Re: God that’s ugly!
Yeah, hard to beat the beautiful LG G black monolith or even the original Moto 360.
No love for Netgear WNDR4500v3
openWRT stops at the 4300 and dd-WRT stops at 4500v2 :( I was running gargoyle on the netgear 3700 and it really helped with buffer bloat on TWC. Should've checked the compatibility lists before purchasing it's replacement.
No problems but ...
I didn't experience any problems, knock on wood, but the new, huge (and unresizable) Favorites panel in Edge so annoyed me that I switched to Opera. Couldn't be happier (even though Favorites are even more cumbersome). Funny thing is that I had finally started using Edge for everything, instead of IE11.
Went ok but ...
Went ok for me - no show stopping bugs, at least - but I found the changes they made to Edge so annoying that I decided to try Opera. I couldn't be happier with it.
Re: It's 250 tracks, not songs
I used this to my advantage to upload a lot of my classical stuff where a whole work might be a single 100 Mb track, operas might have each act as one track, etc. I'm pretty sure this isn't quite what Amazon had in mind.
"half pud, half pizza"
Great title for one of those movies involving pizza delivery.
Re: Love the Yellow!
Love the Yellow!
Any word on pricing? A 'vacation' phone is all I need, it could well replace the Nokia 520 I'm using now.
All well and good but...
How about doing something to engender actual, meaningful competition in the broadband market. We're still hostage to monopolies (duopolies if we're lucky). Having multiple ISPs competing for our money might just solve the neutrality problem by itself.
While the software is free ...
You have to create an Acronis account to use it - to receive updates and such, you know.
Still, decided to try it out and it warned me of 3 suspicious processes right off the bat - Intel Security Assistant, some Samsung printer thingie and cmd.exe.
Umm ... guilty?
I watched Maleficent three times.
Re: most people work at far below their capacity
Must be nice to work in a place like that. While every place has its share of shirkers and slackers, the hotels I've worked all seem to have a policy of 'if it takes 4 people to do the work, only hire three' and, between call-outs (pretty common with the youngsters) and/or high turnover (due to the high workload), you frequently have to make do with 2.
I'd prefer ...
they spend that money licensing more and/or better content.
Good thing I bought a spare Lumia 520 in case my current one goes titsup.
That's funny ...
I recently discovered I could hide that search box on the taskbar, so I did. It seemed redundant since there's a search box at the bottom of the start menu just above the start button.
Photo Viewer still works!
I guess there are advantages ...
to not having a telly.
Re: Hilton, too?
Yes, but I meant with this new thing.
Just a matter of time.
As he'll be staying at Club Fed, any 'chokey' will likely be voluntary.
Re: YouTube for Music
"Is it just me being old, that I feel that streaming video just for the audio is a waste of perfectly good bandwidth?"
YouTube is a god-send for classical music lovers and well worth the waste of a little bandwidth. From live performance to recorded music from both the labels themselves and user-uploaded, we're given the opportunity to hear things we'd likely never otherwise have. Our favorite chestnuts by household names to the once-famous who've fallen out of favor to composers I've never heard of, it's truly an embarrassment of riches, like dying and going to heaven.
More rings around Uranus?
Well, someone had to say it.
Hmm, no email from them
Pie is good, too.
One good thing
At least they're offering refunds to people who bought the darn things. Most companies would just say "screw 'em".
OMG, I love my N900!!!
As a little boombox it has a couple of advantages over my HTC One, mainly not have to press the power switch to awaken the screen. More storage, too.
Ugh! Does it come in black?
I like my My Book, it's been very reliable. The only problem I have is that occasionally Windows loses file access (in Computer) and I have to reboot it using IE to access admin (in Storage).
Round and square (kind of)?! One or the other, please.
Facebook status updates got erased during input in the Edge
That's not a bug, it's a feature.
Rolled back to previous version
Been using Foxit for years but grew increasingly disenchanted with all the bloated on-line stuff they've added. Finally tracked down a 6.0 version that I'm pretty pleased with.
Credit where it's due
Kudos to the ones who resigned on Monday, raspberries to the ones who said they'd stay on but then resigned today.
Curtains, for certain
Once the machines become self-aware, they'll make quick enough work of us.
Dropped by Marvel?
Could this be the real reason she was dropped by Marvel - constantly trying to hawk this shit to the poor crew when she wasn't on camera?
I thought they'd determined Tunguska was caused by a Tesla wireless power transmission experiment that went horribly awry.
The worst example I can think of is a color Epson all-in-one. It would not print a black-only page if one of the color ink tanks was out, even though the black tank was full.
Don't consider myself a super uber-nerd Star Wars fanboi but I found this article pretty interesting (if a bit arcane in places for us uninitiateds). Thanks.
No wonder Thomas is smiling.
Working up some steam.
Re: downvotes, really?
It was an honest question. I don't know, that's why I asked.
Is the universe expanding in all directions (blast radius) from a central point (the 'bang')? If so, where is the center of the universe?
Something fishy here
trumpscratch.com landed me at something called trumptytrump.com, a *very* different sort of site than the one described in the article.
scratchtrump.com took me to a page displaying the title "Kitten Feed" where I was Rick-rolled.
Re: before the internet
They beat me up and stole my lunch money at recess.
So,Tesla was right after all?
"Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality."
Why would we want sex toys smarter than our usual live fare?
My favourite Mr Boffo strip
Mr Boffo is sitting next to some guy in Hell who's musing aloud, "liar, liar, pants on fire ... now it all makes sense!"
smoke and mirrors
Just something to distract us from the fact that lawyers write the laws they then take advantage of to screw the rest of us and to give the illusion that they do police themselves because not even lawyers are above the law.
...or something far more sinister?
Aaaaaand... cue the over-sensationalized 60 minute History Channel "investigation" featuring that exact phrase "...or something far more sinister?", creepy lighting and music and snippets of historical recreations in which badly-costumed actors run across a field to, in this case, carry hods of bricks up spindly wooden scaffolding to build a tower.
...should probably get checked out.
After having fashioned an appropriate costume to preserve their anonymity, of course.
I love my LG G Watch
I only use it *as* a watch, though (and only at night, as you can't read it in daylight). It looks great - black and mysterious, like the monolith from 2001 - and the ability to change the face is the main reason I bought it. It's also much easier to use it as a timer than fiddling with the buttons on a digital watch.
He could easily an off-the-shelf Kaweco Sport (~$25) un-capped or, if he wants something more luxurious, a diminutive Pelikan M320 in marbled orange (to match his complexion).
In the movies, this never ends well
