1F926 (Facepalm) will get a lot of use in our office.
Now the world will know I am tall, dark, handsome and hung like a lion.
Anything which makes it easier to manage legacy Linux kit is a good thing
I'm off to watch an episode of Suits via Netflix on my Apple TV.
See what I did there?
it's hard enough to get broadband without a TV package and two types of phone so picking your channels is a pipe dream
a black man wouldn't have even got the first tasering before being shot in the face with a .38
how do they manage the temptation to turn it off when they are beating up a minority? Also who backs the cards up at the end of the shift? 8 hours of plod is a fair chunk of data to store each day and they should be time stamped and indexed to the officer with full meta data search
Shhhh. Grown ups are talking.
cue channel IT admins with ponytails and an MCSA telling us how they would do it better if only anyone listened
Yeah but you built it so now we need people who can use it.
Who are also cheap.
I don't need a Sony engineer to program my VCR.
There is no point staying up at night worrying about a problem you didn't cause and you can't do anything about
Make sure your platform is secured in a way that accepts that these vulnerabilities happen and protects the wider infrastructure and your other customers.
If customer A does something dumb and causes a problem to customer A then it's not your problem; if customer A does something dumb and that can impact customer B then I don't want to do business with you because your platform is full of holes
beats doing your heists on GTAV
I heard that locals were warned ahead of time to expect underground drilling noises due to some crossrail work that didn't exist
Given that telecoms and power was out for a wide area it is entirely plausible that it was designed to take out either security systems or remote monitoring of those security systems

While that may be the case in the colonies things here under the watchful eye of her Madge are a little stricter
I went to buy some charcoal on Amazon. At the bottom of the page it said "People who bought this also bought..." and had listings for potassium nitrate and sulphur.
I have an aquire and keep certificate which means I can buy it ready made and keep up to 15kg. You can make up to 200g for personal and educational use so long as you do not cause any explosion meant to harm or cause damage to property.
My school science teacher used to make black powder during class and it inspired a life long interest in science. Having said that he was put away for 8 years for raping pre teen boys so he was hardly a role model teacher.
Lawyers must be queueing up to take this one. Probably also publicising it to get enough others for a class action.
"Ever heard of browsing using your phone? Wifi?"
Ah, the pseudo techie.
I suppose you think those technologies work through magic and done have wired backhaul over the very same wired infrastrucure.
Go back to your html 'coding', mate.
do you guys at EL Reg wear out your CTRL, C and V keys quickly?
Yet 'red ed' and all the middle class goons in Labour keep making those same jibes. How many millionaires on the red benches? http://www.spectator.co.uk/spectator-life/spectator-life-life/9022871/socialist-climbing/
its not one of the usual suspects so perhaps we can be optimistic
such a glossed over mention of Ifttt.com considering a lot of the kit mentioned works with it. Why have compatibility between all things when you can have a neat orchestration layer to control all those APIs
in Australia the cost of bandwidth has been traditionally high because there is only limited capacity into the country. If Netflix want to foot that bill and deliver the content direct into the 'in country' ISP through peering or a local CDN then they don't even need to pay the ISP. The ISP is not paying for the international transit costs so delivering Netflix to their customers is a cost neutral proposition.
Still would though
Plymouth has an airport and direct train to London via Bristol
RNAS Culdrose was in Cornwall last time I checked.
this is a bit like slagging off a celeb on Twitter and using their handle in the hope they see it and respond - they usually don't
At school we got told off so we waited until the playground to say what we should have said back. At work we get hassle from our boss so we go home and tell our partners how we were right all along and in the pub when we get threatened by a big bloke we go put on some bravado to our mates. We all find a friendly and submissive audience when we have been challenged.
This is no different, rather than pointing out why he thinks he is not wrong to the person who thinks he is wrong he just comes here and explains it to a placid audience who doesn't care.
a friend from across the pond once told me a real man should have a TV the same size as his waist measurement.
He has a 56 inch tv and type 2 diabetes
but can I TALK IN TO MY WRIST like MICHAEL KNIGHT yet? If not it is about as much use to me as a non flying car
Also where is my genetically engineered miniature elephant (the size of a cat) that I asked science to sort out for me ages ago
you have to explore a lot of sea to find your East Indies
something something open source, something something free as in beer
this sort of analysis is used in many large retail organisations to spot fraud - if an employee is doing too many refunds or taking a higher proportion of big ticket purchases then the revenue protection guys get tipped off to investigate
all this chat about McDonalds when we could be making the ' "something something super fish something" nah you mean "something something super phish something" there I fixed that for you' joke
i bought a juice cable because John Lewis do not sell the official Apple ones. John Lewis do a warranty on all their products so clearly can't afford to sell the shitty Apple cables that last weeks
when you buy an Idevice you waive those rights voluntarily as you have purchased a license to use it in a very specific way
Crowley had been extremely impressed with the warranties offered by the computer industry, and had in fact sent a bundle Below to the department that drew up the Immortal Soul agreements, with a yellow memo form attached just saying: 'Learn, guys...
The usual assortment of comments from those who are outraged that the thing they think they own does things they don't want it to do - irony from the tech sector we all work in - interspersed with desktop support monkeys bragging about how they spend more time blocking the adverts than if they just ignored them.
I too run a custom firmware on my ISP router that black holes traffic I have not explicitly white listed and my own DNS server that has bogus entries for about 18,000,000 host names that I used to meticulously maintain in the hosts file of the 6 computers I have in my house for me and my imaginary wife.
I also have a massive collection of ad blocking software which causes my computer to run like the infected spawn of a Symantec Trial Edition.
Not really, I just ignore adverts.
BUPA isn't that expensive
we're not losing a future Einstein here are we
this will just be some media twats wanting some internet like they have at home for 15 quid which won't be cost effective to install
Meanwhile the grown ups having 1Gb bearers put in elsewhere are having no problems at all
banks used to have vaults and store lots of money on site, they accepted that they would get burgled from time to time and had insurance to cover it
As the insurance got more expensive they realised that the bank vault was not the best place to store the money so now if you go in to a high street bank they have far less money
When will we realise that connected computers are inevitably going to get hacked and start working out better places to store our personal data
I think the movie you are referring to is Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
The fifth circle of hell is taking sunrise registrations from domain prospectors as well as SEO experts and people who write pointless clickbait articles.
You guys fall for this nonsense debate every time. You even get all meta and argue about if you are having the debate.
There is nothing to say about Capita that hasn't already been said.
But it won't stop the El Reg commenttards.
