Is SatNad attempting to be Microsoft's Elop?
Charged under Section 1 of the OSA and not section 3....
No Cthulhu icon so this one will have to do ===>
As Cassini dives through the clouds I wonder if the local inhabitants will look up to see this intruder and once they find out where it came from will they turn to singing "a number of tuneful and reflective songs on the subjects of peace, justice, morality, culture, sport, family life, and the obliteration of all other life forms."
With or without frickin lasers?
They are great whites - are they even allowed to exist without the frickin lasers?
All very well and all hail the new Reg units, but what do you take us commentards for? We don't need no frikkin trigger warnings!
In addition to shifting Ruhl out of the company, HRD said it will be updating its end-user license agreement to "modernize and renew" its customer support policies.
Presumably to ensure that the EULA sanctifies a repeat of such action in the future?
Both can potentially be a pain in the arse.
In the case of Windows 10, if it is not, then you are possibly using it wrong.
>> I did start one yesterday because this whole thing is a farce.....
And at least one person appears to have signed the petition while holding a contrary opinion.
I suddenly felt very old recently when, in conversation with a junior colleague, I recalled the first time I used a PC with a whole *1 Mb* of RAM and being amazed at the extra memory (all 300-odd Kb of it) would make.
Said colleague admitted to his first PC having had a mere 512 Mb of RAM.....
> I don't recall stromatolites being mentioned... did I miss those verses?
They mustn't have got a place on the ark - just like the dinosaurs.
was that they haven't already being doing this (or so they say)
Some months ago the name of someone I worked with for a few years turned up in the Facebook suggested friends list.
We lived in different cities, worked for different employers but worked together on a couple of projects for a common customer of both our employers. This was all pre-2008 so generally before Facebook became widespread outside of university campuses and definitely before Whatsapp.
I wondered how Facebook made the connection as there were no common "friends" either. Then I realised I still had his number in my phone contacts. I've never had the Facebook app on my phone, but I do have Whatsapp installed and had assumed that Facebook had got hold of my contact list via Whatsapp (this person is not a Whatsapp contact either).
So if they are only now talking about sharing contacts, then how did Facebook make the connection? Spooky!
urgh... accountants are the worst for inappropriate Excel usage, the horrors I've seen *shudder*
When the only tool you have / know off is a hammer everything is a nail.
Am I the only one who thinks the last one looks a bit like an outline map of Great Britain?
>> Haven't we got an extra £350million a week sloshing around somewhere now...? Ahem.
> No yet, we have to leave first, see icon.
And hasn't it already been promised to the NHS?
I don't know of too many Uranium-contaminated water sources, but I would think that Mercury would be an outstanding target.
Or crude oil. Think clean up after an oil spill or tanker / drilling-rig disaster.
The Nine Billion Names of God
And it was ever thus: do what I say, not what I do.
If you expected them to be telling the truth when they said "there's just one"
I can understand the GPS thing and getting the email address, but how do they get the license plate picture?
By the time the mark realises that the attachment does not contain an image of the license plate it is too late.
As I read through the article I had a growing feeling that it would end with a plug for a "learn to be a bug hunter" course of some sort. It sounded more and more like one of those "work from home for just a few hours and make xK £/$/€ per month/week/day" posts you come across in some forums.
He's a VC - he was never going to want anything else.
Given his ringing endorsement, presumably what he looks for in an applicant is the ability to discuss a random edition of The Economist cover to cover rather than the quality or viability of the project requesting funding.
To reach Europe - and avoid Syria - the team flew from Amman, Jordan.
But they don't appear to have driven in Jordan. The list of 19 countries, presumably in chronological order, goes straight from Egypt to Turkey.
>> SOP runs it through the database, and - horror of horrors - 5 matches are returned.
The cynic in me says they'll pick one of the 5 and keep schtum about the others.
>> If they caught then the "oops we forgot" or "there are no clear guidelines" ploy is used.
you forgot "no one is above the law(*)" and "lessons will be learned".
" Even when unauthorized access to the database was detected by the Astros and user passwords were changed, Correa simply logged into the staffer's email account and lifted the new credentials."
Seems to imply that when the employee left the Cardinals they did not suspend / delete his email account (assuming it was a corporate account) or remove it from all distribution lists (if it was a personal account)

Hey! I'm supposed to be the grumpy one here!
Sure nothing's perfect and yes Five Eyes won't be losing any sleep over this. However having seen successive governments falling over themselves to demand more powers for the securicracy, when we occasionally see one apparently declining to do this, it does seem like something worth mildly exclaiming over.
On the other hand, if you were just practising your Bah Humbug, you better get a move on - only 12 days left!
A government that's willing to tell the "security" types where to go?
"IT staff traced it to Ford's computer and, on searching the hard drive, found a spreadsheet detailing more than 450 email accounts **hacked** from over 200 victims."
Since when did phishing and blackmail get counted as hacking?
And it's not just replacement cards. At least one UK card provider issues add-on cards with the same number and CVV as the main account holder's card.
"Niteworks"? With a name like that do they belong to the Seamstresses Guild?
"...having shot up from eighth spot to fifth since the 2016 survey."
In the real world it is still 2015 yet not only is the 2016 survey out but there has been another one out after that from which this progress is being reported?
<fx> whistles softly and backs away very slowly, </fx>
When the Daily Wail repeorts that reading the Daily Mail gives you cancer and buggers house prices. Until then, they will have to pry my bacon butty from my cold dead hands.
Either the gentleman was tired & emotional or he was warning the speaker to be careful or he would be denounced as an enemy of the people.
> One suspects that the sale and supply of josticks and whalesong CD's around Google secret hideout HQ spiked during this, erm, exercise.
Looking at the results, I suspect this is one case where the joss stick & whalesong budget was under-spent.
Gets the government of the hook - "we aren't blocking any sites"
Puts the onus on the ISPs. You can bet your last Rupee they aren't going to spend any effort verifying whether the sites hosts kiddie pr0n or not.
Result: the ban goes in name only.
Treble lassis all around!
They were just checking what was under the kimono.
Have had it for about 18 months now. After a string of flagship phones with one exception (Orange San Fransisco), don't see why I should go back to paying a bomb for a phone. Quite tempted by the new versions, but my current phone is still going strong so it's nice to know I have good options when it starts to flag.
What about "Donut fore sake me...."?
That's ironic as ** the lack of ** a French Letter was what got him into this mess - allegedly...
If there is one software patent I would welcome it will be a way of getting rid of all clickbait (not just from the free content ad network)
> My main gripe with Lync is it lets useless bastards across the globe know I'm at my desk
1. Assign those of your contacts that you trust to "Workgroup" and check the settings for the permissions on notifications from members of Workgroup.
2 Status = Do not disturb.
3. Get stuff done.
Past POTUS or greeting card company?
"This video is unavailable" - but if you meant the one from The Great Dictator (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX25PDBb708) I couldn't agree more. Should be mandatory viewing for all who would rule.
Of course! Have a rec.
> ...........the Phillip K Dick reference.
um isn't "gripping hand" => Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle?
Thinking of your about town courier/delivery: OK self driving delivery vehicles = no driver. But you will still need someone to get (usually) the right boxes out of the back and hand them over at the appropriate addresses.
Don't worry, they'll probably break down your door at 5 a.m. and arrest you for "hacking".
Some years ago this comment wouldn't have come to mind or, if it did, I would have used the joke icon; but now this one will have to do until we get a Kafka one.
