I tried the preview, yawned and reloaded my Fav linux distro, nothing much to see here. Win7 still seems to be the pinnacle at the moment...
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I still come across older cars that had both speed scales.. Even my wife pretty much unconsciously knows that approx 40mph = 60km/h; 50 mph = 80km/h and 60mph = 100km/h..... Even after we switched in the 70's people are still mainly bi-lingual... talk to me about the weight of a new baby and unless it's in lb I really am not sure if 2889g is big or not.....Arguments against fully " metracizing " are pretty moot. Been in a country that changed over and hearing all the hand wringing makes me sit back and laugh.
As if they would EVER allow anyone else to use NFC while they are growing a new walled garden/money spinner.
Cubic, what a bunch of crooks
We had them foist their crap on us in Brisbane, AU the only winner was the gub'ment coz the system wasn't flexible.
took 2+ yrs to implement and be relieable enough to use
Overall a great stuff up
Never stopped the Liberals before look at their previous policies on telecommunications. Patch work quilt Alex out on the fly.
I don't care for the year of the Linux desktop. I like the variety, coz when bad decisions are made I can move on. Mint is the first distro that works the way I do. Windoze users can do whatever the hell they do I don't care.
I meant poor performing against the standards set within my company...
In my company you would be out on your butt so fast your head would spin.
We demand, clean code correct code and correct documentation.
We also peer review the work and have the right to reject, which I do regularly Most of my colleagues correct their mistakes and admit to a brain fart day. poor performing colleagues strangely become redundant................
Ever tried to get a Kodak camera fixed???
Pay $x(read alot) up front for a quote, they send you someone elses fixed camera!!!!
who know how it was looked after, what environment it lived in etc etc etc....... that was my last Kodak...
Bought a Nikon DSLR and never looked back
what tripe!!! all the above is done in AU.
A blocked IMEI can still call 112 the international emergency number as well as 000 the local equiv of 911.
Each carrier keeps a local copy of the stolen register and updates regularly and the phone IMEI is then blocked ***at registration*** to the network not on a per call basis if it is used at all.
One thing Au has over the US is only 3 networks and not a patchwork of carriers, this makes things rather easier.
The AU example if I remember correctly was a Govt. mandated requirement, ie. do yourselves or we will make it law.....
LOL.... ""./"" 'd already...............
who cares how long it takes......
@ $3000/m. they will.....
jizz up your love life.
Stiffen your pecker
lighten the load on your wallet so you can sit flat on your couch while "pullin' the pud' about music
I think all this dicussion is an example of GET A LIFE......
I use FLAC, AAC MP3 and dont give a shit coz' in the end, the music for me is background and I dont feel the need to do any of the above
Can't why this is flamebait, seems closer to the truth than not.....
GPL isn't part of the Telstra culture, I'm going for oversight and relying on the supplier to have crossed the "T's" and dotted the "I's"
Ubuntu is without a doubt the best distro for most users. Yeah, I know I could have more customization with Debian, yeah, I know I could be faster if I ran Gentoo, yeah, I know I could be more on the bleeding edge if I used Fedora, but when it comes down to it, Ubuntu is the best distro for most people
correct! so far I have converted 6 other ppl who would normally have not even considered it. to further top that off, when ppl come to my house and need to use a PC they just say "this looks different to my PC" I dont say a word and THEY USE IT ANYWAY without any coaching...... Ubuntu = usability = ubiquity(eventually) I care not for Geek cred, just wanna get the job done and Ubuntu ticks the boxes
