This year was a stroke of genius: the badges contained a retro roleplaying game you could access via USB, 30 LEDs, and other IO ports. You could unlock new RPG levels if you connected your badge to another badge types – human, press, speaker and so forth – with the lights telling you if the link was successful.
Baring in mind the target audience, wouldn't many of them just "help themselves" to the extra levels?

My work burnt out a cable to one of the major company data centres, it turned out that in the late 70s the contractor decided to put in a lower rated cable than it was supposed to. This led to a massive outage (not sure why the redundant systems didn’t work) and allowed IT to convince the senior people to invest in a huge new data centre.

Re: London Riots
One of my friends used to be a cop in the Met; he said that things were a lot worse than the media let and he was very pleased to make it out unscathed. A few years later, he's now decided that a nice rural constabulary is much nicer to work in than the Met (although backup can take up to an hour to arrive!).
Re: Maybe El Reg readers, maybe not.
I hops he feels better soon
Given that their recovery plan involves using backups, some of them up to a year old, it seems at least possible that they may have pinned the target to their own forehead.
They may have also gone that far back in time to make sure that they weren't restoring the trojan. I guess only the people doing the work know for certain though.
But what'd be the pun in that?

Re: One little pill?
It is neither a mutagen nor a promoter and its links to cancer are normally only statistical correlations that frequently have other unhealthy life-style factors associated (heavy drinkers are not known for their healthy eating and exercise plans).
Alcohol itself isn't mutagenic, but the first step in its metabolism produces acetaldehyde which is.
Moreover, tumours love energy and alcohol causes a rapid rise in sugars in the blood.

In other words, in the simulation it did fine – but with the effects of gravity, imperfections in the mechanisms, and other real world effects, the software turned into a butterfingers. Indeed, during testing, the robotic hand broke down dozens of times.
The machine-learning software was trained in a range of simulated environments where some of the variables such as surface friction, the size of the object, lighting conditions, hand poses, textures, and even the strength of gravity were changed randomly. The idea was to at least attempt to prepare the model for the unpredictable universe in which we live.
Surely gravity is a constant force? Or am I missing something obvious?
