Equifax finally coughs up the money for its 2017 monster hack… to the banks for having to cancel your cards

And I'm being generous. A made up number backed by fraud, writ large and complicit. #rico

Suspicious senate stock sale spurt spurs scrutiny scheme: This website tracks which shares US senators are unloading mid-pandemic

Re: Shock

That's because luxury hotels, golf-courses, travel, services and all the supply chains involved employ the most people, not the financial services sector. It's how the tower structures are under duress at the minute as well. #awe

London court tells Julian Assange: No, coronavirus is not a good reason for you to be let out of prison

Canis Major.

It’s quite clear whether lay or stipend that the system is broken. Deport the man to his home country and export the law. #notproven

I wouldn’t believe a word of it, and there’s a lot of information still unavailable online or in sphere. #opendemocracy

It really is, much like asking for directions. Can we have the plans and license support. That’s the a point. #auditoff #boilerorgrandslam

If you're writing code in Python, JavaScript, Java and PHP, relax. The hot trendy languages are still miles behind, this survey says

From the other end of the spectrum. The cool kids talk in hex and colour binary. #ganglion

50 years is how far behind the UK legal system is. The law gets management partnerships for invoice, cut and paste. Society gets regulatory capture and nearly twenty years of reaping the a non-benchmarked set of bought idiots. #fuckupapublicbankrunaprivatebank

Things I learned from Y2K (pt 87): How to swap a mainframe for Microsoft Access

Code Integer.

This used to happen all the time within a bank payments department around the turn of the century into the present day. The system is down but the card payments and ATM withdrawals still work. Don’t tell the merchants on punters though. Now it’s it just it’s broken again and nothing works and costs everyone. #spreadsheetville #keepthemusicgoingitsawedding

Listen up you bunch of bankers. Here are some pointers for less crap IT

Bank of Fail.

Still no technologist’s near the governors table again. It’s not even worth checking the other failed organisations. The biggest anchor on the economy is banking. #10percentindustry90percentinfluence

Virtual inanity: Solution to Irish border requires data and tech not yet available, MPs told

StuntMisanthrope

Call my bluff.

Can I have a think tank please. So the entire population of the Ireland could use just the tube in a day and no-one would notice. That's without any other mode of transport, zoning and other malarkey. Sounds like a bilateral mobile infrastructure and investment footing. #productivity

StuntMisanthrope

Last train to nowhere.

Is it really any more complicated, than dare I say it the London public transport network. I'm afraid of big numbers too. #trythefish

We're all doooooomed: Gloomy Brit workforce really isn't coping well with impending Brexit

StuntMisanthrope

Look you stupid B*******,

You’ve got no arms left. The country is already in recession, and if the economy wasn’t so warped, by axis and finance, you’d have noticed. It’s a policy bubble, with vote for the Blacksmith party or leave the sceptred shores. Albeit a bifurcated dichotomy nonetheless. #itsafleshwound

The law is proprietary.

But identity is non-binary. Something’s not making any sense. #interface

Bloke who claimed he invented Bitcoin must hand over $5bn of e-dosh in court case. He can't. He's waiting for a time traveler to arrive

StuntMisanthrope

A criminal enterprise.

Straight from the horses mouth and in a court of law. How come a non-asset backed security is allowed to be traded on a financial market. #cashisonlycurrencyintown

Majority replicants need not apply.

Of say the more than the few hundred programming that exist, only a handful have been invented by females and of the most recent ones not for a while. That would be a good conference. #why

So to recap on the United Kingdom's technology advances over the last decade. A failed banking system, a failed pension system, a failed political system and a failed investment system, a bust accountancy institute, a fraudulent cut and paste reseller, a big unfinished and measured hole plus a pink credit card. €bigwins #taudeltaoff

That this AI can simulate universes in 30ms is not the scary part. It's that its creators don't know why it works so well

Pinball wizard. Pocket O'Credits.

Like a back actor. Can I have a sim please. Let's fire an ever descending serial particle spectral sequence from a lagrange gun, curved forward in time through the offset IDL and bounced back. Like a complicated flag with a planar barcode scanner at asteroids level. #wordsshapesconceptsandgenerationmaynotbeapplicable #magnetslater

So, outsource security and mind-trust to other bean-fuckwits. Here's the clue. The tower of bull-shit N repetition is the beady-eyed unsocialised autonomous tall-boy. #ouch #innovateout #profit

You keep it all in.

It's the worst currency in the history of ponzi's fingered by the usual registered suspects and evaders. MOND and greenshift. Seigniorage and double Gresham's all-round FWIW. #rochdaleandknockknock

HP CFO Cathie Lesjak didn't even read KPMG's Autonomy due diligence before $11bn biz gobble

StuntMisanthrope

Eh-oh!

I'll be adding that to the collection, for cut and paste. It's all a bit exemplary in my opinion. The thing about these safe habours. It's a very slim set of rules. That's a good thing I reckon and over the years the industrial balance improves prosperity. #wayoh

The best and worst of GitHub: Repos wiped without notice, quickly restored – but why?

Welcome back.

Much like every other lifestyle choice, it'll be an option, would you like AI available? Also think on this, the millenial generation have a much different view on socialised behaviour, what's acceptable, how people interact and speed of gratification. #ginandtonicalexa

Here's what Autonomy told its salesmen they were allowed to do

StuntMisanthrope

Pick a song.

Advancement after advancement, superceded by lack of timely capital or let's sell or load debt/equity to either ruin or foreign purchase. You can understand the dysfunction required to produce a financial, legal and inaccurate audit swamp with cambridge econonics. #climbthruthechair.api

AI has automated everything including this headline curly bracket semicolon

StuntMisanthrope

Was that my fault...

I have actually had a complaint and bollocking because a customer, being instructed and served the correct information whilst being directed into a sales funnel for their preferences and recorded for a future loyalty promotion because the Turing complete interaction, whilst saving the reception/switchboard a job during `a time of busy activity, as the lady did not realise that they had been talking to a machine and the collateral via human intervention had not arrived. #noinvoiceforyou

Timely Trump tariffs tax tech totally: 25 per cent levy on modems, fiber optics, networking gear, semiconductors…

StuntMisanthrope

I don't get it, nor a signal.

As a British citizen, you have an abundance of everything you require not only in currency, commodity, labor and previously successful manufacturing zones in decline. You look at the success of the experimental chemistry in glass manufacturing and much like our Kingdom, we seem to be enthralled in the main, by buying prepacked billing software, paying lawyers and indeed creating monetary obfuscation as opposed to considering why some areas have 7 bars of signal and others 1 or zero. Also at chip level, it's a game of mathematical comprehension not how easily a poor politician is bought as opposed to a rich one. #5barsofgov
