Just seems rather odd to me. Could do with more details.
The Beeb is a well funded 24hr 365 day service. El Reg is not.
I'll be trying this on an older 32bit single core machine first, and see how it goes from there. Not much else that's 'modern' runs on it effectively so it should be a good test.
What are they really after? I don't believe that they are so stupid as to expect this to fly. Even Joe (really thick) Public is beginning to see the problem here, and also that almost all of these attackers were apparently already under suspicion.
At the risk of tinfoil hattery, I can't help thinking there some other agenda this is masking.
I've had some of my throwaway addresses for too long, so I've just deleted them all and set up new ones :)
Best of both worlds, and so far I've not come across a player that doesn't handle it.
I've still got (and use) an original Casio fx31 calculator. Does that count?
Bespoke code for imaging equipment etc. sometimes requires XP. Getting updates for modern OSs is either eye-wateringly expensive, or impossible. Funding to replace the entire kit is unicorn territory.
Given that their track record seems so similar to a member of the current US government, it wouldn't surprise me if they were given 'to big to fail' status.
A totally flawed 'test' seriously misrepresents his product, and you call that 'petty'.
He would be remiss if he didn't take every means available to protect the company's reputation
So why has it taken so long for anyone to draw attention it?
Those with no sympathy had better start whistling. They could be in for a shock. Some time ago I read about a guy who through no fault of his own went from a comfortable well-funded lifestyle to homeless and penniless in a matter of weeks - sorry, I can't remember the source, but it struck a chord with a much older event.
Never disparage those fallen on hard times, no matter what you *think* is the reason.
In the late 1950s when I was a child we used to go camping in the New Forest whenever we had the chance (it was perfectly OK in those days). We got to see a tramp quite a lot, who seemed remarkably well spoken. Dad was highly suspicious at first, but the guy never asked for anything, and gratefully accepted a cup of tea, and maybe a bun from mum - who eventually got him talking.
Rather a shock for dad, was that this guy had been in Burma at the same time during the war as he was, only when he was demobbed and went home, it wasn't there. The whole area had been flattened, and he'd also lost his entire family.
Apparently he just walked away, and never stopped walking.
P.S: for the doubters. This isn't made up. I was about 9 and remember it very clearly.
I keep seeing 'openshift' without the 'f'
I think we really need AMD to thrive. It's the only way to keep Intel somewhere near honest.
How about guest articles from the ex-vultures?
It'd be interesting to see if their reg-ness has amplified or declined.
Beer of course :)
Good luck... you might need it :o
Phew! It's a good job my favourites are mint Imperials
No. When I'm driving there's mostly no-one sat in the navigator's seat.
This couldn't possibly be abused, could it?
I couldn't run it if I wanted to, but I don't want to anyway... for the same reason I won't run Chrome. I don't want to give either MS or Goog a free ride into all my internet activity.
Generally, it seems the further North you go, the more reasonable people get.
Beer, cos that's pretty reasonable too.
Odd that. Just last week the people I (occasionally) work for got a couple of new desktop computers.
Later this year, I'll almost certainly be buying a new Ryzen based one - once it has had a bit more of a shake-down.
Must be just another blip I guess.
But of course! It has the potential to make a dent in the profits of the mega-corps, so is clearly anti-
I've been watching this from the sidelines, and have become increasingly concerned about the virus called systemd.
I've got a spare machine I can clear out so I'll give this a try ASAP.
All of them do the checks locally, then simply tell the bank "OK all good here."
To get real checks would require all the data concerning the transaction being sent to the bank where a proper examination could be done.
It's not going to happen though. It would require decent bandwidth comms, and would make the bank responsible for errors.
You start by getting some constantan wire and wrapping it round a ceramic rod...
I use one browser for banking, and only banking. Another for on-line purchases and yet another for general casual browsing.
I never run any two at the same time. it's only a small thing but makes me feel a bit safer.
Aren't you also supposed to store the firearms and ammunition separately?
Morons are complaining they don't like being associated with US senators.
I don't even want them to know that I don't want them to know
It actually started in 1989.
How old did you say you were?
What makes you think He'll relinquish his position in 2018. The way he's re-writing the the organisations remit, I wouldn't be surprised if the necessary 'hooks' were already in place to ensure permanent control.
It rather depends on who makes the first move.
PCIe the easy one. Who would have imagined DMA could ever be a problem.
It's interesting that the Post Office, The Royal Mail and BT all come from the same original stock, and all seem to have exactly the same attitude to their
It seems Uber started at the bottom and worked it's way down from there.
Ha! So it wasn't just me then
Have one of these as well as an upvote ->
Looks like he's after the the universe, but the heavens already have a boss.
There seems to be remarkably little regulation over the use of compressed air. There have been countless cases of people being seriously injured (and even killed) by airlines being abused by idiots.
Is the Pope a Catholic?
Do bears poo in the woods?
Do TLAs spy?
Is anyone surprised?
Some years ago, an American friend told me not to try and visit again.
His words were something like. "I know you can't keep your mouth shut when faced with extreme bullshit, and I don't want to visit you in prison".
Although a tiny, tiny step forward, at least one person now understands the dangers of IoT
What was he thinking, with all the very well publicised cases of rogue SysAdmins being thrown in the slammer.
I see now the error of my ways.
I wrote a bit of code from scratch - no copy-paste - and I tested it before putting it out there. But the greatest crime of all was... it worked, and continued to do so for years.
Fortunately the factory closed down recently and the abomination is no more. I'm just hoping my soul is not permanently blackened.
In the UK, if one light has just turned yellow, the other one will still be red, and will remain so until the changing one has turned to red.
If the US is any different, then it is absolutely begging for accidents of this type.
Describes what it does in reasonable detail, and clearly points out the possible issues. Reads just like an honest review to me.
If that was the real reason then it's a stupid one. If someone is putting in good work - regardless of the occupation - it is totally irrelevant what they do in their private life.
If it's not the real reason, then it's even more stupid. They've failed to address a problem, and left themselves open to extremely bad publicity - if not lawsuits.
Had a go with this today. First time I've done anything more than glance at a Windows machine for years. After half an hour of achieving nothing I gave up. There seemed to be no consistency. Nothing made sense... and don't get me started re. tiles!
Every time I see G4S, I think 'gas'
