a "made up number."
Yes it is indeed made up in the sense that somebody has calculated it.

GCHQ are trying to kill two birds with one stone here; make them look like the good guys, while creeping their mission. Sleazebags.
And all the while, the internet gets more and more carved up.
Oh, and how long before a tax hike is announced so that you may cover the cost of the inevitable engineering tits-up that follows.
This is such a thorny issue, I can see Obama kicking this one into the long grass and leaving it for his successor to deal with
Deleting a post which was protesting censorship is bad. My that's a slippery slope right there....
It's like pulling out a firearm during league play.
> "The World has briefly succumbed to bastard hipsters."
Do you mean 'a bastard of hipsters'?
I believe 'bastard' is the correct collective noun for the job.
You say 'history of bravery', I say planned obsolescence.
How long until they replace the thunderbolt connector with a version 2.0 rendering all the apple faithful's old kit obsolete?
How many of those old firewire peripherals can you still use? Zero, I'd imagine.
I still have plenty of USB 1 kit kicking around that I can still use.
Where is the mug icon?
While I applaud the lofty goals, I can't imagine anyone wanting one of these, unless it was forced upon them by a spouse!
Beer because its Friday =)
Burned twice by intel? Literally and figuratively.
Paris - because wtf.
The engineers responsible for storing passwords in clear text should be promptly taken out back and shot, if they haven't already (hey this is Russia).
That's been in the book of fuckups 101 since forever.
"There won't be a second referendum. End. Of. I believe Theresa May has been crystal on that."
Like she was crystal on her definition of 'everyone' when she said she would make a 'Britain that works for everyone'.
I rather think her definition would be quite different from yours or mine.
You're right, it IS expensive.
However, the quality of modern fibre means it only has to be laid down once, and rarely replaced. Maybe once every couple of decades or so.
In the mean time, replacing the gubbins at either end will ensure progressive speed increases.
I guess google have quit thinking big and would rather concentrate on short term ROI these days.
That's what you have been up to!
> " I literally finished reading that book yeserday. No the bacteria doesnt change time, can't think what gave you that notion! Y'might want to read it again"
He's read the sequel
looks like someone has been skimping on manufacturing costs again. Reminds me of nvidia's bumpgate days
It's DMTF not DTMF... Had to read that twice, and here's me thinking Microsoft had dialled a wrong number.
Better than just trying burning it up over the pacific and giving the remainder to the fish.
Apologies for the rather vulgar turn of phrase, however this is important stuff.
Brexit, really was never a good solution to the problems the British establishment were having with the EU, and they knew that. It is the political equivalent of throwing your toys out of the pram and screaming 'I HATE YOU'. It really wont serve the common good, it will only serve those who have the will and means to exploit the resulting chaos, and that isn't me, and isn't you, and it isn't the people who need the most help in society here, or abroad.
Do you really believe that a fractured and infighting Europe with more hate in it is good for any one? I had some grandparents who seemed to think that was bad last time around.
So with peace in mind, I hold out an olive pint to you sir, and will drink to a better future, whatever your definition of that is.
"Britain can and will be "great" again..."
Would you like to explain how that can happen with an economy in the shitter, prices going up, and no-one in their right mind willing to trade with, and/or invest in the country?
The sooner people get their heads out of their asses, and realise that brexit is a horrible idea, the better.
... I'll pick one up. My 8350 is getting long in the tooth, and intel have enough money already
Not if it's stuck in traffic, it wont. And it it stops often to pick up the elderly, whom I assume are its target market, since even the slowest walker can match its speed, it will be delayed even more while waiting for wheelchair folding etc.
... and quite rightly. Microsoft often seem like a rudderless titanic heading right for the iceberg, but hey at least they have a skunkworks shop trying to make new stuff.
They may ultimately produce complete junk and spaff away their huge wad of cash, but if it makes gaming headseats cheaper, I'm all for watching from the sidelines.
This is going to give LG a huge advantage in smartphone processing power, and not exactly competition for intel is it? Smart move.
If there whereabouts was disclosed, they'd better relocate, sharpish.
> "she stated that there was no support for leaving" ...
Not sure about you AC, but I can't believe anything the comes out of a Conservative politicians' mouth. Even if it were chunder, I'd doubt the veracity of it.
Besides the instant-on rig that I want, there are many applications which will get a boost from this technology, and people prepared to pay the premium for it. intel are probably on to a winner with the big data, HPC, finance and cloud folk.
Were they running this on one box or what?
That's a very low target number. *munches popcorn*
The shitparade following this shitshow I going to be fun to watch
If the prices are competitive, these will fly off the shelves, like roast chicken off the dinner table on a Sunday. Om nom nom, yes please
I can't remember which distribution this happened on (might have been CentOS), but I tried to install the vim editor, and the package manager wanted to install x.org, gnome, gtk3, and a whole page full of other cruft as dependencies... serious wtf moment.
This is what you get when you keep your gold with everyone else's, in a bunker with a big sign on it that says 'gold stored here'. No matter how good the security, someone is going to try and rob it, and eventually someone succeeds.
Not gonna disagree with you on that point. I've had my gaming rig bricked by W10 twice, but its got one feature I give a monkey's about, and that is DX12.
For everything else I use W7 and Linux
The last update (1511) borked my box badly. The start menu and task bars would lock up completely after a minute or so in a manner similar to the borks reported with this release. Probably some old cruft left over from Windows 7 I guess.
Eventually I did a clean install with 1511 and the new update to 1607 went smoothly.
But if you are a server op, simply turning off compression on your https connections mitigates this attack.
This has been a best practice for a while, but as you can imagine there a LOT of sites out there that don't do this, including your regular high-street banks.
Nice work if youCANN get it.
Perhaps if I become a lying corrupt shyster, ICANN achieve a similar level of success.
Yes, I know, getting my coat.
> "I would pay almost any price for a Windows OS that just sat there quietly, didn't move and did NOTHING while I worked on other things."
Sounds like you want to install Wine on FreeBSD, which will literally do the square root of Jack, unless you are using it.
Had it since the beginning and its been working well for me, except the one time windows update bricked my machine, forcing me to rebuild.
That aside, there are some decent tweaks to the anniversary upgrade, and I'll be shoving it on my gaming rig later.
I'm also a Linux user, and would use OSX too if the cost of entry wasn't stupid. But to dismiss windows out of hand because 'ugh microsoft', is to deny yourself opportunity.
I doubt NASA will chose to de-orbit this probe in January 2018.
The last orbiter there was operational for years on its nuclear battery. Juno is powered by solar panels, so could potentially last much longer. Unless it gets de-funded or fried by radiation.
Lying fuckers, and they can walk away pretending they did nothing wrong.
Indeed. The currency is only going to recover when the political situation does. With obergruppenführer May in charge, that may be some time away. Bend over and prepare for yet another shafting courtesy of the conservative party, people.
Looks like they are pulling leaves from the trees over in graphics land and re-branding some old kit (with a shit rep), to flesh out their 'all new' product line.
... on windows with one of the first skype releases after being bought by Microsoft. Even with pcs on the same network segment, it was routing everything via servers. I saw file transfers to the desk next to me drop from 100Mps to 10Kbps. Nice job Microsoft.
For a really private alternative, get a copy of signal from open whisper systems.
I always thought this venture was a ridiculous farce, but this exceeds my expectations.
To make something like hyperloop a success you need a very serious engineering team, and not silicon valley shenanigans.
Wont be long before Hyperloop One folds.
I think what he means is the bank execs still have to work under the threat of a 'disappearance', if they fuck up. Which they will, eventually.
It turns out that its just a nice little earner for Amazon.
Sure it sounds convenient on the surface, but actually AWS's tools for doing anything useful with it were pretty poor and not easy to get your head around (this was a year ago and may have improved).
Ditch Lambda, set up your own VMs to do what you want and you'll be making a big saving anyway.
Paris, cause well, whats the effing point?
"Hadrian's Firewall for England and Wales."
To match the Great British Channel Checkpoint, or the Great Firewall of China?
Seriously it sounds like she wants and excuse to censor anything and everything for some whimsical excuse. Great, another power-mad sociopathic conservative.
Ahh I love Nvidia fanboys. So full of spurious claims and thin on fact. Much like Nvidia marketing.
I have one!
Well worth slapping down cash. Its faster, quieter and uses half the power of the 7970 that it replaces.
"And yes, commercially 32bit x86 is quite dead already. Get over your loss.."
Actually no. Intel only very recently stopped production of the 386 - it was being used in embedded markets. I believe they are still churning out 486, 586 and 686 chips for the same markets, all of which are 32bit.
Yup, I installed Ubuntu on my netbook and it performed like an absolute dog.
Switched it out for Crunchbang++ and it now flys along.
Methinks perhaps the Ubuntu folk are too lazy to optimise their shitty UI
