Blatant secure web app secure coding training
If you do a quick google for "ASP.NET PCI DSS training", give the top-listed company a call (starts with J) and ask for Tom, I'd be glad to help....We do Java, and PHP-flavoured secure coding training too, focusing heavily on best practices, and can be tailored for on-site delivery too.
Don't forget to ask for Tom, and mention El Reg while you're at it and I'll bung you a 5% discount off public course prices.
Blatant plug over...you may get back to spluttering over your morning coffee now :-)
They're wasting a gig of RAM if they're going to stick with a 32bit OS. I suppose they could be going for XP 64, but I'm guessing penguins are likely to have better driver support than that beleagured old platform.
If you haven't already, go out and buy Charles Stross' Toast, and/or Accelerando, for some well-informed and thought-provoking ideas on where all this stuff is going. Throroughly enjoyable sci-fi written by a geek, for geeks. This message has been brought to you by the Charles Stross Marketing Board.
Mark - worry not about Microsoft's coffers
It runs a variant of Fedora Linux, isn't it.
Bunch of old horse cock if those screens from the new dashboard are to be believed.
Can anyone say "I want to be a Wii"?
Stick your avatars up your collective fudge tunnels, XBL!
Or alternatively, give me a choice as to whether I want to fuck up my xbox or not.
I'd be happier
if my license fee was spent on turning the BBC into "The Family Guy and Futurama Channel". No need for any of that other nonsense they piss my money up the wall on.
Please don't get me started on the London Olympics.
Ben: Oh, what you will have done is, when it flashed up on your screen, "Do you want to watch Bangkok Chick-boys?" you must have pressed the button that said "yes".
Alan: Yeah, well, as I say, it's very confusing.
Nice desktop dave lawless, but
you might have wanted to hide the shemale videos folder before doing the screencap.
I'm in two minds, as (a) I'm lazy...but (b) I'm a tightarse. If I could be bothered, it really wouldn't be too hard to use Sky+ to record the shows I like from my standard Sky subscription, stream the lot to a DVD-recorder, then use a ripper to grab it all and spurt it into my favourite handheld.
makes me wonder
if my trip-hop band, the universal constructors, can make some fast bucks out of our URL one day... www.universalconstructors.com ...where free mp3s of our tunes abound!
...and for the same price or less...
...you could get a (not so old) 2nd-hand lappy or slimline PC box with the relevant video-outs and bung a TV-friendly OS on it (and get yourself a generic remote of some kind too I should have thought) ...Share a few folders over your network, perhaps run remote desktop, set up myth, and - ah okay, it's not particularly plug and play, but probably a more involved and pleasing method for a lot of El Reg readers :-)
High Definition Shite
I'm wracking my brains trying to think of any good films that have come out recently that warrant me spending money on hi-def.
I canceled my Amazon DVD Rental after about 3 months because I'd watched everything I wanted to see. Am I alone in my world-weary cynicism, or do other people also feel that there's bugger-all that's worth watching coming out of Hollywood (or heaven's above, UK cinematography)?
Gibson giving itself a bad name? Shirley not!
The penguin, because I finally got compiz working on my x1950...Go me.
*starts to turn blue*
Foolish of me to hold my breath. Tonight I am going to promote (X)Ubuntu from its current position of "Saviour of Old Computer Hardware", to "Wine Gaming Platform Experiment on my Main PC".
Time to reach for Acronis and buckle up. Vista Ultimate 64, kindly shuffle over a bit, you're about to get dual-booted.
80 The Strand
...Is where Dorling Kindersley / Penguin (a Pearson group subsidiary) are now housed. Sadly, I got the boot (along with the rest of the multimedia division) just before they moved there. This icon almost looks like a dead penguin.
...El Reg hasn't just regurgitated a press release has it? For shame!
If only I could do something about my SME's document searching requirements...that doesn't impact upon firewall security ...Any ideas? Anyone?
USB in-car grooviness
My H&B car stereo has USB and SD-RAM slots in it. Best £80 I ever spent. Something tells me that they mightn't have paid any licensing fees for the mp3 codecs though - they don't seem to make them any more.
That's neither here nor there though. Record companies can go stick their DRM-infested USB sticks up their A&Rs.
By the way, get your free, unshackled ambient dub and trip-hop electronica mp3s at http://www.universalconstructors.com :-)
Wonder how long it will take
...for MS to get El Reg to get an article up about the wonders of Silverlight
Talking of which, if you want some really good Silverlight training, google "JB International", give them a call, and ask for Tom ;-)
Counting the seconds till my shameless plug gets pulled...
