Buy Your Own Device: No more shiny-shiny work mobe for you

Tony Mudd

Take your number when you leave.

Having a personal number is good when you come to leave your current employer.....

A colleague recently left, but couldn't take mobile number with him - I'm not sure of the full details, but something about the network charging GBP150 to allow this - it's not like the number was in the middle of a block of numbers matching our DDI or something.

Should I pre-empt this problem now ? - (I'm not planning on leaving soon, but it's possible sometime in the next 20 years), or get myself a personal phone (again) and stop carrying the work one everywhere..... If I leave this discussion until working notice, then the company has no incentive...

Be Your Own Big Brother: Peeking at pussy

Tony Mudd

I'm toying with the idea of using a Raspberry Pi to detect which cat is outside the catflap - shouldn't be too hard, since ours is completely black and the intruder is ginger......

MtGox accepted new customers JUST DAYS before collapse

Tony Mudd

recycling the bitcoins?

From what I understand, the problem was that you could double your withdrawals?

So it's possible someone worked this out, then emptied his MtGox wallet. Then had to put something back in, to be able to do the same hack again..... But it's a crypto currency, so the same coins weren't being recycled - makes your brain hurt.

Jean Michel Jarre: Je voudrais un MUSIC TAX sur VOTRE MOBE

Not value for money.

While we're complaining about JMJ not being value for money - I'm still annoyed at going to see him a year or so ago at Wembley - he played for just over an hour - not good value.

Now I'm going to have no chance of justifying the expense of going to the next Houston-type concert.

Selectively turn customers off?

What they should do, is conduct a survey of all customers, on Nuclear, Wind, Solar etc, so when there are power shortages in the future (which there will be, until a government makes some unpopular decisions), they can turn off the customers who are anti-Nuclear, anti-French or wherever the remaining power is coming from.

Reg hack uncovers perfect antidote to internet

Alert

Safer idea?

I'd always wondered about something similar (but for rain-water storage rather than a well), but starting with the concrete rings at ground-level, and just digging out inside them, and a little bit under the bottom edge as it slides down. Probably need a larger diameter than used here, and couldn't use a machine......

Would it work - how far down would you get before the rings got stuck?
