Well, as far as I understand, Google will stay on as Google. It'll just be a subsidiary under Alphabet Inc. It's to give their other non-search engine companies a chance to develop without being stuck with the negativities of the Google name.

So Android's going to be an individual brand.
Whomever is developing the electric self-driving car is going to get their own name. Etcetera.

As long as they're not calling themselves The Umbrella Company, I think we can sleep easy. :)

Google's new parent company - will make the tech giant's activities "cleaner and more accountable"


*alarming out of view experiment*

Oh. Oh good. I can rest easy now.

I can't recommend snorting and sniffing when done simultaneously though...

Hope everyone's enjoying their outrage :)

Here's to hoping I have a decade or two left in me as well......

BTW, I won the caption thread in the Cafe yesterday. I got home last night after a 12 hour shift and was too tired to look for something. By the time I woke up this morning, Seti was down, and I shall be gone to work another 12 before Seti is back up again.

If folks can wait, I shall try to find something when I get back home tonight.
If they get too anxious, I shall not be offended if the runner up is given the nod to carry on.

Meow.

Well I'm so down to earth and laid back that I'm positively horizontal :-)

You can't be down to earth and be laid back. You never seen the video?

Here then, something to kill time. Find the hidden passages in these hi-res photographs of King Tut's burial chamber.

Ugh, VLAR stop misusing my mouse, please! I don't mind you running on my HD7870, but don't interfere with everything I am doing.

I see we're missing some CSS on the Server status page. It was all more 'grouped' earlier on. Oh and the Seti menu bar is a bit broken.

Looks better if you don't try to use https. Nothing super-secret on there, is there?

Edit - removed the half of the quote I'm not referring to.

That shouldn't matter. It's not two separate pages, just a different protocol.

Blame Richard. He wanted the uncontrolled database growth fixed, so all those 'cannot find workunit' messages would go away. ;-)
