... Too easy.
GPS off ... check
Wifi off... check
Bluetooth off... check
NFC off... check
data plan, non-existent... check
cell tower triangulation... bugger.

If you know my password, its not secure. If you know a salted hash of my password, I smile upon you.
Is that you, mom?
I thought Nu was STRAAT (https://icannwiki.com/.inc) who buy up hotel domains?

And then something will bypass that, and so the game continues
Ask the residents of Hull if they preferred Kingston Telecom to BT.
Maybe they're using the medieval Latin version, and stealing their tents. That would be kinda awesome.
I would actually welcome cell phones in the cinema, IF (and only if) they have cell-free showings which are actively 'policed'. that way the self-important millennial with the phone can legitimately be told to turn it off, and not get aggravation in response.
Really needs a second series.
Don't need a new internet. Just put adverts on a new tld (.advertising) and enforce metadata for sizing. Then, if you opt out of advertising, your pages are still the same size. Then browsers can flag if your advertising is on/off for the purposes of paywall checks for those websites that use a freemium model.
Its a function of getting older. You wake up one day, look at the clutter on the desk, and grab a bin bag. Then you realise you're 40, and haven't done a 3-day coding stint in 20 years. As you wipe the sad glass panel with a cloth (accidentally smearing it worse with your tears) you vow to get a white-oak desk (possibly with Tuscan legs) to match your furniture.
I work in such an environment, and it can work very well. DevOps thrives where your staff is experienced, multi-disciplined and professional. You don't need to be a DBA to maintain a SQL system, or promote a deployment through environments, but you do have to know when you need your DBA, or when to allocate resource from your most experienced server admin. And that distinction is where DevOps can fall down if you sacrifice any of the trinity (experience, knowledge, professionalism). There's a massive difference between having a professional senior developer supporting a live deployment, and a junior cowboy developing in production.
So... if you map the power button to 'hibernate', all your troubles go away?
Took the credit for the working bits, delegated blame to the BAs. Made a PM cry once. Swapped the BAs and PMs around by calling them both Scrum Masters and pretended to understand ITIL while calling everything AGILE. Sacked half the ops team and made the developers do their job too, which worked for a while as they were then able to code in production, like it was the Wild West. I just called it DevOps. Once QA complaints reached high decibels, I sacked the QA resources and offshored their function to three countries in the same timezone, while pretending we had follow-the-sun by making one team work night shifts, then took a job at a competitor before it all blew up underneath me, with glowing references. Repeat.
So this is Boris' plan to solve the London housing crisis?
I wonder how bad it would be if his actual evil twin performs another robbery in the next couple of years... Proving he wasn't lying, just strange. LifeTime would have an awesome TV movie on their hands.
My pro tip, for what its worth, is to browse within a vm that has its hard drive set to refresh on reboot. I have IE11 (I do a lot of web testing with various browsers) within VM workstation set up that way, and with Unity switched on can access IE as if its part of my desktop. If I get hit by a virus, a reboot will kill it. It has no permissions to my real desktop at all, (runs in a seperate virtual network, seperate user account.) Brought this method of working across from my VM Fusion days on my mac, and am happy with the extra layer of security it provides.
We had cartridge games on the C64. We just hardly used them because we all had an Action Replay cartridge for cheating on tape games that we used Action Replay to clone onto a floppy...
If they capture themselves coding the script, might even be worth hiring them. (head explodes from too much meta)
Which is that same thing as saying not to use any cloud, co location hosting, or possibly even the internet.
Github is over SSL, and is stored encrypted at the remote end.
If the story had been Dropbox spewed man's financial credentials in bad app update, the story would be focused on the tool and service, not how stupid the user was for using the service. The user had an expectation of security AND privacy.
A private github *should be* no different to using any 3rd party cloud provider.
Because its a *private* repository he was supposed to be uploading to. In private repositories we do things like store keys and binaries because we abuse Github for non-build purposes, like the ability to git pull remotely and have a complete working copy of our code. Despite Github not being a backup service, our own private repositories where we work contain private keys, license files, database backups, all sorts of dll binaries. Convenience, ne? Until something like this happens.
Totally agree. The idea of a gaming machine that I can still use as a commuting device appeals to me.
We do, now.
"How in hell is Microsoft not spotting these? I'm rolling back."
Looking at the remaining data, I have no problem with them retaining 90% of the data. Height, age, weight, etc. I can see how that would be useful for firmographics. I just don't know why they need to keep the town, longitude and latitude which can identify a person. (Especially in a small town.) And this is why they are culpable.
Maybe the accent was fixed with a 3d printer? ;p
Its one thing if it makes it slightly gibberish, but another if the accent changes the meaning to "Welcome to Penisland, Population: You." So I'll give the councillor the obligatory hat doff on this one and let it slide.
it IS a hassle (and a con) that you have to use Pay As You Go on a bus to get to a tube station to activate the Weekly ticket that should have covered you for the bus journey. And you cant claim that back.
But only in this incidence.
This is true, but a separation of the routing information and payload would be beneficial. For instance, assume the entire payload was deeply encrypted, adding a tag to say the payload contained encrypted video traffic would allow for as much information as an ISP should need to know for rate limiting, without having to deep packet inspect every last byte.
As an application developer, I want the protocol to do all the heavy lifting. I don't want to have to code a lot of stuff into my app that shouldn't have to be there, and potentially get it wrong. I just want to be able to either create a connection, or receive a connection, and know that what I pass down that pipe will get there in a fast and secure fashion. Today, I find myself using API after API; MSMQ, signalR, IOCP->ImmutableStack, because the heavy lifting is bubbled up to the application layer. But its not like my requirements are fundamentally different to 99.9% of everyone else doing TCP development, who just need to get the data to get from A to B, or A to Many. If this means losing the 'value add' of rate-limiting protocol-massaging that my ISP believes is 'helping me', then so be it.
Some days I wish we could just have 802.11zz - Use ALL the spectrum (yes, all of it) for a single world network. And then run everything on top of that network. No more not-spots. We could call it Skynet...
I would pay to watch Jeremy Clarkson test Windows 10.
Well, we do have a Clegg who needs a job.
... unless you charge for copies.
Am I the only one who giggles at trump because its a colloquialism for fart?
In some ways they share a lot in common, but the Ant-Man is a better popcorn movie. I disagree with most of the reviewer's commentary; I liked Paul Rudd's direction. I had issues with the science. (When you're small, you have the same density as when you're big... so why can I carry a tank in my pocket again?) But otherwise it was amusing fluff in line with Guardians of the Galaxy.
Can you claim copyright infringement if someone repeats a line from a public Github?
This would not actually surprise me! :>
I'm just embarrassed those arrested called themselves hackers; they didn't go to a hacking-orientated website via an anonymising VPN service (iPredator, etc.). This is a bit like the London Met hiking the crimes-solved numbers by fining speeding drivers on the A40.
All of us.
I walked through Kings Cross 4 minutes before the bomb, and got to work on the Macmillan helpdesk on Crinan street. It was just me, and the white-haired security guard. As an hour went by, and nobody turned up, reports of 'electrical surges' on the tubes came in, I joined the security guy at the front desk and scanned BBC news on the old PC. The news slowly changed, and we got more worried. We pulled out the dusty tome of 'what to do in an emergency' and started handing out orange juice to the three others who'd stumbled in by that time. Then the directive to 'go home' came through and we made our way on foot to London Bridge through the gauntlet of police waving us towards zone 2. That was my memory of the bombing, and a chapter of my life that got dusty right up until this morning when I got stuck at Aldgate waiting for the memorial to end, so I could finish my commute. I don't believe we do compare what happened here to 9/11. If you visit new York, the whole city feels defined by the attack. For London, its just another bad episode to be momentarily acknowledged, and then moved on from.
If the Greek government had taken the 1.6bn repayment and bought stocks, then announced they would actually pay up the 1.6bn after all today, they'd have made enough to pay off the whole 240bn debt. Just saying.
The dream of Open Source endures!
This. The lack of urgency is just that; total apathy to upgrade. The PM attitude is: "Most business boxes are not externally facing. They do not need the constant security arms-race upgrading. They do their job, and they work. And unless there's a damned good reason to break something that just works, you don't do it because there's a penalty. Nobody wants overhead (testing, regression, pilot) and all the hassles unless you tack on a separate project for new functionality, and there's rarely any internal project worth doing a system upheaval over." That's why the Code Red virus years ago was such a big deal, it hit us inside the firewall. But we didn't learn from that, we just treated it as an isolated incident, and hey, at least now we have whole-machine backups in our shiny virtual environments. If the quake hits, we can roll back to yesterday, etc. I don't like it, but I find it hard to come up with the business case at the same time.
Northwest, and the only wild Penguins in the Northern Hemisphere would be endangered. (Little known fact; there are penguins on the Northern tip of Isabella island, and that's in the Northern hemisphere.)
> Perhaps google employees should start spending less time pratting around
Completely disagree. This is one of the few areas I applaud Google for: Allowing developers to do fun things and research projects. You forget, doing this sort of thing is how a developer *learns*.
