Especially as there seems to be Google traffic in there as well.
I built a Linux machine 2 days ago, removed the usb drive and it rebooted without warning. Therefore Linux is crap.
See my experience MUST apply to everyone and they are wrong if they say Linux is great.
How is it the new Windows?
Patches for windows are rolled out for 10+ years and don't rely on on 3rd parties to push them out.
"For now it's up to users, who are advised to keep a close eye on the patch availability for their particular device and operating system, and apply these critical fixes at their earliest opportunity, according to Rapid7"
I guess they don't own a Android device more than about a year old then. There's only a couple of makers out there that bother (Google and Sony spring to mind).
The rest of us? No need to bother we know the answers
I agree Ostrich is quite tasty, but not over keen on Crocodile though bit tough and tastes to fishy for my liking.
..you type it up on your fancy lah-de-dah typewriters.
Real men had to typeset !
"appropriate balance between the marginal benefits of full-disk encryption"
Odd, pretty it's a requirement to have full disk encryption in order to comply with parts of the DPA.
Therefore PC plod, which law do I break in order to comply with the law?
So you propose they do what?
...I work in IT, but I often run programmes I not "supposed" to do.
I need audio editors, although we provide none.
I need to edit XML files, but we don't give out notepad++
I need to use multiple browsers to deal with he applicances and websites, which refuse to all work correctly in a single browser.
I need VNC a remote desktop is not suitable
I use a different network monitoring tools as ours it specc'd for my team or suitbale
and on and on.
On the flip side, if it goes tits up, I fix it or beg for help on the forums, not go running to an IT department demanding that a programme they have never heard of gets fixed.
The REAL issue is the THEM vs US mentality with a dash of corporate lethargy thrown in. OT doesn't ASK what the end user needs, the end user doesn't say what they would like to do, so each forces their own solution on each other, neither working particularly well.
Web servers in 6ft cabinets in 1966, I'm impressed
USB, Ethernet and Video out for starters.
Get CCleaner, set to delete hot fix un-installers and temp files and watch the space reappear
"The apps on my tablets are downloaded only from legit sources"
Yup, Google Play / Apple have never had any dodgy apps.
" Exploiting Unix with a local privilege escalation hack is nothing new."
Nor is going through the windscreen in a crash. That's why we've learn't lessons and created seatbelts, air-bags and collision avoidance systems.
The difference is, you can't find the malware once it's there. If owned by using a 0-day exploit, you will never find it or know it's there.
I thought in the UK it was 0908 468 739
...that seem to bitch AFTER a product has been launched. It's like they never knew it was coming,never had access to the beta programmes; begging the question, how badly are these companies development teams run?
See my link in earlier post and the 1st line gives it away.
"With the approval of the Secretary of State for Defence"
Maybe you should ask what those directly involved think before bitching about this:
"There is no headstone among the flowers for those who perish at sea. For the 1,415 officers and men of HMS HOOD who lost their lives so violently in battle on 24 May 1941, the recovery of her bell and its subsequent place of honour in the National Museum of the Royal Navy will mean that there will be a place where future generations will be able to gaze upon it and remember with gratitude and thanks, the heroism, courage and personal sacrifice of HOOD’s Ship’s Company who died in the service of their country ~ well after the remains of HOOD have long gone."
...they could actually get their hands on some Ashes....
Someone had to do it
"Apple don't do servers "
They did, but didn't really sell in huge numbers.
"regardless of the new laws about making backup copies."
What new ones? The ones that say it now LEGAL?
"Linux distros have done this right, and it's something that Microsoft and Apple really need to copy."
You're mixing applications with Kernals / OS'
My FF is up to date with 0 clicks on a windows box.
Why have you added a link to an incredibly expensive, bulky and piss poor immersion to prove him wrong.
Everything he said agrees with your link!
...the person will look stupid doing VR, it's just how it is.
...how "automatically" blocked they are? Is it blocked UNLESS the user decides to go off and "sign up" to the install, i.e. tick the box saying they want it?
Who are all the PC makers going to sell to in the interim?
Businesses...tablets are ok, but just don't hack it for a lot of people. It's now the case a laptop is cheaper than a desktop + monitor.
"Attackers that have previously gained admin privilege on a target system"
So attackers that already have admin access can compromise the device?
I've got to be missing something here surely?
"Do you actually have an EE phone that stays connected to the masts and keeps the number in service?"
Can you call the number ancd get through to voice mail when you can't get to the phone?
Then you have a working number.
Bitching about signal?
Ever thought it may be your phone? Or the case it's in?
Break out a cheap as chips bog standard phone and see how good a signal you get then, chances are way better then most smartphones.
How much do you pay to keep the phone connected to the masts and number in service i.e. line rental?
...that's mainly /b and a couple of other NSFW boards; some are almost "normal" by web standards.
I did it with a Chrome based browser no problem.
OpenDNS is pretty crap. Just do a Google Image search and you're away.
I'd recommend K9 protection over it anyday.
"Free examination, cheap lenses and absolutely extortionate frame costs. "
Lucky you. Mine are about 80% of the total cost! Either that or I have a couple of milk bottles bottoms (ask you parents kids) in front of my eyes.
I think it's called irony.
Microsoft never innovates it only steals, welcome to project copy Google
Google image search?
Blatant rip of of Bing right there.
Sites running ad's test back links (and monitor changes) before pushing out. Talking major sites, like Yahoo, that have the resources.
You forgot to take a piss in the shower....and yes there was campaign to do this a several months back.
The Geeks may want it, the rest of us in the human race, do not.
....I'm going to have halt my roll out of MegaNet and start work on UltraSuperNet
And if it's encrypted your backups?
This is the internet, no need to be rational, just judge.
Lets add Tom Jones for the Welsh.
Because she had a few hits 50 years ago and did some 2nd rate TV shows in the 80's and 90's.
Still the Liverpool lot love her, because she's one of them....despite not living there for most of her life.
That said, the panto world has one less c-lister to choose from.
Ok the tech is old, but you get the idea why flywheels are not great.
This is remote start, not drive.
Many alarm systems can do this.
So you propose diluting the fee across dozens of broadcasters and that will improve thing how?
I presume you know that C4 is also are free public broadcasters as well?
would to be make iPlayer Subs based. If you pay a license fee, you get to lock it to say 5 devices and then any after that you pay X amount.
If you don't pay a license fee (including Johnny foreigner) you pay X+Y.
This would not only make the service "free" to license holders, but allows content (and money) to come from other people that would otherwise would not pay a penny.
