Hm, remote learning has been possible for a long time, via Radio for example in Australia
Remember seeing Blue Peter do a thing on outback kids learning via Radio back in the 70s.

This is for starting VMs so maybe bandwidth but it needs to rehydrate the disks and find a slot on a host to run the VM.
Both are probably requisitioned for higher priorities and i'm sure the algo puts MS internal needs (Teams, O365 etc..) above anyone else including emergency services.
Would love to see that decision tree published.
There is no reason to use a common ERP system in the UK. None. Take Surrey for example.
It is unique.
Unique air, in fact as it passes over Surrey it's improved for the next borough
Unique Roads, the smell of freshly laid Surrey tarmac in the morning is like nothing else.
Unique Trees, we even have a hill named after a tree.
Truly Unique and deserves its own stand alone system not some insanity like this https://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/08/02/oracle_r12_for_6_london_councils/
"I know for a fact that the media in China and Russia (and other countries for that) is far more critical than the media in the Western World"
That is clearly untrue, the 'Lock him up' chants to Trump were covered in multiple papers and TV segments. You think this would happen with Xi? Putin?
Forgotten the Snowden revelations all over the Guardian? you know of any leaks on Chinese Surveillance in the Chinese press?
That said outlets like the Guardian have clearly got closer to the government on security matters post Snowden but if they had a juicy blockbuster story, i'd say they would run it.
"no one DARES to attack US soil"
they must have had short memories. The Trade Towers were already car bombed in 1993. 6 dead, >1000 injured.
Bad enough but the plan was to collapse the north tower into the south, if the bomb was in a different position that might have happened.
"Because I work for a company called NSO Group, and according to their statements, have found and used vulnerabilities in their WhatsApp architecture, to provide security agencies and governments sophisticated tools to prevent the next 9/11"
Ya well they didn't need "sophisticated tools" to prevent the last 9/11 just not to be silo'd and hate each others agencies.
And oh yeah when getting a direct tip actually follow it up.
"On August 11, 2001, Moussaoui and his roommate, Hussein al-Attas, arrived in Egan, Minnesota and checked into a hotel. Moussaoui began classes at Pan Am Flight School there on August 13, 2001. On Wednesday, August 15, 2001, an employee at Pan Am called the FBI's Minneapolis Field Office because the employee and other Pan Am employees were suspicious of Moussaoui."
The mother of a friend of mine is going through dementia but has care in her home, initially private now council.
They installed a hoist to help the carers get her out of bed.
Each time he visits it appears to be relegated to a towel rail and looks unused, his mother is basically left in bed full time. The foreign carers don't speak much English so conversations don't happen either.
Relying on humans in your old age? Good luck with that.
This is ID cards pure and simple despite them claiming it wasn't.
The cost of this at 0.6719 Pg (60m) and counting completely overshadows any fraud prevention savings so no reason for it there.
Its still required for claiming the dole so poor people have to have it.
No doubt the minister Regina Doherty will try to push some laws through to shore things up.
She had said the PSC card was "mandatory not compulsory". Ah lawyers, don't you just love them.
Hardly any wonder Politicians are held in such low esteem.
I would not read much into it. from the pictures there is no 737 MAX either it is either -7,-8,-9. although the -8 is so popular it is often referred to as 737 MAX
the 'Ryanair' model (it is not exclusive to Ryanair) always had the Variant type of 737-8200 as displayed on its LOPA,
It just looks to me that had a shortage of space to put the label so they took the short code in both cases.
Had a A/C unit delivered yesterday, an iGenix.
Comes with WIFI connectivity and an App, also links to Alexa.
I've linked the App and its cool to control from my phone, although its actually easier to just use the front panel.
Looking forward to the patch your iGenix now article from el Reg, although it gives no clue how to do that.
This is on the right track but there is a lot more that can be done
1 - Specialist Skills, having a English or Economics Degree will be of no use in understanding, scoping and running IT projects as a client, they just won't have a clue. France have the École nationale d'administration which provides training to Civil Servants and something similar is needed here, they need to know what an IT project is from the inside out. I mean which initiative does not include an IT angle these days.
2- Providers should be forced to publish all estimate and actual's in time and money for IT projects both Private and Public above a certain amount, this will highlight failures and help to break up the the large consultancies who are effectively mugging private customers who are unable to check history of work. I've seen this in practice and it involves legal documents with NDA's attached post a failure.
Failures should be made into case studies and circulated, as engineering failures (bridges etc..) are today.
I probably fall into the race away from the lights category but i focus on situational awareness and i believe a slightly more "exciting" drive keeps me focused. 25 accident free years in a car (not on a M/C unfortunately as people really don't see you).
If you drive like you are sitting on your home sofa then you are quiet likely to switch off and miss clues to situations that are developing.
For example on the motorway i can often tell when people are about to pull into my lane by keeping an eye on how fast they are coming up on the car/truck in front of them, they don't need to indicate and often don't but i will already have moved out of their way just in case.
If computers can get to that level of anticipation then that will be a major safety leap forward.
"According to the Treasury, the government has raised £550m in Income Tax and National Insurance contributions in the first 12 months since it was introduced."
No doubt this figure is juiced but also this is paid for by higher contractor rates to public bodies which is tax payers money, so basically HMRC have quite likely goosed 550mil from the tax payers, then given it back to them and expect them to be grateful?
They were always going to roll it into the private sector so the consultation was fake, it will have an impact in how flexible business can be and my rates will go up to cover any extras.
Do you drive? Then you are complicit in mass murder and potential murder.
Every trip is potentially fatal for someone.
WHO estimates 1.35 million deaths worldwide from RTA's in 2016. In ONE year.
Clearly the only way to get that number to zero is to ban driving, for cars, trucks and yes buses since they kill too, and fall down ravines when they get tired. Yes its a small few who cause the problem but sorry only a ban will stop the carnage. Its for the best and of course thinking of the children and the unborn children of the dead and their unborn......
Unless you think the risk is acceptable?
back in the client/server day there was no major system I used that didn't let you design your own reports, mainly by using Crystal Reports rpt files.
The Delphi ERP system i worked on used QuickReport and again users could design and upload their own.
Its basic functionality and replacing it with a listview in a webpage you can group is no replacement.
Try using the employers PRSI pages.
- List of months and amounts shown
- click 1999 era radio button on month you need to pay
- New form displayed black with none of the relevant information, you key it all in manually.
Their motto seems to be "its not our problem, its yours"
depends on what you mean by 'very old days'
in the early eighties our school programming course was paper only with the joy of 30 kids standing around the single terminal of the DEC PDP/11 housing in a room the size of a bathroom once a week watching a lucky suck-up (pupil) type the program in and seeing if it worked.
Still loved it so i got the principal to agree to let me in early in the morning, boot the computer, play with it and then have the room key back by 9. it took 10 minutes to boot up...
This is barely a rounding error on the rounding error in banks.
Other sources like the FT has it as
3m FX transactions worth $250bn thats billioooooon
I tend to read these puffs pieces as: our internal tech is shit, really shit, we done this other thing that that everyone is talking about and is less shit.
Aren't we great.
I doubt this is terrorism of the global type e.g. ISIS, if they had really wanted to do this i suspect they would have taken out Heathrow and Birmingham as well.
With 3 airports down the sheer stacking delays could have caused emergency landings due to lack of fuel.
Yes they carry extra but as the Ryanair Spanish incident has shown some cut it as low as they can get away with.
As a frequent Gatwick flyer my sympathies to those affected.
Oh and Gatwick, buy some frikin Megaphones for god's sake. Talking to the first 5 people in a queue is brain dead.
Well there is the vote on Dec 11.
If the Gov lose they have no authority so sign the Deal with the EU so unless something changes its a hard Brexit come March.
If they do lose something else will probably happen but we don't know what that is, yet.
I'm stockpiling Popcorn...
Pretty much this ^^
Inhouse development is different as you can sometimes amortize what's needed for true testing over multiple projects, if brought in on off projects you are in trouble, it goes like this
Go-Live dates and feature lists are not normally set by the worker techs.
They are told 'here are 200 features that have to be in day 1' (often not this simple, see Agile)
Then they are told when day 1 is, at some point in the project.
There can be any number of reasons this date is picked: could be a post year end period, all company presentation, 'quiet period', Christmas, end of life date on previous product, IPO date, astrologer says so etc..
Load testing is then put at number 201 on the list, some people churn happens on the project, it never happens.
The above list is fine in a perfect world, you will be lucky if you are ever on a project that can do it.
When they say 'Gang' is this just a 'database' of mainly black men on the street?
I mean, does it include the often white gangs involved in Drug dealing, Burglary, Fraud, Money Laundering etc..
Does it also include the gangs who like to bombard old people with charity requests, leading to suicide in some cases.
The Pension management fraud gangs? on average victims lose around £91,000
Just trying to get a grip on whether this is THE one true Gang Matrix or really the 'Black Street Gang Matrix'
Seem to be trying to leverage fairly out of fashion concepts like RDF.
Fair enough but unless it has a way to encrypt and split your data across multiple locations with only you able to decrypt or provide tokens for certain elements plus some revenue model via ad or micropay mechanism i don't see this as being that radical.
I've argued with relatives about avoiding Facebook due to its narrowing of the web and data slurping and its only recently they have any inkling of what i was warning about.
Facebook is massive due to ignorance and laziness and until evolution removes both there will always be a Facebook of some kind or other for the masses, long long after i'm gone.
