I wonder how is the sound quality
If it can be made very good, I'd like such speakers - for a computer.

Finally, a working solution for battery wear when a laptop is attached to power supply all day long. Just keep depleting the battery nevertheless!
@AC here is appropriate icon for you, as you were unable to select it yourself ->
... however it is just a wish. What with signal failures occurring everyday on the tube, the air quality on platforms worse than middle of a very busy road, and buses running to some unimaginable and very unreal schedule. If tube was fixed and buses replaced by, say, level 5 autonomic public transport electric cars at the 10% of a price of a regular cab, that would be most useful. And this not happen for a very very long time, because unfortunately anyone in position to push such change will be beholden to transport unions.
Still, the author deserves to be thanked for the music associations this has brought.
Do not use ".0" release. And if you do, you should know what you are doing. So, hats off to Pavel Goran for volunteering to run it, and then identifying a serious filesystem bug.
s/where/were/ , FTFY. And yes, you are right.
This is promising, back to the roots I would say.
I almost like what they did, but for one thing: how are they going to enforce that the owner of bitcoins will not be able to convert to fiat currency? It is literally out of their hand now.
I wish we were able to examine it. Such an endeavour would have required a small automated science craft, atop of a very powerful rocket, ready for launch at a very short notice. IMO it is unlikely our governments would choose to spend tax money this way, if they can buy votes instead ...
So, not so much "background" as "bottom-level" checks
"If you have a compromised Kernel" ... then you have lost the game already and nothing is going to change that. For one thing, you cannot rely on kernel being able to detect the compromise (it is compromised, hence untrusted already).
The only thing you can do is to make the post-mortem easier, and killing the kernel will likely have the opposite effect.
I am surprised anyone could downvote you. I guess there are morons who do not see the difference between system user-mode hack and kernel level hack.
I suspect for charging only, a turbine would be more efficient. Also very, very cool.
Aren't all 'planes airgapped, by their very nature?
Yes, unless there's been a horrible accident. I will meet you by the door.
blue collar and lawyers, of course.
My keyONE lasts 2 days easily, or 3 if I do not use it much. It comes with 3.5Ah battery. So yes, it might be the niche for Blackberry to fill.
I thought there was some drive for standardization for this (device enumeration, firmware interface etc) in ARM. Also it would look differently for SoC and for server oriented architecture. Curious if anything became of it.
ideal nice little project for Mr Lester that would be ...
... icon, because.
@Nate have you seen recent Intel errata?
They are pursuing a different path - massive parallelism with thousands of simple but fully programmable cores and their own architecture. You can see some of this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86seb-iZCnI
Plain ZFS does not support clustering, and that is exactly what CEPH brings to the table (on top of checksumming etc capabilities of ZFS). At least, that's my understanding of a system I cannot really afford to try myself ...
I put a filesystem in your filesystem, as I heard you like filesystems.
Hmm should I try CEPH on ZFS now .... easy question, as I do not really have required equipment at hand :-(
... with the experience in the estimated billing from the UK energy companies.
I stand corrected
clearly the civilization which once occupied habitable planet(s) in this system blew it off one day, resulting in a mass of post-planetary rubble round their (late in development cycle) sun.
My guess would be it is high resolution problem. I have AMOLED screen on an MP3 player (remember those?) which is now more than 6 years old, it looked great in most conditions (direct sunlight aside).
That's a good point. A naiive assumption would be that road signs are an absolute, however for any reasonable driver actual road situation (e.g. approaching a sharp turn, weather conditions, cars nearby) obviously take precedence. The question is, how much "reasoning" can an AI driver actually perform.
Coherent interface and FPGA? That is very interesting. If I am not mistaken, "coherent" stands for memory access by the device, so assuming this thing works as implied I can imagine a card sending network updates directly into application data-processing loop. Or card reading the output queue (again directly from the application address space) and pushing it out over the network. Very nice thing, from the point of view of cutting application latency. Even if it only works on POWER architecture this way (which could use some USP anyway, and CAPI + NVLink seem like two such)
... for El Reg to recognize the origin of Pepe the Frog
Well, something like this might get rid of latency. Can't be sure about caps or speed, since this is early planning stages. It is obviously large technological challenge, also very expensive (although I can think of one way this could paid off). The link above is from an this article at Ars Technica.
Total Inability To Sustain Usual Performance ... yep, looks like performance problem. Using broad definition of the word, obviously. See also definition from Oxford Dictionary:
2 [mass noun] The action or process of performing a task or function.
A different than intended task was performed, and some bookmarks got lost? OK, that looks like a "performance problem" to me.
"if they're going to boast about turning the volume up to 11" ... that's a big if, as things stand.
makes me wonder if "1e6" was lost in translation
This is why the most valuable lesson a programmer can receive is not on programming techniques, or libraries, or methodologies. It is what the users actually want and will do with your piece of software. Writing a nice piece of code has no value, if users are not using it. Code has no inherent value in itself. It is what users do with your program which brings the value, and what we (programmers) are paid for.
Dave I loved your article, but there is so much more that could be said on the subject. There is general confusion between code and asset (code is documentation - binary is asset). Unsurprisingly this is both on the enterprise side and on developers side. As a result, little learning happens and when it does happen, it is rarely applied. Similarly, unnecessary code is often added while old code is rarely optimized or removed - or tested (automatically). I could go on .... but not now.
Another nice nugget to learn :)
Out of curiosity - do you have "proper" APL keyboard for your desk calculator app? What application do you actually use in this character? Asking because my favourite "calculator app" is Debug4x , with its HP 50g emulator (programmable in RPL, but I only use RPN part)
"(I" ??? WTF, single CAPITAL letter for a LISP atom? Clearly you should not write any LISP code, let alone hate it!
(you are (not (allowed to (hate lisp))))
They are regulated like a bank.
"It should never be about rapid release without adequate testing." - that's right, the problem is (of course) the scope of automated testing in any particular implementation. You need to have more than just unit tests (test each individual functionality/use case in separation), but adding automated regression (test whole binary end-to-end), integration (test data flows within the system) and performance tests takes more effort.
"Agile ... led by managers" You seem to have confused Agile with "Agile" label, which anyone can pin to their chest/team/process/mess, without actually bothering to understand what it means.
If I had to make a choice, I very much would prefer a few-hours long outage where no data is actually lost (only the processing is delayed) as opposed to whole day, or even whole week, outages where unfinished transactions are dropped on the floor. Something that more traditional institutions "excel" at - banks and airlines alike.
If anything, this outage has proved that Monzo knows how to deal with an outage and how to communicate with customers. Again, older banking institutions put to shame in comparison.
EDIT: in actual agile environment "lessons will be learned" actually means what it says on the tin. Especially in a new institution, which almost by definition is in "learning mode" all the time. There is hoping that with this, relatively small, outage Monzo will have learned to appreciate more through integration testing.
Out of curiosity, does any other phone (besides S8) offer iris recognition?
