Twitter recently acquired MoPub, which is a mobile advertising exchange. This probably has more to do with that than writing an app for reading tweets.

I once tried to chart 65k timeseries values. I think I started back in October. It's still at it
Re: I'm free!
You can install windows on a new motherboard.
There's a program somewhere (spui maybe) that displays a set of numbers and a freefone number to call. You enter the numbers and it gives you back some more. Enter those in that program earlier and windows is activated again. It's all free, no human interaction, and takes about 5 mins.
Re: Can anyone recall me
It actually allows loads of concurrent connections because it uses the libuv library, which is asynchronous.
Apache is pretty much outdated. The conf settings are bizarre, the multi-process model might have been relevent in 1995 and you end up having to faff with shared memory. One thread per request... please.
Try find sample code that reads a request body... WTF is a brigade...
The documentation is woeful
Re: Weren't the encryption docs kept secret and only available to "qualified" GSM implementors?
I seem to recall hearing about them increasing the key length only to have French Govt insist on the new bits being zeroes.
Re: Its the kernel
Re: Unknown source of kernel lock-ups?
It would depend on the severity of the bug really. One that causes a CPU lock-up would, in my mind at least, be a showstopper.
Unknown source of kernel lock-ups?
And it's being released anyway!? Sounds like something Adobe would do
If they don't already, YouTube will only increment the view count on completed plays. Numberphile/SixySymbols did a video on it. There's also an 'off-by-one' bug where the view count is listed as 301 for a while instead of 300 until YT do their number crunching to determine the real view count
Re: A money burning exercise
Frustratingly, the Linux ecosystem has nothing that comes near to Visual Studio
There have been DNS issues with running on AWS for ages now even when all connections are internal to AWS
are poeple still using this stupid phrase?
Re: Sounds like a recipe for disaster.
£54k after tax isn't pittance, especially in Thailand
Patching is hard
There's more to it than blindly fixing the issue, you also have to make sure your fix doesn't break anything else - which is something Microsoft is very, very good at.
When I upgraded Ubuntu to Trusty it actually borked the OS.
You just know there are politicans across the EU just waiting to implement something like this.
He walked away with millions and a divorce. That's a typical CEO.
Seriously though, Nokia had crippled its ability to deliver long before Elop arrived. It's only when serious competitors came on the scene did Nokia realise the dire situation they were in.
His memo was a complete fucking disaster, but the issues described in it were not his doing.
I think it looks crap
Why are the icons so massive? Linux desktops always love to waste screen real-estate.
I don't see how negative equity should be used as a emotional bargaining chip. When housing markets collapse people who made unwise investments MUST be burned. Otherwise people will not think twice about getting in that position and will assume everyone else will bail them out, either through artifically high house prices or receiving taxpayer funds directly. It *will* all eventually collapse at some point, and when it does, it'll affect everyone simulateously. Just look at what happened in Ireland.
The government mortgage guarantee scheme was a terrible, terrible idea. It's a bluff.
Governments should have nothing to do with the private property market at all.
Re: Can't say I blame them
Oh I have used it in the past 8 years, did you deliberately ignore my comment about having to reinstall it when I changed the graphics card?
Oh and the update to Trusty failed mid-way too and, yup you guessed it, complete reinstall... to Windows7 and VMs. Never looked back.
Sorry I upset you with facts.
Can't say I blame them
Maybe someone had to reinstall Ubuntu after doing something as simple as changing graphics card...
Linux works perfectly well as guest VM OS on a Windows host. That's how I do all my dev.
'anam' is also Irish for 'name'
People still trust that?
Don't consumer-grade GPS chips stop working when they detect you're travelling above a certain speed and/or altitude, to stop terrorists from making their own guided missiles?
Migrated from Be too
And to be honest I've not noticed any difference once Sky sent me out a new router. My old Be one started dropping once I got my new static IP. It's not that bad. The 'no Sky TV' fee is a bit cheeky.

F**king sweet! Mid install
You're still going to get jerky video recording due to frame dropping because of SSD card latency, if you use that to store your media.
Who the hell are these bureaucrats to tell a private company that's struggling how to run it's business?
Perhaps the lobbying-trolls have been at work behind the scenes
That article sounds interesting
Re: Excuse me India
Self esteem? In a country with an disgraceful caste system that no-one talks about?
My mate Dave had Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion successfully installed and working on VMWare Player. I *believe* this Service Pack will prevent your VM from booting even though it downloads and installs.
The Chinese... a great bunch of lads
Hopefully this'll be jobs for the best, not jobs for Chinese abroad.
It's probably a system so complex you can find anything you're looking for. Has anyone found a climatic process related to the Golden Ratio yet?
Come on, no government, 'Western' or not, desires anyone to have any privacy
"We don't multitask too well, but we do one task at a time and do it well"
I recently moved from a very large corporation culture to a small (< 30 people, 5 of which are infrastructure/software engineers) startup and the ability to drop everything a work on something else, while undesirable, is a total must. We try to be Agile but there are times when Just Get It F*****g Done overrule and sprint plan. I couldn't see an 'Aspie' ever working in these conditions, so are they resigned to large process driven corporation culture where politics also probably come more into play?
broken speed limit
i assumed these cars wouldn't be going faster than a bicycle
Re: Stuck in the past
You're not a FireFox user then
I thought facebook was subject to irish law, or something? Wasn't there a previous story about a company refusing to be served papers because the local law didn't apply to them... Or something...
Re: Seriously, what's the problem
It was called Symbian.
TMSI is part of the SIM, not the I Mobile Equipment Id. It's only ever supposed to be sent when your device connects to a network it's never seen before. this would imply this company are operating picocells in shopping centres.
"security through obscurity"
one of the most overused phrases in IT.
Add mod_reqtimeout to your apache modules and watch it grind to a halt.
The MS / Accenture partnetship? Thought they did mobile apps
Yes but if you want to match the performance that C++ gives you you need to start using sun.misc.Unsafe
OAuth.. easy to use
Try implementing the protocol on a mobile device
They must have been desperate for the cash. Nokia arse-raped them when Symbian was canned
EMC is in Ovens, not Ballincollig.
