You want a medal for writing a script? Sure: here it is!

Nice

Folks, this is why we work in IT. The geniune gratitude of a user for a task well done - be it simple or otherwise - makes up for a great deal of dickheaded twuntery we all have to put up with.

This guy deserves his medal, if only for making something happen in a workplace that, like many of ours, seems to do all it can to prevent anything at all from happening.

Apple finance overlord Oppenheimer: I love Apple, but I gotta get this pilot licence. See ya

Sad to See Oppenheimer go

Turnbull appoints Simon Hackett, Justin Milne and Patrick Flannigan to NBN Co board

Re: Simon Hackett?

Agreed. And it gives Turnbull the capacity to back-pedal. If the likes of Hackett state "Implementing FTTP will save x billion over 50 years compared to maintaining FTTN + copper" then Turnbull can recommend the implementation of FTTP with a straight face. After all, we all know he wants to, but is currently forced to answer to two chumps and a retard.

New iPad mini gobbles Retina display, 64-bit brain, puts on little weight

@JDX, you're right of course, but I still get the phrase "Rectal Display" run through my head whenever I see "Retina Display"... though I imagine that it's just a touch of Applephylactic shock on my part.

Re: @Dave 126

"They've created and popularised the walled garden, which every other market player now wants to emulate; established the paradigm that a computer you buy isn't really yours; systematically eroded openness and customisability in computing architecture; unleashed a ridiculous and litigious firestorm that has stifled innovation the world over and benefited nobody but a bunch of greedy patent lawyers."

Best argument I've read on el Reg for a very long time. Well done, sir. Apple may do many things well, but those you mention are a detriment to our industry. And we're here because we love this industry, right? Not because we hate it and want it to die, strangled by the likes of Apple.

Re: There is no Tim Cook.

@dogged, a million thanks. The "Tim Cook looks like someone and I can't quite place it" thing has been bugging me for ages...
