Does this mean my content on DropBox is knowable?
*HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY*
The "bug" where the flash ad auto plays at max fucking volume --- Heyyyy you want Viagra!? --- How bout some cute Asian, Ukrainian, Russian women? If I wanted a wife/girfirend I'd rent one *BASTARDS*
Looking you too ElReg ... I understand that websites require advertising to bring in the pennies; But if you launch that shit in my face every time I land on a page, AdBlock gets installed on that machine pretty damned quick.
Every man & his dog monitoring every single thing I do down to breaking wind and you can't even deliver on the promise of all that monitoring? Accurately targeted advertising; Targeted my arse.
Yes I'm nearing 50, yes I'm currently single; No I don't want to see "older" friking ladies with their cleavage hanging over the edge to the ad window; Show me shiny laptops, cars, gadgets show me expensive holidays to tropical paradises...
Bad spam-vertiser... BAD
Now ... get the hell off my lawn
What about a HomePlug <--> LedLighting style adapter
Visable light for the meatbags
IR for the iFondleThings
Mains power for the back-haul to the router
The downside would be no network connectivity when the lights are off, Which will make night time happy time difficult unless you make it a "smart" light bulb along the lines of the Philips Hue style units.
My ancient PalmPilot networked using the same technology :)
Wasn't it 4GL & smart systems that was supposed to put us all out of a job in the 1980's ?
Setup another DHCP pool that allocates the IP address of the devices to a new subnet with a bogus default route; You can assign em based on the MAC address. If the device can't route out of your network, it can't talk back to the mothership
Wonder what happens when the great and the good get re-broadcast el-unnatural
Wonder what the prime-minister is up to this morning ... Slurping Earl Grey
If their revenue WRT the mobile division is ¥429bn then according to google that's $68bn (USD)
How the fuck can they only make $80m in profit? are their margins really THAT thin?
Or is this some creative accounting for tax purposes?
Or have I utterly misunderstood the article?
Nice hardware, shame about the software
I don't suppose the M$ will allow us to unlock the bootloader so I can finally install Debian on it?
When will they learn; When will they stop rolling thier own shitty interfaces & builds
If they got alongside the WRT guys, we could have a secure & up to date build on these trice damned boxes.
But Noooo .... The drooling lickspittles have to nail down our ability to get a decent WRT distro on the boxes; while simultaneously allowing the window licking scipt kiddies in through the front door.
Doesn't have to go to sleep for millions of years, Not unless it wants to go interstellar
Plenty of sunlight for electrons & material for spare parts right here in the solar system
I guess the assumption I'm questioning is that any given AI would want to rule over us like any other brain dead sociopath IE: Politician. It doesn't need to eat, fuck or climb the social ladder, so why assume it has our drives WRT to ruling the world?
The paranoia around strong AI
Why would such an entity want to hang around this dirt ball anyway. Lets face it Plenty of free energy & materials to build things in space. An AI won't give a fig about living in hard vacuum. Wanting to stick around just to subjugate us meatbags shows a distinct lack of imagination; Any AI doing so would be considered a distinct fail in the I bit of AI

> Pure-play DaaS is already handy for things like desktops for temps, the paper says, largely because it requires no capital expenditure.
Other than the screen, keyboard, mouse plus what ever connects those things to the local LAN
Or am I missing something?

Hey ... wanna see the monkeys freak out?
Agreed, utterly & completely
But as you say, the trick is to use that style of language at the right time for maximum effect.
Some of my workmates over the years have effed & Blinded every second word; sort of dulled the impact of the *censored* words in question.
I've always taken a twisted sense of pride in trying to get the same effect as swearing but with only "standard" descriptive language (it helps exercise the vocabulary). I was once oven able to make a co-worker blanch without a single foul syllable :)
Didn't one of the IP(v4) dads set out to design an "interplanetary" internet?
Personally I always thought that a bastardized version of Fido net(tm) would be a far better solution for such a high latency network. a 4 hour lag means hitting a website is impractical. Mail & file transfer is all you need in this case. Even Mars is what, a minimum delay of around 4 minutes and the maximum of around 24 minutes?
*sniff* ... Is it sad that I miss the sounds of zone mail hour? *WOOF*
> "Never trust a computer that's too heavy to lift" - can't recall where I first saw that one, but it has served me well. ;)
I have the same policy with regards to girlfriends :)
He was a Tory peer; Wasn't he?
Once upon a long time ago; when dinosaurs walked the earth
The was a project to opensource PC BIOSes, the original design was to do something similar to
SUNs OpenBoot (The FOSS one was OpenBIOS I think?).
The hope I had for this was... being able to talk to the BIOS firmware settings from the OS
Sadly, SUN, OpenBoot/BIOS all seem to be gone now
> A server OS that requires a touchscreen? Are you sure you haven't been sold an iPad or something?
The brand name wasn't Etch-A-Sketch by any chance?
> It's because of inanity like this and other things that just beggar belief
... things that just bugger belief
There fixed that for you
I hearby gnomeinate slablet as ElReg HR approved slango!
I see a lot of scoffing at old laws (Burn the witch, burn the witch)
But; May I remind you that the law against murder is pretty old too
Yes, older that the USA even.
Perhaps the answer for apple/google/etc is to up-sticks & move to a country with freedom & proper laws and other silly little conveniences like that; I hear the the norks are looking for some tech help :)
Many machines on Ix. New machines.
I'll keep the smarts to my home network where it belongs. Under MY thumb.
If you start letting the ISP/Carriers etc get more control over function & features, they will eventually fuck you with it.
Give me a big dumb internet that just whourks packets back & forth
> given how complex this area is and how hard to isolate
Easy ... in the last 20 years violence in society has been steadily dropping. In the last 20 years there has been a huge explosion in computer games; If video games make people violent then we would be seeing more violent crime not less
I blame MechJeb
I revere Beer & loose bacon :)
I have a NSA free cloud service
it's called ownCloud
> you're all subjects of the Emperor now
The Emperor protects!
*SNIFF* My very first computer.
Shit I must be old .... when the fuck did THAT happen :)
I like your idea! You could also surround Hungary with a forest of Wifi Antenna's & sell access to the poor impoverished Hungarians. That way you don't have to run in the fibre, which the H-Govt could "accidentally" dig up with their tanks^H^H^H^Hractors.
EU rules forbid anti-competitive behaviour no? Hungarian ISP's go belly up, H-Govt looses what little Corporation tax the ISP's deigned to pay
Win win really :)
How is that a downside?
Seems like a must have feature to me!
I really don't like the one large monolithic monster app approach
I also miss being able to just tweak an init script to make it do what I want
I'd be willing to give that up if the flexibilty was provided some other way
Like many others I've only started looking at systemd
Like a new Doctor Who, I'm not sure if I'm going to like it or not, time will I guess tell
Mainly cos I ain't got one :(
> Anyone these days can get access to a degree in software engineering
It was never ever about gender. It has always been about money
If you were a well off 18th century type, you got an education, otherwise not so much. If you were male you got to go to work (Yay weren't they lucky)
The systemic male oppression you speak of never really existed. It was rich vs poor and still is.
I've always wondered what would happen if I started a "None of the above" political party
Lot internet connection a week or two ago, and while the lnterwebs were down I tried to print from my phone(Android) to my Brother printer. Didn't think much of it as It's something I do from time to time, without much fuss
What I realised due to my net downtime, was the Brother app needs the internet to do it's thing!
Anything I print makes it's way out to Brother, gets rendered, then gets sent back to the printer
Cue much wailing and gnashing of teeth ... App deleted.
Hehe ... Initially read that as "Voodoo firmware tends to suck and Belkin is especially stupid."
Mate ... Given the magnitude of your arsehole-ness; Don't go out when it too windy, you may well invert.
We spend money on oil, that money goes to people who spend it on trying to kill us
If we placed say 5c tax/litre of fuel and spent it on getting industrial scale Thorium-MSR + Haber process
We would, cut the cash going to the people who fund the people who are trying to kill us
provide electricity, provide a locally made alternative to petrol, diesel & oil etc
Also means no retro-fit for our exiting vehicle fleet
Cheaper than another war; No?
> BTW, there are no larger Linux servers than 8-sockets on the market
Linux will run on IBM Z series; No?
Got a couple of these at work http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/x/hardware/enterprise/x3850x5/specs.html
Apparently there is an interconnect that allows you to single image two chassis together (I assume NUMA)
So that is 4TB of ram & 160cpu threads
Imagine being able to detect when the neighbour is facing the TV and slowly opening & closing the curtains, fridge door, cat flap etc .... Drive them mad/scare em shitless; fun for Halloween, not so much the rest of the year.
Security is going to be the issue when they finally get all this crap to talk amongst themselves.
I'd love to be able to get home & say "house lights on", but when the phone can't even get "ok google" right 50% of the time, I don't hold out much hope
> My God! You see that as "progress"? If electronic equipment tracks me, hounds me, and nags me to do things, what will my wife find to do with her time?
