As far as I am aware there are no TITAN GTX 1080 (Pascal) cards out yet - did this mean the GTX 980 Titan (Maxwell?)
Having read the BBC article linked to above, it appears that the "unmask" bit actually refers to the lead-up to the original claims in April/May (apparently part of a business plan/strategy for his backers/associates), rather than any new actions arising since then.
I thought that Craig Wright had claimed to be Nakamoto already, so surely there is no need to unmask him....?
If it is not him (as most suspected) then it is an admission that he was making it up previously, which would not help his credibility in his latest venture.
The original comment said (in an ironic manner..) Dup, not de-Dup.
Unless I am mistaken, the key one is that you can run x86 code on it, whereas Pascal etc. will need you to code against NVidia's CUDA API (or have something else in the middle to do it for you).
Well you still missed 2...;-)
Ah yes - a blamestorming meeting!
I imagine that it will be caught up in the terminology and so difficult to prove/disprove.
In my humble, alleged opinion:
* Oracle probably count their OMCS (Oracle Managed Cloud Services) revenue as "cloud" too when it is NOT cloud but traditional hosting/virtualisation
* Cloud incentivisation of the sales teams (i.e. bonus multipliers for anything "Cloud") will also probably lead to fuzzing of the classification of sales as "Cloud" when in fact it may be less clearcut. For example a hybrid on-premise and cloud deal might be recorded as all-cloud by Sales in order to hit their target/bonus level - regardless of the actual mix sold.
* Some Oracle Cloud offerings have a period of lock-in or a fixed term (rather than just being fully-flexible and month-to-month), which could mean that the full revenue stream might have been recognised up-front, rather than spread over the contractual period/schedule. (Bear in mind that many of the applications offered require a non-trivial amount of technical and functional work from the end-user organisation to migrate on or off)
May I just say - what an omnishambles...
One arm of Government afraid to talk to another, so both spending money on the same thing. Great.
Nice idea, but ironically they will already have prior art on this.......
Maybe they are going back to fizzion power?
Well while we are being pedantic, what about the shading/highlights on the cable insulation on the left and right-hand sides...?
That's OK - I haven't changed the password now ;-)
(@ A. Bee Have an upvote from me too. Thread makes less sense for future readers now as I deleted the duplicate before I saw your post...... Sorry)
No idea how I managed to post twice - might have been using the back button to add a post icon.
"While people's passwords can and should change routinely"
Well that's not what GCHQ said today...;-)
Neither a new company number nor new directors are required - a company can trade under any name it likes (within reason and avoiding other trademarks).
A company can also change its name at Companies House if it likes too - subject to agreement from the directors and shareholders passing the appropriate resolution(s). This also does not need any change of company number or directors.
The name is still complete bollocks though.
I wonder if they considered using the song "We built this city" by Starship...? That would be a double-bingo....
As a current LiveDrive customer - can I ask whether Dropbox does deduplication and lets you do file versioning?
I have added Azure Blob storage too as a backup target for my QNAP NAS recently (approx. £5/month for 350GB) which gives availability options too (at a higher price) - pleased with it so far.
I have used LiveDrive for years (as part of a more diverse personal backup strategy) and renewed last month for approx. £50 (£4/month-ish). I don't think I would use them for business back-up though as their support and SLA are at the cheap end of things (fair enough for what I pay them....)
I haven't had any notice of changes from them, and the charges look the same on their website.
Giving the benefit of the doubt, I wonder if this is because of problems that they have had with resellers overselling the service in some cases (rather than a land-grab by LiveDrive)? It looks like resellers get 5TB initially to pool over their user base, so if resellers are selling that as "unlimited" then maybe that's where the charging problem has come from.
It is pretty tough on resellers if a huge price increase has been imposed on them, but I imagine that contractually there will be get-outs (for the reseller) since they would have no control over their upstream provider (in this case LiveDrive) pulling the plug/going bust/increasing charges in a way that does not suit their reselling model etc.
It's also tough on the end-users too, but - as long as there is notice and some kind of pro-rata refund available - you can at least get your data back (may take a while if you have several TB stored.....) and move elsewhere before the new charges kick in. As others have said - you should not have something like this as your sole backup target.
Maybe I've misunderstood, but aren't you advocating carrying another device in addition to your phone in order to manage passwords?
Pretty secure as you have outlined it, but prone to failure (in the sense that there are now more devices - and not just passwords - to forget/lose etc....)
"bread out" most backdoors by now"
Luckily for you or you'd be toast
"Ime Archibong" - Is this a distant, but more senior relation to the Reg's esteemed correspondent Steve Bong???
Email and screenshots sent.
I get the same result on IE11 and Edge
I don't think it's a technical/compatibility issue to be honest.
The grid on which the main news items is based does not align with the Newsbites items (probably due to the smaller font that Newsbites uses?) so you get a column of story snippets in a small font on the left that looks misaligned with all of the story snippets on the right in a bigger font...
I know, suddenly everyone is a web design expert, but this just jars with me because of the uniform grid layout for the front page.
Can I switch them off as they mess up the front page layout....?
So do you have to have a Facebook account in order to use the Oculus device at all, or is this just for Facebook content interaction?
The proposed orbit is pretty big, so maybe your neighbour's bathroom ceiling might be better?
Could this explain the Milankovitch cycles in any way (i.e. when the Earth and this planets' orbits are in the right orientation and hence resonance every n*20000 years-ish) or should I get a bigger tin-foil hat?
Absolutely - even some of Oracle's own products have needed to use old JRE/JDK versions on both client (and server) sides.
Is it me or is that Gaffer tape over some connector ports on the loud end of the booster at approx. 02:00 in the video.....?
You can tell it's space-grade as it's silver and hence "spacey".
Yes - hubris means overweaning pride and arrogance.
This is more like "pietas"?
..and too often "disruption" equates to ignoring the law (whether IP/commercial/statute) rather than a genuinely innovative offering for consumers
Depends on your interests. It's cheaper than a Premier League/Division football game. You can choose to avoid both and save the money.
One man's fish is another's poisson....
No secondary provision.?
Soon to be rebranded "HindSight UK"...
A great book indeed - and includes a car stereo that turns every cassette tape into Bohemian Rhapsody ("Is this the real life - no it's just Battersea").
A bit like the Waif-o-matic (TM) that every f@cking TV advert is using at the moment to get some 80s/90s classic songs to sound like they have been sung by the same insipid waify-girly singer.
Aaah that's better - glad I got it off my chest.
300 baud? Luxury!
When I started we just shouted 1s and 0s down the phone line to each other.
If someone replied "Pieces of 7" you knew it was a parroty error.
I imagine that in a Martian scenario they would have to keep their pressure suits since pilots have to get in and out of it under unpressurised conditions.
Well to judge your request properly we need to know if you are male or female, Mr/Ms. Other - if that's your real name.......
Unfortunately that won't work for me since after entering my postcode:
"Dominic Raab MP has told us not to deliver any messages from the constituents of Esher and Walton. Instead you can try looking them up on the Parliament website. There you will get a phone number, a postal address, and for some MPs a website or way to contact them by email."
Great.... and not for the first time with Mr. Raab
“Convergence is actually following a reverse trend.”
WTF... - does that sentence actually mean "divergence"....?
In the same vein, whilst not fanless or completely silent, the All-in-One solutions (e.g. Corsair H55 - approx. £60) are pretty quiet - especially if you only need the CPU-supplied graphics, and use the fan-tuning software that ships with the motherboard (e.g. Asus).
Is it just me or does the picture shown look a bit "enhanced" via the clone tool....?
Maybe it's just the downsampling to JPEG from a screengrab that makes it looks fuzzy though.
"not covering for anyone else’s work"
I can see how the rest of the items could be covered under work-to-rule, but how can you refuse to cover for someone else's work in an infrastructure role?
By its nature you would have >1 person assigned to individual environments/systems, and you would pick up helpdesk tickets as they came in. I can see that you might have reduced capacity if someone was absent, but you can't refuse to cover their work as it's not just "theirs".
Other ways too:
* directors' loans are taxable if not repaid at the end of the company financial year
*or assuming he is a shareholder too (not unreasonable in this case) then dividends, capital distribution on winding up.
> Now, how any times did you have a debit/credit that expires and then when the new one comes the PIN is the same as the old one? I find that spooky.
Might be missing the point here, but if it's got the same card number then isn't that expected (since the stored hash will be cryptographically based on the long card number and the PIN plus maybe some other salting)?
The naked PIN itself will be unknown to the issuer since otherwise that breaks everything.
...but loss leaders are not in themselves illegal nor do they necessarily indicate an illegal abuse of market position or competition law.
They will ultimately benefit the competitor with the deeper pockets, which generally means that the smaller guys are hosed if the big boys move in on their territory.
Note that I am not saying that this is a good thing......
..and the "pick" command too...
