Re: Trade deals with the EU
Interesting. A web search for the term seems to indicate a scholarship granting outfit. This leads me to presume (why not) a large number of college winks made great use of that grant money.

For some reason the update installed fine on my ancient Ipad 2 (64GB version) via over
No issue during the process.
Updated from 9. whatever was the prior version.
That said, I've had some apps that normally never hang, do just that since the update.
Sum Ting Wong.
If you read this and have yet to update and are not concerned much about the security issues,
I'd avoid this update until they do a point fix release later.
If you are so inclined to use your snatch for a firearms (handgun) holster
do so with only a uncocked revolver or with a semi automatic that is
striker fired as in Glock type designs!
If using a revolver make sure it is of modern design that has a hammer
Your precious will be safe and no unexpected discharge.
Keep it snug, girls.
I'd vote for him, just to shake the GD tree. That coming from my
traditional conservative/ libertarian mindset of past 45 years.
But if he ever offered free SIM cards for everyone that granted free internet
access and free phone service for 'life', I'd decline. Just a word to the wise.
If you do see that offer, invest in a underground bunker.
If you get the reference, gratz.
You beat me by 2 hours. I just saw this article and the first
thing that popped into my airy head was that is obviously a
GIANT SPACE LIMPET.
Which was all I was going to say.
Your expansive statement went above and beyond.
Even Hoagland of Pyrimidiots of Mars fame couldn't beat that.
And when I checked my FIrefox install on Win 7 it claims that version 16.xx I had installed was
'Up To Date".
Useless information that is wrong, thanks Firefox.
Yah, for those that need to know update, latest version is 220.127.116.11.
I don't know why Firefox Plugin manager can't be bothered to stay up to date in some automated
fashion. My Secunia PSI caught the fact that the Adobe Flash here was out of date.
Don't forget to untick the malware extra bonus addon, Mcafee and grab the 'other versions'
for IE and Chrome. What a effing mess.
That was my experience with Foxit after years of using it with no issues.
One day a update arrived. I installed it.
A whole nest of adbars were installed on each browser I have on this system, FIrfox(primary)
IE hardly used and Chrome even less used.
In each case I found it impossible to totally remove the adbar. IT returned after reboots on Firefox,
and in the case of chrome I never did figure out how to remove it. IT always returned.
At the time I was using Norton Security, it was of course useless . That prompted me to install
Malware Bytes, it found the adware that it properly listed as a malware.
Removed it and I solved the problem. Note it did require a reboot and ANOTHER run of Malware
Bytes to totally eradicate.
I'll never use Foxit again. I've moved on to Sumatra. I have no idea if it is secure or not but
it works for the PDF's I read so far.
For those that say adbars addons like that are not malware, you are most likely part of the scum bag industry doing that sort of thing. It is malware if it acts like malware.
Ah, it isn't a problem at that people in general don't bother to read contracts. Nah.
Nor is it a problem that people sign up despite reading the obvious pitfalls in said contract.
Nah, it couldn't possibly be the people.
Like this idiot, elected by a bunch of idiots to represent them:
What can you do, what can you do?
Don't buy said contract or live with consequences of ones stupidity.
RE: Evil Auditor on getting mug shots of 'innocent' people.
Every time I've had my picture taking for :
Texas Drivers License,
Concealed Carry Permit,
Student ID (that was decades ago for me)
Mad Magazine ID.
The government gets my mugshot, in living color. If they have been doing due diligence
over the decades they even have a database of what I looked like 30 years ago.
So, it is NOT surprising they have a mugshot of you, innocent or not.
On that same page there is a link pointing to the direct downloadable 'small' version . A mere 150 or so
megabytes for the TIFF format version.
Quite viewable using XNVIEW freeware (for individuals) image viewer to view the image zoom and pan that way.
I was quite disappointed with the online panoramic tool when I went to that site. On my 24" 1920x1200 screen the tiny view box was worse than a waste of my time. I went direct to the direct download to view local.
I don't understand why anyone would not want to view that at the largest size possible.
First thing that popped into my head when reading this is to look forward
to a upcoming episode of World Dumbest Heists on TruTV (a cable channel here in USA)
featuring the idiots that pulled this off.
How long will it take Apple to find the devices once they are turned on and access a network?
Pity, the criminals these days seem to be dumber and dumber. Course that brings to mind
the article the other day that asserts we humans are dumber than our ancestors from 2000 years ago.
Make it as simple as possible, but no simpler.
I think Einstein would have said that if saw the 3.0 Secunia beta.
Within minutes I had reverted back to 2.x Secunia.
If you are a Secunia PSI user, just be aware this is an intentional design
of Secunia. They seem to think the typical user is too daft to use the information
presented in the 2.x series and is mentally overburdened by seeing anything other
than a white screen with a green shaded equivalent of a smiley face.
I think they figured their next demographic audience is the Xbox and PlayStation
type generation. They could be right. I run into that type all the time on the net, they
are extremely ignorant of PC usage in general. How they even manage to turn them on
is somewhat of a mystery to me...
So, you have been warned. Try it!
Only plus I could see, was the uninstall was as painless as the install. 2.x managed
to remove 3.x and all was good again.
Your Mileage May Vary **
** Distance of measurement used in Texas.
Oh, and if your a PC user and NOT using Secunia, do yourself a favor and check it out.
Without the PCI inspector I'd never keep up with security risk ridden software on my PC.
Yah, most of the time it is Adobe . Go figure.
I don't have time to mess with something I wont use. V3 is for people who do
not want to know anything. There is NO detail provided byt v3.
V2 provides information on the programs, etc.
I downloaded it, looked at it for 5 minutes and deleted it, went back to v2.
No thank you.
And why the hell a anonymous coward gets posted and my post is not even listed is curious.
I suppose I should not admit I was from Texas. Some Brit bias I suppose.
Down here where I buy gasoline in Texas we have to enter the postal zip code
where the credit card is registered in.
In fact, I see this sort of requirement on other CC swiping machines in some other
vendor machinery. One that comes to mind is the RedBox DVD,Blu-Ray dispensing
So that is sort of a primitive pin system already. The thief has to guess or know the
correct zip. Course it is a no brainer if they stole your wallet too.
Whatever pin system they use I hope it is at least one digit deeper than the
mere 4 numbers that is used today.
At the least the system should use a mix of numeric and alphabetic and be 6 chars in
I just pulled the six chars in length out of my ass, but figure it is short enough to remember
and at least long enough to beat the mere 9,999 the current system allows. Less than that
when you consider so many idiots use 11111 and other common numeric sequences,
common ones that idiots use.

The plasma TV my next door neighbors have definitely interfere with my radio 'kit''
Kit being a Kenwood TX480 30khz to 60mhz transceiver.
Most of the interference is on the 'medium wave' bands from 1.6mhz on up through
14mhz. AM broadcast band here in the USA is just around 680khz to around 1.7mhz
and when they fire up the noise maker in the evenings the weaker AM stations can be
Me, I use a LCD 48inch set. Prior to learning about the inherent noise factor
involved with plasma sets I was a fan of that tech for the inherent better contrast.
But, being a radio amateur operator and all means I have an awareness of RFI generating
monster tech. The general public grubs wont' be aware of such issues or even care if they did.
Replying to Samuel Walker's post above:
There is plenty of evidence of ancient lava activity on the moon right in front of your
face (okay, a good lens set helps). THey are called mares, ancient lava flows.
Those huge bloched areas . Can't miss em.
So, ye olde moon had plenty of ancient lava activity.
So, the aliens came in later and made use of these tubes. That much is obvious.
If only Art Bell was still alive and broadcasting. Such a lost opportunity.
"Let's get drunk and make shit up".
Your post is misleading at best if read in context of the article.
A clip from the above link states quite clearly:
Note: Private Browsing prevents information from being recorded on your computer. It does not make you anonymous on the Internet.
Firefox private browsing feature was and is not a means to prevent the sort of 'exploit'
mentioned in the scary article.
What is sad about all this is nobody posting has bothered to note WHY we need
such measures. Take note of the state of humanity that you have people out there
SO FUKIN sick as to mess with a person using a life giving device.
So sick as to get their pathetic jollies off by doing so.
I see lots of silly boy outrage directed at those trying to prevent said abuse but where
is the silly boy outrage directed at the total ass-wipes that DO SUCH ACTS?
Course this begs the question is there a documented case of such happening?
THAT would be interesting.
To all you silly boys, sorry but I find your outrage just a bunch of Nancy activity.
Go fark yourselves.
Yours truly, an enraged Texan.
If you were foolish enough to think this is finally fixed you'd be
stunned to learn otherwise. Stunned if you had just crawled out from
under a rock.
According to Secunia this latest and greatest 'fix' from Adobe clusterf*ck
Systems Inc is just another foil to fool you, dear tool, er user.
Here's a link and everything.
It's not in PDF form so it must be true.
Hey, a lot of you fellow Window's users could avoid a lot of headaches involved when keeping
non core applications up to date if you used this:
Secunia scan works great for me. Been using it for some years now. Browser version works fine but I prefer the full (free as in beer) installed version as it does a better scan.
I don't' farking fuss so much over keeping track of the irresponsible jackwads at Adobe and Apple (quicktime nightmare)
And why does thee register have different logins/paswords for this Channel register than on the register site?
and a host of other packages like I used to do. THis tool just lets me have some resemblance
of peace of mind by reminding me something is 'out of date' security wise.
Is it the answer to safe computing? No, but it sure helps me.
Despite suggestions otherwise, Pinkduck is correct to suspect.
One need not study espionage and signals intelligence operations of nation states for long
to realize such is going on behind your collective backs. It isn't just the USA and NSA by the way.
Plenty of shenanigans to go around. Not to worry.
Nothing to see here , move along now.
Oh, for those interested in reading on this such sort of thing a good place to start, though not end, is Peter Bamford 'The Puzzle Palace' though I do understand later works are about.
Reading up how the Allies won the 2nd World War by using shenanigans and signals intel might lead you to led further down the path of paranoia..
Meanwhile, you could just ignore all that. Just I'd advise not plotting world domination using your PC or networked devices.
Amen to that rant. I agree though I missed the coupons. Not that I need them but who wants
to miss out on freebies, but I applied too late.
That said, it has been far more than a year to prep. I don't know how anyone out there in the
USA here could have missed the fact the digital switchover was going to occur from over 3 years
ago. I made my 'prep' over a year and a half ago by going with a digital tuner display so was ready
well in advance. Been enjoying digital football (with the proper ovoid ball not that silly round Euro ball) ever since.
Delaying the switch over is idiocy.
I'd be happy to see this enacted. Some lives may actually be saved.
While they are at it they should also ban teenagers and then ban idiocy.
Actually, come to think of it, if they would ban the latter first, the former would be covered already.
Not that only teenagers are idiots, but also adults. The banning of idiocy would be all inclusive.
While they are at it:
They should also ban small boats and the motors that propel them.
Ban all mobile phone devices because they can be used by the terrorists to communicate
over vast distances.
Ban backpacks as they can be used to hide weapons that terrorists can use.
Ban tennis shoes as they can make it so terrorists run fast and are extra nimble.
Ban all cameras so that terrorists can not photo document any areas they are thinking of terrorizing.
Ban panty hose so terrorists can't be stealthy as they conduct their terror campaign.
Ban pens , pencils and writing paper.
I'm sure they will get around to some of that.
In case it wasn't stated often enoiugh let me add my voice to the :
"Windows XP SP3 does not bring significant portions of Windows Vista functionality to Windows XP."
PRAISE BE TO ALLAH !
I fully endorse this sentiment even though I'm officially an infidel according to
the 'true believers'.
Vista, you will not be missed. Bon Voyage. May your demise be an early one.
May your mustache rot and fall off.
