"serious commentators or the Register".
Oh my God Particle!!
Better than when irate islamists are allowed to design school furniture, I'm sure.
It turns out that Winston Smith was working in the spelling department.
I hoped this would seqgue into a hot sisterly lesbian sexxor, but no.
At least in the UK, that might well fall foul of Section 3 and/or Section 3A of the Computer Misuse Act (1990)
But if done from Russia you would just get some pornographic moaning about "Russian invasions" from the PM and sophomoric snarkiness on Twitter from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, all of which can just be relegated to the background noise of Modern Living.
1) For some reason the DC must be near Cannes (cheap hydroelectric energy?) and have a special luxury hotel for tired sysadmins
2) Promise to invite the people in charge to organize extended tours at repeat intervals no longer than six months for monitoring purposes
And we should not have hosting contracts more than two years, as the cost [of hosting] is halving every 18 months.
This can be effortlessly spun into "Wise government industrial policy helps create the industry that gives us powerful means of becoming the future technology hub of $WORLD, helps us manage contracts to get maximum value for taxpayer money and also keeps inflation in check so much that there is a danger of deflation which, however is being looked after by the independent Central Bank."
The "server version" is actually the only acceptable version.
If they could just reduce the needless emphasis on the graphical muhser interface.
Performance. It's "Performance".
Because of the fast size of the full snapshots
Looks like there is some kind of special relativity of IT at work, rotating bytes/s into TiB values?
They are "just" particular mixes of particular quarks, in the same family as protons as neutrons.
We want to enumerate all of these, so it is good to have confirmation that these particular states of three.quark bindings exist (as expected) and to be able to measure their masses and decay modes to complete empirical lists and look for surprises.

In-house stuff fails too, and then you don't get the skills to get it back up again, or worse. You know "database corrupted, where is the backup ZOMG it says 'Monday' on that tape, wait the amount of dust on this shelf says that..... NOOOOOO!"
Clouds mean everyone gets burnt at the same time and the Internet must work and you also better have a local backup just in case.
But in all cases, it's just choose your poison.
Does it have European presence though?
No-one cares what they are saying.
Prison Delivery as a Service?
Nominal Romanians checking out dog presence and access possibilities from the control van, more like.
So much political grandstanding. Especially from those "Democrats" that used be in charge not so long ago and are now crocodile tearing. Don't believe any of those arseholes.
"WATERED DOWN TO THE POINT OF IRRELEVANCE" or "IT'S ALL BULLSHIT AND SOMA" is the correct description.
Did Ballmer fart in the general direction of the security team and fetchez la vache onto them and is Nadella resurrecting it?
On the other hand, I heard the dudes in security would be folded into marketing or something? Has this order of High Pointyhairedness been belayed?
Please go on....
And you'd be wrong
You, sir, are a clueless bag of vapid hot air and you should start to educate yourself.
as the fact that you can call the president a moron without any fear of any repercussion shows
"Being able to be a clown in public shows that we are free" and other illuminating commentary from the shit-for-brains-producing ideological stuffing.
Be along now.
One is a functioning democracy with rule of law and free speech, the other is a fascist dictatorship without rule of law or free speech.
I will pass and demand my right to call a relative by phone to help me answer this question.
It's like Bad Santa has finally arrived outside of Hollywood movies.
clandestine Russian spacecraft
What you say? Clandestine? Not cleared with the American Empire? Unacceptable! HARDER SANCTIONS NOW, BOOTS ON THE GROUND, ALL OPTIONS ON THE TABLE (except sexual ones, probably).
Seriously, does a nation need to contat an international clearinghouse dealing in space stuff? I suppose it's a good idea to phone ahead to other nations of a launch lest someone push the red button in undue haste, but apart from that?
Wasn't Gaydar the guy how Really Has No Luck At All on Battlestar Galactica?

That's Philip K. Dick levels of paranoia. You can't check for that.
To put that another way: if we know that a quantum computer can be made to outperform a classical machine, we've got a bit more confidence that the research money isn't being wasted.
We DO know the former. If it turns out that for some as-yet-unknown reasons, the QC actually does NOT manage to follow the mathematical description of QM, that would be monster spectacular and open the road for re-evaluation. Shurely not a waste of money one way or the other.

”The theory cannot be expressed pictorially and mere words mean nothing” (Heisenberg)
A those nuggets of the wise ancients, like alchemical musings they are. Just add mandragore.
The quantum mechanical formalism doesn't support our intuition, nor does it elucidate the key concepts that govern the behaviour of the entities that are subject to the laws of quantum physics. The arrays of complex numbers are kin to the arrays of 0s and 1s of the early days of computer programming practice. In this review we present steps towards a diagrammatic `high-level' alternative for the Hilbert space formalism, one which appeals to our intuition. It allows for intuitive reasoning about interacting quantum systems, and trivialises many otherwise involved and tedious computations. It clearly exposes limitations such as the no-cloning theorem, and phenomena such as quantum teleportation. As a logic, it supports `automation'. It allows for a wider variety of underlying theories, and can be easily modified, having the potential to provide the required step-stone towards a deeper conceptual understanding of quantum theory, as well as its unification with other physical theories. Specific applications discussed here are purely diagrammatic proofs of several quantum computational schemes, as well as an analysis of the structural origin of quantum non-locality. The underlying mathematical foundation of this high-level diagrammatic formalism relies on so-called monoidal categories, a product of a fairly recent development in mathematics. These monoidal categories do not only provide a natural foundation for physical theories, but also for proof theory, logic, programming languages, biology, cooking, ... The challenge is to discover the necessary additional pieces of structure that allow us to predict genuine quantum phenomena.
”Cultural anxieties during 1920s Germany were ultimately the reason why the founders of Quantum Mechanics placed randomness at the centre of their theory”.
This bodes well for new advances in the early 21st century, where permanent observation, economic and cultural upheavals and the death throes of the american empire are sure to lead to new metaphors.
Why is studying random details with no sense and meaning good for him?
Might as well study the slightly wrong decimal expansion of Pi to 10'000 digits.
spends roughly two hours a day studying Microsoft's operating system
He's a goner.
Well, you can get both now, plus sourly commuters pressed into Métro like SAUCISSONS, and possibly gang fights / a stolen wallet / extremely overpriced coffee / taxis shamelessly fleecing you / CRS feeling, if not beating you up because you were caught near a protest action by Force Ouvrière.
It's like Upper Volta with a Tour Eiffel.
80% of it's mission
How are these 80% measured and are they like the perennial "80% of the software project is done now, I swear!"?
which outer solar system mission would you rather was abandoned completely so that this mission might be able to get a small amount of additional science done?
Because pols and green freaks can't find their arse with both hands we are left with the choice:
"Do you want to suck a lot or to suck a whole lot?"
(And protest placards will go up in any case while much handwringing will occur in the corridors of power and questions are asked whether that Europa probe might not be better powered with renewable energies)
"The shirt I wore this week … I made a big mistake, and I offended many people and I am very sorry about this,"
Tell all those motherfuckers off, dude! Seriously, punch them in their fucking FACE even the FEMALES. These zombified people wouldn't even DARE to say something from behind their assorted neurotic complexes when you met them in the street.
Am I being unduly influence by Amurrican reporting?
