Human error is when you make an accidental mistake.
This wasn't human error, this was deliberate.
But the people on 4chan are always so nice!
They are some of the most kind and honest people I've seen on the internet.
Why The Register of all publications would try and besmirch the good name of this wholesome family friendly site is beyond me.
Even in the criminal underworld
The rich get all the perks.
"£91m in IT assets will be worthless five years from now"
Code that works is an asset. Code that doesn't work is a liability.
"code worth £91m would only be used until a "digital solution" is implemented."
Ah, no wonder the code doesn't work. It's an analogue code solution!
City of London Police
I always thought that it was the job of the police to protect law and order. Not act as the private army of corporations.
I've redefined dog poop as steak.
But for some reason, it still tastes like shit.
You'd be surprised about what you can learn about a photo with Tineye
It's like the Google of images.
By Grabthar's hammer!
That's one hell of a headline! :)
Re: Further proof that these things are childish toys.
I for one like playing with childish toys.
Re: This should be the standard punishment...
Re: Backtraced eh?
He should have used 7 proxies.
Where are the juicy pictures?
If ever an article needed a few visual aids it was this one!
Re: If it's such an offence. Then why hasn't Peaches Geldof been arrested?
There's a risk of those two poor babies being identified.
Re: balaclava, shotgun and a crowbar
"balaclava, shotgun and a crowbar"
Even without the shotgun, the police would call that going equipped.
If it's such an offence. Then why hasn't Peaches Geldof been arrested?
A few high profile prosecutions making an example of people that flout the law should do the trick.
BSkyB makes one complaint about BT, and the ASA listens.
Thousands of us make complaints about BT, and the ASA does nothing.
I'm guessing that her defence for doing 80 in a 65 zone will be:
If my Google Glass was turned on, I'd be able to prove that I wasn't doing 80mph.
Once? Ok, everyone has the odd hiccup here and there.
Twice? Really? Well hopefully they've learned their lessons now...
Again? This is starting to look less like random glitches and more like rank incompetence.
What are you doing tonight Emanuel Loertscher?
"Oh I'm just hanging out in my noise proof/mobile phone proof underground laboratory."
Re: Meh… EULAs
As a consumer, there's no way any contract can remove or override your statutory rights under UK law.
Re: Google Analytics / Google Ads
There's a list of Google domains on Wikipedia. Copy and past to your hosts file and redirect to 127.0.0.1.
Job done. You can now safely surf the internet without using Google.
This can be solved with proper Reverse Management.
Delegate upwards, and they wont have time to notice that you've slipped out for a quiet beer :)
Still a drop in the ocean compared to the obscene level of "bonuses" some bank staff get.
"It is almost impossible not to use Google services on the internet."
It's not even close to impossible. Has Jacob Kohnstamm even actually tried using the internet without using Google?
I don't think he has.
Re: !Subtle under tones
REMINDS AMERICAN WORDS REALLY AWAY SORT REPEATS MESSAGE OBVIOUSLY NEED MANY. ADVERT EMPHASIZE WATCHING MESSAGE. MESSAGES VIDEO EMPHASISED MESSAGE. SUMMING MESSAGE LAST MESSAGE THAT.
Damn. It doesn't look like there's a secret message in there at all. Maybe there's some other kind of cypher I'm missing.
Dirty minded people at the DVLA
It's a bit of a stretch to see those strings of letters and numbers. The DVLA are acting like schoolboys that have just discovered that they can look up "rude" words in the dictionary.
Re: nobody is that stupid
You'd be surprised how cocky some criminals will get.
Why do these idiots insist on trying to tackle the wrong end of the problem?
The European Court of Justice should have made sure that Pedro Cruz Villalón knew how the internet worked before letting him embarrass them like this.
Using ISP's to regulate access to the internet has been tried before and it's failed spectacularly. In the case of The Pirate Bay, it caused the site to go from just a single site and a handful of mirrors into a distributed mirrored site with urls into the hundreds.
Pedro Cruz Villalón should study the problem he proposes to solve so that he doesn't make the situation worse.
4 Jobs rolled into one!
So that's like 4 paychecks rolled into one, right?
Re: Never underestimate a starving hacker.
If he's a Nork hacker then he's probably got a gun to his head.
And if Swordfish taught us anything, it's that hackers with a gun to their head code approximately 182% faster.
What exactly is Lily Coles relevance?
She didn't write it, she probably wont use it, and she's managed to get hold of £200,000 of tax payers money to do it.
You could quite easily replace Lily with any other meat puppet and the result would be exactly the same.
A quieter helicopter?
Does this mean an end to the sleep deprived nights caused by police choppers circling over my house?
"Everything with a hole in it is a vagina?"
Well it doesn't look like a giant penis.
Re: The thing that gets me...
Who doesn't back up valuable data?
That's blue sky thinking right there...
"only to shoot up in huge spurts for the rest of the day."
Jasper Hamill, you can expect an invoice for a new keyboard in 2 - 3 working days.
Sounds like someone has a high opinion of themselves.
Re: solve the middle east crisis once and for all!
We could start with air drops of chocolate brownies.
If that fails to pacify the region, we can gradually increase the dose.
Pay peanuts for web developers
And this is the quality of site you get.
Everybody above this line
Has been trolled.
The thing that gets me...
Is that people are actually paying the ransom!
You don't have to kill yourself to win a darwin award. All you have to do is remove yourself from the genepool. I think there's more than one guy that it's been awarded to for removing their ability to reproduce.
