It is an image but...
This is so going to fail in court.
1) It needs to be obscene not just nude to be illigal
2) If this counted you might as well say a X-ray or MMR scan of children are also illegal
ARCH need to STFU!
I was not aware these people existed and I am now a little scared.

To users of unfamiliar web browsers
Using IE6 - upgrade already!
Using Chrome - more likely to go for Chocolate Factory apps
Using Opera - Why?
Using Safari on Windows - WTF? Even the Fanboys know its shit!
They will get a market share...
... because the fanboys will use anything apple make regardless of how s*** it is.
Google Apps is really not that great.
I wouldn't pay for it. I'd rather pay for MS Office or use open office.
Google Apps sharing feature is about the only good thing going for it.
Sponging benefits claimants
Computer says no.
Best BOFH for ages!
Great episode Simon!

Hmmm I think I won't be signing up
Why? Just why would you do that?
Best BOFH in ages! Great work Simon.
Ignore all the idiots who failed to get the fake introduction.
I often find my screen is fuzzy after using Stella
About 6 cans normally does the tick
Kim Il-sung is going to be pissed off!
His flying laser money project is going less well!
I was wondering how long it would take for a scathing article from El Reg and this does not disappoint.
That's what you get when you too much porn!
Looks like it warped their fragile little minds.
You are all wrong
It is well known that the moon is made of cheese. I would have thought you would know that!
It may be that if it wasn't for Facebook...
"It may be that if it wasn't for Facebook, some students would still find other ways to avoid studying"
What the hell is that? If it is not made of brass and nicely polished hardwood what is the point building a steam car?
No sense of style!
Best story of the week
Oh I thought it was Friday for a second :(
Can I be the first to point out it is all well and good until the flying "death bots" with "freakin laser beams" decide we are are the the ones that need to be wiped out!
How much for the rocket launcher or mini gun turret options?
Get the boffins back on something useful like flying cars or breeding monkeys with wings!
What I want to know is who voted for her? <clickety> ah Redditch that explains it...
Redditch you suck!
Its a bit off topic but on the IceCube site is says:
"We actually use large volumes of ice below the South Pole to watch for the rare neutrino that crashes into an atom of ice."
So Ice is an element? Have they thought out using atoms of Fire, Earth and Air?
Where is the ROTM flag?
How are we supposed to keep track of the fearsome escalation in arms bringing us closer and closer to cybergedon?
Has the Reg been taken over by the machines?
re: A word of warning
1) You installed a beta OS on your PC and didn't backup your files.
2) You formatted a volume and didn't double check it was the right one.
You fail at IT!
Oh and Windows 7 is great - it is what Vista should have been.
"spum-churning zombies" is this a new term I'm not aware of or is it a typo? Frankly I'm not prepared to goggle it to find out!
/mines the one without the spum on it!
WFT is Web 4.0?
You just made that up didn't you.
Re: I'm fed up with ugly women complaining.

Ministry of Humour
Perhaps the government should establish a ministry for humour so they can vet what we should find funny. I mean what is the world coming to when you can't make dead prostitute jokes?
If you find it reasonable that the police / security services can use surveillance on telephones then it is not that unreasonable to allow them to access disks - but it should only be done with the appropriate judicial controls and warrants.
Like the article says with the proper precautionary measures you could stop plod planting the trojan in the first place.

re: You can't just hammer hard drives in big companies
I work in the education sector and we have over the last few weeks replaced about a hundred desktops and disposed of a handful of old servers. I know that's not a massive scale but it's not insignificant. In most cases Shred worked fine, with a few we had to use other tools and there were a dozen or so failed drives that had to be physical destroyed.
Yes it is a pain and it takes time but it has to be done*. Its the "too much time" attitude that cause these leaks.
*Think of the Children** :P
** Actually its people thinking of the Children that cause us to have to wipe everything :D
