If they can still write to all their patrons, the names and addresses must have been stored somewhere else. An organisation doing backups per chance?

New meaning of taking your work home with you (Apple = crap job !!)
How about wiring them up to that new Russian data centre - the one built ontop of a nuclear reactor? That should keep the juice flowing.
I like mike's tweet.
How many of the talks are on soft skills* ?
How to sell ideas/methodology etc. to upper management/bean counters?
How to sell your products to paying punters/marketting etc. for independent developers?
All these are as important as developing actual systems.
* Soft skills are p2p (people to people) requirements. As we all know hard skills are what we do and Joe Public doesn't (understand).
Just wait until I genetically mutate my space sharks to have frikken lasers on their heads.....
This is similar to the moron who 'owns' the moon. Just because you're American actually means nothing to anyone else in the world (let alone the existing Intergalatic Federation of Asteroid Mining Consortium).
If I decide to mine an asteroid, I don't want anyone else muscling in so lasers on standby....
I know exactly how they feel - spending more time on admin than real work - a plan devised by upper management because they sit around doing squat all and think that everyone else has the same amount of free time.
3 out of 5 - you being drinking from the generous cup?
Also, in the UK our double sockets are horizontal.
Is this kosher?
In future all whistleblowers will be hunted down by Hellfire carrying US drones to prove it wasn't the Scottish Police targetting any journos.
And this is why I dropped my .co.uk names and just use the proper ones (com,net and org).
So do Sky boxes, 38 watts whether powered on or off.
Just as well this Nest eco-system isn't designed to save electricity !!!!
"Entirely missing from the document, however, is any mention of the government's promise to bring in a legally binding broadband service obligation by 2020, as pledged by PM David Cameron earlier this month."
That'll be passed in law in April 2020 so the Labour gov't will have to sort it out when they get elected in May 2020 - nice one Davey.
Isn't this just a standard desk with a few holes punched in it with all the cables neatly tucked out of site?
Well, I get password reset requests from so many banks,web stores and even Apple store and I can't even remember opening up accounts with them.
Surely all those paedoes, terrorists and drug dealers should be ponying up.
Re: old fashioned check
Americans eh !!!
Either Amex is crap at thinking up numbers or Samy had access to more than just 20 other numbers. And how extactly did he obtain those ones?
Waiting 5 minutes will cost drivers £19 million quid. Really? Isn't it waiting 5 minutes will cost Uber £1900 million quid cos of the crap rates they offer drivers?
But don't worry HRMC, it won't affect our tax returns because we'll still pay sod all in taxes because we don't earn income in the UK.
Alwways thought Disney was just a Mickey Mouse company !!!!!
I've just had a post 'awaiting moderator' - not an Andrew story either.
Doesn't the SF/Southern Vulture offices mean the sun never sets on an el Reg forum? Or are they too busy cycling for charity and stuff ?
If showing adverts on websites is fraud, someone poke Googles lawyers please.
Pay to upload files? Again, poke the Big G's lawyers. I could upload copyright infringement files (found via Google naturally) on my G drive and let the public downlaod them. Is Google in the clear then?
"and European law enforcement opted for blanket surveillance far more readily than US law enforcement." - I take it he doesn't count the NSA as law enforcement then?
So I take it I can't store all the details from my thousands of carefully vetted, opted-in customers from Europe on it now? Damn, and I was so willing to pay OTT prices for a glorified hosting service.
Amazon, do you know how many Europeans now won't get emails and SMS reminders to claim for PPI scams?
Re: Smallest size is medium?
Star eating the weekend breakfast recommendations and pedal harder. That should sort you out :-)
The NSA paid me a million dollars for breaking their encryption. Oops, wasn't supposed to mention that.
Is this really just Max's end of term dissitation/project for his degree? If so, hats off to you.
Who thinks we should get Gwynne Shotwell to change her name to Gwynne Moonshot ?
So, could someone explain how to read email meta-data and not read the actual content? Do they mean they just record the HELO, MAIL FROM, RCPT TO commands and then stop listening? Because if they are doing that, those are the bits most faked by spammers !!
So, a few tape worms to make you lose weight, men get attracted to you and you then pop a few roundworms to get preggers. Lovely :-)
Gardening leave - in winter? They're about to be plunged into 24 hour darkness and think their staff should be outside tending the roses in x feet of snow?
"21 per cent thought their child would be able to circumvent the controls they install." - wow, how naive of parents.
How about using Minecraft to show newbies how to play Minecraft ?
How they get Dave Dickinson to do a 'cheap as chips' TV advert for it !!!!
Companies not returning your phone calls? Has Apple's influence spread or are you ticking off too many people nowadays?
Surely the Indians should have called him 'James Banned'
Why were those methods of payment ever allowed in the first place? Yeah, hindsight is wonderful but common sense trumps that.
"We still believe that effective remedies are essential to address the failure of competition in the Pay TV market, in which Sky has had around 75 per cent share of retail subscription revenues for more than 10 years."
They then added
"But our dominance of the landline market provides a fair and unbias communication system which other companies can access (by picking up the phone, attached to our network)"
The US Senate has an Intelligence Committee? Oxymoron surely?
Back on topic...
Keep encryption secure. That way the bad people will keep using it. How does that help the authorities? Simple, lulls them into a false sense of security and allows the intel agencies to install keyloggers, malware etc. on the devices. The intel agencies then get specific intel on only the bad guys and leaves the rest of the world alone.
Re: It would be helpful if the article stated WHICH COUNTRY it was refering to....
I got to the second from last paragraph when I realised it wasn't America they were talking about.
Standard multi-tasking problem - you can use the tablet *or* you can recharge it.
Cleveland Police usng a VoIP system perhaps?
Re: I've been around here for ages
I don't need to be knowledgeable to post about anything - as my high down votes attests. I got my bronze in August, silver in November. Post and ye shall be rewarded.
Well, I hope you'll make an exception and change his badge to have little bars on it. I'm sure he'll appreiciate it, post jail time.
Don't mention you-know-who to Mr Osborne. Nah, it couldn' be them. Could it?
So when we (I mean naturally the NSA/CIA) hack power stations etc. it's in the interest of world peace but when it happens to us it's terrorism? In other news, Mr Cynic marries Miss Al.
And you just gave a bronze badge to a perp....coinsidence or what?
And why no re-enactment photos?
Does Putin allow his citizens access to el Reg? Just wondering who the last paragraph was aimed at?
