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.
I think SOPA:
And the answer is:
Which takes you to:
for a crappy £25k job advert.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
What's to stop me...
Microsoft admit the code was copied, pull the code AND the site, apologise - Which part of this is not taking responsibility?
I'm trying to think of whatever code review is sufficient to stop subcontractors copying code and not telling you, and I can't really think of one. Microsoft's actions in light of being informed of the code theft were correct and in-line with expectations of the situation.
Glad it helped!
You can run the patch on this page and alter your BIOS to enable VT on any VAIO.
$10 Direct Debit?
As a Web Systems administrator, I can tell you that it is NOT as simple as a $10 direct debit.
Most global companies have multiple registrars (because each country registrar will levie higher fees for other countries) and then you have divisional in-fighting/crosscharging problems within the company - so usually its paid by invoice to a particular division.
Oh to work for a company with centralised IT (and a spare $10 budget - hehe)
