Whilst I absolutely applaud the elimination of sexism in the software development culture, being "ashamed" of boobs is something feminism often rallies against. Simply saying "boobs" isn't supposed to be offensive to women. Boobs exist. Shrug. (What usually follows at this point is a stream of comments saying "I'm a woman and I thought it was funny": http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/14955.html)
Now, who's going to use the VM ID 0xFA7D1CC5 ?
Up to a point.
Up to a point throwing hardware at a problem is cheaper than hiring developers. That point is relative to what you're building, of course.
Teamwork for the win!
Finally, people actually working together on things...
Why, god, why bother?
I haven't figured out the point.
"10 million tracks" is not a lot in terms of absolute catalogue. It'll be all the same (popular) content as every other MP3 store, only less of it, as their deals settle in to line. 7digital and iTunes, and even Amazon MP3, have way way more - and still don't cater effectively to the long tail, who has to go to smaller stores such as Beatport or DJDownload to get what they need.
Even then, there's really no point without an effective referral scheme and integration with music discovery websites such as Last.fm or Spotify, where people go to FIND new music.
HMV should have done this ten years ago, or invested in someone who knows what they're doing, like 7digital.
See me what?
It all sounds rather exhibitionist to me.
3 years? try 10:
dates back to 1998 and deals with the same vulnerability.
Isn't this just called "stream compression" - like zip/lzh/etc?
LZH and friends are a family of "data deduplication algorithms"; huffman coding and all that jazz are based on well established principles of information theory, which is based around "de-duplicating" repeated data.
So, HP have a tape compression system. What's new about that exactly, apart from the name?
TLB fix = disabling the L3 cache
I was under the impression that enabling the B2 fix basically just disables the entire L3 cache; therefore you almost certainly want this fix DISABLED for a Phenom B3 otherwise it won't perform much better than a B2.
What a marvellous article!
I think the conclusions drawn on Facebook are bollocks, frankly - your comments on the usefulness of Facebook have the same ring to them as a 45-year old mother bitching about how TopShop has nothing in her size. But despite that, I think the article's well written and hilariously so, therefore I approve anyway.
In the same breath he's said that he won't get paid from the music and that his licensing and merchandising is second to none.
Many record labels and acts are actually putting out music as a loss-leader now, knowing that it getting pirated is a good promotional tool, and that the real money is in tours, live shows and performance royalties.
why twice every 894 and not once every 447?
erm, if you think about it, it should be obvious!
Uranus goes round the sun, so there will be two times at which it's aligned edge on with the sun (once on each side). But Earth goes around the sun too, so those two points at which earth sees uranus edge on, again once on each side, will vary with an uneven period between them, although definitely twice within a longer period. of 894 years. apparently.
And what about all those times when it's edge on but the sun's in the way?
...or it didn't happen.
"We are not against piracy" ?
Does that mean they're for piracy?
So it's an LG branded Nokia N80 then?
I love this review. It reads to me as:
"Hi! It has GOOGLE pre-installed."
*picture of girls*
"It does all the things you'd expect of a phone!"
*picture of girls*
"It's pretty much just like a Nokia!"
*picture of girls with Google*
"Girl's not included."
