and help lifting the carpet?
As it is a politician that is giving assurances
"The person will then receive a message from Facebook stating that someone is concerned about them, as well as links to resources such as suicide prevention hotlines."
No sponsored links to local gun smiths or pharmacies then?
"Australians are most likely to bear all on breaches".
Funny that, this being an IT news site.
but I can live with this...
"All the amino acids in living creatures are left-handed, which is the bit that interests astrophysics: why did Earth end up with those molecules and not others?"
Possible answer in following paragraph?
"Chiral molecules have been found in bits of asteroid, and left-handed forms typically dominate"
get on their music exam paper?
to MS victims good luck and
"Although the remnant is approximately circular, there are clear differences in the speed of the blast wave in different regions. The speed in the right and lower right directions is about twice as large as that in the left and the upper left directions."
I think the Universe is cat shaped
"The deal to pull the plug on Gateway - which is most importantly used for self-assessment tax users - has gone to Dell for £819,686."
I do it for a tenner...
"shutdown -h now"
Reach for three pin.... pull
"And will they fix the crappy slow 'checking for updates' problem on Win 7? Probably not..."
Not while MS telemetry servers are hogging bandwidth sucking data from all the users who fell for Windows 10. + those who failed to notice the telemetry updates to Win 7...
ads.bing.com Forbidden Domain
adserver.bing.com Forbidden Domain
win.data.microsoft.com Forbidden Domain
vortex-win.data.microsoft.com Forbidden Domain
settings.data.glbdns2.microsoft.com Forbidden Domain
Is there a comprehensive list of MS domains to block... maybe I should just block their whole IP address space... Still using Win 7 though on one machine. Old habits die hard.
Not exactly cheap?
I wanted to sack them for cheaper local alternatives when responsible for IT purchasing.
I wasn't allowed to because of the corporate contract. (Even local, small scale supplier, alternatives were cheaper than the corporate pricing we were offered).
Not dealt with Misco for 10+ years, perhaps they have changed? Rhetorical question... I don't care.
... nob, I have run that command as root in the root directory. That was in 1993, it's a good learning experience. I always pwd now beforehand.... I think long and hard and never do admin stuff after a glass of wine.
love's Milk Tray can't avert her gaze.
No doubt there is a clause in the T&C's that permit them to change the T&C's at any time.
I have yet to find a T&C that does not have this clause.
If it is cheap or free... You are the product or it is a bait and switch scam.
Apologies to the few genuine, honest and sincere service providers out there.
I have to applaud the fact that Facebook are making so many of these initiatives and software systems open source. Although I fear I might need psychiatric treatment, it actually felt good having something positive to say about Facebook.
Of course it is now up to developers put this open source kit to *good* use......
Yup, I believe everything I read. I now know I am a moron. Thank you for my enlightenment.
No doubt the voting would have been different if some caring soul had died because of this persons lack of foresight. And don't we all put the lives of those that care about our fellow humans at risk with every ill thought out step we take?
I did misread the article and was under the assumption that rescue service personnel were dispatched.
fucking invoice should be sent to the woman.
Respect in as much as she actually realised what a "p****" she was.
Did national news cover this story? Such potential fools should be aware, it is not their own life they risk. But the lives of rescue service personnel too when embarking on such a venture that would have been severely punished by natural selection in the past.
on approach stating... "slow obstruction in road". Alternatively turn it into a traffic island with arrowed bollards either side. Then anyone hitting it would be guilty of driving without due care and attention.
Or am I being too sensible about this?
The depression or the social media?
Which is the cause and which is the effect?
I know viewing the posts of "friends" on social media depresses me. Empty vessels make most noise.
Why am I here making a comment? Do I really have a sense of self importance and a strong desire to be noticed?.. No and yes, errr yes and no, Mmmmm yes and yes. Fuck it, I want to kill you all. How dare you make me think.
Need a confused icon to express how I often feel when faced with such interpretations of reality, I also need social media to tell me what I really want. And advertising to tell me what I need.
Need an insane icon, or a societal product icon so I have an excuse for being me.
for a phone call... POTS has been consistent during my lifetime. Although not "free".
Yup, it's never ending. I am thinking of becoming a labourer of some sorts. My mind might be getting useful cues. But my gut is getting larger sitting on my ass all the time. Less stress too. Anyone want a hole digging, or some shelves stacking?
Yes, you should get out more.
Seriously, similar here, reviewing system logs everyday is a pain that many can't be bothered with. I am paranoid too because there are many people out there way smarter than I am.
I was hammered by a Chinese IP address a couple of days ago for an hour and a half using the Jsky scanner. Loud as fuck... script kiddie. They managed to get a directory listing for one folder. Thanks to that attack I fixed the leak.
And did I say you should get out more :-)
I am not a management or promoter type, I'm a just tenacious designer, coder that sits in the background making other people look good. I am not an outgoing person that is good at selling myself or what I can do, although I don't have Asperger syndrome either, perhaps borderline ;-)
"Is anybody here interested in starting up a website/forum/portal venture for UK freelancers looking for remote teleworking?"
Yes... Not interested in getting rich by selling user data... Want simple T&C's. Happy to charge employers for finding them people they employ. Never want to impose fees on those seeking work. Have a strong set of self imposed ethics and standards. I know a bit about everything IT. 25+ years in IT from 1st line to management.. I currently build websites.
that such a thing makes her happy and feel secure.
Meanwhile, I have reality and rationalism to temper my euphoria.
Say it quick :-)
Was wishing for others... I always run GWX Control after applying *ANY* MS update. Still, have an up vote for mentioning GWX Control panel... I hopes at least some of you are clicking on that donate button :-)
of a Windows update that gives the user the option of switching off all windows 10 upgrades and notifications, world peace and cats cuddling dogs.
"it's allegedly harmful if you have wine on your cornflakes"
Citation, else I am not going to stop.
down vote you because I thought it was sarcasm. You were being serious? Still can't be bothered to down vote you. In addition, I never down vote someone for grammar/spelling alone. I am aware that there are more than those with English as a first language using the Internet. Then there are the dyslexic too.
Me I'm juste a lornmowere, yu kan tel bi teh whey I worlk :-)
vehicles really *need* to communicate with the manufacturer? I can understand the advantages for the manufacturer. However, until the manufacturers can guarantee 100% security and total privacy I feel the risk by far outweighs the benefit to the driver.
My car manages to drive perfectly well without this feature. I really don't see why everything has to be connected to some kind of network, private or public. Should I ever own a "connected" vehicle I will harden it myself... By removing its ability to communicate.
Junk already to me... has Win 10 on it,
The "I am happy and I wish to express my content" icon.. because I will never want nor have one.
the copy/pasters from the coders. I smile.
CSS3 + HTML5 :-) No scripts are required to pretty up a page and validate form content. Send form data to a php page to do the validating. CSS3 does pretty cool animations too. CSS3 menus can also look identical to and perform better than Bootstrap. Yes scripting does have its purposes, I find Ajax particularly useful.
Nice :-) Same here, although it depends how busy I am. Or mischievous I am, I sometimes let them connect to a VM I used to use for malware analysis. They never seem to notice all the diagnostic/file analysis tool shortcuts on the desktop. They just want to get me to a Paypal gateway as quickly as possible. I am going deaf too ;-) so they have to repeat themselves 2-3 times.
Yup first thing I do... Un-install all the manufacturers software. And all the trial version software. I visit the device vendor site for updates.
Still loving my NP900X4C.... Awesome bit of kit. Boots into Mint desktop in 10-15 seconds. Windows 7 takes an awful lot longer
"Police experts state that there are as many as 7 million online frauds a year and 3 million other online crimes. Very many of these go unreported,"
I am pretty sure that trees do indeed fall over in woodland and actually make a noise when no one is around to hear. However, citing figures for unreported crime requires the services of
a psychic someone with an agenda and an imagination.
A crime is a crime regardless of method/means... fraud is fraud, libel is libel, unauthorised access is trespass/breaking entering. etc., etc.
on your website... Has interesting, relevant and useful content ever entered into your tiny algorithms?
I understand AC.... But one gets what one pays for. And if one gets better than one pays for, they soon don't give a shit for being pissed all over/ignored.
I am to busy opening this invoice for something I haven't bought from a company I have never heard of to pass a sensible and serious comment.
I up voted you, because you are indeed very right. And wrote that which I hadn't even thought about. Much respect. What you said is nothing to be AC about... Unless you are in a position which enforces such arcane rule sets.
Because it was a leap year?
Jokingly I asked my partner if there was an international men's day. She said yes 365 of them.
If any of the decision makers are on, have friends and/or relatives on the board of directors of, or are shareholders in Atos.
You forgot the storyline... Although in 95%+ of game releases there is not an engaging one. Identifying with and understanding, hence empathising with game characters adds to the immersion. And is this not why we play games? Immersion and suspension of the mundane?
Game devs develop using the Vulcan API. They release Win32/64 and Linux versions. And they ignore UWA.
Never had confidence in MS to begin with, No problem here.
