Re: Java deserialisation vulnerability
Serialization is just a tool to turn an object into a binary blob, and vice versa. If you don't trust the provenance of the blob, the de-serialized object needs validation before use.

Large stars burn faster, much faster. Very large stars can last as little as a couple of million years. So as a early second generation star it will have formed from the debris of large first generation stars. This star won't be very big. The previous candidate for oldest star is 0.8 solar masses, according to wikipedia.
You haven't fully experienced the joy of Star Trek unless you've loaded the code from paper tape onto a venerable OS (MAXIMOP on the City of Birmingham treasury departmental mainframe) and then played on a teletype (with your own paper) in a converted school broom cupboard.
Now I think about it, having a direct connection from a school to the council finance system seems slightly suspect nowadays. It was a more innocent time.
Shell out the dosh for a proper business product. You get support and SLAs and all that boring but useful stuff that you don't need for torrents. Plus when it goes down the engineers tend to turn up in hours rather than days.
Here endeth the smugness.
Of course I no longer practice what I preach. Not since the pub got free wi-fi.
This article now appears to have been removed from the hardware page and search index.
Searching for stocking in El Reg doesn't find it. Google however has lots of results, and you can have a very productive afternoon reviewing them.
BTW, apropos of nothing, didn't this august organ's strap line used to be "integrity, we've heard of it"?
If you believe that Sky could do what the BBC do and/or would lower their prices, I have a bridge you might be interested in.
Sky are in business to make a profit for their shareholders. Your part in that as a viewer is to give them money.
Regarding this article, it's not so much about the BBC as an organisation, but rather how it doesn't agree with the climate change orthodoxy as espoused by parts of the register. The BBC bias reflects the majority scientific view, and it would be perhaps better for them to be more sceptical at times, but if their bias was that of the minority view their editorial policies would be severely questioned, and with good reason.
