Yep, still got mine in the garage and my protocol analyser in a cupboard at work and a bit error rate tester with a built in breakout box. We've still got loads of RS232 and serial lines for out of band management over ISDN2, can be a real lifesaver when something goes down and you're 100s of miles away.
Excellent link, but to answer your question, yes the submerged repeaters/amplifiers are powered from the landing stations. In coax cables power went down the centre conductor, in optical fibre cables the repeaters are powered over the copper tube that surrounds the fibres. The power needed is pretty high and can be dangerous, especially if a trawler pulls one up and thinks it is good idea to free their gear (expensive fishing nets) by cutting the cable. They do get cut and, as mentioned in the Wiki, measurements from land can give a good idea of where to send the cable ship, the last repeater responding also gives an indication. The ship grapples the cable and makes repairs on deck.
"UPDATED 2/5/2018: After further investigation, Cisco has identified additional attack vectors and features that are affected by this vulnerability. In addition, it was also found that the original fix was incomplete so new fixed code versions are now available."
Best get testing and patching again...
Coventry is the home to the worst ring road design ever. They even have to publish instructions how to use it - which seem at odds with all other roads in the country http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/coventry-news/how-drive-coventry-ring-road-13716095
A but clenching experience if you've never driven on it before!
"then the temperature decreases by about 5.4°F for every 1,000 feet up you go in elevation."
Shouldn’t that be in approved Vulture Central units? “then the temperature decreases by about 3.5Hn for every 2178lg up you go in elevation.” You’re welcome.
"Hi, King Jack,
Can you cite me a computer OS that isn't useable as a remote-control trojan? Isn't that their raison d'être and a vital goal for ... well, Future Shenanigans is no exaggeration, is it? .
Some are just a bit trickier/stickier to access for provision of privileges than others, but none are fail-safe against penetration testers, and that provides ready made establishment platforms for Renegade Rogue and Private Pirate Controls to Command.
It's an Advanced IntelAIgent Facility which Sublime Superior Programming Delivers for SMARTR Use with Zero Abuse."
I was thinking more large corporates with thousands of machines. Windows updates will have a tried and tested and largely automated patch process (because it happens so often). Not so much when trying to patch/update a processor/chipsets. Installing NICs isn't really an option. Even identifying vulnerable machines will be quite a challenge.
"You're absolutely right - Google offered traffic flow information prior to buying Waze based on the relative speeds of any handsets running maps that were travelling on that road."
Are you sure? I think you'll find the mobile phone companies sell anonymised location data of all mobile phones which is why their traffic info is so good.
Anyone remember Multimap?
@Alan ""The people who own navies are pretty much the only ones who can cut undersea cables."
Experience shows that it's the people who own ship anchors and/or deep trawl rigs"
What he said. Back in the ‘80s when I worked on submarine cables (copper not fibre) trawlers dragging their anchors nearly isolated the UK. There were all sorts of tortuous re-routes and communications to the US had to go via satellite. Coincidentally BT engineers were on strike at the time...
