Surge in home working highlights Microsoft licensing issue: If you are not on subscription, working remotely is a premium feature


Yes same here

Anyway with people being forced to stay home and work if possible it would almost be price gouging by Mi$$yshaft It's not like its our idea to stay home and work. Now the schools are closed so now thats going to make more people expected to work from home Mi$$yshaft are just going to have to wear it.

Microsoft deletes deleterious file deletion bug from Windows 10 October 2018 Update


This isn't the first time they have screwed with the /docs etc etc . A couple of updates ago I had a spate of calls from people who had lost their whole home directories and I lost mine too. It was easily found microosoft had just decided to rename all the bloody computers to \desktop\abcd1213 but it was the time taken to fix microsofts screwups. That they don't pay you for. And this time they the Docs/pictures are gone for good. Not good for some of my elderly customers who lost some pictures and Docs that are irreplaceable. And when you say Backup they think you mean reverse the bloody Car. Microsoft have got to watch what they are doing. Because a simple date error causes so much pain and distress.

Now Microsoft ports Windows 10, Linux to homegrown CPU design

Re: Windows Insiders

Ballmer says 500 MILLION 'users' to 'have' Windows 8 in 2013

Thumb Down

Win 8 more like Pig ver 3

Having tried this crap win 8, 32 and 64 bit versions, the 32 bit blue screened instantly, and the 64 bit ver hangs whilst it does something or other but cpu usage peaks at 99% on both cores and temps are close to burning hot. This on a machine that happily runs win 7 both 64 and 32 bit. So yep it's time for a dogs vomit and Ballmer and co obliged.

It's the ability to rebild

That sets us 'oldies' apart from the disposal generation All my 10 year old tv's have a computer (P4) hooked up to them all networked with terabyte drives all over works great. And I cant afford to buy new stuff. But i did put it out that I was interested in any broken Laptops from friends and out of all I have collected, I now have 3 working ones. so there are ways around getting newer tech. and if you need to find out how to take it to bits and you are fine with handling fragile and breakable equiptment then it's fun, and you also learn something.

Thumb Up

win 7

Well I had an old Dell 3 gig Hyper threading cpu (socket 478) with a gig of ddr 400 ram and a ATI 9800 AIW pro 128 meg video card give me a windows 7 rating of 3.2, and ran smoother than XP which just seemed to hesitate and it's I now have a dual core cpu Laptop running 7 and it's way smoother than XP The best thing they built into Win 7 was the ability to handle multi core chips. ANd I to have a shed full of 'old' computers mainly P4's and Athalon 's and X2's so may have to buy a coupla dozen beers, and have a sort out and see what sort of a frankenstien I can build.

Lawyers fear Assange faces death penalty in US



There you go the US we'll get him sooner or later

Federal Criminal Lawyer, Douglas C. McNabb, points out that a U.S. extradition law between Sweden and the U.S., pursuant to the article 6 of the supplement to the extradition treaty between the U.S. and Sweden, can assure Assange's extradition to the U.S.

Sweden can transfer Assange to the U.S. to stand trail for any U.S. federal criminal charges before he faces charges for sexual offences in Sweden. If convicted, Assange could also serve his full sentence in the US, before ever facing the alleged charges in Sweden. This law does not exist in the UK.



Which basically means if the swedes get him to Sweden then he will be handed over to the Yanks even before they interrogate him on these 'charges'

Pirate Bay mouthpiece disses Assange's legal wrangles



Did Not the Sweses say that they would defer their case to the Americans. Therefore If I was him I would also fight any attempt to get him to a country that has said it will give him up to the Yanks.

@joe the annoying

Who has 8 to 9 hours to try to setup a operating system that hides everything ?? I installed Ubuntu 10.04 spent 2 days trying to change the screen resolutioon from the fucking useless 1024x768 to something that would render properly on my widescreen laptop, like 1200x800 but it was so well hidden that out came a Win 7 disk and off Ubuntu went to the great blackhole in the sky, and within 1.5 hours I had a fully working easily configurable OS and none of the Bullshit that Ubuntu/Linux puts you thru..

I also have better things to do with my time than to fight a fucking OS for hours to get it going.. So Ubuntu getrs a HUGE fail from me until they make it easier to configure and that will never happen cos the linux fanbois have no life so will happily waste all day to get an os working , me i'll take my missus to the beach

Now I await the Flaming i'll read it when i get back from the beach
