McKinnon loses extradition fight

Mark Manderson
Happy

bye bye Gary! bend over and take it like a man (McKinnon that is!)

I have no pity or feel anything for this bellend.

He knew what he was doing he was a system Admin, to say he was a bumbling amatuer at hacking is complete tosh....I heard a radio interview with this bellend a month or two back and he was actually complaining because of all the publicity he couldnt get another job in IT......err sorry you tool but that wasnt because of all the bad press, no-one could trust you, you twat!

the other reason he gave in the interview was that he was looking for ufo evidence as this "should" be for all worldwide......sorry when did you become Fox mulder McKinnon????? That makes it ALL allright then...........

Hypothetically if someone orchestrated a contract killing from the UK to say a US citizen located in the US at the time of the killing....where would he be trialled.....yup you guessed it US of A, this is not any different, the criminal act of circumventing protection (even if there is none) the PCs without permission is a criminal act and one that a so called "system-admin" would know exactly what he was doing!

He knew exactly what he was doing, was even handed a mickey mouse trial/sentence chance in the US and the chutney ferret turned it down.

Get read for Bubba, Gary, your his little puppy now!

To the posters saying why are we bending over and taking uncle sams beef jerky? Err you ever seen JUST how much £ we owe the US of A for their "help" in WWI and WW2? Think of them like your mean big brother, you know him, the guy who defends you against those little twits at school, then on the way home he demands your Texan bar and tomorrows dinner money cos he "helped" your sorry ass!!

This has to be a record!

zippety zapzap

rolled back and installed XP on a number of M-1330s and have had a few little zaps in the process.

end users that get them are gits anyway :P so im saying nothing......

@Sarah Millin

for the M-1530/1330 try the US dell site, after speaking to Dell UK about rolling back I got "its not supported" so I googled it myself.

the only thing to keep in mind is before installing xp do the following:

Disable the cacheram device and change the Sata drive to Base mode.

(the AHCI mode would work if you can find AHCI drivers for the system that work in XP, I gave up.)

Apart from that XP runs a dream on the systems.

Dell US have the HD audio drivers & the 8400GS drivers that work flawlessly in XP. UK dell hadnt a clue! If you cant find the 8400 drivers jot down the name of the device in bios and google it, there are working links!

spooky

I read the article and opened Bthome hub manager........to be greeted with entering the serial number of the box and to set a new password.

Is it me or is this awfully co-incidental...........could swear I was in the web ui yesterday or sunday with no prompts like this lol

Bt reports no such flaw and I check firmware to see it updated itself............spooky!

Dell tells customer 'Mac is good option'

Mark Manderson
Happy

when are they gonna release the i-Rucksack?

@Webcrawler2050

Of course there are no viruses, malware or spyware for a MAC as you put it.....why the flip would a Migratory Account Code be liable for viruses.........

An Apple Mac on the other hand DO have worms and malware, they just arnt anywhere near prevelant due to Apples small worlwide market share buddy, mark my words if Mac ever get as big as Windoze, it would have just as many nasties. Think like a Vxz writer or malware muppet....hmm code an exploit for 3% of worldwide share of 97% hmm maximum damage minimum effort.....To think otherwise is a narrow minded and ignorant assumption sir.

The Dell guy should be commended for giving open and unbiased advice to begin with............

When is known, known and not an uknown, unknown

"The first two make some kind of sense, its on the 3rd one that ol' Rummy goes off with the fairies.

Can anyone give an example of an 'unknown unknown'?"

I would but then it would be a "known unknown" and not an "unknown uknown" would it?

PC superstore refuses to take sack in hand

Mark Manderson

PC World Class

An old college mate of mine who completed his HND in IT Support applied for a job with PC World at the local store (he was desperate to get into IT)

They were advertising for a position of service technician back before the "tech guys" when they were "Intel" approved.....??? (Im Dyson approved....holds as much clout)

He wasnt even interviewed due to him being "Overqualified" says it all really.....

Anytime Im passing PCW I like to go in and watch the salesmen/women talk total drivel to the gormless customers who havnt a clue...when they leave the customer to check availability (in reality I think they run off to the back store to say "HAHAHA Look what I have this old duffer sucked into buying!!!") half the time I approach the customer to say btw buddy hes/she is talking total bollocks and try to assist them.....then leg it before they return :o)

I see it as a good turn to the masses of non techies....
