I wan't Oricle to win
It will be fun watching every other company they use an API from, using their arguments in court.
Re: missing the obvious question
The problem, as i under stand it, is trying to make sure that Mr Smith of Flat A, back. 102 Pembroke avenue, Stroud. Isn't the same person as Mr J Smith of Flat A, front. 102 Pembroke avenue, Stroud.
There my be trouble ahead.
it said it would be spending an additional £450m on top of its £2bn annual IT spend for a "complete refresh of the mainframe"
So we can expect further outages when they balls up the upgrades. In the long run I think it would be better to re hire all the IT Staff the fired and use them to train the new staff.
He should get at least an A for this.
COMPENSATION WILL BE PAID
So all Wonga/RBS customers should forward their correspondence to the boss of RBS to explain why they missed the payment on their loans.
It might almost make you think that getting rid of all your most experienced (and therefore most expensive) IT staff is a bad idea!
Nah!! - Been-counter general, RBS
But what the fuck is online promiscuity?
Having two different web cam girls on screen at the same time.
Or at least that's what I've been told.
Re: Ditch the DOG
Dogs aren't there to remind the viewer which channel they are watching, they are there to spot when a rival TV station is ripping of your feed.
There was a documentary about Al Jazeera filmed during one of the Gulf conflicts in which a US network got hold of the live feed and passed if of as their own. The documentary filmed a phone conversation that went like ...
Why are you using our feed.
Don't lie to me you bastard I can see our logo on the screen.
The Al Jazeera teckies then through in an encryption layer on the feed and watched the US network broadcast the encrypted feed for a few seconds.
I think the Photographer should Appeal
The damages are way to low.
Since October ...
So when was their ability to take credit card payments revoked?
are you seriously putting heroin alongside a pint of bitter in terms of danger?
Which drugs are legal and which are not and the whole illegal drugs classification thing has bugger all correlation to.
a) How addictive the drug is
b) How dangerous the drug is.
Note that even 'How dangerous the drug is.' is a misleading statement as it give zero idea as to dosage or other activities performed while taking the drug.
Boffin Nutt was sacked for trying to explain this to a government in thrall to the Daily Mail.
When did you stop worrying sheep and move on to goats?

Re: Cost saving idea
And a fourth suggestion.
Tell the person who you employ in the afternoon not to bother as I got one form the person in the morning.
I have a different list for not buying Sonny products.
It starts with root kitting my PC and continues from there.
Re: Willful infringement?
This answer brought to you by the Eastern District of Texas
I've got a little list.
why doesn't he release a list of the MPs who made/voted-in the laws which allow these accounting 'tricks' to exist in the first place?
All that information is already in the public domain. All MP.s votes on legislation are publicly recorded.
“We are very aware of the community concern about the situation, and it is unfortunate that we were forced into the legal process, but unfortunately my client is a giant *rich* dick."
A pour giant dick. is call a prisoner, or in some states of America, dead.
Re: Dare I say...
Re: Anyone here using Virginmedia?
Yes I use Virgin.
No I don't recall them telling me they export my data abroad.
Yes I did spot the gmail folder in my mail box.
However. Wouldn't transferring my data outside the EU without my express permission fall foul of EU Data Protection Laws?
PM out of touch with reality says EU

Re: W3C against privacy & for DRM
They are not actually for DRM. They just accept that as it's already here, having a standard to code to will make it easier for the end user to control.
Why not a Public/Private key pair for authentication. That way if the database is hacked it's still useless.
There is a theory that says that 1 unit of Planck Time is the smallest measurable unit of time. But it currently does not account for the sped a New York Taxi Driver can hit the horn after the lights turn green :-)
Re: You will be bored but...
These Linux people can't spell
They spell 'Photoshop' as 'Gimp' and 'SQL Server' as 'Postgress'
Just how old is chroot?
Re: F1 2013
And can you get the rear of the car to burst into flames by driving with the breaks on? :-)
His supervisor noticed changes in his behaviour and even became suspicious that he was trying to break into classified files.
At least all NSA staff now know what upper management think of Appraisals.
"if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear"
I have a better one.
"People should not be afraid of their government; governments should be afraid of their people" V - V for Vendetta.
Arrogant, annoying, self centred, idiotic, stupid, all these words when applied to someone are likely to get you into trouble now.
Oh well, lets see if I can still quote Arkell v. Pressdram?
Teenagers, Marketards, Governments & religious groups need to get a life.
Of the four mentioned above I'd suggest that the Teenagers would 'get a life' if the other three left them to it.
pure speculations and unsubstantiated opinions that defy logic and reality itself.
Are you talking about string theory again? :-)
You really should learn how silk Road worked before spouting of that way. The only thing the dealer knew about the buyer was the address where the buyer wanted the product delivered.
Re: Noise pollution
Aspie people CAN learn to understand subtext - most of the time, and eve pick up on body language. But it takes actual practice and conscious thought, and it's not as reliable as most NTs' sense of others' feelings. The very best thing we can learn to do in terms of personal interaction is to deliberately compensate for this by asking questions and -ensuring- we're on the same page, not just misreading someone's intent.
The problem I find is that when I'm concentrating on something, I'm no longer thinking about subtext or interpersonal relationships so I come over uncaring.
I've spent a lot of my life looking for situations where I know the rules. Otherwise I flounder like a fish out of water.
Re: Noise pollution
I have the same problem, get me into a noisy pub and I may as well be listing to a football crowd chanting in an unknown foreign language
why I do.
Sorry I seam to have come over all Geordie there!
Is this the final death for DRM?
To work properly DRM requires that the receiver has a key that can be used to decrypt the data.
Either this key has to exist in the browser or it has to be retrieved from a source on the Internet.
If it's the former I just need to look through Fire Fox's source code for
const char* W3C_DRM_Decrypt = ...
If its downloaded from the internet I just need to find
const chr * W3C_DRM_IP_addr = ...
Either way I now have the key needed to decrypt the content and can write my own code to download it, decrypt it and save it.
Define "decent people"
Any one who thinks the same why I do.
they'll invariably end up in the wrong hands.
Is that the picture or your jiggly bits?
Upload all your business data to our cloud. That way the NSA only has to ask us for it, instead of hacking your network.
