Airbus uses an American-made C130 for testing? Don't they have any of their own planes they can use for testing?
So... basically he is asking for new laws to strictly define what content to host and where to draw the line, so he doesn't have to make a decision himself?
Isn't that the bad kind of governmental meddling?
yes these should be reserved but a hosts file before - an often 3rd party dns - isn't a bad thing
also .localdomain while we are at it pls

if it took you fifteen seconds to save a bookmark then there is something seriously broken with your pc, not Firefox's fault.

Years ago (possibly 30+ years ago), I remember reading an SF story that involved self-driving vehicles on highways and bored people tossing Christmas trees on to the road and then watching traffic grind to a halt because they couldn't cope with the obstruction, especially if the trucks were driverless.
Their name has obvious resonances of ubermensch, so it's been like a sneering from mini-Nazis for the past several years. Absolutely no one at the company or the company's investors can pretend that this resonance sailed over their heads. It just so happens that they are resonant of ubermensch, while disrupting underwritten paratransit and showing contempt for the disabled people who rely on it. You are exempt from Godwin's Law on the merits of the situation.
(Just an expression, Reg., I would not call you stupid lest I become the truly stupid!) It's the precarity. It's the contingent work! It's the 1099! It's always been the 1099! It was illegitimate, cheating nonsense in 2011 and it's illegitimate, cheating nonsense now. This is an interesting development, and Uber touches upon the entire rainbow of kinds of outrages, but most of those outrages trace back to the 1099! Uber, Lyft, Taskrabbit, Sidecar, Homejoy, Handy, Spoonrocket, Postmates, Luxe, crud like Gigwalk, Deliveroo (I don't know the UK as well), and the rest of the menagerie of animal names are equally assholish even if they are branded as the "nice" startups who love labrador retrievers, empathize with you neoliberally and feel your pain, and not the "mean" ones who are known for kicking your shins and causing the pain in the first place. So I hope that not too much will be wrapped up with one personality. Kalanick sets a low bar - two cheers for the other 99% of misclassification practitioners who don't love Ayn Rand but are still trying to exploit unemployed people and cram entrepreneurship down their throats to make a phony arm's-length relationship.
"The wiki article you link to is for REAR impact guards"
It's actually about all types of impact guards and mentions that while rear guards are mandatory through a EU directive, side and front guards are regulated by UN/ECE R73 and R93.
Chrome 58 is out now. It shows apple.com and epic.com correctly. (A few minutes ago, 57 on my computer showed them as bogus URLs).
Too funny you say there is no innovation. Did you read: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/03/13/pure_drops_to_fifth_overtaken_by_ibm/?
Pure coming in from nowhere and taking 5th place for flash is an endorsement of their customers trusting their products.
It was amusing trying to parse this headline. I thought Alternative vet Quartermaine was something like an alternative blood lab called Theranos. I rolled my eyes and thought, would those damn disruptors please leave the sick animals alone? But no, it's their mission to break up the power of the incumbent veterinarians' cartel. It would be funny, except I'm sure there actually is a startup like this. The vets are all precarious freelancers, or as Quartermaine prefers to refer to the community, "Quarties."
Just seems to be some odd wording to my unwashed ears.
Ok, ok, I'm leaving already. Don't push me...
The dashboard was not the only central AWS system affected. The console and API also seem to rely heavily on the US-EAST-1 storage with increased errors rates when trying to deploy elsewhere or change entries in Route 53.
That should be easy. The partner services are on a whitelist and get preferential full-speed access while everything else gets lumped into the same few-kilobits-per-second bucket routed via overloaded peering points.
A newsgroup is not better. Mailing lists can be filtered and sorted into folders to the receiver's liking, can be accessed on multiple clients syncing the read/unread/tagged status. A newsgroup requires the same name everywhere without any server-side support for flags and tags.
NNTP is mostly dead. Mailing lists rule.
Don't worry. Germany will protect Poland against any hostile invasions.
Could Quantum be risking Federal liability, or even massive asset forfeiture to the profit of the Trump administration, by advertising their products for something that while claimed to be legal by the states, is still a Federal felony to produce?
Or is this story just the product of creative journalism?

>> The custom chips also power a custom AWS network architecture that uses 25Gb Ethernet, a format Amazon believes is actually more scalable and efficient than the 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet standards commonly used.
I don't get it. Does anyone have any details from the conference on why this is the case?
cmd.exe is not good, but at least it is fairly simple, and has "worked" for all versions of Windows.
I don't want to learn yet another scripting language, particularly one with such limited portability.
May Microsoft's executives spend a long span in purgatory trying to eat soup with chopsticks, until they grasp the notion that while users appreciate new functionality, they don't want it enforced by default.
Years ago, well before Apple Pay came out, the only place I was able to use my American Express Blue card's NFC capability was at McDonalds. Even now, stores that accept contactless payment is limited.
(I enjoy laying my wallet on top of the credit card terminals and watch the cashier's expression. Some times they'll start to tell me that's not how to use it, only to be interrupted by the beep signaling the completed transaction)

Sounds like a stack overflow problem.
I used to have one of those mouse mice. I was disappointed when I got a new computer that no longer had a PS2 port for the mouse.
Did the study look to see if sex was the only form of exercise they engaged in? If you don't regularly exercise when older, any form of exertion can cause a heart attack (such as shoveling snow from your driveway).
The hypothetical situation described in the article seems a bit of a stretch, and given the plethora of driver assistance devices being installed in modern cars (adaptive cruise control, lane keep, etc) it doesn't seem too far fetched to assume that autonomous vehicles will be better at dealing with danger than human drivers.
However, there is another significant impediment to their widespread adoption: liability. Who is at fault in a collision? The cars themselves will invariably have a great deal of logging data to assess what was done incorrectly, and in most cases this will likely provide evidence that the other (human) driver was to blame, but in the few cases the software proves to be the culprit who will be held responsible? Will it be the owner of the autonomous car or the manufacturer?

To differentiate it from normal phone boxes is the "Transdimensional Personnel Locator" painted blue, perhaps with a blinking light on top?

I really can't come up with any other reason. There must be some big customer behind it, if it has to be on by default.
A registry setting to disable this behaviour exists!
20+ years ago, part of my job was building a mail client for PCs. I made sure that the client blocked downloading .bat attachments.
> Is mistake was not selling to a local user.
I strongly suspect that the purchaser intentionally targeted a seller in another state, so it would be difficult for the seller to defend himself in court.

I'll stick with Video2000 then, the aborted Nokia N900 line. The USB socket is gone but it's still my favourite mobile terminal.

Why, the Foreign Office must be overjoyed with all the discussion and no answers. Surely they are pro-europe, aren't they?
Please correct me if I'm wrong here.
Most of these vulnerabilities require ntpd's authentication scheme(s) to be configured, which are horribly fragile by themselves and practically never used outside self-hopping minefields.
That leaves the Xleave problem, although having multiple server associations might protect a little.
Well, auto-update should take care of most of our servers. Only the custom ntpd on a Raspberry Pi w/ GPS needs recompiling.
I'd consider copying *all* outgoing mail into the mailbox of a contractor and then owning up to it only after said contractor's data slurping script borked and the mailbox overflowed to be a tad more serious than not routing any mail at all.
Seems like BT tries to play down the security implications. Imagine the mails would not have bounced. No one would know and Steve Webb would still have a full feed of BT mail traffic.
Are there any OSS options to these players other than Ceph that is simple to setup and use? Similar to ZFS based NAS solutions
Don't worry. Soon, systemd-tls will fix it.
RFC 3514 would solve this easily for Cloudflare. Just filter all the evil packets.

When I've inherited code, I've frequently fixed bugs simply by turning on all warnings. Like the function that would intermittently fail because someone passed it three arguments instead of four (it was grabbing the value of the fourth argument from what ever was on the stack).

Boring. And old.
This is being done by many major websites already that run call centres (if you've ever been asked what X character of your password is... TADA!). This is nothing new.
Now what would be much more interesting would be some real reporting. Passwords on a website is nothing compared to the number of vulnerable routers out there.
I wonder how many ISPs have vulnerable routers out there that they aren't patching?
I can bet that would be a much more scary report. And no ISP would be safe.
