Funny how most of the services that are shuttering are clickbait ridden sites that make money from advertising and linking tracked customers...

“our engineers went through your logs, and they saw exactly what you told us, they saw exactly what you said happened”
I’ll just leave that there and let everyone consider the implications...
Re: So, uhm...
There’s a difference between public figures and public officials. Public officials have legal and moral obligations to serve the public fairly.
Re: Off with his head!
“Can't they just logout of Twitter to view them? If so it doesn't really stop anyone viewing them.
It’s not just about viewing the conversation, it’s about being able to take part in the debate.
You cannot post your opinion if you are logged out, blocking accounts therefore controls (censors) the discussion, potentially limiting comment only to those who support the politician.
"You could see debt collectors come and take things on Friday/Monday."
You can't just "send in debt collectors". Indiegogo will first need a Court judgement that the debt is owed, something that is likely to take months. Collection of the debt can then be attempted, and only if that fails can they apply for a writ in the High Court for enforcement, at which point the Sheriffs can be engaged to remove goods.
Re: Is it significant ...
In what universe would a politician be interested in the truth or facts. All they want is buzzwords that the public want to hear so they get re-elected.
Perpahs the vet world doesn’t use LinkedIn, however it appears every single IT recruiter has asked me to link, and they shift between agencies regularly, so it would be hard to prove any of them “stole” the details from a previous employer.
Or are they meant to de-link when they move employer?
Who is conducting the consultation on behalf of HMRC (because as a one off task, it’s the sort of thing departments get a large Management Consultancy to undertake)?
Who has the most to benefit from a reduction in the small limited company worker market by placing their own people in the flexible worker space?
No conflict of interest there then... #sarcasm
“the cost of prosecuting the case would have been higher than the paltry sum of tax they could have claimed if they'd won”
You cannot use the cash value as criteria for prosecution, sometimes it is necessary to enforce the principle of law. Would you consider it OK not to prosecute a shoplifter because they only stole something worth £100?
Wasn’t the big “thing” with OnePlus that they were not tied to certain carriers? You bought your device then stuck your SIM of choice in it. If they are now having carrier only deals then I see no differentiator over other devices.

A perfect example for Business on why you need to make sure of the background, resilience, security and support for any software you deploy.
Open Source can be cheap to install and utilise (TCO is rarely zero), but what happens when the “Vendor” fucks up? “Oops, my bad, we’re broken and all our support material is gone. Might get it back, who knows...”
Open Source can be very good, just make sure you’ve done your due diligence before recommending it to the company.
It’s in our procurement rules now, even for “free” software and services
Vendor = ‘Adobe’ - authorisation rejected by IT. Marketing HATE us, but the board agreed with the presentation showing how much it really cost to maintain Adobe products including Acrobat Reader. We are now Adobe free.
Great if you're changing the snazzy front pages of this months hipster coffee house :)
Not so good if you're handling transactional data for peoples salary and mortgage payments :(
Re: :-( My Mail Server....
Per email size limits was always an issue back in the day.
Plenty FTPMail sites let you download files like patches, I think Microsoft even had one. It's one of the reason split ZIPs, RARs and other file splitting tools flourished, sending multiple emails per file. (HJSplit still seems popular in some NewsGroups)
Re: Will never get passed...
In one way you are right - Courts should retain the right to grant a search warrant. That’s not what the act prohibits. Read it again, the act “prohibits courts compelling access”
Perfectly right to pass a law that protects manufacturers making their products secure, and protect them from orders to break that security.
“We send thousands of calls out using numbers that don't belong to is on a daily basis.”
Then fucking stop doing it. Don’t care if it’s currently legal, it should be illegal. There is no legitimate reason to use a false number. If you’re not prepared to identify yourself with a number owned by you then you fall into the scumbag category.
"Dr. Dre is not a medical doctor nor is he qualified to provide any type of medical services or sell products specifically in the medical or healthcare industry"
So strictly speaking the musician shouldn't be using the protected title of Dr and we should look forward to a protracted investigation and legal case
Don’t worry, there’s a cunning plan afoot.
Britain will trade the encryption for something we want from Europe, but we’ll leave a special back door in the encryption that only the government can use and Britain will still have access to the system.
“just agree a reasonable price for it”
And what is a “reasonable” price? What would be “reasonable” if Brazil took over amazon.com? I’m not suggesting the two are in the same ballpark here, but the principle remains.
Once it's on The Internet, it's there forever...
An interesting one indeed.
The wayback machine has the site back to 04/Nov/1996 and has a long history of updates. If he's been leveraging it commercially then no doubt he has accounts to prove its worth, which I suspect might be in the millions over a number of years, hence the French government aren't willing to cough up.
From the initial evidence, I find for the plaintiff.
Well there can now be no argument over this government being Rudderless
I wonder if the incoming manager will be handed three envelopes...
The story of three envelopes is a business classic for dysfunctional organizations. It starts with an incoming manager replacing a recently fired outgoing manager. On his way out, the outgoing manager hands the new manager three envelopes and remarks, "when things get tough, open these one at a time."
About three months goes by and things start to get rough. The manager opens his drawer where he keeps the three envelopes and opens #1. It reads: "Blame your predecessor." So he does and it works like a charm.
Another three months passes and things are growing difficult again so the manger figures to try #2. It reads, "reorganize." Again, his predecessor's advice works like magic.
Finally, about nine months into the new job, things are getting really sticky. The manager figures it worked before, why not try again. So he opens the envelope drawer one last time and opens #3. It reads..."prepare three envelopes."

First rule of Thesaurus Club: You do not talk, speak, chat, deliberate, confer, gab, or converse about Thesaurus Club.
Ironic, but without knowing the details of who NT1 and NT2 are along with their previous actions it’s impossible to know and comment if the decision in either case is a good or a bad thing.
It does however demonstrate perfectly that massive decisions are made that affect our lives without us ever knowing about it or having any real chance to challenge.
The crawling’s already done. The implementation is to remove the results from each search, essentially a list of “forget” results must be consulated after the initial search.
Re: My own ISP...
You can always create their standard account then delete the entire account when the work is finished.
You did delete your suggested account once the issue was resolved, didn’t you?
AND THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH...
Fuckups with Mail Merge have been delivered since the day after the concept was inventied. But now we have social media to blow everything out of proportion. While it’s funny it’s the Torres who want to keep all our data, move along, nothing really to see here.

who operated an unlicensed Oracle support company
Why does this make me think of Ghostbusters and their unlicensed nuclear accelerators...
The cloud act basically puts foreign employees of US companies in a conflict between following company direction or local laws.
Most countries have laws that protect employees from the company ordering them to undertake illegal activity.
I assume that the Irish government will still refuse to let the USA have direct access to servers in Ireland.
Isn’t part of the problem that the US hasn’t even bothered to ask Ireland for access?
Re: the "only solution" you forgot
Who is stopping the works from unionising? Is it IBM, or are there other forces at work...
When the Union of Automotive Workers tried to unionise a VW plant in Tennessee it wasn’t the company that turned it down. VW actively supported it (workers collectives are essential to their operation in Germany), gave employees a free vote, and helped promote it. The State threatened to cut tax breaks, and the federal government put pressures to prevent it. The workers were ultimately the ones that said no. What chance have services sectors got?
Re: Still no go
”I will continue running my DNS on a VM in a cloud service and query that via a VPN thank you.”
And where does your DNS get its resolution from? What is it’s parent? Or are you one of those muppets that are hammering the root servers directly?
I mean, it’s not like anyone with nefarious activities in mind has never lied to anyone in authority.
And I hate to point out that the nasty people Trump is trying to stop are also those who come from countries with some of the poorest infrastructure and tightest controls on social media, and are therefore the most likely not to have social media accounts. Or maybe that’s the red flag they’re looking for?
"improvised, battlefield hospital"
This is not a pop-up thing that moves from building to building on a daily basis. There's a lot of equipment which takes time and resources to move, and "spies" tend to notice that sort of thing. And even if it was moving regularly, you do kind of need to tell people where it is if you expect them to use it

Re: What about WhatsApp et. al?
The FSB may have approached lots of companies and lots of people. Whether they gave up keys or not is unknown.
However since Telegram was founded by Russian brothers (who potentially still have family in Russia), and Telegram allegedly has offices in St Petersburg it is possible the FSB has more leverage over Telegram than the others (which doesn't in any way impact the technical ability for Telegram to hand over keys it doesn't have).
"rather than take up valuable court time and costs we intend to apply afresh for a new licence in the near future"
In other words, "we know we've been breaking the law and will be exposed in court so we'll come up with a new scheme to cheat the system".

Spent too long on r/GoneWild me thinks...
Trump is stupid enough to believe that redomiciliation to the US makes any difference to who controls the company.
All it means is the company become liable to US tax, and as we know all great US technology companies pay their tax.
I thought the only thing left on Usenet was pornography and abuse. Oh, wait..
If you have an Escort remember you're normally only paying for their time. Any other service they provide is purely consensual, and while protection may be quoted in their services, I doubt its the type you need to attend Court
Don't you see where this is going...
ISPs will eventually be required to block all sites deemed "in scope" by the government. This may be porn, or could be any other site the government has promised to stop children viewing (I'm thinking gambling will be next).
Anyone wanting to visit a "in scope" site will need to sign in to the Government portal with their Government Gateway ID to get access.
Re: New El Reg bacronym?
Only if you expand the backronym...
“if you can't protect your invention”
As your article points out, RIM/BBM made certain features popular.
Based on the dates on the patents I’d suggest RIM/BBM did not invent them, there was prior use of the features in other messaging tools, they were just the first to attempt to patent them.
Re: Overpaid Commissioner
Many commission and bonus payments include provisions for clawback under certain criteria, and one of the criteria often includes continued employment with the employer. Presumably this has been a factor in this case and because she lost the dismissal case she invoked the clawback. Just speculating.
"...or would no one take on the case."
Even in the less litigious UK it's rare to find a case someone won't take on as a "no win no fee" case.
And the one thing I've learned reading about numerous court cases is that you never want to represent yourself (possibly even if you are already a member of the bar).
