Now not happening.
Perhaps the judicial review of the decision to grant John Warboys parole, will discover that OASys was used, because I can't believe any human could come to that decision.
How about they are disabled by default, and the browser prompts you when a site wants to fsck with your Bluetooth?
I'm sure there are bot nets to hire which will subscribe to your channel and 'watch' as many hours of video as you like.
I didn't get around to registering until the 9th of January, but had no issue with the servers being overloaded them. Yes there are a few issues getting the HMRC ID (which is different to one you may already have self assessment tax) and starting the process, but after that it's hell of a lot better than many government sites, and I had both children registered within half an hour (would have been longer if my wife hadn't been there with her national insurance number memorised).
Pai would only blame crooked Hillary's email server for sending the alert, and say this would never happen if all emergency communication systems were handed over to big cable.
I notice some of their testing shows patched machines actually got faster. Please pass the salt.
"The Register cannot find a Microsoft response in the thread, a reasonable lack-of-reaction given many of the complaints accrued over the weekend."
If Microsoft schedules patches to be installed over the weekend, they should damn well support users then too.
Damn, beat me to it, I was a late starter at Mint 12, and I'm running 18.3 on everything from an ancient Atom netbook to a noisy i7.
The most important security measure isn't an alarm, it's good physical security - and actually using it. Doors with good locks and windows with security glass are only any good if they are closed and locked.
I'm making a Raspberry Pi system them will remind me as I'm leaving the house if I've left any doors unlocked or large windows open. It doesn't have to be hack proof, or need backup power, and if everything is locked up and the worst still happens, the house insurance will cover it.
The BBC Micro had a CAPs lock and a Shift lock. Didn't seem odd a the time as it was my first micro, but very confusing if I try to use one now.
Ctrl-Z is better than Ctrl-C, at least we can hope someone does a fg in the future.
There's an old saying that a person who represents himself in court* has a fool for a client.
*Even though this isn't a court.
I give Microsoft AI's 8 hours (because it's not as good as DeepMind) before it learns not to use Bing.
Why not cut the bullshit about a computer that computes a billion parallel universes at the same time and admit that not one real problem has been solved with a quantum computer, and probably never will be, even without Microsoft jumping on the bandwagon with another supposed language.
Who didn't install Firefox and immediately change the default search away from Yahoo! ?
Glancing at a flight radar sight, there are half a dozen aircraft over the south east of England right now doing more than 250kts below 10,000ft. Most are around 280kts, so 300kts would be a better test.
Did they have cards for "Buy off the attacker", "Cover up the breach" and "Lie to regulators" in the CEO pack?
Maybe AT&T will jettison CNN in return for approval.
NoScript allows you to whitelist and blacklist domains.
If you haven't already, add all of these session reply sites to your blacklist.
Another one falls for the blockchain bubble.
The StrongARM was made by DEC and included DEC caching technology from the Alpha.
“We need a regulatory environment that moves away from lower pricing to encourage investment in the network,”
Given the continual above inflation increase in the line rental changes from all Openreach sellers, that excuse isn't washing with me.
[Edit: as Mikel asks;] What flavour of Pi's are they using? Full Raspberry Pi 3B's, Zero or more likely compute modules?
It's come too late for my disastrous house move; PlusNet were booked to come and install 2 days after moving in, I noticed they had the address wrong, so instead of correcting it they cancelled the appointment and rebooked it for 2 weeks later. The engineer missed that appointment and rebooked another for a month later. I had to drag out of them that the engineer claimed the house builders had not signed off the wiring - but I knew they had from the site manager. After the engineer came it still took 8 days before ADSL was enabled, and then it didn't work due to the new installed master socket being faulty, which took another week to sort out. At least the upgrade to fibre went through on the claimed date 3 weeks later, but was capped to the wrong profile, so it was another week before it was up to the full 76/19.
In all it probably cost me over £250 in 4G data for the dongle and tethering on the phone, and all I got was a refund of £56 for the line rental and broadband fees during the time I had no service. Nothing for the stress and frustration of dealing with incompetence on an industrial scale.
If you want to see real techno-tribalism, just look up some of the pre-web usenet flame wars (BEWARE: not for snowflakes).
The only thing that is disabled is automatically triggering an unexpected action. A button will be available to trigger the action, if and only if, that is what the user wants to do. No censorship involved.
Unfortunately the chip has no 32 bit mode, so won't run RISC OS, which still contains a vast amount of 32 bit ARM assembler. There are also a lot more important issues which need development time than porting to ARMv8, so I don't see it happen anytime soon.
It could run on the Centriq 2400 via emulation though, leaving 47 cores available to the host OS.
A number of proxies will make all TLS connections appear secure, and hide issues with actual site itself, such as having invalid certificate. This can make browsing less safe.
It would also insure that it was 100% free of millennials, who never venture outside of Facebook/Twitter/Snapchat.
Or why not get an independent 3rd party to analyse both sets of source code? There are plenty of tools to automate the process these days.
@Voland's right hand well if your coding is anything like your comments, no wonder its ending up in ->
Rolling codes are normally encrypted or hashed in some way these days, so an observer doesn't just see 1,2,3 being sent over the air.
If they can detect a private phone number in a tweet, why not do so before it is posted and warn the sender it's against the Ts&Cs there and then, rather than banning after the event with a less than useful explanation?
Unfortunately this system is going to capture some of the less desirable behaviours displayed on the road by people driving:-
* Unnecessarily large SUV type vehicles
* Rushing between delivery jobs and parking inappropriately
* Driving vehicles they don't own or have to pay insurance on
I'd rather see the trail carried out on vehicles the driver owns, pays for and cares about, doesn't involve blocking other people's driveways while making a delivery, and doesn't think traffic rules only apply when dealing with a vehicle bigger than theirs.
You might one day be happy to move out from mommy's house, but some staff have families and children in education, who can't immediately relocate to a country over 900Km away.
Being hit by an asteroid would be vastly preferable than listening to Chris Evans in the morning (or any time).
The last drive I saw with a linear actuator and belts moving the head was a 40/80 track floppy.
Raising children in the modern world, is one big guilt trip. You try to spend as much time with them as possible to give them love, support and help with their learning. But with both parents having a full time job, you never feel it's enough, and then feel guilty about using other things to keep them occupied such as the TV or computers.
What better way to perform the protracted and resource hogging task of scanning every file on the computer for something of interest, than to hide in plain sight under the guise of an anti-virus application.
Whether or not Kaspersky were responsible in this case, you can guarantee one such application is doing it somewhere.
There is very little difference in the IR signature of 3 cats and 1 man, or even two very hot cats after they have been chasing each other.
Non IoT alarm systems also charge an even larger subscriptions - I was quoted £49.60 a month for someone to check the picture that gets taken every time one of the cats jump on the table and sets off the movement alarm. They say should it ever be a burgler, the police will be rushing around immediately to catch them in progress. I suggested the police were more likely to phone back in two weeks with the crime number for your insurance claim, and they should carry on fitting the alarm to next door instead.
My idea is for a giant space sponge. It would need perhaps a km sphere of aerogel to capture both large pieces of junk in similar orbits, and small pieces at large crossing velocities. It would then use a small thruster to gently de-orbit, and create a nice firework display.
I think El Reg is referring to the Chinese test of an anti-satellite missile against one of their defunct satellites, which almost doubled the amount of space junk up there. The US was also planning on downing one of their malfunctioning spy-sats, but I can't remember if they went through with that.

There is always the option of using a 2.5mm jack, which became common when pre-touchscreen phones got really small. All existing headphones will work with an inexpensive adapter that can remain attached to the headphones.
The difference between Bing and Windows Phone is; you can force anyone using a Microsoft product to use Bing by default, but you can't force a Phone user to buy Microsoft by default.

Do not pick up anyone who has fallen. They may need to be stabilized. Picking a victim up can cause further injury.
Do not try to move a victim unless there is an immediate threat of more harm if left in place.
Nadella was correct in his immediate response.
Jeezus! Does anyone on El Reg forums have children?
It was a supposed to be a baby (toddler) that had fallen over, they are learning to walk and fall over all the time without hurting themselves. They'll cry, but all you need to do is pick them up, give them a hug to reassure them, and put them back on their feet. Their parent will normally do this, but may be struggling with other children/shopping/buggies etc, and need a hand.
