interesting jitter in the object on top right. I suppose there were adjustments to be made to main body of the images in order to assemble them.
/agree -> thought they would have taken it much closer than this -- but then the bandwidth issue strikes <says the guy migrating data off tapes....>
Music? *shrug* - its Vangelis. I'll listen to it. Pretty much any time.
Instead of Kieren, it would have a one line article. Mind you it would have had to have had two words censored.
It is relevant, as he *claims* to be a tech editor.

Youth today. Tut. An enterprising streaker would take a selfie stick and
live-stream periscope it.
We live in a *fairly* alive, but relatively quiet neighbourhood in our chunk of the GTA. In the last two weeks we've acquired small herds of folks. Sometimes (parent) and herd of smalls, sometimes herd of teens, and oddly, most often herd of (20something) adults wandering about sight seeing.
Fortunately, the *vast* majority of these herds are polite, well mannered and don't try to do stupid stuff, but I'm expecting that shortly we'll have a Darwin award cluster.
I've just gotten used to the fact that we really didn't see that many folks outside that often (generally only the dog walkers) around here and now .... clusters all over wandering about. Reminds me of when I were a small.
F.D. Every other body in this house is playing the damn game too. -- I'm just the hotspot.
Cell on wings?
I'll note the Anonymous tag, and leave you in the troll bin.
To several of my relatives, this is right in the middle their *front* yard. Perhaps you might want to watch something *other* than Fox.
usb <-> ps2 dongles (2 at least)
usb serial port cable (both a 6 foot and a 16 inch one)
a Canadian tire magnetic multi slot screwdriver and a box with - 6" hex drive extender and 72 bits for the damn thing. Covers just about any screw head I've ever seen. (including those damned triangle ones that every oriental aftermarket tat assembler thinks are secure) The bits are from PrincessAuto.
1/4 and 1/2 socket drivers with 4" 6" 14" and 24" extenders, 48 sockets < that lot tend to stay in the spare wheel well of the car >
mini electric screwgun (with charger) < again, in the trunk most often >
Cable end crimping gun and I try to keep a dozen or so ends.
I actually have a parallel port cable, a serial to serial cable, and two USB2 A->B cables.
and not one but 2 spare 64Gb USB thumbdrives.
an 8' tested good cat6 cable. <helps if your TESTER is pooched. And I've met at least one>
I personally carry a 64Gb USB key that has ISO images for a *baseline* recovery image for *all* the OS's I support. And spare CD and DVD disks.
upvoted - DAC cables, scsi cables, chassis interconnects on SGI and IBM boxes, EMC bus cables, fiber too.
@ LINCARD10000: *food*. Some folks find 'em tasty when toasted.
.... I know an old woman who swallowed a fly.....
Personally I rather like Penrose, if only because I find his language 'translates' well to my comprehension. I can still find bits of his stuff that I find less .... "credible" .... if you will, but his tendency to throw thermodynamics out at the subatomic equation level seems to make sense ..... in the context of examining individual events. What with LHC *testing* a crapton of events at a time, and making so MANY more events to analyse, thermodynamics comes back into focus.
Still, considering my uncle is a Penrose student, my take on physics is somewhat biased.
Experience speaking here:
DO NOT let that happen.
Banks are responsible to SHAREHOLDERS not to customers or clients. 11 years. 11 years of futzing around, changing targets, increasing interest levels (based on that magical APR value) and back and forth between the tax folks and the bank(s) that held the loans .....
And that 11 years of back and forth was just convincing everyone that the damn loan was PAID OFF. Hell, the BANK didn't even have copies of the paperwork that they'd sent me saying it was complete.
Dammit .. this one needs an AMFM comment. It DEMANDS it.
Sadly, I am fairly ill equipped to place it for him.
Does the new browser have a noscript plugin?

I have to apologize for stirring up the orbital politics with this but.....
I've seen, *cough* 4 DC power downs in 19 years. Two of them were outright mechanical failure of power delivery systems, one was human error on the part of a power provider and the fourth was bad planning of a change, resulting in a fire that took out the switches.
It is possible to have well supported and managed DCs go completely south. I suppose it should be rarer than in my experience, but it *does* happen.
Cloud, however, when it goes wrong, being larger, more widely spread and such, can take a *hell* of a lot longer to recover from the outage. The first three took between 6 and 9 hours to recover from, the last, for a smaller, outlying DC took 18 hours, primarily due to having to wait for the fire department to sign off on the rebuild of the damaged bits.
< times are from *oops* to *everything is back to normal* >
Sadly - amongst many folks it is the most convenient method of collating and associating.
Doesn't make it the best way - we all have to recall that we are the product, not the customer. I post bugger all there. I do use it to keep family connections and some long distance friendships that have lasted years but that is all that connection is for.
You just have to read that as a technologically inclined individual. Don't know about anyone else around these parts, but it makes portions of my (male) anatomy retreat to locations they aren't supposed to be anywhere near at this age.
And since the good ship facebook is US based media for US based Advertisers driven by US based corporate media framework, one can safely assume that the censorship is there, has been for some time and is driven by the utterly screwed up moralist, egotistical, self centred, buy the shiny, bigger is better, fluffy bunny bullshit that the global media empire that is owned by wall street wants you to feel is the way the world works.
Now, dammit, where's my coffee.
< No, actually, despite the social, moral and ethical issues raised in the article, I quite literally could not care LESS what facebook does, to my account, or anyone else's for that matter. It is *NOT* the water delivery infrastructure. It is a crap tool. >
"Incompatible with Micro SD"
Might need to find hardware that supports the damn thing before thinking about buying one. I know *I* don't have an S6 lying around.

It just wanted a long weekend to celebrate the national holidays. Yeesh. How hard is that.
@AMFM: Some days I think you own the copyright on my rising paranoia. But it isn't paranoia if they *are* out to get you.

We ended up in the soup *after* the fact.

Using old libssl/libcrypto on build hosts?
servo]$ ldd ./servo |grep 'not found'
libssl.so.1.0.0 => not found
libcrypto.so.1.0.0 => not found
system is at 1.0.2h
will have to build from source to see.
We did have one heck of a smack from something at one time (axial tilt + moon) -- perhaps our interloper left bits behind and we're still in the digestion process?
Could be ugly if it results in either a case of diarrhoea or even projectile vomiting.
"Small galaxies are at the mercy of larger galaxies which can strip their gas supply away if they get too close."
Very much like modern businesses.
..... Thats no moon!
I was wondering what the golden parachute was for that photon.

*thank you* for putting a smile on my face in the office this morning.
FInal model prices should be in the $2-$5M range, and you can run far more than one in a flight. Makes a bit of a difference in the results when you send a swarm of bees/locusts instead of single eagle. There is *some* logic here. Rather rare if you ask me.
May well destroy a book series I recall reading a *long* time ago - its somewhat vague, but involved someone becoming a benevolent dictator ruling from a moon around jupiter. It was a fun series. Can't for the life of me recall the title.
In any case, Cheers, but no beer till the orbits done. Want steady hands on those keyboards. Good luck guys and gals.
I'm old enough that calling them (or for that matter SSDs, SD cards etc) "drives" just doesn't quite feel correct.
This was an example of Pottorture.
Given a distributed computing environment, and these being available in the 2G range, I'm actually considering one per node as scratchpad tmp space - we've an ETL that runs and generates up to 200,000 temporary files in a 100Gb lv that *might* just be precipitating internal timeouts. If we can serialize that we'd be able to keep it under 2G of data at a time. These just might be fast enough for that. Thoughts?
Beer for playing with toys.
Interesting Putters. Leftpondian, only a few years older here. Being Canuck, I've learned Feet, Pounds, Gallons (*both of them*) Quarts, liters metres and kilos. And oddly, Stone, bushels, tons (*both of them*), acres, hectares and about 11 other ways of measuring land area. -- I think our British heritage and unfortunate proximity to them down south gave me the best and worst of both sides of the equation(s).
I wonder is there a Chinese version of The Tragically Hip?
"So why should fuel at the pump rise?"
Because they are responsible to the stockholders, and there's an opportunity to make a profit.
Not having been day to day in the media over there, perhaps what I've seen offhand was not completely representative of what was in full flight.
Leave media presentation mirrored Trump's campaign, picking the lowest of denominators, inflating fear and hate, niggling "that nasty bugger over there is taking your cookie away" messages. Mostly insinuations that the money going to EU was effectively being stolen and handed to lazy, no good, invading, other (coloured/religion/political orientation/sexuality/hair style) people. Essentially the campaign appeared designed to appeal to the basest component of the lizard brains.
Remain media presentations sounded mostly like Clinton's campaign. Obfuscation, indirection, look at the cute bunnies from Europe, We'll get lots of cookies! etc etc.
At least in the US there is a third option.
What bothers me *most* (not just US election, BREXIT stuff etc) is just how much of what is being spewed by *all* the media sources out there is specifically designed from the top down to split the populace into groups. This is the *REAL* racism that is out there. More aligned with the idea that the target audience of the media needs to be alienated against the target audience of another media.
It appears to me that those running these media have every intention of enjoying sitting back and chomping on their popcorn while those of us in the trenches of life run around stabbing one another in the back/face/leg/arm/chest as frequently as we can.
Then again, perhaps I'm just awake, and not living the dream.
Beer, at least an attempt was made at a democratic process -- celebrate *THAT* at least.
Sadly it applied equally in the Dominican Republic the last we were there.
Perhaps somewhat more disturbing was the noise one herd made when they discovered that the pool boys had picked them all up around 8:30 and put them back. That lot would give German tourists a bad name in any location. I assumed that they were a specific subsect of German.
GK, Have a cold one for affirming that its not a standard practice.
A prescient french expression.

@Voyna, I'm assuming that all the quacking will cover the real discussion.
Any word on integration with other tools with this set of toys?
Pretty little Fenec. It needs more treats.
No, they are not taking over. They've been running the show for the last 30 years.

"Now we're heading back to the idea of editing reality"
Umm. Heading back?
You really haven't been paying much attention to mainstream media/social media have you?. Its just become a cultural phenomenon now.
"We'll be back soon" message at the site so I can't check my laptop.
ethernet please, although I don't care if its on copper or optical.
connect em all to the network directly, slap clustering software on the SOC. Use IPMI/RESTful.
do it smart and use IPV6 local domain for the disk to disk comms and clustering control, put the objectstore REST api on ipv4 for the clients.
Wheeeee. 4 or 5 C&C/Index servers. Who needs big storage systems.

I agree. Most 'candy bars' don't have enough chocolate in them to warrant the effort. Mind you we have a local chocolatier that notes their equipment can't work on >75% due to viscosity issues. I'll pass the source data to them. Might warrant both a weekend working on the kit and a tasting session.
< points at the other article >
There's a poster about that would tell y'all it was a lie cooked up by the scientific community to bend your brain, and that they had no clue what they were talking about. Those things are complete lies, never happened, can't happen. And he can prove it by throwing out most of the science.

Upvoted. You've managed to sum up my perspective. With startlingly similar perspective.
