Would you like to try a Dime Bar?
Spooks want to hand all your data over to Al Quaeda the first time one of their own defects.
If I were the suspicious sort (spoiler: I am) I would wonder if it was really the IT Manager each time. Happenning twice at the same location does seem like the connection is something to do with the location. Perhaps it's not that they treat their IT Managers badly enough for them both to take identical revenge, but rather that someone else on the staff is stealing their stuff and blaming recently fired personnel.
You don't think it's more a case of wanting an excuse to see them closer?
This message brought to you by the society of people with massive noggins.
When Yahoo offered a different search engine to the other two, I visited search.yahoo.com semi-regularly when looking for different results.
When they returned Bing's results, I just used Bing.
I am typing this on a proper clicky keyboard that is probably older than I am. From the days before AT became standard and long before it was re-ditched for PS/2.
I will change my personal keyboard when I get my modded keyboard finished. I am happy to report I seem to have finished all of the hacksawing. What I really need now is to get on and bag the arduino kit for the next stage...
.MD would be distinctly better but is sadly already taken by Moldova.
(My doctorate is in how many things they let you do doctorates in these days)
Everyone and everything will come to an end eventually, and the oldest, kindest member of the Discworld cast will be there for them.
Needs a mouse lock button and needs to be easily collapsible/ decollapsible. Then I'll buy.
Also magnets are evil. have a gripper option, I'll sacrifice a couple of millimeters of screen size to have it hold on properly.
Until you come to labelling them wrongly.
$82K will make almost no impact whatsoever on the $400M budget of Doctors Without Borders, but I don't think that anyone will call the few extra survivors a wasted effort.
It does seem odd that the BOFH would be associated with a coffee mug that is taller than it is wide.
I'm just going to label this as a victory for privacy campaigners and move on, ta.
I wouldn't agree with you there, the campaigns against revenge porn have pretty well cemented the fact that the majority see privacy as an unquestionable right. The question is where does the line get drawn?
Well wouldn't you know it? He died trying.*

The problem of trust is already a problem for far more invasive medical procedures and men go through these anyway, because unwanted pregnancies are that bad.
I'm not the only one that finds this entire thing depressing, am I?
Posh sorts will no doubt gravitate to the Chilli Chutney recipe on Jamie Oliver's website that comes up early in a web search.
Facial recognition door locks are a BAD idea. Pretty soon someone will be let into the wrong room and the woman who they wake up will sue the hotelier for 70 squintillion in distress, half of which will go to her accomplice once his 3 month sentence for admitting being drunk and disorderly is over.
Or does the law cover using surveillance to stop canadians walking on the grass?
It sounds like Pee Engine, which is Bill Gates' next project.
99% of jobs have been rendered obsolete by technology already. Where is our 1% employment rate?
Assuming the PM's version is remotely true, the caller's first mistake was not knowing what time it was in Blighty. This fact was revealed in the first few seconds of the call.
Unless one of them is an incarnation.
It's only illegal to take photos.
BT has Captain as a choice for your phone bill, but not any other rank.
If we want to blame a politician who gave us somebody else when we voted for them, we can bring this back to Tony. He insisted, repeatedly, that the warnings that "vote Blair get Brown" were entirely unfounded because there was no chance he would step down before the following election.
Five minutes in, he's gone and we've got Brown and things rapidly go so badly to shit that we vote in GlaDoS to stop Brown. Worried that GlaDoS might flood the country with neurotoxin we vote in a coalition, effectively attaching a "morality core" to stop GlaDoS from flooding the country with neurotoxin.
Now, with an election looming, GlaDoS is reminding us that, if voted in without a morality core after the election, GlaDoS is still going to flood the country with neurotoxin. So let's not do that, mmkay?
Cyberstreetwise encourages widespread use of encryption, after all.
Except that now they're listening to the other side and Labour are adding a bit of B to attract former tories while the Conservatives are adding a bit of A to attract disaffected Labour voters.
Meanwhile, experts wonder why the Labour+Conservative share of the vote is at an all-time low.
It's pretty much a given that he's out. The question is which omnicidal moron we install in his place.
Yes, it does have to be an omnicidal moron I'm afraid. Whoops, Apocalypse was a documentary.
Only slightly less insane than expecting ISPs to log all internet activity and keep the logs for at least a year. What idiot would suggest that. Theresa May wasn't it?
No, I'm pretty sure you're referring to the Data Retention Directive, which was Brown's lot.
Hard to tell them apart these days, innit?
The controversy of a few years back when a republican supported Gentrification only to discover that it didn't mean what he thought it means (it means improving an area by getting rid of the riff-raff, not by improving the area) is a perfect example of why using obscure words isn't helpful.
When someone advocates evil in the name of a god, I always remember someone who committed an act of evil in the name of Steffi Graf.
Do you think she was glad to have fans who stab her rivals? It makes the caricature of Mohammed bemoaning his followers, or the Spitting Image sketches of Jehovah being exasperated by his own followers, seem all that more real.
They're supposed to be rolling out some serious manifarto promises that will make them sound like a serious party any time now. Best guess they've scrubbed all the silly stuff off their website and found there's nothing left.
"It's my estimation that every man ever had a statue made of him was one kind of son of a bitch or another."
Not to us either. All the bloody same.
Didn't stop Mellor.
Yes, grammar obsessives, "Don't" is one word.
I never thought a reg staffer had lived a sheltered life before this moment.
The BBC notes that Apollo 11 left a bag of vomit behind, so someone's stomach cells are already up there.
Post-it notes are your friend.
RON... RON... there must be a way to make what these people stand for spell S-H-I-T.
I would love to see photos taken by Philae during the next orbit of the comet, as a precursor to a mission to seed comets with their own system-wide science gubbins.
They were camped near Bayji.
They were planting bombs at Bayji.
I've been finding it impossible to get a plain english answer to the simple question. Has someone died to a British robofighter yet?
95% of historical jobs were eliminated by advances in technology. We don't have 95% unemployment, we have boybands and other tat instead.
All this study proves is that things in the future will be lamer.
Am I the only person for whom java's autoupdate has been borked for a while now? I just use it to alert me to new updates that I download manually, for the rare website that I actually allow to run things in java.
Bandwidth gets significantly cheaper year on year, but taxes only go up.
Anyone remember when caps tended to be 1 gigabyte per month?
