Good grief, why does anyone rent a router from their cable company anymore? Especially those who read and post on El Reg? Find your providers equipment list and go with something better than the crap they charge you for month after month. I've been doing this since my Verizon DSL days (had my own modem, too) and have never had a serious support problem with VZ or Cox. It helps if you are a higher level customer, in terms of speed or overall package, as Cox gives you a separate support line that bypasses the level 1 drone support. And being a bronze/silver/gold poster helps too! :)
Because we Yanks are not stupid enough to stand in a flooded room and reset the GFCI breaker, without fixing the problem and cleaning up the room first! It also localizes the outage and allows you to identify the problem.
That said, my apartment has one circuit for all the GFCI breakers (balcony, bathroom, 3 in kitchen) If it trips for a non GFCI reason, it usually means I plugged in something that takes too much power in the room I'm in at the time. It all works!
Windows showing the user name of the last person to log in? Have never seen it where I work! Every morning I have to enter user name and password on the computer that only I use! So do the lowliest staff and the Director. What nonsense is this? Leaving my computer Locked is the only time I have ever seen a username displayed.
Lots of partisan bluster here about Trump, his finances, his taxes, etc.
This is why there is no deal and tariffs:
"The diplomatic cable from Beijing arrived in Washington late on Friday night, with systematic edits to a nearly 150-page draft trade agreement that would blow up months of negotiations between the world’s two largest economies, according to three U.S. government sources and three private sector sources briefed on the talks.
The document was riddled with reversals by China that undermined core U.S. demands, the sources told Reuters.
In each of the seven chapters of the draft trade deal, China had deleted its commitments to change laws to resolve core complaints that caused the United States to launch a trade war: theft of U.S. intellectual property and trade secrets; forced technology transfers; competition policy; access to financial services; and currency manipulation."
A little actual information goes a long way...
A US Senator's salary is 174,000. Majority Leader and other posts make more. Nobody is getting rich off that. They are also allowed million(s) in some cases, for staff, office expenses and whatever else they can make look official. But skimming that money for personal use would be frowned upon. They are also limited to 15% of their salary in outside earned income.
WSJ showed that most Senators are already millionaires before they are elected. Bernie Sanders is not that wealthy, most of his net worth is tied up in home equity and his recent 6 or 7 figure book deal.
As a long time user of Subscribe and Save, I can assure you this is not the case. If there are changes to my S&S items; price availability, etc. I receive an email well in advance of my next delivery date indicating these changes. I also receive an e-mail containing the items and cost of my next delivery, with several days in which to cancel, change delivery date or make other changes.
OTOH DASH buttons are a ridiculous idea!
"It could also have been called a belated step to replicate the mute button already available on many keyboards."
I want to mute one ad or one tab, not my whole computer! Like so many on this site, I use ad blockers and flash blockers to keep that annoying stuff out. I read the web, if I wan to watch video, I have a big screen TV for that.
Downvoted because link is to article regarding removal of Mansfield bars for agricultural trucks. Has no applicability to side-impact collisions.
IIHS has tested aero panels as under-ride protection, they are worthless:
Enhanced panel (more expensive) can prevent side impact underride, but may complicate ground clearance, access and other actual trucking related issues.
"We sold your contract on" he admits with the smugness that only comes from a watertight signed contract. "We had another more important customer who wanted your existing printers and these were the only things we could lay our hands on at short notice.
Which can only mean, the other customer didn't want these POS printers, so we have to come steal yours!
"It seems obvious that people building digital home movie collections on external hard drives will need a comprehensive labelling system to show the contents,"
Isn't that what Explorer/Finder/File Manager/insert favorite program name here is for?
I mean, when I want to see the contents of my external drive, I click on My Computer, and click on the drive. I don't stare at the case, hoping to divine the contents like Carnack!!
"Sadly, in our limited testing the Ubuntu One site continually timed out and threw proxy errors so we never able to login and sync our files. If nothing else, we take that as a sign that the service is popular with Ubuntu users."
If you replaced "Ubuntu" with "Microsoft" it would read like this:
Sadly, in our limited testing the MicrosoftOne site continually timed out and threw proxy errors so we never able to login and sync our files. If nothing else, we take that as a sign that the service is COMPLETE AND UTTER BOLLOCKS, AND MS CAN'T CODE THEIR WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG!!
Really, why can't you just tell us Ubuntu One isn't working, or do a little actual investigating to find out why it isn't working, instead of MAKING THINGS UP?
