Re: This company should be fined at a hugely disproportionate amount
If the bosses are fined, then they'll charge it to their company as a business expense.

A few random musings.
* It slightly odd that the I²C buses and Analogue ports are numbered from 0, but the digital ports are numbered from 1.
* I hope the power pin-outs on each port are the same, across the port types, so that if you connect a device to the wrong type of port, it doesn't work, but isn't damaged.
* I²C is a bus system, each device has (from memory) a 8 bit address, which is 5 bit class and 3 bit device. Therefore there can be 4 digital ports, with 8 bit output each. Thus, if the LEDs had HEX dip selectors on them, there could be upto 32 LEDs.
* The I²C ports should allow daisy-chaining, or star-topology, subject to power constraints.
All-in-all an useful interesting module. As for it not teaching people how to access a device, why run before you can walk? Adding a UART directly to the data/address bus is the classic way to do it, but is easy to destroy both the CPU, the UART, and anything else on the buses if things go wrong. Anyway, don't modern peripherals for embedded systems come with a SDK, or at least sample code, rather than just a data sheet?
Surely the publishers are allowed to set what fee they want. If they want to, they can decide to set it a €0.01 per excerpt-view, or €1.00 per annum for unlimited excerpt-views.
And in the name of everything that is sensible, turn off root ssh login — always login via a normal user and use su / sudo to become root.
You can also use fail2ban.
This is a small script that monitors your logs, for N occurrences of regexp X in Y seconds, from the same IP number.. If this is reached, then it carries out an action, and a second action after Z seconds.
By default it monitors /var/log/auth.log, looking for ssh login failures (either wrong password, or non-existent/no-login user). If this occurs 5 times in 10 minutes, then it will invoke iptables to block all incoming traffic from that IP number to your ssh server, and then automatically unban it 10 minutes later. It can also be set to email you an alert.
It is possible to have it monitor itself, so if the same IP address gets banned 5 times in a day, they get a week's ban (tweak to your inner BOFH's content).
The Myrka were also stunned or killed when exposed to UV light…
Who broke the V-hold? One would assume that the mud it landed it cushioned the impact a bit.
Did none of the mobile phones survive enough to check their memory cards?
I assume the manufacture can remove the on-board flash chip from a wrecked phone, and then extract all the data from it.
And will Facebook, the electoral commission and .gov.uk be using terrorist-enabling SSL?
Is this only amongst the different versions of MS-Windows, rather than all possible desktop OSes?
I notice the stats are given as school-employee-pervs per general-population, rather than school-employee-pers per school-employee.
If a state has more school-employees per general population (wherever because it has more pupils, or more school-employees-per-pupil), this will bias the stats towards that state.
There's a reason why UV-blocking glass is used for fluorescent lamps, it is harmful to our retinas.
As for solar charging, the Sun gives, on Earth, approx 1kW/m2 of sunlight across all frequencies, when the surface is perpendicular to the Sun. This is largely independent of latitude. A 5.5" 16:9 display is 13cm by 7 cm or about 1/100 of a square metre. If the solar panel can use about 10% of the sunlight (inc non-visible), then it would collect about 1W, which is less than most smart phones phones use when idle.
Or even litho-breaking
Would our gallant reporter have noticed the heat if he was well-oiled from his local taberna?
Well, not until the next morning…
Aye, capsaicin is only slightly water soluble, but is fat soluble. High-fat milk is the best drink to calm chilli fire.
It's been given a slap on the cheek and a double espresso, and crawled back to action.
Does "After 13:45" mean shortly after, or anytime after, possibly upto close-of-business?
It looks like their CHAP server has gone for a wee lie-down in a quiet darkened corner.
They could use a dummy base-station, which in turn, impersonates each network. In the GSM and LTE standards, there is no mechanism for the network to securely identify itself to the phone. This will give them the phone's IMEI, and the SIM's IMSI. From there, they can ask the networks to nuke both.
If they are feeling vindictive, they could (ask the network to) check if the SIM has been topped-up via credit-card, or by calling a centre on another phone, and chase after whoever owns them.
The Received-From: SMTP header might show the public IP adddress of the NAT that the infected machine is connected to.
So they are now charging a "tax" not a "levy" on storage devices. Apart from who collects it and gives it to Finnish equivalent of the BPI/MIAA/RIAA, is there any real change?
Does G.fast allow the modem and DSLAM to change the up/down ratio? I.e. most of the time a home user will have 90% down, but if they start uploading a huge file the modem will notice that it its window is increasing, and then ask the DSLAM to swap to 10% down, 90% up?
How do you lift your cable if other, later, cables have been laid on top of yours? Will they slide out from underneath them?
"Anonymous cash also does not attract transaction fees which the Banks thrive on, which is another reason why we must preserve it."
In the UK personal banking is (mainly) free. Companies, however, are charged when they deposit £10/£20 notes, and also when they withdraw £5 and coins. This is why shops offer cash-back on debit-card withdrawals - there is a fixed fee for each card transaction, so cashback costs the shop nothing, and it saves them on the percentage fee on depositing cash at day's end.
In most other countries, there are transaction charges for personal banking.
Kilometer is the 'Merkin spelling. Although why the ESA are using en-US is a different matter.
Wasn't it click at stupid o'clock about 1 week ago?
Why wasn't he wearing a facemask, as he clearly expected it to squirt everywhere?
10GBASE-CX4 is limited to 15metres, most places that would uses multi-gigabit WiFi (airport terminals etc), will have more than 15metres between the AP and their upstream connection.
The point of the new standard is so that the old cabling won't have to be replaced with new for > 1Gbit/sec wired.
However, biting the bullet and putting in the best fibre-optic links might be more sensible, if any APs can talk directly to fibre ethernet.
You can turn off WiFi on JellyBean and KitKat on the slide-down menu.
Does that that webservers physically located in the EU must not log the requestor's IP address and the requested URL, as that is personally identifying information?
Except where the website is under going ACTIVE debugging, and the log is needed for that.
Hasn't every version of MS-Windows been announced as "the best, most secure version yet"?
Some combination locks make a distinct Click when you go past the correct number, this is why some safe crackers use stethoscopes to listen for them.
Does this device use them to speed up the process?
How do you check the IMEI of a phone that's being flogged on fleaBay* ? You're chances of successfully getting your money back if it is dodgy is 1:infinity.

IIRC, Tom's Virtual TWM had multiple desktops since 1994 or so.
Can't the French Ariane rockets get high enough to launch Galileo?
Given that the demand for schools isn't predicted, when they have 5 or 12 years warning, that doesn't surprise me.
Assuming that the DVLA cost reduction is realised, and the South Wales police cost is typical, then (100-32)% of £68 is £46.24. Close enough to £50 to not justify reducing the fee.
BS-1363 is the standard for UK 13Amp mains plugs & sockets, so if a company puts them on its power cables model numbers, then it should be the same for all the UK ones.
How low are they? Can they be used in their current orbits? If not, is there enough fuel onboard to boost them to a useful orbit?
Do C&W (I think that's now Voda) home LLU? According to SamKnowes, only C&W (and another who I've got contact details for) provide LLU at my exchange.
The USB trident should be on the top-side of the connector, and USB ports should have the top-side upwards, when the device is lying naturally. However, not all devices and cables follow this standard, and if the USB port is sideways, it's not clear which way is top.

With an integrated billing system,
all the QR code needs is http://tgi.com/payment/<restaurant- nmber>/<bill-or-table-number>
and it will take you directly to a payment site, with the correct amount, and inform the restaurant that you've just paid. A smart site will allow you to under-pay the bill, aslong as someone else pays the rest of it, thus allowing splitting.
Did Google use a hash of the image, which is easily changed by small changes to the photo, or do they run all photos in GoogleMail through Google Image Search, and alert their kiddyporn team to possible illegal photos?
The keyboard doesn't send the ASCII code for the key that was pressed; it only sends the keycode.
It is upto the OS to decide what to make of the keycode, if it is CTRL or CAPSLOCK; 'Q' or 'A' (UK/FR keyboard), etc. The OS can tell the keyboard to switch on or off its LEDS, but that's about it.
£625? That's £52pm. If if the customer cancels a contract, they should be charged no more than the total outstanding amount, when there is no fault on the suppliers part. Even for a quadplay service £52pm seems expensive.
Will you accept Limericks in Latin?
