Seems like they deserved each other...

...I'm hoping both sides lose.
...so, in the words of Ms. Rice-Davis, he would say that wouldn't he.
My observation is that, even with massive subsidies from the tax payer, the train service isn't what you might wish.
Time will tell of course, but my money, if I had any, would be on the autonomous cars. Imagine this, you go to work in your car. When you get there you go into work, then your car goes to work as an autonomous taxi, returning later to take you home. After dropping you at home the car works the taxi night shift. I don't think The Holborn Effect will stand in the way of that.
Mr. Assange renounces Australian citizenship and becomes an Ecuadorian citizen. He is then hired as an Ecuadorian diplomat. He then leaves under diplomatic protection (remember the Iranian Embassy fiasco). Problem solved! I should do this professionally!
... the end run is a government run white list because the 'blocking didn't work'. Once the need for a white list is is established a charge will be made to be accepted or retained on the list. Like other similar schemes the charge will be insignifiant at first. Later it will be turned into a source of revenue for the Exchequer.
Alfred Russell Wallace, of evolution fame, won a bet, proving the world is round. He never collected though. Never trust flat-earthers...
...on the desktop since 2014!
If Bill was still in charge this would have been stamped out yeas ago....
For those unfortunates who don't know what Tony is going on about:
<wanders off snapping fingers>"Ooh, bar, ooh bar, ooh bar"
Or would it. Here, for example, is a bug that affected me back when I use Win 7: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/13a7426e-1a5d-41b0-9e16-19437697f62b/windows-7-64bit-corrupting-altering-large-files-copied-to-external-ntfs-drives?forum=w7itproperf
It's hard to say how long the bug existed for before being found, but a fix was a long time coming, in fact I don't know if this was ever fixed. It's part of the reason I moved to Linux.
@Carter - really?, this again? Surely even you can recognise that this is a case of 'many eyes' finding and fixing the problem more-or-less instantly.
Amen to that brother.
...Congressmen and Senators too, so I don't see the Gubmint bending over backwards to help out. In fact I see a Chapter something-or-other bankruptcy down the road. No doubt the astonishing bankruptcy laws of the good ol' USA of America will be used to protect the guilty. See Federal Mogul vs The People of Armley for more details of how these things work.
Plastic Padding* is your friend. It stops the likes of Stuxnet in its tracks.

... it's STILL not as good as version 12...
I thought activation keys were OEM image specific? No? Enquiring minds need to know...
...what next ElReg, 'crushcat'?
...like a lot of Linux user I migrated to Mint during the Unity years and I'm more than happy with it.
Err, that notable rain free country the Netherlands. Probably by Hans Lippershy. Check out the Wackpedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_telescope
...to save us from the the oppression of corrupt and lazy politicians. About time too.
Oh Carter, here we were thinking you might have something original to say. Maybe next time...
...Trump et al....
Noscript baby, you know it makes sense.
...Even now I'll bet she's shopping around for an 'expert' who agrees with her views...
Not much of an improvement in troll value however. 2/10 Must try harder.
Yes indeed, and also Carter advising how this problem occurred...
Think of something new to post in Linux bug threads.
... Is there any way for them all to lose?
It seems music just won't die.
... An attractive girl get the 'job'.
>how much xBASE code is still out there, live and being maintained?
Round my gaff? 100%, thanks to Harbour. Cross platform, 32 bit and 64 bit. Perfect Clipper compatibility. What's not to like. Harbour deserves to be better known.
...dBase II -> dBase 3 -> dBase 3+ -> dBXL -> Clipper Summer '87 -> FoxBase Xenix -> MS FoxPro Unix
... Mercedes dealer.
"How hard can it be?" etc
CEO: "We're brilliant at whatever-it-is we do, so we'll be brilliant at security."
Everyone else: "Brilliant, you're a genius. Trebles all round."
...as someone once said.
It makes you wonder what the computers at GCHQ and the NSA run... Anyone know?
Cambridge dear boy, Cambridge.
Sorry about topic drift here, I've been having an 'interesting' time with Win 7 just lately.
... A few days later the Fifty* were at his door accusing him of being a pedo...
* Five Oh, our outstanding police service.
... MicroHat shirley?
The British security services will now have to make sure he never comes back.
No complaints from me. As usual YMMV. In the past I used Hostroute/Nameroute but they were taken over by Vidahost and they seem OK but more expensive.
Whether they are or not...
I would have said that was very poor under the circumstances. I assume MS recognise this and have a plan to eliminate the option to turn off telemetry.
The US gubmint gets a special build I understand, but outside the US I think governments will have to look at the alternatives. I was most surprised that the Chinese government embraced Windows, in spite of developing their own OS. Most Odd. What can it mean?
... My guess, they aren't revealing the full story and/or are lying about the details using the 'parallel construction' approach.
... where will it all lead?
