My understanding was that they do not look into your person account without evidence pointing towards its misuse. Ie: They cant go looking into personal accounts to gather the initial evidence of wrongdoing.

£1080 for a 2 day ticket?!
Use Applocker. I've just set it up in our environment.
It helps if you set up event log forwarding first and run the applocker policy in Audit mode for a couple of weeks so you can monitor what would be blocked and then add them to the whitelist. I did it this way and received only a couple of calls for false positives once the policy was switched over to enforce.
My company put in it's "social media policy" that all employees must hand over upon request their usernames and passwords to all social media accounts. I'm told 99.8% of the company signed upon the dotted line except for 2 who refused. Those 2 would have been my brother and I. A quick chat with legal and pointing out the relevant data protection aspects and we had personalised policy documents which excluded this specific clause. Legal even agreed the terms should have never been included in the first place and would be removing it for all future starts.
Just because some drone in HR copies and pastes something into a contract does not make it legal or enforceable.
My understanding is that the punishment for refusing to hand over encryption keys when demanded is just as bad as the punishments for what they think they will find. Thus; what benefit is there to encryption other than hiding crimes they weren't already after you for?
They have internal storage to record when and where the taser was fired for compliance and potential later use in court.
Source: I was the desktop tech lead consultant during another police force's Windows XP migration
Multiple reasons for the long delay:
Internally the police use alot of bespoke software, either written specifically for them by a 3rd party or their own in-house devs who have long since retired, left or been made redundant. Try finding a download link to Windows 8/10 drivers for a taser. for instance.
All of their builds need to be signed off at the highest security level, ditto for any changes then made. It's a process of producing a build, getting it signed off, getting it tested, having a change requested, making the change, getting the whole build signed off again etc etc.
I don't know about MET however in my force they were also trying to implement hot desking at the same time, so we also had to engineer and deploy full data/environment/application roaming at the same time as the operating system upgrade.
And finally; why not go straight to Windows 10? Because the contracts for the XP migration were all signed years ago before 10 was avaliable. It's taking this long just to get on to 8.1.
Re: Once you send your data to the cloud
Until you get a court approved eviction order, and even then you are responsible for storing the property and then billing the former tenant for costs.
Not paying rent does not stop a tenancy in the UK.
My first day working in IT..
My new manager said "I have one rule; dont play games, you may as well get out a board of monopoly and sit there playing it at your desk".
A good rule imo. I shall admit to browsing El Reg during office hours but it came in handy yesterday when everyone was scratching their heads why a load of our 3rd party sites had gone down only for Reg to report on GoDaddy DNS dying.

No, he doesn't mean like a live television service. He means access to a live television service AND the entire back catalog repayable at any time. Stop trying to compare the two difference services
Re: Said it before, will say it again
And yet you'd need ALL of those to then still only be able to access 10% of what you can get through Kodi streams.
Re: "You're out"
"By UK you mean England and Wales, right? It may indeed be what's left of UK in a few years."
By UK they mean UK, as indeed that's how the votes were tallied. There was nothing incorrect in stating that a majority of the UK voted to leave.
Re: 2 years?
- But perhaps it's the reference to 52m "idiots"?
Though there is no English crime of "spoofing"
The BBC article claims: there is no English crime of "spoofing"
So did he commit a crime under UK law?
Re: Don't mess with evolution!
Lures can only be placed on pre-designated 'places of interest'. These tend to be statues, important buildings or a large variety of pubs. The game's designers have already stated that natural features are not marked in this way
What a childish response from a business representative on their own website. I suspect that had FD posted similar replies of "Dont like it, dont play our game" on their website.. El Reg would have been all over it.
Got drunk on my last dat of uni
And bought a one-way ticket to Australia. Best drunken mistake I ever made.
Old tactic applied in a new way
I work for a large online search provider and we have several sections of fake data on our listings so that we can track and prove where out data has been scraped. It's been going on for years, similar to how an un-released movie script will have slight variations so if one copy does get leaked they can know exactly whos copy it was.
Re: What's wrong with 'unelected.uk'
What's wrong with being in unelected in a position of power? Nevermind.
Re: People shouldnt be above the law
Or the grammar Nazis :)
Why should foreign companies operating in foreign countries be bound by our laws? We're not America.
People shouldnt be above the law
Especially these vigilante keyboard warriors.
I work desktop admin for a very large firm and its amazing the amount of crap which just seems to magically appear on our sales peoples laptops. This isnt games or cat videos, its various macro-stuffed excel documents or plug-in loaded intranet sites which have been pushed out via email and are now mission critical and requiring urgent IT support despite the first we know about it being when a helpdesk guy wanders over and asks wtf this new 'app' is.
As an atheist and anti-royalist, I always felt very uncomfortable during various services and sayings whilst in Cubs/Scouts.
Re: Take a look at a rip-off bar menu
"In the UK, such places are required to display a menu with prices outside"
Do you have a source for that? Not disagreeing with you, just interested if it is actually a law or council policy anywhere.

Re: Pain in the rear to build
No good when corporate polices require bitlocker ;)
Pain in the rear to build
Currently sat beside a Surface Pro having spent almost 2 days now trying to get some form of corporate image on it with MDT. Absolute pain in the ass as it has no ethernet port and only 1 usb. Forget trying to build it from a standalone USB, requires FAT32 so no >4gb WIMs. Having to boot from a boot wim loaded with usb ethernet converter drivers going through a USB hub. The hidden partitions add further complications.
Apparently the latest fireware supports PXE boot.. but of course you'll need the official ethernet adaptor for that.
The maths never adds up. The 'winning' team on these tasks usually make a few hundred quid for 2 days work (researching/making then selling). Split this between the 6 on the team and they are earning below minimum wage each.
Honestly, they'd be better off if they all went and worked at Mcdonalds for those 2 days and then pooled their earnings.
Also agree with the earlier poster about Sugar's split personality. One week its all about listen to the focus groups, the next it should be totally disregarded etc etc.
Worked for me..
My last job offer was from a recruiter finding me through Linkedin. In the end they offered me the job but I declined as my current company offered to beat it if I stayed.
I wasnt sure if it was real or not at first, but it is, along the style of 'coppers' on channel 4 i think a few months ago.
And on an interesting note.. just glanced over and my phone which has just this second lit up with a text message about the compensation im owed from my accident i didnt have. what a coincidence :)
Typical of so many companys: Free sales line number but then premium rate for any customer/technical support.
I've taken to just calling the 0800 new customer sales line and blagging my way through an internal transfer to the support teams.
Blizzard done the same
Blizzard once asked me to send them a scanned image of my passport for 'security confirmation'
Must be a rare case,,
Started my current (and first) job in IT without any qualifications or real experience. Hiring manager said they would put me on training courses and pay for the exams etc.
2 years later and I had 2x MCITP and an MCTS with training towards other areas as well. My employer has just signed an enterprise agreement with CBT Nuggets giving all It staff access to their entire library as well.
Now if only they'd give me the pay grade rise to go with the new qualification levels :)
Re: How would they know?
Just because use of something online is 'voluntary' does not mean it can break the law.
Use of various child abuse websites are voluntary and yet I doubt many would argue it should be a case of "If you dont like it dont use it"...
Stopped using the messenger when it tried to be too many things to too many people.
I want to log on and easily chat to those online. I didnt want to be spammed with photos, news, shopping offers and facebook-style status updates from contacts.
Re: Right decision for the wrong reason
How about the people that dress up in nazi costume fancy dress? Ought they all be extridited to Germany where such actions are illegal?
How about me currently living in sin by sharing a bed with my unmarried partner? Better pack us off to Dubai.
If a crime is commited in this country, then it should be charged, tried and punished in this country. If someone does something which is not a crime in this country then they should be safe from extradition.
In your example, would you rather such a person be extradited to a country where they would then be tortured and killed? I wouldnt.
Right decision for the wrong reason
Finally the right decision is made, however for the wrong reason.
It ought to have been blocked long ago as the crime was committed from in the UK and so should have been tried in the UK.
Used to queue for hours
to get into a music festival. Gates opened at 6pm, but sure as hell each year we were there at 8am. The music didnt even start for another 2 days but the queueing to be one of the first a half-flooded campsite was all part of the experience. We had an excellent time with 8 of us crammed into a 2 man tent pitched on the pavement at the front of the queue passing round the bottle of JD.
Sometimes queueing is all part of the overall experience.
Re: Gaming is a very niche market.
I agree; not everyone plays games on their computer. However in my experience, nearly everyone does play some form of game.
Im an enterprise admin for a large company and from our inventory software we can clearly see that everyone from the receptionist right up to the CEO have games installed on their PCs, MACs and smart phones.
Your image of a WoW playing 16yr old gamer locked in his bedroom is outdated. Take a ride on the London underground one morning and look around at the investment bankers and business analysts playing angry birds on their phones. Gaming is mass-market.
Re: USB 2.0
Our pXe build and DART environments boot up pretty quick from 2.0. But then they are pretty small.
Dont even try it. Took 20 minutes to get to the desktop running a Windows 8 to go USB boot.
Re: Guild Wars
My GF and I both play it, with the curtains open and the glorious sunlight pouring in. Then we go out for a couple of drinks with our friends in the evening.
What a shame that you and your lifestyle are incapable of managing to handle the complicated nature of both having friends and being able to play an online game at the same time. Best of luck for the future.
Why is this news worthy?
Could you not..
Just run a local virtual machine and publish the app through that? Either by actually booting up the local VM or using the Windows 7 function to pass the App directly onto the Win7 desktop.
Fortunatly in my company we have the Devs still around to re-write any of those tricky browser based apps, even going as far as making them 64bit compatible. Started development on the Windows 7 image in November, now at about 80% rollout completion in the UK. The biggest slow-down has been users moaning that they will lose their saved music/photos etc which we're refusing to migrate.
