I love the picture, but I thought Jesus uses an Apple Mac Pro?

What? For more cuckoo feed?
The hamster in the reaction wheel ate the cuckoo's food?
What is the mouse thing - is it a new monster in Nethack? On which level?
So if it is perfectly randomized, you only need one sample...
Re: Alternative OS? Tried the Live USB of Fedora 25
You don't need to 'create' anything. Just use rawrite to copy the ISO the USB stick.
Don't blame the user for shit system security. A user *should* be able to click on anything.
Well, I have three screens on my Macbook. The one on the right is on HDMI, while the one on the left is on a Thunderbolt/VGA. I didn't think that is very special actually.
It sounds to me that the guy was going hungry and wanted to go to jail.
The problem is that the kids who write today's software weren't even born in the 80s. All babies are born stupid and inexperienced.
Obviously it is America trying to influence the next Russian election.
Re: What's so wrong about a private email server?
You forgot the part about the crafty Sting operation. The documents in question were classified Secret RETROACTIVELY. They were not classified as such at the time that she sent/received them.
Obligatory MS Mention
Now, if only Microsoft can learn from this and merge Windows 10 with Windows 7.
I have a smart TV too, but it isn't plugged in to the LAN, which it seems, makes it smarter...
Barcodes on implants are a huge security and privacy problem. Now your girlfriend can be tracked by her implants unless she wears a tinfoil bra and what can possibly be more offputting than a tinfoil bra?
Why drill? They can just land one in the same sport as the last one and analyze the ejecta from the crater.
This crap can only be stopped by ISPs. Same as ISPs were forced to block port 25 and port 80, they will have to block whatever ports these crap things mostly use. The other option is that a White Hat will eventually write a self replicating worm to fix these things and randomize their passwords.
"just enter their answers into a file an upload it to a central site" - Just think for a moment how many goatses would be uploaded, then reconsider this idea.
Re: supporting my elderly father with his windows 10 machine
...and where I work, there are many 'Engineering' laptops that run some sort of Linux. When the Windows drones complain about not being able to do something, we just nod and carry on working.
Re: supporting my elderly father with his windows 10 machine
It sounds like you are part of the problem, not part of the solution. Nobody pays me to fix my own machine, or those of my parents, so we are all using Macs and the support issues are practically zero.
Re: ,So there's an online fix for not being able to get online?
Pretty much *all* Linux install CDs are Live CDs. So download anyone of about ten billion distributions, burn the ISO file to a disk or USB schtick and boot it.
Interesting, hundreds of comments from technically adept people, but not a single one of them ran tcpdump, ettercap or wireshark to see what is really the matter. That kinda makes me wonder what kind of person reads theregister these days.
Building a system with a web browser and hot linking and then telling users not to click on links is ridiculous. Don't blame the user for your own incompetence.
Sharepoint is a great tool for storing data. Retrieving it however...
Re: All sounds German to me
Afrikaans Nederlands - Maak seker.
Re: It's a bit disappointing
Labcoat!? Clipboard!? Maybe 25 years ago, not today.
That will end in blood sweat and tears. Active Directory really doesn't like it when you rename something.
Dawson City is a nice and balmy -32 C now.
Pics - or it didn't happen...
Re: "loosened regulatory controls on medical companies"
Well, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger - and people who die don't sponge on society, so loosened regulation tends to kill several flies in the ointment with one swat...
Re: Security is rubbish
The Windows 10 version:
10 i've been to lazy to make a coffee.....
15 send lazy count to walgreens.com for abilify re-order
20 maybe a coffee would help you get motivated?
25 send coffee cup count to starbucks.com
30 goto 10
Yeah, I guess state-based means somebody in his mom's basement in the You Knighted States...
Re: Why do Defense networks insist on being accessible via Internet ?
Hmm, 75 baud Baudot RTTY would sure limit the damage.
Re: Friction Piles
Have you been to Venice? It is wood and turtles all the way down into the swamp...
Re: Not the developer's fault.
Hmm, there are actually lots of leaning towers in Italy. The Piza clock tower is quite nice, but not even the prettiest either, although this SF tower is on an ever so slightly larger scale.
Well, being ex military, I am sorry to say, but torture does in fact work and when it can save lives, it will be used, whether it is official policy or not.
The problem with disallowing torture, is that soldiers may still torture and then kill the captive, to hide the act of torture.
Re: The FBI
Err... Trump moved into the White House and was inaugurated already? Wow, I must have blinked and not seen Obama high tailing it out of there.
OK, so they found voda - yeah da. Call me when they find vodka!
Re: Can you hold down the power button
I wish I could send you a picture of what the Enter key on my Mac looks like. At the top is some Arabic jargon, under that is a hooked arrow pointing to the left, then a hooked arrow pointing to the right and at the bottom is an arrow pointing up. I have no idea what any of that means. I bought the bladdy thing in Dubai...
Blame the (L)user
Corporate IT always resorts to blame the user:
* Don't click dodgy links.
* Don't open suspicious attachments.
Well, fuck me sideways - How is a common user supposed to do the above, when the IT overlords are themselves totally incapable of keeping said crap out of their kingdom?
I had no idea that AOL still had 500 employees.
Re: The plot thickens!
"You correct! This proves cannot be work Russian and is responsibility us evil Westerners.
By way, I am Yankee just like you. I has nothing gain from pretending be foreigner!"
Yup, Slavs tend to speak English without 'a' and 'the', making it sound weirdly staccato.
I was wearing a CCCP T-shirt to a party and the first thing my (now) wife told me was: "Where you get that shirt? You look like Russian athlete." She still speaks that way.
Cars that catch fire almost every day actually.
Man, it is Orlando! If you walk, you can get mugged or run over by a taxi. That is why they offered the courtesy car.
I fail to see what this article has to do with either Pat or Slackware?
Some people just don't understand how disk encryption systems work.
With 'whole disk encrypttion' the /boot partition has to be unencrypted, otherwise the machine cannot boot - duh.
You can boot a computer up various ways and get a console - another duh.
The rest of the disk is still encrypted and the data is still unreadable and safe. So there is no problem, this is how it is supposed to work.
Hmm, NHS IT may need to buy a few of these for their email system right now.
Re: Seen it.
The problem is not the dumb users. The problem is the dum bass who configured the mail system in such a way that this failure is possible. Any self respecting mail server should block spam - including HR spam and other idiocies like this.
Re: So, the UK population has doubled?
You under counted the Travellers, Sirians and Afhanis by about 6.5 million...
