Can you re-write that with better grammar? I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say.

Nice piece, but seriously...
Why would you censor an article about Richard Pryor?
A Content Delivery Network.
Re: CDNs don't play nice with HTTPS
I used to have that problem frequently, but lately (last couple of years) I've only seen this on one site, and it took them about 4 months from my report to their fix.
Does it matter?
Except for my old Nokia phones (personal) and a Motorola StarTac (work), I've yet to have a cell phone outlive its contract.
It is air-gapped
That's what the cellular interface is for.
That's OK, everyone laughs in English.
RF kills bees?
So putting a transmitter at the hive entrance is probably the best way to kill them all, right?
I'm not pointing the finger at you
But aren't you and your fellow employees collectively 'your employer' that you don't trust?
Re: Seems obvious.
JSON and XML are both fine on a 1G LAN. Over any restricted connection (delay/bandwidth) they're, by definition, inefficient.
that's one way to verify valid email addresses...
I don't remember if I ever signed up at AshleyMadison. I don't remember doing that, but I don't care any more, either.
Doesn't the other table have his address and credit card info?
The explosion was in the wrong city.
Re: So this begs the question
What do you mean "I'm holding it wrong."?
Re: Selling my details
Can you use the "right to be forgotten" law to get them to delete your information.
I'm loathe to agree with the author
But I agree with Andrew.
James Bond implies Aston Martin
I know he's driven a swimming Lotus and an flying AMC, but his car is an Aston Martin.
Does Dr Chenxi Wang live in a glass house? I don't know, or care, of she's married, so I don't know of her husband's email address is on the list. but the blame for being identified as a user of AM should be primarily on the site's users, and secondarily on the hackers,
Also, I wonder of either of the Clinton's are on the list.
Re: Fine mayhaps?
Wait until AT&T owns them. Incidentally, do you think they'll bid against AT&T?
Re: Descisions (auburnman)
"I can't see autocars collaborating as a team in this instance. "
I can. After the identify that the same jackass has stepped into traffic three days in a row, the cars will conspire to sandwich the fucker and make sure he loses the ability to walk into traffic.......
Of course, on the next page, is my comment about how beauttiful it will be to drive manually after all of the autocars (ha) learn to avoid me and get out of my way...hmm...maybe I'll just stick to playing with automatic doors.
Re: Mandatory (Wilco)
"Therefore I'd expect that widespread adoption of this technology would lead to hundreds of people not dying, and thousands more not being injured."
How many of those survivors are rapists, murderers, alcoholics, drug abusers, and/or stupid?
How will we clean up the gene pool if they're no longer doing it themselves?
... except the recreational driver,...
How wonderful it will be when every other car on the road is computer controlled? It will be perfect, I won't have to slow down any more because they'll automatically get out of my way, and after a few days, I'll have the quickest commute in the city.
Fly a drone over southern England...and send the armed fighters to GCHQ.
Re: Surprised the statement didn't end
Does El Reg subcontract to the same proofreaders?
"We asked EE want the policy was on this..."
RPF is most of the answer
Is it feasable to use the returning missions to sweep parts of their orbit for debris? Even if they only capture one piece, I think it would be worth it.
Re: Suggestion: "Show me some ads"
But its so much fun. Haven't you ever listened to the 'pina-colada song'?
I don't actually hate ads, I hate distracting ads. You know, the kind that overlay, play audio/video, blink, scroll, etc. If an ad was a block of text (that didn't look like a circus poster), i wouldn't mind at all.
I don't watch much tv, and the tv I do watch contains cigarette breaks (the networks call them commercials) and bathroom breaks (the networks aslo call these commmercials) and food breaks (yes, still called commercials.) I don't typically drink beer, but Dos Equis' commercials are entertaining. I'm old enough to remember at least some Burma Shave signs, they were catchy and you knew how it was going to end as soon as you saw the first one, but you paid attention every 100 yards.
Because this is being inserted after the packets leave your device and before then exit your provider's network.
Is there a maximum length for an http header? If so, you could stuff if full and their additional cookie would either be ignored, or break it.*
* I found this on stackoverflow:
As vartec says above, the HTTP spec does not define a limit, however many servers do by default. This means, practically speaking, the lower limit is 8K. For most servers, this limit applies to the sum of the request line and ALL header fields (so keep your cookies short).
Apache 2.0, 2.2: 8K
nginx: 4K - 8K
IIS: varies by version, 8K - 16K
Tomcat: varies by version, 8K - 48K (?!)
It's worth noting that nginx uses the system page size by default, which is 4K on most systems
So, if you know what you're doing, you can certainly screw with them, but the chances of it breaking things is probably rather high, and of course, 5k-17k packets are going to be fragmented every time.
Re: Remember the storm of criticism about MS enable DoNotTrack by default?
When will they make it the default?
Re: Wow. Another chance for Geo-IP lookups to fail
Wasn't it a pushme-pullyou?
Re: Teens and music videos?
So you can buy porn in the UK before you turn 18?
Here in the US (Georgia), the age to: buy cigarettes is 21; buy alcohol is 21; have sex is 16; buy porn is 18.
Re: Won't somebody think of the parents???
You didn't read what the Baroness said:
"Movies in the cinema and music DVDs are age rated to inform the viewer and help parents to make informed choices..."
To me, this says that no theatre should be forced to prevent 12 year olds from watching 50 Shades of Grey, or from buying Grand Theft Auto IV.
Or did she mis-state something.
Re: This makes no sense!
You're excusing the masses for using unlicensed software? Why?
Internally found and fixed bugs probably don't get added to the CVE database.
Whether that's right or wrong...
Well, it could have been worse....
Android 6 Marmite
Android 6 Meringue
Android 6 Mayonaise
I could keep going..
can't you just log into the host and start your vcenter?
That's how I've had to do it in the past. I will claim the foresight of having an offline copy of my password database (encrypted, of course) so that I was actually /able/ to log into the host and restart the vcenter server via CLI. The other problem was, of course, that I then had to locate and start a domain controller in order for vcenter to be able to reach the hosts...needless to say, my planning since that night has been much more thorough.
PC/Laptop OEMs would revolt
That's my take on it.
Re: Learned behaviour
Why not send an audio SMS to your phone and require it you to play it within 2 minutes so the computer can validate it.
See, it works
You give a company a deadline, and when that deadline passes, you expose their flaws...and then they'll issue a patch.
Re: It's OK
If you're rich, you can afford to pay the toll and drive on an uncongested motorway. This also means that you can get a little more sleep because you don't have to get up quite so early. You will also spend less on fuel because you'll be getting better mileage, and your brakes will lasts longer, etc.
Re: I think there is a page or two in Knuth on what a fucking stupid idea this is
But that wouldn't be nearly as fun.
Re: moralism and the bubblewrap generation
Do you mean "on that train that just passed you in the other direction?"
Surprise fucking surprise...
Re: I rather like the dry reporting..
"policing in the US *is* indeed a heck of a lot more dangerous do to gun ownership'
No, its a heck of a lot more dangerous because values, ethics, morality and education are too expensive.
I like it!

Re: How do names get on these lists?
Or, better yet, the names of all Harvard students... I'm sure someone at MIT could come up with a way to do that. I think that would be funnier that a weather ballon on the 50-yard-line.
