"Hi Matt, This is Nigel from O2.
How does the gift of christmas cheer sound! This is the season for forgiveness and we at O2 would like nothing more! :)"
One for Nigel -->
Fortunately for the commentards here Norfolk residents do not constitute a racial group as otherwise I think we'd have a potential hate crime on out hands
Interestingly, a former MP for Norwich got in a lot of trouble for suggesting inbreeding caused a lot of health problems. He was actually a former professional biologist so arguably knew what he was talking about!
Expedited retrievals cost $0.03 per GB and $0.01 per request.
Standard retrievals cost $0.01 per GB and $0.05 per 1,000 requests.
Bulk retrievals cost $0.0025 per GB and $0.025 per 1,000 requests.
Looks like ~256USD to bring back 100TB; however what counts as a "request"? Is each file one request?
>I'm always been a bit bemused by the fact that zebra crossing markings on roads seem to be universally ignored by drivers.
That depends on the country. Here in Switzerland they stop for you; in France drivers are supposed to stop but often don't. Living in a border area I'm always wary of French drivers for that reason.
Anyway, all Liberty Virign Media need to do is firmware upgrade to DOCSIS 3.1 and 250Mbps becomes 2Gbps and no body wants to pay OpenBreach for G.not so fast
This suggests that Liberty Global should be nearly complete with rolling out Docsis 3.1 by the end of the year. No sign of it here in Switzerland yet though.
I'm going to be "stocking up" -->
As well as acknowledging Knuddels' cooperation, the authority's State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Stefan Brink, said it was avoiding the temptation to enter a "competition for the highest possible fines".
The watchdog also wanted to avoid bankrupting the company. "The overall financial burden on the company was taken into account in addition to other circumstances," the authority noted. ®
Shame, a colossal fine that threatens a company's existence is exactly the thing that would make organisations take security seriously.
The only thing smart meters do is make it more visible to the consumer how much energy they are using
There is a depressing number of people in the UK who have to chose between food and heating in the winter; some people have even died of cold because of this. I can see how having a readout quickly available to them may make things worse.
A Dutch system was found to give incorrect high readings for devices with dimmer controls.
The EWB (Basel utilities) company had to change a load of electricity meters a few years ago because all meters fitted in a certain time period were faulty.
Poorer households in the DE socioeconomic groups are keener to go online with their smartphones rather than PCs, possibly indicating lack of broadband penetration (as Ofcom speculates) or a simpler user experience (as your reporter speculates).
Or maybe because mobile phones appear "free" to people who take out contracts; as opposed to computers which "cost money (ie you pay upfront).
Also, the number of people who don't realise that it's cheaper to buy a mobile phone upfront and then go "contract free" is astounding.
The "VPNFilter" variant "still tries to brute-force factory default usernames and passwords via telnet",
if a Hadoop system has a publicly exposed YARN service, "it is not a matter of IF but a matter of WHEN your service will be compromised and abused".
Why would any even partially competent sysadmin still do these things?
Who'd have thought it?
This was the reason I created a Dropbox account (many years ago). Keep the updated keepass file on Dropbox for convenient access. For those moments without internet, you'll have the last local copy on your device.
I have a similar setup. I have a pair of KeepassX databases; one for work, t'other for home stuff. The work one (keepassx is the approved standard) gets backed up to OneDrive for Business (again approved). The home stuff lives on a NAS and also gets backed up to a cloud.
The only downsides are the potential for $CLOUD to get hacked and then the encryption cracked; the other is manually entering >20 character random passwords onto an IOS device manually soon gets old...
