@robbo277 @peeceeuk @10DowningStreet Yup, as far as I've been able to make out, the plan (much like other bits of Brexit) seems to be to wait for it to go wrong and then tell the population how *mean* the EU are being, by demanding we not survei... protect the population en masse. That's assuming there *is* a plan

@robbo277 @peeceeuk @10DowningStreet Nope, there's more than the DPA required. As a member state, we use a National Security exemption to excuse away nasty things like the bulk powers in the Investigatory Powers Act. When we're no longer a member we won't be allowed to do that (if we want equivalency anyway)

@kaepora Just put N/A I've never understood why people feel the need to ask any of that. Particularly when they're aware enough to make "Prefer not to disclose" an option, but not aware enough to question whether they should bother asking at all.

@kaepora Kindle is actually a prime (heh) example of how it can go wrong. They deleted (of all things) Orwell's 1984 from people's Kindles when the licensing fell through. Apple has had some recent examples too. Streaming is convenient, but IMO is a poor choice in the long term.

@guy_herbert @AlecMuffett some existing platforms may fall out of use in favour of decentralised models that are far harder to police.

@giveupalready @AlecMuffett Yup. if @joinpeertube built a script/app where you could just provide bandwidth (with or without funky crypto) I'd totally run it. Problem with a torrent client is you have to manually add each video - rather automate and host indiscriminately
05 Jul 2018 20:13

@giveupalready @AlecMuffett So if it (or similar) were to take off, you could easily help keep things online while reducing the fragmentation of many different peertube instances on many different domains. So a few single popular aggregators could essentially replace youtube

@giveupalready @AlecMuffett Yeah seems to be in principle, I've still not got around to dropping it onto a VM and playing with it though.

@giveupalready @AlecMuffett There's already peertube - https://joinpeertube.org/en/home/ - in the works which functions much like that.

@giveupalready @AlecMuffett Yep, and that may be the ultimate outcome. Initial implementations though will likely be quite user hostile - an overabundance of caution as much as anything else - but will probably then regress to a more comfortable mean

@giveupalready @AlecMuffett Agreed. The problem of course, is that the most likely route for it to get more draconian is for these Articles to pass in Sept - at which point once users notice it'll be too late (much like the fuss about GDPR).

For anyone wondering, that's an amp wiring kit from @Halfords_uk - like this one: https://www.halfords.com/technology/car-audio/head-unit-accessories/autoleads-pc4-25-sub-amp-wiring-kit My current line of thinking is the manufacturer put a 40amp fuse in a holder that's rated for less than that.

@andrewdoull @saarw @jesperTingvall @janklausa @tha_rami Assuming it's actually a requirement, rather than "we want", then GDPR allows for that. If you're legally required, then the legal basis is Section 6(c) Compliance with a legal obligation. No right of erasure of any data you're mandated to retain there. If anything, it's easier

@saarw @jesperTingvall @andrewdoull @janklausa @tha_rami At which point those smaller companies would simply be systems providers. If they (themselves) collected or processed user data in any way then they'd be liable under GDPR, so it's far from a loophole.

@Glinner @denisoconnell63 Yeah ^ that. Seems like the logical answer to me. A No outright denies others the choice to do as they see best.

@denisoconnell63 @Glinner Sorry I don't follow your logic on voting no if you're undecided. It maintains that status quo so denies others a choice.

@SeanWrightSec @AppSecBloke @Scott_Helme @briankrebs The details are necessary for certs (as they're proof of identity - at least of a sort) and CT logs tie into validating those certs.

@SeanWrightSec @AppSecBloke @Scott_Helme It'd be easy enough to argue it was a legitimate interest which needed to be fulfilled to issue the cert I'd have thought.

@KathRella @MylesJackman @BBFC @mindgeek Unfortunately, the Gov has already taken aim at "extreme" (by their definition) porn. There's now lots of stuff that's entirely legal to do which now may not be legal to film. So much for having an open and co-operative society 3/7

@KathRella @MylesJackman @BBFC @mindgeek Yup, there's also been a lot of educational stuff helping people come to terms with their sexuality blocked.

@AlecMuffett Aye, though if they did most of us would probably be out of jobs as there wouldn't be other people's messes to tidy up :) In this case though, depending on how you define Personal Information (I don't agree with everything the GDPR defines as such) it really is a design issue

@ProfEmer @bellaswoosh @BrexitResist @jonnywoo34 @Kimmydoll49 @David_Cameron @Conservatives The problem is, there may not be many left after to choose from. What really scares me tho is the likely Tory choices when May goes. Rees-Mogg or Rudd. Like choosing between a kick in the nads and a kick in the nads. If the Tories stay in we're even more fucked than we are now

@GordWylie @MexicoRS78 @Conservatives @UKLabour The ability to do that hasn't helped much so far, and we've had to rely on the ECHR & ECJ as a safety net. If Brexit is the start and we also sort our MPs out, great, but not seeing any signs of that being the case so far. Certain MPs would be all too happy to fuck us all for £1

@GordWylie @MexicoRS78 As far as they can manage probs. As u can tell I'm not exactly a die-hard EU fan. But they do provide a safety net against the shower of shit we have in Westminister (and I don't just mean the @conservatives). Look at BT/Phorm, RIPA, DRIPA etc for just a few examples

@GordWylie @MexicoRS78 Quite possibly. If 26 states see a strong advantage but it's at the cost of the 27th, things could very quickly become very nasty. Whilst its the EU 'institution' we're dealing with, ultimately theyve got to get the deal past the majority of those 27, with each of their biases

@GordWylie @MexicoRS78 Now thats something I can agree with you on, the EU really isn't particularly interested in Ireland at all. I think there's some risk to NI/UK too, but the South almost certainly carries most of it. Potentially even another EU bailout in the making if the trade terms aren't right

@GordWylie @MexicoRS78 Also not suggesting we should just accept a "pants down and take it, you pay for the lube" type deal either. But negotiations require more than insisting you're gonna get X. We suggested transition period then changed our mind on the terms, not exactly a brilliant move

@GordWylie @MexicoRS78 It still only takes a few. I'm not for a second suggesting its _anywhere_ near as bad as it was. My point is, is it worth risking aggrating to protect Rees-moggs investments?

@MexicoRS78 Sure, the internal (to the UK) and widespread concern about the impact, raised before the referendum is an EU ploy because they're so very worried about trade. Clearly you've never been over there or read any history.

@MexicoRS78 If we don't impose tarrifs and they do, the impact is on us not them (as it'd be more expensive for the EU to buy stuff from us). If we impose tarrifs then as a net importer, it'll cost every one of us more to use the stuff we import. In this case being a net importer is bad
10 Feb 2018 18:26

@MexicoRS78 Only if _we_ impose tarrifs. If they impose tarrifs we pay to send stuff to them not the other way round. You say only they want a border and we want completely free trade. How are we going to enforce those tarrifs then? Oh, wait, we'd need that border after all.

@happychappy44 @jonnywoo34 The counter to that tho is the wage inprovement could be short-lived.

@MexicoRS78 Yes, but if they decide to levy (say) £10 per kg of beef imported into the EU, you really think we're not gonna protect ours by reciprocate. Charges are for importing not exporting, so it's them buying from us (if they're charging), not the other way round

@MylesJackman I look forward to members of @theresa_may's cabinet being amongst the data when it inevitably leaks. Which it will, and most likely quickly. Especially given MindGeek's record of being wide-open to attacks. I won't be signing up to any, will just bypass their measures.

@persotc @InfoSecHotSpot @HandNik One of my friends had a copy of it, on 5.25" disks... later reboots of it (was it the xbox it was on? I forget) really didn't have the same charm though

@kursed @InfoSecHotSpot I don't think there's any harm in @apple providing tools to help with it. But, it definitely shouldn't be a case of relying solely on AAPL for it. Aid is an apt description, it should assist, not do the whole job for you...

Goes for our lot on this side of the pond too. Not jst a Tory thing either, @ukhomeoffice have been stubbornly ignoring evidence for many years. Denying alleviation for those who are suffering in the process. It's time heads were pulled out of the sand for an adult conversation https://twitter.com/Release_drugs/status/952236300588888064

I expect @HP will probably release a statement soon saying that this is largely mitigated on their hardware. No way you could do it in 30 seconds with the time HP kit takes to POST https://thehackernews.com/2018/01/intel-amt-vulnerability.html All jokes aside. Not Good.

@KimwithpanacheG @make_trouble @realDonaldTrump Londoners might be "stuck" with Sadiq, but the rest of us Brits are not. Nothing wrong with him tho, you just need to read a news source not aimed at retarded racists. No jealousy, just a pity he isn't going to turn up and face the protesters. Cleary @readDonaldTrump is a pussy

@smurph24 @irnbru 2b fair, I don't envy their task the marketing team has been given. Someone higher up decided to use sweeteners (I guess it's really because cheaper, so improves profit) and marketing have been given the crap task of telling us it's a good thing they're making @IrnBru undrinkable

@irnbru Except now it'll have aspartame in it, which effectively means I now can't drink it (or at the most, very, very little of it). What use is a hangover cure that'll cause headaches?

@irnbru Couldn't you have just released "Lesser Irn-Bru" and let those of us who like the original pay the sugar tax for it? Too much of certain sweetners give me a headache, aspartame being one of those.
