Re: Huh, does it log searches?
Even with the best of intentions from the site owners, I always wondered about entering your personal info on a site like this or like this non-sense:

That's bad. The worst I've ever encountered came during a switch replacement project, we were prepping the last few stacks, and were coming up short on our unit count. Report this issue to management, get called into a meeting to discuss the mistake. I produce all my notes, documentation, excel sheets for each stack. Turns out one of the higher ups didn't include the final stack row in the excel auto calculate for the order. The office got very quiet very quickly!
Just a minute there : am I supposed to understand that there are rogue base stations implemented everywhere ? Controlled by who ?
I wouldn't say everywhere, but I wouldn't be surprised if most big cities have some such state monitored\sponsored gear in sensitive areas? Near capitol buildings, important gov't locations. Places that used to have large crowds? Lastly, transportation hubs, airports, train stations...
Just returned from visiting the French half of the family. We went to an out of doors cafe, plenty of space. However, in France, once you queue for the restaurant, you need a mask, until you sit at your table, mask off, until you need to use the toilet, mask on, visit the toilet, return to your table, mask off. As like I've read above, many people had the mask hanging from one ear, or below their nose, or even around their arm. But the funniest thing I saw was an attractive young woman on a date, holding her mask 5cm in front of her face like she was at a masquerade party. She should have mounted it on a stick!
Air travel was already a stomach churning, back breaking, mind bending experience. Add wearing a mask and\or a face shield for 12+ hours, and we have a recipe for mental breakdown. Top it off with buggy software managing a mismatch between airframe and engine size et al? Thanks, I'll pass, to put it politely.
Trump told reporters that he intended to ban the app and prevent its sale to a US company for reasons he did not fully explain.

Just another case of Uncle Donnie getting mad and taking his ball and going home...
With X% of the customers entering a drug store wearing a mask, I wager a guess that facial recog is even less effective. Add a pair of Jackie-O sunglasses, and what is left to recognize? I read somewhere that someone's gait is also easy to identify? What is next, sensors in the floor??
I don't know if the shop was open, but I saw the Cow pattern on the marquee. It's on the Spui if I'm not mistaken, there used to be a KFC across the street? And a Burger King on the same side of the street. It was over 20 years ago, so some details maybe colored by time...
So many half-truths and I don't knows over the years, one stands out. User complained that their Macbook Air was running really slow, type a word and wait 10 seconds for it to appear on screen. I head over the service counter, and have a look. They type and indeed 10 seconds later, the text appears. I have a look at the keyboard, CODE RED! Nurse! Gloves! Stat! Grimiest keyboard I've seen in a long time. And then I get a whiff of coffee. I tell the user to wait as I move the MBA over to the work bench. I whip off the bottom plate, and I see pools of coffee! I told the user what I found, and they replied, I don't drink coffee, so it wasn't me! I said, But this is assigned to you, you are responsible for the upkeep and care of the computer. Priceless dumb looks...
I bet they harvested enough email addys to sell to lots of crooks or marketers or both. I'm worried about any site you "leave" your info just for kicks... Have I been Pwnd even raised questions with me!
Sherlock as there is still NO Tinfoil had icon!! WTF El Reg?? Loose the brainiac and the hockey mask dude, I rarely see them used ;-}
Glad I read the posts until I came across pretty much my thinking. Maybe things have changed, but the transitional individuals I've known of (men only to this point) wouldn't be offended by getting an ad for women's stuff, they would probably want the Plus size ads too. Two of them were taller than my 1.86m.
Now I'm thinking of the Lou Reed song...
Hmm, ever try to do something with a browser and it shits the bed? One of the first things you are asked "Can you empty the browser cache and try again?" That is one of the first questions more than one of our SW vendors asks.
Isn't advising someone to do something illegal, also illegal??
...didn't realize it was so intensive, aren't there google bots to send the annoying message that you have been a good customer, but we want you to be a better paying customer?
Glad my profile is barebones, and in a few years it will be meaningless when I quit twiddling bits for a living.
EPO is a cesspool. The missus got out when after our child was born, and some good friends are still stuck there. They have nothing good to say, especially now that they are all working from home, and miss the best part, the EPO restaurant is really quite nice according to the missus. And I hear the bar was quite nice, and used to be open from lunch on... but that was abused and the hours were limited.
I guess it's all on how you word your response?
Are you serious? Naw, no, we don't share no data, no way, no how.
Months later, Ah, well um, I guess our marketing department promised something, something... shared something, contractually bound... it is all quite legal, we have it on paper!
