They ACCUSED him of inventing Bitcoin. Now, Nakamoto hires lawyer to CLEAR his name

WTF?

What?

Nakamoto admitted he had the ability to write computer code, but had been unable to find work as a programmer or engineer for 10 years. This "severe financial distress" caused Nakamoto to cut off his internet connection last year.........

Re: Your all up your own arse

@ Gordon...

Well said.....how many people have a clue what the gaping of your spark plug should be (let alone how to change it),or how about how to find TDC, but I can promise you my local mechanic running XP on his PC could.

How about changing a seal on a washing machine? How to rewind a motor? What about making a butterfly joint?

A computer, for 99.99% of the world is a tool, be it speaking to someone on facebook or watching a streamed move, not a way of life.

Brawling neighbours challenge 'quiet' cul-de-sac myth

Re: Clearly there is one such low life living among us

"low life? What, the sort of person who's prejudice colours their view of their neighbours to the extent that they believe themselves to be surrounded by evil criminal scum without ever actually engaging with them"

The sort that lived next do to said scum. You know the ones that have the doors kicked in at 3am by the police, after hurling abuse at them for close on an hour; the sort that had to endure beer cans in the garden; the sort that had to put up with music until 5am every morning; the sort that had to endure piss all over the place because they were to fucking smashed to find their own front door;the sort of person that stank of weed because they smoke so much it came from through the walls; the sort that eventually got these fucking wankers evicted after a year of hell. Oh I proud to announce that I also helped evict the lazy "woman" 2 doors down as well, because she thought gardens were for dumping shitty nappies and waste into. She could of stayed, but was given 2 weeks to clean the garden, but was so fucking lazy, she couldn't be arsed.

So unless you have had to endure this sort shit, FUCK OFF.

PS I eventually managed to move out, now live in a village, with a crime rate >1%, unemployment >3%, most people have decent jobs. You know where people smile at each other; where you can go out without fear of being mugged / raped / stabbed. Where people go for a drink and get along, not ripping their shits of at the 1st person that looks at their bird.

Oh in this village, I run the local charity, keeping kids out of trouble, helping bond the community and so on. The last place? It got closed down when the guy running it got stabbed.

So DO NOT patronise me!

Re: It's not their party

The ITU (remember it will require comm's) are anarchic, slow and not particularly transparent, but their standards do tend to be that, even when you have US standards vs rest of the world standards, they are pretty good at getting them to work together.

As for

Pakistan's YouTube ban may end after Google removes anti-Muslim vid

Lost all faith...
Silver badge
Mushroom

Re: Couple of questions

* If this video was not the cause of the ban then what really was ?

-On 17 September 2012, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) ordered access to YouTube blocked, after the website did not remove the trailer of Sam Bacile's Innocence of Muslims, a film insulting Islam and eventually resulting in a ban due to YouTube's non compliance.[45]

* Is YouPorn also banned, it's not really suitable for the children of <deity> ?

-Main article: Pornography in Pakistan

-Pornography is illegal. It is not easily accessible, and the Government has put a 100% ban on internet -website containing such material since November 2011.[41] The list of banned pornographic websites is updated on an ongoing basis.

* What percentage of Pakistani's actually have web access ( over and above a 56k connection) ?

-10.0% of the population (2012)

-25 Nov 2013 - The average internet downloading speeds were 2.29 Mbps during this period while the uploads stood at just 1.01 Mbps

* According to the logic of these people, why would Pakistan even need the internet

-Well obviously they have less of a need than you, as you are too fucking stupid / bigoted to use it to expand your knowledge a little. Maybe a little less time cracking one off over YouPorn vids and little more time talking to the terrible brown people, or at least trying read and research a bit, may help, but I doubt it.

...but we have 50 devs "making" our own stuff, sometime we take a vendors products, and customise the hell out of it, or we start from the ground up. Yes we still buy a lot of the off the shelf stuff, but why invent the wheel?

The other issue, is when it's custom made, if the guy that wrote it buggers off, and there is little or know documentation, it leaves a whole load of shit behind....just look at the banks for a classic example of this.
