I think he's just afraid of the tax claim he'll get
If he admits to having all those bitcoins.
So according to Microsoft adopting a "standard" that only renders in a closed-source, proprietary, expensive piece of software that runs only on a closed-source, proprietary and expensive operating system would decrease costs.
In what world does this make sense exactly?
Yes, a whole bitcoin trades for more than a while dogecoin. However, bitcoin is currently mostly mined by ASICs, making the difficulty so high that it is no longer profitable to mine bitcoins on a computer.
They can't. It is an old bug, fixed long back in the official client. MtGox uses a custom wallet, most likely forked long back, in which they were stupid enough not to backport the fix.
Why port? Most useful apps already run under ARM. Debian is available on ARM completely. What more do you need?
Why is that whole mess not opt-in to begin with?
What the writer of the article did not realize is that new altcoins are created regularly. So while ASICs are now being created for LTC, graphics cards will stay relevant for other altcoins. Same story like the one that happened to bitcoin. Nobody uses graphics cards for that anymore.
I don't have any scientific references, but a friend of mine holds bees in a forest. Of course, there are no insecticides there. His bees are doing very well. The organic farm where I get most of my vegetables also holds bees. They are also doing very well.
Somehow this makes me think that all those GMO-happy, spray-happy farmers and corporations complaining about a lack of bees have only themselves to blame.
This is, in my opinion, one of the greatest reasons for buying organic food. Not only is it more healthy, but you support the bees, thereby helping to avoid the enormous food shortage we'd get without bees.
The monlist command should not be publicly available in the first place. Yes, it can be disabled in the config file, which it should have been set to in the first place.
People don't read the instructions, same thing happened to veet:
As the heat from AMD reduces
So will the innovation at Intel slow down. We could all see it coming.
With a bit of work, these pigs could be a replacement for the current energy-slurping streetlights. Now that would be a big leap forward for renewable energy!
Re: Serious Question
What kind of emails are you talking about? The malware monitors whether you are logging into an exchange and then steals your credentials.
NSA is just jealous
They didn't think of it first!
For anyone missing it
Root your phone and install LBE Privagy Guard. It provides the same functionality. It also works for on older versios of Android (2.3, 4.x).
Cannot be backed up?
What the heck are you babbling about? Of course they can be backed up! You just keep an offline (i.e. printed key) somewhere safe with the bulk of your savings (the stuff you won't need regularly). The smaller amount that you need to keep available you keep in a regular wallet on your phone/computer. And yes, that can be backed up. You can protect it with a passphrase so that if the phone/computer gets stolen they cannot transfer out the bitcoins.
They want to use BULL sperm for that?
Who else can see this going wrong? I can see the headlines already where some poor women gets stoned to death for bestiality after becoming pregnant from her own medicine.
Re: What it boils down to...
Well, it supposedly deters terrorists. In the good ol' United States of the Americas the Department of Homeland Security is entrusted with the same task, they stop terrorists, therefor "pirating" copyrighted material is a terrorist action.
I am happy they are now actively stopping these dreadful terrorists in the U.K. too. I feel safer already.
Re: Glad they are getting shut down
Wish I could do that too, but nowadays to vote you need a Google Minus account "so it's easier to see opinions from people you care about".
Thankfully, I do have LBE Privacy Guard to prevent applications like this from running amok.
That's already being done actually, with water: Pumped-storage hydroelectricity.
I suppose this saves costs
As the data doesn't have to be sent to America over a separate line anymore. Smart thinking.
Nice to see the Microsoft ad campaigns getting more and more pathetic every time. Not surprising as they haven't made anything useful for a long time and it's hard to advertise if you don't have anything nice to advertise.
My suggestion is to try out LXC, which is short for Linux Containers. It's not a VM in the strictest sense of the word, but more of a glorified chroot. It is, however, pretty easy to administer and blazingly fast (practically zero overhead). If you are scared of command lines you could look into libvirt, which can manage LXC in a graphical environment (only with very limited functionality).
Compensating for something?
Apparantly even women do that nowadays.
Perhaps the criminals hacked their systems to store this info.
So get on with your nuclear fusion reactor. It has been made on a small scale, it works and no danger of meltdown. If it's so important, why is nobody funding this?
Netherlands has this since forever and it's not even specific to mobile contracts. Of course it only applies if the new terms can be negative for the customer. Lowering the prices will not allow the customer to immediately terminate the contract.
So here we have a problem we created (antibiotic-resistence). How do we propose to solve it? Use a more aggressive alternative to antibiotics.
How about we just let our immune system work and only use antibiotics in life-threatening situations. Or does that cut to deep into the pockets of Big Pharma? We can't have that, of course!
We know what this means
Just as they used the 8.04 LTS as their testing ground for Pulseaudio, so will they use 14.04 as testing ground for Mir. Brilliant!
At work we now use containers for nearly everything. For web server instances, a single container manages to handle about twice the sessions per second as it would do on a KVM instance with the same number of cores and RAM.
The overhead is so minimal that we now also run our MariaDB instances in containers and make many more, smaller database servers.
Did you forget to use the "Joke Alert" icon?
Telling people they're "on their own" after making the switch is not going to motivate them to change. Especially the computer literate ones that still believe the blue E "is the internet".
I wouldn't use it
Let them get their regular product right first before moving into other markets. Couchbase as it is now is just too unstable, crashes, refuses connections, data loss, you name it!
They should send some people to train with the NSA. That way they can allow HTTPS and still selectively block content.
I would have liked him to run the company further into the ground. Well, we can only hope the next one to take on the role will be equally clueless.
And downhill it goes
Perhaps they think they are now big enough to warrant behaving like something so different it warrants separate code to be written for it.
Personally, I don't see it happening.
Ramp up hydrogen creation
Germany already does this on a smaller scale. They create hydrogen when there is an energy surplus. This hydrogen is mixed in with the gas fed into peoples homes so they use it to cook and heat their homes.
If they just ramp it up, they can use the energy surplus created by the fossil plants for this, keeping them profitable and while they do create pollution they also help reduce the consumption of natural gas, which largely offsets this pollution.
I can tell you that we are currently phasing out our DELL EqualLogic arrays. We used to use them to handle all our database volumes, however, anything above a total of 2.5K IOPS seems to make it unbearably slow.
We bought large 15K SAS discs for all our database servers and currently only run replication servers on the SAN, so that we can quickly restore a volume should be necessary.
I honestly find it unbelievable that a single simple consumer SSD can easily handle 40K IOPS, while our SAN array (in excess of 100K quid) has trouble handling 4K IOPS.
Well, at least they're not trying to block LibreOffice. Maybe this can be a good thing and get the last three OpenOffice users to switch to LibreOffice as well.
All nice and well
But what will happen to the latency? How much time needs to pass before a smaller frame is sent out?
It is there, but only in the alphas. So starting from 10.0 this functionality is available.
Re: Single login?
I see both up- and downsides to this. The downside is as you already described, the single point of failure. The upside is that if somebody figures out your password, it is easily changed at a single place. Many people use a single password for everything and do not even remember all the sites they have an account at, leaving them vulnerable to attack.
Re: Termination of Operations?
His service was secure. Stored email was encrypted in a way that without the password it was not readable. He could not just give them the information. They asked him to build in a tap, to monitor somebody. He then shut down business before that could happen.
Because it contains no copyrighted material
And is thus not a threat to be stopped by the Department of Homeland Security.
ARM king in the datacentre?
No wonder. It's impossible to buy decent ARM-based blades. According to our supplier, they are in development. But then, they have been for over a year now. We are still buying x86 because that's available.
Can it run linux?
Can it run a full linux distribution? Then it suddenly becomes a sound buy!
Re: I love W3C
Right, that's what I used to think. Until they started their HTML5 DRM nonsense.
And that is why closed-source is a bad idea
One does not simply recompile an application to a new target platform. One has to wait for the company/person that wrote the application and hope they will do it.
Linux has a rich ecosystem on apps on every platform it runs on because most applications can be compiled easily, with little or no modification.
Didn't know that still existed. Is it being used in the wild?
