Surely the DVLA have a duty under the DPA (or the data protection directive as it is now) (article 6) to
Personal data may be processed only insofar as it is adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purposes for which they are collected and/or further processed. The data must be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that data which are inaccurate or incomplete, having regard to the purposes for which they were collected or for which they are further processed, are erased or rectified.
If they accidentally remove someone's license entitlements, then they have breached the directive, and must correct this as soon as they have been notified.
Has there been any cases of the DVLA been taken to court over the DPA?
Valgrind doesn't work on Windows, and is unlikely to ever do so.
If you're using NAS for your backups, then in the name of the Wee Man, only mount today's directory.
That way, you can't trash other days' backups.
Deinococcus radiodurans is resistant to radiation, cold, desiccation and vacuum. An experiment was performed where a microbe, probably D.R, was placed on the outside of the ISS. It was still viable after 1.5 years.

Doesn't NTP, by default, reject anything that is more than 1000 seconds (about 20 mins) different that the current time?
Go makes an interesting analogy for Warfare.
If you play too agresively and spread yourself thinly over the entire board, you will end up being surrounded and be totally annihilated.
If you play too defensively and stay in one corner, your opponent will capture the rest of the board, and you will lose badly.
This makes Bernie's Madoff's 150 year sentence for running the largest Ponzi schemes look positively lenient.
I can't believe that the article didn't, and no commentards have, mentioned Leonard Nimoy.
Possibly should be 503-Service Unavailable or 504-Gateway Timeout instead.

rather than have each computer upgrade to the latest build of Windows 10 via gigabytes and gigabytes of Windows Update downloads
I thought that Win10 Home shares patches between machines on the same network, thus they only have to be downloaded once. Machines on a corporate network will normally connect to a WUS server, which controls and caches which updates will be applied.

Is that suitably weak for you Hilary?
He's got a rival in this dim-witted chap who turned up to court, on a charge of supplying cocaine, where he was found innocent. However, he had cocaine in his personal effects at the time, and was up before the beak again, where he plead guilty. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/oct/16/man-jailed-after-turning-up-in-court-dock-with-large-amount-of-cocaine
Closest approach will occur on Fri 14 July, 11:49:57 UTC, regardless if the probe is in safe mode or not. It's not asif it has any friction or Δv.
QR codes are just plaintext. By convention it's a URL, but that's not required.
The safer thing to do is have the QR contain heinz.de/promo which is a redirect to the real promo site. That way, when the promo ends, the redirect can be changed to a page that reads 'We are sorry, but the promotion has ended. Please enjoy the exciting Heinz Germany site'. The promo site can then be left to expire.

Have you ever heard of Aggreko? They are one of the biggest generator hire companies, and their UK operations based in Glasgow. They provided 200MW of generators when Japan got a bit wet in 2011.

… are best eaten when they are young; they only get stringy as they get larger. They add a bit of nuttiness to salads.
Is Cowell any worse than SAW were?
[Costa are going to] implement a "new format" for users' passwords.
Am I cynical enough to read that as "storing it hashed and salted, rather than plain-text"?
Obviously, his homoeopathy stress-relef pills aren't worth the sugar they're made from.
Hold a tick,
does this need the server admin to open what s/he thinks is foo.jpeg, but is really foo.jpeg.apx ? I'd suspect that most admins turn of extension hiding in File Explorer as soon as Windows is installed. Does it still work in that case?
It was The Scorpions Virgin Killer that triggered the block on Wikipedia. However, both Nirvana's Nevermind, and Led Zepplin's Houses of the Holy were discussed in the subsequent fallout.
You get tags that sound an alert if they are separated by too great a distance from their receiver. Keep the receiver attached to your person (not in your jacket, etc!), and the tag on your lanyard. As long as the first secure door isn't too close (might be a problem in a server room), then you will be alerted before you lock yourself out. These ones are to be paired to your phone, but there are also stand alone ones.
There's an Arduino project that does it. You just wire it to the floppies' head and spindle motors, tell how many it has, and then give it a MIDI fie; it does the rest for you.
Each was ordered to pay court costs of $212, while Walker-Gaines is required to repay Schaefer $9,000 in $175-a-month instalments.
That's over 51⅖ months, or about 4¼ years.
I'd agree with James. There should be automatic systems at the 911 call centre (the bit that asks which emergency it is), that monitors the geographic rate of calls. If an area hass far lower than would be expected for the time-of-day and day-of-week, then an alert is sent, so that someone can look at it.
Likewise, at the subscriber-most exchanges, test calls should be made every, say 15 mins, to make sure that the call connects to an operator. If the call fails to connect, an alert is raised.
If the alerts aren't acknowledged, then it should be sent to another response centre, so they can prod the correct centre to fix it.

Don't most tablets support USB-on-the-go, allowing it's usb port to work as a master as well as a device?
They seem to have installed a new certificate, which was issued on 8th January 2015, and will expire on 1 April 2016. They are also using mixed https/http, which causes a warning flag (but not a direct message) in firefox.
Would the digital prepayment or dumb meters survive this type of overvoltage?
I'm a total dummy when it comes to this stuff. Can someone succinctly state how 4 and 6 can get along?
The underlying transport protocol (normally Ethernet) has a byte to indicate that it's carrying an ARP, rARP, IPv4, IPv6 packet, etc.
There are already programs that will simulate slow or unreliable connections. See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1094760/network-tools-that-simulate-slow-network-connection for a discussion.
Netem on a linux bridge can add latency, re-order, duplicate and drop packets. It can do this either at a constant rate or in burst mode, which may be useful to simulate dodgy WiFi or GPRS connections. It can also do it to a different extent depending on which way the traffic is going.
Scary fact - Clippy porn, sorry, "erotica", actually exists
Rule 34: If it exists, there is porn of it — no exceptions.
Rule 36: If you've thought of it, then there's somebody out there with a fetish for it.
It uses the deceleration sensors that trigger the air-bag. If the airbag(s) are triggered, it phones 112 for you. If you are just driving with gusto, it doesn't. Simples.
Can you turn off those LEDs? I can see them getting very annoying, very quickly. I normally put stickers over the power-on LED if they are too bright.
Even better for enterprises with dozens or hundreds of computers all trying to update at the same time every Patch Tuesday.
Enterprises are likely to be running WSUS which caches the patches.
The Long Utopia, co-authored with Stephen Baxter, is due for release in the middle of June.
Over what timescale will the £17 billion level of saving be realised?
There are 26 million households in the UK, according to the 2011 census. If the saving is per household, per year, then that's £654 per household, which is clearly bollocks.
The UK's total annual electricity consumption is 330 billion kWh (in 2010). Electricity generators get paid £0.09 per kWh on average, households pay around £0.13 per kWh. At £0.09 per kWh, the UK's total electricity bill is £29.7 billion. The £17 billion saving is 57% of that. Again the stated amount of money saved is bollocks.
I have ignored gas costs, because (1) I don't have the price or consumption values, and (2) a good chunk of the the gas consumed in the UK is used to generate electricity, which leads to double-counting.
Can Windows Server Update Services run on Win7 Home Premium?
It might be worthwhile using WSUS to cache the updates for your users.
I assume that's studio-edit quality, before being compressed to Blu-Ray quality, at 50 GB for a two layer disk, so around 20-30GB for the film itself.
Downloading 300GB at 10Mb/sec will take the best part of three days.
