Ayup, it is an ancient law that all software evolves until it can send email. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean that it will stop evolving at that point.

Easy to learn?
Any programming language is easy to learn if you already know a bunch of other programming languages...
Why can't you install Windows 10 Creators Update on your old Atom netbook? Because Intel stopped loving you
Hmm, these are make nice cheap machines for OpenBSD.
Hmm, Mr Hancock eh? Very appropriate. We can call it the Cockinhan Access Control System. I'm sure it will be a full blown government IT cockup as usual.
So, I take it that these iSmart assess are not?
Pray tell what is the technical IT angle to this miracle?
Re: It's a phase young programmers go through
All programs grow until they can send email.
Systemd is almost there.
I gave up with systemd some time ago and switched to Slackware and OpenBSD. I think that we need not worry too much about systemd, since it will eventually implode under its own weight.
Russia is not the enemy. Spain is the enemy. Russia doesn't have a Gibraltar dispute...
Re: One has to ask
Coffee shop? In Amsterdam? A pot shop more likely and that may also explain the bad math and health issues...
Well, shit happens. My brother in law once moved across country to a new job, only to find that the new job he was hired for doesn't exist anymore and was stuck in a different position for a while. I once moved to another country, only to find that the company I signed up with doesn't exist anymore and was hired by a sister company a few weeks later.
Try Streamtuner (Streamripper is built in) and then you may understand why it is much more convenient than anything else. Real radio stations are unusable where I live, so once a year, I let my laptop download about 10 radio stations for a few days. I save that on a memory stick and that is what I listen to in my car for the rest of the year.
Re: Welcome to the UK
In Penticton Canada, prostitutes from Vancouver were processed at a pig farm and mixed in with the pork sausages...

The other jail birds subsequently removed him from the gene pool.
I know them as the Crap News Network, but then, I'm not an American.
Re: Anti-Trump bias?
Uhmm, maybe the journalists are now being censured because their readers are leaving in droves and CNN is beginning to feel it in the purse? The constant childish and disrespectful rants against the Donald is simply boring and readers don't like that.
Re: Temper temper!
Ayup, the media is largely an echo chamber - they only listen to themselves and therefore think they rule the roost. However, as O'l Donald likes to point out: He is the president, not them.
It is true that almost half of USAins don't like Donald, but the other slightly larger half like him just fine and the media companies need to accept that if they want to survive, else they will lose a good chunk of their readers, since the constant wailing and railing against the Donald is getting extremely old and boring to everyone.
So, the moral of the story is to use more Windows XP machines?
Come one guys, take it easy. Lennart doesn't need nasty nicknames. He is already Poettering.
W0t? He is not Russian and it was not a nation state actor?

Note that 1240 / 3 million ain't 39 %, irrespective of what you were smoking.
The really sad thing is that after tapping millions of phone calls, the result was totally useless.
So I assume that the Kaspersky crew were served with National Security Letters and now cannot talk about whatever transpired. So by next week, their software will likely have a US backdoor in it.
Hmm, cron with a deadman's switch and a virtual email server with the rent paid up for a few years should work. You don't need to re-invent the wheel Dabsy.
All deer and antelope bound at great speed and will run along a road, then turn right in front you. So, the main problem is that there is no wild animals in Sweden to experiment on.
Same thing in most of the Middle East. Foreigners hail a taxi to cross a road.
Well, children also have no road sense at all, so that is par for the course.
Well at least XP is immune to the current scourge of ransomware.
Re: Clickbait article or real concern?
These ships have Satcom links. So it could get infected. However, the Windows XP that the military use is not exactly the same as the Windows XP that ordinary mortals use - it is hardened and penetration tested and likely running on top of VMware ESX.
Ayup, fortunatley the new Aunt Lizzy Aircraft Carrier is running XP.
In many cases you will find that there are perfectly good alternatives that do the same thing on Linux/BSD/Apple Mac. For the rest, you can use Windows in a virtual machine with the virtual network cable unplugged, or very strongly packet filtered by the host.
Note that there are millions of Apple Mac users out there that do not use any Windows software and get things done much more easily, securely and professionally.
Well, Linux, BSD and MacIntosh are very similar and share tens of thousands of software packages. So you allude that millions of Mac users for example, cannot get any work done?
It is time to wake up and smell the coffee. There is a whole world of computing out there that you are not aware of.

"How else can you commit theft?" By copying a song/tune, leaving the original intact.
Wot? No carbon fibre in space suits? Just think how much better the space suits would work if the suits were lined with carbon fibre and they could rebalance the astronaut's energy flow!
Now if someone would be so nice and fix their 20 year old USB autorun bugs for them, so that we can actually use USB memory devices on Windows again without risk of picking up ten different ransom notes...
Re: "because the mislaid or lost information was on paper"
In ye bad olde days, there was Cardex, which worked pretty good. What they do now, is anyone's guess - prolly a spreadsheet Excel and Access thing on WinME.
Maybe she just went out for lunch at Millyways?
Patching Microsoft security issues is like fixing a rusted sieve with chewing gum.
Who in his right mind will use them again anyway?
Hmm, it all sounds like a special case hype. Execution randomization tricks should mitigate this. OpenBSD now even randomizes the memory locations of kernel processes.
Re: That's not hot. This is hot.
Desert rat here. It is 48 C today.
I'm waiting for it to cool down to 40 so we can go and swim around 8 pm.
Some poor Chinese chappy asked for directions and ended up cycling 500 km in the wrong direction.
Remember when Microsoft offered 45 Billion to buy Yahoo? They must be so glad it was refused.
Re: Don't trust email.
...or you can use a better computer with proper email and word processors that are not susceptible to crapware.
I find it very nice that when the carriers moaned about the cost of unlocking - the gubment ordered them to not lock them in the first place, so that there is no cost.
BTW, I live in a country where phone locking is completely unheard of and most phones have multiple SIM cards from multiple carriers.
Och, does any of the kids on here even know what a CRT is? I always thought it is nice having to stare straight into the business end of an electron gun all day long, protected by a couple millimeters of leaded glass.
The cost savings are substantial actually
If they don't pay staff, then that certainly will save a lot of money.
ed is the standard UNIX editor
$ man indent
indent - changes the appearance of a C program by inserting or deleting whitespace.
Re: I think we need to know...
It would have been funnier if your username was not female.
Well, what they were doing is not actually illegal. It is only how they were doing it that is illegal.
It is amazing that after all these years of crapware, ports 135/tcp, 135/udp, 137/udp 138/udp, and 139/tcp are still enabled on Windows networks.
