Sounds like a pretty good system. Can you also track sample lineage eg DNA sample 1 and RNA sample 2 both come from tissue A?

Re: The lessons will be costly in money and lives
having a heart attack the last thing you want is the doctor having mistyped his password wrong for the third time and locking his account.
This seems like a good scenario for RFID chips; my physiotherapists have them in their badges and just tap the badge near on a sensor near the computer, this gives them access to the appointments system. If they want to look at X-rays etc. then they need badge + password. You could see how the trauma staff could have the speedy access in area where every second counts and then in other areas need more security.
Who in their right mind has internet/computer controlled and connected refrigerators?
A lot of drugs, blood etc need to be kept cool, having monitoring of the conditions would be useful. for example, if a drug is kept at room temperature for too long then it could be chucked away, a fridge could notice some odd parameters and have an engineer look at it etc.
The fridges etc. really should be on a separate network to the rest of the hospital though and definitely not on the Internet.
Re: one of the world's "big four" accountancy firms
I wonder how much they pay MS Azure to host it and the cost of the reputation damage/compensation compared to running their own systems?
I notice that the article refers to Azure and not Office 365; which suggests that Deloitte were running their own systems in Azure rather than just paying MS to do the lot.

Re: Pick a niche...
These days I don't think that companies take on many junior staff in schemes like YTS; I guess they look for recent graduates instead.
Isn't Bournemouth quite strong in computer gaming?
Re: How many are actually employed?
I suspect there's a huge difference between places like Cambridge, Imperial etc. and some of Britain's more errr "academically inclusive" universities.

I'd be very interested in a very geeky article about what they're up to too.
Dunno try asking Dr Freeman
Re: Directors should resign
They allowed their company to become dependent upon one large customer.
They may have assumed that they'd pick up another big customer in time. Moreover, I can't imagine that the VC and/or shareholders would be very happy with a company that turns down someone like Apple as a customer.
Re: Sub heading should read
Shish, what a bad pun
All 3par for the course.
Fixed that for you...
Re: We've all been there.
We all have difficult days in that department, but five months would certainly be a stretch.
A mix of iron tablets, codeine, and an egg-heavy diet may be to blame.
If only you'd eaten more fibre

Re: A Microsoft mail infrastructure having difficulty scaling? Say it isn't so!
We're on O365 and have about 140k employees
I'm sure they take a big byte out of it
Re: Waiting for the default statement
...forgetting that with the size of O365 even a small percentage of users having a problem will mean millions of people with no email.
Re: What will she actually do?
This is the kind of "boring" story that many on here would find interesting and would like to read.
What will she actually do?
When presiding over such a large Microsoft shop, if she "recuses" herself from all the decisions in this area, what is there left for her to do?
Re: So we're not really talking about EA's then...
I once worked with a PM who loved printing out his Gantt Charts having made sure that all the dependencies fed off each other even if that wasn't the case. Some of the Devs would deliberately complete some of the discrete tasks out of order so he'd have to redo his huge diagram. Other than it being a bit of fun this also meant that he would leave the developers unmolested to write code instead of unnecessary paperwork.
Modern SSDs & OSs support things like TRIM which should make problems like that go away.
Those plans were balanced by ~35 hires in Beijing, China and ~100 people in Pune, India, plus the intention to open a new San Francisco office and fill it with up to 150 people as part of an effort to concentrate management positions in the Bay Area.
If offshoring is so good; then why not do the management too?
Re: "the low-flying aircraft that keep my neighbourhood affordable"
I find this kind of noise is "blankable", it's the constant talking and people moving that I find distracting.

"“Woooow I wasn't expecting to be in a jury Deciding a paedophile's fate, I've always wanted to Fuck up a paedophile & now I'm within the law!”"
Yep. He's too stupid to realise that his function is decide if the suspect is a paedophile or not...

A pint for the Mr Travaglia ->

I agree entirely.
When I see vendors' new software, I always ask about colour blind users, I've yet to see one where they've actually thought about it.
Re: Label as TEST
When rolling out your own applications, you can make all the colour and GUI changes you like; if you're rolling out a 3rd party application then there is often no way of doing it.
Re: different colours for test and live
Didn't Plusnet delete rather a lot of email when a sysadmin typed rm -rf in the wrong shell?
If the test system was never shutdown then deleting it might not have any effect.
The privacy of our customers is of great importance to us
Paul Moore went public with his findings after failing to get the retailer to act even 12 months after first reporting the issue.
The privacy of our customers is of great importance to us and we will continue to do our utmost to ensure that this is properly protected.
Somehow those two statements don't really match up!

Re: I've thought of this often
Except that you really don't want the headache of water-cooling your rack-mounted servers.
BTW CSCS are very open to giving tours; if you're in the area then their setp is very, very impressive.
Re: Commerce without human contact
I feel slightly bad when I use the automated checkouts at my local supermarket as they appear to lower staffing requirement by 75% (four tills:one human); the staff do encourage you to use the self service which seems a bit like turkeys voting for Christmas (although they may not have a choice).
