Cloudera and Hortonworks shareholders will be asked to sign off on the companies' uneven merger on 28 December.
Oh no they won't!!
(I'm off to the panto that day.)

Group Policy works great for user setups on Windows. You just add a user in the correct OU, and it picks up the policy. Sets up home drives, profiles, application configs and stuff like that.
If you're spinning up lots at once, Powershell does the trick, but if they come in dribs and drabs then ADUC and GPO saves a lot of guesswork.
What happens if they both press it?
I'd like to hope that the Captain has priority then. After all, it's the Captain's aircraft. Which seat the Captain sits in can vary between airlines, but once the plane is set up for an airline it shouldn't need changed until it changes hands.
That's how I would do it, anyway... All opinion. I'm the guy sitting in the back.
Plan for the worst case, not the average case.
That's not how it works in most of the civilised world. Building a road bridge? What's the higher between traffic load and maximum wind load. Add a safety margin to that one factor, and you have the design load for the bridge.
However, Sky Q tends to tear up the civilised part of wifi and wipe its arse with it, so you may have a point there.
GPRS was added to that around 99/2000 to include data, but throughput was very variable maxing out at around 9KB/s in real world
You're close. GSM would support data (did on my old 8210), but at 9600bps. GPRS would go up to 45kbps. Given the dial-up alternatives it wasn't awful. I believe it gets about 115kbps these days, but that's still awful for modern web pages...
@DJV - To be fair to Mikrotik, that vulnerability was patched months ago. I updated my router no problem, and I can't really feel that we can lay blame at Mikrotik's feet if their customers don't click the Update button.
To others, yes it's a complex router and you have to put the effort in to secure it. It's only a couple of rules, but it would be nice if there were security levels on the ports so that traffic would automatically flow "down" or "across", but not "up". So long as there's no fundamental flaw, like they'll show my browsing history to my mum or something...
Because if you're going to have a seal of approval saying "this is secure", then it had better be secure and supported. If you have revisions later then you end up with secure 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and the consumer will just be confused. Look at how confusing it is on HDMI at the moment.
Get it as right as you reasonably can first time. Then you'll last a lot longer before having to tweak it (and cause inevitable confusion).
People thought they were getting a 486-alike when the reality was was more similar to that 386SX.
I thought the 486DLC/SLC were significantly faster than the 80386DX/SX - they had a cache that the 386 was missing. But since the 80486SX was about 4x the speed (from memory) of the 80386DX, the DLC/SLC fell way short. Anyway, I think we can agree that the 386 upgrades were a bit pish.
A mate of mine had a 486DLC/25 and it was a bit cack! :)
The 486 DX was great, it was the SX that was shit.
The SX was just the DX without the floating-point unit. Most software didn't use it at the time, so most people would never have noticed the difference.
I'll accept that the initial SXs were just DXs that had failed the FPU tests - that doesn't inspire confidence in their longevity. Then they started disabling the FPU in DXs and selling them cheaper, but finally they had a die with on FPU for the SX chips.
Wasn't an awful idea.
Maybe you're thinking of the 386DX vs 386SX, where the DX had a 32-bit external bus and the SX was only 16-bits so it took two turns to load a word. Again, though, most software was 16-bit DOS at the time. Would that have been a worry? (I honestly don't know if it would have slowed down 16-bit code signiifcantly.) When it came to the Cyrix 486DLC vs SLC, though, there was a noticeable difference.
Got myself a couple of these instead:
They're slung behind tellies so that Kodi works. Plenty of space to hide them there and no moving parts. And plenty cheap too. No more little lightning bolt in the corner from using wall sockets with USB built in.
The A+ might not be a bad idea for my lad. He tools around on RiscOS with the drawing programs and BASIC. Bit more poke, no need for LAN, no need for RAM. It's an original B that's set up there just now.
"c) they have a range of >400 miles in extreme weather conditions with the air conditioning or heating on."
D) they can tow a caravan a decent distance.
Bob, John - these are (once again) fringe cases.
For every driver that does these things, I could show you 50 that never does and never has. Maybe an electric car could never be practical for you, because maybe you're on one end or the other of the bell curve. But for the vast majority of people, there's an electric car being manufactured today that would be practical for them at the right price. With one caveat - can they charge it at home?
I was in Sidcup earlier in the year (commuter town on the edge of London, for those who don't know), and the cars were parked all along the pavement (sidewalk). Most houses didn't appear to have a driveway. That's an issue if you need to charge an electric car. If they can charge it at work / at the station / at the shops then that problem is greatly diminished, but it's still the biggest negative that I've seen for the vastly overwhelming majority of people in this country.
You're right. That's that out of the way! :)
What Tesla has done, though, is make electric cars acceptable. Every time the established manufacturers have tried to make one they've been unmitigated shit (G-Wiz). Or they've been leased and then snatched back when everyone liked them (EV-1).
The customers didn't want electric cars because the manufacturers said they couldn't be cool.
"Hold my beer" - Tesla Roadster
The customers didn't want electric cars because the manufacturers said they couldn't be comfy.
"Hold my beer" - Tesla Model S
The customers didn't want electric cars because the manufacturers said they couldn't have a long range.
"Hold my <burp> beer" - 400 miles
The customers didn't want electric cars because the manufacturers said they couldn't be fast.
"Hold my bu... Hang on - Beer. Yeah." - Ludicrous Speed
Sure, some of these are trinkets, but it's attacking peoples' concerns head-on. Model X is a bit of a pig, in my opinion, and they overcomplicated the doors. That said, the pop-out door handles on the S were done better by Aston Martin - just a pivot. But beyond that, Tesla have shown that an electric car *can* be as good as a petrol car.
Sure there are fringe cases where people need to cover 800 miles a day. There are people who work away from roads, away from charging points, and who really need a Land Rover to get around. But the thing that Tesla have done is show that these are the edges of the bell-curve now.
They've burned through a lot of money doing it, and I don't know if that's sustainable, but at the very least they've given the existing car manufacturers a big wake-up. Now there are electric cars parked in my street. Without Tesla I sincerely doubt I'd see that. I wish them luck. But I still wouldn't want to trust their Autopilot to drive me around.
I don't know for sure, but expect, that there was some way to transform the key and see if it belonged to the group of allowable keys for that product.
Back in the day it used to be a 3-digit country code followed by 7 digits which just had to add up to a multiple of 7. 040 was the UK country code.
My understanding is that a shop in Edinburgh got hauled through the courts by Microsoft for selling hooky Windows on their machines. Turns out they were including valid licenses, but just entering 1111111 (or something) during installation. Still had to pay a fine for license violation.
Ah - them were the days... Then Windows 2000 came along with proper keys.
no machine-level instructions to add a constant to a location
Strangely enough, ARM assembly can be a bit weird when working with constants. Because it's a 32-bit instruction (including operands), the first few bits are the instruction, then a flag on whether to set status registers, then 4 bits for a register (at least), and then you end up with something like an 8-bit value and a rotation factor.
So you can specify 255. You can shift that by (say) 8 bits and have 65280. But you can't have 65281 because the "active" bits are more than 8 wide. At that point you have to load it from a memory location, or load 65280 and add 1, or any number of kludges.
It's been a little while, so I'm a bit hazy on all this nowadays, but that confused the hell out of me until I dug into the reasons behind it.
do you put the beans in the roll
You use espresso in the dough instead of water. Yeast only takes 30 seconds then.
Also, thanks to whomever for the downvotes for me bitching about my fortnight. That fixed everything right up, so piss off, and I hope you get the same torrent of shit I've had to deal with. Chin-chin!
Thank fuck it's Friday. It's been a shit of a week. It's been a shit of a fortnight. And next week I need to start shouting down suppliers who clearly aren't as effective as Ben because they just like to make excuses when they fuck us up.
Coffee and bacon roll just now. Beer and curry later, dammit!
I'd like to claim child support for my brood of spirit-children. Yes, they're right in front of you. No, you might not be able to see them, but they're totally there and need money for shoes and lunches.
We'll not be buying the school photo this year. They always turn out crap.
(No, I don't know if it's the DHSS any more - I tend to deal with the rather more expensive (to me) end of the Treasury...)
Well, my! I had no idea.
Still, restarting the motor would need some kind of ignition mechanism (as would second and third stages), or mixing hypergolic powders in the chamber, which pretty-much torpedoes the "simple" aspect of solids...
Best left to people who know what they're doing, or have enough space to blow thing up in...
Am I missing something or are solid rockets not just like fireworks? You light them, try to keep them going in the right direction, and they'll fizzle out in their own time. No throttle, no abort.
Putting three of them together seems a bit hit-and-hope for putting something into a planned orbit, no? Still, I am not a rocket scientist / engineer...
