Is this the home of Mr. Isis?
It would be enough to make one open incontinent fire in utter rage.

Talking about surveillance. Did El Reg strike a surveillance deal with linkedin, the Facebook For Suits? Recently page load times have gone southwards (or may not terminate) and/or you get the forever spinning wheel after page load seems to have completed. My Firebug seems to indicate linkedin doing its stuff, whatever it is (probably nothing particulary healthy...)
Did they forget the safe word?
I suddenly feel the urge to play a bit of DEFCON.
What the Chinese demonstrated was in fact, their MISSILE DEFENSE capabilities. And missile defense [something which the U.S. *DOES NOT* have btw]
The US sure as heck tries to get it operational. The fact that the biggest gunslinger on the planet doesn't exactly manage reliable intercepts should give you a hint as to the capabilities of the cheap-and-easy Chinese efforts (Hint: 250 BEEELLLION USD for a barely working TEAM USA MANLY SYSTEM, a nice price and basically a taxpayer-funded donation to Lockheed-Martin et al., correspond to around 2 years of operations for the whole PRC military at 2014 levels.)
Yes I know but doesn't water under very high pressure become a solid?
Allah is great and will send Ebola to transform their sorry arses into festering heaps of bubbling biomass.
I raise you two decades.
You may be surprised to learn that the Eccles Building is the
Nazi Romanic-style building of the Federal Reserve located in modern babylonWashington D.C., which, contrary to its name, does not house a reserve, just a computerized print shop. Set up by Monsieur FDR who thought it might be useful to control economic busts.
The English Isles - positively Celtic, with hint of Norman barbarism.
If you pay cash for your maps, they can pull you in for "obvious effort to hide a transaction"
France may become a no-go area soon.
So who are these nogos and why do they set up shop in France?
Anyone deliberately and on purpose attacking a civilian non-combatant target by definition is a terrorist unless
he/she can reasonably claim "best effort" to have avoided "collateral damage" or manages to push through the relabeling of burnt wedding guest as "persons giving material support to terrorists" (who, one supposes, must have been in the fireball at least initially). Bonus points when the collateralized area was an UN refugee compound and "audiovisual material" can be sourced that "proves" that "shots were fired" from its general "vicinity".
Thank you. Is App-V is local VM in all but name then?
We ended up moving a lot of memory hungry JVMs from Linux to Window Server and they ran significantly faster on the exact same hardware / same JVM version!
"I have one data point, it must be true."
Surprisingly, for the rest of the world the results are on the same level.
It is the plethora of inter-process communications methods that have been bolted on since then that has necessitated the re-implementation of the original concept.
...or rather the permanent configuration clusterfuck and the leaky abstraction / runny sandbox effect?
The IPC will still be there.
I wonder how the "allowed licensed usage" of this will go. Probably not well.
I remember the days when you had to mount the CD drive to use it, then unmount the bloody thing, just to eject a disk. God help you trying to get it to play the content.
Oh yeah? I remember the day when we had to get up early and pre-heat the Olivetti so that at around 10:00 one could boot MS-DOS from a gigantic floppy (HIMEM.SYS: Unable to load) . Then an orthodox priest muttered a prayer in a mysterious language and lighted incense before an actually working program could be loaded off a stack of additional floppies. "mount a CD is too hard for me". PAH!!
So does he operate out of Novorossyia or liberated Crimea?
We always insert [a plant] in any well professional hack communities, especially if they are Russian-speaking
With more red, it would go three times faster.
But if you have BOTH flashing lights AND and art installation (possibly with someone mishandling a Moog synthesizer in the background)....
... it's a Star Trek movie set from the 60s.
some easy-to-obtain fuel: hydrogen
Actually you need deuterium and tritium. The first may be had by sifting through lots of hydrogen, the second I think comes from irradiating Litihium?
So say we all but one has to make place for all the people that are immigrating, innit?

Seriously Trevor, have you ever considered writing dialogues for Quentin Tarantino movies? Those for the actors not playing the part of Sun People, that is.
pirate copies of Windows and/or contained cracked/stolen product keys, which seems like a legitimate request
Don't tell all that remote-activiation, medialess, no-you-must-download, preinstalled only, there-is-no-one-at-the-support-centre, enter-your-license-key sado-masochistic procedure I have to go through is actually USELESS TO MICROSOFT? #SHOCKED
If it doesn't seem legitimate to you, you might need to replace "Microsoft" and "Windows" with the name of a company and product that you like, and read it again
Hmmm..... the product I like can be had for free or is hardware. Weird.
Face it. Microsoft customers are exploitable elements. Anyone who believes otherwise?
"Microsoft is GOOD. Their next upgrade will FIX MY PROBLEMS."
"Take THAT, dog. I hope you like it. MWHAHAHA!" (offers glitz and ribbon crap)
"Thank you, Microsoft."
clamping down on criticism of Windows
....likely to suck all the oxygen out of the room.
<neocon>I detect the malevolent hand of Putin in this dronish attack. We better up the sanctions lest Russian tank brigades pour into Yurop like locusts</neocon>
Clearly a Blair Bug.
How much other stuff has been 'deprecated' that is actually still out there, still in use, still burnt in to code and still vulnerable?
There are a couple of "languages" named according to the third letter of the alphabet, for starters. They were shit in the late 80s.
"the video drivers are on the kernel too"
We need to stay stupid because we started off stupid.
How does the system or the web browser select the Java version to launch though?
That massive kernel sitting there? USE IT! (Throws chair)
Yes, even if Pink Floyed whined about it like Che-Tee-wearing 99 percenters.
Sadly, she looked at it as a passing fad which would divert me from studying the necessary literary skills needed for a glorious career of a taxpayer-sponsored track-to-a-vested-pension to be be lived in large office blocks.
> places like Github, which seem designed for some kind of weird socially-retarded man-child
Listen gramps, maybe you really should get into version control and distributed repos?
the Korean government made Redmond's software a requirement for online shopping and banking
An arse in charge and the taxpayer and his monies are soon parted.
I sure hope the Indjuns and Pajis have no Windows control on their non-PALed nukes...
Can you give me a CVE number on that?
"the US has a Bank Holiday"
You know it is not really a "Holiday", it was meant to make it impossible for the hoi polloi to drain the cash out of the banks because "fractional reserves, lol!"
...unless it really was him, that is.
He could open the "Bitcoin Café (apparently)". Might be a hit.
but funnily enough the servers don't run PowerPoint
I can tell you a story about what I saw on Teamviewer the last time I opened the Forbidden Doors of the Control Room...
I think CHOAM may have a word to say about that, unless you have serious support from the rather foppish and ineffectual Landsraad.
And who thought it was a good thing to launch bash when invoking one program from another?
Uhh.... your levels of abstraction are weak.
bash is another program. Welcome to the Universal Turing Machine.
...the worm is on the other foot?
OM NOM NOM NOM.
Where did the article disappear to for 24h?
Yet another backhand move by Weyland-Yutani, the Koch brothers of SPAAACE?
Did someone forget a commodore PET in the spacestation?
If there is a future, it will have the full white of the Matrix default interface for sure.
