Possibly explains why the cesg guys got certain usn related chips destroyed on The Guardian kit that had held Snowdens files - perhaps they'd already done this and wanted the evidence removed
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Oh that explains why all the memorabilia has gone since we visited 5 years ago and last year.
Very sad that this of the park has gone, it really helps the younger ones to see things in context with the work that went on there, seeing real life artifacts such as toys and the scenes from the time.
Also explains why we cant buy 1 ticket at the entrance for both the Park and the Computing museum with Colossus etc inside it.
Again all very sad that they cant get this joined up to work together, moss other places are putting on living history stuff and BP is pulling it all out.
Seems the main problem here (as already noted by others) was a lack of DR facility not moving to the cloud. But this is the same for many SMB's, requirements for a decent internet connection (not in the costs and quite a bit) and you STILL need a DR solution for alot of the stuff. Googles and others have suffered outages.
Also they've struggled with the online versions of the accounts and expenses system, just because it's a SaaS solution doesn't mean it any good!
Also moving from internal BIND to GoDaddy for DNS - seriously.....
All about risks, not just the fact the device is RS-232 only, but can the manufacturer support the equipment and if it fails whats the cost to the business while the machine is down.
Sure we can all get 486's with ISA cards if the device needs connectivity to the outside world, but the device of that is a business risk and needs Mgmt to be aware of the issue.
I've had a parts carousel system go down for weeks while we replace gearboxes, made worse by a switch from AC to DC by the manufacturer. Costs to the business were huge and all production was slowed down. Mgmt were informed of the risks but wouldnt spend any money till if broke.
Basically you're looking at a CYA situation, make sure mgmt are informed in writing (email etc) of the issues around the machines and what costs there are vs getting in new machines and added benefits of new machines
the UK is the same, it's all about being distracted from driving, using a phone/txting etc is just a specific examples
I've seen people applying makeup, eating, even reading a book (I kid not) never mind reading instructions or a map... they'll still pull you if the officer thinks you're driving distracted.
Quite - everything seemed to happen v quickly once the oil pipe broke. And yes the engine should be able to contain a broken blade
Allows get issues with new engines and the original Trent almost broke RR (its development costs being the major reason fir nationalising it in the 1970s from what I remember
Have been doing this for years. They constantly stream data to RR HQ and theres a team of highly experienced people watching the data. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPIYBgZNrsg&sns=tw
Another vote for LED
You can get v big 60" jobs quite easily and theres no burn-in esp if theres alot of static content as you imply
+1 to that exactly what i was thinking. Same for many countries
Uk is currently moving from the 7 tier IL 0-6 markers to a three tier system, so doesnt surprise the US are looking to follow this
So how does this work with the laws allowing those nice national security letter to be issued by the fbi etc?
All down to current CESG guidance on data soveriegnty. Until the new data classifications are fully launched (replacing the IL based system) this wont change, and event then its down to the accreditor to assess the risk so still doubtfull we'll be seeing any major offshoring
Since when was Dublin in the UK??? Not since Irish independance in the early 1920s.
Eire is a soverign state and given rhe history I can see why CESG wont entertain this level of offshoring
we dont like quakes in the UK so we'll keep the shale gas down there
Not here in the uk, and of course this price is very volatile anyway , more so then diesel with massive swings year on year.
