IT Angle

It wasn't It.

I am scared of clowns already since I saw 1988 an episode of Dr Who (The greatest show in the galaxy). Well before the TV Series IT in 1990. (There we have an IT angle!)

I have not laughed that hard for ages.

We have a "standard software" at work with an user interface, that never made sense to me, until now.

Who done it?

Who killed the geckos?

Did some earth bound lizard kill the space lizards on arrival?

Or are the real overlords the fruit flies, who had to dispose of the llizards because they found out ...

why are there so many fruit flies on my window...

No need to run. Please stay calm.

Re: FUD

Exactly what I thought when I read the article.

I was highly surprised to see this text, without any real arguments, in theregister.

The usual article by Chris Mellor about storage devices are much more useful and informative.

Re: Place your bets

The odds are way to good for cuba.

Where may I place my bet?

Anonymaus Cowark

most likly countries

Most likly countries would be some which have a limited infrastructure and which are high on the list of evil countries. Therefore China and UK would be ruled out. How about North Korea, Somalia or Ecuador?

Re: The Last Secure Option

That is not sufficiently secure either since the telco have boxes that allow to snoop on normal landlines aswell. If you have to send a note write it encrypted on paper and sent it with a pigeon or raven.

Oh, shoppin’ HELL: I’m in the supermarket of the DAMNED

Anonymaus Cowark

Where do you shop?

Seriously, I would stay out of that shop if they do not bother to implement a proper fast checkout.

The normal checkout is probably not much better and a real torture for the employees.

At IKEA I prefer that Fast Self Checkout because it enables me to get in and out (with furniture!) in less than 10 Minutes. ... And nobody has time to stare at me or to look what I have bought.

Re: @poopypants - Disconnecting a Cell Phone Battery Quickly.

I am pretty sure that you would get legal problems for "retrofitting a tiny power switch to cell phones"

They could make a case because of modification of a radio device or for "obstruction of an agency proceeding" (prevention of listening in by the NSA)

Anonymaus Cowark

Clearly a case for the ministry of truth!

Girls had always been highly interested in computer science.

Think about it

Who invented FLOW-MATIC (the mother of the COBOL language)?

Who had been first computer programmer (on Babbage's Analytical Engine)?

Accept the truth.
