I read the pdf there was no representation from the EFF. So yes a default judgment. Lol, too late, pointed out better in the above comment.
Read the article, called shenanigans and checked the date.... Ah ha! Dropping into the comments, ID Missed the links!!!! went back, the patent one had me laughing!
It sounds good, but when space X will have years of practical experience with turning around and re-certifying engines and space frames, will they be able to catch up? I wouldn't bet on it
I believe the Kerbals have taken over battery processing at Samsung.
Works for enterprise licenses only. So as a small business to get windows to work properly I must licence each employee for a 12 month period no matter how little they work for me. So I also need server licensing, cals and all that crap. I guess I could create special employee designations for logons rather than their names. Or I can go back to win7 and it just all works, waay faster and simpler, until I need a Kabby Lake based machine
I want to earn money, not spend all my life trying to get MY bloody computer to work properly!
I do not have a big enough business to support the headcount I would need to maintain this shit properly
Windows 10 better? Muck up a shortcut in the winX folder, or have a context menu item fail, and you loose 50% of the functionally, or just have thr black screen of #_ck off, windows automatically updating drivers and trashing machines.
And they wonder why pc sales are falling flat?
Its astounding that people will use the horrid interfaces and keyboards on tablets and smartphones. PC's have become so unproductive that no one wants to turn on the box of bugs in the corner, unless they're forced to.
Good one Microsoft!
I guess I've fixed too many PCs.
The first number of the stop error code gives you an idea of what is going on. 7B is the classic inaccessible boot device....(device drivers for reading your c:\ drive not loaded) other numbers indicate other things. Most problems are down to drivers breaking. Third party driver updates are wonderful for this! ROFL!
Anyway most other drivers can be disabled in the registry, and marked as do not hang if it fails to load. (requires offline registry editing)
Memory dumps are also great, a if they're recored and a free pc to put all the debugging tools on

Oi! You lot!
Too many people playing the man and ignoring the solution!
"Personally I'd love to see a lot more electric cars on the road, and more nuclear plants providing energy and more money for research in to fusion. But that's because I don't think we should pollute the environment. I don't need junk science to motivate me"
Too many Greenies drive big 4WD tanks and don't give a feck about the poor, well anyone apart from themselves.
The Nanny state needs to bloody grow a pair and step in.
Tell them to take their medicine, cause everyone knows its good for them, and just move us all to nuclear.
Leave it to the Greens and Santa will drown!

This was good though!
The "poor motorist" doing 5 or 6 kph over the speed limit is just as much a real criminal as these people.
Interesting, I'll challenge that assumption.
One causes an obvious body count.
The other, simply bankruptcy, destroyed businesses, loss of income to all their employees, probably suicides.
One is unintentional, the other is not.
People struggle to keep their businesses operational at the best of times. The internet has become a very hostile place, where one misconfiguration can give access, and most operators don't have our level of knowledge.
As another poster points out common sense should be applied.
Does sound bad overblown.
Then again after helping a small business unprepared for a ransomware hit, who had a new eager employee.... It can be ugly.
You missed how much he was being paid.

Sounds criminal to me.

What could go wrong?
That on average men can't be expected to evaluate women fairly, in a peer review setting.
So you need to be certified unbiased for peer reviewing? Or women should only be reviewed by other women.
Expand that out into other Minorities. This could end with really perverse outcomes.
Oh hang on its the US! Their legal system always gets it right.
The Tassy grid was recently supplemented by 200 large diesel generators because they only put down one cable to Victoria and it broke.
They had run their dams down to critical levels, maximizing profit (making the most of the carbon tax whist it lasted, and letting the dams run dry), when there were signs of stress on their inter connector, cause if the rains didn't come they could rely on that (oppsie)
Some of the stuff coming out makes it look as if the SA interconnect was regularly asked to operate above designed levels. Politicians and reporters jumping in early and getting it wrong is no real surprise, and your all still doing it.
Wait for the full report, and recommendations before blowing your foot off.
Handled well by Mr Turbull? No. You expect better from a PM.
He looks plain stupid as a result.
Then again its hard not to look stupid, with todays political reporting the way it is, they love taking things out of context and trying you to fall for backing up any completely off the cuff statements.
The positive outcome is that NOW people may actually look at the problem, rather than playing politics.
"Maybe they've missed their true vocation all these years"
I find it oddly comforting that the company that can only get things to roughly work, is the one supporting the idea that fundamentally the universe, 'kinda works' too.
Don't forget the upgrades that remove functionality.

I think they know something, that we don't.
efibootmgr (linux) is handy. One of the hassles is the boot order gets stored in flash. With a fall back option in there. Don't be surprised if an option you put in there gets stripped if it doesn't boot
I wonder if this slowing down of the attack will prove effective. They may be still able to purloin some sensitive information.
It may be easier to return forms uncompressed or introduce some random noise into the page. (random hidden text of varying length)

How can this survive against an antitrust investigation.
Microsoft being a serial offender in this area. The US may look the other way, but the EU? And any countries with anti monopoly laws.
Its not as if the lay person can get into a PC these days and turn off secure boot, and install something else.
Hell, there are a lot of win10 certified systems out there that you would have to go through windows10 to get to the EFI settings to then turn off secure boot.
How do you do that without having to agree to windows terms and conditions?
I read this article and got the impression that their advocating an app, over a potentially out of band communication.
The only way that I could think that this would be safe is if the app is on a standalone device.
for example it uses wifi comms to transmit the data to the authenticating device, including amount, who the transaction is to etc, which is then displayed on the authenticator for approval, before being wrapped up and signed by the authenticator.
i.e. another device with all the foibles of a mobile phone, but is only allowed to run the one app.
I can't see that being popular.
Late reply as always.... Life is busy.
The TCP stack in windows has an interesting history. They built it into win 3.11 windows 3.1 did not have support, eek was that win 3 and 3.1? damn I forget. You got full support with Trumpet Winsock. Quite a good TCP layer, especially as it didn't hang up your modem on reboot (windows loved the blue screen back then)
But MS felt threatened.... and built something not as good, bundled it in.
So afterwards of course, there were artificial limitations on the number of connections you could maintain, and winsock wasn't quite the same as unix socket layer, it had its own quirks if I remember correctly.
Couldn't let their mainstream OS become a server OS, but that could be made into a sharing limitation.
and the fun moved elsewhere, DHCP and DNS quirks....
finally they let Cisco redo the ip stack in 7? was it?
MS have form, opportunity, but this time around I don't think they have the motivation, at least I sure as hell hope they don't.
Embrace Extend.... Nahhhh they couldn't be that stupid! Could they?
I thought that was one of the better ones. USB support too.
Shame it will only run in a VM, with the new win10 certified hardware.
Gotta love mandatory secure boot!
Go Win10 go!
Was a client of mine, about four years ago now, she was completely gullible fell for it all hook line and sinker. Had them going for 4 hours.
She is a sweet old dear, 36K dialup is all the nonsense broadband she ever wants, and refuses to upgrade. Could they talk her through a net install of teamviewer.... Not a chance! XD
"A. m. capensis workers increase in number within a host colony, while numbers of the A. m. scutellata workers that perform foraging duties (A. m. capensis workers are greatly under-represented in the foraging force of an infected colony) dwindle, owing to competition in egg laying between A. m. capensis workers and the queen, and to the eventual death of the queen. This causes the death of the colony upon which the capensis females depended, so they will then seek out a new host colony."
Thank you Wikipedia. I guess something like an increase in, regulatory bureaucracies, results in the death of Freddy Mercury?
Our system is so good you'll never need anything else.
Until the use cases appear for the contrary,
and some bleepard shows of a new system that works that little better,
and we all have to show that we're building it into our new products,
and it finally gets ratified as a standard,
and then we will be saying again.
Our system is so good you'll never need anything else.
Kinda like Trusted computing, DRM and all that. We won those battles!
It looks like someone has told Samsung that top end smart phone market is going to be eaten by good enough cheap androids.

How much does it cost?
Damn you Samsung!
No a small business owner, who dispairs at what happens in Australian politics. Really it's worth listening to. This year the posts in the Internet are getting really feral. I simply got my hackles up at the personal attack above.
From listening over the years, the system is broken. Labour most of all, then the libs and greens to about the same amount. It's looking more and more like the only solution is for us ( real people , not political players since university ) to get more involved.
Labour unfortunately has the additional issue of it's Caucusing system. If they took the recommendations of that Royal commission to heart and reformed, they would get my vote.
This election I expect the Libs to get punished, cause we all see real issues that need to be fixed.
Trouble is that could leave us with again an unworkable parliament. If Labour gets in, well, with this current lot.....
It won't be pretty for small businesses. Of course some will be more equal than others.
I believe they are referring to New Zealand Greens.
Unfortunately in Australia most vote for the Australian Greens as you would vote for a centralist party.
Our Greens are not. They tend to be more left wing than the ALP. The Australian Democrats (wish they were still around) used to play the centralist role, and 'Keep the bastards honest' The greens don't.
Its either their way, or you can go away!
This has lead to the awful situation that we have suffered for the last 9 years. Parliaments unable to properly govern, and oppositions playing silly buggers. Due to lack of control of the senate.
Gonsky and Public health funding were NOT ALP programs for the future benefit of Australians. They were scorched earth political games, so in opposition they could howl cuts, when the Libs actually funded at or above trend increases, to make up for the fact that they initially were ALP funding cuts!
The Libs, may deceive, and lie by omission. Labour doesn't bother, they go the 'BIG LIE' route. They make it more plausible by all reciting the same line, over and over and over. Yes they promise the moon, they have changed they're not the same team that they were,.... um look through their ranks... they are!
Labour has in opposition, opposed everything that involves budgetary restraint, suggested about 2 impossible savings options, and voted for any program that involves a higher spend. This is so they can take aim at the coalitions economic "mismanagement".
So vote for these economic vandals. People who will happily sell the national interest down the drain for decades, to attain power. People who screw everyday employees, cause they're going to be screwed anyway, and they can get cash in their slush fund ( enterprise agreements, LOL read the [redacted] ones, legally allowed to pay below minimum wages, thanks Labour!)
The Parliamentarians with integrity tends to be portrayed as mad arsed independents.
Greens are better you say? A vote for a green is not a vote for Labour? Actually listen to Parliament. Make an informed decision.
%Deity% is just more amazing with each discovery that makes the universe more incredible.
Man however is not %Deity% i.e. not infallible. As such where religion is involved, we tend to make a 'Right royal hash of it'
Existence of %Deity%, should not be provable, and we should not care about it. Those who want to believe, go ahead, those that don't, fine.
Just respect that others don't necessarily share your beliefs, and we all can live happily.

Oh no! I cant say anything logically consistent,
This was all about killing alternate OSes.
Not Linux, thats not a serious M$ competitor, by installed user base. XP, Vista and were the targets, and with win10 certified motherboards you can't boot them. M$ win!
They really didn't have to stuff win10 down our throats as they are now, I guess they've become impatient.
Coreboot was looking so good, then this came along :-(
ALP back in, NBN deployment will have to slow, cause they have to replan how they are doing it again.
Telstra will get paid another time for their existing network and.... Expect to see all the contractors go through new workplace safety training, cause of all the ACCIDENTS, and somehow the next round of funds for deployment will go to those organisations who have gone through the latest safety training and have nice pseudo union head count.
All to be finally privatised, ie sold to (We won't force people to pay monopoly fees, pinky swear!) telstra for about 1/4 of what it cost to the taxpayer.
My Jaundiced view will get downvotes now, lets see how many of those come to pass (Hoping that Labour doesn't get in, and ACTUALLY manages to reform itself)
People, please get involved in politics. At the moment its broken, but we CAN make a difference if we all get involved!
@JeffyP... Thank you for your clarification. Unfortunately 'reducio ad absurdum' seems to be a governance style, and reporting style. It seems to resonate with the masses.
I see it as a real problem.
Solutions would be, better education in rhetoric, or just growing up and discuss the issues at hand fully. ;-)
You seem to thing governance is an either/or affair.
May I suggest you take the same approach to other aspects of your life, water, salt, oxygen, advice.
And people wonder why the world is in a shitty state at the moment!
Working democracies are fragile, they need care and attention, effort and respect. From the citizens and the legislators.
There are plenty of other types of governments out there.....
I fear we'll be sampling them shortly

Already ran into this drama.... Win10 certified hardware is Secureboot only, you cant turn it off.
It finally force me to update my PXE boot environment to UEFI, a confusing nightmare, as I was used to how everything operated before.
GPT tools vs standard disk partitioning is not too hard to grok, just beware of the partitions uuid in disk cloning are not the uuids that ms uses in the partition names (Useful if your having boot issues)
Start of with Memtest86 not memtest86+, they offer a UEFI bootable version. That GPT disk structre is everwhere, so you should be able to split out of each version the GPT disk image, etc and figure out how it works.
ipxe romomatic, only allowed the efi option, and point it to the core binary in the GPT image, I forget all the details, but once youve cracked that nut your on your way. The key is that the bootloader is UEFI signed and you don't use some component in the boot process that use older bios calls(or so it seems)
What you'll find is that UEFI support at the moment is patchy Memtest86 supports it but Memtest86+ dosn't, ipxe not gpxe etc.... The new vesrions of the major distros support it. Having a computer that actually flashes up momentary error messages is rare, but a boon if you find one. It's getting easier as more things support it.
Ramifications: what if MS start charging an arm and a leg to use their code to get things signed? Your initial loader may have that problem, but you probably can build something like ipxe's rom-o-matic. Yes you have the one static loader or similar that you have to get going with but after that anything can be autoamaticly generated from that initial version, so sharing a single signature across an entire community.
Security: A small step. (is it actually worth it?)
Benefit for MS: Killing off its competition. The enemy here isn't linux (small pc market share) but older versions of windows! Replacement hardware requires a newer OS. Motherboards that support 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 are going to be thin on the ground shortly.
Weirdness: One of the systems that I've come across, was locked to secure boot only had an option for windows 10, or an older windows version in the motherboards uefi menu screen (It still required secure boot so older means windows8)
We have to compete with the lowest paid globally for work. Yet we aren't allowed to buy in a similar manner.
Cause when you try to install Vista or ealier, on a windows 10 certified machine..... IT wont work.
EFI; Initially I thought it was all about killing of linux. The scalps that it actually claims today are XP and Win2K. A successful result for MS
*Egregious Ferret Insertion
Yet, the NBN was a complete dog's breakfast, under Labor.
The project was milked by some, and completely crucifying its contractors, only minor areas actually benefited although promised to everyone, $40B price, complete Bovine excrement!
le standard Labor project.
Its still an appalling disaster, but now its getting somewhere.
I still fail to see the sense in nationalizing the land line network. Just because we F__ked it all up last time is no reason to repeat the process. Oh hang on... I'm forgetting the need to pay the cronies.
Nahh, problably angling with the boss to get moved higher in the building.... 6th floor sounds like a good hint.
@Trevor NX is great over a wan, was able to send video faster than rdp. Shame about the Moribund nature of support for OpenGL, ie version 1. It means some applications just will not work.
X2go was the implementation I preferred. Best of all its only, like grinding off your genitals with an angle grinder
