Your name not Bruce then? That's going to cause a bit of confusion...
Australia's security service grinds to a halt because a computer system locks out their chief due to an administrative oversight.
I used to wait for a trade show and go to a booth to see when a new version of some software would be released - in 1986 - now we have this other thing called an internet to tell me.
Disappointed to discover that ".is" isn't the country code for Israel. Then they could have got the "is.is" domain name
It worked better than opposing them.
Certainly if you wanted a job in the police or government.
Male IT workers are the last crowd you can be bigotted about.
You can even make a prime time TV series about how nerdy and unsocial they are. Imagine if you were to try and make a TV show about how catholic priests were all misogynistic drunken perverts.
Sorry should have been virtualization - damn autociorrect
At most US shows the booth babes are actually more use.
They are usually hard working actors/models/waitresses who will explain that they don't work there and will try and find somebody who does. The actual employees, even if sober and not hungover, have been sent to a show in Vegas/SF as a reward for selling the most units that month in Podunk.
Even if they could give a damn about your question they are slightly less qualified to answer it than the half naked women body-painted with the corporate logo.
And the people that worked with the NSA to subvert the security of standards are giving advice on security.

If you are an author you don't need to care about layout - that's what you have publishers, editors and cover designers for.
It's like saying a composer should use a mixing desk because they need to know what level of compression will be used when they music is played on Radio3.

Australia has the right idea - put the politicians in jail, it's simpler and safer for everyone.
The police banned an Iraqi born doctor from taking AS level chemistry to re-qualify in Britain because of concerns the information might be useful to terrorists.
Presumably German BMW engineers visiting the new Mini plant aren't allowed to see any details of the car in case they learn how to build tanks.
Youtube is an American company
1,The Met's oyster card doesn't go that far
2, American have a Constitution with guarantees of freedom of speech and all sorts of other 'age of enlightenment' improvements.
3, Criticism of America "may" itself be a terrorism offence.
Greed is the only bit of macro-economics that works - the problem is that the rest of it is politics.
Economists make announcements based on ideology - that's why economics is not a science.
Werner von Bran (not a lefty) and Sergei Korolev (hero of the soviet union) make a rocket engine in the same way, but ask an economist if 2% inflation is bad and it depends on which political religion they are.
An assistant would also be under a "work for hire" contract.
Otherwise the camera operator would own the copyright for each Holywood movie
>Seriously, WTF is a phase diagram?
It shows the range of temperatures and pressure at which beer and tea both exist in a drinkable form.
>But these figures are about the ridiculous ICT GCSE. That's all about using computer software.
So a more accurate headline would be:
"The top-bracket young Word users/secretaries of the 2020s will be mostly GIRLS"
(g) is an Irish person
Revision (updated July 2005) - for "Irish" read "Muslim"
But you thought those shots of laser guided bombs hitting buildings were cool though?
Kill one person and it's disgusting evil video, carpet bomb a jungle killing 1000s and it's the background to a pop video.
Or, according to one Snowden leak, read the Linux Journal
But an allied general shooting a Vietnamese prisoner in the side of the head is an iconic moment?
Does it come down to which side is getting killed ? So Watching "Das Boot" is a war crime
Rocket motors aren't explosive - unless you are very unlucky - they are deflagration.
I believe experimental rocketry is well supported in Germany, you just have to point the rockets north-west and not care "where they come down"
Isn't the point of Europe that you can't have little local laws (like only French cars being allowed in France) anymore ?
Nobody makes fun of him because we know he IS a Bond villain.
>Since when has George Soros been associated with espionage activities?
Bill Gates is now a good guy, Maxwell is dead and nobody can take the idea of Beardie Branson as a Bond villain seriously so he's all that's left
> gotta love communist engineering.
How are we getting into space these days?
Dedicated ebook reader = cheap, charge lasts months, can read in sunlight
Phone = have one anyway, always with you, keep it charged, But small screen can't read in sunlight
Tablet = already own one or buy $50 cheap slow 7" one. But poor battery, can't read in sunlight
Dedicated ebook tablet = expensive, don't already own one, poor battery, don't always carry it, can't read in sunlight. Why am I buying this?
Careful - somebody in dear old blighty just got nicked for doing that sort of thing.
That's why lawyers would advise you to write to the owners of all websites requestign permission to access the site and read each page.
You can find the address of the company on the web site

To unbolt a stop sign I have to visit your town and be visible on the street by the stop sign with a spanner for a significant time.
To do this attack on all and any city in america I just need to be one of a billion anonymous people sitting at a computer in a country on the other side of the Pacific.
Tricky not to mess up though.
If it's exclusive and hard to get, nobody has heard of it, employers don't demand it, so nobody gets it.
If it becomes too popular, people don't respect it, so good employees don't bother doing it.
I'm available, but it's going to take some photoshop work to make my "rack" look anything other than fat and hairy
And you are posting this on a social media/networking site aimed largely at old fart computer geeks ?
Remember the Steven Lawrence case, where after the police got a wrist slap they sent undercover agents to befriend the family of the victim in the hope of digging some dirt to get revenge after the enquiry?
Might have made somebody a little touchy
Given that the disciplinary punishment for shooting a suspect while in custody is generally not being allowed to choose the chocolate biscuit with you tea for a week - the dismissals are a bit of a shock
Thefts of more than x100quid get counted as major thefts in their statistics
So they halve the number of burglaries by diligent policing but a 1000 people get their iPhone nicked and the local paper runs a story about 1000% increase in major crime and the Chief Constable feels embarrassed down the lodge.
Stop people nicking phones and it doesn't matter how many burglaries there are - your stats go down.
0000? that's the sort of password an idiot would have on their luggage (or their nukes)
Serious bands with real lyrical and musical ability didn't go in for these sort of publicity stunts.
They just released an inflatable pig from a powerstation
They were doing our corporate video last week on a Canon 5D
They still shout "cut"
The issue is that you can't drop something from the ISS to earth.
The ISS is in orbit doing 7km/s 'sideways' if you drop something it is also doing 7km/s sideways.
Everything going 7km/s sideways is going to stay in the same orbit.
If you want it to go down you need to reduce its sideways-speed
You could just halt yourself and then fall gently (assuming you had a parachute) but to do this you need to get rid of the 7km/s. One way to do this is to have an engine capable of reaching 7km/s the other way. However a moments thought will realise that this is the same size as the rocket that it took to do the original 7km/s - which you would have to carry with you.
This is the reason for doing the spectacular "re-entry", it is to use the Earth's atmosphere to burn off that extra speed rather than carry the fuel and engines needed
They both use the same password - F***OBAMA
Would dragons be repatriated to an independent Scotland?
If it's the aircraft carriers that can't have a catapult to launch planes and can't land VTOL ones - we have all heard it.
