In his ruling, Gorenstein pointed out that very few criminals keep all their illegal activity information in a folder marked “drug records”.
Why do I have a sudden urge to create a folder called “drug records”, just to store my prescription details you understand ;-)
Who cares about her birthdate
Just save me from this Monstrous Regiment of Wiki Twiddlers.
Re: The machine's main job
"will be to conduct simulations of the US nuke stockpile, helping it to understand how its weapons are holding up as they age"
...helping it to understand when its weapons should be sold before they age.
helping it to understand when its weapons should be launched against its fleshy overloads without damaging it's fellow computers.
The NSA must be happy
as they only have to ask Micosoft for all the emails instead of paying some disgruntled UK IT bod.
I went and looked at the porn harms web site and saw that they had a Dirty Dozen list. Grate I thought ,the top twelve porn sites in the world. No such luck top of the page it says.
We encourage you to join us in publicly recognizing these twelve as responsible parties in the spread of pornography and exploitation. Help us call on them to change their ways.
This list contains the following well know Pornographers:-
Barns & Noble
Hilton Hotel Chain
50 Shades of Gray
I think someone should introduce these people to edonky :-)
Only three years.
The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014 (CISA)
Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act
So it's only taken them three years to remove all the protection.
IANAL, clearly, but how does the RIPA law play in terms of your right to not incriminate yourself?
I don't think we have one. We used to have a right to silence that could not be used to assume guilt, but IIRC that was changed under Tony Blairs premiership
What happened to the right to remain silent?
It was removed several years ago.
Re: Actually the people listed are using the Vuforia SDK licence incorrectly,
I wonder if someone can get that paragraph thrown out under restriction of trade rules.
By opening the file
Well if MS hadn't decided to hide file extensions in the first place this would be much less of a problem.
Punisment to fit the crime
Watch as the redit crowd get to denigrate a picture of the perpetrators private bits.
Re: So you can now legally ask for flexitime?
Actually that's yesterday.
You: Can I have Flexitime?
[Wait three months]
RE bullets cost too much, we'd be better of bludgeoning them all to death.
Get them to bludgeon themselves then televise it. That way we can raise some money for the TV rights.
Profitable company starts futile round of cost cutting in order so satisfy investors irrational demand for perpetual growth.
Re: Kitkat 4.4.4
Kitkat 4.4.4: two thirds of the beast.
Surely 90% of the "Darkweb" passes through Cheltenham?
And 100% of everything else
Alistair Dabs is unwell
Though apparently he's felling better than Jeffrey Bernard.
Re: Point of order:
You have caused damage. Disregarding the reputational damage to the company and the damage to the directors bonuses there is the cost of getting the Indian outsources to recode the web site.
Re: Second prize ...
You stole my comment. Give it back or I'll make sure you come third
Re: So which of Cameron's friends ...
I always think the worst of people, that way I'm often pleasantly surprised when they fail to live down to my expectations :-)
So which of Cameron's friends ...
Has a company researching each of these problems?
Re: Beware of awkward associations
Rather that than the other way around.
The post office is a comon carrier
Doesn't stop it having multiple levels of delivery.
Re: Some one else needs to be charged ...
Considering the concentration of Urea to Water in the typical pee, he may well have reduced the average amount of contamination in the water.
However I think Pratchett had it about right with nutes in water and where they piss.

You should send that to the Eye
This is getting as tedious as the oh look another windows bug brigade.
Re: But, but, but..
You need to watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dfWzp7rYR4 from the BBC
The meening of the logo
The circle represents the uk's boarder. The gap is the bit where al the illegal immigrants get in and the dot is the illegal immigrant.
It's not that the user can't change each of the components once the phone is in their hands that is causing the rumpus, it's that google is telling the the OEM's what the default has to be.
Note that I still think the entire case is BS
No government in the UK has stood for election
The government is appointed, by the leader of the the party that can control a majority in the house of commons.
The members of the government don't have to come from the same party or even be MP's or Lords.
Can't get the staff
That could be because they are asking for 5 years of experience in two year old tech.
You have made the school boy error of thinking as an engineer rather than a marketroid.
This is not good
The BOFH, PFY and Boss all seam to be working together. This can only lead to bloodshed.
I hate writing
and testing jobs that run once a year. You can never get a decent testing platform for them.
Re: What's so special about "democracy"?
It means that when the current government looses power thy have a vested interest in not starting a civil war to re take it.
the more intelligence I read, the more conservative I become. The more deeply I come to comprehend the capacity of terrorists to evade surveillance, the more I want to be assured that where our agencies are constrained, the threat to civil liberty is real and not merely theoretical
The more scary stuff the intelligence agencies feed me, the more I want to crawl under my desk and leave it all to them.
Re: Does the leak cross services?
From what I know about this the answer is 'It depends'. But I suspect that if you can access OpenSSL for any service on a server you can assume that everything on that server is compromised.
I'm not sure if this can cross the boundary of virtual systems running on the same iron or not though.
that's strong evidence that the patents are robust.
Nope. it just means that the bean counters have decided that it's cheaper to pay than to fight.
Re: At Last !
Oh wine, SHUT UP!
I got my silver badge because of my stunning repartee, amazing wit, and blackmailing one of the Journos here on Ell Reg*. Not because of any perceived technical competence.
How are you planning on getting yours?
*One or more of the preceding statements may be at variance with established facts.
Is this the same Android AV scanner...
That I've been getting adverts for on my phone. I avoided clicking on it because.
1) I have lookout installed.
2) The icon looked like lookout's icon.
3) I assume every advert that appears on my phone that doesn't name the company to be fraudulent.
Re: Amazon aren't bad
Amazon seam to have come to the conclusion that
a) They will fuck up every now and then. Not surprising considering how they work their packers.
b) If someone has taken the time to call them, they can use this to sell the caller more goods.
c) The best way to sell the caller more goods is to resolve their problem as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Re: Customer services here, how may I /seem/ to help you?
This will free me up to get back to developing an AI to relieve me of the chore of watching television.
I don't need an AI for that. I mistakenly turned on the TV while it was tuned into the X factor. Now all I need is to talk to someone at the local support group, I've been on hold for an hour now and I swear if I hear green sieves on more time I'll rip the phone line ou <NO CARRIER>
Re: Having both ways...
Yes lawyers have it both ways. It is perfectly reasonable for a lawyer to put forward the following defence.
He didn't do it.
If he did do it in this case it wasn't illegal.
If it was illegal then the circumstances around the act mean that he should get the minimum sentence.
Note that the last defence assumes guilt, but the prosecution can not use that to get past the first defence.
Re: re: Is this an average? as I thought the Earth's orbit was elliptical?
Just one problem. As the earth approaches the Sun it speeds up. it slows down as it moves away. So it should take less time to go around the half of the ellipse close to the Sun that the other half.
Re: Argh, nooo...
The Unicode Consortium explicitly states in the Unicode Specification that the colour of the character is not part of the standard. Anyway you can always use ☻
I'm literally going to write OMG in a comment about twitter on another web site's comment system.
Re: Willy waving
The problem with that is they would go for option 4
Stall until all the important artifices can be removed into privet hands then let the buildings and gardens rot.
They actually banned the word Bad.
I think that's just to annoy the Michael Jackson fans.
