Just check at lost and found, British Rail Waterloo or Paddington
They'll be a laptop in there with it on!

I was going to post about DFS
I'm 53 this year, and I can't remember a single advertisement that isn't/wasn't for a sale ending soon.
I do however know that they are, located between Darley Dale & Matlock (Why do I know this?)
I'm guessing if I ever need to go to Derbyshire, there will be a massive manufacturing plant with hundreds, if not thousands of employees, an office block the size of the shard and a car park for millions.
They must be one of the biggest manufacturers in the world (cut price sale items)
This kit isn't using FM/AM/VHF for it's flight modes ….. is it?
I know these things use a kind of modified proprietary protocol while in use
Don't the manufacturers have to provide specific details on how to track them?
I'm into model boats, and have one fitted with a telemetry system that reports back to a computer/phone/website which ever I want
I've sniffed the packets from it and the data contains the serial no, last 2000 location points and obviously telemetry data (speed/heading/duration)
OK, so all of that can be spoofed, but the original data is hard coded into my device, even if I make s/w changes to it
Therefore it sends the real & fake info (which I thought drones did as well)
I'm guessing the suspects aren't creating their own network covering the entire airside operation
(or are they)?
Well they must be pretty clever and quite numerous people needed and tonnes of kit
Is it a DJI or better make if there is one (Don't DJI have a real time method of monitoring ALL their products)
I'll bet that they do, so why arn't the manufacturers assisting with the loction tracking data
There must be an easier answer than closing thee airport
Put me in charge of protecting our airports and you'll never see another drone within 5 miles of the perimeter fence
Or did I get this totally wrong and it is actually cheaper to send in a couple of thousand coppers in the dark. haha
If he's just gone missing, I wouldn't hold my breath. They could say he was abducted by aliens and no one would be any wiser (Maybe Gary McKinnon). I really hope our powers that be can intervene and get him the hell out of there. After he's been released and returned to the UK, then I suggest we take off and Nuke the site from orbit! It's the only way to be sure!
Have they tried an Ostrich
I'm sure I saw one of the buggers learning to fly on TV the other night
I had to blindfold my pet Emu to stop it getting such stupid ideas!
That said, my pet Rhea does run around flapping it's wings a lot, but we get lovely omelettes
My DJI has decided it doesn't like flying anymore, and refuses to connect to anything!
Why should being in South Africa protect you?
I'll be in Joburg On Fri with a memory stick or 5 and my laptop
Then next week, Pretoria & Cape town
Where exactly would you like me to plug it in?
All the sites I visit will be government so might just try Joburg and watch the spread!
The funny thing is, my laptop was infected from a firewalled wireless network that visitors access
I'd hate to imagine how many people got caught out
I used to have Sky but ditched it when the adverts & cost became ridicules
Our only option at the time was Free Sat and Free View
Then Offcom started allowing more adverts per hour than the old 4 x 3min breaks max
On Free *** the program starts and then after 4 minutes there is an ad break for 2-3 mins then more every 10 mins.
OK so they are free, but I really don't need a HSL Chair, perfume, coffee, DIY or constant adverts for Sky One!
We subscribed to Now TV (Yes I know it's Sky) but with 80mb download speeds here, we are good to go with 4 boxes.
ok so it's £19.98 a month, but I reckon it's a better deal
Why are they still building new models, when eventually no-one will be allowed to fly on them?
I mean, they are banning laptops/tablets/cameras/liquids so soon they'll ban scientific equipment & phones.
There are now 'no fly' lists with loads of people affected, religion is partly banned as well
If I were a god fearing, C of E or Catholic or any other religion for that matter, am I gonna get black listed, as a radical something or other?
Flame, for the hell of it!
Most of them are on TalkNotTalk so I guess fixing their problems remotely is no longer an option.
Hurray for me, no more out of hours calls from my family
BooHoo for me, as most of my real customers use Team Viewer to allow me access
Can I claim from TalkNotTalk for all the Team Viewer installations that they have now blocked?
There might be a silver lining to this cloud after all
Bear Grylls - Celebrity Survival Special - The Mars Adventure
We could start with.....
<1> Paris Hilton
Because she likes flying a lot!
I Patient this idea in the name of The Register for a nominal 40% of the royalties!

and please make sure the smug git is also sent there!
I contract to numerous companies, and NONE of them offer overtime or TOIL for support out of hours.
I recently learned that their hours had changed, now 9-5 support only, Used to be 8-6 Support. nobody informed me and I'd happily been supporting customers 'Out of Hours' as I work in a remote location.
I've had 3 support calls today, and decided to assist, not because I have to, but because I value their trust and I know I can solve the issue quickly. In the last 12 months I've been told not to do support out of hours, but when a major client calls, I can't say get lost, it's the weekend.
Anyway, I know I am doing the support for free, but who cares except my wife & kids!
I agree, mostly all you need is an email address to access the network
Poor old bill.gates.at.microsoft.com, must get a lot of junk email!! ;)
I found out by accident years ago that you don't need to verify the email address
Now I just tell everyone to use the above, when in hotels etc etc
Because you can't work the whole bank holiday without a Beer or Two
Fix attempted, but I have had a couple while working at a Solar Farm today
I'm on call for 72 hours and my wife is my driver!
I have no intention of driving and the aircon has failed, so I took some fans and a pack of lager
Lager sitting in cool box currently at -1c
Awaiting arrival of Aircon engineer at 7pm (only an hour to go)
Everything is currently working, even if a little hot!
From what I've seen, the new PC roll out is Windows 7 Pro, with a very restricted GP involved
No-one can add or remove any software or even plug in a new mouse without IT involvement
Local Admin doesn't even exist as far as I've seen
£500 Million, would buy quite a lot of boxes, laptops & tablets
So who's bidding?
Why have there been 'NO' actual incidents of drones hitting a plane.... as far as I know. I fly my drone in the Cornish countryside, close to St Mawgan & RNAS Culdrose, I haven't been out this week, so it wasn't me!
I always keep outside the perimeter fences and keep a close eye for any ground movements (take offs etc). I also keep an eye on flight radar on my laptop for incoming flight traffic. RNAS Culdrose is in such a flat area that you can see anything incoming for miles. Flight Radar doesn't cover much military air traffic.
I've even been asked to film parts of St Mawgan by their security personnel, to check outlying buildings. when there is not much happening, and they are happy to receive the video footage on email.
Drone-ish icon as I can't fly helicopters, I just lose them!
I live 400 Meters from a public road and our house is made mostly of granite
Are these van allowed to trespass down our private lane and sniff the 5 WiFi networks here?
Our networks are fully encrypted and the kids use NOW TV boxes to watch stuff
The main equipment is directly wired to a switch, apart from phones and laptops
We have a TV Licence, so this isn't really an issue unless I chop the aerial off the roof
95% of the TV we watch is not directly a Freeview / Freesat or BBC related channel
(I know some freeview channels transmit bbc programs) i.e Dave
So should I just let rip with the shotgun when a van drives up here?
Typing this comment on one now
I was given one by my wife for Christmas, my only glitch was yesterday, when it decided my WiFi didn't exist. everything else could connect - except my surface.
I turned it off and back on, still nothing, went out to the kitchen to get a beer and when I returned all was well again. no explanation, no windows dialog, nothing. It just started working again
The thing is I actually use it more now, when I'm at home than my laptop.
They are expensive, but everyone I've shown it to fancies getting one, but the expense is restrictive
If you fancy doing networking job there, there are serious restrictions...... If you tell anyone
I went out with a friend on 'Holiday' to fix a network issue on a mountain (Southern Sri Lanka)
My luggage consisted of a few pairs of Shorts, Tee-shirts, Trainers & toiletries
But also contained 2 x Boxes of CAT5 cable, Switches & sockets. all of which cost a bloody fortune out there.
Import tax is 100% of the value, if they pick up on it and I had about £2k of equipment in my suitcase
Arrived and just strolled through 'nothing to declare' never saw a single official, picked up outside by limo & driven directly to a hotel for dinner, then onwards to said mountain!
4 Hours later, sitting by pool swigging a beer, awaiting local 'labour' to come and run the cables via the coconut trees.
Cabling took 3 days, terminating took 30 mins, connecting & configuring 2 hours, and there were great pool parties every night I had my own villa with servants, 24 hour driver as required and access to the casino next door with spending money. All in all I think it was a good relaxing holiday.
In the final paragraph of the article, TalkTalk state that team viewer is installed on its customers PCs
" the spokesperson said, adding the firm is aware that TeamViewer is installed on the PCs of its customers."
Is the TV Database stored on a central server at TalkTalk and that equipment has been compromised?
I don't use this feature, but it would be useful if I needed unattended access, I suppose
Maybe that's the way it's been done!
I've read the reports on Teamviewer being hacked and then this today about TalkTalk
I reckon it's coincidense, the phone scammers always try and use TV in my experiance
It has to be related to a phone scam, in some way or how are the 'hackers' getting IDs & PWs?
I use TV in relation to work and have over 400 customers, none have reported anything odd
Sounds more like TalkTalk customers are recieving phone calls from scammers and with a bit of luck already have TV installed.
