Ia! Ia! Cthulhu farting!
Or whater is it.
Read the study
There's evidence right there in the paper where non-gamers were randomly put to work either playing shooters or doing other things and the ones playing shooters later tested better for STEM skills.
If it did declare it has no plans to haul him into its territory...
... then nobody would believe them.
Just saying, It would be like Gordon Brown declaring that none of the bailout money would be used to pay bankers' bonuses.
Surprisingly good study
What it says is that if you play a game which rewards you for quickly identifying what you're looking at, you get better at identifying what you're looking at, and that if you play violent games then real-world violence can make you want to click instead of punch, which can make you less effective at hurting people which is a trait we need more of.
However, it loses several points for arguing that chocolate coated broccoli is not yummy.
If it's about the money
Date her lawyer, but be sure not to wind up divorcing them.
How long did he do it?
You get pretty footsore in the first couple of weeks, longer if you're dumb and don't get some good shoes for the job.
The real pisstake is the breaks, which can be something like 20 minutes for lunch with 10 of them taken up by going through security to get to somewhere you're allowed to keep food.
And how do they know about these vulnerabilities?
Because they put them there?
My mobile turned itself on in my luggage one time and received texts welcoming it to russian and pacific networks for the first time. The plane didn't crash and I don't believe this can be a rare occurrence.
Re: Only 11 actors?
The Cushing film itself exists in the Who EU, explained as having been inspired by the Doctor.
But 11 actors is still wrong. Richard Hurndall played the Doctor in the TV continuity for example.
Why does it have to be reusable?
Let it print on small pieces of paper that are put together like a jigsaw and define them as consumables. Probably ten elite persons have these things so it's not going to destroy the planet by itself. If you're one of these deviants who believe that paper is a finite resource then just build a pulping and bleaching station to reuse the paper and don't tell me you believe that nonsense about bleach killing fish.
The concern is that individuals within the NSA pass your private info along to organised crime and there is no way to catch them because they're working for the NSA.
Or do you believe nobody working for the NSA ever gave data to someone they weren't authorised to?
So wait, are there politicians that the Reg hasn't insulted still?
Re: As an English Taxpayer
Cite numbers, please.
This 8th claim keeps coming up unsupported. By GDP using IMF stats the correct value is 18th. Have you actually got a citation which says this is anything but a typo?
I agree. Either you do want to attack someone or you do not. If you do then threats are a waste of time and reduce your effectiveness, if you don't then threats make it less likely you'll be able to avoid it.
Re: He doesn't get it...
Indeed, the threat is not that he can find out who has visited the Rape Crisis UK website, it's that he's left a list of visitors to the Rape Crisis UK website where malefactors can find it.
I don't believe our national security justifies giving organised crime access to lists of rape victims. Maybe I'm in the minority, I don't know.
There are a few other key paragraphs which do make the document seem very threatening. Personally I think this is because of excessive copypasta and no proofreading rather than an actual intent to intimidate, but that's what proofreading is for.
We have identified the following domain(s) that we say are facilitating online crime.
Replacing say with "suspect" or even "believe" would be a big improvement.
PIPCU has criminal and civil powers in UK law to seize money, belongings and any property in
connection with these offences.
This one makes it pretty clear that if EasyDNS don't comply, the police will take their stuff and keep it for as long as they can. Again, I don't think they mean to come across as threatening, but rewording this stuff could do a lot in getting people to cooperate instead of putting them on the defensive.
You should put stickers on both wings showing Sinead O'Connor's face, possibly with speech bubbles about being concerned that you're in space.
Re: Lies, damned lies . . .
There's a great article from O'Reilly about similar things from 2006. Choice snippet:
And overall, as a book publisher who also makes many of our books available in electronic form, we rate the piracy problem as somewhere below shoplifting as a tax on our revenues. Consistent with my observation that obscurity is a greater danger than piracy, shoplifting of a single copy can lead to lost sales of many more. If a bookstore has only one copy of your book, or a music store one copy of your CD, a shoplifted copy essentially makes it disappear from the next potential buyer's field of possibility. Because the store's inventory control system says the product hasn't been sold, it may not be reordered for weeks or months, perhaps not at all.
I'm sure he would like women to collect his naked selfies and masturbate over them.
The golden rule doesn't usually work on sexual matters.
The US department of Justice is still running?
Has anyone told the White House?
Because childish poetry is always more acceptable
just ask any man from Nantucket.
Re: Violets are violet
So is the sky but convention says that we ignore physics and go with poetical niceties.
(The sky looks blue because it floods the blue cones in your eyes)
Re: Beware cheap cables?
It occurs to me that I have never actually tried plugging my USB pet rock into a USB port to see if anything happens like that.
Bought from Thinkgeek.
Sounds to me like he was worried about having brought a child into a non-child-friendly environment and chose instead to paint his concerns as some good old offence by proxy instead of admitting that maybe he should make sure something is child-safe before bringing a child into it.
That said the organisers ought to have done the same before allowing a child to come in. Someone must have known that there would be tit jokes and cock jokes in the presentation.
Enough jokes about the name
I will however note his name and age and hypothesise that he's an old soviet having trouble adapting to a free country.
Just until more information becomes available.
Does this mean £5/week stays?
I have hated the £5/week limit on earnings on the dole since Major's day, and as an indication, you could get 10 liters of petrol for it back then. I supported Universal Credit primarily because it killed that limit, which needed to die, and replaced it with a percentage.
I shall be mightily irked if the £5/week limit emerges from its shallow grave.
There's a game people play online. Find a vocal anti-gay campaigner, note their name, then find them again in a couple of years and see whether they've been caught paying a rent boy to carry their bags up to their hotel room.
The Gubmit's attitude to porn is the same as these people's attitude toward homosexuality, which inevitably means they're trying to hide that they secretly like it a great deal and are embarrassed by it.
Problem with your numbers
The human genome can feasibly be stored in as little as 1.5GB of data. Given that the person-to-person DNA variance is about 0.1 percent, then, the unique Steve Ballmer can be represented by around 1.53600 megabytes. Therefore, the Tencent cloud could store an impressive 6,708, 739 copies of Ballmer's DNA profile.
All of which relies on the assumption that Ballmer is entirely human.
Re: My attempt at a poor analogy
Actually, I reckon it's like wanting to shut down the Red Lion in Woking (I don't know why Woking keep invading my analogies) and instead sticking your head in a lion's mouth.
Daft and ultimately counterproductive, but fun to watch from a safe distance.
Re: Enabling identity theft
Good point actually. This will work until the first site breach allows someone to steal the documents used to prove your identity and use it to set up accounts as you.
Set up your own social network, enforce a real name and address policy, and people will flock to it for the additional safety they get over networks such as twitter, which will quite obviously go bust because they don't offer the same level of safety as bigbrotherbook.
No, this is like getting a court order against Steve down the pub near Woking, and locking up everyone you find in a pub near Woking.
In fairness, the rape victim isn't killed for being raped so much as for being left blind, deaf, mute, limbless and generally unable to live any kind of life.
The really nasty bit is that the right to do these things to her was the payoff that Titus' enemy gave to her own sons for their help kidnapping her in the first place. Shakespeare had a bit of a Tarantino period.
The actual North? You mean places like Harrogate?
Re: Computational Power
Naah, you'd need Playmobil for that.
Re: Does legal porn actually exist?
Most porn is legal in the UK. Getting confirmation about the legal status of an individual piece of pornography is far more complicated, however.
More websites requiring your email then...
Re: Solution is Easy
And furniture store sites too, presumably?
Re: 99 of those visits turn out to be nothing
99% of visits turn out to be nothing
99% of visits that don't turn out to be nothing turn out to be insignificant.
99% of visits that are more than insignificant turn out to be households with criminal proceedings already underway.
The rest get fitted up because they're bored by now.
Funny thing is that in my mind Bronny looks rather like Charlotte Church.
Appropriate enough that the first related image in the Charlotte Church link is a newspaper frontpage of her half out of her bikini top, then another Sun image of her teetering precariously in a different bikini top. I guess that you really do get the media you deserve.
Re: Isn't there an IP issue here?
She might start by requiring people identify to comment on her blog, or at least allowing them to, and by not including her raw email address on the front page of her blog as the primary means of contacting her.
Re: Isn't there an IP issue here?
They can also require people login to post comments and select which login services to allow.
Does anyone have a timeline of exactly when this shitstorm stirred up?
I just had a thought and looked up school holidays. From my reckoning there's a correlation here...
Re: I wonder what these people get from threatening people
I've known quite a few forums that actively block email addresses that can be disposable. It will annoy a few people if twitter adopts this policy but it will solve the problem by providing a paper trail.
