I'm torn between agreeing with you and thinking that you are a tool.

I'm torn between agreeing with you and thinking that you are a tool.
I suppose you could argue that the Royal Navy knew men would watch Scrapyard Challenge and women wouldn't.
For some reason they don't advertise tampons at half time in football matches. It's discrimination I tell you!
Since they started insisting that frontline NHS workers might be able to form a coherent sentence in English, yes.
I downvoted because the joke was obvious and unfunny. I'm not his biggest fan, but OMG TRUMP! doesn't make something funny or interesting.
I bet the only .eu domain you've heard of is leave.eu, which is surely what "safeguard Union values" is about banning.
"safeguard Union values"
Means banning domains similar to leave.eu supporting other countries leave campaigns.
According to The Times this morning, some daft bint thinks the new iPhones are sexist.
But how will you get on the news showing off how rich you are that you can smash up two ipads?
Jesus Tapdancing Christ.
£500 was a justifiable luxury. £1500 for a phone is ludicrous. That's £62/month just to repay the capital for a 2 year contract. at 20% APR, that's £90/month.
Plus a phone plan and you're looking at over a hundred pounds a month.
For a phone.
On the average salary, after tax, that is roughly 6% of take home pay for something which will depreciate almost completely over the two years.
Two things I would like to see:
Allow us to filter out sections that we aren't remotely interested in ( storage... )
Threading for commentards.
Mobile shortcodes ( eg: text hello to 80121 ) are ridiculously expensive to rent. You're talking thousands per month for a dedicated shortcode.
Normally companies will get a free/cheap keyword from an aggregator - in the example, you would only get forwarded anything prefixed with HELLO. But you could have HELLO1, HELLO2, etc.
Who cares, they don't have a soul.
edit: redheads, that is
I have 17TB in my home NAS, of which over 9TB is used.
The problem isn't films, it's TV series, especially when they're HD.
As an example, Halt And Catch Fire ( 4 series, all 1080p ) takes up 130G. That would obviously be considerably more if it was in 4k and if I had a lot more storage, it would be.
If you put your email address in here: https://haveibeenpwned.com/ it might tell you where your details were nabbed from.
pool.ntp.org shows a default 'it works' apache holding page.
That's going to be confusing as fuck in rare but existent cases. Perhaps a new DNS field is required to forward a non-web address to the web address.
A > [ ip of pool.ntp.org ]
TXT > WEB:www.pool.ntp.org
I'd very much like it if El Reg would make a banned word list comprising of the following:
No, to use a drugs analogy, this is equivalent to the councils refusing to allow needle exchanges in order to combat HIV. People are going to inject heroin. Using dirty needles spreads HIV.
Therefore, of the two choices: allow needle exchanges to prevent HIV or moan about HIV, which do you think would be most effective?
Currently ( with fly tipping ) we're stuck with option B.
And in the real world, the solution is to make the legal solution preferable to the illegal one.
As it's virtually impossible to track down fly tippers to give them massive fines, doing it illegally doesn't have a deterrence.
Therefore the only reasonable solution is for councils to stop acting like it is their job to make their residents lives harder.
If all your doing is providing a website ( eg: a high volume e-commerce site with your own servers ), the added expense of maintaining IPV6 isn't worth it.
There is nobody that won't be able to access it on IPv4, so why bother?
If you're providing VOIP or similar, IPV6 support may make sense of course.
It's worse than that.
There is literally no economic reason for a company to make its servers support IPV6 alongside IPV4.
Every consumer must be able to access IPV4 services, so you can't switch off your IPv4 support.
There's no first mover advantage, so why go to the cost?
Those identical looking sites are because the websites are based on the same few Bootstrap themes.
"You can tell all of that just from a date of birth?!"
Through the star-sign, obviously.
Why do Italian men have moustaches?
Because they want to look like their mum.
Generally it's the plugins that are written by morons and assume that letting the user specify the source to read from and the destination to write to isn't going to result into people writing arbitrary code into imagethumbnailcache/gimme-remote-access.php
Does anybody use phar://?
It should be disabled by default.
My guess is the "correct" answer would be have a coffee / snack and the answer will come to you.
Which, while often true, is a shit interview question.
I've been in a passenger with somebody like that, although the driver was only about 30.
After nearly witnessing him ploughing straight through an old woman on a zebra crossing at 40mph, I said "never again".
We'll lose access to the ISO ? Our companies will be barred from USB standards committees?
My downvote was for the unnecessary Brexit related trolling, sarcasm or otherwise.
The fuse is to stop you pulling all 32 amps of a normal ring main down a wire rated for 5amps.
The fusebox won't protect you in that situation.
I'm overly happy with my USB C (with PD) phone. Plug it in first time, charges at ludicrous speed.
Micro USB needs to die a death.
In this context it was on topic. From that individual post it's not possible to determine which way I even voted - just that I'm sick of the constant trolling.
The Trump connection is that obsessives can't stop themselves from forcing Trump into every article.
A similar affliction affects people who are obsessed with the fact that the United Kingdom is leaving the European union and can't stop telling people why they think it's a bad idea on articles which have no other connection.
The next time my neighbours do that, I'm complaining to the council.
If I had wasps in my attic, I'd burn the house down and start again.
The best thing I've read on El Reg for a long time.
My favourite bit: "Rather, it’s what happens when you look at a picture of a Rick Dickinson case design and trace round it with crayons."
The way the WhatApp protocol works for group chats is that the sending client encrypts the message being sent individually for each member of the group, marks that message as part of a group chat and sends every copy of the message to whatsapp for dissemination,
So group chat messages are actually private messages being "disguised" as a group message.
Obviously you'd have to upgrade the routers and servers to IPv6, but the main thing is that you wouldn't have to reconfigure them.
becomes interpreted as:
Network settings on the server remain the same:
Is interpreted as 0.0.0.0.220.127.116.11/24
Companies would have sold IPv6/4 proxies for servers which couldn't be upgraded, which could have kept track of the v6 address of the source and used a fake address when talking to the server.
We'd have been on v6 a decade ago under this cunning plan.
The solution was to take IPV4 and make the packet size and address field larger, make IPV4 address part of the V6 address space ( ie: 0.0.0.0.18.104.22.168 == 22.214.171.124 ), name it IPV6 and go to the pub.
Alternatively, adding 127.0.0.2 to the lo device and listening only on that.
So if I have a service listening that Halifax doesn't like, then what? They refuse my online banking because some software happens to be listening on a non-privileged port?
Or do they only scan <=1024? In which case, it's my business if I'm running 'finger' or something equally odd.
I wonder if you could get around this by making a GET / request to Halifax with the header:
X-Info: If you respond to this request then you agree to be port scanned.
That's more than Halifax are doing if you have to be port scanned to read about the fact you're agreeing to be port scanned.
On what grounds did the police force them to leave?
Fine, but can we class Bake Off as educational ( also the BBC's Great British Big Brother Bake Off )
Back to twitter with you.
Never anthropomorphise commentards.
Newer versions of Android Studio allow you to automatically upgrade your Java code to Kotlin, so it's reasonably likely old apps have switched to Kotlin automatically.
From a non-Java dev fiddling around with Android apps, Kotlin looks like an improvement.
So does this mean I can get my GP to prescribe Wetherspoons vouchers?
You think that 14 units per week ( 7 pints ) is borderline alcoholism?
7 pints is a livener.
I find that drinking over 40 units one day makes it much harder to drink very much at all the next day.
