Unmanned German sperm dirigible 'to fly within days'

Hindenburg II

Hmm, replace the flammable hydrogen with helium, then trail a huge tail full of explosive gaseous fuel. What could possibly go wrong?

Want one

I typed 'Miley Cyrus' into what I assume was the search box, and hit return. It returned no links at all. WIN! Can we have one in english please?

Worm breeds botnet from home routers, modems

Thumb Down

Not so smart after all...

Read the research paper folks:

"Several revisions of the NB5 modem shipped with a flaw which meant that the web configuration interface was visible from the WAN side, accepting connections and allowing users to administer the modem using the default username and password of 'admin' from outside the LAN. Furthermore, some of these modems suffered from another flaw, meaning that by default, authentication was not enabled for the web interface – meaning no username or password was required."

It wouldn't take Keanu Reeves with a cable in his head to crack that ...

Methinks a media relations course is called for.

"Safeguarding children is top priority for this Government and the child has been put at the heart of our reforms and we are determined to maintain a relentless focus on children’s safety." - Department for Children, Schools and Families

"The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation." - Adolf Hitler "Mein Kampf"

There is no suitable icon.

Financial Implications

Frankly, I'm worried about the income stream the govt. will be losing from FOI and Data Protection Act requests. There's no point in paying them for a copy of Everything They Know about me when I can just download it from WikiLeaks in a couple of weeks time.

Get your German interior minister's fingerprint here

Ken Baker

I've *got* it!

The answer is obvious. Fingerprints are way too easy for crims and hackers to obtain, therefore:

Arse prints.

Scientists create 'no-tears' onion

Obvious, really.

Very Effective

After reading this, I was able to command my cat to use the bathroom toilet.

Little bastard still ignored me and shat in my slippers again, though.
