"Personal Cheeses" (by Johnny Cash or Depeche Mode - take your pick)
Richard Cheese does a cover off that.
Not to get partisan about it, but Kavanaugh said he never drank heavily, but several of his former college classmates distinctly remember him drinking excessively, and was "belligerent and aggressive" when drunk.
That is obviously "He said"/"she said" stuff - there is never going to be "proof" of a lie, so everything has to be on balance of probabilities.
There is nothing wrong with drinking when a student, and working out how to handle your drink, but on the balance of probabilities, he fibbed about his student alcohol consumption. Personally, I'm not convinced about the sexual assault allegations, I'm absolutely convinced that as a student he got wasted regularly, and then lied about it because that would paint the assault allegations in a different light.
Nobody is going to fly tip IBM model M's. Firstly, the resale value is so high that only an idiot would do it.
I got my model-m from keyboardco.com ~10 years ago for £24. If you want one now (I spilt sugary milky tea over mine, and it never properly cleaned, even after going through the dishwasher, hard to use it without R,D,F or G), you're looking for easily £100 - more if its a proper one made in the 80s (the late 90s one are _definitely_ not as good).
Bought a daskeyboard 4 to replace it, also cost ~£100, nowhere near as good (keys keep repeating).
A kubelet is the smallest component of a kubernetes cluster.
Some of them I do actually write in C++, more in Go, most in some sort of scripting language, because writing all the things in C/C++ is a waste of fucking time.
Still not CPU constrained.
The point of the 13" MBP (2018) is more cores + hyperthreading and processor grunt. (ie for developers).
You wouldnt want to run anything more than a basic VM on an Air.
What the actual fuck? Who runs VMs when developing, is this 2012?
I don't need much CPU whilst developing - you only work in one small area of your code at a time - but the thing which makes my laptop stop being useful for development is when it runs out of RAM, and can't keep all those different kubelets in memory.
CPU? I haven't felt constrained CPU wise for ~10 years. RAM is the only thing I run out of when developing locally (and, I suppose, battery...)
They obviously don't remember Slater the Traitor.
Type something, delete it, type it again. You often get a different set of results. How the hell is that considered shippable?
Ah, the joys of MLT systems (More Like This). You didn't like the search results it gave you last time obvs, so here are some different ones!
Seriously, they included criminals in the list? How do they expect the car to identify criminals
Easy, make it a crime to strike a self driving car with your person, call it "Battery of a semi-sentient corporate person". Then, anyone who gets run over, I'm sorry, who viciously assaults this defenceless robot's tyres with their face is already a criminal and we're OK with saving them from a future sojourn at the prison farm.

You don't do much business in China then? China cloud that integrates with our existing cloud buildout tools makes hosting content for Chinese users a whole lot easier.
You should move to gitlab. They never screw up.
Not more than once an hour..
So, three gyroscopes are good, one is ok, but two are not an option?
Pretty sure its down to a combination of:
* you can't do anything with none, so when Hubble is down to its last two gyros, the plan is to only use one of them at a time to preserve their lifetime further.
* the quality of results you get with two gyros is similar to with one gyro, 3 is much better.
On 60,000 patents. Not on their other 30,000+ patents.
If it was caused by too much cheap credit - then why was the solution providing even cheaper loans?
It wasn't caused by cheap credit, it was caused by collateralized debt obligations. This is packaging up debt from different sources into "packages" which are then sold on to other people, which in itself is not that much of a problem, but the crisis was caused by clever* people repeatedly packaging up and reselling debt on and on. Eventually it got to the point where the (mainly) banks holding this debt actually had no idea about the quality of this debt - the chance of them getting paid. Due to the repeated re-packaging, the debt was marked as AAA/AA+ (yes, just like ebay..)
Now, a lot of this debt was sub-prime mortgages. Whilst house prices are rising, this isn't a problem, you get a special cheap rate, because there is little risk in default - the bank takes the house, sells it, gets paid. When house prices stagnate or fall, there are no more special cheap rates, because the risk is much higher. Of course, then when the special rates expire, the debt will default.
The problem then was that these banks were all holding hundreds of billions of dollars of supposedly AA+ debt, but really its CCC or below. They get scared shitless, because they have no idea how much bad debt they have or what their exposure is, and then they stop lending to anyone (or rather, their lending rates go sky high). One crazy statistic is that 50% (or $300bn) of AA+ or greater CDOs issued between 2005-2007 were in junk status by 2009 - that's nuts!
Once banks won't lend to each other, banks start failing, government costs go through the roof (as almost every government runs on a deficit, anticipating growth that will negate the debt), and the entire modern world collapses in on itself. At that point, the only thing that can be done is to have governments step in to guarantee the debt (by taking it from the banks in return for equity), and setting ridiculously low central bank rates.
So yeah, cheap credit anticipating house price rises was the cause, but between the end of the world and stuffing the banks full of cheap credit, we choose the latter.
As to who to blame, you can blame the clever boys and girls making the CDOs; I prefer to blame the credit agencies who gave them these CDOs triple A ratings in the first place.
* Not the good clever, the "special" clever...
I've been a FF user since the age when is was named Phoenix (this is pre-Y2k for young people here)
Didn't know 2003 was pre-Y2k, or perhaps thats one of them Y2k bugs?
Then the damages should have been trebled because of its incompetence - if there is no penalty for incompetence, then they will continue to be incompetent.
it's a remote-code execution vulnerability, specifically, an out-of-bounds memory write. The good news is that an attacker can only trigger the bug by tricking the victim into opening a specially crafted Jet file
So this "remote code vulnerability" can only be exploited by tricking the victim into opening a local file? How the fuck is that "remote"?
Get with the program, they make replicas of people who disagree with them.
Pretty sure he meant Pentium 2, because at least then the architecture, clock rate and RAM size all come from the same era at least.
No, you get up to six Office subscriptions, all you need is someone to give them too, children, spouses, significant others etc.
Would be nicer if they cut the price to $16.67 per user per year and then let us decide how many licenses we need. How does that conversation go anyway, "Great news Timmy, MS have given us an extra license so you no longer have to feel like we love the other 3 more than you any more (but we do.)"
It's how most VC works though isn't it, people invest in a VC fund, they get a part-ownership of the venture, and consequently of the things the venture invests in.
Thanks, now I don't need to write that too :)
I don't look at images, I look at changesets:
Pretty fucking simple - why are so many otherwise sensible people so quick to dismiss antisemitism.
...and is currently banned until 2038.
Until the end of time(_t)!
The proof is not in the pudding, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
now go ahead and try to stop them talking to each other, especially if they have children
IMHO, that does stop a lot of the talking to each other.
In terms of data rate of a single drive it doesn't, SAS offers many advantages over SATA when dealing with many disks, particularly multipath, better data recovery, talking the same protocol from controller to enclosure to disk and not having to use Serial ATA Tunnelling Protocol.
If you're interested in those attributes, this probably isn't what you're looking for...
Google gets way more from OSS than they give back. They also don't open source a great deal of their innovations, which has lead to the industry standard version of those innovations being not from google, but clean room re-implementations - prime example Hadoop, derived from descriptions of GFS and MapReduce. Its hypocritical to criticise another company for doing what they want with their code when you do precisely the same thing.
No, it's not bad behavior, it's a fundamental misunderstanding of open source economic models, and a desire to have your cake and eat it too.
Google open source economic models: Google gets all the cake. Be happy with the crumbs, and if you eat the crumbs, fuck off bitching about our cake.
I don't know why the British trains hold on to such old and nasty systems for most of the country.
Virtually everything you said about Swiss trains is true of British trains. When I buy a ticket on my phone, its immediately there as an eticket, scannable at the gates. My travelcard, if I have one, is linked in to that system, so when I purchase the ticket it is the discount fare and the photocard ID is linked to the ticket.
This is about buying the travelcard though, not the tickets. From a quick perusal of SBB's website, looks like I can apply for that online or in-person. Oh shit, the same old and nasty systems as Britain...
Our rolling stock is much shitter however. And their websites work..
I find the DVLA driver license verification tool* effective and modern, and when I renewed my driving license, it was literally 5 minutes of point n click, with a photo from my smartphone; it couldn't have been simpler.
* When you rent a car; you go on the DVLA website, enter a few details from your license and get a 6 digit code to give to the rental agency to verify your license.
Well, they used Grupo Financiero Bital, which after 2004 was bought and rebranded as HSBC Mexico, under the direction of HSBC US, so I'd imagine the reasons were "We know where you live" and "Here's a big bag of money if you just shut up and help".
It still amuses me that people think of the Hong Kong and Shanghai as a British bank - may be HQ'd here, its not a British bank.
Once I tried to unblock my own toilet instead of paying for a plumber, and I got covered in shit. It doesn't mean there is a toilet-plumber boys club, it just means I don't know what I'm doing.
To be fair, they give a lot to OSS in return.
So (helped by the El Reg hacks who linked to it) read some of the syllabus. This is a pretty decent course; it is not "Do shit in Office/Windows", its an intro to software engineering. For instance:
Understand and use the following appropriately:
Damn, I work with people who don't understand and use pointers properly.
As for the science, this is the difference between school and university. School is about learning how to do things. In A level maths, you learn how to apply techniques like integration/differentiation, statistical methods, vector equations for motion, etc. In university level maths, you learn how to prove those techniques. This computing course is about the techniques of programming; its not supposed to be about the theory of computing.
Computer science is not about programming. One of the most famous computer scientists said "Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes", and barely ever touched a computer.
Even that's a bit of a tortured analogy, to be honest.
You do yourself a disservice, that's the best damn analogy I've heard! Zorin is to Ubuntu like a 2008 Tesla Roadster is to a Lotus Elise.
It's named after the two Zorin brothers' surname (Russian-Ukrainian) who live in the Republic of Ireland
Obvs they aren't allowed anywhere near Silicon Valley
Lets have it then; in what way are they taxed improperly or not according to the law?
You don't really have an option to change it in Julia, you can simply create custom array types that are zero based, which will be a lot of fun when you aren't sure what kind of array you are being passed, or if one person likes 0-based and another likes 1-based..
PS: All whitespace is meaningful. If the language itself doesn't take any meaning from it, the developers reading the code do.
I believe you.
Because lets ask ourselves this simple question: what about the people who committed the 'crime' in the first place? Wouldn't it make more sense to hold them accountable for their own actions?
I would argue there are two sets of people committing a crime; the people who posted the illegal content, and those who host it and profit from it. All the social networks use algorithms to choose what content is displayed to you, it is not straight up UGC as they keep claiming.
If a photographer takes a privacy invading photo*, then they are/maybe committing a crime. If that photo is then chosen to be published by a newspaper, the newspaper is then also liable.
Certainly in EU/UK, the free lunch of claiming "Hey, we have nothing to do with what is there, its just user generated content" is almost over. They choose what gets displayed to you, and they profit from the ads shown alongside it; they will soon be listed as publishers** of that content.
* In jurisdictions where that matters
** perhaps an intermediate stage between "UGC" and "Publisher", but claiming "UGC! Safe Harbor!" is going going gone
Imagine if someone wanted to create a .christianity TLD.
Well, they had no problem approving .church, .bible, .catholic, .faith and .kosher ...
NT 4 was great compared to 95/98, but 2000 (NT5) was a pretty decent upgrade to NT 4, like somewhat better driver support.
On other conduct, it appears fine for Khan the Mayor of London to lead calls for a derogatory blimp of Trump to be used
Khan did nothing of the sort, the protesters applied for permission to fly the blimp over Parliament Square, as have hundreds of other people this year. Their application was in order, the safety certificates were correct, and Khan quite rightly said that his role is not to decide whether it is a tasteful protest, just whether it is a legal one.
Of course that means Khan is fair game to be shown being fucked in the ass by an inflatable pig, that's not at all religious hate speech....
Does anyone believe that Congress can define anything that is actually bipartisan?
Please feel free to pick apart my rational and include what he's done for Russia
He has alienated the rest of the world against America, reducing its soft and hard power. A weak America means a stronger Russia.
result = (f(x) for x in input)
result = [x for x in result if x]
No point in having that extra list around wasting memory!
[(x, y, x/y) for x, y in ((x, f(x)) for x in input_data) if y > 0]
The new syntax is using less characters. This appeals to many programmers but I thought Python was not such a language.
At $JOB, that would immediately fail code review. Nested list comprehensions are hard to comprehend, particularly compared to assignment expressions, and disguise their purpose. Lets run through how many PEP-20 violations that is - its ugly, its complex, its nested, its dense and it has poor readability.
