Re: The more I listen to the EU...
Why is everyone so surprised that the biggest problem with AI is an all-but total lack of intelligent people trying to sell it?
Saw that coming a mile off, I did (and I didn't need AI binoculars to do so).

That runs overnight, and cycles through all the "bad" passwords, trying to log into the account of every user in the organisation.
If it succeeds in logging in, it can do all kinds of nice things to encourage the errant user to repalce the password with a decent one.
I'll leave the definition of "nice things" up to you lot -- mine is far too evil.
• Google is an American corporation.
• Americans* just don't get satire, irony, sarcasm, sardonicism, etc.
• Anything an American* doesn't understand is considered as a threat to his ability to bullsh1t his way to the top, so those who do understand it are treated as enemies.
• A man is judged by the quality of his enemies.
El Reg must be a pretty damned good guy.
* The ones from the USA, that is. Canadian, Brazilian, Guatemalan, etc. Americans exhibit no such disability/psychopathy.
"after some dismal acquisitions like Nokia"
It wasn't a dismal acquisition; it was a very good one.
It was what they did with Nokia after the acquisition that was a total fuster-cluck.
And their long-term visions of "One Windows!" and "Mobile First!" are the causes of the total cock-ups that are the windows-8 segment of windows 10, the effluent interface, the crippling of desktop functionality in MS office, etc, as they rushed to give every machine (including those with multiple 24" plus monitors) a smartphone UI.
"They also claimed a sample was still super conductive at 77°C but they could not find the critical temperature because it was higher than the limit of their equipment. The equipment mentioned in the paper works up to 400K (127°C)."
Sure, but that's not the weakest link in their equipment.
ipads don't do well above 70°.
"The vast nuclear furnace in the sky will be visible between five forty seven a.m. and eight twenty two p.m. Viewers are advised to take necessary steps to shield themselves from its carcinogenic rays."
Be fair: the Sun is only the world's second biggest cause of cancer -- oxygen beats it by a mile.
But that's probably our fault, for letting Frenchmen into recording studios.
What a thoroughly daft thing to say.
When the UK leaves the EU, it will stop being part of the EU, and will therefore have as much right to take part in the EU's decision-making and governace as Russia, Patagonia, and Mars have.
Conversely, the UK will not be bound to accept any governance from the EU, Russia, Patagonia, or Mars.
How you can interpret the UK's desire to interfere with the decision-making and governance of the EU as "the EU trying to have its cake and eat it", I have absolutely no idea.
Your interpretation is so upside-down that I can only assume you arrived a it under the table.
@ John Brown
True enough, but I fear that the problem is becoming more one of self-aggrandising organisations trying to control access to and use of "free" software, when it is the developers of the software who should have the loudest voice.
I.e. they should ask the devs whether they want to pursue a case, before trying to up their personal kudos prosecuting it.
So what you're saying is that even though hundreds of thousands of normal, innocent people's lives were ruined by the greedy few who caused the recent housing crash, those who caused the crash are saints, because what they really wanted to do was bring down the price of housing, which was going too high?
They screwed billions out of ordinary Joes as an act of kindness, because the Joes needed their lives to be ruined, right?
The argument you put (not very lucidly or well, by the way) has been put time and time again -- but only ever by people who want to get rich at the expense of other people.
Greed is /Never/ a good thing, because a way has never been found to stop it becoming excessive -- the more you get, the more you want; and the brakes don't work.
Well, I just hope that the next crash -- which might well be caused by people who read your words and take them to heart -- doesn't leave /You/ as one of the people who loses his home, his livelihood, and his family because of it.
No. I take that back.
I hope that the next one /Does/ get you. Maybe that way you'll learn.
