We have to work smarter, not harder
That was my cue to reach for the cattle prod.
Good to see Simon on form this week!

& Chrome. My laptop battery could expire before FF loads, and I'm running only uBlock Origin, NoScript, FlashBlock and Self-Destructing cookies. The Start page is all text links. Chrome is much faster loading and crashes less often.
Furthermore, now that I'm full of turkey.... why anyone would have anything to do with a company named Yahoo! has always mystified me.
A terrorist hangout has poor security? Good!
DHS was a bad idea from the start. 9/11 happened in large part because the CIA and FBI didn't talk to each other. Adding another layer of bureaucracy was stupid, but you'd expect no better from G.W. DHS folded in FEMA and the Coast Guard, but left CIA and FBI to carry on their pissing contest unaffected. The post-Katrina catastrophe in New Orleans was a direct outcome of demoting FEMA into subordinate status. Fear what may happen after a larger-scale disaster, which no government agency or official "could have seen coming," even though they will.
my colleague had been dead for three years.
Yet another new product experience from Yahoo!
Who writes stuff like that?
Thanks to a tip in a Reg forum I switched to uBlock Origin a few months ago. If Yahoo! hasn't blocked it, it would be my recommendation for Yahoo! Mail junkies to switch.
Fourteen US Postal Inspectors and Postal Police Officers have died in the line of duty.
Guy finds out Feds are investigating him so he starts hacking the Feds. Throw away the key, there's no intelligent life there.
In every major terrorist attack against the West that I can think of, we always learn that at least some of the perpetrators were "known" to some security agency. That tells me we are gathering enough data. What's needed, IMO, is action. That suggests more people in dark raincoats out watching the potential perps. Listening to phone calls and reading emails isn't enough. You want to nail them before they pick up their weapons and head out to wreak mayhem.
"You're a true SJW, aren't you?"
And just like that, I dismissed the rest of your comment...
I must have listened to too much Phil Collins back in the day. I had to DDG "SJW" first.
Run up the credit cards and go fishing. Fish won't much mind the CME.
The KKK historically isn't about free speech. Their legacy can't be escaped. It's one thing to disparage a racial group, but the KKK has in recent past gone well beyond speech. If they want to claim they're different now, they need to rebrand themselves with a new name. Good luck with that.
hit the big Japanese corporate websites as they are true masters of the government.
Hack Sony, maybe?
As mentioned in another thread, I started here: http://www.ghacks.net/2015/04/17/how-to-remove-windows-10-upgrade-updates-in-windows-7-and-8/
So far, so good, after a few reboots and a Windows Update check (it's set to notify me of new updates, but installation is done manually).
I haven't tried the Registry hacks mentioned above because so far, Windows Update is behaving as it should. Good luck!
I'm seriously beginning to HATE Microsoft. After inadvertently installing some "optional' updates to Win 7 recently, yesterday I couldn't install newer security updates without also installing Windows 10. No way. Performing all the necessary steps to avert that, in two stages, resulted in two, more than one-hour waits while Windows "configured" my system before it would finish rebooting. If you're running 7 or 8/8.1 be verrrrry careful which updates you allow.
Dear Microsoft: Windows 7 SP1 is working fine here. Thanks but no thanks for offering to give me Windows 10. With all the wasted hours people have spent trying to dodge installing it, I'm thinking it's probably worth less than you're charging.
According to the article, it was a teen busted. According to your link, he was born in 77. One of them is wrong.That could be his father. Good role model.
First, fix the blame. Then fix the problem.
That wildlife will re-enter an area abandoned by humans is a no-brainer. Anyone -- like me -- who has restored natural areas knows this. The life span of wolves and the short period of time (relative to the half lives of some of the material in the ground and water) since the explosion argue against assuming there will be no negative consequences for the wildlife in future. The fact of the explosion itself, especially as it was induced by a well-educated human, in no way justifies absolute faith in the nuclear-power industry as implied in this article. Lewis, you're better than this.
More than once I've read a comment about some app being "faster" but it's been impossible to discern. Not so with uBlock, which I just installed. Only took a minute to figure out how to block those annoying head photos on Reg articles. One place I definitely see a faster load is on Pandora, which I run in Chrome (uBlock Origin on Chrome). ABP reported blocking 28 objects and Pandora took several seconds to load. With uBlock it loads way faster, and uBlock is reporting 42 objects blocked. I use FF for everything but Netflix and Pandora so I don't inadvertently close a tab while multitasking. The FF implementation is also much faster on several ad-heavy news sites I frequent. Good luck to ABP et al; they have some catching up to do.
they didn't have a place to buy overpriced sugar-coated crap advertised as food. Sugar, the greatest discovery ever made by humans!
It's telling us to stay off its lawn. We have been warned.
By what thought process someone powerful enough to force the decapitation arrived at the conclusion that doing it was a good idea. Then again, I suppose one look no further than ISIS/ISIL and their ilk to see "modern" applications of the same thought (?) processes.
"your righteous omniscience"
Thanks, I'm going to add that to my CV!
you've spent a lot of money for an application that's no better than free alternatives. Thanks, sucker!
How the system detected the car was undergoing an emissions test? Back pressure from the sensor hose on the tailpipe?
If I don't glance at the ads in [enter names of magazines I read] I'm stealing? Or if I mute the sound or go do something else during TV ads. Someone needs a wakeup call.
So I read this article and posted a comment from my phone.
Then why are they rearranging the deck chairs?
Being "disciplined" is why they signed up for A.M. in the first place?
and thanks for all the great hardware.
we had no prior notice that the FCC considered the use of this standardized, 'available-out-of-the-box' technology to be a violation of its rules
What a dipstick.
don't type KILL THE HUMANS
That might explain why The Reg hasn't heard back from the company.
El Reg is one of the few sites I'd consider paying for. But no way am I turning off ABP etc.
an enjoyably obtuse perspective
Or just damned good satire.
since we were in the US, Fidel Castro...
Lame. You should have gone for Che Guevera. He tried to convince Fidel to nuke the U.S. There are so many non-PC choices today, but selecting most of them would get you picked up by Homeland Security.
À la Tony Stark, expect a division to make sophisticated and efficient weapons systems. They don't have to adhere to that suffocating "Don't be evil" mantra anymore. Nukes+ Inc., anyone? Finally, the promise of Google Earth will be realized!
Win 2000 pinball is not bad
Win 2000 pinball rocked, but even though I had an oversized heatsink on my CPU, it really got hot in a hurry. The sound fx were excellent. Nowadays, the most-challenging computer game is trying to outwit Microsoft's attempts to install Windows 10.
Has 100 per-cent market share at my house.
Did they go away? I hadn't noticed.
Friend of mine was hired to run a tech-writing dept at a well-known company, at a very high salary. First task they gave her was to get rid of a woman in the department they didn't like. Once that was done, my friend's position suddenly became obsolete and she was out the door. Worked out for me, as later on I was approached to run a department at another company, where my first task would be to get rid of an old guy past his expiration date. At least I got an up-front warning. I told them to grow a pair and walked out of the interview.
Here, would-be cons, let me set it up for you. Use two drones, or enable one to carry multiple packages. First, strew packages across one end of the yard, to get all the other cons chasing them and distract the screws (that's con talk for "guards"). Then, when everyone else is busy, move the drone across the yard and drop the intended package to the waiting, solo con. I'd also suggest hash brownies and nicotine lozenges instead of the smoke-able stuff. That way he has a chance to ingest some before the screws wise up and take him down. (You didn't seriously think you'd get the package into the building, did you? Sheesh, no wonder you got caught!)
Too many government employees, elected or not, in all countries, think they are the ruling class. And too many citizens, whether from apathy or fear, allow that delusion to persist. In fact, we citizens are the rulers and they're only the hired help. That includes all elected officials as well as the heads of so-called "security" agencies. Too bad if some of them have to be smacked upside the head once in a while to remind them of their place.
Duncan is. Thanks for a lifetime of heroic investigation and reporting.
The Republicans have a long and consistent history of ignoring human rights, at home and abroad. The voting history of the Republicans in national office today shows that history lives on. FFS, he at least could switch to Independent.
He may have said "Glock 40" and the reporter mistakenly filled in the blanks. I call my Glock a "45" (it's .45 ACP caliber) not a "21," which is its model number. It would make some bodacious (obligatory red-neck word) holes in a drone. Of course, that would be the result of 13 accidental discharges, not a deliberate attempt to protect my privacy.
I wonder that the drone operator didn't see the guy coming out with the shotgun and divert his toy elsewhere.
Why does Obama have a mission to get these people online?
Anti-government militias and similar groups thrive in the very demographics and geographical areas where the unconnected live. How is the government going to keep tabs on their email and social-networking activities if they don't have any?
