Re: All well and good.
But before going belly up the 3rd party will manage to send licensing costs trough the roof.
How many things that were at one point quite cheap are now a luxury ... starting with water ... just because the 3rd party lured you into thinking that watering your garden from the tap would be cheaper than having your well fitted with modern plumbing.
10 years to notice. UK.gov should blacklist itself.
I worked along with the awful lot : ICL-Fujitsu, EDS (now HP) and Cubic Transportation Systems for the OysterCard implementation back in 2002.
I never had and never have seen such a gathering of incompetent money wasters.
A $100 bn Cloud ...
The cloud : fail once fail everywhere !!! Amazon demonstrated it not that long ago. Lesson learned ???
Cloud vendors are like bankers : they are supposed to take care of your most precious belongings, you know how it turned out with bankers.
Migrate before ...
When is the last time someone did something before it's too late ???
There is no point in migrating something that runs fine to Win 7, the difficulty and costs will be the same migrating it to Win 9 or X.
If you add energy matters ... an XP PC will run on 85 W a Win 7 probably needs 120 Watts ... when a Celeron 700 MHz Win 98 25 Watts ... and frankly the less crap users can run on their PC the better.
A patent for a set of rules ...
"So now kids don't talk to strangers" TM
New patent from TFL OysterCard Rules : Swear while you swipe. Anytime you swear whilst swiping Boris gets a penny.
even your DNA ...
to protect my data ... well DNA tends to be leaked (pun intended).
Spend 1000's to save 100's
sure time is money, but implementing such a tiering may be time consuming and the horsepower and brains to do that costs money as well. Plus your DB may be locked because some old fart is updating their eerily old data on a very slow cassette tape.
Add that moving data back and forth may well end in losing it to a "I did not consider that potential failure" ...
I'm sure adding a faster disk array to an existing storage pool when filled up is more efficient ... so just dimension your storage for a 6 month period so you can enjoy the benefits of newer and faster tech for your newer data ...
1.3 1.4 2 4 5 6 what a turd ... after almost 20 years they finally introduced EJB 3.0 where you don't need to do all the tedious work to get a distributed object ... hardly !!!
Whoaw what an achievement, Forté Inc. had that in 1990, Forté was acquired by Sun ... and all those tossers could not even make a proper Java middleware out of the superb product that was Forté 4GL. Thinking that those Java turkeys are now an "industry" standard makes me sick.
The tablet effect is quite real
A tablet is the ultimate gizmo in the bludger's attire, right ahead of smartphone, people will always brag about the amount of (pretend) work they can now achieve on their tablet. Truth to be told most of computer users achieve sod all.
Apple just "happens" to have some classy visual designs and a very carefully designed pricing policy that makes their products a wee bit expensive but within reach of your already maxed out credit card ... which makes them even more desirable.
Plumbers not Coders
Govt should be investing in training plumbers not IT, it costs more to get a plumber than to get a code pisser.
But I need a shower unit more than I need a NHS IT system coz my GP does not need one to diagnose me.
-- The quality of IT candidates in the UK is extremely high and often underestimated --
And that is why we have some of the most brilliant and costliest world class failures.
An early edition of ...
He must have been bored to death in his complex.
- It's my patent !!
- No it's not !!
- Duh it is !!
Time to put the vindictive kids to bed.
Did Greenpeace used
a sootie powered computer or a pedal powered one ???
The Java Paradigm knock off
Ama-zone cloud : designed once fails everywhere.
I know bugger all about their design but I'd assume, to cut costs, they copied-pasted their zones (infrastructure, hardware, hypervisors, OS & software). Ooooh shit-ngle point of failure.
Hacked once hacked everywhere.
May be some are happy to (help) see them fail. Ooooh Pooh again.
Hope they'll choke
to death on the patent bulimia.
From progressive they all turn conservative, the only thing they are afraid of it someone else making monies out of one of patented snippets.
That demonstrates only one thing : innovation is not the aim (money is).
No 80/139/445 port
Total isolation is good too. And leaving the PC switched off is even better.
Luv it. Ready made excuse to do nothing on the job today ... and tomorrow .... and ...
Why not suing the car's manufacturer
as well, for wrongfully shaping to the side of his car.
SP1 will land in Q4 2010
or is it "SP1 will crash land in Q4 2010" ?
I don't deny or confirm W7 is working great, as I'm not using it, but will it take that long (Q4) before W7 emits some creaks at the seams???
I wouldnt want to be
Stoning to death an Orca type may kill you first.
Mine's got pebbles.
Giv' it back
Monty can you kindly propose $1 bn to Oracle so you can get your stuff back ... or kindly shut up.
Easy to say sorry ...
when you don't really mean it.
... I haven't been paying attention to MS orientations lately. In the world I belong to, MS is just a way to run legacy applications, and it is rather bad : XP/2003Server.
But, if MS is pissing off people that can't be a bad thing.
The only thing left ...
now is to remove the offending MS Office from the Earth.
Multi-core support ... because some IT directors think they can run their Enterprise Class Application in a browser.
That is the kind of stupidity that never ceases to amaze me. They fail to realize the Classy application will run in the same "context" as JS-pr0n ... that should worry them.
Stuck in time.
Well I'm still with MSVC++ 6 & .NET 2005 (well 2003 SP1) and that is the last one I'll ever use ... so M$ can issue any kind of sluggish MSVC++ they want ... the plank's been walked for us.
M$ is having a taste of their own medicine ... hope they get sued and publicly spanked for some other "mistakes" that haven't caught the public attention.
But will Win 7 matter enough to attract law suits ???
Massively huge box
joke most probably but still,
Sarko needs one tiny box for his body & soul and a massive one adjacent to it for his massively over inflated ego.
Two Trojans down.
"Two Trojans - a variant of Bredo and a banking trojan - failed to work on Win 7 machines."
Meaning APIs have changed and that many other things will turn out to be broken. Probably the Trojan's code is fixed already/
And I once promised
to never get wasted again ... well that went well ... for a couple of weeks.
If GlassFish is the fittest, that may turn to be a true promise, otherwise that is just not to scare the sheep away.
