Re: All Pi's need USB3!
I would settle for USB with Multi-TT. I'm using one Pi in a rather unorthodox location and have 17 USB devices connected externally (including the hubs). No-one should have to go through what I did to get that working.

Wrong! 8oz is clearly 236.588ml. Or is that 248.828gm - we are talking about troy ounces, right?
Panel four is sadly missing, but it shows most of the radioactive debris landing on Itsu Sushi in Mayfair.
Downvoters might want to google "Richard Pearse" for some context first.
I would also highly recommend against (in the days before package management) upgrading system libraries by hand - specifically, upgrading the dynamic loader library. The number of dynamically linked executables on a Linux system is quite high and, unfortunately, includes the "mv" command. Best laid plans and all that.
The vast majority of coders struggle to get application software working in multiple threads at all, the rest of us make do with abandoning any sort of codepath or timing predictability, and yet these clowns manage to make it so predictable they can use if for a timing attack? Enough. I cannot take any more clever. I have reached my peak, I am tapped out. No more I say.
I love this misconception. Attention Black Women! Do YOU have an issue recognising yourself? Are you struggling with the mirror in the morning, or perpetually forgetting your own name? We have the solution: a Ph.D course in developing facial recognition software. Because no-one else will do it for you.
Have an uptick for original research
Not just his dear old ma - don't forget his kids, which he doesn't forgive or forget being separated from for all this time, apparently. Although I'm still not entirely clear who he's not forgiving
Also massive props to Mr Malik for handling this the right way. Well played sir, well played.
There's a London mum who has found ten surprising reasons why that is not the case.
Anyone extradited on a EAW cannot be further extradited without the permission of the original country. So had he gone to Sweden, Sweden and the UK would have had to grant permission.
Source: well, it was a while back but it was someone with an actual legal background who was commenting authoritatively on the case, rather than some random internet bloke. Like myself, in fact.
I remember when Slashdot was a good site, but it's been a long time. Last time I checked it was still all Russian trolls and "What's the best Linux GUI for making webpages" on Ask Slashdot.
What exactly is your purpose here? You've achieved a gold badge for venting spleen, apparently, because I can't find anything in your comment history other than invective and absurd generalisations.
If you haven't got anything interesting to say, don't say anything at all.
veti is absolutely correct, I have had legal advice to this effect. Google "Godfrey v Demon" for relevant UK case law.
Ah, you mock but those technologies have replaced thousands of lines of brittle, home grown code - now it's a simple task of maintaining a few hundred configuration files in XML, YAML, JSON and M4. Much easier! Now, if you don't mind I'll continue searching NPM for a library that can tell me the length of a String.
Well, he's certainly gone from left wing to defence, and after a number of spectacular own goals he's risking being permanently sidelined. From there who knows? There's always orange boy, although to date Trump hasn't shown much interest.
Personally I leave all the brackets out of my equations, as by this metric it makes them more likely to be correct.
Replaced Nazi with black or jew in the original article and see if you can figure it out yourself.
I would argue there was a very strong political slant that suddenly disappeared when Lewis left. I liked his writing on some topics, but he let dogma get in the way of science on his environmental stuff.
Anyone else remember the absurd column on climate change he (presumably) approved from some random clown who worked in IT from memory, and had no experience in the field whatsoever? I remember commenting on it but have been trawling through the last ten years and can't find it, so maybe it's been pulled. The site was turning into a joke for a while.
# grep -q pcid /proc/cpuinfo && echo ok
Looking good here, so I'll be sitting tight for the next kernel. This is on a Xeon E2560 but from Intels site, should apply to anyone with an Xeon E3 or later (launched 2011). Would it be a fair guess that anyone doing serious crunching is going to be doing it with a Xeon? I think I'm right that the Core series is limited to a single CPU per motherboard?
Based on the comments here, it's the same for Mint.
Hint for above poster: DistroWatch users are a self-selecting subset of Linux users primarily interested in which distro they're using. Everyone else just wants something that works reasonably well and doesn't feel the need to bang on about it.
You could make that same argument about guns - guns are safe in the hands of sensible people, the law won't stop criminals one bit etc. etc - this is basically the NRA playbook.
Except that, in the real world, guns kill a lot of people in the US where this line of reasoning is accepted, and not many in the UK where it is not and guns are essentially banned. At the very least this implies that it's not quite as simple as you make out, and - again, following the gun analogy - it there is to be a register or restrictions on sale and use, it should be done early before the horse has bolted.
Isn't making it go mainstream before this date kind of a bad thing?
I'm pretty sure that's how journalism works.
Biting the hand that feeds IT. It's even on the masthead.
Good lord, but he's right. The US is our major trade partner! Our nearest land mass! Our special relationship!
Oh, what a thing it is to be an island with no nearby continent to communicate or trade with, forced to send our exports across 3000 miles of unforgiving ocean and forever at the mercy of the Russians snipping the phone line.
If only there was somewhere else to turn, perhaps a continent of half a billion like minded souls some 20 miles away. We can but dream of such a world.
Techies are well aware that artificial intelligence is not intelligence, but it's still the blanket term that's used for this range of technology. Like the use of "hacker" for "cracker", your argument was lost a long time ago. See also "decimate", "tea" instead of infusion, the list goes on.
And your point is what, exactly? That we should hold Wikipedia to a lower standard because many of the pages are wrong?
No argument from me, but the point of the article is its founder is giving a lecture on "fake news". So it's ironic, innit.
Freeloader? Hardly. The government is doing what it's supposed to do, using policy and tax revenue to gradually change behaviour of for the betterment(*) of society. See also: tax on cigareets, disability benefits, that sort of thing
(*) if there's an argument to be made, this is the point you would make it on.
Didn't know about "who is god" - nice.
"aptitude -v moo" (with multiple levels of v) still works too, as does "apt moo".
Turns out to be 98% gristle
West Midlands is the middle west, not middle east. Middle eastern would be Cambridgeshire. Do keep up.
BadUSB (and by extension, the hypothetical rooted android device) both create a dodgy USB device which interacts with the OS to do bad things. I know about that (I've built quite a few USB devices myself). They don't "attack the baseline controller", but act as a keyboard, disk - all normal devices that the OS would expect to see, but programmed in a way to attack the target computer by sending malicious keystrokes etc.
But this hack requires the USB device to interact with the Intel lights-out chip, not the OS. That was the point I was making: while the OS is running, the OS is in control of all USB communications and would (I believe) have to explicitly allow the device to communicate with the lights out chip. This is because USB is a single-master design, so you cannot have two USB controllers acting on the bus at the same time.
USB devices report themselves by vendor and product ID, so it's possible that the Intel management chip would intercept any USB devices of a certain type (the described JTAG-to-USB device) and not report them to the OS. Then, this attack would work against a running computer. But that's not what was reported.
Yeah. I'm just wondering that myself. If you have USB access you can probably also reach the power button, in which case - short of full disk encryption - you're pwned anyway.
Not sure I buy the hacking model of distributing USB disks with rootkits on them - yes, I've seen Mr Robot - I know that it's possible, but it's a bit specialised and doesn't scale well. Plus, I presume the stick has to be in the drive when the machine boots, no? It's not like if you plug in a USB stick claiming to be a JTAG interface it will somehow magically bypass the OS USB stack and go straight to the lights-out chip. That might fly with firewire but USB has only a single master.
In short, nice hack and Intel deserve a kick up the arse, but I don't see this being a major risk - unless it works without booting the machine, and with the software-simulated USB over XHCI as someone posited above. Then we're all fucked.
Essentially this is the plot of Calgary, a fine film with Brendan and Domhall Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd, Aiden Gillen amongst others. Not bashing bishops, I hasten to add, but the erosion of respect for the catholic church in Ireland. Well worth a watch
You joke but there's probably something to this. The normal pattern for a hack this size is gloating attribution, but this one was leaked to Süddeutsche Zeitung and no hacking crew has publicly claimed responsibility.
I imagine the moment when they realised what sort of data they had (and who it was on) was a bit of an "oh, fuck" moment.
> expect The Usual Suspects to come along shortly
Well you certainly called that: Big John was the very next reply, bringing his usual but-but-benghazi dross with him, with bombastic bob to follow. All we need now is Matt Bryant for the nutjob trifecta.
"WHILE PASSING THROUGH FL180, DURING THE DESCENT FOR A LANDING AT TAMPA, FLORIDA, THE AIRCREW HEARD A LOUD BANG AND THE RADAR SYSTEM FAILED. IT WAS AN OTHERWISE NORMAL APPROACH TO LANDING, IN CLEAR SKY, WITH NO TURBULENCE. THE AIRCRAFT CONTINUED TO HANDLE NORMALLY AND THE SUBSEQUENT LANDING WAS WITHOUT INCIDENT. A POST FLIGHT INSPECTION OF THE AIRCRAFT NOTED THE NOSE RADOME WAS DENTED IN AND CRACKED. IT APPEARS THE INNER PLY OF THE RADOME HAD SEPARATED FROM THE OUTER SHELL AND THIS RESULTED IN A TWO FOOT DIAMETER DELAMINATION, AND THE FRONT TIP OF THE RADOME TO CAVE IN. NO EVIDENCE WAS FOUND OF ANY BIRD OR OTHER FOREIGN OBJECT IMPACT. A REVIEW OF THE AIRCRAFT’S MAINTENANCE RECORD INDICATES THE SUBJECT RADOME WAS INSTALLED ON OCTOBER 21, 2003. FURTHERMORE, THE RECORDS DO NOT INDICATE ANY HISTORY OF RELATED PROBLEMS."
The only thing I'm not clear on is why they had to shout.
Good morning, that's a nice Blockchain.
You're in a hole Charles, for the love of god stop digging.
Thank you for your reply to an article on the risks to commercial aircraft from drones. It appears your point is:
[x] there is no proof it was a Drone
[x] that hitting a Drone is no worse than hitting a bird
[ ] this is just an excuse for governments to clamp down on drone use
[ ] the proposed response will only effect law-abiding drone users
[ ] blah blah freedom
[ ] some other innumerate or illogical argument.
to which I would reply
[x] your standards of proof are unreasonably high
[x] although the odds are small, the consequences of a crash are disastrous
[x] hitting a bird is not a risk-free event either
[x] just because one risk exists doesn't mean you should accept others [credit to first-page AC]
[x] this was no accident; the drone pilot deliberately acted this way.
[ ] some other piece of relatively simple deduction that appears to elude you, you wingnut
and in addition
[ ] otherwise your comment was well considered and thoughtful
[x] risk management. Try again when you understand what those words mean.
[ ] no, the moon landings weren't faked and yes, climate change is real.
[ ] with rights come responsibilities
[ ] back to school junior
[ ] I'm going to burn down your house etc.
You could not be more right.
Prince Phillip? What are you doing here?
On misunderstandings in Kibbutzim; a mate was there but his hebrew was terrible, and couldn't understand the hilarity when he asked how many carrots he should peel. Turns out the word for 'virgins" is very close to the word for carrots...
