Requiring the password be entered again during the upgrade process means that you can't do remote (unattended) upgrades, which is kinda important for companies managing tens of thousands of Windows desktops.
This seems appropriate: Self-Driving Trucks Are Going to Hit Us Like a Human-Driven Truck.
> It's a laptop with ONE DRIVE BAY.
Are you sure it has a drive BAY at all? My Acer ultrabook (granted, it's from 2013 or so) has a 128GB SSD in it. Except it doesn't; it has 2x 64GB SSDs in it. I assume they're soldered onto the motherboard somehow.
With RAID enabled in the BIOS, Windows casually treats it as a single volume and you'd never know. To use Linux on it, you need to enable AHCI (which it *does* allow, unlike -- allegedly -- these Lenovo machines), at which point you need to monkey around with software RAID to get back to a single volume.
Looking at Streetview, the rock does appear to be smack-dab in the middle of the junction, and isn't particularly visible (grey rock on grey background). There's not even a kerb around it.
Surround it with a traffic island, with the usual high-visibility signage. Job done.
That's the best kind of evil: plausible deniability.
Back in the early days of space flight, the Soviets did not have large expanses of warm water available to them, where there is no fear of 'enemies'. Unlike the US with large coastlines on the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
As the saying (originally about the F-4 Phantom, I believe) goes, "with enough thrust, you can get a brick to fly".
And he doesn't think that a whole new world of bureaucracy won't spontaneously appear to manage drone procurement? Hmmm.
If the privacy agreement said that this data would be shared with a specific, named, third party, and only that third party, only for the purposes of voice recognition, and would not be stored at all once the recognition was done, there would probably be less uproar -- tinfoil hat brigade excepted.
It's the "we're listening to your living room, and who knows who we're giving that data to, because we certainly don't" clause that's really bothersome.
VM migration isn't quite as transparent as it could be, which means that AWS / Rackspace customers still have to plan for potential downtime.
Moreover, you need a sufficient number of patched hosts, otherwise have to move VMs from host 'A' to vulnerable host 'B' before you can patch 'A'. Then you have to move the VMs from 'B' back to 'A'. This results in annoyed customers, because their machines were moved twice, rather than once.
And now you have to do all of this within an announced and (hopefully) short maintenance window, so that your customers can make sure all of their devops guys are on deck for it.
The AWS fix for this was spread out over several days, with several multi-hour maintenance windows. It didn't impact us greatly, but it could have been a lot worse. For some customers, it might well have been.
Dropbox does keep previous versions -- right click on the filename in the web browser.
Volume of water is measured in gallons or liters (since this is in Idaho) or m^3. Acre-feet is like me measuring the area of my back garden in furlong-inches.
Great, so it'll be like a Windows PC (e.g. from Sony) where there's a whole heap of sh*t (usually 30-day trial versions) pre-installed that you don't want, and that's really hard to get rid of, just because Orange gets a back-hander from the vendor.
It was renamed Myanmar by the military dictatorship, and the UK doesn't recognise the change:
Charles has it about right. Tall buildings these days have express lifts that go to every tenth floor with slower lifts serving the floors in between.
It's not just for speed; it also uses less space in the core of the building. See Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_lobby.
If I never see another naff, custom-designed, skinned fan/temperature monitor, it'll be too soon.
Asus does it; Motherboard Monitor (MBM5) does it. They all look like sh*t, and usually don't work with a limited account (LUA).
I think that Microsoft should force hardware vendors to make this information available as standard Windows performance counters, which means that I can use standard tools to monitor them.
Maybe make this a logo requirement?
