Re: Virtual reality
And using those weird carts with monitors on top that roll around offices to enhance their presence in the office.
Re: Re: That's not a brontosaurus
Oh c'mon, we're not allowed to have a bit of fun with the headline? Here's how my brain worked on this one. I learned about the fact Sapho was doing its thing for Domino, which just isn't news. But the fact a company still thinks there's an opportunity to be had targeting Domino was news, so I found a fun way to present it.
That's not attitude. It's a gentle and amusing way of introducing the story.
Oh and I despise the Daily Mail.
Re: "We'll know more in March, when the PwC report into the incident emerges"
The sales team are in town and we went to ... erm ... dinner last night. That's a better excuse than 'alt.right trolls hacked my Twitter', I hope.
Accent? It's the rest of you doing it wrong ...
Re: Very interesting - slight "but"
IMHO telling the story with images and sound makes it more interesting. Reg writers get the opportunity to see some cool stuff. I think (hope?) it serves readers well to share those experiences in the most visceral way we can muster.
Second, we like to play with new storytelling ideas and techniques. And it's probably important we do so to keep the team and site evolving.
Re: Re: Interesting - Thank You
Noted. I use a thing called "Sounslides" to do these. It can do captions. Now I need to learn how to make them work ...
Re: Please stop this ill informed and click bait 'journalism'
A few of things to address here.
The Reg is not targeting Xen. But when we see nasty bugs in anything we think readers are likely to use, we report them. When a stream of nasty bugs appears in the same code, we report the ongoing issues. Look at our reporting on Google Cloud outages.
I missed the comments about the media because I based this report on George Dunlap's blog post and posts to xen-devel in recent days. I glanced at the Jan 5 thread that contains the comments about media, but realised this month's thread was more recent and therefore directed readers to it.
If Xen thinks we're going overboard with our coverage of its bugs, the folks there know where to find us. Indeed, George Dunlap has posted here a few times on this story alone!
On the charge of clickbait, I've never seen a project, commercial or open source, make a suggestion like this. That makes it newsworthy. And believe me there's about a zillion ways to headline this story to make it really scary and negative. I can imagine others going with "Amazon's core open source cloud engine wants to hide security problems". THAT's clickbait. IMHO this story quite soberly reports the blog post, quotes liberally from it, shows readers where they can learn more, tries to tell a story about the debate
I mean I made a tyop. They order was announced in Oct 2016. I typed 2017. Because stooipd
Re: surprised ...
Nah. Figured y'all knew about BOFH already. And besides, who says it is fiction?
Re: Cheeky Amanda Palmer reference?
I think you'll find Ms Palmer was not the first to refer to the Map of Tasmania in this way. Which is a way of saying probably
Just reporting what nbn™ told me yesterday, when they updated the address finder.
I take the point that there are some premises where satellite or fixed wireless connections have been promised, but plans are not yet firm and will tweak the story to reflect that.
Thanks Dwarf. You can stay and comment again :-)
LInkedIn says Russia's letter came to its US office, but LinkedIn Ireland has responsibility for Europe. Pretty thin, yeah
Re: What I find aggravating...
A tree? What connection medium do you have? there we were thinking that FTTP and FTTN are underground. Which leaves one of the few HFC connections as possibility. What am I missing?
Re: Pressurisation Cycles
Dunno. But the landing gear surely accrue cycles too?
Re: Interesting article spoiled by SJW journo
I save my SJW activities, such as they are, for my private time. the Brexit bit was meant to be a bit of a wry gag.
Re: Feeling here
It's always the accountants who feel nervous after a merger ...
Re: Re: What's "Cricket?"
I attended the Australia vs Scotland match at Worcester in the 1999 World Cup. Australia won without getting into third gear, but Scotland comprehensively out-sang the Australians in the crowd. Scorecard: http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/65196.html
Re: Gigabit not needed, what a load of crap!
nbn says Gigabit is not needed in homes. Yes, plenty of businesses need it. And they can go buy it today from carriers other than NBN. Why don't they? Price, probably. But at least nbn will eventually have a universal service.
Re: Why Nobody buys 100mbs
Spot on Mr B - the many Australians without broadband are waiting and waiting. If you have rubbish broadband, I imagine the argument about which carriage medium is largely moot. I've written before that speed of rollout is what really matters. Once the nation has a better baseline, then we can see what services make a difference and if they need gigabit services.
Re: Re: State of the copper?
FWIW I have had three telstra copper problems in the last three years in my 100-year old inner city suburb with postmaster general signs on some pits. On each occasion my ADSL drops from its usual 15Mbps to about 4. My ISP makes me test my router with a different filter and then asks if I have a spare router (as if) and then warns that if I've called it in wrong I'll have to pay $400 to telstra for their call-out fee.
In each case it takes telstra about an hour to locate and repair the fault. The copper on my street or into my home hasn't been touched. And I've never seen the copper dug up or out.
Re: What other phones are modular and would need Greybus?
The Moto Z has interchangeable hardware add-ons. Not quite the full modular experience. But at least some flexibility
Hello |FNAME|, let me assure you I am not a bot.
I wondered that myself. No word on that AFAIK
Re: I Know!
The NSA wants to know when you have three monitors. So the ABS has to hide the fact they want to know. Or something. Look - Someone rigged my election. Those people. YOU KNOW WHO. Lock them up. And also lock up people with three monitors.
Re: This comment echos the sentiment of a large majority of readers of this article.
The cauliflower was quite nice. IMHO it is better when cut, roasted until quite brown, the pureed with salt, butter and a splash of milk. Like mash, only nuttier and better
Re: Re: Donald Trump is a plonker
Hard not to pity US voters - a campaign in which Trump offers flimsy policy based on his alleged ability as a negotiator and Clinton offers policy that won't change much. And little prospect of politics getting classier or more substantive any time soon
Re: Is she says the Rooskies did it ...
Is any politician qualified to comment on it? Can any politician even spell HTML?
Re: S7 != Note 7
The author has been slapped. Ouch!
Stored value ≠ digital cash.
I sat next to a Mondex chap on a long flight once. I told him I was a tech journo. He was quite pleased. Over the next hour he tried to explain why Mondex mattered. I just didn't get it. The rest of the flight was frosty.
Re: "US$150m - a decent chunk of India's budget"
$US150m for a nation that is still trying to get clean water and electricity to several thousand villages is more than a rounding error.
Re: Thought for the day
I knew someone would go for the gussets.
Pretty sure metadata retention was a Brandis, not a Conroy. Although the ALP waved it through
No by-election needed for casual senate vacancies. The ALP picks a replacement, the GG signs off on it. Done deal. Not a single vote needs to be cast. Except by factional hacks deciding who gets the gig
AFAIK the idea is that by making things like creating temporary WLANs something more people can do, NetAdmins can get to know every packet by name and convince them to do amazing things that really matter.
HP split up? Really? When?
Nah ... just messing with you. Old habits die hard. Fixed that wee error.
Re: Got me
FWIW I joined when I got my first job in journalism 20-odd years ago. Sent in a cheque for a week's wages. Huge sum of money to me at the time.
And then I heard nothing. For 6 months. Until a new bill for another week's wages arrived.
I asked why I was being asked to pay again when I never heard back on my membership application. I was told told that there was no way to pay half a year's fees and that the membership card printing machine was broken and had been for six months.
I do hope the MEAA has improved since.
Re: "one of cricket's oddest rules"
Look I wrote the headline so of course I am going to defend it. But I don't think it is egregious clickbait. The announcement said if you've lost your phone, ask the crew to find it. I could have over-egged it way more than that!
Re: Re: Dear Japan
Speaking as a resident of the Commonwealth who came to the UK, nourished your hospitality and travel sectors lavishly, paid taxes for a bit, then buggered off to where the weather is better with lots of lovely pounds in hand, I can say the Commonwealth is 100% behind Britain. If it gives us some nice trading concessions to make up for the ones it can't get from Europe any more. Also, if you would revert to being rubbish at cricket that would make us better-disposed towards you.
Re: Re: From the usual (high) standard of stock photos used
Our production team picks most of the images. We have a licence to a stock graphics service, but try not to use their cheesiest stuff.
I was hoping someone would get that reference. Well played, Sir.
Re: More of this, please.
Noted on the "more please". Suspect I'll move on to other things rather than go deeper on this product.
Re: Stick + Battery Loader
Yup. Hence Campfire NAS
Microsoft will happily Azurify those for you too
Re: Re: Confidentiality
I gotta disagree. You wouldn't want world+dog seeing the fine print. NDAs are standard procedure. The selling on consignment thing is a whole other deal designed to cynically maximise profit. But legal, for now
I contest the light heated the moisture on the child skin, or perhaps subcutaneous moisture. Hence scald.
Yes: They've not broken ground yet, never mind plugged in a server
