Good printer and works just fine with third party cartridges.
US cities react in fury to FCC's $2bn break for 5G telcos: We'll be picking up the tab, say officials
Yet another reason
not to move to the US.
The UK isn't perfect but this is typical with regulation.
There are even state unions for all kinds of things such as 'nail technicians' which are basically run by gangsters who get away with massive membership fees.
Re: Porbably not just down due to the FBI
That makes sense.
It is aimed at a less technical audience but a very good review:
I used to be ambivalent about leaving the EU
But this petty dictatorship over domains shows the EU at it's worst.
Re: Compliant but non-functional?
I have had that a few time so stick with Prosafe unless there is a reason to use something else.
Re: Been running PoE Pis for years...
Probably direct power e.g. no device detection etc. but if it works for you then fine.
Device detection is optional on PoE btw.
"Where does luck come into it? Given the historical problems with power on Pis I'd have expected anything in that area to be fully tested with all possible build configurations."
Unfortunately switches that offer the same standards often vary on load.
Personally I don't trust TPLink for PoE, one minor surge near the threshold and I have to power cycle the one I have.
Re: Hats off to 'em...
Especially when we commentards are immature!
Re: If only the the folk at Nvidia were as honest to own up to their mistakes.
"If only the folk at HP/Nvidia were as honest as Eben Upton, to own up to their poor product testing, that has left so many Geforce based laptops dead from poor Geforce GPUs/poorthermal design and the use of lead free solder."
You literally have no idea about modern soldering.
To get BGA connections at the required density requires the solder has extremely precise characteristics and unfortunately the effects resulted in joint fractures after a combination of time, changes in the solder and temperature cycles which arose from the varying workload.
Yes, I worked at Nvidia (a non graphics division) and Jensen was genuinely upset about letting the customers and users down. I even met him once, a nice guy.
There is an EM drive in orbit
Remember that earlier this year a pair of satellites were launched, one with a conventional motor and one with an EM drive.
Let's see how it works in practice.
COCOM strikes again
Remember the Reagan era?
COCOM was supposed to be about security but it was about denying people important components.
Is anyone surprised when it turned out to include basic logic devices? I ended buying Japanese parts and US equipment manufacturers of many kinds had trouble exporting their products.
For sale to the highest bribe
Someone makes a decision despite not knowing anything about how it is to be done or if it can be done.
The important thing is to make a decision when you said you were going to make a decision.
I have known at least one system for HMP establishments which could never work - I know because I had to redesign it for one site.
Service as normal
As long as you get away with thing it is OK.
Like the lack of prosecutions from Hillsborough.
Re: installing vs code on Linux
I wasn't expecting that
Re: The elephant in the room!
"it lacks the meta to understand it does not understand".
Best description I have seen about autonomous vehicles.
Re: what’s with Adam Sandler?
Try The Longest Yard without prejudging it.
Yes, a remake but a very good one.
Lower phone sales
Less land fill and less money thrown away.
I work with industrial Android device testing BTW.
is to live off the investors money?
Let the fines begin!
Up to four percent of turnover.
Word process tax
To subsidise typewriters!
I learned a few weeks ago form someone involved in aircraft satellite comms that now in China the comms needs to be routed via their ground stations while in Chinese airspace.
Technology isn't magic
This message still gets ignored.
We produce an Android based product at work and production apps must be signed with the production key.
Hate to tell you
but the microwave antennae in an aircraft cannot be aimed into the cabin areas, it would be a liability.
I have seen one as well.
Who needs Zorro?
We have El Reg!
are becoming a dumber idea all the time.
Re: Not in IT...
HR means humans as resources.
Think of The Matrix, organic batteries.
IBM Watson dishes out 'dodgy cancer advice', Google Translate isn't better than humans yet, and other AI tidbits
meet natural stupidity.
Training the AI to spot paedophile priests?
Re: Didn't the IBM R&D division...
I imagine crystal scanners are difficult and crystals that get handled would become very difficult to read even then.
I advise people not to touch HP printers
For two reasons:
1. Stupidly expensive ink.
2. We have some expensive HP printer/scanners at work and when monitoring NTP network traffic three devices were transmitting leap second packets.
Yes, it was the three printers.
With what resources?
Their computer systems are antiquated, give them the tools to do the job.
I like it!
is what take El Reg from extremely good to great.
IBM hasn't been IBM for a very long time
I visited the San Jose site a couple of times in 1999 and that was the IBM I know.
This is some corporate parasites.
Re: something missed...
The surprising thing is that Gorusch is that he was appointed during Trump's reign.
Fully committed to the law and ignores the politics.
Ghurknas, Afghan interpreters were betrayed as well
By some unspeakable pieces of shit like this.
The US is the biggest hypocrite on this subject.
They steal any technology they can get away with, hide subsidies for favoured industries/companies and, just like now,
During the Reagan era there was COCOM, a coordinating committee on technology export with the idea of making it difficult for foreign manufacturers to get certain parts thus protecting US manufacturers of high tech products.
Except, as usual, someone got clever. I designed a product using 4000 series CMOS and there was a standard shift register and suddenly I couldn't buy the RCA part without filling in piles of forms. Solution - buy the same Toshiba part.
This also meant a number of US equipment manufacturers had problems exporting because straightforward products used COCOM controlled parts.
Sorry, but I've been the for interview and frankly the way they behave is disgusting.
HR are like scared rabbit's the electric wheelchairs they are required to have were tucked in a corner with flat tyres. It went downhill from there.
makes more sense
Blood spilled from another US high school shooting has yet to dry – and video games are already being blamed
Re: So WTF is wrong with the US school system?
Bullying and abuse by staff is accepted.
At Columbine the sports 'jocks' even got away with rape because the staff persuaded the police to ignore them.
In this case the kid wasn't good at sports so the sports staff bullied and abused him giving the green light for other pupils to do the same.
It has been noted that he didn't shoot at pupils he liked.
No one is asking why he did it
There is a bullying culture there amongst the staff and particularly the sports staff.
Exactly the same happened at Columbine including persuading the local police not to investigate two rapes carried out by their favourites sports pupils.
Fix the culture or face the penalties.
The US empire is slowly crumbling
Or maybe not slowly.
Did the monkey ask a lawyer to do this?
PETA - patronising animals.
Re: In loving memory
A true El Reg comment
Cloud-surfing orgs under attack, Microsoft antivirus for Chrome, Windows 10 S bypass, non-RSA gigs, and more
I have added the Chrome extension.
Keep fixing it
Until you break it.
The opposite of KISS.
