and therefore the fraud charge is real.
See, as a I understand it, the US are trying to extradite a Chinese National who is the CFO of a Chinese company who sold Chinese technology to Iran through a Hong-Kong subsidy, to face charges of breaking a US trade sanction.
And my question is, what the fuck has it got to do with the USA?
And that door-opening sound?
It's unmistakeable, even after all these years. I was watching a Sci-Fi program recently where I'm pretty sure they ripped off the Doom door opening, and I recognised it straight away.
The other thing that sticks is the music, I remember downloading the midi files 'cos I liked them so much.
It's really sad that you are so deluded that you think that all the many posts on here deriding Assange are just astroturfing.
You only need to look at the posting histories to see that this is not the case, unless you are so paranoid that you think the posting histories are a carefully maintained fiction as well?
We get it, you think the sun shines out of St Julian's arse.
Some of us, however, have a more balanced view.
You're not fooling me, number 6!
Reminds me of the bloke running a boating lake, he had a megaphone to call in the people who had had their alloted time...
"Number six, you're time is up"
"Number six, please come in now, you're time is up"
"Number six, come back in!"
"Number nine, are you in trouble?"
"This animal shows that behaviour and we have no real idea of how that happens, except that it seems to be inbuilt".
Thank you. After posting my comment I had that exact thought. It's very easy to say something is an instinct but actually it mostly, as you say, means we don't know where it comes from.
And that begs the wider question of how, and why, organisms manage to expand, modify and store behaviour over generations, or through metamorphoses as in this case.
I would say though, that to call this "intelligence" is a bit of a stretch.
During the whole metamorphosis process, the memories of the caterpillar remain intact and are transferred to the butterfly. “Things that the caterpillar has learned, the butterfly still remembers,” Levin explained.
Is there actually any proof of this at all, or is it just anthropomorphising something which is an innate instinct?
I don't know why THIS rag has a bunch of Left wing morons on it .. perhaps you're just young, who knows.
In what universe is it a Left Wing thing to support Theresa May? She's a Right Wing politician FFS.
The EU is ALL about Germany and France .. that's why over the past 40 years you've seen manufacturing leave the UK in the MILLIONS of jobs.
No, over the past 40 years, various flavours of UK government have systematicaly destroyed most of the manufacturing industries all by themselves. And had it not been for certain protections offered by EU employment law, they'd have removed most ordinary workers rights completely.
It makes no difference whether May voted to leave or remain, not even the most rabid remainer could have made much difference to the way this is turning out.
I often find reading the story first most illuminating.
I find reading the story and understanding its contents even more illuminating, as it prevents one making crass and inaccurate comments later...
Igor staged his death in Moldova by arranging for the corpse of an unknown person to be placed between two bushes at the entrance of the Cojusna village in Moldova and placing in the clothes of the corpse lgor's passport and other identification documents
Whilst working as a fresh-from-school apprentice in a telephone exchange, I was tasked with helping to wire up an additional selector rack in a Strowger exchange.
The rack was already in place and powered by the 50V DC feed through two hefty copper busbars about 4 inches apart. The busbars were plastic clad, apart from the ends near the rack where terminations were made.
The individual wiring to all the selectors was carried on open steel cable trays mounted above and to the side of the busbars, and these cable trays were bolted together by M10 nuts and bolts.
So who do you think it was who managed to drop his 10mm spanner neatly across the bare ends of the live and return busbars then?
The equipment room went strangely quiet, as all the selectors stopped chattering, and the spanner glowed gently, and then brighter, and brighter, and then melted gently in the middle, and all the equipment sprang back into life, followed by the clang of alarm bells and the flashing of warning lights.
I carefully climbed down the ladder from near the ceiling, and went and owned up to the T.O.
I wasn't sacked on the spot, just lectured on the importance of caring for my tools...
It's not so much the audio quality that bothers me, it's the inconsistent signal.
Using a DAB radio at a friend's house, which is situated on top of a hill, with line of sight to the nearest transmitter, we still get regular signal dropouts. I would imagine it's unusable in a car round here.
Is this push for DAB just so they can sell off the radio spectrum, or is there actually a sound technological reason to use it?
So my understanding is that Black Friday originated in the US as the day after Thanksgiving - essentially their equivalent of Boxing Day.
However, here in Blighty, retailers have tried to co-opt this as yet another sales opportunity.
Only as usual, they can't leave well alone, and what started as a single day of sales, has somehow morphed into Black Friday Week, and then Black Friday Month.
Is it any wonder then that the public, in general, have gone MEH!
Just because yaml.org have tried to rewrite history doesn't make it true.
When it was first introduced, YAML was indeed Yet Another Markup Language, and not the pretentious self referential bollocks they are now claiming in an effort to make it a look like legitimate programming language.
Having a good score on securityheaders.io does not mean your system is secure (e.g. unpatched CVEs, insecure server config, etc) but having a bad score does tend to indicate that the devs are probably not paying attention to best practices
That's nonsense, it simply means that the devs haven't implemented all the headers that Scott feels should be there - two of which, by the way are still very much experimental, but he still marks you down for.
You might notice that www.google.com only scores a "C" on Scott's site, but that doesn't mean they are shoddy or third rate, it just means they've chosen not to implement CSPs etc.
if they haven't bothered to set CSPs or the HSTS header (on an e-commerce site which should be all-HTTPS all-the-time)
The HSTS header serves no useful purpose if your site / server only responds on HTTPS, and has no HTTP bindings.
As for Content Security Policies, they are fine if you control all of the content appearing on the site.
It becomes impossible to create CSPs that don't inadvertently break one or other tag manager, tracking pixel or whatever.
I'm not advocating that this is right or proper, but it is the reality of hosting e-commerce sites on behalf of third parties.
It would be great if we could dictate to clients that they must only use content providers we approve, or not use third-party script etc, but we wouldn't have a business for very long if we did that.
As always with PCI, if there are compensatory controls in place and documented, then it can be PCI compliant.
One of our environments has to still support TLS1.0, because a high percentage of the clients connect using it, and we have no control over the clients.
That's why I said it would be a business decision. If turning off TLS1.0 breaks your site for 40% of it's users, then you don't do it. It is entered on the risk register, and the QSA will sign it off.
however they had completely inadequate security against an attack like this and were not following PCI best (required?) practice.
That's rather a large assumption to make based on Scott Helms' IO headers site, which is mostly bollocks.
If you use htbridge.com or ssllabs.com then the site scores an "A" in both cases, and if you look at visiondirect.co.uk it scores "A+" even though it still supports TLS1.0 - which is probably a commercial decision.
They wouldn't have to invest so heavily in "cyber" security if they hadn't systematically pushed the utility companies into using the Internet for their critical infrastructure.
Time was when electricity, gas, water, railways, nuclear etc, etc used private circuits to do all their internal telemetry and monitoring over, and you would have had to work quite hard to break into them.
