If it's an open wifi hotspot, where do passwords come into it? Open = no password surely even in the Middle Kingdom?
gestapo were right wing as was the Nazis - where did you get educated?
Fools, everyone knows man was generically engineered by aliens - maybe I have insider knowledge :-)
I think it's an admin from the NSA, not NASA because it's easier to spy on the innocent using http.
Re: "Is there another internet?"
Ahh, to be that young and naive again - it was called Compuserve (or CIS for the acronymium challenged)
dumping 100's of tons of radioactive waste in the sea - even Mr Burns would glow with envy
Netflix goes down as a sun flare hits earth - http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/10/25/nasa_sun_eruption_solar_flare_x3_1_sunspot/ - coincidence?
Trust Me I'm a Doctor talked about nitric oxide last week - it helps open blood vessels to prevent high blood pressure. Nowt about making you thin.
I think the rubbing cream on your obese body will be all the exercise most fatties will do though.
Or picture this - two fat naked bodies and a tube of cream squirted on them then they just have to rub against each other to put the cream on places that will never see the sunlight. Picture that when you're about to sit down to dinner tonight :-)
Hang on, when James Bond 'bends' the rules, we're all happy but when GCHQ possibly, maybe, does all of a sudden it's bad?
Just saying....and hoping my GCHQ quarterly job appraisal is good :)
Re: First comment: Useless research from the "DUH!" dept.
Take it you don't have a Googlemail account then?
If that was just a wave would this be a Titanfail (Titanfall getit) ?
Unless you've got some video proof too back it up (preferably in HD)
Paris ... nuf said
Shouldn't they be up for sale *on* eBay - that'd be a fun thing to do :-)
How can a drone get anywhere in 30 minutes? Will they do like pizza shops do, after 30 minutes it's free?
Better use those old ICBMs - multiple warheads (filled with books and Civet coffee) would be a better idea.
Re: From the archives (2009)
Also, I think it was the Big Bang (BBC) that did a test against the US swimmer Phelps and the presenter was in a shark skin body stocking thing. This was also quite a few years ago.
Where's the shark with a fricking laser icon ?
But all the snoops'll do is
put a trojan/virus on their offical gov website (such as tax returns etc), force you to do tax returns online and infect your computer that way. Who cares if the protocol is encrypted, it just means you can't check your own data pipes and see if data is being slurped to naughtyHQ
How do the police harm themselves responding to a call? Shirley they should do that when they get on site?
Every time he goes back in the ocean the sea levels rise. Nothing to do with global warming.
First to admit I'm no climate scientist but
even I know hot air rises and cold air sinks. Therefore the bottom of the planet will be colder than the top.
It's not rocket science folks.

"insufficient evidence to prosecute". - police jargon for a freemason/police/MP sprog
Well as a contractor currently working in a bank, the IT admin doesn't (yet) know about IP but he is planning on learning it one day. The staff/work ratio is unbeliveable. If I was in charge we could reduce the 20 head count to 3 (to cover for holidays etc). Most IT people basically should not be in IT but they joined for the large salaries,wild parties and loose women (I know I did and I'm happy). Just because you get a degree doesn't mean you're clever/intelligent/useful to the world in general.
People who get stressed at work (IT or not) basically can't manage their time/workloads properly. If your superiers says do this in x time and you know it's not possible then you should say so to *their* superiors. Just being a pussy and putting in unpaid overtime is frankly stupid and leaving you open to be abused later on.
My biggest stress is do I pop out and get another bottle of Coke or pop into M & S and get their freshly baked donuts. Am I working hard? I did a weeks worth of work in an afternoon by not running around like a headless chicken but sitting back, looking at the problem and then automating it. After all, that's what technology is there for, to make my life easier.
So, anyone whose a wimp should downvote this because it's the first step to manning up and growing a pair. I dare you.
So, how many
vultures to a Bitcoin? Is there a proper El Reg convertion rate yet?
Surely you'd use a Windows 7 boot CD to re-install the OS if you're a power user? No?
What about Lynx
The text, the whole text and nothing but the text.
(Paris because she could do with being on the internet more, especially if it became more graphic!!!)
Let's review the facts
Very red sun so skin will be greyish
Higher gravity so bodies will be shorter (probably 3 foot or so)
High levels of infra-red so nature will have evolved to give them large wrap-around sunshades.
As fir it being to far away to see the CFC's and such like in the atmosphere, that's a cover up if ever I heard one.
Just the facts ma'am, just the facts.
Re: The reported version of openssl is 0.9.8 so that'll do me.
Or newer technologies like heartbeat. Oh wait...
Blame it on the NSA
They're the bottleneck, slurping everyone's traffic onto their servers
Can we guess the nationality of the first twat who puts the boned chicken piece in the bread and bites down hard?

Where's the 3D ?
£3500 for a 2D telly, they're 'aving a laugh
History repeating itself
Back in the '80s, I brought a EuroPC which was a PC in a keyboard. A bit thicker than this one and a 3.5 inch floppy where the touchpad is. But it had a proper keyboard and internally I could add a 1/2 height ISA card - wow, the expansion capabilites were endless !!!
Fn key placement
is correct for us Thinkpad users - but my 12" X61 runs 2.5Ghz, has 8GB RAM, SSD and 3G card and was only a few quid more than this.

"Fog is also causing flight disruption" as if that matters when I can't check-in online.
£300 a week to stop terrorists?
They'll get more in backhanders to let the scum in.
The main things about racing is the speed and noise. Neither come to mind when I think of gran's electro-cart bumbling along the pavements.
As the old saying goes

So when Lobban retires
will he be 'lobban' the MoD - ho ho ho, what a sense of humour I have :-)
What you fail to understand is
how difficult it is to 'flip 180' in space. Side retro-rockets get fired, you flip 179 degrees and end up in Jupiter instead of Mars.
The way I see it is two rockets on side pods.After 1/2 way to Mars, you have to switch off the engines (good luck in restarting them in the middle of no where), spin them (in sync) 180 on the pods and fire them up (fully in sync to the nano second) and hope you don't wiggle abit, else hello Jupiter.
Not going to happen with current human technology. Best pull out the crashed UFOs from Area 51 and reverse engineer their technology.
He concluded: "Let common tradition and common sense prevail."
Although obviously only after much media attention showed what a bunch of twats they are
to see the lego version.
Come on, it can't be that hard building a plastic bridge which holds Optimus Prime can it ?
There should be a security video available soon
since most petrol stations have cameras - should get a lot of hits on YouTube
