Re: former coworker
I'm sure the cops will insist on a line-up.
"Microsoft's positioned Honolulu as a more modern face for Windows Server, a way of surfacing useful PowerShell functions without having to resort to the CLI "
That's called a GUI.
It's NOT an accidental bug.
It's an intentional NSA backdoor. Please get your terminology right.
"Surely the internet is big enough to contain all human intelligence."
It does, but it is dwarfed by human ignorance, arrogance and cute cat videos.
I'm sure her comfort animal would be welcome on a train. In the baggage compartment.
If It's So Flipping Bad?
Why did they all vote for it..??? FFS
Can it play Crysis?
An Added Dimension
"Thanks to growing chip complexity, compounded by hardware virtualization, and reduced design validation efforts, Luu argued, the incidence of hardware problems could be expected to increase."
Let's not forget people are actually actively looking for flaws now instead of blindly believing Intel marketing blurbs.
"The Register asked Google if anyone there would care to respond. We've not heard back."
The gal responsible for that left.
But... But... But...
There's books that need selling...
911 x 8,000... Sorry. World Police reference.
That number should be 8,000,000,000
What Annoys Me...
FOUR different hardware manufacturers have EXACTLY the same flaw in their hardware. Are we supposed to believe this occurred naturally? I'm really finding that hard to believe.
I sense NSA or US Gov fingerprints on this one boys and girls.
Re: Unimpressed by Gnome
"This is why I switched to Kubuntu (Ubuntu with KDE) when they announced the switch."
I've been on Kubuntu for many years now. Gnome never grabbed my attention. It always seemed the blander choice.
US law is in effect everywhere.
Your nations laws end at your countries border. Yet the Americans see nothing wrong with that arrangement.
They can lose 99 votes, but only have to win one to get what they want.
They got it, now we're screwed. Democracy just slipped a little closer to oblivion.
Re: Memory Issues
We like to use:
I. D. Ten T
Write it out as you say it.
Re: Golden rule
$250 million settlement in court ten years from now, or buy the entire company for $50 million today?
Which do you think Apple will choose?
Down with this sort of thing.
Couldn't be over-priced crap hardware... Perish the thought.
Re: It's great to know the price of everything ...
Ditch the American F-35's and you'll have billions to play with.
And this is why net neutrality will eventually be lost. The corps can lose many times, but only have to win once.
It is now beer o'clock. Good night.
Re: Breaking News
IBM's cloud isn't that fluffy.
Re: Ministry of Truth
We have always been at war with Oceania.
Where governments only see what they want to see.
Life in prison in the US or a safe trip to Moscow followed by an accidental slip in the shower a week or so later to keep him quiet?
Which will he choose?
"Winner sighed at one point, and agreed leaking the file would likely reveal the NSA's sources and techniques to its enemies."
It would also reveal illegal surveillance to the American people. A much larger crime in their eyes.
Re: I believe the word we are all struggling to vocalise is ...
"If he was selling to France and the rest of Europe, why the hell did he supply anyone in the US?
"If he hadn't done that he wouldn't have committed a crime in the US"
The fun begins on p52.
Fire Bjork out of a cannon
Won't do a damned thing about drones, but you will see Bjork fired out of a cannon.
It's not a problem.
This only affects people who buy iPhones and as such will not affect the vast majority.
This is the beginning of the end.
Don't fret. The corporations will be happy.
There are certain positions people get into while in bed (SFW) where a metal roof slamming down might cause serious injury.
I've never dreamed of an IT department that big. Ridiculous that they still have more IT workers left over then are in my current company total.
They need a leaner and meaner model.
44 PCIe lanes. Two x16 PCIe GPU's in SLI consume 32 of those lanes leaving 12 lanes for only three x4 PCIe SSD, NVMe, etc.
Keep your 36 cores. This is a kneejerk response to RyZen Threadripper and its 64 PCIe lanes. No serious gamer would touch this limiting hardware.

And when the tablet is shot out in battle, how do you call for help?
Sometimes there's a good reason to have someone with a bit of knowledge on the bridge, especially in the military.
Comments about Jodie Whittaker are hilarious. Considering the story is about a Time Lord, the idiocy being spewed is from the 18th century.
Increasing surveillance of the Internet and phones should fix situations like this, right?
Hmmm, my new PC purchase price is planned to be over four times the average. I don't think they are getting as good as they can get.
I hear the cross-feed to the nearest MILSAT is working perfectly for uninterrupted surveillance opportunities.
An Added Bonus
Putting aside whether the cargo hold of a plane is any safer for a bomb to explode than the cabin for the moment.
Unguarded laptops in checked bags can be outside of your view for hours. The contents can be searched and copied by TSA or delegates at their leisure.
But I'm sure that has nothing to do with the "threat."
“The arrests have come about as a result of work by the City of London Police and forensic and investigative services provided by Microsoft analysing tens of thousands of Action Fraud reports and working with other affected organisations such as BT, to attempt to trace the source of the problem,” said the City cops in a statement.
Microsoft are now doing criminal investigations? If evidence isn't generated and validated by the plod, I'm not sure that will stand up in a court. (?)
Re: Imminent danger.
This is the most ignorant and short sighted policy ever.
Fight for your rights now, because your government no longer cares about your freedoms.
If it was an American bank, he'd be on his way to Gitmo.
This is a complicated issue.
Can Jeremy Piven explain it to me please?
Best Job Ever
This reminded me of a job I saw in 1999. Was a 6 month contract worth $120,000 for a Y2K IT specialist to oversee corporate preparations for the New Year.
Contract end date was December 31st, 1999
I didn't apply as I'd just started a new job, but man was I tempted to get that easy money.
Mrs. Peacock did it in the Conservatory with an iPhone.
"passengers were told to pack their essentials in their hand luggage and get on their planes as planned."
Anyone who travels without essentials in their hand luggage is asking for it. Bags go astray all the time. So often, I assume I'll not have my checked bags for 48 hours and plan accordingly.
The more you tighten your grip, the more merchandise will slip through your fingers.
Libraries are next. The Dewey Decimal System tells people where to go to find copyrighted books which is exactly how The Pirate Bay works.
After that comes cops giving directions.
Every senior manager who signed off on the validation tests should be scheduled to be put on the first manned flights.
Literally put their asses on the line.
But, but, but, GCHQ does this too... I'm confused.
