Burgular Alarm

Had that exact same problem last week, when coming into the office for a software release. At 3am. Urgh.

Re: Burglar Alarm Fix

Yes, with a similar problem, didn't want to use different alarm code. Would have needed to change bank pin too.

It's a right pain when you have to change your birthday too.

Re: Or join the 21st century.....

If you spent 10 years as a DBA, you really should have learnt that it's not the backups that are important, it's the restores.

SQL Server for Linux: A sign of Microsoft's weakness. Sort of

Gazareth

"then you need to license EVERY CPU controlled from the same VCenter"

I don't think that's too different to how you have to license SQL on VMWare/other virtualisation platforms.Gets a bit fuzzier with SA though.

Although I'm no licensing expert.

Don't think the drives need cooling particularly. Or at least, not to the level that would require liquid cooling.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – blisteringly big banter, brawls and brio

Gazareth

Re: Blacklist

I believe so. Ultron had identical mannerisms to Red. Amusingly, to reflect the height of the character he had to act with snail-like eyes on stalks on his head. Imagine that if you will.

I don't see any spoilers there. Personally I'd rate it as enjoyable but worse than the first Avengers film.

Main problem for me was trying to fit too much content into a 140 minute film. Not least due to the sheer number of characters. Make it 3 hours and I bet it'd be great.

Hola HoloLens: Reg man gets face time with Microsoft's holographic headset

Gazareth

Re: So pray tell,

"Reporting on technology will make anyone a bit grizzled and cynical over time, but occasionally something comes along that just blows you away. HoloLens is the fourth such creation to make this hack say "Holy f**k!" (in a good way) in the last two decades."

So 3 other tech creations over 2 decades, rather than 3 other facets of the HoloLens themselves.

(Which reading about has elicited as response of "Holy f**k!" (in a good way) from me :))

Boffins: Searching for ALIENS is like looking for PIZZA among students

Gazareth

"It's like college students and pizza. If you see pizza in a room, and there's also college students in the room, chances are the pizza was freshly delivered, because students will eat the pizza quickly."

Well, apart from the half they keep for breakfast.

Re: No, not quite

I was going to say this too, although the article does go on to say the Bridge is still needed if you're going for the 5.1 setup.
