Already turned off on my One+3
I have no recollection of having turned this off (of course I could have forgotten doing so).

I have no recollection of having turned this off (of course I could have forgotten doing so).
I was disappointed because I thought there was a new website specialising in German porn!
That was my thought when I read that quote. From what I know the circumstances were that the side of the trailer was white and blended into the bright sky - something that can also happen very easily to humans. Anyone who's drive towards a low sun (especially during Winter with wet roads) will know what it's like to be overpowered by the glare. The M40/A34 junction at Bicester was a prime example - During the Winter there was almost a daily accident until they installed the traffic lights.
This will sound awfully cold (and is no consolation to relatives), but autonomous driving will always be responsible for deaths. The question is, is it safer than us meat bags and according to Tesla (who are not exactly unbiased) it is.
I know, can you believe that somebody actually wrote RFC 2549 (IP over Avian Carriers with Quality of Service). I mean what were they thinking - it's a ludicrous idea.
Too bloody right. How are we supposed to know what the Government have decided is terrorist material?
"But you're right. Working class Scottish Tory lesbian. If only she was black and in a wheel chair you'd have electoral Platinum on your hands."
Not in my office you wouldn't - they'd prefer hanging!
I was about to watch that, and then decided that I need to watch the whole film as Peter O'Toole is brilliant.
"Fake news! Deep government! It's all a conspiracy man!"
It goes all the way up the white house...
Is this the same Royal Navy that had a drone land on it recently?
I've been in a situation crossing the Southampton MTZ. I was clearing well ahead +1NM) when the guard vessel drastically changed course towards me. I was over half way across to Calshot when he got to me and all the pilot did was shout "do you know where you are". My replies were "yes, where do you want me to go?", which he completely ignored. After a minute of being shouted at I did an about turn and he motored off.
He had no interest in giving me instructions, just shouting an incredibly unhelpful question at me. It was left to me to read his mind. All he had to do was shout "reverse your course".
* The Moving Traffic Zone is an area of the Solent where you have to stay clear (1km ahead, 100m abeam) of large vessels. A guard vessel often motors ahead to ensure it's not encroached.
SOLAS might say that if you're "on the right, you're in the right" (McCain was hit on the port side, so was in the right), it's not relevant if one vessel is constrained by draft or manoeuvrability. Also, avoiding collisions is the most important rule.
If the destroyer had steering issues then it suggests a very unfortunately timed accident (for it happen ahead of a large vessel).
It was suggested that Fitzgerald was under EMCON when she was hit, so it's possible McCain was in a similar situation. I also wonder if the US navy isn't keen on informing general traffic that they're having technical issues - it's a bit embarrassing to admit that to the Chinese, North Koreans, etc.
Like Trevor Noah said about Trump's conspiracy theories, that he's the one in charge now, yet he's still harping on...
*In Trump's voice* "I know, it goes all the way to the White House"
Careful now, they probably want to ban SSH too...
"A&A's usage limits are ridiculously low, however."
Yup - they're quite expensive if you want a decent allowance, but personally I think they're worth the extra cost.
Maybe it just me, but I really enjoyed both. Plus, I felt that the over-the-top jingoism was satire. Same goes for the sequel, where the recruiter coos at the baby and says "we need fresh meat for the grinder".
Slightly related - I once described the film as "Paul Verhoeven's Starship Troopers with gratuitous violence and nudity". I was corrected by somebody saying "the gratuitous violence and nudity description is redundant".
Would you like to know more?
Is there an RFC for FOIP? I want to make sure I implement it properly...
Jesus - people actually did that? They'd get a dumb phone if that was observed here.
But then, "stop being a c**t" is a regularly used phrase in our office.
Ah, Tales of the Unexpected. I've got to find a copy of them again.
How hard is it? Very easy - it's how I built mine. I went to hobby king, bought all the bits, put them together by following some how-tos and common sense. Almost removed a finger too (common sense was on a coffee break at the time).
I also checked out the regs because we get RAF Pumas at low level near my office, plus we're just at the edge of a MATZ.
Where you have some 8 year-olds saying stuff that is meaningless to them.
I remember a program on advertising with Hale & Pace (or was it Smith and Jones) where they had to come up with an advert. One idea they had was getting a child to say something, but was nixed because it was unrealistic and therefore [possibly] forbidden in the 80s/90s.
"A picture of Theresa May smiling beautifically."
We have a few of them in the office. One colleague decided to get a collection of Theresa May photos as a present for another colleague (who was overly enthusiastic about her when she became PM).
These now have large amounts of very crude graffiti all over them since the GE (even the previously enthusiastic TM supporter joined in) - how the mighty* have fallen!
* Not that she was mighty in the first place.
"Costume" - you're luck he didn't tell you it was dress like a pirate day, just for shits and giggles...
When I turned up at work I got strange looks because I was wearing tidy trousers and a double cuffed shirt. It turns out they heard "a programmer is joining us" and thought pony tail and socks & sandals!
Yup. I've learned that it's easier to show people how it's done and let them write down in their words what they should do. Then I get them to follow their own instructions to make sure they've got all the steps.
I tried to create a flow chart for the printer, as I got fed up of being told "the printer isn't working - it says ink low". I probably should have put the XKCD Guide to understanding flow charts beside it. All paths did end in "have a coffee" though.
While I mainly agree with you, I disagree with your car analogy - I rarely have a user being that specific. It's more often analogous to "my car won't work" when they can't tune in Radio 2.
I often get "is the system down?", only to be told that they actually mean that they can't access online banking (while netflix plays on the other screen, and the CRM on the third). I've tried explaining that HSBC isn't keen on giving me access to their internet banking backend, but it doesn't seem to sink in.
I use the Make Trump Tweets Eight Again plugin for Chome - it converts tweets by him into a coloured 8 year old scrawl and puts some well needed levity* into his otherwise disturbing communications.
* Sometimes you need to laugh, just so you don't cry (or at the very least hurt your head by slamming it into the desk).
"2) WTF is 'Obaka' supposed to mean anyway?"
I guess it was an honest typo, unless he's using a DVORAK keyboard. Shame he didn't got full keyboard warrior and use "Barrack HUSSEIN Obama" - it always amuses me when I see that.
Damn it. You got in there before me.
I don't think "The Hopkins" should be a fraction of a thought. It should be used a unit of ant-matter as her screed is liable to suck intelligent thoughts from your brain.
Also, I don't think she's ever written a positive thing in her life...
Joined at hip. Apparently an orthopaedic surgeon got a tad confused...
I hand't considered electro-static discharge for the reason for their removal. My dad keeps a pop-rivet in his Discovery for exactly this reason, it's diesel so I imagine the chance of ignition is a lot lower. Plus it means you don't have do hold any oily diesel pump.
Floating decimal point?
I appreciate that we're a small business, but I run a ban policy of 1day when 3 fails are caught over 1hr. For MPs and their "acolytes" you'd likely hit false positives, but I'd expect* parliament to err on the side of security, not ease of access.
For me, it's a case of making sure our IP reputation doesn't tank if somebody brute forces a user's password. Our mailboxes are mostly un-confidential data, amazon orders and bigoted jokes**.
* That is, if I weren't so bloody cynical.
** I truly wish I were joking about that - <sigh>
There's always Galileo, which our good friends the EU run. Oh wait...
Using context isn't allowed. It's unfair...
Because we need $110+ billion dollars of revenue. That's good enough...
I asked a colleague whether he worries about driving to work after a fatal accident is reported in the news, when he said there was no way he go near London after the Westminster attack. The discussion ended with me being effectively told that I shouldn't put these things into context.
I had said that it's pointless to worry about terrorism is you don't worry about all the things that are more likely to kill you, and I don't want to live my life jumping at every shadow.
At a DefCon conference Jason E Street had a really good talk on the biggest mistakes he made because he felt that every DefCon talk is about "how great I am". At the end he asked people to say what the biggest mistakes they made were.
One guy said "I left off the 3 in 32 when typing a firewall rule", to a massive applause and laughter. Jason's response was asking the lines of "I think we'll leave it there, I don't think that can be beaten"
For those that are unfamiliar with him, "Steal Everything, Kill Everyone, Cause Total Financial Ruin!" is a fantastic introduction.
I find that using a hammer to drive in self tapping screws is a very effective workout...
I hope that most of us appreciate that many industries are stuck with legacy OSes, that's not unexpected. However the execution appears to be horrific. Your example of the MRI, if the machine is required to run in a fixed state then air gap it. Use portable media to copy data from it. If the controller is so time dependent, then you really don't want some SysAdmin running nmap on the network to bog down the controlling PC has it handles a network scan.
It's nowhere near the same level, but I have a CNC router. The G-code controller is also pretty time dependent (nothing like MHz, but...), so that machine is air gapped so it doesn't chose a bad time to start updating itself and destroy what I'm working on. Quite often setting up the job takes longer than the cutting time?
It's a pain, but what is better - losing your MRI for days on end (or if you say bricking is possible, longer) or having to copy data to removable media.
That's not how the API works - it's required to ask for permission (unless the user has explicitly told the browser to always allow access to Location, Camera, etc).
Easiest way to see is to click on the Info icon (or Certificate) in the address bar. It'll give you a list of all the permissions the website has. Any of the ones that have privacy issues will be Ask (default), unless you've previously given access.
"Why do you think all those sites which have accessed your camera and microphone for illegitimate reasons didn't ask you?"
I'm pretty sure they have to ask you. We use the notification and location APIs but I've never seen a browser give access to those permissions by default - it's always asked (unless the user has explicitly told the browser to "Always Allow"
Take Chrome (v.56 Debian) - Location, Camera, Microphone & Notification are all set on installation to "Ask"
You wouldn't believe* how often I have to explain to people in my office the HSBC, Lloyds, etc don't like giving me access to fix their online banking.
* Actually, I imagine you can...
Which immediately makes me distrust Leadsom - she's making promises she can't keep. May, at least has said she can't guarantee anything. I think that's the only positive thing I've every said about Teresa May.
As an EU immigrant, it would be great to believe "everything'll be fine", but it's far too early to say that. I don't think I'll be frog-marched to the nearest port at gunpoint - the worst I envisage is a whole load of paperwork - but it's sheer naivity to take a political candidate at face value. Let's be honest, that's how we ended up in this mess.
You've got to be Irish. As far as I can tell we're pretty much the only people that can look at people, names & architecture and tell their religion!
I tried to explain that to a colleague, in an effort to explain why I wasn't shitting myself about terrorism, and why his acceptance for the authorities to completely bypass the judiciary because "it's anti-terror" is incredibly short sighted. I gave examples of how anti-terror legislation has been completely abuses, but to no avail.
The most telling comment from him was - when I mentioned civil rights - "that whole human rights things is a load of bullshit, and it should be gotten rid of".
This is why this legislation will succeed simply because of people like him - civil rights simply don't feature highly in peoples' priorities because most of us have never needed them. Personally, I want them still to be there if I ever do need them.
You've met your MP? Mine was parachuted into a nice safe constituency, so has never seen the need to show his face.
I've written to my MP - in a different constituency - before, it was regarding BT's Phorm fiasco. He sent a very nice reply that pretty much quoted Phorm's PR rubbish, with the "opinion" that I needn't worry because they say so.
Interestingly enough, there are some parallels between the two. The difference being that was one to make money and the other is to save us from 8ft tall terrorists with laser beams under their moustaches.
This opens an interesting question - is herding fat cats easier or harder than herding their less plump siblings?
