Th sharpen their attention,the Directors and managers that signed off the 'bad' design/implantation are personally libel jointly along with the company.
Didn't he run a brewery?
An awesome engineering monument.
I've always wanted to know how concrete sets under water?
Going into BRS mode.....
A little while ago, I downloaded the MS Win10 compatibility exe.
After letting the utility run, all it came back with is “x number of applications on your PC will not work with WIN10”
The trouble being it did not give me the list of the which applications on my machine would not work. If it had, then I could have had something I could work on getting upgrades/replacements or discard etc.
I'm not legal expert but it the question I suspect has to boil down to 1) victim is in the USA 2) perpetrator is in Nigeria. So where is the crime committed?
I would guess, if the 'victim' wants justice, then that is where the trail should take place.
However, the tag 419, comes from the Nigerian penal code for this type of crime.
Why has .com been used(abused) when many shoud be .co.us.
I can only consider truly global companies should be allowed to use the .com TLD.
people get paid for doing this stuff?
Where do I sign up for this kind of work.
has the excuse of "used different accounting methodology" been used?
I've seen it twice in the last few days here on El Reg alone (Universal Credits Project I think was the other one??).
I mean, when looking at these schemes/projects that total £xxBN, can there be that many different ways to count money spent, and add on money to be spent?
I know I'm being simplistic, but this is becoming a very tired and overused excuse.
just one evolutionary step away from politicians?
France did grant him asylum, how does he think he will be able to travel to France without stepping onto British soil, and therefore get nabbed by Dixon of Dock Green waiting outside?
It's called a bookmark......
I've been in the 21st Century for the last 15 years, are you surgesting that MS is only now catching up?
How do you define an algorithm to describe a chair, something to sit on. Is that algorithm good enough to correctly distinguish a dining table chair, a stool, sofa, a park bench?
Oh my, Oh my, tip of the hat for that one. Manchester Encoding was the best, it only lost out due to the greed of some company that shall remain nameless.
I had a BBC Master, complete with 80186 co-pro which allowed me to run MS DOS programs faster than the IBM PC and IBM XT machines I used at work! Greast bit of kit.
Either it is Beer O'clock, or it's not and I can go back to sleep. What more do you need form any time system?
There is one in every IT office, they sit quietly in the corner. Have you noticed how they never break sweat, no matter how loud the management shouts, they never rush. They don't need to because the Technocodger just knows.........
Umm, that would have been the Normans, not the French.
I am not a number, I am a free man
I'd go for Dexter, fomr the show of the same name.
Genua had once controlled the river mouth and taxed its traffic in a way that couldn't be called piracy because it was done by the city government.

Not quite. This panel may well heavily influence tax policies in the EU for the next few years. But the issue of internataional tax is dealt with at International Law & Trade treaties level.
I suspect that when a lot of this was done back in the day when international trade involved selling cars, or food, or raw products (coal, steel) etc around the world rather than thse more intangiable 'electronic goods'
The best defence is offence, or should that be offensive defence? Just aksing like.. :)
"b) They will just send it back as it's not broken as per specification"
However if they have used the word SECURE, at least once in their advertising or the specification, then......
What next, a Rock-Chick Boffin?
One thing that strikes me is the big numbers being thrown around, 900,000 documents, 1.7 million etc.
How long does it take to read that number of documents, let alone fully digest.understand what they talking about, and then decide if they should be published?
If you take the 900k number,
At one page per document, and a reading time of 30 seconds per page that still takes just shy of 4 working years (8 hours per day, 5 days per week, 48 weeks per year)
given that the 'interesting' documents are morel ikly to be a lot longer than 1 page, you do the maths!
If (a big if) I remember correctly, with operation Black Buck, the logisitics of setting a rolling relay of in-flight refueling points, where the tankers had to be refuled in mid flight, to refuel the Vulcan's (I think there where two on the mission??) was mind blowing.
I always wondered how the hell the F104 Starfighter could fly with it's very stubby wings.
Mind you, if I remember correctly there were an awful lot of accidents with the F104.
At one air show I went to (late 70's) a Vulcan flew down the runway at 200/300 ft then the pilot pulled the stick back so far that it looks like it was standing on it's tail. The afterburners were lit up and the ground shook as the Vulcan went up veritcally.
God it was a beautiful sight and sound!!!!!
I think the same was said about the Vulcan as well.
Vote early and vote oftern.
Many years ago, I has a 1974 Vauxhall Viva, in the owners manual, to said

"....640KB (of RAM) is more then enough for anyone...."
Got to say, therre have been many times over the years I want'ed to throw a server or ten out of the 3rd floor window.

Can't Hollywood find any good scripts to churn out into a film?
I mean, honestly, well will this translate into audiance numbers?
"MyQ Garage (an Internet interface to garage door systems)"
Why on god's green earth does anyone need an internet interface to their garage door?
Say it ain't ture!!!!!!!!!!
"Sample didn't have a neat answer, but did admit that Microsoft's use of Irish tax arrangements are in decline because the product line that was given the “Double Irish Dutch Sandwich” treatment is in decline"
Can anyone say which product of MS is in decline? Is there something they are not telling us?
I remember watching the first BTTC race on the telly and one of the wag commentators saying words to the effect of "Do they know this is the Touring car race, not the TOWING car race?"
Anyways, I was so impressed the next year I bought a 850 with the 2.5 20V engine, the T5 did not come out till 96 (I think).
So 20 years later, I still have the 850, still going strong.
I guess this starts to blur the lines from traditonal (Turner, DeVinchi etc) art, through modern (Herst etc) art into political statement.
but when you get statements like this "... enables us to focus on often difficult-to-grasp questions about who owns our digital data and the right to privacy .."
For myself (YMMV) it just seems to more of a political point than art.
It's amazing the stuff I never knew!!
"The ten Colossi built between 1943 and 1945 and put to work at Bletchley Park were all dismantled and completely destroyed immediately after the conclusion of the conflict"
I'm sure I read/heard that after the war in 1945, not all of the Colossi where destroyed. but that some of them where moved to places such as RAF Eastcote and used by the American's for breaking of Soviet codes, as the Soviet's used the ex-German egnigma machines.
Thanks for the recap of some of the background.
Is not Geo-Blocking, just another form of trade barrier which is contra to the purpose of the EU Free market?
.. when the cops nicked a villain and stuffed their pockets with wads of £20 notes.
Or otherwise know as the guys from the Garden Shed (Secret Testing HQ) popping out for some fresh air and wondering what these other guys are doing watching them?
