If one can code, one can code.
The language/syntax is just an abstraction.
however, you are much more succinct... you replied while I typed. Serves me right for trying to be smart and using more words than what were necessary :-) Have an up!
Would not notice.
Am I all alone in believing that a fast, responsive and reliable website is only realisable when all dependencies are on the same server/cluster? (OK, social media/YouTube etc aside).
How can anyone using a third party service guarantee any kind of up time/latency/page loading times etc. to a client?
Responding "My provider said it would,work/would be quick.", when a client asks "Why is this not working properly?" is laughable.
.."but i'm pretty sure it will come together over the next year or so."
Whilst the client base is used as beta testers.
leaving broke Genesis, They survived the departure of Peter Gabriel. But when Hackett left, Genesis became more pop orientated. Even so "Home by the sea", "Duchess" and "Your own special way" remain my favourite post Hackett tracks and stand by themselves.
I have much respect for Phil Collins' drumming skills. And I reckon anyone who has tried to play any instrument and who has also listened to Genesis from the early days would agree.
I look forward to hearing what he comes out with, he has the recognition to pull some great musicians into this project. I just hope he remembers his roots and does not make pop songs.
As someone else mentioned... He comes from a time when musicians could play an instrument and the stage performance of a live act was almost indistinguishable from the studio recording.
It might be hard to hit a kangaroo at less than 30 mph
That statement depends on congruence (All parties agree what is wrong). And as we are all different, we have much to fear from those who would have us consume, conform and obey.
not like this is the first independent review to be ignored.
Perhaps they should have sponsored their own, after all they know best, I prefer my propaganda to come from a previously verified source.
Remember that every time a politician speaks,
a fairy the truth dies.
Kids will always seek the forbidden. (some dude wrote something about it once, involving a snake I think). Look up on how that ended.
Only when adults get involved in a child discovering their sexuality does it become threatening to the child.
Some porn goes way beyond what I would like my child to see. But people do these things. It's a fine line choosing how much reality and ideology one teaches/indoctrinates/conditions into a child.... And how the ratio should change over the years.
Children have to grow into, integrate into and know how to react in a world made up of many characters.
The days of playing with Lego at 14 are over. And I think we underestimate the resilience of our children. Not from physical abuse. No, that always damages. But from the bullshit and insensitivity to another's feelings so often available as a cheap image/download.
One only has to trust someone to have ones mind swayed. Generate trust in your children.
Basically Mr Cameron you are an employee, Look after your own children, don't you dare tell me how to look after mine. And, don't you dare employ legislature that restricts how I raise and educate my children.
It will work to some extent. Even if only from the spillover of retired legacy systems and blind customer loyalty. MS have a huge share in the desktop market from which we seem to be rapidly transitioning.
Perhaps Win 10 is 2-4 years too late?
I thought I was dealing with IT professionals, I thought it was obvious sarcasm.
I really thought the roflmfao at the end would give the game away.
Have an up vote and I will try to remember to be less subtle in the future.
Xboxen(hardware revision number)=Xboxen(hardware revision number)
It's not like there are thousands or indeed millions of every so slightly different computers to update. Any of which, may have components from manufacturers that don't entirely follow industry standards.
No, this is a console with rigid control over the BOM and thus the hardware inside each revision of the device. So, it should be a completely sucessful and flawless update.
Unless the geometry of spacetime changes beyond our visible horizon.
If not, the evidence will be as most evidence that we have detected and be in the form of vector fields. Fields which will be diluted the intensity weakening in accordance with the divergence of a vector field at a rate inversely proportional to the square of the distance to the source.
A scalar field like the Higgs field has been a constant throughout spacetime since a few nanoseconds after the theorised big bang. (Theorised based on best current knowledge. I go with this). So any future elsewhere boffins could play with that, amongst other things. Less evidence also means more philosophy...... And god forbid more religion too!
an array of boxed cats is to just big.
are caring everyday....
I am an old man hoping MS die before I do.... I supported Windows from 3.1 to XP. Hence the bitter taste and anger that still lingers, I have a long memory. I still use Win7 on one machine and I am very happy with it. Its good for games and the one graphics package I use that will not run under Wine.
Perhaps you are right Alain. I get a case number then hear nothing.
around the houses....
Let them install the remote control app on a VM. (usually ammyy remote)
Record actions via screen capture.
Let them tell you that vital windows services are Trojans.
Ask them how one can remove the Viruses/Trojans
Wait for punchline... Usually a click here to buy support link on a tech support site.

Tell caller what you have just done.
"Oh fuck" was the last response from that last ass hole that tried this.
It does take 30-45 minutes of your time, especially if one acts dumb. But these c***s need to be stopped. The more complaints raised, the more likely the police will act.
The Mooon, a cool place for a data center.
Love me forever, or not at all,
End of our tether, backs to the wall,
Give me your hand,
Don't you ever ask why,
Promise me nothing, live 'till we die,
Live all stays the same,
Everyone guilty, no one to blame,
Every way out,
Brings you back to the start,
To break somebody's heart,
We are the system, we are the law,
We are corruption, worm in the core,
One of another, laugh 'til you cry,
Faith unto death or knife in the eye.
Love me or leave me, tell me no lies,
Ask me no questions, send me no spies,
You know love's a thief,
Steal your heart in the night,
Slip through your fingers,
You best hold on tight.

These atheists have some compelling arguments dad, are you sure you exist?
Hold on a minute dad, just let me finish this level.
but they wouldn't employ me because I would do what I feel is right... Not what they and what the companies they may have shares in want.
It's not instant.... The photons travel at light speed. And as light speed is finite, it leads to the wonderful world of spacetime. Minkowski got the handle on this from expanding on Einstein's theories of special relativity and incorporating the theories of Lorentz. ie: mines bigger than yours but only in a different frame of reference. ;-)
Quantum interference happens all the time, a measurement which collapses the wave packet of an entangled photon does not have to be made by humans. Why do we think we are so special? Trees do fall over in the forest when no one is watching.
David Deutsch's theories are interesting too.
I am not so smart my mind is open and I love this stuff. I just wonder how much of this quantum computing and teleportation is our Universe and many other Universes jointly conspiring to take us for a ride. When the real answer lies in a bottle of Shiraz.
That hackers in an alternate Universe are sniffing the "teleported" data and building a profile which they will sell to advertisers?
from the command line.
The more pretty GUI's and layers of abstraction from what is really going on with the underlying OS means that one can employ those who have been taught how to pass an exam to administer ones infrastructure for a nominal fee. Experience is not cheap and one has to cut costs.
This does present a much broader attack surface to those that wish to own your ass though. And when your ass is owned, those cheap administrators one has hired prove to be no use at all.
Same here.... Such action should be lauded not punished.
Before the down votes start.... Read MS EULA on all OS and application software and tell me that they give a fuck about your rights.
Thank you for making me smile.
"Pretty soon we'll get to the place that real computers and real humans are no longer necessary for the proper functioning of this planet."
They never have been, the planet has functioned perfectly for around 4.5 billion years. The planet did shoot itself in the foot though... It allowed humans to evolve.
Defending one company's bad practice by stating others do the same is a hollow argument.
I use a mobile running Cyanogen, privacy guard active. It never connects to Google unless I allow it to. Most of Google servers and services are in the hosts file on the phone, same with MS servers and services. Apple has absolutely nothing I want so I don't go anywhere near them.
Hadn't you noticed that many of the readers here are IT professionals or have at least some clue and are able to exercise control over the hardware/software they use?
No I didn't down vote you.
consumers will consume the final release. I presume that Win 10 Mobile is as much spy-ware as desktop Win 10. Enjoy being the property of MS.
call a ban on promoting half thought out, emotive responses to what may or may not happen. I would also like to promote a ban on... "I have never considered your point but it doesn't make me wrong simply because I have thought about my stance with an closed and indoctrinated mind"
Fuck you all.... those that expect the world to meet your expectations... You want progress or stagnation? Change hurts and we as a species need change to progress... Grasp a fucking clue!
what is unethical?
it rattled when I shook it
They want a player/grifter and not an IT professional?
For me, its always short term, things move too quick for long term future proofing.
Don't go proprietary, avoid lock in. Use industry standard hardware and open source software, move along with progress as that progress becomes ratified and stable. Have a clue about what one is doing and wishes to achieve. Evolve your systems and keep it simple, use the command line and avoid the layers of separation from the underlying system written by third parties that allow a five year old to administer a server or a database. Did I say avoid lock in?
I bought a 386SX once to replace my Epson PCe. I am still using it although it has evolved a bit over the years. To be honest nothing of the original remains. I didn't realise how future proof it was when I bought it.
if the accused is cleared and proved innocent then the accusations are either false, erroneous, wrong or malicious. (immoral and expensive lawyers aside)
Being a victim of rape is nothing to be ashamed of, being a convicted rapist is. An accused rapist is on some strange middle ground where many will think... no smoke without fire. Simply being accused of rape can seriously fuck up ones life.
"As a complainant in a rape case she is entitled to automatic lifetime anonymity under law, which remains in place despite the not guilty verdicts"
So a potentially lying victim who concocted a story out of malice is protected from exposure whilst the accused is deemed a sex offender before a trail has even taken place.
If it can be proved that the victim is lying, either to protect their image or as malicious intent to the accused, then they should face a trial for perverting the course of justice. And it should be made just as public as the initial arrest and naming of the accused.
Whilst rape is seen as a particularly heinous crime, it seems false accusations are not seen in such a light. It's about time they were.
I don't tell Google docs anything, never will. Oh I do tell Google to fuck off, but it is under my breath and they never hear me, just like they never see any of my communications (apart from the odd search query tied to my IP address). The Internet works without Google and works a lot better when all Google ad and tracking services are blocked at the router.
They have a damn good search facility and Google maps can be useful. Yet there are very good alternatives. No one *NEEDS* Google. They have just managed to convince the ill-advised and lay person that Google ARE the Internet.
What are you so upset for? You're not exactly easy to wipe off you know.
The known data one places on Azure and the unknown data Microsoft takes from the device
Nope its to be avoided.
I said windows 10 would be a train crash... How did I know? 20+ years experience of supporting Microsoft's broken products.. And this shit was so rushed. Can't tell kids anything these days, they know it all.
Windows 7 is/was the pinnacle of Microsoft OS after SP1. Prior to that it was Horace goes skiing.
Games are the only reason I run Windows 7.... I am such a sad git, still gaming since '83. wish I had a life :-)
That used to mean something... When was he educated?
When the British education system actually taught its pupils or when the British education system taught one how to pass an exam?
"in an attempt to hasten the removal of such content across the globe."
Nope just stops it being indexed and forces it further underground.
Here comes controversy...
I myself do not understand how an adult can be sexually aroused at images of naked children, let alone images of children being abused. Unfortunately there are those that do get aroused at such images. Simple images of naked children are generally harmless to the child. Images of children being abused are something else entirely. Sexual abuse of a child causes long term psychological damage to the child's understanding of love and sexual relationships. And indeed serious problems with the formation of relationships which often last into late adulthood.
I do not have a problem with a paedophile masturbating to images of naked children, perhaps this release will stop some physical abuse, perhaps it will exacerbate the problem and cause those with such desires to go on to commit abuse of children. Although not everyone seeking a high goes on to the next level, else everyone that had a pint or a spliff would be an alcoholic or a heroin addict. I do have a very serious issue with an adult physically abusing a child for sexual gratification and believe they should be kept away from children.
The view of society is to vilify those that do get aroused by images naked children. It is certainly right to vilify those that get off on images of child abuse or perhaps even treat them, I see it as a total lack of empathy and a mental illness.
I thought long and hard before I posted this because I expect outrage at what some of what I have written. Before all the down votes flood in I wish to state that I speak from experience not as a paedophile but as a victim.
Cant find an icon suitable, beginning to get depressed now, I should fuck off shut up and think of something else.
