Microsoft arms half-wit developers with PHP handgun

Thumb Down

I am assuming the author is a bit of a retard!

Yes ok PHP is nice an easy but lets be honest now, the majority of dynamic websites out there run off the back of PHP, so it can't be that bad.

Oh and I am guessing you really don't know the weight of a rifle these days!

"For those of you that aren't web developers, this is a bit like trying to kill a person with a rifle by clubbing them in the foot with it, hoping that the blunt end of the weapon will break the skin somehow, and your victim will die of an infection because he's in a place so remote that there's no access to antibiotics."

Considering if you hit someone hard enough with the "foot" (heel or butt I think you may have been looking for there) in the head you could quite easily kill them!

What the Hell!!!

EU says Microsoft violated law with IE on Windows



So if MS didn't include IE on windows how would we download a copy of firefox to use as our main web browser, without the use of another computer. and last time I checked Safari came on all Mac boxs and FireFox or that useless Konquer on Linux, so should they be removing their default browsers as well.

I think the EU are a bunch of twits!

Net shoppers bullied into being Verified by Visa


Way around signing up!!!

Simple way around the VbyV screen is to type in the first page of details then click the sign up button, then on the next page where you should enter a password simply click the really small cancel button at the bottom of the page and your purchase will be accepted, works for me anyway!!!

give it a go, these two systems are total crap!

Microsoft to kill Windows with 'web-centric' Midori?


So what happens if your intowebnet connection goes down

Now a-days, if the internet connection dies you can just go and make a cup of tea and have a lie down or watch a film, or even do something none internet based on your machine!! But if every things up in some bloody cloud and your internet connection stops working for a day or so your computer is rendered useless until the internet comes back, Kettle probably still works though!! :-)

@ Dear Drum D

Sounds like a gap in the market if you ask me!! ;-)

Adobe pulls bug-riddled Photoshop update


Adobe releasing software with bugs!!

Sounds like all other adobe products, they all have tonnes of unacceptable bugs, including acrobat reading (every time firefox appears to crash on my machine I just close acrobat process and weridly firefox starts working again, its as if is an adobe cock up not a firefox one!

And even when I used Acrobat Pro to produce a PDF it took about 5 odd minutes to do it and spent the time flickering about with the screen and opening up dialogs then closing them automatically - when MS office 07 does a PDF in well nano seconds really and so does the old free fave open office!! so how come Adobe's product is the worst.

Adobe are bloody hopeless!! (ahhh thats better got that rant out of me) lol

Greens walk out of nuclear debate


RE: Greens never make sense

Nope they really don't, they are all mad. In there heads they see everythink from an idealist world point of view where if we build a small wind farm and get rid of all other power stations that, that will be enough to power the country and CO2 emissions will go away. How wrong they are, they don't get the concept that currenty in this country it is not in any way shape or form possible to produce enough renewable energy to power the country or to not have to use nuclear.

Yes nuclear is not good, but its the best of a bad bunch and it solves the prob short term whilst we find a better way to solve it. As long as all the right precautions are taken and it is done properly it will be safe and then once we have secured power for the next 40 years or so (life cycle of a nuclear station) they we can look more into renewable ways and decreasing peoples usage,

but if we don't act soon we won't be able to produce any power, and i really don't have enough AA batteries to run my torch for 10 years, :-)

A US CERT reminder: The net is an insecure place


Re: NOT new to the past 5 weeks

hehe love the way the person that posted this comment did not read the article at all, briliant!!

And yeah as other people have said it can be fixed and as long as secure cookies are kept seperate and only sent over secure connection and there is no using half a ssl and half not during login then it can be fixed!
