Top Euro court: No, you can't steal images from other websites (too bad a school had to be sued to confirm this little fact)
My second day working as a Systems Admin for a large law firm back in mid 2000's, asked to take out a couple of servers that had been decommissioned and free up the rack space for a SAN that was going in.
4 power cables, going into two servers, walked around the back of the rack and yanked all the cables out. Except... I had went to the wrong rack and yanked the cables out of both of the exchange cluster servers, bringing down the mail system for about an hour >.<
It was so tidy and symmetrical it looked identical to the rack I was supposed to take the servers out of... Surprisingly they kept me on for a third day :D
Why can't you install Windows 10 Creators Update on your old Atom netbook? Because Intel stopped loving you
It's Russian hackers, FBI and Wikileaks wot won it – Hillary Clinton on her devastating election loss
I deployed one of these today, no Miracast out of the box is shocking. the CEO I was setting it up for was 'underwhelmed' or maybe even disappointed. His old crappity windows 8 Toshiba could do it no sweat and that this 'flagship' top of the range jobby couldn't project to his TV for presentations.
Well lets just say he wasn't impressed that he would have to buy a separate transmitter.... 'more shite dangling out of the sides'.

My son just called me a 'scrub l0l' he used a zero and everything, is he a hacker? is he having secret online discussions with Anonymous? Is he on the 'dark web' the Daily Mail said the dark web was bad and there was bad people doing bad things there!!
Should I be panicking? should I have him euthanised? (lets just call it a 4th trimester abortion!)
In my yoof - I worked as an engineer in a local PC hardware shop. We had a bignob sysadmin from a large financial that had regional office near us, call up asking sarcastically if we sold fake crap and tell us that the Adaptec SCSI we sold him was 'manufactured wrong' and wouldn't fit in the system.
So we asked him to bring it back.
So I take the card and test it in the back, seems fine. I tell him this, he says 'I have the server in the car' can we try it. sighing, ok, bring it in.
Lumps the server on the counter, cracks it open and then proceeds to try and plug the PCI SCSI card in upside down, the connector edge pointing skywards.....
I take his hand and physically turn it around and slot the card into the PCI slot.
I quote: "oh! I'm used to ISA slots and the components facing the other way"
Nothing has actually happened yet though, other than the vote?
There was no tsunami, no earthquake, no asteroid from space that wiped out the M4 corridor.
Nothing has changed, other than some guys typing numbers into computers followed by the words 'oh my godz PANIC!'
When the trade deals etc change for better or for worse, then sure, get the sandwich boards out and start parading up and down the high street.
Does anyone one else find it funny?
Something went wrong, please try again later
I bought a 950xl with a hub for Continuum just to see what it was like.
So close, yet so far.
The phone should have been targeted at IT professionals. Given it domain features, got the Citrix client and the RDP client working with continuum before release, given it DirectAccess functionality and they'd have been onto a surefire winner.
I have a Sony Android phone and an i6 too, I'll probably end up back on the Xperia, if just for Fing and file commander.
How to not get pwned on Windows: Don't run any virtual machines, open any web pages, Office docs, hyperlinks ...
What the fuck is all this 'Christmas jumper' shit. My work had it and I came in with my 'uniform' on - there should be a grumpy cat Icon.
There used to be an ongoing joke about having to wear the really bad jumper grandma had knitted for you at Christmas, now we have a AmercaniZed bastardisation that has turned into a tradition of Christmas jumper day 'for fun'. Twats.
Ebuyer can piss off too.
"he feels the world may be experiencing more natural disasters and that the increase could be attributable to temperature rises."
"Feels" & "could" - That's proof enough for me!........ -.-
Before there were evil 4x4's and industry's reliance on the dastardly liquid hydrocarbon - we had 24hr rainbows, unicorns and smiling pixies.
The other day I tripped over my lace, DAMN YOU CLIMATE CHANGE! I went straight over and punched a 4x4 driver right in the face - obviously it was his fault.
What we need is a Predatoresque forearm mounted curved fondleslab.
All we need is the mandatory 'hur hur hur hur hur hur hur' sound file.
I was looking at this and thinking hmmm looks nice, nice specs, good review, then it hit me, I remembered the grief I had with a Sony laptop, trying to get a replacement keyboard (user wanted white keys on a black laptop - god knows why)
They did the exact same model in silver with white keys, so you'd think that phoning up with the part number and asking for it in white would be a simple process - ahahahahahh no.
After much bandying around from department to department, manager to manager and absolutely hours on hold, days waiting on call backs, USELESS customer support I got no where and told them to shove it and told them that no Sony hardware would ever cross my palms again. That also reminds me I need to cancel my pre-ordered PS4!
