Re: No ACs Allowed

re Trevor Pott

many, many, MANY years ago I remember reading an article in Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact entitled "How to make an A-bomb and shake up your whole neighborhood". It was the 'science fact' article for that month. In it, they described exactly how to make the gun-type bomb and more generally how to make an implosion-type bomb. They then came to real problem: getting the materials to make the damn thing. As you point out, getting the materials required is very difficult. They spent most of the article showing just how difficult it is, unless the bombers are a government or a very large corporation and have a _lot_ of spare cash. And how people would, like, you know, tend to notice what was going on unless they went to a _lot_ of trouble (translation: spent a lot more cash) and had a _lot_ of space to hide things in. And gun-type bombs would, unless our boys are complete idiots, work correctly the first time, but implosion-type bombs really should be tested. At which point _lots_ of people will find out about their little hobby. Of course, our would-be bombers could just fire one off without testing it, but it'd be a tad embarrassing if the thing didn't work... the problem with gun-type bombs is that they're big, and unwieldy, and have relatively low yields. Should someone want big boom, they go with implosion-type bombs. Preferably multi-stage implosion-type bombs, they could get all the boom they might want. As you also point out, delivering the bomb is also a problem, though a solvable one; Ryder Trucks are, after all, the Terrorist's Choice of bomb-delivery platforms in the US. (See further Federal Building, Oklahoma City, and first attack, World Trade Center, New York City...) yeah, it's a ground-burst, and so reduces the effect, which merely means that the bombers get to build a bigger bomb. Assuming they live that long, which is unlikely. Uranium and plutonium are hard, dense, toxic, heavy metals which burn real nice; that they're radioactive is just icing on the 'hard to handle' cake. Just grinding and polishing the various pieces into the correct shapes is incredibly difficult (translation: expensive) unless you have workers who are expendable. Lots of workers who are expendable.

"And Apple with their Itunes and Ipod with integral hard drive that has a facility to store a complete CD in a lossless format from my home collections of CD's are not included in the law suit because?"

because when last I looked (which was, admittedly, some time ago) Apple accounted for 40% of the music industry's profits and it would be very, very, VERY simple for Timmy-boy to turn the money spigot off.

And the fact that Apple has mad-dog killer lawyers doesn't hurt.

Re: 150 IBM applications?

Let's see... a quick look at the app store reveals:

lots of collaboration software (five different apps on the first page...) plus engineering stuff, business analytics, You know, boring enterprise stuff. And, yes, I'm just counting the stuff which actually has 'IBM' listed as the vendor. There's lots more that is clearly targeted IBM stuff, including a terminal emulator which does an excellent job of imitating an IBM green-screen. And then there's the fluff, such as the ability to get hold of (shudder) IBM Systems Magazine (Mainframe Edition). The horror. The horror.

Re: and the little one said "roll over"

"Even in those faraway days when Apple computers were "cool", they still depended totally on IBM for their PowerPC processors."

Err... the early Macs were powered by Motorola processors. 68000. 68020. 68030. 68040. I remember the screaming and shouting among the more rabid twits when the first PowerMacs came out, with PowerPC CPUs... and how the nutcases were placated by a deal Apple made with IBM whereby Motorola actually produced many/most/all of the processors used in Macs. See, we're using a chip from the Evil Empire, but it's actually made by our fuzzy friends at Moto, so everything's fine. Fast forwards a few years and Apple goes with Intel and the same rabid twits explode. This time Apple tells 'em where to get off.

Even back then (assuming that Apple computers have ceased being cool, something which is open to debate) Apple did _not_ 'depend totally' on IBM. Moto, now, that was a whole other story.

Microsoft: You NEED bad passwords and should re-use them a lot

Re: Even a "harmless" site is still a potential attack vector

"Forget the k1dd13 p0rn. It can be used to spearfish you back or spearfish one of your contacts. Go and explain that it is not you to the hapless victim after that."

Err... no. Let's take the example of what I do on el Reg. I use a certain throwaway email account (from gmail) and a nice simple password. i use the same throwaway account and password on other sites. Exactly the same. Should someone get into el Reg's (or one of the other sites') logon database, they will find... an account which is useless for them, as everyone I know _knows_ that I use that account as a throwaway (I used it on USENET, for God's sake) and will ignore anything sent using it. If I see anything heading my way which uses that account I would be very, very, VERY suspicious of it unless I _KNEW_ that it's legit. And even then I'd check it out.

And, oh, should there be a site which requires me to 'register' using identifiable data, such as address, and I don't think that they need that data, they get fake data. Spearphishing doesn't work very well when they have the wrong info.

Now, if the contact is linked to a credit card, or is otherwise of value, I use a real password. If the contact is of no value, I use a simple, easy to remember password. The worst that can happen with my setup on el Reg is that someone can post stuff in my name.

Re: Microsoft FAIL

"The problem with abandoning Windows Server 2003 is that it won't be long before they also abandon support for Windows Server 2008 ... leaving Windows Phone Server 2012 as the only option."

Errm... I set up a machine with WinServer2012R2 yesterday. It was a quick, easy, set up, and I have yet to see even one tile.

I have a pile of WinServer2012R2 books and that server to serve (see what I did there?) as a testbed for the future. I expect that all of our WS2003 and 2008 units will either be scrapped or will be WS2012R2 by the end of the year. The 2008R2 units will probably still be in service for a while yet.

Lot's of luck with that. I _know_ that the NSA doesn't care what _American_ politicians, you know, the ones who write the checks to run the thing, think. I suspect that the yapping of furriners simply will not register... except to tell them who to have a close look at next.

they're a spy agency

It may well be that the NSA are paying close attention to (some/most/all) Germans in Germany, but isn't that kind of thing, well, their _job_? Expecting them to _not_ be paying attention is, well, reminiscent of a certain Australian prime minister telling parliament that the Soviets weren't running a spy ring in Australia because he had been assured by the Soviet foreign minister that they'd never do that.

I _expect_ them to be:

1 keeping an eye on _all_ communications going into and out of the United States

2 _all_ communications anywhere outside of the United States

3 _all_ communications anywhere inside of the United States which they can get away with monitoring

That boils down to, well, all communications, period, except where they physically can't do it or where it might be politically inexpedient to get caught trying... and I suspect that they'll damn well try everything they can and see what they can get away with.

They're a spy agency. Spying is what they do. They seem to be quite good at it, and they certainly have had plenty of practice. If the German courts start yapping about it, the NSA will ignore them. Hell, if _American_ courts start yapping at them, the NSA will, at most, throw some scapegoat off the sled and carry on as before.

Tell us about your first time ... on the internet

First Class

Time: 1993/4

Hardware: Mac IIsi, at home, Mac IIci at work, 9600 modem, later a 14400, then a 28800

Method: dial-up

The company (a newspaper) paid for dial-up access... but not, at first, to the Internet. Nope, we went (long distance...) to various bulletin boards, mostly running First Class, a very Canadian server/client software team. We ran up truly magnificent long-distance bills. (Every week someone, that, is, me, had to contact a site in New York to download that week's TV guide. 6 MB. Do any of the other dinosaurs out there remember how long it took to download 6 MB even using a 28800?) Management took a look at the long distance bills and nearly fainted. Around that time First Class started flogging a version of their server which could access something called 'the Internet' and the site we had to get the 6 MB file from had 'Internet access'... and I pointed out to management that this 'Internet' thing could be accessed for the cost of a _local_ call. (Plus other fees, of course. Still cheaper than long distance...) Management got several accounts at a local ISP for the company. I got one for myself, same ISP. The ISP gave us Mosaic, and later Netscape 0.9 and Netscape 1, plus email clients and ftp clients and usenet clients and, well, a lot of stuff, all on floppy of course. For a long time I kept on using First Class, only over the Internet, as it had a much better interface. (Still does...)

By 1995 the IIcis were replaced by first generation Power PC systems (Carl Sagan 7100s and Cold Fusion 8100s at the office, a Piltdown 6100 at home...) and the 28800 modems by first 33600s and then (oh, the sheer incredible speed!) 56k units. I still recall the rejoicing when we got two dual 56k network modems on the office network; now four people at a time could go on the Internet! More important, now I could delegate downloading that damn 6MB file to the people who actually needed it: the Sunday magazine crew. They got a block of time on one of the dual 56ks just to get that file... Much grousing, as with regular dial-up the download could be interrupted and renewed, but with the ftp site if the signal was lost they had to start again from the beginning. As this was no longer my problem...

I left that job just after we first got 'broadband'. Sigh. 500 kb down, 128 kb up... Truly magnificent speed. Who could ever need any more than that?

(Good luck specifying _that_ one without large numbers of someones getting angry with you no matter what you pick...)

As for pro sports... baseball is dominated by Latins. Cubans. Dominicans. Venezuelans. Colombians. And the number of Japanese and other east Asians are growing. Blacks are losing ground in baseball.

In Yanqui Feetball, QBs and offensive line are mostly white boys, with some Latins and a few blacks. Defensive line is mostly black. DBs, blacks and Latins. Receivers... it used to be mostly black, but the white boys who show up are very very good indeed and get paid accordingly, so that affects the average beyond the mere numbers. RBs, mostly black.

In Real Feetball, there isn't enough of a sample group to draw conclusions. (See further taking three tries to being able to beat _Ghana_ in the World Cup...)

Basketball is nearly completely black; the prominent white boys tend to be furriners. (Canadian. Argentinian...)

Hockey... nearly 100% white (and mostly furriners, Rooskies and Canadian and similar lesser breeds, mostly)

Lacrosse... nearly 100% white. (Yes, Lacrosse. The Florida Launch play just down the road from where I live...)

Wembley seats about 15-20 thousand less than some of the bigger _university_ feetball stadia. The Big House, at the University of Michigan, has held well in excess of 116,000.

Re: never mind the enterprise

"No-one walks into a computer store and asks for a 4tb drive, that's why we don't stock them. Simple as that, they are dead stock that won't rotate."

err... <looks at two 4TB USB3 externals, one plugged into Mac mini, one plugged into hand-built Win7 box, both purchased from local computer stores> Y'all _sure_ about that? As my old 750GB/1TB/1.5TB externals (mostly USB2, some FireWire 800) fill up I'm replacing them with 4TB drives. (They're usually close to EoL by the time I replace them, anyway.) The unit on the Mac replaced a 1.5TB drive serving as a Time Machine backup drive which had filled up and TM was killing older backups to generate space. It'll take a while to fill 4TB. The unit on the Win7 replaced a 1TB drive which had, among other things, an ISO for every major piece of software I have (Mac, Windows...) including OS installs and patches. Given the size of recent Mac and Windows OS installs, it was filling up alarmingly quickly. Again, 4TB should be sufficient for some time to come.

I picked both drives up off the shelf at <name of store redacted>; they had a bunch of 1, 1.5, 2, 3, and 4 TB external USB 2 and 3, and internal SATA 2 and 3, mostly 3, drives along the rear wall and seem to be moving 'em fairly briskly. They had two cashiers in the front with a total of five customers, including me, and two customers with 4TB drives, including me. (The other guy bought an internal.) Given the pricing, the ones which aren't moving anymore are the smaller drives.

Re: I disagree in part

For a considerable number of us it's a whole lot more than 'a few quid' and it ain't on games. I have an iPhone and an iPad... and an Android phone. The Android phone gets used as... a phone, 'cause I don't download a damn thing on it. The iPhone and the iPad have music, and movies, and, most especially, _books_. Books from Apple. Books from Nook. Books from Kindle. Books from other sources imported via calibre (converting them to epub format) and then by iBooks (the only reason to use iBooks on a Mac is to import epub files so that they can be synced with the iPad/iPhone...). I have several _thousands_ of pounds worth of books on my systems. Text books. Reference books. Stuff to use at work. Lots and lots of them. (And, of course, lots and lots of books for fun...) The vast majority of them don't have DRM, either because I used calibre to import them or because they didn't have DRM in the first place, some book vendors have Seen The Light and for the others there's USENET. Or my own scanner and OCR. They're _mine_, and cannot be evaporated due to the fiat of Apple, or Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. (That last one looks to be going bust Real Soon Now...) I didn't used to have so many books outside of calibre, until I got an iPad... and I got the iPad instead of an Android tablet due to price and saw how useful it was for reading books. Yes, the iPad was cheaper than an Android tab which could do what I wanted; there are far cheaper Android tablets, but the cheap ones simply couldn't do what I wanted them to do. Sorry, but there it is. And then there's the fact that the Android phone has been misbehaving, so much so that I'll probably dump it for something else. Right now the iPhone 4S looks like the frontrunner. Yes, there are better e-book readers... but they're tied directly to Amazon and Barnes & Noble and can't do anything _except_ read e-books. And as the books are on _both_ the iPad and the iPhone, I _know_ that I can get hold of the required text at any time. Including when I'm not carrying a tablet, much less my laptop with calibre installed, which was how I used to read e-books.
