Aren't they supposed to be using PDW rather than SQL Server?
If I remember rightly he was A head of IT not THE head of IT at HBOS.
That was his point. He was playing the consumer champion via a technical limitation that is easily rectified. It is just posturing.
Dropbox and others use SHA for the of same purpose and manage fine. The files aren't deleted if they match a banned hash but simply can't be shared. See the Dropbox article the other day.
As to your example, that's the flaw in the Megavideo model which means that content owners would never consider it as a distribution platform. Kimble is playing it as a personal storage platform but monetising it as a distribution platform. If it really was a personal storage platform then they could have taken the measures that Dropbox et al do. But they didn't want to because they would have lost users. Not all users wanted to stream copyrighted content admittedly but many did. Steps are available to reduce copyright violations as others already do but Mega chose not to take them.
Down vote away. Those are simply the facts about that part of the case. I'm saying nothing about the rest of it.
If Kimble was so worried that using MD5 hashes to identify illegal files would have falsely alerted to legal files then why didn't he just change to use a better hash like SHA? It's not rocket science.
Reminds me of when I had a gas bill from BG many years ago that was ridiculous. I persuaded endless bods on the phone that I didn't owe it but still the demand letters and bailiff threats came.
I'm sure they're much better now though.
Isn't 4.0.4. ICS rather than Jelly Bean?
Re: Luxury item
Organic claims to be both healthier and better for the environment without proving either. Some light reading. Plenty more out there:
I suspect, although noone has absolute proof, that it all rather depends on the individual application of organic or non-organic farming.
Flavour's a different matter. Personal choice init.
It may have the disadvantage of being proprietary but the Lightning connector is so much better than micro USB. Hopefully this has copied all the good bits.
Re: Weird combination at best
Most companies don't write all their own software so even if they like the MS stack they may buy a product which requires Oracle. Happens all the time.
iPhone 4 still isn't entry-level at £200. You can get a vastly superior Moto G for £100. Also the ship may have sailed on iOS if the vast majority of phones already ship with the Google walled-garden.
(Not an anti-Apple rant. I have a 5S as well as a Moto G and enjoy both.)
I shouldn't need to know
...but I need to know.
Was it a boy or girl doggie? Was he the active partner? Had the dog been trained with treats? Did he use protection?
I shouldn't need to know. But I do.
Terminator Seeds scary stuff or just a myth?
Re: Non-GM blight resistant spuds already available
Well we'll see which methods work best in the coming years. What's the harm in other options?
Re: Thin clients?
I suppose you also get the laptop format and can pay consumer prices for cheap laptops.
Presumably the reason to choose Chrome workstations over Wyse terminals would be the promise that over time you'd hope some apps would be ported to web apps or SaaS therefore meaning you wouldn't have as much need for virtualised app servers? Otherwise there wouldn't be a lot of difference.
What type of star is it?
Presumably some kind of red dwarf judging by the age?
I can't see it going down too well with most IT Security teams. Assuming the Windows bit goes on your corporate network, the Android bit probably won't be allowed and will be relegated to the public network. Yet they are connected and share files? I can see Security minds boggling right now.
How can I post that the resolution is too low unless you tell me it?
Re: No psychics either
That's kinda the point. You can see how well they did at predicting last year.
(The answer is BADLY if you can't be arsed to look.)
Re: No psychics either
Here's what psychics predicted for 2013:
No psychics either
Unless they are keeping their real predictions off the interwebz cos of spooky reasons...
Is there a version with vPro?
Re: Has potential ...
Peppermint 4 vote. Can't see any reason it wouldn't work.
Mandatory comment on the resolution
It's too low sorry.
Just a note of caution
I know I'll get down voted for this because no one ever reads comments on this subjects and just votes against the DoJ and RIAA... buuuuut, I think some of you really dont understand how Mega operated. It was designed to make money from the distribution of copyrighted material. That's the only way most people would pay for the service. Megavideo could not have made people pay unless there was something they wanted behind the link sites it enabled. And yes, I do understand that YouTube has done ok from a similar thing.
Make all the points about this case you want EXCEPT trying to claim that copyright infringement was just an incidental misuse of the service. Honestly. My 5 year old tells better fibs :)
+1 for Giffgaff
Been using mine for endless conference calls on 0800 and 0808 for years. Hasn't cost me a penny.
Re: Big Trak
Undoubtably. Also, didn't everyone try to find the trailer as displayed on the cover? Everyone in my school thought it existed and one or two (lying shits) claimed to have found it.
Much like the raft to the island on Jet Set Willy.
Seriously, did you actually try it?
Never mind the SSB gimmicks. It's a quite attractive, extremely quick Linux distribution that is very well suited to netbooks. Much better than standard Ubuntu. Nothing worth commenting on in that?
There's even special combination download packs like the office productivity one.
Re: £99 From Tesco .....
Re: Here is my proper review
Did you buy a Tesco one and unlock it? I don't know where else they're available from off-contract.
Linux drivers for the touchscreen?
Will it work with a standard distro? Anyone know?
Then no sale. This would be perfect for a satnav. Imagine attaching it to your windscreen. Who needs an outside view when the satnav is telling you what to do?
Re: Doesn't seem to be much different
Actually it is quite a bit different. You'd be surprised at how fucked up the old law was.
Google for libel reform and bca vs simon singh.
Re: On the basis of yesterday
Just buy a copy of Chimes of Midnight.
Brand seems to be under the misapprehension that profit can only be gained by ripping someone else off so he'll get a U on his Economics for a start.
As for the idea that we should all be working for the benefit of a benign, central bureaucracy, whilst abandoning the pretense of democracy; err no ta mate.
Was he bunking off school when they did Animal Farm?
Re: Child porn charges???
"if they are doing this now, what are they going to be doing later in life?"
Looking at girls their age like every other man? Guess what, there was a time when I was horny for 14 year old girls. That was WHEN I WAS 14! I've got older now so I don't. That is normal!
Child porn charges???
How is that justified? That will be on their criminal record despite them being the same age as the girls?
Whereas if they'd just actually, you know, had sex, then they'd just have had a quiet word about emotions and contraception.
Fucking stupid. Sure, what they did was wrong but child porn charges are totally inappropriate.
We had one at school
It really did feel like a 'proper' computer. Not like the Beebs.
I coded some BASIC games on it but nothing as good as the surprisingly good Space Invaders clone.
But does it taste like ethanol?
Ethanol is a key pert of what makes booze taste nice. If these molecules do not impart the same flavour then the drinks they go in won't be booze-replacements at all. They'll be brand new drinks that make you a bit fuzzy-headed.
Not a chance
3D printers below the £100,000 mark take hours to print a toy that is vastly inferior to the toys that McDs give out now. No chance this is anywhere near the horizon.
Isn't it possible
...that they were just interested in the CGI? Who's actually done anything wrong here?
When the wind isn't blowing they do what?
Buy from the grid adding to the the variability of the grid demand and thereby pushing up prices for everyone else?
Now we sit back and wait for the loons who think that running a grid is a ridiculously old-fashioned thing to do to pipe up.
No, I meant Pickman + Model.
Nice choice on the title :)
Not much of a future
Only 3 billion years? Blimey. Poor diddums planet.
Meh. Tweetlogix still works fine. Can't remember the last time I used the website or official client.
Re: A quick correction
You can get a Hudl for less than £59. I used £45 quid's worth of vouchers which they doubled up and got it for £29 of real money. That's why they're selling. They're no iPad but for a few quid you can buy one and not worry about the kids covering it in snot.
The installer supports LVM now. Excellent.
Will install tonight on the Thinkpad
Will give me something to do at the mother-in-law's :(
I had a point to make sorry, my Thinkpad also has an AMD card and I'm hoping it will improve things.
