ACCC clears copper for the NBN

Re: Beaurocracy-speak for fiddling while Rome burns?

It was. Originally I was going to go into a detailed explanation for the reasons behind it. However, there is a very concise way of summarising why this is such as F**k up.

Politicians got involved

Shadow of the Beast: Amiga classic returns from the darkness

FozzyBear

The amiga!

man brings back memories, started on the a500 then later got the A3000. Firstly the games, then the programming, and then I discovered these things called BBS's and they had these interesting pictures on them. Talk about frustrating waiting for a picture to download on a 14K modem.

We need to know about the Internet of Things, say US Senators

FozzyBear
Angel

I am predicting in the near future

The next person that goes on a shooting spree and blames their toaster, 'cause god was speaking through it. Instead of showing them their nice new fashion accessory, a nice white jacket where the extra-long sleeves wrap around the waist, the investigating authorities will have dozens of forensic experts tearing their house apart.

That will set the paranoia levels to 11

If IT isn’t careful, marketing will soon be telling us what to do

FozzyBear
IT Angle

Huh!

What goes around comes around. This scenario is nothing new, the buzz words and jargon are, the scenario is not. It has always been a balancing act between IT and the business.

Some Marketing, Sales or business drone has read an article on the latest and greatest bit of vapourware and wants it operational as soon as possible. It's the job of IT to bring some sanity and forward thinking to the process. Denying it outright is dangerous; not thinking about how it integrates into existing business and systems is disastrous. It’s the art of balancing these two extremes that is the key. Regardless though it’s IT that’s blamed for the failure. The other department if it succeeds.

It’s the way it was, is, and always will be.

Ex-Goldman Sachs programmer found guilty of code theft … again

FozzyBear

Scratch the surface

of a democracy and just below the surface you'll find that rules and laws are really not there to protect you and me or the other guy in the street. The laws are there to protect itself from you or me or the guy in the street. Check out double jeopardy in Australia , UK or US and it has so many loopholes or exceptions they could continue to proecute him til he dies of old age.

Why recruiters are looking beyond IT's traditional talent pool

FozzyBear

@ boltar

The last guy I worked with had an IT degree and was not shy in telling everyone about it. Gave him a small project to work on.(rework a stored procedure and view). Long story short after three weeks he finally admits that the reason it isn't finished is because he did not know SQL. The guy had a degree in Information and database management!

So, yes, I will take the Builder, or the electrician or guy/girl off the street rather than the likes of him, or YOU for that fact, because Id rather a honest hard worker than a pretentious twat like yourself. .

An intelligent poltician

Its quite sad that this sparks such a debate and cynical ( or are they hopeful) views. If only there was more politicians that like him with "useful" skills and degrees, rather than the mindless suit wearing drones we are all accustomed too.

30 years on: The day a computer glitch nearly caused World War III

FozzyBear

He may down play his actions

The fact of the matter is, there are precious few people out there willing to disregard the idiocy the computer screen is telling them and make intelligent decisions on their own. Even worse, more and more people are willing to be lead blindly by the technology at their disposal even when that small part of the brain (common sense) is screaming at them not to do it.

Assange fails in bid for election to Australian Senate

Re: Go Palmer!

My thoughts exactly. Personally love to see a debate between him and Abbott. I'm sure Palmer would be able to throw in a reference to budgie smuggler somehow. It was this comment I was hoping for in the rudd v Abbott, but alas just boring policy crap.

You thought only Google dodges UK taxes? So do all the Brit firms

FozzyBear

Gromm

There's a difference between "minimising their costs" and "tax fraud".

That's right there is a big difference "tax fraud" indicates that you have broken a law to avoid taxes. "minimising their costs" indicates they are using existing loop holes in the legalisation to minimise the tax they need to pay.

Typically, the government sits a whines over this "gross" injustice rather than acting on closing the loop hole which they created in the first place.
