Google Search Flagging Everything As Potentially Harmful

sepluv Re:Broke the internets! (407 comments)

I was searching for "Counter Terrorism Act 2008 right to silence" when I first came across this, but after a split-second press of the print-screen key, I figured Google had borked majorly as every link on the SERP was flagged as malware (as was confirmed a second later when searching for "Google").

Why don't the British make computers?

I'll have you know a Brit, Charles Babbage, designed the first computer. Now, he may have never actually managed to get the thing built so it worked, but...oh never mind...

Barack Obama Is One Step Closer To Being President

sepluv Re:for all the founding fathers did right (601 comments)

You do realise that the main reasons for adopting an electoral college system were practical? Specifically, that communicating the results, let alone running a single co-ordinated election, took a very long time (with only horses), and that the union was newly formed so the states still didn't trust each other or the federal goverment?

State Agency to Destroy Unauthorized USB Drives

sepluv Re:Won't work, even with all the good faith... (179 comments)

I don't see what is so draconian about terminating government employees who take personal data (that might be used for, say, ID theft) on citizens out of the building, no doubt committing a crime under data protection legislation in the process. After a few terminations, I'm sure they'd stop doing it. Governments tend to be way to lax with our data allowing their employees to repeatedly "mislay" it.
