The best one I see was Herb Lin on BBC news 24 telling people to update their PC's before switching them on? How the Fsck ... Chicken and egg or headless chicken

Lying, machiavellian, opportunist, carrion twats. For that to happen they would need to win a landslide victory in the upcoming election of the magnitude never , never , ever , ever , seen before in UK politics. It won't happen (hint!)
Alternatively, someone hit her very hard and loud with the truth...
That's some alternate reality right there
I doubt this will be the end of it, depressing but true
Indeed, I've been through the 'process' with a loved one who was granted full benefits upon appeal. That indeed seems to be the entire point of this costly and pointless process. Possibly(robably) some accept the outcome of their ATOS decision, and never appeal. The scummy politicians think this charade is perfectly acceptable.
Before ATOS existed the claimant GP's word, and opinion was accepted.
Not so now

It's official you not here to relax and have a bit of fun. You are here to be born, learn, work, pay your way, and die as soon as you cease to be productive ;)
Thnx to you too(+1upvote), will keep the K for now. God bless Eugene
Thnx and an upvote
I've used K for a windows box, primarily because of its' good independent test reports and the involvement of K in many international IT security efforts. Should I seek to switch? If so, can anyone recommend a good non-Russian cum non-American (obviously) alternative for work laptop?
PS I don't store any sensitive government, military, or politcial information.

It'll all end badly, I'm certain. I'd love to think redmonds' intentions toward linux are benign, but their past/history indicates otherwise.
If I were the judge that miscreant would be wearing an orange boiler suit, and sharing their dorm with a sex offending mutiple rapist for the next 10 years, and let that be a lesson to you.
Couldn't agree more, and as a taxi service that it very clearly is, should be subject to all the regulation and conform to the public protections that other taxi services abide by.

Even better, send 'em to Sunderland: extra-sepecially after Nisan finally decide its too much and back out ... Laugh I nearly cried
Don't you just love bean counters :P,
perhaps they were taking a cut, just speculating.
Anyone else seeing a pattern emerging? Will the hackers/leakers ever be revealed? State actors anyone?
Whoo cannot wait to read le pens' personal communiques, and business dealings. Silly me that won't heppen.
Chaffetz said the technology makes mistakes, with one in seven FBI facial recognition searches incorrectly returning a list of innocent people as matches, despite the presence of the actual matching image in the database.
Ahhh the joys of 'I'm feeling lucky', hours spent expanding my horizons ;)
PS I had to check it was still there
Dystopia bekons, what could possibly go wrong when Adobe teams up with M$.
PS Does anyone remember consenting to data collection of the scale that we are currently seeing ?
You Sir sound experienced in such matters
One minor detail, a truly air gapped system won't get infected with the malware unless assisted by something with stuxnet like capabilities, and/or lax protocols allowing the pluging of USB's, or forgetting to disable all wireless comms at the driver level etc.. All the demos seem to presume the air gapped system is infected in the first place, apparently the trivial bit is infecting such systems. Perhaps I'm missing something really obvious.
You'd have thunk that'd be another nail in the java coffin, but think again. I dream of the day when these script languages are no longer needed, for when the standards provide for scriptless content interaction, and presentation without using the third party insecure kludges.
They could kill the golden goose in one swift move which would not only make other companies potentially fly away
Do you honestly believe these vampiric, blood sucking vultures would flyaway from one of the lowest corporate tax hideouts in the largest market outside of the good ol' US of A, and the 'not so communist' China, to setup office in Budapest? Your conjecture is facile at best.
Or perhaps the Irish government, merely have to be seen to be opposed to the notion, while privately wondering what to spend the wind-fall monies on.
Can I have some of your wacky backy, pwettttty purleeaaaseeee
... and everything to do with politics, if you belive what the tech republic article posted on the 10th has to say about this.
"At the time the report was released, the FSFE questioned why Accenture was commissioned to co-author a report assessing the use of Microsoft software, when the consultancy runs a joint venture with Microsoft called Avanade, which helps businesses implement Microsoft technologies. For its part, Accenture said it has an "independent view of the technology landscape"."
The citizens of Munchen must be so proud of there elected councillors, I for one feel so sorry for the poor bastards.
Lets just hope the assets recovery agency does a good job, and this kind of thing isn't seen to pay well.
Oracle are not being insane, like any other company they have a fiduciary obligation to maximise profit by any realistic means possible. They own Java, and monetising Java is potentially a very lucrative way of cashing in on the success of Android. If they're not seen to be pursuing every opportunity properly their own employment is under threat from aggrieved and out of pocket shareholders.
That depends on your definition of realistic, and the win/loss risk assessment. They own java?, where does that leave open JDK, in the court? I read somewhere : "the jury found that Android does not infringe Oracle-owned copyrights because its re-implementation of 37 Java APIs is protected by fair use".
To me neither corporation is a beacon of hope, though you have to wonder what Oracle hope to achieve. Should IP be granted for abstract concepts like API interfaces? In my view that could lead us down a very murky avenue indeeed, wouldn't you agree.
Thought this would be approropriate for certain domains, e.g. https://the-new-truth.trump
If you pick up an old free copy, and scrunch it up very well prior to cutting it into 8cm wide strips then I find it does a marvellous job. No smearing, no scratching, best of all they always have pictures of Theresa and Boris inside.
Where do I sign up for some of that?

Who exactly from the alt-right (nazis) will hold Trump accountable for broken promises? My only hope is the various nutjobs who hollered and wailed at the rallies don't take action into their own hands once Trump starts making U-turns.
' Have to agree with that, same's true on the other side of the pond. Finally the only winners will be fat cats fuelled by fat tax cuts.
you could also mention the hand sifting for facial scars etc... obviously that wouldn't introduce unintended bias from the experiment designers.
'1856 real persons, half of whom were convicted criminals'
That doesn't seem to be a sufficiently large dataset for making such broad claims.
Point taken, but do you seriously consider the privacy invasion / snooping to be on a par with lets say windows 10, or any one of a gazillion android apps that want txt/email/phonebook access to provide the most basic unrelated function?
Andrew Orlowski using his editorial power to pursue a grudge, file next to any el reg articles with wikipeadia in the title ;)
To be fair, there is some irony in this mozilla 'privacy edition', however it is fully disclosed, and open source to boot. This is hardly the stuff of sinister conspiracy plots ... meh?!
Facscism, or radical right wing nationalistic politcial doctrine, notably antonymous to liberal democracy. Does the hilighted bit ring any bells? Or do you need me to explain their meaning to you.
Call me simple if you will, but I like to call a spade a spade, and when I hear words like 'alt-right' what I really hear is 'nazi' or 'fascist'. Those are not a nice words, but the PR guys managed to make them
acceptable, or so it would appear. Similarly when I hear 'post-truth', I hear 'lying sheister' or 'lies like a politician'. That's just my take on it. As the old saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and only time will tell how sincere these people have been.
Everyone's entitled to an opinion ...

"requiring communications service providers to retain internet connection records when given a notice by the Secretary of State." ®
Good news for us, and good news for the ISP's. That makes me feel so much safer ;)
Google has enough money to buy the next president of USA the same way it "owned" this one.
Too true, they're also expanding their bases with new HQ in London, and something Andrew might be interested in. Being a bit of an old campaigner at heart, I found this pretty nice looking job.
I call that denialism. Facts are usually undeniable, hence the handle 'fact' aka 'a thing that is known or proved to be true'. I think you may have justifiable issues with conventional wisdom, but conventional wisdom is far from factual.
The people who check the fact-checkers. Who are in turn checked by the people who check the people who check the fact checkers. Who in turn are checked by the people who check the people who check the people .....
Bit late now, but something is better than nothing, yes?
At the same time I am deeply troubled by the imbalance between the standards of prima facie evidence that has to be provided by either the UK or the US as the case may be. In that respect the UK government has, and continues to, let its citizens down.
That'll be the special relationship, you know the drill turn around and assume the position
From where I'm standing there's one culprit who deserves a good kicking more than a spotty teenager with a bad network probing habit, and that's the big corporation handling all this personal data in a rather haphazard, even cavalier manner. The irony is they've apparently managed to increase corporate profits despite all this, truth indeed, fools do seem to be easily parted from their money.
