People who are disenfranchised will create their own legal solutions. And there is no getting them back. What eventually happens is that prisons have to swell to accommodate them but sooner or later people just get used to being outlaws. Easier to live with now that Australia has its' version of a dem...oh...wait

Of course they can!
All the PO need do is ensure the subbies are hauled into court in front of a rotating series of judges and do them one at a time over a period of years. That'll teach the feckers! Unless they botch the ermmm.... paperwork...
This is the MO for the PO from the get go.
I remember talking to a devoutly religious man about his nervous breakdown. He said it was pressure from work. He felt morally obligated to count all the money he was sending out to the sub-post offices for HMG. But the time allowance never allowed for this. So his arse was on the line and his head in a vice. Not exactly the way he described it.
Eventually he caved in and did what I presumed all the happy chappies were doing and just guessing the amounts and telling lies in his book-keeping. He said it made his problems go away and once he got his head around the permissions involved for abject dishonesty he stopped suffering.
I wondered how it worked at the other end of the line. I still do... or did, until this article. Confusus he sed perversa quadam molasses foetida.
But ask how much the absent attendees got paid for not going, instead.

So far nobody retaliates against the government because it is a pointless occupation. And anyway most of us are not totally psychotic. But there are some people, notably Americans, who are not only psychotic but trigger happy too.
Once it becomes public knowledge how the FBI, for example, behaves with, for example, Mafia families and that they quite often screw up like this as though on purpose, expectations and behaviour patterns will change. And that will be interesting.

The NSA/CIA/FBI has worked out that with enough fried onions and mustard, people would swallow anything.

Thank you so much Mr Nsaovitch. You have put my heart at rest at last.

You are assuming that the data you thought you had backed up did actually make it to you large, brand new USB 3 storage medium. I consider my new toy vapour ware until I have the time to check out 50-odd GB of data.
The problem is I am too frightened too look.

I'm still wondering what sort of an orphanage allowed Cyril Smith to wonder around with his cock up a little boy's bum until he bumped into an unnamed senior police officer coming the other way with his cock up another little boy's arse and nobody in that 5 eyes thing or Ropey Murdoch's stable of rags caught on.
I can't believe that all the money spent by GCHQ/NSA etetera etcetera is just there to help hide petty peckerdildoes. But what else could it be designed for?
I use Linux and can't find things online due to Google's shaped search turning their engine into a circle jek or as we old Brits used to say a load of wank.
Duck duck go castrates Google but all I get is a load of eunuchy nocky gnochi.
Whilst it might help put an end to the endless stream of 60 year old whores on offer, it circumvents my efforts to find news I haven't read weeks ago and hands me back to google for its used condoms when I am trying to research earth science stuff.
I really don't like the clunky new interface the Register has these days. I don't like the slow loading and I don't like that drop down box that they must have leased from Windows ME
I think I will take a look at Wired or one of the other sites. Pity. I remember when this was a UK based magazine.
Ah well cet la progresse.
Now give me 100 upvotes because that is what this post really needs
I am still wondering what Job's did to get the reputation. I don't want to bother reading the book if a local library ever gets a copy but I wouldn't mind reading some facts. (Not that I am nosey or anything, I just want to know.)
You are dissing the man who did more to aid Adolf Hitler than his highest ranking General, Admiral or Air Marshal (until the USAnians stepped in to close him down.) You'll be telling us that Blighty knew all about the WMD from all that antiterrrrrrst phone tapping, next.
You looking to star in a remake of the Man in a Suitcase, or what?

Not picking on anyone in particular but it is rather interesting that some think he has saved people from diseases when he made millions out of operating systems that relied on third party freeware antiviral medication. If he couldn't get his OSs to function healthily, why should anyone believe he can do what every third world US minion has failed to dictate?

It made me think they still hadn't done it at the time of writing, which means that some generous soul still has time to nip in and round up a few passwords with the idea of selling them off for the 40,000 to pay for the lad's seek and ye shall fined

It won't be all that long, I am sure, before the average computer user decides to learn how to make a modem/router/thingumy out of old parts. If I had a five year old I would make learning how to do that his first job if he ever wants pocket money.
> not a scientific assessment of what it took to beat a warship including not fighting back, slowly travelling in a straight line, and didn't take counter-measures.
But would have been assaulted with much smaller bombs. And your point is?
Mitchell realised that the limiting factor in the experiment was how much a plane can carry and how far it has to go. Everything else is just a matter of practice and experience -for both sides. The Doolittle raid might have accomplished everything he suggested, had the top brass learned anything from Pearl Harbour. But they never did!
The most incredible lesson from WW2 is that top brass NEVER expect the unexpected. Military training is just not geared for people who have insight.
The British didn't have a decent aircraft carrier in W2. Not for those newfangled monoplanes. The carrying capacity still remained with biplanes, not just because the Hurricane needed a half mile long airstrip until some numbnuts realised the Merlin could power three blades.
At sea, aircraft warfare is all about carrying capacity, the Spitfire never ever became a serious gun deck and the Hurricane remained a short range interceptor until the day it retired. The Whirlwind might have made a viable alternative but it only just made it off the drawing board before that too suffered the fate of having half wits in management.
Good old British blimps. They won the war, don't y'know. Made one of the blighters Prime Minister! No good at war or politics mind you, but the Yanks loved him, what?
Kicked him out soon as we realised what he done, -too late by then of course. Still, never mind, eh? What?
> Americans didn't have any canvas biplanes so their fleet was safe.
They did have canvas torpedoes so the Japanese fleets were safe too.
The RN not the RAF taught the Japanese in WW2 it was also the RN who set up Top Gun after the USN realised their Aircraft Carriers were being run by clockworknobrains.
I think the main problem is that the bank is out of sorts with the idea its directors are silly enough to put the money for the bribes in the same bank. And then let the new data processors loose on it.
It does sound a tad silly.
Let's hope they replace them with people who have a clue about IT.
Got a little taste of what happened to Muhammed Ali when he said that America landed on him and his people. Now it is going for the white guys as well as the brown ones. Equality finally gets to America.

No. Someone has thought of the children. I have heard that they are hoping to sign up Jimmy Harris to run it all for them. Less power to the tomorrow people.
> I haven't read Raising Steam because I was afraid it wouldn't be as good as the earlier books, so there is that to look forward to.
It was as good as you could hope for. The ones to watch out for are the evangelical books of lists some jackjean evolutionists he wrote with foist on his faithful flock.
> Here's a thought; Put aside your partisan obsessions for just one moment while the rest of us mark the passing of an exceptional human being.
Here is another thought. We have at least one death we can all really look forward to.
Seriously, yesterday I was contemplating that arse of a book he wrote last and reminded of two even worse ones that he jointly wrote with another loser. At least he won't tarnish any further than that. Thinking that at least there are some scumbags I will enjoy news of the nomoreness of is a balm for a sad day.
Sad to say that his last books showed how badly Altzheimer's can maul you. Obviously the people he wrote with shouldered most of those books, I hope to god his daughter doesn't do worse:
"Rhianna's father chose Rhianna to be the 'custodian' of the Discworld before he died. Rhianna has clarified that she will 'hold the reins' of the Discworld, rather than actively participate in the series, and that she will most likely not be writing any 'new' Discworld novels."
I would rather them mustruming on the shelves of the great unseen than that.
...deserve thumbs ups, especially when asked on mobile devices.
I used to write on H2G2 when it was owned by the BBC. I soon grew out of that but Wikipedia is not the answer. Them damn Yankees believe in democracy and that as any Royalist knows mutually exclusively excludes meritocracy. If us British were to put an ape in high office we would at least choose one competent enough to make it as a librarian. (And it wouldn't reign bananas!)
For being so bloody clever you can discern a non scientist from never having met a person before. If that isn't worth an up-vote on the Internet, nothing is. OK, so nothing is. (But that isn't going to stop me.)
> Had he gone around to their house with a couple of pals carrying baseball bats that would have been out of proportion.
I don't think so. The way that some people respond to trolls is to allow them free rein. The result of that is a crippled internet where only lice live. A short pithy question is about all that most dullards need to wake them up or rattle their cages, whatever. But the sort of thing going on here was too far over the top for gentle, laid back argument and electronic reasoning.
In this case, gentlemanly conduct requires the administration of discipline.
> Most of these people would never, ever utter these kinds of comments to their victims' faces.
But some would?
That's what I think too.
> You're right, maybe we should also keep them in doors, they could wear a big long cloak and some sort of veil thing when they are escorted out to stop them from tempting the rest of us.
I actually believe that is why they behave like that and I have a lot of respect of the behaviour of these guys. It is weird isn't it?
If you cast your mind back to the days when electronic eavesdropping first became viable, it wasn't the Marconis or the Capones that stood to lose, it was City Hall.
Marconi wanted everyone to have facilities that could be spied on.
Capone used runners just like he does today. He don a use a de telephone.
If you think Comcast and AT&T want to give the US people free speech you don't have the faintest idea how badly wrong things are going to get. It will be 6G before the NSA is ready to dole out the next slice. When they are capable of dealing with greater throughput of information, things might be allowed to improve.
Nothing is going to change until then.
The Internet represents the greatest threat to the way governments hoodwink us all. Comcast and the NSA are just good examples of why and how. Take for example a free white state with a small, easily controlled citizenry, whose government has had the radio communications of its far flung natives taped for decades:
>Here in Australia, we enjoy real 4G speeds regardless of network in most areas
Australia is the Russia of the western world. I bet the Sorks have got good comms. too. (And the Norks are working on the Capone version.)
I apologise... But how old are the secret sauces?
A few days before the sell by date is usually a good time to swallow stuff quickly and cheaply. It's just that I couldn't read any small print or even see the label. (And yes, I know that if I have to ask...)
> They will do anything to avoid metric won't they.
In the US Navy?
You have no idea how superior nautical miles are to the French equivalent.
I don't know if you are joking but I have had a Blog blog for several years and never realised they were being used for stuff like that.
One born every minute. Does the rest of my life finally get started now?

There, fixed you advert for you Reg. Carrion.
Certain people have been too busy spying on us to think about doing their jobs until now?
Generally when people don't like a law it is because it is unjust. In the absence of an unjust law people tend to behave. If you give people a reason to agitate for change they will eventually gt what the mass demand becomes.
That is the nature of politics. A company that doesn't understand customer relations tends to go out of business long before any of that sort of thing happens. Less frequently, isolated incidents occur. Best not to upset too many people and let that happen. In most European countries and all but 2 North American ones, the justice system works fairly well.
When it doesn't, you just keep off their grass.
