The Bristol channel is well known as a right nasty bit of water it has a lot of nasty tides, sandbars and rocks just below the surface.
All told as long as you have sufficient food and water you are far safer lost in deep water where theirs nothing to hit than something like the Bristol channel.
I hate to break it to you but there are plenty of countries where as far as the "law" is concerned a wife cannot be raped by her husband and killing one's daughter for dishonouring the family is fair game.
if you want to be depressed at how crap the world is I suggest you look at the www.amnesty.org.uk website.
I had a cursory look into that, given my background as a SQL/C developer I realised that that approach has several major downsides for me:
1: I am, not an admin so I would have to spend a bunch of time learning how to do a decent job of running Linux box.
2: Any decent VPN provider comes with robust multi-platform tools so you don't have to spend ages trying to get your phone and desktop to agree.
3: You only have 1 endpoint used by a small user pool, one of the main strengths of using a large VPN provider is the network of endpoints that all of which have enough traffic running through them to allow you to hide in the mass.
4: Encryption of any stripe is Reallllllllly hard to do right and really easy to get badly wrong whilst giving the impression of working to a non-specialist.
All told the £40 or so a year I would save by going it alone does not justify in my view the ease of use and peace of mind I get having this kind of thing done right.
The caveat emptor is that you need to do your homework before picking any encryption provider, its a market saturated with snake oil and there is no such thing as cheap security only cheap illusions.
Part of the reason why a sat nav system has so many birds is to retain accuracy in areas with a restricted view of the sky eg cities valleys etc.
As such I am really curious as to what the availability of this system is in the field given that are proposing only 3 satellites to cover the whole globe.
I resent that comment I am not a day over 500 years old.
More seriously though we are at the moment working our way through an MVC intranet app that will only ever be viewed on laptops and desktops, so why must we have a responsive design and a 1/3 of the screen blank??
Troll as there is no goblin icon =>
Why would they change we have all been eating the same crap happily from the Tabacco, Pharma, Oil........ ect,ect for as long as commerce has existed.
To be honest I wonder if part of the reason why the social messes won't move decisively on the political interference issue is that they know that as soon as a solid government appears in the States the hammer will fall on them.
It's no different to the tobacco companies fighting tooth and nail against the truth that they just peddle a slow death to their customers.
Francky I am in two minds which is more damaging to society, deliberately killing people with cancer or permanently screwing up democracy via the social media cesspit.
I won't have any of these "AI Products" reasons being:
1: It's just another thing to break and make stuff harder to repair.
2: Its yet more IOT $%&t you will be lucky if it gets even gets 1 patch leave out a decade's worth that a lot of white goods will need.
3: It's a microphone in your home controlled by the creepiest companies in existence.
These are enough reasons for me to avoid this stuff like a plague.
My cousin is legally blind with about 20% vision in one eye as such smartphones are almost totally useless to her as the largest phone sizes are far too small.
so for web browsing, she is stuck with a desktop and 23" monitor set to 250% font scaling, it's one area where Microsoft seems to be well ahead of the pack.
The problem boils down to money as it always has, disability access is hard to do and represents a small unprofitable user group, much as I am generally in the free-trade business corner it is one area that effective and enforced legislation is a must.
Your law #1 does that apply to microcode inside your CPU too? Damn shame that is hidden from you to do your own audit eh?
You are right that it is impossible to audit everything but when you are not even attempting to defend against proven attack vectors you have failed at security.
Having script's that load untrusted 3rd party code on secure pages is at this point the equivalent of leaving the keys in the front door and wondering why you lost all of your stuff.
I'm not understanding how that matters. If the script links in external references the script can be benign when tested but not necessarily in the future.
If the script has any ability to load remote code in after deployment it fails the can I put this in a secure area test.
If you want analytics of your payment tunnel, use an after the event log analysis tool.
There are plenty that can have this data uploaded to the cloud to give the
morons managment pretty graphs that they won't understand to look at.
I've lost track of the number of times I've had to bash heads together over this kind of thing.
Its usually some sales or marketing drone think that adding a <Insert retarded social network here> link to the website will magically add a tone of traffic.
This tends to result in emails like this :
F.F.S. people if its an even vaguely secure area no script that you have not copied locally and validated does what you think it does goes in, is this so hard to understand.
