One Question Here
This is the guy on that video right? Or is it the company that he talks about, that he founded, that has the software almost impossible to uninstall? (Actually it's not, but there is an advertising icon that's to my knowledge indestructible.)
*Sounds very much like systems administrator which is what the NSA originally said. Wonder if they changed all the backdoor passwords. Heh, heh.
It is based on precedent, which means previous decisions are automatically taken as correct unless they are directly challenged. It is very rare for a case under the Justinian system to be allowed to question the laws which govern the case which is in question, oddly enough. Oh, and yes, our justice system is in fact named after a roman emperor.
They managed to enormously screw up the service for many southern Oregon users about ten years ago with their miraculous transformation to Whatever Live etc. I permanently lost an e-mail address I'd had for years then and simply couldn't get it back, with an enormous dither of "we'll fix that for you" at places from forums to (believe it or not) Microsoft itself. I have a G-mail account or three now. I might even have a Yahoo! account. You know what? 'cause I'm me--I CAN'T GET A HOTMAIL/OUTLOOK/WHATEVER ACCOUNT. Which would be enormously frustrating except that I find it hysterically funny.
Well, since Dell has continually gone to lower-quality manufacturing and lack of support (including forgetting to supply their phone tech support people...with information about the equipment they're supposedly supporting)...I think anything they do is a fail. It's just sometimes Michael fails less than at other times. But remember to always forget quality Mike.
Which is precisely why I objected to the change in computing thinking to the always-on computer and consequent vulnerabilities. Of course there was the miserable failure of "sleep" in the good old Windows system or worse "hibernate" which they assured us would take care of any possible ills. So we should have written our OWN platforms, back in the early days...nvm.
Re: Kenny Everett
Um, Kenny--you didn't EAT lunch yesterday. That was the day with your girlfriend, remember?
Google it, but the very core of this is the assumption that if a hypothesis is formed and then a method of somehow isolating a process defined as causative is determined to be valid, then with a few tests refined mathematical analysis of the results is pursued for "proof". There are a few problems. The identity between tests is defined using strictly exclusive measures, with a great deal being "intuitively" adjudged unimportant which is definitely arguable. (Deciding that the color of a test area is unimportant is a common example.) The second is the usage of methods to determine identity between subjects--and the third is that the empirical hypothesis doesn't allow for proof, it allows for the transition between hypotheses and theories, which most supposed scientists in any modern discipline evidently find hard to grasp.
My apologies in advance. That is the correct explanation, however.
Re: This is..
Just don't tend to be an experimentally-minded sailor or mix with them, because you're liable to end up dead. Oddest thing how sailor jokes tend to get taken seriously and how quickly that can lead to trouble. Yes, experience; yes, I know it's still valid--but yes, personally, it's from long ago.
Re: recently joined the club
I have another problem, I keep waking up and seeing this odd face in the mirror and searching for a name for it...can you help me mister?
You stead yourself too. Is this a new trend?
How do you stead yourself? Or do I want to know?
How many at the Reg wear non-prescription glasses? just outta curiosity ya know...
NSA invests in storage too...but
Not in cloud services. Gee, I wonder why. Could it be they're considered insecure? (The CIA is a bit down the ladder from the NSA.)
Well, the expression on her face
did make it seem like she was pretty steamed up about it.
The McAfee is safe claims the linked twit...
I meant tweet or teat or something I guess. It doesn't say a thing about the virus.
Re: The story of human history
Sounds like stick shift to me.
You forgot to note that sales people (pardon me "associates") are even timed on how long it takes to close a sale. Composing a sale would be a breach of conduct and punished.
"hexagonal shaped" remnants
That's what those tiny islands are near Hong Kong?
Why, I'll never fake "like" you again.
The site 888.com has also...
been marked as totally untrustworthy on "Web of Trust" which means that millions won't go there anyway. Web of Trust add-on is quite valuable.
I read El Reg
Do I qualify?
I keep losing my own personal data. Now who am I?
I just have one burning question...
When is the Deep Throat of El Reg gonna speak??
UM...I must have misunderstood...
SonicWall is getting an erection?
As early as 1995 Harry and David policies were that they only wished to retain 45% of their consumer customerbase because it was simply "too expensive" to provide ideal customer service. Oddly enough, they had and have little interest as well in business interests, probably because a laissez faire model of this type just won't work.
Oddly enough analyses have never examined this portion of their odd industry, which is the delivery of specialty foods of various sorts and at one time stood the chance of resounding success. As it is, because of this "BI" attitude, they're going out of business, having suffered bankruptcy twice and verging on it again (this latter is my opinion only, mind).
Need to find intelligent users first.
A robot Reg reporter!!
And I'm never allowed to comment again...
and lab work is...
of course a proof.
and clearly you were never in the U.S. Navy.
I've gotten several lately. Since I don't want Apple products and have nothing beyond the necessary basics installed, they've evidently picked up the e-mail address somewhere, but not the name.
Updates? bah, I love getting hacked.
I've used them many times on a flight and I'm a complete idiot.
See? No change.
As a one-time customer
I would have thought they'd leave it up as a brag. Why the hell doesn't the Reg contact them about whether they removed it by mistake?
(500th reference, I think I win a prize of some kind.)
as a fairly chilling note...
Messages are passed in banned languages on Runes of Magic, and some fairly evident passages of information in agreed references. We will of course assume they're gamers simply passing banned information such as hacks.
I want a special warning sticker
for the Reg! 'nuff said.
So do England and the U.S., unfortunately. In general it's called "maintenance of power".
It was pretty fatal at the end of the Middle Ages if you recall. But then most Americans certainly aren't students of history and I daresay most people.
so who says it isn't
a black hole?
And on a secondary note wth can't your signin manager figure out that "coom" is "com"? dumb AI's. Omigod it just took my computer offline for tha
Texas, civilization and radio technology.
At least they've started hearing 'bout the new thing called stereo now.
National Security Act
Read the provisions.
Freedom of Information Act my eye.
Still a question I have.
I tried that...
I turned into a Reg reader. It works!!!
How about a free ticket (and back) to England first?
To at least an extent these were available to the U.S. military and other U.S. organizations at least by 1975.
So there is the mistaken impression that the ordinary FBI professional knows spelling and grammar? I'm amazed.
Poor excuse for putting on a few since wifey left ya.
