Irate sysadmin locks San Francisco officials out of network

Paris Hilton

What they said v What they meant

What they said: "city officials said they were making progress in regaining control of the system, which is up and running but inaccessible."

What they meant: "the guy didn't SuperGlue the power buttons, which we've now located and we can power the servers up and down at will. Still can't get in but they go on and off nicely".

What they said: 'Mayor Gavin Newsom, said he was "confident that [the Department of Technology] is doing everything necessary to maintain the integrity of the city's computer networks"

What they meant: "Hey, if we can't get in then probably no other bugger can. That means our systems are "integrous", right ?"

What they're going to say: "Welcome to Information Retrieval".

What they're going to mean: "Welcome to Guantanimo. One orange jump-suit each. Line on the left".

Paris, 'cause one of those suits must look good on someone, surely !?

UK and US agree biometric heavily vetted trusted traveller deal

Welcome, Trusted Traveller

So, the terrorists bide their time until they become classified as frequent and trusted travellers. Then they bomb the place to buggery and we're back to square one.

These "initiatives" will cost all of us a lot of money and inconvenience and will do next to nothing to combat terrorism.

Paris, because even she can see further than the end of her nose, sometimes.

AVG disguises fake traffic as IE6

Good Evening Officer

So, let me see if I've got this right...

Every dodgy website that LinkScanner visits will have your IP address in their usage logs. You will be identified as a legitimate visitor. Traffic from that site to your PC will be traceable via your ISP. If that site is currently under police investigation you can, potentially, expect a knock at your door any time soon.

Your defence that it was LinkScanner that visited the site and not you is indefensible in court as LinkScanner traffic is deliberately indistinguishable from a human visitor.

Now how comfortable do AVG customers feel having this software installed ?

Paris, coz even she wouldn't shoot herself in the foot and think it was for her own good.

Pirate Bay bitchslaps Swedish law with SSL



Copyright Acts have been introduced worldwide because the powers that be recognise that a breach of these acts is indeed a form of theft.

So the comparison with burglary may not have been the best choice of analogy but it certainly isn't ridiculous as some of you have suggested.

Ohio table-shag man gets six months

Innocent furniture !?

In my experience there's no such thing.

There's always whole clusters of nested tables hanging around our local neighbourhood, showing off their legs and tops with hardly a stitch of cloth between them. Tho they do look cute with those little lace doilies.

I reckon the guy's table lead him up the garden path. It's difficult to be completely impervious when they flaunt it like they do. Having said that, the table probably wasn't that old - it's height alone should have been a bit of a warning.

Paris, because well, duh, I've seen the video. That dressing table in the background is HOT !
