Although most of this you already know, much of it was new for me especially the early history

Let's not miss this important point here..
Those two weather stations are located in Kent Town and Adelaide Airport.. These 2 stations are less than 10 kilometers apart.. and Kent Town is only 46m above Adelaide Airport
I made the mistake of adding an August Home Smart Lock to my front door. It's an Apple HomeKit device so it requires a hub for Siri; either an AppleTV or iPad. I use an iPad Pro in the living room for this purpose. I was showing off my home automation setup to a neighbor a few days ago, he's cool techy guy like myself. Fast forward to this morning, I'm pulling out of my driveway and he runs up and asks to borrow some flour to fry wings for an office wing party/contest; dope. So I put the car in park and to go back inside and he's like "I'll let myself in." I'm stunned, like what the f*ck. Dude walks up to my front door and shouts, "HEY SIRI, UNLOCK THE FRONT DOOR." She unlocked the front door.
Seems interesting to me that the site is still refusing participant access.
You would have thought that at the end of the day after the site was shut down it would be back working in a somewhat limited fashion.
There was reports that they pulled the plug at about 1930AEST Tuesday which should have given them a chance to let the "DDOS" (inverted commas deliberate because quotation fingers don't work online) subside but the continued downtime likely means that something is royally f**ked there!
if recent history is anything to go by, the upgraded access technology will be a long, drawn out tender process with the winning bidder deciding to create their own solution even though there was multiple, proven solutions already available. It will also be delayed about 6 years with a budget overrun of over 100 million dollars.
no, it was on element14 so that explains the higher than expected price.
Take a look at other lines on that site, they are 20% - 50% higher than other sites - even bricks and mortar locations in Aus that already include the antipodean tax.
I use them for emergency purchases my normal suppliers cannot meet quick enough and accept the hit in the budget!
I'm too busy working in my shed to spend time watching the TV...
Much prefer my AM radio blasting away
@Duncan Macdonald: The DVD is just the car radio deck with a composite output feeding the TV, so I doubt that there is even a HDMI input on the sub-$200 display supplied.
.... And I've seen one of these in the Big Green* hardware stores discounted to $2500, there was another model from the same manufacturer with just a cd/tape deck and speakers being flogged for $800
*The big green hardware stores will be very familiar to Aussies who live anywhere close to a metropolitan area, I just don't want them to get free publicity on ElReg.
Awesome news. As an aussie war crypto enthuasuist I love hearing such good news about Bletchley Park.
So much is said about ensuring that history is preserved that the funds are directed to making sure that physical things like ordnance and equipment is kept for historical needs that the other factors that made the wars successful such as intellengence gathering are left out.
Thank you for committing to preserve a great history.
RTFA - Samgung has capitulated by REMOVING features to get that contentious patent tally down, as a result buyers are receiving a crippled product.
I'm going to buy one anyway because the crippled version is very likely to work properly once the homebrewers get their hands on a complete version.
If this actually gets followed through fully. I am happy that at least my preferred browser maker has made a statement of intent to follow up, but we might see one or two days before the deadline a reversal from Mozilla.
I sincerely hope that doesn't happen though and we see a few more point upgrades to blacklist non-conforming CA's.
After over 10 years of having HP hardware to work with I left that job went to another outfit who decided to buy Canon printers, well.... it only took me 30 minutes on each and every desktop to install a convoluted proprietary printer network driver... and that was before trying to get online scanning from the MFP's. Scanning simply won't work unless the computer AND printer are on the same physical network switch.
...this is going to be good to watch.
It has all the good things that make up a great train wreck....
1. serial pest who can't get enough of his head on tv
2. Id10t lawyer who can't read a case number properly
3. CNN who keeps putting him on TV as a cyber security specalist
4. And an imploding business... see http://ligattleaks.org
His actual twitter feed is a joy to behold @gregorydevans
But I'm undecided as to which is more fun to read, the real one or the parody @gregory_d_evans (until it gets changed as someone has filed a complaint to twitter!!)
PS, can ElReg please add a GregEvans icon... surely there is a CC licensed version out in the ether!!
Not too much info to be found on the ACTUAL site... pity.
The only thing I have found is the orphaned webpage referred to in the twitter post.
On the other hand, I still am amazed at how many people still use the same password on sites as their email accounts and then wonder why they are compromised. I just use an email alias that forwards to an unpublished account. This almost ensures that if these breaches happen, I will never have an active email account compromised.
