there's only so much radio bandwidth possible in a cellular system. if you have 10000 users in an area all streaming 5Mbit/sec videos, thats 50 gigabits/second sustained. there's no way the cellular architecture can cope with that.
they should never have sold "unlimited" service, and encouraged that expectation, it should have been metered from the get-go... use more, pay more. if too many people are using more than you can deliver, jack the prices til the usage drops to manageble levels. use a tiered pricing system so moderate/occasionalusers pay significantly less per unit than data hogs.
me thinks we shoudl take up a bitcoin collection and put a old fashion pain contract out on whoever is originating these sorts of virus. some thugs need to break some fingers. repeat until the wannabes decide to take up another career.
the real reason AT&T has been pushing UVerse is to get out from under public utility regulations.
guess what? uverse is a digital service, it has no service level guarantees, and its down when the power goes out.
Re: You have misidentified the customer
bingo... remember, we are NOT the customer, we are the PRODUCT.
"Econometric analysis confirms that, even before efficiencies are considered, the combination of AT&T and DirecTV will create a pro-competitive, integrated bundle of video and broadband services that provokes a beneficial competitive reaction from cable and results in a demonstrable overall net benefit to consumers," AT&T argues.
omg, how could they say that with a straight face??
ZFS works much the same way.
Re: Maybe more wiring-related than protocol-related
thats difficult for single computers in an internet colocation environment.
the big advantage of containers is much less overhead per VM. with a hypervisor, each VM is running on its own kernel, all of which are talking to virtualized IO devices. with a container (solaris zone, etc), each container is a virtual userspace under the same OS kernel
40 years ago I knew the IBM 1130 inside and out, down to the bits and bytes, IO devices and all.
Today? not so much so.
Would I want to dredge all that back up? not for any sane amount of money such a museum job could possibly pay.
I'll stick with smugmug. I tried the various free services, didn't like their albums and/or spamminess. smugmug isn't free, but its cheap enough, offers unlimited storage for a annual fee, and has good looking albums without any restrictions on embedding. Combined with Adobe Lightroom as the photo editing/management tool, it totally rocks, a couple clicks to publish an album, fix a few pics in it later, one click republish.
Re: What about CacheCade Pro 2.0 SW
cachecade is part of LSI's megaraid line, which I don't believe was involved in this.
more likely, marketing and executives get the fancy new Fruit Loop, actual product engineers get sent to outer suburbia.
yup. all 7 of the AOL subscribers on one of my email lists got shut out the other day by dmarc policy p=reject.
so now, yahoo and its clients (att, and all the former babybell legacy domains), hotmail, AND AOL have effectively banned email list servers. "Why, fewer than 2% of our 300 million email users post to mail lists, who cares about those 5 million people!"
Re: What is he saying?
nah, it just requires using clever smart products like Ubiquiti UniFi AP's that autocoordinate, instead of dodgy SOHO 'routers' or overpriced traditional Cisco enterprise kit.
Re: The Barge is...
except, offshore of California, the open pacific ocean is some of the gnarliest seas in the world. the 200 mile limit puts you WAY out past the end of the continental shelf, where the ocean floor is several miles deep.
I hope it DOES brick ATMs'. anyone building embedded systems using consumer desktop software deserves everything they get.
the primary attribute of a cloud is being nebulous and wet.
why is this even news?
'crazy cult leaders issue stupid edict about something that likely will never happen anyways' ?!? seriously ?
paris, cuz she digs crazy
those hyper-hyperthreaded sparc T series chips also perform rather poorly when you load down all cores and threads... lots of threads but slow CPU performance of each individual thread... and they are only available in insanely expensive Oracle brand servers.
or the Dell U2410's we use at work, they have touch sensitive controls on the bezel.
how the heck can someone buying a patent invalidate an existing license agreement? that makes a mockery of the whole system.
Re: A possible explanation
I dunno. my employer physically scraps surplus machines, its too expensive to wipe them securely for resale or donation. the disk drives go into a metal shreader
I doubt its SAS vs SATA. however, SAS disks in a data center are far more likely to be 2.5" 10k or 15k rpm, while SATA disks are much more likely to be 7200 rpm 3.5".
omg, what fun you could have broadcasting erroneous telemetry. "BIGASS TRUCK IS COMING AT YOU FROM BEHIND AT 150kph!!!" muahaahah, that should wake up some slow left lane clowns.
no, you're the product.
Re: Garbage In Garbage Out
the suns energy output is remarkably steady regardless of solar flares, sunspot cycles and such.
sure, in a few dozen more billion years, it will change, the sun will eventually swell up into a red giant, then collapse to be a white dwarf. but on a year to year, decade to decade, century to century basis, the suns output is a smooth flat line.
so, find a new red herring, k?
no, no, when its all VOIP, its becomes a DATA SERVICE and not a PUBLIC UTILITY. no more common carrier, no more line sharing. AT&T's wetdream comes true, they can revert to the closed proprietary network monopoly of the 1960s.
ABC and NBC have been broadcast on the same HDTV 'channel' for a couple years now in the Monterey/Salinas/Santa Cruz , NBC on 8.1, ABC on 8.2
I don't see how this is news.
how about... Deutscheinfraubetrunkenluder
how does 'open source' pay the electric bill and such ? I don't think the power company is particularlly interested in C code.
face it, 50% of the american population is effectively worthless.
I'm amazed this has taken so long. I drove to Mojave Spaceport for the launch of the X2 flight, october 2004. nearly 10 years ago. at the time it seemed like they were just a couple years from scaling it up.
btw, the X2 flight reached nearly 112000km (69000 miles). afaik that was the last and highest flight of SpaceShipOne.
Re: Microsoft change CPUs???
NT was originally developed on MIPS. It has run on MIPS, X86, Alpha, Itanium, and even Sparc although that was never released.
Re: Dinosaur MS
the basic ARM instruction set has been around a long time but there is a lot more to a server than just the instruction set, the total infrastructure for a full blown ARM server is quite new. Windows needs a whole new HAL to support its memory management, DMA, IO bus enumeration, bootstrap sequence.
no, no, you can't pay for firefox or chrome. youtube and google and netflix will have to pay AT&T to let you access them without a data cap.
how did the HP 65 from 1974 not make this list? it was the gold standard for programmable calculators for years and years.
====> because you needed kinda big pockets.
Shades of the original version of Starship Troopers....
or every Gundam giant robot manga and anime out of Asia, hah.
and this was their capabilties in 2007, 5 years ago. thats before the utah data center etc have come online with their zetabyte storage (assuming they've sorted out the power problems they were having this summer)
it doesn't. original USB was 2.5 watts, the enhanced USB 'power' version used by ipad's and such is 10 watts. even a superslim ultrabook is about 40 watts.
Re: Yet another failure?
really? I've had to replace or repair dozens of those coaxial connectors, all different and proprietary on various laptops over the last 10-15 years.
beer, because a job well done deserves one!
so his first order of the day will be to throw out everything done to date and start over in ASP.NET and MS SQL Server ?
gee, does The Register get a cease and desist order now for pointing to TPB and aiding and abetting in distributing the magic numbers--err--magnet links to said copywronged crap?
Badges? We don't need no steekin' badges, man!
Re: I don't want control
you mean, just like Finance is the gatekeeper of all MONEY in the company ?
sure, go ahead and spend a bunch of unbudgeted money on the support infrastructure for the unplanned toys they bought themselves.
gasoline, air, heat == fire.
yeah, its amazing what you can 'see' when you amplify noise.
just put a quote in front of the text field (your serial number), like '000085545
and the google play store has already dropped Adblock+ for android, how long before they block such useful extensions from the desktop browser to?
they are really trying to kill off Windows for desktop workstations.
gee, apple has a store, google has a store, WE MUST HAVE STORE TOO!
gee, noone wants to USE our store, LETS FORCE THEM IF THEY USE WINDOWS.
gee, noone WANTS TO USE WINDOWS ANYMORE ON THEIR DESKTOP
8.1, if its ever forced as opposed to optional, will be the final straw that will move me to Linux desktops full time.
gee, does anyone know of any Adobe Lightroom replacements that worth a darn? I shoot extensively in Canon Raw format, and /need/ lightroom for its ease in managing and easily tweaking large numbers of pictures to get optimal results.
