Nah it's dust, but it's dust with a boot print with the words

> Walchman's book 'Hut Six...' is already $999+
Given the interest there is now about Bletchley Park I'm sure it must make sense to re-print this book. Or is that still banned?
Besides if they re-printed it I could have a copy (or two).
> Veagan eating HIPPIES
I never realised that hippies were allowed to eat vegans.
Suppose they have to eat something.
But cats don't like to get too hot, OK so it's been a few years since I looked at the figures but to get cats to last longer than a tank of fuel the engine needs to run a touch richer than the peak for power production. I can't remember the changes it foisted on us, but the stoichiometric ratio was buggered around with. Not running quite so hot results in less NOx.
I can't speak for most people but I've always tended to expect to upgrade storage on phones (and laptops) at least once during the life of the device, Same with the kids, they fill their SD-Cards, it's cheap to buy a new one. Since outside of the Apple world the price of flash is in free fall when the phone is a year old you can usually buy an SD-Card of twice the capacity and at half the price, this seems a no brainer. Switching from one phone to another is just too much shag and hassle.

When Global Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Simon Deadman walks into a court room do people say 'deadman walking' !!!!!!!
I understand the judge has bought a very natty black cap just for that very joke.
> No, France, you can't tell Google what to do outside of France.
Well the US likes to tell people outside the US what to do.
But where will this all end? Should China be able to say what political websites should be allowed? Should the Saudi's be allowed to outlaw French wine production.
This whole pile of smelly stuff needs resolving in an international arena, letting individual judges decide foreign policy isn't ever going to have a happy ending.
. I'm sure someone will want to know where they're used. Now if they could tag the woman...
It's very unPC to use women
Unstitching the labels and then resowing is going to be a mega pain in lots of materials.
I've noticed when buying undies for the other half that there is often a lot more material in the labels than there is in the garment. It quite spoils the whole effect. Trying to cut the stitching out without the whole garment collapsing would be nigh on impossible. Re-sowing the fine silk tulle or lace is quite beyond my basic needle work skills. It's so infuriating when you buy beautiful soft items of clothing for them to come totally spoilt by this label vandalism.
I think the answer to to have a legal requirement for the manufacture to offer a service where they'll remove these accursed things.
> Redistribute and you play by the GPL. Internal use only, you're good to go.
But they'll be intending to sell this, it won't just be an internal use thing.
> That's one of the reasons it's called "free software".
Except it isn't really free, it has a license and the license doesn't allow you to just borrow the interesting bits of code, see http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/03/05/vmware_sued_for_gpl_violation_by_linux_kernel_developer/ . Sure they can reverse engineer from the source code, which makes it much easier but they'd still need to work out how it all worked and then code their own design while being careful to ensure that what they wrote didn't fall foul of the license. Microsoft are very keen on SW licenses.
> means that systems are up and running amazingly quickly.
While this is true, for most server folk it is also not very relevant. Most Linux servers get rebooted once in a blue moon. Besides modern HW seems to spend so long in FW initialization that any time saved in the init -> login time window is lost in the time outside of the SW authors hands.
I appreciate the speed of RHEL7's (as an example) startup, but it's still slower than a few year old box booting RHEL6.
There are other ways to parallelize start up without flouting every tenant of Unix/Linux SW design (do one job, do it well) in particular and just good design principles in general (write down what you are trying to achieve before you work).
I wonder when they'll sue themselves.
I also wonder whether they'll finally tell themselves which patents they are infringing.
> Up North where they use special hardware to make sure of a nice creamy head,
It can be done with the wrist action too. I once amazed a visiting team by pulling pints of IPA alternately with heads and no heads depending on the accent of those that had said they wanted a pint of it. Prejudice I realise but I was quite happy to change the style on request.
I was just about to up vote you then you said
> (in straight pint glasses of course)
New flangled things.
Proper beer in a proper glass is what I say. None of these Noniks or conical things, Jugs are what we need!
Oh sod it, have an upvote anyway for highlighting a major problem.
Mind there is a bigger one, the reverse of the travesty you mention, I got given some beer glasses (not proper jugs) recently only to discover they are 500ml and so a pint won't fit!
> Well, we drink halves too. It's just that there's two of 'em in a pint glass simultaneously.
I remember a particularly drunken rugby club bar staff tour (look the players go on tour at Easter why shouldn't the bar staff OK) to Holland where we horrified to find beer being sold in 25cl glasses. But it was OK, I quickly worked out how to hold and 2 in each hand and be able to drink out of either of them, so it was all right.
making it illegal to put the kettle on in ad breaks on telly?
Does this remind anyone else of the cow from the TV version of the Restaurant at the end of the Universe?
> However, having a directly addressable IPv6 implementation doesn't mean everyone can access your computer. Firewalls can still block connections that you haven't initiated. It's still better to use IPv6, because the vast address space makes network management much, much easier.
While it is true that you can firewall IPv6 addresses to stop direct access, NAT (OK SNAT) has the feature of being client only by default. In a NAT environment it is difficult to actually make it possible for the BBI (Big Bad Internet) to gain access to your system, whereas in an IPv6 directly routed by screened by a firewall then you're dependent on the correct configuration of the FW, so it tends to be open by default with an option to guard the door.
There are lots of things which will work better by not having to fight with NAT, but security has been a very big unintended benefit to the world using NAT.
> Aye - I'd have also thought that the huge strength advantage would negate any technical disadvantage
It would probably allow the gorilla to throw a ball 10 times the weight of a human, but not necessarily with 10 times the speed of release.
Of course bowlers in cricket have to use a very inefficient action, they're not allowed to chuck the ball using all the joints to generate a whip like action.
That if they wanted to be all PC about it calling the lead character "Snow White" smacked of blatant racism.

The dumb thing is that they all look far to attractive to want to be my friend all of a sudden.
If they stopped using photos of models they'd probably get a better hit (on) rate :-)

Did an "All you can eat" buffet allow you to bring your family along to join in to?
Normally I'd be with you on an "unlimited Internet connection" but for a phone contract? All the phone can eat unlimited seems reasonable, tethering is like bringing you mates along too and expecting to feed them as well for the cost of one meal.
I've no idea how T Mobile in the US sells this service.
I've never once asked google to tell me who can tell me who sells anything.
I've asked google who sells things and they've answered.
If I requested that google give me search sites and they only listed their own then I'd be miffed. If I ask them who sells something and they only listed the names of other people who could tell me I'd also be miffed.
> ..and it's Apple wot's about to undun it as soon as Apple can get its shit together.
not if they can find a way to monetize letting companies push ads to your phone they won't. They sell it as being a feature.
> The sort of flirting that happened 40 years ago - especially at work - would now be likely to be deemed sexual harassment.
I'd certainly not be married to the love of my life for the last 25 years if she'd not been allowed to chat me up at work all those years ago.
See Unix engineers can have social skills and chat up people of the opposite gender.

then neither is Office where every new release is worse than all the previous ones and all the bits that you used to use have now either been hidden, broken or both.

Not when you spell as badly as I do
When I started travelling extensively and visiting offices in lots of parts of the world I found it was always worth taking a range of office suitable clothing with me. There seemed to be a tendency, especially in the US (but not only) to set the inside temperature to be the opposite of the outside one. Phoenix in summer? office would be 18, Chicago in winter? office likely to be at least 25.

Sure no one has ever found enough samples for a valid comparison.
This is an attempt to get away from SATA as that is part of the performance problem, it will never be able to offer good performance for SSDs.
Unlike Apple who'd never make anything in the US let alone in Germany.
Much better to pay someone else to make your stuff in the lowest cost production centre they can find.
Big film studios do deals with national broadcasters that limit, by country, where films can be broadcast. Vestager believes that such licensing agreements restrict access, limit cross-border competition, and are a form of anti-competitive price fixing.
Yes, that is exactly what they are designed to be.
How long it's taken till now for those in power to notice?
Doesn't just apply to films. How about all forms of electronically distributed entertainment. Wouldn't effect me personally, but how about sport?
This isn't a new issue. I remember back in the mid 70s going to a judo competition near Rotterdam and staying with a Dutch family and being surprised to see them watching tele in English, They said nearly everyone in their area had a big aerial point out west so they could see British tele as well as their own local stuff.
Doing away with geo blocking will lose some business a shed load of money. The question is whether their interests and their profits should be allowed to trump the law. Businesses are quick enough to extol the virtues of globalisation when it makes them cash, they don't tend to like the flip side though. But there are businesses that will lose out. Using sport as an example, I seem to remember there was a case involving the English Premier League and Greece, so using that. Its seems there are massive numbers of people in the UK who are prepared to spend a fortune for the coverage of this football, allowing Sky to pay the league a staggering amount of money. It would seem a reasonable bet that people in Greece won't be as desperate to see English clubs playing, so they get the coverage at a lower price since they are unlikely to fork over the same amount as English fans. But they do pay something, so this increases the total take for Sky and therefore the league. It's basic economics, but it would also seem to be totally illegal.
So it profit more important or the principal of free trade where it benefits consumers rather than just businesses. Of course consumers get to vote, but politicians seem to have given up thinking that voters are important, whereas companies exert influence in other ways, which politicians seem to find more important these days.
Oh look peoples irony filter seems to be on the blink again.
But not many people will be taking NOAA global surface temperature "records" very seriously any more, since they were recently massively amended to make the long-ago past "records" colder and the recent past and present "records" hotter.
But surely you have to make the data fit the theory.
Isn't that how these things are supposed to work?
How else do you get an increase in your research grant.
Now we just need to know the IP address of the scanning company and we can all download the film for free, now that we know where a legitimate copy is.
> In reality, I don't think he knowingly operated the device !!!
Maybe he was speaking out of his arse and voice dialed her.
This shouldn't be able to work.
You shouldn't be able to edit or replace sudoers unless you're root and edit the file with the correct user.
It works because the newgrp command is effectively root, that is the only way it can work.
The dynamic loader shouldn't be honouring such environment variables for SUID or SGID programs. It's a trivial test to make. If the programmer is not aware of things like that they should not be editing something as universally used as the dynamic loader.
> Lots of good stuff about SUID
Most *nix implementations makes sure that things aren't left open when using SUID, so for example LD_PRELOAD on HP-UX allows you control the loading of libraries, but not for SUID programs, where it's just ignored.
If you are going to need to make a hole in your security model, such as SUID, you have to make sure everything around it is guarded.
But no SUID and there can be no passwd command, no sudo or su etc...
But this hole is just plain dumb.
> Grow SmartPeople.
Sadly the stats show that for each SmartPeople you grow you get an average of 99 DumbPeople as a by product and since these can't be discarded some of them might end up owning a drone.
Thanks ToddR, I keep forgetting the need to spell the existence of irony in some of my posts for the benefit of readers with a humour impairment.
No, this is special warm ice, no good for Polar bears who only like good old fashioned cold ice to keep their seal suppers fresh.
Apple have been arguing exactly this point when it comes to their usage of standards essential patents. They've argued that they shouldn't have to pay a percentage figure as that means that for their expensive phones it means they need to pay more than the manufactures of cheap phones, which they argue isn't fair.
Surely they can't have it both ways in 2 different court cases, this must surely mean they are lying in at least 1 of the courts.
Let's just hope they never BSOD
Well you'd have thought it, but they have a history of having product launches only to find that someone has owned the trademark for years for what ever product they want to launch. Since they are repeat offenders here you'd think they'd learn. But no
No, when he says he wants to pre-order one with sp1 on, it'll be a pre-order, they haven't announced that one yet but we all know it'll be coming to try and sort out all the mayhem that gets brought forth as W10.
