Re: It was great fun
My sentiments exactly, sometimes you just want to get your gun off. No emotional involvement with characters or complex mission profiles, clan stats, nagware for micro-payment upgrades. Just you against impossible odds screaming in the face of death long into the night. If it moves KILL IT!
Given the amount of money involved the cartels have probably bugged the DEA & law enforcement in general for years. Alas slim chance of getting any data on that from a FOI request. Whilst at first this appears to be non-story as I have been on fleabay to get cameras that fit inside coat-hooks, shower heads and my shoes.. oh wait However in a paranoid world where the bad-guys are also tech savvy then a listening device that does not broadcast instead having weeks or even months of internal storage capacity makes more sense. The drawback being you need something bulky to hide it in.
Re: Video Link
I thought the Police Air Operations Manual stated a minimum altitude of 800 ft above the highest obstruction within 5 km of the aircraft when flying at night? The data overlay on the video suggests that the police may of been way below that limit.
I'm not defending the drone operator IMHO he's a pillock but if the police pilot is at fault should they not be reprimanded as well?
FYI NASA just lobbed its Parker probe around the Sun in closest flyby yet: A nerve-racking 15M miles from the surface
Russian computer failure on ISS is nothing to worry about – they're just going to turn it off and on again
For the security conscious whether they be simply paranoid or engaged in nefarious activity one must assume everybody... from the government down to your next door neighbor is keeping tabs on you. Here at work we have an email alert setup that tells us when the MAC code of certain phones appear on the wifi network. Postman, Sandwich van driver, Boss etc.

The IMO is responsible for monitoring ballast water discharge quality. Now with several nations dragging their anchors over the issue and some of those claiming to be compliant having poor record keeping then mandating tamper-proof remote sensing could be on the horizon. Perhaps even remote control of the ships entire ballast system...

Don't tell mission control...
Skylabs unique floor system also gets several mentions with hilarious descriptions of the cleat quick step. (The official technical report was said to contain so many swear words it was redacted to just read: use velcro next time)
Web-dwellers who don't use Tor...
Web-dwellers who don't use Tor...soon will. There in lies the eye opening rub of the matter, can the TOR network cope with the influx? A quick check at time of writing reveals only 877 exit nodes and perhaps more worrying, lets be honest here TOR is not a place I would suggest anybody should go looking for pr0n.
