perhaps because Public Domain is not necessarily a valid license in all jurisdictions. In other words, in some countries it might not be possible to abandon creator's copyright, simply because the law does not allow it.
... or just use replication?
And #5 availability of compilers
Yes, it is actually rather ironic that AMD design had played crucial role to open the floodgates of Xeon chips into the data centres. Shame they rarely get recognition for this.
For more than 24 hours? You'd have to refer to a doctor ...
The trick is to use "make oldconfig" and then press Enter. More than few times.
The thing with linux kernel is that you have few older (and currently maintained & supported) versions to choose from, notably 4.4 and 4.9 as GKH mentioned. There is absolutely no reason to jump to 4.10 on the day it is released, that is unless you like living on the bleeding edge or have unusual hardware requirements.
Actually, I was looking at the other side of the pond ...
This "President Trump reportedly ordered that all new executive orders go through an expanded process that sought broader input from more government departments." is a rare show of common sense, from which others could learn. I'm shocked.
Instapaper is useful for reading websites offline on kindle (or similar devices). For example, news from IT world during lengthy commute. Hint, hint.
Well, you have to admit that it clearly stated Promo at the start!
I was referring to a firewall at the network boundary, blocking outgoing SMB traffic. If I have malicious server inside the firewall I'm f*d anyway, no matter whether or not my SMB client layer is buggy (e.g. because such server could hijack DHCP and then apply MitM rather than exploit SMB, to list one of many possible attack scenarios). To prevent against that threat, a half-solution could be to setup IPsec + DNSsec on the internal network, but really? Do I have to go there in the context of the vulnerability discussed here, I am not even full-time network administrator for f* sake! If I was I wouldn't be asking stupid questions, like the one above.
Blocking following ports for outbound traffic on the firewall should mitigate the problem, right?
TCP ports 137 139 445
UDP ports 137 138
Did I miss something?
You also get it from FastMail and other competing email-hosting businesses. Some are better and some are worse, but competition is healthy and for that reason I would suggest to refrain from giving even more business to Google.
All these " employee perks, largely to keep difficult-to-replace technical talent from leaving for greener pastures. Google has climbing walls. Facebook has on-site barbers" are not relevant, if the hard problems remain unsolved. Things such as long build times, poor workflow, poor dependency management, undisciplined colleagues etc. And the thing is, these do not have to be outright "solved" because developers understand these are hard problems. Usually it is enough for developers to see that these problems are being addressed or at least understood by management.
30g of sugar? Well I think they put more in a can of coke ...
Not much of a wig, that is.
oh c'mon. As long as this proviso stands "... provided that it is consistent with its terms of service" there is no chance in hell AAISP would apply filtering. Because that would be flagrant violation of their own ToS .
As for other ISPs? I can imagine some ISP might want to put an USP "child friendly, only manually handpicked websites will be available to you". Would that sell, I do not know, but the law being considered would allow an ISP to sell such a service. Apparently it is not allowed now?
I respectfully submit that a self-contained industrial control system, written in machine code and running on an extensively and carefully documented PDP-11 hardware is fairly easier to understand and maintain
Surely it is. But that does not change the fact that software which can only run on a difficult to replace piece of hardware is itself at the risk of becoming non-functional at any moment, due to said hardware suddenly becoming non-functional itself. That's where the management role is to look for replacement, to remove that particular risk. Of course one needs to have deep understanding of the subject not to allow to get dragged down a multi-million-LOC project, and that's another area where managlement is known to have weak points ...
... is that IPv6 does not need DHCP , it is perfectly well suited to randomly generate working IP addresses on system boot, and yet receive all other data from the router.
Well, perhaps that explains why DHCPv6 was not so well tested by Microsoft.
... is like pouring milk before hot water when making a tea. Getting there, but in the wrong order.
@billat29 I would recommend A&A as they provide bare connection service, but since you seem to be price sensitive I am not so sure you will like it. The service is top notch, though.
Also in the light of the fact that 4.8 is now officially EOL, it makes little sense to upgrade to it. It is not as if 4.4 will not run on newest intel CPUs; it may be simply less optimal e.g. using more battery power than it should.
@Paul Smith please be careful where you use the words "as an industry", because El Reg as a web publication had no reason to promote self-regulation of paper publications such as The Sun etc. It is the lawmakers who chose to put them all in the same basket.
NGMN is nothing else but a large group of network operators, trying to tap into internet of shit hype. They have no ITU affiliation and do not actually set standards.
Well at least that's what it looks like from the sidelines, happy to be corrected.
"You need to catch up." with what exactly? The only one which matter is ITU and they have nothing to say about 5G. The link you provided does not mention Qualcomm, which is heading towards different standard, from the same organization which developed LTE. But then again, since ITU keeps schtum there is nothing to talk about, anything to do with 5G is at this time purely speculation (or marketing talk, which is the same).
It is really embarrassing that government gets involved into this whole hype and someone needs to talk them out of it - just shows how clueless they are.
EDIT: on second thought - if someone explained that 5G is expected to be nothing else but incremental improvement on 4G, that would be lovely.
5g promises lower latency, lower power usage for iot, and higher concurrent throughput.
Downvote for making things up. Technically there is no such thing as "5G mobile network specification", so it can not promise nor deliver anything.
Well, what a surprise.
Yup, that's why I love El Reg. Two different authors, two different points of view. One might say that state media should learn from this example, but of course state media would never learn from private enterprise because it must be "inherently flawed".
Analysis of all the software's functions?
Well, since reverse engineering of malware is exactly what outfits such as ESET do all day long ...
Yes, thought about this too, then checked the write speeds here. No microSD (or regular size SD) will match 4Gbps (or 400MB/s). Still, I wonder if this speed is really useful in this case?
@Voland's right hand, while I share your sentiment about social function of eating, I am also offended by the suggestion that eating alone might be a sign of a troubled mind. Some of us simply do not have a company to eat with, nor appropriate place to seek such company. Or simply prefer eating alone for whatever reason. While such preference might be justifiably called "unsocial", I feel you have crossed the line here.
From personal experience, F-Secure seems fine.
The volatility of Bitcoin, or any minor currency, is mostly down to the volume of real-economic transaction conducted in it; the greater volume, the more stable the currency. Bitcoin is in it's infancy here.
and, quite likely, it will stay in infancy until some other cryptocurrency replaces it (or alternatively, it simply dies out) . This is because number of transactions per second is limited by block size, and there is no consensus to increase the block size.
Yes, but if they do I bet the new ones to replace these which John Deere put on "planned obsolescence" will be a different brand. It is a marvelous way of removing oneself from the market.
Oh wow, some of these searches were very "interesting". I wonder what my ISP (A&A) will make with ICR requests it is bound to receive soon :D
Frankly, I do not think the lack of reporting in "mainstream media" has anything to do with agendas etc. I think the reason is more prosaic : the right to privacy does not rank very high in media. It is perceived as something too technical or too mundane to talk about.
PFS is most useful for data in transmit, but it won't help data at rest and this is what authorities are also interested in.
I think it is the natural progression of small closed-source software: original developer gets bored and wants to move to new things, but not before monetizing on the old success.
You mean, rather large angle grinder? That does not scale to well-made safes.
It's the same old story: expect housing without actually building anywhere, expect jobs without transport etc. infrastructure, expect electricity without power plants ... and expect logical thinking rooted in facts, without education.
... merge window for Linux 4.10 will be shorter than usual., not longer as "predicted" in the article
Oh my ... that's why we need proper ISP like A&A, who not only generate the password just for your broadband modem, but also go out of their wait to help you set up a better one, if you happen to have one.
120,000 vs 150,000 .... this is very depressing. Or alternatively, it may serve to demonstrate the power of mainstream media.
Thanks for the link to ORG guys, signed up (already A&A customer - the service is absolutely brilliant)
@Nick I upvoted you, but then I thought - what if "powers to be" read your post and interpret the upvotes as endorsement of this plan? You have to admit, that's a possibility too, in which case downvotes would be needed ...
