I have to say that I think it works quite nicely. I shall be trying this out in the office tomorrow to see if it can replace my current editor (joe).

We had to discount these for automating over 250 server instances because they run on Ruby.
Ruby uses a terrible amount of memory when its run for any length of time. You'll soon find your automation system is taking up to 1GB of your RAM.
A far better tool is Fabric which lets you execute everything over SSH from a single point.
If BT wanted to enforce this surely they could just repeat every request to newzbin2 services 50 (or more) times, basically turning their own users into a DDoS tool. Newzbin2 would then have to block BT users from using their service in order to keep running.
Blocking seems a bit stupid as it can be easily circumvented.
When I did my standard grades we programmed in Comal, this was around the year 2000 so schools couldn't yet afford huge numbers of pc's and we were still working on acorns.
I thought this was normal? Are you telling me that kids taking GCSEs don't actually write a single program? Thats f**ing shocking.
I ride a Honda CBF125 to and from work every day (about 43 miles in total). When driving carefully I get 160mpg, when driving aggressively (ha, its a 125) I get 115mpg. My GPZ gets me between 70 and 80mpg.
Where is the story here? These things are hardly revolutionary in terms of fuel usage.
First thing that came to mind would be a glass stick containing a pressurised gas with a certain thickness of glass. The stick would be tied onto the balloon and the plane. When the pressure outside the stick becomes too little, it will rupture, splitting the connection between the plane and the balloon and drop the plane.
Probably too fragile, but meh.
Is it just me or will they need to get permission from the owners of the websites, whose content they will be modifying?
From those forum posts it appears as though Phorm is also modifying data being sent back to the servers.
Will the website owners get a share of the revenues as they will only be seeing adverts if browsing the web, and they will only be browsing the web out of choice.
I don't think this will ever get out of the door, there will be law suits not only from users about their data being intercepted, but from companies who have their websites modified on the fly by Phorm.
BG cause he would never stoop to this.
