Thankyou. I will use that.
So what is the collective noun for collective nouns?
Any news on the journo who registered his cat?
Analysis of internet dating sites in the past has indicated that male profiles looking for attachments are far more successful than male profiles looking for no strings sex. Ashley Madison based their entire business model on the latter, so it didn't work out.
Not at all, it's a reference to Newsnight.
This confirms the reality-warping power that is Roger Irrelevant.
Not as neo as you think but it works.
If they followed my advice, the popup would simply say "This password is too obvious, please try again." - rather like if you chose a dictionary word.
But like I say I don't know what they did.
She dresses like she's gearing up for her next sexual harassment compensation claim in the hope that nobody will dare look at her too intently.
This is why you need mixed security staff.
"For example, a 1982 paper warned that Ebola was present in Western Africa when everyone assumed it wasn't. This information went unknown to Liberian doctors because they couldn't afford to pay the $32 reading fee -- that's half their weekly salary"
Yup, that sounds like a valid reason to limit what information can be paywalled.
Most paid email services now allow you a few aliases that you can delete when done with.
Misogynist has joined Fascist and Commie as meaning someone I disagree with.
Still a decent chance of a tasing, although I agree that the big complaint should be about diverting police resources.
I don't think that all the schoolchildren who get bullied over this did anything to deserve it.
Most of the people searching this database will be schoolkids checking out their peers' parents.
So, now the government is making more children watch decapitation scenes. Great job, idiots.
The Ethiopian government were unsubtle in their use of Hacking Team software, which the group feared would result in security professionals working out their secrets.
That's why they ended the relationship. It risked their other revenue streams if their software got discovered and vulnerabilities patched.
So as long as they practice wilful ignorance they're in the clear.
The Register contacted NHS England regarding the study, and a spokesperson told us "There has been a change in the law so that patient information can only ever be used if it will benefit health and care.
Could anyone tell me which change in the law they're talking about? I'm quite interested.
You can buy ostrich burgers on Lincoln market. They're yummy enough to justify selling their leather to nobs to fasten their apple watches with.
No, Jimmy Saville used corrupt officials and a lack of personal security on the part of his victims.
Speaking of which...
Fun fact: Columbo's most famous quirk was created by the limits of a typewriter. The people typing up the script forgot to include two lines of dialogue, so they squeezed it in at the end of the scene with the justification that he'd simply forgotten to ask that question.
Last orders then, please.
And for once I actually do get to point out that it's lunchtime.
That's what "she" said.
and even then Babylon 5 required resupplying.
But the biggest question is still unanswered. What time is lunch on the ISS? Has it happenned yet?
Makes perfect sense. The price that maximises profit in Eastern Europe is lower than the price that maximises profit in Western Europe. If they can discriminate then they will.
It's the same principle as student discounts. Students have less money, but there's still a profit to be made, but not if you lower all your prices to levels that students will pay. So keep your prices high and offer a specific student discount.
It's less painful than most political debates.
Good plan, but you know the press will be endlessly implying that the parenting commissioner is a paedo, right? That's what they do.
The problem is that we mostly still elect people who had their sexual awakening in the days when <span class="strike">casual sex</span> free love was going to save the world and were married before the memo came out that actually careless sex can kill so everyone is better off if you masturbate instead when between relationships.
So now they don't understand why people aren't banging their neighbors as a way of saying hello and are trying to wind back the clock to pre-AIDS days by forcing us to do it.
Politicos - if you want us to behave like AIDS isn't a thing then find a damn cure! You've cut enough to fund the thing.
I think there's a problem with the French greeting. Shame we didn't have twitter back then, they'd have been all over it in seconds.
I for one welcome artificial snoo snoo if it does all that too.
It seems like a lot of people are now theorising that this will ultimately offer a whole new vector into hacking people's computers since once you can spoof an update everybody will automatically install it.
I'm sure I type my password very differently when standing up to the right of the keyboard, for example.
I have been asking for duress codes for a long time.
There used to be an urban legend that entering your ATM PIN backward would alert the authorities and still work. Why isn't this true?
There was this one called Gator that I remember...
"What do you say to dem like conspiracy theorists who say that, like, the moon does not exist?"
-- Ali G, interviewing Buzz Aldrin
Someone should ask him his opinion of his appearance on Epic Rap Battles of History.
"Given that the universe is infinite, and given that God is infinite, how about a muffin?"
If you intend to target someone in meatspace, ruining their sleep can help ensure they're more vulnerable than normal. Connecting radios, tvs, kettles, even the toilet to the net can allow hackers to have a significant impact on how well people can sleep.
Countdown to Government stooges realising they can now associate every privacy group with him...
That's actually a very good point. Someone needs to do a study where the only difference is whether a male or female voice filter is in place, and the person speaking must not know which is which. Only then are we actually comparing like with like.
What difference did they notice going the other way? How do the people who beat them respond to beating them?
It's a site with victims. Some of them are hackers.
400GB being downloaded and nobody noticing seems a lot less likely than someone plugging in a usb drive under the desk and taking it out that way.
So no bananas or potatoes then?
I expect like the other equivalents it will be cheaper than decent meat. Cheap meat or fake meat is hardly a choice you need to make.
