Re: You got the chainsaw! Find some meat...
Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun.
Not one to besmirch the Great Man's memory; but didn't the double barrelled shotgun only appear in Doom 2?
Re: It was great fun
I liked Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon for that reason. They got rid of most of the annoying stuff and just made it fun.
£1500ish would probably come in very useful if you've just lost your job.
I remember the "datacentre in a container" idea.
Wouldn't "Lotus Notes dissolved by HCL" have been a good headline?

Ahh the Oxygen of publicity

>If you want a laugh though there's a chap on there claiming to be "Nigel from O2" who is doing some expert trolling of the outraged masses...
"Hi Matt, This is Nigel from O2.
How does the gift of christmas cheer sound! This is the season for forgiveness and we at O2 would like nothing more! :)"

Re: 5G skeptics
anti-science nutjobs will be out claiming 5G is somehow far more deadly than LTE, wifi, bluetooth and all the other terrible radiation we are bathing in daily.
I heard that 400-700nm is the worst radiation wavelength...
The PREMIUM and ADVANCE models have free downloadable Toshiba Storage Backup Software and Storage Security Software for password protection and automated backup.
For a drive that's designed to be portable (and therefore more susceptible to theft / loss), that's rather poor.

If there are pubes flying around then things are going pretty wrong

Well as long as he’s got a helmet then what’s the problem?
Why are they using resellers? Surely an organisation the size of the DoD gains nothing from them and could save money by negotiating direct?
Moore's law being revived? Thank goodness for that, I was worried I'd have to learn to programme efficiently...

Since you metaframe it like that...
Re: Quick, more boiling oil!
There are similar junk "surveys" doing the rounds of Facebook etc. these days too
Q: If Pesky Pepper had a peek at patient papers, at how many patient papers did Pesky Pepper peek? A: 231
Fortunately for the commentards here Norfolk residents do not constitute a racial group as otherwise I think we'd have a potential hate crime on out hands
Interestingly, a former MP for Norwich got in a lot of trouble for suggesting inbreeding caused a lot of health problems. He was actually a former professional biologist so arguably knew what he was talking about!
He is a twat, yes. But easily the most unlikable? I guess you have forgotten about such glorious sportsmen as John Terry, Joey Barton, and of course Ched Evans and other criminals.
Not forgetting Andy Murray or Chris Frome

Re: Retrieval time
Expedited retrievals cost $0.03 per GB and $0.01 per request.
Standard retrievals cost $0.01 per GB and $0.05 per 1,000 requests.
Bulk retrievals cost $0.0025 per GB and $0.025 per 1,000 requests.
Looks like ~256USD to bring back 100TB; however what counts as a "request"? Is each file one request?
Re: Sennheiser does other stuff too
Thanks for the Headsetup
>I'm always been a bit bemused by the fact that zebra crossing markings on roads seem to be universally ignored by drivers.
That depends on the country. Here in Switzerland they stop for you; in France drivers are supposed to stop but often don't. Living in a border area I'm always wary of French drivers for that reason.
>Being from the UK the concept of jaywalking is bizarre.
Having grown up in Cornwall, I found it odd to have to stop doing it when I started at university...
Re: G.fail - Try getting that on Alu
Anyway, all Liberty Virign Media need to do is firmware upgrade to DOCSIS 3.1 and 250Mbps becomes 2Gbps and no body wants to pay OpenBreach for G.not so fast
This suggests that Liberty Global should be nearly complete with rolling out Docsis 3.1 by the end of the year. No sign of it here in Switzerland yet though.
I'm about 150m from the cabinet. I'm in!
Hopefully someone will come and let you out soon
It appears Epyc, Graviton, Cavium's ThunderX2, and other competitors, are, here and there, chipping away at that Intel market share. Pun intended. ®
I didn't think that joke was armful, core puns please...

Re: If true,
I'd recommend rm -rf for considerable storage savings
As well as acknowledging Knuddels' cooperation, the authority's State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Stefan Brink, said it was avoiding the temptation to enter a "competition for the highest possible fines".
The watchdog also wanted to avoid bankrupting the company. "The overall financial burden on the company was taken into account in addition to other circumstances," the authority noted. ®
Shame, a colossal fine that threatens a company's existence is exactly the thing that would make organisations take security seriously.
I work in IT, what's soap?
Re: Smart meters do not save energy
The only thing smart meters do is make it more visible to the consumer how much energy they are using
There is a depressing number of people in the UK who have to chose between food and heating in the winter; some people have even died of cold because of this. I can see how having a readout quickly available to them may make things worse.
Re: smart meter != reduction in energy consumption
A Dutch system was found to give incorrect high readings for devices with dimmer controls.
The EWB (Basel utilities) company had to change a load of electricity meters a few years ago because all meters fitted in a certain time period were faulty.

A simple sticker pointing out how the jam detection had been disabled could have saved the poor lad from the massive tear-down/rebuild,
Baring mind the topic of the article, wouldn't a CAT scan have worked better?

>I notice Currys still sell a £50 goldplated optical audio cable.
"Directional ethernet cables" are still a thing in some Audiophile circles...
Poorer households in the DE socioeconomic groups are keener to go online with their smartphones rather than PCs, possibly indicating lack of broadband penetration (as Ofcom speculates) or a simpler user experience (as your reporter speculates).
Or maybe because mobile phones appear "free" to people who take out contracts; as opposed to computers which "cost money (ie you pay upfront).
Also, the number of people who don't realise that it's cheaper to buy a mobile phone upfront and then go "contract free" is astounding.
The "VPNFilter" variant "still tries to brute-force factory default usernames and passwords via telnet",
if a Hadoop system has a publicly exposed YARN service, "it is not a matter of IF but a matter of WHEN your service will be compromised and abused".
Why would any even partially competent sysadmin still do these things?
Re: Lame duck.
I rather suspect the current administration will no longer be an issue come 2020.

Re: Keepass + Dropbox
This was the reason I created a Dropbox account (many years ago). Keep the updated keepass file on Dropbox for convenient access. For those moments without internet, you'll have the last local copy on your device.
I have a similar setup. I have a pair of KeepassX databases; one for work, t'other for home stuff. The work one (keepassx is the approved standard) gets backed up to OneDrive for Business (again approved). The home stuff lives on a NAS and also gets backed up to a cloud.
The only downsides are the potential for $CLOUD to get hacked and then the encryption cracked; the other is manually entering >20 character random passwords onto an IOS device manually soon gets old...
