So your company is mainly soliloquizing?
Meanwhile business marches on ignoring the IT department that doesn't adapt to the business needs.
Is this like a paraplegic "marching on", ignoring the wheelchair that doesn't roll?
Meanwhile in the real world, Linux has so many holes and vulnerabilities that the NSA doesn't even need to bother to ask for access....
This message from Microsoft Grassroots written on a machine that has hopefully been patched during the last PATCH TUESDAY, between packets of pwnage and unsecure OLE shit, hmmmm?
"Strategic planning process for end user computing"
Systems and methods are described for obtaining a first governance score that is a measure of federation for a platform, a first risk score that is a measure of risk tolerance for the platform, a first audit score that is a measure of record keeping ability for the platform, a first productivity score that is a measure of workforce productivity for the platform, and a first elasticity score that is a measure of change tolerance for the platform. The method further obtains operational readiness scores that are measures of processes used to manage the platform within an organization, adjusts the first scores based on the operational readiness scores, calculates respective corresponding second scores pertaining to the organization, calculates a respective assessment for each of the adjusted first scores based on a comparison of the adjusted first score with the corresponding second score, and provides a summary of the assessments.
A patent on pulling floats out of the arse? In 2014?
Yes, it's amerruca.
I like the choice between old cancer, updated cancer, new cancer and roadmapped cancer in the morning.
The bolt on bit -- that was from the operning sequence of The Shining, wasn't it?
Or they could just do a new good film instead.
stuffed to the gills with American cliches
They became clichés AFTER Blade Runner, little grasshopper.
All I can see is a scruffy good-ish guy
It's called "hardboiled" style. Luckily the Director's Cut dropped the "I'm Tracer Bullet" voiceover.
Gaff was so depressed by having had to tell this lie that he changed his name, invented himself a new life and enlisted in the Space Navy. He ended up commanding a Battlestar rustbucket with no modern computer support and a misfit crew, not to mention an alcoholic XO.
And that's when his Replicant troubles REALLY started...
That would make it the Millenium U-Boot.
My understanding of quantum computers is that they're somewhat equivalent to massively multicore computers
Hmmm..... not really. More like an analog computer.
An ISIS Quantum Computer? Not likely.
It then vanished through a wormhole.
Its last mysterious message, garbled and extremely redshifted was "Oh my [unintelligible], it's full of arseholes!!"
Technically, they can be emulated but with an exponential slowdown.
An representation of n qubits for example demands that you store the complex probability amplitude of each of the 2^n possible classical states (this is the "state of the n-qubit quantum system"). There is a differential equation involving a 2^n * 2^n matrix that you have to integrate over time to find that state at time T. Finally you have to make the solution classical (this is easily done though, it consists in projecting the 2^n vector onto various axes to get the classical probabilities, then select a classical solution according to these probabilities). Overall intense on the CPU and memory though.
For infinite-dimensional states (e.g. position of a particle in space where each position is one dimension) things are even nastier.
All in all, a good reason to good back to the good old principles of analog computation.
If you think about it, classical computers are basically just NAND gates glued together, it's not surprising that they fundamentally can't do everything...
It seems to me that quantum machine learning could build a system like Gordon Way's Reason. Ie. you feed in all the relevant data, and you train the quantum computer with the answer you want, and it generates the simplest way to get from the data to the answer...
There are at least three places in that funding proposal where magic is supposed to happen.
But please do go on.... but insist more on how exactly the magic quantum sauce will be better than bog-standard classical physics at empowerating the computing process (which is just in the BQP complexity class, remember?).
This could be confirmed by looking at the spot prices for the EC2 datacenters?
None of what I have read matches anything of reality.
It is also a delusion born out of feminist dogma to deny differences due to gender.
It is also not a problem if there are professions that have a gender imbalance.
Can we now close this dossier?
get an "expert" to fix it for you
For some reason, no-one expects the car fix to happen in the next 10 minutes ("that's all the time I have") and to be thrown in for free ("make a commercial gesture, here"). This is followed by "what is antivirus"?
Fuck all those people.
Some guy said something bad about your telecommunications. Who was it?
3) Shut up and vote
depending on the wording of the original request made by the police vodafone may have given them exactly what they asked for
And if not, a little retconning of one actually wanted to do will take care of ... discrepancies.
I am sure the order for a large batch of leather rainjackets and boots has already been issued to the finest London tailors.
Aristotelean Syllogisms are still are useful in 2014.

It's "Foie Gras" and it comes from cruelly stuffed duck.
The comic "Astérix, Obélix et Netflix" is already in preparation.
The entourloupettes of the Académie Française are a major source of mirth even among french-speaking people.
to use the local language
Netflix doesn't come in Arabic either.

But are they justified?
The spine is not designed for upright posture to start with.
Especially if it is not upright in the first place, hmmmm?
In martial arts, you get constantly reminded to keep your STUPID SPINE UPRIGHT. There must be some kind of reason to that.
Cow-orkers have been a known staple of Usenet since the early 90s.
There have been a lot of studies and presentations by private and state groups which have not been published in the mainstream media, where it is the microwave pulses which damage cells, not heating, including cancer by where a mobile was held for long periods.
 and meetings by state-funded idiots and neurotic get-togethers don't count.
microwave pulses which damage cells
Not understanding anything about carrier frequencies and mistaking "pulses" for some force-applying magic stuff FAIL.
Smartphones are now being used for several hours per day by people who haven't picked up a book in 20-30 years.
"It's too late, iPhone hipster! It was always too late!"

Attachement to base reality would have lifted off the page at this point.
More seriously, possibly the shadowy "they" are watching all this corporate revenue being moved through Ireland for tax purposes.
Just phone up the big four.
Please tell us more.
Holy shit, this country is fucked up!
At least one commentard disagreed. Having visited the reeducation facilities which are in impeccable condition and maintained to the highest sanitary standards, a consequential downvote was just the right action to perform.
"I also have a problem. I'm not sure which side runs this Village."
I've looked at the Docker image repos, and I don't see any mention of image signatures. If they aren't signing images, they should be, like Linux repos do.
I hope so, otherwise COMDEDY GOLD events are sure to happen.
> Weinberg's Law
Someone spouts a bizarre meme (Since when is this being attributed to Weinberg btw, a person very much unconnected to computers?), this is then uplifted to "law" and is then repeated by windbags regularly. Meanwhile A380s that have been software-designed and are flying heaps of computers ACTUALLY FLY.
> He stated this way back in 1971, and nothing in programming, save the names of the languages used, has changed much since.
More sophomoric shit. If that were true, we would still be discussing whether structured programming were a good idea.
natural fluorescence means that blue-blocking goggles aren't effective for protecting your eyes
So how many drive-through beer & bang shops lead to death by lead slugs accelerated to several hundred meter per second?
The cleaning lady has the front door keys and the bank (an by extension, the state, which can "seize" the goods at the drop of a writ) has my wallet.
Oh, no, Trevor, you're mad! The cloud doesn't need backups! The cloud doesn't need DR to another cloud or locally! The cloud provides! The cloud is immeasurably cheaper! The cloud, the cloud, the cloud!
I can't remember anyone vaingloriously hyping cloudy services to such an extend in the forum?
This is not the marketing department after all.
Keeping your /home on a separate partition helps.
Yes, especially if that partition is encrypted.
Plus, a little git-managed directory with all those nasty configfiles (generally somewhere in /etc) and little compare-and-plonk scripts on the side.
Since 9/11, I have died many times over and I am now only an illusionless husk ripe for ISIS pickings....
A secondary payload to infect your visual cortex, dear. The fact that you noticed it is bad prognosis...
I woke up at 06:30 in the morning, what are you implying?
So there are likely still more surprises that will need amazingly similar patches in the future?
