Thats' ALSO 127.0.53.53
Congress clearly intended to protect the right of consumers and developers to choose between competing styles of platforms.
Did the publishers just argue to abolish copyrights and exclusive "only on my platform or the highway" contracts?
3rd Reich-style economic control for you, sir? With added hectoring about "money"? Suits you.
Do people need to learn producing proper sequence diagrams under the threat of violence or what?
I'm conservative as anyone, but...
"cloud computing, HSM, virtualisation, all stuff that's been around for decades under a different name"
Not it hasn't. Pretending otherwise is not a service to anyone and is the general region of "IT creationism".
The situation where IBM had "virtual machines" back when on extra-expensive hardware built from discrete logic and triphase current converters where you could admire the 256 KByte RAM usage indicator on a terminal screen and sip coffee while the next program was spooled from a magnetic tape is NOTHING like today.
Or maybe a WWI infantry charge is just like a modern tank brigade plus air support coming at you. Who knows.
Not Halliburton enough, grasshopper!
Now you shall must be FINED!
"Field geologists trained on Mars" on a CV would cause most of Earth's Three Letter Agencies to pursue you as if you had eyes filled with black oil.
It’s a difficult place to understand, where outsiders are often misinformed about the importance of language localisation and the significance of the caste system. The market has special requirements to cope with poor electricity supplies, putting a premium on battery life, heat, dust, and particularly noise. Locally produced phones often have very large speakers.
Basically, it's a cyberpunk market?
Since its first release in 1997 Grand Theft Auto (GTA) has been accused of perpetuating ethnic and sexual discrimination, glamorising violence and inciting real–life crimes.
All the politicians are playing it!
Join the modern world.
Implying they will do that before ISIS takes over the whole show from the inside.
There is Shiis to bomb and military gear to be delivered to open hands holding barrels of oil, we ain't gonna stop now, will we? Can't we look past the little amount of Wahabism?
Billy Mays impersonations.
How does a certain Linux kernel lead fit into that position? He seems to pride himself on being one.
You have to distinguish between Dilbert-type arseholes and the other arseholes.
If you consider the large enterprise, you have policy implemented across a variety of tools. What changes things is the ability to express those controls in a formal way using Chef. That policy as code also comes back into Chef Delivery
Don't tell me logic programming is back en vogue? That would be rad!
“This is not a crash, even if it looks like one,”
About as recomforting as your dotty doctor saying "this is not terminal cancer, even if it looks like one".
John-David Lovelock: “rapid rise in the value of the US dollar against most currencies has put a currency shock in the global IT market."
It's all relative. On the way down the toilet, the dollar seems to be the least sick man: Why The Dollar Is Rising As The Global Monetary Bubble Craters
Our primary distributor Zednax runs the OpenBSD Store and sells our releases worldwide out of the UK.
Why not out of Luxembourg? At least it would be "mainland". Plus: 17% VAT.
Biggest mistake we EVER made was using 365 for email.
And salts. Lots of salts.
THEY ARE PATENTS.
Retarded shit for rent seekers. From a university, moreover.
Oh wait, it's Amurrica. Never mind.
AFAIK there is no sandboxing for extensions. Extensions like NoScript definitely could not run if there were. There should be though.
we just don't know
Still, being defaced by ISIS is probably something that has to be taken more literally than would otherwise be done.
Leaving a friend's car unlocked with the keys in the ignition in a dodgy neighbourhood is not only only stupid, it's probably a crime in itself in most places.
Most places in Amurrica only, I hope?
Oh, sorry, I forgot - it's done to show up the companies with weak security, right?
I don't think so. They just look for low-hanging fruit and shark the dangling bits.
What, was the 20,000 euros just to cover bandwidth costs and associated stuff?
They seem to make it quite clear that is for cigarillos and carribean vacations.
Stormfront member, please.
OTOH, the original "Maxwell Equations" were rather less pleasant to look at than today. It took a serious refactoring effort during the next 25 years:
It could be argued that these equations got their start 150 years ago this month, when Maxwell presented his theory uniting electricity and magnetism before the Royal Society of London, publishing a full report the next year, in 1865. It was this work that set the stage for all the great accomplishments in physics, telecommunications, and electrical engineering that were to follow.
But there was a long gap between the presentation and the utilization. The mathematical and conceptual underpinnings of Maxwell’s theory were so complicated and counterintuitive that his theory was largely neglected after it was first introduced.
It took nearly 25 years for a small group of physicists, themselves obsessed with the mysteries of electricity and magnetism, to put Maxwell’s theory on solid footing. They were the ones who gathered the experimental evidence needed to confirm that light is made up of electromagnetic waves. And they were the ones who gave his equations their present form. Without the Herculean efforts of this group of “Maxwellians,” so named by historian Bruce J. Hunt, of the University of Texas at Austin, it might have taken decades more before our modern conception of electricity and magnetism was widely adopted. And that would have delayed all the incredible science and technology that was to follow.
I was shocked to find out I knew nothing of Maxwell's existence
Did the curriculum stop after Newton?
A constant which interestingly wanted to STAY constant, whatever the galilean reference frame.
Sounds like an Internet of Things thing where people freshly inducted into the industry learn as they pump out the unripe boxes for the consumers.
The names, phone numbers and street and email addresses
So they downloaded the phone book?
We had harder hacks at uni.
At least the "unknown root exploit" is of interest.
"I could do in 1 hour. But for that, I need to short the circuit breakers first!"
"Mine not bitter, your not bitter ... better get the case on twitter!"
HOW a Greek restaurant can survive for years with bad food, badly stored etc ... ??
Just waiting for a bailout, obviously.
Even more, how does that company even survive? Do they have a special relationship with Big Money/The Queen/The Mob/YouGov?
I guess it's more "lightweight" (regarding space and indirect calls till you hit the hardware)?
I am at the point where "exciting" makes make throw up...
Not at all. The sucking sound of funding is in the multitrillion wars (that's factors of 1000s above what we are talking here). Fusion is doing quite well with its own Big Item projects.
That would mean mathematical consistency of Einstein's theory is a necessary and sufficient condition for Einstein being sure not having made mistakes. Wrong on both counts:
Mathematical consistency of the theory might exist (insofar as one can be sure about that), but it might be totally useless in physics, describing a world that is not this one (e.g. a 2D+1 spacetime).
Mathematical consistency or even soundness of the theory might be missing but it might well be very useful in physics (most of physics is dirty tricks, fast haxx and formulae that look good for unfathomable reasons)
You need that telescope.
the public expectation is that we take action
Officer cracking one off while checking Gargle Street View for instances of disorderly behavior. Film at 11!
This remind me of the SciFi story where a marketing experiment is run (in a [spoiler]groundhog-day closed-world environment[/spoiler]) to see whether a good, fat heckling by megaphone at 0600 to BUY THE FUCKING FRIDGE YOU SHIT followed by an apology a bit later will actually result in more sales. I can't remember who wrote it though.
Great fill-o-suffers rarely work together in the same band.
people who'd populated their phones/mp2 players with music rather than relying on Streaming services
One would expect a spontaneous sharing experience to occur, no?
WTF are "windfall profits"?
And damn you Dabbs for making me watch this Youtube stuff in disbelief.
The buggers can't win
Probably the best meta-moan in the world.
Anarchist's Cookbook causing controvery? Yeah, it's 1995 again! PARTY HARD!
Seriously, my nostalgia will make me dig out ANCIENT PRINT COPIES OF WiRED. STOP IT, you dumb politicians!
Unless specific governments take this over I can't see how you can regulate it.
As governments are to all evidence a fat part of the problem, this would be a case of destroying the village in order to save it.
