if you must. and just give me the win 7 style user management page. not some crap about this user, other users, add a family friend, add a dog. alright, i could net user /add etc
4) if i do a search from the start menu, im not interested in internet results, waiting for 2 minutes whilst it tries to find device manager or whatever. (ok, so i know i can use devmgmt.msc instead...)
5) theres ads in explorer? ive not seen this actually, but it wouldnt surprise me.
i wonder what this update will break / uninstall. usually network cards in my experience, and security programs.
incidentally, ive had a 2 jobs this week on lenovo's with win 10 where a firmware update for some uefi component that i cant remember at the moment borks the external monitor output. just roll back the driver for it and it works. maybe this will help someone
seperate processes sounds great, however, it'll probably always be the Windows update service that causes the problem as usual
hi guys, thanks for this. id forgotten id posted it actually, hence the no response....
im sticking with my note 4. theres nothing else out there even now
yeah, but you can make a device which is waterproof and has a removable battery. watches for instance. for some value of waterproof, like, dropped in bath / swimming pool / beer / toilet, which frankly, is all its likely to be with a phone. they can, they just dont, the cynic in me says its because then yo have to upgrade every 2 years (or replace battery every 9 months in my case)
