That's novel. I'm going into the kitchen to reverse the knives right now.
"I want to get to the point where I worry that the latest IoT device that we have declared "ready for market" might flood the office space with a deadly neurotoxin.'
Well, thanks, I hadn't thought of that one...
But I just wanted to upvote you for your handle,
re: If you violate the EULA, you lose the right to utilise the copy-right for the software
So? You simply take that dvd, scribble Do Not Use on it, drop it in your safe and buy a 2nd copy. fuck the eula from dvd #1, you're using dvd #2.
Do you mean to tell me that cut-and-paste isn't the same as writing new code?
What does this really say about the Chakra Core?
I saw the Christopher Nolan re'release on Imax this summer.
I loved it.... but my now, my girlfriend won't ever go with me to see another movie...ever again...
I hear that quantum entaglement will insure that all quantum-derived crypto is broken as its created.
All of them have been Samsing Galaxy Tab S's. The first stopped taking a charge, the 2nd was sat on and looks like a 'v',the third was lost, the 4th was stepped on and looks like a 'u'. Along with #4, i got one for my better half. With #3, i got one for her girl as a graduation present.
I love the highres display and will probably get a bluetooth keyboard/mouse this year. The reason for that is that I can use my tablet, vpn and rdp software, and not have to carry a laptop when i'm on call.
I'd like to put one in each of my vehicles for google maps, and by every flatscreen for casting, but the price is too steep...
You missed the part they they both were probably lying.
To me, there's no difference between lying by omission and lying because you no longer remember what was actually said or done. I, personally, don't trust my memory as far as I can throw it (which is about 6 feet.)
Why would you need to run oomd on a system where your applications are in cgroups? Can someone explain this? Or is it a matter of left-hand, right-hand nil communicado?
And that's exactly why I configure the DNS settings in firefox to be disabled.
What it really does is take control of DNS out of local administrators' hands and forces even tiny companies to use https proxies to prevent this traffic from reaching its end-point.
In one network I manage, they use OpenDNS. In order to insure that every machine in the company uses the opendns proxies, only the DC's and those proxies are allowed to make dns queries to the internet, everyone else will get a timeout. if they move to DoH, I'll have to stand up a https proxy and then reject DoH traffic.
My girlfriend has excellent digital skills.
"Second, the cloud comms biz is debuting a service called <Pay>, the great-than and less-than signs serving to appeal to developers, enrage copy editors, and make content management systems choke on unclosed HTML tags."
I was just graduating High School in 1987...oh. I am old, too.
Which one do I like the least...its a tossup.
re AC "In my experience on the Hell Desk, the phrases "I'm an engineer" or "I work in IT" usually means the grand sum of the caller's technical experience is that they once upgraded the video card in a computer that they purchased from a retail store."
You must work for Comcast or AT&T.
The last time I called AT&T to report a problem with their equipment, I had to remove my commercial firewall and connect the link directly to my pc because they said my commercial firewall (which had only recently been relocated from an office network to my home network) was not compatible with their service (that was the same at both the office, and my house).
Unless the network saavy of developers has increased massively in the last 30 years, and as far as I can tell, it hasn't, this is going to be an unmitigated disaster. I'm not saying there aren't any developers who understand networking and security, but it's a very, very low number.
They're now members of an even more exclusive club than that of astronauts/cosmonauts, and members of the more exclusive club of 'astronauts/cosmonauts who've been to space'.. The club for those who's spaceflight aborted during ascent......and didn't kill them.
And just what would the passengers in 1st class do if the pilots ejected from a 787?
I want to know who got the bribe and how much they got. At this point, there's no reason to extend it.
Oh, but sometimes its so very satisfying to watch.
"Same here. We have alarms people using old telephone cable even though we have not supported it for over a decade (we're all IP now). The Estates department are a law unto themselves."
That's probably because the local Health & Safety regulations require it. No VoIP phones in elevators.
You should aslo keep one hand in the other back pocket. This will prevent you from turning your chest in to a resistor with two arms as leads.
Have you not wached Anthony Bourdan's No Reservations, apparently Christmas season starts in October in the Phillipines.
I disagree, jumpers are perfectly valid for laptops. My Thinkpad already has two panels on the bottom that open with a couple of screws, and the keyboard is removable on the top. Welcome to the 1970's...
That we could do anything about?
Absolutely fucking nothing.
The only event that would merit a real presidential alert would be the simultaneous launching of ICBMs by every nation in the world, including the U.S.
Well, since J is for Jessie, I guess the correct answer is: He'd rob the train.
Yes you can, you may be only able to exfiltrate 1 line per second, but given time, I can extract any text file that I can reach, and if the clipboard is available, I can do it in just a few clicks.
I hate to break it to you, but Windows Server 2012 R2 does come with RDP disabled by default.
All they have to do is bring back multicast. We used to multicast the quarterly all-hands broadcasts on our LAN back in the 1990's.
Last year, I probably received 6 calls a day from non-working numbers in on my area code and exchange (the first 6 digits of a 10 digit U.S. phone number), and since I don't actually know anyone with a number that close to mine, I never answered them. This year, I get anywhere from 4-12 calls per day but they now come from area code+exchange+/-2.
The only way I know to solve this problem (short of dropping the planet into a black hole) is to force telecoms to require proof of ownership of a number before it can be substituted for outgoing CLID. But I'm not sure how to make that simple enough since there's no reason a company has to acquire all of its numbers from a single company.
And when you reach -20, we shoot you. Is that ok with you, too?
And can we start L.P. off at -18?
She's a damn actress, so I'm also concerned who's going go show up in court. She's also into AI and veganism, which is a terrible combination for someone who's expected to watch cats, dogs, cows, horses, and humans being minced.
I wonder if she didn't fail to get hired by facebook in one of her specialty fields, and picked this god-forsaken job just to get back at them for not hiring her directly.
Because if you are hired to be a content moderator, you're typicaly only ever going to see (content that needs to be moderated) images that are worse than terrible. If you can't take it, resign, quit, go on strike, etc. do whatever you have to do to not do that job except for taping your mouse to the table, turning off your monitor, and clicking 'allow' for 8 hours/day.
What model? The DPS-8/47 wouldn't, neither would a dual DPS-90 or dual DPS-8000.
re: Even DOS had stdin, stdout and stderr ...
Jake, surely you know better, every Microsoft error message was a Network Error*.
* - No, I'm never ever going to forgive Bill Gates for that.
You've got that backwards, 5G will require 10-20 times more towers that 3G/4G.
"The guys who developed v6 weren't stupid or arrogant."
Techically, you are correct, but change that 'or' to an 'and' and the sentence becomes a lie.
We never let student or faculty jobs run at the same priority level as the SIS (student information system) or Accounting jobs. There were users in the physics department who's jobs would run for over a week because they ran at such a low priority that any (i hesitate to say 'real job') (ah!) university critical job, like payroll, grades, etc. always ran with a higher priority. That being said, from about 11:30 pm until 7:45 am, the physics department could keep all of the processors at 100% for weeks at a time.
No longer allowing vaccuuming or buffing in the data center. hint, the bottom row of tapes on every rack were wiped by the buffer... it took about a month to discover this, and it was only discovered when the CE was in laaate at night performing maintenance when the janitor rolled the buffer onto the raised floor.
You owe me a new keyboard...
Somehow, I don't see the guilty party writing it up as you seem to think they would.
Assuming that their production systems had current, non-expired certificates, then the copies of the old certificates on the monitoring system wouldn't have allowed the monitoring system to actually decrypt the data, and as was pointed out above, their system was configured to fail-open, instead of fail-closed.
No, there's always openVMS.
I had the same thoughts, remembering PulseAudio, zeroconf, and of course, systemd. He's going to take over and make popcorn out of Linux.
Probably Type-N. The type that you can pump kilowatts through without arcing, melting, or catching fire.
I think I have a solution. Once you have your website built, but before you open it to the public, you simply have to write a letter to the collection societies (BMG, ASCAP, etc. see here for a bigger list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_copyright_collection_societies ) and tell them that you've built a copyright filter and that in order to prevent the upload of their copyrighted works, they'll need to send you, at no charge, a digital copy of every work that they expect your filter to block. Tell them that if they don't expect you to block a particular work, they should withhold it from you.
Send them via registered mail.
If they don't send you a couple of trucks full of dvds, you're free to allow your users to upload anything that they've refused to provide you with.
No, we used to simply skip the articles with his by-line.
Now, we can't because the new format doesn't always indicate the author.
They've re-invented the mainframe. Congratulations server makers.
