Re: Ban Father Ted
Down with that sort of thing!
So basically, what the ISC are saying is...
That websites that could be used for messaging ought to be reading every single message that passes through it and then reporting on the correspondents to the authorities.
That's just absurd. Has the ISC any idea how complex it is for a computer system to glean the semantics of a message? It's hard enough for humans sometimes.
The Scrubs musical episode was right!
Everything does come down to poo!
Two cars travelling in opposite directions on a mountain road...
I'd imagine that the two cars would be aware of each other and their location. The software would know of all the places on the road where two cars could pass safely and then the software would manoeuvre the vehicles to the nearest passing place and resolve the deadlock there.
No one needs to get rammed off the road at all.
Why is it the two lads doing all the work?

Website reports an error code of 418.
Re: Outer Space Act of 1986
I'm applying right now. I'll let you know how I get on.
The cause of the IT incident...
"The cause of the IT incident was the failure of the banks to have the proper controls in place to identify and manage exposure to the IT risks within their business" - The Regulator
I thought that the cause was the bank outsourcing their IT operations to people that had never seen a mainframe before.
First it's LCD displays...
Next we'll be seeing whole swarms of these things tearing apart ship hulks for scrap.
Re: How heavy ?!
Prostitution is just as illegal as being a peeping tom.
I don't know why. It just is.
Poke the Hivemind
You might as well try kicking a Grizzly Bear in the nuts.
Re: sattelite spying sattelite?
There's your Kickstarter pitch right there...
It's obviously a "Weather Satellite"
Like in Maximum Overdrive...
"There are ten million viruses in a drop of sea water"
So more like searching for a needle in a needle stack then?
"The game is still on track for a December 16 release"
I think I'll wait for Space Citizen then...
Re: The bible is a book ?
Pedants would say that it's a collection of 66 books.
The Bible? Which one?
Must be The C Programming Language by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie
Re: Piratebay still seems to be operating??
DNS censorship solved the problem of the pirate bay once and for all.
ONCE AND FOR ALL!
Finally! A star that looks good giving birth!
I'd rather watch this than Josie Cunningham any day.
Vodaphone are still trashing my credit rating
Even though I finished my contract with them years ago. If they can't get simple addition right, then what chance to they have of providing a stable telephone signal?
I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't come with an actual Dalek robot.
It probably wouldn't take me too long to build one though...
"I built something" he announced.
I have a hard time believing that he actually built the thing.
Trolls like Trolling
It gets better (or worse depending on your perspective)
There are hard drives that you can wipe remotely. And they will wipe themselves should they not be able to pick up a GSM signal after a certain length of time.
Putting one of these devices into a Faraday cage would actually cause the device to wipe itself.
Re: What? No KITT?
And the red light going back and forth. How could you forget that bit?
Technically, they aren't being evil...
Fiddlers who weren't too fussed about the copyrights of Nintendo
If I already own the cartridge, then don't I already have a licence to play the game? If I want to play Pokémon LeafGreen on my phone, I'm not depriving anyone of their money if I've already bought the game.
Re: I think you forgot the "S" after "METEOR".
I guess it depends on how big it is.
I bought the book. It's mine.
And if there's one thing that I hate more than anything else when I'm reading, it's someone reading over my shoulder Adobe!
Re: Voice recognition in fighters?
There's a big problem trying to get them to open the bomb bay doors.
Re: Cyberdyne Systems
"Court orders received - even if that number is zero."
It follows that if Twitter is suing the US government, then the number of court orders they have received is not zero.
Even if they can't disclose the exact number of court orders, could they disclose a ball-park figure? Something like "In 2013, Twitter received somewhere between 15,345.5 and 15,346.5 court orders."
If they are seriously expecting me to read the entire license agreement
Then I reserve the right to charge them for my time at the usual hourly rate. Why the hell should I have to read through 400 pages of legaleese just to use my own hardware?
"Copyright exception allowing them to make a private copy of a music CD"
I thought we already had that? Why on earth would there be legislation making backups illegal?
I can't imagine a more useless type of encryption.
I'd like Sir John Scarlett to name one case where that's happened.
I'm not saying that he's making it up, but fantastic claims like his need some sort of corroborating evidence.
Where do I apply?
I can't really do a worse job can I?
Re: Do they not read the news?
It also causes immigrants to come into the country to claim benefits and steal your job!
A system of tubes
If those tubes are pneumatic, then I'm all for it!
(Conceivably, if the tubes were large enough, you could use them to transport people, Futurama style...)
Re: no idea why anyone needs gigabit internet connectivity at home...
It's for downloading large amounts of "research material".
Even if James Comey got everything he ever wanted ..
And Google, Apple, et al stopped implementing encryption completely. What's to stop me from running my own encryption program?
If he were to make encryption illegal, only criminals would have any privacy.
I'm safe. I use a Microsoft Windows system.
I dread to think how many down votes I'm going to get...
8. He3 mining.
There's loads of it up there on the moon.
Maybe if they put an FBI Warning in front of every email...
It worked with piracy didn't it?
Why can't we all just get along?
Re: Get a proofreader.
It's still a level of journalism above a Daily Mail article. Have you seen some of the stuff they publish? It's tough to find an article there that doesn't have spelling and grammar mistakes.
Re: And here we go again...
Well you've obviously got something to hide, or you wouldn't be encrypting it!
Encryption just by itself seems to be regarded as suspicious by law enforcement bodies now, with absolutely no justification for that suspicion. The UK government fears encryption so much that they passed a law making it legal to compel a suspect to give up encryption keys.
Re: Sauce for the goose?
That was also my interpretation of the proposed "law".
They've invented a radio controlled boat.
How innovative! No one has ever done that before. How do they keep coming up with these fresh ideas?
Why do they keep lying when they are so easily caught out?
