Seriously? But Why?
To paraphrase an old MS Access joke. You have a problem and you use Sharepoint to solve it - now you have two problems.
Nice to see the "Supposed to be automatic" John Brunner quote in the sub-headline. Might dig out some of his less depressing books.
Call a spade a spade.
It's a Cluster F**K !
BTW: Do the Cyanogen installs get fixed sooner?
Actually one of the reasons NS10's got used some much in studios is that they could cope with the odd dynamic spike from a falling live mic stand via a full up channel fader or an older multi-track dropping tape onto the heads before fully coming out of rewind.
I agree they are not home hifi speakers but they did make very good studio domestic reference speakers plus, if you got a mix sounding good on NS10's (very near field) all you had left to worry about was getting the lower bass ranges correct.
Pretty much every non classical bit of music from the 80's, 90's ended up on them at some point often for critical decisions. Now too. They are still everywhere and for some very good reasons.
DX7 sounding thin - maybe but that's what the outboard rack is for.
Rossi's bike included as it too sounds wonderful
Good luck to Yamaha with this. They have consistently made some great musical devices. DX7, NS10's, excellent pianos, flutes, saxophones and drums, Game changer audio mixers, and of course they make Rossi's M1 bike.
Agreed but then like, many of us here, you understand how to evaluate technology and arrive at the best solution. People who buy these toys are generally consumers with a capital C.
Says the Coward !
I normally try not to comment on any of Mr Orlowski's articles but feel compelled to bite on this particular bait.
I often need to check websites on different browsers so put W10 on my nice little Asus t100. Did an over the top install - took 40 minutes and all my software worked.
I can appreciate that tools like StarDock may be useful to some but honestly it took all of 3 minutes to turn off Cortana, delete all the tiles and resize the menu.
Old W8 themes still work so it was easy to get wider window borders and an active and inactive colour.
I like the new menu. I like the way software is grouped. I like the new search (sans Cortana). I like the Action Centre implementation.
I will not be rolling this machine back and am also seriously thinking about putting W10 on my main machine although this is mainly for the better DPI options for multiple monitors.
Re Logo - So better not have any facebook like links or similar on any page then.
He could have said he had captured a cat burglar.
Is this the 4000 plus tabs article?
You really should think about publishing this information for all articles.
Comments p 2 too
Also BT and some Sky services so quite few users then.
HTML5 Video has no DRM asfaik and, like it or not, many media producers want to at least try to protect their content.
I still mourn the loss of MS Media Encoder and am no Silverlight fan but it does provide a stable and well documented end point for streaming without many of the security risks of other methods.
"I took "4000 tabs" to be sarcasm"
Ah - I am informed and impressed. I also now feel a little sorry for you and will never read another of your informative articles in quite the same way.
I took "4000 tabs" to be sarcasm?
Ah! I had reasoned alone the lines I would use for navigating at sea - 2 points of known angle and distance being enough to calculate position.
I had to read it twice but your explanation does make sense so Thank You.
I have always wondered why the disc shows so many pulsars to indicate the Earth's location.
Surely two or three would be enough ?
I wonder if if any help or support desk systems allow anything like this - probably not but they would certainly be interesting.
"I can't quite make the woman in the lift fit in, though"
How about the poor user trying to deal with the Start Menu.
I had several Amiga's ending up with an 030 4000. It's last HD was a 1GB full height IMB and I remember thinking "how will I ever use that much space".
Amiga's could be turned into a Mac too via Shapeshifter which is how I can proudly say I started using Photoshop on an Amiga.
I have always thought that the wealth of books that taught people how to work directly with the hardware made a significant contribution to many peoples careers which is why I think it a shame that this article is so short.
I was never a big gamer but I did spend hours sweating on R-Type and Dragon Breed.
While I love the idea of being able to take effective pot-shots at drones I draw your attention to this:
Exactly - given that valves produce odd harmonic distortion while transistors produce even harmonic distortion. Odd sounds better to our ears. Can't remember why though.
"Finnish-American firebrand Torvalds pretty much runs Linux kernel development"
From gmail account? Shirley he must have better options available to him - the odd server available to him somewhere perhaps?
"Great article, pleasure to read" - seconded.
Exactly but I got I wrong as Hooders protect against Jain tech. Time to re-read.
Just like a Hooder then.
Maybe sea horses are Jain tech?
How science really works
Spiny Norman ?
I'm amazed that these old fishy sounding jokes are not right at the top.
I have BT FTTC 80meg. I get around 76. To get this I had to complain a lot.
Assuming one is not on a flakey pair of ports there are still up to 5 copper cable connections between the cabinet and the house.
In my case I kept getting Open Reach out until we had replaced a couple of cables and also fixed connection issues.
To be fair Open Reach engineers where quite helpful although engineer B never had a record of work done by engineer A etc.
Excellent book too. Captures the spirit.
Multi-tracks where huge in the 60s - in fact they where mostly huge in the 70's and 80's too.
I suppose they could have used a lot of Nagra's (small 2 track reel to reels) but even then it seems like a lot of (easily exposed) effort to get some snippets of "intelligence" that might be more easily gained in other places.
"Noise cancelling" mics, as we now experience them, did not exist except in the form of rather long directional rifle mics and these did not really do noise cancelling.
Battery tech was very basic (from experience of using Nagras on 70's film sets you would be lucky to get 45 minutes even if you ran the tape slowly) so this would all have needed power from the aircraft?
Even if you assume that the intelligence people had access to technology 10 years in front of anything else and made by some "Q" department this still seems far fetched.
The only way I can see this working with 60's tech is if it was built in to the aircraft and then kept secret until now.
I think this is BS.
What did Ireland have that Cornwall wanted?
Tax concessions !
And in the correct timeslot too.
The 3 body problem is why physicists rarely indulge in threesomes.
They have been making overly optimistic statements about "when" since they started.
Not sure I would want to trust my life to anything made by a Virgin company, especially as this one looks under resourced and not able to identify serious issues before they take lives.
I accept that, in the end, you have to actually fly the thing but wonder why it was possible to deploy the feathering tail at a point in the flight cycle where it could be catastrophic.
Personally I would have more faith in a scaled up Lohan vessel. At least we know they test properly.
Also - This vehicle does not get anywhere near "space" - not sure it can even achieve low earth orbit.
Yes but at least the author did at least try to give all us non-techies an idea of what 32Mb can hold so there's that.
Seriously - for this publication?
I thought we got told sometime in 2001 to stay away from Europa?
The next logical step after any mass uptake of DCs might be to also implement a system of controlling all cars in a given zone by some third entity - sold as a logical safety measure providing many benefits AKA complete control of all traffic by the state.
It would probably not need more than another dish on all those nice towers and a concerted effort to make the tech work / legislation to oblige manufacturers to include.
Whenever I think about DCs they are always linked in my head to all the mad stuff that takes place in the DCs in novels by Banks, Asher, Gibson so maybe exciting times ahead then.
Yes but you can no longer write your name in the snow.
What did Google expect - have they met "the internet"?
We have eels but no hovercraft ?
Yes I quite agree - later, replacing lovely Studer 2 tracks with PCM Digital recording onto Sony F1's did more "damage".
We still tried to mix down to 1/2" tape running at 30ips but producers being what they are mostly all wanted PCM.
Back then sample rates where still slow enough for significant artefacts to be created - also most remaining distortion was even harmonic so sounded harsher. (Odd harmonic distortion sounds better)
I also remember the first digital multi-track I saw (3M) and fast asleep on a sofa beside it was its tethered maintenance engineer.
These days almost everything here is in the cloud cat. This article actually fits - most do not.

Why does it need a PIR - why not trigger the bell when someone pushes a bell button?
Excellent Article - Thanks - Covered much of the ground I am moving towards.
