Duh! Unicorns type with their horns. Very precise, but pointy.

Emojis were fine yesterday.
But now they've given women jobs? And not just as hookers? Fuck that, get rid of unicode.
reliability is “.... the ability to quickly write and continuously deploy new code."
Is it? How does this make a network more reliable? No doubt it makes for a better development experience, and allows for rapid deployment of fixes, but trying to class that as making it reliable seems a bit of a stretch. What if someone makes a mistake in some new code that has a bad side effect? Rapid deployment of that won't help reliability. What if an external service is dependent on something that the developers see as a bug? Fixing that bug may be correct, but won't help the reliability of the dependent service.
Continuous integration and deployment is great, but it's not magic.
re: Not sure why its "hypocrisy"?
It's simple. If the legislature believes that artistic freedom is important they should apply that across the board. Why is the artistic freedom to depict child abuse more imortant than the artisitic freedom to depict your own body?
It's ok, you can type cunt if that's what you mean. Or are you being satirical about Japan's "Penises good, vaginas bad" attitude?
Re: This is in the Getting Started doc, in a red panel:
Warnings will be ignored, even if they're in red boxes. Who would've thought it?
It should be secure by default, with a red box in the Getting Started doc saying:
Mongod.exe is not visible on public networks as it defaults to “Secure Mode” with the auth setting. MongoDB is designed to be run in trusted environments, so if you are confident in your network security you can disable this behaviour like this.....
Re: Firewalls. They aren't just for fun.
Isn't the problem here that mongo DBs were accessible from the internet without authentication? The firewall shouldn't be handling DB authentication.
The default install should be secure.
The user installing it should have to open it up to allow anonymous access.
Re: I had an impression that MS was phasing out --
In the article the count for IE includes both Edge and IE.
Re: a charge anything battery pack is actually more versatile
Not if you want to shut your phone down immediately. Then a removable battery is the tits!
Re: Sod all this tweaking this, faffing around with that and getting started on the other
Well there's alway linux!
Re: @djstardust Word to the wise old chap.......
I think JJ's posts are amusing enough. The angry responses are better!
re: There are technical reasons why that is not possible with Android.
No. There are business reasons why that's not possible on android. Google are clever, if they wanted an update mechanism everyone could use they'd make one.
Re: Tis all Bonkers
No, it's not. MS have already had large fines imposed by the EU for exactly this sort of thing. Apple don't provide their OS to anyone else and don't have a large enough market share for the commission to consider them. Google provide the OS that is on the majority of modern phones, making this situation very similar to MS and Windows.
The commisioner was very clear that they see Apple completely differently. Apple sell devices that have an OS on, they don't provide that OS to other manufacturer's. In this case Google are seen as more like MS than Apple. It's the pressure on the other manufacturers to exclude competing services that is the problem.
If Apple had a monopoly on handset sales then the EU would doubtless look at them. With their current market share they're safe. (And Apple wouldn't want everyone to have an iPhone, that'd ruin the cachet.)
Re: A lot of the APIs were moved in to other services from core Android
...so that they could be updated without a full firmware update. That's pretty important as a lot of carriers and manufacturers rarely provide firmware updates.
The solution to this problem (carriers and manufacturers not providing updates) is to cut out the middle men and have an update mechanism that works without them. I don't expect my internet provider to manage pc updates for me, why should my mobile provider be updating my phone?
Re: Given half a chance
Too right. Good censorship like this is awesome. It's the bad censorship, where they ban things that I like, that's the problem.
I have a beard and don't consider myself sexist.
So this "research" must be bollocks.
Also, "Women seek to gain power by getting control over men." is just the truth! FACTS can't be sexist either!!!
Re: Which means a high percentage of fewer fans
And we all know what that means!
Re: All he's doing is exercising the rights granted by the GPL
Microsoft have been doing quite a bit of that too recently. So maybe there is hope for the year of the Linux desktop!!!
Re: You know it's true!
Quality troll JJ!! The freetards really can't take a joke.....
Horray! Difficult to write malware for all the different versions!
Boo! Also makes it difficult to write apps that work for all the different versions....
Re: keyboard, mouse, 21" widescreen
How quaint! Like my gran!
Why are you logged into skype on four different devices at once?
Re: I just can't see this leading to .... anything remotely useful.
Really? It's quite simple to imagine. A child that isn't interested in computers sees that it's easy to construct something using drag'n'drop and realises it can be fun. After working with that for a bit they then want to go further and branch out into more advanced languages and development environments, eventually establishing a career in IT and creating something useful.
You need to work on your imagining, that was easy!!
Re: Needless to say, my resignation was accepted.
Yeah, that was pretty unprofessional....
Indeed. If only the Conservatives were in government.
Re: The next government then repeals the bill.
Wouldn't hold your breath for that....
Re: Microsoft seeks naive and ignorant Linux user
I wonder if there's a tech news site anywhere with a forum full of them??
Re: Hope we are all not fools.
Well surely some of us must be. Did you mean "Hope we are not all fools"?
Re: Then pick it up in its jaws as a dog with a rabbit and shake it violently until it is lifeless
Yeah, that's leaving your negativity at the door.
Re: The limitation is for marketing reasons, not technical ones.
It's almost like they're a company!!!
Re: that most will probably balk at giving up.
If they were aware that's what they were doing then maybe, but as it's happening silently the vast majority won't notice.
re: This whole article oozes snide
This whole site oozes snide. If it causes you offence when it's directed at Google then I guess there must be a little bit of Google love there....
Re: he's an IT professional if he would vote for it!
Voting for it will turn him into an IT professional!! That's some fancy legislation.
Indeed, but I could show you lots of shit C++ code, does that mean that C++ is also crap? (ok, bad example, but true for any language!)
Re: this story only really came out yesterday
Wow. You should work in government.
Look! Over there! MS are evil!!!!
Re: this story only really came out yesterday
So it's when the story breaks that's important to you, not when the vulnerability is introduced?
what happened to
"It's 2016 and clicking a link can pwn your Linux pc"? Worried about how much it would upset the freetards??
But, can I wipe it and put a PROPER linux on there?
Can I wipe it and put a PROPER linux on there?
Re: Religious people do not think for themselves.
Because all non-religious people are independent thinkers? Yeah, right.....
Re: Have a look at www.gotati.com.
Arghhh! My Eyes!!!!!!
re: because of all the reasons that have been pounded out here before on so many threads.
Doesn't stop any of you pounding them out again though, ad bloody infinitum....
Re: No sympathy.....
No, when lot's of people get something wrong it becomes right by weight of numbers!
Re: What do people who had already paid off their mortgage get?
Re: For those not technical enough to understand
Is that the differentiator? Sure it's not just "For those unfamiliar with linux"?
Wind your neck in.
Re: all manual for almost a year now
How's the wrist holding up?
Re: They own you.
Slightly OTT. They own your pc.
