The SA80 is probably one of the most redesigned pieces of military equipment still in use (over 100 modifications to the original design), reason being, soldiers have found it jams in just about any situation, too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, too dusty. any thing outside of lab conditions really.

in the original GPS there was a hashing algorithm that prevented anyone without US military hardware from getting a reading more precise than a couple of hundred meters.

Again, you're simply stating things without actually pointing out what relevance they have. It seems every time there is any kind of discussion involving the military or MOD you come in and state some random trivia about a gun or something acting like it carries some weight in the argument. Maybe I'm being pedantic, but it's relaly getting on my nerves, if you want to make a point, make sure it has SOME kind of relevance!

That would be strange if that happend
and it did all the things that it does on uplink.
but it would also be strange if a new company called arunmor set up a secure internet system called AWAN.

And it would be very unusual if two weeks passed without some annoying little git bumping a topic that is very old, not very interesting and long forgotten just to say some random shit that doesn't advance it from where it was before.

What's that got to do with it?!

It's the fact that it was last added to in MAY. Now is the end of July, if it had somehow escaped your notice..

I guess he was simply browsing the forum and viewing the old topics, and then something caught his eye, so he began reading it (and 6 pages is a rather long read), and by the time he finished reading it, he forgot that it was an old and forgotten thread, and since he had something to say about the subject, he jsut replied.

It almost (ALMOST) happend to me several times.

I doubt it, since he goes to school/college with some of the other wankers in the Blackhat thread, unless they *all* work there.

And if Mcafee employs people like that, I'm switching to Norton :P

Norton > Mcafee

AVG > Norton

AVG = Free
Norton = roughly $50 a year.

It's funny, almost everytime I had a virus, AVG detected it and took care of cleaning it for me. When, at the same time, Norton auto protect sat dormant, not even detecting any kind of virus activity.
