At last a use for the Raspberry Pi
As a guidance computer heat/image seeking on the mini-RPG
I was quietly and happily planting escallonias in my garden, when one of your drones came overhead. It was making a sort of spluttering sound, then it simply fell from the sky. Unfortunately it landed right on my head, causing actual injury. After leaving hospital today, I have instructed my lawyers to pursue Amazon for compensation in the sum of $10,000,000 since I am now heavily traumatised by the incident, and I dare not even venture outside. Thankyou.
When we had a shoe bomber we all had to take our shoes off.
Then we had the underpants bomber and .... nothing
Re: Coming up next on Mythbusters....
actually mentos and coke would make quite a "splash"
Re: "unwittingly accepted some T&Cs"
Unwittingly "accepted" T&Cs are not actually _accepted_
Reminds me of Win 98 (or was it 95) anyway it scoured your comp and sent the details back to Microsoft. When they got found out, MS put in a patch where you could tick a box to say you didn't want your details sent back to them. Guess what, it still sent your details.
what's "nickle" ?
Surely it is the responsibility of Apple to prevent scraping of their own website if they don't want it.
Preventing a third party from doing it does not make their problem go away.
In fact it highlights it.
Re: Further confirmation that things are progressing nicely....
this is sarcasm, yes ?
Zuck's not so clever. For a start he doesn't employ me.
what is a "cyber weapon" ?
Well, I fin’ly started thinkin’ straight
When I run outa things to investigate
Couldn’t imagine doin’ anything else
So now I’m sittin’ home investigatin’ myself!
Hope I don’t find out anything . . .

I always have my phone switched off while driving, that avoids any temptation to answer it if it rings. I know that I am not so important that I have to be reachable at all times, unlike 99% of everybody under my age.
Re: No wonder
"tough (as staff)"
as "stuff" surely?
not if you're from Surrey
Re: Storage Desnity...
NAND flash is initialised to all FF's so the more data you put into it the lighter it gets (electrons here)
So you can take screenshots off passers-by, does GCHQ know about this.
Why not use your actual smartphone to steal screenshots from passers-by.
I suppose there's already an "app" for that.
They don't need to smuggle chargers only charged-up batteries.
My phone lasts 3 weeks on one charge (not all phones are iPhones/clones)
What has it got to do with
SOCA ? Since when was selling/buying a small mobile phone a serious organised crime.
SMMT ? They only resemble key fobs, auto makers don't make them. Doh, doh and thrice doh.
Unpowered RAM data
How do you get it out without, umm, applying power
What kind of idiot stores 'that' kind of data on something you take through an airport ?
It's what the Cloud was invented for, oh and don't have live links to it on your laptop etc.
Google search test
Try a google search on something a bit 'iffy' (with safe search off).
Now do the same in Bing.
Notice any difference ?
Why is this ?
Re: One up the spout!
INDEFINITE ARTICLE not PARTICLE
this gets better
Do they still have McD walk thru's in London, they certainly did in the 90's
So let me get this straight, MC and Visa ban payments for some VPN services, but their own transactions/data/comms/etc needs security so goes via VPN's ...
Re: Cash is king
ever heard of a top-up visa ?
A whole new meaning to ... giving head
Who are / what were these "officials" ?
Don't get excited
It's an Apple product
Equals tomorrows fish'n'chip paper
Nothing to fear

So, I have connection problems for a few days, or, I go on holiday for 2 weeks.
When I get back to my Xbox One what will work ?
We need to know
Re: Beats vs. BeyerDynamic
When mastering I do one master for the CD and a different master for the MP3 version.
That way both can be optimised for their target market. I thought everybody did this.
What could possibly go wrong
Burglar 1: I'm monitoring the whole street, number 11 power just went right down.
Burglar 2: Ok I'll pop round the back ........
Sticking some wire mesh around the place is not eonough.
Look up "Tempest"
the exams were done in a long room with rows of rectangular tables parallel to the walls
oh, wait .......
Welcome to South Lincolnshire, where we are lucky to get the dizzy heights of 1 Mbps
While you're banning words in adverts ....
So if I download a Cliff Richard track, strip out the metadata with mp3tag, then upload it, the govt can grab it as an orphan work and all copyright is lost.
Why in fucks name should I want to email Mark Zuckerberg ?
I already know more than he'll ever learn, IT-wise, life-wise, management-wise, etc etc etc.
I'm over 60 so I'm not kidding, he should learn from me.
Downvoters: think first for once eh chaps
"Hang on, I thought we were first?"
I think that's what basically happened in '69 but we haven't been told yet
Too complicated - go back to Imperial
Ah, I see
Instead of the drum revolving, the drum stays still and the whole machine revolves. You can only do this in space. Safely. The "payload" is 5 kgs of Kim Jong-Un's dirty socks, which should be fairly clean by now. If somebody remembered to put the powder in. It must be up to the spin cycle by now, so expect to see it increase the speed of the revolutions. This is what they meant by "People's Glorious Revolution". In Space no-one can hear you clean. Thanks God it's friday. It's only tuesday, Crap.
Plan to fail
Of course it will be a failure - then Microsoft can (a) slash the price of these and "legitimately" gain market share because they are so cheap and (b) introduce the Surface 2 in about, oh, February, back at the original price so that (c) consumers will then buy the new one.
Any fule kno this
downvoters please look it up first
TM is meaningless even in the USA you need R in a circle for Registered Trade mark.
TM means "we can't be arsed to register it properly or can't afford to either, but we're trying to scare you into thinking we have some control here"
