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.

Evidently they are coming for the LULZ
Keep your hair short.

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.
Why are the MASONIC lodges with connection to the TELECOMMUNICATIONS industry?
A baffled person demands to know!

As you arrive at the rendezvous, you notice that the weird people ... OH MY GOD, GREYS!
It reminds me of crop circles.

I feel an NSA charm offensive ripening ...
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.
Depending on your bus ride, either one or the other will get you thrown off at the next

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.
Yes, now it is too late to start the OBAMARINGWORLD project.
We are all doomed.
For me neither.
I'm gonna link the article to discussions on "weird science" websites as retaliation, then sit back while bizarre stuff appears in the comment section.
> 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.
And openboot please.
"Windows Server releases has a GUI-less mode"
Leaving admins stranded in front of screens with blinking prompts.
Seriously, does anyone use it? There is Console-over-IP these days, you know.
I never signed anything that said Target can keep my info
So did you give it to them or not? Maybe you are not even affected?
The chicken cries are starting to get a bit deafening in here.
It says "siphoned unencrypted", which may mean quite a few things, and not necessarily "stored unencrypted".
Target funds the politicians?
A likely story.
You could probably pack a few Marines into it and pop them over the pond for an immediate visit to Islamabad, maybe?
The biggest black project being Obama, and look how that turned out.
huge budgets, tons of consultants, a fragmented procurement strategy
Plus unrealistic goals due to political pressurizing.
All of this to fulfill democrats' fantasms about Prussian-Style Social-Democratic Centralized Healthcare For Everyone that no-one wants and no-wants to pay for.
After this, surely the next stop is federally mandated single-payer healthcare.
> the shite they have inflicted on the IT industry for the last 20 or so years
Really? I think back on to the horrors of getting the corner retailer sell me an acceptable PC that didn't look like it was assembled in the Soviet Union before mail-order came along. Granted things didn't fully keep the level during all the time.
What is the Total Benefit of Ownership (ownership of people? do I get this right?) of a salesforce that doesn't perform except in pleasuring red-tinged zombies calling for "jobs"?
.44 Magnum the most powerful handgun in the world
That's old school.
In the 21st you want the Smith & Wesson Model 500
I don't know what such power is good for. Maybe removal of the kebabs in the New Jersey governorate?
Anyway, I came here for the aliens, where are they.
Whatever happened to the HB Gary outfit, btw?
Reductio ad absurdum, bitches!
Only it's fully retarded. You should learn to handle your rhetorical devices.
Because hedgehog DNA is not very interesting to the device at hand (unless we are into witchcraft and other causal models with scant empirical support).
But core meltdown sure is.
That guy must be japanese!
Reminds me of the good old times when students unsullied by technology asked me to please indicate the whereabouts of the server's office.
Why so negative?
I'm sure if there is a good use for it, it will be found. Remember the "whole world needs 5 computers" stuff? Your imagination may well be less developed than it needs to be.
Here is a good use: politicial scoring: Hey watson, I have this letter here reported on the Daily Beast, "Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013"; here are the endorsers. Any of those faggots somehow related to PNAC? ... "Yes, Dave, they are all neocons and several have close ties to AIPAC, AEI and FDD."
And "the Chinese" have a quantum computer?
Rather, for IBM's cloud-based service to generate insights greater than the sum of an individual developer's contributed data
But that's not the goal of this system, right? It should be an "adviser system", so in the classical example of medicine, you have this set of information about a patient and you ask the watson what the hell is up with the patient; it will follow the text links through its medical dictionaries and papers and come up with a few hits. It's search. Will it be able to discover that the patient has two different problems? Possibly not. Can you bolt a probabilistic reasoning engine onto the side? Probably not. Should Doug Lenat be gotten out of retirement? Maybe yes.
