Finally after having to delete my Linux partitions and restoring the windows master boot record Microsoft finally allowed me to upgrade to windows 10...

Lets see if it was worth all the trouble

BTW Microsoft ...you might have gotten away with this in the 80s, 90s or even in the 00s but this behavior of destroying people's boot setup by either forcing us to restore the windows mbr or purposely rewriting it is fucking moronic. We are now in 2015 and this is a despicable modus operandi

Now that you seem to have selected a CEO that at least is not nuts... can we please stop it!?

People should have the right to have 2 or more OS in their PC is they so choose to.

You might even have created a product that does not suck in windows 10...but you have already made me bias against it because of these unhelpful tactics.

Update: change windows language locale to en-US before attempting to install windows 10...
 
I guess I will not be testing out windows 10 just yet.

+Andy Payne i agree. I have core i7 in my MBP. You may, however be missing the difference between component prices in the UK, v US.

Over here, much more expensive. I used to build my own boxes, until the component prices got silly.

We can't have a straight talking politician taking truth to power can we?

So here comes the banking industry controlled media trying to make the finance minister the fall guy for the mess they created in Greece.

But it will not work. People are now seeing trough all their bullshit.

If there is anyone that should be facing treason charges is the the ruling party and Tsipras for ignoring the voice of the people that offered a resounding no to what they agreed with the EU.

That is what I call treason...Finding a way to offer help to Greek citizens held under ransom by bank closures and restricting capital liquidity is not.

In fact, what Variufakis was planning is similar to what happened in California when they went bankrupt ... a type of emergency liquidity in the form of IOUs

I kind of hope that they do bring charges of treason against him because that would just strengthen him as the voice of the Greek people against unelectable powers. ..and when Greece is back in the same place as it was a few weeks ago when this latest bailout fails once again and he is proven right... AGAIN... Who do you think the Greek people will blame?
I'll give you a hint ... not Varoufakis ... he will be seem as the hero warning people from the start that this was always going to happen.
 
Yanis Varoufakis, the former finance minister, told a group of investors in London that a five-man team under his control had been working for months on a contingency plan to create euro liquidity if the European Central Bank cut off emergency funding to the Greek financial system, as it in fact did after talks broke down and Syriza called a referendum.

The transcripts were leaked to the Greek newspaper Kathimerini. The telephone call took place a week after he stepped down as finance minister.

"The prime minister, before we won the election in January, had given me the green light to come up with a Plan B. And I assembled a very able team, a small team as it had to be because that had to be kept completely under wraps for obvious reasons," he said.

Mr Varoufakis recruited a technology specialist from Columbia University to help handle the logistics. Faced with a wall of obstacles, the expert broke into the software systems of the tax office - then under the control of the EU-IMF 'Troika' - in order to obtain the reserve accounts and file numbers of every taxpayer. "We decided to hack into my ministry’s own software programme," he said.

[...]

Mr Varoufakis claimed the cloak and dagger methods were necessary since the Troika had taken charge of the public revenue office within the finance ministry. "It’s like the Inland Revenue in the UK being controlled by Brussels. I am sure as you are hearing these words your hair is standing on end,” he said in the leaked transcripts.

Mr Varoufakis said any request for permission would have tipped off the Troika immediately that he was planning a counter-attack. He was ready to activate the mechanism the moment he received a "green light" from the prime minister, but the permission never came.

"I always told Tsipras that it will not be plain sailing but this is the price you have to pay for liberty," he told the Telegraph.

"But when the time came he realised that it was just too difficult. I don't know when he reached that decision. I only learned explicitly on the night of the referendum, and that is why I offered to resign," he said. Mr Varoufakis wanted to seize on the momentum of a landslide victory in the vote but was overruled.

[...]

"[German finance minister Wolfgang] Schauble believes that the eurozone is not sustainable as it is. He believes there has to be some fiscal transfers, some degree of political union. He believes that for that political union to work without federation, without the legitimacy that a properly elected federal parliament can render, can bestow upon an executive, it will have to be done in a very disciplinary way.

[...]

"And he said explicitly to me that a Grexit is going to equip him with sufficient terrorising power in order to impose upon the French that which Paris has been resisting: a degree of transfer of budget-making powers from Paris to Brussels."

Mr Varoufakis told the Telegraph that Mr Schauble had made up his mind that Greece must be ejected from the euro, and is merely biding his time, knowing that the latest bail-out plan is doomed to failure.

I do think Google plus need to evolve and fix some of the bad choices made with some broken integrations. .. however youtube is not one of them!

Although many people did not like it, Google plus made perfect sense as the commenting layer for youtube and it helped clean up massively the cesspool that was the comment thread of youtube prior to the g+ integration.

Google was right in that point. ..and it is one of the main reasons I am worried that the people that day this signal the demise of g+ may be right. ..this time.

I understand removing the social layer when it does not make sense to force one. .. but why remove it where the functionality is 100% social interaction?

So. .. yesterday a dear friend of ours looked after my son so that me and my wife could go on our first movie night of the year. ..

We decided to go and see inside out. .and I'm really glad we did. ..

I was happy to see that pixar being bought by Disney did not ruin the team. ..

This is without a doubt one of their best movies and that is not easy to do when your catalog includes so many amazing films!

I saw the version in 3d. But I am sure even the 2d version is worth it.

The technical achievements are not as groundbreaking as movies like toy story... but the plot, the character construction...everything is amazing and even managed to be educational.

Well done pixar! You have done in once again!

You don't say???!!!

Removing the major source of news distribution leads to huge lost revenue.

Do these guys need PhDs to find this out?

The majority of EU governments are being run by morons with little or none technical knowledge.

Oh...and the publishing industry is reaping what the sew.... idiots!

+Aaron Jaeger​ all those filtering mechanisms were there before g+ integration and it made absolutely no difference.

The only reason g+ was able to provide a degree of control was because it was not as easy to create many g+ accounts than to comment anonymously.

The weak trolls would be discouraged to comment on their own personal account and "professional" trolls required much more efforts to keep creating new accounts to be able to confine their behalf after being reported

Favourite quote: "Today a young man on acid realized that matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there's no such thing as death, life's only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves" The great Bill Hicks.

Went there to get some additional information on how the Thomas Cook travel vouchers work and maybe get some suggestions on how to use the ones I have been gifted as our wedding present. Could not have find a more unhelpful (verging on rude) employee. Not only did he sounded annoyed we decided to go into his establishment, he gave us the bare minimum information he needed to get us out the door, kept typing away in his computer occasionally looking at us while talking. I understand that he might have been busy (if that was the case) but still - just let us know, propose a new time where he can devote some of his attention and time to us as potential clients. We would appreciate his candure and not leave feeling like we did a bad choice choosing travel cook vouchers as our wedding present!

I do get some drive-trough take away occasionally and it is very common that at the point of collecting your meal they ask you to park the car and wait for a staff member to go and deliver the food. ..this makes the whole point of a drive-through pointless.
