Hmm, this bit here looks wrong. What would happen if we disable it?

B) payroll goes down (and it's end-of-month)

Re: Hmmm...

"So different tasks will suffer to different extents." But the hardware...?

"The downside to this separation is that it is relatively expensive, time wise, to keep switching between two separate address spaces for every system call and for every interrupt from the hardware."

So now we'll have a little tax charged for every interrupt - *every* *interrupt*. How much software do you run that doesn't use disk or network or any I/O?

This was not the financial micro-transaction future I was thinking of.

Self-sufficiency

Draw up a list of everything essential and necessary to China's military. If they can't already source each domestically it is a priority for them to develop the manufacturing base to do so. In doing that, most everything essential to domestic civilian consumption follows also, and keeps the public quiet.

Whatever else it may resemble, this is a command economy directed to become independent of all international entanglements. Then, no one will be able to interfere in future developments as there will be no levers to use against them. This is economic strategy motivated by strict nationalism.

If you want to sell them ivory or teak or bulk refined ores, fine. Everything else is a negative for them.

Firefox 57's been quietly delaying tracking scripts

Notas Badoff
Silver badge

Oh, that's why

I have wondered what the hay was the problem. A news site page will peg out CPU usage at 60-75%, sometimes for minutes (in amazement I tried that many times). You see flash after flash of network activity as the various evil burrowing gnomes desperately load/reload/re-reload/re-re-re-re-really? I've killed tabs and watched as activity on the process continued for up to a minute! Stupidly starting "too many" tabs I've repeatedly had to kill FF entirely to grab my system back from the 'net.

"The feature won't behave perfectly in every case – but that, Bambas wrote, is because some pages are simply badly written. An ill-designed page that uses Google's Page-Hiding Snippet, for example, might load as blank for a few seconds, and if a developer is sufficiently inept to refer an API of an async tracking script from a sync script, a race condition is set up."

Hunh, we're talking about advertisers here, right? Do they *care* if their code is badly written? What protection does Firefox give us against that?

Totally shock claim: Comcast accused of gouging TV rivals

Re: Neutral (Pedal to the Pendulum)

A recurrent pattern throughout history / life / Hollywood is a pendulum swinging back and forth. People seem to be totally unable to notice when things have gone too far in one direction or the other. Helpless to stop themselves they just keep pushing farther and farther until something breaks. And the reverse swing begins.

So incumbents will keep 'improving' their situations to the point that even idiots know they are being ripped off. And then the whines of millions of voices crying out in anger will drown out the whines of incumbents.

And Pai will find himself served up cold by the politicians.

Notas Badoff

Strange pattern

Searched and I'm not in there, but found a couple roads named for me (woo?).

But in looking at comments I noticed something weird. Comments saying "keep net neutrality" were about that short.

Comments against net neutrality went on and on and on. Mentioning 'obama' and economy and freedom and ISPs and title this/that, all in quite highfalutin language. Either people were copy-pasting from many different advocacy sites (all alike), or the comments were generated by a randomizing bot, or there are 100's of thousands of sophisticated Americans highly knowledgeable about technology that are all 'conservative' and completely invisible in all other situations.

Sorry, I don't believe that many well-informed citizens exist in any country on *any* one subject.

Chain of evidence

Just passed on to a relative an article on a local election, where a "thumb drive" was misplaced and those votes simply not counted. Found three weeks later, the elections people carefully checked it over, totaled the for/against votes from it per election issue/race, and cheerfully said "Oh, none of the actual election results would have been changed! So no harm done (and no we won't be changing the election totals or noting the error permanently.)"

This less than a year after my vote in a local election tied one race, 521 votes each, leading to a runoff election.

Why the hell is "double-entry bookkeeping" described as a critical foundation for business, but election paper trails are "meh"?

Re: Solution

Forking right! ?

I see some project's code that's wrong and needs maybe three lines changed. To submit a pull request I have to fork the whole project, change those three lines, update, push, generate pull request, yada-yada. I can't actually delete/erase my fork, so those files stay 'duplicated', right?

I'm just not quite getting the assertion that all that duplication is duplication so much as Github's equivalent to softlinks.

My 0 cents on zero sense

People respond to gripers with the easy "why don't you contribute money?" "why don't you contribute time?" and the like. So considering the negatives and to-be-expected backlash, why didn't Mozilla contribute time and money to Giorgio Maone and make sure NoScript was enabled at release?

I think they did contribute _some_ time in communications, and even polished up some APIs to be closer to useful, but that may not have been enough to prevent this stupid result. Which was very short-sighted.

Mozilla, always proud of themselves.

Knee cappers

"The Link was sold between 2011 and 2015, ..."

"This offer comes after owners exploded with fury this week upon learning that the manufacturer will effectively kill off most of the functionality for the Harmony Link next March when its SSL/TLS encryption certificate expires."

I must be confused. They built it and sold it with a known date they would stop supporting it? Or they built it without knowing how to would keep it updated and running? Or they built it without realizing technology would make their architecture insecure in the near future?

The good news is your knee replacement surgery went wonderfully. Your new knee was all shiny and sparkly when it went in and it will run just fine.. The bad news is it will explode in 6 years.

Dumb autonomous cars can save more lives than brilliant ones

Notas Badoff

Better than the next guy

It's been just a week since a driver ran a stop sign and boom. A second earlier and our car would have done serious damage to his passenger. A second later and his car would have killed me, likely outright.

There are any number of checks that would have stopped this. Like there was a stop sign. The street he was trying to cross (the witness said "blow thru") is so major just reference to a map would've said nuh-unh. The speed he was going on that side street was at *least* double posted or reasonable. The angle that street had to the intersection prevented seeing a whole direction of traffic. And at that time of day the odds that any 4-second period wouldn't have a car crossing is pretty low.

Also, computers don't have mid-life crises causing 50-year-olds to drive like 15-year-olds.

Count me as positive that automatic driving has got to be better than my fellow drivers. Even now. If I could ask his passenger I think that'd be another 'yea' vote.

In favor of maybe

Since people love mentioning their own unique particular peculiar experiences as guides to general reality for all, let me participate.

I worked for a mid-sized tech company many-moons-ago and had incentive stock options. Decided to sell 'some' to move it out of that company - no specific knowledge required to be dubious generally.

The company's stock options selling people called back the next day and said "Oops, we thought that first digit on the number of shares was a '2' instead of the '1' you wrote. Is that okay?" Did I mention my feelings about the company? I said yes.

Monday following something burped, stock dropped 15+% and my dubiosity had been rewarded doubly. Did I know something? Not specifically, just generally, and ya'kno, diversify, right?

Official: Perl the most hated programming language, say devs

Notas Badoff
Silver badge

It has served me well

I've written binary file dumpers and converted oil well logging floating point formats to IEEE 754 using Perl. A beautiful language that forgets to permit flexibility is useless.

Perl shows its origin as an amalgamation of tools, for the purpose of being a more useful tool. The additions to please language purists also happened to be those most useful. (catch the theme here?)

I suppose there was poetry written in hieroglyphics. And some would reject it, saying "Ick, they use ibises and cobras and cartouches on names!"

A quote I found years ago:

Finally, a note of caution. This language, like English, can be a medium for prose, or a medium for poetry. The difference between prose and poetry is not that different languages are used, but that the same language is used, differently.

Microsoft concedes to Mozilla: Redmond will point web API docs at Moz Dev Network

Notas Badoff
Silver badge

Start from 'working'

A few years back Microsoft tried to lead a multi-vendorsteward effort at consolidated documentation of 'web', WebPlatform.org. Unfortunately the consolidation started with a straight dump from Microsoft's web documentation. And remember, they didn't get 'web' for a long time. It was lacking, lack-luster and often wrong.

Somehow they got a clue and dumped it onto Github, after declaring the effort 'discontinued' sometime post-2015. That was actually a good illustration that things _are_ getting more real at Microsoft re: 'web'. (Unbelievable but true)

If Microsoft are now linking to MDN for web apis it is only further recognition of bad their own docs were. Another (amazing) instance of getting more real. Cue glaciers in hell...

"I think JS is perceived as "cool" especially to a lot of younger developers." As it has a very low bar to use on the browser and now on the backend, it is easy to get involved with. Like back last century for me, for enhancing user interactions with lists. (woo)

"... and just seems really obsessed with it." That enabling immediate response to users can be rewarding and addictive for devs should be obvious. I'm surprised you haven't noticed.

Defense and deafness

"... that they think is a valuable part of their defensive portfolio because of its broad applicability."

So they're lots of people all angsty because of the patents clause. And they each would swear they would never be party to suing Facebook, so why the "hostile action" by Facebook?

And then their company gets taken over by someone. And then another takeover. And a few steps later they find out their 'feelings' don't mean nothing, and there's a someone looking only at what their technology is worth in patentable ideas. You don't even count as cannon-fodder at that point, but your work could be used offensively in a patent war.

Now how do you prevent this being possible? Because Facebook apparently is looking at the world as being a bit more, well, angsty, than you do.

BTW: This obviously does not apply to that open source where a company is not declaring ownership of a product. If it can be or has been turned over to a community governance or whatever, then there is no one - no company - who would be suing Facebook, right? So I'm really rather confused at these pure open source projects getting confused at this. Or can you tell me who would be suing Facebook and get into this problem. A 'foundation'?
