Comment Re:Here in Ireland... (Score 1) 368

Tell me more... I'm a sysadmin who loves a challenge. What else do these guys do? I would love to read their end user license agreement. Probably says something like "WE READ YOUR EMAIL!" Go to here and see if your ip address always changes, if it does everytime then they are proxying you in a pool of addresses, if it changes everytime you reboot your dsl modem, that's just because it's dhcp. I would be very very surprised if they proxied everything. Plus you can't proxy SSL sessions without breaking them, so things like gmail should act normally if they are doing things they aren't meant to... What make is the DSL modem?

mysqlbytes writes: While inspecting historical temperature graphs, Steve McIntyre, who operates the site climateaudit.org, noticed a strange discontinuity, or "jump" in many locations, all occurring around the time of January, 2000. The graphs were created by NASA's Reto Ruedy and James Hansen (who shot to fame when he accused the administration of trying to censor his views on climate change). Hansen refused to provide McKintyre with the algorithm used to generate graph data, so McKintyre reverse-engineered it. The result appeared to be a Y2K bug in the handling of the raw data.

Submission + - Nokia to replace 43 Million Batteries (bbc.co.uk)

mysqlbytes writes: According to a recent post on the BBC's website, Nokia has admitted to a problem in the BL-5C batteries made by Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006.
