Re: Windows FULLSTOP is not ready for the INTERNET
First virus i ever encountered was for Macs. The first worm I know of affected Unix boxes and took out a reasonable chunk of the `internet. Robert Morris built it IIRC.

Shows curiosity and initiative. Noone got hurt, what's the problem? Where do they think scientists of the future are going to come from?
Re: Spamhous must really be hurting those parasites
I just need a way of redirecting only those that must go through my ISP.
Functionality built into sendmail. I do the same thing, and I have a half-dozen domains that I regularly send to that go through my isp, the rest gets sent direct.
Anyone want one?
I trust the GPS position in the video was faked, or you'll have a queue round the block....
Great effort by the way, I didn't know Tamiya were still in business, I remember making their kits well over 30 years ago.

Isn't calling people bumpkins a bit like calling them plebs?
Re: CIO: needed, if good?
That effect at the end of your post is really cool. Quite frankly I was getting bored of the discussion, and to see the text fading out into nothingness nicely paralleled my interest level.
It seems to me that this http://www.reghardware.com/2012/02/06/review_samsung_series_7_chonos/page2.html reviewed a couple of weeks ago, is a better buy. I do appreciate that the market isn't exactly the same, but it's a lot cheaper.
It's also perfectly possible to use, at least some of these products, to load test an application that isn't hosted in the cloud, for example your average web site. Using a cloud-based load tester can be much cheaper than the traditional options. Site Confidence is one I'm aware of.
teasered the toadler.
Yes, i know what you meant but I like this.

Mr & Mrs Knapp
Have made their garden available in the absence of any nearer toilet? How very community minded of them.
Virgin + BT
I wonder if I'll pay £1.00 + VAT? 50p for my Virgin cable plus 50p for my BT phone line. Since the tax is applied to the supplier, BT will tax me for my phone and Virgin will tax me as if I'm using skype or VOIP.
While I broadly agree with the comments made, i feel something is being missed.
There are a lot of people who write songs and/or music without being recording artists. The Spice Girls didn't write Wannabe, but the guys who did made £1M+ from their royalties.
These folks make a living by licensing (in the case of the lyricists) their words, usually through a music publishing company. The deals are usually 50/50 split so any loss of income is a loss to the writer. While I don't suppose the sums involved here are very large, the publishing companies are not going to just give away any source of revenue. I wonder what the license costs would be in the event that these sites enquired?
In the event these things come in we clone one card* and post the data on wiki leaks. Then we all hack our cards to conatin the same data.
