Or words ending in! ??
The NHS would do better to just hire a few capable sandwich students.
People who study sandwiches? Where do you sign up?
better than deskside support, which often got auto-corrected to the strangely appropriate despised support..
Additionally at least one has detection of repeated transactions per ip address. Causes problems if people in an office are on one shared external ip, and many of those people try to buy something at the same time.
IIRC this protection (and others like disallow a card issued in one country from being used from an IP apparently in a different country) can be turned of by request of the website owner.
I think what he meant is that for the import side, we can charge whatever tarriff we want, so if we have no tarrifs then we have no processing of imports to do. Exports are really the responsibility of the receiving country so again no need for the UK to do anything.
This would be to ignore export controls we might enforce on weapons etc, that would still need handling, although there might not need to be much or any chnage here. It would also suggest that people can bring in rabid animals, nuclear material, drugs and so....
Need to check el Reg rules, but I believe this comment is copywright to me. It'll be a bit of a faff for me to now generate a hash of my comment and distribute it all websites.
--edit now I need to generate another hash and redistribute...
indeed. The 'I feel lucky' result from my search went to an article in The Guardian about this court case. Might well be different if I was using google in Australia tho.
If you decide to use the "premium" paid for offering that is. Which of course also means the government will know via the Inland Revenue (and if you bank with RBS as it's still 71% government owned).
And if you bank with TSB, a lot of their other customers....
The idea that it may not be fixed before the contract expires is almost funny.
Presumably we then sign another contract with a new suppier and start all over again, perhaps with some lessons learned.
Digital or so-called smart TVs that automatically pause when you stand up to pop to the kitchen, and play again when you return and sit down And If I get up to adjust my trouser region and a bit of a man-scratch?
It'll change channel and find something else to help with that...
the uppers classes and brain dead celebrity spotters.
Are the celebrity spotters comparitively brain-dead due to them not taking enough uppers?
Small point of pedantry - that should be Fairey with an 'e'.
When spelled without the 'e' the word has a different meaning, as in "the idea of the F35 ever working as intended is a complete fairy story"
Yeah, but who doesn't like the idea of going to war in a fairy swordfish?
Phones will have buttons running parallel on both sides, so that pressing the one on the right means you also press the one on the left.
Which just happens to be how you restart the bloody thing.
So both emails correctly located in 'junk', then?
They claim it makes you go blind..
the joule in the low-calorie podcast meal,
Made my day.
I was hoping this was a quantum version of the old Nokia game...
It becomes even worse with cloudy-digital, running FTMV (fiber to moving vehicle) is proving tricky
Successful for who, Capita or the purchaser of the service?
It involves existing treaties which exist for this purpose and which require TPTB to get a warrant from an Irish court. In order to do that they have to put together a convincing case as to why they think they should get the data.
You may wonder why they haven't done this.
I'd guess that if they (the DOJ) win, for future investigations they will know that they won't need to go through the international hassles and can just force a cloud provider to provide the data under US law. If they win they have set a precedent for the future.
When they pester users to "just upload your contacts - it'll make things easier" without spelling out in big clear print and simple words that this is a criminal activity in the EU unless you get consent from every person who's details you upload.
Is this true? I've read some stuff about data protection, but it's all been approached from the point of view of a "company" and their handling of inidividual's personal data. I can see that uploading your contacts/phonebook might be a questionable thing to do, but is it actually illegal?
reminds me of paypal.....
It's in Manchester.
I think the industry sector is also relevant. You see a lot of very well paid jobs in London, the best paid are in banking/finance, and many of them require finance experience as well as tech skills (also degrees but that's a different article).
I'd say it's inevitable that if you say you live in London, and you don't work in finance, the salary calculator will suggest you're massively underpaid. At least it did for me......
If only there was some correlation on being PCI-DSS compliant and actually being secure....at least it forces you to patch.
It also forces you to think, for instance about your network architecture. Apparently there are rules covering taking payments by phone, and using an ip-based phone system, along with networked computers, which wouldn't have occured to me. Mind you this isn't my job area.
Hi Mr Coward, is your name Ian?
You visit your mother-in-law and she charges you for meals? Sounds a bit harsh.
I think it was Tom Sharpe whio had exploding flamingos. Riotous Assembly or Indecent Exposure?
but to ask to join either the EU or the USA (51st state)
I think Puerto Rica is reckoning to be 51st. We might have to settle for 5n.
How many companies do you suppose are under contract to keep their data encrypted to protect their customers?
While not quite 'under contract', the new data protection regulations in Europe are certainly pushing companies towards encrypting all customer data. While this alone won't protect you from data theft, in the event this happens it will be important to show that you considered data security, and encrypting it would be an obvious thing to do. Pretty soon I'd expect encrypted data to be the default, and it's not a particular leap to suggest that this might include communications, as well as databases and the like.
This is where we need a telecommunications operator to stand up and say ok fine we will develop a service that is encrypted in such a manner that we do not have the technical cabability even under duress to decrypt.
The whole point of this paper is make doing that illegal. You (as the telco) will be required to able to decrypt anything that you encrypt, if you can't do that you would be in breach of this proposed law.
the last page of the document on ORG specifically excludes those operators who are providing telecomms for financial services, including banking.
As far as the e-commerce stuff is concerned, this only covers encryption services provided by the telco or isp. It might, for example, be a nice selling point for a telecom/isp to offer me a fully encrypted service. This paper would make that ineffective as that provider is required to be able to decrypt my communications on demand, if they are the ones providing the encryption. If I take the standard service offered today, and choose to encrypt the data I send over it (using https for example), that has nothing to do with this paper.
I think they're trying to prevent fraudsters from misusing credit cards.
One of the checks done to spot fraudulent use involves comparing the country of the card issued with the country identified from the current ip address of the person using it. If they don't match the transaction is flagged as potentially fraudulent. Depending o the processor's rules, it can be denied. Using a VPN would make this less effective, not to mention you don't get an ip address for the possible fraudster.
Previously known as amanfrommars ?
Today's technology, solutions without problems. Paradoxically it has produced large numbers of billionaires.
Also quite a few new problems...
Sadly the most recent ascii-art I can recall is at goat.se (NSFW). I wonder what these databases make of this?
Great comment, coming form a judge.
The inclusion of amanfrommars contributions should help advance the science.
I think I've just spotted a bug. You executed that loop twice. Perhaps you didn't factor in oil depravation.
At first I thought that was a typo for deprivation, but on reflection, maybe not.
Re-read the article. The job spec isn't just Win 10/Office. More to the point they want Exchange, phones, voicemail and networking.
When I clicked the Start button, "Restart" and "Shutdown" had been replaced by "Update and Restart" and "Update and Shutdown". Is that new, or have I just missed it in the past?
It just means that there are updates to be installed. When they have been installed, the legends will return to what they were before. Until next time...
The problem in the UK has always been short term thinking except in a few companies with strategies and vision like RR.
Seems to me this started (or maybe just got a lot worse) in the 80's with the rise of performance-related pay. If the conditions for getting a bonus are sufficiently badly thought out, it can mean that the management strategy for maximising bonus can be contrary to the best interests of the company. This would be particularly true if you don't expect to be with the company for long.
A true genius and what did we do with him? Prosecuted and chemically castrated him, driving him to suicide.
Perhaps better not to reflect on him after all.
Perhaps not long term, but at one point they survived largely because Microsoft bailed them out. At the time Microsoft were trying to claim they didn't have a monopoly on PC operating systems. Having Apple around was kind of necessary, being as the 'year of Linux on the desktop' still hadn't arrived.
