And yet, you can almost guarantee someone has already drawn porn of it.
Honestly, I'd rather give up CPU cycles than see intrusive (or any, really) ads. I'm fortunate enough, probably like most people here, to have a powerful CPU, so the cycles are spare anyway. I could see how for a lot of users it'd be more of a problem.
It'd be nice to see it evolve into a way for it to be managed, via some sort of side action of seeing how well the page is loading, to determine how much strain the mining is having on the user.
But when I'm browsing the web, it tends to be all I'm doing (bar a tv show or movie playing in the corner) so I think it's a great way to help pay for sites.
The problem is the internet has always been "free", and that mentality is never really going to go away. Far too many people see ads as some sort of insult almost, even if they're not intrusive; just them existing is a problem. But content creators need to get paid!
I hate myself a little for how much I want this to be a full-on Note style issue.
I know it's pathetic, but they're just SO SMUG
Maybe he's from an Arabian country
I seen "It connected another 745 customer premises to its fibre metro area network (MAN)" and thought the MAN was short for Manchester. Got all excited.
I'm..not a smart person :/
I love things like this, absolutely blows my mind.
But hands down, my absolute favourite fact about this; even though this is the pinnacle of high-science, one day this'll be seen as humdrum. We'll be so advanced that harnessing the powers of a bloody STAR will be met with the same nonchalance as showing a teenager a gameboy today.
TIL I'm 8 years old.
This has been coming for a while. A fortnight ago China banned ICOs (El Reg covered it here https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/09/05/china_bans_cryptocurrency_ico_raisings/ ). China was always going to move towards this.
Moving currency out of the middle kingdom is a challenge (it might be illegal ? Don't quote me on that). So bitcoin was seen as a great way to cover cash in a society with very prying eyes. So of course they were going to crack down on it. China would never allow something like bitcoin to become pervasive, as they can't control it. And China isn't one to let that slide.
The thing with the Norks is that even if they did buy bitcoin, how are they going to monetise it in a big enough way to make it worthwhile. They need to move tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars a WEEK. No exchange could facilitate that and it not be noticed. Sure they could pay one off..but in today's age, with so many electronic eyes, it'd last about as long as a gnat orgasm
>before questioning if those that agree to expose themselves have not already drunk too much.
Ah yes, because a woman who flashes her tatas is clearly in no straight state of mind and must be being taken advantage of. Or maybe they just don't really see it as a big deal, and hey, some *might even find it funny*.
But nope, it's gotta be exploitation.
>I'm not a fan of Trump, but he is the POTUS.
For some reason I'm having trouble believing that
...to be reminded of stereotypical reprisals in prison.
They are gonna fillet this bastard, and honestly, I am slightly giddy at the thought of it
A big company like UPS is bound to be using the best, virus-impervious computers anyway, macs.
(PUT. DOWN. THE. PITCHFORK)
Virus scanners can only catch known threats or their derivatives (is that the right word ?), so if an enterprising hacker creates something knew, the scanners won't catch it.
BTW if I'm wrong on this I'd love some education. I assume this is how it works; scanners only know what to look for because of a database and the way they act. If there's more to it than that, I'd love to learn
Video conferencing for the day to day, to replace impersonal phone calls. And it's not just the the inmates who would benefit from this, can you imagine the joy it'd bring kids, especially younger ones, who would get to see Dad ?
This is has a whole other awesome side to it; a lot of parents won't bring kids to prisons/jails, it's just not suitable. A lot of the incarcerated never even get to see their kids grow up. Now they can watch birthdays, speak regularly, show them the macaroni art. Damnit I'm tearing up here.
Can you imagine as well the power taking that away would have to encourage behaviour ? More than a lot of cons hold onto the idea of seeing their loved ones again. A constant reminder of what they look and sound like would be god damn glorious.
And of course, keep the face to face visits, because cutting off human contact that doesn't involve a shiv is downright barbaric.
And to to the prick who said "don't do the crime blah blah I'm a twat", don't be an insensitive bellend.
(mods feel free to remove that line if it went too far)
Out the arse or through the nose.
It's more important to be seen with the *latest* gear, not the flashiest, when it comes to phones
And give the role of King Batti to Mads Mikkelson.
I'd watch it
£300. For a 17" iiyama CRT. Was a thing of beauty though,
AcKTually, it's squib, you plebeian
And yet if the situation affected you in the reverse, I'm sure you'd have a just as clever way of slagging that off too.
I do feel like as it's a minor, there should be some leeway, but overall, I think they're doing the right thing. People expect their profiles to be private, that should extend to after death (and before you open your mouth, my missus died in 2013 and I couldn't access her profile to get pics that were set private, so yes I have experience with this)
I am whatever the male version of "moister than an oyster" is.
"Professional priapist" is by far my favourite term I've ever heard for a sausage slinger
Man whore, hourly humper, and er..various ones that'll get my comment deleted I know, but I've never heard that one.
You learn something new every day eh ?
SECOND favourite ? That acid-fuelled yellow bastard ridden by a bunch of hippies as most definitely been usurped!
And don't get me wrong, the amount of time I spent watching that thing while acid soaked myself means it holds a special place in my heart. But anything even slightly associated with David Attenborough comes in at #1
The man is a bloody demi god in my eyes.
Christ mate you really cocked that one up, well and proper.
I can't help but imagine a game played on a pitch that size. You'd need a space telescope to see the goals
Let em all remove end to end encryption, put in a backdoor, whatever.
Then when they all flock to a service that *does* offer that, maybe then they'll bloody realise it's not the product they are loyal to, it's the capability of the product.
A terrorist isn't sitting in some cave using Whatsapp because it's the flavour of the month ffs
..this is super disturbing.
And by 'bit' I mean 'window licking champion for 5 years running' - I'm not a smart man by any means. However, even a dunce like me can see how gross this is, and what sort of world it is leading into.
It feels like Trump is normalising a cult of personality; a man so obsessed with opinion and criticism that any slight against him is met with the full force of any number of lawsuits.
And now he's the president of the bloody US, in a funny time in history - with liberals so confident smelling their own farts that they can't see that not everyone shares their ideals, facing off against conservatives recently energised by a man who says all the right words to validate all their prejudice. It feels like sanity is going to become the new fundamentalism
Honestly didn't know how much a TV license is. There is no way in HELL I'd pay that much, even if I did watch the Beeb
(I don't have a license because I don't watch TV, nor do a I stream it. Torrent it a lot though..)
Not everyone who reads this site works in tech, not everyone who works in tech works in networking.
Don't be a snob. Or without the S
This is excellent. I'm a bit behind on stuff like this, and this is both a great article and a brilliant guide.
Nice work. Would love to say an el reg guide section, for us lads who simply /pretend/ to know what the shit you lot are talking about most the time
Add "don't be a twat" to contracts.
Who gives a toss about if he used the sex wrong. You're completely missing his point to direct the outrage towards a gender issue.
For a minute there I thought I was reading a sincere post from reddit. That is A+ writing, very nearly got me HL+S'erd
I don't use social media - no twitter, snapchat, instagram etc.
I *do* have a facebook, but it's under a fake name (if I wanted to keep in touch with you after school I would do so), and I only add very close friends, people I'm in regular contact with, and it it is so I can speak exactly like I would face to face, so as you can guess, my posts are all the sort of things mates say only to other mates.
If I went to the states would I get into trouble for not having anything ? My facebook is absolutely non-identifiable (I don't have any family members on it - I don't know about you lads but it doesn't matter how old you are, you don't swear in front of your mam, it applies to 32 year old me, it'll apply to 62 year old me god willing, and my lexicon is...quite scottish, so I have no family on there at all)
I'm planning on doing a US trip in 2018, purely as a tourist, but I'll be buggered if you're gonna get a chance to see what I think about my mate ben's latest bird.
Bang up detective and reporting work. All you need now is a script and a role for Mark Ruffalo
"Ta Trump" fits better
Talk about shitposting!
...I'll get my coat...
Kind of related. but this is how I deal with my encryption keys to remove the chance of being forced to reveal them
I have my encryption key on a USB device, and a copy in my encrypted volume. I mount my encrypted volume, and shred the USB drive (er, software shred, I'm not made of money).
When I need to unmount, I copy it back to the USB. So if anyone were to come knocking, force unmount or simply flicking the plug makes the volume inaccessible and I can't be compelled to reveal what I don't have.
I will admit this has bitten me in the arse...twice...through the stupidity of an adorably excitable dog and her ability to trip a power cable. But the price you pay for security and all
..does anyone know the brand of lipstick the lad in the stock photo is using on his bottom lip because that is just a fantastic colour
People aren't a fan of prototype technologies on commercial aircraft. They want safe, reliable, and well understood.
HE SAID TURN LEFT AT REDBACK
Well, it was a more whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
But ya, a level of stupidity it actually makes an acronym valid. Congrats to him!
...is are an artiste!
"Not going on a rant cos 'Americans desperatly need to be liberated.' Learn to proof read or spell please AC cos your thick?"
Kinda hard to take you seriously when you're insulting the intelligence of another person while not being able to use "you're" properly
They're Apple users, so..all of it *ducks*
Everyone assumed the other side of Brexit they were voting for was an elaborate prank
I'm only 31 but you speak to me on a level that I couldn't be arsed finishing
Hey I'm not on the same level as a lot of you lads so can one of you more experienced folks explain to me why you would pick these over an nVidia part ?
The P100 reported on earlier does 5.3 teraflops DP, these do considerably less at 3.46 for the top-end part. I know there's more to a part than that but talking purely metrics, why would these be chosen over the green team ?
This is way WAY over my head, I actually no next to nothing about co-processors, but this has me curious
I *really* like windows phone. Purely because of the home screen, I hate Apple's and Android's way of just splatting icons, the tiles made the phone for me
I've been finding it hard to watch because the characters get these highs then are instantly bitch-slapped. The arcs are really small and painful to view.
I miss the overall tone of the show
