I'm a home user. In the last few weeks I downloaded Diablo and Destiny to my Xbox One (along with some free Xbox Gold games), watched innumerable stuff on Youtube, Netflix, etc. (In 720p/HD) And I did it over a VPN to bypass Virgin's traffic management. I'm not a pirate, but my usage for the last month is over 200GB. And I'm not even in a shared household. I refuse to believe I'm that unusual.
Phone call on same frequency as a terrorism suspect ...
At least 8 calls a day...?
Of course, there's nothing stopping you using NTFS reparse points to effectively pretend to have unlimited numbers of copies of the same file, thus giving you unlimited money! (Especially if the 'machine' you connect to the bitcoin network is a virtual machine with an abstract hard drive... /sigh)
If you want to run multiple TVs off one media playing device, I found that:
Device/PC into Dr HDMI (Pretends to be a permanently switched on TV (copies an upstream EDID) so that the device doesn't get confused):
Dr HDMI (and also Sky, Xbox, etc.) into a 5 way switch:
Then the 5 way switch into a 4-way active splitter:
Feed from the 4-way into each TV.
Yes, a Harvard kid should know better. The use of PAYG GSM internet access and non-US VPN service, connected to a new-build Linux VM deleted after the task, would've been the way to go. Rookie mistake!
The company said the number of systems affected by the issue represented less than 0.4% of units shipped to date. (Source, BBC.)
1 million units shipped;
40,000 units faulty?!
Visual Studio 2012
Actually, Microsoft re-added the Visual Studio 2010 Blue Theme in VS2012 Update 2. Just saying.

Linux has no games worth playing other than XPilot. Linux Gaming Fail.
Re: Luxury product
It was this logic that led to the first Goblin War in Harry Potter.
Re: @M Gale
Good luck reselling your TV license.
Re: I might have thought this was a good review until I got to this bit:
Hey, don't knock the TNG movies. How can you be upset with such greatness as:
1. Beardy Riker flying the enterprise with a Gamesmaster Golden Joystick? (Electroplated Quickshot II)
2. "You precious little life forms! Where are you?" -- Lt. Cmdr. Data, singing.
Paris. For no obvious reason.
Re: research my arse
And when 'Uncle' Ben Verwaayen added the clause that every contractor must take a 10% pay cut on every renewal.
I miss working @Adastral
I used to work on the 'secret' floor in the 'iconic' tower - The one that had the police guard outside and had a special thin-doored lift. (So secret, that every contractor who ever worked for BT FastTrack visited to update the MI5 phone monitoring software.) The restaurants were superb.
Re: Why allow third party cookies at all?
Breaks 99% of lesser-known shopping carts if you don't. (e.g. RBS Worldpay gateway, et al) Also, any 3rd party proxying, such as subscription mechanisms that use jsession cookies, such as campus-based logins for journals/libraries, etc.
Yes, but if I legally license your 25-50mb file, crop it a little, remove the tags, drop it on a server, then *someone else* can *legally* use it because its now an orphaned work.
That's why this is a bag of fail.
This was a good article right until the final line; "That he ended up hanging from the ceiling in a Brooklyn apartment at the age of 26 is a damming indictment of the system as it stands, and proof of the need for change."
It won't earn me any friends, but the tenuous linkage is just that: tenuous. It falls into the same camp as pushing through UK legislation to monitor all internet usage because, you know, terrorism.
If individuals have harassed an individual to death through abuse of power, then by all means, take action against those individuals. I'll gladly stand on the soapbox beside you and deplore. I just don't see a systemic breakdown of command and control here; I hate people bandying hackneyed cliche and sensationalised rhetoric over something as senselessly tragic as this. You could've just ended the article one sentence earlier.
One reason to buy...

Re: Well done!
"food first, rockets later" For the Chinese, or the NKs?
People need to see that there are things bigger than they are, that man's reach should exceed his grasp, so that you know that there's something damn well worth living for. Whether that's religion, collective achievement, or whatever floats your boat. We all desire something... numinous.
Re: Devil's Advocate
The linked article (interview with LionBridge user) states:
One thing I think the SEO community is missing is that this program has nothing to do with SEO or rankings. What this program does is help Google refine their algorithm. For example, the Side-by-Side tasks show the results as they are next to the results with the new algorithm change in them. Google doesn’t hire these raters to rate the web; they hire them to rate how they are doing in matching users queries with the best source of information.
Re: For trolls, Freedeom of Speech doesn't come into it.
How many countries did you have to fly to before posting that?
Erm, that's not the case. The Agency model is one where you sell the books at all sorts of prices set by the publisher, and the retailer takes a set percentage cut. As opposed to the one where the Publisher sets a recommended price, and retailers use their clout to buy at whopping discounts of up to 70%. There's nothing about setting all books to be the same price.
Already bought mine...
Thank you, Bundlebox
This wouldn't happen if the toads wore graphene hats.
There's nothing graphene can't do.

Steganography on the image led to a decription key for shell code in the hex bytes. This (compiled in the pastebins in the previous comment) returns the URL:
Which leads to part 2 of the challenge, which is to write a virtual machine compiler to run the next set of bytes to return the 3rd URL.
The Virtual machine is already written in python here:
Which leads to part 3 of the chalenge.

More than a mouthful's a blessing.
And anyone who can associate that mac address with you can then and forevermore know your geographic location. I can think of many undesirable consequences, especially when I'm trying to get away from an abusive fiance.
Really useful functionality such as leaving your front foor open so the postman can deliver parcels would seem like a good idea right up until someone steals your furniture. That's why we don't do it.

Love the book, would make a terrible movie though. A blob appears, a bunch of spaceships have a conversation. Not really the stuff of cinematic legend. A bit like the Stephen King paradox...
At the firework party in the water meadow, broadband upgrades were the hot topic. So yes, 100% in Whitchurch is realistic.
I'm trying to understand the editorial point. Putting eggs in one basket is bad? Should we just put our details into as many disparate company systems as possible, because that's more... secure? less secure?
Or is it that we should just not trust our trading partners? Do these include Worldpay, Paypal, etc?
I admit, I'm lost.
And yet the Inland revenue will wave IR35 at you SO FAST claiming that you really are an employee and please, pay more tax, you bludger.
"You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you, upon payment of a fee. Please address any requests to Crown Paints Limited at the contact address set out below."
Well, screwing up is almost a public service then.
We copied more files even than this using ViceVersa. Slow enumerating the files, but the copying worked flawlessly.
Quick, change the combination on my luggage!
Commuties of Practice?
This entrie article is basically a summation of Social Capital and Communities of Practice.

Where's the dissection?
This just seems to be a parsing of the marketing digest. i was hoping for some in-depth analysis of the features comparative to VS2008...
Armageddon Clock Started
So, one year until we all go iPredator? (Or route all our surfing through TOR and cripple it...?)
Actually, the best honest review I've read of the iPad is on PVPOnline:
I'd be happier...
If everyone kept their existing domain names, but adult binary content was forced onto .xxx. That way its the best of both worlds - Mr Purveyor of Erotica can keep his site, but all his image links would point to a .xxx domain. That way we can block Adult images/video without impacting existing sites. Especially helpful for non-adult sites that may want to include adult images on occasion.
There's a thought people keep bypassing
Academic texts, eg Palgrave Macmillan titles.
Your university textbook costs way more to produce than the latest pulp fiction novel, and has a much smaller target audience. Unless you want the dumbed down text books with a fraction of the content, then what incentives are there to make large academic texts and sell them for a fraction of their former value?
Imagine the £9.99 Biochemistry textbook.
A browser either complies with the standards or it doesn't...
Sorry, which Browser is 100% standards compliant?
