These DOJ guys really come with dim-light arguments...
Sounds like a random "Smoking Mushroom" argument all over again.

Loud Howard, is that you?
boost both revenues and headcount by two to four times over the next year
Like a hormonally imbalanced chicken, this kind of super-growth just leads to a dysfunctional mess of a company and a fast, lucrative IPO.
"migraine, nausea, tinnitus, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, feelings of ‘pressure’"
Sounds like my workday allright, if you add the pressure from "URGENT!++" mails.
I would also quarrel with the adjective "mathematically". That would imply there is a mathematical logic system having total true/false values in there. What we want to read is "predicted to exist based on error-laden observational data of orbital perturbations"
So how's that gonna work?
"Here is the source code, you can audit it to your heart's content. It's a hairball of historical accidents with lots of bullshit crammed into the kernel that shouldn't even be there in the first place, you may want to do a very precise audit because we not entirely sure what some of that code does ourselves. But you have an army of top Microsoft OS specialists and gigabytes of traceable requirements, right, to make this more than an exercise in pretend due diligence?
When you are done, we will compile it for you ...
FYI, corporates, governments, etc. do get to check / audit the MS source code anyway.
Uh-huh. Yeah. Sure.
If someone is able to run arbitrary code on your server you are already hosed.
Seriously? Is this a new meme or what?
Remind me again why multi-user systems were invented in the first place? Yes, OS/360. Multics, that kind of shit.
So 40 years of work on OS results in "throwing up of hands / tipping the table" in the comment section.
Might as well shut down this "industry" because it must be a retardcart, really.
That's a new one.

“Business sentiment toward Windows 10 looks very good, because it is not just relevant to the device but the IT department in terms of bigger projects around cloud, security and mobility”
I hope people are not getting paid for emitting this nonsense.
Dark matter comets. Ejected from gammay-ray bursting white holes!
F-type means the star is hotter than our sun
That's right, but it could be anything from hypergiant to dwarf star. We need more info about this "K" baby.
Many wonderful treasures are saved in the Harvard plates, but the reality is that the current generation of astronomers are mostly unaware of their existence. J. Grindlay has started and lead the work to completely digitize all ≈500,000 plates (Grindlay et al. 2012; Tang et al. 2013). His program is called Digital Access to a Sky Century @ Harvard (DASCH) . The products are top-quality digitization for each plate (plus the envelope, plate markings, and logbook entry), plus fully-calibrated magnitudes for each stellar image on the plate. Currently, DASCH has completed only ≈15% of the Harvard archives, and this includes all the plates covering the original Cygnus/Lyra Kepler field.
fast-track engineering for anyone to encircle a star in just 100 years
There is a galactic IKEA just 2 parsec away
Starve, make unliveable, occupy, control, lock down, settle, hope it dies by itself....
Anything Windows looks like a highly suspicious application.
Considering how the mob controlled telephone switching gear in Las Vegas, I would not even START with a Windows installation in place.
Sorry, can't help. You may want to contact other outfits ready to take on a disgusting, unmanageable hairball.
The Nazi used that kind of unstable highly dangerous rocket fuel because they were desperate.
We had this stupid shit in the last thread. Fuck off, troll, die under a bridge.
For reference: Wehrmacht used Alcohol (from potatoes) + LOX. Here we are using Kero + LOX. None of these is "unstable".
The remaining fuel sloshing around in the tanks might be a problem with this manoeuver worthy of a dolphin. And how do you get the gravity center far below buoyancy center so that the engines STAY in the aire?
The problem with going into seawater is the seawater. Don't get it into the engines.
Retrieving the rocket? You will have to pull the upturned rocket out and basically cut of the maybe-not-empty tank section while the house-sized stage is hanging off a crane. In open seas. Not fun.
> flexible webbing to catch it as it falls a short distance
The barge would have to be very large, the webbing very tough and able to withstand fire from above and the 1st stage able to sustain sudden lateral compression (plus major forces in a few points along the webbing lines) as it settles and topples
> docking clamp system with room for error
Again, a very large docking system would be needed, and the likelyhood of wrecking the first stage and the docking system both would be very high. An expensive loss..
Keep it simple! If you have a rocket engine on the object-to-land, use it!
Cool people don't even look at explosions. They just put on their shades and walk away while the fire warms the back of their tuxedo.
Neither Marx hoovering up communist lore and writing economically ignorant gibberish nor The Prophet had been invented yet back then.
"This is crazy in a box with a side order of fries"
TFW you realize that Luke was a teenager and should have been in fucking high school along with his sister.
You can't see further than the moment when the universe was opaque and mixing the light quite tremendously.
This is what the CMB is: the light that started free-traveling as the universe became transparent, a few million years after GRIDFIRE EVERYHWERE (aka Big Bang)
The other possibility is that it was just beam focused towards us, same as with gamma-ray bursts which apparently are not omnidirectional because that would imply ludicrous amounts of wattage; they are just doing a lighthouse impressions.
it's 3.8 billion light years away, meaning it's also 3.8 billion years old
The part that we see is 3.8 billion years young than whatever is "now", or maybe a little bit less seeing how space expansion is accelerating, not sure about that.
Latin was hell though.
I never got what Cicero was effing talking about.
the explosion occurred 3.8 billion light years away
In a rescaled picture, if Andromeda Galaxy is 2.5 mm away, that would be a whooping 3.8m away.
There is a LOT of Galaxies and Galaxy Filaments between us and that. Definitely a challenge for any Space Knights looking for a Space Holy Grail.
If Clarke were right, these things would be unobservable because the expanding bubble of vacuum decaying to a lower-energy state (thus liberating free energy while changing subatomic physics to something totally unknown) will be following in the wake of of the expanding bubble of light at a picosecond interval. You will never even know what popped your Standard Model.
That's the fun part!
This has been discussed at lenth (and competent) in the comments on the article announcing the Two-Tim-spacewalk a couple of days ago.
So it seems to be about reducing suit stiffness due to high internal pressure.
This means you have to increase the oxygen content in breathable air to keep partial pressure of Oxygen constant.
Helium is used to replace Nitrogen in high-pressure environments because Nitrogen has toxic effects on the nervous system at high pressures. So this is not useful here. Using Helium also increases the problem of outgassing ("the bends") when pressure falls, so this is even less useful.
So this is all about a slow decompression to get to spacesuit-agreeable low-pressure while avoiding outgassing while keeping partial pressure of oxygen constant.
Maybe one should switch to Arthur C. Clarke rigid suits...
Astronauts have to purge nitrogen from their blood for hours by huffing pure oxygen before suiting up to avoid getting the bends
Is the pressure of the suits significantly lower than the one in the ISS? shouldn't the astronauts also decompress to suit pressure while living in the pure oxygen atmosphere (otherwise they will get oxygen poisoning)? Ho about using He/O mixtures then?
Roger! Waters in the spacesuit...
Airline pilots used to be ex military pilots and knew how to fly the plane.
WWII is effing long ago though.
The IT industry is on an interesting cusp as people who joined the industry in the still-pioneering 1960/70s are now retiring. With them goes a lot of wide and deep knowledge about what the evolved technology does - and why.
At first I thought "what a crock". But then I looked around me and found that not many IT people around me (and even at uni) are/were interested in system design, engineering basics, information processing basics, history of computing and the classics from the 80s or even the mathematics that you actually need to think about the systems in front of you. The assumption seems to be that somebody else does the hard job and good stuff appears from an information-generating magical font. We'll just overpromise and rake in money while outsourcing coding to offshore fly-by-night outfits. A recipe for disaster.
In the cockpit, nobody knows that you are just a dog.
This is the "Children of the Magenta" problem.

I hear Xanax helps with social anxiety disorders.
1) That's not how it works
2) There is confusion between agile delivery of the scrum sort and "dev ops"
3) This is not how agile is supposed to be done; it'a about having feeback on a pipeline of short actions (as opposed to a long stovepipe of large actions); it is not about ramming half-processed stuff into operations at fixed intervals. Plus building the artifacts that keep the mutating product in the "requirements funnel".
Where does CD fit in when bugs mean deaths and gaol sentences?
Nothing changes. If anything, you should have HIGHER assurance that your latest bowel movement meant to control information processing actually does what it says on the tin and that all requirements are being met.
creating an irresistible honeypot for criminals
That would mean this attackable infrastructure was actually a trap.
But it's actually the real deal: a low-hanging fruit.
The solution will be to add a few "Priority 1" projects to the engineer's desks, to add to the pile of the other "priority 1" projects, some of which are even "urgent".
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
It's also subject to authentic shit management.
I really hope the French public haven't forgotten how to be politically difficult, because they usually do a pretty good job of it.
LOLNO. Only if the EURO injections from Le Gouvernement are not forthcoming or the corruption becomes so evident that fish heads are rotting under politician's canapés. Otherwise, it's Le Gallic Shrug.
i CAN HARDLY WAIT TO SEE THIS IMPLEMENTED!
> Perhaps something like ship's log should be kept for orders handed down
It's called a JIRA
Nautilus is really an amazing magazine. Every paper issue is a work of art in itself and there are no addies. I don't know how they do it.
I recently came across a short biography of Walter Pitts, which I had only so far seen mentioned in a textbook on Neural Networks and maybe in a book by Marvin Minsky.
Also, this review reads like it has been written by "jake", how come?
