I actually do not see any problem with this, The FBI doesnt have access to all the data, what they have is the ability to enter the DNA from a crime scene and search the DB with it finding matches or familial matches to help locate criminals. Whats the problem, it just means they can pinpoint someone who commits a crime easily even if they have not had their DNA stored by the police in the past.

this update didnt remove malwarebytes like the last few did,
It inserted a win 10 settings page between the speaker icon on the task bar and into the playback/recording config settings.
My friend had a broken internet protocol which stopped him getting online for a while.
It did disable all my speakers and headsets putting control into a VB Virtual Cable for everything including Communications.
Another of my friends has obtained the Win 7 game pack to play MahJong but every update uninstalls her MalwareBytes and the games pack.
I had this problem a while ago and its a vunerability in Spotify,
I kept seeing a speaker device available on spotify and it would randomly turn on my spotify and play at 3am in the morning the device is called spotiamb2.0 and it is a remote device that is actually a media player and if you even accidentally connect to it - they can hijack your account and play whatever they want, I had great fun selecting random annoying songs and playing to that device until they went offline, But it took spotify deleting all my devices and resetting my facebook login to be a direct username / password login to stop it.
I had one the other day, she asked what i was using to access the internet, I explained i was using an android tablet, an iphone and an amazon dot.
She then tried to get me to go to w3 validator then validate to any website - the default will always show errors even for google.com. she said that was evidence that i had a virus causing problems and i should pay to get it sorted.
This took over 40 minutes and then i just said "you know what you can do? Crawl back under whatever rock you crawled out from under, I am a computer security expert and know you are nothing to do with BT and are trying to scam me out of money. Thank you and Goodbye. I then hung up.
2 minutes later I had a man call me back and tell me to take my phone and shove it where the sun doesnt shine.
I live in the middle of slough,
My whole street has no Fibre available - not even ADSL CN21
I get Max 2mb Down 128k up
BT openreach say they have no funds to upgrade it , and the council will not let them upgrade the cabinet.
The cabinet next to me in the other direction has a DSLAM.
They claim also that there are not enough subscribers on the Cabinet to be cost effective to upgrade - there are 2 schools one side of the road meaning only half the subscribers on the street.
Nice to see that they can provide 80mb down on one street and 2mb on the next
of course, Ingress is based on the exotic matter created at CERN which opened portals into an alternate dimension, Niantic Project discovered that this Exotic Matter (XM) is pooling at pieces of art and human historic sites, XM is thought to be evolving humans to the next stage of evolution (Enlightened) and some think XM is being used by aliens from the other dimension trying to control humans and so are fighting back (Resistance)
I have seen many an issue with the IT in companies i have worked for, Once I was tech support in a company that was infected with the macro viruses that spread through excel, word, etc (back in 1997) and the antivirus found the virus and changed the file so it would not be run (changed startup.dot into startup.vir) unfortunately Office didnt look at any file in the folder just ran ALL files no matter what they were called. - the infection persisted even though the IT dept thought it was all safe.
Another company I worked for we had a huge code base and the key file in the system we were not allowed to touch, - 15000 lines long over 150 lines of import statements at the top, and it runs lots of high traffic websites in the uk.
Colin Baker was the worst,
Sylvester McCoy was in my opinion one of the best, the character was perfect, the Script writers were pants.
I loved the interplay of Doctor Versus Ace that personal interchange made that incarnation.
On another note What about the Other Doctor? Peter Cushing also played the doctor in Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.
Well i have 3 machines all updated to win 10
1. Dual monitor PC (NVidia Card) Q8800 processor - Monitor problem until i re-installed the nvidia drivers. running fine
2. Single monitor AMD A4 quad core (packard bell) with Nvidia graphics - running fine, quite nippy actually
3. i7 Laptop with Nvidia / intel graphics maxed out mem and such was the fastest machine i had now takes 10 minutes to boot!
Way to go Microsoft.
I have been with talk talk for over a year and i think not one outage (at least whilst i have been at home)
the only annoying thing is they keep calling me up to try and sell me a better package, - i already have their top broadband + minimal phone and normal tv (i dont use anything else)
Unless they can provide GB network to the premises I can't get any better - Tuesday they called 12 times trying to sell me more services (in a 3 hour time scale)
Re: Where did the rural internet money go?
When i lived in Ifold (next door to plaistow) we only had 0.5mb down broadband from BT, and we tried to contaks Kijoma, It was a small business and we were told, Sorry there is a tree in the way and that hill over there blocking line of sight to the tranciever, Its essentially somone nearby had a microwave link at their house so if you could see it you could have it. and they also took 6 months to respond to sales calls.
Where did the rural internet money go?
Of course BT and openreach are being paid by the government to give broadband to rural villages, Except where there are too few people on the exchange so they say its not worth upgrading the exchange to even provide adsl,
For instance Plaistow Surrey/Sussex border near Dunsfold (where top gear is filmed)
has a max speed of 14400 bps on dialup if any internet providers still offer dialup services.
This is quite hard to complete though, I worked out that to eat well for 2 Days will cost me 79p + 9p
Which is half a pack of (insert supermarket name here) Value Spaghetti + (Supermarket Name) Value Chicken in white sauce,
Cook the spaghetti up,
Drain and add chicken in sauce,
Put other half in fridge for tomorrow.
So that would give me an extra £1.12 for other stuff..
Most students and low paid worker live on less than £1 for a day.
The report police option is designed to show where lazy police are sat doing speed traps and waiting to jump on normal citizens as a form of raising funds.
In america the police report option will just allow people to find the local donut shop...
You don't report the location of a police car travelling down the street, just that crafty cop who is hidden behind an ad hoarding waiting for the miscreant speeder to go past doing 1/2 mph over the limit.
Just one thought, If this stops scraping of data off websites, one of the largest companies on the internet will lose their business model...
How do search engines compile their indexes? - they scrape with bots.....
Scraping is illegal - Google is out of business.
So if a site allows Google to scrape via a robots.txt then anyone can scrape as long as they follow the rules on the robots.txt file.
I don't get what all the fuss is about, Back when i worked in a Taxi Office when we had a call we would use Microsoft Mappoint to calculate the rate and tell the customer in advance.
There is 2 types of Licensed Cabs,
Hackney Carriage - Can be hailed on the street usually has a light on the top which is lit when available to be hailed.
Licenced Minicab - cannot be hailed but has to be pre-booked (ie phone the cab office/ send an email / use an app to book the cab.) Then the minicab will come and pick you up off the side of the street.
It has always been this way. it is just with the app it is easier for the customer to book a "usually cheaper" minicab without having to call directory enquiries and get a local number. The Hackney Carriage drivers have no real argument except that because the mini cab firms are now using modern technology to offer the customer a cheaper service they are losing out.
how about something a little more elegant, install Oracle Virtual Box or similar onto one of the machines, and install Kali Linux.
Once running you could ssh into it and even give it it's own IP.
It has tools that can Monitor and Scan all manner of Connections.
Or if you had a machine you could put as a potential firewall then you could always install a copy of the FREE firewall software Untangle.

Well if you look up on wikipedia, it links to a document naming colours from 1955 so you can call a colour champagne as it predates the champagne name ruling.
ISCC-NBS Dictionary of Colo(u)r Names (1955)
So that means as lots have mentioned Green Party etc may try to limit our use of that colour that Grass is..

I used to do re-enactments in the bunker, staying there at night and sleeping in the bunks.
We used to do the Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962.
It is scary to think that on that day Russian bombers were coming down the north sea and if the secret talks had not succeeded in america the missiles in Norfolk would have been fueled and WW3 would have started.
But that information is not commonly known with the standoff at Cuba being the more widely known incident.
Microsoft really doesnt like developers
A few months ago a dev i know wrote an article about using Cloudy TFS to do Windows Azure Continuous build and unit testing, however it used Cerebrata Cmd Widgets and some other 3rd party tools, Microsoft contacted them and said "this looks great can we publish it on the Microsoft MSDN Newsletter" So they said yes and then had to rework the article to remove any and ALL references to InteliJ Resharper, CmdLets and some other stuff.
So they certainly don't like developers using their brains and doing something else.
Well when will the government force BT to give people normal broadband, For instance the Plaistow Exchange in Surrey/Sussex a stones throw from the Top Gear Test Track, has not even got ISDN and are stuck using 14400 Baud Dialup,
BT has said that the exchange is too small for upgrade and will never get LLU or ISDN let alone Fibre.
