They were right about the value of the TV rights

AI is the complete domain. It includes expert systems. Machine learning is a distinct domain (along with others like genetic algorithms) alongside expert systems.
Deep learning is a subset of machine learning.
No one disputes this to be true. If you want to learn more about the machinations that the AI community had thinking about whether an expert system could really be 'sentient' (which doesn't equal AI) - it's worth looking up the Chinese room though example.
I can't for the life of me work out what happened to the reg's journalism.
This whole article should be prefaced - this may be true in the US!
Since when did locking consumers to one provider reduce the incentives for that provider to provide a good service / invest in their network.
Surely it has the opposite effect ? If consumers are free to move around - networks will be forced to invest.
If only there was an example.
Oh yeah right there is. Many US cities only have 1 broadband provider - so it's impossible to switch. Which is why my colleagues in the Valley spend hundreds of dollars on <100mbps broadband - delivered by crap service providers - where in London I have access to at least 6 options and pay considerably less for 400mbps.
Crap journalism. Crap conclusion.
"For example, a former colleague of mine has the option of adding Ethernet adaptors to the emergency generators on his data room but has decided not to – simply so the vendor's engineers have to visit to do maintenance rather than being allowed to break and crash things from afar."
Yeah. Guy is a genius. Totally thinking he runs a comms room rather than a proper DC.
I am very surprised if your string is all in series. If it is that's your big problem.
If it's not which it almost certainly definitely isn't - just isolate each shelf and replace shelf at a time.
All you lose is some run time but no need to put into bypass.
Of course if you are relying on the register for your ppm you and your company are almost certainly screwed!
The Thames is pretty much a safe bet for building a DC next to because Thames barrier etc.
Still a waste of nice river real estate!
IBM have had their DC on the south bank for at least half a century and whilst it's pretty crap - I don't believe it's been wetted yet !
So I think what the story tries to say is that the steam produced by the humidification equipment(I guess they were using kettles but maybe some ultrasonic system) somehow produced so much steam / water that it froze and sealed up the pipe.
This makes zero sense. Firstly you do your humidification after you control your temperature.
That makes sense when you consider that what you are trying to control is rH (ie humidity relative to temperature)!
If for some bizarre reason you did your humidity control before your temp control then it still wouldn't cause a flood because you don't need a ton of steam to get +-50rH at 0C (the air inlet temperature).
In my humble opinion.. Facilities engineers blame bad design when proper maintenance / operations (eg finding the leak into the humidity control / responding to an increase in pressure alarm in the HVAC) is actually the solution.
The timing is funny as anyone flying to the US on Sunday from Heathrow would have experienced.
BA lost their link to the US DHS which means that anyone who hasn't provides their Advance Passenger Info (in advance) experienced the joy of not flying (although my plane was busy so maybe they fixed it after I checked in).
They were also struggling with the app that they use to load the planes evenly (so, you know, they don't fall out of the sky) which delayed us an hour....
Was searching through the comments to see if anyone else noticed this.
I wonder if the Reg's copy editors were drunk this afternoon or if the author is just confused.
But to echo your point. Ransomware certainly could use a zero day. And that will be a great day for us all...
My experience echos this.
I have been testing windows 10 since the first build on a particularly complicated windows 7 (originally) Sony laptop which has the joys of dual GPUs and a ton of 'Sony specific' stuff. That said I have to run allowing unsigned drivers to let me use the hacked windows 8 / Nvidia / Intel GPU drivers.
Rest of experience is fine.
To be honest I was extremely surprised about the comments re Florien Muller.
I've read his blog for several years and always found him to be pretty bang on the money. Given that he makes money from his consulting work; rather than his journalism; I would imagine that it's more important for him than most bloggers to be accurate in his analysis since that's how (and he is clear about this) he picks up his consulting jobs.
I'm also a long time register reader and haven't failed to spot that you are much more friendly when your big advertisers (Rackspace for example) have an epic fail than you are with other companies with whom you have no commercial relationship.
I've also never seen a Reg article with a 'Rackspace (or insert other advertiser name) pay my wages' disclaimer (which is always what you see with Mr Muller).
