does it go from 0 - 60Mph?
I need a real key to open my garage door, is that less secure?
Well mine is a medical environment, but it's at a prelim stage of testing. i.e first day
I've called the application 24hr support and they said they were aware of no know issues
Where is the registry mod then?
I had to install this today on a new server installation today
The latest version of the application we use required installed this by default
It never gets any easier does it!!
Not me in my new car
I've never been informed and unless they hide it in the lease fee, then I've no idea
I never gave the dealership my mobile number, just home landline
Last year I went to Birmingham during the only real bit of icy weather
at 5am, I got a text, warning of icy condition on the roads locally.
The text said my reg number and was from from a number I didn't know
I can only guess my car swipped my mobile number by bluetooth when connected to the handsfree system.
What concerns me is that nowhere is there any mention of a mobile connection from my car or anything about mobile numbers. when I called the number it just said "Incoming calls not supported"
Hi mostly guys
I might be offered a 12 month temporary position overseas in the next few weeks
What I want to know is should I take the position
The deal is this, I have an established company that I earn enough to pay everything & have enough left over every month for my wife to safe about £500
The overseas position is 6k miles from the UK in a very remote location, They want my network, telecoms & IT skills and are offering £40k + travel, expenses, temp relocation, family relocation expenses for the duration, paid schooling for the children and a chance to relocate on a perm basis.
I'm completely overwelmed with this as it would mean shutting down my own business, selling our house & moving to a potentially temp position on an Island.
Do I sell up and shut everything down and maybe comeback to nothing?
I've been totally messed up all day about this, and it's doing my head in
If I go..
I'll never see my friends or family except maybe a couple of times a year
No more beers down the pub with my dad every Sunday
I don't think I'll be able to sleep the rest of the wee, as my wife says 'just do it'
Cheers for any sensible advice
Fly-Be actually send you an email after booking pointing out that Li-Ion batteries cannot be carried
I had booked 15Kg of hold luggage and this was for some spares & a change of clothes.
When I rang up to enquire about laptop & phones They said this is fine in hand luggage, so I asked if I could take a cordless drill with me. (Also Li-Ion) and they said it would have to be in the hold. I asked for an email confirming this.
So I arrived at the airport and checked in my bag, it was a tool case with the name and make of the drill & also mentions in large letters Li-Ion. The girl at checkin said sorry we are not supposed to carry them in the hold, but you can't take them as hand luggage, I showed her the email advising that I could take it and she said, 'Oh ok that must be fine then'
No issues what so ever
That should say Token Fobs not fibs
What would happen if I signed the official secrets act and was being forced to disclose a secured password. My employer would take a dim view and I could also be charged under the official secrets act.
I have several agreements I have signed in the past year that specifically do not allow me to had over passwords to 'ANY THIRD PARTY', under threat of prosecution should I do so.
If passwords to access servers etc have to be obtained using a mobile phone number and my own personal codes, this would be fine as I don't know the actual password until it's been sent via text. and these expire on logout. So would be useless anyway.
If the police had to investigate me, they would find numerous token fibs, and some defunct ones in draws or boxes from years ago, I'd hate to have to answer what they are all for becuase I can't remember.
We are approved to supply, and it's a bloody hard struggle to get approved
I do a lot of work for the NHS, the kit we supply is reasonably priced
Having said that, If I want a network point or fused spur point, it'll add maybe £3.5k to the project PER Department.
So we supply network cables & a plug on the kit when possible, to save costs for them.
It's not us that's charging for the Network or Power it's their internal works departments.
I required a server provisioned recently in a hospital data centre & the cost was accidently emailed to me, I really could have gone online and purcheased everything we needed for about £6k less.
It absolutely stupid!
Could I also join your cave club, I have to admit to having a facebook account, but it gets about 20 seconds of use every other day. Sometimes it's nice to see what the wife & kids are up to during the school holidays, and believe it or not I get a few messages from personal customers every few months that keeps me in beer money.
BTW I don't use twatter, I won't lower my standards that far.
There was a large carpark near one of our installations and an empty building nearby
The criminals had setup a jammer on 433.92Mhz to operate between 5pm & 10pm weekdays & all weekend
We operate monitoring equipment on that frequency and every day between 5 & 10pm and the weekend, we couldn't recieve any signals from the equipment.
I ended up sitting outside with a portable radio scanner for 2 evenings to figure it out, we contacted the police and the problem went away the next day.

"Personally I find it surprising that sort of unraveling of a messy dataset can be done at a range of tens of kilometres, but I certainly haven't the background to contradict them."
That was my point, geologists can determine magnetic field shifts, by looking at rocks. Did they have some expendable geologists on the craft that jumped out, drilled a core sample and measured the magnetic field reversals? I bet they were a happy bunch for about 1 second or until they vaporised.
Thats why i don't get it. I think you need actual rock samples to measure. Or am I completely wrong?
My Geologist friends are now complaining!
How can you tell a magnetic field is 4 Billion Years old?
If you're measuring the field it's like using a compass, so the magnetic field is now
As the craft hit the planet, how could they read age of the field?
It's not like they have a load of magnetic samples to compare
... When they pry it from my dead hands!
Hey El-Reg Stream the video, some of us like myself live in rural West Cornwall and can't take the time off to drive to London.
Why can't you stream the video?
We might have broadband by then! ;)
Should I dye all my wifes and let her use them or just dye them and flush them away?
Inquiring minds need to know, as she WILL ask why the boxes are emply
Hope it works for septic tanks, as we don't have mains sewers here!!! ;)

A few years ago if you were stupid enough to be looking for expensive boats or houses you could get hit, but the other day I was looking for a cheap air conditioning unit and the image files were trying to load executables.
I have a friend who remotely manages a rather large number of commercial Wind Farms.
He once showed me how secure they were, by 'dialing one up' analogue modem.This was maybe 5 years ago. Recently they have all had thier phone lines disconnected and it's all managed with a web interface. The scary part was him logging in and the u/n & p/w were the defaults with admin rights, and he said he wasn't allowed to change them, even if he could.
Put it this way, at least my router had a password even if it rubbish when I got it.
Login can be done from ANY internet access point, even a 3G dongle works no problem. The controller has no URL, just an IP Address, and that was in the UK range, a different IP Address for each site, that were stored in his favorites list.

I've been looking for half decent coverage around my house, this sounds just the thing
Wow do Google really have office on the Lizard?
I'll checkit out tomorrow on the way to my grannys
I've decided to do this in my office!
20U rack, 5Kva UPS, 2 HP 1U servers & 1 4U management Console
External Temp is 11.6c, Internal temp is 24.6c
Lovely and warm in here
Where is the 'to' in that sentence?
You lucky sod, I failed my Cycling Proficiency
All I've got is my birth & marriage certificates!
My best guess at the answer is....
A: Mobile Phone
Now where is my free family holiday to Florida with £1000 spending money?
Or anywhere south of Exeter would be easier, I'm not about to drive 5 hours to a speech and then 5 hours back again!
No access to the OBDII in my car, the previous owner cut the cables to it,
Now I wonder why they cut the cable? did they know something you guys know?
If some-one wants to mess with my 2001 Skoda, good luck to them
Apart from the two computers on my network, what on earth could they attack me with?
Should I buy a WiFi router just to be on the wild side?
8 million MPH - 93 Million Miles to travel isn't that 93/8 = 11.625 hours
how does that equate to 2-3 days?
You will be missed!
Is to install a 10Kva UPS in the next couple of weeks. (UPS is here, just need to re-cable house)
That will totally screw the stats from any smart meter they install wont it?
We suffer regular power outages, hence i'm up at 4am working due to a 6 hour power outage today.
Beer because - it doesn't need power and I don't have to work tomorrow
Naaa, the A303 is still the same around there!
I think that might still be my local, strange place!
Err maybe not then :(
It bloody works for me, why don't cloudy things I use, crash!
I wondered why my wife started talking, I thought I'd done something wrong!
Thank god for Ebay & Facebook, they keep her out of my hair ;)
That every luser out there uses password as their password?
Did somebody search google for google?
Just trying to decide what to tell the wife I'm buying into.
She doesn't like letting off rockets with our 7yo at the best of times!
Couldn't you do a "appears on CC bill as strip club" or something?
A bit like Microsoft Azure crashing out this morning in Northern Europe then!
I just gave up in the end, I think it's back now though!
Go And Do Something Less Boring Instead
I've been with my ISP since they first came into exsistance in 1995, Eclipse internet. I've moved house on numerous occasions and changed 'options' a number of times, depending on my needs.
I've recently started paying for my phone calls with them and I'm now saving on average £50 per month.
I still have to pay BT for line rental, but they do 'own' the wires after all and will fix usually within 24 hours. I would recommend eclipse to anyone who can get it in their area, customer service & support is pretty good.
Not sure if there would be a problem if I wanted to cancel, but as it's fast, reliable & cost effective, I don't see the need at the moment!
Can El Reg please expose the spanners please?
Last year i purchased a full set 5mm - 30mm Open & ring ended, now in the box are 5 left, and I haven't had the need to use any. (points accusingly at son)
Son swears blind he put them back in the box after use, so now i'm left with 5mm, 9mm, 27mm, 28mm & 30mm sizes that i have no idea what they might fit!
The rest appear to have de-materialised or turned into carpet mats for an Astra!
