All the same
It really seems to me that there are really no people in Parliament who are actually any good at anything.
Both sides of the House seem to actively select for members with little ability to think clearly.

Ah, but, it's Common Carrier rules.
If they are filtering messages according to the content, then the whole "We're not responsible, Guv'ner, 'cos we just show stuff from other poeple" getout no longer applies. They seem to be attempting to do filtering where it makes the popcorn gallery shut up, but "not filter" when anyone attempts to pin any responsibility for the content on them.
Smart meters are for "demand-side management".
In order to reduce the cost of standby generation for intermittent renewables, the idea is to modulate down demand in times of low supply.
Some of this will be by paying industry to shut down. Yes really.
But the other side of it is to cut domestic usage. In other countries, "load shedding" is used, i.e., power cuts.
That's not politically tenable here yet, so instead there will just be variable pricing. We will implement our own power cut when the smart-meter-display-thingy tells us we are paying £5/kWh.
This has been quietly admitted in certain quarters.
What I find funny is that publishing the "private" mail was seen to be so detrimental to the Democrat cause. Surely, if they were the best choice for Government, even their private emails should not cause offence.
In other words:
"If they had nothing to hide, they had nothing to fear"
So the "teachers" that have to "teach" the Comp Sci course do it from text books, and videos. They are forced to cheat in the exam as the pupils are not actually taught anything meaningful in the classroom.
It would be possible to go on a recruitment drive for CompSci teachers (there's enough software engineers out there who don't pass the age test for most jobs). But solving the problem (instead of hiding it) costs actual money.
TFA has the "marketing" justification for HT. The actual reason was that Windows ran so badly on a single-core processor, because there are too many blocking,non-pre-emptable processes in the UI thread. By having a second "fake" processor, it allowed parts of the UI to be responsive when other parts were locked up.
Now single-core processors are no longer sold for Windows, HT is no longer needed.

I find that it's the worst kind of "well it works on my 28 inch monitor, what are you complainnig about?".
Set the window to be normal sized, and the picture is mostly obscured by the text!
So, you redirect all calls that are not from an address book entry to voicemail.
..... aand now your voicemail is useless, as there will always be loads of spam calls in it. You will never pick up a real voicemail, as your VM box is always full.
So, the Private Equity "investors" (ha) borrow a shed load of money to buy a business. They then do this what-should-be-illegal reverse takeover shenanegans so that the loan required to pay the original owners is now on the business balance sheet, not the "investors'".
Business goes under.
Don't the banks or other lenders lose out mightily?
Who fills the hole where the money was?
So why is it so bloody awful to set up? It seems almost deliberately difficult to add a service log file to its search list to detect probing activity. And the default actions do almost no blocking.
Set it up right, and the bad guys will soon give up, as your service becomes invisible to them.
Simple. On the day Article 50 was invoked, a No-Deal Brexit was possible. So preparations should have started. They've had nearly 2 years.
However, Whitehall, and a sizeable proportion of the Cabinet were (and still are) determined that Brexit should be as soft as possible, or not happen at all. Remember, Cameron expressedly forbade any such preparations whilst PM. So little or nothgin has been done.
This is a kind of reverse brinksmanship. Instead of convincing the other side you can walk away, you convince the rest of your side that you cannot.
Since THIS vulnerability is caused by the processor NOT conforming to the operating sequence as documented in the spec sheet this fault is absolutely an Intel design fault.
All Intel processors exhibiting this fault are FAULTY, NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE, and should be replaced by Intel Free-of-charge.
If the device has a non-replaceable CPU, Intel owe you a new device.
This is absolutely as serious as the mandatory recalls that happen whith cars when a safety-critical fault is found. The Manufacturer stands for all of the losses incurred. If Intel gets away with this one (which they will, bastards, look at the share price) , nobody should buy an Intel device ever again!
