Cligg you should have added that all content is written in "Verla".( Not sure how to spell that word please read on to understand why)
For the unwashed masses : Verlan is a technique in which the french reverse all of the sylables in a word.
The word Verlan is actually the word " l'enver " in reverse = "len" + "ver" = "ver" + len" = "verlan" ( Yes they do change some of the spelling as well but it iis more of a verbal thing than a written one.
The word "l'enver " actualy means Reverse or Backwards.... All very clever really.

I think the problem lies in the fact that we really do not need smartphones. They are esentially gadgets which have come from a Geeks Only status to a General Public status. SmartPhones are becoming passé.
We have essentially learned what they are usefull for and also what they are not usefull for. Their evolution is reaching it end.
Ones phone/smartphone was once a "symbolic icon" for who er are/who we pretend or aspire to be, today it's just another gadget in our pockets. It's all become very bling bling.....( talking mass market here, not professional usage)
We now need something radically different,....
We need a new form of entertainment, clothes that can talk, or bicycles that can sing, personal hologram devices( 3d Tamagotchis) . etc etc etc .
Now that we are at the end of the wave a new one will come along, for the life of me though I cannot imagine what it will be.
I would argue that it is necessary to give a new name after every three 0s. In the same manner as a we have in IT Mega, Giga, Terra, Peta, Exa etc ....
I think is easier to think in terms of "2.7 Giga" than it is to think about "two thousand seven hundred Megas", or worse, "two thousand seven hundred million bytes" or even worse "twenty one thousand six hundred million bits". And this is only at the Gigabyte level....( although that is roughly where the Billionaires are for the moment)
it is also far easier to write.....

If I had that kind of money I wouldn't stop at the car, i would want a copy of Stromberg's Lair in The Spy Who Loved Me..
These are cult symbols, they belonged to every young boys dream, James Bond was a "National Hero", he exemplified a world of fantasy, of the superich, he glorified the Spy world and even the bad guys, he was a ladies man. He was/is a living myth.. Why would we not want to be part of that..
Lighten up Jake, you are allowed to have some fun too.
One solution : ,Using a "friends" laptop, a USB version of Tails, connect to the Wifi of an internet café or Airport, encrypt your emails contents and then send using NymServers and Remailers.
Not a very comfortable solution but relatively secure. ( Don't use the same laptop or Internet cafe any more than twice in a year.)
<quote>It is that she would leave the conference thinking "Well that industry is clearly just a bunch of silly men obsessed with looking at women's bodies. Not for girls like me then. It kind of makes me feel uncomfortable." That is the tragedy. That's what *I* find offensive.</quote>
i would consider that as a purely "adult" frame of thought capable only from a mind mature enough to know what it was looking at. Not what I would expect from a pre-pubescent child, even one that was mentally capable of programming.
As far as I remember tech is usually very clean, or would you like to brand everyone with the Shit Stick because a pair of minor technies had some fun.
Nobody takes these kinds of things seriously, they are intentionally made to be funny and made to be a little tongue in cheek.
Pray tell us how you protect that same little innoncent sweet 9 year from the Sex, Bad Language, Violence , Politics and general disarray that can be found on the Web, Movies, Television, Newspapers, on her iPhone/Android, splattered everwhere in publicity......
That same little girl will soon discover that their are far more things to be worried about that looking at a pair of clothed breasts.......
You honestly want to be believe that taking a 9 year old girl to a tech conference will generate further interest in the tech field ? I am sure there are far more interesting things for 9 years olds to do than stand around bored shitless for hours waiting for an interesting field to crop up.
By the way the web has a very large percentage of hardcore/softcore pornography websites, written by the same techies..... You might want to consider that for later....
Think of the children, yeah right, don't take them to these kind of events. Whats next to much swearing in the football stands. Ballerinas whose clothing is too tight and show a little too much nipple at the ballet.
"We've listened, we value your partnership, and we are adjusting based on your feedback." = Bollocks
If they had listed to what was being asked / complained about / offered as advice then we would not have the product that we have today.
If they had listened we would be reading about how great W8 is, unfortunately this is not the case. W8 definately has some goods elements, it's just that they are overshadowed by the bad ones.
I get the impression that you actually believe that you live in a democratic society. The spooks have been doing it for years, this is certainely nothing new. ECHELON has been in use since around the 1960's, don't tell my you think they only spy on foreign nations.....
I do not agree with what the spooks are doing but I can understand why they might be doing it. They need to provide evidence/figures that prove they are doing something usefull....BIG DATA provides that evidence. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to put a little make-up around the stats...
I very much doubt that the real terrorists are using public networks anyway.... They know how to use encryption and TOR just like everyone else....
As I mentioned above , it's all about attitude.
Although I have lived in France for almost 20 years, I also have a typically broad Scots Accent, so it is easy to imagine that my French is heavilly "tainted".
The French can be extremely rude though , especially to impolite people, they do it amongst themselves all the time. Believe it or not the most French are normally very polite.
You mean you are surprised to learn that when living in a foreign country not everyone speaks "English".
I have lived in France for almost 20 years and I have never had that kind of problem as soon as they realise that you try and make an effort they usually lighten up and help you out. If you come across as the snotty Englishman expecteing everyone to speak English then you deserve what you get.
I think it is more about attitude than it is about competence.
Agreed, I had a Golf GTI at the time and my friend had the GT5, he could run rings around me. Far to powerfull in relation to its weight,road handlingm, chassis ( unless of course you know what you are doing which most don't)..... Roundabouts on a damp night in a GT5, oooooooohhhhhhhhh fuuuuuuuucccccckkkkkkkkk.....
Those that you the TOR are far more aware about computing than most people, It would be very surprising that those same people are infected by the various BOT malwares....
Those that are careful about hiding their identity or that keep a low profile are usually clever enough to keep their machines clean.....
BitTorrent rather than Botnet......is the likely cause
Personally I do not have a Linked-in account, as mentioned above it's like facebook for suits.
What I do get though are regular emails from people who have Linked-in accounts and that must have my email address in their address book. I hate the bastards.....
For me Linked-in is on par with those that sell little blue pills.
It depends on who you speak to.
In generale though, Blanc de Blancs is produced in the Champagne region. Blanc des blancs is a "champagne", that it to say that it is made in the Champagne region but it is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes. ( no black grapes involved in the process).
The terme Méthode Champenoise would therefore probably be more correct than Méthode Traditionelle.
Soemthing which I consider extremely import is the tactility of a keyboard. Keys that have no depth of travel, are too hard, too soft etc soon lose their desirability.
I understand these things from a portability point of view but from a practical, ergonomic point of view it changes the ball game. Latops are good but heavy/large....... Tablets are OK but it is difficult to do real work for any lenght of time.
Maybe what we need is an inflatable PC.....
I'm not a Mac owner or user so I don't have access to a Mac and I have no familiarity with coding/decoding tools but that debugger looks quite nice. In my time, oh so many years ago, I used Softice, which undoubtedly some of you know.
That's the first time that I have seen any reverse engineering for quite some years and it beings back some nice memories. All nighters trying to determine where program logic could be "modified" ever so slightly for a variety of reasons ;-) ;-) ;-)
I don't understand this either, this bracelet only generates One Password for everthing or does it generate different passwords for different programs. How is the username catered for , or multiple accounts , or password changes, or forgotten passwords, or hacked passwords etc....
I'd say that the first mistake was keeping all your emails stored in the manner and I wouldn't expect my telephone to be capable of dealing with multi nested folders of anything. ( 2 or 3 levels is fine anything more becomes a pain in the arse because of the scrolling and selecting that is required). There comes a time when the nesting becomes so deep that it becomes difficult to extract anything easilly anyway.
I would say that you are trying to use the wrong tool to accomplish the task.
