No Xmas office party? Missing infosec pals and colleagues? Want to listen to DJs who also happen to be cyber warriors?

Thumb Up

Seriously I hope this event does well

But, as a deejay, albeit nowadays, a ghost deejay, guessing the age of the attendees, I cringe at the amount of "mum and dad" dancing that will happen. People in there 4th or 5th decade trying to show they are still "with it". Always made me laugh.

Why did Apple hamstring camera repairs on standard iPhone 12 but leave Pro Max module swappable? asks engineering group

Re: Amateur vs professional

@hammarbtyp

I am most certainly NOT a professional, (hell, a professional would probably laugh at my efforts) but I still use my T90 a lot. And then spend hours in my darkroom developing my photos. Joy indeed!

Millions wiped off value of Capita outsourcing deal with English councils amid 'further contract variation agreement'

Re: I don't know

@KittenHuffer

You are absolutely right. I was wrong to use that number.

But I will stand by my overall sentiment that the councillors that decided to sign contracts with Capita were clueless. Otherwise why are they trying to change the terms now?

Cheers… Ishy

P.S. I am now writing very much tongue in cheek. But KittenHuffer? You have put a picture in my mind that I am trying hard to unsee.

I don't know

who are the biggest twats here.

Whether it be Capita management or the self serving, self important councillors, whose only skill is maximising expenses claims.

At the end of the day, there are now 380 employees worried to death that their lives may be about to be shattered thanks to the above mentioned bastards.

I care not whether people use Photoshop or Gimp. Whatever they are happy with is good. But I take exception to your sentence...

Bollocks. After more years of practising than I am going to mention, I would drink you under the table without trying. As long as you are paying!!! Please try and "man up" before making such ludicrous statements!

Re: Brexit?

@ Marco van de Voort

This article is about Boeing and the death of 346 people.

Somehow it descended into the "Brexit remainer" tripe.

But you hit a new low with chlorinated chicken crap.

What has that got to do with dead people and grieving families?

Re: Bought votes?

As have Euro Mps. I did find this article.

When I switched to Signal, the hardest part of doing so was getting all my friends to do the same. I had to resort to telling them I had deleted Whatsapp. Somewhat surprisingly, it mostly worked

Re: "...so bad, it's not even wrong."--Wolfgang Pauli

@nautica

(I REFUSE to refer to those things as smartphones; most all who use them are dumber than a box of rocks. "Smart" only refers to the people who make and sell the things).

I go on bended knees and abase myself before your obvious superiority.

There are 4 of us that have equal shares in our business. We make a profit margin that would make Apple envious. Our customers are happy as they run a profit margin that makes us envious.

My son uses Facebook and several other suchlike sites. (I think Discord is the flavour of the month.) He mostly uses an iPad. His telephone, like ours, is usually in his pocket. Oh and he has a B.Sc.

So,, smartphones are for dumb rocks?
