Russia never really left tsardom, not for the vast majority of population
one was "cobbled" together by "amateurs" and is given out for free while the other hikes a price of a kidney in worse parts of the globe and was "perfected" by "professionals" over a course of a decade and a half
Those safes are running Windows!
you still need a core technology that will provide for the grid base load
renewables like wind and solar can't do it, oil, gas and coal are bad for carbon emissions
"Even taking into account increased instances of radiation-induced cancer that aren't noticed until nearly half a century later?"
yes, including those
it's not hard, as radiation-induced cancer accounts for less than 1% of non-thyroid cancer incidence from stuff like Chernobyl
more people are dying of cancer because we live long enough to die of cancer, not because there is radioactive stuff everywhere
or maybe in far east the women have less choices of jobs that will provide for themselves so they choose the best paying ones, not the ones they are most interested in?
what? don't the tickets have to be registered and you get a printout with a unique ID?
knowing Disney and they history of litigation, that would end in some international tribunal (you say it's not applicable? oh, they will find a way, or they will make a way)
not that I wouldn't like to see them burn money... would be better only if lawyers didn't get paid in that
Can we get people that know what they are talking about and not just ones that want to be "hip"?
I don't see "Do the right thing and migrate them to the next version of Windows" as rational and well thought, sorry.
Even a shred of "if you depend on MS for this or this only, then you should see if maybe this whole Leenyux thing is up your alley" would be ok. Not this decree given from ivory tower.
"In one month? Not going to happen."
because you can totally migrate from 2003 to 2012R2 in a month. /s
The whole point of criticism is that if you have a huge task at hand, no matter how you cut it, so maybe you should take a look at all the options, objectively.
"Decades of being a Microsoft partner and a systems administrator that makes a living from Microsoft"
oh, right, so you have a complete and full picture of what the "dark side of the force" (Unix) has to offer currently /s
"For the record, my company is a Microsoft Partner - (...) we're pretty much participating in order to get the 10 people's worth of Microsoft Action Pack Subscription (MAPS) licenses."
ever thought that this is not the case for the vast majority of companies out there? And that they would have to re-purchase all the Server licences, all the CALs, and so on?
"Anyone who seriously counsels companies with less than a month left to try moving from Windows to *nix needs to be prevented from working in IT"
anyone who has painted themselves into such a corner should be prevented from working in IT, no matter the platform
Now, since your arm is stuck in raw sewage up to your shoulder (be it yours or somebody else doing), you will spend the next few months cleaning it up, no matter if you pick the Penguin or the Redmond.
You should evaluate your options, not blindly go same route you were going.
sorry, my mistake for looking for objectivity in a press article
The article does mention that they did throw away quarter of a million of lines...
Also, it's rather hard to implement new features in negative code, especially significant ones, like support for new class of GPU...
@h4rm0ny:actually not any more. Now the major number will change when Torvalds feels like it.
Let's just hope he won't aim to catch up to the Firefox/Chromium team
"These days, compilers can write assembler better than humans can."
Not if said assembler is supposed to be:
* strict constant time
* resistant to radio emissions and power use analysis
you think TLS is bad?
take a look at X.509
you'll need a tanker's worth of mind bleach for that
oh, right 6k LOC of code
hardly an achievement given that it implements just the absolute bare minimum (client certificates? ha!)
also guess what is used for actual cryptography (hint: it starts with O and ends with SSL)
Does it help with buffer overflows?
No? Then not interested.
What's the point of checking if the code is signed if the code is still coming from Adobe?
We need to "trust" all CAs in operation in TLS and we know this is bad, so now we're going to trust all big software makers. How exactly does that make the situation better?
you mean, like here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/245030 ?
actually, you can have rootless X for some time now, dunno how many distros default to that
Watch out for the pitchforks!
This is a heated debate, not a cold reasoned calculation!
<insert calls to patriarchy, discrimination, etc. here>
technically speaking it is news
it's certainly not newsworthy, I'll give you that
the world is changing, get over it
And the most common password isn't 1234 any more, its
:) :) :( ;)
Chimps communicate using grunts.
Doesn't make the communication any meaningful outside their social circle, but it's useful enough to attract a mate and get rid of competition.
salt just needs to be unique, 256 bit one is beyond overkill, it requires there to be 2^128 accounts before the chance of two salts repeating comes into 50% probability territory.
The UK then could officially become the Air Strip One it so desperately wants.
"They would both then have to apply to join the EU, which would require them to join the Euro, you think that the Scots would be that daft?"
where this FUD comes from?!
You don't have to join the Eurozone to join EU. Neither Czech Republic, Poland or Croata use Euro!
just because it's not required doesn't mean it's not a good idea, even with A(EC)DH or self-signed certs
if you run puppet or ansible you are aware and have catalogued every single one machine, including transient virtual ones
problem is that IT is woefully underfunded and its importance underrated
we really need to change that, because a world where a bored teenager will be able to wreck half the federal agencies is not a nice one when really malicious actors start using it
the only way to fix it is to start finger pointing and demanding real solutions, not just "security audits" that achieve squat
"Mom, I have given a friend a copy of GDB, now Interpol is looking for me as an arms dealer."
Seriously, has this agreement ever helped? Al Queida had guns from CIA, South American drug lords from FBI... It's such a massive FAIL that I have no words to describe it
Sony hack costing $15 million? I think they counted only the cost of cleaning ladies and detergents, not BOFHs working overtime.
it's as if users already weren't trained to click through all the cert warnings by corporate networks and home routers.
actually, most sites will get faster after switch to HTTPS as the traffic won't be inspected and analysed by everybody on the way
"Puzzled Happy Face with Eye Twitch."
damn you, I'm in stitches!
I'm surprised that it's only 30%. I would have put this closer to 30% not being vulnerable.
Developers don't care for security, they just want their apps to work.
Icon as the whole Docker idea makes me do that.
@AC 28 May 2015: Last time I checked Red Hat was still paying salaries to all employees and contractors... and then releasing that work for free under OSI approved licenses...
you forgot to add that will also run Linux 2.2 or other as ancient OS
you missed the part where he is the paying customer, and as a paying customer he gets worse experience than a pirate
if you have iso md5 or sha1 sums, you can record them on read only media and then use a known good OS (this 5 year old Linux live CD will do fine) to verify it on an airgapped PC
similarly with the files, just switch the read only media to a disk with installed system behind a read-only adapter
Linux, 'cause this features come standard there
as Chozo said, this doesn't help for canvas fingerprinting
well, how about the distributors providing a site with half as much of content in a single place that I can watch on demand on any device of my choosing, without problems with stupid DRM
most of Europe doesn't even get Netflix, yet alone Netflix with the same content as in US
With search results they are precise to a single comma placement, but with YouTube they are fine to comply to all the shotgun fired DMCA takedowns, even if the claimed reason is they include barely audible music in public domain.
If you ever wondered who Google does respond to...
Bug fixes to such an old OS? ha, good one!
do you want a Pentium Pro with them, or those MMX extensions are too newfangled too?
"What are these few basic checks that can make a self-signed certificate trustworthy and give full confidence to all your visitors?"
Those are the same checks that regular certificates from "big names" do - check if the email comes from [email protected] or [email protected] or that you can place a file with specific content on the server. All domain validated certificates require you to have control over that only.
The certificate doesn't mean that the content is trustworthy or that the content comes from a given entity (unless it's a green-bar-enabling EV certificate). It just says that the same people that controlled the domain at some past time are the ones that are controlling the connection you are doing right now.
The mineshaft^W evilness gap!
It's snowing in hell, obviously
Except the "given away Win 10" is actually a 1 year trial copy
