I see you have Miss Hodgesaargh working for you. Well done.
"It makes a series of significant factual and analytical errors, assuming that this kind of data agreement is unprecedented."
So, it's been done like this before has it? Can anyone give an example?
"In fact, every trust in the country uses IT systems to help clinicians access current and historic information about patients, under the same legal and regulatory regime."
What does that have to do with the Deep Mind agreement? You might as well say that every trust uses thermometers under the same legal and regulatory regime.
Where did you get Mint 18.3? I'm still on 18.1
“While it’s easy to upgrade to the next version of Ubuntu… we wanted to enable those that have big deployments of 12.04 more runway to plan effectively ..."
If they'd planned effectively then they'd be on 14.04 by now and be exploring options for an upgrade to 16.04.
Here is a quote from Yvette Cooper on this subject, taken from The Independent:
“There aren’t that many proscribed organisations. Don’t you feel any responsibility, as multi-billion pound organisation, to check you are not distributing material from a proscribed organisation?”
I'm sure we'd (most of us) agree with her on these particular examples. However, what happens when a different government complains about promotional videos from other 'proscribed' (by them) organisations? I'm sure we can all think of possible examples, now and in the potential future.
"The plans were reversed on the basis that they breached his own party's 2015 manifesto pledge ..."
When did that ever stop a government?
Also, the first video seems designed to give the impression that an injected sound caused a video to be played, according to the experimenters choice. The implication is that they can make your phone show what they want you to watch.
The entire story has been hyped up by these experimenters to give themselved coverage and publicity. The Register seems to have gone along with this.
That leads to the question of how shitty the patches will be in that 'culture'. Any guesses?
“OpenStack will smash the monopoly of the western cloud providers!”
Do you think anyone from H3C or Huawei was brave enough to tell him it was developed by Rackspace Hosting and NASA, those arch-capitalist running dogs.
If they thought it would be 200km above the surface, why did they aim the illuminating radar at a point 160km above the pole?
Isn't it the responsibility of the US Government to be better at negotiating prices and contracts so as to get the best deal for the people who actually pay for it and pay their salaries? What magical abilities do those corporate clients have that enable them to get massive discounts?
Did they actually steal it (deprive the owner of the use of it) or did they illegally copy it?
They should have used a Hotmale or Woohoo! address.
Coat: I'm not telling you what's in the pocket.
"... socialists obsessed on sucking the people dry."
Wasn't that a line from an old 'Up Pompeii!' show or a Carry On film? Nostalgia for Frankie Howerd and Kenneth Williams is all very well but try to be original.
This is an example of my monday morning 'abilities'. I thought it was ISP metadata, not telecommunications data.
I'm trying to think of civil cases where ISP 'metadata' would be of interest. All I can think of is a divorce case where one party claims the other was going wild on internet dating sites. Any other ideas?
No, they go to Silicon Heaven. Of course it exists!
"...was performing routine maintenance on one of the robots on the trailer hitch assembly line when the unit unexpectedly activated and attempted to load a part into the unit being repaired, crushing Holbrook's head."
"The robot from section 130 should have never entered section 140, and should have never attempted to load a hitch assembly within a fixture that was already loaded with a hitch assembly,"
I'm having difficulty undertstanding all that. 'Robot', 'unit', 'section', 'fixture', .... are robot/unit and section/fixture the same thing? Was she killed by the robot she was working on or by another robot that moved between sections?
Either way, why did they have power connected? (and other related questions.)
I only read stories like this in The Register, so thank you. Maybe I need to get out more and widen my reading horizons.
Heck! The truth is complicated isn't it? Well pointed out and thank you.
From Wikipedia: "KakaoTalk currently has 170 million users and is available in 15 languages. The app is also used by 93% of smartphone owners in South Korea."
"... consistent and uniform protection of the privacy of their personal information ..."
= a big fat zero everywhere
Sensible people have two satellites made, at a large discount, with one kept in storage in case of accidents like this.
Will a VPN bypass the TalkTalk block?
"Police Scotland was committed throughout to working with the supplier, Accenture, and the Scottish Police Authority, whilst maintaining the integrity of ongoing discussions during that process and commercial elements of the contract."
"There were challenges and issues on both sides, but we worked closely with Police Scotland ........ and we mutually agreed to end the project."
They're not at all 'at odds'. They both agree that they did the best they could under the circumstances. I'm sure they'll be dating each other again in the future.
"In recent weeks, suspected infringers have begun receiving stiff letters from their ISPs."
Is this a crossover from the sex & technology article? I'm with Virgin Media so I wouldn't be sure what to do.
I didn't see Linux in that set of bullet points. Is it secure or are you still reading about all the exploits they have for it? Enquiring minds are anxious to know.
Take it for a test drive. It's nice.
Sadly, Barbara Woodhouse is no longer with us.
I just logged into my Hotmail/Outlook webmail and read my Junk mail with no problems. (Yes, webmail - I've had it for many years and I enjoy the retro feel.)
But I hate myself :(
"The Salford and Liverpool plan follows 12 months' collaboration that began with Liverpool looking for a partner to help on an ERP and financials projects, which saw the pair first share the price of a premium SAP engagement package."
They should all have been doing this sort of collaboration for years. It's good to know that this form of mutual working is becoming a thing nowadays. All we need now is for the various police forces to start cooperating with each other when specifying and buying equipment ... etc .... etc.
Haven't Spamhaus (or somebody like them) been sued in the past for flagging an organisation's emails as spam? I hope they're suitably structured to make it difficult to get money out of them.
Maybe I should make a 'low-privilege' user for browsing, not just because of StoneDrill but on general principle. I don't like the idea of losing every file that I have access to at this moment. (I do have full backups on a drive in my desk drawer.)
Were all the security holes in WP plugins? I remember reading comment that WP itself was good at security but needed plugins to make it do things that most people wanted it to do.
"... a freighting concept."
You're thinking about putting them in a box and sending them somewhere else. I suppose it's easy to do that with robots.
It's a reference to Draco Malfoy, from the Harry Potter stories. It means to misuse your powers, arrogantly and for evil purposes in a place that isn't quite connected to reality.
How can you be expected not to violate a patent if the patent is secret? Do you get to examine secret patents, to check if your development work may violate them, if you're cleared to work on defence projects?
I'm sure, or at least I hope that there are international agreements and protocols for positioning of earth orbiting satellites by the various organisations that launch things. Is it the same for Mars or do they take a look at what's there already and make a 'sensible' decision about where to put theirs?
Don't let Colonel Panic know about it.
Anyway ... maybe it's too long ago......maybe it didn't really happen .... I can't .... I don't ......nurse!!!
Does anyone remember that? Ah ........ memories.
I have a feeling that this isn't glass as most people understand the word. It's probably some kind of micro-porous vitreous matrix that allows ions to easily migrate through it.
Does anyone know the details?
I feel better now.
.... I speculated that a truly intelligent weapon system would run/fly away and hide in a tree. My colleagues at the time said I was being silly. Ha!!
You can change the Mint menu icon to a Windows menu icon (or anything else) if you really want to go retro. I did that in the early stages as well as having Windows 7 desktop wallpaper but I realised that I was being silly.
I'd like to see the difference (if any) between "S c r e w you Trump supporters" and "B l e s s you Trump supporters". I suspect they are identical.
My Wacom Intuos tablet had a driver update (on Windows) that totally changed the settings GUI and gave me a cloud based parameters storage and loading 'facility'. The idea is that I can more easily manage its settings and have them backed up in case of accidents and also, of course, easily migrate my tablet between different computers.
I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled from the CD then blocked Wacom software at the firewall.
"... Penal Tracking Bracelets..."
I didn't know that many people rushed out to buy these. Did you mean Penile Tracking Bracelets?
"... managing to bring windows 10 into the conversation ..."
Is this an example of Godwindows law?
