I'm glad my sarcasm sensor is working today. Have an upvote.
... you mean people in other countries get paid for their lunch break?
if the drill remains extended for more than four hours?
Of my two computers running Windows 10, my desktop PC updated with no problems. I was very surprised given the problems I had had successfully completing the previous upgrades. And this is with Avast and Classic Shell installed. No missing desktop issue. Yay!
I have not yet allowed the update on my Laptop. Keeping fingers crossed for when that occurs.
Since he assumed you could magic him a charging cable, he probably also assumes you can legislate backdoors into encryption algorithms that only the "good guys" have access to.
"The attack is believed to have been operational since at least January, 2015"
"If there is one bit of good news, it's that Orangeworm and its Kwampirs trojan are not particularly discreet. The malware tends to perform easy-to-detect activities, such as pinging a long list of command and control systems and trying to copy itself over network shares, once infected."
So, if it is so easy to detect, why are we just now hearing about it over 3 years since it has been operational?
I am wondering why it is news now. The Starbucks on the boardwalk on Mission Beach had a Prop 65 warning placard already as of June of last year..
BTW, there are Prop. 65 warning signs at the entrances to Disneyland as well ... One of my tourist activities was to photograph all the Prop. 65 warning signs we encountered. It's such a silly law that pretty well exemplifies California.
To be precise, a cell phone is a phone that relies on cellular communications, as opposed to a satellite phone, which does not. Both of which are "mobile phones". I also have a wireless phone in my house, which also could be called a "mobile" phone.
This is possible because semiconductor structures on silicon can wear out due to metal migration based on current densities and temperature. This causes their switching characteristics to change or degrade over time. Device Mean-Time-To-Failure (MTTF) is typically characterized using the arrhenius equation where higher device temperature results in shorter life.
In a CMOS transistor structure, most power is dissipated when switching logic states. Power translates into heat. As operating frequency is increased, the transistors switch more often in less time causing more heat, which will accelerate wearout.
It used to be the characteristic life of a device could be a 100 years or more, but with operating frequencies now in the GHz levels and device feature sizes shrunk to pack more transistors into less real estate, the design margins have shrunk to the point where characteristic lifetimes are reduced to a decade or two and greatly shortened by overclocking.
Yes, I am a reliability engineer.
You did. But so did everyone and everything else, so relatively speaking, you are unchanged.
Shouldn't that be Uraninium or Plutoninium?
This is the typical time that the meeting actually starts after the meeting leader will have finally gotten the conference room computer booted and logged into, the video connection to the projector worked out, gotten through all the problems with the Webex connections to offsite participants, etc.
One reason we haven't adopted a dog out of a shelter is because my wife is allergic to most breeds except the "hypoallergenic" ones. With a shelter dog, you may not know what mix of breeds it is, so there is a risk she could be allergic to it.
Oddly, she is not allergic to cats.
Actually we have both, so its even more confusing.
That is correct. I lived in the area at that time. Governor Carey offered to drink a glass of PCBs to show how safe it was. If I recall correctly, he was no longer Governor after the next election.
Maybe the motherboard manufacturer will have a BIOS update that you can download. Check your motherboard manufacturer's support page.
I also have a homebrew PC with a 4 year old ASUS AMD motherboard. Since the motherboard was still be sold by ASUS a year ago, I'm hoping to see a BIOS update come out for SPECTRE, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
It's that one time when your routine changes that will alert them to call in the black helicopters.
The creepiest sensation I ever had was when I was on travel last year and I entered a hotel room for the first time after checking in. I heard music emanating from the bedroom space. I thought maybe the front desk accidentally booked me into an occupied room. I approached cautiously and found the room to be empty, but the TV was on, playing the music and displaying a personalized message to me as a welcome from the hotel chain.
That's called a Priazzo. I'm not kidding.
There must be something wrong with me. I'm beginning to understand amanfromMars 1.
Nice to see you have our back. Not!
Makes me feel even better that I've used exclusively AMD processors for my personal builds over the last 20 years!
"Peter Madsen ruled fit to stand trial, but denies allegation"
So... he denies that he is fit to stand trial?
That's the magic! The main-framed sized computer to run this is located in a parallel universe so you don't have to carry it around with you.
So if Coin-Hive is so regretful that this is being used nefariously, why haven't they removed access to this?
The code snippet shown is pulling the java script down directly from Coin-Hive.com.
Don't they have a new version that won't run unless it gets specific authorization from the user accessing the web page? Considering how the old version has been abused, they should only be providing access to this new version. Why make it easier for the crooks?
It's just a mynah glitch.
Mine's the one with the cracker in the pocket.
This is exactly the purported reason for coinhive in the first place. However, the developers naively did not consider that it would be abused by every malware miscreant on the planet.
They no longer support coinhive and now have a fork that will not run without user authorization, but the genie has been let out of the bottle, the horse has left the barn, the chickens have flown the coop, Pandora's box has been opened, etc.
"IBM seems to be very well placed in the early development of actual quantum computers....that could leave IBM sitting on top of practically infinite possibilities."
Heh, heh, I see what you did there!

Anyone can get this for a poultry sum.
This is exactly what we have been using in New Hampshire for as long as I can remember. Paper ballots where you fill in ovals (like those standardized tests) with a special felt pen. The ballot is fed into the machine where it is optically tallied. The paper ballots are kept for audits/recounts.
When the polls close, each town gathers up its machines and town trustees tally and certify the votes which then get reported to the state voting commission.
I don't understand why other states make it so complicated.
I think I'm going to start using that, as in, "Well I'll be a baffled boffin".
"Holy baffled boffins, Batman!"
"The real issue here is that their entire system can be defeated by ***either**** covering the drone with aluminium foil and using rubber bands to secure it so it won't be able to connect."
Syntax error. Still waiting for the 'OR' condition. Or is covering the drone with aluminium foil one option and the other is "using rubber bands"? In which case, exactly how do you use the rubber bands in a way that make the drone so it can't connect?
Would be to change the laws so that if a company (or the government) has such a data breach, no matter what the reason, they should be required to provide the effected individuals with fraud identification, protection and insurance FOR LIFE.
This only providing one year protection crap is completely useless.
"3.9Watts = 1 eel"
A thumbs up for that. Count it as my vote for adoption of this new standard - though it may need to be scaled up for a full size eel. Get back to your research Mr. Catania and post back with your results for an average-size adult eel.
As an EE, the old joke was to send an intern down to the stockroom to get a Write Only Memory.

Actually, that would be battery. Assault is just threatening bodily harm.
For some reason my Windows 10 installation always fails when attempting to update to a new edition. I started with the free upgrade version that installed over Windows 7, so thinking that was the problem, I did a complete clean install last winter to get the November Update. But all subsequent attempts at updates have failed since then.
Maybe this is a good thing.
On the brighter side, the normal security updates are working fine.
So the Brits didn't invent sarcasm?
Does that mean they will be able to turn my monitor into a camera?!?
First the microwave, now this!
Their software is going to think my face looks like the sticky side of some black electrical tape.
The last version of Picasa is still available on FileHippo. If you still use Picasa (as I do), I suggest you download the install file for safe keeping.
"One cannot draw on IrfanView."
Yes one can. Edit > Show Paint Dialog (or hit F12). You're welcome.
Ethereum - derived from Ether. You know that imaginary substance that was believed to bind everything together?
Ethereum = imaginary currency = truth in advertising, unlike most of our physical currency systems. ;-)
Besides, Unoptanium was already used.
Too bad its Washington State and not Washington D.C.
I'm all for allowing self-driving vehicles in Washington D.C. If they do run someone over, it will more likely be a politician, lobbyist or lawyer!
"Tapes"? - How quaint.
If you want to apply a car analogy that is closer to this, I would suggest looking at the wide-spread defective air-bag problem. An embedded defect that is not dangerous until the air-bag is needed to protect the occupant.
And yes, my 14 year old car is part of the recall and is to be fixed for free.
I always thought that once you joined a class action, that you could not sue separately. ...Unless California law is different. You are normally sent a notice and are given the option of not being a part of the class action. From the article it sounds like Mr. Smith was a member of the class.
Just get an older Android phone for which updates are no longer being provided. Problem solved!
