Like blood groups, O-holes and A-holes
Haha, you can read the panic in every utterance as their meal-ticket evaporates.

“By realizing only 10 per cent of the total number of reactions, we can predict the outcomes of the remaining 90 per cent without needing to carry out the experiments,” the paper said.
That sounds like a great way to never find any new type of reaction or interesting compounds.
Over-confidence and smugness built into the AI.
That Intel and AMD chips and even the vastly dissimilar ARM chips have the same sort of flaw due to similar crappy implementation of the branch-prediction etc.
It's almost like people moved between companies and took their knowledge with them.
Or maybe their engineers all learnt from the same masters. It'd be sort of funny if the root cause was really some class at MIT or elsewhere.
Well well, it seems all the major CPU manufacturers have included 'Management Engines' in their CPUs for 'Administrative Funcions' (as in "the NSA, GCHQ et al want admin' rights on everybody's computer").
Then it turns out that these back-doors introduce insecurities (as always).
The kow-towing pricks deserve every drop of shit that rains on them from a great height.
When a drone is flying it is more or less weightless so "Registration is required for small Unmanned Aircraft weighing more than 0.55 pounds..." https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/aircraft_certification/aircraft_registry/UA/ doesn't apply.
Some people really need to learn the difference between mass and weight.
Just as the UK starts getting serious about customers getting what they pay for -
- nbn sees which way the wind will soon be blowing down-under and panics about their craptacular performance and the prospect of customer lawsuits.
The ACCC should take a tip from Microsoft and require ISP-supplied modems to be instrumented to the eyeballs to see what actual speeds users get when they use their modems.
It could even aggregate the 'scores' and return a QOS figure to be used to adjust the ISP's billing downwards when they don't meet spec'.
That would get their attention real quick!
People who pick their own IT kit always get told their kit isn't supported anyway, so no loss to them.
"This paper was also just really, really, really short on details that a radio astronomer would want, to the point where it likely wouldn't have passed a referee at a regular journal," said Yvette Cendes, a skeptical radio astronomer at the University of Toronto.
It would be really nice to think that the persons who SHOULD be the experts were right, but how many times has science been held back by group-think among the 'experts' until their noses were rubbed in the clear and definite truth?
'Pad', 'Pack', same difference and a data length or end marker is used in some compression systems.
Zip and 7z were just used for reference you could consider the old disk-compression systems which do output files obviously padded to the end of the last sector.
Obviously the size of the resulting hash might make it impractical, but my point is that I think that the best theoretically possible achievable lossless compression must be the minimum size possible for a guaranteed collision-free hash.
Also, the bigger the file the bigger the hash, which might disqualify it if only considering fixed-size hashes.
I know what you mean but I'm wondering if there is an exception.
Consider if you used ZIP or 7z as the hash algorithm.
You end up with less bits (which you can pack to a fixed size) but there is only one possibility for the source file.
You can even verify that by unpacking and comparing, which makes it a bit useless unless you can lock it down from tampering somehow, say with a hash function... ;-)
Thanks for your post with a link in it Red Bren. I used view-source and had a practice on an old forum post
I tested with - <_a _ _h_r_e_f_=_"_h_t_t_p_s_:_/_/_c_9_._i_o_/_"_>_C_l_o_u_d_ _9_<_/_a_>
take out the '_' characters
I thought that there was some substitution of '[' and ']' for '<' and '>' but that may have been some other forum.
'The Moon' IS a planet not 'A Moon'.
If the Earth was to vanish it's orbit would continue pretty much unchanged.
Also, It's long past bloody time that El Reg made it easy to include hyperlinks, or at least made the information on how to embed them clear, complete and easy to find.
I think I found a reference once, but it assumed html expertise. Is a button that hard to implement?
"Light Water Reactors produce what is known as reactor grade plutonium. It is utterly useless for nuclear weapons and nobody has ever used reactor grade plutonium in a weapon."
Then they won't be building just Light Water Reactors, will they? Simples!
I expect there will be suitable reactors in among the power reactors, probably on the same sites.
Early refuelling of LWRs is a less convenient but possible option, so Weapons-Grade Plutonium CAN be produced by Light Water Reactors.
I expect to see a lot more reduction of renewables and it's Donald Trump's fault (I'm going for the popular vote).
Now that they have had a wake-up call that they can't rely on the US to keep us safe in Asia, they are probably drawing up plans for a bunch of Australian-owned and operated nuclear power stations to make plutonium (as a 'by-product', honest) to start building a decent arsenal.
Actually I mean the overall speed to the source.
Obviously some servers just aren't too fast but a lot of slowdown is due to crappy low bandwidth links being used on the principle that not everybody uses them at the same time.
Unfortunately, greed for profit sees this taken way too far resulting in rubbish performance for far too much of the day.
'Provisioning' they call it, I'd like to put their network architects and capacity planners in a room and 'provision' their air. I'm sure they don't all breathe in at the same time.
"The only thing that needs to happen is that when talking about the bandwidth we pay for, the words "up to" are replaced by law with the words "at least". When the law ensures that we all get what we pay for then Telco's will finally put in place an infrastructure that can actually deliver it."
