Memory leakage has never been a problem for C++ programmers unless they use continue to write C in C++.
Wileyfox Swift and Storm (100/170GBP) both get cyanogenmod nightly updates including security. Having been used one then the other for around 9 months. Works well, moved on to Marshmallow whereas phone as sold is still on Lollipop.
UK is a considerable net importer of goods and services from Europe. They have more to lose than us. Negotiations will be tedious but no reason why they should fail.
"Btrfs is *not* a stable filesystem & shouldn't be used for critical data."
Spouting nonsense I guess. You are way out of date. It is the DEFAULT fs on SUSE and well supported on Debian/Ubuntu just for the lulz?
zfs isnt as flexible as btrfs IMO eg Cant remove physical extents and rebalance. btrfs is the default fs in suse. and apt-get automatically snapshots every upgrade and you can rollback or co-exist even version upgrades although it requires command line to do so. I doubt ZFS even comes close on that score. Pretty awesome.
"Probably the best near-vanilla experience would be something like Cyanogenmod. "
wileyfox 5" comes with lollipop CYANOGENOS the oem version for 130GBP. the CYANOGENMOD official nightly builds of marshmallow are available too if you want to root or enhance privacy even more.
btrfs has been the default file system for SUSE for a few years now. Those Germans know what they are doing. I find btrfs is much more flexible than ZFS which I used to use before.
Visual Studio was indeed nice but the thought of having to go back to Windows from Linux gave me an involuntary shudder closely followed by a feeling of nausea!
I changed one user from Windows to Ubuntu experimentally and about a month later I heard that the other four users in the office were miffed they "hadn't been upgraded".
"It would be prudent to take action"
or just foolish to allocate resources to some stupid mass hysteria. what about putting the same resources into getting to Mars for example. climate obsession might be just navel gazing.
that thought always makes me chuckle ^_^
I guess he is really trying to stiffen the moral of the more hard-line mandarins and provide some cover against their more moderate colleagues. The way he sees it, any reason, however implausible, for the mentality of mass spying is becoming a dire necessity, but I think they are trying to hide behind their fingers.
"Anyone know why Server 2003 is included, but not the more recent releases? Do they masquerade as a desktop OS, or is the data so limited, that one hobbyist has entered the stats on his own?"
because IE's "user agent" string identifies itself as running on 2003 but running on server 2008 and Vista cannot be distinguished ... so the Vista numbers will be including Server 2008.
I guess the vertical axis is labelled wrong. It should be market share FRACTION, not percentage
... and he is us."
and I mean we need to view ourselves, as admins, as the true enemy, somewhat like Apple purportedly protects its users from itself or the idea of "who will protect us from the protectors?" so to speak.
"What I need is to maintain two (useful) data connections - so I need is a phone with *TWO* UMTS capable MODEMs." What is the value in that? Like dual network adapters with load balancing or routed? Or choose one over the other at any one time?
a nice round up of his monthly observations and activities. good that he has some money behind him ... gives him independence to speak his mind.
love the dutch in all their forms and always reminded of "There are two things, I can't stand .. cultural intolerance ... and the DUTCH!"
""You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.""
"BUT IT MAY HARM YOUR DEFENCE"
this was added about 10 years ago I believe
Everybody is willingly carrying around a personalised bug now. Public sector type's wet dream. Now they want to use the bugs legally of course. It was courageous to demand free speech in the past since it could be used for evil purposes that we . Likewise I perhaps we have to be courageous enough to grant evil paedo-terrorists privacy although it seems nuts. I despite your ideas but will defend your right to speak them ... could become I despise your ideas and actions but I will defend your privacy to the death.
It installs a dummy VPN disabling any existing running VPN, so no use to many.
Good privacy guards provide faked contacts, faked imei etc so no problem.
BBC supposedly likes diversity ... except when it comes its own views which are relentlessly monotonic. Ironic.
upvote for off beat "Gor books of John Norman" reference
Can someone please do for cute robots what Clown and other horror movies have done for clowns? Half the population under 30 involuntarily convulses when they see one now.
I guess hybridisation is just part of the on going BBC "multi-culti" message. The other day there was a program predicting olive skinned farmers on nuclear powered tractors in Scotland in 300 years. Is it just my biases or BBC's that I am noticing all the time. On another note, isnt it funny how an organisation supposedly wedded to diversity believes that its dominance in media is a Good Thing.
Reminds me of a John Le Carre character's observation, Smiley I think, about the capacity of violent minds for menial work.
they are getting paid for the advertising therefore I can see legal minds placing liability on the hosting web site. I can also envisage that disclaimers might be held invalid and web site owners having to insure themselves against liability
not pc I agree. but which party is which, I leave up to you
I suppose you think "nothing to hide nothing to fear as well". changes everything. imagine market researchers standing on every street corner taking notes of EVERYTHING. creepy. but this is what goes on in the web.
sure it wasnt 65535?
See new google MICRO MOMENTS
"No joins in NOSQL" ... Come back PICK OS ... all is forgiven! ... 40 years ahead of its time.
so basically it is either NOT DUAL SIM or NO SD card. I bet few people will want that.
... nowhere to be found
1. "... BTRFS tend to take up to take huge gobs of RAM to run properly ... "
2. "... Right now the plan seems to be for BTRFS to replace Ext4."
something contradictory in these statements. I think 1 is false
I always assumed that you can probably already be identified with 99% certainty from your browser characteristics and ip number so cookies are not required really anymore. they are just the sugar on the cake if you allow them.
the only safety I can think of is for your browser to automatically retrieve all links from whatever you browser to confuse the trackers
can you believe that their PR department didnt have contingency plans for exactly this type of article and Bezos memo wasnt drafted well in advance? no? me neither
"and the draw is only valid if it is statistically random." ... so if the draw came up 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 ... they would discard it as not being random?
Guardian and Independent. Both left or liberal in the pejorative sense. Both hate money and economic success.
The authors real knowledge of Dubai seems based on the few nasty articles about it in the West over the past few years, couched in the language of propaganda and probably motivated by people who hate or cant understand the idea of any Arabs ever doing any good. Dubai is an oasis of tolerance compared to the majority of the Arab world. London and New York would have been money grubbing and born out of cheap labour so the hypocrisy is rank.
otherwise why would they be paid?
If the US admin's finest legal mind tells Google that they are barking up the wrong tree and there is a better tree to bark up, then why dont they do so? and why didnt they do so in the first place?
If you want to summarise Lab and the Cons use my phrase "Daddy makes it and Mummy spends it". I leave you to work out who is who.
The point of this article is that large iphones are removing the need for ipad for many people. I use my large phone and no pad and many of my friends are starting to do the same despite the initial mockery. Apple are doing well in the large phone category but by copying Samsung who we have to thank for their vision in providing the large phone format NOT APPLE. Long may Apple to continue their success but they are riding more on goodwill at the moment. iWatch vanity project for example.
"Any new feature should be put in libraries". Like any developer you long for simplicity ... but you seem to forget the famous saying that everything should be as simple as possible BUT NO SIMPLER. There are relatively few C++ programmers so the average comment here is from programmers who dont use and dont really understand C++ and instead conceitedly grandstand their ignorance to mostly more of the same. bleh!
