The Register Hacked

Claws Of Doom Re:Website hacked? (192 comments)

With apologies to the reg's admins, I tried to get to a story I was reading earlier on, and got the following in return:

Not Found The requested URL /2011/09/02/samsung_webos_acquisition_no_not_ever/ was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Recovering the Slums of the Internet?

Claws Of Doom Re:You Don't. That's the point. (218 comments)

Car Analogy: If you're doing your own oil changes, and instead of hauling the waste oil to a recycler, you dump it into your backyard, don't complain when you try and sell your house and the highest bid still leaves you $100,000 underwater on your mortgage, or requires you to spend $150,000 remediating it. Your property is worth less than it could have been, had you only been a better steward of it.

I'd hate to see your house analogies.

Book Recommendations For Maths To Astrophysics?

Claws Of Doom As an astrophys graduate (276 comments)

I have to confess that sometimes the gentlest intoductions were the best. The most expensive book on my reading list was Astronomy: The Evolving Universe, by Zeilik. I still love reading it to this day. Yes, maybe too many pictures for those that like the heavy stuff. If you really want to understand the basic principles - introduced in an absolutely clear manner - you won't get better.

EveryDNS taken over by DynDNS: update

Claws Of Doom Claws Of Doom writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Claws Of Doom (721684) writes "The users of EveryDNS have been updated with more information about the DynDNS takeover by email. The email says that if you donated to EveryDNS, you will get what is apparently the same service for free from DynDNS.

... anyone who has donated to David and EveryDNS since 2001 will be grandfathered into free Custom DNS hosting with Back in 2001 we made an announcement to our 19,000 free Custom DNS users that they would have service for life because of their early adopter loyalty. We promise to honor that same commitment to you. Have no fear.

Free public wi-fi for Swindon, England.

Claws Of Doom Claws Of Doom writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Claws Of Doom (721684) writes "The BBC are reporting that Swindon Borough Council is to offer free public wi-fi internet access to all the town's residents. Subscribers to the service — to be called Signal — will have limited access but could pay for enhancements to the service, such as 20Mb/s speed upgrades. This fee would be "significantly less" than current broadband suppliers, scheme bosses estimate. The £1m project will be run by Digital City UK Ltd, in which Swindon Borough Council has a 35% share."
