Uh-oh. Somebody's triggered ...
For those compiling their own kernels, these changes seem to have been incorporated in kernel 4.17.11 and above.
"If they find it in the middle of the GAFA"
From the Wikipedia article:
"The Lexington Herald-Leader described Johnson's nondenominational Heart of Fire church as "part evangelical church, part motorcycle bar"
This Hodgson turd is getting somewhat of a reputation around these parts. For example, he announced, upon Trump's election* (about which the less said the better), Hodgson announced that he'd be ready to send his inmates south to help build the infamous wall.
Sigh. Why do conservatives have to be such arseholes?
I must admit that using Emacs' "M-x unmorse-region" has helped a lot today.
John G Imrie: Since it'd be completely useless, it'd be bound to have an ISO classification. Say, ISO910367812-45bis?
Yep. The only reason we need lawyers these days is to defend ourselves from other lawyers.
Hmmm. I wonder if the price might help deter a would-be burglar? You know, call the company, claim you're the homeowner, and try and get them to give you the password?
Sigh. If only I could upvote that one 5000000 times.
systemd was/is a classic example of what *not* to to when you change a basic OS component.

Are you sure?
What happened to the first three?

... or "Crashlander" (h/t to Larry Niven).
Did they tell him he was supposed to put the mouthguard in his mouth?

Is this a new form of upper-class eyewear? Or somebody's autocorrect going off into the woods?
I just went through that exercise and found the same thing (kernel source 4.4):
> /usr/src/linux$ find . -name Kconfig | xargs grep "select KEYS"
> ./fs/cifs/Kconfig: select KEYS
> ./fs/ext4/Kconfig: select KEYS
> ./fs/f2fs/Kconfig: select KEYS
> ./fs/nfs/Kconfig: select KEYS
> ./init/Kconfig: select KEYS
> ./net/ceph/Kconfig: select KEYS
> ./net/rxrpc/Kconfig: select KEYS
> ./security/integrity/evm/Kconfig: select KEYS
Looks like selecting any of CIFS, ext4 encryption, f2fs encryption, nfs v4, System Data Verification (whatever that is), Ceph, RxRPC or EVM will select CONFIG_KEYS. Which probably means that, if you build your own kernels, simply turning off CONFIG_KEYS is not an option.
Get a job as an installer?
I don't think so. Note the "ANSWER: 0" bit:

Agreed. Any hacker who actually sinks a tinnie of Foster's deserves all they get.
Most likely a conversation with the Big White Telephone.

Look up the connection between Hearst and the Spanish-American war some time.

I think you mean "Brest".
Still, the mistake is understandable. I tend to do the same thing.
Are Swatch still on that "Internet Time" kick (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swatch_Internet_Time)?
And then you'll complain that your tax refund is a day late. Or that the FDA missed a major salmonella outbreak because there wasn't enough staff to inspect everything.
And even if they do find this Holey Grail (misspelling intentional), what are they going to do about all the current crypto systems that they can't crack? Make them illegal?
Yeah, that's gonna work. The horse has not only left the stable, it's half-way across the valley by now.
> What possible excuse have they got for holding the verification codes and card numbers in a database, and in plain text too?
I wondered about that too. Reading the article again, it's possible that the data was captured while in transit.
Still should have been encrypted, though.
> Although Telstra makes their money mostly from mobiles, they - and many others - seem to be unaware how these devices work, or why people need secure connections - especially in public.
Knowing Telstra (having worked for one of their predecessors), I think you're giving them too much credit here. More likely they just don't care.
> and they don't believe at least that Red Hat has the resources to do it (right)
I don't believe that Red Hat has the resources (or even the will) to do *anything* right. The only thing they seem to be good at is producing badly-written implementations of poorly-thought-out concepts, usually by individuals who have the social skills of a newt.
Examples (over the years):
Anything you like -- they haven't got a leg to stand on.
Ah, Western Australia. Lived there for 25 years, nice place, nice people, but they keep electing stupid governments.
Now there's a surprise.
Ooooohhh ... nasty.
> However I think the ME109 was probably more his style and that had a stick
I see what you did there.
If it is indeed a closed system, where do you extract it to, pray tell?
Thank you. I hadn't thought about uniselectors and step-by-step switches in years.
Yes. And that explains why they were the other way around in New Zealand (see above post).*
*Yes, yes, I'm aware that Australia, for one, had it the same way around as British phones. I worked** for Australia's overseas telecommunications entity long ago. They had to add special stuff in their exchanges to handle NZ phone numbers.
** if that's the word, of course.
My wife's car has one of those Onstar thingys that supposedly includes a phone. The thing point-blank refuses to understand me (although, to be fair, I _am_ an Australian living in Massachusetts). Sometimes I've been reduced to flat-out screaming at the thing, to no avail. Lucky I wasn't driving at the time.
The silly part is that all it has to do is recognise numbers from zero to nine, and it can't even do that reliably.
You mean "hAROLD" (well, that's what the tapestry says).
Looks like somebody had caps lock on when they made it.
Ah, Slim Newton's best.
I've been told that the original words were "There were footprints on the ceiling when I got home last night"..
(use your imagination from there on)
Pirate icon, 'cause it's almost TLAP day.
"this whole business of News of the World is a serious blot on my reputation".
That reputation was already so tattered that it would have been hard to find anywhere to put the blot in the first place.
"Call it vengence, call it revenge, its a primal human emotion"
- much like the "primal human emotion" that caused the perpetrator to commit the crime in the first place. Face it, you're no better than they are.
I like to think that humanity should be above that kind of thing. Put the perp away where he/she can't hurt anybody else and leave it at that. The right to live is the most basic human right of all, and nobody -- nobody -- has the right to take it from you.
If you want revenge, you're perfectly welcome to take it out on the perpetrator. As long as you're willing to face a murder charge yourself, of course.
Is that even a word?
No bloody wonder HP's going downhill fast.
Worst movie ever made. Should have been called "Two Actors In Search Of A Plot".
Remember, it was "Truth, Justice AND the American Way". Three separate items there.
I've read that some of that is due to some (FAA?) requirement that stall recovery should involve a specified maximum loss of height -- to the point where some pilots undergoing checks got reluctant to push the stick too far forward, lest they exceed that maximum. True, stall recovery should involve losing as little height as possible, but specifying a maximum height loss gets counter-productive.

What's the difference?
(I can't enter the compo- I'm clueless, though I look forward to finding out what the plane with the asymmetrically-placed hole on its nose is.)
It's an English Electric Canberra, if I'm not very much mistaken. Stuffed if I know any of the others, though.
Thirty gigametres, surely?
