GDS gets it in the neck from MPs over Rural Payments Agency farce


Re: Dr Syntax

so so true

its the modern model and all it does is destroy what is needed to grow and innovate when you cannot steal skills off your competitors as no one is training its the same

another thing you will probably have noticed is the disasters are at twice the generation times of the managers

a manager leans the lessons of the disaster

passes it on to the next generation as they train

the next generation knows better and will not listen to the elders as they havn't seen it first hand

Fresh hell for TalkTalk customers: TeamView trap unleashed



nice detail I did find the mad number of partitions on the TV box when I ditched talktalk after a couple of days the box committed suicide so I pulled the disk and checked it and thinking about it if a "agency" could export a large number of remotes into a fair proportion of the countries homes it would be very useful, I suppose the only issue is the useless talktalk themselves, they could not organise it so it must be someone else


as a former talktalk customer they are disorganised and cash driven the support seems intent on closing the call and denying anything

I am not surprised they are in such trouble, and teamviewer is an open hole in your security

looking at the schematic it looks ideal DC DC conversion isolation nice to see IT at the front for a change ( used to be an TI Medium range systems engineer )


Re: Are they talking about ONE home powering the node?

if you want simplicity to run a distributed supply for these units its not difficult if you say have 20 subscribers back feed over the copper as a phantom 48V Open circuit at 500ma constant current supply which would give you 24Watts per cabinet feed or 500 watts

if there is excess it will reduce the current demand on the share depending on the line resistance the maximum demand would be 24 watts could be less
