Shoot. If the Limeys want to share data, just store it "in the cloud". Everyone and his sister will have access within a day or two.

In the Navy, we want to share data with some ease. In the Navy, can someone help us with this please?
Microsoft wasn't joking about the Dev Channel not enforcing hardware checks: Windows 11 pops up on Pi, mobile phone
Win 11 is better than Win 7? I think not, Roscoe. The user interface stinks, It has more bloat and garbage than any OS before it. The only reason it's taken off is microsoft bribed, cajoled and otherwise threatened all the software and hardware companies to install it or else. I only "upgraded" because so many softwares I had would no long run on win 7. I NEVER had any problems with Win7, not functional, not viruses, not malware. But then I always used common sense and didn't click on every url link that came my way and ALWAYS had Norton or the like running.
USA's efforts to stop relying on Russian-built rocket engines derailed by issues with Blue Origin's BE-4
So, quit putting all you secret, proprietary, confidential, operational data out on the bunch of holes held together with string. Either that or require, mandate and otherwise at-the-point-a-gun demand that all data has 512 bit or higher security with air breaks. The world did well using dedicate lines for decades.
Talk about putting lipstick on a pig. And the start up sound? I turn OFF all system sounds as they're royal pain in arse and add nothing. Looks like microsoft is just trying to keep its coders busy and trying to hit three double blue-ray discs of gar-baj for installation. Oh, to be able to get rid of all the bloat and crap after install, let alone during install.
Price-capped broadband on hold for New York State after judge rules telcos would 'suffer unrecoverable losses'
"suffer unrecoverable losses increasing with time" and that the "bulk of these losses will stem from lost income." BOVINE EXCREMENT! The internet is the closest thing to a perpetual motion machine in existence. Most of those supposed "losses" would be in the form of fictitious book entries and not real cash gone. Once a line is laid, it doesn't cost any more in cash or manpower to squirt a signal down the pipe. Slow internet speed are less the result of equipment limitation than they are of the ISPs purposely throttling the speeds. And since most of the signals sent and received are still over copper that can't be used as an excuse.
Dave Yost started out as the county prosecutor and then count auditor of Delaware County. The latter is the premier consumer protection agency in counties through its Weights & Measures division. Mr Yost has his moments where politics come to the fore but overall he is a consumer advocate first.
Fastly 'fesses up to breaking the internet with an 'an undiscovered software bug' triggered by a customer
The study apparently ignored a couple other reasons. The "electronic" generation doesn't want to have anything to do with anything they can't get on their cellphones. They claim to be "too busy" to sit back and actually read something on paper. And frankly, I think they're too damned lazy and cheap to buy a paper or magazine.
It has been litigated innumerable times. A business is under NO obligation to allow everyone into its premises, except when such refusal amounts to to any discriminatory act prohibited by federal law. Which means a bigoted baker can deny a gay person but the jerk cannot deny a black, hispanic, asian etc.
Lessons have not been learned: Microsoft's Modern Comments leave users reaching for the rollback button
As another vendor promises 3 years of Android updates, we ask: How long should mobile devices receive support?
Let's see. My neighbor has a 1962 Corvette and it's still supported. He also has 1965 Bronco and it's still supported. I have a 2008 Sky and it's still supported. 90% of the updates have little to nothing to do with functionality. They're created because new department head likes gee-gaws better the frim-fram or to fix crappy coding that should have been caught before it went out the door. You know, like mircorosft products.
What's this about a muon experiment potentially upending Standard Model of physics? We speak to one of the scientists involved
One question I've had since I got my Life Science Library book "Matter". It included pictures of the tracks made by particles in a particle accelerator. To me, most of the tracks looked identical even though the editors said they represented newly discovered elements or elements with fractional half-lifes. So my question is, "Are they really finding new particles or are they just making chips off the old block? Chips lick you'd get from crushing an ice cube or rock. Funny thing, I've posed this question to MIT, Stanford, Science magazine, Scientific American, and who knows how many other publications. I even queried Dr. Hawkins and he was the only one who even acknowledged my query, let alone answer. And his answer was the experiments indicated the existence of new particles. Not that new particles were being created or discovered. Just indicated. Hmmm...Makes one wonder.
Sitting idle while global chips fry: US car industry asks Biden to earmark cash for automotive semiconductors
Once more, everyone.
A cloud is just a bunch of holes held together with vapor.
A net is just a bunch of holes held together with string.
Anyone who is stupid enough t5o store anything more valuable than the recipe for peanut and butter sandwich deserves the pain caused by the failure or theft of a cloud or net.
When I a job in 1990 with a certain county that was just moving off green terminals to desktop pcs, I was the only person in the office who had any experience with pcs. I began with an Amstrad 8086 in 1984 and the moved up to a 80286 box in 1986. My Amstrad had more RAM and storage than the file cabinet sized Burroughs mini. Most of the IT staff refused to believe what I already knew including Novell, Quattro Pro, pfs:Professional Write, Ask Sam, Paradox, etc. The also didn't like it when I solved pc problems for others in the office instead their going through our tiny IT department (4 people serving 150 people from pcs to minis).I even got dressed down once for helping from my immediate boss who was barely able to turn his pc on. At each succeeding job, I've been in the same boat. I actually got perverse please out of proving the IT head of a state agency was wrong on several occasions. Ah, the thrill of actually knowing shit about what you're doing.
The wastepaper basket is on the other side of the office – that must be why they put all these slots in the computer
Someone tried to poison a Florida city by hijacking its water treatment plant via TeamViewer, says sheriff
Idiots! When will entities with critical, do-or-die data or equipment realise that the internet is NOT safe. If they need remote access they should spring the dime and set up dedicated lines. You know. Those things that ran the whole country for decades before DARPANet was realsed into the wild. At least until they either incorporate at least 1024 bit security or completely remove the biggest threat to their computers - humans.
NASA offers foodies, boffins $500,000 to find ways for astronauts to make their own dinners on the Moon, Mars
What happens when the internet realizes the stock market is basically a casino? They go shopping at the Mall
Another business that would rather save a few quid by publishing its proprietary, confidential, and personal data on the internet. And anyone with an ounce of brains knows a net is just a bunch of holes held together with string. The net won't even become remotely secure until two things are done. Minimum encryption goes to 513 bit and human are prohibited from using it.
Atlantic City auctions off chance to hit Big Red Button and make grotesque Trump Plaza casino go boom
Yup. Let's put all of our proprietary, confidential, essential, and otherwise can't exists without information out on the internet. Everyone know how safe and secure a bunch of holes being held together with bits of string is. The government and industry survived for decades using dedicated lines. Blithering idiots.
Patch Tuesday brings bug fixes for OpenSSL, IBM, SAP, Kubernetes, Adobe, and Red Hat. And Microsoft, of course
Let's check in now with the new California monolith... And it's gone, torn down by a bunch of MAGA muppets
75% of databases to be cloud-hosted by 2022, says Gartner while dishing on the weak points of each provider
Never underestimate the stupidity of the human animal, especially where technology is concerned. We had a lady who was in charge of running the backups for her office. She dutifully put the tape cartridge into our MicroVAX 3600 and start the backup. She'd then sit around waiting for the backup to finish. Unfortunately, to her the backup was done when she no long heard the tape drive. With no noise she pushed the eject button and out would pop one ruined backup. Our operators got to the point they'd distract her or even sit directly in front of the drive to keep her from destroying the cartridge and MicroVAX.
