SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Well to be fair, the banks can afford it.
But if they can afford that, then they can afford to get their IT affairs in order.
BT simply cannot be trusted to give a straight answer
Who says advertising doesn't work!? :D
Did no one at those groups stop to think about the unfortunate implications of this?
And beer according to Alex Brett @16:28
Are you saying that I should move my money out of HSBC?
They know how to keep their troublemakers in line!
The proof is left as an exercise for the universe.
I think I'm going to need a bigger can of Raid!
In the real world, you wouldn't necessarily know an attack is coming, or where it would be directed.
I doubt this "attack" will employ any techniques that the defending staff haven't specifically been told to prepare for.
That's a Hohmann transfer!
I suggest that the governments affected sue the perpetrators from orbit. This kind of collateral damage could have been prevented had the original developers actually targeted their attack.
Someone at Google/Motorola doesn't know how the human body works apparently.
And a urine sample.
You know, that one you could get on Linux desktops. Where all the darleks chased you around the screen.
Someone must know what I'm on about.
Is this publicly available so that sysadmins can run preventative measures?
Are the NSA really that interested in my high score on Plants Vs Zombies?
I'm pretty sure I already have a device in my house that's doing that right at the moment.
And my oven already has a timer on it.
She can't get her own house in order (remember that fiasco with her border staff just letting everyone through because they were "under staffed"), so she's very neatly trying to sweep the problem under someone elses rug.
Most landlords have a hard enough time maintaining their properties. They have neither the time, nor the qualifications to verify the identity and eligibility of someone to stay in the UK. Hell, if the Home Office itself can't figure out who's legally entitled to live in the UK, how is a landlord?
I am at work.
My code's compiling.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" seems like a nice place to start. I read that in a declaration of independence somewhere.
And so it would seem, is data.
In future, I recommend closing the stable door before the horse has bolted.
Well done. Have .1 of a cake.
That's because anyone running XP 64-bit has to be a freaking wizard to get any drivers to work with it!
I full support the call for a George Takei Icon.
(even though George Takei is an icon)
And good to know that in a pinch, my HTC can be used as a bullet proof vest panel.
Yeah, you can guarantee that we're already being gouged by the current price fixing scandal that will only come to light in 2020.
Why so much? Is each pod equipped with a mini bar and a monkey butler?
If they skimp on security to the point where a bunch of script kiddies can crack his accounts, I wonder what the rest of their security is like?
You could probably break into the White House if you know which rock they hide the front door key under.
Hang on. Hacker == Intent?
Is having the necessary computer skills really the same as going equipped to cause damage?
I wouldn't mind getting spam at all if I was paid for it.
I think that £1 per message would do it.
I bet he drinks Carling Black Label
Nvidia's CUDA is a great introduction to parallel computing. Recently, I've been looking at CUDA to do financial calculations. A problem that lends itself very well to parallel computing, as there are a lot of calculations that don't depend on the results of others.
Rather than go through each transaction sequentially, work can be divided up and farmed out to the graphics card and the length of the task is shorter by orders of magnitude.
It would be "irresponsible of Facebook to post beheading videos" if Facebook were doing that. But it's not. It's a piece of software.
It is the [b]people using the software[/b] that are the problem!
Would it not make more sense to hire the ones that don't make a habit of getting caught? I'm no expert, but I'd have thought that not getting caught would be the defining characteristic that separates the skilled hackers from the regular ones.
Was she copying the Tulisa Contostavlos sex vid?
Be grateful that no one has shown you lemonparty yet.
I remember a time when there was a simple way to stop children from using computers that they weren't supposed to. There was a lock on the front panel that would disable the keyboard.
Are they absolutely sure this is a mistake?
For all we know Google could be selling a rock that keeps DDoS attacks away.
Had a denial of service attack? No? The rock must be working then!
