They had the driver gloves and the driver hat fine, but the driver socks were missing.
Not if there is a substantial obstacle 10m West (wall, lake, large drop, etc.) of your destination.

Re: The more of this I read
The question is, why doesn't the key actually cut off the engine physically(/electrically)? This is not a function that software should over-ride. It certainly isn't a function that should provide a "hint" to a computer that the fleshy part might like the engine to stop.
Re: Shark jumped @AC
Modern IMAP can do most of what Exchange achieves (at least the useful bits from a mail user perspective).
Or to look at it another way, Exchange couldn't even do basic email for that number of users with those resources.

Re: Will no-one think of the ads?
It should be simpler than that. There should be an "Application is Ad Supported" permission that only allows access to retrieve and display ads. No general internet access, no additional permissions required.

I think it translates as "your microphone does not have the required NSA invisible intercept facility/hardware lock override".
Re: What would they put a levy on?
I think you are onto something here. Tell the music industry that this will be implemented. As well as standardised, legally enforced percentages of Gross that must be paid into a government managed fund for distribution to artists, composers, etc. from the sales of all music distribution, whether physical or digital.
See how they like being made to pay a decent amount to the creators, rather than using "Hollywood accounting" whilst demanding laws are passed to give more money to themselves, which they have no intention of passing on.
Home taping doesn't kill music... the record companies do.
Re: But but...but...
I heard Stephen Fry is working with Apple to fix this at this very moment.
First you say:
I don't like running with a known vulnerability in my SSL stack for two days, let alone two months. It doesn't take that long to write and test patches.
and then later:
The OpenSSL team owe me nothing, and for all I care can stop their work today - I have the source I need
Then why didn't you fix it yourself, genius?
All the liquid cooled data centre articles I have seen have missed one very important point. Data racks stack servers vertically to achieve high density for a given floor footprint. Putting servers in a liquid bath would appear to limit you to fewer servers in the same footprint, and that's without taking the extra liquid weight into consideration.
So, you get a more efficient cooling footprint, but a less efficient density in the first place. Given that power and cooling costs are effectively passed on, what most data centres worry about is density. This increases their energy efficiency (nice tick box, but nothing for the business profitability) and reduces their maximum loading (and therefore potential income).
Left hand, meet right hand
Left hand: I won't let you visit a site using SSL unless that certificate is signed by an authority that I already know, and I mostly know commercial authorities.
Right hand: I won't let you visit a site unless it uses SSL.
Real world: grow the fuck up. Not all sites need their traffic to be encrypted. If they do, accept self-signed certificates.
It's time to separate "protecting a site via encryption" and "validating a site via PKI". SSL is (incorrectly?) used for both.
You don't need to fit brakes to sheep, they are more than capable of stopping suddenly in the middle of the road.
Re: A step in the right direction
but choose to look the other way.
I think I see the cause of all those road deaths!
Why, yes, that is my coat, how did you know?
Not really surprising
So a stripped-out OCP node is cheaper than an HP midrange server.
How about comparing it to an equivalent white-boxed server, that would be a better comparison.
Re: "They'll be first up against the wall when the revolution comes."
Ahhh, but are you executing them in series or parallel?
Re: Lovely idea... maybe not
There are plenty of competent companies outside the major names. However, that competence and service costs, particularly when done at a smaller scale then the big boys.
The fact that most customers buy purely on price, choosing to ignore the "better" options, and then complain about the service is often the root of the problem.
Of course not, they just wanted the money first before they refused it.
Re: April fools?
Far too obvious.
Must try harder.
Re: JustWiz If only the NSA protected MY information with such zeal.
Yes, and they managed to keep us safe using genuine, old school trade-craft for years without the ability or requirement to scan all our communications.
The false sense of security and data overload means that a security service that thinks the ability to scan everything means they have solved the issue and don't need to put people on the ground into dangerous places will endanger us all.
We are less safe with mass surveillance, nor more. It becomes a needle in a haystack, rather than intelligent, targeted data gathering.
It just seems easier, that is all. Your attitude is both shocking and depressing.

Re: Good for him… maybe?
... and a one in a million chance is a certainty.
Linux running in 256MB can be a perfectly stable platform to serve Apache and PHP - you might need an older distro designed for smaller hardware, but it will work. How well does Windows "serve hundreds of http: connections in a live environment" in 256MB?

Re: Closed is out of flavour these days.
"Time at risk" does not equal the time between the exploit being admitted to by the vendor and the time it is fixed.
It is the time between either the discovery of the flaw, or the time it was introduced and the time it is fixed.
When Microsoft sit on detailing a flaw until a fix is ready, your servers ARE STILL AT RISK.
Their policy is dangerous and cavalier. This is not the security you think it is.

Re: And of course...
The point is the text in the email is written backwards (so scanners don't see normal keywords), but the text is wrapped in a block that tails the browser/email client that the text should be rendered right-to-left, so when it is displayed it looks normal to you, so something like (tags made up, not part of any standard I am aware of):

Re: This means mail has been lost
@Steven Raith - assuming the sender is a person, and it's not an automatic email from somewhere.
and in the meantime they are losing email...
Re: dig ntlworld.com mx
True, but it would be a matter of minutes to set up a backup (store and forward) mail server to spool the email in the meantime, whilst rebuilding whatever needed doing for the pop/imap cluster - and it would prevent any further loss of email. Presuming that Virgin Media already have secondary, tertiary MX servers, it *should* just be a matter of a dummy primary MX record and then adding the secondary record, leaving it to spool until the primary MX is ready and running. But what do I know?
dig ntlworld.com mx
That'll tell you all you need to know. Should take 30s to fix (plus DNS propagation time).

Re: Erroneous Cowherd Contempt
@Matt Bryant - there are a number of serious flaws in this law as first drafted. I have not yet checked the passed amendments to see if they clear these up, but on an initial reading it seems not (you have read both the draft and amendments before commenting on whether you are for or against this, haven't you?). As currently passed (my interpretation), if the government decides to investigate you or someone you have communicated with, and then you ask me to troubleshoot server logs for an unrelated issue (I sent an email but it wasn't delivered, perhaps) I will be unable to assist you - in fact it will be a criminal offence for me to do so.
