Just ignorant, no evidence that he is doing anything sexual to morons. It does make you wonder why anyone votes for him though - as he surely has not kept up with what his constituents actually do or want.

Declaring war on Powerpoint?

Toni the terrible

Powerpoint torture

Both Torture and Powerpoint have limited usefulness, the former however tends to create enemies out of all those it is inflicted on - wether enemies to begin with or not. The latter just bores the stuffing out of people unless kept both short and infrequent.

No one dies during a powerpoint presentation though you may wish to, so it can be a little like a minor torture don't you think?

Of course the chinese spied and are continuing to spy, and the Norks, Sorks, Russia, Moravia, UK, Croats, Serbs etc etc Occasinally you find out what exactly they have been spying on - which is useful in it self.

I am sure no one with a modicum of sense and without an overwhelming need for shineys would use IoT, but I can see Govs eventually requiring you to provide at least read access to telemetics on all cars for insurance / safety / accident stats / think of the children / and 'security'. So enjoy your home brewed computer in your car while you can, it may not be lawful in the future.

Still I wish I had the skillset to play safely with my car innards but I don't - hence the mild envy.

Still if you do want security give up that Smartphone as well and never connect any of your computers to the internet. It could be that the most data secure people will be those not poor enough to get Gov help and not rich enough to buy / use the technological shineys, and of course manage to stay healthy.

UK Home Sec: Give us a snoop-around for WhatApp encryption. Don't worry, we won't go into the cloud

Re: Oh, Oh. Another Home Secretary Gets the GCHQ Power Point Session

But they want to repeal at least large sections of the HR Act, and how long before England (after Scotxit) is not a signatory to the human rights declaration. So, that doesn't mean anything to them.

Re: Here we go again. The 'Claire Perry Test'

I think you are clikely correct about Massod. He was a madman/nut job with suicidal intent who just happened to be Muslim; & therefore must be a terrorist. And so is grist to the Amber-May mill.

We have had white non-muslim nutters in this country that murdered schoolkids for no sane reason, were they then terrorists? What ISIL/Daesh said later means nothing, they like to claim responsibility.

But how would they even know we were here given the distance involved (even our RF droadcasts wouldn't have got there), so they are unlikely to aim at us because of that.

Re: We don't even know what we're looking for

Yes it is just possible we are a abbreation and life normally doesn't get this far in complexity. There may be no sentient aliens anywhere, no truly sentient creatures even here - e.g., Trump.

Re: More Magic than Goldilocks orbit distance...

Evolution, is the only rule ignoring clever watchmakers, and all life will follow it. It is possible that in similar conditions somewhat similar life will arise - in an earth type envionment this may be creatures with two legs two arms and a head (with at least two eyes) but a lot else would be different.

Re: one in a million combination

Yes there are loads of galaxies as the universe is not only infinite but flat, with the possibility of many many other flat univeses a tad too far away to confirm (after all infinity is infinity) - I understand that the world however is an oblate spheroid.

National Audit Office: Brit aircraft carrier project is fine and dandy... for now

Re: Beg, Steal & Borrow

Yes blame the poor sods in the MOD, who can only do what their political masters and SCS want not what is needed. And not only that if they point out the problems sufficiently hard will find their careers torched, whistle blowers are still toast. Not that they are permitted to inform anyone outside, there is after all the Official Secrets Act / DORA etc. This may be a reason why they can't recruit CS into the MOD nor retain either CS or Armed Service Personnel, apart from the drive to the bottom in conditions etc. Still outsouce everything, which is the policy, and everything will be better is that not so. The New Model Army is likely to be a bunch of Mercenarys eventually.

GCHQ dismisses Trump wiretap rumours as tosh

Toni the terrible

Trumpet

Of course the Donald was monitored, certainly before he became POTUS. If there is any surveillance at all he would be included like all Senators / Congress critters / Members of Parliament / Merkel / any influential person. I doubt Obama specifically told the NSA/GCHQ grouping to do so, because he didnt need to do that - and if they didnt (which would be derilect) globally all other technically capable agencies were or were trying. The Donald just makes it easy to do. What is he going to do next, complain that as a fish he finds water to be wet?

tr1ck5t3r - Troll under the bridge?

I like Trolls, they are often unintenionally funny. I try not to feed them. Not saying you are one though, I dont think it is my call.

However your last sentance "And all the while, the population keeps growing, standards keep being lowered and people just dont get it" - some people do get it as this site indicates, its just there is not much you can actually do. I dont know if standards are being lowered, they certainly seem to be breeding. Is the population growing? I did hear there may be peak population coming soonish.
