You are missing the point: older versions OpenSSL will happily accept the export RSA when it didn't ask for it.

And so does Windows 8... Why do people make negative assumptions about software they don't use?
Usually, talking about cable, the potential bandwidth is larger than the bandwidth provisioned to your account. The bandwidth for these free wifi hotspots are usually provisioned separately from the bandwidth of your account.
So apart from potential increased congestion in the local area, or signal problems degrading the available total bandwidth, these free hotspots do not have any impact on the bandwidth of the subscriber.
No, according to https://twitter.com/020centrum/status/538643078157193216 he was a custodian or maintenance tech (the word used is "beheerder", which translates to administrator but in the context it is probably maintenance tech, or maybe a street-supervisor/custodian).
The twitter link (https://twitter.com/020centrum/status/538643078157193216) referenced in the article says he was a "beheerder" (custodian, maintenance technician?). So it likely happened when he was working on removing the scooter (moped) or servicing the loo itself.
The ECHR describes a minimum set of rights assigned to all. Countries can have (and do have) laws that assign more rights to their citizens. Your claim that ECHR would cancel out broader and more inclusive rights is bullshit. More likely UK politicians used it as an excuse to remove rights.
You can configure it to update automatically (I believe that is even the default).
From the linked article "The encrypted passwords were salted hashes"
That wasn't really my point. My point was that the authors seem to imply that MVCC is only now possible because of the switch from disk to memory, something which is clearly untrue.
" Row-versioning and time-stamping is used rather than page locks to ensure ACID compliance, now a feasible technique as each row is stored in memory rather than disk."
Yeah, and that is why for example Firebird (and its predecessor Interbase and earlier) have had MVCC/row-versioning since the 1980s...
Then just hit the "charm" in the lower left corner (I believe, could be the upper left).
Windows 8 didn't dump the desktop; I have it in front of me right now. Yes, it is bothersome to have to press Windows+D or click on the desktop tile, but except for this and the missing start button it works exactly like before.
So saying that Microsoft dumped the desktop is an exaggeration.
I don't see why the plastic should be a problem or be considered a negative point. My Xperia X10 has a plastic backside and after 2+ years it still looks good, no scratches or other signs of wear and tear.
Now if I would buy a Sony again is a totally different question though... Their handling of upgrades for the X10 was annoying to say the least, and the 'eye-candy' is mostly useless IMHO.
Depending on the cities, there is usually no paper bin, instead a recycling company does a weekly round to pick-up paper. You just leave it boxed or bagged by the side of the road (some cities do provide a paper wheelie bin if you have a lot of paper or don't like boxing or bagging).
With regard to the council tax: you usually do get one bill (eg single or multiple household waste processing, council tax based on the value of your house etc).
Maybe my sense of the English language is flawed, but where do I uses 'childish namecalling'? I state that [I think] "Matt Assay knows nothing" and qualify that further. Nowhere do I call him names in my opinion.
I think this article clearly illustrates that Matt Assay actually knows nothing about software development, databases and actual usages. In the real world, relational databases are still the norm and NoSQL solutions are virtually non-existent.
People running around in the VC world or hipster communities may think otherwise (as indicated by this article), but those are the facts. For most data storage problems in software development relational databases are just fine and usually a hell of a lot more trustworthy and future-proof than NoSQL solutions.
You know: not everyone here is a native speaker. In some countries, America is spelled 'Amerika'... maybe you should get off your high horse.
You can do that with the proper java.policy file, but it is really a pain in the ass to configure correctly.
The problem for most companies to switch from Java 6 to Java 7 has nothing to do with changes in the language, but mostly with having a new version itself. I am not aware of any language change that is not backward compatible (as in code written for Java 6 will still work in Java 7).
Most of the problems are with resistance to change or lack of corporate reasons to change, and platforms that only (formally) support running on Java 6. Also for some reason companies are a lot less weary of updating point release than updating to major release. Add to that the lack of exciting new features in Java 7 (with the exception of try-with-resources), and there is no real good reason to spend time and effort to switch.
All-in-all Java 7 was a disappointment, and now it looks some of the exciting things which mere delayed to Java 8 will be delayed to Java 9....
It was done in 1995 on the Delft University of Technology, faculty of electrical engineering: http://web.archive.org/web/20080119060815/http://www.etv.tudelft.nl/vereeniging/archief/lustrum/90/english.html
They are talking about "Protector" the book by Larry Niven and related (short) stories in the 'Known Space'-series.
ESA is not part of the EU (although the EU is a member of ESA). So this has nothing to do with 'EU bureaucracy'.
The guy lived in Canada, he was only in Iran to visit his sick father. Even then: is writing a tool to upload pictures, which is subsequently used by others to upload porn really a good reason to imprison let alone execute someone? (IMHO there is never a good reason to execute someone).
Lets execute Vint Cerf for creating TCP/IP as it is used for transferring 'orrible things around the world (and not to forget: IP infringment), and lets not forget Tim Berners-Lee for creating that abomination called the World Wide Web! Put them to death for all atrocities other people committed with their inventions/products!
As far as I know there are two models of train ticket machines in The Netherlands, one type does not accept creditcards, only debit cards, the other type does accept creditcards. The machines only taking debit cards are more widely available. This is largely not a problem as people in NL are more likely to use a debit card than a credit card (only a minority has a credit card here).
Brein is an organisation funded by the (Dutch) Entertainment Industry, not by the Dutch Government
The whole idea behind the project is:
1) fund research into relevant technology and sciences,
2) get money out of spin-off products and patents,
3) invest that again in more research,
Do that until there is both 1) the technology for intersteallar flight and 2) the money to build a ship.
I believe something similar was proposed in several classic science fiction books.
I might not see its flight, but I want to invest! Where can I apply?
It is a survey under students that used the University's health service. Maybe there is a correlation between 1) slutty behavior, 2) non-use of condoms, 3) contraction of STDs and 4) contacting the university health service as oppossed to people not needing health services at all or contacting their GP instead?
I remember Tom Clancy mentioning adaptive optics in the context of astronomy and laserweapon research in his novel The Cardinal of the Kremlin from 1988. In that novel both the US and the Soviets attempt to build an anti-ICBM laser and the US side uses adaptive optics to solve the problem of dispersion. The book even mentions that this is the same solution used in astronomy to prevent twinkling.
I can't believe it took 23 years for this to trickle down into actual weapons research (especially not because Tom Clancy sometimes uses scientists and military sources for inspiration).
As a tester, I guess they focussed to much on testing factory images (ie re-imaging the device everytime with the newest test version), and that they did not perform sufficient testing with various upgrade scenarios (or if they did: they did not test sufficiently after upgrading the device).
Don't forgo the lettuce, it is crucial to the taste sensation of a kapsalon. BTW: if you want something it a bit more spicy: include sambal sauce as well.
Also some kebap shops also include (red) onion, tomato and a variety of other vegetables.
Earlier this year I did some BI using Pentaho BI, worked perfectly for me and the fact that part of it can be done using point-and-click construction of the dataflow makes it relatively easy (although it still requires some knowledge of your datasources and basic programming concepts).
Just use ipconfig /flushdns ...
If you sync with Facebook, of course your phonebook gets sent to Facebook as well, not just info pulled from facebook. It isn't called sync for nothing. On Android when you first enter your account details, it explicitly asks if you want to sync everyone, or just the people you already friended. You also have the option to say it shouldn't sync. This is not rocket science people.
Also anyone who installs an app that ask permission to look into your contact list should know it is bound to use that info in some way. Buyer (or downloader) beware I'd say.
BTW: I did remove the synced contacts from facebook, but just because I think having it in one place (as in Google) is sufficient.
LOFAR has a larger area, see http://www.lofar.org/ and http://www.astron.nl/~heald/lofarStatusMap.html
Why people even watch some of the drivel coming out today (and clearly, I am one of them)...
Presumption of innocence only applies to penal law, not to civil law or dealings between civil entities (as this is purely a case between a committee of some computer chess org and the programmer).
My Netgear WNDR3700 router has IPv6 support since a firmware upgrade a few months ago, for me it uses a 6 to 4 tunnel because my ISP doesn't support IPv6 yet, but other than that it works fine.
The problem wasn't about bandwidth hogging. Last month a recording of an investor meeting leaked, were KPN announced that they would be charging their customers for use of applications like Whatsapp, and that they used DPI to find out what applications their customers were using. Their primary motivator was that they are losing SMS revenue as people start moving to text messaging using Ping, Whatsapp, Skype etc.
Most people feel that they pay for mobile internet, so they should be able to consume all available internet services without being charged for that use by their ISP(!) who is not actually involved with providing the service, but with moving the data packets from my phone towards the internet (and through the internet to the actual serviceprovider). To aggrevate the matter, the fact that KPN (and vodafone!) snooped on customer traffic to see 1) what they are doing and 2) if they can block or charge for the service wasn't well received. This led to a general outcry of the public and an offensive by Dutch IT professionals, nerds and privacy activists to get net neutrality into law.
You are aware that you can enable concurrent use of Excelsheets? Its conflict resolution can be slight clunky, but it does work well enough if people sharing the excelsheet don't work on exactly the same cell.
Exactly how is this news? Statistical analysis and pattern matching to derive content or crack encryption has been in the standard toolkit of cryptanalysts and cryptologists forever. That is why a good encryption algorithm needs to have good diffussion. Unfortunately good diffussion is not possible for the almost-realtime and streaming nature of VOIP. In this case having streaming with a fixed bitrate would fix most of the problem.
Just load Linux, start Firefox, load Linux-in-browser, start Firefox etc etc.
I thought the US subscribed to the Berne Convention, meaning that the copyright exists as the work is created, without any registration or other forms of government intervention.
Why would that guy have requested a copyright certificate? Why does the US government even issue copyright certificate as they are - re the Berne convention - without value.
The point the judge makes is that both in the law (Wetboek van Strafrecht 80sexies) and in the 'Memorandum of Understanding' during the creation of the law, they only considered devices ('automated works') that store (in a non-transient form), (substantially) process *and* transmit data. According to the judge a router fails that test because it does not 1) store (non-transient) the data sent, and 2 does not process the data beyond what is necessary for transmission.
Secondary, the judge finds that the computer crime law (Wetboek van Strafrecht 138a) according to the legal history was intended for protection of those who 'through actual security measures have made clear that they want to shield their data/information from prying eyes'.
As the defendant did not break into a computer (80sexies), and the misuse / misappropriation of a connection is not covered in law (138a), the defendant was cleared of that charge.
... screams from Java developers and server administrators when there XML parsers attempt to locate DTD and schema definitions that for some reason don't have system-local resolution.
In other words: I don't think that Oracle will close off the entire domain, just the usual user-visible parts.
The way I read that sandwich patent, the invention is in keeping the filling from leaking out, by sealing the sandwich by sticking the edges together. Now, I'd still say that still reeks of prior art (pizza calzone), but it is hardly just a sandwich with the crust cut off.
A few days ago a burglar got caught in Roosendaal (NL), as he had taken a hot chocolate milk from the coffeemachine and had left a drip-trail to his current position... According to the newssite he had stolen a bag of instant hot chocolate milk powder for use at home.
@Eddie: how else do you propose they get rid of their garbage? Just chucking it out of the airlock is not a good idea.
Why are you being so harsh to apple about this model? I was highly negative of this myself initially, but only because I got the impression that publisher would be forced to do everything through apple. Now it seems that publishers have the choice to still sell through their own channels and take the full price. So newspapers are still able to give their (hardcopy) subscribers access to the digital version without paying Apple, and can still maintain a record of their subscribers (as long as they are not subscribed through Apple).
I think that takes most of the sting out of the subscription plan.
