SCIENCE & TECH NEWSTechnology

Greedy computer hackers using open-source Linux machines could steal more than their fair share of bandwidth from Wi-Fi hotspots, Swiss computer scientists have warned.

At the MobiSys 2004 conference in Boston, Massachusetts on Monday, Imad Aad, of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, outlined how changing just one line of code in the Linux operating system could allow hackers to monopolise the bandwidth at hotspots using the 802.11 standard.

The Australian Industrial Relations Commission on September 7 rejected an application by three construction contractors working for ESSO to terminate agreements including 7-day-on/7-day-off rosters. The decision stops ESSO from changing the rosters to 14-days-on/14-days-off.  Read More...

Operator Short-Termism Damaging North Sea Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More...
Posted by ginamc on Tuesday, September 07, 2004 @ 04:05:30 GMT (961 reads)
ONSHORE NEWSSustained buoyant oil & gas prices are not delivering the benefits that North Sea contractors had hoped for, according to the current chair of UK supply-chain grouping Subsea UK. Tight time frames, coupled with a desire by operators to "achieve project goals at the cheapest price", is forcing the North Sea sector to make some difficult business decisions, and projects in the pipeline face possible delays, Ron Cookson warned an offshore-industry gathering in Aberdeen last week.

"From a contractor's perspective, a project in Norway or elsewhere that has a two-year lead time will be pursued aggressively ahead of a UK project that has the same anticipated offshore completion but is not going to be tendered until a year later ... meaning key assets will be drawn away from the UK sector," he said.

Health Alerts: Polio In Nigeria Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF

GENERAL NEWS

The World Health Organisation is urging all travellers to Nigeria to be fully up-to-date with vaccinations against poliomyelitis, to counter the current high risk of infection for visitors to the northern part of the country.

Although there are plans to renew polio immunisation campaigns in this area in July this year, the wild poliovirus has been spread from northern Nigeria to ten previously polio-free countries across Africa since polio immunisation activities were suspended in Nigeria late last year.

Any individuals intending to travel to Nigeria should have completed a full course of polio vaccination, as recommended by their national governments.

The poliovirus is now endemic in only six countries, down from 125 in 1988: these are Nigeria, India, Pakistan, Niger, Afghanistan and Egypt.

Fans of table football, or foosball, will no longer have to hang around at the pub waiting for a friend to turn up before they can play. A robotic foosball table will be able to give them just as good a game.

Foosball is a table-based game in which players twist, push and pull rotating metal rods attached to figures representing soccer players. The idea is to use the model players to kick a ball into the opponent's goal.

ONSHORE NEWSJon Robertson

Jon Robertson, who joined Seaeye Marine as a special project engineer in 1998 and was later promoted to Engineering Manager, has now accepted the position of Engineering Director on the Seaeye Board of Directors.

Following his successful project management of the Seaeye Falcon and the introduction of the Seaeye Cougar last year, his new priorities are firmly focussed on Seaeye's next generation of increasingly capable and deeper rated electric powered ROVs.

"The challenge is to increase Seaeye's technical lead in a growing market for lighter vehicles with greater capability of doing useful work at depth, or doing more with less" says Jon in describing his new role.
