'Nobody's got to use the internet,' argues idiot congressman in row over ISP privacy rules


Should change his name

to Non-Sensenbrenner.

I doubt that one can get about, anywhere in the developed world today, without the Internet .

Dieting cannibals: At last, a scientist has calculated calories for human body parts


Cannibalism in 1930's Ukraine

Stalin's man-made famine, known as the Holodomor, killed about 7 million people, and it is known that some adults killed and consumed their children.

Not a nice thought to start guessing what they started on for the first course.

Re: Chump change

The drug running gangs are already offing people in the favelas who don't comply with their rules. They are also articulating the violence in the streets with local residents in fear of being murdered on a daily basis.

Also something you may be unaware of is that in the South of Brazil, known as the tri-border area (Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay) groups such as Hezbollah are ensconced carrying out their drug running, money laundering and trading in arms.

It's amazing how people screaming about human rights don't give a damn about the innocents slaughtered by the drug cartels and terrorist groups, as long as the law cannot see what nonsense they're putting out on the web.

FBI won't jail future US president over private email server


With so many lies from Clinton and the Administration, and Bill Clinton's "off-chance" meeting with AG Lynch on an airport tarmac a week ago or so, to supposedly discuss his grandchildren, who is going to believe the FBI?

State Department finds 22 classified emails in Hillary’s server, denies wrongdoing


What about Carter?

Did you see what Admiral Lyons had to say?



Re: Translation lost across the pond

Those emails may not have any top secret intel of national security, but just highly inflammable intel on the mess Hillary and the State dept., made of the Arab Spring and Benghazi.

They have to cover their backsides for her to become another lying president.

Pentagon email hacked, Russia already blamed


Re: From COCOM dom to collar-wearing sub

As we've seen, the US today is more into gender equality than technology, so it's to be expected.

Out of respect for their thinking we should stop maligning the bull's excrement by comparing it to US IT and give the other gender an opportunity and call it cowshit.

Elon Musk unveils Hyperloop – the subsonic tube of tomorrow


20 Year bonds look highly risky

Bill Gates's barbed comments pop Google's broadband balloons


Seems that Gates forgot something

most important in the fight against malaria.

Thanks to Rachel Carson's pseudo scientific "Silent Spring" DDT was banned from the fight against the mosquito.

Millions have died, and what people don't realise is the suffering that tormented those souls during their battle to live.

Seems that DDT is not as bad as was made out.

The mosquito has to be battled because it doesn't just bite a sleeping person.

Seems for those Africans to avail themselves of Billy goat Gates' nets they would have to go around their chores, especially at night, draped in them.

The mosquitoes are not programmed to specific hours but maybe they are less attracted to designer BSD nets?

Re: I would love to join the conversation

If you're the Larry Constantine who along with Tom DeMarco and Ed Yourdon set us off on structured analysis then I'd love to read what you have to say.


Re: Is this report an accurate representation of what Constantine said?

but don't forget that the story started with the NYT, and you expect there to be logic and rational thinking?


Citing the New York Times

for a factual report only displays how hard up the Reg is.

Good grief who would expect anything other than disinformation from the NYT nowadays?

'Ex climate sceptic' Muller's latest BEST stuff is the worst so far


Another thing about those energy saving light bulbs

There is now a complaint about the UV radiation from the CFLs and the damage they can cause to the skin.

No provision made for getting rid of the mecury when they fail nor adequate precautions provided when the break in a home or workplace.

Chrome passes Firefox in global browser share


but in the US both Google and Mozilla’s browser

have seen their market share slip in the face of a move to IE,

Is that because as the person commenting in a Czech newspaper earlier this year considers the American voters as a confederacy of fools who voted for Obama, the prince of the fools?

Err... You don't actually have a right

Mars trips could blind astronauts


long amounts of time spent in space damages astronauts' eyes

Reduced gravity has cited as the most likely cause - known as Space Adaptation Syndrome – includes spatial disorientation, nausea and vomiting.

So does a large amount of time spent on a bar crawl.

How bin Laden thwarted US electronic surveillance


Not only GLBT

but Arabic speaking Jews as well.

After 9/11 they refused the services of those Jews, originally from Arab count0ries, so as not to offend the Muslims working with the FBI; but some of those Muslims objected, anyway, to interrogating other Muslims and refused to record the "interviews".

Apple sued over iPhone location tracking

Paris Hilton

No - they don't track people

They just make sure that others can get at the info and "track" people.

Why Paris cause one cannot deny that she was "in the vicinity" at the same time.

CelleBrite UFED used by Michigan police

tested by the US Department of Justice found that "the device could grab all of the photos and video off of an iPhone within one-and-a-half minutes. The device works with 3000 different phone models and can even defeat password protections."


and according to the writer, one doesn't have to be arrested, or even suspected of a crime. During a routine traffic stop, in evident violation of Fourth Amendment protections the police can "glean" a lot from an iPhone.

That's got Americans worried cause we know what the police can get up to there.

And in dear old Blighty, one's camera/iPhone can even get damaged if one takes pictures of Mr Plod parked illegally. (El Reg had some of this really democratic behaviour noted some time back).

HP price tag could nix Marrickville council's 'Israel boycott'


The Western Media would no doubt be the BBC, al Grauniad,

NYT, and uncle tom cobly.

The shooting up of an Israeli school bus with a Kornet anti-tank rocket and and subsequent rain of some 50 rockets and mortars on Southern Israel was practically not mentioned in the media condemnation of Israel's counter attack.

Read Melanie Phillips, CiFWatch and others for a concise appraisal of media's biased reporting on the conflict.

As for the illegality of the "occupation" it would be interesting to know if the international agreements from the League of Nations, San Remo Conference, the Sevres commision, even UNSC Resolution 242 have been revoked.

If not, then under what clauses has Israel's presence been deemed to be illegal?

Because ignorance of the terms of official international agreements, by Obama and Ban Ki-moon permit one to renege on them?

"not the person who decided

So one doesn't buy an expensive safe for one's valuables cause the crime is the burglar's fault?

Why is protecting oneself against loss not an ethical demand?

It's about time that many sites did something about their security if they want to continue enticing the innocent third parties to party!

Why Paris, cos she knows what's safe!

Well maybe Rudd has gone hard to port and is following Olibama's lead about needing gubmint control of the internet (cause all that information from iPhones and iPods is confusing the erectorate).
