Facebook is down, and I wanted to post on Facebook that it was down. But I couldn't.

I discovered similar on a Twitter client for Nokia some years back. The issue was while testing a mitm attack it would attempt to transmit via SSL and through various iterations of the software either 1) ignore the cert error and continue or 2) revert to non-SSL.
Would be interested in checking the behavior after they 'fix' this one.
I suppose that as this guy used the stolen credit card to purchase his plump-loving website subscription he can be sure its the guy that nicked the laptop (well, certainly a crim using somebody elses cards).
Unlike the India story where the guy gifted the laptop in the end.
Wish I hadn't read this at breakfast time to be honest, could've done without 'wank face' while tucking into my coco pops.
Governments charging taxes and then not spending them correctly/on the intended target?
Re: Pratical World
In addition to Amazon giving you full free access to trial pretty much everything. Google has just pulled their free apps for new signups, and I agree I cannot work out if/how to host with them either (Wordpress or other).
Amazon EC2 free tier, + 30GB storage free + RDS + Route53 for redundancy = 12 months free playing and they have me slightly tied in if I fill it all up (currently using it as a backup from my own vms)
Re: me too
Mobile calls aren't secure anyway. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/08/02/gsm_cracking/ + others.
But BT WiFi isn't free, its 'included' if you're a BT customer and sign up to it. Or they charge a fortune.
Annoys me when they say free and actually it isn't free. ElReg should know better.
Time to fix and reroute is based on the TTL specified, if you login and look at the healthcheck settings it says that Route53 recommends 'less than 60 secs' TTL for a DNS entry in order to reroute quickly. You have full control over all the DNS settings so - do it as quick as you want.
I'm using it, it is really very very good.

... PDFs - assume you didn't read the article, good work.

... "Blocking the attack can be achieved by [...] adding random time delays to CBC-mode decryption"
More costly dreadfully thought out pish
As above it has just led to user annoyance/scare tactic. 2 non-IT friends mentioned to me the other day "So what are cookies, I should worry about them, right?"
They're still no wiser and the best explanation was "you need them if you shop online otherwise it won't work". Unscrupulous types can still easily just not bother warning users, they're the ones to worry about.
It's yet another case of only the honest actually following the law and as a result wasting legitimate peoples time and money implementing something that hasn't worked and won't be enforced.
ICO obviously adhering to the rule of "Do as I say, don't do as a do!" with their implied consent then.
PS - I still don't fully understand the 'rules', if GA is used on the site should that fall under the warning or just account for it in the site Ts and Cs? I think I'll just stick to self-analysing my apache logs to get user figures.
Re: How can I watch it?
Ahh yes, "SixTV" running on Analogue Ch47 I remember. Reception was terrible, content was worse.
Local 'TV' company OxBox TV are running from Witney, I read they didn't bother trying to get access to this opportunity and web for IPTV only. Seems to be 1) the future and 2) cheap to run compare to 'proper' broadcasting.
Re: I am not a lumberjack but.....
I guess that it'll alert the authorities to respond quick enough that the will go to the signal location in the hope the loggers are still there thus proving they did and apprehending them.
