Nice little video, especially the bit about smoking and statistics.
My new years resolution is start early, finish late, at the pub.
Still not keen on people going to the pub for a ******* latte.
When I can get a pint in Starbucks feel free to stop me getting alcohol in a pub by ordering a bloody coffee.
What could possibly make you think I'm an academic?
I'm not :-)
You can always find something in a blog which agrees with what you want to hear.
Give me the raw data and I'll work it out for myself.
Just saying it said in the 1960s they said a bottle of wine a day is obviously the way to go. Suppose you can find articles from then saying smoking is not a danger to anyone and you don't need to worry about asbestos.
I'm sticking to beer!
Does that include M&S ?
The bit about adding 15% storage per annum is interesting as working at a Russell group University I see storage requirements/requests growing at a far greater rate.
For example as soon as you want to do full genomic comparisons of large groups or SPIM
(Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy) storage requests go through the roof.
Running another analysis requires the samples are kept in a viable state and storing stuff like that makes digital storage look the easy option.
As you say it's a very complex subject and IMHO one in which the sys admin should not ordinarily be involved in. We implement and in some cases advise but it's really a policy issue for the security team if you have one.
Still in my experience getting change on something which is perceived as a possible threat compared to something which is actually happening is damn impossible.
Not until you so kindly pointed it out!
Watching the little processing icon is as tiresome as it is dangerous.
drive like you stole it
Your guess is as good as mine.
I would thought for a lot of people having a car boy racers wouldn't steal is a positive advantage.
If I click on their facebook link what laws am I breaking.
Supposed to be a joke hence the icon but not so sure these days.
Thought I'd have a look at the Mute website and found this:
Well that's answered the icon nicely.
(as Sun often used to do with the next generation of RAM) finance the existence of that leap in cost performance and thus make it actually happen.
Whatever happened to them ?
Obviously not in Hull then!
We use consultants on £1000+ a day, it's unlikely they would bend down to pick up £2000!
Anyway blackmailing a sysadmin when there are accountants and HR people still alive is just so wrong !!!
Excellent job folks!
Isn't science great :-)
Afghanistan seems to cope quite well when other nations stay out.
The surprise is it is still around until you consider the nature of the terrain it lives in.
Re Canon G15
Ditto, lovely camera and it has a viewfinder great for us four-eyes :-)
Indeed, just become by new e-mail signature
Data Mining, noun: "Torturing data until it confesses ... and if you torture it enough, it will confess to anything."
Isn't the problem that if you constantly resort to being rude people cannot work out if it's an act or really something important.
I'm sure we all know the case when it's either "Bloody hell X, doesn't normally talk like that, what's up?" and "oh it's just Y, always kicking off, ignore him!".
The boy who always cried wolf comes to mind.
Oracles problem regarding MySQL is basically a lot of people don't like them.
For a anti-Oracle rant see below:
There are several options you can use to replace Oracles version of MySQL and I don't think any technical arguments are going to overrule some who just hates Oracle and say's lets use MariaDB/ Postgres whatever.

What's so strange about wearing glasses?
From "Four Eyes"
"It would have been interesting if the parallels between 21st century dark matter and 19th century luminiferous ether had been made."
Last thing you want in the pub is the wife ringing me to ask where I am.
Do they actually still use a PDP-11 at EE?
In my experience that covers a lot of countries, not just the USA.
"Brits on the piss" is not a nice sight as I'm sure lots of people can testify to.
"With the back-to-school shopping season kicking off !"
Mine haven't finished this years yet.
How much is this going to cost me :-)
He shot 4 over (the second best amateur score) and is level with Ernie Els and Angel Cabrera.
Sounds a good day at the office!
Just to qualify for the US Open is one hell of an achievement!
Just popped in and they are still using them in there :-)
Ditto but they have fingers in many pies!
I suggest you get out a bit more !
Or even google "economist marx was right"
Wonder what language the interface will be in, (yes I am sad that that sort of stuff interests me !)
You have to love it when a country has two official languages, one English and the other Urdu which is the native tongue of less than 8% of the population.
Anyway best of luck with them doing this, would be nice to have a success story coming from Pakistan once in a while.
Not sure I want "most ambitious release to date," what I want is something stable and robust, evolution not revolution.
See Maria DB is in and firewalld.
especially if you've been polygraphed, you're an insider and you are presumed to be trustworthy
Remember: the press is already "controlled" by civil and criminal law, which, in the era of super-injunctions and human-rights law, is probably tougher than ever before.
That is if you can afford it, super-injunctions are not cheap, as to human-rights law can you get legal aid for that?
Half the time it's too left wing, the other half it's too right wing.
If you can upset both sides it cannot be doing too bad a job.
"It didn't give any reason for closing out its Facebook stake."
Took a nice profit and saw it was time to get out whilst winning?
Or perhaps Arsenal need some more players!
What does ddywetsoch mean?
Anyone else get a letter from Carolyne Jones saying:
You may have seen today a story on ‘TheRegister’ saying that Dell & Oracle were forging a partnership on X86 that intimated that Dell were taking over Oracle X86 hardware production. This is not the case. Dell will have the right to sell X86 systems with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM into Dell’s own customer base, but this agreement does NOT extend to Solaris.
Hitting the shelves becomes hitting the virtual shelves!
If it's based on Fedora 17 does that mean you will have to move to one based on 18 as soon as 19 comes out?
I do like Fedora but the release cycle is quite fast IMHO.
Willis said that the maturity of the market in BYOD administration tools should solve any nagging problems – so it's up to IT managers to sort it out.
So people shell out loads of money to Gartner and the best they can say is it should be okay.
For the price they charge I'd want a cast iron guarantee it "WILL SOLVE ANY NAGGING PROBLEMS" apologies for shouting!
Someone has a sense of humour then!
Can we have an icon showing a dram being raised?
I have a t-shirt with "Break Into Banks" on the back for the "A Song Of Stone" book, love wearing it when I go in to pay my credit card bill.
"Fourthly, Oracle needs a storage array roadmap that responds to a gradual but growing migration of enterprise's stored data into the cloud, which will include some primary data, thus reducing the market for shared storage arrays. "
Wouldn't this beg the question what "the cloud" actually stores stuff on and get in on that market?
Like your description of evidence about smoking being "highly contained"
More accurate might be that a famous statistician being paid by the tobacco industry and saying actually "lung cancer caused smoking" not the other way round.
Immigration and the environment did not make the top of the list in any country over the 17-year period;
Okay neither made the top but I dare say the former does seem to exercise a lot of people.
Why lump two concerns together which seem to have very little connection/correlation.
Also 60 years ago nobody was concerned about the effects of smoking, (no one really knew the dangers) does this mean it should still be ignored?
Wonder what the meeting was like where it was decided to run with this communication.
Person 1: Er do you want to put your name to this?
Person 2: Not really, why don't you?
Person 1: Agreed lets bat this one upstairs !
Person 2: Do you think we can still get iPhones for work?
Person 1: Dunno!
