seems like a reasonable response all round from them.
"Apple sets a high bar."
Oh my. Everyone in the office turned to stare at me after I burst out laughing.
""breaking the law if they attempt to take photos of any GCHQ staff"
Sorry my irony meter just exploded
You must realise you have NO AUTOMATIC RIGHT TO BE PAID FOR ANYTHING EVER. If you think you can scam people into giving you money for a pretty picture or a nice tune then gratz, carry on, don't mention what a racket you are running.
But you must, must, MUST realise that it is exactly that: a scam. You must be honest with yourselves. You are con artists. You produce nothing. You cannot eat a picture. You cannot take shelter in a house.
Take a look a the current penchant for survivalist games. You must find Food! Warmth! At no point are you encouraged to develop a system for monetising humming or finger painting.
So please, whinge all you like, but deep down, in the depth of your hearts, please, please, keep close to yourselves that you are worthless scum.
I could not be more happy...
...than to be told that the banks are running reliable, thoroughly specified and tested, rock solid zSeries and iSeries platforms running CICS and COBOL and RPG.
These things WORKED. A lot of effort was put in by well qualified and intelligent people.
Farming things to India to be poorly coded in .net from non-existent designs and then implementing without exhaustive testing DOES NOT WORK.
Just because it doesn't have Cloud written on the side does not mean you should replace it.
Yes, and the call center staff HATED the crappy, slow web based replacement which was significantly worse than the green screen application. The company was Aviva, the new system was "N200" meaning "Next 200 Years". It was replaced the next year by N201.
"This ruling does not give the all-clear for people or organisations to have content removed from the web simply because they find it inconvenient"
She must realise that this is exactly what it has done?
"blame some junior person"
I am sure everyone understands that when companies pin the blame on "some junior person", said person was only doing exactly what they had been told.
Perhaps 3D printing will allow designs to be perfected, openly shared and everyone to benefit.
But I doubt it.
well there are enough of those in one oxygen atom to make 8 hydrogen atoms via fission you would have thought. but that isn't about chemical bonds, and all of the "research" seems to be crap anyway. so yeah sure, transmogrify away.
These requests are very important.
They are not asked because the Requester believes an asteroid impact is likely.
They are asked because councils pissing money away on nonsense and then hiding it in the accounts is VERY likely.
And the only way to find out is to ask specifically in a FOI request. Otherwise the £14M spent on zombie rodent prevention, with fact finding trips to the Caribbean, will go down as Miscellaneous Pest Control.
They totally deserve each other. Now, which are the bigger set of scum sucking crooks?
You shouldn't call him "Persson" like that. Its not a surname and its rude.
Re: Things aint what they used to be, and that's for sure.
Is this some auto-generated spam from a bot? It seems to be lots of random fragments of sentences pasted together.
downvoted for stating fact. nice.
This is bollocks anyway
As it has already been proven in court that pictures of premier league football are NOT copyrightable.
more, google it.
Only the Logos are copyrightable. A camera phone recording will not show logos, so the pictures are not copyright.
Premier League is very, very well aware of this. But they'd rather put out these lies and hope people believe them.
These estimates are very low. I would say more like 80%+ are bots/unused/spam accounts.
I have this thing called a PC...
...it plays all of this and more, as well as all the best games. And its upgradable.
Re: A certain...
You're a fool. You should have whitelisted your mac and turned it off for everyone else.
Re: I have a bad feeling about this...
I don't know... a unit of a digital currency is a Unique Identifier. With Bitcoins these are mined, but a central bank could just assign them out, 1, 2, 3 etc. All they need is a record of who possesses which ID (like Bitcoin but I assume not exploitable by a 51% power possessing member, ahem) and an API for transferring these. We could stamp pound coins with a GUID and try it ourselves perhaps.
Flaws? A man-in-the-middle attack on the connection between bank and customer could be easily done you would think. Hack the server, all your 'Ecu's are belong to us? Blackout really cripples economy?
So I guess the important question is will be a "Digital Currency" ( a true currency controlled and underwritten by the central bank but paper-/coin-less in some way ) or a "Digital Commodity" like Bitcoin ( a scarce and hard to create mathematical construct with a finite limit that can be directly traded but with no underwriting ).
"will throw lousy old Java into the abyss"
Can you not phrase your headline in a slightly more accurate way? This is related to buggy ActiveX controls. Its not about Java. Java is the USEFUL thing that this ActiveX control provides, and as it is so USEFUL and EXCELLENT that it is ubiquitous enough for the ActiveX control to be worth attacking. If you make such silly statements then uneducated people like david12 above will start parroting what you are saying.
how is recruiting the guy behind RAC in any way a remotely good thing?
I remember when this software took down the groceries database of a major uk supermarket. decided to write one datatype to wrong column. then RAC propagated this to all nodes. goodbye data. cue whole IT department on phone to customers manually processing orders. fun times.
wow. so you need DR. thanks for that.
i'll let the 1960s know you have caught up with their ideas.
better would have been to demand a court order for each and every one.
giving kids crapple products is child abuse
Re: ICO ?
PCI isn't a regulation or from the FSA. Its an industry "standard" designed to allow transfer of blame away from the card providers.
so are they dropping CloudFoundry?
Didn't even notice...
..since the woeful eye-bleeding update a few months ago I don't use it anymore.
Re: "Also, it had to be sufficiently simple for the German team’s staff to use without SAP support"
HaHaHaHANA? Its must have been damn slow then. And crashed a lot. Very slow and unstable under load, and my instance is deployed by SAP, run by SAP, in SAP network. So it ain't me.
Re: you usually aren't covered
I see you have experienced insurance before.
"But what people fail to realise is that it is true of *any* safe"
This is true of all locks, alarms systems and indeed all security up to and including Quantum Keys based methods.
Have you worked with any Orange devs? They have serious issues finding arse with both hands.
The tone of this piece seems to suggest that this is somehow a good thing
Is there an anti-higgs then?
Re: Resiliency Model
This has nothing to do with SPARC
Yawn. Bayesian classification. Easy peesy lemon squeezy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayesian_inference
"distributed implementation of stochastic gradient descent" i.e. its a small cluster of boxes running a bayesian algorithm.
Yes this sucks but its the app writers fault not google, they request ludicrous permissions for their apps.
that's a "sunset" clause, not a "poison pill" clause
being switched to sky is functionally equivalent to turning it off. So ASA got it wrong here.
The glass is just a product. its not crapple exclusive.
"harder than gorilla glass" is not much of an accolade. That shit could be scratched by an angry jelly baby.
high performance is gonna need a few more cores than that. try 96 per box and you might be getting there.
Re: Here come the lawsuits.
Nah I will just call them evil fuckers who are doing this bugging solely to line their own pockets. Drives me totally mad that they get billions every year with no accountability that they then use to further enrich themselves and their friends. And then they say "Its for your own good! There are scary people!" Bullshit.
Don't learn the nubs.
Surely this is then precedent for MS to take over every single TLD that ever had a subdomain containing any trademark of theirs?
How exactly do they appoint judges over there in crazyland anyway? Raffle at church on sunday?
"you don't have a spreadsheet at home with all your DVDs and CDs"
My wife does...
"who wouldn't allow anyone to actually do anything with IT beyond what was on the desktop"
Seems very sensible frankly.
