Why would you want to use a well implemented version of the service you want!!!!

Why wouldnt you want to use a web based version and pay for it ?????

Why wouldn't you want to use a service that kills off the hooks you are using randomly ?

Why wouldn't you just use a BBS

This is the final straw, evil Microsoft. Making private GitHub repos free? You've gone too far


Re: Not impressed

Of courser JDX because why wouldnt they try and kill it off for firefox....

Stupid people everywhere :(


Re: Skype is also 'Free'

They already do, this is the reason they can give private repos away for free

Some people just love to hate

Tech Savvy Millenials

This is the problem, just because they can use facebook, twitter and insta they think they are tech savvy....

But they are no more tech savvy then the 80 year old lady next door, they are not savvy otherwise they would not post all of their data to facebook, twitter and google.

Tech Savvy means they know something of technology, and they really dont,

They know how to use a tool, like a telly or a radio....

None of them could trouble shoot networking issues, email issues, printer issues etc etc

They have a functioning knowledge / not an understanding knowledge

How does that work with Developers ?

.NET Core 2.1 – huh, yeah – what is it good for? Bing, apparently


And as a .NET Dev I know exactly how much more efficient it is than the full fat framework, so as I said maybe put a name to your post or be ignored


Well I would maybe take your opinion abit more seriously but you are posting as anonymous so......


Down voted you because it is not just how Bing! works.

It is showing off how far the framework has come which you seem to of ignored completely.

Re: "showing Redmond is taking seriously the creeping advance of Apple"

I have this set for all updates, but due (possibly) to this maybe bricking the machine it gave me a warning that this has to be done during office / working hours

Of course I used this as an opportune time to play with the new DataLogic box that I had delivered

Asylum seeker spreadsheet data blurt: UK Home Office loses appeal to limit claimants


Ripe For False Claims

I agree with the ruling in part, but I believe this could open up the flood gates for a lot of false claims.

If a lead complainant was to make a claim and suddenly 10 members all suddenly come out of the wood work, where do we stand ?

I think of course the government should be held liable as in some cases this really could be a dangerous incident.

But at the same time maybe it should be limited to lead complainant and spouse.

June 2018, and Windows Server can be pwned with a DNS request


Re: So wheres you unbreakable code mate

Replying to the spectre point.

Not the dns issue, as both related to Microsoft I assumed he was commenting on both.

So as there was no clear separation I felt no need to make a clear distinction in my response


So wheres you unbreakable code mate

So Kabukiwookie where is your unbreakable code mate.....

Oh thats right Keyboard Warrior Ho....

Scrap London cops' 'racially biased' gang database – campaigners


Re: Sadly

Well said, sort of what I was trying to get at with my post but worded much better


Re: Sadly

I wont post anonymously, I have no reason too.

I dont agree with the necessary breakdown in the DB and numbers, but as you pointed out. A large proportion of the crime (stabbings / killings) in the last year have been black on black, indian / pakistani on the same etc etc

It has all been related to Gangs or Drugs (both go hand in hand), is it because of a perpetual loop going on, young kids from poor neighbourhood get involved in crime, go to prison, have kids who are then brought up in that life, and then the loop begins again.

There are plenty of white young men who are criminals, but they tend to be less gang affiliated for one reason or another.

I grew up in Brixton in the 90's before all the trendy cafes etc moved in, it was a lot of black on black crime even back then.

But what do I know, just an opinion

Re: equal opportunity offender


I dont hate men or women differently they are all c*nts


Re: Time to grow up and grow a skin

Oh Rich 11 I assume you have had experience with that part of the UK Justice system....

You know that no matter what if a woman leaves their partner and takes the kids they have every right for the child not to see their dad unless the woman says ok, or you pay a large amount of money for court.

Doesnt matter whether there was violence etc in the relationship

Or how about there was violence but it was the woman abusing the man, guess what it doesnt fucking matter the woman still holds all the cards....

Inequality is can go both ways the same as sexism and racism...

I still really dont understand societies clear ignorance of this fact

Openreach and BT better watch out for... CityFibre after surprise £537m takeover deal


Re: Sigh .....

Ok no your right, the issue is it wasnt sold off to multiple parties it was just handed everything and left to get on with it, without the oversight that a government body may of had.

Maybe we have had more advances but I have also seen them just become a fat monopoly with no reason to do anything, that was until Local Loop Unbundling come along and they actually realised they had to compete.....

So maybe if that had been done in the beginning we would of had a quicker realisation of network increases in both capacity and reliability


Re: Sigh .....

I think we all know the only plans they have is for us as the public to fund it and for them to reap the rewards.....

This is why they should still be owned by us rather than investors.


But But..... Openreach is not BT

Obviously this is bullshit.....

Openreach have been in a monopolistic position for too long and as such have moved at a glacial pace.

Now they will become very worried, if CityFibre can get some of them government funds for fibre what will Openreach do....

As stated above supposedly BT doesn't affect Openreach as they are separate entities......

Apple turns hat around, sits backwards on chair, pitches iPad to schools


Price Doesn't Matter

The price doesn't matter to the school.

My eldest who goes to an academy was told he would need an iPad for some lessons and that the school dictated this.

When I queried how he would afford such a luxury, they explained that I could purchase it on a finance plan and they would happily lock it down etc so it could only be used for school work.

So I would get the privilege of buying an iPad at an inflated cost and not be able to use anything other than school work on it.

I along with about 100 other parents refused, why should we pay nie on £600 just so my child can learn.

I explained that he would have a chromebook and that was that.

It took the school 2 years to stop trying to push it as a requirement

WordPress is now 30 per cent of the web, daylight second


Re: How do they know...


This is just one of a myriad of tools that will tell you what a site is run on via some http requests etc

To be honest I hate wordpress for the reason that anyone can make a dynamic content based website that will let the world + dog do things that professional developers have spent years learning to do properly (mostly)

There is at least 1 major Wordpress outbreak each year because of badly coded extensions or the install not being setup properly etc

Did somebody say Brexit? Cambridge Analytica grilled: Brit MPs' Fake News probe


Re: *wah-wah* They started it!

I get what you are saying and agree to an extent....

But if it is true and that was the case, why wouldn't you be upset that you were being pulled over the coals and the other team wasn't...

I take it more of a look everyone does it not just us and no one cared when it was the 1st black president or possibly the 1st woman president

On the Brexit side of things..... Well you either voted to leave or you didnt and your whole view of the situation will be skewed in the way you voted

Putting the urgency in emergency: UK's delayed emergency services network review... delayed


EE Run Network

Now I have an EE mobile and would not use it as my only way to contact the emergency services, the reception is terrible to non existent in multiple parts of the UK that I would (stupidly) of thought would be 100% coverage, I barely get 3G let alone 4G connection in some of the largest cities in the UK

And dont we constantly hear about how the Russians / Norks etc could kill millions by messing with our power grid...

What do you think the impact would be if they took down the emergency services network....

Or EE decide to do it themselves, have you ever dealt with EE billing :/

Re: Idiots...

Cant find the article, but their CEO / Lead Developer Lefteris has actually been pulled up on this previously and is alluded to in the main subredit that this all kicked off in

Google reveals Edge bug that Microsoft has had trouble fixing


Re: You Beijing didn't know?

Actually pretty regularly, There are a lot of chinese / korean hackers who go to the hacking summits blackhat etc

And a lot of the browser bypasses are done by these guys and are generally reported to the browser people guys pretty swiftly....

Now I dont know if that is only x% and they keep the rest behind but they are definitely one of the larger groups of whitehats that dont act like google and just unless all hell after 90 days

Chrome adblockalypse will 'accelerate Google-Facebook duopoly'


Re: re: Could googles actions be considered anti-competitive

Im not sure if it would be classed as anti competitive as they are following standards set out by the good advertising body or whatever it is called.

Yes Google are part of that body but they are doing what a lot of internet behemoths class as good ads

So you can still have ads just dont be dicks

That terrifying 'unfixable' Microsoft Skype security flaw: THE TRUTH


I think it was the researcher

I think that Microsoft knew what would happen, I assume the researcher messaged Microsoft to tell them that he was releasing this information .....

Oh what no he didnt because he wanted the internet points and fame it would get him...

Microsoft are not the company they used to be they are getting better with Satiya at the helm

And the sooner people realise that the better

Dont get me wrong they still fuck me off continuously..... Skype for business doesnt store the previous chat in the same window so have to go through Outlook to find them

Some of the forced updates are annoying but because of people not updating their shit and then moaning at microsoft for insecure software....

As I said nowhere near as bad as they were, but you are the sort of prick who would go around going Micro$hit etc fucking dickhead

Crypto-gurus: Which idiots told the FBI that Feds-only backdoors in encryption are possible?


Open source

Ok so the government's that want the big companies to do this well that is fine... for the tech enlightened populace

At the end of the day as technical people we will find / develop our own such as bcrypt / scrypt for hashing etc.

Trucrypt / veracrypt these are all things that are developed by people not companies.... now I remember the issues with trucrypt and the worries that it was backdoored

My point is even if they do get these access protocols the enemy (take that as you will) will just moved to one without a backdoor

EE unveils shoebox-sized router to boost Brit bumpkin broadband


To be honest no worse than the 1mb I get at the moment

I live in East Sussex, where we have an almost 100% FTTC which is great.....

Accept that due to Openreach / BT who ever all the lines are oversubscribed.....

So out of the part of the village I live in there are about 100 homes all wanting fibre but are stuck with 1-2mb ADSL

Now my question is....

WTF have they not installed more capacity ???/

100 * £20 * 12 = £24000

Thats not a bad return on investment as it would be substantially less than that to install extra capacity

But then I have to pay £18 a month to get 1-2mb so what do they care, 100 * £2 * 12 = £2,400

So 24,000 - 21,600 = 2,400 so I guess the £2,400 is not worth the hassle :/
