Actually in the UK it's the lack of a church that defines a hamlet.
Corporate versions of PGP provide employers with the ability to decrypt employees encrypted messages
Hmm on the Alfa analogy
Every Alfa owner I have known has loved the cars but ditched them as they spent more time getting fixed.
Then again having seen other peoples suffering with HTC phones possibly it s a suitable analogy.
Although my wife and I both had the original HTC Desire and really liked them but between the poor update policy (and sense bugs that where never fixed) and the final insulting android release that didn't leave enough space to install even the most minimal apps it was time to switch.
Re: Here's what I think happened
Fraid not my phone got many reboots last night along with sim card changes etc and no joy.
Phone was left to charge about 2:30 and at 7:00 connectivity had returned (without a further reboot) at the time I thought I had a duff sim and didn't trust it. It wasn't until I phoned EE that I found out it was the network itself
Re: The story I have heard is below
Ah well that adds to the huge pile of absolute bollocks i hqve heard today (on several subjects)
Re: Still no EE in the North West Cumbria
If you are in Dundee don't bother with O2 (and more so with Giff Gaff) as the only service my daughter finds reliable there is 3
The story I have heard is below
The mobile reseller Ovivo closed down yesterday without notice <<< Danger Sign
Apparently they where using EE as their provider and when they shutdown their kit it buggered up EE
I lost service somewhere around 19:00 and found that I had service again around 07:00 this morning, though I was blaming a faulty SIM card (due to EE having no obvious status page) as my wifes phone/SIM (T-Mobile) continued to work regardless (yes I exchanged SIM cards and the fault followed the card)
As I'm just outside Belfast I suspect the issue was more to do with routes to wherever the authentication servers exist rather than the actual mobile network
Shall we play a game
Lets call it Name the idiot that annoyed the admin.
It's funny how people expect storage on a phone to be sandboxed yet they don't expect it on a desktop or laptop for example. The developer should be looking after the saved data properly even if a sandbox is in place.
Yet there's so much whining going on now that Google are restricting the ability to write to SD card, however and whenever a developer wants.
No doubt sandboxing of data is on the way (now that KitKat permits automated cleanup of directories after an app is uninstalled)
If I released such an application then the data would be encrypted right from the start and the encryption key would NOT be easily available.
<sigh> Oi you stop shouting nonsence from the shallow end </sigh>
So I'm a moron for having a life, oh dear seems a little knowledge and a lack of useful things to do has made you think you have a valid opinion
Strangely enough the unaptly <sic> named Superhub, provides me with reasonable cover around the house, and generally works.
Why would I waste my time and money switching it to modem mode and installing an unnecessary wireless router?
If I want US Netflix I will stick with using a VPN service.
Firefox is a non standard option, therefore Dell will charge for the install.
As for installing it on all Dell machines, have you see the whinging that people do when they have something installed that they don't want, they start filing class actions on the manufacture for wasting their storage space.
I point you towards Samsung phone users complaining about the ANT drivers being installed (they're threatening court action)
Anyway if somebody needs Dell to install Firefox for them then they probably shouldn't be allowed to own a PC in the first place.
Please don't whinge about large rollouts as if you haven't got a suitable infrastructure to rollout required software to users then you probably shouldn't be involved with those machines in the first place.
2 months on 4G (or is it really 3.5G?)
I switched from T-Mobile to EE (well it's not really a switch) and I have to say that my coverage has improved and I happily get 4G connectivity in work and at home (previously I was lucky to get 3G at all in work)
However elsewhere it's all 3G and I can't see 3G being switched off for years, as for good old GSM I can't see it ever leaving.
Pity about the cover
Without the cover it looks excellent.
With the cover it's a case of Oh well!
See the iMitten string comment
Probably see a lot more iPads in the windows of Crack Converters when the criminals from the Met.
I also assume that they will only want white ones
Re: Wrist Tether ?
Well the apple users could have two iDevices and have them tethered like the idiot mittens of old
I the rest of the report is read
It's not only based on insurance claims, drop & submersion tests (and other slightly testable things) but their analysis of the construction and materials used.
I dunno about anybody else but I would pretty much expect my phone to expire if it was submerged, and would view it as a bonus if it could do a Lazarus impersonation.
We haven't killed any of them for almost a week
Re: I had the Sharp PC-1500 in 1992
Funny enough I found my PC-1500 in the attic a couple of days ago.
I also have one of the Ti portables which I will have to find (wish I had the cassette interface for it)
Re: Not DRONES just Radio Controlled Pests...
Can't use internal combustion engines in quads as they're steered by varying the motor speeds therefore electric motors have to be used (please don't mention an on board engine driving a generator)
Also unless the recipient lives within a couple of miles of an Amazon warehouse it sin't happening as the range simply doesn't exist.
As for ditching the parcels in the garden, that's bad enough at the moment with the alleged couriers we have to suffer.
Proof of delivery may be interesting with amazon answering saying well as you didn't have a garden we fucked it onto your roof, by the way can we have our quad back.
The Masters device ?
Is it just me or should The Masters Tissue Compression Eliminator not be reassigned to Captain Jack as it does look remarkably like a teenagers drawing of cock & balls ?
I like the road signs
They show where Apple are going, in this case it's straight towards
Wait for it.....
More of the same!
Which is what all the fan boys and media types want
Re: Good on Cryptoseal for doing the right thing
Oh dear you are relying on HoPo for information.
Sorry you are about 5 months behind the story
Has anybody ever seen an Oracle rollout that actually worked.
Actually has anybody seen an Oracle all encompassing solution that actually worked never mind at rollout.
Sorry just bitter about at the amount of tweaks we had to carry out because you have to do things the Oracle way (catering for the things that the back end just can't quite manage to do)
I have to say that I hope that they ditch the Indian team as they don't seem to understand that I am I am not phoning because I wish to buy additional service or because I am generally wishing to increase the size of my VM bill.
When I say I do NOT want these additional services, I am not being coy, I honestly don't want some irrelevance that only costs me £3.50 per month for the first 3.742 months of the 700 year contract you wish me to take
Apart from that (and the very expensive land line costs) VM have been OK.
The Scottish folks who have had to fix the upset that the Indian team causes have been very good and I hope nobody annoys them
Re: Of course they would say that
Today the fingerprints are NOT passed onto the NSA (et al) and are stored securely
Couple of updates later the fingerprints ARE uploaded to the NSA for secure storage.
Wonder if every ios future update will be checked by the security types for what happens to the data
How can Corel relive their glory days when they didn't have any.
Apart from a brief period when Corel Draw was the choice of backstreet vinyl cutters everywhere?
Corel was where tolerable software went to die (a bit like Computer Associates)
If using a spektrum receiver you would want to use Preset Failsafe rather than the default Hold Last Command failsafe mode.
With my APM 2.5 RTL (return to launch) is triggered on signal loss providing Preset Failsafe is used (otherwise the bugger simply lands wherever it happens to be)
Can't speak for Futaba kit as it's too expensive for me
Threadlocker isn't CA
Although they are from the same family they are not one and the same.
BTW one of the reasons that threadlock tubes are deliberately almost empty is because it will spontaneously harden if there is no air in the bottle, in the case of CA it's water that will cause curing.) Electrochemical reactions also causes threadlock to cure (also unlike CA)
Only DSMX does the frequency hopping, DSM2 simply selects appropriate channels on startup and sticks with them (I have seen the problems this causes once flying things get near electrical substations and other sources of noise)
Radio 4 Today broadcast
According to IDS his it was all the IT vendors fault as they did not understand what universal credit was.
Additionally all he did was say how the previous government stuffed things up, that was 3 years ago, you have been making your own mistakes for over 3 years, grow up
From my peripheral experience of the NHS disaster that's because the customer (DWP & Mr IDS) didn't know what they wanted and couldn't actually define what the system was supposed to do.
When they could define it then some empire building uncivil servant decided they wanted something else and the IT supplier was forced to implement frig thin to include these arbitrary changes.
Yeah the provider didn't understand the system because you move the goalposts every 20 minutes and the difference between what you need and what you want (a profusion of petty fiefdoms)
Probably didn't look too hard
Probably only went into the local Tesco Metro.
I managed to pick up a Nook from Sainsburys in mid May, here where still many available for ages after that in several Tesco and Sainsburys branches as I considered picking up a couple simply to play about with the hardware.
Maybe they heard of quantum entanglement
and therefore mistakenly believed that destroying one copy would cause all other copies to vanish as well
So how can the rest of the world vote the NSA away, or GCHQ for that matter.
Having spent 3 says trying to get shitty Oracle products working via a content switch, where the Oracle support team where telling us not to do completely normal things because their products couldn't cope with it.
Re: Only a matter of time.
Wondering about which time warp you fell through regarding locks and cars, the shitty wafer locks are long gone.
It isn't a lock problem it's a nature of cars problem, they have windows, doors made of folded sheet metal and often a fabric roof. 'Tumblers are easy to deal' what a glorious almost politician like generalisation with well lets see you deal with an Assa Flexcore with anything other than a power drill or breaking the door in question
In the UK immobilizers have been compulsory for years (and most of Europe) unless you have something very old (or shit) nobody is stealing it unless they have the keys or something that attaches to the management port and even then it's only for entry (unless they have fucked up real bad)
Even Ford started using the Tribbe system in the early 90s, yeah you can punch the lock out but the immobiliser takes stops the car from moving (as I suffered back in 95 but the car didn't move)
If a car hasn't an alarm then they just spread the door, it's the work of seconds, but the car is still not going anywhere (if it has an immobiliser)
Hence you end up with a house break in and potential torture (as described by another comment)
A fair example of the tools available for car entry are shown here http://shop.multipick-service.com/?language=en and you will find that the electronic options are limited to particular mfgr / mode / and date of manufacture
David Thewlis, Ray Park or Andy Serkis
I went for Serkis but only if he plays him with aspects of Gollum
Matt Berry was missing from the list though, Dr Who with an aspect of Douglas Renyholm would have me watching every week
Only locked in the US?
So do they not thing that shipping the phone overseas and then unlocking it doesn't circumvent their DCMA legislation?
Dear US Verizon subscribers
Welcome to Britain we have had to put up with that shit for years
I think it's the bell that Hitler often had sticking out of his head that gives the game away.
To think that the bell later developed into the Nazi trans dimensional flying machine
Since when does anybody
take pronunciation lessons from Americans ?
From the country who pronounces Colin as of it's part of the intestines.
No doubt they have semicolins too
What next spelling lessons?
MP3 etc are not a great and the format of last resort is .wav
In the case of the spectrum there is .tzx which covers the vast majority of loaders (and if done properly makes for a tiny file) but it can also contain sampled audio blocks if required (such as the bleeps between speedlock sections)
CSW (compressed square wave) also exists for some of the more extreme loaders (mostly for hacked games originating from Eastern Europe)
Last year I ended up writing a tape loader for the Design Design anniversary releases which are included with the iOS version of Spectaculator (about the best spectrum emulator)
I suppose I should finish off my spectrum mastering system which requires no spectrum emulators whatsoever (but playing with GoLang has lost its appeal)
My first experience of a computer was playing this on a Sharp MZ80K in late 81 which one of our lecturers owned. Over the years I tried many other versions but always compared them (poorly) to that articular one
It had truly annoying music and we where told that it could not be removed as the program was written in machine code.
Needless to say after being told that it couldn't be done, sparked my interest in taking other peoples code apart, though sadly this was not one of the targets (as it took me over a year to get my first machine.)
Possibly I should hunt out a sharp emulator and finish the job.
Soon BYOD will mean

Am I really going to go and work for some cheap bastard who will not supply me with the equipment that I need to do my job?
Am I going to buy a laptop and have some monkey install shit on it and then have a corporate security package that prevents me from using MY computer/tablet/phone
The phrase fuck off and die still means something around here

For once I agree with apple
No don't let facebook loose on your phone, the apps are crap enough without letting them loose on the home screen.
New definition of UK address
Seemingly streetmap.co.uk have no clue regarding what the UK actually covers.
Northern Ireland does not exist according to streetmap so in reality they should actually be asking for a GB address and not a UK address (a bit shit or what) and don't whine the OS do cover NI to the material is available.
OK so they use OS maps, lets ask this question does it matter? In reality the answer will probably be no If you say yes please think if you are one of those who wear outdoor gear to wander about the supermarket freezer section and then reconsider your answer.
(Yes I accept that some people who buy hiking gear actually do go hiking, but it's the same proportion who own a 4WD and take the damn thing off road or get the thing dirty)
Google providing links to google maps, well I'm not surprised considering it's essentially a global service as opposed to a provincial service that doesn't even cover the region that it claims to cover.
Personally I liked the Nokia service, but things like street view (so I could view my intended destination if I had never been there before) caused me to make the switch.
As for Bing , our corporate expenses system used Bing to calculate the mileage and it's always wrong (not even a cigar for getting close)
Re: Streetmap is superior
So the 4 icons sandwiched between Get Directions and the Location dialogue box means absolutely to you?
Icon 1 is Car shaped and represents a car
Icon 2 is Bus shaped and represents a bus
Icon 3 is Person shaped and represents a ......
Icon 3 is Bike+Person shaped and represents a boat (oops sorry a cyclist)
Perhaps the mystery (person shaped) icon may be more appropiate for your needs
If it works (why am I saying if ?) then they can quite easily speculate on the financial markets and within a short period buy the entire world
Also if they can only see 5 years into the future then they could view a output of time machine which is placed 5 years in the future thereby having a 10 year view (repeat process ad nauseum)
Alternatively they could look into the future and see how to build a better time machine.
Personally I am glad that I have typed less shite here than the Iranians managed with the original story
Sssh, he is pretending that he has a job that involves networks (it's not real)
Re: Here's How It Should Have Been Done
Sir (I'm making assumptions)
I would suggest that you find a failed graduate student and get him (or her) to read over your submissions before you hit the submit button, your postings may then attract less negativity.
I associate Apace with web servers rather than DNS servers, why are you talking about UDP & port 80?
If you are talking about bots being controlled via port 80 you are commenting on the wrong article, this is pointing out that bots are not necessary for a DDOS
Back to other points
Would an absurd amount traffic hitting your firewall (rejected or otherwise) not cause problems ?
HINT: Yes it will !
Funny enough we see a lot of traffic on UTP and on many other ports and not just on port 80, that's because it's a fucking network cable.
