Very well as I recall.

Interesting how worked up this thread seems to have got you AC... With this and the following five AC splaffs fired off in such rapid succession and in such similar tone.
Something to declare?
Superbly smug & sneery snap. Why can't our Reg manage something like that?
Not so sure about the rigorousness of the Aussie's copy though. Spotted a couple of glaring factual errors in that caption alone:
Founded in 2002, Ashley Madison, the world's biggest online
dating fraud website for married men and women, has had over 20 million users victims in 30 regions all over the world. (Reuters: Bobby Yip)
Any chance of a mugshot of the good man himself for the "hero [sic] pic" in these AM/ALM articles Reg?
OK Ledswinger, I'l bite...
"And with the Reg, half the value is from the joy of being an unpaid member of the Commentariat. If they think I'm paying for the privilege of writing and reading stuff like this, they've got another think coming."
So, if you refuse to pay for things that bring you joy, what DO you pay for?...
(moot curiosity: upvoted regardless)
Correct choice of words. Not meaning to get in the way of a good frog bashing... but... Other phobias, anxiety disorders, etc are all recognised and treated appropriately so I don't see any reason why "EMSS" should be excluded from that. Something being intangible or irrational really isn't grounds to deny study or treatment.
"The few I receive get the long weight treatment."
You beat them with a plumb-bob "Dr Syntax"?
Because it wasn't funny?
You seem to be assuming that the rash of crude opportunist extortion is being perpetrated by the original leaker(s). I very much doubt that. I imagine that if they have anything left to do it'll be very carefully planned and precisely targeted, and quietly executed under the generous cover of this recently incited flailing frenzy...
Nope. Not since "we" introduced NZ flatworms, anyway.
Some idea of your daughter's idea of "cheap" would be helpful. Along with any specific requirements like radio speed and band coverage.
I'd always favour (new) old stock over s/h old stock for this sort of stuff and probably be looking at things like these:
US$160 Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 http://www.ebay.com/itm/261974415727
US$210 Note 2 GT-N7100 http://www.ebay.com/itm/252032497383
US$310 Note 3 GT-N9005 http://www.ebay.com/itm/331609748395
I wonder what the S7 and Note6 won't have. Microphones?
Not that the US government feels it has done much wrong: former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice recently said, within The Reg's earshot, that ”the rules” mean the USA is allowed to spy in the name of freedom and democracy but China isn't allowed to.
Um, quite the contrary. The fact that top US politicians are scuttling about spewing ridiculous excuses and rhetoric proves that in fact they do fully understand that they've put themselves on a rather sticky wicket.
I have a suspicion the shouty ones won't be participating :(
>"User Experience Improving" junk comes free, with every Windows equipped pc...
I thought you were saying something else there for a moment ;o)
"Anyone fancy a slice?"
About 95% of the market. Apparently.
>Possibly they have become confused as to what the "S&M" in their dept. name stands for.
Empirical evidence would suggest they have a pretty firm grip on it
How about you STOP splattering that shit into your articles Reg?
"Climate science" has never been science. Think more along the lines of sociology, cosmetology or astrology.
(Not meaning to "diss" the geologists, chemists, physicists, astronomers, etc who definitely aren't "climate scientists" and would doubtless hate to be mistaken for such)
Thinking the same
...climate deniers use to “prove” ...
I wonder when the next service at the cult of Warmism will be... so I can give it a miss.
What's wrong with you Reg? I'm not sure how much more of this warmist/denier twattery I can take.
"That would be safety nets around he edge of the roof, no?"
I was thinking something like a weekly questionnaire might be involved too:
Are you happy working at Foxconn and positive about the future?
[ _ ] Yes
[ _ ] No
With "no" resulting in immediate dismissal. Natch.
"Ahhh the perils of free advise from "experts" on the interwebs."
Were you attempting to evoke the concept of advice there, AC? Paradoxically your splaff appears to be simultaneously both ironic and prophetic... a sort of Schrödinger’s splaff?
notoften these days that you are disappointed by a product."
WTF has the author been snorting? Methinks an exhaustive group review of "IoT" shit is in order for edification&contrition purposes. Don't forget to include "smart" (the new word for fugly?) watches and every other "wearable" ...and $300 thermometers... and CO2 sensors... and lamps which allow your neighbours to spy on your children... and so on.
...and then dump the lot into the nearest landfill...
Why the "joke alert"?
I bet Paris knows a thing or two about judgemental interwebs -->
Are you seriously expecting us to watch that rootkit you've embedded into an article about GCHQ/Echelon Reg?
I believe someone else once thought the same. A long time ago.
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin 1755
"...and be convicted by an authoritarian regime!"
I'll see your angels and raise you a hundred million or so "alien abductions"
a cross-platform nasty capable of infecting both Windows and Linux machines.
Odd that the Windows angle didn't garner more than a glancing mention. How effective is it on that other targeted platform? Are Windows trojans (earth to Reg: That aint what a "backdoor" is) really so passé that we can't even be bothered to type about them any more?
> Massless does not save it from a black hole (which stops even light).
Light has mass. As do all the other sizes of photon.
p = mrel v
...except when they're resting but you're not going to escape a black hole while resting.
Methinks the self-confessed penchant for sniffing about other peeps' WiFi goes a long way to explaining it
Pretty sure you'll find "the lizard people" as we call them these days are still very much alive and thriving in their niche as grand overlords of our species.
Um, that'll be "twelve iridium ions" then.
What an egregious waste of letters.
What have you been sniffing? -------------->
Who's this Shirley you're talking about? Surely Shirley should have been surely.
I think you'll find that just as often applies when you are paying for it.
"I hope this is just an ordinary regression and it goes away."
I have a feeling that this has just become an extraordinary regression and will go away very, very quickly.
Westminster Weasels are cold blooded.
And when I hit the button on my iPhone 7 that says "remove virtual SIM card" then what association will my unlocked phone have with that operator?
...and there you have it AC: If your manufacturer walled up its garden as thoroughly as it and the networks would like to do, it would risk driving its revenue to the other manufacturer.
Time to form a standard shunning cartel then.
Right... "Go to the feature that changes your virtual SIM card, enter your password, scan a one-time QR code to change carriers, and then confirm on-screen that you want to change your carrier to the one you just scanned."
I'd rather swap a SIM.
This is getting more and more like the sales pitch that accompanied replacing (not augmenting - REPLACING) our simple BIOS protection jumpers with an _NSAKEY which allows unimpeded REMOTE pwnage by whomever it is who holds the private counterpart to said key.* Certainly more convenient forsomeone but a total clusterfuck for the rest of us.
GIVE ME BACK MY BIOS JUMPER
GET THE HELL AWAY FROM MY SIM CARDS
Also, why is there an AC scampering about this thread spewing crap about what a joyously salubrious innovation this is and giving the rest of us a single downvote? Is he supposed to be one of those "super influencers" I've read about?
*and everyone else who's bothered to unpick the crapto
I have no idea why I clicked on that link!!!
I think I might be able to answer that
"Isn't there some grammatical rules.."
I'm imagining Christmas eve becoming a seething throng of defeated looking shoppers accompanied by what sounds like the aftermath of a power-surge in a synthesizer factory. Each completely deaf to the incessant cries of their miracle phone.
