I've got it on already .....

"early indications are that no members of the administration were behind or complacent in the attack"

NHS tears out its Oracle Spine in favour of open source

my farts clear the room

What they really need is a national pki system .....

It could cut through the nhsmail is more secure nonsense and be an enabler for encryption, digital signing and could be used nationally as an NHS P2P identification factor.

Writing as someone currently battling with Vodafone (formerly Careless and Worthless) - they run the nhsmail heldesk - and trying to get them to explain to me why they delete my outbound email and then don't even do me the courtesy of notifying me that they've done it .... I have limited faith that the national infrastructure will ever really work.

Shocking really. I wonder if this means they'll be improving the documentation on the opensource projects they take from .....

Microsoft watches iPads flood into world's offices: Right, remote desktop clients. It's time

my farts clear the room

I tried loads of ios rdp clients before finding one that was both free and supported rdp gateways.

The freerdp client is more flaky than the all but identical Thinstuff RDC app (which is still a bit flaky).

Neither is as good on an ipad as logmein, but they've been useful for getting me out of a hole in the past

Japan's free public VPN project tunnels through Great Firewall

my farts clear the room

its tcp over udp and it installs in user space .....

This is terrifying, the underlying software - softether - installs in user space specifically to circumvent the IT department (or lack there of) and provide individual staff their own VPN back into the office.

It works via outbound SSL tunnels so it gets through virtually everything ..... it can be installed by any idiot that can click next ...... it bypasses your firewall and network policies ..... and a single checkbox joins in with the public VPN Gate volunteers

This could already be running on your network with your staff running it!

I am a well practiced regarder of beans .....

3 for a tenner suggests that the beans are small. I am not a small bean regarder, although I have been known to flick beans and have found they sometimes get bigger.

What do your magic beans do when flicked?

What if I'm asked who I am and refuse on data protection grounds

What if I'm askd who I am by a policeman and refuse to consent to him tsaking my details and recording them?

Can I opt out on data protection grounds? what legitimate exclusions to the dpa do they have if I refuse to consent to them having my data?
