Just can't catch a break, can ya, Capita? Shares tumble 40% amid yet another profit warning

PeterM42

Re: RE: Carillion

"My reading of the issues with Carillion was that it failed to deliver a number of large projects, largely for the public sector, on time and attempted to use debt to cover the period between expected payments and the actual payments."

No - the problem with Carillon was that the management were robbing the company and the pensions fund by paying themselves shedfulls of money for doing a crap job. The proof being that they went bust.

Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign

PeterM42

Er WHAT?.....

"The team proposed splitting kernel and user spaces to prevent this information leak".

I would have thought that was pretty basic security, but there is not much about WINTEL that smacks of ANY sort of REAL security.

Classic definition of management in far too many companies today

"...managed by a bunch of numpties who themselves are managed by an even more incompetent bunch of numpties and so on ..."

As long as you have one (or 2) MicroSD card slots, a 256Gb (or 2) MicroSD cards should help with the offline storage problem.
