Re: How the hell does a star change its rotation?
I'm imagining it literally rolled over, it'd then appear to be rotating the other way from afar?

Bitcoin is auditable - it's shown in the blockchain if anyone has paid (or in this case that no one has).
Trust, but verify. Applies to programs and users.
I'm laughing hard, because basically we've gone from blaming the 'kids' to blaming the adults who teach them, who are mainly... us.
That's because, despite how much the energy companies would like you to believe otherwise, they don't actually 'handle' the energy.
They simple broker how much usage they think they'll require, and make sure they put the numbers in, in good time for the production to be done.
Not quite the same with ISP's, where they are actually handling the data from point to point (and so when it falls over, it isn't actually 'still there').
Where there's no money, there's no refunds.
Also, unless you've got SLA's with contracts to match, you'll have fun getting refunds anyway.
It's not, it's just costly to do so.
Obviously weighing up security vs ease is a hard one that we'll be battling with for a long time to come.
While not as abusive, my own thought was 'can't you script this?'
Obviously if said educational institute doesn't want to fund the educating of an employee to be able to do such things then, they can enjoy [wasting|spending] said time doing it instead.
That can make things get really confused also, so it's a tricky one to be sure.
If you for some reason have something running at 23:59:59; and you check if it's running still 1 second later (expecting the time to be 00:00:00) - what do you expect will happen?
Anyone doing remote/unattended upgrades should be capable of reading the articles on how to do this manually, create a clear key and save it to the drive - along with the appropriate warnings about doing so (I'd be worried if anyone has un-monitored access to their physical servers anyway).
Doing it by default is just plain ignorant, stupid and possibliy malicious.
It's not impossible for me to have dns claim my server is updates.microsoft.com (or whatever the address is now) and tell windows I have a 'new upgrade' package for it to install. Suddenly this looks very dodgy indeed.
No you don't.
You need to remotely have the system request the password of a user who has the ability to create the clear text key, you then save that key, get to the system whenever you want (and however you want); put the key back; reboot it.
It reboots back up, and unencrypts the drive for you while it does it.
Actually... they did make them do that...
Erm no it isn't.
The idea is the traffic cannot be viewed in transit, and not MitM'd unless they are placing the Man after your vpn exit point (i.e. another country.).
Of course to get around this will mean most companies will soon be hosted out of places where they can't be reached, along with moving their tax paying dollars there too.... oh, wait.
No, That's the return key, or 'Page return key' if we're being pedantic.
The enter key is 'normally' found on a numpad. My Dell provided input device clearly has this.
I have nothing useful to add :(
Working for a hell-desk for a medium sized pharmacy firm (street facing shops) and I have a call from a concerned pharmacist. Their store had flooded overnight and was still about 6 inches deep in water but they were some how operating by hand anyway.
So they asked if they could turn on the pharmacy computer, as some of the electrics had survived. I pondered this for a moment, then asked 'well is the computer wet?'. The answer, from someone who had done a number of years at university and was qualified to give me enough drugs to kill answered honestly 'well, it's on the floor so it's in the 6 inches of water, but I thought it might just work anyway?'
Needless to say I told them not ot turn it on under any circumstances, and let us know once all the pluming was sorted so we could look at getting a tech out for the computers...
I was SO expecting a 'Close Safari.... Use a real browser' type response.
I find it amusing that something like this doesn't have 24/7 on site support.
I'm wondering if we ignore the moon bceause the dust is so dangerous? You'd basically never be able to take anything from outside inside, due to all the cancer causing stuff.
I'm presuming Mars' dust is actually safer.
Because the two largest ever seen DDoS's were windows boxes right.
Yeah, exactly. I'm a linux user, but stupid comments like this help no one.
Does it matter if it's obvious?
These guys were making money from doing the DDoS's, from a business pretending to be a testing service.
I'd find it hard to believe anyone thought these guys were legit.
I'm thinking about a car analogy for this.
The Tesla ships with autodrive, it's great, it generally works, but it might kill you (or someone else).
Your responsibility as a driver, is to remain in control of the device you are using. Tesla's is to try and make sure you do.
Obviously, with IoT devices that you can't configure then ISP's need to outright block this traffic. This is something that's actually discussed in the original article (or one of the many I've read about this attack since). I'm starting to think we need a dual layered internet where the vast majority of users only have access to websites (and maybe force them to use https?) and anything more than this is an extra you opt into. Of course as soon as we did this then ISP's would jump on the chance to charge you for all the extras you need, vpn? charge for that, you host a server? charge for that... etc
I don't know what the fix is :(
In my new gig our ticket system actually shows the local time *of the person who raised it* in the main ticket interface
I don't know why I've never seen this before (granted, I've never supported anything US based before, only europe and then most of the timezones are pretty close to 'local' local time.
I've had this for a number of weeks, maybe even months.... I do recall a time without it, and wishing for it but it appeared long enough ago that I don't recall when i was...
and yet only one person had fraudulant activity and they knew about it fast enough to block it....
so they got the email from sony to tell them they'd just brought something....
so the 'hackers' didn't change the email address prior to the 'buying spee' of one item?
Suddenly things aren't so simple anymore.
You need more upvotes.
There was no 'hacking' here, just someone stupid with no idea how to secure their own cash.
.... you've just agreed with the OP. Anyway 5yr used to be the standard for warranty I'd look for, for at least a desktop system that's getting harder and harder.
I'm starting to wonder if we will see warranties which depend on time drive has been running rather than clock time. Warranty for 500,000 hrs run time would be far more trusted than it can sit in a box for 3 years and be fine!.
3 year warranty..... :(
So how many of those games allow split screen?
Meanwhile on google plus, you can do this plus have automatic "Event" mode, in which anyone who is coming to the event can enable this, and all photos taken between the two times (of the start and end of the event) will automatically be added to the album....
So that'll be coming to a facebook soon then?
Theres the idiot in a rush question.
Would an idiot in a rush confuse the two? I'd argue no, because it's bright green...... however it is clearly a bright green batman with a yellow cloak wielding a blue sword.
O2 might turn this on by default for contracts, but all operators don't.
The number of parents who buy their kid's contract phones, and never inform the operator that a under 18 is operating the phone means we have many "WHY DID YOU LET LITTLE JOHNNY CALL THOSE LINES!" customer complaints, after little johnny has made it very clear he is pretending to be 18.
Well the comment about O2 on 3G is incorrect.
All mobile operators supply a way to block adult content simply by letting them know, you can also block other services such as premium rate phone lines etc.
How do I know? Well I have a work phone on O2, and in some cases I need to check access to things and this may end up being of an adult nature. :D There is nothing blocked other than the default list which blocks cp.
So you expect to change how energy transfer works within physics? Yup, that would be quite some breakthrough!
Who says they aren't?
They had the anon guy for 9 months before revealing their hand.
So buy a pedometer.
This is a product for someone who wants to understand what they are intaking and outputting all in one simple package.
You want to check your heart rate? It's quite simple, here is your wrist, here are some fingers. Now count.
Or maybe a Computer Producer taking over the entire worlds music retailing....
1.Send text message to get beer
2. Get charged via return text message...
3. return text message contains code to open "fridge" on the 'copter....
4. Beer ends up in right hands \o/
(Disclaimer, I work for a company who sell text messaging solutions so many my views are blurred by this, but haven't I just solved the problem?)
That's bad battery design.
The batteries physically expand as they charge. If they expand so much they become compressed they can be damaged. If their casing is so small they can't charge to full size? BAD DESIGN.
Then again it's Sony.... so I'm not too surprised.
They are ping pong balls. I guess they are following that "fit an experiement in a ping pong ball and you can send it into space" thing that seems to be popular currently.
I just tried it out. It let me retry as many times as I needed to hit the right combination.
For people who think themselves intelligent, they've utterly failed in understanding how spam bots work.
The technology is often used to frustrate humans signing up to web mail accounts and similar services.
You know, while this is a joke, it'd be a really REALLY good idea.
They could map out how much radiation they are seeing at various points to give some kind of "spread" map.
And gotten lots of nice free publicity.
Strange how that worked out so well eh?
Ah so your one of these homeless bods who never leaves his house right?
Shame that its the 0.01% of bacteria that make us Ill, eh?
Sadly all you've proven is we should either start eating poop or bow down to our poop eating overlords.
Not really.... thats the entire point of their design.
