Good. FTP doesn't require that either the file source or destination be the control client.
Control client C can coordinate a transfer from server A to server B

It's clearly a programmer error - it's not valid to call that function without valid credentials!
At least that's the sort of response I get when I report bugs.
I reported today how bash's printf %q format can leave a dangling unused backslash which voids the whole safety benefit of %q
Apparently it's a programmer error to expect to use %q as advertised.
It's not safe to use a truncating size specifier with %q e.g. %.8q
It could be made safe, but why bother for "a programmer error"?
I don't think these sorts of bugs are deliberate but I know others do.
I wrote a device drivers in turbo pascal to work with a windows Delphi app.
Its job was to pre-register client handles with windows csmapper so that apps could regisster with card services (pcmcia) *after* windows had started (csmapper was intednded only for clients that loaded before windows started).
There was quite a bit of dpmi stuff going on to ensure that callbacks occured in the correct virtual machine (if there were dosbox clients running under windows).
Turbo pascal didn't lack anything C could do.
I was taught that a "professional" is one in whom gross misconduct or dishonesty could of itself bar them from effective participation in their profession.
That is, their integrity is gone, not merely that a registration board has de-listed them.
Who would hire a software engineer found guilty of inserting back doors without their employers knowledge? Or who would lie on a passport form? If you can't trust their word, you can't trust their work.
Hence, a professional being trusted to sign a passport form because of what they have to lose if they lie.
Try getting a single user licence and you will find that you can't.
The minimum quantities for 500 users when I last checked.
I think the business plan when is to go for small businesses who won't need a 500 user licence but will have some employees that will run the add-on anyway.
Combine that with the fact that the licence conditions may vary over time, I believe a legitimate use can become an illegitimate use and subject to the licence.
Too many people feel the need to come to a premature conclusion, and get very choppy with Occam's razor to help them do it.
They consider that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and then chop away, not thinking of the extraordinary value that they might be chopping away for want of a little patience.
speed means data rate in this conversation.
The DSL data rate need not be related to the peering data rate, and on a badly managed ISP may be much less
In a similar way, a 5 lane driveway between the front door and road won't reduce your journey time to the Sainsbury's even though the 5 line driveway is in your control.
> And only putting three registers on the 6502 was just dumbfuckery of the highest order.
> Shame on Peddle!
Once we decide something is not worth knowing about, we lose the opportunity to find out we are wrong.
I used to have that view, but years later found out that 6502 page zero access was treated specially and very fast, effectively giving another 256 registers.
"tells the time" <-- wooden bobbins, I tells ya!
My list is:
* time-travels you to whatever time you want it to be -- never be late again!
* charges "Instantly" by time-travelling after charging back to the point at which it need charging
* split-time heirloom mode where on the death of the first heir it time-travels back to be inherited by the second heir (using the diagonal slash rule to cope with any number of heirs and sub-heirs).
* time travel shopping - buy a holographic anti-gravity translator combination from etsy-bay in future end-of-line close-out sales at bargain prices
Mine fails to even notice some devices on the network. They can use the network but don't show up in any admin screens as being on the network.
Also, although it claims to have timed blocking rules, but there is no default blocking rule, so any blocked person simply changes their mac address to avoid blocks.
The Boris figure is right to within -50% +100%.
The actual amount is only an issue to those who don't care about the principle at stake.
The EU cost could reasonable be as high as £660M per week: http://www.brugesgroup.com/blog/costs-and-liabilities-associated-with-the-european-union.
But even if there were some idiots who somehow thought the referendum was on an NHS budget increase of precisely £350M per week, there were plenty of others who actually read the question on the ballot paper before voting.
Even if the figure were not in dispute, as it was not on the ballot it would be part of the budget, debated in parliament (Gina Miller and the remainers would like that) and in fact could still be granted even now!
On the other hand, Ted Heaths lies were lies in principle, not of quantity, but none of those remainers who get so very excited about "lies" care about that, it was before their time!
Over 15 years ago, a colleague and I worked on the plugin Orange custom home-screen for the SPV1 and early MS Smartphones.
One the modaco forums there was a lot of custom homescreen layouts making use of all the cool features, the main one of which was embedding other plugins into smaller areas.
As I can best recall, one prominent designer seemed to enjoy pontificating the extent and limits of customisation and was in our view quite harsh on another designer whose work was good.
As a consequence my colleague suggested that we provide information on some extra customisation features to the oppressed designer directly so that he could do better designs which were also "impossible" according to the wisdom of the self declared expert. As his work was dissected those features would become widely known, but he was our nominated prophet, so to speak.
I don't know how the expert reconciled this "lowly" designer finding such cool features, but us two and our prophet had a private joke playing out.
I believe that most of the parties are represented here:
