It's like a hamster trying to juggle snakes
Except it's us that get bitten.
Where are ICANN based?
Could it be the US?
That's fine in Iceland but what about the middle of Essex?
I think they have it!
If they haven't understood it you having been paying attention to them.
Different people need different training.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
While the UK is better than many countries it is far from perfect.
Funnily enough, China fuming, senator cheering after Huawei CFO cuffed by Canadian cops at Uncle Sam's request
A very good analogy.
Is it just me
Or was China complaining about human rights an obscenity?
UK spies: You know how we said bulk device hacking would be used sparingly? Well, things have 'evolved'...
Is anyone surprised?
Didn't think so.
If Tesla made microwaves
They would freeze whatever you put in.
Remember - this is the guy who kept calling one of the volunteer divers who rescued those kids from the cave system a paedophile.
Not a surprise
I test embedded products and last year was doing NTP testing with Wireshark looking for DHCP renewal packets.
I noticed some leap second packets from unknown devices and on a whim opened the addresses in a browser - it was some quite pricey HP laser printers/scanners whose web interface didn't have a default password.
How much has the UK paid to prop up Grexit, bribing Eastern European countries - sorry subsidising - to join the EU?
Israel can join the Galileo program because they pay with money from the US.
Microsoft menaced with GDPR mega-fines in Europe for 'large scale and covert' gathering of people's info via Office
Re: "get a CEO's head on a pike"
How would putting it on a fish help?
Be fair - he is in the matrix.
'Pure technical contributions aren’t enough'.... Intel commits to code of conduct for open-source projects
If proof were needed
Look at a lot of the posts here.
Miles to go
before I sleep. Rest in peace.
This from thieves
The Republicans treat the people of the US as a piggy bank.
The Tax Bill reduced corporate tax from 35% to 21% plus directors can 'pass thought' their money from the company at corporate rate so they have halved the tax on that.
Congress + WiFi =
More stupid little ego games.
Does anyone have some Etch-a-Sketches they can have as laptops?
On the seventh anniversary of Steve Jobs' death, we give you 7 times he served humanity and acted as an example to others
In polite terms
It is extracting the urine.
Six letter words
scare Trump and the cyber czar used words long than eight!
Many years ago I did some work on a system in the gatehouse of a category A prison - a home office design that needed rework then nursing.
Odd place, most of the time it was like a workplace then there would be something or nothing and you remembered what the place was there for.
The gateshouse POs were good to work with but I knew not to go into the prison area.
Good printer and works just fine with third party cartridges.
US cities react in fury to FCC's $2bn break for 5G telcos: We'll be picking up the tab, say officials
Yet another reason
not to move to the US.
The UK isn't perfect but this is typical with regulation.
There are even state unions for all kinds of things such as 'nail technicians' which are basically run by gangsters who get away with massive membership fees.
Re: Porbably not just down due to the FBI
That makes sense.
It is aimed at a less technical audience but a very good review:
I used to be ambivalent about leaving the EU
But this petty dictatorship over domains shows the EU at it's worst.
Re: Compliant but non-functional?
I have had that a few time so stick with Prosafe unless there is a reason to use something else.
Re: Been running PoE Pis for years...
Probably direct power e.g. no device detection etc. but if it works for you then fine.
Device detection is optional on PoE btw.
"Where does luck come into it? Given the historical problems with power on Pis I'd have expected anything in that area to be fully tested with all possible build configurations."
Unfortunately switches that offer the same standards often vary on load.
Personally I don't trust TPLink for PoE, one minor surge near the threshold and I have to power cycle the one I have.
Re: Hats off to 'em...
Especially when we commentards are immature!
Re: If only the the folk at Nvidia were as honest to own up to their mistakes.
"If only the folk at HP/Nvidia were as honest as Eben Upton, to own up to their poor product testing, that has left so many Geforce based laptops dead from poor Geforce GPUs/poorthermal design and the use of lead free solder."
You literally have no idea about modern soldering.
To get BGA connections at the required density requires the solder has extremely precise characteristics and unfortunately the effects resulted in joint fractures after a combination of time, changes in the solder and temperature cycles which arose from the varying workload.
Yes, I worked at Nvidia (a non graphics division) and Jensen was genuinely upset about letting the customers and users down. I even met him once, a nice guy.
There is an EM drive in orbit
Remember that earlier this year a pair of satellites were launched, one with a conventional motor and one with an EM drive.
Let's see how it works in practice.
COCOM strikes again
Remember the Reagan era?
COCOM was supposed to be about security but it was about denying people important components.
Is anyone surprised when it turned out to include basic logic devices? I ended buying Japanese parts and US equipment manufacturers of many kinds had trouble exporting their products.
For sale to the highest bribe
Someone makes a decision despite not knowing anything about how it is to be done or if it can be done.
The important thing is to make a decision when you said you were going to make a decision.
I have known at least one system for HMP establishments which could never work - I know because I had to redesign it for one site.
Service as normal
As long as you get away with thing it is OK.
Like the lack of prosecutions from Hillsborough.
Re: installing vs code on Linux
I wasn't expecting that
Re: The elephant in the room!
"it lacks the meta to understand it does not understand".
Best description I have seen about autonomous vehicles.
Re: what’s with Adam Sandler?
Try The Longest Yard without prejudging it.
Yes, a remake but a very good one.
Lower phone sales
Less land fill and less money thrown away.
I work with industrial Android device testing BTW.
is to live off the investors money?
Let the fines begin!
Up to four percent of turnover.
Word process tax
To subsidise typewriters!
I learned a few weeks ago form someone involved in aircraft satellite comms that now in China the comms needs to be routed via their ground stations while in Chinese airspace.
Technology isn't magic
This message still gets ignored.
We produce an Android based product at work and production apps must be signed with the production key.
Hate to tell you
but the microwave antennae in an aircraft cannot be aimed into the cabin areas, it would be a liability.
I have seen one as well.
Who needs Zorro?
We have El Reg!
