not a text file though.
And of course it could never happen here, under the IP Bill plans. Right ?
Now might be a good idea to put your concerns to a Lord :
" (though it may not run unless it contains a binary)."
Or a script
"enabling developers to target iOS, Android and Mac using shared code"
So Windows Phone *is* dead ?
" they could get an accurate diagnosis between 6 and 32 per cent of the time"
I'll stick with tossing a coin.
If this has got your gander up, and you can get yourself to Manchester, why not come along to this neatly timed event :
Or join ORG directly so we can work together to fix this shit.
Not sure Arduino has the ecosystem, like graphical programing, that Bit has
Well, yes, obviously, because DRM can't work on a platform that allows arbitrary binaries to run as root/administrator.
"Why does it need to fallback to HTTP?"
Because the attacker does not have the private keys for the real google.com SSL certificates, and your browser doesn't have the attackers private keys for their fake google.com certificate.
I thought most popular sites were handing out HSTS headers, so browsers will refuse to connect over plain text ?
Hack the planet !
systemd is many things, but a bootloader ain't one
" you can't stop people using strong encryption; you can't legislate to ensure that vendors compromise cryptosystems"
The IPBill in the UK does exactly this. Might want to https://www.openrightsgroup.org/join/
"How will DNS help? NTP is not part of DNS."
No one enters NTP address as raw IPs...
Th adapters for the Xperia side charging connector are cheap enough to scatter them around your life:
"However, the only things that make me annoyed in Linux is the lack of a fully working WINE "
It's called VirtualBox.
"you can download Ubuntu binaries directly and run them. "
that doesn't make any thing clear. you're saying they've ported dpkg and all it's dependencies, plus a chuck of the GNU utils ?
According to the file tree on github, it has tcpdump installed. On a car. WTF.
"enshrine citizens' right to to request a 10Mps service from providers."
So it's totally worthless then ? "Right to request" is not the same thing as a USO like having a phone line.
"What's the £200 for? FTTC is self-service now."
call out fee. refunded if it's BT fault.
I'm fairly sure nothing happened to TalkTalk. Some bad press for a time, no real consequences.
"because such things must be kept secret for security"
No, they really mustn't. This sounds like tacit agreement from El Reg disappointedly.
How so ? They probably bribed or threatened someone in the Bangladesh government, rather than in SWIFT.
"this can have a devastating impact on any company "
Or, indeed, country.
" For one-off notifications like a text message, Android N will now support a direct, in-window reply option, just like with the Wear operating system"
Umm. Signal already does this. On Android 4.
Kobo (W H Smith backed) works wonderfully. Easily freeable from the DRM too, even on Linux, so no worries about your books vanishing if this happens to them.
The new hardware has trendy backlights etc. too.
MOD is shopping to their kickstarter backers now, according to
And you can buy here:
Or you could just use OpenAV and a http://moddevices.com/
"Disclosure: El Reg is a customer of CloudFlare and uses its content-distribution network."
Why don't you use their free SSL and sort out the login form then ?
No they aren't.
Can. Never. Unsee.
" balk at the 200 quid you need to shell to Verisign for a cert "
LetsEncrypt makes it free. StartSSL are also free (and worked fine before we moved to LE), but more faff.
I can't see any evidence that the accounts weren't just hacked into some other way ? Where's the gun, smoking or otherwise pointing at NTL^WVirgin ?
uBlock origin. Smaller, faster than AdBlock, doesn't take money to disable itself.
"if your site met the technical constraints then it would be included"
And who draws them up ? And can change them anytime they like ? And who do you complain to if you think it's met and they don't ?
It's a walled garden. Which is bad.
Turn off auto updates and keep it.
" 3 pass DOD bollocks compliant wipe of the returned drives - if the data was properly encrypted they wouldn't need to would they"
If you wipe the encrypted data, you don't have to worry about anyone brute forcing the key.
"Until you get to the porch steps."
Dalek's have been able to fly since The Chase. Which was black and white.
The difference between light and shade is several hundred degrees, so it's both.
We're bound to lose some one sooner or later. Hadfield as good as said so during Stargazing Live. And they all know the risks and thing it is worthwhile. Hopefully when (when!) it happens we won't be forced to can the whole thing like with the STS.
"Box, post a correction to that post"
As hacking in means breaking the DCMA (or local versions of), that's no help
It'll have to be crack able to be sold in the UK, thanks to the IP Bill...
Isn't that first one where Lotus is : http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/10/20/lotus_f1_data_centre_and_telemetry/?page=4 ?
I think MS are saying if you are an adware writer then your program must use published Windows APIs, or else. It's not about ads in-line on the remote web site, but those inserted by a local program.
