Brussels changes its mind AGAIN on .EU domains: Euro citizens in post-Brexit Britain can keep them after all

the suffix '.eu' speaks volumes for the stinking mess around the european union....

DXC Technology bids $2bn for Swiss big cheese Luxoft

Chubby Chuckles

What a shame, Luxoft had a good business going there, even if they were focusing too much on automobile electronics and associated voodoo, which is currently entering into 'ye olde trough of disilussionment' as people realize the lawsuits around self driven car deaths will be nearly as expensive as building the actual chariots. Maybe that's why they sold out to Mickey and his asset stripping mafia?

Chubby Chuckles

This smells of buying revenue and digital credibility, but it seems doubtful many Luxoft customers or partners will stick around to work with DXC, who are a bunch of No Known Skills muppets. Let the asset stripping continue until morale improves!

Fake news? More like ache news. Grandma, grampa 'more likely' to share made-up articles during US election

surely it's nationalist vs globalization rather than left vs right...

NHS England claims it will be all-digital within the decade

They will need to bite the bullet and centralize around a medical records system like epic, otherwise it will be a jigsaw puzzle of terrible old technologies

DXC hit with sueball over layoff steamroller's share price dip

Chubby Chuckles

By my calculations we are 4 years away from zero employees at DXC base don current attrition. This will then be the perfect business model

National disgrace

THE UK has a long and illustrious history of breaking the land speed record and 1000mph is probably the last big one. Noble broke the sound barrier at BlackRock, has a wonderful track record of getting it done.

Presumably no big corporate sponsors would pony up enough, but you'd think the MoD airforce marketing buffoons would see the value of sponsoring this, and find some dodgy slush fund somewhere to get this done in the national interest. hopefully someone will buy all the kit and resurrect it? I really hope so.

Good post on Scarf & Goggles https://scarfandgoggles.wordpress.com/2018/10/31/welcome-back-to-the-1930s/

"You accept responsibility for the hoaxes and claim that you are a psychopath with a history of killing small animals,"

Will look good on future resume though

HCL picks up Notes, spanks total of $1.8bn at Honest John's IBM software sale

IT support bonanza

Presumably HCL will be making a fortune 'supporting' why Notes doesn't work. 10 years ago I was working for a large console games company who had Notes and a whole house of cards of mission critical apps, particularly legal systems.

To search email one would have to set up the search parameters before going to a meeting or lunch, if you were lucky it would serve up the results within an hour. Last I heard they are still limping along with Notes.

This is a tune up bonanza and the sort of black box head scratcher problems that are ideal for IT outsourcers to 'solve' at a cost
