Re: Obligatory Covid-19 analogy
@slim. I think you maybe confused. Can you provide a link to research to substantiate?
It’s possible But I don’t believe it’s been proven that it happens at scale for Covid.

Why will it be more complicated? By your own admission there will be less things whizzing around Earth-Moon transfer orbits than LEO.
FWIW said transfer orbit is no more or less complicated than rendevous with a space station, possibly less as the Moon is a bigger target :D. (Probably the same as Lunar Gateway would be the target)
This shouldn't need saying on such a data aware forum as El Reg, but just for Anomentards everywhere (yes the fail is for you AC).
His data (if he genuinely works at a trust) <> centrally collected data.
Hence both, either or neither could be "good enough" for this purpose. As external observers on a public forum we will never know.....
We dont trust them. But in this case they are the lesser of the 2 evils.
Since this is primarily a tech. & user trust problem who has the least likelyhood of screwing this up either deliberately or accidentally - the UK Govt or GooApple?
Google for all its evil user monetisation is a "trusted brand" compared to UK.GOV
That this meant the UK app was going to be blocked as they have made a big deal of doing GPS access as an addon. In reading the details looks like they can still go ahead as long as they dont access the Google or Api contact tracking API in the same app.
I think this then puts a lie to the fact that the Data Guzzlers at NHSX and friends can use the Google/Apple API's.
I do wonder what happens if Scotland say decides to develop a separate app based around DP3T - do either Apple or Google have a separate AppStore for Scotland?
Direct conflation from you here :
"I don't care what colour arm-bands they wear, if they have the power, then they are part of the government."
I'd stop digging. Otherwise all your downvotes will cause a negative reality inversion and before you know it you'll turn into Jake*
*Insert other contentious commentard of your choice.
Are these "point in time" measures as the waves pass us or can we see a longer period than that ie do Gravitational waves travel at different speeds? Presumably these mergers happen over thousands or milllions of years hence why they can see so many, but also presumably they are seeing a tiny snapshot of the process.
To be completely fair to Zoom the standard version of Webex does exactly the same thing. Webex has a dedicated client to client encrypted service with lots of functionality missing - zoom doesnt appear to offer an equivalent.
The rationale is that screen recording and other "in meeting" functions require interception and decryption of the stream.
TL;DR - 99% of use cases will be fine on Zoom - fine being defined as "similar functionality to webex"
So move along nothing to see here other than a convenient headline to bash the victim of today.
Funnily enough there are times when the nerdiest techy solution isn't the best. This is one of them.
PI's only satisfy an edge case in schools.
For most kids all they will need is a Windows PC - harsh but true. Keep a couple of PI's in the corner for the kind of use cases a BBC Model B was used for in our days - Programming and controlling robots etc...
I think you're right. Sounds like the judge had a fair amount of sympathy for her.
Also looks like she might have a claim against the council if they try take things further as she was not trained to handle FOI requests.
Also the foi request was made by a Councilor! This stinks to high heaven.
New product afaik and pretty decent imo. Certainly for those of us who are forced to use the abomination that is Webex Teams, which is some kind of pan-dimensional horror from beyond space time.
(Edit - there is a post below that suggests MS Teams is based on Skype consumer version - no idea if that is correct)
(Icon:Nuke Webex Teams from Orbit - its the only way to be sure)
I did the exact same once or twice myself, fortunately was able to recover also. Also exported a blank cube over a good backup once or twice too. Usually came about when hacking build scripts for other purposes.
Essbase how I loved and hated you.
Although it was far better that the first consolidated version of OBIEE that included it. That had so many poorly documented interdependencies between components that the UAT system accidentally got connected to Prod and wiped during one memorable tenure at a major bank. That was a 4 day outage in financial reporting. My team weren't responsible but as the Ops team we had to fix it. I had to write up the RCA. TL:DR only full network segregation between UAT and Prod would have stopped it, and since it took 6 months to get approved ports open between UAT and Prod networks we never went down that route. The concept that there may have been good reasons (DR and Prod Copies) to pass data and config between networks never seemed to occur to our Info Sec team.
Still I had the pleasure of my resident tech genius giving Oracle product development (we actually got to the product developers!) a good shoeing on the technical ins and outs of their own product.
They are great for music, providing you remember the final twist to fix them in your ears.
Connectivity slighty iffy sometimes but I'm 99% sure thats the iffy Huawei bluetooth stack on my Honor 10 as they are fine on my Ipad.
Nice to hear the Mic quality has improved - the V1's are friggin lousy for this - almost guaranteed to break up at some point during a 1hr Conf call. Although some reviewers claimed the V1's were ok for call too....
Getting more bang for the same buck - as the V1's were the same price - albeit slightly eye watering.
I also have a set of Jabra 65t's that I use for calls which are amazing, but absolutely lousy for music - sound like the bottom of the well.
I like the butterfly keyboard on my late 2018 MBP.
I prefer the typing experience to any of my other laptop keyboards and its also more satisfactory than the Apple wireless keyboard which I believe it scissor. I certainly dont have a problem with the travel.
Plus I quite like the clatter unless one of my colleagues is taking notes on a call....
I agree. Or as I would put it - essentially optimising against the prima-donna effect. We've all met that guy - and its usually a guy - who thinks the most obscure code with a fractional performance advantage is the dogs nuts.
See also optimising for the future engineer who doesn't have the N weeks/months of sprint/planning context needed to support/extend the current solution.
Did they actually brick anything? Or did they just give their customers the choice to do so?
My understanding is that they borked the integration of older kit with the rest of the network but that it could still be used seperately AND that this is seperate from the recycle mode.
Just because you have a gun doesnt mean you have to pull the trigger AKA mustnt press the big red button marked "Do Not Press"
