I've never worked on the NHS systems but ive worked on a lot of systems and some were NOT setup to handle this type of attack.....i would hope that the NHS endpoint PC's which are being presented with this ransomeware message are acting as Terminals i.e Installed with windows but locked down to the point that data CANNOT be saved locally to the C:\ drive. That way if the PC is infact encrypted then the patient records that the PC has been accessing are on a Network location and that network location (server) is not affected? - the PC can be re-imaged although inconvenient, recoverable to OS Level. if the PC's hold local databases loaded with patient info then im afraid someone needs an @ss kicking.
N.B would be nice to heard from someone who has worked on the NHS IT Systems at Engineer/1'st/2'nd/3'rd line level to get an idea of the setup.
I have just upgraded to this phone, i've always been a HTC fan, but since O2 stopped doing HTC's i had to get the closest alternative....up until month ago, i had never heard of "onePlus"...so had really look at what the phone had to offer. It Looks almost like the HTC One M9 i upgraded from, it has more storage and the battery life is amazing, i can comfortably get 2 days out of a single charge.
It doesn't use a standard MicroUSB Charger, it uses its own "lightening port" charger.....so the Micro USB Charger i have at work, in the car and at home were rendered useless.......until i found Cheap Knock off Micro USB to Lightening port convertord on ebay for £3....they work, but don't charge at lightning speed.
Overall, amazed with the phone, but disappointed with the use of a proprietary charger....
....with sub average intelligence.
And if that fails then perhaps run the image past someone and ask for a second opinion. Or maybe even Google it.
This is another reason I am not on any social media, I left facebook back in 2013 after 7 years....haven't missed it one bit. I am actually proud to say I am not on any social media at all.
My motto is that there is Nothing social about social media.
That is all.
2) Bad language - he probably said to one of his mates "look dude, this sh!t is the Bomb" in typical american fashion, to which the teacher has overheard and chosen to take action. if he had used proper English and said "well hello Charles, this is indeed my home made clock, which is far superior to yours" then all of this could have been avoided.
I blame facebook.
BB are doing exactly what nokia SHOULD have done when they instead chose to go with Microsoft.
Now that the partnership with MS is over, Nokia find themselves in an awkward position whereby the cant use any other OS providers until the end of 2016 IIRC. so BB have a perfect opportunity to potentially open up a market lead on Nokia....if they ever do decide to go with Android, which my god, i hope they do!
1) AOL Software is terrible, always has been, always will be
B) Its used by people who think that because it has "On Line" in it's title it MUST be the only way to get on the internet
D) things don't "just change", the dial up number has obviously been changed by the user, or by malicious software *think back to early p0rn dialers that would install themselves back in the days of 56k modems"
5) For a dialer to be installed, you have to have been on some very dodgey sites or clicked on some very dodgey link on a webpage or email.
My analysis is this - he genuinely ran up that amount of bill because he had been browsing pr0n and not realized that the dialer had installed - he is now pleading innocence and using his age and senior citizen status to play the victim.
A man walks into the computer shop and says to the chap behind the counter...
"My computer keeps playing the same sounds, over and over"
Computer man asks
"what kind of sounds?"
"Rolling in the Deep, and Someone like you"
Computer man says
"i think that's because its, Adele"
Adele, get it, A, Dell......A.....Dell
Thank you, i'm here all week.
wow, i don't care who you are, or what you do, you cannot tell me that since the since the invention of the mobile phone you have been worried about it bending!? its such a none issue.
Things bend if you try to bend them - mobile phones will bend if you try to bend them and they will break, WOW someone stop the press, how did Newton not predict this!!?!?!
If you don't want a broken phone, don't try to bend it. and Normal use doesn't have to be defined, any human with sub average intelligence knows that if you use a phone properly, the chances of it bending are slim to none.
I had pretty much the same experience with another Hosting company recently.
Company website setup and registered by an employee who had now left. I had to get into the hosting control panel to be able to update the whois details and billing info.
i called the tech support people, gave them the whole story, they said unfortunately they couldn't give me access without some form of lengthy verification involving photo ID, letter headed paper, faxes etc....this was all too long....
SO, i called them the next day, and pretended to be the original domain register (the ex-employee who left) i said i was having some issues getting into the account, they said they'd send me a confirmation email to get access back to the account -i said that wont work as we are having email issues at the moment, they said OK we'll call you on the number registered to the account (the main reception number) i agreed to this, i then called reception, told her of the imminent call and when the person asks for "[ex employee's name]" to put them through to me......sure enough 5 minutes later they called reception, got put through to me to which i answered "hello [ex-employee's name]" - the guy was happy he had got through to the right person and i was then granted full access to the account and was able to change everything.

I do hope they manage to wake it up. it seems the hardest part is complete, actually landing on the comet. so providing it latched on securely and has managed to capture enough sunlight and store it well then hopefully it should boot up as expected....although i am no scientist and "Boot Up" was probably the wrong term to use.....
I'd love to see some new pictures of its managed to spin its camera around as the last pics we saw it seemed to be staring at a fairly un-interesting rock face....
I'd also like to see some shots from the orbiter if they manage to locate it on the comet to see just how far it was from it's intended landing site.
Why does one need a watch that performs the same basic functions as a phone as well as owning a phone to interface with ones watch. without one the other seems pointless. do you want to tell the time? - buy a watch. Do you want to make a phone call? - use a phone. do you want to check your calendar, use your watch....oh wait you haven't got your phone on you, ah well you can only tell the time then.....oh wait it's been 19 hours since you last recharged, in that case you can now neither tell the time nor check your calendar on your £18k diamond encrusted wrist tat. a £1 watch from tat land will still outlast this iwatch in terms of purely telling the time. it all strikes me as pretty pointless.
thank you for reading, you have a good day now.
...that when the sys-admins announced, "both channels have gone down".....someone from the other side of the office replied....."Surely you cant be serious!?"
to much hilarity of the command center which then proceeded to use further airplane quotes throughout the day, just to lighten the mood.
i do hope that happened.
Why not just say it....the contract is the Managed Service contract you were providing to the WM Morrisons Supermarket Chain, which you lost in Tender to Fujitsu. How do i know that? I worked there, on that contract! - A poor sales presentation and an inability to "sell" what a great service had already been done, you lost a massive amount of ££££ as well as a number of great engineers, myself included.
as a someone who worked for cc for 7 years and left in 2013, i can tell you that Mr Norris's main focus is not the companies engineers or indeed the service that cc provides, his focus is simply to line the pockets of the Shareholders - this is another example of CC making big bucks and not passing any of it out (by way of bonus, or incentive) to it's actual hard working workforce - so glad i left them. #sourgrapes
a friend of mine from SA told me that in nightclubs, clubbers are searched on entry and made to hand over their guns to a "cloakroom" style attendant who then hands them a ticket for collection at the end of the night......SO......a Sober person hands the gun over, and at the end of the night a Drunk/Drugged clubber collects said gun and heads home.......just think about that one.
the thrust bearing in a "normal" car is really only designed to take force Forwards and backwards form the clutch plates pushing against it and providing a method of keeping it all spinning while an appropriate gear is selected. Most thrust bearings are cheaply made and it's not uncommon to see plastic encased thrust bearings (the Citroen picasso for example) again a sign that they are only designed for a specific force to be applied.
In the case of this article, the shaft mounted bearing is only designed to take the "waggle" out of the shaft and is not designed to take a forward load for the engagement of gears.
so, im afraid it's not a thrust bearing. but just a Bearing.
i came on here expecting to see a rifle that had been built from old washing machine parts that had been pinched from peoples front gardens by an overly friendly if somewhat intimidating irish man whose preferred method of transport is the Transit Van.............instead i am greeted by what appears to be a completely false NO SCRAP METAL USED WHAT SO EVER article, showing a rifle being built from every piece of correct equipment. i feel cheated.
