Re: Wasn't Snapchat the respectable company which...
...........we assumed was principally used by teenaged exhibitionists.
Did that really pass as respectable?
This will be seriously messing stuff up internationally. CLS Bank will be dusting off their emergency procedures.
All very well
But to remote in to the office I have to type the same password three times in a row at differnet screens. The hell I'm going to type half a novel
The funny thing is that when I first used windows 8 I immediately thought that the metro/start/tiles thing could really work well as a "smart" start menu with live tiles and so on. I was thinking that if you could lock it to a secondary touchscreen display it would be an excellent place for notifications and tickers and the start menu......................
So racist that 10 years ago you'd have lazy newspaper articles sayign that America would never elect a black president. Then they did, and more critically his race wasn't an issue at the election, it was about all the usual stuff.

....and the governement is so good at these secret conspiracies that no-one finds out about. It's so easy as no secrets ever leak do they. Particularly when it will need probably thousands of people that know about it.
Anyway weaponised smallpox? Yeah lets just say it won't be on anywhere you're planning to send in the troops to will it. Biological weapons are't exactly predictable are they?
Hate the US all you like but try and use your brain now and again. That tinfoil isn't helping.

Do you just make this up or to have a set of bookmarks on Area51, Bilderberg, Protocols, Illuminati etc
Re: And who will not be happy

He never said he was going to tar them let alone reach for the feathers..............
I'm actually less worried by the accuracy of the predictions of the problem than by the disasterous nature of some of the solutions. There may well be some bad climate science out there, but for sure there is a hell of a lot of bad climate policy.
Kim Jong-un will have to announce that a 10th degree belf has been invented especially for him
grams or Instagrams?
I think the only explanation for rejecting the offer is that some of the current investors' cash has gone up his nose......
It's now a bad one but not as funny as the t-shirt which we something like
"TSA: If we don't get off, you don't get on."
Howabout they give us a quick rundown of the people they actually don't want to kill for one reason or another. Should make it within the tweet size limit.
Young ladies should be warnedd that such activity may bring them into contact with highly unsavoury characters. Such as candidates for public office...............
Re: Great Leap Forward - the videogame
I assume your next article would be "Situations when a BA will be useful" but if you're paid by the word it it's going to be worth bothering with.
Lets be honest
Technet subscriptions were used by people with a lot of machines around the home who previously might have used pirated software but felt they didn't want the hassle. I thought that MS were probably happier this way but I guess they were goign to shut this down sooner or later.
if the fire alarm goes off. (Assuming the assembly area is outside the enbassy grounds).
Anyway I'm they're having a whale of a time with him, though best lock the bedroom door before going to sleep, ladies.
Re: What's the matter with you lot?
I you were already banged up for hacking would really you be willing to plead guilty to a child porn offence to reduce the sentance if you weren't actually guilty of it?
Not Just MicroWeed?
How many of these would I need to convince myslef that someone designed the Notes client GUI on purpose?
Re: I must live a sheltered life
I defnitely have a problem if it turns my espresso into a macchiato..................
I'm not a frequent visitor to the site but a few several years ago I typed in the url direct.gov.uk abd got a front page article entitled:
"Unemployed? Claim benefit online at a time to suit you."
I have been unemplyed though I have never claimed benefit but it I did want to I can be sure thant most of the time would have suited me ok!
Re access. It's not a great database for proper multi-user database applications, but it's a bloody wonderful RAD solution for the horrors you find lurking in Excel.
RE 1-2-3 I wote macros for it and remember they had a few decent features in later versions but nope they were beatend fair and square. Funnily enough the other obvious place a MS product whacks the compeditor is Outlook vs Notes. (The Notes client being clearly designed to make the user pay for sins in a prior life).
Re: They also follow proper industry standards...
The stuff does work together. However the IKEA kit using plastic Lugs on the rails doesn't fit it well so avoid.
Re: Headphone recommendations
I just got these http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-HD-380-Pro-Collapsible/dp/B001UE6I0G/ Very clean sound, removable (replacable) cable, bomb-proof carry case, very good.
Re: Not really
And I'm sorry but I have to downvote you for being rude about Access.
Just remember the real world alternative to Access is not a nice strategic Oracle/Sybase/SQL Server db. It's a database hidden in a huge excel file with pivots on pivots.
I was thinking of a hat-stand icon for completely off-topic posts.
Beard'n'Sandles - instead of penguin for *nix types.
The silly "Prince" squiggle - for TIFKAM
Whale/Joss Stick - for when the Cetean Ambient is cranked up
An Armchair - for any long posts on military matters
I did log into facebook recently to see if there were any more privacy buttons I needed to turn on. Merciffy there noting there - no photos comments etc. If I was sure the would delete everything I'd close it.

It could be worse, they could buy a Mac.........
Missing the obvious candidate
Where's Juilan Assange??? I know he hasn't actually had a role yet but he's clearly born for it so it's just a matter of time. It's not hard to picture him with the white cat..........
Re: yeah, whatever...teachers' best excuse yet
Is that how you get a decent singnal on an iPhone, then?
I hada TTyN II which was great, a touch HD which wasn't and currently a Flyer which they don't seem to want to support. I don't know what they're doing but I don't think I 'll be buying another.
I don't suppose the views of WoW players will affect the result much as they'd have to leave their bedrooms to vote......
Not first time we tried to "help"
IIrc after the war some refurbished Engima machines were distributed to Commonwealth countries and other allies for "secure" communications.....which we could then break into.
Re: There are always some bad eggs...
I have seen both excellent and appalling code produced by both permanent staff and contractors and likewise found EUC-developed tactical apps that were really well written and seen big strategic systems that were a disaster.
There are plenty bad coders out there. I reckon each one creates work for several competent developers.
Re: British judges as narrow minded and stupid as Ameican judges
Looks like your attitude to 13yo girls would fit in well in Rochdale
Flares and mullets haven't been approved in the iLook store
I wonder what the publisher of the Express has to say. He has a number of publications that might well have sustatial online readership............
I bet the lawyers will be ready
All they need if for someone to drive into one and they will be racing to sue Google Inc for billions.
Corporate roll-out schedules
Alas we're on IE8 here that came with our more to Win 7 from WinXP/IE6 hell this year.
Not sure that IE9 will happen any time soon as every browser change requires retesting of a vast number of internal web-based apps. Of couse there is no need for them to have been web-based but that is another story.
Having alternated between Notes and Outlook clients over the years I always assumed that there must be some hidden benefits as there certainly weren't any obvious ones. When I used it c2000-2 the user interface was a clearly worse than outlook...express. (I actualy used OE with Hotmail for my personal mail then as it was easier). I encountered notes again in 2005-7 and 2010-11 and I could detect barely any improvement.
There may be some great features for the BoFHs but there certainly weren't any for the users.
Scepticism is useful
Generally scientists are best off as sceptics, requireing proof on a theory before accepting it. "Belief" is something appropriate to Theology and such.
"Climate Change Denier" is a form of words cleantly meant to create some fuzzy equivalence between expressing doubts about global warming to claiming the Holocaust didn't happen. I find this a rather distatesful attempt at cheap politics.
Myself I find the general theory plasible, but the projections of it's impact to be politicised and unreliable and the policy prescriptions variously inconsistent, self-interested or plain daft.
It's a bit mysertious to me but if you wanted to pay for stuff online that might be illegal or you don't wnat to be found out then the untraceability is going to be handy. So presumably it's for porn, pills and the Paranoid.
He needs to show a bit of consistency
and demand that Equidor release all the diplomatic cables they have send on this matter.
Of course a lot of these PIA legacy IE6 apps were created because 10-12 years ago developers wanted some web dev on their CVs regardless of the fact that they were internal apps and a thick client might have been a better solution for the end user.
How do these people sleep at night?
My favourite quote from their species was "If you take a hypothical system and imagine a hypothical use-case......." I have no idea what came next as I must have fallen into a trance.
It's fiction about science mostly which it the tread that links his writing.
Better than current deal
I hope 3 gives this a go. I spent a lot more than £3 a day on roaming on my last trip and that was only turning the data on fore a few mins now and then to check some stuff.
I'm normally up for a new release. Even Vista had UI improvements over XP which made it a wrench going back, though I only ever installed it on a laptop. Hoever I'm really unclear where they are going with the Metro UI in the desktop world.
Certainly I can't see it being rolled out in any large office environment, though I thing most larger corporates are currently going through the XP to Win 7 deployment so won't be looking to upgrade for another five years or so. By then they should have worked out where they are going with the classic desktop which I think will be aroud for a good while yet.
for myself I think it could work well as a mediacentre OS and I might try it out on my old dell netbook this weekend.
