I'm curious about the "unidentified government vehicle"
They really don't know which government owns it?

My shower heads are still the originals, it's the hoses that keep needing replacement!
You had it lucky! Our printers used slabs of stone, now THEY were noisy!
But tell kids about it these days...
Why not send it to someone else's fax machine, and get them to post it back?
Except that USB to serial converters don't give you real RS232 voltage levels. You're lucky to get 5V.
It usually doesn't matter... usually.
to move to NY and open a fresh fruit drinks stand called "Limey Drinks"?
Perhaps he's a grocer?
The one with the amusing book about pandas in the pocket.
Has anyone else seen this cartoon, featuring a Mafiosi-looking winner, and a rather dead opponent?
But how does this relate to RFC 2549?
I wonder why that is? In other news:
Robbers target banks
Ursines defecate in arboreal locations
Pope confirms his Catholicism
I can tell you're having a whale of a time.
Yes, one is slow, random and has unplanned consequences. The other is fast, highly specific, and has unplanned consequences.
They were pretty brave to admit it was completely wasted!
I can imagine the RFID company's business plan:
2. Sell Expensive pilot RFID student tracking system to School
3. School finds system is ineffective and scraps it
4. Buy back hardware at half-price
5. Make unspecified "software improvements"
6. Double Expensive, increment School
7. Until School too scared to admit money is wasted
As the locals only speak American, I guess they are trying to attract tour groups of English country squires. Maybe they can lay on a bit of fox hunting too?
The pink coat, if you could be so kind. No! The Hunting Pink coat! Look, it's the red one, peasant!
Culturally, the Amazons are their myth, and European invaders later named the S. American river after it.
I'll get my coat... spear and shield.
Many fake bank websites are only up for a short time. They grab the login credentials of the early victims, and move on before the site is reported and investigated. This seems to allow them to skip the step of breaking into a vulnerable machine to set up the fake site, as long as they take steps to make their connection untraceable.
But that's what Duct Tape is for.
The Titanic wants its collision-avoidance system back.
Then SKYNET is only a teenager... eventually it will get through the rebellious stage, settle down and... oh, dear!
So why haven't you got more upvotes?
Well, I'd speculate that fiction is essential for intelligence. Isn't the basis of intelligence modeling the external environment, predicting the results of changing parameters and selecting a desirable outcome?
Come to think of it, lack of ability to identify fiction might explain why teenagers get locked up for rants online.
Then they should divert the funds to improve the targeting to spies to persuade/trick potential enemies into including transponders on their missiles. Problem solved.
But their molecules have rounded corners.
There's plenty of room for confusion, the RR Merlin's space-flight capabilities are well known: http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Spitfire
The one with the sonic screwdriver in the pocket. No, I'll leave the fez.
On 27 June, the HK gov announced he would be refused entry because the US had finally told them his passport had been revoked.
And that one stallion was, no doubt, ridden by Mitochondrial Eve.
@breakfast, start taking your "Pliocene Stable" script round Hollywood, it's a winner!
(yes, I know the timing's all wrong... never stopped Hollywood before)
Does it deliver milk?
Seriously, good one guys!
but they divided the fine by a thousand billion to make it more effective.
It might not be illegal in the US, but it is illegal to do it here, and most other places outside the US. Why should we hand the grass over to the gang?
"If you really want unbreakable message security, buy a pigeon"
Does RFC 1149/RFC 2549 support BGP? And does subverting it involve a pigeon femme fatale?
(I was going to go all pretentious and translate pigeon to French, but it already is).
Yes, once you're identified as suspect they'll concentrate on rubber hose cryptography.

Wrong! Hong Kong is outside the Great Firewall, and we intend to keep it there. I can search for and find pictures of someone standing in front of a tank, or the shenanigans of communist party officials whenever I want.
The question of who is watching me do it is entirely different. On current evidence, assuming the answer is "Everyone!" would be wise (though they must be very bored doing it).
to cancel my order of sharks, but the lasers I'll need, and the cranial mounts will need a redesign.
So Cambridge cycle paths are designed for toddler/recreation use and poorly designed for people who appreciate bicycles as a fast, environmentally-friendly means of transport. Would you design a motorway with that type of intersection?
More features? How about tweets from the reactor core?
icon? "I'm feeling hot"
Sometimes called the paternoster, with open cars so you can jump on and off. Runs continuously, but generally thought to be too dangerous nowadays. That was the only reason I went into the Arts Tower in Sheffield.
I guess you could have really nasty accidents with a 500m paternoster, that cable isn't going to stop quickly for anything.
As one of the 900, I have to be honest and admit the rain was not torrential. Persistent drizzle is more accurate.
Protesting in HK is very polite. Many were using whistles, but, as the march entered a shopping mall, we were requested to not whistle inside, and everyone complied.
HK's Chief Executive has now said that the case will be dealt with according to HK law. If the US makes an extradition request, then the courts and appeals could take three years. We will be watching.
Unless you're using the version of Wireshark that ignores traffic with the Evil Bit set (RFC 3514).
I guess he hasn't been following the news about Sami al-Saadi threatening to sue Hong Kong for arresting him in 2004 and, with the US and UK, arranging his extraordinary rendition to Libya.
Not much chance of that. The wreck was mostly broken up years ago. Then the seabed was dredged, reclaimed and Container Terminal 9 was built on it, opened in 2003.
Newton has prior art... and the laws.
Yep, the one with the apple in the pocket.
I withdraw my Ad Hom attack with apologies... by accusing me of bitchiness you have proved your lack of stereotyping.
Saying, "There's no point in aiming for equality" is unhelpful because it ignores the difference between equality of opportunity and equality of result. If gender stereotyping is discouraging women from entering IT, or men from entering nursing, that is prejudice that should be addressed. The only relevant measure is aptitude for the job.
A.C. 10:04 Sales isn't the point, its training. So many attacks have a social engineering component that could be defeated by a user with a clue.
And another effect of testosterone is the inability to see beyond stereotypes, Eadon. I've certainly met both men and women with a wide range of social and toy-playing abilities.
But, if unbiased studies back up your prejudices, then we certainly need more women in IT security. One of the persistent failings of IT security is in persuading users/developers/managers to make smart security decisions. An ability to chat, care and socialise would be a massive advantage.
and the Dr. becomes a female Dalek, constantly torn between compassion and hate.
But it's supposed to be a children's program!
I've had both break, requiring pliers to remove the cap from the socket (yes, I remember to use the circuit breaker - I'm still here, right?).
But I don't like screw bulbs because they tend to loosen themselves over time, until the light goes out when the bulb is still OK.
You could measure power consumption and lifespan of whatever bulb you choose to use. We could actually find out whether energy-efficient bulbs are saving us anything. With a temperature sensor and cloud-sourced data, we could get an answer on how badly overheating affects CFL and LED bulb lifespans.
Depressingly, I think I know the answer: the manufacturers can make more profit if we replace the control module every time the glowing bit stops glowing.
can I have my space elevator now?
The "average user has to sign-on 39 times a day" but the pills are only "FDA-approved and CE-stamped for people to take up to 30 of these pills a day", so you still have to remember 9 passwords (on average)?
I hesitate to point out the possibilities of pill recovery from the sewage system. Hackers used to go dumpster diving...
