Re: One World Government Agency, Yah Right.
It's so true that local governments are not corrupted either...
Re: Last of the titans
Most companies are now leaded by managers, not entrepreneurs.
Slander boldly, something always sticks
Many hear the lie, few hear the rebutal.
Re: Picking the nit...
T34 was way superior to PzKpfw IV (better armament, larger tracks), the standard workhorse of Panzerdivisionen in 1943. I'm not even sure that Panther was better than T34/85, mostly because of its poor reliability and the risk to be immobilized by mud when weather was getting cold because of its "crossing wheels" design. And at the time Panters become more common, USSR had IS2. At the end of the war, USSR had the more efficient tanks.

I knew for pigs, I didn't know that PzKpfw IV fly too
Re: BBC Worldwide
You're a journalist? That's more than enough to be considered a suspect!
Am I the only one to think...
...that storing passwords in a browser is a very bad idea?
Re: Morals, ethics, principles...
Please remind me what where the countries annexed by a EU or NATO member during the last 30 years?
Not mixing business and politics is the usual motto of companies not afraid to make business with the worst b'stards on this planet (1 Godwin point for me)
Re: Security questions?
Feck! How did you guess my answers? :doh:
Re: Ah but they didn't used Password
Did they even know their data on their iPhone was synchronized with iCloud and what it meant ? Was that a deliberate action, or a side-effect of a default choice imposed by Apple?
Deleted data stolen?
Ok for once with Apple, users should be more responsible when choosing passwords and secret questions, but data deleted by users being stolen.... WTF!?
Anyway, Apple's spin doctors are really efficient, because when the story was related in most mainstream media in France, journalists mentioned data stolen 'from the Cloud', not from iCloud.... and I'm not sure it's only because they know zeronada on IT.
Paranoid? Yes, and? ^^
But WTF is...
.. Facebook? Feckbook?
You are all terrorists! That's why we are all watching you.
To avoid this...
... we found a parade: no vnc nor teamviewer allowed, or the user would have to endure kneecapping.
For the moment, a very effective strategy ^^
or MSBS... but it may not be specific enough.
Sympathy for the Record Industry
It's good to see that so many people and so much money are mobilized to prevent such dangerous crimes, which can destroy our societies and our way of living. We have to thank all these governments to protect us from that terrible danger which is copyright infringement, one of the most vicious attack against the western world. That guy should considered himself as lucky, jet fighters should have destroy his home, which would have been an appropriate and proportionate response to his monstrous actions.
Adding insult to injury

Bring the rope, kid, we've got a salesman to deal with.
You did expect an apology?
Re: The tank used for the illustration ...
I was thinking at first it was an ISU-152, but you're right, the cannon doesn't seem to be that big, must be an ISU-122
There's something similar in France, through the website "Mémoires des Hommes". Notably, there's an online database listing the 1.3 millions who died during WW1 with a scan of the official document giving the name, the unit, the moment and the cause of the death.
It made a long time I hadn't that song stuck into my head.... thanks guys :nuke:
In MS universe, is 'Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit' codename for Firefox or Chrome?
Did Mr. Lewis see that?
Discussions must be interesting among El Reg's editors :^^
Re: It's sweet
" it's 60 minutes of call and 60 text messages" - Are you sure? I think it's 2 hours and unlimited SMS and MMS for 2 € / month, and for free if you have already a DSL subscription.
Also, with the regular package, I believe the degradation comes after 3 GB, not 2.
So a news headline takes 7 days to cross the channel... the channel must implement RFC 2549 I presume
Isn't it a little big for a suppository?

I'm watching it with Erik Satie in musical background... hypnotic Indeed.
Did any feminist threaten to kill you or rape you? If so you should refer to the police.
If you just don't like their arguments, then you just have to don't listen to them.
Twitter is full of hate speech
For fascists, racists, homophobes, sexists, twitter is a haven.
That's the main reason why I closed my account.
"Well, isn't that special?”
It's weird how sex would be a societal problem, when violence is not.
Boobs = evil, but murders and bloodbaths displayed in TV shows or news everyday are OK... talk about nonsense!
IE development team renamed as the "Woops! department"
Very interesting indeed
- Porn industry is very reactive and is able to adapt its business model much faster than the other media industries
- It's better not to do this business in the US.
Re: And remember...a GOO-GIRL isn't just for Christmas...
Oh... buggar. I can resist everything except temptation.
Wi-fi users could watch porn? So shocking!
Why couldn't they surf on news websites instead, where they could see people killed, children dying of hunger or dismembered women in some war...
It's weird how some societies are intolerant for everything related to sex, a natural activity required to perpetuate the species, and very tolerant for everything related to violence. Seeing boobies would be more disturbing that watching a body eviscerated by shrapnels...
Well done guys. I hope the developers will get a bonus for Christmas.
"research over the last decade has identified nicotine's carcinogenic potential in animal models and cell culture. Nicotine has been noted to directly cause cancer through a number of different mechanisms such as the activation of MAP Kinases. Indirectly, nicotine increases cholinergic signalling (and adrenergic signalling in the case of colon cancer), thereby impeding apoptosis (programmed cell death), promoting tumor growth, and activating growth factors and cellular mitogenic factors such as 5-LOX, and EGF. Nicotine also promotes cancer growth by stimulating angiogenesis and neovascularization.In one study, nicotine administered to mice with tumors caused increases in tumor size (twofold increase), metastasis (nine-fold increase), and tumor recurrence (threefold increase).N-Nitrosonornicotine (NNN), classified by the IARC as a Group 1 carcinogen, is produced endogenously from nitrite in saliva and nicotine."
