Data exfiltrators send info over PCs' power supply cables

SiFly

Meh

Again any sort of physical access to the computer provides a means of getting information out of it though you still need malware running on the computer in the first place ...

Manchester Arena attack: National Mutual Aid Telephony system failed

SiFly

Not tested

Clearly this was not tested, they should refund the money between contract being awarded and the issue fixed. Literally anyone can offer an emergency service, the proof of the contract is when you actually have to use it

White line followers

notice those two apparently well maintained white lines on either side of the vehicle, wonder what would happen if someone had a bit of fun with some black and then white paint

BlackBerry unveils bold new strategy: Suing the c**p out of Facebook

The patent system is just there to make lawyers rich, if you look at how the patent office it pretty much rubber stamps anything bar the most outrageous patents and then approves them.

If you want to fight/defend a patent then you need a lawyer.

National Museum of Computing rattles the bucket: Help shift war-winning proto-puter

SiFly

Tourist Trap

When I visited Bletchley Park I was really really disappointed with very little explanation of how they actually did the decryption and the processes involved and how their processes evolved as the war progressed.

I suppose a good summary of this place is in that they put a speaker next to the pond where the boat was attached to make sounds of a boat gently rubbing against the platform as well the sound of aircraft flying close.

At the end of my stay i felt distinctly ripped off, the only good point being a raspberry pi showing videos of the pigeon war

STOP! It's dangerous to upgrade to VMware 6.5 alone. Read this

SiFly

Validation

Whatever happened to software having doing a validation check prior to running an upgrade, i.e. are all my upgrade requirements in place, does everything look right prior to the upgrade and can the rollback data in place.

For heavens sake isn't modern software capable of preventing such FAILS, rather than giving some poor sap a 300 page document to follow, or are the writers of the software just being cheap ?
