(Didn't I once work in tech support with this guy?)

Let's face it, how many of us have wanted to do this?

Hahaha, I love this story. Normally I don't approve of gun use, but I might make an exception here :)

"We now no longer need terrorists. We're so good at terrorising ourselves." Obviously, this is American. But feel free to translate it to any British security policy for a similar effect.

Faith leading to action: action rooted in Faith. So simple. Perfect. 
Last week I went to a lecture given by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at Lambeth Palace.  Since becoming the C of E’s top man, Welby has caught the public’s imagination and headlines t...

A force for good, whatever your belief; A lovely reminder that Christ inspires life-transforming answers to many of the issues we face.

You have to admit, when the Church of England wants to land a punch, it does it in the nicest possible way. Last night’s launch at Church House of On Rock or Sand, a report on values in public life edited by John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, was an example of how to do moral outrage without compromising good manners. The place was bristling with MPs and former ministers, former Speaker Betty Boothroyd and a bearded bishop in sandals.

Clever. I'm amazed at the skills of scientists like this. And even more amazed by what they can uncover...
 
A fragment of what could be the earliest copy of the Gospel of Mark - the oldest of the four canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and central to the belief system of Christianity - is set to be published after being discovered in the...

Yeah! Now, this is how it's done! (Once more, for emphasis - trickle-down economics is bunk).

The owner of Gravity Payments, a credit card processor in Seattle, said he heard stories of how tough it was to make ends meet even on salaries that exceeded the federal minimum wage.

I think +GoogleNow​ is the best voice search out there - it's the most thorough, the most accurate and the fastest, too. But for a bit of sparkle and personality? Then it had to be Siri! 
Siri, the intelligent assistant of Apple users. Have you talked to her? If you have, then you'd know what sense of humor she has, what range of emotions she has, what level of intelligence she has! Siri is definitely one of the most loved smart assistant people have, and one of the greatest innovations Apple has brought about! Here are fifteen awesome, super-duper 'Siri moments' when she totally nailed it! Do share!

So, let me get this straight: a couple of criminals set up an escrow-model site to help other criminals to do business with each other. These criminals then run off with all of the other criminals' money... And they're shocked by this?! Hahaha!

I know you get asked to fill in loads of petitions, but I’d be personally very grateful if you would take the time to sign this serious one: abolishing prescription charges for sufferers of Cystic Fibrosis (a genetic condition for which there is no cure) https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/free-prescriptions-for-cystic-fibrosis This would help to improve the lives of more than 10,000 people in the UK – not least of all, my own sister-in-law.

You can find out more about what it’s like to actually live with Cystic Fibrosis (and the impact that your support would have) here: http://www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk/about-cf

The next campaign I’m passionate about is getting Cadbury’s to reverse their perverse, shameful and scandalous decision to change the Crème Egg chocolate recipe, but this cause seems weightier at the moment!
Cystic Fibrosis is a condition that affects over 10,000 people in the UK, patients consume a large amount of Antibiotics over there shortened lifespans. Cystic Fibrosis is only missing from the "exempt from prescription charges" list because when the list was written, no one over the age of 18 was alive with the condition. A shocking justification for harvesting cash of patients who have no control over the prescriptions they are issued. It is un...

Sadly, you are most probably right.

The trade-off between usability and security: if it's easy to use (i.e. you don't have to log in to access it), then it isn't secure. Surely the fact that everyone has access codes to secure their own home wifi routers should be an indication to them that, if you don't need an access code to access a wifi network, then it isn't secure?

Whilst the headline is impressive (7-years-old?! Wow...), this should be a wake-up to everyone using public wifi.

"...nearly two thirds (59%) of Britons regularly use unsecure Wi-Fi hotspots, with one in five (20%) doing so weekly or more to bank online (19%) shop (25%), send emails and documents (31%), and use social media platforms (50%)"

Well of course I've seen it before... But it is brilliant.

Got to love those sysadmins!
