They used to ...
What I want to know is how much the traders paid the software engineer to make that mistake ?
A couple of mars bars *?
* other confectionery is available
It occurs to me maybe the UBER software was asking the driver what was in front of it on the road ?
Also, you know, the horn could have been used to signal to the cyclist ... why didn't the system activate the horn ....
Why doesn't it at least chroot into a safe(r) environment ...
That's really poor :-
1. Testing installation on live network without validating on test network.
2. No deployment plan
3. No approval for required changes to the network.
4. For something attached to the network no approval by network security.
Don't worry he is actively working on that one
Lots of things :
1. Potential failure of the light, current consumption too much
2. Actual failure of the light (no light coming when there should be a light)
3. With a small battery failure of power.
4. meshing together @night to only come on when there is a car /person near the road
5. Placing a pollution monitor on the light, and use this for active traffic management.
This should be simple
1. create a set of birthdays since 1938
2. run date selection routine
3. check output matches known result.
Of course they say its an "Algo" issue because that makes it sound clever and all modern like, when it is a simple coding error which has been known about since dot.
I hope the contractor who coded this pays NHS compensation
Why NASA don't have an archival department whose job is to make all data from all spacecraft available on the latest media, this data must be more or less priceless (spent an awful lot of $$$$ getting there) and to have it sat on old media is a crying shame.
No sign of any movement of actual FTTP from anyone anywhere, just marketing BS. If BT^H^HOpenReach have plans to reach 20% of UK housholds by 2020 they only have 19 months to do it
ahem ... billion quid for ten mp votes
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 ...
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
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
Probably on a private G5 on the way to the USA right now
sudo dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/sda
ahem Rudder Reversal on the 737 nearly got the type grounded
best plan is to have a secondary ISP such that you know if they *both* go down at the same time something fishy is going on
Is Game Over
That the IPAD apps didn't flag that he was flying into marginal conditions given his licence.
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.
Quad Erat Demonstrandum
Utility Bills : who gets printed utility bills these days ? and i am sure they can be faked
Quite trackable (if it exists) i'd say, just look for that spot in the sky emitting a rather lot of high energy neutrons
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
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 ?
