The most tragic thing about the Ashley Madison hack? It was really 1% actual women

Potemkine
Joke

So male users were screwed... they should be happy, it was the reason they came here in the first place anyway.

Re: Why the percentage shock?

You can't get away from the biological facts that men are programmed to impregnate as many women as possible, while women are programmed to choose a dependable partner who sticks around.

So time travel does indeed exist! This post coming directly from the 19th century is the proof!

EU clears UK to give £50m to SABRE space launcher engine

Facepalm

No need to be angry just because the Eurofighter is just a big pile of dung, just able to fight the war that could have happened 30 years ago

You know, Dassault didn't need any external knowledge to build a delta fighter, even with canards surfaces like the company designed for the Mirage 4000...

Re: A brand new Euro space-plane - Yay!

No, it would be the same commission that says if public money given to a private company is a distortion of competition.

Without this rule, I bet some european states would be pleased to help financially their national industries to crush their EU competitors.... I doubt UK would win playing that game.

Verizon to world: STOP opening dodgy phishing emails, FOOLS

Potemkine

Corporate hackers often targeted lawyers, marketing staff and human resources within corporate environments in phishing runs because these departments regularly deal with a lot of email, according to Verizon.

I may have another explanation to explain why these departments are targeted, more related to their specific approach to IT in general and to IT security in particular...

Égalité, Fraternité - Oui, peut-etre. Liberté? NON, French speedcam Facebookers told

Potemkine

Freedom != Do whatever you want

"La liberté consiste à pouvoir faire tout ce qui ne nuit pas à autrui : ainsi, l'exercice des droits naturels de chaque homme n'a de bornes que celles qui assurent aux autres Membres de la Société la jouissance de ces mêmes droits. Ces bornes ne peuvent être déterminées que par la Loi."

" Liberty consists in the freedom to do everything which injures no one else; hence the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no limits except those which assure to the other members of the society the enjoyment of the same rights. These limits can only be determined by law."

Every billionaire needs a PANZER TANK, right? STOP THERE, Paul Allen

Potemkine

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.

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? ^^
