Brexit campaigner AggregateIQ challenges UK's first GDPR notice

Re: retroactive lawmaking at it's finest.

There is, however the company were given notice that the law was changing and that to compile with the new law they would need to change how they processed data. They didn't change and thus were charged with breaching the new law

It's is bit like the speed limits on a road changing from 30 mph to 20 mph, you would have seen the new signs going up and if you still drive at 30 mph you will be taken to court.

Leeds hospital launches campaign to 'axe the fax'

Ochib

The Electronic Signatures Directive (99/93/EC)

An electronic signature must be:

•uniquely linked to the signatory;

•capable of identifying the signatory;

•created using means that the signatory can maintain under his sole control;

•linked to the data in such a manner that any subsequent change of the data is detectable.

The most common methods of achieving this are to use cryptography (symmetric or asymmetric) technology .

So you will need a encryption system that all the parties agree to and can use. Or you use a fax

Re: Boo Hoo

During her time as Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher openly called a terrorist a "true friend", invited a terrorist into her home for tea, and personally lobbied against a terrorist's prosecution for war crimes.

Thatcher's support for Chile's former torturer-in-chief General Pinochet is no secret; it was something she was proud of. Despite her assertion that “The United States and Britain have together been the greatest alliance in defence of liberty and justice,” Thatcher refused to back down in her support of a man who overthrew a democratically elected government. This was a man who initiated the notorious Caravan of Death, the army unit that travelled the country by helicopter, murdering and torturing the General's opponents.

"I thought all firearms (except licensed shotguns for farmers, hunters and gamekeepers) were banned in the UK? Didn't the Hungerford shooter use an AK47?"

Rifles are also permitted. Not military or semi auto though."

You can shoot an AR-15 in the UK, however it needs to be converted to bolt-action. The University of Texas tower shooting ( 16 people (including one unborn child) dead and 31 injured) was with a bolt action riffle.

"Regulate ammunition supplies.

For personal protection,. you don't need more than one reload. If it takes more than that you've lost."

If I go to the gun range to shoot, I will be shooting more than one reload, On average you would use 100-200 rounds for practice 1-2 times a week. Where would I store the rounds?

Blighty's super-duper F-35B fighter jets are due to arrive in a few weeks

Ochib

Re: why didnt they..

Because you would have needed a 22,000 lb,bomb rather than a 9,250 pound bomb as water has a much higher density than air, which makes water harder to move (higher inertia). It is also relatively hard to compress (increase density) when under pressure. These two together make water an excellent conductor of shock waves from an explosion.

Re: Re:Victorian railways had a few exploding boiler incidents

http://www.watlingtonnorfolk.co.uk/boiler-explosion-1867.html

"

On Tuesday morning, an agricultural engine, employed in thrashing wheat at Watlington, in a field adjoining the Magdalen road, and about 200 yards from the railway station, exploded with a terrific report, killing five men and boys on the spot, and so severely injuring seven more that two of them died a few hours afterwards and others were not expected to survive. The cause of the explosion is clearly ascertained to have been the monstrous, but, it is to be feared, very prevalent practice of tying down the safety valve, in order to get more work out of the engine than it was other wise capable of performing. The poor man who, no doubt was responsible for the act has paid with his life the penalty of his folly, and is therefore beyond the reach of blame; but it may be hoped the moral of his fate and that of his unfortunate companions will not be lost upon the members of that large class of men who have such engines, or steam engines of any kind under their charge."

You mean 7a or the one in between seven and nine. You know, two cubed. Four plus four. Twenty-four divided by three .The one you can't say out loud or else you'll get ate. What do you mean, the ichor god Bel-Shamharoth can't tell the difference between two homonyms like the past tense of the verb "to eat", and the number eight... OK, so they sound identical but have different meanings, that's what a homonym means. Fine, but is this really the time for a grammar lesson?

US, UK cyber cops warn Russians are rooting around in your routers

Ochib

Problem is that most home routers are supplied by the ISP and updated by the ISP.

When I was a Sky customer, i attempted to replace the rebadged netgear router with something a bit more secure. I asked for my ADSL usename/password and was told that they did give that information to the customers as their service would only work with their routers. A few days later there was a report about all the security issues with sky routers.
