Crack CERT warriors arrive to save UK from grid-crippling hack attacks

Colin Camper

Re: What's that sound ?

"Quite true. You can tell because they used the prefix "Cyber"

Possibly, but mainly by the twice yearly skiing trips and shopping at Waitrose/Boden.

Btw - there are probably very few UK national tech guys working there - the clue is the phrase 'recruitment issues' which indicates that the skiing Bodenites are recruiting through Tech Mahindra and such like.

Retiring greybeards force firms to retrain Java, .NET bods as mainframe sysadmins

Colin Camper

Of course the banks will be happy to pay £millions because 'you have to pay market price for talented people'.

In any event it doesn't matter. Crypto currencies are delivering distributed, decentralised and fair investment banking to the masses that will enable Joe Bloggs to compete with the likes of these City Spivs.

Micro Men: The story of the syntax era

Colin Camper

Re: A brief - and significant time

"One of Thatchers less trumpted legacies."

Hardly. The NEB was created by the previous Labour government. They, along with the BBC of course, largely kept the wonderful entrepreneurs and their fantastic ecosystem going which included the large electronics magazine base throughout the late 70's early 80's.

If anything Thatcher killed off the British home micro revolution because their early 80's austerity drive meant that British micros had to be ridiculously low spec and cheap compared with US home computers.

The only Thatcher legacy was the successful 'commoditisation' of the PC by Sugar which, while nice, was not a new paradigm.

UK IT supplier placed on ASA naughty step over 'misleading' HDD ad

I have always found aria to be great value

I've been using Aria for years and, not only do they usually have the best pricing, they have always been very quick and with good support. The comments section on the products is very useful.

In years of buying stuff I only had to send 1 thing back and it was handled pretty efficiently and quickly.

Either the customer is full of b.s. or aria mixed up a drive with an old one - in which case it would have been a really old model???

Go on, buy Bitcoin. But DON'T say we didn't WARN YOU

Re: Rampant speculation

"sell everything to get more real cash."

and by real cash you mean the dollars and pounds that the central bankers have been printing $£Trilions of to give to banksters and russian gangsters, eh?

Bitcoin is not in a bubble.

Bubbles grow, grow and grow more and then pop.

Bitcoin is volatile but with 50% downward swings this week it is certainly not a bubble!

Those who believe otherwise will be feeling rather gutted by next summer!

Enraged by lengthy Sky broadband outage? Blame BT Openreach cable thieves

Those thieves deliberately did ACTUAL damage to thousands of peoples ability to communicate than Gary Mckinnon ever did and yet if they were caught they would get a caution or 3 months in a cushty open prison.

Firefox OS update adds performance, polish to Mozilla's webby mobes

Colin Camper

V1.01 works great for me.

I swapped my Nokia Asha for a ZTE Open.

It's the best phone I have ever used on a daily basis.

Also because it was so cheap it's not a disaster if I lose or break it.

So as far as I am concerned the update is just a bonus.

Google: Thanks for the billions in revenue, UK. Here are your taxes, that's ... £11m

I use a Mozilla phone - no spying or shady data mining, ditched gmail.

Much better!

Re: @Zola Lackluster

"I bought my first two Android phones on e-bay and they are both still working fine."

That's fine if you want an NSA spy in your pocket. For me and millions of others the Mozilla or Ubuntu is the only option for a smart phone. I want a phone that isn't rammed with malware and doesn't let the State spy on everything I do.

AMD joins LibreOffice, adds GPU grunt to free software suite

Windows 8.1: 'It's good for enterprises, too,' says Redmond

Colin Camper
Meh

I paid £25 for Win8 pro - I also liked it (after getting used to bypassing metro) - however since PRISM it's gone. Replaced by Ubuntu. I find my productivity has gone up - web work. Libre office and Base are good - I can use base to directly work on my MySQL tables on the web, GIMP is ok and all the transcoding etc seems to work better on Linux.

Snowden dodges US agents in Moscow, skips out on flight

Colin Camper

"Turning the US into a police state will be the lasting legacy of the Obama administration"

Most of this stuff was started by George Bush, actually. Reagan did some underhand stuff but you could not accuse him of wanting to spy on his own people.

Agree, however, that despite being a supposed lawyer, Obama acts like a Mafia Boss.

France gives Google three month DATA PRIVACY DEADLINE

Colin Camper
WTF?

Re: Google should be kicked out of Europe.

No - Mckinnons actions were not different.

Every time you browse to a web page you are accessing a (usually private) computer system using default authentication. That is exactly what McKinnon was doing - via telnet not HTTP. In your world everyone is a hacker and should go to jail for 3 life terms. Plonker!

Re: Google should be kicked out of Europe.

How very Andrew Jones of you.

Gary Mcklinnon telneted onto open public computers in the US and faced oppressive extradition proceedings for ten years. That was called 'hacking' by Googles masters.

"and by *private* you of course meant public, since that is what any WiFi network that has no encryption is"

Just like the computers Gary 'hacked' - unless you call 'root' + "null" or root + "password" private.

What a plonker you are Andrew!

Google should be kicked out of Europe.

Sanctions are not good enough. It didn't stop Google hacking tens of thousands of private wi-fi networks. No. Shutdown of Google operations in EU juristiction is required by several laws.

Re: Yep knew it would happen.

Indeedy! No U-turn on the fact that the kids shiny new X-Box will be spying on them and their parents and filing real time reports to the NSA. This is why my Win8 became Ubuntu, the kids x-box became PS3 and my Phone 8 became a Geeksfone FirefoxOS.

Julian Assange: Google's just an arm of US government

Thumb Up

Assange is right and not just over Prism

Any non-US citizen still using Google or any corp on that Prism list must seriously need their head examining!

There are disturbing connections in UK government between Google pod-people and politicians, mandarins and useless quango bosses.

Go ahead and knock Assange but don't come whinging and crying when you wake up in a thought controlled state.

So you want to be a contractor? Well, here's how it works

Colin Camper
FAIL

I started contracting in the late eighties. IT contracting is finished now. As a business model it has been shafted for at least ten years. Not just in terms of the poor UK rates but also the risk posed by HMRC and government policies.

The reasons there aren't many girls in IT contracting are two fold; The job itself is absolutely shite, having to work with mentally ill people and idiots. The other reason is that the money and kudos is much better in marketing, finance and HR and women don't tend to gravitate in stupid directions.

Microsoft honcho pleads with media: 'Stop picking on us!'

Colin Camper
FAIL

Re: "Microsoft honcho pleads with media: 'Stop picking on us!'"

Err! I think Sony did that all by themselves when they infected the computers of millions of loyal and law abiding music fans with a malign root kit. Or maybe it was when they gave away millions of loyal PS users account details and then went off-line for weeks. Or perhaps it was insufferable closed-ness but without the Apple chic - remember ATRAC anyone! Remember the way they wanted to treat Europians like criminals for modifying their PS maybe believing that Fascist US law is a worldwide juristiction.

Microsoft may be a hardnosed corporate like Sony when it comes to dealing with companies but, having used them since the 70's (I bought a MS Basic ROM for my Nascom!), they treat their customers good. Always have done.

Great as long as you don't use it much.

"the 480GB can have 72TB written to it over five years"

So it's only any good for archiving then?

My lad breaks through the 100GB per month on our 'unlimited' broadband regularly.

The future's bright, the future's a spinning platter!
