Comment Can you really blame google (Score 5, Insightful) 188

This seems like junk that Dell have installed to make some cash one the side. If firefox bundled the same dns hijacker then who would you blame? Firefox or google?

Just because google make the tool doesn't mean its their fault that it is installed by default in a spywareish fashion.

Submission + - Script Kiddie Foils Microsoft

An anonymous reader writes: A forum user (going by the handle Computer User) over at keznews has successfully created a brute force keygen for Microsoft Windows Vista. Within hours, the news had spread like wildfire to all corners of the internet, garnering public reaction ranging from disbelief to praise. Computer User shortly thereafter posted a statement of regret for 'hacking' Microsoft's unhackable validation. Sarcasm or sincerity?

Journal Journal: Touring the UK 4

Well last week I got to see the North East, an area of the country which I have always imagined to be run down and crappy.

I was pleasantly surprised, I'm sure there are run down parts of these cities but the centers were very nice.

Map of where I went.

1. Started from Leicester
2. Harrowgate
-- There was a large show called the "Great Yorkshire Show" and this really held us up. Didn't get to look around much.

Journal Journal: The fire alarm incident. | Visit to Palace of Westminister

Well I finally found out what was going to happen to me for setting off that fire alarm. (see older JE).
I got called into a meeting with the head of all residences. The meeting went well but they had to charge me a fine but they were fair. It was only £75 and cost of repair (£64).
It was a stupid thing to do but hey I was drunk and it seemed a good idea at the time.
