Backblaze, go there. Still not perfect, but decent.
Thet would tell you at best that the ip is from china, yet tells you nothing about the people behind them... same for note being automatically translated from chinese.
They are not clueles, and these laws are obviously not for terrorists, but to control and manipulate the general population..and it works. The poor vote the tories...
I use it everyday on my iMac
500-1000e cost to install, plus the inconvinience to your customers.. therefore, to be avoided...
AWS cheap and fast? It is quite expensive, compared to running your own kit, and not fast at all.
It makes sense if you want to run your stuff in other peoples systems, as you can then focus on your core, but cheap and fast it is not.
They have way worse spyware.
You have to basically put a new OS if you can.
Except the "export" units do not have that huge amount.. just as Samsung et al
So they dont consider them their clients.. therefore I wont be one anymore.
They could have made a room available just by the airport, with no cables to be cut..
But hey, that is expensive. Also that is reasonable.
Also..HD screens. Really? A wall of frameless 8k screens would allow the controllers to use binoculars.THAT would make sense...but hey 40 8k panels consumes a huge amount of bandwidth.... I wo der if their solution is H264 compressed video..that adds latency..a lot. Forvet about the fiber latency of maybe 2ms..the problem.here is compression and display. They are landing planes..problaby with a 100ms lag...that is unacceptable.
I can hear the difference from CD audio to DVD Audio, but the correct headphones and amplifier is needed.
err, you can do decent text to speech with a puny dsp...
yes, it happens every few years, until they are found to have a cartel going on, then they plead guilty, pay a few millions, and reform the cartel.. rinse and repeat.
How would I benefit from this? I dont see a good reason to move, and lose my Java skills, those that keep me fed...
Well of course, why host the things yourself when you can dog out your (not paying with money) users for free bandwidth? I also do it!
The problem with allowing this is you are allowing code injection. It should not work, crosssite is a very very bad idea.
Yes de 70s, but more precisely 1870.
I am pretty sure phones will replace desktops.
Right now they have 6 GB of RAM , UFS 2.1 solid state drives (900MB/s) and decent processors, at the level of i3s from 4 years ago.. so only the software is failing, this is, Android is crap.
yep, that is ridiculous.
I am buying a new phone.. and instead of buying i on my own, it is cheaper to buy it from the carrier.
they will charge me 5£ extra a month for two years for a 320£ phone.
They might think "hey, we are retaining him", but they are just throwing good money away.
Tit for tat, we as in "the west" have been playing this same game for many decades... of course I dont like it, but it is to be expected...
They should just pay taxes... it is unreasonable that they do not pay taxes.. as they compete with individuals that DO have to pay taxes. It is simply unfair.
The problem here is apps are not properly containerized, andand can do basically anything..as if they were almost root. They do no need to change the system if they can pervert other apps...and here lies the design flaw!!
So the trick is to have an offshore company being the one that takes the legal risk and another that gets the money and owns the brands and trademarks, but not the business, so in case all goes shouth, time to open a new company...
I would also teach them lisp. Just for fun...
At least, I hope that when buyers get fired for buying violin, they get a sad violin tune...
Propietary is a BAD idea.. you get vendo lock in and then you have to accept the prices and conditions.
They do, and their cores are not ARM standard (well most arent).
Ads are just wrong, and in websites, even worse.
Lets start with tv ads.
They are designed to be intrusive, as the ad slingers think (in part, correctly) that othewise we wont notice them. But then, I just dont want to buy from people who ruin my experience by all flashing, putting volume up, interrupting my viewing, etc. Ads a major cause for me no longer watching tv anymore.
Now, ads made the jump to the internet, and in the worse possible way.
They should NOT be more than graphics and/or videos. The decision to allow them to inject code at essentially run (get in this case) time is horrible. The security implication is terrible.
So we end up with adslingers paying too little for space (mostly, 0£ per view), and paying basically per click. Yet who pays for bandwidth, cpu/gpu and risk? the user.
I would rather pay a certain amount of money monthly and the publishers divide it as they agree (per view, or whatever). They would get more money, and I would be less annoyed.
The publishers are to blame, of course, and The Register is in the naughty list. On my 27" Mac Screen (I had to put this somehow) if I disable ad blocking on the register, >50% of the space is ads.
So it is ads, with content as bait.
How come publlishers are content (not happy, and this does not apply to Thereg) to be paid 0,03-0,07 per page view, and then, on a website that you visit lets say daily, 3 times a day (and that is a lot) you ask 7£ per month? that implies 100-250 impressions and not repeating the same customer.. something that would NOT happen as many many campaigns are repeat ads..
So yes, I am annoyed.
As for MOAB working, it will kind of work as long as publishers follow the law, something Facebook does not. Ads getting out of the picture or at least being polite would be great, but we have to put something in place to replace the income of content creators.
That and "enterprise sata ssd".
They sell these ssds for more than other ppl sell NVMe drives. Makes absolute no sense.
Then they will complain about grey/white boxes, etc
Those that dont like their lot in life may well vote for total chaos, as they did last time. While they are going to be the ones more affected by this, I kind of understand it. The lowest rank employee of the warehouse does not hate the Rich people playing golf and earning millions from traded companies while doing nothing: they hate their midlevel manager.
So I fully expect conservatives to increase their support, and Labour to continue going down.
Of course not, they want him ,so....!
Well, they claim he was the only one with pl/sql skills.. yet they are running plenty of Oracle databases.
I think that speaks volumes about the management...
As I see it, it does not make sense.
He must be the culprit as "nobody else had the skills", say that he trespassed, yet provide no proof... looks sketchy.. IF he had a stolen laptop (good luck proving that) and that laptop was used to do the thing.. then maybe.
Now, why should the judge believe that the laptop was stolen? does he still have it and can the company prove that it belongs to them? after all they signed on it..
As for having a file with all the passwords, it makes absolute no sense, as that file can be transferred... and as for using the mac.. again, no sense, macs can be spoofed.
Not only that, you would also have to tell them how great your product is.. and as you have less money for ads than the crap alternative that also claims to have a great product...
Micropayments are horrible, look at DLCs.
What we need is to subscribe to a service, though google, your ISP or whatever, and they pay a monthly fee, that gets shared between what I use.
Some site would have limited access for such "unmetered access", but it would still be better for most people and it would imporve the experience. Ah.. no Ads if I pay a website.
This is exactly like a shopping mall. You have cinemas and restaurants... not becuase they are a big source of income, but becuase they get customers.
Smae could be said about selling milk and bread at supermarkets. Tesco probably loses money on those products, but good luck trying to have a supermarket and stop selling them!!
Same thing for apple. They rely on the ecosystem.. yet make it very inconvenient for way too many ppl... and they will lose market share. They should be able to afford losing money on proffesional machines that are used to develop SW for their ecosystem.. or that are used by evangelists... not doing so, is shortsighted.
As for the ppl who say their 9 year old pro is ok.. good luck rendering video. A modern top of the line CONSUMER pc with lets say a ryzen 1800 will absolutely leave it in the dust rendering video, etc.
MacOs and Macs in general are the milk and bread sections of the shop for Apple. They dont make the money from those sections, but if you remove them, the clients will stop coming.
So they need to do something.
I would make hackintosh legal, not just tolerated, and focus on desktops/servers/workstations.. but with limited support, and stringent testing.
Nope, the licensing should be based not on cores but a flat license.
That way, cheap machines get a relatively high license cost, while expensive ones get a relatively low cost license.
Also, if you charge lets say 200$ for the inicial license, and then extra for updates.. that would also shift them into expensive machines.
That would no be complete without mandatory TPM modules.. and most hackintosh computers are less secure than a MacBook.. so that is also a tradeoff.
If I were them, I would license it only for computers with no internal battery of more than 500mAh.. and that means servers and workstations. There, sorted.
ALL the certificates mean that.
The problem here is that the miscreants could prove they had control of the domains.. so any cert company would have issued the certs.
And they will insert it into the websites.
Just a few bogus https certificates, and problem solved. They are everywhere anyway...
I had extremely good and extremely bad indian work colleagues in the past.
The thing is how many hours theybhave to work, how much are they paid and if they are valued on volume or quality.
So it is the same as chinese manufacturing quality. They can both produce good quality stuff, but you would have to pay for that..and the outsourcing is done in pirely economic terms, so crap quality.
Because the whole purpose is to give the contracts to the non tax paying corporations!
They will be paid 5£, but HRMC will be charged 70-100£ at least.
I would argue that it was not the tallow itself, but the absolute disdain an abuse of power. the tallow was just an egregious example.
That is a problem of leadership and management.. you can do the same wih a public company.
If you think private companies run everything better, why not outsource the house of commons and the house of lords?
Natural monopolies will always act as such, so it is way better to have then under strict laws and control. At that point, it is just better for them to be part of government, because private industry has nothing to offer, not having a say on policies.
The rail only makes sense as a fully public or fully private (as in we dont care about the good of society, only profit) business... smae for water utilities, and power utilities.
I have yet to see a country that made power utilities private and got cheaper prices and incresed reliability. It is simply impossible, the companies will always try to charge as much as possible while saving on reliability as much as they can get away with.. there is no magic,
Now, things like car manufacturers, or plane manufacturers.. that is different. They will still try to form cartels, but they are not completely natural cartels.
He was great to read, a sad loss for all.
And they are recording the websites he visits, etc.
Well, I just don´t see the point of buying the things.
For the same price, you cound get a 1TB SSD + 32GB of RAM + IC glue and supercaps.
More capacity, probably faster...
But of course they wanted to steal all of that.
I find it funny that you use mongo as a nick... and speak about security!
I am shocked. As I have been by several bugs and "development choices" from subversion.
The whole point is sending messages from a friends phone that got borked.
