Hmmm. Surprised that not all details of any illness would be recorded.

Re: How as this even possible?
The fact that a USB stick exists with open documents tells us plenty about that organisation.
None of it good. :(
Re: How as this even possible?
Absolutely. Doesn't matter how many procedures you make, people will settle down into the lowest state that they can get away with.
If these are IT professionals, they need serious discipline as they are aware of their responsibilities.
Other staff are or will exploit holes in your security and they wouldn't tell you about them.
So, you absolutely must not allow them to do this exporting onto removable storage.
Sure, they'll complain. But with sensitive documents, you don't let them unless they're encrypted.
Any IT professional knows this, so there must be a very serious lack of care at this department and now that's public knowledge.
Not a good position to be in...
I want one that works...
Give me one that works and works fast. I don't want to reset it every 2 days because it's ran out of memory and I want H.265 support to watch my PC stored movies.
If it displays a blank screen for longer than 1 second, then that's too long....
Explain 'Blockchain' in one sentence...
Re: Adblocker time...
They've already announced they plan to use a long thin scrolling advertising banner at the bottom...
Come back when America starts using Centigrade. They are still using the long obsolete Fahrenheit standard.
Never listen to your fan base
Typically Microsoft listened to their fan base. These type of people like or are customed to what Microsoft do.
Every company has them and they're great for getting bugs fixed or existing products made better. But they're rubbish for getting new ideas.
Most companies realise this and never mix the two. Costly mistake if you do....
Re: Yes, the original version. Yes, the normal one downloaded from the Piriform Website.
Hmmm.... This probably explains why my Malwarebytes program keeps popping up that it's real-time protection is turned off...again. A threat scan by it or Defender doesn't reveal anything though.
So why should the cleaners, child minders, librarians, security guards, drivers get fined for lousy IT?
Re: What's in it for me?
The other major benefit for users is the durability of SSDs. The huge number of home users who move their PC whilst it's switched on is massive in my experience. Eventually HDD will be used for backups mainly.
Goodness sake use text files!
Don't see how. The data lines of nearby USB ports will not be switching logic levels.
Sure, if I put a A/D converter in the USB device I could easily record minor changes in the data lines.
But then if I'm doing that, it's pretty safe to bet the PC is unguarded.
Then a couple of capacitors across the data lines will solve that problem.
In any case, hardly real-world scenario...
Re: Assuming it was armed...
It wouldn't show up on Radar...
You seem to go out of your way to not mention that these things can be bought on the High Street. Like Menkind or Maplin? Why is that?
Manufacturers never learn.
Just a damn stupid idea to bring in a subscription service.
So obvious it's one of the best things that Britain has ever made.
Why can't people understand that it's output would be decided by the viewer numbers and not creativity.
No other Media output is monitored so closely and has Law behind it. Heck I can write to the BBC Trust and by law I've to get a report and an answer.
Try that with any other channel.
People wanting a opt-in option really don't care for the organisation and probably would pirate it in any case.
Ah... So cute that you don't understand.
Yeah, you press it 43 times and the battery catches fire!
Still living in the 20th Century where they think they can dish out as much shite as they want.
But nowadays there's educated customers who know when a company is pulling a fast one.
We'll just need to inform our clients what we think of their devices.
Still got my hand held PC-1500 with 4K of RAM. It's a 6502 with 16bit accumulator still running off 4 AA batteries after 30+ years.
Will this mean the scrapage of quantum dot televisions will be long term toxic to animal life? ;)
Re: Who still uses farenheight for things like this ?
The Register has to sadly support our old American neighbours. Still living in the 19th Century.
School never taught me that...
After I was qualified to be a Microsoft IT engineer by the University of Edinburgh I didn't expect the reality of people not actually liking you because of your job.
Seemingly I stop people going to Web sites at work, I stop them downloading stuff. In effect, I'm a policeman I was told.
Manager thought I was rubbish because I allowed 1 spam email to reach his account. I tried to tell him, the software had blocked 999 of them that day. He would use his email on USENET!
Director told me, IT was a drain on the business. It did nothing profitable for it.
Seemingly the £20,000 I saved him on license fees that year was forgotten. Odd that.
I was quite happy to get out and do freelance IT.
Wish School had taught me how to deal with people who really didn't care what they got up to at Work.
Re: AES was not cracked, cut the click bait
Ah. So not an electronics man?
Re: How well was the PC prepared? TEMPEST?
I think I'd notice a 10" loop aerial lying around...
Re: How well was the PC prepared?
Lots of kitchen foil and stickyback plastic Blue Peter style required?
If you haven't reported a store to the ASA, can I recommend you do so. It's fun and very easy to do.
I reported a big single fruit company (not really fruit) and sure enough the advert was banned. The company tried to get in touch with me for a tour of their factory, hinting at a give-away. I declined.
Done this reporting a few times now.
Re: No other options but to press "OK"
Which will be 99% of the market. If you've never worked directly with the general public on IT issues, you're in for a shocking surprise as they'll trust anything, anywhere.
Why is it ailing?
I'd just like to get 4G in me home!
You could buy a quality suit or any item from any film from 1984 on wheres.
Talented fans were taking orders for copies of any film or TV prop. So not exactly a new thing. You just had to know someone who knew someone back then if you get my jist.
Can someone tell us his ISP? His download speed must be incredible!
Re: What I don't understand
Can't do that with my phone or tablet...
I'd rather not have a USB stick welded to my person either.
So, this airbag has an airbag.
Go on, you know you want a third...
We need a secure caller display system
If they couldn't fake or withhold their numbers, we'd be in a better position to complain.
How about a complaint button that logs the call with your telephone provider who then has to publish the list.
Re: The very issue it the culture "WE CAN'T BE WRONG!"
What education and nationality are these censors? Hopefully each country is covered by locals.
I'm worried about the people wanting to see this sort of thing. We'll always have lunatics posting extreme videos.
About the only way to reduce this is to have a system where the poster of videos has to get approval from other FB friends.
But it's impossible to be effective whatever Facebook or governments decide. Just realise this.
There's dumb and there's stupid
Truly a very stupid company.
Obviously got no IT Staff on the payroll.
Nominet are very good at reminding folks and even allow an extended time after the names expire.
Even more stupid to report it to the Police. Nominet owns the names and so no property has been stolen.
Like having images of a guy nailed to wood, bleeding is OK?
Nailing the skin of people to church front doors was OK?
Burning people alive was OK?
Saying the Earth isn't flat?
I just press the 'thumbs down' button to all the programmes I watch. Just to confuse them.
Re: why oh why?
Well, you could say that about their S6, S7 & soon their S8 range.
0.1% returns is darn low. But I bet a few of them must have smoked.
Re: why oh why?
Some of us don't fly more than once in a decade...
Give me one. I'd make sure the World knows it's great.
Re: Environmentally friendly disposal
Och, they said the same about the Wizard of Oz. But no one else actually goes and has a dig.
Oops I've slipped into the Twilight Zone.
Loved the piece on Containers. Why not simply put a ! in front of a directory name and be done with it! (Subtle old Acorn humour there).
Moved across the Atlantic?
Why are you speaking in American?
Re: Two things
But Snakes are cool...
So, it's official. Americans are more stupid than the rest of the Western World.
Going to take a huge and long term change of thinking for the average person.
Some will just use it as an excuse for a while to do nothing. They'll eventually get bored, depressed, commit crimes, attack people and property.
We need to provide training classes for those willing to do them. It can be exciting to learn new skills and to do volunteering jobs.
