Is this the Cyberpolice?
They'll backtrace you
After Apple's help was no help last night, I shall be emailing the board.
Polygraphs don't work.
Any employer that insists on one clearly has fuck all understanding of science and odds are the place is a blame culture based one, rather than solutions based. I'd never work for a place that insisted on them, ever.
Example of why polygraphs are FAIL:
You are anti drugs, like very. One question is "do you use drugs?"~
To which you answer "no". But its an insulting question and pisses you off.
Later on the question is repeated. The reaction will be stronger because its more of an accusation then.
Mind you, they're a good interrogation tool.
I'd never call for a complaint, I'd rather email. And when no email address is listed, I look up the board of directors and email them.
Just a bunch of
Just a bunch of code monkeys.
Re: Quite sad...
There is a reason I wear a cheap suit. I spend too much time crawling in the dirt to wear anything better and ruin it.
Mind you, I am damn good at my job and my customers love me.
Shotguns and time
Looking for a job can be tricky. I work mid-upper range support/installs and tend to use the shotgun approach, applying for as many jobs as I can.
There is a lot of competition out there and pinning your hopes on one or two is a sure path to disappointment. The person on the other end has a lot to read so get to the damn point!
One thing that does irritate me is recruitment firms asking me to fill in their standardized form.
Is it worth the time doing the form when you just get lumped onto their database anyway until the right keywords match (months later sometimes)? Very rarely for the paygrade I'm in. When the rate goes up to £35/hr and more, then its totally worth it.
And unless its a job I really really want (like The World Food Program and/or another UN agency) I also think a covering letter has a very poor ROI. I will not send one to an agency. Its 20 minutes (and to do a personal covering letter rather than the garden variety standard one it should be taking this long to research and revise) that you will never see again.
Its a single shot muzzle loader. The fools.
When 3D printing makes toys with moving parts, then look at printing a firearm.
I used to regularly get death threats from BNP/EDL supporters for daring to disagree with them and pointing out the stupid shit they said.
Re: Isn't there an IP issue here?
Technically yes, but unless they are making money or she can prove a loss in court there is not much that can be done.
I have an old HTC 7 Pro. Yeah, its heavy, yeah the battery drains quickly when on t'internet, but I like having a full keyboard.
Apps wise, it could be better, but as WinPhone gets better market penetration, this will improve.
Re: There goes another word...
"I am sure you'd change you tune quick if YOU were the one being trolled."
I have been, many times, I've even had my address published with Streetview shots of where I live.
meh... Its mostly noise and bluster.
As soon as you lose the desire to get the last word in, or defend against obvious trolling, its not that big a deal. So what if some troll gets the last word in slagging you off. It makes no difference.
I wanted one, but they were priced way too high.
The problems with the system have been reported by Private Eye for quite some time. They are only doing something about it now because they're planning to sell it off. So the liability owed to the people jailed and cheated can be paid by the public, while the private company avoids it.
If I went to jail because of their system screw up, I'd sue them for a good million. Only if it hits them in the pocket, and hard, will they bother doing anything about it.
if only these card companies were that good at blocking merchant services that take money from scams
I can see Anonymous next doxxing target
Re: What a load of bollocks.
Good luck with that mate. tell us how it goes.
changed from BE2012
What did you change to? I'm trying to convince my workplace to stop using BE after the hell of 2012.
Must have own car
Reminds me of jobs that say "must have own car"... yeah right!
The company going to pay for business mileage insurance, the type that gives a courtesy car for breakdowns? The company going to cover the added risk to your car while you use it for their business?
And "business mileage" does not cover this.
right wing GROUP not right wing POLITICAL PARTY.
And its more than just economic policy to consider.
Re: The Jase Violence
"As far as I can see, the EDL has carefully kept inside the law,"
I see otherwise, from their carpark fights, causing trouble in KFC, and that train video I posted.
The UAF and EDL are the same, just different political leanings.
As for the EDL not being a right wing group and "against extreme Islam", well, what about attacking occupy because "they're unwashed lefties".
The EDL is a right wing group (and a bunch of customers for Tommy's wares). The EDL is a violent group.
This is the EDL
Re: @The Jase
I can tell you've never been doxxed. Scary at first, but it amounts to a whole lot of nothing in the end.
I've had enough of the EDL threaten to beat/kill me, I have very little sympathy for them.
If I believed enough in a cause, I'd stand up and be identified for it.
"Intimidating the members of EDL is censorship."
And the EDL intimidating KFC staff isn't?
The EDL marching then, by their very nature is censorship under your definition.
So what do we censor?
Selling licences not games
If its licences and not games being sold, will we get to see old school coin-op arcades coming back? The games at the local shops?
" that are busily mining away"
They're not mining, they're processing. Mining is a very emotive term that makes Bitcoin seem more valuable.
When you say mining you think men in hard hats, deep underground, pulling gold from the earth.
The reality is its just someone starting a program. There is zero mining involved, just processing.
Whenever a cointard claims "mining", I correct them with "processing".
"We've made a lot of changes in the team that stubbed its toe in the release on Backup Exec... This was our execution that caused us the problem..."
No shit Sherlock. Your latest product is a disaster. Tape Backup is not dead, and I'd rather not have to create a different job for each server I have to back up to one tape. Its so awful I am recommending customers to change product.
Re: Instead of
Another fool with this line...
"My Vauxhall won't start"
"Buy a BMW and it will"
That is what you sound like.
Re: Let's see....
"My Toyota won't start"
"Buy a BMW instead"
Is what you sound like...
Re: IP profits lawyers and extortion style law suits
"There's nothing wrong with having less risk of being sued. If you care about your IP you can still protect it. This prevents submarine lawyer attacks - always a good thing."
An individual using it? meh, I can't quantify a loss, I move on. Fox News using it and making money off it? I want my cut. Its that simple. What this law does is remove your ability to take your cut. Fox gets richer off you.
"don't quick comprehend "
don't quite. damn fingers
"I'm sure you'll stand by your viewpoint about hurt feelings police when trolling happens to be related to some of the people you really cared about, right after they died."
Seems you don't quick comprehend how complex the entire issue is.
There is you example,
or maybe "All Man-U supporters stink of wee"
Like I said, its a very complex subject matter. How do you codify good taste?
Re: Troll-finder... Did he find the pro-windows 8 guys on this site?
Slandering MS. To the dungeon with you!
"you're ugly and you're spotty and you smell like Billingsgate"
come into. Banter? Insult? Slander and Libel?
Some people do harass others (like altered pictures of the recently dead), but do we really need a hurt feelings police?
And what about people who pass on dead celeb jokes? Isn't that also RIP trolling?
Its an incredibly complex and difficult area to police, and the noise to signal ratio is enormous.
Its far too expensive. Only a fool would pay those sorts of prices.
80% smells of bullshit to me.
Gyeonggi-do is a mass of high rise buildings, the casualties would be enormous.
The UN would flatten North Korean within 3 weeks, China would seal its borders against refugees.
What will be very telling is if the DMZ/JSA tours are still being operated at the moment.
"Oh you work in IT. Could you design our website/newsletter/whatever?"
Sure, I could do it...badly. Get a specialist if you want it done properly.
Had a Facebook friend message me for help with her Word not working.
Finally got remote access, saw the error. Also saw how pisspoor her internet was.
Office 365 worked after Manx Telecom fixed the line (which they denied was the issue, even with noise on it).
If it needs to attach to the internet, its useless, like Sim City 5
Re: China only has a monopoly on willingness to pollute
"Rare earths are unfortunately named: they aren't rare"
But they tend not to be concentrated in nice, easy to mine seams
Looking at how primitive their IT was when I was last in country, I'm not surprised.
Theymay have quick internet, but there are still an awful lot of CRT's and junk boxes out there.
What did KimDotCom do?
CEO Mike Lawrie and the rest of the board not getting a bonus or pay rise this year then?
Symantec's latest Backup Exec disaster works on the premise that tape is dead.
Its far from dead, but Symantec's selling of Backup Exec might be if they don't take it into consideration.
'Lecky tech cars move pollution out of urban areas and into the places where the power is generated.
Its friendly to your local environment, but not necessarily environmentally friendly.
