I'm guessing she sleeps fitfully on a big pile of other peoples money.
Good idea, but why go to all the trouble when you can simply tile the floor in gravity plating?
What's it going to take to convince them this is a bad idea? Everyone in the UK putting on a Guy Fawkes mask and marching down to London?
And it will only be used against pedoterrorists.
And we all know how well that turned out don't we....
DavCrav showing his True Colours there :)
I'm no criminal mastermind, but I'd have thought that when the news story broke and people started getting arrested, anyone involved would have deleted absolutely everything that could possibly contain any forensic data.
Murder suicide pact. Eve was devastated.
Just scaled up.
Except that Baroness Shields says in the next breath "that companies that provide end-to-end encrypted applications [...] must be subject to decryption and that information handed over to law enforcement "in extremis"." blatantly contradicting herself.
The trouble is, any mechanism that enables the government to ask for decryption "in extremis" means that there's a mechanism there to be exploited by other people that might want to see my data.
That should be enough for anybody...
When else are you ever going to get the chance to use that line?
A degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and a peerage apparently. No wonder she doesn't have a clue about all this new fangled encryption and stuff.
Then they've got nothing to fear surely?
Does smoking pot give people hacking superpowers or something?
I remember getting the demo tape off the front of a magazine for this and on the B side they had the music from the arcade version.
It's basically a kettle lead with the end cut off and an exposed live wire.
(Why is there no BOFH icon?)
How do they compare to regular human meat drivers when it comes to spotting them?
I agree. We should hold out for a prototype that's a cut above the rest.
It's the most secure (and fun) way to erase data.
I can imagine this problem will only get worse once my phone literally has the ability to wander off.
Shouldn't it be called water based magma?
I thought he was political satire, like Stephen Colbert.
At yeast you used your loaf and put some thought into it.
The Internet is not something that you just dump a load of stuff on. It's not a mountain. You see, the internet is like a series of tubes. And if you don't understand, those tubes can be filled. And if they are filled, then emptying them would create a lake.
The problem with that is the children in that material are real people just like you and me, and they might not want their documented abuse available for perverts to use.
Would you want naked pictures of yourself available to perverts on a register?
It doesn't really matter if he says he was unaware or not.
He is the CEO, and ultimately the buck stops with him.
Do they not know or just not care? Either way it's only a matter of time before some radiology machine gets hacked and someone gets a lethal dose of radiation.
It's not like they can plead poverty either. A decent IT staff costs a lot less than one doctor.
The company I was working for at the time had a large number of old windows XP machines that I was maintaining and one user had an issue where her machine would keep switching itself off.
After looking at the machine and reproducing the problem but finding nothing wrong with the software, I decided to pop the case off.
Spiders started running out from everywhere and the machine was thick with webs inside. By some miracle of engineering the fan was still turning but only just. Anyway, after half an hour with a toothbrush and a vacuum cleaner I finally got the damn thing stable again and handed the working machine back to the user.
Naturally, she wanted to know what was wrong with it and how I'd fixed it. So I told her that the machine was stuffed with webs and spiders. "Oh... is that an internet thing" She asked.
"No." I replied. "You literally had a PC filled with spiders."
We know that you can hear us ...
Until I saw that it was £6,500...
And the pinball bit didn't actually work.
This will revolutionise the gaming industry!
I'll get my coat.
Apparently the telescope consists of cylindrical reflectors roughly the size and shape of snowboarding half-pipes.
Have they applied for a grant?
What we need is a programming language based on txtspeak...
Hang on... That's CJam isn't it?
Have you tried doing any kind of non-trivial development work on a tablet? I wouldn't wish that experience on anybody!
How does it work?
I can see the line getting quite blurry if you can make the distinction in software.
I'm going to borrow that one.
But what kind of atmosphere would you get from nuking the poles? I'm guessing it would be mostly wet and full of carbon dioxide.
I'm thinking that comets rich in nitrogen ice aimed at the poles would give slightly better results.
You owe me one new keyboard. (And a coffee)
And how much actually made it back?
Doughnut sales in Olot have gone through the roof.
Why not both?
How is that going to help? I thought Microsoft were giving it away for free?
