American ones I expect.

As a right-pondian I worry about the US-ification of almost everything. Having been a regular visitor to ElReg since 199x, I am disappointed. My tutting shall become slightly louder, lest I disturb anyone from their Times crossword...
'I realised that this also means El Reg is now likely to visit the horrors of "thru" and "pants" on me, and even worse - may well start using Americanisms that are either unknown to me, or which have referents unknown to me, or which have the opposite meaning to that which I'd expect.'
I expect there are some who could care less...
The one with the Kentish hops, please -->
There has to be a trade off between ease of use, convenience and security.
Air-gapped data is secure, but convenient? No.
Time-based 2FA (e.g. Google Authenticator) is probably one of the best compromises, but can be MITM-ed.
SMS-based 2FA can also be MITM-ed.
A hardware (U2F/FIDO) key is probably the most secure, but less convenient to use. And it can be lost...
I think the best option is continuously educating the user, but that is often seen more as a cost than a benefit to the company.
You, sir, are a genius!
That will use up all those pesky carbon atoms so they don't combine with two (or occasionally just one) oxygen atoms and venting into the atmosphere.
Just one teeny tiny problem. What do we then do with this CH4 to release the stored energy?
(spoilt for choice on the icon with this one -->)
I'm not sure a Google Authenticator style 2FA would have stopped them. According to the article the login credentials are sent instantly from the fake login page via Telegram. Assuming the fake login page also then asks for the 2FA code, the man in the middle has a (max 30 second) window of opportunity to capture and use that 2FA code to login.
I've noticed they are very fussy with SPF records. I've had various issued, including someone complain that I don't reply to their emails (because their SPF record is slightly wrong). I never even get the emails (not even in the Spam folder). They (and I) use Google Workspace...
I loved the file save method in RISC OS - you just dragged the save file icon to the folder (directory) you wanted it in. Even now, there are many Windows apps where the file save dialog doesn't seem to remember what folder you were using last, and you have to click through multiple levels to get to the folder you want.
Reminds me of a friend's story:
A colleague of his had just taken delivery of a new digital camera and 'photo' inkjet printer in the early days of said technology. This colleague was showing off the photos he had printed, several of which featured his not unattractive 18 year old daughter's birthday party. One colleague ignores the content of the pics and pipes up 'What photo paper did you use?' Cue much mirth and merriment...
Demon were my first ISP back in 94/95 (memory is now hazy), and I stayed with them pretty much until ADSL and ntl: came along.
I had a 19200 baud modem as that was the fastest the serial port on my Archimedes would run! Then moved to a PC with Trumpet Winsock and a 33k modem, which I eventually upgraded to a 56k that would reliably connect at about 43k. Those were the days!
I don't miss the phone bills though!
There's been a London region since 2016:
Unless your house is extremely well insulated, surely you're wasting energy by maintaining a room at a comfortable temperature when it's unoccupied?
As an example, we have a Loxone system controlling the lighting and zoned heating, and the spare bedroom is normally effectively unheated. A long press on the light switch turns the radiator on for 30 minutes. I fail to see how maintaining that room at 18C is more efficient.
As an occasional sailor with a Day Skipper qualification, I get how the cocked hat reckoning etc works. Other reasons for errors can include not correcting for True/Magnetic North, inaccuracies in the compass itself (fixed onboard compasses should be recalibrated occasionally), and large ferrous bodies (oo-er) interfering with the compass.
Loving the series, more please!
If you watch the animated code entry 'film' on Sotheby's, it's been HTML-ified, all of the > characters have been replaced with >
There are others in there as well.
I'm not sure it would compile very well like that...
Does the NFT contain that code or has someone cocked up?
What's going to happen to all those motherboards that self builders and small shops use? There's going to be one almighty stampede for TPM2 modules.
Dell have got a 'sale' on at the moment and I can't find much mention of Win11 or TPM. Some people are going to be upset in 6 months time when they can't upgrade their 'new' computer...
Also, will we be able to run it in a VM? I'm sure some people would like to run various setups in VMs for testing etc...
