I assumed you were joking but had to check just in case.
Then I started reading more of his twittage and had to make sure it wasn't a parody account.

Really not sure what you're trying to say here. I'd like to give you the benefit of doubt and assume you mean you shouldn't employ racists. The alternative meaning I can see sickens me.
Hmm... looked through your posting history. Either you're not particularly nice, or you do a fine job pf pretending so.
The cloud won' affect their power (as they'll be waaay above the vast majority of cloud).
Now, would cloud be an issue for what they're looking at? Possibly, although the beauty of these is that unlike a satellite it'll be easier to tell it to look in particular areas and perhaps avoid the cloud. Note an earlier poster wondered if these could be desired to help the OS map non-UK locations, some of which might be a little less occluded.
Such things as "no adblockers", "sign up to read" and this "because of the GDPR" mere;y cut down on the sites I use. There are plently more.
Some of those which actually ask nicely to remove the adblocker (and which don't take the mickey with the ads) get my views and the revenue that's somehow worth.
Well, he's good at marketing *himself*, if nothing else....

I was wondering the same thing. I suppose if this is aimed at archives it makes some sort of sense. Even my possible home use-case (ripping/transcoding/storing/playing DVD movies) would probably be below that 550TB per year, but this really isn't what I'd want to put in my datacentre for general storage.
First things first, this isn't a "friend of a friend", it's about something I did. This is real, despite the fact it's too stupid to be true.
As the main sysadmin I regularly was called on to help out with all the trivial stuff - clearing up disk space, removing unintended programs and so on. One chap reported he was running low of disk space on his laptop, so I did the normal thing of removing the NT Service Pack backups, large temporary files and so on, and emptied the Recycle Bin. Noting really all that radical, only it turns out he stored documents in the Recycle Bin because it saved space.
Aha - the difference is that this has all that is actually needed to fuel a human (thus the name). Even consuming all a n energy bar, cup-a-soup, pot noodle and sandwich *combined* won't give you the nutrients that Huel (or similar - other products are available) will.
I wouldn't deny it's expensive and not exactly appealing in itself, but it does a job. I've been tempted to try something like this just to help ensure I get a good balance of essential nutrients instead of the crap I can so easily consume instead for lunch.
So you're unable to understand that ElReg doesn't always post strictly IT related articles, you're unable to read the link (which is a bit of a clue as to the content of the article), and you clearly didn't read the article and have no real knowledge on the topic, yet you still felt the need to give us your opinion.
Fair enough, I guess.
If it was the office of an ISP in Denmark Street, I remember a job interview there back in 2000 or so, and I think they were Sun based at that point. One of the selling points was the cool location and listening to people playing guitars. Turned the job down as a chunk of the renumeration was in shares... Still, they still seem to exist, so it mightn't have been a bad thing to accept, but the tide was certainly turning at that point!
I have a greater faith in my ability to deliver a Linux desktop across an enterprise (to a degree - there's only so much a single person can do), and a far greater belief in my software provider not to screw it up royally. Supporting the system is easy, but I agree that user support would be interesting and require more work (initially, at least).
Why do I say this? Well, the teaching and compute clusters I manage just plain work, even with the overall org's Windows-centric print and file solutions. My users are all pretty bright (being PG students and academics) and able to look after themselves in the main. I'd certainly not offer to extend the service to all academics and the admin staff as they have a College based system that works for them and is supported centrally. SEP.
Hardly needs an expert, someone with GCSE French from over 20 years ago can get this. I'd hazard a guess and say "internaute" means "internet user", rather than "internet". Oh, and I think you meant "is unavailable", not "in unavailable"...
Looking forward to reading your translation of Castorama's statement, although for a fee I could do it for you instead?
The blog post (which I assume was linked to in the removed comments above) doesn't appear to contain anything defamatory. It states that allegations have been made which are being investigated, and that the Project is receiving legal advice from specialists in that area.
An interesting part:
"People who believe they may have been victims of criminal behavior are advised to contact law enforcement. We recognize that many people in the information security and Internet freedom communities don't necessarily trust law enforcement. We encourage those people to seek advice from people they trust, and to do what they believe is best for them."
Probably good general advice, but what a world we live in.
There are three things that appeal to me about FreeBSD:
1. The license. I prefer the permissiveness of the BSD license over the GPL.
3. Systemd - or rather, the lack of it.
I'm a RHEL admin, so with the move to RHEL7 I'm stuck with systemd, despite my revulsion. I've seriously considered moving storage and core servers to FreeBSD just for ZFS and systemd, the license is a bonus. Workstations and compute nodes have to remain of RHEL for the users, but these (the systems, not the users) are almost disposable, I'm happy to wipe them at a moment's notice.
