It is El Reg, so hopefully sarcasm. PW managers are the biggest risk out there. At least one of the big ones has already been breached a couple years back and the others all have huge bullseyes on them.
Never understood the mindset that a single point of failure is a somehow a good idea.
It's a decommissioned coal power plant. That smokestack is still one of the tallest structures in the country at over 700'.
Just out of frame to the left is a cement factory and another Toronto landmark:
The Ashbridge's Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Not to worry though. You'll hardly notice over the smell of the harbour. As part of Lake Ontario, you'll also note that even in the sketch nobody's swimming.
Sounds like it's going to be great place to raise a family!
...if it's not connected to the internet.
Forget the cost of new hardware/anti-virus. What's the cost of employees wasting time?
I've got several consistently underperforming help desk staff on final written warnings for watching YouTube playing browser games for hours on end. Now they'd rather stare off into space than use remedial training materials to become competent.
2 of them have even gone to HR to complain about how unfair it is to expect them to do what they're paid for!
The cheapest solution is to run 2 networks and have most devices have no outside connection.
You flew out of Toronto? You know it's not a long drive to fly out of Buffalo right?
Not just lower surcharges, but the ticket itself is always at least $100.00 CDN cheaper and 1/2 the price for parking.
Probably less total travel time too given how much faster customs is at the border instead of the airport.
The minimum wage everywhere is always $0.
If government regulation prevents an employer from hiring someone without paying them more than they're worth, they don't hire them at all.
This is why jurisdictions like Portland see a stampede of entry level employers for the exit when they drink the 'living wage' koolaid.
Yelp isn't a viable business in the long run, so Talia needed to leave anyway. A shame someone who thinks she's should be paid lots of money to do media for a reputation company, wasn't bright or savvy enough to realize trying to publicly shame an already reviled company could only impact her reputation, not theirs.
Doesn't even need another network or country. Guess what your provider does when you call them to activate your replacement phone? They delete the old IMEI to add the new one thus removing the block. There is no master list of blocked devices. Only purpose of blocking is to keep them running up your usage bill until you get the new phone.
Wireless internet is always a bad idea for a whole host of reasons, signal attenuation being one of the main ones. Even if you were to put up an antenna mast tall enough to clear the trees around the house, you should still expect it not to work for much of the rainy season and work poorly when it's just humid.
When private groups redistribute money, that is charity, when government does it, that is socialism.
The former organizations can be extremely helpful and effective, the latter is always inefficient and wasteful (and not just when it comes to redistribution).
Mental exercise - what if, over a decade, all social programs were phased out, all tax rates were lowered proportional by the amount spent on them, and replaced with mandatory donations to charities of the taxpayer's choosing in the same portion of income.
I'm Canadian, but largely similar for driving/vehicle purchase habits.
You can stop right there for a big part of it. It's a 16 hour drive at highway speed to my sister's place (and much, much longer in snow). With several more hours past each other to the East/West borders of the province we both live in. Hell, it's 100 km just to get across the Toronto suburbs.
Yes there's a lot of city folks buy gas guzzling SUVs either as status symbols, to feel safer in a larger vehicle or just to be higher up and see what's ahead in rush hour traffic. Outside the major centres though, anyone who drives a Smart car is a moron who's not going anywhere once winter comes.
I'll attempt to paraphrase Mr. Smith.
Money is a unit of measure.
Unfortunately, while the value of the unit was slightly variable in his time (coin clipping, etc.) in the modern age it is extremely variable. Whereas 340 years ago individual crooks clipped individual coins, now the Federal Reserve clips every single dollar on a daily basis. Economies of scale! (No I'm not arguing for a return to the gold standard)
"That's like Barack Obama asking me for a loan."
With US federal debt an unfunded liabilities closing in on $125T I found that quote amusing.
Still, while I'm skeptical overall, there is some merit to the argument that LHM may want investors because they're looking at a spinoff as it would be very much non-core business. They'll just hold onto the patents for any custom materials developed.
Investors and speculators are both shareholders but their interests are often mutually exclusive. There tend to be fewer speculators but they're usually louder and more often the ones being catered to.
