Grrr... It really makes me mad.
How about they make their own software a little more"standards compliant", and then perhaps we wouldn't have these sort of situations?
What's that you say? Lock in. Never heard of it. Now hand over your cash every month, like a good sheep.
No, that's called backfill.
Mind your backs.
Over 90% of intrusion attempts on my server trace to .ru IP blocks. Mostly "academic" blocks, at that. Do they run hacking courses at Russian Universities?
Re: £29 e-reader dodgy marketing?
I ordered one online with B&N, but without registering for an account. Failed after a couple of minutes with a "payment refused" message.
Tried again after registering, with the same card, and I now have a "scheduled to ship" email.
That'll do for me.
Mum will be getting my Kobo.
+1 for Pan Yan pickle
Why can't anyone find the recipe?
Re: Worthwhile charity
Not only that, but that £400+k was divvied up between just seven "employees", two of whom earned over £70k.
And WTF is Social Security payments about? If it's National Insurance payments, call it that.
Does the lowly secretary earn fifty grand a year?
This is not a "proper" charity in my book, and the ten quid I was going to sponsor Lester with will be going to National Coastwatch Institution's local branch. Nobody gets paid there. In fact, it costs them money to help.
Re: Finished with ElReg
Thanks for registering, just to say goodbye. Mr city trader QAZXSW
Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
P.S. Great article by the way Al. ;o)
Preferring to see Hawkwind over The Smiths or Mr. Zed is nothing to be ashamed of. I saw them in the late 70s, and they were feckin' excellent. The 50 odd Liberty cap mushrooms may have helped. :o)
What was that noise?
That was the sound of that article going completely over my head.
<<< Me feeling tired and emotional, after trying to decipher that lot...
The leader of Lulzsec?
And I'm the leader of Anonymous.
Plod. See icon.
@ Colin. What's that smell?
Ah yes, protectionism...
Re: PREY ALONE
Cheers for that!
Not a bad use of 15 minutes of my time.
Not sure it would have needed a farm for the CGI. Maybe an allotment, or a small green-house? ;o)
I'd ask "Have you tried switching her off and on again?"
It happened on my fiftieth birthday.
A day that I, and many others will never forget.
R.I.P. all who died that dreadful day.
Re: Sounds like they asked for it...
Sounds more like they are a bunch of cunts.
Outrageous behaviour. Hope the twat who sanctioned this gets the gooner... (Colloquialism for "the sack").
Defeating online attacks is simple...
Keep the systems offline.
Cheques to the usual address please.
So what, indeed...
So, almost as good as most linux distros then, who release updates to all repository software A.S.A.P.
It's a start, I suppose.
Now. About those re-boots...
Pope shits in the wood?
The one who ducked out before the major shit hits the fan, or one of his illustrious predecessors who at least had the decency to die?
Re: Turning the question on its head.
Turning the firewall on its head might be a better idea.
e.g. US IP > /dev/nul
Is that some sort of executive relief for visiting Germans?
The one with baby wipes in the pocket.
</Wipes tea from screen, desk, keyboard, phone and chin.>
Nice of you to make the effort Andrew...
So, we should all just buy an iDevice then?
That bloke, top right...
Looks like he's plotting something really nasty...
Like a paisley shirt.
WTF is a Mom?
Is it an acronym for something?
Massively Over-reacting Munters perhaps?
Re: A curious amnesia
The less said about those abominations, the better.
We had one in the works Simca van in the late 70s, and it ate tapes at an alarming rate. That and the constant track switching, frequently in the middle of a song. WTF! And you couldn't record on them.
We switched to the radio when it had eaten all my mate's cartridges...
But Andrew, I thought you liked lawyers...
Now you see where this "sue 'em all" attitude gets you.
As for the fines, they should be paid by the people in charge, not the "licence payer".
I've left the summons in your coat pocket.
Re: Scrap metal
I took a couple of old dead car batteries to my local scrappy the other week, rather than giving them to the local council, and they insisted on taking my name, address and car registration number. They then took my bank details as they could only pay by BACS.
The money was in my account before I got home.
An unscrupulous dealer would have difficulty (I presume), shifting any quantity of untraceable metals.
Assuming, of course, that any official checks are ever carried out without a complaint being made...
As an aside, a pre-1990 domestic copper hot water cylinder is now worth more as scrap than it cost new...
Most definitely not a 6310i.
The original article mentions an 8850.
Looks a bit pointy edged to me. Ouch!
Re: bark of Saint Peter
Not bark, 'B' ark.
Looks like a baby dinosaur to me...
One of those cute little ones.
No wait, there's hundreds of them... Aaarrggghhh...
It's the only way to be sure.

Re: Only satisfied customer?
I've been with TT since '08, and I'm just about to sign up for another year. They always give me a cheaper deal than the year before, and my 22Mb line has never given me any problems.
Until this weekend...
You are not alone, there's two of us! ;o)
P.S. Seems fine today, back to its usual nippy self.
Correct Sir. Certainly for your first paragraph.
I know that old Land Rovers had handbrakes that worked on the rear drive shaft, so if it was in 4WD it was a 4 wheel handbrake...
As the father of a teenage daughter...
I hope I have educated her well enough to realise that anything she posts online, or texts / emails could come back to bite her, possibly years from now.
Whether other parents take such actions seems to be the problem.
Education begins at home!
Re: It's amusing to watch...
Shooting themselves in the foot?
Or both feet?
Sorry guys. And I know it's really quite clever, but...
I have a metre long 10mm bit that cost me about 8 quid ten years ago. Couldn't you have just thought a little longer / deeper?
Too bleeding edge for me...
I have toyed with Fedora a few times, but it is just too bleeding edge for my tastes.
Centos 6.3 on servers. (And some clients with Gnome 2) 5 year support FTW! 10 years at a push.
Ubuntu Mint or Mint Debian Edition with Mate or Cinnamon DE for most home users. I used to be a big Ubuntu fan, even an evangelist, but they fucked up big time with Unity for me. I personally stopped system upgrading at 10.04.
Fedora fans, strap yourselves in, and fill your boots!
I remember, way back in the mid-late nineties, early 00s, installing many of their Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) in OOH Doctor's cars nationwide, along with Vodafone Paknet Pads and Brother 12v printers.
Time moves on.
Make ready my 88mm please, Jeeves.
Re: If you want cheap
+1 for the emachines jobby. I'm using one as my general pc. Low power consumption, more than powerful enough for general net stuff, plus HDMI and optical audio output. Not too good for a build machine though. Apparently, it's an Acer inside.
I paid £120 for mine. Rats.
Re: No need for lots of base stations - leaky coax
Spot on David!
I worked underground during the construction of the channel tunnel, and can confirm that they used a "leaky feed."
30+ reception everywhere. DSC too.
Best money I ever earned.
@ David Hicks RE: Stemcor
Perhaps a more relevant question would be "how does a poorly paid MP manage to acquire £1,800,000 worth of shares in said company"???
Seems the obvious icon.
