I've been with Smile for years, just transferred my S&S ISA allowance out upon hearing the news this morning. Also shopping around, the website is awful, but I've never had issues with the customer service. It did take over a week for a replacement debit card to arrive, but that's about it

that's still a thing is it? did he died?
The first SCM I learned to use was Perforce. True, there's a steep learning curve but once I got used to it I quite liked it. This was about 5 years ago. Now we use git, and there's also a steep learning curve with that. Sure the mundane checkout, merge, push, pull are straightforward enough, but once you have to do anything out of the ordinary it becomes a similar ^^mindfuck
If your DSP cannot do the targeting and data reporting for you then it's time for a new one.
Charge for cancelled orders based on the size of the order.
Throttle feeds when this happens or put them lower in the buying queue.
Only allow cancellations after a timeout has elapsed. If any of it gets filled then too bad.
Re: Java and low latency do not mix
The disruptor pre-allocates much of what it needs. Still though, youre' right, there's really no reason for them to have written it in Java apart from the readily available concurrency libs which are sadly lacking in C++
Yes but the UK will not be kicked out of github
Humans are animals
The thought of being stuck next with a nose-picking degenerate developer with bad breath and BO appalls me TBPHWY.
People have different ways of approaching a problem, some will sit and think it out, others will start to write it out and change it as they go along. Some build often, others will build once they think. I can only picture myself ending a pair programming exercise in a fight.
Visual Studio sucks
Actually, VS is one of the best IDEs out there, the best Linux can offer is QTCreator which is now non-free for commercial use.
Ireland's stance is really simple
It could not create jobs at the time. No government can create jobs without a private sector to pay for it. So they took the view that having jobs was better than having no jobs, and the jobs created around other companies doing business with Apple, etc, even if the multinationals took the piss.
There's no point in having a 20 - 30% corporation tax rate if there are no companies there to pay that; something the EU doesn't seem to get.
Why do charities need access to medical data?
Re: Tea with milk just tastes greasy
I make this sort of tea quite often. You need:
Strong tea leaves (i normally use assam)
A really fine mesh strainer. You can vary the amounts of each ingredient according to your own taste. Boil them in not too much water and add the milk at the end. Don't drink after 10pm
What's the point of reviewing apache? Surely they'll have to review all the custom modules it loads too?
Re: PS/2 Mice
Pretty much all motherboards for gamers/overclockers will still come with a PS/2 port.
Re: How are async callbacks primitive???
Async callbacks are used even for multi-threaded code, unless you use the anti-pattern of using one thread per request (whatever a request is in yuor domain), which will kill any chance of implementing a scalable architecture.
Re: The deep mysteries of VBA bugs
How are async callbacks primitive???
That must have been a complete nightmare to debug
"Docker is NOT good at isolating Linux Containers from each other (shared kernel)"
That's a deal breaker right there

You can get around the hatred of goto with the following;
Re: I hope you drone pilots have decent insurance
Are you tripping balls pal?
Won't const auto& give you a reference to the members of the array instead of their actual values? Why would you want the extra memory dereference?
Re: Misses the point of serialisation...
What are you banging on about? Are you saying that traditional file format do not require validation? You're totally wrong if you are.
Re: It's not about the customer
It's not going to be the advertisers, it'll be the ad networks.
What does that sound like? One continuous sonic boom?
Re: Windows 10
I have a button on my motherboard that resets the BIOS. The machine would fail to boot, telling to insert bootable media.
I gave it a shot, i don't like the UI and it would occasionally crash and somehow corrupt my BIOS.
Uninstalling it and going back to 8.1 was surprisingly easy but they just rename the Windows 10 "windows" folder to something explorer won't list. And Windows Update still nags me to install it
Time to bring back Symbian
I've a CPU and MB that allows all sorts of overclocking but TBPHWY I'm terrified to change anything
I'm not really sure what all this all is, but I'm pretty sure it'll end up with my CPU at 100%
Anthony Zuppero has an interesting, but rambling, document of other nuclear (and space) related things:
Re: If you need a "new" PC
Whenever Linux has gone haywire for me it after I do something complicated like change the screen resolution. Hence, VMs from now on
Linux on a laptop? *Shudder*
I won't run Ubuntu on bare metal anymore, only VMs
Because crypto is hard, and any research that uncovers flaws in a protocol or cipher is likely to be pounced upon by the government and the researcher silenced. Or they'll sell it to the highest bidder
Are there any numbers re the volume of trades done from within ISAs?
Couldn't agree more... the best C++ programmers are those who know what parts to leave out.
Templates are quite cool, but they're a fucking disaster in the hands of fools. It's inexcusable that a missing 'const' can lead to pages and pages of compiler errors (I'm looking at you boost)
string_view? is that what's now string_ref?
I run Windows 8.1 and then Ubuntu in a VM. Best of both worlds. Windows 8.1 isn't that bad really once you get to pin the Control Panel to the taskbar.
Did he explain why AWS continually drops established TCP connections to other AWS machines?
Twitter recently acquired MoPub, which is a mobile advertising exchange. This probably has more to do with that than writing an app for reading tweets.
I once tried to chart 65k timeseries values. I think I started back in October. It's still at it
Re: I'm free!
You can install windows on a new motherboard.
There's a program somewhere (spui maybe) that displays a set of numbers and a freefone number to call. You enter the numbers and it gives you back some more. Enter those in that program earlier and windows is activated again. It's all free, no human interaction, and takes about 5 mins.
Re: Can anyone recall me
It actually allows loads of concurrent connections because it uses the libuv library, which is asynchronous.
Apache is pretty much outdated. The conf settings are bizarre, the multi-process model might have been relevent in 1995 and you end up having to faff with shared memory. One thread per request... please.
Try find sample code that reads a request body... WTF is a brigade...
The documentation is woeful
Re: Weren't the encryption docs kept secret and only available to "qualified" GSM implementors?
I seem to recall hearing about them increasing the key length only to have French Govt insist on the new bits being zeroes.
Re: Its the kernel
Re: Unknown source of kernel lock-ups?
It would depend on the severity of the bug really. One that causes a CPU lock-up would, in my mind at least, be a showstopper.
Unknown source of kernel lock-ups?
And it's being released anyway!? Sounds like something Adobe would do
If they don't already, YouTube will only increment the view count on completed plays. Numberphile/SixySymbols did a video on it. There's also an 'off-by-one' bug where the view count is listed as 301 for a while instead of 300 until YT do their number crunching to determine the real view count
Re: A money burning exercise
Frustratingly, the Linux ecosystem has nothing that comes near to Visual Studio
There have been DNS issues with running on AWS for ages now even when all connections are internal to AWS
