3 Big data security analytics techniques

Here at The Register had no idea that we had so many God fearing folk among our readers. In response to the story we ran earlier about BTCellnet installing a transmitter inside a church (see story) we have been informed that at least two churches in Scotland have mobile phone base stations installed in their spires. And, as one emailer reassured us: "We have managed to resist the thin end of the wedge and being driven in any further!" "I wonder what the local councillor, Peter Burt, thinks about allowing in other "outside influences" such as electricity and amplification systems, maybe even a cordless microphone -- using radio communication?" he questioned. Another church-going techie pointed out that the vicar in question may have another problem. "The space in the Spire may not be his to sell, it may well belong to the church estates commission, who already have national deals with mobile phone networks. Lots of churches have cell sites in them." We are staggered by the religious knowledge pouring out of our readers regarding this story. All we can say is that if anyone can shed light on turning water into wine, please get in touch. ®
