@Nick Kew: That is patently false.
As someone who has lived in the EU, and was unfortunate enough to be out of work for 6 weeks after only being there 18 months, I was perfectly entiltled to benefits and healthcare. I was an EU citizen, and the point of being an EU citizen is that you are treated as a citizen anywhere in the EU.
The timeframe you refer to is merely for naturalisation and becoming a full citizen of the country you are working/living in. Although prior to Brexit, there wasn't really any need for a person to be naturalised in another EU country, if you were already born in another.
One is unlikely to see Farage on a walk around as he now lives in Germany with his wife while trying to get residency so he can retain his EU citizenship.
Shows how much UKIP was just a vehicle to get him noticed and now brexit is coming to pass he has vanished to leave us in the dodo.
No, because the Americans have made it clear they are unable to hack and infiltrate Huawei systems, hence the need to ban them.
It is obvious the IP Huawei stole from Cisco didn't include backdoors, only useful stuff, and thank god, we can finally get useful networking kit without having to put up with Cisco/NSA spying.
Of course, it is interesting how you seem to think the only two companies that supply networking kit in the world are Cisco or Huawei.
My advice would be ignore both and choose a third or fourth, maybe even 5th placed vendor, or better yet, diversify and don't fall into the trap of using a single vendor across your whole network.
The world has been hoodwinked by the NSA and Cisco, we've managed to make them the gold standard in networking certifications and the way of doing things, and for what cost? We've handed the entire networked world to the American government.
I think it is time the world seriously started looking to other players in the industry to stop what has become, through Cisco controlled networks, ultimately the largest government surveillance network in the world.
Yeah, there is a way to tell.
The scientists studied the motions and movements of the planet and loads of stars in the area, and figured out through maths and stuff that the planet had originated in the solar system they said it originated in, was ejected, and then kicked back in by the other binary system.
I mean, I'm pretty sure the point of this article was to highlight that this was the conclusion of a series of scientific investigations, not preliminary thoughts on what might be happening. Thus the story painted is the way to tell what happened.
Sites like Just Eat and Deliveroo manage to get food to my house through large web based booking systems, so I can't see why it can't be extended to restaurants.
Deliveroo already does take away services for some of the premium retaurants around my area, so to add table booking as well shouldn't be hard.
Whereas I see this as MS teaching Linux lovers a thing or two about doing open-source properly.
Start with an open-source license - MIT is a good starting point.
And that is how you do open source properly. MIT, not copy-left restrictive policies.
Go on, you know you want to, I need more down votes...
@Wonko - Yeah, coz Anti-Cheat code is only written badly on Windows10.
I am sure the really badly written hacky anti-cheat code is written much better for Linux users, oh wait, you mentioned WINE frontends, those will also suffer at the hands of this poorly written malware masquerading as software.
But you know, despite this problem being nothing to do with MS, and 100% due to scummy games publishers and their malware code, you still have to attack MS.
Is being so pathetic a requirement to be penguin?
One would assume that a video recorded in portrait mode was done so because it made the most sense due to the subject being recorded.
One would assume that a video recorded in landscape mode was done so because it made the most sense due to the subject being recorded.
One would assume that one should playback a video in the same mode it was recorded, because it makes most sense to get the best view of the video.
If you are the type who has to watch landscape videos in portrait, or portrait videos in landscape, one would have to ask why? What do you think you will gain by watching a video in the wrong mode?
Modern phones use USB-C for input/charging/output. Modern docks supply power and connect to devices over USB-C. You see where I am going with this?
I have tested various Huawei, Samsung and other phones through USB-C docks, and so far I have only had trouble with installing Display port drivers, but I was able to download an app for display port which provided that, so essentially, you can already dock a USB-C based phone and use Keyboard, mouse and monitor, it's standard functionality in Android.
And I hope all the downvotes I got for saying people who used password managers were idiots to expect software to be safe, are now causing their owners to be busy choking on their insecure passwords.
Like I said before (and got a shed loads of downvotes) You need a Pad, a Pen and a Safe. Now, rather than downvoting understand that is the ONLY way to keep your passwords safe. (Except if you get targeted, burgled and your safe broken, but then, you have to admit, you must be a special target for that to happen).
Actually, I think you find it's not stupid people they are after, but rich old people with dementia and other mental fragility.
The reason for this is the story they weave captures these kind of people, and it is made with deliberate mistakes so to not to waste the time on someone who is going to rumble the scam at some point.
I take issue with the 'stupid' people tag, it is deliberately targeted at people with Mental Disabilities that will fall for it. They are not stupid, just old and ill.
Do that in the UK, I dare you..
You'll find yourself in jail for obstructing justice.
Don't try and apply the laws of your native country in another, as in the case in the Article, and the case of your comment, both made cock-ups by handling the Law as they would in their own country when in fact, they are dealing with a foreign law.
There are some countries more to the east of here, where arrest by the police and then stonewalling them will lead to severe beatings or worse.
But by all means, carry on with an attitude that works in one country, but will get you killed in another.
Obviously thinking like a Brit..
Here for your pleasure are the Miranda rights. Emphasis is mine:
"You have the right to remain silent; ANYTHING you SAY CAN and WILL be used against you in a court of law".
Trying to claim calls are private while under arrest in America, lol.
American law is thus - "Arrest them, they will eventually say something to someone, and then we have them"
I think this is time to re-appropriate the words of the late great Bill Hicks, originally talking about Marketing, but I think this fits, just replace Marketing with Facebook/Google:
"By the way if anyone here is in advertising or marketing…kill yourself. It’s just a little thought; I’m just trying to plant seeds. Maybe one day they’ll take root – I don’t know. You try, you do what you can.
Seriously though, if you are, do.
Aaah, no really. There’s no rationalisation for what you do and you are Satan’s little helpers. Okay – kill yourself.
Seriously. You are the ruiner of all things good.
No this is not a joke. You’re [going], “There’s going to be a joke coming.” There’s no fucking joke coming. You are Satan’s spawn filling the world with bile and garbage. You are fucked and you are fucking us. Kill yourself. It’s the only way to save your fucking soul. Kill yourself
I know all the marketing people are going, “He’s doing a joke…” There’s no joke here whatsoever. Suck a tail-pipe, fucking hang yourself, borrow a gun from a Yank friend – I don’t care how you do it. Rid the world of your evil fucking machinations.
I know what all the marketing people are thinking right now too: “Oh, you know what Bill’s doing? He’s going for that anti-marketing dollar. That’s a good market. He’s very smart.”
Oh man, I am not doing that, you fucking, evil scumbags!
“Ooh, you know what Bill’s doing now? He’s going for the righteous indignation dollar. That’s a big dollar. A lot of people are feeling that indignation. We’ve done research – huge market. He’s doing a good thing.”
Godammit, I’m not doing that, you scum-bags! Quit putting a goddamn dollar sign on every fucking thing on this planet.
“Ooh, the anger dollar. Huge. Huge in times of recession. Giant market. Bill’s very bright to do that.”
God, I’m just caught in a fucking web.
“Ooh, the trapped dollar, big dollar, huge dollar. Good market – look at our research. We see that many people feel trapped. If we play to that and then separate them into the trapped dollar…”
How do you live like that? And I bet you sleep like fucking babies at night, don’t you?
“What did ya do today, honey?”
“Oh, we made ah, we made ah arsenic a childhood food now, goodnight.” [snores] “Yeah we just said, you know, is your baby really too loud? You know?” [snores] “Yeah, you know the mums will love it.” [snores]
Sleep like fucking children, don’t ya. This is your world, isn’t it?"
At least it goes to show they are not holding onto it forever and doing who knows what with all the information.
I wonder how long it takes AWS or Google to drop the data? I would expect Google to hold onto it, use it, sell it, and re-purpose it, and reuse it and then resell it.
Why are you calling it the April 2019 update? Just because the last update slipped until April, the number was still 1803, and MS are supposedly on a 6 monthly cycle of March and September.
We know they aren't hitting it, but why do you think the next one will be released in April instead of March?
I saw the link, hovered over it, saw a bit.ly mask and laughed.
Not that anything would have happened with noscript and ghostery running. (I still don't know what is on the page as I haven't clicked it).
Despite running noscript and ghostery, I still check every link before I click it and refuse to click shortened URL's.
Never let your guard down, especially on The Register, I mean internet.
" that old DEFINITION of species that we all learned in college biology not 14 years ago"
Some of us did college Biology a damn sight longer than 14 years ago, try 25 years ago.
The problem with the world is nobody ever seems to update their info, so they go around parroting ancient information they learnt at school, even though it has been long since proven to be completely false.
Knowledge, it's one thing to get some, but keeping it accurate and updated is nigh on impossible!!
If you are going by what you perceive as right (you THINK they don't look like twins), rather than the article telling you they are twins.
They are identical twins, because I, unlike lazy you (I don't know if I can call you lazy, you wrote what, a 10,000 word post?), also read articles outside of the register, other sites tend to carry more info on the boffinry bit.
They had their DNA sequenced by Scientists at Yale, at the start of the progam, to create a baseline before they sent tests off to test the validity of these devices.
Rather than backing up the AC with a monster post full of even more crap than the original poster, why don't you just read the article on another site?
Really saves you looking a complete idiot.
Now let's analyse your non-post for a moment. Maybe you only skim-read the article? I say that, because this line seems to make your post redundant..
" Boffins at Yale university, having studied the women's raw DNA data, said all the numbers should have been dead on.
"Despite having virtually identical DNA, the twins did not receive matching results from any of the companies," the investigative team noted in their report this week."
Only in America can really complicated issues be boiled down to two simple choices:
You're a commie Leftie
You're a Fascist Right Wing Nazi.
Most people around the world realise that nothing is black and white, no-one agrees 100% with Republican or Democrat, even Americans. Yet they gotta pin their badge to the flag. Because America.
Most of the world laughs at your petty squabbles over republicans and democrats, to a lot of Europe, your lefties are pretty far to our right, which makes your arguments even more hilarious.
What you need to realise as an American, is that as a country, you are pretty extreme. The rest of the world views you as what you are - extremists. Some of the worst human rights records in history, complete lack of concern for your fellow humans, positively aggressive against any form of helping your fellow humans, unless it benefits America and it's people.
You can't be moderate and straddle the line with us Europeans if you are a right wing American. You might as well be a jihadist, as a country, your views are that extreme, and as a government and people, you are not afraid of terrorizing whoever you feel like, whenever you feel like it.
Those are not the actions of reasonable people, and you can only judge people by their actions...
"Probably the mac originates from inside, because they are spoofing their spoof, and hacking their hack, backtracking their back trace, and then using 4 keyboards!"
You have obviously never seen CSI....
If you had said 4 people using one keyboard, then I would agree with you, but 4 Keyboards? No, their is definitely only one keyboard assigned to the whole show.
"If you put another 20% on sales it would simply result in prices being raised to pay it."
But if they increase the prices, guess what? They are further increasing their revenue, so the price hike would still be short of the taxable amount and Amazon would still have to pay additional out of their pockets. They keep putting the prices up, and it is not until people stop buying products that their revenues start to decrease. By which point they are on an instant path to bankruptcy.
What would actually happen is it would pass about half on to consumers, and half onto suppliers and partners of it's services. Then it won't have to pay any additional tax.
The problem with a back-up non flashable bios, assumes that BIOS are:
a) Without flaws themselves
b) Are valid for the chip you have installed.
If you have a newer chip which required a BIOS update before installation, your method is less than useless, and would only brick the system until a new BIOS could be installed, except that if the BIOS doesn't support your CPU, you can't load the BIOS to change it.
