Re: Here we go again...
And some one 'mis-places' all the data on two DVD's
To be promoted, way above their station.
Wow, what a lovely early Christmas present for Australians: A crypto-busting super-snoop law passes just in time
root certificate to Microsofts DNS servers?
I could not keep up
It was impossible to click the 'deny' button fast enough when it wanted to connect the rest of the world to my computer.
Re: It's 2018
Maybe not, but then in some roles 'using a computer' isn't that important and to some it's a pain in the arse.
A pain that could be eased by some consistency in the user interface by those Microsoft twats, but no the chief twatspanner always has to thrust his member into the works to bugger up what used to be simple.
Re: The right attitude
With one exception: my mother in law.
Why millions of Brits' mobile phones were knackered on Thursday: An expired Ericsson software certificate
I could not upload or view cat videos on Thursday, for a whole day...
Where do I file for compensation?
The most secure version of Windows...
Oh the shame
Of having to put that on your CV at some point in future.
I look forward to the day they are forced to change, but that seems par for the course for them.
Re: Take your browser and fuck off
"I didn't even mind Edge that much functionally but the constant popups of "why not try edge" when I clearly DO NOT WANT TO USE EDGE get on my tits.
This goes for all manufacturers. So fuck Chrome as well."
it looks like you are writing a letter? would you like me to:
1. Fuck it all up for you
2. Format your hard disk
3. Or just piss you off and lose all your work
Make three choices from the above list.
Why not go the whole hog
And turn it into 2000 ?
I did use Edge...
It seemed jammed full of largely inapropriate adverts.
I downloaded Firefox and that was the end of Edge.
Re: FUCK YOU MICROSOFT!!!!!!!
But thats one of their objectives, to junk perfectly good hardware.
Meanwhile spouting environmental bollox.
But why is it so many are 'deeply offended' about stuff all? Wouldn't offend me even if I lived next door (and no, I'm not a brown hatter).
'Facepalm indeed. Microsoft is looking really ridiculous'.
That's more like it.
Arrested for being drunk
So, just what is the point of 'self driving' cars if you can't get pissed and let it take you home?
Meanwhile in la la land
They will be claiming to be the most environmentally friendly computer company in...
Perhaps its the wrong sort of dust...
Re: Not paying the ICO is NOT the problem
I agree entirely
But it would involve doing something instead of running a one line queery & pressing fine, whoops I meant print.
Its coming to a point, where it would be easier to report on whats working as opposed to what isn't.
I can hear
The laywers word processors revving up from here in France
Sue the fuckking arse off the bastards and don't settle for what they offer at first, because it will be shyte all.
Fewer things better
They're good at nothing, apart from large invoices.
Thats cock all,
I suppose they think Uber is a small biz run from a backroom.
It's all about composition and lighting
I have some perfectly good images taken on my iPhone3.
Perhaps they want to fill the worlds data centres with high res cat pics and videos?
Microsoft reveals terrible trio of bugs that knocked out Azure, Office 362.5 multi-factor auth logins for 14 hours
Clearly not in its current manifestation.
But I suspect Fasthosts will still try and charge 3 quid for it.
Oh, I wish it could be Black Friday every day-aayyy, when the wallets start jingling but it's still a week till we're paiii-iid
Meanwhile in western France...
You'd think it would be Vendredi Noir, mais non c'est Black Friday
The shopping 'mall' at our Leclerc was almost deserted, no surging unwashed crowd having camped the previous night fighting over the remains of a dis-embowled television.
We did go for a Black Friday three course lunch with wine reduced from 12 euros to 12 euros and very nice it was too.
Before I read the article...
The first thing that entered my head was only Crapita is capable of such biblical incompetence?
Re: Bordeaux-no! Wine guzzling at UK.gov events rises 20%
'That is at a lower price point. I do wonder if the cost of French wines is largely down to prestige rather than taste.'
I think what we consider everyday wines: Sauvignon blanc, Merlot & Muscadet etc in France are almost tripled in price in the UK which makes the NW wine much more attractive. Supermarket wine being generally ready for drinking now or won't mature any more although some can be kept a couple of years. It's a bit of a long running joke that inferior wine gets exported but not so in recent years, about 25 which is recent as far as wine is concerned. A lot of French drink vin de table, grown locally, its ordinary stuff and tastes anything up to quite good depending what your expectations are for a euro a litre.
As for the better stuff, unless you have deep pockets the best way to buy is 'en primeur' from a producteur where you can taste then store it in your cellar/cave. Theres ample opportunity to sample your favourite chateaus look for 'Portes Ouvertes' and promos for Hangar 54 in Bordeaux for example. Whilst some watch the harvest & weather reports etc. A very small number of producteurs will try and sell a bit higher than the supermarkets but a gentle reminder generally gets the better rates and don't expect a discount on one bottle!
Not all expensive wine is good and not all cheap wine is inferior, because next to a lot of grand chateaux is a small producteur who probably worked for said chateau but now makes his own variant on similair terrior (land) but I suspect the UK govt like most things, buys from the most expensive merchant.
My 10 cts after 48 years of drinking the stuff, hic.
They should be watered according to their abilities?
In which case, they wouldn't get the steam off my pee.
I prefer to call them 'spare part fitters'.
If the first one doesn't work, they fit another...

Just shows what sort fo company they really are.
Any small biz behaving like that would get fucked over by the ICO.
Spend it on anything
So long as Capita are not involved
Time these halfwit leeches got the boot.

That's never been a priority for MS.
Re: Adobe Reader used to be quite good
But that was about twenty five years ago.
"Why do we need creepy adverts that keep targeting something you searched for years ago? "
You don't. MS will happily sling any old shit, so long as they get paid.
It's November 2018, and Microsoft's super-secure Edge browser can be pwned eight different ways by a web page
<cough> Were the patches tested or not? <\cough>
Mary Jo Foley says it's fine, so passed all testing and QA
And its not connected to the tinterwebs
That is all

Apple takes aim at foot - again...
Someone tell them a 256Gb SSD is about 50 quid and is really tiny these days
and 8Gb of ram not much more
As for the rest, I dont give a shit how thin or light it is, I just want something reliable that wont cook itself on its battery because the thing can't be removed if it overheats.
Because I really don't want to buy a chromebook
Downvote me to hell
But when have Apple ever been timely with these?
Re: So the 365 in Office 365 means...
365 fuckups a year?
Sorry friends, I'm afraid I just can't quite afford the Bitcoin to stop that vid from leaking everywhere
You are my vicrim
I fell about laughing with that one and according to the text I hit the screen so I'd really like to see the video...
When this shit slide impacts on bottom line, MS will realise the error of their ways.
But it may be too late then, my daughter works for a global company and uses Windows 7. There are no plan to change to 10 as its not suitable. The company has moved everything they can server wise to Linux. They are currently looking at alternatives to Outlook, Word & Excel and once thats decided they wil look at desktop versions of Linux.
Only if MS were to continue to support for 7 would they remain MS.
Windows 10 is broken
But MS won't fix or listen
Words fail me
If you downloaded crappy software from any other supplier, it would be gone and forgotten in minutes
