Says professional devotee of sky beard ...
If you need one of them - not being able to order even 10off of most of them is a bit limiting for planning even small projectd
It says "arms" not guns, and nothing about conventional weapons.
You can prize my H-bomb from my glowing dead fingers
But look on the bright side - the last time the Hun tried to do mandatory encryption we got computers as a spin-off
German government really doesn't have much luck when it comes to encryption does it ?
Presumably you would just charge the BBC a license fee for doing so ?
Sponsorship opportunities - eventually people are going to walk around looking like F1 drivers
Where you genuinely don't know who to feel more sorry for
Yes - That's why all new passenger aircraft are flown under remote control around the world before you risk putting people on them.
I crew member to recognise the moon and the other to press the "keep orbital mechanics working as we continue in the same orbit" button ?
Could be a good kickstarter opportunity
Presumably the hard working educated and precise UK engineers have moved on to more lucrative employment - lets hope the City isn't allowed to hire all these foreigners aswell
That's the advantage of digital - it can mean anything you want.
It might be embarrassing to be a politician opening a new AI research lab, next door to the empty nano-material research lab, next door to the crumbing high-temperature superconducitivy research lab, next door to the boarded up 5th generation software lab
But with digital innovation thought leader research research you never have to worry about them failing to deliver
The smart ones will be working for their Guernsey based management company and will only be in the UK for 5 ears for meetings and integration - no tax and no NI
You mean there might now be smuggling across the Irish border - surely not ?
Anyone else remember the cow barns built across the border with queues of petrol tankers innocently going in and out of each end
No harder than finding people in the 60s who were bright enough to build mach3 spy planes but dumb enough to think Vietnam was a good idea
But IIRC only the initial dns lookup for the site - not the actual page url, and not any post/get data?
With https everywhere how much do they see anymore?
Only if you are a terrorist, they only monitor terrorists so if they are monitoring you you must be a terrorist.

Sir Humphrey: How are things at the Campaign for the Freedom of Information, by the way?
Sir Arnold: Sorry, I can't talk about that.
So if you were eg. CEO of a formerly great computer and engineering company and then ran it into the ground, fired all the good staff, split it into competing divisions, wasted $Bn on buying crap data analytics companies , etc
- would you be arrested for criminal damage or given a multi $MM severance package ?
Here it wouldn't be because sysadmin isn't a professional designation.
If he was an engineer and did this he would be guilty of professional negligence. But as a mere nuclear physicist I'm not considered a professional so anything I do that happens to leave a crater is considered just a D'oh moment.
It's a good way of selecting all the good staff who plan to get out before the rush,
Except in the case of IBM they all left a decade ago
It's a large scale test of homeopathy.
If it works then we will all be dead of radiation poisoning.
Or you could force them to try and solder with the fscking stuff
Here in Canada the term for visiting your lake-side holiday home = eyebrow raising to hear your boss announcing he goes cottaging at the weekend
And to make sure that you think twice before doing anything that may cause you problems later.
Like visiting the ACLU or Democrat websites or forgetting to follow the glorious leader on twitter.
Well nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition
If he has a modem in his bedroom
If he has an unrealistically attractive girlfriend who he shows no sexual interest in
If he is suddenly interested in Tic-Tac-toe / noughts-and-crosses
If he asks you if you want to play global thermonuclear war
When a picture of a little girl who has had all her clothes and half her skin burned off by napalm is offensive, because of the lack of clothes - you need to rethink your family values
Is your child a scouser ? - Hacker parents get warning signs.
They spend most of their free time alone with their maths
They have few real friends, but talk extensively to online friends about maths
Teachers say the child has a keen interest in maths, almost to the exclusion of all other subjects
They're doing maths so much it affects their sleeping habits
They use the language of maths with terms such as "pi" (pronounced pi), Euler, Function, lambda, axiom, proof, Galois (refers to a field rather than cigs),
Members of the Anonymous Maths group refer to their attacks as attacks
They refer to themselves and their friends as mathematicians or mathmos
They have multiple email addresses
They have an odd-sounding nickname (famous ones include Bourbaki)
Their computer has an app called matlab which is used to access equations which have letters that are numbers
>In California non compete clause are not valid.
And $Bn companies secretly agreeing among themselves not to hire anyone from another $Bn company is also illegal - did that stop them ?
They did read it, it said something like "your employment is being transferred from RIM Holdings Incorporated PLC to RIM Incorporated Holdings PLC" - this is the sort of stuff you get sent at least once a month when one of these giant companies is restructuring.
It doesn't say - "and we are taking away all you benefits Mwaa Mwaa...." in the small print. You need a lawyer to say that they could, but the lawyer is always going to say that they COULD do something bad even if it is just a form to sign to say you are getting a new door card.
Here in Canada we have a special exemption to all the employment acts if you work with a computer.
No overtime, no limits to working hours, no statutory holidays, no vacation - apparently it is necessary to allow highly innovative Canadian companies to compete internationally (presumably with N Korean slave labor)
How are they going to carry it?
On a line under the dorsal flight feathers ?
I think they have just discovered the secret to eternal peace - make all weapons so expensive and complicated that you can't afford to use them and they don't work when you try.
The helicopter is quite fast so they would have to be enhanced cyborg-pigeons with jet packs.....
The 2Johns one on the new fighter "... and that's when we add the trunk and paint it white"
Ironically I think it was written about a previous fighter project but perfectly describes every more recent one.
I thought bees were already bar-coded ?
Generally they do this by painting the flag of the country doing the ordering on the side
And what happens to schools everywhere when one of those religious fundamentalists gets to Washington?
>The Judiciary branch can state if the Executive branch break laws enacted by the Legislative branch.
So a bunch of liberal elite unelected judges can override the President who was elected in a landslide by more than 100% of the people (if you discount all those who illegally voted for the wrong woman)
How can a federal agency receive an illegal order?
If it comes from the government it's legal
That's where we have tricked them - we already have out own system for doing that
Why would we bother hacking our enemies?
Unless there is a war what good does it do to know the Russian or Chinese military's secrets?
It would be far more valuable to be hacking the Eu ministries that will be negotiating Brexit or the US agencies that will be deciding on the tarrifs to place on the UK
And Russian packets have snow on their boots
