then all we do is use a different encryption wrapper so that the plain text part of the handshake looks different.
if the government think and try to block unauthorised types of encryption, then the only people who will be affected will be the dumb and lazy and technically ignorant people, who are likely to be the least interesting.
if £60 is a lot, then they're probably not running a business, but a hobby that pays for itself.
their spokes-person wrote:

chances are they have no way of knowing whether their systems have been compromised and root-kitted to hell and back.
But a judge in Virginia said that if you connect a computer to the internet, you have no expectation of privacy,
so Lauri L can't have done anything wrong!
Should I feel sad for Oracle?
Does Oracle have any friends?
Just pay up!
Thales e-Security are pretty big, part of the huge Thales organisation, and sell hardware security devices, trusted by many household names.
Based in Cambridge (England).
I'm sure they'll be happy to pick up lots of customers fleeing from the US mandated backdoors.

I'm very sad we've him to the great /dev/null in the sky
or he has a social media personal assistant who is charged with setting up accounts for him on any new services that get created, and that PA creates accounts with easy to use passwords and Zuck is meant to login and set them to something strong.
Since my phone is rooted, I was able to delete Facebook app entirely off my phone.
If I partly go through installing the app off Google Play Store, the privileges it wants are vast, it might as well want root!
So there's no way I'm going to install their messenger app or their main app.
two companies claiming trademark over a commonly used word in the dictionary.

I've seen that. Such bash horrors are written by people who don't understand how to use single and double quotes properly.
How many different prime ministers have they had in the last six years?
This is the Australia which tries to censor the internet as if it's a TV channel?
The same Australia which has a monopolistic national telco?
It'd take ten years, massive investment in new fibre links to the rest if the world, and a total reeducation of their government before companies would host there.
Now most Apple kit is sealed, anything with a battery will only be useful whilst the battery has capacity or Apple are willing to service it.

Kate Moss had been the stone's previous fiancee, but he still wanted to roll, and the relationship didn't survive.
my car radio is pretty good, but doesn't have DAB.
still, it's only purpose is to be a bluetooth receiver so I can play podcasts from my phone. I listen to quite a lot of BBC R4, but as podcasts. I play them at 1.1x normal speed. I can rewind too and pause. far more convenient than radio.
there's an interesting related project:
grab and time slice the audio stream from the radio for time shifted playback
And in other news, GCHQ has found a way to make horses run backwards into the stables they bolted from, so that they can retrospectively lock the stable door.
I note that the contact page on the portoftyne website is fscked, insists that the message field shouldn't be blank.

"The Port sits at the heart of the South Tyneside community and we hope people will pick up a camera or smartphone and start taking pictures of what life means to them."
Why am I reminded of "things I won't work with"?
it's worth checking you've turned on the a bunch of headers that make the site less prone to these problems
on your site and fix it. I've been doing that.
You'd have thought they'd know about the Streisand Effect by new
I remember streetmap being pretty crappy, and even the first version of Google maps being so much better that I stopped using streetmap straight away. Frankly, had streetmap been any good they would have been able to hold on to their user base.
Lazytown computers run Debian
At previous job I had a T540p. Same problems: no indicator lights for caps lock, wifi, hard drive, battery charging. Also there were no mouse buttons at all, just a horrible track pad. I was glad to surrender it when I left.
It seems that in the T550 that Lenovo went back to a previous design and brought back mouse buttons etc.
Since BT Openreach and BT Retail are the same company, it means Openreach can set their prices really high and then let Retail sell on the services almost at a loss, and thus Oreach make all the profits.
That then makes it almost impossible for third parties to compete as they have to make a reasonable margin on the prices set by Oreach.
This then allows BT to sign lucrative deals with sports entertainment industry and have it subsidised by their competitors.
I guess he's being paid in iWatches, he gets a couple of the most expensive ones every day.
If found this article to be confusing, like it was written by someone who was very tired, by them dictating it to someone who simply spell-checked it and didn't bother to restructure it into simple clear english with good punctuation.
I find this painfully ironic. I recently bought and signed up to their mobile broadband service special deal.
Immediately my Osprey Mini started receiving premium text messages from T-Zones, run by IMI Mobile, with chart updates regularly, at 17p per message!
I called up EE and they failed to stop them. Eventually I tracked down the 3030 number to IMI Mobile and demanded they stop - they ignored the "STOP ALL" message I sent.
I then called EE again and they said they would block the messages, but I would have to wait a while before they could refund the charges.
So on this basis I would say EE are in cahoots with the text spammers.
you do know, don't you, that even if you're a Virgin Media customer then part of your connection may go over BT infrastructure.
BT essentially have a monopoly in all but very specific parts of the country it's nearly impossible to not use at least some part of their infrastructure.
Those football deals need to be paid by someone, and if the costs can be pushed into OpenReach, then all ISPs using Openreach's infrastructure can be made to subsidise BT's Retail operations.
If you use XMarks (once foxmarks) for bookmark sychronisation then maybe you need to be reminded that lastpass bought xmarks.
so you may need to find a new bookmark sync service too.

IPv6 adoption is doing fairly well
PSINet was one of the first dotcom collapses. I lost a fair few $$ in the value of my options :-(
I think 38/8 is now controlled by Cogent. Buying the remnants of PSINet for their IP addresses might have been the best part!
Quite a few domestic routers use VxWorks, the venerable WRT-54G for example was one where the switch from linux to VxWorks garned a fair bit of publicity, and the 54GL was created to keep hackers happy.
I now wonder how many consumer devices there are on the internet potentially at risk to these vulnerabilities
nowadays people would simply photograph the page on their smart phone whilst pretending to text a friend.
anyone remember webvan?
My Toshiba Click Mini is a pretty nice device.
If I was picky I'd say it needs an extra gig of RAM and a bit faster CPU
For sustained performance you need to see the Anandtech reviews where their testing runs for sufficiently long that it properly exercises the controller and its ability to recycle (erase and add to free pool) disused blocks
many SSDs improve their sustained performance if you don't use their full capacity.
Dear Simon Crisp,
please can you add a table to the results showing GB/£ so we can see which is the cheapest drive for the storage offered?
You spend a lot of time fixing up the s**t left behind by other people, dealing with people who feel they're more important than anyone else, dealing with feelings of entitlement, dealing with people who are willfully ignorant and unable to learn.
It's like being a carer in a teenager's foster home sometimes.
A woman who's already a mother might not want a job that's like being at home.
