Maybe we should Open Source Government.

I know fuck all about encryption but it would seem that when FOSS gets found with its pants down the hands go up and they, or others, sort it. ITMT 'Dave The Dim' relies on such software to keep his agenda secret. WhatsThat 'Dave The Dim'? Did WhatsApp have a Zero Day? That's a bit of a shame. Maybe your script kiddie masters at GCHQ will tell you about it after your have been pwnd.

Oooo I Know!!!1

Do a wearable tag that tracks you across stores and notes your purchases then build up a big database of stuff and use it to target your future purchases. It can be linked to your phone to send sms messages and smear adverts all over your browser and have adaptive bill boards or milk cartons that go beep when you pass them and your fridge has noted your old carton has gone mouldy and other life experience changing shite. Fooking brilliant. I'll just get me coat, check it for any such shit and rip it out.

Re: Regrettably?

hope the major losses are confined to those not at the coal face

You appear to be missing an Icon. Probably the fault of El Reg.

The major losers, apparently $400 million worth, were 'investor idiots'... that's your pension money. The 'data miners', at the coal face, got paid a pretty penny for their efforts out of that $400 million.

Perhaps you might consider setting up a Phorm Shareholders Action Group.

When I switch off No-Script I get...

Dear Parent, We created this site for you and your family to obtain more information about Kinder. To view this site you must be over 12 years old, or have the permission of a parent... and then get asked to enter my date of birth. Where's the cookie warning?

Bugger being 9yrs old I'll haxxor that one by saying I was born 25/12/2000....

"Kinder Surprise contains the taste of Kinder chocolate, with a surprise and toy in every single egg. The combination of these three elements creates a world of fun and entertainment that helps children to develop their imagination while reassuring mothers at the same time."

1) Mmmm Shit Chocolate....

2) WTF is this yellow plastic thing..? Must be the surprise.

3) Oh its got some other bits of plastic in it.

Just a moment. Wish my Mom and Pop looked like that.. Yo Parents! Why are you not like these folks on the Kinder Web Site? Hey, Compared to the other kids I'm quite ugly.. maybe I should go full on bulimic, join ISIS or get my parents to Buy Me Kinder Surprise so as I can learn about 'Fun and Entertainment'..'Develop My Imagination'.. and 'Reassure My Mother'.

Sigh, perhaps I should just log in to 'The Router' and edit the XML so I can point its DNS somewhere else so I can do some fucking homework.

Bollocks

The "best" bit of the Kinder egg was always the yellow capsule that the "surprise" came in.

I might 'almost' get your drift but...

There is absolutely nothing of merit in respect of a Kinder Egg. A measly bit of 'chocolate' surrounding some bits of dysfunctional and malformed plastic. They are the failed confectioners equivalent of worse than Christmas Crackers.

Whilst I might dislike my parents for other reasons they never bought me one, they must have loved me, but I made the mistake of trying one out for myself when I left home.

"Here you go Camilla. Kinder Surprise."

"Thanks Mum... Uhm what was the Surprise?"

"It's got toys in it."

"We might have to have a discussion about the definition of 'toys'."

"You have to use your imagination."

"Perhaps you can help out with that imagination thang...?"

"Well..."

Re: John Oliver

Cheers but unless they can do it for numpties I would be, am, a lost cause. If Bruce wishes to make it simple then, for the moment, I can get as far as multiplying two primes is easier than factoring them... which is more or less 'the shit'.

In terms an idiot politician might understand.. If I take two prime numbers and multiply them together then there is really not much chance of you figuring what those two prime numbers were in the first place.

Of course, as an idiot politician, what you should say back to me is that you know your omelette was made with fresh slightly beaten eggs, grated cheese from a Monty Python sketch, a knob of butter, and pinch of salt with a sprinkling of nutmeg, black pepper and freshly chopped chives along with one irritating fuck called Jamie Oliver.

Now, ignoring various other ingredients, demand that Jamie Oliver plucks the chicken out of his arse.

Re: Airbags

For our purposes, these are considered to measure 50 metres long by 25 metres wide and with a depth of 2 metres, containing 2,500 cubic metres of water or, in this case, liquid hydrogen and LOX.

does not quite fit the bill but the question becomes...

Would it be possible, with care, to fill any swimming pool with the required ultimately combustible and stoichiometric mix of Liquid Hydrogen and Liquid Oxygen but, on the assumption that the liquids might be immiscible and can be maintained as liquids despite the temperature differential float one layer on top of the other, add a straw along with a cherry, slice of lemon and a couple of olive's and then, assuming a cool blue colour, upload a picture of Lester sitting by the pool with a big smile on his face in his y-fronts speedos with a "12.5 Bulgarian Airbags Equivalent" tattoo on his 'gut'?

Unfortunately in the Political World ten times out of ten Sophistry trumps over Logic/Science so we will just forget that in the Real World Logic/Science grinds Sophistry to dust eleven times out of ten so it is OK to cripple your own capabilities because no-one reads Wikipedia.

Whut?

I ate Taco Bell. Let me slip my penis up Austin Texas. Apple Pie... On these things, and Great Americans 'Woot Woot Woot', Obama is certain and then..... mumble mumble mumble.

Mumble... Big Data..

Mumble... Medical Records for research..

Mumble... Voting and why they are voting so we can get them to vote the right way..

Mumble... Making sure Activists are monitored.

So.. The reason I am here is to Big Up Texas "Go Texas, Go Texas, Go Texas Taco Bell. I'll have fries with that. Woot Woot Woot.. but, like hey, we fuck up on a regular basis and the only way we can fix this is to get you little people called 'citizens' involved"

.. So I set up a web site to collect your big health data and this was a bit embarrassing for me because I know fuck all about apt-get install apache and that html shit, although my kids know how to do Banners in GeoCities, so I spunked loads of money on some consultants so they could fuck it over... and they did.

I remember my childhood listening to the Rooskies talking about Left Boot production on that radio thang. Anyway.. having personally fucked it up, with assistance, I asked my mates who had fucked it up in the first place how to unfuck it and, Bruce Willis was not interested, so we came up with, and pissed an extra shitload of money on, a SWAT team.

That's SWAT!!! not SWOT. Fuck analysis we go in with Mini-Guns Blazing. Go America Go America Go America. 'Woot Woot Woot'.

Any way.. so we asked Google and FaceBook to sort things out for our Viet Nam veterans and the rest of the good old boys who got fucked over by us waging war against that Left Boot Producing idiot Putin all over the planet.

So these dudes are really kind of cool and I am up to speed with the foo-bar thing but they need to be institutionalised. Err,, that is to say I do not have a fucking clue and that Zuckerfuck needs to ask himself whether the loaded shotgun I am pointing at his fucking face is loaded...

Uhm cough.

So what we need is people who know shit to stop trying to tell people who don't know shit how shit works and just make it fucking work the way I want it to work. So you are invited to become engaged to do it or I'll throw my toys out of the pram. O maybe not.

America Today asks its Geeks to set up shit so no-one else can use it without America having full access to their shit and stop the nutty side of Islam developing counter measures. It's not enough to take out ISIL with Tomohawk missiles.

We need to develop Genetic Warheads based on our Big Medical Data to stop the fuckers from having children capable of thinking beyond being capable of flipping burgers... and we need that for our children as well.

We need the industry to use their ad-spaffing technology to kill off any kind of thought and also help you idiots make the right choice in respect of who you are going to vote for using their Big Data Thang. It seriously fucks me off that you do not turn out to vote because last time I checked I am Dudellicious so what the fuck is your fucking problem?

Do my ears poke out too much or what?

Look.. You Austin Texas Folks here are incredibly talented. 'Woot Woot Woot'... ahhh come on give me a 'Woot Woot Woot'....

.. but the problem is your Texan Leaders have fucked up big time because you are fucking Texans. Everything around here is supposedly just so fucking big, and rightly so, that you do not pay attention to idiots outside of your locality.

As we all know there are 52 states..

Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas Austin Texas

and the rest of the World, including Kansas is just some Islamofascist Fantasy.

So What we need is for you Fat Texan Bois to take your heads out of your fat fucking arses and sign up to FaceBook so you can have the right to vote.

"Go Bama Go Bama Go Bama" 'Woot Woot Woot'.

Yo!! Look, you Dumb Texan Fucks check the weather on your phone. We've got satellites that do that sort of shit and Verizon that checks where you are so as we can direct you to the nearest umbrella shop... Then we get celebrities to predict the weather and fuck that one up as well. Fuck me, we also use economists to predict the fucking economy... Or you can look outside the window.

So.. anyway. What I am saying here is we need an ISIL free economy where the Muslims get to flip burgers but we keep them out of the country so Taco Bell and my mates in the Ad-Spaffing industry sort stuff out with The Big Data Thang so you idiots know how to vote and your children can become top skill in burger flipping.

And you know what. That Economy Thang. Truth of the matter is it's all been changed. Hey.. like sorry about the fuck ups in respect of loss of your personal data to ISIL and the bankers fucking over the economy but it is all Kool coz we printed more money, told them not to do it again and I am going to introduce a new free 'identity fraud protection' web site... but this time it will work properly using your FaceBook login.

Oh.. and it was all our own fault for not giving our authorities enough money to take on the lawyers as paid for by the other side to enforce the law. I guess we just fucked up because we are all clueless MBA majors, did not write the law stuff down properly and some of us need the odd $XXXXXXXXX from the lobbyists so we can garner your votes.

..... Gives Up.

What fucking ever,

Reminder: How to get a grip on your files, data that Windows 10 phones home to Microsoft

Camilla Smythe

I had some nice Indian Chappies....

From Microsoft phone me up to fix stuff for me. Apparently my computer was reporting all sorts of stuff back to base and they were really sorry about that. Having gone through Windows R we had to use SupremoControl, which I was informed was Microsofts free version of something that sorts stuff out. Then some kind bloke called LogMeIn paid a visit and installed Chrome for me so I suppose Microsoft and Google must be mates. Anyway, long story short, once everything was fixed I filled out my details on a Microsoft provided form and was told the £49 fix it fee would be waived and I would be credited with £690 for all the stress they had caused me. They sorted that one out through Microsoft's preferred banking service, Western Union, and were even kind enough to set up the account for me so they could transfer the money. I am presently talking to my bank about how they should be using Western Union because my banks rubbish software appears to have taken £800 out of my account rather than crediting it and my computer does not really work properly any more ever since I visited their online banking service. Anyway, at least my computer is not reporting much if anything back to Microsoft because my mates from India have not phoned back to say so so everything must be cool... RESULT!!1!!

Linux Mint forums hacked: All users urged to reset passwords

Re: Not the only problem

Thanks for referring me back to the previous article. It would seem 'addressed' means someone moaned about it. Glad to be corrected.

Hard disks with even more then 40 Megabyte of space are available.

Thanks for the 'hard' figure. According to you 20 Megabytes of Linux on a Hard Disk is given over to symlinks. Does that include the space used on the hard disk that says where they are?

Perhaps you can provide some grep thing that says where they all live so next time something does not work I can add another one in the appropriate directory, usr/bin, pointing to the other one in a different directory, /etc/usr/var/bin that will redirect it to the other one in /foo/bar/etc/usr/share/bin and so on.

That's just indicative of the complete cluster fuck that the Linux/Unix directory structure is, why naming conventions are not and 50% of my hard disk space under Linux is occupied by symlinks.

Ho-Hum.. Shit, that should not happen.. happens.

Fair enough they suggest that their 'suppositories' are 'safe' but that is where 'The Gold' would be.

Wise, after the event, change passwords and don't use the same one all over the place advice but you have to hope that that they have adhered to that one themselves.

Of course I realise, hope, that given their background they probably do but falling foul of a Wordpress Hack, unless it was 'zero day', raises some concerns... Not that I can play 'Holier Than', unintentional pun. just spotted it after I typed it.

I would not wish to FUD but I do hope that they have sanitised their own access to the 'suppositories' and made quadruple sure that nothing untoward has gone on.

..... Still waiting for the Password Reset E-Mail?

I should resist the temptation to say I'm not overly bothered if those details got 'stolen'. I may be stupid but using Linux of itself has made me more aware about security and, in part according to my limitations, given me the tools to implement it for myself.

Oh.... and just in case it is still all shit layered on top of shit.

What happened to the "Linux is malware-free" claim?

There is a suggestion in the comments section on the site that the redirect to the Bogus ISO was the result of an attack on a vulnerable Wordpress install.

I’ll ask this question, without knowing the intrinsic details, or any specific details other than what has been posted above; did the breach have anything to do with the fact that you’re running WordPress?

Best wishes and thanks for the heads up.

How do you know?

Because, occasionally, I have to write a 'Hello World' program in your latest flavour of shit and it falls over at the first attempt to run it because your shit was layered on someone else's shit so you had a shit clue as to what was meant to happen because all the other layers of shit were layered upon everyone else's layer of shit and they did not tell you how the shit was meant to work because they did not understand the shit below their shit and now you have layered your shit on top of the previous shit you have no idea what the fuck is meant to happen but Vinod will spunk all of your pension money on any little shit who appears to give some semblance of his shit based on the other shit supposedly working such that Vinod can make some cash and then every other shit writer gets to layer more shit upon the new shit developed by the new little shit.

You just layer shit on top of others layers of shit and Vinod et al rewards those who manage to write shit on top of shit that gives the best short term return so when you come to rinse and repeat the next batch is layering their shit on top of the previous layer of shit and it is shit all the way down.

First time I met a DataBase, back in Mumble Something and Four it was broken.... looks like 'we' have not made much progress since then.

Re: Strange to say

Have your doctors told you about your sex-change operation and post-op treatment? I think they should.

Well, assuming... My GP, after some discussion, signed me up for the sex change so I turned up on the prescribed day and had my knob turned into a fanny. Unfortunately,

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/11790711/Boots-Tesco-and-Superdrug-to-get-access-to-NHS-medical-records.html

I had requested that my medical records about my new cunt should not be shared and Mr Manning, not Bradley, suggests that the request has been ignored.

Still, I suppose if my Gold Orifice goes wrong you can still slide your Silver Badge up my Brown hole or perhaps someone from Tesco will contact myself directly to offer a better treatment outside of the NHS for the puss[y] problem... having being given access to my GP's 'hard one' without my permission,

Did I mention Rape?

and not telling my GP about the possibility of such treatment.

Of course, as before, no doubt that assumes my Insurance Policy checks out under a cross check such that Tesco and Asda can bid to fix stuff for me.

Oh, and don't worry your pretty little penis. I'm a Lesbian.

Strange to say

But I just, did not, get a spam e-mail from someone offering me my medication at lower than the pre-paid prescription price along with what looks like a good deal on Viagra. They also suggested that, based on snouting about in my medical records as held by my Doctor, that there were better treatments available for my bowel cancer than my Doctor was presenting to me because they had not told my Doctor about them and, given their additional research into my insurance policies, I would be able to have that and the prostrate thing sorted out almost immediately along with an even better deal on Viagra.

Re: China! Shows! The! World! How! Fusion! Is! Done!

Let me put it another way in order to demonstrate that I do not have a clue.

You wank about getting your Plasma up to Ignition 'whatever' and cannot even control that shit in order to achieve it and then you expect to be able to control it when it 'blows up'.

Hah Hah

Hah Hah Hah

... Then you want to tag a Steam Generator on its back end?

Uhm.. No they didn't.

Doing 'Fusion' involves Doing 'Fusion'.. not getting things arbitrarily 'hot' for some misplaced definition of 'hot'.

"On Friday the Chinese Academy of Sciences announced that its boffins had created the 102-second plasma burn in its Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) at Hefei, capital city of east China's Anhui Province."

No they didn't fucking achieve a 'Plasma Burn' they just maintained some shit at what they thought was 50 Million Kelvin for 'a bit' and then Suddenly Nothing Fucking Happened.
