"hypocracy" is something else though. Government by the bottom maybe?
The PC market is back in the doldrums
Logbook, 16:30: A large white whale was spotted by cap'tn Nadella on the horizon, but it escaped unharmed.
The wait under the leaden sun goes on.
The kickstart something.
The model of "doing OSS in spare time" is dangerous in any case and bound to de-cliff at a moment's notice. Because too personal.
Intel is generally not too unfriendly irt OSS though. What's going on here?
I don't see where the problem is.
Sounds like a friendly report & patch to me.
> billion dollar company.
Irrelevant. Trademark litigation is not exactly an open-ended "he said/she said" affair.
"We want them to stop using this"
"Is it a registered trade mark in the economic area described in the filing" YES
"Is in the same domain of application" YES
"Ok, stop using it"
"Linux Carrier Grade Profile" shurely better than "Windows for Warships"?
So .... looking forward to a nice statement by WindRiver.
And what does the GNU legal counsel say?
How is ripoff company connected to stopping support for "stable" as apparently they are not using it in the first place, and is it time to start registering trademarks on, say "grsecurity"?
And that's any different with a cloudy provider?
No, and that's the point.
Welcome to the Real World, where you have to take decisions that are neither black nor white.
You actually have faith in SLA's?
No, but you have to make the good out of the bad. A penalty clause can rarely be enforced in-house. On the other side of the "house" interface though, it can. Money and lawyers concentrate the mind.
In the end, you have to the comparison of the attributes that different solutions offer you now and five years out, then select accordingly.
And you will have no way to know when it will be back, nor can you do anything about except shout on the phone.
You do have proper SLAs don't you? The ones that stand-in for the OLAs that you didn't manage to properly implement with in-house services because of undecided management and unclear separation of responsibilities, not to mention budgetary restrictions? Where you had to shout on the phone with the sysops down in the basement and never knew when the service would be back?
IT has a cost. Putting data in the Cloud does not remove that cost. It does, however, remove your control over it to place it in the hands of you don't know who.
I have bad news about the software, hardware and firmware you are running in your datacenter though. Hold on, did that consultant just walk out with a large USB stick?
For what purpose? Who is the target audience for balls with toothed beaks?
I don't know why Tommy Hilfiger clothing comes to mind.
I do hope it is an outtake of Halloween 2015: Shamrock's Revenge.
I am not sure how I would feel about a popup telling me "too many users have that password already, please choose another one".
Censorship is never neutral dog. That's, like, a totally different mass of state-issued shit.
Provide link, dawg.
It's not even paywalled.
It's the reason that's important
"Not basing traffic management on packet attributes that are irrelevant for said management."
On a highway toll booth, cars with the "already paid elsewhere" sticker, the VIP marker or the blue light may pass quickly. The rest should be an amalgamated mass. Once vans of delivery company X are suspiciously often held up compared to vans of delivery company Z, something is going on. But then the contract should stipulate a max delay time for 99% of the time or penalties.
If there are daily jams, you may want to consider using our VIP#2 lane, usable for a low, low fee... (and then you have to hope that the next tool booth is either owned by the same operator or is contractually bound to you, too)
In the software world, there is talk about moving away from the "Not responsible, LOL" EULA model for paid-for software. Is it time to move away from the "best effort, LOL" EULA model for packet delivery?
It is possible to have network infrastructure that has more bandwidth than the consumers can use.
I though this was a tech site?
Oh well. Maybe economics is no longer even needed for modern button pushers.
"If Obama can promise 5 billion of "special pension outlays", why not 500 billion??"
says it's a dog-lick-dog kind of event, so there is no need to protest too much.
THEN ANCIENT/TRANSDIMENSIONAL EVIL IS UNLEASHED and you end up WHERE YOU NEED NO EYES
Until the user has to do something that ought to be a little more complicated, at which point it becomes a lot more complicated.
1) Make the mundane simple.
2) Make the demanding possible.
Windows used to stop at 1). To reach 2), difficulties and hits on your credit card increased exponentially.
Well, at least there is PowerShell now.
Commendable effort. Some stylistic errors and author nearly comes across as too retarded to be believable. Would troll with. 8/10.
The only thing that came with WIndows 95 was an icon to "Microsoft Network", which was meant shield the user FROM the Internet into an ill-defined Microsoft walled garden into which you had to dial via some local access point in partnership with some operator.
The night sky on Earth in its early years was very different, with our Moon glowing red with fire in the sky. Now scientists think they've worked out why.
As we don't have reliable eyewitness accounts about those times, the last "why" should be replaced by a "that".
The grammar would be atrocious but the direction of scientific enquiry would be right.
Sorry, dude. We are all at level 7+ here. And its infinite recursive gyrations. A City of Saints and Madmen, indeed.
More like a hatch someone forgot to close a couple of megayears ago.
lightweight transactions such as Paxos
Kudos for mentioning PAXOS but AFAIK PAXOS is just the general case of the 2-phase commit protocol (n-phase commit protocol?), the latter hidden under the "Distributed Transactions" designator. So not particularly lightweight .
In truth, I haven't understood PAXOS as far as I would like, Leslie Lamport's original paper was way confusing the last time I read it. I need to start again...
Centerum Censo, people should read: A Critique of ANSI SQL Isolation Levels. Transactions - An underrated area of interesting stuff.
JSON and XML are both fine on a 1G LAN.
Why is this even being discussed? Either you have data in your database that fit your problem, then they have to transit, 1Gbps LAN or not. Or you don't, in which case better head for the showers. If you absolutely want, you can compress them to some binary but still inspectable format after all.
JSON (for what purpose?) and XML are fine and in PostgreSQL and others, XML is just another column data type that you can operate on. Purposeless adherence to First Normal Form is just for people who want to suffer and who actually believe Strings are "atomic". We not only want set values, we want annotated tree values! (Why not graphs, actually?)
This gave them what they were looking for
They were looking for sado-masochism, fast?
> Not invested in anything myself
I am not sure whether you are aware that the economy now basically consists of people arranged in a circle gripping each other's overly leveraged balls.
Once somebody squezzes, it's gonna be fun.
Every cable measured TO THE INCH to the patch panels and crimped by hand. And often going through the centres of the racks so you couldn't actually insert anything more into the rack without de-patching EVERY CABLE and re-patching it. For one cabinet we had to pull an all-nighter just to rewire 24U. And we rewired EVERY cable in there.
Master troll is masterful!
As long as you don't pay by African Credit Card (aka. avtomat kalashnikova)
LOL u mad?
Wir zeigen Ihnen, "noch eine Sache", Arschloch
This sounds double ominous in german. Was that really necessary?
Paul, is that you?
I remember that comic. There was a hitman cleaning out all the observatories to hide the fact that the world's gonna end in a month or so.
Yup, yup. Makes sense. Politicians would do ANYTHING to win the next election.
Doing business under fascism is always a tad difficult. You have to wiggle your arse and hustle...
Should have, could have.
I remember that idea was rejected because there was Hurd going nowhere fast, microkernels were starting to go out of fashion (sometimes someone dowloaded the Mach manual), and Linus wanted to have something situated in a known technical domain at useful levels of functionality fast. Hence, monolithic kernel.
It's the same as the difference between honest diplomacy and wargasm lies being pumped out by Judith Miller types, now being produced courtesy of AP.
Why is it called Blue Termite?
Is it a play on the Blue Ant company from the later William Gibson novels? (Pattern recognition and later novels)?
...duly published in Nature.
...they are being fined for not being precog enough?
"Yes, Mr. Anderson. It seems your department's work has not been up to the usual standards lately .... give money plox!"
Does their insurance cover that sort of event?
And do they screen animals like Cheney, Hillary and "Inspector Surge" Petraeus?
Hannah and her sweets have probably put paid to that
I WILL SAY. The person who formulated this as if he/she were hailing from the low-power bulb end of the Gaussian would have been sent for a ten-year stint of hard labor to Australia in more enlightened times!
Hannah has 6 orange sweets and some yellow sweets.
Overall, she has n sweets.
The probability of her taking 2 orange sweets is 1/3.
Prove that: n^2-n-90=0
NO BUT JUST NO. UNDERSPECIFIED; MISTAKES "CONCLUDING" FOR "PROVING"...
the Fracker companies have stolen away in the night, leaving cleanup to the state or town
I have read about this on AlterNet!
How can "the fracker companies" steal away? Don't they have a mailbox address? Maybe they are linked to the Bush family?
