Is it necessary to remind you and other Cummings socks that he and his wife, also took and collected his child from the local hospital while both of them were suffering from the virus. Apparently neither of them told the hospital they were ill.
Due to privacy constraints, the hospital has not been allowed to give details about the incident. We will never know if Cummings spread the virus during his trip to a cottage that apparently doesn't officially exist.
I heard about this years ago and assumed it was made up.
There was once a single tree in the middle of the Sahara Desert, some 250 miles away from any others. It had survived for 300 years, until a drunk driver happened along.
Not so long ago No Script stopped working without warning, when Firefox was 'upgraded'. From next month Mozilla have decided to block more addons at short notice. I've lost count of the number of addons that have been blocked overnight, the majority of which have never been replaced. Practically every upgrade has cost usability, and list of bugs that have never been fixed gets longer and longer.
Mozilla boasts about the addons available, the way things are going, there won't be any, which will solve the problem of finding any that work on their site.
Anyone going to the Daily Mail website will automatically run a Facebook script, even if they are not a Facebook user. What is that script doing, has anyone checked.
The Daily Heil isn't the only website that runs a Facebook script. I believe Facebook are slurping up data from all over the place, whether they have permission is another matter.
As a user of No Script, I'm aware that huge numbers of websites want users to allow Facebook scripting. I'm no programmer, but if I've got that crap running in the background all the time, Facebook must be collecting usage data from me, despite me not being on Facebook.
Perhaps it's time these sites, who are mostly belong to media companies were told to stop this practice.
Professional drone operations must also have public liability insurance. If they make a claim and don't have the necessary CAA licence, the insurance company will not pay out. How long will it be before some clown falls into this self inflicted pit?
Get over it, licences along with insurance are a legitimate expense, which can be offset against tax, along with all the makey uppey costs the self employed use to cut their tax bills.
This build in bug has been known about for some time, plenty long enough for every state security agency in the world to have found ways to make use of it. Even it Intel provide a method of disabling the Management Engine, who's to say it can't be reversed or will just continue to work ignoring whatever updates provided by Intel?
"...Important Notice – Firefox customers
Watching Sky Go is no longer supported on the latest version of Firefox. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to enjoy Sky Go using an alternative browser like Internet Explorer.
We are aware of the problem and are working hard to get this fixed as soon as we possibly can.."
Will Firefox keep on fiddling until they've no users left ?
They were sinking that ship in a specific spot to create a reef and playground for divers. They removed all the equipment to prevent polution. Do I need to point out that those considerations take a backseat in wartime? Many US carriers were taken out by a single bomb, because they were built with wooden deck, unlike British carriers which had armoured decking.
Frigates and destroyers have been a platform for torpedoes for many years, it's pretty obvious their pop guns are not going have any affect on a battleship, but they are not facing battleships are they.
The Royal Navy have a piss poor reputation for their gunnery skills. They fired and missed thousands of times attempting to sink the Bismark, despite it running round in circles at walking pace. They were even worse in WW1 at Jutland. In both cases, the German Navy were far more accurate and effective with their shooting.
Without missiles they've hopeless as they've no chance of hitting a barn door at 10 feet with their 4.5 inch popguns. The RN must have been quaking when the Russian Armada sailed down the Channel and couple of weeks ago.
WTF is going on with this website? Every time I read an article like this, it makes it less likely I'll bother returning.
Does the Reg realise that London isn't the centre of the universe?
Does the Reg realise that the Daily Heil turns out self-centred crap like this every day and makes a better job of it?
Which is desperate for readers, they advertise 24/7 for their 'Jargon Buster' freebee. So, every few months they drag this crap out to remind us they exist.
As they say on QI - "Nobody Knows". It's all but impossible to know the connection speed for any house in the UK, until it has been installed. If you live a couple of miles from the exchange, your speed will be rubbish, if you live next door it should be good. If you need a good connection and you've not got one - call Pickfords.
It's time The Reg put a stop to repeating these complaints, they only give dicks the opportunity to whine.
