Dev gives HBO free math tips to nail Game of Thrones pirate leakers

seven of five

multiple sources

so if the leakers have multiple sources and multiplex their release from these on a five minute timeslot basis we get a completely new "watermark" worthless to the copyright holders.

SAP unveils its biggest thing for 20 YEARS: Core suite with HANA

seven of five

> SAP is about to release a version of HANA on IBM Power so P795 with 16TB and above

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...

pretty, pretty please?

Drunk on Friday night? Then YOU probably DIDN'T spot Facebook's privacy tweak

seven of five

> "Hamburg's privacy regulator "

> Not Germany's, Hamburg's. A privacy regulator per city! That's more like it!

Hamburg is one of the states which constitute the "Federal Repuplic"

Hamburg and Bremen draw this right from the old Hanse days, Berlin from... uh, somewhere else.

So it is one regulator per state.

iirc they only have consulting function anyway, so...

btw: this results in Hamburg using "HH" as a citycode on the numberplate ("Hansestadt Hamburg") while H went to the much smaller Hanover.

This makes you realise:

Just how great the F-4 and the F-16 really were. I do not expect another design ever to be this good again. F/A 18 might come close.

around 100k a day for incompetence above and beyond all deemed possible? Sounds like a bargain.

...otoh, thats a mere 40m per year, how about shutting down all customer facing services and use their assets in speculation, paying off the fine from the proceedings?

Hey small biz: You know what you need? A tape library – Overland

seven of five

Quite a few small businesses run "easy" backup solution, doing a full GFS rotation for every server they have.

6 per week, 5 per month and another 13 for the year times three servers and all your tapes are used up. Or rather allocated.

And being able to take something in your hand and say "that´s the filemailserver from the 66th of maycember" gives the poor slob which does "that computer stuff" some confidence.

Yes, that is rather inefficient, but a single drive from an array is more difficult to bring offsite. and its not all eggs in one basket (array) as well.

I can see the point.

"a "simple thing" – a light-up "do not remove" indicator – that warns admins not to yank out a drive while it is reading, writing, or being rebuilt,"

like an activity led? Now thats smart, why hasn´t somebody else... oh, wait.

This kind of error usually occours if the system owner saves on human ressources (either through lack of sleep or lack of education)

Cloud storage rains on '800lb Fibre Channel gorilla' Brocade

seven of five

Getting bought is not an option as neither IBM nor HP would tolerate this - relabeled Brocade hardware is central to both companies.

Buying Mellanox -albeit cool- would just give them another niche unless the could add mellanox IB technology to their etherstuff. otoh, the ethernet market is corned by cisco, so it would not make sense.

They might concentrate on "anything but ethernet" with mellanox, but.. dunno, is this worth it? Mellanox would not come cheap.
