I'm a user, but I also want a secure box. Any end point that allows a remote hacker into my box, I want a security workaround until a full fix is ready, and I accept that this may break utility until its the case. But this is because I'm a server admin first, which probably puts me in a subclass of user. But even so; any user who cares about the sanctity of their data probably agrees. This doesn't mean that the security patch is the final product, it means its the uncomfortable workaround. However, where I agree with Linus, is the same mindset shouldn't be applied to local userspace programs. Sure its annoying if one local user can gain extra priveleges and do damage, but that I can deal with.

And they will still store their keys unencrypted on Github.
Unless they're mandatory...
Several vendors only offer partnerships based on the number of MCPs within the partner company; Sitecore do this, for instance. We just have to treat it like technical debt. :(
> So do I, but I'm certainly not interest in talking to a shopping centre. I'm single, not crazy
My father noticed that if you gave the people who talk to themselves a Bluetooth earpiece, they become 'normal' again. Soon, the new normal will be everyone talking to themselves.
Strange, since Sitecore just announced the same partnership deal with Salesforce, which is Microsoft's CMS/Azure PaaS platform of choice. Almost makes it sound like you haven't researched anything for this article. Just saying. (At least in terms of your editorial spin of anti-MS) The only news here is Salesforce is making deals with cloud providers. (Dreamforce 2017 announcement)
> He asked for clearance to sell 4,000 shares worth about $585,000 on July 28, a day before the hack was uncovered
What timezone was the email server recording the clearance?

The fact that'd the world would believe its true shows its *already* the end of the world.
Broken by design then.
Most large clients use MiddleBoxes as standard, because of disparate internal/external service hosting.
e.g. Imperva DoS protection -> App gateway -> Load balancer -> Reverse proxy -> Media/CMS.
And that's not even factoring CDN solutions.
Re: Geoblock is evil and dishonest
When HDCP is also really easily removed (e.g. iSolem 2 Way HDMI) for next-to-nothing, the inconvenience isn't worth the implementation.
Maplin is where I go...

As a sysadmin, the impact is far more severe than the 'shady hoodie' issue. We're an office in central London. In a managed building of many floors and other companies. This is *not unusual*. GDPR et al say we have to protect customer data. If there's a known, unpatched, easy exploit to our perimeter, then we have to do something. in this case, terminate wifi until further notice. (Even if further notice only ends up being a few days) Because our security just weakened from authentication/privilege escalation to bypass, to just privilege escalation. And that's a lot of unhappy pointy-hairs.
That makes no sense. You want deidentified data that can be reidentified *by the appropriate means* e.g. law enforcement identifying you from your IP address, but not the analytics processor.

Re: Broken Down Under
Actually, looking at a cached office blogs page on Google, and doing View Source... yes, its Wordpress. :)
Is it a 301 or a 302?
Never mind. Resolves from officeblogs.wpengine.com to jim.ns.cloudflare.com to 126.96.36.199. looks like a duff setting at Cloudflare
hehe, unplug the BNCs to take my PC home and the office network goes dark.
I miss the days of IPX/SPX games of Doom.
The article suggests economy of scale is the only reason Uber should take a chunk of the market. I thought it was because the app made it more convenient, and the GPS tracking made it (contentiously) more secure. If the travel cost was identical to the competition, I'd still rather take the option that gets me A to B with vehicle tracking and a low lead time. the competitive advantage is service offering, not pricing.
Will wait until the G5S+ hits, and see if I can try one in my hands in a shop before I buy, but sounds like what I'm after. Thank you all!
Can someone recommend an Android phone that has less crapware, a long battery life, and decent specs? I was waiting for the Note 8 but I want a phone that goes longer between charges.
The Facebook Advertising Demographics
...Are partially based on *location*
People move around. A person at college in another state is in two places, and counts twice, as far as location-based demographics is concerned. That's why Facebook's statement "number of factors, including Facebook user behaviors, user demographics, and *location data from devices*" is both truthful and easy to misinterpret.
Re: Outage or DNS ?
Full on outage. I use Verisign and Google open DNS and my Virgin service is like a jack in the box. Luckily I have a backup.
Because if you access the emails of a financial person, you can send fake emails that say things like:
"Please be aware that we are changing our invoicing details from XYZ to ABC as of 1st September."
And because your email looks similar to previously received, and because you knew the previous invoicing details (thanks to the emails you steal) then financial person will remit to your new invoice address.
That's just one way.
Why do most commenters instantly assume that pro-Brexit = Racist? Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there's an overlap. Maybe even a weighted overlap. But I know quite a lot of Brexiters who wanted to pull out for other reasons. One friend of mine just wanted fluctuations in forex to trade on, and another wants some sort of trade union with Canada... :)
I'm on the pro-Uber (from consumer perspective) side of the argument. The benefits over standard taxis are immense. Knowing who, when, where my taxi is (and sharing that information with family for safety sometimes) is what I want/need. I could wish the company itself was better, but I don't want the service broken. I want it fixed.
Re: Yes, please don't come to Hull
My experience of Hull, living on the Anlaby Road and working at BP Saltend Plant was:
1. My car window was smashed and my tax disc stolen
2. Armed robbery, purse taken
3. Tooth chipped on kerb when tackled to the floor by 3 men who stole my laptop case
4. Cars blaring horns when I stopped at red lights
5. Open drug dealing
6. Good trains
7. Halfway decent broadband
Re: Danny Kaye?

So systemd parses DNS correctly (Netflix had underscores in hostnames, not labels, which is forbidden) and people are blaming someone for following the RFCs because Netflix are special sparkle ponies?
When I threatened to leave, they let me keep AYCE One Plan for 18/month. They only restrict me to 8GB/month for tethered usage.

Re: "literally" "decimates"
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.

Re: A new internet needed, sooner rather than later.
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.
Re: My desk doesn't look like that!
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.
Re: A familiar smell
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?
Re: CIO response in a nutshell.
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?
Re: Any compassion?
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.
Re: Pro Tip
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...
