How long before ...
The usains attack somebody for their IPv4 subnet?
Would be easier to build & less likely to launch the stuff you want for an atmosphere into space
But as was mentioned in an earlier comment, if you started a big space rock(tm) spinning, and heated it with the aforementioned mirror to the point where it was a liquid, you could then carefully inflate it into a rock balloon which when cooled make a nice place to live.

Pro tip: Lime preserves, quicklime dissolves, it pays to make sure you have the right tool for the right job

Wasn't there a hack against various bits of networking kit that has LEDs connected directly to the TX/RX lines. If I remember correctly "attackers" were able to pull data from another building via a telescope & some electronic trickery.
Anyone who tells you; Oh no don't worry, it's very short range should be treated with snide derision.
Hint Telescopes and Antennas are effectively the same thing
But wait! There's more!
For $9.99 you can get your very own call blocker
Call now on 0800 fck you for details
Splat a clean file system image over the top of the partition? That way you can say, encrypted data? What encrypted data?
All that random data? No that's just a very old install that I blew away ages ago
Or better yet ... Nope; it's just a swap vol
Jon Blow did a talk about deep work & how it changes the way you think
It's probably a good thing if more politicians do this kind of thing ... makes em smarter
> Bjarne had aspirations of academia (or maybe even politics), whereas K&R just wanted to get things done
And therein lays the rub
C is a language built by engineers for engineers; to get things done
C++ is a langues designed by comp sci profs, for comp sci students; to appeal to an ideology
You know who I mean ... Dijkstra and the reset of the evil language elves.
Those are names that bring back somewhat fond memories :)
And the Borland C compiler
Why not set up some exhaust ports off the main engine feed at say 45deg from the centre line
That way you could get better throttling of the main engine by opening up the off axis "engine ports"
You would be able to get some steering from them as well
Any rocket surgeons care to comment?
> Who does the Register want? Bjarne Stroustrup?
Hell NO! That man should never be allowed anywhere a compiler again!
C++ is a crawling horror. It's C that has had to put the lotion on its skin. Java is the bastard son of C and COBOL.
The lat true hope humanity has is JAI; when / if Jon every get to releasing a version we can play with
XenCenter may be a viable equivalent for ESXi
VyOS is a handy dandy router distro with a built in squid proxy, dunno if it offers content manglement
Another option may be to run FreeNAS which can run Linux VM's in a jail
the Tested guys have a quick run down here http://www.tested.com/tech/500455-building-home-server-using-freenas/
Jails may be a better option given that they are lighter weight than either Xen, vmWare or VirtualBox
Really who DIDN'T see it coming ?
Drugs, guns & cross dressing .... musta been one hellova party :)
When as a PFY, I was handed a bottle of iso-prop, a toothbrush & a jewellers screwdriver to clean a second hand DEC drum printer we had acquired second hand.
My job was to use said toothbrush, jewellers screwdriver & iso-prop to clean the decade old remnants of printer ribbon & paper dust that had caked up the print drum to the point where it only printed letter-ish smudges.
I emerged many hours later from the computer hall looking very much like a giant smurf; but the printer was sparkly clean & worked a treat :)

Bah! You can build bugs into software in any language. go back to logo and turtle graphics if you can't handle a real language. And get the hell off my lawn

Is that still a thing?

I'm building an ed209 in my garden shed for the same reason.
For some reason the local authorities got a little twitchy when I tried to import the twin .50 cal. Cobra cannons I need get the weapons systems online.
A kickstarter ?
Stove top can make a good cup of coffee; IF you don't run it too hot.
Many espresso machines run the water temp too high & scald the grounds
Bodem (French press) is the only way to go.
Percolated or "drip" coffee is ghastly; only allowed if the alternative is instant.
Fastest way to get your jolly java fix
1) Boil jug
2) Wait till water comes off the boil (IE don't scald the grounds)
3) Add to freshly ground coffee
4) wait a minute or two (the longer you leave it the more bitter the taste)
The mistake people always make, it steeping the grounds for ages in the hope of making a stronger brew. It doesn't, it just makes it bitter, if you want it strong add more coffee grounds.
Don't have a grinder any more; but Roasted Addiction Dark roast comes close :)
Every place I've worked; the SOP has been to flush the pre-installed OS image & re-install.
But these days consumer PC/Laptops etc you don't even have that option; You only get the OEM's rebuild partition
Not so much of an issue for me, most everything I buy (except fondleSlab & phones) get re-imaged with Debian. Maybe MS could do something nice like say .... "Our OS must be installed from OUR media by the END USER"; Won't work of course ... The pubic outrage would be enormous.
. Sony are out due to rootkit
. Samsung are out due to ad injection & voyeuring via your TV
. LG are out due to phoning home all your media watching habbits
. Lenovo are out for on purpose pre-installed scumware.
Who else have I forgotten off my shitlist?
Could it really be that Apple is the last honest platform standing?
Shit; I need off this rock, like right now.
Does this mean my content on DropBox is knowable?

The "bug" where the flash ad auto plays at max fucking volume --- Heyyyy you want Viagra!? --- How bout some cute Asian, Ukrainian, Russian women? If I wanted a wife/girfirend I'd rent one *BASTARDS*
Looking you too ElReg ... I understand that websites require advertising to bring in the pennies; But if you launch that shit in my face every time I land on a page, AdBlock gets installed on that machine pretty damned quick.
Every man & his dog monitoring every single thing I do down to breaking wind and you can't even deliver on the promise of all that monitoring? Accurately targeted advertising; Targeted my arse.
Yes I'm nearing 50, yes I'm currently single; No I don't want to see "older" friking ladies with their cleavage hanging over the edge to the ad window; Show me shiny laptops, cars, gadgets show me expensive holidays to tropical paradises...
Bad spam-vertiser... BAD
Now ... get the hell off my lawn
What about a HomePlug <--> LedLighting style adapter
Visable light for the meatbags
IR for the iFondleThings
Mains power for the back-haul to the router
The downside would be no network connectivity when the lights are off, Which will make night time happy time difficult unless you make it a "smart" light bulb along the lines of the Philips Hue style units.
My ancient PalmPilot networked using the same technology :)
Wasn't it 4GL & smart systems that was supposed to put us all out of a job in the 1980's ?
Setup another DHCP pool that allocates the IP address of the devices to a new subnet with a bogus default route; You can assign em based on the MAC address. If the device can't route out of your network, it can't talk back to the mothership
Wonder what happens when the great and the good get re-broadcast el-unnatural

If their revenue WRT the mobile division is ¥429bn then according to google that's $68bn (USD)
How the fuck can they only make $80m in profit? are their margins really THAT thin?
Or is this some creative accounting for tax purposes?
Or have I utterly misunderstood the article?
Nice hardware, shame about the software
I don't suppose the M$ will allow us to unlock the bootloader so I can finally install Debian on it?
When will they learn; When will they stop rolling thier own shitty interfaces & builds
If they got alongside the WRT guys, we could have a secure & up to date build on these trice damned boxes.
But Noooo .... The drooling lickspittles have to nail down our ability to get a decent WRT distro on the boxes; while simultaneously allowing the window licking scipt kiddies in through the front door.
Doesn't have to go to sleep for millions of years, Not unless it wants to go interstellar
Plenty of sunlight for electrons & material for spare parts right here in the solar system
I guess the assumption I'm questioning is that any given AI would want to rule over us like any other brain dead sociopath IE: Politician. It doesn't need to eat, fuck or climb the social ladder, so why assume it has our drives WRT to ruling the world?
The paranoia around strong AI
Why would such an entity want to hang around this dirt ball anyway. Lets face it Plenty of free energy & materials to build things in space. An AI won't give a fig about living in hard vacuum. Wanting to stick around just to subjugate us meatbags shows a distinct lack of imagination; Any AI doing so would be considered a distinct fail in the I bit of AI

> Pure-play DaaS is already handy for things like desktops for temps, the paper says, largely because it requires no capital expenditure.
Other than the screen, keyboard, mouse plus what ever connects those things to the local LAN
Or am I missing something?

Hey ... wanna see the monkeys freak out?
Agreed, utterly & completely
But as you say, the trick is to use that style of language at the right time for maximum effect.
Some of my workmates over the years have effed & Blinded every second word; sort of dulled the impact of the *censored* words in question.
I've always taken a twisted sense of pride in trying to get the same effect as swearing but with only "standard" descriptive language (it helps exercise the vocabulary). I was once oven able to make a co-worker blanch without a single foul syllable :)
Didn't one of the IP(v4) dads set out to design an "interplanetary" internet?
Personally I always thought that a bastardized version of Fido net(tm) would be a far better solution for such a high latency network. a 4 hour lag means hitting a website is impractical. Mail & file transfer is all you need in this case. Even Mars is what, a minimum delay of around 4 minutes and the maximum of around 24 minutes?
*sniff* ... Is it sad that I miss the sounds of zone mail hour? *WOOF*

I have the same policy with regards to girlfriends :)

Once upon a long time ago; when dinosaurs walked the earth
The was a project to opensource PC BIOSes, the original design was to do something similar to
SUNs OpenBoot (The FOSS one was OpenBIOS I think?).
The hope I had for this was... being able to talk to the BIOS firmware settings from the OS
Sadly, SUN, OpenBoot/BIOS all seem to be gone now

There fixed that for you
I hearby gnomeinate slablet as ElReg HR approved slango!
I see a lot of scoffing at old laws (Burn the witch, burn the witch)
But; May I remind you that the law against murder is pretty old too
Yes, older that the USA even.
Perhaps the answer for apple/google/etc is to up-sticks & move to a country with freedom & proper laws and other silly little conveniences like that; I hear the the norks are looking for some tech help :)
