Worst. Birthday. Ever. IPv6's party falls flat

Re: Who in their right mind wants cloud based...

run the DSL modem "bridged" and manage the IPv4/v6 stuff with a FreeBSD or Linux machine. Then YOU have complete control, and if you ever want to wireshark "teh intarwebs" you can do it! Well, for everything on YOUR network, at any rate...

(then you can see for REAL what kind of slurping Win-10-nic is doing)

very little out there runs IPv6 ?

"very little out there runs IPv6"

you wouldn't mind explaining that, would you? I don't think that means what you think it means.

a) All Windows versions beginning with XP are capable of doing IPv6. W7 made it a bit more sane.

b) Many (if not all) Linux distros appear to be configured for IPv6 out of the box

c) some old NAT routers seem to have problems doing it right but this could be fixed with firmware updates

d) free IPv6 tunnels are available for when ISPs don't support IPv6 [some may work better if you have a fixed IPv4, however, and may require a bit of technical expertise to set up]

The uptake problem does seem to be at the 'last mile' or 'first mile' (whichever). What _I_ believe is that it's related to ISPs not wanting to SUPPORT it.

There are a LOT of open ports on windows boxen that would be "on a public IPv6" if it were adopted by ISPs. They need to get those PROMISCUOUS WINDOWS BOXEN under control somehow. A normal NAT won't do it. They don't want the responsibility (not even REMOTELY being responsible) for unleashing all of this. So they drag their feet, make "hmmm" noises and do NOTHING.

The fix: Tell MICRO-SHAFT to FIX THEIR CRAP and stop listening on ALL IP addresses with their LOCAL services [they should ONLY be listening on LOCALHOST, but NOOooooo... can't do THAT, it requires one or two EXTRA lines of code to make THAT happen...]

Re: Windows ID IoT

Using windows for embedded is kinda silly anyway, ESPECIALLY when Linux is FREE.

/me points out that if you have issues with GPL, then you can use FreeBSD instead. It's also FREE.

(even if you obtain it with a 'free' license, you can see that Micro-shaft is crafting new ways for a 'free IoT' version to actually COST you)

"Why doesn't MS see reliability as a marketable feature for normal PCs?"

You're asking the wrong question. Micro-shaft sees SLURP and TRACK and ADS and FORCE-YOU as a strategy to PWNING you and CONTROLLING you, which (as THEY perceive it) pays BETTER than providing something that the CUSTOMER wants.

And if you PAY EXTRA (this includes 'Enterprise' editions as well as this new IoT pay-for-it option) you can "opt out" of SOME of this.

Re: The thing is... it's nothing new.

"The news and magazine stand at our local supermarket as a special bin right next to it into which you can dump all the loose adverts"

and all of that stuff is easily recycled, so it's convenient as well.

I worked at a drug store when I was in H.S. and college, and there was a box bailing hydraulic press that was used for recycling all of the boxes. Similar deal, just have them pick up the contents of the 'loose advertising' bins at the same time. Everybody wins (except for the ad slingers).

Re: Recycling

e-waste recycling is reasonably profitable from what I understand. Once you grind everything up into tiny bits, you can extract things like gold, silver, copper, lead, aluminum, and other materials that are recyclable in one way or another. The oil-based stuff could be recycled the way you recycle any kind of plastic, I would imagine. In any case, the extracted materials have enough value to make it worth doing.

better to recycle than fill up landfills with this stuff at any rate, especially when its more profitable to recycle.

Dems push Ryan to vote to help save America's net neutrality measures

86% of Americans agree with *THEM*? Since *WHEN*?

I think the Demo[c,n][r,R]ats need to stop it with the DISHONESTY.

Trump will NEVER sign such a bill. He wants to DE-regulate. And the Demo[c,n][r,R]ats are misrepresenting what alleged "net neutrality" means anyway.

What it REALLY was (prior to Trump): something that large intarweb (liberal politics) companies like Google and Facebook bought and paid for, which isn't 'net neutrality' at ALL.

If they want to protect citizens from having their data misused, they can legislate that (maybe like GDPR). But STOPPING people/companies from BEING ABLE to pay extra to get better bandwidth, quality, etc. is just SOCIALISM being crammed up our, er, down our throats. "all equal" becomes "equally mediocre". (There are ways to do this right that would have NO negative consequences, and competition is one of them, instead of playing the 'class envy' game because one person has a nicer something and paid extra to get it)

some time ago I had problems with my intarweb connection, so I tried using a dial-up to access an old hotmail address, which I normally access via the POP server.

Re: Suggestive, but nothing more

we need something more compelling. bones would be nice. fossil deposition on mars may be completely different than on earth, however. Most of earth's fossils seem to be from catastrophic burials, like from volcanos and floods and stuff like that. Mars has sedimentary rocks as well, and so there may be similar deposits. Not sure if they had the kinds of dino-killing meteors that Earth had, though, to create really significant fossil layers in the rocks.

So finding fossils might be really difficult, regardless of the presence of ancient life there.

Re: MVFS

does GVFS (or, ahem, MVFS) even WORK under non-Micro-shaft-OS's ???

THIS thread suggests very little has been done:

https://github.com/Microsoft/GVFS/issues/4

maybe fusefs or similar might be a possible solution, but I'm not aware of anything significant being done here, and couldn't find easily with a quicky online search. (gvfs-fuse-daemon is apparently for gnome's VFS of the same name, not for the Github one).

I fear that this will become like EXCHANGE with it's own "Microsoft windows API" for windows, and potentially broken things for IMAP and POP and basically "everyone else". I remember actually seeing something like this happen where many API-related things were just 'not available' if you used Linux or FreeBSD and had a regular IMAP e-mail client like Thunderbird - people would try to send me files, they'd show up as a link I couldn't access, things like that. "But if you use Outlook for your e-mail". No. Just no.

Microsoft sinks another data centre with Natick 2

location near power stations

one of the advantages to the big ocean 'heat sink' is for power plants also, which must (generally) put 75% or so of the energy they create into the cooling system (for typical steam plants, YMMV with other technologies).

2nd law of thermodynamics being what it is, cooling is a necessary thing in the engineering world.

But it's just as convenient to put a power plant near the ocean as it is to put a data center into it, I'd think. So with all of that infrastructure nearby, it just makes sense to locate the data centers close to the power plants. Keep it from being ugly, and surfers and beach combers won't mind. They may actually LIKE the nearby data center and infrastructure (cell towers in particular) with respect to smart phone usage, etc.. Yes, people use their smart phones on the beach. Who knew?

However, back to a previous point: never underestimate the "wacky protesters" and their money-grubbing l[aw]yers when it comes to OBSTRUCTING EVERYTHING, for bogus B.S. and irritating touchy-feely reasons. Maybe LESS of that without actual buildings being constructed, but still. SOME "bright bulb" l[aw]yer will come up with "a way" and EXPLOIT it.

Re: Microsoft 'Shill' (the product)

@Just Enough

Actually the definition of a 'shill' is someone who pretends to be convinced by the con man in order to draw in the 'mark', specifically being that he's 'in on it' from the beginning. In 3 card monty, he'd be the guy that's constantly losing when it's "obvious" to the mark, who then bets and loses. The 'shill' drew him in. Alternately a 'shill' might be someone who argues an opposite point in a way that makes the con man look brilliant, etc.. The common factor here is that he's 'in on the con' and is acting as if he's not.

In this context, the 'shills' would be MS paid and/or dedicated fanbois that pretend to be 'regular testers' or 'regular insiders', or 'regular users', but then engage with anyone that has an opposing opinion or complaint, in a manner that is deliberately intended to silence, intimidate, etc. including the use of pejoratives and even beligerance. Yes, I've seen it. And when you "engage them back", _YOU_ get the ban. Well, I was careful and never got banned. Several others DID, however.

Yes, it _IS_ Micro-shaft's forum, which means they CAN do this. However, they're being dishonest about it by using 'Shills' instead of just plain telling you "do not say bad things about us or our products". I have to ask why they're trying to HIDE it, or at least obfuscate it.

Also associated with that would be the 'sock puppets', aka multiple logins for the same person and/or using bots to make a single line of thinking look "popular"

How about 'Forever', by way of incremental development and fixes, not re-re-re-inventing it 3 times, then CRAMMING IT UP OUR, er, DOWN OUR THROATS, and calling it "the last windows", complete with a FLUGLY 2D FLATSO UI, auto-updates that you can't shut off, SLURP, ADS, and TRACKING via a "Microsoft Logon", whether we want the "new, shiny" or NOT. Oh, and "The Store".

And if THEY aren't going to maintain XP, they should RELEASE THE SOURCE so that OTHERS can! I think the people over at ReactOS would really love doing that. They've been trying to write their OWN for YEARS.

Microsoft 'Shill' (the product)

I've seen the "Microsoft Shill" (aka sock puppets) at work in the past, particularly during the Win-10-nic beta. Dissenting voices were true 'grass roots'. The obvious fanbois [and howler monkeys] behaved in a "silence the opposition" mode nearly ALL of the time. A good number of THEM were probably shills, either people paid to do that sort of thing, or one person (or bot) acting as many.

Lesson learned: With respect to Win-10-nic, Micro-shaft asked for input, ignored what they weren't already going to do, and did what THEY wanted to do, anyway. They did not care about the existing base of users. They did not care about introducing slurp and ads as part of the OS. They did not care about driving development towards UWP and "The Store", both of which have effectively been FAILURES no matter how much lipstick they keep trying to put on the (non-oinky end of the) boar. They took away features people wanted, REFUSED to support (and in some ways, by deliberately breaking it) features that people wanted in order to customize windows 10 BACK to the way they wanted it, BANNED people from their forums for speaking out, and created a set of EULA's that are some of the WORST possible privacy violations I've ever seen.

What I fear in the future MOSTLY involves my logon, and how it would be used to track me, SPAM me, and otherwise MARKET TO me. My "coding fingerprint" for example, might tell them more than I want it to.

And, do we REALLY want Micro-shaft to be able to see what THEIR COMPETITORS are working on within a PRIVATE REPOSITORY? This includes patentable technologies as well as technologies that potentially involve "one of THEIR patents". Some of the implications here are obvious.

Perhaps it's time for independent developers to produce a REASONABLE alternative to the things that make GitHub very convenient, something considerably better than 'GitWeb' (the stuff that's included with 'git'). If it's an open source project, you could have MANY public or private 'githubs' everywhere.

Hitching their wagons to Win-10-nic

With Qualcomm and PC makers "hitching their wagons" to Win-10-nic, it is a recipe for FAIL, regardless.

In case nobody ELSE noticed, Windows "Ape" and Windows 10 are _THE_ _BIGGEST_ reasons for slumps in the new PC market. For why would ANYONE _WANT_ to replace a perfectly good working Windows 7 machine with something that runs Win-10-nic?

Yeah, I understand that hardware breaks over time, and this fact is going to force people to replace 'otherwise perfectly good' computers with "something off of the shelf" when they go titsup. But the fact remains (and this is based on me observing and reading news articles about it, etc., not just some rectal extrapolation): There is no real "wow" factor for Windows "Ape" and Win-10-nic, people aren't lining up to get it, they just tolerate it and generally shrug their shoulders over it, because THERE IS NOTHING ELSE, like when ONLY vanilla ice cream is on the menu at some restaurant.

This is unfortunate because ARM64 is a pretty cool thing. PC makers need to STOP letting THEIR success rely on the success of their COMPETITOR, aka Micro-shaft (the makers of Surface).

Re: How can it possibly be worth that much?

"they do charge money for private repositories"

and it seems to be cost-effective for small development projects in which you have one or more people working from home (or even more remotely). it's actually pretty good that way, as you can use issues and pull requests to manage collaboration, and the wiki to manage documentation.

I have a previous customer that managed their project this way. For the most part, it worked well. When done right, you could test a change in a branch, then commit it, and do 'git pull' and re-build things [as needed] in a very short period time, to update the production system. Down, git pull, build, up. pretty fast. And private repos, so the 'secret sauce' was kept secret [still had open source but it was in the form of taballs that were snapshots of firmware releases, not day-to-day history visible to the public].

Re: How long chips remain cheap remains to be seen

a lot of chip makers aren't in S.E. asia. just pointing that out.

But yeah, there are work safety and environmental issues in S.E. Asia, with China being high up on that list. They've been grossly polluting their cities, not just 'the occasional violation' as it would seem. fortunately the western world has made such irresponsibility illegal. Nobody wants dirty water/air. And don't try telling me Republicans are FOR it, either. (That's just FUD).

Some of the worst examples of employee exploitation, dangerous working conditions, and environmental pollution are in a COMMUNIST country. Think about it.

[A strong labor union or two, as well as some noisy environmental wacko groups, might actually do them some good... I hate to admit]

Still, the ONE thing that will render nearly all of that irrelevant will be automated chip factories in the USA and EU. Then the price can be low WITHOUT throwing a "mass of low wage bodies" at the manufacturing side. Instead you'll have a handful of technically competent well paid people managing the robots, and it would make more sense to have these factories "over here" for cost, transportation, and potentially political reasons.

Cheap chips will remain. The way their made, not so much.
