He's a top executive, this WILL happen.
So where is the security sidekick with Morpheus-style leather anorak and glasses who will put a burly hand on his shoulder before the inevitable happens?
Clearly moot needs to open a new board, /confessional/, where everybody can be the priest behind the screen.
Somehow it's like that "Shockwave Rider" opening...
"Yes, little sister?" he said in a neutral tone.
"Father, I got to make confession or I'll be damned!" she sobbed. "I shivved my mom - cut her all to bits! I guess I must have killed her! I'm sure I did!"
Time seemed to stop for a long moment. Then, with what calm he could summon, he uttered what had to be said for the benefit of the record... because, while the booth itself was sacrosanct, this veephone circuit like all such was tied into the city police-net, and thence to the tireless federal monitors at Canaveral. Or wherever. There were so many of them now, they couldn't all be in the same place.
Memo to selves: would be worth knowing where the rest are.
His voice as gritty as a gravel road, he said, "My child" - aware as ever of the irony in the phrase - "you're welcome to unburden your conscience by confiding in me. But I must explain that the secrecy of the confessional doesn't apply when you're talking to a microphone."
No, there was Brown Socialism and Red Socialism.
Two faces, same old shit.
If the Palestinians were serious about freedom rather than killing anyone they don't like and especially Jews
For now, its brownshirtish Israelis doing the killing, so spare me.
Europeans have supported the Palestinians financially far more than the rich Arab states and what to they get out of it?
The US supports Israel with >3 billion per year and what do they get out of it? A few wars, kickbacks and otherwise the finger and accusation of un-americanism. Chutzpah, we hardly knew you!
Also put up the flag the Other Great Socialism of the 20th century.
A message with lots of the success.
Of course. Standard range safety etc.
GyroJets? These go best with teleportation plates when you want to off somebody. And hiking boots.
Too expensive though.
I will just drive down to
Serbia Rump UkraineBelgium and ask around for the real deal.
And that hooky side article title: "'We must stop this YouTube pick-up artist sexually assaulting women on the street'". I laughed because 'Not your personal army' applies.
Can one actually mill a barrel? I though these are made via hammering from a hot billet?
guns are actually relatively simple machines
I think I am not mistaken in the belief that they are one the most lovingly honed and exceedingly titivated simple machines, too.
Right up there with muscle cars and high-maintenance women.
Frankly, this shit is ridiculous.
Sounds more like journalists wanting to get into the news because "beellions NOT TAXED" (which is bad how?), while central banks pump out tens of billions per month to well-connected persons and revolving door outfits.
Anyone who can read french: L’étalage non assumé des rulings. These are legit companies doing legit deals. Yes, they are dodging taxes abroad, but so what?
Not clear, it is.
I recognize none of the shows except "Dr. Who" and that Oprah woman.
I stopped watching TV after the OJ trial, looks like the correct decision.
It advertises low prices and has a capex budget for its first 10 years of precisely £0.00. All calls are therefore roaming calls, parasitic on the established four networks’ infrastructure.
This ain't no "roaming call". VultureNet is a "virtual operator" and I would guess they will have to pay the infrastructure provider buckos to carry traffic. "Roaming" is when you log in to another network to make the call, and I can tell you that fat files are changing
hands servers daily for "reconciliation". "Parasitic" my lice-infested arse.
Also, these operator arguments sound very much like some of the stuff I was ordered to make up when employed a national incumbent operator (not UK) more than a decade ago. They nearly make sense.
That question has been posed about 12 years ago and is still waiting for an answer.
A freedom medal awaits the genius who finds one.
So much White Man's Burden and "Woe is me"!
Stop considering Saudi Arabia as friend, Israel as the plucky champion, Iran as enemy and stop having the stupid idea that you can implant democracy wholesale in foreign lands that have been infected by yourselves with wild ideas back when you wanted to get the soviets out.
Enjoy the permafail.
"All the markings of a state-sponsored attack."
Nobody left a file with "H4ckEd by TEAM PakistAN, OLOLOLOLL" on the server?
Consider that ISIS bans video games and these guys are ANGRY.
Clearly a negative correlation.
"How will you make the ITU more relevant to the digital age?"
Very open-ended. So what has changed in the digital age that makes the ITU less or as much relevant as before? The hands-on work of small teams on digital communications? RFCs? Why make the ITU *more* relevant?
"Is the ITU content with its current status"?
Why is that relevant to telecoms though? Do women / LG / asexuals / transgender / alternatively sexual people experience telecoms differently?
Don't you mean Francis Bacon, "the father of modern pork rind"?
"we know what caused this particular megadisaster, and it wasn't a senior manager; as mentioned in the article, it was an inexperienced member of IT staff screwing up a batch job."
Those events in the Berlin Bunker could all have been avoided if that inexperienced sergeant in Greece had properly followed procedures and applied a different key to his Lorentz machine on the second round!
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!
It's about as hard. Adding random bytes to your malware should do the trick. But you do need at least a man-in-the-middle attack situation to pull of the subsitution. OTOH, if you are forging material that has been digitally signed and is sitting on the notary's disk, you may well have all the time in the world.
It is also very hard indeed to recover the image of James Brown out of 64 byte.
No, wait. This is Leviathan who demands sacrifice, not Google.
Carry on then,
"We need to get CEOs to do two things: live on food stamps for a week, or spend a night in a homeless shelter"
This is going to help how? Looks like she doesn't understand what a CEO actually is. If the shareholders want to spend the dividends, why not? The CEO has no authority to drop cash onto the streets and I would like to see him removed if that ever occurred.
Also, "Income Inequality" is a consequence, not a cause and not a problem. It is a consequence of protectionist measures, rent-seeking and the state making hiring people an ugly proposition. Did I mention calling CEOs criminals for having the temerity to do their job? Not to mention "industrial policies" of all sort.
With that kind of populist shit on the air, it's like we are really at a Marxist rally.
"is that I was not attempting to solve the problem for the cheapskate unwashed masses wandering around looking for free wifi, but simply to mock them"
Is this the "I was just pretending to be retarded" defense?
“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!!
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.
> A content strike
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?
