One man's mistake, missing backups and complete reboot: The tale of Europe's Galileo satellites going dark

Europe's digital identity system needs patching after can_we_trust_this function call ignored


No, no, no.

The flaw is far more fundamental than that. It is the EU project in it's entirety that is broken.

Remember the big IBM 360 mainframe rescue job? For now, Brexit has ballsed it up – big iron restorers


Correction: The EU ballsed it up.

Junior minister says gov.UK considering facial recognition to verify age of p0rn-watchers


Re: Umm - yet another poorly thought out idea

UK ISPs must block access to Nintendo Switch piracy sites, High Court rules


Re: Aren't UK laws optional these days ?

EU law is supreme over UK law. Funnily enough, that's how we're going to get WTO-deal UK Independence on the 31st Oct.

I know what would make a good Christmas present now.

Lukewarm water.

Q. If machine learning is so smart, how come AI models are such racist, sexist homophobes? A. Humans really suck

Scenic vandalism

Globalists have a penchant for violating anything beautiful.

No Widevine DRM for you! Developer left with two years of work stymied by Google snub


Re: DRM and excessive copyright strike again!

Googlers, eggheads urge web giant's bosses to kick top conservative off its AI ethics council


Re: Proving the well known Google Bias once again

What would you know about science?

You are probably of the view that gender, and the corresponding differences we see between men and women, are socially constructed.

You would be quite wrong.

UK networks have 'no plans' to bring roaming fees back after Brexit


Re: I'm not British

I live in Scotland.

You don't get it at all.

The UK, especially Scotland will thrive and prosper under the Union flag rather than having our identity crushed under the EU globalist jackboot.

People here want to leave under the WTO deal and who can blame them? The EU is holed below the waterline and she's going down fast.


We should not be relying on the EU at all.

The best possible option for the UK is to leave under the WTO deal.

No 'No Deal' or 'Hard Brexit' just Brexit.
