Your RSS is grass: Mozilla euthanizes feed reader, Atom code in Firefox browser, claims it's old and unloved
This isn't the 0.01% that I wanted to be part of.
Re: Goodnight, Firefox
Waterfox is a very high-quality fork, which is preserving the core features which brought so many to Firefox in the first place.
Because the comments on a toilet cubicle wall would be better than that article, too. It's strange, since the first few weeks with the new columnist were brilliant.
Could you at least pretend to be writing for a UK website
And convert weights in lb to kg?
Re: Amounts so huge, that I simply can't process them.
There is a handy metric for handling such situations, called the "Megaton".
Re: If you are using Stargate references
And 9 for mobile devices.
Re: Today a domain...
Yesterday the world, more like.
You hadn't bothered to try calling it? I can't quite bring myself to believe you're not just telling porkies.
Re: "Can you turn it back on. Please?"
"the national broadband wholesale system at a large telecommunications provider"
Does that rhyme with TokenPeach by any chance?
"It's high time email clients, as a default, would raise a conspicuous flag on messages that don't originate in the domain they purport to come from."
SPF is way ahead of you, matey.
Re: Incognito Mode?
"For the sake of privacy, let's call her Lisa S... No that's too obvious, let's say L. Simpson."
Slow news day?
"Someone made a third-party skin for a website" is hardly journalism...
Re: Protected web pages
In Firefox-like browsers, there's a nice little setting in about:config — dom.event.contextmenu.enabled
Re: US legal position
MS (USA): Hand over the data.
MS (Ireland): No.
MS (USA): You're fired.
EU employment law: No.
MS (USA), to Mr. FBI: Suggestions?
Re: Legal Costs
Akash Nawbatt QC probably does cost that much, yeah.
People like Guiney misusing the issue of gender discrimination with false claims is why genuine cases get discredited.
IGBTs are used to power every modern electric train, from any number of different countries.
They're not a massive British secret innovation, and they have uses all over the world.
The Times article seems like a lot of hot air.
Re: POC announced
Re: Old skool....
They're affected too...
It's clearly a tool to encourage upgrading
Why else would they have waited before rolling it out to the newer iPhone 7?
Only if you're 2 metres from the exchange.
"Littman considers it curious...
... that anyone would want a screen name like @ProjectBlueBtn that had been previously associated with a government agency."
Because anything with a PageRank has advertising value, duh.
Disappointing lack of detail here — I still have zero clue exactly what SLP is or why stacking it is so damn great.
Re: "how hard can it be..."
Given that the login is already obfuscated by accepting random characters in place of the full string, I can fully imagine this being a separate locked-down system that just passes an authenticated pass/fail flag back to the 'main' server.
Agree that PR need stringing out for such a blatant attempt for a cover-up.
"I saw the problem myself"
"No you didn't"
As a Lumia 920 & 930 owner... wireless charging can jump off a bridge.
Re: The next stage
Re: That's it
Not going to work, since by default you still have \\hostname shares both on your machine, and available to you.
It's also mandatory equipment for the new generation of in-cab signalling in ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System). 20 years from now we'll be finishing ripping out all the old traffic lights (and all the thievable copper cabling) on the railways, because all the trains will just be talking to each other over GSM-R backhaul instead.
Re: Model M
Cherry switches may well be mechanical, but they're shitty plastic bendy mechanical — not the glorious buckling spring.
"Fundamental questions remain about what a virtual currency actually is"
All currency is virtual.
Of course it can't happen overnight...
"night" of course being "when the sun is behind that big rock".
How do you become an expert in matress explosions?
What's a "Yahoo!"?
The banned May 2013 version, which was still working earlier this week, is now kaput.
Google probably wanted to revoke the banned version's key, thinking that now there will be less bad PR because of an adequate replacement — but silly Microsoft reused the key in the new version.
F1 teams can *afford* a lot more than they're allowed to spend by the racing rules.
"Don't be evil"
If they really subscribed to that sentiment, Google would create a Gmail app for WP8.
His plea bargains, based on that rap sheet
add up to a total maximum of 20 years.
Re: Perhaps it's just me
No, you'll just get Tom Cruise abseiling in through the air vent.
Surely this is as simple as not delivering these messages to any handsets
Just put a filter on the exchanges, job's a good'un. Owait, femtocells.
Lets apologise for
Windows ME, Vista, and 8.
Get over yourself, find a sense of humour, and realise that words on a screen really aren't worth all this fuss.
The more I think about it,
the more I believe it would be a good idea for Mozilla and Microsoft to team up and go to war against Apple and Google.
Still have IE and Firefox separate, but have Microsoft's financial muscle behind a friendly open-source organisation and switch IE's rendering engine to Gecko from Trident. It'll take that sort of opposition to prevent Webkit from Borg-ing the entire web.
Re: This tiny vessel
You, sir, get an upvote.
Vertical integration, Lemon!
The American corporate dream.
"If this is avoided"
So they've done the easy bit of identifying the suboptimal stage of the process, but don't have an alternate suggestion?
I can't help but think
they'd never get away with that sort of thing on this side of the pond.
Windows Mobile, eh?
Researcher couldn't afford a Lumia?
"Bring that all-Earth title to the red, white, and blue. —
— Oh, wait – those are the colors of Russia's flag, as well."
One could argue that the Lunokhod 2 record flies under a Red & Gold flag, comrade!
