And the spies are crawling from the woodwork like Lice on a damp afternoon!

Talk about using all avenues and protesting too much!
Why didn't he just man-up, meet with the team accusing him on safe ground, and save everyone a helluva lotta bother?
I hope this is the end of this noisemaker but I doubt it is!
Mr Fry would wibble on incessantly for hours on the what's why's and wherefore's! As I've done a fair bit of technology assessment/ advising to VC's that'd be one startup I'd skip attending and funding meeting!
To air is human but to really fuck things up is a oft overused phrase.
You don't take down a couple hundred thousand users without either being hit by a DDOS or an upgrade gone wrong. No one could be so cheap as to have a SPOF or could they?
Perhaps, BT couldn't get through to the scummy helpLESS lines in OpenReach to get help? That'd be fitting karma!
Ole Teflon will make lotsa noise in the press about what a hard job it is then nothing will change. Repeat cycle, spin, rinse, repeat cycle.
I bought a new iMac 21" in September from apple.com/uk (their UK store!) and it came with a USA keyboard, and NO option to get a UK one.
That'd be a first -- I'm sick and tired of Apple not getting the fact that not all of the world likes to touch a Yankee only keyboard.
Every damn new Mac comes with a USA keyboard -- epic fail! I have to spend at least 10 mins remapping all the keys!
For those brave enough, have a follow of the Twitter account @InternetOfShit.
That'll turn anyone into a permanent luddite living in a cave in NW Scotland forever!
They routinely crash PCs with bad updates, or cause lock-ups due to their poor Q/A. So to seriously suggest a kill switch seems counterintuitive as their own product is more than capable of doing just that already!
There's no real surprise in this decision! Companies have Acceptable Use Rules for a reason and clearly the guy felt he was above that rule.
Add in the fact for more than 10 years now, Chat sessions in a corporate environment are likely in many companies to be logged, just as email is for compliance &/or regulatory reasons.
He should not be moaning for sympathy -- which BTW is between shite and syphilus in the O.E.D. !
To test out Hawking's new theory as he clearly is smarter than everyone!
Holding book on which banks get pwned first for still running IE6 and IE7 although I know a UK bank with instances of IE5 still in place!
I've just done the survey.
It has too much consultant-speak and should simply say "drinking whilst pregnant may injure, deform, or destroy your unborn child". Or it should say "drinking too much may damage necessary organs, cause you to injure yourself" or "drinking too much in one session will cause you to have spawn just like yourself"!
The instructions to the pubic are filled with thousands of words when 10-20 would suffice!
You'd have taken aim at Adobe Flash and the scourge of the interweb it truly is!
The last 3 Mac updates are utter butt roll leftovers of non-working code. It's gotten so bad we've had to keep a spare DMG around our home to clean up when a new turd arrives.
How could someone so fuck up a working product..??
Did that, we've purged Flash is Trash from ALL computers in our family. And extended family. And closest friends.
Adobe should have their doors forcibly closed for perpetuating Flash!
I've got a long standing mess with Aegon where they've LOST my home address yet cheerfully accepted monthly Pension contributions that I think I've finally fixed.
The proof you may ask?
Today I received a form from Aegon demanding all the stuff I've already provided 7 years of proof for, AND a "fill in your NiNo here" boxes for it to go into.
Having no choice as I want to get 15 years of Pension moved to another company I've had to comply. Hopefully they don't fuck up management and securing my personal data!
I once went to a upscale taqueria in Mexico City with some co-workers whilst working there. The meat was grey, but tasty and with a few beers, seemed ok.
They asked me on the way back to the office how I liked DOG Tacos? Perhaps a nice Dog Pud Thai would be more to the King's liking?
The lack of modernisation coupled with the malware and lack of security updates mean to many it is flushed from their $home, $work, and $life.
Shame, they fscked things up so badly they handed the market to Chrome.
If you're really wanting to make some money Adobe, FLUSH Flash and see customers return.
The Ebola virus of network security nightmares ='s I won't spend a pence with you until you do.
That MSFT were telling all SW developers was the revenue to be made supporting $harepoint. Glad that wasn't bullshit then SteveO.
Oh gee what a surprise -- I can't get into email for the company I'm contracting to due to MSFT. I've been trying to get into their email for 2 hours with little luck, even tried reboots, different browsers.
I guess I'll go remove the caulk in my shower that's leaking then.
In the name of all things Holy, PLEASE,
Get your Ebola virus of an app off of the Internet once and for all!
FF, pah humbug. Rubbish SW.
Deleted from all our systems for FF's owners sins.
End of transmission.
FFS -- a plug to turn something off? W. T. F. ...?
It'll all end in VERY expensive epic fail when all the plugs are behind furniture.
Oh well, they'll never make a UK equivalent Americans never go overseas or over the border anyway!
You forgot the Ebola Virus of MSFT OS's: Windows for Workgroups which routinely barfed all over the network. WfW was short for "we ain't got a fucking clue about networks, but we're the Borg and damnit, you better do as we say".
WfW was a great believer in networks should all be set to a netmask of 255.0.0.0, or in other terms, it only worked in a Bridged network...
Police abusing their power?
By brights lights and shiny objects.
When consumed with a Bud or two...
Sorry but anyone who believes Teflon Theresa May be sectioned at no notice!
The Goon Squadies would rather bugger the likes of you and me for small mistakes by driving a Eurostar train up our backsides than actually do something that could grab the real criminals.
I've just finished the end of a 4 year nightmare with them for a £202 mistake. End result was a £9,100 fine, yet they won't get off their arses and go after YodaPhone, Amazon (hint: they're in Dumfermline Scotland HMRC) or others.
Volvo needs to fix their self-destructing, "That'll be £5,500 please" gearboxes before worrying about not killing Skippy! Volvo's Epicfail answer is "TADTS" which is far from good enough!
This burned us so badly on a 2010 V50 a temporary fix was done and we dumped the car.
Who the "£$%^ are they listening who are smoking G*d knows what?
NATS has proven itself as expensive and flaky with shiny new things as The Met.
I can see this decision will end in hours of hand wringling whilst consultants make gazillions!
If you've actually bought something from these c-nuts? I bought some stop smoking thingies from them. So are my personal details out in the wild, and if so what's my reward?
Seems to me a years free Experian would be a good start!
No Carly, you cannot make the other Presidential debaters wear those!
Would someone PLEASE PUT Adobe out of our misery?
This smells worse than 5yr old toe or navel cheese and just goes to show why France is where all the illegals should be locked *into*.
Sacre Bleu what idiots they are! Cloud Cuckoo land is ringing!
Flash is the real hole into hell from them and must be cancelled as a product now and put out of our misery.
They should get a clue that the BROWSERS are now blocking it and shitcan it now!
Flash is Trash - friends don't let friends have Flash on their computers!
"Flash is Trash" has been the slogan of many for 10 years yet Auntie desperately clinged onto the Ebola Virus of animation. One would have to think Auntie had a sweetheart deal with the vendor or something, the way they've clinged onto clunker technology.
Then it was, *gasp*, Air which was like a root canal done via your back passage with no nitrous oxide. Flaky, bug ridden, constantly crashing bag of bits.
Auntie needs to have a lot of their Techies sacked and get Standards knowledgeable programmers onboard before the firm is so irrelevant.
We saw Bill Bailey perform live last week in Maidenhead - he's already on tour.
Sadly he used some recycled bits and is still working out what might be funny. We were a bit disappointed having seen him quite a fe times.
Are so full of crap it is truly sickening. They're almost the lowest form of life, or is that Solicitors & Accountants? It is so hard to tell!
In the name of things deserving to DIE DIE DIE, please fucking kill off Adobe Flash whilst you're at it South Korea.
Extra Kim Yum Yum points if you do!
For the love of all things holy, even MSFT killed off insecure rubbish (although consumers/companies ignored them).
Flash is the Ebola Virus of the Internet!
As someone who has sat, pounding my head onto a spike for hours with vCD I can assure you that ANYTHING (including a root canal w/o anaesthetic done from my back passage) would be a welcome break. vCD in my experience is a kludgy, browser malviolent application that also boasts Java as one of its sins. Add to it vCloud Air in the mix and misadventures explode logarithmicly for the amount of inconsistency and pain one must endure.
I wish anyone entering this market well -- it desperately needs better tools.
EU regulators cower in fear over latest Google search extensions
Go to electronics store.
Buy Freesat box.
Point at appropriate satellite.
Job well done.
I used to commute from Sydney to Melbourne regularly to visit customers. I never paid, and did so having learned it was only AU$10 fine (£4-5) if you got caught. Given there were never any ticket checkers, the easy part was to just jump off at a stop if you saw them getting on.
Melbournians are well versed in this game -- only tourists and overseas visitors and mugs pay on their system.
add Chicken Fried Steak, Hash Browns and 2 Eggs scrambled and even your WORST Tequila hangover will be gone!
When I get to go to Texas I look forward to Biscuits & Gravy. My English wife says it looks like baby puke on scones, but who gives a fsck!
It's been shitting all over itself for the last 3 days in Area 31 where we live, hiccup, burp, fart, puke then fine for a while the rinse & repeat cycle. Makes working from home awfully fucking hard.
Must go back to garden and trim flowers !!
