It's just a fancy word for bribe.

It's just a fancy word for bribe.
I pay my Virgin Media bill every month. And in that bill I get the basic TV package bundled in.
Even though I just want internet access.
So I'm paying for it anyway. Even though I don't watch it.
Bugger. I failed step 1. No TV.
A lot of those risks are the same with regular currency.
There's nothing that the EBA can do if someone nicks my leather wallet either.
Ok, Glass. Where did I leave my keys?
(Robot scurries off to retrieve them)
People would pay more for the .com name because they saw it as more prestigious.
I actually had a client ask me once which was better... And they refused to believe me when I told them there was functionally no difference.
Why can't we send one to Europa to basically melt its way through the ice, then fire a submarine probe down there?
Do we have to actually ask businesses for their data or can we just take it?
Are you absolutely sure you're a doctor?
And yet he says that like it's a good thing.
Only if he doesn't get the death sentence.
'nurieek', 'rotut', 'hernunger'?
Well who else is going to do it? It's a bit of a long trek to get a repair man in.
Why are you blaming the victim AC?
If it was your pictures up there of you in the buff, along with your personal contact information would you still have the same attitude? Do you think that the site owner was right to charge extortionate amounts of money to maybe take them down?
Human error is when you make an accidental mistake.
This wasn't human error, this was deliberate.
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.
The rich get all the perks.
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!
If I'm going to Antarctica, I ought to pack a sweater?
I always thought that it was the job of the police to protect law and order. Not act as the private army of corporations.
But for some reason, it still tastes like shit.
It's like the Google of images.
That's one hell of a headline! :)
1) Using LOIC during a coordinated attack.
2) Using LOIC by yourself.
3) Leaving a brick on F5.
I for one like playing with childish toys.
He should have used 7 proxies.
If ever an article needed a few visual aids it was this one!
There's a risk of those two poor babies being identified.
A few high profile prosecutions making an example of people that flout the law should do the trick.
If my Google Glass was turned on, I'd be able to prove that I wasn't doing 80mph.
Thousands of us make complaints about BT, and the ASA does nothing.
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.
Although I think someone's already made that movie.
"Oh I'm just hanging out in my noise proof/mobile phone proof underground laboratory."
As a consumer, there's no way any contract can remove or override your statutory rights under UK law.
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.
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.
There's always a pool table.
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.
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.
They write their own operating systems from scratch!
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.
You'd be surprised how cocky some criminals will get.
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.
So that's like 4 paychecks rolled into one, right?
