“customers with urgent requirements”
Up for a bit of free-air defecation inna woods, I hope?
We still have a rotary dial phone at our house.
KARMA POLICE! ARREST THIS MAN!!
Space worker Ripley disagrees with out. So there.
Am I at the Register? I seem to be surrounded by cynical old bastards.
Because El Reg forums becomes more and more of an old pirate bar, with Orlowski ranting time and again from the upper stairway like a village priest to general rolling of eyes, and everyone hoping that they will still manage to actually see the world burn before the last bourbon is absorbed, while young ones stumble through the front door, full of wide-eyed naiveté and start to post things that apparently are full of earnest hope.
A crispy critter is you!
So what kind of cluster was this computed on? Come on, Reg!
Fuck no. He would probably start ranting about genocided Guatemalan campesinos mid-way through, to be solved with the usual recipe.
Gordon Freeman with anger issues?
At least we will have all the Jobs we need.
Politicians' prayers come true, in a sense.
That makes it hard for anyone, not just Spotify, to maintain an ethical business.
No, that assumes that the people who will pay for Miss Swifts albumas on amazon or wherever are the same as those that faff around with YouTube videos. Even after 10 years of repetition, it sounds weird to me, aking to talking up radio as the merciless killer of pop starlets.

Aka, "no content" and get a paying job instead.
Frankly its sounds like an idea that could come out of a meeting of the Communist Party.
It is a pity that people do not realise that code can be highly complex and that errors or bugs will happen.
It is a pity that formal verification methods are still considered with suspicion by the unwashed masses who would rather hack a wheelchair then test it than specify a bicycle and generate it.
Welcome to the reality of egomaniacs living on taxpayer dime.
Then just don't hand out the password, idiot.
Yeah well that's not how it works.
The only question of interest is whether the lastpass vault has been correctly encrypted before being pushed to lastpass servers
It could then reside on NSA disks, no-one would need to care.
Amazingly, the ships conveniently lined up in Pearl Harbor, were dreadnoughts that were from WWI except the Arizona. The crown jewels, the aircraft carriers, were otherwise occupied (either in the Atlantic or on resupply missions). Dodged a bullet there. Or, considering the clownish antics in trying to NOT tell Kimmel that he had a target painted on his back, maybe not.
Of course, the comparison fails otherwise anyway.
Well, yes they have - twas Governments that made the first steps into space - and no first step, no second step.
You seem to be confusing "promising to wipe out our cities" with "steps into space".
They are still promising btw, better and harder.
Well, why do you need a NTSB to do that? It's not like the spacecraft came together without any engineering. Is it like having a project manager?
Does design need to be changed, so the tail can't be deployed by mistake?
And who will come up with that idea?
Climb a remote mountain or sail offshore - at night
Call the Waaahambulance - Someone is not spending his money as Anonymous Coward and God intend.
So basically they have looked long and hard at the tapes and come up with some stunning conclusions?
“We’re a long way from finding cause, we still have months and months of investigation to do, a lot that we don’t know and we have extensive data sources to go through,”
"Me gonna be employed for a loooong time."
I would understand this if a TWA 800 dumps into the ocean (then conveniently explains away explosive residue anyway), but this?
Just keep a wrecking bar ready.
As the walls are only teflon with cheap china-sourced aluminium support, you would be looking at SUCKING DECOMPRESSION HORROR.
"The astronauts of the ISS certainly seem to have Anglophile tendencies, as they stick strictly to GMT, occupying the same time zone as the cockneys."
Didn't build the Honourable East India Company and all that imperial stuff for nothing, then?
Eating the seedcorn? Shurely not!
So how is the atmosphere INSIDE?
The search engine is called Amazon.

Anyone who implements "licensing restrictions" deserves to be pirated to death into a festering heap of maggoty shares and unredeemable debt.
How exactly are they meant to do that? We are already pretty far into brownshirt territory nowadays, but for such a move you will have to put on a black tie, too.
The title should be "Against a Dark Background"
“I think that if it was a film about a straight mathematician, people would never say, 'Oh, how come there’s no sex scenes so we know he’s straight?'”
JJ Abrams will be in charge for pointless affirmation of "hes is NOT GAY, get it?"
Now everybody read On Computable Numbers with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem
Bonus points for reading Alonzo Church's paper, "A Note on the Entscheidungsproblem" (The Journal of Symbolic Logic, Vol. 1, No. 1. (Mar., 1936), pp. 40-41.) , which unbelievably for 2014 demands Google-fu to get past the paywall usher on JSTOR. Aaron Swartz's work IS NOT YET COMPLETE.
Background from Jimbo's Nollij Store:
Church's paper was presented to the American Mathematical Society on 19 April 1935 and published on 15 April 1936. Turing, who had made substantial progress in writing up his own results, was disappointed to learn of Church's proof upon its publication (see correspondence between Max Newman and Church in Alonzo Church papers). Turing quickly completed his paper and rushed it to publication; it was received by the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society on 28 May 1936, read on 12 November 1936, and published in series 2, volume 42 (1936-7); it appeared in two sections: in Part 3 (pages 230-240), issued on Nov 30, 1936 and in Part 4 (pages 241–265), issued on Dec 23, 1936; Turing added corrections in volume 43(1937) pp. 544–546.
We are at war with Iranasia as long as AIPAC controls the money spigot.
It sounds like there is a Potemkin Village somewhere around the next street.
Not physics and math.
Engineering, mixed with politics.
Welcome to the retardation.
But at least you get free national parks with that.
It's, depending of how you define 'development'. From the top of my head, ~90% of the Russian population back then consisted in peasants living as serfs in a feudal system, which is exactly what Russia was until Red October.
Actually Russia was industrializing up very nicely, and then WWI intervened. The fact that they were in process of industrialization actually made it that they could run the war for some time.
After that, it was only smoke and ruins. After "Red October", it went downhill because Lenin thought that adding more smoke and ruins by attacking Europe through newly formed Poland in 1920 to bring the beleaguered proletarians of Berlin and Rome some freedoms would be a good idea. It was all a mess.
WOAH the pork is in.
There's a school of thought that believes Grissom and his crew (Chaffee, White) were murdered by NASA/CIA etc.
Smoking Man was seen exiting mission control room.
That was one which went into the books: X-15 Flight 3-65-97
Michael J. Adams got confused and had no way to ascertain the heading:
The ground controllers sought to get the X-15 straightened out, but there was no recommended spin recovery technique for the X-15, and engineers knew nothing about the aircraft's supersonic spin tendencies.
The board made two major recommendations: install a telemetered heading indicator in the control room, visible to the flight controller; and medically screen X-15 pilot candidates for labyrinth (vertigo) sensitivity. As a result of the X-15's crash, the FRC added a ground-based "8 ball" attitude indicator (Horton's idea) in the control room to furnish mission controllers with real time pitch, roll, yaw, heading, angle of attack, and sideslip information.
This is not about space exploration, this is a rich man putting good men at risk in order to develop a sham space experience for other rich men (and women).
Utter bullshit. These people are professionals and hired to do a job. This is no different and arguably morally superior to when the government hires these people to test new weapon systems or whatever idea crawled out of a politicial animal's brainbox. And then possibly denies that they were killed during testing.
Is it really worth it IN THIS CASE, though?
If it goes into the books, it is always worth it. This is the name of the game in this universe.
"is there an option to not fully cooperate with the authorities?"
Probably not and as authorities are meant to check for problems in the routine to make the routine even less risk-free (or not), they will be fecking useless here.
"Ummm... you were using a novel rocket motor? Uh, err........"
This commiseration theatre is as disgusting as the perpetual "thanking the troops" freakshow.
Women are ... leaving homes, work and families behind in the continual search for pleasure.
So what's new?
Tell your boss right out he is a fscking arsehole.
If only we stopped exporting our freedoms we could laugh at them from orbit.
> If fact, you cannot launch anything without it.
OH REALLY? Citation needed. Will an irate insurance agent follow you to orbit?
If you want a glimpse in to future that Sir Richard Branson and his like are taking you to, then watch Elysium!
Anyone who thinks Elysium is some True Message Against Rampant Capitalism has any lesson beyond Hollywood retardation and Matt Damon's pseudo-social arsehattery should have his head examined pronto.
Pioneers == Those who come back to tell the tale.
The problem for European customers is one of corporate and customer data leaving the relatively favourable regulation of the EU for the US.
How does that make sense?
Insulation from the US was one reason cited by the AWS host, saying customers could now architect clouds for back-up and redundancy while keeping their data in the US, as they can now make their clouds span the Frankfurt and existing Dublin regions.
Here is a low-hanging fruit for improvement, El Reg: get an intern and make him read what you have written. Choose one who has "reading comprehension" on his CV though. Today one can never be sure.
Do you think you are special?
Probably a portemanteau term of "inadvisable" and "umentionable".
The PLAID (Protocol for Lightweight Authentication of Identity) cryptography kit appears to be
insecure designed by government.
Beleaguered cards spat out junk data encrypted with an RSA shill key and it was this ciphertext which could be crunched to discover the key used, and a users' card number with accuracy that increased significantly with the number of scans.
Finally that final sequence in War Games makes sense. Armed forces used PLAID to secure the launch codes.
SOAP and WSDL may be "overengineered" but at least they are engineered. Use them. But avoid RPC mode, that idea was dumb when Distributed Computing Environment was a thing, it is dumb today.
Sadly these people don't get paid with greenbacks sporting trollface.
