How does it work..?
..If facebook is browsed under ghostery, in a browser with private mode enabled, all history, cookies and cache trashed on browser exit, and all shopping done with all the same settings but in a different session?
Wouldn't touch those ISPs anyway.
I'd have thought that most of the reader population of el reg were already with a privacy respecting, non logging, non IWF 'enabled' ISP anyway.. I know I am :)
Need to see the rest of the spec to understand the real potential value add. Front end bandwidth is a big thing, especially with the trend to virtual server infrastructure pretty much everywhere.
I'm incredulous. It has transformers in it. TRANSFORMERS! The only way it could be any more awesome is if it also had ninjas with guitars.
...do servers, desktops and even laptops with no OS at all, no quibbling for a refund required.
the best workaround ever
My absolute favourite was an outside-of-work call. A relative of mine was working at a local primary school and had mentioned that I was IT savvy when a panicked secretary discovered a 'virus' on her machine.
Every time she typed the word 'the' it was replaced with 'we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!'
Perplexed and for once interested in a 'can you look at my computer' issue I drove in. Once I had observed the word 'the' actually changing upon completion the cause was obvious. Someone had configured MSWord to autocorrect 'the'. A headmaster that had been in meetings all morning and had no idea that I had been called sheepishly apologised for the modification. However, for me, the very best part, for which the secretary deserves a prize, was the fact that she had typed an impeccably written 2 sides of A4 letter to the local church thanking them for the use of their hall for their school play, which read perfectly naturally, entirely avoiding the use of 'the'.
It's the american gvt trying to solar form Jupiter with a very big nuke payload. Like cassini and Saturn http://www.universetoday.com/2008/07/24/project-lucifer-will-cassini-turn-saturn-into-a-second-sun-part-1/
I want in!
And how does one apply to be a government sponsored script kiddie? I, for one, would enjoy a contract involving a mix of penetration testing and cybercrook DOSing/data pollution.
Need a mathematician...
... or at least a better one than I am... How many bits do I need my tunnel encrypted by so that the soon-to-be-overlord-exaflop machine can't read my traffic?
