Getting round the filters was always going to be trivial (for the younger generation)
The idea was to try and keep it quiet so parents could more easily be nagged into letting little Timmay have a PC in his room on the 'new safe internet' to 'do his homework'
Timmay is currently putting all other machine in the household on the bandwidth limited guest network and peering the prawns at full throttle
The only people in the household that are filtered are mum and dad...
In my day the playground had a black market in soft porn mags
These days it's more likely to be little post-it's of router settings, plugins, proxies and vpns
But at least the Tories can stand up and say 'We made the UK a a safer place for the children' and only ~30% of the voting population realise that to be bullshit
Daily Mail and Mothers Union, what have you done...
He's just paying homage to the meme?

Do I know you?
I was there about that time skanking the security guard I was on a school project to get to the top and then spending some happy hours throwing paper aeroplanes off the top (or as top as you could get)

And in the backend, the NSA pre-pop mugshots, you know, 'just in case'

I tried it, random lock ups with my SSD Raid OS Drive
After half a day or so digging around, for reasons, Microsoft tried to blame my choice of hardware
Windows 7 works fine
Let's launch a neodymium magnet satellite built with thrusters which are designed to guide it (and anything stuck to it) into the atmosphere in 2 years time.
Bagsy it lands in my back garden so I can claim the scrap
it was channeling the spirit of a Vel Satis
oh no, there's this really dangerous thing that's in a place you didn't think of
And the thing you thought was dangerous isn't
We can help you fix that and only for a medium amount of money

I wrote to my MP outlining why it's a ridiculous piece for the government to be cocking about with
(I even persisted in the consultation piece even though it was a disaster)
I got a 'won't someone think of the children' reply, seems to be the common response in all things from this government, how could anyone possibly not want to protect children from nasty things.
In other news I saw a report about a parent having to skip meals just so they could put a bowl of soup in front of their child due to cost of living overtaking salaries
Won't someone think of the children
Fucking government is the shits
20 grand for a cardboard box with a potato in it
Re: Mostly correct...
took out a broken link to something
added a working link to the same thing
arses to wikipedia, not worth my time either reading or writing
YaY, more pissing money up the wall by the incumbent government

3D added nothing but a headache
willing to bet
that something as simple as dialectizer breaks this let alone getting technical
If I was a corrie fan
I'd be happy to drop £5 into an online wallet at ITV and then burn though it against PPV as long as me fiver didn't expire and that I knew there was more stuff in the pipeline soon
Yeah, make sure they feature match the rest of the list as well
The ICO has an implementation of this live right now
See how nice it looks? /sarcasm
See how it fails gracefully when you click Continue without ticking the box /sarcasm
I like a bit of sarcasm
i think the ICO are doing us a favour by showing how crud it is, shame they dont sell stuff or carry advertising
Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start
good, cos I'm frikken sweltering
Another load of crap from people who are clueless
Puts netcard into promiscuous mode, goes to jail
Makes website drop a cookie, goes to jail
Does a cartoon of a tiger and a laaaydeeey, goes to jail
I hope someone, somewhere is writing a list
get off your arse, you techie agoraphobic
commenting on here is going to do nothing
Write to your MP suggesting they stop listening to these nutters
DO IT NOW!
Yeah, swearing, that's the fucking priority aint it
ah, found them...
obviously, but what *IS* an HPC ?
I've got something running on a 980x, are we talking bigger than that?
I was lost
The Hasty Pudding Cipher ?
wtf is an HPC ?
Did he just crawl the sitemaps?
wow, impressive ... erm... wait... no...
First rule of Stoneghost, don't talk about Stoneghost
It's blatantly obvious
that any mechanism that can be implimented will immediately be bypassed by 14 year old boys in their bedroom on a PC that their parents think is 'safe'.
The knowledge of how to (offshore VPN a connection) will immediately be shared and passed around to lots and lots of other 14 year old and younger and the whole mechanism will be rendered redundant withing 2 weeks.
The only people left being filtered will be the parents, who should have known better in the first place
I'd suggest contracting a VPN in the Ukraine, or using Tor
People who think this kind of filtering is a good idea are damning themselves to having to learn about stuff they've got no hope of understanding if they think they can stop little Johnny from looking at porn with ISP filtering
might say that the ICO are toothless and that the fine is tiny and inconsistent to the crime committed
Others might think that by not wringing the parasite dry there might be some cash in the assets which will be distributed amongst the wasted costs claimants which Judge Birss has opened the way for
wow, that's quite aggressive and personal
I guess it's only a matter of time until The Register gets a Stig-a-like
Cars are boring
very nice HW
I've got one, it's amazing.
My non-technical partners first exclamation on having a go was 'oh, it's so much faster than an iPad'
fsck the title
This is gonna be awesome
That don't look 3D to me
it's because no one actually wants 3D?
May be they realise it's just a fad pushed by tech corps as 'the next big thing'
just saying like
this can only end well
I was wondering if it was the same one, is it the same one as they broke on that awful The One Show as well?
If ever there was a time when the phrase 'cutting edge' should be avoided, this was it.
Hope they're backing it up somewhere
