.... 'Data security is our top priority' ?
"... wildly overestimate what constitutes a “knob” of butter."
It depends what you're used to handling.
I think that needs to be re-worded. Perhaps it's open source code that implements a patented technique or method? I assume they intend to charge license fees for commercial use.
As I remember from his book, the Colonel told the idiot, "Stop boring the arse off tired soldiers with your stupid fairy stories. By the way, I'm a friend of Lord Northcott and he's never heard of you."
"... some staff were promised a significant bonus upon completion. ..... and the bonus wasn't forthcoming. ..... Norse agreed to stop withholding the bonuses after one of the programmers threatened to sue."
Every competent manager knows that it's money which motivates people to do a good job and that it's easy to lie to technical staff and get away with it.
That would have been £38 on ebay + £24 p&p from the USA but the supplier has sold out. I also felt the urge to own one.
Note: If the event is only for US people, then it's the ability to 'soder' that they need :)
That was a clenched fist compliment.
If I store my private documents under rocks in the park, I can't complain if people find them and tell other people where to find them. I should store them under lock and key somewhere.
I realise that it goes beyond this with 'unauthorised' copies being made and stored under other rocks in different parks, but when will people learn not to store stuff on public facing websites?
I'm sure that all Gmail is scanned, automatically, and targetted ads are placed according to keywords. The use of the word 'intercept' implies that Google somehow went out of their way to get their hands on the emails. In fact, Google 'handles' everyone's Gmail. Is Apps For Education somehow supposed to be different?
'Mutti' is the German word for 'Mum'. Can any German commentards tell us if this is used affectionately or in a different way?
I get media/tv people mixed up all the time.
"while(status == SUCCESS)"
That's assuming that getStatus() returns a 1 or not_1 as appropriate. Often, it's assumptions all the way down, especially if other people have been writing/modifying other parts of the system.
Wikipedia! it tells you :) It's an weather phenomenon involving cyclones moving from sea to land and getting stronger. It could be that he means that any problems intensify when the kit is installed in its final site. However, I suspect that the spokesman was using the expression as a euphemism for a vast quantity of crap.
I'd have thought that a Vulture brand saddometer would go up to 11.
The Patrician used to pay very careful attention to anyone who scored well in the Ankh Morpork Times crossword puzzle, for that reason. He sometimes went so far as to 'persuade' the compiler to put certain clues/solutions in to see if any spies allowed their pride to overcome their caution.
After three years of using only Linux Mint, I've found that Windows 7 Pro (I bought a recycled OEM license) is not a replacement for Linux Mint and is also a pain in the arse.
Did they use Tor and Bitcoin for all their interactions and transactions or did they get careless and sloppy?
This has been done. I raised a similar point some time ago and it is available in the form of a USB 'dongle' that contains a noisy zener diode (if I remember correctly). I can't remember when and in which article someone gave the link to its maker's website.
If you Google "USB random number generator", there are lots of hits. The bits are out there.
If many people on the same mobile network are getting 'free' mobile video, isn't that a strain on the network, giving poor quality for the video and poor delivery for other applications? Does anyone have experience of this service?
"... the majority of those younger than I are utter twats with no ability to see anything outside of their own narrow experience."
Like the ones who shut down the account of a woman called Isis, because she was obviously a terrorist sympathiser?
"Cookie is an English borrow word from the Dutch ..."
Actually, it's called a 'loan' word. That's ok though because (as I understnd it) the Dutch language use of "lend/borrow/loan" doesn't map onto the English usage.
Then again, we did take it, with no intention of returning it, so is it a theft word?
Oh, .... wait a minute.
Not frozen, no.
"Dictaphone ... encrypted .... locked to remote access."
They have some fancy dictaphones nowadays. (Am I behind the times?)
"lost in the home of member of staff"
The kids didn't need a Christmas present that year.
A quick Google and a look in Wikipedia will tell you everything you need to know. We live in interesting times.
I've been caught out by that. Why doesn't the compiler or some pre-processor spot it?
"Unless a judge has explicitly allowed it you aren't supposed to publish any of the court proceedings from within."
Criminal trials are public events (in the UK) and what is said and done there (if "newsworthy") is reported in the newspapers the next day or sooner. Jeremy Hunt didn't report what was said; he gave his public opinion of the case in such a way that the judge decided it might prejudice the trial.
I have the Dropbox client on my Linux Mint machine and also have Insync (an independent Google Drive client). Both of them give me a synchronised folder on my machine. I used to have a Copy client which is a similar free cloud storage offering but I never used it so I took it off.
I have the Dropbox folder inside the Google Drive folder so that the contents of the Dropbox folder get dual cloud storage backup.
I tried it three years ago; it worked and it still works.
Let me get my codebook........ 'If the decorative bow is pink, you attack at dawn'. Send me another message!
"One force lists the colour maroon which other forces don’t recognise, while others disagree on whether a hair colour is brown-auburn or simply auburn," she said.
I think that Dulux, or Crown or B&Q could help them out with that. (He had Autumn Glade hair with a touch of Moonmist at the sides.)
"What we need is a network of networks, allowing information to be transmitted more easily.”
It's called .....'the internet'. Go cloud, get failovers and multiple redundancy with geographic diversity and sign-on anywhere with VPN and world-class security. My consultancy invoice is in the post.
I make my own paint drying videos for private parties. They show a variety of paint types of various colours on different surfaces in different environmental conditions. They're much more interesting and can be quite exciting.
When I signed up to Paypal, about thirteen years ago, they made a point that you needed two items of information to log in: your sign-up email address and your password; hence it was very secure. I soon realised that they give your Paypal sign-in email address to whoever you send payment to, so they can contact you I assume. (As far as I can tell, they no longer make that statement on their website.)
Eventually, you'll get advertising spam and phishing attempts directed at the email address you used, depending on which people you send Paypal payments to.
"... take a back seat to improving the health care."
I think you mean, "take a back seat to increasing the profits."
It mentions how Fiat Chrysler 'saw the light' regarding vehicle systems security.
Does anyone have a link to this list? (I want to put them in my hosts file to protect myself.)
I'm not surprised that these exist but who in their right mind would want to install it?
The unreadable in pursuit of the unprofitable.
"I will be partnering with him day and night ..."
"All commercial TV in Sweden is actually broadcast from outside Sweden and the companies based outside as well."
Is that because of tax advantages or other reasons?
All bananas in any kind of office go mouldy and funny after a couple of days. It's good to get some use out of them.
Im sure the Faceborg will develop some valuable skills and techniques from this exercise.
By giving me £400,000 to do the job.
You don't have to use your real name, as long as it's a believable one.
Yes, if it's 'the internet' that's being given problems from a PC, then have the PC blocked at the ISP. Lot's of people use their computer for activities that don't need internet access so at least they can carry on doing 'internal' work.
However, if a court order is needed, then someone will have to do the work of applying for the order and take the responsibility of providing judges or magistrates with truthful evidence. Would Microsoft take that responsibility? Would anybody here want them to?
"Because the report headlined with Apple ..."
Did we read different articles?
How's that anonymity working out for you?
If I download and install/run a .msi or .exe file, doesn't the same binary code run regardless of whether I have an Intel or AMD CPU? So does this only affect performance if I compile my own benchmarks?
"A spokeswoman for the hospital said patient safety is its highest priority ..."
Does the US have any kind of subsidy for electricity generation from 'renewables', where you get paid more than the standard price when you feed your generated electricity into the grid? I'm wondering what the capital repayment period is for a project like that and the ongoing ROI.
"While the museum is demanding charges of indecent exposure, ..."
"Ganesh apparently used Free Basics to double his crop yields and get a better deal for his produce."
People in Kenya had similar experiences when cheap mobile phone communications with text messaging became available. This was because of an increase in communication between people over previously inconvenient distance. It's not about accessing internet websites, it's about people being able to communicate with each other anytime they want to and need to.
