...and talk some more about Brexit?
Do you really share your bank passwords with anyone who politely asks?
We are so doomed...
How Sun ended? Bought for $5.6 billion. Not exactly the worst result if you were a major shareholder.
If lost in a forest go always down. You will reach a stream or gully and leave the forest along it. Going up will inevitably end on a hilltop.
I'm shocked, shocked! Websites are created by incompetents!
Why people still bother with this application becoming worse and worse with every "upgrade"?
Out of nostalgia?
Enigma is now in the news again due to a new book titled "X, Y & Z: The Real Story of How Enigma Was Broken" by Dermot Turing, great nephew of the famous man.
According to its review in the Nature journal, it also tells the forgotten story of the Polish cryptographers who saved Turing at least a year.
The review is here:
That's why some people call them giant planets.
The man who killed the Nokia phone business was Ballmer. He sent Elop to Nokia and Elop burned the platform without giving any replacement soon enough to stop the slide. He announced Nokia will be 'Windows only", The day he did that, I told my wife "Nokia is committing suicide". I was right.
However Nokia itself (the company) survived also due to Ballmer. His decision to buy the phone part of Nokia saved them making iit possible to pay off debtors. Microsoft wrote off all that money as loss the next year but that was not Nadella's fault. Nadella just stopped the large money stream going straight to a black hole ear after year.
What do you get if you copy the URL? If the copied URL is not complete it may not work.
How stupid would that be?
He should have kept all his heroine in the cloud.
Put in charge an Artificial Intelligence.
What can go wrong?
There's n cloud. There are only other people's computers.
There is one advantage of using Firefox, or another Mozilla code base browser. No large company needs to have all my browsing history.
The new version is:
COLLUSION IS NO CRIME
Indeed. However, they were fans who refused to accept the warnings at face value even when they came directly from the Redmond mouth.
Last year I could not get some Windows Phone users to comprehend why no sane developer would invest any money into new apps for the platform. They lived in a world where Windows Surface will save the day soon and very soon and meantime they could always buy a private import from Asia.
Which part of not-obvious the patent office cannot understand?
Also there is prior art, for example the remotely controlled orgasmatron Barbarella was forced to use in the 1968 movie.
Real life in the 21th century pushes me to being paranoid after I managed to spend some decades laughing at all the IT conspiracy theories.
Wonder of wonders. One minute after I posted the above complain, I checked on my phone if there is an upgrade. 99% of time there is nothing. This time an upgrade to Oreo awaited.
Thank you The Reg. You acted really quick!
Is Google complaining that everybody uses old versions of Android? It should definitely talk to the mobile companies who sell the phones. I am not able to upgrade to Oreo even with a quite recent phone. Maybe I should not complain as I at lest receive security updates.
I used to play Monopoly long enough to earn that the important thing is to have the Get out of Jail Free card.
I came here to look for the obvious HAL 9000 joke. I wasn't disappointed.
So iit seems HAL should have been down to business. Luckily it was year 2001 and the study wasn't yet published!
Beta testing of the operating system is a job for end users, not the developers. This archaic system Torvalds sticks to explains why Linux cannot dominate anything except smart phones and supercomputers. Oh, wait...
Ireland will still be a EU country. Cutting cables to it may result in Europe cutting off Britain in retaliation.
Let me become a typical voter for a moment:
"I believe in flat Earth, alien abductions and in government conspiracies to spray me with aluminum from planes and to induce autism through immunization shots. Should I support a soft or hard Brexit?"
"This is exactly what the majority of voters voted for."
Not in Scotland and Northern Ireland and any kind of hard Brexit will facilitate losing both.
He stated so himself so it is almost as certainty true as if Mr. Putin said so.
Modern phones are not replaceable batteries. So the producers need just wait until the batteries run down creating a new boom in sales which journalist will attribute to some new irrelevant features.
Our sun did not even exist when the Sausage entered the Milky Way.
I wonder if our very existence is due to the disturbance caused by a sausage?
...rejoining the United Kingdom!
We await you, o mighty Surface Phone!
Or rather a millennial one. The followers believe that the thing they wait for (end of the world or Surface Phone) will come on such and such date, and when the date arrives and nothing happens, they happily switch to another date.
Maybe human psychology makes us do such stupid things?
I have some really old Windows games I like which work fine under Wine but not on any version of Windows since WinXP.
I would claim I'm an early prototype of a millennial.
As Lawrence Lessig has famously stated “Fair use is only the right to hire a lawyer”.
The very reason EU wanted its own navigation system was that the US refused to give military grade signal to its allies. Britain worked hard on making rules which make it impossible to give such a high-quality data to third countries. Now iit is a third country. Need I to say anything more?
This should not happen. He was told by his bosses to continue working so he had at least an oral contract. That he could not actually work was also not his fault because he kept trying.
He should sue.
That explains why the Hunger novel by Hamsun was even possible in late 19th century Kristiania (now Oslo).
I produce my PDF with LibreOffice. It is very efficient. A presentation produced by Impress (the LibreOffice counterpart of PowerPoint) decreases its file size 2-4 fold when exported to PDF with 90% quality which is good enough even for a big screen. Plus the slides look as intended on every computer.
The downside you do not have animation (with the exception of slide transitions). But most animations in presentations are a distraction anyway.
Generally this is not a possible solution to a hospital as a whole. It certainly needs to access the national health insurance system(s), prescription systems, vendors and possibly many others.
Maybe some crucial infrastructure may be kept offline for security but than you need to revert back to 20th century technology having to burn DVDs of all the scans etc. and carry them manually to computers of doctors.
ANSI C is good enough for the scale of project I do. If I really needed to start a big multithreaded project I would think of something created for that purpose, but most probably that would not be C++.
All the best to all Google partners and customers, regardless whether they can get to POP or not.
I'm in a good mood, celebrating my new shiny Silver Reg badge :)
The best defense against bad guys with side channel attacks are obviously good guys with side channel attacks. That is of course what National Sidechannel Association (better known as NSA) want me to believe.
Lack of complaints may be caused the number of people (and companies) which upgrade as late as possible to avoid at least some problems.
"Now the EU is being vindictive because it's following rules that we helped lay down? Seriously?"
It is just another example of the UK politicians thinking Britain is "special" and above the rules it itself helped to set up.
MS devs are used to be the masters of your computer and think they can get away with just anything.
Isn't it like the sects which announce a new date of the Doom every second week?
Do not post on Facebook anything you do not want to be 100% public.
I await the day when Facebook Messanger will be terminated.
