Are you sure it was the Kremlin. Identity is a tricky thing nowadays.
Why would someone working at this level of 'software nastiness' install cracked/pirated MS Office software on their computer?
He always pays me with Bitcoins. You have to ask for them.
It's how they pronounce 'go for' in Belgium.
I remember docking at a space station in the Ross 128 system. It was a long time ago though.
I backed up my .mozilla profile and ran the 57.0 version as a stand-alone application. My AdBlock Plus, Flash and Video Download and the Download Helper extensions were still there but everything else is marked as 'legacy' and has been disabled.
I mostly use Palemoon nowadays and only keep Firefox (ESR) because it runs a free Zenmate VPN extension, but Opera has a free VPN if I need that.
How would it be if he wrote out a statement and pinned it to a notice board just inside the White House gates? This would of course be photographed and posted for the world to see.
"We follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)."
I thought that card payments on a website are dealt with by links to a third party 'approved' payments operator. Have I misunderstood this?
Don't they realise that if you're doing this sort of thing then you need to use burner phones or have face to face meetings in unobserved places?
Can your pecker do a marathon?
"The HTTPS connections are established using security certificates that appear to belong to antivirus maker Kaspersky Lab, allegedly."
Is this an example of the famous CIA humour?
You can tell by the way I use my walk?
I've just watched my first episode of Happy Tree Friends on YouTube. Thank you :)
It's in the privacy of your home among likeminded consenting adults. Does that make it ok?
I'd describe Dorset as being on the south coast or slightly south west.
"... WebUSB API can be used by a web page to interact with a USB device (or USB device driver) from user space ..."
How can I block it?!
"They then posted that they were looking for a job if anyone was hiring."
Or improvisational comedy?
That's only if you accidentally drink some of the sediment, as I once found out.
We will look after you. Don't worry your pretty little heads.
“Going cloud native is by far the most secure way of working,”
Very reassuring. Compared to what?
Is there a difference between astro-eggheads and astro-boffins? Do they work in different areas of sudy or something?
Her Maj's private assets are estimated to be about £500m so it's hardly surprising that she had £10m tucked away there. When you have that much, you tell your people to split it up and put it in sensible places for you. (So I assume. I'll never have anything like that 'problem'.)
A world where Japan wins first prize for a premium quality whisky.
Oh, it's happened. The world changes.
"You will recall what happened the last time Baroness Fox inspired a bunch of web designers to get together to save the world."
I thought you were going to say 'lastminute.com'.
"Templeton is an extremely rural community..."
Were pitchforks also involved? I like to think so.
"wiped 15 years of bookmarks I had trusted XMarks with."
He trusted them and didn't have a local backup??
"... like scheduling the washing machine to run during a week day rather evening or a weekend."
But who puts the clothes into the washing machine? Who needs a remote data centre or even a local controller to schedule their washing machine for them?
"... oil-immersed servers would surely make for many new stories for On-Call, ..."
The client asked me to top up his paddling pool with olive oil and then join him in it for a wrestling game. I made my excuses and left!
+1 for an appropriate Porridge reference. Mr MacKay wouldn't have been so naive.
It was a fantasy drink for the fantasy novelist. The incident will probably inspire him to write a novel about it. A win-win situation.
"... 2004 Honda Civic ..... 4.3 liter ..."
I find than amazing, the Civic is a small car. I have a 2.0 litre engine in my 2000 Ford Mondeo and it pulls like a train and can cruise comfortably at 80mph for hours on the motorway. About 10 years ago, I drove my neighbour's 2.5 V6 Mondeo and it went like a rocket. Why do american cars have such large engines?
Thirty years ago, the company I worked at used to spray their finished (and tested) boards with a varnish coating before fitting them into ship's instruments. I'm sure some similar waterproofing coating is in use for iPhones etc. I may be wrong of course.
"... bottom-quality earbuds that stop working after two uses"
I always throw earbuds away after I've used them once.
My local dump used to accept 'domestic' (transported in your car) loads of soil and rubble. Now they charge £2.50 a bag (and tell you the size of a standard bag).
I wish I'd completed my garden landscaping and raised bed making activities last year instead of getting lazy.
We're obviously incapable but it's the fault of the 'system'
Coat: Blame somebody else then run away after grabbing the pint..
"... in the one episode of the 39 involving a suicide, ... the model kept guessing right to the end."
Was the model 'aware' that it's possible for victim and perpetrator to be the same person? This might be an oversight on the part of the designers of the model.
The way that Graves and others left evidence for the FBI to find and use against them. I like to read these analyses by El Reg because it helps to remind me what to avoid doing.
This is cultural appropriation!
Does the landing phase involve any element of 'stick and rudder' work or is it also largely automated?
Wives always get upset when you line the loo bowl.
Yes, but paper is more reliable than the cloud, as we have often seen.
Don't you get a lawyer's letter for that, because they don't want 'Mickey Mouse' to become a generic term? (Oops, too late.)
"Conservative MP Sir Oliver Letwin asked what would happen if a self-driving car was "slow in responding to a change in signage", using the example of a smart motorway with editable speed limits."
Surely there's a 'grace period' of about a thirty seconds (or whatever) before any new speed limit violations will trigger a recorded offence? If not, why not?
It's called 'policy based evidence'.
From the description of heating effects causing changes to the electronic state and hence derived data value, it sounds like it could be used as a signal integrator (with fixed natural leakage rate) and a trigger output if heating rate due to signal (minus natural cooling rate) exceeds a certain value.
I suspect it would be quicker, easier and more flexible if you multiplexed all the inputs into an A/D converter and then used 'traditional' digital programming methods to perform computations on them.
+1 for "focused in-box?!?" Google did something similar, maybe 'topics'(?) or something. Totally annoying, confusing and useless.
"Most people want a computer that you turn on, looks nice enough and does the common, simple stuff really easily."
That seems to be what it does. Any fancy stuff takes extra effort, as is usual in life.
I decided not to ask for pictures.
Your headline writer is really straining with the rhyming names idea. I'd suggest extra fibre in the diet.
