      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

  1. Quick note, I use Virgin Media and it does not block SpywareInfo Forum.
  2. It shows attack type, origin, target, ports, IPs etc. all in real time on a world map. Absolutely fascinating. Unsurprisingly, China comes out top by far as the originator of attacks. Norse - IPViking Live

  4. Postscript: was chatting to the above-mentioned ex on the phone today and mentioned this topic and the Ylvis 'song'. She knew the song and the video, her comment; 'yes, and to think, we used to be Vikings!'
  5. I rest my case!
  6. No, not at all, I had a Norwegian girlfriend, and as far as I can work out you are all crazy. Certainly she was, and her whole family, but in a good way if you know what I mean! Here on the south coast of England it is sunny and mild, but still with a spring sharpness to the air. It's a nice day but then hey, I'm British, if it's not grey, overcast and drizzling miserable rain it's a nice day. Extreme weather events like tornadoes are rare here, and usually short-lived but do cause damage and the occasional death. As a kid on holiday in a static caravan park one hit the park at night, turned a few vans onto their sides or roofs. Ours felt more like being in a boat at sea for a while. I don't remember being scared, I thought it was cool. That was the 'sixties but it's still tornado alley: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1372581/Unlucky-Selsey-struck-by-second-tornado-in-two-years.html As I say, nothing like those massive monsters that sweep across the plains of the US. The 'Great Storm' (actually an extra-tropical cyclone) of 1987 caused a massive amount of damage and some deaths: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Storm_of_1987 but that was very rare.
  7. http://www.wired.com/2014/04/eu-net-neutrality/ The text adopted today introduces comprehensive measures preserving the open internet by providing a clear and binding definition of network neutrality, the organization says. It also provides safeguards against different forms of network discrimination by prohibiting the blocking or throttling of content and services, while also preventing anti-competitive commercial agreements. The adopted provisions ensure that traffic management measures are conducted only when necessary, proportionate, temporary, targeted, transparent and in accordance with the law. One up for the EU. Glad to see the back of roaming fees, I'm not sure if there's a US equivalent but for example, travelling in Europe you could change networks several times in one country, not just from country to country, and be charged each time. For comparison this happened to me in Sicily, (the little triangle at the bottom of Italy). http://mapfight.appspot.com/it-vs-us/italy-united-states-size-comparison
