Sounds good to me
Simple, a phone that can make/receive calls and sms that doesn't require a loin to Google, Apple or MS.
Bonus features are allowing me to do what I want with it.
Flash gets worse
As Intel makes transistors in CPUs smaller, they get more power efficient and we get more on the die and better processors.
As flash cells get smaller their ability to hold the charge that makes them a viable hard disk replacement gets worse.
Give the drives better and guaranteed life, if I want more space, I'll buy two or three drives. There's not much point in a drive that loses your data.
Yes, that'll work just as well as tax.
Thank you for the data, we just started monetising it, but by the time we paid our offshore entity for their IP used to process the data, your share is £1. Now about that personal data you have on 56m people...
Re: dont know much about them but..
There isn't enough pressure to use an absolute sensor, the BMP085 usually used to get an approximate reading is only accurate to 300hPa or about 9000M. I don't think you could rely on it and they want a mechanical fail safe in addition the several electronic ones.
Rather than a pin, put a Teflon strip between the contacts and attach the line to it, less friction.
Attach a small under inflated balloon to the pin in the fail-safe device. When the main balloon bursts and your rocket starts to plummet, the second small balloon will still have lift and pull on the pin to set off your fail safe device.
0g-Detect for freefall protection for under a tenner. There's one fitted on the Habuino HAB board.
Try port 587 which is ALT SMTP, you might be lucky with 366 too, 465 for SMTPS using SSL or TLS.
All those with their own server, just choose whatever you like and stop whining like young kids, if you can do it better set up your own mobile network!

Re: "may cost gigantic corporations a tiny fraction of their revenue."
Haven't seen many actors quitting their jobs because they loose too much cash to the, usually, young committing a _civil offence_ by disregarding copyright.

Not good enough though
So have I, but I can't see that there's enough value in what is in essence a control panel for open source swift.
Swift isn't that hard to set up and manage once you have done it a few times to get a hang of how the parts fit together.
The SwiftStack graphs are nice to look at and they make the install easy, but being as you don't get your ring builder files or know how SS have defined your storage, you could find yourself locked in by the time you have decided that the ongoing costs have mounted up a bit and your knowledge of the stack has reached a stage where you can manage it yourself. 100TB isn't that much space, but $1000 a month without support for a control panel that doesn't even email you if some thing's wrong?
Re: Freedom of the Internet? In your mind, chum
So have I, what a load of old guf you're spouting, closed networks = less money, therefore we will not see a return to AOL or CompuServe.
However, Fecalbook would certainly like to see a hybrid model of their users and other companies paying for the network, while they extract all the cash.
Oracle already bulldozed two technologies I used to use, luckily, for me I didn't pick Nimbula.
Buying in to tech developed by start-ups is like playing Russian Roulette, esp when Oracle is the Borging entity.
If you have to give a root password to a support company, change it before you give them access then immediately after too, but be sure to use a different one than you had originally before handing control to a stranger.
After their assistance, check the root account's history file to see what they have been doing, if only to help you next time the issue occurs.
Remember, it's not unusual for a root password to be recorded in your history file or a log when logging in remotely and changing user, mistyping or forgetting you just used su!
I too was almost caught up, had I not made the decision to stay in the UK...
So don't buy an over priced Verisign cert with an expiry date you cannot track.
Re: 72 cores, eh?
More likely in a Mikrotik router like the http://routerboard.com/CCR1036-12G-4S
Which is better?
It might not be better to be vmware for long, as their customers will realise that other virt platforms give away tools for free. I think that is likely to be why they're giving 7% of workers the sack.
Re: no disincentive
What makes you think prison is a disincentive?
Taxas killed 10 prisoners in 2011, 474 since 1976, if death doesn't put someone off committing a crime, why would a number of months in a warm and comfortable prison where you're guaranteed two hot meals a day?
Re: MS is feeling BLUE. MS is on DEATH ROW.
Give over with the "power" of your choice of application Spearchucker Jones, the _vast majority_ of users create simple documents, the same way they use other applications to simply browse facebook or view youtube.
In fact they probably don't need an office suite at all most of the time, 95% of my files are in text via gedit, the ones that need to leave my office are in w97-2003 doc format via Libre as everyone can read them. 30 years of documents in a few megabytes.
Microsoft stuff... just works... most of the time except: sometimes when your adding a new IP and you have to disable and re-enable the nic or when a server take 4HOURS to shut down and reboot or no apparent (or logged) reason, or when you have to apply another slew of fixes for a web server and the IIS fixes are installed first stopping the web service while the rest slowly install, reboot and continue to install or when a new server is brought up and needs ten reboots as each fix is applied in turn rather than the delta between the new install and latest update set. Sounds great doesn't it, where do I buy such powerful software?
They have a virtual monopoly, of course they (the monopoly) will it turn round.
If this is a result of Chinese stores copying the layout, the Chinese stores are obviously prior art.
Who'd a thought
MS software crashing, never heard of that before.
I suggest a 12 month beta test before the database goes live using all 650 MP's complete medical history as the test data, then we call all test the security of the system. If no data leaks we'll have an idea of the basic security of the system.
Hope there's no moisture in the relay can as it might be frozen in position when you try to fire the igniter.
Strange choice, using a transistor to switch a relay, _ALL_ modern pyro systems use mosfets to fire igniters. Igniters usually fire with <1 amp for a few 10's of millis. I have used SP8K4 dual mosfet in a small sop8 package. Make sure you don't knock the flight package when you launch, you don't want to bounce the relay contacts.
Makes sense for MS, as there won't be another version of Windows after 8, just a thin client into MS's stormy cloud.
SLA, compensation is usually limited to the charges made in any one period and if it's some special insurance backed contract, probably not covered by 'acts of god'.
It's simple, do you design for a one in one hundred year event. Usually No, if hundreds or thousands of lives at risk, yes. Deaths due to Gawker being down... 0.
Samsung says it "can write up to 1064TBW"
I hope Samsung's "up to" is better than my broadband providers "up to"
Re: Productive work
I didn't say you weren't, but most employees are paid to be productive on behalf of their employers and are not paid to decipher Microsoft's latest idea of what an Operating System should look like or the new random location of an oft used menu item.
Front page their website: The Tech City Investment Organisation was established by UKTI to support the growth of the tech cluster in East London.
"With months of use, I've learned to beat the OS into submission." As opposed to just using a familiar and easy to use OS?
I thought the Tories were supposed to be saving taxpayers money or is that only making savings on pleb level wages and lower?
If BT don't like this subsidy thing, may be they should have to pay fibre rates the same as other company. That should help create a bigger broadband development fund and persuade them to light all of the fibre they have in the ground.
> I still use "backing store" to describe cloud storage without being more specific.
Cloud storage, that'll be an HTTP/FTP server on the Internet then.
A hard drive is mass storage.
Way to go Gove, invite the problem, Microsoft, to be the solution. Back to school for you.
No point in getting all the multination mega corps in to the UK if they don't pay any corporation tax
If G are down grading links from link farms, why are they helping the farmers clean up the fields they have sown?
I like Red Hat's KVM license, one license per processor, everything included.
It is perfectly legal to resell software you have purchased in the EU.
The Govt should level the playing field by either repealing the tax on fibre in the ground or charge BT the same rate as everyone else so that they have the incentive to use what is already in the ground. There is tonnes of unlit fibre in the ground that is not being used by BT as in all reality it doesn't cost them anything to just leave it there.
Stop spouting the 3G auction crap
The 3G auction was 12 years ago and raised £35B, that's £1.85B per year. Compare that to the extra £5B a year the companies get from customers being on the wrong tariff.
Or put it another way, there are 81.6m mobile contracts in the UK, so you're paying £22.67 per year for the 3G spectrum.
Stop buying into the telco's propaganda!
Agree on the BER, but _if_ it has a suitable number, which I doubt, what is the rebuild time for an array with these in it?
It's to frighten ordinary users off open source, every time they try to install the majority of OSS apps they will get a warning. Nothing else.
MS are like a headless chicken, fruit on one side, penguins on the other with declining market share, they have lost sight of how to make things people want, they have just relied on being the de-facto OS/software house.
Nothing new or exciting from MS in years, just more give us your money releases of the same old, but wearing a different frock to fool the masses.
Another ZFS software supplier.
Re: Please could you run this past me again?
Well Voyager1 is around 35 years old, 11 billion miles away, it's still letting us know what it's like out there, so who knows?
