@AC "Fox is probably the least slanted news."
You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.
@GrumpyKiwi: You do know that 1 thou is 25.4µm or 25400nm, don't you?
Reminder: water molecules are 0.27nm in size. So while the ocean definitely sneers at 1/1000th of an inch, it definitely doesn't sneer at nanometers...
@Big John: Sorry to confuse your made up mind with facts, but over 90% of scientists that have anything to do with climate science say that humans are responsible for global warming (97% if we talk about active researchers). Over 80% of scientists in general say that humans are responsible for global warming:
The only swindle that is happening is Shell, BP and Koch brothers producing false or misleading information about AGW.
> to develop best practices that would "not hinder innovation."
aren't business process patents already valid in the US of A?
isn't that Facebook's job?
@Charles 9: that's exactly what I'm talking about. The queries return different IPs with every query, and they have time to live measured in minutes because they use DNS for load balancing. While in ye olde times results would have time to live measured in hours or days.
they've abused DNS system and now they suffered the consequences
If only the DNS system was distributed and used local caching for the queries...
Alas, we all know that it was introduced for load leveling purposes, so they couldn't have predicted it. /s
bpf stopped to be a stream matcher good few releases ago, it's a generic system that just happens to be the same thing you use for packet capture
it is vulnerable to replay attacks, but the standard will include information about mitigation and kinds of data client can send in the 0-RTT.
So yes, it's correct that your spider senses are tingling, and unless you're a real Time To First Byte junkie, you're better off not using it. Especially as browsers will need to figure out what is 0-RTT viable or not.
Except it hasn't been. Only after 30 June 2018 will they require TLSv1.1 (not even TLSv1.2!):
Not that you shouldn't have been on TLSv1.2 for few years already!
> Nice thought, but I think most manufacturers will just shut down the product line rather than do fixes.
and nothing of value will be lost
"said the requirement on Seesaw were that it was built using Google's Go language"
aah, the Not Invented Here syndrome! Google really has been suffering from it lately.
I can't even begin to imagine to how many known exploits it is vulnerable now.
Please, drag them into the 2000's, even if they kick and scream.
"meaning the Home Office can seize wages as proceeds of crime for the first time."
I'm assuming that this will be the wages of the employers of the illegal immigrants? Doesn't it take two to tango?
OV certificates are useless, they don't provide any additional functionality over Domain Validated certificates.
then they should have asked the researchers to publish the exploit, say, 4 weeks after the patch is available
they already were in contact with them before!
Yes Microsoft, after the whole Windows 10 forced update fiasco you sure have a lot of goodwill still to burn, sure you do.
Protip: the rest of world didn't interpret that variable as a signed, you're in the negative
I guess that means that any published and widely used prime should have https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elliptic_curve_primality proof attached...
> No real interest except amongst the consumers,
ou contrair! the people that buy them are interested in them being as cheap as possible and if that means few bad apples, so be it
we call those antipatterns
"suffering through 4 years of [...] liberal indoctrination"
to me it looks like you are the problem, not the solution
I'm betting that false positive and false negative rates are above 50%
openssl-0.9.8zh is also vulnerable but patches won't be made for it
The solution it is to not make it cheaper: fine the companies that are hacked.
it may not look like this, but I have on high authority that software is written by humans and it's common for humans to err
where are the robotic overlords where you need them!?
> distinguishes quality software from poor hacks.
"poor hacks"? that's a new term for Internet of Things?
@veti just like we're still talking just how stupid of an idea is to fight Russia in winter (unless you're the Mongols), we will be talking how moronic the decision of UK was to leave the EU.
so get used to it
the point is that those suburban areas have higher population density than Europe, and they still have slower and vastly more expensive Internet
at this point in time, I have fewer problems with a BLEEDING EDGE, ROLLING RELEASE distro like Arch than I see people have with Win 10
now you'd have to go to LFS to have worse experience with Linux than in Windows, it would be funny if it weren't so pathethic
Nuke it? It needs a relativistic kill vehicle! High orbital bombardment!
ain't that a good thing? after that you can say "oh, win 10? I'm afraid that is double my usual rate"
@fidodogbreath the problem is that the notification system works only in local environment, with a roaming owner it is ineffective
For moment there, I completely forgot about the atrocious security of the US carriers
(not that others are not bad in their own right, but some are more... "special" than others)
with a First Past The Post voting system, if you don't vote on the candidate, it is as good as voting for the opposing party candidate
the whole voting system should be changed to something like single transferable vote
I would have agree with you, if the "ones that killed innovation" weren't saying that misogyny, racism and xenophobia are bad for this (or in fact any) country.
it's like saying, "this professor is wrong about climate change, I saw him jaywalking a month ago!"
@DougS you mean just like the 3 year cadence of the Nexus devices?
'cause it's exactly what google is doing, they drop support for "Nexii" like a hot potato right after the 3 year mark
it's a shitfest, all of it
not to mention that a CA which would sign certificate for the Blue Coat system would very quickly be removed from Mozilla's and Microsoft's trust stores
@AC and that's the crux of the matter
I have no problem with US enforcement agencies asking EU enforcement agencies for information in EU. But it must go through EU court, with EU laws and EU judges.
@bombastic bob: right, because "heroes" are incapable of doing evil things
see also: The Hague Invasion Act
you're forgetting that USA is "exceptional" and that they will maybe sign, but never ratify this new law
you know, like domestic laws apply only to some people, just not those in establishment or enforcement...
@fidodogbreath: give credit where credit is due! After all, he's the guy that killed Hitler...
wait aren't you so against ID cards because they remind you of those food stamps from those "glorious" times?
yes, the times when you were young were much better, but it's because you were young, you had the vigour to learn new stuff, strength to overcome obstacles, not because they were better times
now forgive us youngsters while we're working on beating yet another all time world-wide low for people living under the poverty line and illiteracy rates
honestly, I see Turkey meeting the requirements earlier...
you think UK will get access to common market without a deal like Norway? ha! not if French have anything to say about it (psst: they do)
@ckm5: UK is not the whole Europe...
of course it's a take-over attempt
there's no objective reason to run BSD over Linux. Features, speed, programmers, either Linux has it all, or can simply run BSD stuff
but BSD doesn't have this pesky GPL business so when they decide it's enough of this OSS lip service, MS can just close it up
(See also: core Android applications that are no longer developed in AOSP)
> Heck, Microsoft might pick up the ball and write in support for Bing and sell their own
> Android that is freer than the one Google offers. Wouldn't that be a crazy turnaround?
with current Microsoft and current Google, that's not exactly inconceivable...
@Unicornpiss: in letting it go.
Once you start using it, you basically will use it forever. So you need a Windows Server to host it.
I was referring only to the addictiveness of it, nothing more.
Active Directory is worse than crack cocaine...
