"where a company charges higher prices to one group of consumers to subsidise lower prices for another group."
Sorry i thought this was called "living in the UK"
More people need to be talking about taking up arms against the racists.
"“I'm worried that anyone is still using java to be honest"
Totally with you on the log files.
Once was asked to look at a slow program on an AS/400. Dug into it a little to see it was logging "The message is " + xml every other line. Set log level to ERROR and box runs 3x quicker. Hailed as a miracle worker.
how'd you like them apples
Its £11 Billion! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-37220799
How'd you like them Apples!
Yey for the mice!
"Boffins will harvest the mice organs for study"
How do you even know what's on the list?
Forbes doesn't have a website. If you go there it whines about adblocking and shows nothing. So they don't have a website, they don't actually exist, there is no list.
Re: Solar Flares?
"Red dwarfs are far more variable and violent than their more stable, larger cousins. Often they are covered in starspots that can dim their emitted light by up to 40% for months at a time.... At other times, red dwarfs emit gigantic flares that can double their brightness in a matter of minutes" Says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habitability_of_red_dwarf_systems#Variability
Surprised no one has mentioned the similarities to Stephen Baxter's novel Proxima:
"Proxima Centauri, an undistinguished red dwarf star, is the nearest star to our sun - and (in this fiction), the nearest to host a world, Proxima IV, habitable by humans. But Proxima IV is unlike Earth in many ways. Huddling close to the warmth, orbiting in weeks, it keeps one face to its parent star at all times. The 'substellar point', with the star forever overhead, is a blasted desert, and the 'antistellar point' on the far side is under an ice cap in perpetual darkness. How would it be to live on such a world?"
I'm guessing the planet will be tide locked?
Of course, there is a lot more nonsense in the book. The soil bacteria changes time or something. Um right.
The weird thing is...
All of these stories are the same. Device repaired by legitimate third party or never repaired at all. Device dies with Error 53. Taken to Crapple store, and told they have to buy another for £300... AND THEY PAY THEM!!! It just beggars belief! WTF has happened to these people and their ability to think?
Re: News angle?
They don't "work", that's the issue. I am loving telling the crapple users at work how Windows "just works" when they have their constant issues with their crapbooks. "Oh, I am on Windows and I have no issues..."
Re: OS-X and Linux vulnerabilities
"Kaspersky Lab experts detected 1,499 new malicious programs for Mac OS X, 200 samples more than in the previous year."
"Compared with figures for 2010, the number of signatures created annually has increased by a factor of six."
I am not convinced the situation is the same or as flattering to OSX anymore.
i came up with this years ago. "inventors"
"Real DevOps is about bringing teams together to build a technology stack that can support agile deployment and dynamic workloads without sacrificing security and stability."
Woah. And you fall face first into the management bullshit there.
DevOps is just the latest buzzword for deployment
Go try it. How does it work when everyone is on NAT'd networks and no one has connectivity to each other?
Git is not SVN, its much, much worse.
You were warned not to use it. VC money is drying up now...
My company adopted this
Productivity has dropped through the floor. Releases now take months instead of minutes. Basically some muppets heard some buzzwords written by muppets similar to author of this article, ruined everything and proclaimed it better.
Turn off updates like any sane person? No update ever fixed anything or made anything better. Updates just bring new bugs you never had before and remove essential functionality.
Currently running Win7, two KBs installed in 6 years. Current up time 134 days. Never seen a Win 10 message on here ever. I am happy.
put a grill in the pad and open a seafood restaurant underneath.
Did the programmers building the applications, the services and all the stuff to keep it up do no work? Do they not deserve to be paid? Do the infrastructure guys who worked to deliver high capacity networks deserve nothing? What about the free advertising and bandwidth the artist gets? How much of that are they factoring in? Also, there are vulture capitalists to pay off you know.
If they want more money sell directly. If they don't like the terms, don't make their stuff available via the service. The pie got bigger but they have to share. Deal with it.
By the way, years of my work was stolen and presented here: http://www.solarapparel.com/ I'm not going to whine about it. I've found where they live.
I really don't understand the artists' case. Their not expected to live on 17 pence or anything. Its just a revenue stream - have lots of them. Sell your own merchandise. Get writing and production credits. Have video channels on multiple sites with ad placement. Play gigs.
Don't expect to do a few days work and dine out on it for the rest of your life.
nah its the VM that's doing all the real work, running on top of whatever they said they would replace windows with.
Sure, but did you miss the ideological tory slash and burn on council services? Maybe they can have them sponsored by some drinks company.
My concern is...
...that if they can't get to the evidence, sooner or later they will dispense with the need for it.
how so they know this one isn't the Higgs and the other one was something else then? Anybody actually proved what they do? Its all conjecture, based on predicated energy levels, right?
I ran windows xp on a computer decoding cable and serving it up via a tv card. At some point the power supply started making nasty noises from the fan. I stuck a wooden dowel in the back and it ran for 6 months solid with no psu fan.
Never crashed, never had a problem. Nothing wrong with XP that can't be solved by never installing anything on to it.
...was not booking a two week vacation so you'd be safely the other side of the world when they did the work. As you fixed the problem, it must have been your fault. That's beancounter logic.
How can you call it SaaS?
They make most of their money off on premise enterprise deployments. Just like all the other software vendors.
Nothing you say makes any sense. Especially "See Oracle ATG?" which is totally unrelated to their database and was built by a company they bought.
Before you were posting about your own magical insights. Did it not work out?
Re: Is there any legitimate reason to choose Oracle?
"They got them free, bundled as a more-or-less unwanted part of Sun Microsystems"
It was the point of the purchase. You're not going to tell me they did it for the flagging SPARC sales...
We all know...
...that work outsourced is work not done. So they weren't needed in the first place.
If they were needed it will rapidly go to shit as these things do. Then TCS will blame the existing system and offer to rebuild it all. They will make a total hash of it but cover it up with an army of temporary workers plugging the gaps in the process. Finally they will lose the deal to an undercutting rival Indian firm and the whole lot will start again.
Seems to me there is a lot of money to be made in finding the next buzzword after cloud and flogging it to these guys.
Re: Will it work?
thank you starbucks employee
"I've been using CentOS for a long time. Migrated to is from Mandrake. Currently V7 with Cinamon
Does what it says on the tin. No Canonical software in sight.
and I don't rant on systemd. Never had a problem with it."
And the accusation is Windows is boring compares with this how?
yeah i had the same thought straight away. surely this is a solved problem?
...coz writing a big cheque to one vendor and absolving yourself of all responsibility has always worked flawlessly. You never get ripped off, nuh-uh.
Remember: work outsourced is work not done. So just save the money and don't do it.
Security is hard
And understanding it even harder. This data was retrieved via the application, which of course would have the encryption keys, and would handily decrypt the data for you.
At least you can use Excel without IE5
*cough* SAP *cough*
Re: Tantrum coming in 3, 2, 1...
Really? The US fleet went down in Pearl Harbour if you remember. The RN fought most of the war at sea and the Indian Army fought most of the war on land. The US sold weapons to everyone and was probably very happy with the situation in general. Now, go lose 50 Kg so you can fit on a plane and get out there and educate yourself.
That's some good scamming! There's no such thing as SEO!
someone arrange for a wildfire or something please
Re: Dear Argos,
For reference, Wickes runs the software I built for their website.
Re: How about voting with your feet?
"if you're doing everything from inside the IDE, you're doing it wrong"
You seem to have missed the point of the I there. Now you just have a DE.
no, its the right tool for the right job. You don't use linux on the desktop unless you're a masochist and you don't use Windows embedded for anything at all.
