A "Droopy" event or a "Droppy" event?
I am NOT happy.
Meanwhile, it seems NA14 has been up for a couple of hours now.

Was it a hit by a dirty player?
Sure looks like a penetration in the Ringworld.
Like this is going to be in NO WAY affected by the upcoming mega bubble pop of the cheap money shitters WHICH NOBODY COULD HAVE FORESEEN.
If NATO deploys into Ukraine, the "loaned area" might well extend up to Kiev all of a sudden.
You just don't fuck around with the military interest and need of strategic leeway of an ex-super-centralized state that doesn't particularly trust you, then play nonchalant while letting your generals pump aggressive messages into the aether and having the press/TV (clearly heavily freedomized if not dogwaggified) issue incendiary commentary.
Funny how these things always happen during Olympic Games, too.
The fun with random is that they are sometimes nonrandom to our meaty pattern matcher.
In this case, the recent Twinkle Action is of interest (with obscuring comets unlikely to be the cause, so El Reg headline is a case of churnalistic
errorbait), but the long-term secular "dimming" is not peculiar or distinguishable from noise when one compares against other stars in the archive.
I guess firing the whole lot would just set new precedents in bold steps towards "upgrading productivity and flexibility" unseen since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Palestinians are actually not "state actors".
Now that the two state solution has
gone to the shitteris encountering strong challenges from the realities on the terrain, this is unlikely to change....
Death's head because, you know, free-fire zones, most moral army and all that.
People have sexual organs and also an oppressive desire to use them.
In truth, the law of "no showing of things" comes from the American Occupation. Or so I hear.
(That occupation also worked hand-in-hand with class A war criminals to get some societal control. Americans are nothing if not pragmatic. Paper Clippy concurs. But that's just by-the-by.)
Don't be a Dough Pirate!
Only buy Monsanto-branded Monsanto Dough!
And remember: rooting your toaster is a criminal offense!
No, it's deliberate.
> And a big shout out to Bill Gates for creating Windows
Bill Gates was not particularly involved in creating Windows, there were crazy cellar monkeys hacking up a semi-functional system while be was talking to IBM about how to bring OS/2 (and PM) to market.
Also, I find this kind of arm-raising salutes disturbing.
Probably counting each parked domain name showing IIS running as a unique server.
Who not totally skill-less and/or in dire need of running MS-SQL because of "compatibility" issues would be running WIndows Server?
Microsoft has announced that the free all-you-can-eat Windows 10 upgrade buffet will close forever
More like "just what we give" buffet?
US$119 is the price Redmond has set for the Home version of the operating system
HA HA HA! Well incited, Redmond!
Maybe he's Matt Bryant in shiney new clothes?
Can't be, there is no unwarranted dissing of everything Sun, no mention of "dead-end Sunshiners", no egotisitic strutting as "most hardcore admin in the West who always knew this" and no "Oracle did it first, Oracle is the best, the BEST!" ebullient enthusiasm for the red-colored House of Harkonnen.
Dadmin is rather reasonable.
"Start thinking for yourself and you might find Windows 10 OK."
This politicial message brought to you from the bowels of the beast.
" it will take time to ramp it down."
It's like "ethnic cleansing" in that respect.
XP Embedded made it easy to build a system that's pretty much invulnerable
This is some kind of sicko joke, right?
eejitconfused co-citizen says:
Windows 7 is pretty ancient by IT standards
Did you mean to say "Windows 7 is pretty ancient by Microsoft marketing standards"?
I don't want to diss the probably excellently skilled and extensively manicured as well as quite likely female-by-a-high-percentage Microsoft marketing section, but these people are fuck bonkers crazy and no mistake.

Are you seriously running a mission-critical server on a box with a consumer desktop version of Windows installed on it? You are aware that there are versions of Windows that have "Server" in the name? Why do you think that is?
Another version that's just not fit for mission-critical operations, just with a different price tag to re-enable "features consumers are not interested in"?
Just looking at the El Reg headlines reveals how utterly toxic and dis-empowering "consumer IT" has become.
Like getting rogered repeatedly by a cloudy, decadently embroidered and patent-encumbered elephant in must who demands money, proceeds to action, then pisses on you once his immediate needs have been fulfilled.
Wrutten by .Net munkeys possibly so codekewl that they dropped out of uni as the material was too abstract, now hidden inside the bowel of the Redmond beast and lorded over by the marketing barons of interconnectedness and cloud sharing. Yes, GiBs will be lost.
Maybe he totally, utterly believes he is SN (as some people believe they are the Messiah and pull others along in their mesmerizing slipstream), but whenever he turns around and tries to prove it, reality conspires to thwart him!
It would be like a protagonist of a PKD novel. Just get romantically involved with young girls and add a bit of the IoT to make it complete.
He will be back as a politician.
WHEN YOU TRY TO BOMB A SMART CITY, IT ACTUALLY BOMBS YOU BACK!
Smart cities are disliked by Coalitions of the Willing and other astroturf outfits.
My Tesla would certainly fit into my smart city while I admire the sunset from my cyberterrasse tended by robogardeners which excusitely cut the leaves of bioengineered salad growing in my sustainable conapt microgarden, with the IoT fridge loudly wifiing out for more lettuce!
Microsoft search revenue rose by 18%.
How much in real terms?
Also, Granny will be off the Internet once the Upgrade to Win10 has knackered the network interface for good (as happend in this here VAIO which is not in the list of system approved for Win10 but definitely in the list of system that pester you to upgrade to Win10 ... INTO THE TRASH IT GOES)
Why is "Calculator" even an "App"? The fall into the black hole of stupid continues unabated.
Anyway, use a proper language and a REPL (like groovysh) for fastest help in arithmetic.
Programs imitating physical calculator devices of the 80's are just naff.
This is a handy feature, don't diss it!

Also, this article needs a powerpoint presentation with more info.
Time for some due diligence and go ring at the company door.
> Rockstar Coders, Ninja Sysadmins, Database Gurus
Avoid anything like that, and if given half the occasion, burn it with fire!
This is why I barf when IEEE design up another advertisement for
(Next up: "Rockstars of Counterinsurgency", "Ninjas of Extraordinary Rendition", "Mavericks of Legalized Illegal Surveillance", "Gurus of Quantitative Easing" etc.)
That's what you get when mailing the nerd cave.
Apparently these people have nothing better to do than write extensive mails while finding their inner lawyer and patting themselves on the back?
Support: We just amuse ourselves with e-mails.
Planet COORS I to COORS IV, then.
So... I hear this ship was made to ship coal?
Do not take the wind out of anon's sails.
It's time to leave the doldrums of the IT operations room and head to new horizons.
That's a classic. Therac 25 will meet you now.
Unless the board consists of vampires.
I love these Hillary Clinton style e-mails. Mafia-style circumlocutions, dirty backhanders and planned, intentional pollution of the software ecosystem for all to see.
These people would put melamine into milk in a jiffy if they were in that market.
... Another example of this was Microsoft's .Net platform and C# when it first appeared. MS was pushing .Net like no tomorrow and convinced the pragmatists that .Net was the way forward on the Windows platform instead of Java, and of course Mono worked out very well for them because they could point to it as an independent cross-platform implementation.
The problem is MS is not doing the same thing today: they're not pushing F# as the way forward in programming .Net like Apple is Swift. They're afraid to cannibalise the C# business despite the pain points like concurrency and high ceremony/boilerplate. When Microsoft speaks, the pragmatist herd listens.
Today, F#'s biggest competitor is not Haskell or OCaml or whatever, but rather C#.
Oh, Miggy. Now I understand.
And we found that there was a real thirst with developers to use a high level language which is better than Java and Objective-C. We saw our market grow from zero to hundreds of thousands of developers. I think C# is definitely growing. It is nice how much investment is still going into C# the language.
The only mental image that comes up is a dog endlessy chasing its own tail on which the text "a better bracketty language" can be seen. That dog is seriously retarded and unapologetic about its avoiding ideas that are actually an improvement.
If he had said F# the language, yeah. But C#???
There will be a law against that in a jiffie!
Admit it, you have been reading Philip K. Dick again!
Well, for the H bomb that was some fear that it could ignite the atmosphere. They did some calculations, then proceeded anyway. That took BALLS!
The onle problem I see with your networked scale is that it failed to wish you a nice day, play relaxing elevator music WHILE BRIEFLY ITEMIZING THE GOVERNMENTAL BRILLIANT IDEAS OF TODAY and remind you where your PLACE is.
