My router does MAC filtering, I've not bothered 'till now. I shall be switching it on this weekend.
Not that I'm at risk yet, only one person I know has >7 and that's on a desktop. Still, the time to act is now.
Re: Can someone explain....
Oh go on then, I'll bite.
First up they are not used to "to work out that a nuclear war will wipe most of humanity of the face of the earth". That's not AWE responsibility. They serve 2 functions.
First they verify that these things we taxpayers pay craploads of money to have still work decades after one was last tested. I as a taxpayer am interested that this is done. It is an economic viewpoint that is totally unrelated to my opinions as to whether we should have/keep them.
Second they verify that as they get old they aren't going to go kablooey unrequested. I'm interested that this is done from every viewpoint.
Re: He twists and he turns
Or he's guilty, he knows it, and he's stalling because there's a statute of limitations nearing.
No such thing for his breach of bail. I wonder if he's made any money as a result of being in the Embassy rather than in jug. Hope so, POCA should then ensure the taxpayer gets some money back for the cost of plod being on his doorstep for 4 years.
Turtle, your shot at a Wooden Twig of Fail is transparent. You shall not receive the downvote you crave. I simply cannot accept that someone dumb enough to genuinely believe your twaddle would remember to breathe. Ergo it has to be a shot at a WToF.
Re: Most philanthropic American...
I'd prefer he continues to take his time giving it away. So far he has backed some extremely good causes and successfully avoided buying London Bridge. The faster he shovels it out the harder it will be to avoid the scammers & freeloaders. His foundation will outlive him and do good for a very long time to come.
It's a shame so much ire is being directed at the victim of this attack and not the perpetrators.
1) Spies spy, it's what they do.
2) This attack is not the same as mass hoovering of metadata, they keys taken cannot be used indiscriminately because they are only used between the handset and base station.
3) Any attempt at mass hoovering would require intercept equipment in the vicinity of every cell site in the target country. Impractical.
4) An attack using these keys forces the handset to drop to 2G, if that were happening on a mass scale someone would notice.
5) These spies have no need of the keys for targets in friendly countries, they can simply request an intercept.
So this raiding party facilitates targeted attacks against parties of interest in unfriendly countries. Pretty much what GCHQ and the NSA ought to be up to.
What I am left wondering is why within the EU they needed to go on a raiding party. It should have been possible to acquire what they needed via gagged court orders. Did they suspect a leak that would reveal their actions should they take the legal route?
...set of modules for it, I'm particularly pleased to see the 'electricity detector'. There's no shortage of devices to allow me to turn a mains powered device on or off but very few easy ways to get a pi to react to a mains powered event. E.g. when appliance X turns on then turn on appliances Y & Z as well. This is much neater than a relay.
Re: Potentiometer + cloud
With management in the cloud....
Yes all those cloud devices can do those things. Right up to the point your ISP goes down, a JCB goes through the fibre to your exchange, the server goes titsup, the cloud service gets retired or an incompatible upgrade or a gazillion other things you have no control over.
Or you could go the extra mile to get the smart devices to talk directly to one another and have independence & privacy. Plus, when it stops working you will know that the scope for where the problem lies rather than being 'somewhere on the planet' is 'somewhere in your house'.

Who's upset? I use Firefox with an appropriate sprinkling of blockers. I use duckduckgo mostly but am using yahoo for a few months to help pay the bills. I only use anything google as a last resort if searches elsewhere have failed and then it will be in a private window. I'm not upset about any of those decisions.
“Are you comfortable with a ‘few’ seconds?”
Hmmm, do I value the data you're asking for above a 1-in-lots chance to win some clutter? Yep, I most certainly do. You can already contact me by email so the only reason for wanting more info is to sell that info.
This is officially my toys out of pram moment with Flash. I am sick of unselecting crapware, selecting bloody notify only, closing tabs before the sodding 'you may also be interested in' adverts appear and all the rest of the shit. I only still have it because TomTom insist on it. Poke it Adobe. Poke it TomTom if you don't get rid on Flash before my next renewal.

Good question, at 53 tonnes the payload on its own is pretty falcon heavy.

Just coming here to say much the same. Are they going to add another line for the next national campaign, and another for the next after that? What a dumbass suggestion.

Re: Concept OK, Execution Weak
If it's only any good for one source & one speaker set then yes Bluetooth does that just fine. If OTOH they've achieved multi room sync without the complete walletectomy associated with existing players, including the recent new players in the field, then it is novel.
Personally, since it says Google on the tin it is certain not to work if your router blocks it reaching the mothership so it's not the multi room solution I'm looking for.
There probably is no internal SATA connector as such, the external one the cable plugs into will be straight on the drive PCB & poke through the case. I suspect this having dismantled a Samsung/Seagate M3 last week in the hope of having a usable case after giving up on the drive. I was disappointed. The drive didn't work right from the day it arrived and like an idiot I did not keep the packaging so could not return it. 3 minutes with a ball pein hammer did wonders to relieve the tension caused by weeks of failed backup attempts.
And to disagree with steve gibson once again (why break a good habit), using a security package that isn't being maintained any more is not the most clever move.
Why? TrueCrypt 7.1a is one of the most heavily vetted lumps of code one could choose to run. It's weaknesses are known and in the opinion of those who understand crypto deeply not significant.
Let's look at 4 scenarios and think what would happen in each:
1) A new vuln in TrueCrypt 7.1a is found by a whitehat; It would be publicised widely immediately, it would be headline news absolutely everywhere. Sensible folk then stop using TC.
2) A new vuln in TrueCrypt 7.1a is found by a blackhat or TLA; they keep it quiet and use it.
3) A new vuln in <something else> is found by a whitehat; It would be reported to the devs, some time later a new version would likely appear, there would then be full disclosure one hopes and some press coverage.
4) A new vuln in <something else> is found by a blackhat or TLA; they keep it quiet and use it.
2 and 4 are identical so lets discount blackhat attacks. I would know I was vulnerable far quicker in 1 than in 3 so I choose 1. It also put's the onus on me to do something should I become vulnerable rather than relying on the author of <something else> which is the way I like it.

Lovely. Just lovely.
Re: Although a fairly accurate and amusing portrayal of LHR security...
"the real problem with airport security is the number of morons in the queue who have to be repeatedly told what to do. Thus slowing the whole process down."
Not to mention those too slow witted to take their wedding ring, watch etc off & put them in their laptop bag while queueing. Or those so poor at thinking ahead they wear badly fitting trousers needing a belt on the day they are travelling. Similarly hard soled shoes, wear flat ones that don't need to be removed. If the airport supplied liquids bag isn't up to your exacting standards bring your own.
My top level of ire is reserved for those idiots who when their bag is diverted into the search and swab row get angry with the poor sod who is just doing his job. All but one of these guys in the numerous times its happened to me has been careful and respectful of with my property. Like the scanners 1 in X bags gets a random search and swab.
They did do something with the wind gauge, they decided to ignore it. The automatic detector was taken offline and the meatsack on that console was going to do the monitoring if the 14:44 attempt had gone ahead.
As for the valves (two were sticking) they tried various things but I didn't hear them discuss your suggestion. Volunteers for the job might have been thin on the ground :-)
Re: And stories like that are why I oppose the reform of the Lords @ Shrimpling
I wouldn't. We already have one house full of self serving, power seeking lying bastards. What use is another house full? Until Blair screwed it over the Lords was as close as you could hope for to the Douglas Adams principle.
I'm still confused about your quote that you stood by in the comments to part #2
"I might write it for Docker, once Docker has things like FT, HA and vMotion, but I'm honestly not sure why I'd bother, Docker seems like more work than AWS and doesn't offer a fraction of the flexibility you get when using a proper hypervisor."
Why should containers do this, surely that is the job of the hypervisor? Indeed you state in this article that containers will add to and not replace established technology and will run perfectly inside the hypervisor. We all know what happens to a promising new technology when it tries to be all things to all men. Is it the cost of requiring both that keeps you from using containers 'till the above condition is met?
And still only Apple understand that 16:9 is shit for real work
Thanks to JDX and others for the paint.net tip, have one of these -->
Re: Does anyone really care
Yes. Your point about cash being anonymous is exactly why we should care. Given the way western society is moving it doesn't seem at all far fetched that one day good old anonymous cash will be withdrawn. There are many things in the UK that you used to be able to do with cash but now can only be done with traceable payment means. If I ask myself whether the UK govt would like to be able to track and trace all money movements the answer is a resounding hell yes.

Have you looked at the reviews? I suggest the ones on Laterooms as the trolls haven't waded in there yet.

A shit TV program most likely.
No sympathy on either side.

OTOH what a dumb thing for the Hotel to try, hellooooo Barbra!
How on earth is there 4 grands worth of options on that tested car? The touch screen thingumy was mentioned, I'm struggling to see what else could be removed. Are seats an optional extra?

I see what you did there and while it did bring a smile I'm afraid I can only award half marks because you should have used that line for 6th place.
Re: As ye sow, so shall ye reap
It's got nothing to do with the filesharing. AC's post was in response to Philip questioning why the unnamed party spent 17 months in prison for a crime judged worth 6 months. 11 months inside for no crime effectively.
I am a cynic
And of course, only a cynic would even suggest that the exposure of spying activities via Edward Snowden and others would be forcing governments to adopt formal channels to get what they want.
Oh yes indeedy a massive cynic all right.
What a simply lovely article 'Reg, bravo. I'm going to have a certain tune by Messrs A-Trak & Van Helden looping in my head all day.
The expedited process, called "Track One", was launched in 2011, and Google has bagged 875 patents through the scheme. That's 14 per cent of the 6,187 patents passed via fast track. The next highest is Huawei, with 147 Track One patents.
Please don't think I'm defending Google, I don't like many of their business practices. Nor am I defending Lee, I know no more of her than I have gleaned from this article. However, your highlighting the fact that Google got 6 times as many fast track patents as the next highest company has absolutely no meaning whatever without comparison to the total submissions and analysis of the timeline.
So Google had 14% of the granted fast track patents, how many did they submit? If Google submitted 875 requests the story is very different to if they submitted 8750. Are the Google submissions 14% of the total submissions or 0.14%? How does Googles grant/reject ratio compare to that of Huawei? When did they submit them is pretty relevant too. If they submitted the first 4000 patents lodged under the scheme the question becomes one of how were they able to react so quickly rather than why did they get so many passed.
Re: Just imagine
It does solve the problem of how to make a power source small enough to be carried by the shark. However one problem solved and another is created, you'll need a much bigger pond in your volcano lair. Hell the volcano is probably going to need some up sizing.
Re: Intelligent Space Supply Services from Spooky IntelAIgent Servers*
Phew, that was close. The first paragraph of an AMFM post made sense, deeply worrying for the state of my mental health. It didn't take much of the second for me to dismiss this as a mere statistical anomaly.
Normally in entertainment if you know with absolute certainly where the plot is going and what the ending will be be there's actually little entertainment in it. It is certain where Whisper is going though just how much circling they do before they gurgle out of sight isn't clear yet. Nevertheless I shall immensely enjoy the show, there hasn't been one so utterly predictable, deserving and amusing since Phorm.
Re: Pretty nasty
This will be interesting to watch as various legal systems will be involved. China will of course do absolutely sod all about the counterfit makers. The American legal system would, if FTDI were American, defend it to the ends of the earth. But FTDI is British and if there's one thing the Merkin legal system likes to do it's screw a foreign company. If I were Fred Dart I'd be closing down the US listed company, the UK legal & political systems won't offer it any help. The UK doesn't have a class action mechanism so the legal system here is unlikely to do anything for the consumers. FTDI might find themselves under the spotlight if they have breached the computer misuse act, if so there will be years of court procrastination that end with a slap on the wrist.
One thing is for sure, the only winners will be the
You are of course correct. But this is St Woz & St Jobs of whom you speak so I say again:
Thanks, that cheered me up immensely.
