Fabric OS v6.3.1b is very old

That is a pretty historic release (most 8 and 16GBit switches should run v7), but then again I would not bet this to be fixed in v7.

ESA tries UPLOADING PATCH to Philae lander to fix radios

seven of five

What then?

easy: send in a probe which can retrieve Philae and return it to where we can plug a cable. Has to be an orbital facility, though (contamination, you know), so we need to build that first.

We can practise by picking up spirit and fixing that though little guy for another round.

At LAST: RC4 gets the stake through the heart

seven of five

Re: Good luck, with some devices embedded management servers...

> and start complaining to manufacturers that their firmware is shit

Most of the affected systems are just plain old and EOL. Many vendors will gladly sell you the successor which does not use RC4 anymore.

But quite often there is a very good reason to still use the old product - dependent software releases (or worse, dependent hardware), inability to get migration downtime and of course: money.

versus?

F-35 vs A10? Obviously not head on, as the F-35 does not have enough firepower to bring a hog down - you need the navy for this :)

yes, I know. Its just I am a tad sad to see the hogs finally leaving. But loitering above a battlefield to pick off tanks has become pretty dangerous these days. (really) last of the gunfighters[1].

Oracle to certify its database v.12c for Windows 10

Re: Hold on a sec: "the 32-bit [...] versions of Windows 10"

Yes, but we did not exactly run version12 on this kind of hardware. Ah, back in the days when 32GB disk still required eight drives. Eleven, actually, as you needed two raid groups (6+1 was the largest allowed on the controller) and you DEFINITLY wanted a hot spare.

Hold on a sec: "the 32-bit [...] versions of Windows 10"

This must have escaped me until now.

a 32 Bit version of windows 10?

Honestly: why? The AMD64 extensions are like 10 years old and more than 3GB ram are cheap since forever. What purpose could a dedicated 32Bit OS in the year 2015 possibly fullfill?

Yes, I know, wrong thread an all that...

I am with you on this, though I was under the impression there was some kind of gentlemans agreement gizmos need mainframe compatibility in order to be called enterprise and everything else being "just midrange". No matter how quick, smart oder big said midrange thingy is...

Of course it is "late and over budget". It is a project, after all. And not only a governmental, multinational, but a military one.

Do you have a timeframe for this? Or other non-NDAed info? Our basis guys are running around beating that HANA drum all day and I would really prefer not to be responsible for some rackloads of redhat stuff doing the work of my 9117s. But it looks like they will start to make facts rather soon and then I´m in for the pound...
