Dear Tim, please, stop it. Finance is so full of sh*tbag greedy bastards who think that without them the world will be lost! Finance people even had to invent a "Nobel" for themselves for Pet's sake! But because they have the politicians in their payroll we are screwed. They will keep playing with money that it's not theirs.

EU wants a panel o'boffins to replace solo science advisor

Press releases and panelists

"said Moedas, sounding an awful lot like former Commish president José Manuel Barroso, when he announced Glover’s job back in 2011. Plus ça change."

They have the same idiot PR, the kind of people appointed based ont their useless value.

About the scientists...oh I love the Swiss system of democracy...

Moedas is an idiot of an accountant, people who should be forbidden to do anything outside their area of "expertise" if they have any...The other day, reading about the cuts in the money for the EU science and opening the doors for Ukrainians(nothing against the people from there), I had this crazy epiphany that he did it following orders of some kind to sell heavy weapons to Ukraine.

Like "scientists" there developing advanced control systems for missiles et all, but in need of funding to buy some toys from the EADSs and BAEs of Europe to test it...

Re: JahBless The UK can leave

What you want to state with that article of yours? 2005? And did you even read it? Do you know when the first cases where reported? And do you know the name of the european parliamentary that fingered the rampant cases of BSE in EUROPE? Many tried to silent him but stopped soon the casualties were to high to hide. Take your own advice and get a clue! Here, for your own recreation http://www.bseinfo.org/bseorigin.aspx and http://ec.europa.eu/food/food/biosafety/tse_bse/monitoring_en.htm

Re: The UK can leave

No, its not rampant in the EU. Do you want to know how we got the mad cows here? Cows imported from the UK. Now you have cases of mad cows not because they are feed with MBM (nice uh? feeding herbivores with bones and meat? fucking greedy), but its been passed from adult animals to fetus, many are calling it the bovine version of scrapie. Its nice to think that the UK its the only one reporting infected animals, and you want to believe that, but its not true. I understand the downvotes, when someones criticizes our country no one like it. But some are more rational and can live with it.

The UK can leave

the EU, I will be glad in many ways. It will be more easier imposing barriers to nice practices like the ones that give us the "mad cows". And imposing controls at the City, which were always opposed by the UK. And leaving the EU, it may fuel the independent desires in Scotland. If that happens, bye bye to most of the oil in the North Sea.

While I agreed that money going to the Mafia's pockets it's not a good thing, going to the City's Mafia pocket's its not good either.

The EU itself will change, the germans and the more at North countries are doing a big mistake by antagonizing the other countries, and when resentment grows, everyone loses.

Dutch MEP slams 'cowboy practices' of GCHQ 'n' pals following Gemalto allegations

JahBless
Bronze badge
Thumb Up

Omg...

"Sophie in't Veld was more outspoken: “Year after year we have heard about cowboy practices of secret services, but governments did nothing and kept quiet! In fact, those very same governments push for ever more surveillance capabilities, while it remains unclear how effective these practices are."

The Duch MEP nailed it! Red faces, ears burning etc,etc :)

"In't Veld believes the time has come for answers. “How will the Commission investigate these allegations which, when confirmed, would constitute a serious breach of European data protection legislation? How will the Commission act against illegal hacking activities by EU member states on the territory of other member states?”

The day the City lose power (and it will), I bet british politicians will be very "pro-european"...and as usual, the Comedians, sorry, Commissioners at the Commission will do nothing for now.

""If the average IT whizzkid breaks into a company system, he'll end up behind bars," said In't Veld, adding that "hacking a SIM card manufacturer in another EU country" could hardly be within the law"

Everybody knows that the whizzkids are ugly trolls and eat to much pizza, they deserve to go to jail.

"I mean, it's one thing to criticize the US and UK governments for hacking into stuff, but to then say they didn't know about IS seems a bit weird. "

You never heard about irony? Like the MEP said, govs and secret services demanding more surveillance because of the "terrorists" and only cared about IS when they needed? I have no sympathy much less respect for these people demanding more powers.

Dial-up again?

People are used now to ADSL, Fiber and Cable speeds and going against net neutrality will end that, period. Detractors can say all they want but they forget (or conveniently forget) the MSN, AOL, CompuServe et al of the past. If was not for the growth and demand for new stuff of people online, we would still live with similar services. If I start to see my internet access crippled, I don't doubt I would spend less and less time online. The same for millions of people as well I'm sure, or at least the ones without money for a 1st class internet. Less customers, less consumers, less advertisers... It just scares me if Microsoft were successful with their MSN...

Nokia talles tell us that...

Fulfil the deadline - try not to rock the boat with radical or risky new ideas. Note how bugs are creeping in, and the fit and finish no longer has the distinctive and assurance it had at launch."

Re: *MY* network? Not really.

My recommendations go well over the entire aspects of the business because, well, that's my job. But if I'm asked about the idea of certain people (finantial, HR...) becoming local admins in their windows boxes, for example (just because they need that important software callled iTunes be available), should I simply say yes and aceept the "compromise"? I have responsability over the security and stability of the network and everything related with it. The everything "writen" it's because boards and bosses love to have a scapegoat whenever is needed.

Re: *MY* network? Not really.

"I hope you continue to work well in your job, and that your honesty doesn't cause you to fail in any future job interviews. I'd certainly mark you down if you gave that sort of answer to me."

I would never give that kind of answer but I'm really assured that *every* recommendation I give is writen and all the people in the board are awere of it. If they decided they know better how to manage the IT department, in the end I have something to recall them of it and say "Told you so..." .

"It may well be *my* network, but I am really just custodian of it for the people who matter. The security changes I'm implementing are done with the consent of my users, after informing/consulting as appropriate."

Consent?? You dont deal directly with the beancounters do you? They are "IT masters!"...

Informing? Yes, that's correct.
