Re: Here's an idea....

"How much more money do you want to spend on schemes trying to distract the feckless and where will it come from?"

Take the money of detaining one young offender for 1 year.

Now look at the price of running a youth club for a year, that takes 100+ kids off the street.

You may be surprised.

And it does work. The one I help run reduced the Anti social reports from 50+ in 1 year, to 0, that's right..ZERO.

The flip side, we no longer have a community support officer..

Here's an idea....

...trying funding crime prevention a little more, not crime detection. Crazy eh?

Y'now, those useless money eating things like, youth clubs, sports clubs, rehab clinics, homeless shelters, debt advice agency's, sure start centres, intervention teams, social services, adult education services, apprenticeship schemes.

Still harder to get a pie chart saying "we may of stopped 10,000 criminals" instead of "we locked up 1,000".

Re: An example to follow

Apps that exhibit bugs will be rejected

If your app doesn't offer much functionality or content, or only applies to a small niche market, it may not be approved.

Fart apps and torches clearly are the way forward then.

WTF?

This is NOTHING new

Networking and PBX gear has done this for DECADES. You buy a license and it unlocks the disabled features.

I guess you've never used freeware either?

Often, it's because it requires a license for a propriety bit of software, often it's just to screw you over.

This is NOTHING new.

Interesting Reg's stance on this.

In a previous article:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/08/07/macaque_monkey_selfie_wikipedia_copyright_carpetbagging/?page=2

Note the blatant accreditation below the image and a protracted article about the poor little guy.

"Vulture Central's backroom gremlins haven't included the offending monkey shot. Why? Because we haven't got hold of Slater to ask permission to include his picture in this article. Simple courtesy."

Yet, now a US court (not a UK one) has said it's in the public domain ,here you are publishing it with seemingly no accreditation or even exif data (unless for some reason my pc is stripping it).

So c'mon Reg, make up your minds,

RealVNC distances itself from factories, power plants, PCs hooked up to password-less VNC

Lost all faith...

Re: VNC and RDP

VNC doesn't blank the active screen, require admin rights or require any user interaction. Hence we use it along side RDP.

Oh DameWare also uses VNC as default for Linux and Mac boxes as default, in fact they have to have VNC server running.

". My workplace does passwordless vnc too..

If there was a password, it woukd be post-it to the terminal where the session is displayed anyway."

Well, unless the "hacker" in eastern Europe has a bloody amazing pair of binoculars, don't think that would be an issue, certainly better than no password.

"password popups would be somewhat of a disruption to normal use."

What password pop ups? The one you use to connect with, but if you have to connect then it's no big deal, surely?

"Oh well, at least it's all behind NAT"

Would that be the one that VNC is punching a bloody great hole in? I'm just guessing as your security seems so piss poor, I guess your firewall rules are just Any/Any...just to make it a bit easier.
