"Some flaws, including nasty ones, have persisted for years due in part to contractors having a four-year reprieve in 2010 from addressing any security flaws while the station was repurposed from a research project to the JPSS."
The contractors who fitted my double glazing made a total mess of the window for the small bedroom, it leaks rain and the wind blows through it. I don't expect them to fix it for a while because I'm trying to repurpose that room for a personal study and storage room.
I think Sony have a patent on that. I remember the old click-wheel with rose tinted fondness.
"The attackers check the user agent to work out whether a target is running a Windows or a Mac machine, and redirect them accordingly."
Damn, I regret switching to Linux now. Would it help if I disabled AdBlock and Request Policy and NoScript and FlashBlock?
This particular request may have been craftily designed so that any reasonable court would find that there is no threat to security in requiring GCHQ to reveal the information. It's a long term 'thin end of the wedge' tactic to set a precedent.
Next: an FOI request for the average number of miles traveled by GCHQ employees on 'company business', broken down by air/train/car miles, in order to determine if they are being responsible about carbon emissions.
There may be laws in China but from what I've read the enforcement of the law against you depends on how well connected you are and how well connected your 'adversary' may be. This study needs some case examples.
Does anyone have personal experience or good information about strength and integrity of enforcement in various countries?
Did they have some skin/scales to examine?
The clerks are probablly penalised if any fake notes appear in their till. Control by fear does work, sadly.
I thought the entire point of BCC was that nobody else (apart from you, the sender) knew that they had been sent a copy? Have I misunderstood something?
People who talk about what is 'cool' (or not) and argue about what is 'cool' are definitely not 'cool'. I'll tell you what 'cool' is; .... oh .....
How about a 'family' chess set where the King/Queen are Dad/Mum and favourite aunts and uncles are knight, bishop and rook. Cousins and siblings can be individual pawns; or whatever. I'm sure there are some people who would pay serious money if the end result was of good technical quality.
Jack Gilbert has a neat and tidy beard that matches his eyebrows and his hair (just like mine does). As such, I have a lot of admiration for him and I think that you should cut him some slack.

I wonder if they take into account that the user may be Polish (etc) and is using a password this is perfectly pronounceable for them.
I'm on my way.
I assume they had fourty lawyers working on the IPO.
I weigh 68kg (I'm 5'10" so my BMI is about 22) and regard myself as 'normal'. Am I actually 'skinny'?
" ... open source crows ... "
Do you think of them as flocking and feasting on the fruit of the Apple tree? You've got some deep symbolism going on in there. Lie down and tell us more.
The truly sad part is that many people can't recognise a parody and really do make an association between the original creator and the scene expressed in the parody. Hence the concerns of the original creators.
I suggest that you start with a picture of your naked feet. You can then build on that in a manner and over a timescale that you feel comfortable with. [creepy voice] Join us.
I just had a look at that judgement - it was about low flying military aircraft in 'navigable airspace' under the 'minimum safe altitude'. Causby was claiming damages for injury to livestock due to intense stress on them. The court determined that the government had taken an 'easement', a property right defined in law, which they have the power to do but which they must pay compensation for. That judgement would not seem to apply to this situation on a variety of counts.
 Tom beat me to it.
"The creator of the video said that footage was shot at the FAA-approved altitude of under 400 feet and was timed for shooting when no workers were at the site."
Did he ask the site owner's permission though?
"we are aggressively gathering facts at this point while working to protect customers."
That's " ... frantically gathering facts while working to cover our backsides."
.... each tank could be self powered.
The principles of logical thought, planning and abstract construction could easily be taught using BASIC and are in fact a necessity to get most BASIC programs working eventually. The fault finding and bug hunting skills would quickly follow on from the children's early attempts; with adequate teacher guidance of course. All this would give children a regular 'slap in the face', which is what they need to get used to if they want to function in the adult coding world.
You get an upvote from me.
"... so-called "social" networking addiction."
You've posted many comments here Jake and you've often told us details of yourself and your domestic/personal activities and interests. This could be a slippery slope situation.
"The assailant was likely to face a well-resourced investigation by the US authorities."
Are we using that word for data 'thieves' now?
Predicting the future isn't too difficult, is it?
... you can put a bit of cold water into the pot before you pour freshly boiled water into it. This is how I make coffee and various teas. My kettle cost £10 about 10 years ago and if it breaks I can walk to the shop and buy a comparable replacement. I'm even capable of bringing water to 100degC in a pan on a cooker if all else fails.
My inner engineer feels a sense of wonder whenever I consider what's happening up/out there.
Politicians do need privacy to conduct negotiations. So do industrialists, lawyers, bankers, road sweepers and lorry drivers, among others. Then again, the security services would never spy on politicians, would they?
"An interspecies snog gets complaints??"
No, a same sex snog got complaints; nobody seems to be worried about an interspecies marriage/partnership. That in itself is a bit strange.
So you think you can launch me and not put me high
So you think you can launch me and not let me fly
Oh Soyuz - can't do this to me Soyuz
Just gotta get up - just gotta get right up from here
Ah, but that's for your own safety and for emission controls compliance.
Maybe death by snu-snu if you're well behaved?
You can get a better idea of that thing here:
It's interesting but would need some training and awareness to avoid falling over backwards.
I suspect that in real life he's more camp than most men.
I think that scattered reflections would be more or less halved in brightness, as would randomly polarised ambient light. There can be all sorts of complications with using polarised filters for viewing so maybe it got too difficult to ensure adequate vision through them.
Also, if the indicator light is close to the headlamp, you won't be able to see if the indicator is flashing, as I've found out on a few occassions at night.
I got mine from a bay run by people with eyepatches and wooden legs. There were thousands of people there at the same time as me.
I don't understand that part. Is it instead of the jail sentence and he can avoid jail if he completes it?
If an 'influential' person doesn't have a parody account, then I don't think they can be taken seriously.
This may be an unintentionally good tactic for ISIS and any others who switch to using anonymous services. Governements, of many different shades, would jump on that activity as a good reason to ban such services and label any user as a terrorist sympathiser. The admins (and podmins) of such services would then be 'terrorist enablers' and the general public would be glad to see them hunted down and put out of operation. The screws would tighten even more on our freedoms of movement and expression, hence leading to greater dissatisfaction in society.
Be careful not to fly too far away from the sun.
An internal network used to store and generate sensitive and classified documents has an internet connection that was used to download and view a .pdf 'news article'? Or, an idiot brought a USB stick in with some reading material he waned to catch up on? Maybe they should spend more time reading The Register (on a separate network).
If Apple doesn't have a production line, how do they make iPhones and Macs? This is so confusing.
Upvoted for an amusing parody of redneck illeracy. Oh, wait a minute ....
As a Linux noob (1 year with MINT), I used mdadm to set up a RAID-0 array using two partitions from the two SSDs in my desktop PC. The documentation and advice is readily available online in tech notes and forums. You have to remember to update the initialisation files (there's a command for that) so it incorporates the RAID array into the filesystem at boot.
It might rhyme and have a jaunty rhythm in Arabic. You never know.
