Tell me again why I can't pay ElReg ~1/month and skip the (blocked anyway) ads?

Re: A dash of salt
"I expect this to be debunked shortly. 3.8 billion light years is just too far to see planets."
Which is why they didn't. RTFA
biohazard's were a brand new thing hardly anyone knew of when WOTW was written. Just another case of SciFi reflecting society.
Don't raise the spectre of that!
'WHAT THE F*CK IS GOING ON?' Linus Torvalds explodes at Intel spinning Spectre fix as a security feature
"Then there's Skylake, and that generation of CPU cores. For complicated reasons they actually end up being vulnerable not just on indirect branches, but also on a 'ret' in some circumstances (such as 16+ CALLs in a deep chain)."
Real excitement is where they mention RET is busted too.
Probably embargoed vulnerability they are trying to address without saying so explicitly ?
Re: Interesting fix
And their goes energy efficiency and throughput.
GMail supports plus addressing too.

Re: but where were the spiders?
I knew a girl from Mars. I don't know if you knew that? Oh we'd stay up late playing cards!
echo "firefox hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
"they are planted deep in a server's system data stores "
What does this thing actually do ?
So many of these recently. Has someone got a tool that scans for open S3 buckets somehow ? Is AWS leaking a global list of S3 bucket names somewhere ?
Everyone who upvoted: Your on The List now.
Re: Slippery slope?
"protected characteristic" has a particular meaning.Paedophilia isn't one.
Re: To be honest,
But not on UK TV. Criminally.
So I can't "continue this" from Windows Phone then ?
If you rapidly switch a whole bunch of stuff off and on again quickly, the local sub will probably give up. Most are only a dozen electric cars away from brown out anyway.
Re: Good News
" The only thing it doesn't work for is Android phones (should a visitor have one) as they have Google DNS hardcoded."
I've never seen an Android ignore DHCP DNS server settings ?
Are you willing to go to jail for owning a compiler, or running Linux ? That's where this will end up...
Re: Email this to your MP
Great idea !
You might want to join the Open Rights Group as well.
There may even be a local group in your area already - https://www.openrightsgroup.org/groups/ !
Re: Doesn't a proxy defeat the purpose?
What dedicated IP ? TLS has SNI.
Re: Thank god get_iplayer still works fine, and is not limited to the "approved" platforms

And DRM has worked flawless in the past. Never been broken when motivated...
I though it just sounded like an expensive version of AWS RDS ?
Re: Hitting a limit without being able to scale up or out ? REALLY ?!
The linked article on Medium has the guy saying "I’m making a wager that it’ll be worth the cost savings over the next year to go with a cluster that is capped at 4TB."
Guess it wasn't worth it...
Why the screen shot black outs for the publicly available info at https://github.com/AusDTO/dta-website/pull/311 ? Are bjgordon or skpandey27-patch-2 somehow a national secret ?
Re: "the only available computer is communal"
You misunderstand. You can use fronting with many domains. They will only ever use / release one at a time for Signal use in order to keep the pool as full as possible (and create more work for the bad guys).
Re: Still debating the same points, again
"All the above points have been raised and debated so many times. I really don't understand why the Government just does not go back and amend the act "
The *whole point* of the DRIP and IP bills is to legalised the (pre-existing) indiscriminate mass surveillance that Snowden and others revealed was happening, in absence of law, oversight etc.
As it turns out, those activities they seek to legalise are incompatible with leaving in a free, fair and function democracy. Never mind fundamental rights to privacy (remember, the EU rights just enshrine UN principles). But Our Glorious Leader has hitched her self to the "something must be done. Terrorist blah blah blah" wagon and so has no way out (such as an appeal to expert opinion).
"So ZyXel have a backdoor into the routers they have sold? What happens when (not if) the bad guys get a hold of that?"
They just did...
Re: Too much cheapness

" a Chirp to a Wi-Fi router to authenticate and join the network. You may not want that to be audible"
The fuck. If the router can hear it, so can my phone !
Re: Have they fixed the "no way to disable a SIM" problem in Cyanogen 13?
"Now, when I'm in the US, I have no way to disable the UK SIM. "
Just take it out you lazy sod.
Re: Why not filter by comparison?
Linux's NTP already does that, no ?
Yup. It's bad. Anyone can register on any site. And it's probably as an administrator too. Oops.
This could be like that Drupal vuln where if you didn't patch within 7 hours or something you should consider your site owned.
Something must be done. This is something.
What's the point of a wildcard, when you can have as many as you like for free as often as your want ?
But think of the bundled software ! Experience the joy of being part of a giant world wide botnet ...
Sounds like Pouch/Couch ?
Re: Redmond playing catchup again
Sounds like Qubes OS
This should have been posted on a Friday ! Much better than the normal ones...
VPN ? Are you *sure* ?
Last time they announced this, it was actually an SSL-stripping HTML man-in-the-middle proxy...

Re: What goes up...
Thus spraying shrapnel either on the target anyway, or the civilians under the flight path.
So how does this work ? Patient data is held on the Spine, or a local PMS, and air gapped from the Internet. So how does an app on my phone get at it ? assuming you even want to get (yours ? your kids ? parents? strangers ?) patient data on line...
Re: This is going to solve itself eventually
Except (ironically) the 'exclusive' shows on Amazon/Netflix, who were *meant* to be 'all you can eat, whenever you want, from anywhere'.
