There's a lot more to backup than you thought

Julz

Re: Backup ... do you mean Recovery products?

Absolutely, the main component to consider is always the restore. Incremental backup's are fine and dandy, but just how long is it going to take to restore the whole caboodle? OK, so you've restored the data/system/service, what does the business need to do now? Oh, and how does this restored service play nicely and not screw up all the services that haven't just time warped into the past? These and many other potential areas for Mr Cockup all become very very important for a business that actually has to use a backup for real.

Microsoft's Euro cloud darkens: US FEDS can dig into foreign servers

Julz

Re: Doom for US tech companies@ jnemesh

NSA and GCHQ are not really the point here; the main arguments being presented are about the extension of US laws to all nations by use of services and servers either based in the USA or provided by companies who are either domiciled in the USA or are controlled by such. What GCHQ does by spying on USA citizens and then allowing our country cousins access to the information would be illegal as far as the USA courts are concerned but hey, it doesn't happen.

MYSTERIOUS Siberia CRATER: ALIENS or METEOR not involved, officials insist

Julz

These a fair amount of data here:

http://siberiantimes.com/science/casestudy/news/first-pictures-from-inside-the-crater-at-the-end-of-the-world/

Reminds me of an Edward De Bono lateral thought problem. My first stab would be a plug of ice forced up through the soil; possibly by gas pressure.

p.s. If you look at the the final video you can see a number of small circular lakes as the helicopter comes to land which could be holes like this one but eroded and filled with water over a period of time.

Re: Plus ça change...

Indeed, the wonderful Peter Bonfield split ICL into several competing divisions which then spent the next decade or so fighting with each other rather than cooperating to get outside business. In the mean time ICL slid slowly into obscurity. Bonfield of course jumped ship to BT and did the same thing there! Master stroke, give the man a knighthood; oh, they did...

BOSS Bang boffins: DARK ENERGY spreading across the Universe

Julz

Quantum Foam

There is a good candidate for dark energy; quantum foam.

arxiv.org/pdf/1001.0411

Dark matter, as has been pointed out previously, isn't required to explain the rotation of galaxies, so lets drop that old chestnut. So we are left with having to explain why space is lumpy; not sure we need dark matter for that either.

Re: Ban international companies.

That's how it works now. The point is that the individual legal entities/companies in each country are owned/controlled by the same company/person/legal entity and deal with each other in any way they see fit (well, within the legal regulations of each country).

Assange's fate to be revealed at high noon

Re: TV Tax letter

In 1964, a Moroccan-born Israeli double agent named Mordechai Ben Masoud Louk (also known as Josef Dahan) was drugged, bound, and placed in a diplomatic bag at the Egyptian Embassy in Rome, but was rescued by the Italians.[4] The crate that he had been placed in appeared to have been used for a similar purpose before, possibly for an Egyptian military official who had defected to Italy several years before but then disappeared without a trace before reappearing under Egyptian custody and facing trial.

Facebook's Eduardo Saverin: I'm not a tax-dodger

Julz
Pint

Your one of us, or one of them.

If the USA allowed dual citizenship, like a lot of other countries, then perhaps this sort of circumstance wouldn't come about. Having to renounce either your current citizenship to become a citizen of the USA or to renounce your USA citizenship to become a citizen of another country seems odd and rather restrictive. We don't know why Eduardo wanted to become a citizen of Singapore, but perhaps if he were allowed to keep his USA citizenship he would have.

Highest point on the Moon found: Higher than Mount Everest

Julz

The Moon Has No Oceans

What about the hight of everest above the lowest point on the earths surface as the moon has no oceans? Quick google...

Everest 8848m above sea level

Mariana Trench -10,971m below sea level

This gives a maximum vertical displacement of 19,819m, a significantly greater range than the puny lunar range of 10,786m.
