You're on a Huawei to Hell, US Sec State Pompeo warns allies: Buy Beijing's boxes, no more intelligence for you
Lovely website you got there. Would be a shame if we, er, someone were to sink it: Google warns EU link tax will magnify media monetary misery
Friday fun fact: If Stegosauruses had space telescopes, they wouldn't have seen any rings around Saturn
'Pure technical contributions aren’t enough'.... Intel commits to code of conduct for open-source projects
I'm a bloody good programmer and gay and sick and tired of macho white heterosexuals offending everyone and everything that doesn't conform to their norm. I'm sick and tired of being dismissed because of being gay. So if a coc is going to drive out those stone-age macho white heteroaexuals I say bring on the f-ing coc's. And a big thank you to those neanderthals who quit their job because of them, the world is a much better place without you!
Carlo has a head for apps and a body (tag) for rendering: Google takes on Electron with JS desktop app toolset
So how many lines of code have all the obligatory commentards who denounce this code of conduct actually contributed? And how does that compare to the number of lines that Linus, Greg and the other maintainers behind this coc have contributed? I'm inclined to think that if the kernel maintainers deem it necessary to curtail abusive behaviour, that they have good reason to do so.
Is this cuttlefish really all that cosmic? Ubuntu 18.10 arrives with extra spit, polish, 4.18 kernel
Re: "the system has a more modern and 'flatter' look"
For me, i don't consider kde an option ever because it wastes so much resources on eye candy, bogging down my system. In a vm kde is unusable too becsuse it is so bloated.
Then again, I don't use gnome either. First thing I do is install xmonad, a non-decorated tiling window manager. I come to my computer to do stuff, not to get dazzled by eye-candy or getting rsi endlessly arranging windows with a mouse.
Multi-monitor support also sucks for both kde and gnome.
"I think the point is that in a large organisation, particularly admin type departments, which are often he majority, they all have the same build.".
I remember working for such a shop once. They treated the sw dev department the same. "Hey, if any can run outlook on it surely you can develop your highly specialized embedded software on it". The machine was good enough for (barely, when the anti-virus, policy enforcing crap and surveillance software wasn't maxing out the cpu) writing my resignation letter.
Re: It's not "browsing" anymore..
"This means that things like router configuration webpages will be marked as "insecure".".
And it would be correct to mark them as insecure. Whether that's convenient is another matter, but sending your router password unencrypted over the air is indeed considered insecure.
Re: pardon, me ignorant
Scp or sftp, i'm sure there's android clients for those. But you can continue to use the legacy and insecure (your password is sent over the wire unencrypted, as are sll your files) ftp, this article only says that websites that pull, let's say, their images in over ftp (instead of http/https which is used by 99.9999999999999999999999999% of the sites) are going to break. This is independent of whether those images have been uploaded over ftp or not.
At some point these gig workers will figure out neither the company nor the customers give a shit about them, and may return the favour. Maybe make an extra buck signaling to their local burglar association when one of their customers left the house or something like that. Karma will find its way eventually.
And how would they verify that what kaspersky installs on their machines corresponds directly to the source code? How are they going to check that nothing has been modified, added or removed from the source code in between it being shown and it being compiled into a binary?
I think it makes a lot of sense not too buy antivirus from a company that is from a country that has an active policy to destabilize your own country.
So, I've been using containers for about 2 decades. Except we called it jails, and they ran on FreeBSD. All the penguin fanboys laughed and said virtualisation was so much better. Look at them now, pretending they invented something new. Maybe they'll get zfs right sometime soon too, i mean its been about a decade that it has been rock solid on FreeBSD.
(Of course, the real innovators have been Sun with Solaris back in the day, we're still digesting all that and integrating it in more inferior os'es)
"In theory, this will create new opportunities for European filmmakers in non-English languages. In reality, it will likely mean Netflix being legally obliged to carry millions of hours of pretentious nonsense."
So more Scandinavian and British detectives, and less of that pretentious and boring nonsense from the US? I like it already!
Of course, free speech in the us ends when you say bad things about us companies. DMCA ring a bell? Oh, and also don't be negative about the president, the gov will come after you! Oh, and don't even think about exposing the crimes the us secret services commit.
Yeah, the us is such a haven of free speech....
typical french behaviour
I would say Battistelli is a typical frenchman: arrogant, does not listen to critique, believes he is superior to the rest of the world. France in a nutshell.
The french are a lost cause. After the terrorist attacks on Paris what did they do? Right, go to bed with that other terrorist group: Russia!
