Are they going to start arresting everyone who runs subscription VPN services next? O_o That guy set up a portal to access... 32 sites was it? My VPN subscription (for which the normal use is watching French and German telly) allows me to access PRETTY MUCH EVERY BLOCKED SITE.
Re: HTC cant write firmware for toffee
Anecdotal experience is anecdotal. I've owned several HTC handsets and they have all been awesome.
Re: My tuppence...
They really ought to be *made* to start the ball rolling. Such blatant anti-competitive and consumer-harming practices stink.
Re: Government forward planning.
I actually think /most/ of them are VERY clever. Many of them are also self-serving, manipulative, acquisitive, arrogant, thieving scumbags who will stop at nothing - tell any lie, obfuscate their true intentions at every opportunity, play different groups in society off against one another, deliberately sow discontent, single out those least able to defend themselves; all the while with their smug, self satisfied, superior little smirk on their face (particularly Cambo and Osborne - I bet they had that same smirk when engaging in the old favourite pastime oftrashing the restaurants of Oxford (and Osborne definitely had it when he was pictured with the hooker coked off his face)). They exist only in order to advance their own agenda. If any policies benefit any of the people, it is almost certainly going to be those few people who live in the constituencies which ever change hands. The rest of us can forget about having any actual say in this country which is laughably termed a "democracy".
Still no service for me in Southport near Liverpool. On Tesco here.
Why on earth are people even responding to this fairly obvious troll seriously? Unless he is presently sat at his PC wearing his tinfoil deflector hat I don't understand why he would think they had any good reason to lie for a moment. Have particle physicists demonstrated a tendency or predilection toward lying or incompetence that I am unaware of?
As is always the case their data will eventually be available for the rest of their field and anyone else who is interested to review. With a few notable exceptions competing scientists are not renowned for going easy on one another. Their data will be picked apart with a fine toothed comb by everyone with the interest and knowledge to properly interpret it because if there is one thing a scientist loves it is proving another scientist wrong. Many people seem to believe that the fact that scientists often disagree demonstrates that their conclusions are irrelevant. On the contrary, this is the very essence of how our knowledge advances; different people approach problems from different angles and predict how they think things are working. Then everybody tests it; the scientists that were correct are vindicated and those that were incorrect lick their wounds but are still pleased that we have inched a little closer to a comprehensive understanding of our world.
Re: Strongest indication yet!
I'm pretty certain that was his point.
Re: Oh, Edmund... can it be true? That I hold here, in my mortal hand, a nugget of purest Green?
I know a bloke in the pub who can get you as many nuggets of purest green as you like, nice stuff too :p
...is either the best troll I've seen for a while or a few sandwiches short of a picnic. I really can't tell anymore sometimes.
Am I the only one who doesn't quite understand the shit storm about the social media spying thing? Unless what she was doing was creating fake personas and interacting with people on a friendship sort of level, betraying their trust etc. in order to gather intelligence. That would be fairly reprehensible. If she just made some accounts and joined some "Argyll and Bute council suck ass" Facebook groups then I'm not sure I see the problem. Got links to an more info?
I can't believe that anybody doesn't know what IP stands for these days. At the very least it would take intelligence of at most simian level to figure out what the I means.
Paris because she would have figured it out.
