They should have checked with Reg Barclay ...

"After only a year NASA reported that Spirit's drill's teeth had worn away after grinding through five times as much rock as expected."
... in contrast with much of today's consumer electrical goods which are cost-squeezed such that they fail immediately after their warranty period or rated number of operations expires - any longer and it would be a failure of the design ...
Does anyone know whether US office buildings still try to out-macho each other with colder air-conditioning temperatures ?
A tolerable 18C should be reasonable in summer ... or they should look at some passive cooling techniques that let hot air flow up out of a duct in the roof and bring in cooler ground-level air.
Yes, I too went up to the cockpit, on a BA flight to Milan in the early 90's - looked very cramped for the crew !
The pilot even tilted the plane so we could all get a good look at the Mont Blanc glacier.
I couldn't help thinking that all schoolchildren should have that kind of experience for their appreciation of geography ... the 'ripples' in the regions on either side of the Alps was a clear indicator of side-effects of mountain-building.
Aside from fixing the vuln, just asking users to re-authenticate if adding a filter should block this - the user will then be alerted to something dodgy.
Rather like with online banking when adding a new payee, and getting asked for some password characters.
PS. TYPO (homophone) - "slight of hand"-> "sleight of hand"
For a start, Nominet should automatically protect all ".co.uk" domain names for entities registered at Companies House, and only permit them to be newly registered by the entity concerned.
The ".ltd.uk" option is not good enough because a) they only apply to companies, not LLPs; b) no-one seems to use them.
And yet people who have had tissue samples taken for medical research get protection via the Human Tissue Act, and there is outcry when it was revealed that some Sellafield workers had their organs checked for radiation issues.
Extract from Notes on the Act - see mention of "cells":
"... Part 1 is about consent. It sets out the requirement to obtain appropriate consent to carry out activities regulated under the Act: storage and use of whole bodies, removal, storage and use of human material (organs, tissues and cells) from the bodies of deceased persons, and storage and use of material from living people, for purposes set out in Schedule 1. ..."
I gave up on PH when they said "we don't have any deep-pan bases in" - erm, don't you just roll them out ?! Obviously not. Get 'em from the lorry.
And then comparing the floury pizza base I was given with my recollection of pizzas in Italy.
Why does no-one in the UK use thinly sliced ham like in Italy instead of that chopped up spam ?
Sorry, no Linux angle there ...
Bet this policy wouldn't have pleased Bill Clinton if it had been in place on his visit - didn't his minders famously 'collect' a pub beer glass he drank from to prevent anyone getting his fingerprints or DNA ?
Also bet Stella Rimington's colleagues wouldn't feature on the DB either, neither would Philip Green (et al) or any HRH .
Until the cost of a train fare comes down below (the cost of a new car plus tax and insurance) / 365, I think many of us will be unable to afford the green option.
I worked in Belgium a few years ago and their trains were on-time, predictable (like E4+1) and inexpensive. Sadly, from the green viewpoint, I had to fly home each weekend, since Eurostar still hasn't made it past London .... although this has been promised since 1994.
What was different this time was that I could continue to access email right until the account was "deleted".
Usually the account would go inaccessible, which would then require a 'retrieval' operation via the FreeserveXXXWanadooXXXOrange website.
Have now fired off a "Data Protection Act" email requesting my message folder contents be sent to me. After all, doesn't the Govt require ISPs to hold data for some period before deletion ?
Monster should have acted immediately this became known, and quarantined all their systems. They should then have modified their login mechanisms to thwart an automated attack (type .gif image text) and required bona fide users to change their passwords.
Users with compromised logins should have been notified and required to AV scan their systems.
