But I know some electric cars don't have a neutral, because they have to be towed on a flatbed.
How can an electrical device function without a neutral?

(Although we are trying to figure out why the 13.1 million followers on @POTUS yesterday are now only showing 5.3 million – did millions of people unfollow in just a few hours? Seems unlikely.)
I think you're vastly underestimating Trump's hateability.
Developers who take advantage of the People API in Windows 10 get the opportunity of a huge promotional boost, as Microsoft will promote People-compatible Store apps in the contact cards themselves.
Which is only a benefit to developers who haven't got a huge customer base to begin with. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, et al. won't care about this "promotional boost" because they don't need it. In fact, So why should they invest in using People API?
And without the big guys on board, people won't find People useful enough to use it.
It's the same issue that killed People last time, and Microsoft doesn't appear to have solved it.
Estimated? What about time served?
Estimated prior work experience -- not everyone's past work history is readily available.
Let's says I have two employee's and one consistently works late, does extra work and goes above and beyond what is asked or I have one that is technically more proficient at the task at hand. Does anyone think they would stay on the same pay for long even though they have technically the same job?
Are you suggesting that white male workers consistently go above and beyond what minorities and women do? That's implicit in your "hypothetical" scenario here. Assuming that is racist and sexist, and proving that is incredibly difficult.
Who does this benefit? Would an employer not look at this and think I'll just employ less minorities because then I am less likely to be sued?
Why would an employer look at this and think anything other than "if my hiring and salary determination processes are based on anything other than a deterministic equation based on measurable factors directly related to the employee's effectiveness at the job, then I'm in danger of being sued."
Because that's all this means. And ironically, that's the best way of running a business anyway.
So according to their own admission, they were infected not because their software was vulnerable, but because their staff was negligent. Or do they not know what the vector for Trojan malware is?
The E in DoE includes nuclear energy. Additionally, the power grid will be one of the primary targets of any significant attack on a developed nation.
"Amazon are almost entirely faultless in this, AFAICS"
No. Aside from the issues brought up by others, Amazon is allowing a seller to list in their marketplace but then redirect buyers to a purchase page outside of their marketplace.
That is just plain stupid, if not actually malicious.
In my days as an application programmer about 80% of the code was involved in checking inputs (even when those inputs were output from other programs that did their own input checking...).
These days input checking for me is limited to handling when the data in files to import do not match the specification created by the same exact people who create the data files. It's still well over half of what I have to do.
Correction. That is the report of what has so far been made public.
Intelligence is rarely made available wholesale to the general public as it tends to reveal how much we know and how we know it.
The President has been and Congress will be hearing a great deal more than anything you'll find on the interwebs.
The funds will be used by the South Carolina Attorney General's office's human trafficking task force to try to rescue victims of the trade.
The funds will be "earmarked" for the South Carolina Attorney General's office's human trafficking task force but will actually be piddled away by politicians and bureaucrats on pet projects which ultimately help nobody.
The memo reads something like "Stop fucking us over, and passing shite laws like an incontinent anus, stop dipping your filthy grasping paws in the till, and just do the basic job to a minimum standard of competence".
If that's the way it's supposed to be read, why is it always written as a vote for the most boneheadedly stupid option available?
Back in the early 80s when I was an academic computer scientist the head of department's secretary could debug Algol 68 programs.
Just her head? What was the rest of her doing?
That's, like $1,000 per Yahoo! mail user!
Come in, HP, boy, have a cigar...
This is a cut down SQL Server version for development environments and limited use cases.
No, it's not. This is full Enterprise SQL Server. At SQL Pass, they were even showcasing Availability Groups and clustering (using a Linux clustering engine), and talking about their work on Full-Text Search. The only reason these and other features aren't yet available in the preview is that they haven't gotten the SQLPAL and SQLOS layers for them stable enough to showcase.
This is Microsoft's Data Group recognizing 3 things:
1. A lot of Oracle runs on Linux and if they want to cut into that market further, they need to support the OS their potential customers are used to.
2. A lot of development is moving towards containers, so they need a database engine which works well with those containers, including Linux ones.
3. Only about half of developers develop on Windows; the other half are split between MacOS and Linux. If they want those developers writing for SQL Server, they need to make it accessible to them.
And its amaaaaaazing that every single piece of video I have seen about wonky machines were a vor Trump being recorded as a vote the Hildebeastand machines were started up with votes already recorded for the Dems.
No, it's not amazing. You're selecting evidence which matches your preconceived notions. That's human nature, and the nature of the internet actually enforces that behavior.
"Some academic" who just happens to be a Democrat.
Do you have a source for that? None of the articles I've seen on this identify Halderman's political affiliation.
Re-read the article, particularly where it says:
"I believe the most likely explanation is that the polls were systematically wrong, rather than that the election was hacked. But I don’t believe that either one of these seemingly unlikely explanations is overwhelmingly more likely than the other," Halderman writes.
In short, this isn't a partisan academic claiming that vote fraud happened, or that it's even likely. He's simply saying it's one possible explanation for the swing in those close states -- and if it happened anywhere, those states would be the places to look for it.
The rest is just El Reg being true to form, and oversensationalizing a story with little sensation in it.
A lot of Oracle runs on Linux.
Microsoft has an application to convert an Oracle database to a SQL Server database.
They don't have an application to convert a Linux admin to a Windows admin.
It'll take more than two months. With a Name Like Hussain, there's no way our President after that will let him into this country.
That's because people are generally upset by things that aren't true.
Nice one. Of course, El Reg would never actually ████████████████ your post like that...
Ok, I agree with him in principle, but this:
"You can take an Internet Protocol (IP) packet and encapsulate it in an IP header. There are four options just for that: IPv4 in IPv4, IPv4 in IPv6, IPv6 in IPv4, and IPv6 in IPv6. Given all those options, it's hard to get one of them implemented and deployed everywhere."
is wrong on several counts.
First off, IPv4 and IPv6 are not different standards; they are different versions (editions if you will) of the IP standard.
Second, these four options are just the Cartesian product of the two versions. Want to make any list exponentially larger? Throw in a Cartesian product.
Third, each of these four options have clear uses, as defined by the capabilities of the host network and the desired capabilities of the virtual network.
There are a lot of unnecessary duplicate or overlapping standards out there. But the options for encapsulation of IP traffic over different versions of the standard don't deserve to be lumped in with them.
How bad is your music if it sounds good on a pint-sized monaural coaxial speaker?
How bad is your music if it requires a large complex multichannel sound system in order to sound good?
Good music sounds good on all but the very shittiest of sound systems. Yes, it can sound better on better systems But only truly horrible music requires anything more than an OK speaker.
Great music can even sound good on one of these:
Recognized but couldn't place it*. Had to resort to searching. First result started with the following excerpt:

Your comment was result #4.
Have you been manipulating Google search results again?

Make no mistake - these things are the PC / phone / tablet replacement for the non-geek person.
That's what they said about the Mac -- then the PDA -- then the netbook -- then the smartphone -- then the tablet.
The truth is that people are much more complex than "geek" and "non-geek". This is why all of these devices (yes, even the humble PDA) still exist and are still in use.
In fact any time you find yourself thinking of people in two categories, just fuck right off.

Are you complaining about the imagined violence or the lack of real violence?
PS This is not limited to progressives. Even conservative candidates are indulging in this. If you think DerekCurrie has a mental disorder, you must believe Trump is batshit insane, given the frequency with which he expresses the desire for violence against Hillary, other women, men, etc. ad nauseam.
"3) How are the accusations against Bill Clinton around sexual misbhaviour relevant to email retention?"
it's the COVERUP part that's important. Mrs. Clinton has a history of coverups. It seems to extend throughout her entire career.
Oh, of course. If there's not enough evidence, there must be a cover-up (that's how you write it, by the way.) It can't be that the evidence simply doesn't exist because your batshit insane conspiracy theory isn't true...
"4) You should really provide a link to this supposed 'lost evidence' "
Really? You link to Sean Hannity's website as your source for truth? I rest my case.
's 5 better than the Type 26, innit?
Apple software has no bugs; you must be using it wrong.
"What is the point of putting your stuff on VMs and then running them from one bunch of hardware? "
Not having to buy many bunches of hardware, each specced out to peak usage and hence idle 99% of the time.
You are absolutely correct that virtualization allows for the recovery options you mentioned.
However, you completely ignore the fact that virtualization was originally and still is most often sold not as a recovery solution but as a cost-cutting solution.
For public entities required to jump through hoops for every penny spent, and then still criticized by moronic taxpayers for any expense with more than three digits to the left of the decimal, no matter how well-spent,the natural tendency is to cut costs rather than to optimize. The net result is what you see here.
"...with potential extradition to America..."
You're pandering to that tired old line? Is El Reg that desperate for readers?
This doesn't solve hash collisions. You can't solve hash collisions.
No matter how you do it, mapping data of size > n into a space = n creates collisions.
This paper just illustrates that quantum computing doesn't completely obsolete current hash functions.
This is all reasonably interesting, but indicates just how far down the wrong road they're going.
True AI isn't about giving the right answers, but about being able to ask the right questions.
Let me know when they get that far.
Also: English, Asian, African ? :) One of these things is not like the other two.
Ah, good catch. Should be " Anglish, Asian, African ".

"Now I have got my cloud services outside of the perimeter and that network-based perimeter is no longer effective,"
So a Microsoftie is admitting that putting your stuff in the cloud is bad for security?
It is illegal for this one individual due to an order from a previous court martial for making an indecent photograph of a child.
This is from paragraphs 3 and 4 of the article. How much of it did you even read?
Take your pills, dear.
Shut it, expert.
That's the most concise summary of the Brexitter/Trumper mentality I've seen so far!
As long as it's a finite improbability, and he's got the kettle on...
I'm all for massive ambitions, and this programme will generate technological and possibly scientific progress, but sending people to die on this ocean voyage will be a huge turn-off for the general population, even if the pioneers are well-informed volunteers.
'A failed hard disk in its Storage Access Network caused a “panic event” '
A failed hard disk? as in ONE?
If you're using a sub 10" screen to watch video... then it really doesn't matter one iota if it's served up in 480p or 1920p, because the human eyes ability to accurately distinguish between the two is severely diminished at that scale.
What matters more is the DPI than the screen res.
Neither of those two statements is true.
To take the second one first, what matters is DPA (dots per arcsecond [of vision]). That changes with the distance of the screen from the eye. This is why "jumbotron" type screens at sporting arenas and advertising venues can use individual light bulbs (as low as 0.5 DPI depending on the specific type of bulb) and still create high resolution images -- the screens are far enough away that each light bulb occupies ~50-100as of vision.
Now to the first: my 5" phone, when held about 1-1.5 feet from my eyes, occupies about the same space as my 50" televison across the room (and about 1/2 the width/height of my laptop screen 2.5 -3 feet away.) I can clearly make out the pixels on any of those screens at a 480p resolution at those distances. I can even make out the pixels at 720p. At 1080p, the pixels are hard to see, though still visible on my laptop (the largest in terms of arcseconds at the distance I keep it.)
Until some enterprising MP comes up with a Bre-entry* strategy?
* Copyright, trademark, etc.
Not at all.
The technology is actually falling further and further behind what users actually want.
What users actually want is someone to help them.
Unfortunately that costs money, and that's not what shareholders and CEOs want.
NRDC:"We found these specific issues with specific televisions."
CTA: "Stop fighting a war or television with your lies!"
One of these two is a constructive statement.
The USG is hardly perfect, but it can usually be relied upon to do bugger all when bugger all is exactly what is required.
It's the "usually" part of that which scares me. "Usually" by definition includes "sometimes not." The current volume (and volume) of technologically illiterate, theocratically tyrannical, and scientifically ignorant politicians in the US is high enough that I don't feel comfortable leaving this in the hands of my government.
As I've expressed before, clerical functions are some of the most thankless chores to have.
I think you'll find it hasn't been handed to some other body because nobody else wants it.
