I hope you came up with this yourself.
This shall be remedied forthwith, I hope. It's like not making a joke about the holocaust.
“You know, you learn in business school that you need the right CEO for different phases of a company. Clint Eastwood said famously in Magnum Force: 'A man's got to know his limitations'. MSD [Michael Dell seems] unaware of his.”
A strong statement. I don't see this at all. How exactly doesn't Michael Dell know his limitations?
It announced the move in a US Securities and Exchange Commission filing, and confirmed that de Castro would be given severance benefits.
I misread that as "would be given severe benefits".
What's wrong with me.
The suspects were arrested before any preparations for an attack were put together.
Frankly, is this another "incite idiots to talk stupid, then arrest them under terrorist offences" kinda shit blue forces are pulling all over nowadays?
Also, should have used Truecrypt with hidden vaults.
You must understand that quantum devices are of no fecking use against good old 3DES or any symmetric cipher.
So stop whining and become your own boss.

I hear the working standards in some amazon warehouses are deplorable.
Yep, I heard that people are actually being forced to WORK there. It's frankly horrific,
John Carr, an IAM spokesperson, said Amazon had worked hard to ensure that staff didn't go for unionisation, in a statement carried by Delaware Online, Reuters and others.
And this is bad how?
"The workers at Amazon faced intense pressure from managers and anti-union consultants hired to suppress this organising drive,”
It didn't go my way. It must be a conspiracy!!
Get with the program, gramps.
I, for one, welcome them!
Why does Boeing even exist! It's not like they DO anything. How hard can it be to build planes with functioning batteries. My iPhone has one and it doesn't burn at all. Pretty clear that they knowingly cut corners and put lives in danger in search for excessive profit made on the back of exploited proletarians, quite a bit of which is anyway coming from taxpayers: subsidies and ruinously expensive contracts that the military-cretinous complex thinks it wants to gift itself. And now the bureaucrats and their immense oracles of deep knowledge have to be called in to check it AGAIN - for the Nth time. Does Boeing think these people are available on call? It's outrageous.
Feasible, though a test rig / lab experience seems to be called for. I am not sure the raid hardware knows about trim commands for instance.
"The People's Republic of China is a totalitarian dictatorship which oppresses its people in general and minorities in particular; it menaces the liberty of the people of Taiwan."
Yeah, so what are you gonna do about it? Cruise around with yer faggot Carrier Battle Groups like a German Kaiser steaming around in front of Murocco?
I may remind you that it was the US that invented the plan to kill 250 million chinese as collateral damage by "bomb as you go" SAC sorties -- in case of a war with Russia, You can never be too sure.
Now shut up, admire how PRC finances the US government and go brownnose the progessive Hillary-Obama duo. Maybe you can get a fine job in their "Pivot to Asia" program.
Are you jesuiting and scarequoting around like that when your doctor tells you to stop drinking, too?
> We need to change the law to create an offence of "ideologically supporting terrorism"
We need to change the law to allow law-and-order commenters that are a bit cuckcoo to be handed over to the tender mercies of LA police officers who can then leisurely taser-torture them and beat them to death on camera.
Now, wait. It think it is already changed...
"We don't know why the attacks are coming."
Evidently they are coming for the LULZ
Your wifebeater, sir!
I hope your are not actually in charge of procurement.
Recompliation ain't never gonna push your code to the GPUs, mon.
Keep your hair short.
it may achieve a quicker resolution overall
It sure got Jews out of Vienna quickly, back in the day.
Cab licenses and permits help enforce standards of service. In general, cabs needs to be clean and well-maintained, drivers fit, properly licensed and trained, and fares assessed fairly and clearly posted. Service should be prompt, swift, and direct within reason and non-discriminatory.
ITT: People who actually believe that "licenses" and "permits" enforce "standards" (well, they DO enforce high prices and enable taxation).
Brands and customer discernement should "enforce" things nicely, thank you very much.
And sometimes I would like to exchange a cheap unregulated ride that is dirty for an mind-blowingly expensive one that is clean but has a grumpy driver complaining about how I want to only go 5 miles to boot.
People downvoting this are probably also the first that cry about "discrimination" when an indian takes their lousy job.
You can do it yourself, now.
Stand up. Then sit down again.

Sources in the information security industry are telling El Reg that the Target breach involved installing malware on point-of-sale systems, a theory that's consistent with media statements by Target chief exec Gregg Steinhafel over the weekend.
Will the quick-to-call-for-the-gallows-crowd tone down this time, please?
It's tiresome how The Big H is always the worstest guy though. Sure he is bad and he had unhinged state employees clustering around him and enabling him, but ....
Picture a black-and-white photo showing Churchill, Roosie and Hitler at Berchtesgaden discussing the next step in the so far successful war against Stalin.
It wouldn't have happened because Churchill was an irredeemable hater of all things german (even before WWI), but otherwise - not out of place at all. Just a little twist to history.
The good thing is you can justify BOTH as an impulse buy.

You are assuming free markets with perfect information, which don't exist.
I assume no such thing. Well, okay, I assume somewhat free markets otherwise the plan is to buddy up to some politician for some protectionism, quotas, regulations or creation of a "free trade 'zone'". But for that you need to be a big fish.
All of what you say is included in the statement "there is no such thing as a fair price"; you have to find the market and the correct price for that market (or the market has to find you). Yes, taking risks is part of the package.
sales people that can get a fair price for the product
Sorry, fair prices don't exist.
The above means either that there are simply no customers for that particular product (demand is filled by cheaper products that are good enough) or that one cannot compete with other providers because the production costs are simply too high (demand is filled by equally good or even better products that are cheaper).
...but 30 years already? This is bad.
Did anyone ever find any documentation about that machine in real life in continental Yurop?
If thrown in our direction at near lightspeed, it would hit tomorrow.
> years to get ARM chip to be capable of running server loads
AC says: Alpha had an idiot running the company in charge of chip (and most system) development, an idiot who mistakenly chose to trust Intel ("IA64 will be technically far superior to Alpha") and Microsoft ("yes we'll do NT/Alpha properly") rather than trust his own company's people.
Let's be precise here. This is a rich and deep history, filled with tragedy:
0) 1989: HP investigates VLIW instruction sets, called EPIC
2) Serial Big Mistakes by DEC under Kenneth Olsen in marketing Alpha (and anything else) ;
3) DEC is increasingly going pear-shaped, sheds divisions ;
4) HP partners with Intel to build the IA-64 as it judges that proprietary microprocessors are not the future; goal is to deliver "Merced" by 1998 ;
5) May 18, 1998: After a hard patent battle with Intel, DEC agrees to support IA-64 architecture and Intel agrees to manufacture DEC's Alpha processors. Sour Alpha engineers leave for AMD and Sun. Intel has acquired StrongARM from DEC but those engineeres also leave ;
6) The rump of DEC gets acquired by Compaq, which has only modicum of interest in Alpha. They are into growing their PC market.
7) Compaq's PC shit deflates bigtime, leaving unsold inventory rotting at the docks, Eckhard Pfeiffer ousted. CEO Michael Capellas is uninterested in Alpha, stops development of NT on Alpha on August 23, 1999. Samsung and IBM sign Alpha manufacturing deals with Compaq.
8) March 2000: Easy-money fuelled dotcom bubble bursts, Greenspan unrepentant, gives a f*ck.
9) June 25, 2001: Compaq announces complete shift of their server solutions from Alpha to IA-64 architecture by 2004. The Alpha Microprocessor Division is disbanded and moved to Intel. Samsung and IBM stop producing Alphas. Andrew Orlowski had one or two good ones on Don Capellas' Alphacide back in the day.
10) June 2001: "Itanium" (i.e. Merced) released by Intel ; where are the compilers ?
11) September 3, 2001: Hewlett-Packard announces its intention to acquire Compaq (because HP's Carly Fiorina couldn't acquire PricewaterhouseCoopers for $18 billion USD, so this must be a displacement activity). A long battle to convince the HP shareholders that this is actually a good idea begins.
12) September 11, 2001: Bush is minding his own business cutting shrubberies in Crawford, Texas, when suddenly a great call for Glorious Presidency is heard across the soon-to-called-thus "Homeland". God bless!
13) October 21, 2001, API (the workstation manufacturer) throws in the towel on Alpha systems and transfers all rights to support Alpha systems (including warranty service) to Microway,
14) May 2002: Merger of HP and Compaq is given the go-ahead. Don Capellas becomes president of the post-merger HP, but soon moves on to the burning crater of MCI Worldcom (USD 11 billion of fraud, a record back then) on November 12. 2002, to lead its acquisition by Verizon.
