Yeah, it once found that the worlds best hacker had a 192.168 address.
Must be true though, NCIS said so.

It happens in plenty of countries. I was in Barcelona and booked via booking.com (so not through a travel agent etc) and the hotel receptionist very kindly handed me a piece of paper in English which stated what they wanted and why (usual email, address etc). The passport number was listed and it explained that Spanish security services wanted to know about foreign visitors. Was almost like the hotel was explaining what they want and what they had to ask for and why.
I assume your passport number is handed over by default if you book through a travel agent.
I also assume the UK does just the same.
If they had been monumental steaming dumps I would have laughed and upvoted it, but Obama actually was pretty good and well received around the world. Neither of them made enemies of their allies, start trade wars, separate babies from parents, tear gas immigrants, bend the law to suit his needs and tear up international treaties on short range nuclear weapons, climate and the Hague.
Not to mention he (and his policies) has been laughed at twice by the UN.
Wow, bet you wear a T shirt that says "I would rather be a Communist than a Democrat." as has been seen at Trump rally's of late.
Sadly however as most things these days are online, education now needs an online presence so you are in favour of stopping kids learning it seems.
And communities are now online enabling a great deal of freedom to isolated people or those who have limited mobility like pensioners, terminally ill. You know, keeping in touch with the outside world so they don't feel lonely. (probably no money as they have to buy health insurance)
People who are lazy, yeah coz zero hour contracts and minimum wage doesn't exist in the US. Menial jobs are so well paid it seems. They earn so much they can afford proper broadband. (Obviously only democrat, because all republicans are rich. Or perhaps republican and they are always skint as they have to buy more guns because the redneck NRA demand they must)
So that's old people, kids and those who do menial jobs (That you probably try and step on) that you don't like in your moronic rant.
Does seem stupid that leaders of the 3 main(tory, labour SNP) parties voted to remain but still we plough on for a minority vote to leave. (36% isn't a majority) despite every head line now ringing doom and gloom from business, banks, MP's and common sense.
Ahh the power of stubborn British idiots.
What kind of weird world does he live in where you send your better half powerpoint presentations to talk about a remodel of something. Do they not live in the same house or talk to eachother?
I like every other male in the world lets my wife make decisions about kitchen remodelling without my input, except a "Great dear!" now and then.
But privacy for personal users only, business can't get it. Hmmmm me thinks it isn't upto scratch on legislation then. But I am cynical.
The awesome destruct testing at Samsung you suggest might be happening brought us the exploding NOTE 7. So lets hold your the sarcasm until they hit the shelves and then start to degrade.
This top class testing also includes recalls for microwaves, washing machines and fridges.
Wow, haven't heard such tosh in a very long time.
Social media is being turned against conservatives??? The biggest right wing nut job - Trump is using social media to very blatantly lie ("They were laughing with me") when discussing being laughed at by the UN. To name one of the many "Actual news" stories he seems to not understand. To a point the UN has warned him about his rhetoric.
Fact is conservatives don't like the fact that social media is proving just what a bunch of dangerous nut jobs who love rifles more than life they really are. Just look at the immigration kids being taken from parents when Trump denied it was happening and it was made up by liberals.
Greed has ruined social media but the messages of truth that do get out just prove it is a vital tool to stop dictators from taking total control. (Iran, Russia, Syria, Saudi, Turkey, China and the US)
But as Trolls go, well done. Have a cookie.
“builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some”
Releases contain bugs that might be painful for some.
Last night my "metered access" button to stop downloading crud had miraculously switched off and during a game it crashed to desktop to tell me updates were installed and restart needed.
Being able to uninstall apps at my leisure including dial home stuff would be nice as it means my gaming rig wouldn't turn into a toaster every few months.
It won't stop me hating MS any less or stop using Linux however
I imagine the target is the public. Because in the back ground and in hidden meetings NATO will be ramping up counter measures, dusting off old plans and drawing lines in sand - again. And at the end of this will come the big questions about nations budgets and defence spending.
That needs people to see the threats that are there, which thanks to twenty years of Russia not being dicks has meant money can be spent on other useful things and happy times.
But there is a time coming soon that we may need to turn away from roads and schools etc. And once against recruit soldiers, build ships etc. For that the public need to be on board.
Difference is in the twenty years of peace the EU has become a very different beast of cross working and helping eachother. So NATO by default will benefit by closer working EU nations, compared to 20 years ago. (Just don't mention the orange trump clown, 'Hunt' doing his best to alienate our allies and the May / Boris / Farage Brexit disaster)
Do you understand how contracts work? You sign up for something, you commit to it and you pay the money in. If you then decide to pull out you can't expect all sides to just give you back your money etc. Unless it is in the contract which doesn't look to be the case.
If you signed a contract for a car, agreed to pay a loan to the finance company for ownership and continued use of that car. Then decided you didn't want the car agreement and left, they won't pay you back what you put in. And you will lose the car because you still signed up to pay the money for it.
I think the OP might have been suggesting it is quite hard given where would you go. From TSB to? RBS, Natwest, Barclays and HSBC are all rubbish at keeping the app working. So the list of really good alternatives is thinning.
And Lloyds / Halifax systems are only as good as India can write for them so I fully expect them to fall over very soon.
But google are honest like that. They are openly telling you that some phones won't upgrade and the latest may get a couple of updates if you are lucky. They have said in that past some flavours will not jump upgrades and some phones won't even touch some upgrades.So you basically know what you enter into when you get one.
Also the argument is and always has been the manufacturers that are the problem of bringing updates in a timely fashion, not google. They are the ones that are slow to bring to market any updates.
They don't lie about it to customers.
Caveat - I think Google is appalling for a whole heap of other reasons.
Australia had a mass shooting.
They then banned guns.
There hasn't been a mass shooting since.
The UK had a mass shooting
We severely restricted and banned gun ownership.
Gun shootings massively decreased.
Worth a watch, the gun control piece by Jim Jeffries. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rR9IaXH1M0
Only the US feels the need to try and keep dangerous weapons in the hands of people as some kind of legal thing because obviously nothing has changed in the last 200 years. Only the US feels the need to have militias. (WTF does a country that powerful need for unregulated militias anyway)
Everywhere else at least rethinks things when bad happens, and accepts that some things have to change.
It does appear that people who voted leave (trolls aside) don't and won't see any of the negatives that are coming out as fact, they insist it was a majority vote (with 72% turn out the vote was nearer 36%, 34% in favour.) they insist it will be better (despite Liam Fox, Rhys Mogg and even Boris saying its not going to be great) and seem to ignore all the issues around companies leaving, massive staff shortages in areas like farming and the NHS as something that a mystical british work force will appear to fix.
But a couple of good demographic charts show most of the voters to leave were old, most of the people to remain were young. So old people voted for something that will have be lived with and picked up by the next generation who didn't want it. What a selfish bunch the "leave" people are.
It is like a religious path to oblivion for them... Very much like Trump supporters.
... And remember, Africa is our salvation. 49 nations from the bottom end of the world economy will save us. With yet to appear trade deals to replace the global power houses.
Am I missing the point about banning Pro Iranian? What about Pro US? I might have missed a law that said Iran shouldn't use social media to push its policies to the world. The UK does? What is the difference.
Or are these accounts just posting stuff that is basically Anti US. A lot of people don't like the West, especially the US (And because of Trump this now includes much of the west) so again what are these posts saying that means they get banned for pushing their own view? Will FB pull the BBC because they showed the massive protests against him when he came here? Or the stupid things he does with immigrant kids and how the EU, Canada and Mexico are no in a trade war?
Do FB pull anti china facebook accounts for pushing the one nation state? (Bet they don't as they would lose the lucrative advertising money.)
But after seeing the insider TV show on C4 about what facebook actually do I have zero faith in them doing anything other than a PR stunt..
The show clearly showed that 'Muslim go home' is banned, but 'Muslim immigrant go home isn't' even if the language is worse. And if a page has more than a certain number of followers it stays despite what they post because the revenue is to great.
We are very different from 10000 years ago. We know a female from a village in Australia could run faster than usain bolt while "Jogging" on a beach. (from the stride distance of preserved foot prints)
Since then we have gone backwards in terms of strength, fitness and our ability to process food stuffs, illnesses even certain weather because we have clothes and shoes and medicine to help. Which in turn has let us survive as a weaker form, live longer etc.
We were also much much shorter, a few hundred years ago, never mind 10000. Just look at Japan over the last 50 years to see how changes in diet and lifestyle can impact height. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5811819/
Today we have AI, robots and a massive obesity problem because our diets and lifestyle are very different. You think in 10000 years it won't have changed us again.
Assuming we are alive in 100000 years as a species.
I hate that phrase with a passion. There are plenty of legal things I would like to hide from anyone else. But numbnuts in parliament and do gooders think its fine.
I argued this with my MP about whether she should sign the snoopers charter and she came out with the same stupid half arsed argument. (she voted for it in the end)
Bereavement, redundancy, bankruptcy, terminal illness, domestic abuse victim, rape victim, marital troubles, criminal convictions to name the ones I can remember from my argument with the MP.
Why should anyone else get to know about them? (She had no answer either.)
Sad times for Oz.
For minuting a meeting outside of work, where I didn't have a laptop. the kind of club meetings in someone elses house or a rented room in a town hall or pub etc. Didn't need paper, and it was quick, much quicker than finger typing. Then I could just send them via email to a proper PC for writing up.
And as for Jobs, didn't he say you didn't need two mouse buttons amongst his other stuff you don't need?
Vmware workstation 12. Download as fast your internet will allow. Install I think is 4 lines of text might have been 5.
Time to create is about five minutes of a few sliding scales and some numbers then next next. Then depending on your install it takes as long as it did with a disk. For windows 7 I think mine took about 20 minutes to go through the normal install wizard.
Once setup install time is a double click and watch it load, maybe twenty seconds for windows 7. This is on Ubuntu on my dell XPS 13.
Sounds like you had a bad experience but VMWare workstation 12 also passes through 3D graphics, much better than virtualbox.
Careful. The TSA have a master key that has to be able to open any locked luggage that enters the US. So they sell locks that are TSA approved, meaning the lock will fit the master key. (I assume if not they break the locks)
I read an article that actually said "Don't worry, only TSA approved staff have access to the key." :)
So America wants a skeleton key because they already have one for physical luggage.
Well its a really good job we are not putting up walls and barriers to allow all those people that want a job in a suitable industry to come here. Or building in steps to really slow down their applications.
That would be a really stupid idea for any government to do right now.
Mines the one with the "currently" red passport in it.
Actually probably much higher than you think if it is education or NHS or Banks etc. where legacy systems mean they get wiped for Windows 7 (or even XP.)
Not sure on your downvotes as I know every PC and laptop we get in a large organisation is wiped for windows 7 image. Windows 10 just ain't ready for us.
To be honest I only tried it to have a look and after a couple of months I just couldn't find a use for it in my normal routine.
I had the ubuntu laptop and the VM of windows was for a few steam games when away from my main rig in a hotel.
I did like it but just never used it. My next laptop may well be that direction however.
Confused. My Ubuntu server has raid and hasn't been an issue for about 3 years its been running. (Basically a NAS)
And my Dell Ubuntu XPS 13 laptop runs 3 VMwares, windows 7, Kali Linux and I tried an El Capitan VM once. All using the VMWare workstation 12 which is fully supported in Linux. It ran all three at once - because I could.
However my ubuntu laptop was ubuntu because I tried windows 10 and was officially told windows 10 once installed can't dual boot because of UEFI (I was asking for the ubuntu install disk) So probably because of Dell not windows, I had to send back and get a new one.
