Yes - spaghetti code is a problem wherever you get it from :-)
The correct way to deal with this would be to style your HTML so that stuff gets left or right-aligned.
That won't help if you want to pad with zeroes though
As mentioned in the article, I don't see how this reclassification simplifies anything over the old classification...
The Intel Ark site - since its redesign - also goes out of its way to make it difficult to compare processor features/specifications due to its perverse layout, I actually found myself using the Wikipedia Xeon page to look up current Xeon specs the other day rather than Intel's site
Let's see how August turns out - I am over in Fornebu again for 2 weeks (once they take the "Sorry, we are closed for the summer" sign down again ;-))
If the weather is still crap then I will accept full blame!
I have been working in Oslo/Fornebu recently and I can attest that I have never seen so many Tesla's (Model S and Model X) in one place!
As well as the potential repair costs of the specialised electronics and particularly the battery packs, this is also in a fairly high performance vehicle category with a sub 6-second 0-60 time.
This is likely to affect insurance premiums adversely also.
It is an exciting development though, and it will be very interesting to see where EVs are in 3 or 4 years time.
Understood - thanks
Don't shoot me down, but could this account for any of the missing matter discrepancy - i.e. we have assumed molecular H2 floating around but it is actually H3 so is ~50% more mass per Hydrogen molecule?
Or am I talking cr@p?
I am awaiting the announcement of dilithium - in crystalline form - any day now!
But Noah's Ark would have quickly run aground in that gene pool.
Some of my best friends are Christians....;-)
..actually before that Noah's goes back to Adam & Eve, who had 2 sons....
What happened next...?
Still is here......
The fact that projects fail with or without PRINCE2 or other methodologies (as evidenced by Axelos' own numbers) shows that methodologies don't/cannot address all of the human/subject matter/corporate/political factors in projects.
A thought though. Why is there a PRINCE 2...what was wrong with PRINCE1...
..then you can reach out, touch base and put it outside the back door and see if the cat eats it.
...you're telling the secrets they kept..
(With apologies to Miles Hunt)
An auditor's role is NOT to specifically spot fraud but they might find it in the course of their work.
Their role is to give an opinion on whether the financial statements give a "true and fair" view (I.e. Not materially mis-stated) and comply with the relevant reporting standards (e.g. IFRS).
If fraud is perpetrated by senior management in collusion then they are unlikely to find it in the course of their audit work, and their opinion may therefore be proved incorrect subsequently.
That does not mean that an auditor cannot give an incorrect opinion through incompetence, but they can be taken in by fraud too.
Oh no it wouldn't...
You are looking at the historical numbers already posted.
It may also be that their post-DXC split forecasts for next year are down by such a degree that they need to pre-empt and cut expenses now.
Whether they are cutting the right expenses which will not themselves precipitate revenue collapse is another argument entirely (as per IBM and DXC).
Pissing off revenue-earning staff AND customers at the same time cannot end well.....
(For avoidance of doubt I am not arguing that pissing off non-revenue earning staff is a good idea either)
Probably the other way around - a bang that large would induce sudden brown-outs in a lot of people
Not sure what you are on about but you can go via Singapore with Air NZ (code share)
After flying once to NZ via the hell-hole that is LA transit, I have flown via Singapore to NZ since then.
Too late - nuke your mouth from orbit - it's the only way
Already is - see Private Eye magazine passim!
collectively turning in their graves
Spinning in their graves I think. Combine that with some copper wire coils and maybe IBM have finally innovated again, and come up with a sustainable energy source...
It also has to parse/contextualise/re-order "..the dog in the park I took last week to Instagram.""
to understand whether you took the dog or the park to Instagram OR if you actually meant the photo
As we take the security of our systems extremely seriously, we are retiring the Windows 2003 platform with immediate effect,
Their statement - nearly 2 years after W2K3 was de-supported - shows exactly how seriously they actually take security.....
I wonder if they typed that with a straight face
No I haven't (I am of the old-ish fart vintage!)
I still think that spin it its current guise can be traced back to 1997 - and possibly coincident with the emergence and wider adoption of electronic communications and a feedback loop to the media that is much quicker than was possible in print-centric days (or before 24-hour TV news).
Agree with everything except why spin has become the centrepiece of this Government’s communications strategy
Spin has been at the centre of ALL UK Governments' communications strategy since Blair's tenure (and Campbell's media management) in 1997
Meh - looks like a pair of 70s purple loon pants that have fallen on their side...
It's not the same as spam as it's most likely not email that is targeted here.
This will be for targeting on Ad platforms and LinkedIn itself to (try to) show you ads wherever you go on the web where they think they can correlate your presence with the information they have on you...
As is mentioned below, I can't see how LinkedIn information can possibly improve data quality given the fiction and wanky-words used in most profiles in the LinkedIn echo chamber.
(Maybe LinkedIn is like an anti-laser cavity? The buzzwords reflect and resonate off the ends of this chamber until a pure stream of incoherent information of the same wavelength emerges and obliterates all in its path).
Great place for a ToR exit node....
I wonder what the suitable CPUs?RAM/SSDs are for this?
Space-hardened CPUs/RAM/SSDs are usually a few generations behind ground-based ones because of the costs of hardening them ands because they don't necessarily have to do generalised computing tasks.
I am not sure that multi-core Xeons beasts that you would run a virtualisation task down here would survive up in orbit given the intricate circuit sizes.
I suppose they must have considered this, and maybe that's why they are proposing a fleet of these to allow for redundancy as nodes in the cluster fail.
The NOMX site suggests that he has been unable to demonstrate his claim on their server?
Apparently NOMX is no longer Raspberry Pi-based also.
"Reached Out" - nooooooooooooo please, stop it.
Yes, and completely spidulary with existing linguistic gramostications:
Embolden - to boldify more
Embiggen - to biggify more
Emtwentyfive - to drive round in circles more
That is a hell of a difference between the KKR bid and the Foxconn bids!
I imagine that their motives/intentions are very different (VC vs. manufacturer/fabricator)....
Exactly - the David Attenborough will only be completed in 2019 according to various news sites..
Maybe it helps if you put Jam in too?
Following my curiosity, I went to their site and watched the videos, (having just received my Blade Inductrix FPV drone to play with and annoy the cat).
Who are they aimed at? They are a bit like an MTV video for someone with attention-deficit on caffeine and other stimulants.
Just as you get to see what the drone is doing there is a jump-cut to another angle of another one going in another direction. It's like a pop video on fast-forward.
The tech is undeniably cool and technically challenging, but they should spend some of that $10m on getting someone to record and edit their promotional material.
"switched to Concur, an expensive management and travel booking system."
Freudian or deliberate typo....?
So does that mean that if you don't use OneDrive then you won't see them?
separate, independent partnership and has even regrown its consultancy arm in some directions
So that's what all the fuss on Cloud sails is about?
Ah yes - like sex in a canoe - f@cking close to water.....
Stayin' Alive...Disco Inferno...Yeah baby!
Small mirrors? A disco ball would add some 70's style into modern warfare countermeasures.
Being closer towards the "old fart" end of the Reg readership than some, I thought I should share a link to a 1977 book ("Worlds within Worlds - A Journey into the unknown") that I recall fondly from my childhood.
This includes several shots similar to the second video - including one of the bomb tower just after the fireball has started at detonation. The tower is still there, and it has not yet been vapourised - incredible.
There are lots of other high-speed or specialised (e.g. Kirlian) images in there too.
Still unavailable, 2 years later....
They renewed their MVNO deal with EE for 5 years at the start of 2017, but I wonder if the BT/EE deal has got them wanting to move away from a direct competitor (for Virgin Mobile AND fixed-line phone/cable/content) by having their own mobile operation/deal.
