Re: They did exist-
Bebo. A real Intergalactic Laxative.
But why helium
One of the few elements that will disappear forever. Really good to encourage youngsters to think about science and the tomorrows to come....shame the organisers don't do the same.
Most expensive hearing loss tool paid for. Is this a tax loss thing?
As for music streaming.... surely the geeks employed by Appfelsaft could have aye Tunes do this...hang on. Doesn't this exist already?
Jeez. 3 Bs!!! Looks like mushrooms are back in favour.
Re: More importantly...
Was watching a demonstration the other week of how raptors (feathered type!) can be trained by dropping lures from quadcopter.
Set up a flying pattern of direction and varying heights then have it drop the lure at a set way point before the 'copter returns to base.
News for those who are allowed to play with fonts and crayons but are yet to move beyond the picture book and animal sounds.
"They are out of reach and there's no extradition, so the best we can hope for is local prosecution,"
Well, unless the perps go to Ukraine for a Black Sea holiday where even the US will sweep them off the beach. Ah, yes that explains it now. Invasion funded by Interweb perps.
Re: Getting as bad as motorcycle and car shows
I always thought that first line was:
Get up in the morning bacon for breakfast......
Not sure how it fitted with the song title though.
"And bugger Cliff Richard........"
As well as a new keyboard it's half a cup of coffee too. Well played Sir.
Open bar you say?!
Somewhere to go after Infosec then.
Re: Can't wait
Nothing to sniff at?! ;)
Going against the trend
Being from the 'Boomer years' I don't have a telly, don't want one and can't really see the need for one. Laptop and 26" monitor with speakers is quite adequate for watching the rare programme from BBC on iPlayer (didn't get that one Apple! - sorry and the logging in aspect of the commercial channels is a pain) or for watching DVDs/Bluray.
And now Amazon/Lovefilm are introducing unlimited film streaming even less of a need for a telly and the £140+ licence to pay for the extortionate paypackets of lovvies and "DJs". Any sport can be watched in the company of others in the pub - supporting local business and enterprise - as many people who have a telly do as well.
Re: Three 0800 pricing
From the latest 3 Price Guide:
All 0800, 0808 and 0500 calls are free.
Your data allowance can be used as a personal hotspot (we used to call this tethering) – if you choose a plan with all- you-can-eat data, you can use up to 2GB of this allowance each month as
a personal hotspot.
So yes you can give up your current contract to get free 0800 calls and lose your unlimited tethering.....or keep the tethering and not call any 0800 etc numbers.
Need eyes testing
as I pretty sure that word was NOT beasts!
Critical Path Failure point
Is that why there is so much spam/malicious mail coming from IP 184.108.40.206 Hostname lb.lon5.cpcloud.co.uk? I've been wondering how. Thank you.
Trouble with cul-de-sacs
is once you're in them there is no-where else to go really.
You can't blame the bloke for milking it for all it's worth!
Next nasty re-direction
So how long will it be before we read about 'phishing' and other malicious emails circulating where the links start pointing to these 'hidden' caches of material and payload downloads to your machine. Followed by another to the hapless/hopeless victims asking for payment to remove.
Or worse, no warning. You just find out if you need to have your machine services for any reason.
Trying to convince police authorities that you were the victim of a scam could be a problem.
Re: Every household?
I haven't opted out of pizza leaflets etc as I use them as fuel on my log burner. But I haven't had this leaflet informing me about being able to opt out either.
Looks like someone's made an opt out decision for me.
GOV.UK are looking for Identity Assurance Providers for their new, exciting, great, whizzywig digital exemplars that we are going to love using. Perhaps they need look no further?
Trying to do this and .........account locked! Password reset sent to.....yup the account that's been locked not the 'other' account! And to get to the security questions to confirm who I am.....yup you need the new password!W!T!F!
7th May 2015
Please tell me what happens when I wake up on the 8th May
Slow News Day
Well, nothing in my life is that important that it can't wait a while...no life or death decisions nor contractual financial penalties. News, info....well there isn't much going on that effects folk is there that can't wait a bit.
Traffic jams happen, getting late in for work happens. Enjoy loking at the outside world. You never know, you may see something new.
Don't read anything work related when out of work - I'm not getting paid then!
Having a break from 'instant communication' can be a blessing.
Oh, and no impact here in the West Midlands
for a SH the red braces and the shirt should be a Ben Sherman checked short sleeved. And those trousers!!! Bring back the Levi jeans with turnup. And Monkey Boots.
More a Smoothie look, but he needs the porkpie hat and No6 'ticket'.
how I got my emailed statement ok earlier this month.
And if this was the rule then I'm sure there would have been an outcry from quite a number of customers in the same position as this guy. No?
Just how fast does a neutrino travel if expelled from an exploding star?
Assuming no Dark Lead is in it's path of travel
no mention of Android
if it fits.....wear it.
A bit odd to wear for a court apperance though.....or is that the de rigour for US courts?
Re: Why oh why oh why
Wake up at the back there! Where do you think all the GDS staff have come from who 'advise' Mr M of what he should say should be 'digitised' and are pushing/supporting this bizarre IDA idea. They are all from the 'great IT crowd'.
But as the report says, they are only now understanding the size of work involved and slippage of 6 -8 months on delivery is now common place - from the IT crowd, not the old fuddy duddy Civil Servants.
Publicly available PI
So if they don't want 'scapers' to access this *publicly available* data........just make it private.
It's a fact of life for any public website that contains *useful* information, robot scrapers will be used to harvest information. And as far as I know accessing *publiclicy available* data is not an offence if it does not damage the data or infrastructure it is held on or deny access to others.
BBC 30th Dec
reckons it's a European bank, with details of hack process
H2 vs HE
DMARC, SPF, DKIM
The sooner these are implemented by people as a standard the better the world would become.
Re: Flying Machines and Flying People
Well, if you were to install a video camera in the cockpit that fed to in-line video goggles you would get the same view. I know it's done over here in Blighty by R/C glider pilots, not sure about 160mph jet planes though! That would be quite a rush when flying low!
I don't think so
Will all this hoo-ha about RSA and the NSA result in Governments worldwide stop using RSA devices and put them under the same micrscope as those from Huawei?
HMRC vs Vodaphone
Looks like they could be the same entity. Where has their lawyers CIO just come from?
Whoa! Hold on there
If they are just going by the books then they are obviously ignoring the fact that many of the drinks would not have been finished. Quite a number were left on the bar/table/floor due to 'interruptions' of a physical nature!
Re: All I want for X-mas....
Or preferably a real hardon collider
Re: Go China!
China could find a ton of stuff left behind by the US and stuff sent there by USSR.
Or perhaps the odd golf ball or two.
Giving the mobile companies plenty of time to re-jig the wording in contracts and charging policies to ensure that they do not lose any income.
So much for protecting consumers.
Re: GDS (@Julian)
"They've come into a high-security public sector environment and shown the old crusties how it should be done. "
Ho hum.....says it all about GDS' approach really.
Not from my experience!
Re: Shiplee speaks sense
"Every department is being moved over to gov.uk eventually."
LOL. Depends when 'eventually' is. Looking at how progress in GDS is like watching someone swim through treacle I think that the transfers that should have been achieved this month will not be moved over until this time next year..if that.
Shiplee speaks sense
and hopefully someone in Gov will listen. Digital by default was the driver for this one. Just think how much else is being planned by other Gov Depts to meet this direction given by the Cabinet Office and how much else could be wasted.
When Reuters say "When recipients opened these documents, they loaded malicious code onto their personal computers. For about a week in late August, California-based FireEye said its researchers were able to monitor the "inner workings" of the main computer server used by the hackers to conduct their reconnaissance and move across compromised systems."
does this mean Fireeye were in the know about these breaches suggesting that they supply these five with a product ................that failed? Or were brought in after the breach (how likely?)
Or a supplier to these five disclosed information to Fireeye?
Or.....just journalist speak?
is not the Bath of the North. Have you been there? Were you drunk? ( a mandatory condition of living in the town along with a kebab with extra garlic)
St Pauls area of Bristol perhaps but Bath? Never.
So what would happen if the Court published the information, it was reposted by a foreign subscriber to Twitter, some one from the UK on hoiliday abroad saw it and re-tweeted it when outside the UK? The UK citizen was not in the UK when they did it so would they be subject to UK law stand a chance of being prosecuted or would it come under foreign law?
but wasn't there recently some police activity against people who were writing/venting not nice words against others on such, ahem, things like Twitter? So if the police could do that then why not again for these poor individuals who through no reason have been cstigated throughout cyberdom. Or perhaps would Twitter suspend/cancel the accounts of such idiots?
And when is it that pigs will fly.....
Damn and blast
Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer to be able to pick up a cheap second hand PS3!
