as well as sending them a copy on a floppy disc (although who has a floppy drive these days?)
I think it's called irony.

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.
...pretty much every company I know has a dress "code".
If your in a public facing (by public that includes any sort of client), you are expected to be smart.
Other departments can be more casual, but there is a different between casual and scruffy.
Clothes that show to much flesh (short shorts, crop tops etc) are a no-no as are clothes with rude words or offensive logos.
On my site, you have the banner to accept or decline with a link to what we use them for (stat's mainly.
If you accept, you get the option to turn it of again if you want.
If you decline 90% of the site works fine, some bits don't work, but nothing major.
Unlike The Reg that sets them if you want them or not and puts in a banner saying, we've set them so tough shit.
There is a "good" way and a bad"way. Take your choice.
They would reboot, but they are still on hold waiting to get through.
You also have to remember allied bombing / sabotage and supply shortages played a big part in slowing down the German efforts. The US had no such issues.
So AFC Kredieten get hacked, but AFC Kredieten don't care as AFC Kredieten says they are not AFC Kredieten customers, yet AFC Kredieten were holding their information.
Yet AFC Kredieten says it will not affect AFC Kredieten's credibilty.
Well AFC Kredieten must have a really low credibility rating if they thing the gutter is a good place.
1 line but nearly got a full house.
"when I reached out to them about the problem.."
you should of said:
"when I reached out to them about the challenge.."
Oh please, don't give a crap excuse of "what if they forget"
FFS you could set it to 20 attempts and still defeat this. Or, I know it's crazy and new, but add a delay? Each time the delay doubling in length.
It like the last 30 years of computing never happpened.
I've been sourcing laptops and pc's recently with A6's and A10's and they have been very happy with them.
Because contrary to popular belief, the head is not normally the warmest exposed part, especially if you have a lot of hair.
I tend to get bitten on the back of the neck.
....seriously can we send some chief constables to jail for a month or two for this sort of thing.
How is the DNA retention going? Still breaking the law on that?
To AC and his free choice of not having kids.
I'm so glad you chose not have children and not want to give paid maternity leave.
In return, can we choose for our kids not to fund your pension and health care when you retire, so you can live your happy, self centred existence living in gutter before you die penniless.
If you think YOU are paying for YOUR future, you may want to go and learn some VERY basic economics.
or they could give more paid maternity leave?
"CloudFlare states that they won't take down sites until a court order demands it"
And nor should they.
You'd be pissed if someone said you were a criminal (unproven in court) and your website was involved in this activity (unproven) and so taken down at the request of some random person in somewhere in the world.
...a far less inflammatory stance on Cloudflare than Andrew's article.
which was odd given that The Reg uses it.
....of upgrading his internet connection from 56k dial up?
Oh do grow up.
"even on my slowest ultrabook with an I5 4200u and 240GB ssd, it took less than 15 minutes including the reboot."
Some of us have better things in life to spend money on.
I have a piece of crap system, but it does what I need to do. I spend my workday in IT, then some charitable work on odd days. After that I really don't give a toss about IT.
You may want to invest in an Microsoft Phone. It comes complete with a spell checker.
Or you may want to finish school before coming onto these forums with grown ups.
Free speech? Only if you are a god fearing white man maybe?
You can be a white "Christian" and hurl abuse in the street at every gay & black person passing by and say they should be burnt at the stake. But I challenge you to put a prayer mat down at the site of 9/11 and start praying to Allah.
Free speech? In your dreams.
"Or would you prefer a news service that hushed up stories they had a personal stake in"
No, best would be one that sorts the bloody problem.
Flash on the Reg?
Next you'll be saying they have insecure sign in pages, 3rd party tracking cookies, missing Alt tags from images, not using https to protect privacy......
Do as we say.....
the BBC are reporting it...
They BBC, you know, one of the worst offenders out there!.
Oh the hypocrisy.
Remember, Apple, the darling of the nineties pretty much went to the wall before they were bailed out.
...except when it comes to sucking up to the political elite.
..(as my work one is shit).
But with Winphone, it makes no difference what App you take the photo with as it syncs the Photo folder (camera roll & saved photos). But it's pretty easy to turn off.
This sort of sounds similar, but a lot more clunky to do (no change there).
"When's the last time anyone actually got pulled out of a moving car and hijacked"
But a few thousand a year.
"I work in software, I know it can have bugs. What I don't understand however is why software updates aren't a standard part of the car service process if the software is so important now"
Maybe you need a CHEAPER car:
"Check for any updates recommended by Hyundai and perform these free of charge."
"As opposed to being hardware link by a rod.
Conceptual design fail."
That would be the rod you slid a hook onto and yanked up to gain access?
Remove the rose tinted glasses, yes the software security is crap, but WAY better than the old days when you could open a car with a house key, tennis ball or just a good hard smack.
"It’s positive to see automotive firms taking the proper steps to address evolving criminal threats."
What wait a few years until it gets so hard to insure them, that people probably stop buying them THEN do something about it?
I must remember these key things when looking for a new bank account.
1. Ability to wave expensive device around in public to possibly save 5 seconds.
2. Everything else.
Odd, I always thought Apple had "shortages" when they launch a product.
Ah you forgot their No1 skill. Marketing.
You can do anything you want, so long as you do exactly as we say and to our design specs.
You do know you can have security without propriety hardware and software?
These use unknown exploits, therefore how do you prove you have a trojan if nothing detects it?
Just your single rad will cost more than your house
