Wow, I can only assume that's because they've got so few customers left that whilst 99% of them complain that still only leaves under 1,000 complaints.
Have you been out in your local High Street recently? I'd say the B-Ark is a definite favourite for the origin.
I might be affected but I no longer have an Amazon account and have never had an Amazon data slurper either so I don't see how.
Is the "pet water fountain" in question a cat mate? I only ask as it'll cost you a bloody fortune in filters and you'll need to brush up on cleaning the motor out when it gets clogged up (guess what I did last night). There's a nice chap on Youtube who's got a very informative video on how to dismantle it.
How does that work for places like TFL? One of the buildings (the management one) has marble washrooms, all lovely and shiny and the other 2 buildings are apparently dreadful.
Webmail. I'm surprised that they use Java, I'd have thought that was a bit advanced for them, I was thinking more cgi.

Does shameless self promotion not count as advertising then?
Didn't the EU try to get them to remove IE but their defense was it was part of Explorer and therefore integral to the OS? Does the same apply with Edge because as far as I can tell it's not part of explorer at all so surely it can be removed?
" led by the UK's information commissioner"
You may as well have appointed some roadkill to investigate, I doubt the OIC can even spell privacy let alone know what it means.
Yep, I've got 3 squeezebox radios and a squeezebox controller/receiver on my stereo, all running off an HP microserver running squeezebox server, it's been like that for 10 years or so, not a problem so far.
I seem to remember we had a similar issue with pigeons at a certain spread betting company, not quite as funny as the tech who kept going up to the roof to "inspect" the conenction during the summer without realising that there was CCTV up there and we all knew he was strpping down to his budgie smugglers and sun bathing.
So, does iTunes work properly yet on Windows or does it still self destruct constantly?
Yes, 100 years ago.
Ours are Password123
AWS users felt a great disturbance in the cloud, as millions of S3 instances cried out in terror.
Much as I'm loathe to defend him, I have actually set off a fire alarm in a pub before through vaping (well, 3 times within a 5 minute period actually), although it was in a very small room and I am one of "mix your own" types who puffs a heavy VG based mix, I might add that I use no flavour though, just VG and nicotine (<1%).
I reckon the EU can use Conor McGregor and the UK can use Anthony Joshua.
Whacking the ring with a hammer?
I'm just curious as to the noise it made, I'm thinking......
Ah, the BBC and Flash, remember when they last revamped their website and removed most of the text based stories and replaced them all with video feeds ripped out of the news channel? Cue a much touted "try our new mobile site" which was supported by little to no mobile browsers, I wonder how many readers that cost them?
And now I have an answer, they've been borderline before, specifically ME, Vista, 8.0 but this really takes the p155. All of our work systems have already switched to various flavours of Linux, AWS and Postgres due to exorbitant MS licensing now WIndows itself has become untenable, I guess we see where Linux goes. Apologies I have just taken the team for refreshments and 5 pints later I'm a tad wobbly.
Shouldn't that read "Argos is CURRENTLY a subsidiary of Home Retail Group" seeing as Sainsburys' got the green light to buy them last week?
The single best moment of Silicon Valley season 3 hinges around tabs vs space indentation and I'm sufficiently with Richard that I started getting annoyed on his behalf and yelling at the screen.
I watched the trailer up until the warbling started and it looked pretty bad, Justin Lin was a poor choice and Pegg without Edgar Wright isn't really that great at anything production or script based. It's a shame as the first two films were enjoyable, although yes they were retreads.
But I always assumed he shouted "Runaround..... NOW!"
I was talking on a forum discussing what sort of database compliance we had, I said "I'm an ANSI boy", boy, sooner than you can shake a fish at the moon I had an email through from Neil Gaiman's lawyers, it's just not on. It's almost like that time our IT department got sued by Jupiter for mentioning Io.
It has but I think most of us were reticent to uninstall it because of our bookmarks and the pain in the arrrssss it is to move them over. Fortunately the new malware helped us along with that problem by adding extra impetus.
The W10 uninstall. I don't want Candy Crush thanks, or half of the other crud you decided to chuck on there, so I uninstall it only to have Windows 10 reinstall it. From what I've seen written on boards by multitudes of others this is standard behaviour, sorry MS but you're only having one machine, the others are all staying W7.
I'm not a huge Bowie fan, I like the odd song here and there but the one thing for me that stands out about him was that I never heard anyone say anything detrimental about him (with the possible exception of his drug taking). The media never really slagged him off, there's never really been any gossip about him and the friends I have "in the industry" never had tales and they have tales about everyone. To my mind if he managed to walk that tightrope without falling off then he must have been a genuinely decent human being and for that alone he should be mourned.
Unless they're used in mass production lines where they're regularly turned into vapour, i.e. in a bakery. What happens when to the excess fluid when you bake a cake? It turns into vapour. Where does that vapour go? Into the air. Has anyone working in a bakery ever died from inhaling cake vapour? Err....
And they're likely inhaling a hell of a lot more vapour than me. Carry on though, have your opinion and I'll carry on vaping within the law, in pubs, in clubs, I'm polite, I ask first.
Fine by me, as long as you move to another pub, it's all grand.
I vape Vanilla, and by Vanilla I mean from the supermarket proper Vanilla (not Mexican beans as there have been health issues with that), I also buy Vegetable Glycerin from a baking supplier, the only thing I have an problem with the provenance of my Nicotene which I buy from a well known Vape shop chain, everything else is designed to be used in baking and I mix it myself. Anyone complaining about my vape (and there have been a few) gets a reasoned argument along the lines of "do you eat cake?".
My understanding is that the character wielding the weapon is obsessed with Jedi relics, hence him using one.
Still not a patch on Brighton when the Woz graced us with his presence.
SQL Server 2010 was released as 2008 R2 because Microsoft hadn't finished it in time, so your concept of 2 year release cycles is accurate.
He scared the living crud out of me as a kid. Kids these days are too wrapped in cotton wool, we need more stuff like Davros in Doctor Who, make the buggers have nightmares. And while we're on it, bring back The Spirit of Dark and Lonely Water, the kid getting fried getting his frisby from the substation, the kids on the building site, is that a tractor left with the keys in it?
Why are you putting that jacket on me? What sort of a jacket ties up at the back? I'm fine I tell you! What are you doing here doctor? What's that injection for? No, I'm fine, I'm fine I'm...............
All I want to know is... does it support any decent 3rd party VPN connections? The original Surface Pro only supported MS VPN connections, no 3rd party support at all (from what I read anyway) and most VPN providers wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. Give me a product I can connect to home and work machines from with the added benefit of playing video plus web surfing and I'll buy it.
I know the acronym from somewhere but I just can't quite place it, it must have been quite a while.
I'd say that it gives away quite a lot about John Hurt's Doctor, mainly that he's so hated because of what he did to stop the time war, although quite what that might be isn't even hinted at.
I hadn't noticed that it was magnetic but I've just checked and you're right and I'd wager that you're bang on about the accessories, although quite why anyone would lug a zoom around for a camera of that quality (it's not too bad on low light but for action shots it's all blur).
No, I said it was cheap and nasty, the case looks and feels like a Storage Options Scroll Essential. The screen is beautiful but that's all, the camera on the back is fugly. So presumably if you're not trolling you have one? And you can tell us all what your likes and dislikes are then? And perhaps you could even stop hiding behind a troll account?
I have no idea what a Nokia 2310 even looks like nor do I care. That's the thing about opinions everyone's got one, even if it's just to blatantly troll.
KitKat is a mixed bag. I started doing what I normally do and disable all of the Google services I never use, much to my chagrin half of the phone stopped working, the most crippling being that II turned off hangouts and it disabled text messages. Eventually I found ways and means around a lot of this crap simply by trial and error, I hate the fact that the entire desktop now runs off of the Search service, disable search and it'll turn itself back on as soon as you go to your desktop with the added bonus that it resets your desktop. Saying that it's more fluid than JB and there's some improvements to things like the camera app.
The phone itself is cheap and nasty but the hardware is decent for the price, it's roughly the same size as my Galaxy Nexus but with a larger screen area, decent speakers on the bottom and a seemingly longer battery life. I'm withholding judgement but currently it's "okay".
I knew I shouldn't have posted what I perceived to be a smart arsed comment when I'd been down the gym and needed a sugar fix. I take it back and I'm having a Mars bar.
< pedant>I think it's more likely that they're MADE from CLAY. I'm assuming that's a typo. </ pedant>
That it's now akin to taking the mick out of a "differently abled" kid, it's wrong and I feel dirty doing it.
I set up a new SkyDrive connection to upload a load of photos the other day, I'm not sure if it was Virgin or MS but 20GB took 3.5 days, (by my reckoning that's 0.55mbps), it absolutely killed the connection too.
