S5 Air view
Tried the WSUS thing but have you seen the load it puts on a VM. Sophos patch management is a bit better but meh... I wish they would just gice nice and give a nice easy 'No thanks' button.
Perhaps a nice regular X would be easier to hit?
At least they had something in place to mitigate the attack that they knew would eventually happen given the past attacks on xbox live etc.
Shame it backfired but as a learning experience I'm guessing others will be using the same cache style system to keep gamers playing so they can ignore the in laws, parents, kids etc
Off topic but got a nice xbox for Christmas from the Mrs. Took an hour to install assassins creed and start playing. Something not right there when you could sick a cd in a ps1 and be playing in less than a minute :/
I can see a time when we have most machines air gapped with just a few connected to 'the net' you know so you can Google the exploit or fix you were exposed to last week, month,year etc.
As far as I know the chats are encrypted and what's app can't can't access the contents of the messages.
Is this still the case after being bought by Facebook ?
Spend it on half decent public toilets that are open 24 / 7 you plonkers !
I will not have any networked computer system on this ship.
Must be a huge attack to take out a network with a 100Gbit/s backbone ?
If it is a private network how hard can it be to isolate the points that are being attacked and limit connections in order to protect the rest of the network.
I'm a noob at attacks of this scale.
Would be nice to see an update on the front page.
They had a small issue with mail sent from their servers having the sent from address as user@on.Microsoft.realdomain.com
I think it was related to active directory sync with azure but seemed to sort itself out.
We don't use the cloud so the only complaints I had were from my users getting NDR's for non existent address's
Just tried it.... it's crap.
Told me that WiFi is not holding back my broadband speed but there are other access points using the same channel. I'm round the pub.
WiFi Analyzer is much better and probably didn't cost £££££££££ to develop.
I made a tenner when I was 7 or 8 at Christmas. Bet all the adults I could show them a completed cube in 30 seconds if they handed me a messed up one. I had two that year ;)
Stop using American companies to host your data. Host it all either on site or with uk only companies.
Oh hang on..... how do I stop those w7 / 8 machines updating to 10 again :/ I am hoping that WSUS makes it obvious !
Says it all really, they have you by the short and dangleys and relying on server 2012 backup to vhdx is not much better.
Pipex and Nildram were fine and their customer support was great. The same obviously can't be said for the new owners :/
Pipex were great quite a few years ago, since then a few sell outs have happened and now we are a talk talk business customer :/
Thank god our main connections are via magic wifi type antenna on the roof from a local supplier! The adsl we have with talk talk is just a backup..... will be replaced soon methinks. 50Mb uncontested connection with 5x ip address for £50 a month ain't bad :)
UDP maybe to a static ip but not sure ?
Hell use a blinking led to signal ok and a LDR to read the state. Easy air gap there, you could even stick a bit of fibre optic cable between the two. Not exactly rocket science.
Looks awesome but it must be tiny to fit in to a modern smart phone while keeping the existing battery, they must have taken something out to make space ?
I just hope they don't get bought out by Apple preventing the tech from going mainstream in all portable devices.
One off payment with unlimited clients and you can host it yourself on a Centos vm. Left log me in and teamviewer 12 months ago and not missed them one bit. The connection for new clients is faster as well.
I guess they mean the bit that shows up before you click install.
Wtf, I'm going down for 10 years for sharing gorillas in the mist on bit torrent ?
It's not funny, I see this a few times a month with embedded print controllers that have touch screens. I have a bag of cmos batteries and a tiny keyboard in the car to 'fix' it. :/
Still it pays the wages :)
It's lettuce Jim, but not as we know it.
Doesn't taste that good Bones.
Damn it Jim. I'm an doctor not a botanist.
After upgrading everything possible to win 8 from mostly xp and almost finished migrating to server 2012 the gits throw windows 10 into the mix.
No I can't move to penguin land unfortunately :/ (our service management and support systems run on Centos vm's but anything the boss needs to see is flipping windows).
Good article though but I may wait until 10.1 before the 'free' upgrade :)
There should be 2 copies made during the interview, one for the prossecution and one for the defence. Did they manage to lose both of them ?
Not so much 2 copies but 2 originals just to get that straight.
I must be the only person that finds it hard to stay awake when I'm a passenger in a car. Actually driving the thing takes a lot more concentration and effort compared to sitting there and watching the scenery go past.
I would rather have full control to keep me awake than struggle to stay awake for hours on end as a passenger and be expected to take control without notice to avoid a collision etc. Not for me until it is responsible for is own no claim bonus and can drive me home from the pub etc.
I have to admit though the Honda collision mitigation system is quite impressive, I had to try really hard to hit the cardboard boxes in the car park. Took 4 goes and a lot of throttle to eventually hit them lol.
'as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone'
I would like proportional representation instead of first past the post. Nuts now I'm a terrorist for my extreimist views along with most of the smaller political parties etc
Will prevent me accessing the work phone when I have 'finished work' and round the pub chilling out !
I would like to know how BT, Plusnet and others that supply handy credit sized cards, stickers or in the case of BT a plastic thingy that you can pull out of the wifi router would respond to this ?
Do I really need to tell my customers, family etc to throw all those handy reminders away and change the passwords? I don't know anyone that has changed then from default because the cards etc are Just there and (the assumption is that they are unique) easy to access.
What happens if the isp 'looses' the details ? They will have a record of them or maybe the company that prints the stickers will etc.
Hangouts, try not accidentally hitting the video call button ! You can't disable it either.
Facebook now own Whats App, was really good but another ad agency spying on what should be private communications.
Skype, Ms just following the pack and will eventually lock you in somehow.
Alternatives that work across platform and are easy to install ? I am all ears.
'BY using this technology Intel anticipates a 10TB SSD coming in late 2016 early 2017.'
Nice if you can afford it, at the current rates it would cost around £3500 for 10 TB of SSD and that's consumer level stuff.
You can get 16TB of spinning rust for about £350 and spend the change on a nice controller and SSD or RAM cache.
Foxit pdf is fine and in some ways better than Adobe Reader but please please please don't blame your printing issues on the printer until you have tried it with the Adobe version :/
Don't know why but I get several calls a month relating to missing lines, missing images or long print times with the foxy version.
If anyone can provide a fox sorry fix I am all ears. .. like a fox or something.
I intentionally use 128GB SSD for my users computers, it's the easiest way to ensure that they keep their files on the server and not their bloody pc !
I can swap a pc or just tell them to log on to another one if they keep their files in the correct location ffs.
In the grand scheme of things 75000 subscribes is very small, still I wouldn't mind them being transferred to a BT wholesale account. .. hold on I'm just filling in the paperwork. ..should be an isp in 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. Shitty reseller ISP with one member of support staff is GO !
On a more serious note. If you make £1 profit per subscriber a month that's serious wonga !
I remember copying code into Blitz Basic on the Amiga 500, it took my uncle to point out that the REM parts were just notes to explain what the code was doing (I was 8 give me a break). He gave me some of his old programming books and they were much better than Amiga Format for actually learning what you were typing.
These days of unlimited Internet, mobiles and tablets make consumption too easy and programming looks like it has an almost vertical learning curve. Take video streaming away for a week and see what happens?
They need to point kids that are interested to places like code academy etc even if they just learn the basics of html they may move on to php and mysql, then they realise they can do some awesome (for geeks ) stuff in a few hours that works on all their devices.
You don't need a masters to write code !
I have one on my USB stick.... it's my car keys ;)
I remember my first day on guard duty when attached to the Grenadier Guards. I didn't recognise the RSM on his motorbike and asked him to remove his helmet and produce his ID card. To be fair he was really nice about it and the guard sergeant made me a coffee because 'you got balls of steel mate'.
I don't understand why people refuse to show ID, the security guards are just doing their job. It's like a computer thinking ahhh nuts to it I don't need the password, you entered the right username and I can't be arsed checking. ..
Work phone is on EE and apart from the patchy coverage along some parts of the M4 I don't have any issues. The fact that I can add extra data in a few seconds is much better than the previous contact with Orange, though accounts don't like the extra on the bill I don't have to pay and claim it back :p
There are some areas without coverage but my personal mobile on O2 rarely gets a better signal.
Sounds better than me trying to sing it on karaoke round the pub !
Next up the Goodyear sorry Amazon balloon as a mobile depot that launches the drones with a few operators on board. From that height line of sight is plausible even if the drone is a tiny speck in the distance.
Or maybe not....
The 'upgrade' to Yosemite borked the print system for one on my customers using Vectorworks :/ Their IT deny responsibility and it took the install of another copier for a week to prove it wasn't the bloody machine that was at fault. Ducking Apple Grrrrr !
That seems a little steep for a tiny car !
I just got upgraded to a 1.6 diesel civic 2015 model and it's not much slower than my previous 2006 2.2 diesel civic (or the frv with the same 2.2 engine). It sure as hell feels quicker off the mark but a little less enthusiastic around the speed limit. The biggest improvement is getting it under the 95 / mile c02, saves a whack on tax and the purchase price was less than the yaris.
Sexual or racial orientation should not matter. Chelsea is a human being and 35 years for essentially telling the truth is ridiculous !
The whole country is going soft. Man the fuck up.
I should add that if you would prefer to woman up I'm also fine with that OBVIOUSLY.
Any opinion you may think I have is just your interpretation of my views. You are probably wrong and I will not be held responsible for your incorrect conclusions. If you don't like it punch yourself in the face or just ignore me.
Has AMD / ATI got anything that compares to this ?
The integrated AMD APU are awesome for general Win 8 ui compared to their Intel counterparts (price point) I'm just hoping they haven't dropped the ball with the high end stuff.
Would be nice to see some numbers even if they are totally out of the game and going the way of Cyrix.
My daughter gets on well with her IT teacher but is 13 so will probably miss out. I have asked her to have a word and get any extra devices that may end up as coasters etc. Fingers crossed we can get one or more to actually use constructively!
Aka we haven't improved anything just screwed around with the ui..... again.
While they are at it why not force sky to give their broadband customers the username and password so they can dump the POS router that sky supply and replace it with something half decent !
Would it not be easier to run some cat 6 stp through the door once it has docked ? Or maybe have the connector designed into the docking mechanism. Not sure if wi fi would work up there but if anyone could explain why not I would be very interested ! ( shielding from interference I expect).
Not my field. .... I spent a few hours today contemplating how soft close copier doors work with springs and pistons, awesome !
Probably won't work but....
Instead of landing on a hard surface perhaps a heat proof fabric attached to floating pontoons would be a bit easier on the craft if it went a bit wonky like last time ? Even a huge net would make for an easier landing Until the tech is perfected.
