just because you were right doesnt mean you are not a nutter
I wish phones were as stable as pc's. Cyanogen doesnt install on any of the phones I could use. Come to think of it - possibly Linux has been coat-tailing on MS success in keeping PC hardware standardised.
The article title and some of the comments here sound like something out of the Daily Mail.
Possibly for Psycho Prof. Pigeon it is all a big joke studying and experimenting on the masses seeing how they can be manipulated and he doesnt really give a damn about the issue itself one way or another.
I wonder if sparta!!!!!!!!!!!!! will support sync programming like ie. "normal" programming of full blown data/erp apps in other browsers can be a nightmare due to ff/webkit developers obsession with async programming ... which is itself down to their single threaded access to the ui. At least in ie there is the synchronous showmodaldialog (which firefox and chrome adopted from ie for some years) but now firefox and chrome have/are dumping this and we are using their rather bizarre "yield*" to do normal programming in those browsers and avoid the "async pyramid of doom" style.
"And the really prescient thing is that the codes used for AM, VM and SVM are all illegal characters in Utf8, and so can still work as separators in this post-ASCII world."
Well, you typically cant store or transmit it officially as "utf-8" because standards based systems choke on illegal bytes. ioconv to some new unicode chars solves that easily enough though.
Pick IS key value store AND multivalues. Awesome database in its time but failure as an operating system. We still use it very profitably in a different guise.
"dont be evil" is a command to us from our overlord
why dont you just say "some of my best friends are into BDSM"
is someone like baron sacha cohen a "good" troll?
sounds like 15$/month/server or $180/year/server to rent their software, on full time basis anyway
I dropped catchalls because it ended up over time being massively spammed but come to think of it you could give out random emails on every occasion but all ending in xyz and then dump everything that doesnt end up in xyz.
+1 remmina ... all your rdp/ssh/scp connections in 1 and you learn where the bugs are and avoid them. on windows tunnelier is the same tool ... thankfully windows is in the past for me
I dont want to configure logs to be text. I want them to be text by default and optionally something extra which I may come to accept in time given practical proof.
that no packages are dependent on systemd surely tells you something about systemd
more likely to be a deliberate shift left of the IA to be UV on the keyboard I surmise
the motivation for systemd could be money and salaries as much as anything. they are doing something different and betting the farm on it. just so sad that Debian is moving to it before Redhat has proven it.
I dont even CARE if it is better! It is NOT the Linux way and Linux is DOING FINE - look at Ubuntu breaking into the various EU organisations as a DESKTOP! Getting a desktop userland OS from Redhat and somebody with the personality of Poett will not end well in the years that come. I'm mourning Debian already.
"Remind me again what prevents the average windows user from taking up Linux in its stead. 8o)"
if user has a problem on windows they blame themselves. If user has a problem on linux .. they blame linux because of psychological FUD like the stuff you thoughtlessly babble. Which leaves Linux for the canny average users .. not just the techno-skilled. Ubuntu desktop works transparently on the Dell computers we use. The tricks that can be used by techno-skilled users on linux simply are not available to average users anywhere and certainly not on windows even by techno-skilled users.
" There is no way the herd of cats that is the "Linux community" is going to be forced into any single solution by some company or evil overlord."
The point is that systemd is trying to do this .. hence all the yowling cats.
I found zfs isnt perfect ... you cant reduce volumes in size afaik so I went with btrfs - which is natively in linux kernel for those who cant bsd
superb 40 minute intro to mechanical analog calculus
With a local embedded and discoverable key. Or can you pick which one you want free?
"The fact that the kernel crew are committed to abandoning ext4 in favour of this junk is simply terrifying." ... or indicates that you are hysterical and/or dont know what you are talking about
Ive been using btrfs for hourly daily weekly monthly snapshotting of BACKUPS on a sync style backup server for about 10 small servers over the past few years. It has been a dream allowing trivially easy access to three months of file versions. zfs didnt allow me to reduce a pool size so I turned away from it early on. I thank SUSE's confidence in btrfs for enabling me to overcome the "beware" signs plastered all over btrfs a few years ago.
and he is in denial that the government is out of control and there are daily abuses of power that affect thousands and chill millions
o the irony
people want restores not backups .. is your restore working? and how to really really tell?
they want restores!
passing corporate money to friends who will return the favour personally. one of the perks of being a boss
or magic "client-side encryption" allows you to store all your stuff in the cloud but it is only unencrypted in your phone/pc. best of all worlds and surprisingly hard to find
"pulseaudio, NetworkManager and systemd" all from LP's team ... suddenly it is all beginning to make sense! Linux is making a Faustian bargain.
from the tone of his email it seems that he knows that he has lost the argument and now tries to savage the community to save his own face
and why not?
maybe there is no happy medium regarding gun control laws
if cloud had been client-side encrypted from the beginning there would have been no problem with it but even now, open source cloud tools like owncloud dont support it.
chris poole of 4chan has more useful ideas about the uses and abuses of identity and anonymity
because breaking into and stepping through code examining variables etc etc is the fastest way to debug any code ...
and a personal rant about a valuable feature missing from all the current in-browser debuggers - visual studio (but not the free express versions) also allows changing the "current" line to step from a different line. this enables much richer debugging of tricky issues by allowing restepping through code, say after changing local variables, without having to restart from the beginning
Just goes to show that the rich and powerful are not subject to police abuse. The gall of police to try it on pols shows their arrogance.
I think that people should not be able to issue their own password but be able to receive randomish but memorablish passwords without great entropy to their email address on request. Three password or other failures would cause account lockout until some procedure is followed - possibly as simple as requesting a new password to their email address. This will solve a massive range of problems but introduce other problems which I think might be lessor.
nice and about time!!!
so ironic that a man who could expand his mind to conceive that time was not constant everywhere, had difficulty to believe that things truly happen randomly at the quantum level
The simplicity of the overall dropbox experience is the attraction for me and most I suspect. They have no other job to do but please you on storage.
"Only one thing I cant stand. Cultural intolerance ... and the Dutch!"
You are projecting. Also you are an ankle-biter.
can an inspector tell if it is driven by a human or not after being in a car with a blind between driver and passenger for one hour - or something like that.
also autoautos to be bright orange initially. over 10 years we will adapt as we learn
Oak can be nobbled by US forcing its citizen NOT to sign the page. I wonder if that could happen.
