For the AdExchange feed at least, Google doesn't not send your GPS coordinates directly. It instead sends a polygon, for example 2 square KM, and says that you're somewhere in there. It also truncates your IP address.

They're developing Executors and future releases of some STL algorithms will support an ExecutionPolicy, for example: http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/algorithm/find
Ireland is not so cheap any more. And another housing bubble is brewing
> For the EU, a barrier between the EU and the non EU is also obligatory
That would make the RoI/NI border an EU issue then, not a UK one. The EU really is playing RoI like fiddle here. RoI really has to choose between the EU and the Good Friday agreement.
Of course, the DUP are the biggest fools here. They're refusing to allow NI to potentially become very prosperous due to a fear of non-existent papists.
Re: Thorny issue to be sure, but . . .
> try to think of the claim this way: those managers who evaluated staff tended to favour their pals when performing evaluations. Now, consider that as the managers themselves were male, those friends were more likely to be male than female.
Why try thinking about it in any other way than what the women claimed happeend?
What the UK gets in any deal will really be decided by how much hurt French and Spanish fishermen receive.
If someone actually opts-in to all this, and their adblocker blocks the ads anyway, can the adblocker be sued by the publisher?

Not without consent, you won't

Everything Google can grab is listed here:
Not all of it is present usually.

Games publishers readily block ads from competitors, for obvious reasons.
VM still use intel puma chips in their superhub 3 routers. Constant connection drops, but when it works the speed is near advertised.
El Reg shouldn't even report on this SJW horseshit anymore
if dev == woman then dont_be(asshole): Stack Overflow tries again to be more friendly to non-male non-pasty coders
Nope, neither gender nor skin colour
Is this on StackOverflow or across the whole of StackExchange? Because as a person pointed out already, hardly anyone looks at the profile of people asking questions on StackOverflow. Maybe the 'victimised' groups really just can't take harsh feedback. They're in for a shock when they have to face a real code review.
This is a joke, right?
The yanks may just crack the codes again:

Re: Do you ...
How on earth do you conclude that anyone here thinks any of those things?
Re: Reason for firing
> A positive statement that supports your employer, or is non-controversial is not going to damage your career.
What absolute horseshit! Who gets to decide what is 'non-controversial'?
Re: Reason for firing
> Well, since my comment doesn't stigmatise or offend any particular group ( except maybe the incautious) you would (did) just prove yourself rather stupid to have a go at me on that basis.
Re-read your comment. You suggest that anyone who publishes anything should prepare to have their career ended. You published that comment
Re: What's a bro-grammer?
> It's a male programmer who still acts like a frat boy.
Ok, great. He was out of his depth. I still don't see why the SJW rabble went on an all-out assault to destroy him. That Google campus sounds like a terrifying place to work, I'd be afraid to talk to anyone about anything not work related. I can picture myself being crucified for trying to 'bum a fag' (ask for a cigarette)
What's a bro-grammer?
I assume it's a white male programmer, but knowing google and the SJW folk, it could also be a programmer who has a My Little Pony fetish.
Re: Reason for firing
> IMHO anyone who publicly publishes anything deserves the consequences. And anyone stupid enough to publish something , for no good reason, that will adversely affect their own career deserves all they get.
i.e. What he thinks probably matters little. What he publishes matters more. That he published matters most.
What the actual fuck? should I hound you for publishing such a stupid comment? Would you 'deserve all you get'?
Re: Lack of slurp potential?
Symbian's user-land apps were pretty restricted. Networks, however could pretty much give their own apps all the permissions in the world. So, they would have had to develop their own data-slurping advertising SDKs.
The excessive cheering was a bit much
Hmm, since AWS updated their machines we're seeing unexplained lzop crashes on the Ubuntu AMIs
I've not noticed any slower c++ compile times ona Linux guest VM (Windows 10 Host) either on a a 4790K
I've often gone to the pub with Muslims, they either drink soft drinks or non-alcoholic Becks.
Re: "...therefore Socrates is a dog"
That's great, the guy was wrong. He didn't deserve the ensuing witch-hunt and loss of career.
Intel: the new Nokia
I've hated Intel every since my Virgin Media modem came with a Puma chipset.
Re: Kernel bypass?
You'll need to install the patches anyway just to be safe; but yes, kernel bypass would mitigate the effects of calling the kernel being made more expensive. I'm not sure how much effect kernel bypass would have on virtual machines like AWS though. Maybe someone here could comment, I'm interesting in faffing about with it.
Re: Can you hear it?
> Well, that just about wraps it up for blockchain mining!
Blockchain mining is CPU-intensive, not syscall intensive (if it is then you're doing it wrong)
Re: Unusual stock trades
This is most likely due to changes in US tax law. Goldman Sachs also distributed bonuses early for the same reason.
Re: I finally switch from AMD to Intel, and this is what happens.
The chips will still work as advertised, it's the kernel that is being made slower.
How did an external person manage to ssh into the machines in order to get them to do anything not pre-build into the AMIs?

Pricing adverts already happens. That's how they end up on your browser.

Re: Depends on your situation

Why not just use C++? No f******g around.
The Content Creators Update borked the FPS on the one game I play. I'm looking forward to having to rollback this update too
So how exactly does one sort an array without a) mutating state, or b) running out of RAM?
There is, Google is saying that the apes manning agency trading desks aren't using them.
I don't get the hype surrounding node.js. It's just a wrapper around libuv.
