Don't know if KRW is experiencing this or of it's just me, but when I try to read a unread post, I get taken to a completely different post that I've already read?

hello:1

Sorry people, I can't stand ABBA or the Bee Gee's...I blame my mum for that....She drove me nuts with that genre of music.
But that said, they were all very, very talented writers and new what the world wanted at the time.

Should we let women take charge...I think that ship sailed a lond time ago.
The best leadership IMO would be both men and women working together.. A house divided will always fall... Half the problem is all the in fighting.
took note of your quote "That ship sailed a long  time  ago ", only just figured late in life I have always been lead ( often astray )  by females , bless them ,

Tech News & Reviews / British ‘Iron Man’ takes flight at TED 2017

British engineer Richard Browning has demonstrated an Iron Man-style suit at the TED 2017 conference in Vancouver, flying above a platform with the help of jet engines strapped to his arms and back.

Browning hovered in front of attendees, attached to a custom exoskeleton that features a helmet-mounted display for gauging fuel levels. He stayed close to the crowd, but told reporters that the suit was capable of reaching an altitude of a few thousand feet, and speeds of 200mph.


“I did this entirely for the same reason that you might look at a mountain and decide to climb it – for the journey and the challenge,” he told the BBC.

The Daedalus suit – named after the Greek mythological figure who escaped captivity with the help of man-made wings (his son, Icarus, was less fortunate) – is currently capable of staying airborne for ten minutes, and is reportedly attracting interest from the UK military. However, Browning, who is in the Royal Marines Reserve, insists the project is “a bit of fun”, and unlikely to be a regular mode of transportation any time soon.

A YouTube video of the Daedalus suit being tested in Browning’s home county of Wiltshire currently has over a million views. The suit has had an all-black paint job since then, and the engineer’s Gravity startup is at work of an Mk.2 prototype.

Browning’s efforts at TED 2017 were certainly impressive, although the inventor apparently had to “borrow” fuel from harboured seaplanes in Vancouver to get the suit working. 

There isn’t currently much in the way of regulation for jetpacks, with neither the Civil Aviation Authority nor the European Aviation Safety Agency having firm guidelines on the technology. One thing they probably won’t be happy about, however, is coupling a jet engine-powered exoskeleton with a 10kg pneumatic fist. I’ll just leave this here.

just to add  my thoughts
Given up on UK politics were we ever fully “united “ ?  I read so much about the North- South prosperity divide,  yes I guess London is the hot spot for money gained  off the backs  of the industrial North  ,  well  believe me it ain’t all honey& roses  for the working folk in London , it comes at a price,  hence I sold up and  moved rural for my retirement , sure slower BB  no street lighting + the village straw sucking  Doc ,  nearest cinema is 10 miles away my local shop  the co- op is in the front room of a converted house , LOL ,
Politics? What has it ever done for me ,  hence I don’t vote ,  but looking forward to the door to door party canvassers ,  could be my this years only free  entertainment ,

I believe you Roco.
People seem to suffer with...The grass is greener on the other side of the fence attiude here in GB.
Where in OZ it's the she'll be right attitude. That's not always a good thing when the piston has gone though the side of block flames are then coming out from under the bonnet while driving to work. She'll be right mate. True story! :) (Opel Engine)


All politions need the P**s taken out of them at one time or another.
I vote because then it gives me the right to moan.  lol:1

Webroot's security tools went berserk today, mislabeling key Microsoft Windows system files as malicious and temporarily removing them – knackering countless PCs in the process.

Not only were people's individual copies of the antivirus suite going haywire, but also business editions and installations run by managed service providers (MSPs), meaning companies and organizations relying on the software were hit by the cockup.

Between 1200 and 1500 MST (1800 and 2100 UTC) today, Webroot's gear labeled Windows operating system data as W32.Trojan.Gen – generic-Trojan-infected files, in other words – and moved them into quarantine, rendering affected computers unstable. Files digitally signed by Microsoft were whisked away – but, luckily, not all of them, leaving enough of the OS behind to reboot and restore the quarantined resources.

We understand that all versions of Windows were affected by today's gaffe, and that a kill switch within Webroot's systems kicked in to halt the mass quarantining before any long-lasting damage was done. Webroot boasts it has 30 million users. Its software also, weirdly, misidentified Facebook and Bloomberg's websites this week as phishing sites, blocking access to them.

For those hit by Webroot's assault on Windows files on Monday, there are official fixes suggested for those using the Home edition and Business editions of the antivirus suite.

"We understand that this is a consumer and business issue," a Webroot rep confessed in a on its support forums. "We understand that MSPs will require a different solution. We are currently working on this universal solution now."

Suffice to say, there are a wedge of furious and confused folks on the support boards, with angry IT admins reporting thousands of endpoints going nuts.

Webroot, whose slogan is "smarter cybersecurity," is working on a solution for all. The timing of the file classification blunder couldn't be worse for at least one employee. Gary Hayslip was hired earlier this month as Webroot's chief information security officer, and this can't be a fun first few weeks on the job.

The biz is also looking to hire a senior software engineer for its Windows line. Based on today's kerfuffle, they might want to consider upping the headcount a bit more in this area to ensure that customers don't get hammered in the same way again, in light of February's little snafu that also left Windows users borked.

A Webroot spokesperson told The Reg: "We know how important internet security is to our customers, and the Webroot team is dedicated to resolving the issue. We will provide updates as soon as they are available.
