Redmond, naturally, thinks it's the best positioned of all the public cloud providers to offer services to agencies, having taken a number of measures to ensure that its government offering meets strict standards.
Fantastic marketing-speak for "now open to all comers"!.
Offshore. Developers. Writing code. Cheaply. Quickly.
Then your license fee is increased.
I have overheard on the loo that cow-orkers are still wont to use these as it gives them "superior productivity", like a good laxative.
vulnerability in the Windows graphics system that could allow a malformed JPEG image to let an attacker read off sensitive system information
I am old enough to remember when claims of getting the clap via JPEGs was considered a joke on Usenet.
And don't get me started on the "sand molecules".
“This simulation reproduces the fundamental physics governing particle motion thresholds on Titan.”
I love analog computers!
The "sand" on Titan is unlikely to be the same as what we find by the sea in Brighton. What exactly it is made from remains uncertain, but boffins think that rather than crushed up shells or grit...
Dead nanomachines? I'm not saying it is aliens, but...
Carlsberg. Probably the best beer in the Home Galaxy.
RAID rebuilds take too long and disk failure likelihood during a rebuild increases with rebuild time. That pointed Exablox towards object technology but with filer access.
The OneBlox filer involves customers buying an empty 8-slot Oneblox node with 4 x 1GbitE ports, at $10K list, and populating it with 3.5-inch disk drives which the Exablox OS turns into a filer resource using an underlying object storage technology. All the management is cloud-based and the system discovers new nodes and adds them into a clustering scheme, the OneBlox Ring, using peer-to-peer technology.
I see the "not a RAID thing" but I don't see the "disk failure likelihood during a rebuild does not increase with rebuild time." If your disk croaks, new copies of the objects previously on that disk need to be created from the objects elsewhere on the system. A subsequent disk croak will still propel your data into never-never land.
Good forks get subsumed back into the mainstreams. Bad forks wither on the vine.
Competition is the universe's only way to get rid of the crud.
(This is why people tend to design ways to get rid of competition.)
Holy damn my week starts off well!
Most likely no unless Python and PHP are really recompiled to Java then run on the Google-specific virtual machine. But then again, there shure will be other problems and integrity violations. A person knowledgeable in Googgggle AppEngine needs to provide info.
(Also: No AppEngine for Erlang? DISCRIMINATORY!)
I guess it is to remind the person who originally posted it on the Microsoft story that every platform has security issues.
Alzheimer's is a terrible disease.
Fetchez la vache!
In other news, the paper is called "Les Échos". "L'Écho" is another one and "L'Echos" not very correct.
The problem is, we just don't know.
Sony has been battling yet another DDoS of its PlayStation Network ... Hacktivist group the Lizard Squad claimed responsibility for the latest security breach
In the same way that bludgeoing a car to scrap metal with a sledgehammer is not carjacking, a DDoS crapout is not a "security breach".
you do know that your details -including whatever you used to pay for the subscription- is now in the hands of whoever cares to download the data, right?
Random affirmations on the Internet.
Actually, it can be done (but is not yet):
In the paper we have shown that autonomous spacecraft navigating with pulsars is feasible when using either phased-array radio antennas of at least 150 m² antenna area or compact light-weighted X-ray telescopes and detectors, which are currently developed for the next generation of X-ray observatories. Using the X-ray signals from millisecond pulsars we estimated that navigation would be possible with an accuracy of ±5 km in the solar system and beyond. The error is dominated by the inaccuracy of the pulse profiles templates that were used for the pulse peak fittings and pulse-TOA measurements. As those are known with much higher accuracy in the radio band, it is possible to increase the accuracy of pulsar navigation down to the meter scale by using radio signals from pulsars for navigation.
They don't use angular measurement, just pulse timing ... I have to think about his this works.

BBC Interviewer: "Good afternoon, Hal. How's everything going?"
Hal: "Good afternoon, Mr. Amor. Everything is going extremely well."
"7KG". Seven Kosher Gravitational Constants?
That's enough to make anyone go all kabballistic!
Much obliged, my good fellow!
It's the young ones. Today, they want to get paid to get fed, then give people a hard time by driving around on mall scooters ...
Hell yeah. Better put a few old newspapers around it first to contain the grease runoff.
local brews Sagres or Super Bock are the only true path to Francesinha nirvana
STAY THE HELL AWAY. If need be, import acceptable stuff from Belgium or Germany.
How Einstein Ruined Physics
I don't see this at all. Finally serious math where it should be!
A healthy dose of realist cynicism, I see. Carry on!
Hmm .... BRINGING CHALLENGING FEMINIST SCIENCE FICTION TO THE DEMANDING READER? Oh, okay then.
But can I read this in the pub while everyone around me is going through the societally-demanded motions of ethanol-fuelled silliness required for the post-black-friday days?
It's because the speed of light today is pretty low when moving across the pond and airlines actually use hyperjump a bit past the Açores to get to the shores of Amurricaland. They are just not telling the customers because the reality of transdimensional jumps would be disturbing to the peace of mind of some. "Virgin Galactic", right? You think Branson might be up to something?
This whole affair makes it appear the human race has taken several giant steps backward.
Err... anon... let me tell you about that Saddam Hussein business.... currently in the "extended blowback" phase...
The size of the team and the fact that passwords were listed unencrypted in files named "passwords" is worrying to some.
Only to some?
This industry, much to learn, it has!
Juche? No, just to poor grammar and S&M porn movies.
No, but it's dark at the moment.
So it's business as usual then, just more of it.
The boys in blue with guns and badges will be around to make sure you obey the laws written in special code open to interpretation by pill-popping octogenarians and all-age harpies of the male and female sort, all of them minding other people's business for their own good. Meanwhile you will be under the automated ever-watchful eye of the algorithm, bayesian or otherwise.
Of course, you will also pay for all of that.
I suggest people awail themselves to some media disinformation and popular culture dross to upgrade their happiness index. We also don't want the economy reeling on destructive interventionism to tone done the festive feeling of Buy Everything Day.
> You don't have to mix with economy class plebs
That's what he is saying
The Donetsk Referendum:
"Do you support the declaration of state independence of the Donetsk People's Republic?"
Amazingly, no mention of Russia.
I suspect you are making things up.
And now back to work! Do you think this economy is gonna fix itself?
No trolls were fed in this orbital extravaganza.
> I hope the Russians will understand how to deal with it before soon
He is also very popular. And a better politician than the barely acceptable self-styled neurotic world saviours we happen to have on offer. Could be these things are related.
I'd rather them blow tax money on Orion
I hate to tell you but no-one is even asking you about whether you like to see this or that done with the taxdollars that your kids will have to pay back.
Yeah, "Orion" is nice (for some values of nice), but so would be Petunias on every balcon of Washington, D.C.
Full disclosure: I would vote for it (or at least something in the general direction of it), if I could and the money was on the table.
There is nothing wrong with Russia.
Also, thank you taxpayer of the future.
How about the one about anonymous coward and the cattle prod?
> Perhaps you can think of a few, if you try.
Deranged people who for some reason feel the pressing need to loudly declare their non-allegiance to Microsoft come to mind.
Hah! Downvotes from Microsoft grass rooters don't faze me. Give it up.
I am glad to hear that.
But next you will be telling me that trolling and the sad reality about anything "Microsoft" can actually be distinguished in a finite amount of time?
So what's gonna happen in January when support for Win7 ends
In this case, why believe that this word has the significance one usually attaches to it?
"Crazy prepared", then?
They must have hored Pham Nuwen himself.
"My country publicly declared that it would follow international norms banning hacking and piracy."
Can't find it in any MiniEducation-approved shop? Piracy sorted!
but they do all this amazing slingshot actions with satellites to speed them up on their way off to the far reaches on the solar system...
Unfortunately, the Big Jupiter is on the OTHER side of Mars...
