Reminds me of a skate magazine I read in the 80s where people would write in to say they still hadn't received the free Nelson Mandela advertised on a previous issue's cover.
Don't dress up your sarcasm in floury language.
The true videophiles will be buying vintage 1024x768 TFT screens from 1997 because only over VGA can you really capture the warmth and vibrancy of the signal.
I've actually been watching the Formula E races, because I'm into Formula 1 and there are a bunch of B-list ex-F1 drivers in there.
As far as I can tell, there's a fairly strong emphasis on it being entertainment rather than sport. For example, drivers get a boost button they can use during the race if they're the "fan favourite" before the race. There are also some gimmicks like bonus points for fastest lap and pole position. In the pre-season trailers, one of the key talking points was the DJ that was going to be guesting for each race.
The races themselves are fairly laughable - short, with a fairly hilarious car swap when they run out of juice (the driver hops out of one car and does a little dash to the other car), and the cars themselves are fugly as hell and all the bits are wobbly (so... a bit like me I guess). The coverage is completely ghetto, minimum-budget stuff -- it's on ITV4 in the UK, which tells you everything you need to know.
However, it's a a new series, and the drivers at least are for real, so I'm giving it time to grow.
Please guys let's stay on topic
I would guess it's because Google and Apple make the other browsers (apart from Firefox) and will begin to integrate their cloud services into the browser, which could potentially lock Microsoft out.
From the z in apologize I'd think we're dealing with an American troll.
The Grammar Nasi
samzenpus: "Cortana - what is the difference between its and it's?"
Cortana: "I'd tell you, but let's not pretend you care!"
These appear to have wi-fi, so probably not as dumb as one would like.
Dancing peck mussels was how I discovered I was allergic to seafood
I'd assume (without further info) that this is about the "allow some non-intrusive advertising" checkbox you get in the filter options. It's on by default, but when you install adblock (as I did a few days ago) it one of the things you go through when the configuration dialog pops up.
It links to: https://adblockplus.org/en/acc...
It's not perfect in that it's on by default, but it's easy enough to disable. Perhaps they could improve it by tying this checkbox to your "do not track" preference?
Where I live (a stone's throw from Canary Wharf, London's other major financial centre and where the fat internet pipes come into the UK) there's no fibre, no LTE, and the exchange is miles away. 2MB down has been the best I've been able to get for the last decade, with no change in sight. I blame Thatcher!
I wasn't aware the BSDs have different kernels. Do OpenBSD kernel changes also end up in the other BSDs?
(I guess it might not be worth it as I recently saw confirmation that *BSD is dying.)
For those too lazy to google:
I recommend Django to you. It seems to be written by clueful folk who care about things like backwards compatibility and fixing the small broken things rather than throwing it all away for the next version. As a bonus, it's not PHP.
