"including users' sexual fantasies"
Luckily it's not religious/political/management fantasies, or there would be trouble.

The "general firing" was apparently not confirmed.
involuntarily supporting some dictatorship
Better than voluntarily supporting some dictatorship, or enabling ISIS for "regime change", hmmmmm?
More likely the kernel is considered as tainted by the closed source module.
"opprc" = "oppress PRC"?
reinforcing each others hatred
Casting doubt on Windows 10 is now RACISM?
Yes, I am expecting Articles Of Major Disapproval on liberal websites soon. Then we will probably be grouped together with libertarians for wage slavery or something.
...firmly in the "consumer segment", then, this Operating System resides?
Interest not kindled, it is.
They make me lock and load my trusty blunderbuss.
Well, at least I now have heard about the MEAN stack: MongoDB, Express.js, AngularJS and Node.js. The mind boggles. What the fuck is that shit and how is it of any use to anybody?
Converting to the MEAN stack gives your development team a number of benefits, the three most significant being a single language from top to bottom, flexibility in deployment platform, and enhanced speed in data retrieval.
More like barely able coders falling over themselves, unable to get any meaningful work done while the applications blow up left and right.
Unless the crash comes, which won't be long.
Putin destabilising and trying to establish puppet governments
The worst thing is that this is not even the case.
Meanwhile, Kiev's chocolate king oligarch has nazi troopers and tourist islamists trying to cause serious trouble. Europe still has a few
yearsdecades of fun times ahead.
"Hmmm... this software has bugs"
Are they still in their silos, rotting? Are any missing and if so, where did they go?
Really, it's a mess...
Given all the frothing by hawkish U.S. Senators about Iran’s possible development of nuclear weapons, one might think that Iran was violating the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
But it’s not. The NPT, signed by 190 nations and in effect since 1970, is a treaty in which the non-nuclear nations agreed to forgo developing nuclear weapons and the nuclear nations agreed to divest themselves of their nuclear weapons. It also granted nations the right to develop peaceful nuclear power. The current negotiations in which Iran is engaged with other nations are merely designed to guarantee that Iran, which signed the NPT, does not cross the line from developing nuclear power to developing nuclear weapons.
Nine nations, however, have flouted the NPT by either developing nuclear weapons since the treaty went into effect or failing to honor the commitment to disarm. These nine scofflaws and their nuclear arsenals are Russia (7,500 nuclear warheads), the United States (7,100 nuclear warheads), France (300 nuclear warheads), China (250 nuclear warheads), Britain (215 nuclear warheads), Pakistan (100-120 nuclear warheads), India (90-110 nuclear warheads), Israel (80 nuclear warheads), and North Korea (10 nuclear warheads).
Nor are the nuclear powers likely to be in compliance with the NPT any time soon. The Indian and Pakistani governments are engaged in a rapid nuclear weapons buildup, while the British government is contemplating the development of a new, more advanced nuclear weapons system. Although, in recent decades, the US and Russian governments did reduce their nuclear arsenals substantially, that process has come to a halt in recent years, as relations have soured between the two nations. Indeed, both countries are currently engaged in a new, extremely dangerous nuclear arms race. The US government has committed itself to spending $1 trillion to “modernize” its nuclear facilities and build new nuclear weapons. For its part, the Russian government is investing heavily in the upgrading of its nuclear warheads and the development of new delivery systems, such as nuclear missiles and nuclear submarines.
More like an interpreter.
Warren Abstract Machine in hardware when?
Is it even economically feasible to reach 7nm?
Yeah, but calling it "Socialist Republic of California" is just too long.
while wearing their underpants outside their trousers
It's true. We have politicans wear their underpants on their heads. Much more funny!
Wasn't it "Mighty Atom" (maybe of the Marvel universe ... or was it DC... ?) who behaved like Elon Musk and could shrink himself to mini-size?
I remember that he paired up with Batman (he also had to explain basic vector arithmetic to Wayne, not the brightest kid in the block, but hey, it's a 1%-er) and at one moment had to enter Batman's brain via the ear to perform inner surgery after a coma attack.
An then Mighty Atom got split in "The Death of Superheroes", accidentally nuking the whole Kansas...
Safety rules typically forbid recursion: Risk of stack overflow, Recursion makes it impossible to do the V&V necessary for a system like the ETCS
Even V&V consists of badly processed knowledge, applied badly.
Why not a Confederate Flag to enrage liberals?
Toyota engine management ... 256.6K Non-Comment Lines C Source on page 18.
Even if this is something lawyerly-arguably close to MISRA C .... WHAT!
The inertia inherent in industry, bullshit whirling around in closed loops in execs' heads and the cruft pushed by "learning institutions" and impressed on young minds must be just insurmountable.
Stand still, laddie!!
Richard Stallman famously left his MIT user account open to world & dog because principles, causing rejects of society to misuse it.
In other news, Linux is used to manage Concentration Camps in $BAD_COUNTRY etc.
A number that is supposed to be secret?
That's a new one in deeper levels of retardation.
They could have called up "disclosure of trade secrets", but still...
If they had registered a trademark on that number, it would make sense, but then it would no longer be a secret.
You would have to abolish Microsoft, kill the employees from management downwards and eliminate marketing and 50% of the devs just be doubly sure, then replant a sane mindset over a decade or so.
So, quite a lot of effort really.
Not even on the horizon in this company here.
Hopefully there will be a way to give users Linux with a functional Outlook and Office on top a bit before any migration plans start the sunrise period.
"50% less crap!"
Massive fireballs are sponsored by the government of Iran.
I think you mean Israel.
No more numpties running spam bots because they decided to run Windows
No one is forcing you to use Windows
SAY THIS TO MY FACE IN THE REAL WORLD AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
Don't be harsh- someone has to defend Windows.
We have ways of dealing with these people.
Fuck all these people and the shit they are peddling.
"Customers who are embracing Current Branch for Business do need to consume that feature update within the allotted time period of approximately eight months or they will not be able to see and consume the next security update,"
So, we are now "consuming" security updates. Om Nom Nom Nom.
I hope CDC erroneously mails live anthrax to Redmond.
Why? Each process comes with its own baggage, if you have more of them running at once there is more baggage.
BULLSHIT LEVELS OF CRUD! That "baggage" is EXTREMELY MINIMAL. Synchronization, locks and context switching won't magically disappear. Threads give you tons of problems in return that you need to keep in the box. Today one has supercomputers on the desk and processes are "too much baggage"? Why dontcha go for fibers while you are it. Processes were ok in the 70s and 80s but now that all the cool kids absolutely need to shoot themselves in the foot (while tweeting while taking selfies while falling downstairs thinking about how cool Node.js is) by ill thought-out multiprocessing ideas that were borderline braindead (unless used for very specialized contexts), which used in wholly inappropriate contexts using wholly inappropriate abstractions in stateful programming environments. LIFE IN "IT" IS ETERNAL COMEDY!
One process per tab is exactly the type of bloat that makes other browsers so heavy on overhead, CPU and memory.
Err... hello? Care to explain WHY?
Modern machines and OS are MEANT to run multiple processes and processes share identical memory pages and communicate via shared memory. Single-process architectures are just arse-backwards UNLESS you are very sure of your capability to run threads and very sure about the security of your single process. Or you want to accept the security risk to do fast even processing (and even then, please write in Erlang). But Firefox is not Nginx.
If only politicians could fall as easily, we might just have ourselves a mob rule.
Not interested as long as AWS exists
BECAUSE THEY CAN!
Actually, it is clearly OUT of Greece and in Switzerland.
Greek pension schemes, however, STAY in Greece.
I have the utter conviction that this is true and "psychotronic office: dilbertisms live" is being filmed.
Is this some kind of Alicebot?
I'm running v28. The security issues for this version are totally inconsequential
I do hope you are running in a VM, dude.
Or do are your really sure that all of these in now way affect the codebase of 28.
Protip: The fact that no-one in a shitty forum takes you up on your offer to hack an exploit for your venerable codebase browser means nothing.
Security by obscurity is a much better system.
Is this like whitey playing it cool in the ghetto?
In 1964, American physicist Murray Gell-Mann made the wild suggestion
Yup, after having rubbished the idea thoroughly when his colleagues came to talk about this. He always insisted that it was just a "mathematical shortcut" for hadron structure, then ran with the idea when experimental data came in.
As to the name... from Frank Close's book on the Higgs:
By the 1960s, experiments with cosmic rays and at accelerators had revealed scores of hadrons. In 1962 Gell-Mann found a way of gathering the mushrooming hadrons into families, most famously containing sets of eight. He poetically named his scheme the "Eightfold Way" after the Buddhist path to truth. The mathematics behind this involved group theory, and the particular group known as SU(3).
In March 1963 Gell-Mann gave a talk at Columbia University about his new SU(3) theory. A couple of weeks earlier another theorist, Gian Carlo Wick, had given an introductory seminar about SU(3); upon hearing it, Robert Serber realised that in addition to families of eight and ten, which had already been discovered, there should be a basic family of three (as in SU “three”) and, moreover, the octets and tens could be built up as composed of groups of these more basic entities. As Serber later recalled: “The suggestion was immediate; the [hadrons] were not elementary but were made of [what we now call] quarks."
A fortnight later, Gell-Mann was in town. During lunch at the Faculty Club, Serber explained the idea to him. Gell-Mann asked what the electric charge of the basic trio is. Serber had not looked into this, so Gell-Mann figured it out on a table napkin. The answer turned out to be 2/3 or -1/3 fractions of a proton’s charge, which was an “appalling result”, as no such charges had ever been seen. Gell-Mann mentioned this in the colloquium, and said that such things would be a “strange quirk of nature”. Serber remarked later: “Quirk was jokingly transformed into quark.”
Finnegan's Wake? Not so much. But so history is made.
You wanna break this down by severity, Matt? Because, you know, "hey statistics".

We don't like people like you here.jpg
They could recode the Flash runtime in Java.
Then one would only have ONE sandbox to worry about. Plus Flash would be able to auto-install on need (and you would profit from a new search bar!!)
Unfortunately it would mean Oracle and Adobe would enter into the HYPERCLASH OF THE IP
Well the dwarf Putin surely thinks it still exists
I think you went for western "reality creation" hook, line and sinker.
Stop it, gramps!
We are now at the ARSE principle: Add Raunchy Sexyness, Eejit!
Come on, it's not revolutionary stuff.
Why, did you expect an unpublished pamphlet of Leon Trotsky in the stack?
Of course it's not "revolutionary". But so what. You are 1980's coder, you should diregard the inner child demanding "teh new" every single morning. The future is just like the past, only more so.
Only if you are into necrophilia and banking applications.
