Why fuss about accidentally - it's the new ransomware.
Don't reboot or everything is gone...
"CEO Sundar Pichai said that YouTube viewership among the 19-45 age group now has more viewers than any US cable channel. YouTube viewing in the living room more than doubled in the last year, he said, pushing up revenues."
Would that be because you count people or devices, not households?
How many of that age group are giving you money?
Surely a RasPi could be put together to emulate the outputs and respond to the inputs?
Could even operate a nice displayboard of the "heavy metal power building"
Given that the thing is easily repairable, generally with a hammer and some string, I'd be surprised if it wasn't actually rather more ecologically sound than some of the "ship everything around the world forty times, then throw it out when a bulb fails" models on the market...
Ah, but they emit less/mile - yes, but they'll only do 20k in their lifetime....
I managed to run the above, as root, on a solaris development server...
To be fair I did tell my boss that I shouldn't be doing that dev work on a development server, but on a test machine - but they'd run out of test machines...
The work? chroot jail manipulation...
The intended command: rm -rf etc bin usr
Which would have cleared up the chroot jail I didn't need any more...
A rather hasty test of the backups - or a reinstall, I genuinely can't remember any more (15+ years ago)
What I do remember was hitting return, then thinking "That's taking a bit longer than normal.... Oh Shit! Ctrl-C, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-C.. Aaaarrrgggghhhh. Fuck, Bother"
More importantly driving a motor vehicle requires a license.
Does he have an internet license? If not then he shouldn't be browsing, and we should probably not let his comments pass...
Why not have the drone drop the package into the BACK garden - the one that is normally much more secure (at least in the UK)
Lay out a small pad for final visual approach, go to work - return to find package (which is rain proof) on the pad outside back door.
If you are spinning up a set of instance for a specific task, then does the occasional instance failure matter?
I mean I'm with him on the debugging thing - it would be nice to know that bad data was the cause of the crash - but in the case of spinning up instances is there not an argument that:
a) efficiency of spinup is more important than normal
b) reliability is less so
Da Weezil - Ive never understood these business wonks that expect continual growth. Out of a total market there is finite number of the population that will want a product (obvious exclusions apply for water/power etc) for whatever reason
No exclusion needed - water/power/air are still only needed by a finite number of the population - it's just a proportion that approaches 100%.
And surprisingly when they have siad things, they won't pay for new pipes until the old ones fail in some way...
"I dont know the exact loss rate of lines running from Indiana to Virginia, but I would bet if thats where the power was really going you would be losing over 50%...the real answer is its fed into the grid, and they are offset for what the farm they own generates."
Grids run at high voltage precicely to reduce the long distance transmission losses - US losses are about 6.5% (very small change 1997-2007, so I assume it's still about that
But that's the normalised *demand* - not the normalised capacity.
I am working on the assumption that windmills just throw everything they can at the grid...
The 150 megawatt facility on Fowler Ridge in Benton County, Indiana starting pumping out electrons on the first of January when it made over “1.1 million kilowatt-hours of renewable electricity.”
3.6 million kWh
So it's running at <30% nominal load, which seems about typical.
Why don't they just call it a 50MW facility?
EIT: Actually seems to be quite high!
The normalised load factor for UK onshore wind farms declines from a peak of about 24% at
age 1 to 15% at age 10 and 11% at age 15. The decline in the normalised load factor for Danish
onshore wind farms is slower but still significant with a fall from a peak of 22% to 18% at age 15.
On the other hand for offshore wind farms in Denmark the normalised load factor falls from
39% at age 0 to 15% at age 10.
Of course not having to deal with the humidty and sea air of northernm europe probably helps.
Maybe it should be called a 20%150MW farm?
My kids are fine - they were on reins for a large part of toddlerdom. But there is always that interval between getting them out of the car seat and putting the reins on - particularly when you're doing child 2, child 1 being held in the other hand...
I also have no issue shouting when required, and it still works ;)
But I also am aware of the ridiculous speeds some people seem to think are necessary in a car park, and with mostly obscured sight lines to everywhere a secure route from those places to the store isn't a hard thing to provide.
@AC - I really can't see the need for parent and child spaces at all and certainly not nearer than the disabled spaces which are often used by people who can only walk very short distances.
Well, when you have kids that you have to put into a car seat and can't open the door more than a fraction then you might appreciate them. As for reins, yes - my kids were on reins for a good while, and still get shouted at occasionally - but that doesn't stop me wanting to put another layer of safety in place. It's not hard to have P&C spaces accessible without battling idiots in cars..
As for distance - it happens that at my local supermarket the disabled bays are now 5m further away - I don't actually care about the distance, I care about the route. I'd be happy with remote P&C bays with a secure route (as I have seen at a number of stores).
I am happy for you that your children were all beautifully behaved and you had enough hands to hold all five of them whilst simultaneously carrying a weeks worth of shopping... but that's not reality for most people.
Personally I'm now right at the edge of needing those bays - the kids can climb in, but they can't yet do up their belts, so I do need to open the door far enough to lean across them and clunk-click...
Not long before they can do that though - they can certainly undo them themselves (yes they always ask first)
More importantly the P&C bays are often not adjacent to the store - there is usually at least one "road" to cross (I put road in quotes because there seem to be a significant minority who think it's a racetrack)
Most disabled people I know are perfectly capable of crossing a road safely - albeit slowly.
Most toddlers are not - and they can do so at high speed.
To be fair to the supermarket I use now - they are much better and have reversed the usual arrangement, so the P&C bays are against the building, and the disabled bays are a full 5 metres further away - I know that 5m can be significant, b ut given the variation in distance between the closest and furthest bays is an order of magnitude larger....
TITSUP mode on the rockets is all well and good - but at just a few m above the surface there isn't actually enough time to deploy a chute.
The chute is there in case you use the landing engines to escape a failing rocket at launch
Parachutes are good.
But there is a chance that rockets might be better.
Certainly better control available with rockets...
" I was only asked to go back to my seat as we were on finals at Gatwick, some three hours later."
When I was a lad I visited the cockpit (with my brother) on a short hop from Nice to LHR.
Whilst we were in there the pilots had a call over the radio - and said "You - pull that seat out, you, sit there. Both of you strap in".
They put the seatbelt lights on and called for a stewardess (as they were) and sent a message back to our parents that they had been given an short landing window and we'd be stuck there until we'd landed.
That was fun!
"So you believe that terrorism is just another form of crime? Sorry but that's incorrect. Terrorism is an act that attempts to instill terror in a population "
So you are giving them the victory?
Ignore them, they are an insignificant threat compared with those we have decided are "normal" and acceptable.
"Spare us your 'statistics', okay? There isn't an acceptable terrorism loss rate no matter what you personally believe."
Yet there is an acceptable automobile related death rate?
And an acceptable gunshot death rate?
Terrorists are so low down on the actual threat list for human lives/health that they really shouldn't be significantly considered.
Of course if the fibre gets cut and someone is streaming online from a remote control aircraft... then all hell will break loose - no ad breaks, how are the players going to get their rests?
A cross on a bit of paper is too hard?
For the cost of this system I'll even help the employment figures, we can employ someone to count those bits of paper...
And of course you wouldn't open fire with the SAM until you wanted to launch the ICBM...
To bring the helium back again - but then you'd probably have to lose a passenger (or the pilot)
You know what - they might have done the sums on this one...
And they might have a pretty good handle on the data that they are shifting - they've been doing it long enough.
I'll wait and see, but of all the "move it to the cloud to save money" stories we see - this is the one of the few cases I can see being well researched.
It's VoIP - That rather implies an IP connection, so why not use an out of band crypto key exchange?
@Goit - "Another anonymoron"
Yes, I'm clearly anonymous... That's why I have the AC icon and the name Anonymous Coward...
An Atheist is claiming that there is no such thing as a God - not that they doubt it.
"You are asking to prove a negative. It simply doesn't need to be done. FAIL"
Why would that not need to be done.
I can't just declare that I don't believe my tax bill, or overdraft statement.
If I really think they aren't valid then I need to demonstrate that.
Atheism is a faith position.
Apathy is not - although many people won't want to admit that they are apathetic rather than atheist...
There used to be different weight limits for power sources.
Best of the earlier series from my memory:
Casius (the original flipper IIRC)
Razor (ridiculously damaging claw)
Hypnodisc (Deciding that power wasn't everthing if you can build some energy in a weapon)
Before HD came out I had started to settle on a chinook style hypnodisc-esque weapons system because building energy in a flywheel was always the most obvious way to inflict damage.
"What IoT systems do you know have passwords longer than 8 characters? ;-)"
None - but my point was more directed at the more data centres than the password...
Doesn't that really mean more data centres for all the centrally accessible personal data hidden behind the password: "Password123"
Although also cooling them down from their own extertions - they can't lose any heat by convection or conduction, and they are exerting themselves quite significantly!
is a decent grace period for all the non-professional users of the API...
It make life much easier, and really costs very little (assuming that the API is monitored for abuse)...
So you end up with much happier tech savvy users, who then encourage other people to use your advert generator^W^W search engine
You say "of course"
I'm not sure that's always something you can reasonably assume.
It is in many areas, but not everywhere...
Why is it ever transmitted - surely the appropriate way to do auth forwarding (which is useful) is for the server to pass the auth requests back to the client (which may pass them back to the next client etc.) until it's at the machine with the private key
The issue with that analogy - and the analogy is being discussed - is that drivers aren't nearly as well trained, or continuously assesssed, as pilots, and there is always a safe position available: stopped! That isn't possible with aircraft.
The issue on the roads is that there are a large number of people who massively overestimate their own skills, and the damage they cause is frequently to those outside their vehicle....
Just talk to you rank and recall the monies.
The DD guarantee is good at times...
The two services (residential and commercial) would have been sold with different traffic management policies - so that's fine.
What I find slightly odd is that they can't now traffic manage - for instance - P2P download traffic to be of a lower priority than VoIP traffic.
That's basic QoS management, and appears to be banned under these rules.
I am absolutely with them that no one VoIP provider should be preferred over any other, nor should one streaming audio provider be favoured over any other, nor should any streaming video provider be favoured over any other, no HTTP(s) source.... no BT source...
But the idea of prioritising VoIP and streaming over HTTP(s) over BT is a sane method of traffic management IMHO.
Why would he get it - he's a politician...
Certainly - here is the hardware...
What do you mean you can't access it - it's in your hands?
No I can't unlock it for you...
No, that's software, not hardware....
I'm not convinced this is an attack on free speech - you're free to post said pictures (if you still think it is in good taste) after an hour - but you allow an amount of time for the families to be notified in the proper manner.
It's an hour, not a week, and certainly not "never".
I'd go with the victim exclusion, but I can't see why the "professional" media should be any different, nor first responders (although they might want to email it to the paramedics, but I would guess that facebook isn't the way they do that) - stuff still hurtles around (anti-)social media pretty fast - wherever it was taken from.
A location and a stock photo would be adequate for the news media for the first hour...
Of course legislating for sense is never going to work...
Cross feeding is also called Asparagus staging in KSP - and is a remarkably good way of getting stuff off the ground.
"But if you're going to be sitting on top of it... do you trust it?
I for one would love to know..."
As opposed to:
"sitting on top of two million parts -- all built by the lowest bidder on a government contract."
I don't know - but I'm probably not cut out to sit atop an experimental firework...
(Yes, this is a repeated response, to a repeated question in a different thread)
Are you saying that Discwolrd doesn't have a mythological basis?
It might be modern, but it's still myth:
Myth - from the Greek word mythos (μύθος), which simply means "story".
These are really good fun, but you need plenty of space...
So if they are looking for a month's protection - why not say that, and release the keys after some amount of time - a year maybe?
Well, the Lenovo version...
Got two in the loft at home, and a docking station...
It came from the "remote control via pocket computer"
There isn't any indication that any of the comms are encrypted and there is a tendency in devices nowadays to be WiFi only - often not a recent version, forcing all devices to drop to a lower standard...
That this has ethernet is one good point IMHO - of course the rest of the security is still needed
That server - it ought to be Sftp ;)
Hmm - at what kind of data rates - I could do with this an an option, cheaper than a 3G contract to send a continuous 128kBit stream, and with a 1km range I could find an appropriate friendly fixed line to use...
