Re: Would be nice if it didn't hang on boot
I'm sorry, but how is a DRIVE too new? That makes no sense.

While HPe still owns OpenVMS, they licensed development of it out to VMS Software. VMS seems to have hired a lot of the original VMS devs.
Too bad they didn't do the same for Tru64...
How does being prepared make you less of a man, exactly?
So what you're saying is that people who get upset immediately turn to murder?
You forgot explosives too. Soo much fun wrapped into one!
I had to down vote just for the abuse of apostrophes. Sorry, it's a personal pet peeve...
Windows 8.1 + Classic Shell will give you until 2023, so an extra 3 years. I finally went from 7 to 8.1+CS and I'm not regretting it at all. Now without CS, that's a whole other story...
That's called security through obscurity.
I'd sure hope that they didn't meat their people out! That's pretty low standards!
How much did Cisco PR pay El Reg for this "native advertisement"? :(
With Xen (like a lot of hypervisor platforms), the "NICs" and "storage devices" are just message passing drivers back to the hypervisor. There is no emulation overhead, just overhead of the message passing (eg, context switches).
This also isn't just about fixing TCP/IP by a long shot.
Monoprice and Amazon Basic cables are both MFi verified and much less than $12!
Technically both OS X/Darwin/XNU and Tru64 aka Digital UNIX aka OSF/1 used a hybrid kernel, just like NT does.
Java is horrible, but using .NET and HTML 5 as better examples, wow.
.NET's compatibility is slightly better, but you still need 1.1, 3.5, and 4.6.1 installed to cover all the bases. MS also has pushed out a few security fixes to .NET also.
More than likely it was just a false positive from your AV app, seeing as the AV probably doesn't grok the binaries (they're probably ELF vs Windows PE).
It's mainly used on "appliances" (along with a BIOS password) as an attempt to keep people from easily getting root on the machine and poking around (eg by adding "init=/bin/sh" to the command line).
Now if somebody would just revive Tru64 aka Digital UNIX aka OSF/1, all would be right with the world again. Oh, and Alpha too, of course, although I guess China is already doing that...
You must be new here...
I wish! The OS/2 ATMs were so much faster than these damn XPe ones. They're so crazy slow it's aggravating!
One thing I did notice that you listed prices for the others, but I don't recall seeing a price for the Supermicro?
10GE/40GE NICs are fairly reasonable, actually. 10GE switches are a little pricey though, and 40GE ones are highway robbery....
UF still exists? I stopped reading it over 18 years ago!
8.1 w/ Classic Shell is just as good, if not better, than 7 IMHO.
However 10 is just a huge mess for me. On one of my Acer laptops, 7 & 8.1 work fine, as soon as I go to 10 (either clean install or upgrade), the 2nd HDD and DVD drives both stop working. I've tried all kinds of workarounds, registry edits, hacks, etc. I've just given up and gone back to 8.1. Next step, Mac!
Did Matt Bryant start posting as an AC?
Not all. My Target credit card not only doesn't have a magstripe at all, but it's only chip+PIN. No signature accepted at all.
That's not at all what's going on here. They wanted free peering, yet they're not a "peer", aka another network provider.
I'm sorry, but HP-UX is horrible crap too. Tru64 was much much better until HPaq took it behind the shed...
Man I miss the old OS/2 ATMs. The new XP Embedded ones are so slow and buggy (you can hear the "device disconnected" and "device connected" tones when it resets hardware on it). They're so slow I swear that they purposely add more prompts to the damn things just to make them "feel" like they're responsive!
Just check a gun with your bag. Then you're actually required to use a real lock!
KVM is GPL, so I'm not sure they'd go for that. FreeBSD has the BSD-licensed bhyve though, so I'm not sure why they don't just port that.
Last I checked Matt, Solaris runs fine on Intel. I wouldn't call it slow either.
I'm pretty sure the only use for Flash on GitHub is the copy URL-to-clipboard button for people that are too lazy to select+copy for themselves.
I don't get why people can't comprehend this.. There is nothing for retailers to do except enable NFC on their POS systems. If NFC works (eg, your NFC-based credit card), then Apple Pay already "just works".
No, WS2012 *R2* is the current offering.
Lucky you. The false positives on mine have been horrendous lately! Even from places I've received mail from for years!
Have you not heard of KMS?
But it worked so well for Debian!
That test is so bogus. From the text at the bottom:
"Plaintext HTTP/1.1 is compared against encrypted SPDY HTTPS..."
So it's apples vs oranges.
Remember, these are Xen-based machines. I think it's a limit between the version of Xen and the version of the Linux kernel running the dom0.
Some setups like Citrix' XenServer uses a 64-bit Xen kernel with a 32-bit PAE Linux dom0, in an attempt to keep the control plane as compact as possible.
Unless you're talking about L3 switches with routing support, L2 switches operate at the Ethernet layer, they don't care if you're running IPv4, IPV6, or even IPX/SPX over it.
Most firewalls default to blocking inbound IPv6 connections that aren't associated with an already established outbound IPv6 connection, just like they already do with IPv4. So I don't understand how you think it would suddenly be less secure?
Sadly, Hughes owns a patent on the lunar flyby method, so the ESA would probably have to pay some kind of royalty or something.
Ours has had the machines for years, but they don't work. Eg, I've tried my Citi card with it, and it just errors out.
I'm sorry. While KVM had a surge of activity, Xen is anything but obsolete.
Except sales tax here is usually around 8.5%, not 20%.
You were right.. until recently.
Sprint, Verizon, and MetroPCS are all CDMA carriers, but they also have LTE networks. LTE requires the SIM card. So yes, Sprint has SIMs. Sprint's old Nextel iDEN network also used SIMs.
The CDMA2000 spec actually had a "R-UIM", which was basically a SIM, but of course the US CDMA carriers avoided them, because they wanted lockdown.
I have 3 Vzw LTE SIMs sitting right here, actually...
You mean 3rd time around:
WinCE / Windows Mobile
KiN / KiN OS
The US had digital CDMA networks in the 90s.
Roll on Curve25519!
They're making sure Amazon recontributes to their reelection campaigns again next time!
