wow Sirius that is great .

I would say they are 100% right about the colour of the die they would have to use , i would not get ob a plane that looked like it has just gone 15 rounds in a boxing ring even if the wings look like they are not damaged apart from the colour of the die used

But bloody great . The Brits have done it again . We are a industrious lot

That's what I thought. Personally, I don't really care who comes up with these ideas as long as it helps improve mankind in whatever aspect those ideas are for.

It's nice to see this thread get back on track without ridiculous O/S crapola spoiling it.

Interesting report.
Self healing technology

This is awesome! ;)

Self healing technology:)
I have done a system called Tribologen that is self healing.
http://www.tribologen.se/
This morning I got an email from one of my costumers.
Error 3146: ODBC: call failed.
[Microsoft] [ODBC SQL Server Driver] [SQL Server] Conversion failed when converting datetime from character string. (#241)

My answer was this.
You have to be religious to understand it :)
I have had that problem as well. Similarly, Electrolux and a company in Stenungsund. AkzoNobel?
The solution for me was to wait a week or so, the problem will solved...
This was a few years (4, 5 years) ago, and I think it's a bug in Windows 7.
They'll have to contact Microsoft "Support". Good luck :)

And of course do your praying.

All a game of paid-for FUD as a new Marketing tool?...

All a new level of LAIRS?...


Fake online reviews prompt probe

Businesses are ambushing rivals with fake reviews and customers are using the threat of online criticism to win discounts, research has found.

Review sites may leave negative commentary...



"Naughty Intel" and cancerous Microsoft anyone?

Shoot all Marketing now?!

Intel's compiler: is crippling the competition acceptable?

Naughty Intel in for even more licks soon?

In order to receive grants from Kela you can get information on their whereabouts with the help of a personal code that is read by a satellite. You can also insert microchips into all Finns traveling abroad in case they receive medical subsidy from Kela.

I put this up as a warning .

Recently I have bought 2 items from Cooler Master

1 was a PSU I installed it and 6 hrs after I turn'ed it on the dam thing gave up the ghost and died .

Ok say I you will get the odd Lemon for a manufacturer no matter good good there reputation is as in life stuff happens and mistakes are made

However I have also bought a Liquid Cooling System from them a Sidion 120 v and I even looked at some reviews before I bought it

However 2 months after it has been installed the pump has stopped working .

once is acceptible but to buy 2 separate units from the same company and they both crap them self's after minimal use tells me they do not have good quality controls or are just a cheap crappy company .

I will be contacting them over this stuff up and depending on what they say and do I will either forgive or hit all the social networks and bad mouth that company till the end of time .

Social media is very good at causing big problems for company's that don't do the right thing by there customers .

So for now I would advise people not to buy there equipment no matter how cheap it is .

I will let you all know what happens over the next week or so and see just how honest this company is ..

Bit over the top there Glenn. I can't speak for the water cooling issue, but the PSU & the company itself I can. I've been using Coolermaster for well over a decade & to date, never had any issues with them.

Crap happens with electronics, that's a well known fact, so you can't publicly denigrate a company without 1st speaking to them which is what you're doing here.

An old-school way of high tech continues in the bluff?...

(Sensitivities Warning: The Register apt irreverence!)


IT jargon is absolutely REAMED...

My wife is looking at online porn again.

This can happen accidentally to anyone from time to time, usually while reading through the results of perfectly innocent web searches...

... It certainly brings entertaining new meaning to everyday expressions...

... This is not the first time my wife – a linguist – has inadvertently taught herself the language of...

... back to catchy names, metaphors and euphemisms. Computing is full of them...

... Indeed, almost as boring as the Steve Ballmer-authored BSOD. Surely he could have come up with something with more of that unique Ballmer personality such as: Woo! Yeah! All right! I love this crash!...

... Besides, everyone else is doing it...




I'll never look at those technical phrases in the same light ever again! You enjoy joining in with all the other sheep?... :-P


A good old giggle that hopefully should be ringing a little stale in our more and better enlightened times?

After all...

IT is what we make it!
