HUH? I'm looking forward to you trying to use anything wireless once every single device under the sun starts using it... There's only so much bandwidth and transmitting 2 1080p video signals on top of your wireless network, bluetooth keyboard and mouse, dec phone, wireless door bell and garage door opener, tv sender all withing 20' of two or three neighbours who are trying to do the same thing... LOL
Of course the manufacturers could all get together and use a single wireless comms system like 802.11x or bluetooth... LOL
"The pair were drunk - Hanson on Passion Pop, Johnson on IMPORTED beer."
So it's all the fault of foreigners! What Aus needs is a more right wing government to protect its population from the effects of degenerate imported beer.
Paris, because she'd never get drunk and do a nudie photo session with anyone
To start off... anti trust types laws only come into effect if you control a market in the way MS do. So you won't see mac and ubuntu hit by rulings like this unless they get to control 90% + of the market!
You can't control a market by forcing less than 10% of users to do something, stop being so stupid!
Second: Ubuntu doesn't just bundle Firefox, you have a choice of lots of browsers through the package manager, or you can just install kubuntu (also a canonical product) which uses Konquerer as the default browser.
You can also completely remove whatever browser you don't like, show me the option in XP or Vista to do that. OK the option may be there but it doesn't do anything.
As for that "Ford windscreen" comment, LOL, a better analogy would be that if you buy a Ford it will only work properly on Ford roads, while cars from all other makes work on normal roads.
Halo Bill? because it will probably slip and strangle him!
to get a high speed SD card and move /home to it. Before I did that I was getting lots of application hangs while stuff was written to the ssd. Now apps open and close MUCH faster and nothing hangs any more. Firefox was pretty much unusable, now it's just a bit sluggish!
cos then my phone company won't be able to foist any more of their crap hand sets on me. After 20-30 years you'd have thought that mobiles would just work... In fact the ones I had 15 years ago did. My new nokia and my GF's new nokia don't.
DEATH TO NOKIA for this infernal, confusing, unreliable, unusable piece of crap my carrier "upgraded" me to.
Still it's got a nice metal case so I guess I can break it in half and use a piece of string to make a much more reliable phone
The problem isn't so much that nokia's rivals are cheaper... more that nokia's phones and software are rubbish.
I've known lots of people who used to swear by nokias, now they just swear at them.
I certainly spent a whole day swearing at the new e51 I got from work. Not only wouldn't it import my addressbook from my old K750 but the menus are fiddly and not intuitive, it takes ages to connect a call, it often doesn't ring when people call me and it needs recharging every night!!!
Way to flush your business down the toilet nokia.
I'll certainly never have another nokia if I have any choice about it!
"But after it installed SP3, no other Microsoft updates would install. We couldnt even get IE 7 to install. Every automatic update and install from network admin download versions failed."
That's because the update to windows update isn't included in the SP3 update. You have to update the updater before installing that update :)
I understand this is what caused it:
Er, just be clear on what "local bank" you work for, I might need to close my account.
of course "format c:" wouldn't work, you have to RE-PARTITION the drive silly, you did say you work in IT didn't you?
and the reason Red Hat 6 wouldn't run is that it's 8 years old... Since Linux has all the drivers built in old versions don't like new hardware, get over it. You should have just gone to one of the big distribution's web sites and download the latest copy because it's free anyway.
