Re: I'm sorry...
I was just watching that the other day...

Or was the stolen data not actually 'classified' at all, just commercially sensitive stuff that the Americans would rather foreigners didn't get their grubby paws on?
Did you miss this bit of the article?
"Justice did not have access to classified material, but, claimed Special Agent Peter Lee in an affidavit, he allegedly handed over proprietary trade secrets that, under international arms laws, could not be moved from the US without an export licence – in breach of arms laws, as well as trade secret protections."
I seriously lol'd at this comment:
"It's amazing that it is still down, particularly as this is not a cheap service we are using. All they are offering is a day's free hosting for every hour outage - but only up to a month free - so that’s £60."
Mate, if you think that's expensive, then maybe you shouldn't be running "online booking systems", for god's sake invest in a proper hosting facility,
@anonymous boring coward
Yeah, the foxes shouldn't have any right to eat. Why not exterminate all wild animals from this island while we are at it? In other countries they have bears, lions, tigers etc, but in this one we can't accept some foxes. Pathetic.
Wow, Strawman much?
No, the foxes shouldn't have the right to eat farmed poultry, there's plenty of other things they could eat. I did not, and do not suggest exterminating them all, I've no idea where you got that from. And I don't support hunting, either.
I don't think I said anywhere that I support hunting, did I?
I was simply correcting ChrisG who said "a small mammal that largely (in the countyside) keeps down rodent numbers and looks cute"
This may be the townies view, but anyone who farms knows what a struggle it is to deal with foxes.
So no idea about how the real world works
...to chase a small mammal that largely (in the countyside) keeps down rodent numbers and looks cute.
I'm sorry, but you also have no idea how the real world works if you come out with shit like that.
Foxes are a pest that kill enormous numbers of chickens and geese every year, they aren't just a cute little animal.
"Attackers can reproduce the trajectories of the user's hand then recover secret key entries to ATM cash machines, electronic door locks and keypad-controlled enterprise servers."
I wonder if they could work out what a watch wearer was doing, given the output like this:
" It enhances dimly lit interior and night scenes, revealing more detail in darker areas, giving TV producers the ability to reveal texture and subtle colours that are usually lost with existing Standard Dynamic Range TV"
Umm, is he talking about turning the brightness up? I can do that on my 15" CRT telly!
Well said Pascal, the whole basis of the "experiment" seems flawed to me, they don't even mention if they had a control group of unpainted vs unpainted wasps fighting to compare traits with. And the conclusion drawn from the "experiment" seems wholly out of proportion to the actual results.
Bad science, in my view.
Do people under 30 have actual IDs?
Few of them seem to vote so are we sure they all really exist and are not some Matrixian constructs?
Well I have a teenage daughter who appears long enough to eat any food available, and then disappears again. I'm pretty sure she does exist... if only occasionally.
But on Facebook at least, only your direct circle of friends can see that information (by default)
Yes, but a large number of Facebook users have all sorts of miscellaneous additions to their friends list, like favourite shops, football clubs, local pubs etc, as well as friend requests from friends of friends, or even people completely unknown to them.
Those extra additions open up their information to far more people who may not be trustworthy, unless specifically blocked.
It's as if they consider their drivers to be robots.
But that's the problem for Uber, isn't it, they are desperate to insist that they don't "employ" drivers, they just "facilitate" getting drivers and passengers together, so they are trying to avoid any of the usual terms associated with the parting of ways between an employer and employee.
They could have used "terminated" but perhaps that has even worse connotations? :)
I don't know about multiple writes to zero, but I learned a salutary lesson some years ago when a friend of mine managed to do a clean install of windows 7 beta over his XP boot drive by mistake (he meant to install it on a separate drive).
So the existing partitions had been removed, and then new partitions created, and the new O/S written to the drive.
Despite that, with a piece of software called GetDataBack_NT which cost about $50, we were able to recover all of his previous partitions and data from that drive, and clone it to another drive, and boot it.
Ever since then, I've been very careful not to assume that overwritten data can't be recovered.
You land with a fire, you get everyone off the plane. You don't sit and wait to see if the fuel tanks burn through before the fire crew controls the fire. It is not safer on the plane. There is nothing safe about a burning plane. The moment it stops you hit the parking brake, switch the engines off, yell "evacuate, evacuate, evacuate" to the cabin, secure the aircraft and leave.
But the aircraft didn't land with a fire, the fire started during the rollout on the runway, so no preparations would have been made by the crew for emergency evacuation. Also, the engine on the non-fire side would have needed time to spool down before you could safely evacuate on that side.
Also, if the crew had yelled "evacuate, evacuate, evacuate" to the cabin, then some idiot would probably have opened the door on the side where the fire was.
Bigotry exists on both sides if you ask me. Yes there are bigots and racists in the leave camp. But to tar just over half the population that way...seriously?
At no point did I suggest that all Leave voters were either racists or bigots.
However you cannot deny that a significant portion of the country voted to Leave based purely on the Immigration issue, and the completely false premise that "we can control our own borders now" as I heard quoted on the radio this morning.
All ours spend their lives sitting on their fat arses in an expensive car, looking out for minor traffic offences
No, those are Traffic officers.
The local bobby is the one sitting in the police station filling out forms in triplicate for a domestic violence offence, whilst wishing he could be doing something else, like be a traffic officer.
There must be a reason for building it - some application that needs this architecture - otherwise ... title?
This outlook on life really annoys me. If everyone had this attitude, there would never be any innovation, no new discoveries, no experimentation.
I hope you will choose not to take advantage of this or any other technical innovation, in fact, I think you should stop using your mobile phone, laptop, PC or whatever it is you use to post on here, and go back to rubbing two sticks together for warmth.
It does look like the driver was a pillock though - he was moving quickly enough to create a bow wave that could cause water to enter and damage the engines of the other people's cars. Some 4x4 drivers have been know to do the same on flooded roads.
Far from being a pillock, it sounds like he knew what he was doing.
To drive through deep water you are taught that you should create a bow wave, as it causes a lower area of water immediately behind the wave, and thus less chance of water damage in the engine compartment, in particular it keeps the water away from the cooling fan, so less likely to spray it everywhere.
In the case of the Tesla, there probably isn't a fan on the front, but the principle is sound.
Well well, you learn something every day.
I'd never heard the term garnished in it's secondary usage, I though it meant to decorate or embellish, so the first sentence confused me.
However, I now know that garnish can mean
"serve notice on (a third party) for the purpose of legally seizing money belonging to a debtor or defendant."
Sometimes, you really wish that researchers could be punished by having to pay back all their grant money.
This is such a "No shit, Sherlock" result. I suggest that most mammals have sufficient reasoning power to work out that one thing leads to another, and that a box which makes a noise might be of interest. Any animal will be curious about a silly human waving something around - after all, instinct tells them it may contain food!
You could repeat the same experiment with new-born babies, and would probably see similar results, but I doubt anyone would try to extrapolate from that that the infants have a deep understanding of physics.
“We are binaries people, and for devices and machines this is the only language they speak, they speak binary,” he continued.
“Who is the consumer?” he asked. “The consumer will not be a human being, it will not be you or me. It will be devices or machines and this is what is called continuous update, this is where the world goes to.”
WTF does that even mean?
“We are focusing on providing a very powerful pipe for binaries. We want to make software liquid.”
Ah, what you need is a blender. It transforms nearly anything into a liquid eventually.
