A2 Hosting finds 'restore' the hardest word as Windows outage slips into May

Sir Adam-All

i've said it before .....

.......what do you expect for ~ £3.60 a month ?

If people insist on running their life blood and income source on something that costs so little, why expect so much when it goes wrong ?

i feel very sorry for everyone who's lost data, ive been there and its a total nightmare especially having to explain to customers its just "gone".

do yourself a favour and either pay for SLA backed managed hosting or run your own server and backup yourself - you only have yourself to blame then :)

Cheapskate Brits appear to love their Poundland MVNOs as UK's big four snubbed in survey again

1Gb Data a month - Really ?

Do people really "survive" with 1Gb of data a month ? seems a low figure these days with always on email, internet, streaming etc not to mention large app updates.

I personally am on Vodafone and fine the service excellent - no complaints here - never had a data issue and coverage has been more than acceptable whilst travelling even Europe-wide.

That said, I've never had to contact them so that may be the thorn in the side when things go TU !

Just my 99p worth

Easy-to-hack combat systems, years-old flaws and a massive bill – yup, that's America's F-35

My Dad

My dad's just had an ICD fitted

the docs programmed it using what looked to me like a bluetooth receiver plugged into a PC

The ICD communicates with a "box" plugged into the phone line at home so it can dial back to the hospital info about how he is.

It also has a radio transmitter so if i "goes off" when hes out and about, the hospital monitoring station are aware and will contact him to see if all is ok

Scottish Highlands get blanket 3G coverage

Ive got a Vod Sure Signal.

Its crap.

Takes about 2 days if powered cycled to sync up and be ready, and then whilst sat there my phone will switch between the sure signal and teh mobile network going from full signal to hardly any signal.


Bitcoin exchange shuts after heist

Sir Adam-All

Re: Bitcoin

but then surely theres an "audit trail" from the point you put your CC details in to buy the Bitcoins ?

Or am I missing the point ? (which is more than possible!)

Sounds a little gay to me.

BTO Modem

Mine ran warm and connx dropped out.

I mounted it on the wall using the 2 keyhole screw holes on the back. worked fine after that.

Kelly (the company not the guy) came round before crimbo and replaced it. I asked him why they were replacing it, and he told me its to make it work faster !!

Pre-paid Chinese users still anonymous despite new law

Sir Adam-All

Sigh ...

No, im not up to "no good".

As i've said, if your NOT up to no good, wheres the issue.

Sir Adam-All

why not ?

And why shouldn't people have to give their details to get a pre-paid phone ?

Surely the operators at least would want to know WHO is using THEIR network.

This whole debate about anonymity astounds me.

If you aint up to no good - whats the issue ?

Windows 7 takes PC upgrade for a cycle

Sir Adam-All

what a load of nonsense

its clear for anyone with a brain to see that Windows isn't going anywhere any time soon. I like Windows, its easy to manage (IMHO) (and I look after around 4000 users of all differing abilities). I like Linux too, but at the end of the day, I am a technical person. My dad has trouble finding the power button on his PC, never mind giving him an unfamiliar OS, with unfamiliar software to use. At the end of the day, its simple, Windows is familiar. Until people either take a leap and use something else, of Microsoft stop making Windows and associated software familiar, people will and will keep on using it.

BT fibre-to-the-premises trial takes 7 hours per install

To infinity and beyond ...

I have BT Infinity (FTTC), and i have to say its very very good.

I get around 37Mbit/s pretty much consistently.

I'd highly recommend it to anyone if its available in your area. Much better than standard ADSL and also doesn't come with VM's nasty STM.

Google gins search formula to favor its own services

Sir Adam-All

I don't get it...

Why shouldn't Google favour its own services ?

if you don't want to see it, don't use Google.

I don't see what the issue is. when you shop in Tesco, they don't show adverts for Asda do they.

CHOICE is the name of the game.

I love Google. They give me free email, free storage, free maps, free searches etc etc

Assange lawyers fume over leaked rape case docs

Sir Adam-All

everyone's an expert

Seems to me like it's fair game.

As far as I can see, wikileaks leaks shit to the world, and now that world has turned on it's head and Assange and his mega-corp-wanna-be is being served some of their own medicine.

I can hardly see a day when he is going to be sat in court facing charges of rape, more so of harming the public interest with the materials leaked to the masses.

Let's just sit back and see what money can buy, or should I say WHO money can buy.

no one is forcing you to, there no compelling reason. there are literally thousands of email providers, or as one of you said, run your oen if your porn filled, viagra advertising, daily horoscope emails are that precious and private to YOU.

Get on with life - people are dying in the world.

Me, I love Google. Its great. Its fast, and they give it me for free.

Paris, cos she knows a good thing when shes got it.
