Guardian and Independent. Both left or liberal in the pejorative sense. Both hate money and economic success.
The authors real knowledge of Dubai seems based on the few nasty articles about it in the West over the past few years, couched in the language of propaganda and probably motivated by people who hate or cant understand the idea of any Arabs ever doing any good. Dubai is an oasis of tolerance compared to the majority of the Arab world. London and New York would have been money grubbing and born out of cheap labour so the hypocrisy is rank.
otherwise why would they be paid?
If the US admin's finest legal mind tells Google that they are barking up the wrong tree and there is a better tree to bark up, then why dont they do so? and why didnt they do so in the first place?
If you want to summarise Lab and the Cons use my phrase "Daddy makes it and Mummy spends it". I leave you to work out who is who.
The point of this article is that large iphones are removing the need for ipad for many people. I use my large phone and no pad and many of my friends are starting to do the same despite the initial mockery. Apple are doing well in the large phone category but by copying Samsung who we have to thank for their vision in providing the large phone format NOT APPLE. Long may Apple to continue their success but they are riding more on goodwill at the moment. iWatch vanity project for example.
"Any new feature should be put in libraries". Like any developer you long for simplicity ... but you seem to forget the famous saying that everything should be as simple as possible BUT NO SIMPLER. There are relatively few C++ programmers so the average comment here is from programmers who dont use and dont really understand C++ and instead conceitedly grandstand their ignorance to mostly more of the same. bleh!
"a cheap and easy way out instead of doing something properly." sums up systemd neatly.
"btrfs is a bad copy of ZFS" ... downvoted for this
"The corporate ownership of the US is so successful that for instance over half of Americans still don't acknowledge that Global Warming is real " ... one track mind hey? and tunnel vision for good effect.
the article is predicated on the concept that women decided. that is unnecessary I think. just as possible that MEN decided to give their daughters to men with bling. half-based on their wives nagging maybe ... but we can drop the feminist fantasies and imagine it was some kind of clan decision in the past. it still is in India largely today for example.

"This is a piece of paper, <snip>, which can be used in court as evidence that a “course of conduct of harassment” took place."
This needs some backing up I think.
I use pfsense and atom based netbooks £50 from ebay and pfsense with a usb ethernet adapter to provide the 2nd ethernet connection ... usb2 can handle 20Mb adsl connections. they are not quite as low power as ordinary routers .. but close
"I think the thing you miss is that for chrome and safari at least, they accept the fallback even if it wasn't initially offered. That is the client side issue."
AHHHHH! thank you! ... security bods minds work in devious ways that normal brains cannot imagine
if the server will accept low sec connnection then isnt it as much to blame?
edit: no as another comment explained ... approx "the client accepts low sec even if it wasnt originally offered"
lack of a stable binary interface for bin and lib (ABI) in the linux world strongly encourages presence of source code and programmer at regular intervals .. unlike windows which has excellent binary stability running decades old binaries without modifications .. and hence little sign of the source code or programmers. I prefer having source code and programmers around .. but then I would wouldnt I.
small companies are just fine as far as I am concerned ... it is the large ones that you have to keep an eye on. therefore reporting and commenting on the percentage of individuals is of minimal interest to me
the politician class of course because they become leaders of a european county. it is no wonder that the scottish leadership is for it, because it will be good for them regardless of whether it is good for scotland.
At 1USD/TB/Month or 12USD/TB/Year to hire their software it seems like nothing. or does it require some other cost to get started?
if only pfsense would run on arm - but it is tied to freebsd and therefore intel/amd. i know the reason is that freebsd is supposed to be more secure but - o well ... freetards cant be choosers.
can we have the tl;dr version pls?
"The motivation was to acquire the people and skills." .. perhaps in a very general sense
Creating good 3D content at what appears to be horrifically low resolution seems to create more enjoyment for more people than higher res worlds like Second Life etc. It is something like expressionist painting or Lego.
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?
