Huawei, you could enhance your credibility if you had your kit banned in China.

Another Apple engineer cuffed over alleged self-driving car data theft: FBI swoop on bod as he boards plane to China
Re: Only barbarous savages or coffee drinkers ... would even consider instant 'tea'
Meaning (via Google Translate)
No, my good man, you are wrong. Mr. Proudhon was French, so he knew nothing about tea, and he was a mutualist / anarchist, not a socialist. But this is a mistake that is easy to understand, because there are many people who think that Mr. Corbyn is a Marxist. Today, even insults are thrown by those who do not understand their derivation.
There you have it in a nutshell. The cloud is based on the premise of a bank. The bank lends out depositor's money to others on the notion that not all of the depositors need access to their deposits at the same time. If there is a run on the bank (sorry we're out of capacity at the moment), the bank will have an auction to see who gets access to their own money by paying MORE.
What a delightful idea. IT dealing with the banks.
A great solution for the US Military
Since Strategic Command still uses the granddaddy of them all
Why not supply custom versions at $US 2 million a pop?
Re: Knuckling under
Superconductors? Really? Cool down your dreams using liquid Helium? How many watt-hours just to power the compressors to keep it liquid? How many effing Pounds Sterling is this going to cost for your anticipated "improvement"? You have any idea of the increase in efficiency you are proposing? Call back when you do.
There comes a point where these Wall St. types must be considered to be bona fide clowns. And the rest of us are hanging on to their every word.
Is it reasonable to think that because Office365 is up by the admittedly statistically farcical "triple digits" that regular Office should do the same? Are we so naïve to believe their expectations of earnings continuing "To Infinity and Beyond!"? Are we simply playing the game of getting out of the market at the top and letting the sucker, I mean investor behind us eat it?
Re: Photovoltaics is a one time, one way molecular erosion PARLOR TRICK !
If anything, the cost to build a renewable infrastructure is just as bad. The equivalent levels of carbon emitted would practically cancel each other out. Benefit? Running an industrial economy versus a hunter-gatherer one.
Re: so NOT putting lots of chemicals in your body is NOT ok then?
"The fallout from using DDT in the 1950's/60's is still a problem in many parts of the world"
Yes it is, but not the way you propose. It continues to be an effective way of controlling malaria laden mosquitoes "in many parts of the world". Its discontinuance is directly related to the rise of malaria in these regions.
"If someone had the balls to stand up to Hitler and (more importantly) his cronies early on, WW2 may not of happened."
I could really see this happening.
Imagine Neville Chamberlain asking Hitler to be more "inclusive". "Why yes, Prime Minister Neville" Hitler replies,"You are so correct. And just to show my good faith in the matter, I've just included the Sudetenland...."
You sir, are a shill.
1. Yes, Licensing costs are lower. Support costs are higher. Does anyone know where Redhat gets its money?
2. This argument is false compared to Windows 7.
3. This argument is also false. Categorically.
4. This is a pompous argument. Apache is the most viable source of malware delivery today.
5. Nuts to this. If a vendor supports their own AND neutral standards, your argument lumps them in with proprietary vendors as well. Lies, damned lies and statistics.
6. WHEN they get around to it. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/01/21/kde_bug_quashed/
Good news, everyone! KDE cookie-scoffing bug smashed after 10 years ...
You can puff out your chest in pride over this one.
Meet the Green Challenge
"The OpenBSD Foundation is based in Canada, and, according to de Raadt, 'a number of logistical reasons prevent us moving the machines to another location which might offer space/power for free.'"
This is a run on effect where in the mad dash to renewable energy generation, public utilities are paying private renewable generation firms a guaranteed percentage of their stated capacity even if they don't produce a milliwatt of power. If a solar farm has a stated output of 10Mw at full capacity, the producers are guaranteed $CAN 445.00 a day producing little or no electricity. My advice is for OpenBSD to look for charitable donations from these suppliers. It's my tax money that they will be paid with, no the producers.
