"could have an impact on voting intentions on the day and is therefore a breach of electoral law"
So party political broadcasts and debates should be banned too?
That aside, I agree with Bo! El Reg should start a "Technocracy"!
All decisions could be voted for online by the people; finally, a true democracy!
Nokia may be wrong
and mobile camera phones will never be as good as DSLRs, but it's crazy to call camera phones "idiotic". The skill and effort it must have taken to fit a 5 megapixel camera inside something slimmer than my finger is just staggering.
Are you guys on crack?
XOR isn't inherently "secure" or "insecure".

Stop hating on the XOR!

You're only going to get a few thousand people installing your app, and they are not all going to do it within a few seconds of each other. Your browser is liable to cache most things this 'malicious' app forces your browser to retrieve. And most websites can handle serving a few thousand pictures over the course of a week perhaps. In fact I'd go so far as to say that's what they were designed to do.

"Using the HTTP Post method of encoding a database query would have meant that a requested page comes with a URL that looks like gibberish, effectively eliminating the problem of URL manipulation"
errrr... did this line come out of a gibberish generator? This means nothing to me. Should it?
Anyone care to explain?
