There has got to be a way to get a probe out there (eventually)
I know it would take a while, but I'd love to take a gander at these worlds up close!
It's just a fancy word for bribe.
How do they know that they're arms and not legs?
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.
Re: how to watch the Daily Show int he UK
Bugger. I failed step 1. No TV.
Too be fair
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.
Is Google expanding their searches to the real world?
Ok, Glass. Where did I leave my keys?
(Robot scurries off to retrieve them)
Reminds me of the whole .co.uk vs .com thing 15 years ago.
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.
We send probes to other bodies all the time.
Why can't we send one to Europa to basically melt its way through the ice, then fire a submarine probe down there?
Well what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander
Do we have to actually ask businesses for their data or can we just take it?
"We're going to inject you will bull semen Mr Smith"
Are you absolutely sure you're a doctor?
We made more money than almost anybody on the PLANET
And yet he says that like it's a good thing.
Re: Don't encourage the old git
Only if he doesn't get the death sentence.
Do the pipes go....
'nurieek', 'rotut', 'hernunger'?
DIY in space
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.
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!
So what you're saying is...
If I'm going to Antarctica, I ought to pack a sweater?
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! :)
What is the difference (if any) between the following:
1) Using LOIC during a coordinated attack.
2) Using LOIC by yourself.
3) Leaving a brick on F5.
Re: Further proof that these things are childish toys.
I for one like playing with childish toys.
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.
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.
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.
BSkyB makes one complaint about BT, and the ASA listens.
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.
I say we send a rag tag team of scientists to investigate.
Although I think someone's already made that movie.
What are you doing tonight Emanuel Loertscher?

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.
"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.
In any good bar
There's always a pool table.
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.
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.
Really hardcore computer users don't use linux or windows
They write their own operating systems from scratch!
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.
