Does that mean that once you clear out all the scam accounts Twitter is left with one real user, namely Stephen Fry?

Staff in general are the "weakest link in the security chain" and disgruntled employees and the mischief they can create are a particular threat, the spooks advise.
So not the CxO's who think security is for the little people then?
Didn't Novel settle that bit by calling SCO to heal when they first went after IBM
OCP here we come.
Like Universities then. Oxford and Cambridge.
After checking out some code you notice one of the file s produces a syntax error. A quick blame on the code reveals it to be your boss after one of his all night hacking sessions.
A) Quietly inform your boss, then fix the code so you look like a loyal employee.
B) Inform all your co workers so you all have amo during the next pay review
C) Update your CV as this is the second time this week this has happened, and it's Tuesday.
D) All of the above
The correct answer will be posted later.

We'd dream of be able to only have to go back as far as IE7.
We still have client's on IE6 and that have no migration strategy.
We also have a bunch of clients who are getting ready to roll out their upgrade from Win XP to Windows 7.
IE7, ha. Lucky bugger.

Google might be able to get away with it by claiming that they assumed that the documents sent to them where legal. Of cause if a judge decides that that is not a valid excuse than Google has a legal break on all DMCA take down notices, as they will have to take each before a judge to check that it's legal. If the judge agrees that Google's defence is valid there are two options.
1) The judge still allows the case against Google, but allows Google to use all the facts of the case to recover costs against the issuing party.
2) The judge moves that Google is not a party to the suit and says that the Injured party should sue the issuer,.
I think that an automated system with no human checking could be claimed not to be in good faith. As a minimum you should be able to challenge the issuing party to justify their code in court.
Oprah: President Lout, is this a picture of you simulating sex with a stuffed goat.
President Lout: Yep, that's me. Thought it was funny at the time. How did you get hold of it, it was never copied of the wife's camera
Oprah: Er, an anonymous person gave it to us.
President Lout: Really and how did you verify that it was real.
Oprah: But you just admitted to it being real.
President Lout: Yes I did. But until then you where on a fishing expedition trying to discredit me and my policy of privacy for all. I don't want anyone to have to go through what you just put me through, and that includes you, and the anonymous person from whichever three letter agency gave you the photo
I got the information from http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3875 published in October 2004. How old are your books?
Sorry the web server has parsed the URL properly.
A URL is <scheme> "://" <server-name> ":" <server-port> <script-path> <extra-path> "?" <query-string>
See that extra-path bit.
The URL to resource translator in a web server can do several things but once it decides to walk the file system it will go down the URL until it finds something that maps to a file rather than a directory. Anything else is passed through to the file. In the old days of CGI scripting it ended up in the PATH_INFO environment variable.
I was just going to down vote you but I decided that you are so wrong you need a reply.
How would you like me to follow you around all day and night and write down every thing you said and everyone you met, talked to, passed in the street.
Now assume that one of those people who you bumped into is a person of interest.
So as you bumped into them and as I'm a GCHQ bod I wonder why of all the people he passed that morning you where the only person he bumped into.
So I go back over all you life, and I do have a record of your life, and discover that while you where a student you attended a rally against the Government.
So now you are a person of interest so I get one of my colleges to break into your house and steal all your computers and your TVs.
First off I now have your electronic life that I can scan at my leisure.
Secondly the insurance agency delivers replacement goods riddled with spy ware so I can keep tabs on you.
Are you scared yet. Your life is an open book to me. I know who you are. I know where you work. I know that you smile at the receptionist every morning, interesting is there some latent romantic leanings there that I can use to get leverage against you. I know where your wife gets her hair done and the route your children take on the way home from school. I know which magazines you read, which websites you visit, that you long to holiday in Turky. I know that one of your children thinks they are gay but is afraid to come out to you. I know everything about you.

If that was the case how come Private Eye has not been sued into oblivion by

Could this be that Hartnett had to admit to 'mistakes' being made in his handling of Vodafone's tax bill?

The Medical report will say that he is still not fit for the lashing and another one will be commissioned in a months time. This will be repeated until he leaves prison at which point the flogging will be conveniently forgotten about.
IIRC The Russians used to bring their cosmanorts back on land rather than a splash down in the ocean.

even hovering over a link lets the web site know you are thinking about clicking
you need to find the little link in the shut down dialogue that says shut down without installing updates.
My first reply was a joky response. However I strongly endorse the above.
Counter sue for the fact that she could have been a super model and cheated you out of your half of the 10's of millions she should have earned. Then let her argue in court why she isn't as good looking as a super model.

It's only funny because it's true.
But they do see you move, what with equal and opposite reaction.
The large amount of words in the English language is probably due to the fact that the island was conquered by world + dog* more than any other part of Europe.
That and the fact that we invaded most of the world as well, and nicked the words from the invaded countries that we liked.

If it chooses not to, Google may be in a precarious position with regard to its Android SDK,
If it chooses not to, Oracle may be in a precarious position with regard to every third party API it uses
To those who say which API's I'd say the API that allows an Oracle database to run on any operating system.
