Quantum crypto felled by 'Perfect Eavesdropper' exploit

Jimmahh

Don't quote me on this, but... =P

I thought the advantage of being able to use symmetric key exchange was it fundamentally had a lower computational overhead... that and it looked nice and neatly symmetric ;-)

Praying for meltdown: The media and the nukes

Welcome

Let-Me-Google-It-For-You(TM)

"Also a link to an online copy of the Daily Mail's "Nature's Deadly Rage" would be great if you could provide it..."

Err... you did try Googling the phrase; Daily Mail's "Nature's Deadly Rage" didn't you....?

Because an online version of that copy seems to be the first result

*shrug*

Traffic-light plague sweeps UK: Safety culture strangles Blighty

Jimmahh
WTF?

Baffles me...

Why are pedestrians, cyclists and motorists referred to in articles/studies like these as if they're entirely different species?

I drove to work today, but tomorrow I'll be cycling down to the station to catch the train into London and then walk from the station... I guess I must be some kind of weird one-off mongrel =P

Location-based quantum crypto now possible, boffins say

Jimmahh
Coat

It's worse than that... they've moved Jim =P

Hell, if the allowed area is small enough continental drift starts to become a problem with long distance calls ;-)

That'd be interesting to try and have to explain to a room full of generals suddenly looking a blank screen mid-sentence if you forgot to take it into account...

WTF?

Has AMFM gone into scams?

"We thank you for your comprehention in this manner"

Erm... I think they're aiming a bit high hoping for people actually comprehending that email =)

Voting chaos in not-fit-for-purpose electoral system

Jimmahh
Pint

Not to be a pedant (but it's an IT news site so what can you expect)

"...the legitimacy of forming a government with the ringing endorsement of just over a third of the electorate"

It's just over a third of the people who voted, not the whole electorate, much less the British people (to badly paraphrase a man called Gil =)

Bank security guru: Sue your bank for refund

Re: possible haddock issue

It's not spelt out in the article or the blog post itself, but in the supporting doc (PDF of letters bouncing back and forward between him and the bank) he does explain why he wasn't willing to sign the second declaration....

Large Hadron Collider to fire up again next Thursday

Jimmahh

Fair enough

Now pop off and do some experiments to prove/disprove your theory (one somewhat easier than the other in general)

The other lot have got a bit of head start, but I'm sure you can catch up if you apply yourself =)

Oh dear god....

The sheer levels of nerd rage about him forgetting that's what big blue whatsit on the front was for are actually worse than I expected while reading the article =)

Music industry busts jukebox piracy scheme

Jimmahh

@Something similar...

"The quality of some of the songs (including "popping") clearly indicated that the tracks had been downloaded"

Right, because stuff that's been downloaded is made out of those dodgy knocked off ones and zeroes that fell off the back of a lorry...

Maybe he used some old decks to copy all of that old vinyl onto his laptop (probably a lot easier to carry around) and made a bollocks of the quality? *shrug*

@Not my words, either Sarah ...

Erm.... pardon?

Treatments can have side-effects, best stop taking them?

Or is this a "Drug works by stuffing up RNA in it's target... *quick google* Holy shit! I've got RNA too... PANIC!!!!" kind of arguement?

RE: Particular to workplace?

Surely all you have to do is come up with some paper-thin excuse to put on a show called "Citrix" and you'll be alright again?
