if there are "backdoors" to be discovered, I would expect to find them in the cryptographic code. since this has yet to be audited, it's too early to declare that truecrypt is kosher.
Re: @Tom 7
i sold 2000 or so bitcoins through gox between Feb and June 2012. the trading itself was kushti but there were some nerve-shredding delays when it came to wiring GBP back to the UK. it always turned up in the end but I remember on at least two occasions the delays and lack of explanation lead me to believe my money had gone missing.
Re: I've just...
some envelopes don't even need to be steamed. they used to slide a thin, split sliver of wood in through the top gap (where there's no adhesive), roll up the paper, extract. it can be put back into the envelope by reversing the process.
this is symptomatic...
global equity markets have entirely decoupled from underlying economic fundamentals. as the indices are pumped to new records by the magic of QE, it is hardly surprising to find vapour-punting IPOs taking advantage of the new environment. it will all end very, very badly.
it's many worlds, innit
the moment of entanglement is the branch point - one for each quantum outcome. the randomly selected experiment determines which branch is observed. the entangled entities don't need to communicate with each other.
get your facts right. silk road specifically prohibited the sale of services/items designed to harm other people.
only 15 tonnes of TNT? I find that hard to believe for 400kg @ 60,000 mph
is it going to refuse entry every 28 days?
Re: Italian and spacecraft don't play well
now that it's a heap of smouldering ash, maybe it should be referred to as a "Tesla among spacecraft"
Re: @ Roo. You mean Obama don't you.
you're really not getting it. let me break it down for you: THERE IS NO ANONYMOUS
Re: @ eSeM - Another bug fix ....
"You're kidding, right?
I'm, have it known, not an Apple fan. Not at all. But that doesn't stop me from applauding a company for listening to customer complaints and doing something about it.
How can that be wrong?
They were a lot faster than Microsoft, who took quite a while to give people their start button back when the complaints about Modern/ Metro/ THD* started rolling in.
And Canonical doesn't listen to their customers at all, as it seems. Lucky for me, as I happen to like Unity, but a bother to a lot of other users who left and got all Minty and such. But then, they don't ask for your money, so let's cut some slack there and just get something else if you don't like it.
So, dissing Apple for fixes and changes that users want? No, no and no. You should praise them for it!
And that's from an almost fanatic non-fanboi."
i think you should write a musical about it
Whither goest thou, Apple in thy shiny car in the night?
the Russian loony man has only 200 social media followers. this is how an advanced alien entity communicates to humanity?
Re: Powerful hallucinogen?
THC is a very potent molecule. I think that is what was meant. Have a few vaporizer hits of white rhino and you'll get the picture.
Re: Supermarkets? Seriously?
i generally take well under 30 minutes to knock mine out when I sit down in front of the computer.
Re: No one here remembers TEMPEST then?
"Or, alternatively, use valves (vacuum tubes) not semiconductors. Like everyone was astounded to find in that Russian fighter whose name I forget."
that reminded me of the astronaut showing his soviet counterpart one of the special ballpoint pens NASA developed, at huge expense, that worked in zero-g. when the cosmonaut looked unimpressed, the american asked how they had solved the problem. "we use a pencil".
Re: A few points
does anyone ever read below the faded out bit on these long posts?
no offence meant either, i'm just curious.
"WINSTON CHURCHILL'S PERSONAL PAPERS"
i immediately thought "rizla".
glad it's friday
In theory the Cu might be worth the same in the ground as a replacement. What about once you have paid someone to dig it up, make good, transport it, traded it to a metal dealer, etc. etc?
bossy surveillance. just what this world needs more of.
i think it's worth thinking about piracy more deeply. it is wrong to steal work, especially great (and expensive to produce) work like the two shows mentioned. but what if stealing content actually leads to, or encourages a deepening engagement with the media (tv, games etc). i've noticed amongst my friends, the ones who are the most active downloaders of illegal content are at the same time, by far the biggest buyers of legal content. after all, if the illegally downloaded movie or game was never going to be purchased in the first place, the downloader is not depriving the producer of anything, but may well spur them to go and buy something related.

That'll be "won't"
Quantum computer Boffin 'had to sit down"
Is that because his wave function collapsed?
Re: I gave up carrying my mobile last year and just leave it in the house
precisely because of this kind of bullshit snooping i gave up my mobile completely 3 months ago. it does take some heavy-duty adjusting to, but is very liberating.
fuck you, orange.
Re: "which is recognised legally as Ecuadorian territory"
@Shades: Upvoted you for upvoting the upvoter of the incomprehensibly downvoted post.
he did what he set out to do
The remains of Vietnam vet Terry Vance Garner were discovered at his farm outside Bandon "several hours after he went to feed his animals"
mission accomplished then, Terry.

Re: Picture 6, the man in the hole.
fuck "health and safety"
the "totally-static-in-the-view" telescopic rifle sight crosshairs. and they zoom too!
if the many worlds interpretation is valid and when particles are entangled, all possible pair state permutations will exist, but in separate universe branches. henceforth, when the state of one of the entangled pair is measured and the appropriate correlated value is found to exist in the other, the observer is in fact discovering which of these universes he/she is in. no faster than light propagating required.
what excites me most about LOHAN is the 3D printing. why not use this extremely cool tech to print the truss and other bits as a single object?
i know LOHAN has weight issues and you can't print carbon fibre, but it might allow a clever design that uses less material and could not be produced using conventional fabrication methods.
Got to be done...
LOHAN *must* feature a burst diaphragm, if only for comedic reasons.
remember Bonsai Kitten?
i think it is still mirrored at ding.net/bonsaikitten
most amusing, if you have a sense of humour.
kind of get where they are coming from
ubiquitous wireless internet is not far off.
won't be rushing to buy on the strength of the review, however. I don't understand why this thing exists.
Re: The employee was from Iran...
lol - you are quite right. nothing worse than a pedant who gets it wrong!
Re: The employee was from Iran...
they were speaking Farsi. pedantic, I know but it's a bit like saying someone conversing in Hebrew is speaking Jewish.
and I think his contribution to human culture will only be reappraised upwards with the passage of time.
Re: countries like Iran and Israel???
mate, I wouldn't even bother. he is just another ignorant troll.
aggreed. but I think we are talking about using tor to collect the torrent file from tpb website, not making the subsequent download via tor.
Re: Let me be the first to point out…
it does, in fact, blow.
seal the deal
i like your ingenious use of silicone (inspired by the real LOHAN?) but wonder if a simple latex ring seal (as in the original diagram) would not have worked. in my mind's eye the lid is pulled down sufficiently tightly to prevent slippage, especially if it is made out of non-slippery rubber/latex and was wide and flat.
right, i'm going to stop thinking about LOHAN's ring now and get back to work.
Please can we have more die shots in future on el reg
Re: The real fun comes...
luckily they have all those empty capacitors handy.
Re: That's a pricey box...
yes, a lot cooler than your new iPad
what a about a nine bob note?
tinsel tits / evan davies
shurely shome mishtake - it's *twinkle* tits. on account of the impressive piercings he sports in the old papilla mammaria, er, area.
stuxnet delayed iran's nuclear weapons program long enough for duqu to be deployed. stuxnet was the warm-up act. duqu will be the main show. duqu will fuck with their systems ONCE THEY HAVE A VIABLE NUCLEAR DEVICE. beautiful.
