disney did it and nothing happened...
irrelevant as the ship engines will be dead anyway...
The main issue here is what services we provide in the uk. And the main bread winner is banking. In order to continue being a leader in banking we must comply with eu rules, or they will take it from us, as simple as that. Now, they probably dont want the repercussions of that, but they can do it and there is little we can do about it.
We just have to deal with that.
Almost for sure stupid, and he probably got a nice call from a lawyer just to keep him honest.
pure water will cause corrossion.
use car coolant liquid.
A norway solution is better than the alternative, but way worse than our previous agreement. We had an amazing deal.
Now, we ant get the norway second class agreement for obvious political reasons...so out of eu it is...
Their practices are close to mafia practices...and because of that they have a monopoly...always a bad thing.
Ask the duxe who wrote who owns scotland, for example.
the news induatry tanks for several reasons.
One is that people have realized tbey are beng fed not news, but regurgitated agencies news, and modified for the masters of tbe source you are reading.
Also, global competition.

As your system may need recovery....
Nope, it is the company that uses a broken system.
They should pay a lump sum at the end that includes all money, with an explanation.
That is the law in Spain, and it works okish. Not really ok because I have yet to receive the correct ammount (ussually I have received a bit too much).
This is normal in spain when you change jobs (in any way).
I would trust them as much as Hamas. So not at all.
Err, there is a difference between "the truth" and "a part of the truth"
You are ommiting important parts, as the previous party being ousted in a paid for coup, it being made illegal, dirty ellections, repression, etc. Ukraine is not a democracy right now. Of course the previous administration were proxies too, but does not change my opinion.
As for the invasion of Crimea, I agree with you. The Crimea vote was as clean as the general ukraine election. This is, not at all!
As for 32.000 russian troops dead, no way, I dont know where your are geting your facts from, but just think about it... the numbers are so inflated as to seem to come from the onion or north korea... Russia coulkd not withstand that number of casualties. If they thought they could, they would have gone to full war in Ukraine and Syria, and probably elsewhere.
Errr, no, it was catastrophic to some exporters, including spanish ones that went out of business, but asmost big companies associated with the us were ok, then, no problem.
And now you see it confirmed: you cannot trust US software companies, as the US will steal your company secrets. The fact that they take this decission without any kind of proof whatsoever should make people think about US security agencies activity and the gag orders behind those activities.
A modified distro is a no no.
You DON'T want to do that!!
It would be way better to give 200.000£ o rmore to someone to take care of that.
Just use a "standard" deployment of LTS with specific packages, and call it a day, and learn to live with that.
The most expensive part of the network is the last mile.
And the reson for it is mainly population density and complexity of coordinating with the customers/victims.
The higher the density, the cheaper it is to provide each of them with a connection, so high rises are great for telcos benefits.
Now, as for London, the problem is oligopoly and a covert backbone monopoly, some but worse happens in New York, for example.
So why give better options while you can charge a lot for crap DSL?
I have cable... but only because it is less oversubscribed than DSL, I would be happy with 12/4 Mb DSL line IF it was not oversubscribed.
Of course, that would mean paying more than a 100Mb Docsis connection.. and that makes absolute no sense.
Same as child porn.
People who pay for child porn create the incintives for kids to be exploited.
So the intelligence services provide exactly the same incentives as child porn buyers.
All of this damages the population, and creates thousands of millions in damages. That economic damage translates into lack of money for hospitals, improving roads, etc. That means people die because of this.
How would you meter the differences? ;)
Been there, done that. Too hard for me, race conditions are crazy.. I would rather have somebody else do that job... I mean, I can do it, but it is REALLY hard.
It will be great.
The screen is the same as my iMac 5k, so very nice.
My iMac does have some cooling issues.. if I compile for 5 minutes, it will get quite warm and the fam will spin madly, I wonder how much noise/heat issues will de Xeons have.. will they throttle while rendering?
As for rendering, etc.. well, I would rather have a threadripper, much faster and cheaper. But sure not as pretty, and if you like Mac OS...
Intel seems really interested in pushing bad quality parts to their customers, are the Managers short on Intel?
That is why if you have half a brain you use percentile 95 prices, and discard garbage.
I see a big market for them in "ultrasecure virtual servers"
A box with 2 32 cores could be rented assuring the customers total privacy.. so if the new xeons are not that good they might sell them a lot.
It is mandatory in Europe. And has saved many lives.
It is not in the US, I guess it will if someone who is really loaded dies or has a loved one die and sues both the owner of the semi and the manufacturer, or a class action is started.
And that is exactly the reason it should be mandatory.
With or without autodriving, semis are too dangerous without proper safety devices like these.
Also, the guard rails are just stupid!! PLenty of better designs from the usual ones have been done, yet states and countries continue to put the unsafe ones, even if they are not always cheaper.
Oh, so you dont use cinnamon, and certainly you dont use USB devices heavily...
Cloud is nice.
It allows you to not deal with most of the plumbing... but, of course, some DR scenarios are just impossible to solve at a rational cost.
That is the proce you pay for convinience...
The reason being any navy dangerous enough to have real chances of sinking your carrier locating it by radio will know (sound, satellites) its location.
So this is either for interoperability with the us (that makes kind of sense.. but how much are we going to pay them for their benefit?) or it makes no sense at all.
Of course, and then the prices can increase as much aas they want..
Same website for gods sake, this is 2017!!
The thing is.. the problem is mostly to get the data in and out of the base stations, and route it afterwards, not between the mobile phones and the base stations.
So while yes, it would be more efficient, it will only solve a minor problem in specific parts of the network.. so it is NOT worth spending so much money.
And cmon, most people have had 4g only for the las 3 years.. with many 800band deployments in 2016, for example... so now, no 5G in europe for quite some time unless the spectrum gets cheaper or they do not require population coverage.
They just pass legislation banning security, and then use their resources to pwn you, but not to go after the criminals. It is stupid, and the problem only got this bad because governments are not only doing nothing, but contributing to the problem themselves.
You should tell that to her voters, not to her.
You forgot to add that we should ban importing electricity, so we should be demothballing those lovely coal operated power stations, using local coal.
As cuts will demand that one day a week schools close, we could use that underused child working force to shovel coal, and therefore get cheap coal. It will also help with long term costs, as these children will pay their retirement but will probably die before from silicosis. You see, short and long term covered with a single well thought decision.
In my microelectronics experience, a custom/task specific micro es 10-30x as efficient as a non specific part.
Of course this is only for the processor.. then you have memory, fabric connectors, etc.. I still believe you could pull a 5x efficiency on a HTTP or mariadb or whatever task specific task you can give the micro.
It is a question of determining the instructions being executed by the micros, and optimizing as much as possible the platform for those.
It does not make sense for the kind of operations I run, but it certainly would for google, amazon, etc.
Of course, this creates additional problems.. as then changing your stack becomes slow and expensive... your processors are custom made for your stack!!
I would prefer we dont go that route, as those are benefits we the non titanic size operations, would not benefit from.
We currently benefit from the investments these companies do: we can also buy these processors and put them in our servers, or rent them.. but if they all go custom, we would be left to run "legacy" platforms, and unable to compete.
And if the cost of entering the market and exiting is huge, there would be no free market, but and oligopoly of internet companies.
Yes, but it is a risk a manager/director can take to go up the ladder..."look at me, I saved 10/100 million"
From my experience 1 and 3.
Lying, plus incompetent PHBs messed
They can´t pass the buck without recognizing the problem was outsourcing....
You should have qualified electricians for your DCs. If you don't you will have problems.
Nobody wants to sink money in that!! And it is a dead end career decision to go that way...
Or maybe expend some quality time with the family, while crying over the unfair treatment and using bills to heat the mansion.
Seen that more than once.
Also, people expect 3 year old fuel not to clog the filters.
They see IT as they see plumbing: a cost centre with almost no repercussion in their main gig.
The fact that they whould be a SW powerhouse escapes them.
But two identical systems capable of taking over each other is not 2x the expense, but 4x the expense.
So the intelligent thing here would be to have systems as light as possible (jo Java, please, PLEASE), and have them replicated in three places.
Now, knowing this type of company, I can imagine many fat servers with complicated setups.. the 90s on steroids.
The solution, of course, is to have critical systems that are LIGHT. It saves a ton of money, and they could be working right now, just a small hiccup.
Note: you would need 4x identical systems, + 4 smaller ones for being "bomb proof"
2x identical systems on production. Different locations
2x the above, for preproduction tests, as you cant test with your clients.
4x for developing and integration. They can be smaller, but have to retain the architecture.
At best, you can get rid of integration and be the same as preproduction.
These days, almost nobody does this.. too expensive.
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.
