"... at least it puts a shelf life against stolen credentials"
if passwords are not reused that should not be a problem. In case of a genuine password leak the correct way to enforce password security is via monitoring of user logins. That gives you much shorter reaction time and also view on the damage incurred.
I use fail2ban with a tweak to ban whole network segment, as per IP ownership lookup. It is really obligatory tweak on sites which support IPv6 (and mine does).
Yes, after I switched to Ubuntu the scripts from Brother started working just fine. It was hit-and-miss with Manjaro, though.
I have a six years old Brother laser, color with duplex and network port. Would like to replace it with a newer model, but it just does not fail, and I have no heart to throw away a functioning machine. I did replace its toner few times (not too often), reset the page count on tenor cartridges few more times (not too difficult, and thankfully well documented now) and cleaned its insides once (after apparent black toner leak). It does not look like much, and installing working drivers in Linux is more hassle than I would like it to be (still doable, though), but it works, and tenor is cheap per page count (if reset, as it should be).
I am available.
I am currently reading a great book, titled "Designing data intensive applications". There are many things in it that I "kind of knew", but never was aware of the details of. The point is, systems like the ones "discussed" here are typically designed by guys (invariably - a woman would have learned first) who "kind of know" how to do it but in actuality, not quite. They learn on the job, like most of us did. So, the server side services are unresponsive, lose data on occasion, do not offer a clear upgrade path for the client side app etc. Things "kind of work", if you squint enough - just not when you need them to. The answer is to learn, but when do you learn if the project budget has been eaten up already by five project managers and ten consultants, and you are half year behind the schedule?
Good luck to her.
"We employ multi-layered security controls across our systems"
That's what you get when you employ PR-bots who are the only people allowed to talk to the press. There is only one official line, which must be religiously followed in all communication (until it is replaced, that is).
There was also IRC ...
@Bernard M. Orwell I believe you are right (cannot access that www.hattonjameslegal.co.uk link now), but that does not make "men only" job ads any less wrong.
It is not illegal to limit the job ad reach according to locality. It is illegal to limit the job ad reach according to gender (or race, age, religion, sexual preferences etc). I know, to a hyper-logical brain of a talented software engineer (with a slight deficiency on empathy side) that does not make sense, but nevertheless that's how it is. And if you think about the reasons why this is (something to do with personal identity) it might just start making sense.
It is still discrimination. The fact that it is financially motivated does not make it less discriminatory. Also, from the point of view of someone who has worked with women programmers in the past (and is hoping to work with them in the future), more diversity at positions traditionally dominated by men is a good thing. I do not mean "eye candy", but diversity of opinions and approaches to problem solving. Hiring managers who place such discriminatory ads are doing themselves and their employers a disservice.
I actually meant Microsoft throwing their oar in to help
Given that most of the help in this area comes from RedHat (e.g. virtio drivers) who knows, perhaps Microsoft is actually involved, just indirectly and without the branding.
I found that the best way for "seamless mode" is to run a vcxsrv under Windows and configure both PuTTY and sshd for X11 forwarding. Your Linux machine can run anywhere on the network (including your own box - Hyper-V can run your virtual machine in the background). GUI for your Linux hosted programs will show up on Windows screen almost as if it was native application. I rather like running CLion this way (so I have native gcc / clang build despite running Windows, in a virtual machine, on top of headless Linux)
I've been doing that for years and its been working flawlessly for a long time, also for some heavy gaming (e.g. Witcher 3). Granted, my Linux box (and hypervisor) is beefed up and headless. The GPU is exclusively assigned to Windows guest with vfio, so that might not be what you are looking for. Having the ability to just roll back Windows to an old snapshot of "drive C" via ssh to hypervisor is very nice, though.
Not much trouble at all - just boot from appropriately prepared USB device and continue installation according to the directions of the setup script.
... model X270 will be available at a discount early next year. I've been waiting for this moment too long.
Please, please give me the ability to select "dark design". Black background, white(-ish) letters, with some colour here and there.
Yay, Charles Stross - really like his books, have not seen this story yet!
@amanfromMars1 glad to see you here, but these dried frog pills won't eat themselves you know. It would be nice to see you in a slightly more lucid state, in other words.
Andrei Tyurin is extradited from Georgia (country, not US state obviously). Russia does not extradite its own citizens, no matter the crime. I think they have it in constitution.
.... I wonder if the James Webb Telescope will get more fuel to stay active longer than originally planned. It would appear that the launch vehicle chosen for the mission might have spare capacity.
Sorry for the slight OT, it just annoys me a lot that a multi-billion worth of hardware (and actually priceless in terms of scientific research and discovery) is only usable for short few years "because planning", and if it stays in somehow working shape for few years longer, everyone acts surprised. This should be planned for longer spans, in the first place.
Superluminal motion is explained in few sources - basically this is about the jet of matter moving at a speed close to the speed of light towards the observer, and emitting photons at the same time. This means that some photons are emitted from the jet when it is much closer to the observer, but (because of the speed at which the matter emitting the photons moves) they arrive only a short time after the photons emitted at the start the event arrived to the observer.
feeling hot here ...
Well, that spares everyone the humiliation of haggling over the bonus in public.
... actually, I need to correct myself. The only reason for Intel architecture to stay at the position it is right now is its instruction set
Intel (firm) knows it very well, which is why it is investing in alternatives - for example (also The Next Platform).
I am more enthusiastic for ARM. The reason Intel is a power hog is because the chip, internally, is a RISC. It emulates the IA instruction set in software, i.e. microcode. That is clearly not as efficient as simply running RISC instruction set. This emulation is why all the low-power Intel attempts have failed, and the native RISC instruction set is why ARM is so doing well at the low-power end. But this does not mean that ARM needs to be barred entry to the high power computing - quite the opposite, actually, because it turns out that at the high end, the power efficiency is also very important. For an example, see The Next Platform. The only reason for Intel to stay at the position it is right now is its instruction set, which the exact same thing killing its (energy) performance.
The other way to look at margin is "how much is the given company ripping its customers". The large figure you see on the Intel side is the reason why AMD has increased, and will keep increasing, its revenue. It is also the reason why Intel needs to make some hard decisions, soon. The relation between both sides is what we call "competition".
I do have a Polar Flow account and was never under the impression that my routes are private. I wonder where did the military men get that impression from? Or perhaps they just made certain assumptions without checking?
... not to mention bitrot. Which is real thing if you store large enough set of data.
free samples for test purposes, of course.
I build my own kernel for every minor release - it's pretty easy actually, but not because of my (rather embarrassing level of) knowledge of how to do it, but simply thanks to the distribution making it easy to customise and build own packages.
Other great filesystems aside, I think that you do not need to have Lustre in the upstream kernel in order to be able to use it - just build your own modules from out-of-tree Lustre sources. Not entirely sure about this and happy to be corrected.
why std::shared_ptr<T> or std::vector<T>::iterator did not provide some additional checking whether memory gets destroyed whilst within the member function itself
My response to this category of problems is: fix your design.
if on the other hand the committee is seen as a vehicle to push each member's pet projects and goals...
It is not - because it is possible for any member of the committee to stop dead a pet project of another member if they deem it an "unworkable time hog". Sometimes that saddens me, sometimes I glad because of that. There are many proposals and also some interesting research which deserve closer attention than they receive.
However, "design by committee" does show up, in the very very long "bikeshedding" discussions where most participants agree in principle on a feature or change, but cannot agree on how it should be designed.
I will not get into your examples (graphics is not my area) but you are touching two issues here:
1) motivation at work - this is indeed doing what you have passion for and being recognized for your work
2) lack of motivation as a result of three points you have listed above.
But there is also another thing: burnout as a result of doing what you love, but too much. This may happen, too. Sadly most employers do not recognize when this happens and have no policies for helping employees who work more than e.g. 60 hours per week.
"3. Make much faster memory" to be honest, we already have much faster memory, it is called SRAM - sadly required power makes it not practical for anything beyond small amount inside the CPU for caches. I agree that we should invest in research (and productisation) of new types of memory, optimised for very low latency.
"Does this make sense? Honest question." - nope. The compilers are not at fault, although they may help alleviate the pain. It is multistage pipelines in the CPU and the associated high cost of branch misprediction which pushed the CPU designers to speculatively execute branches before we know whether or not we need it. Couple this with the high cost of cache misses and that's your side channel attach right there.
One way to fix it would be to push the "speculative" part from the CPU to the compiler like Mill architecture does, but it is a very different beast to what we have now, with a very different instruction set to match.
I'd like to believe that 1) SafeSpec is actually viable (in terms of die space and performance cost) and that 2) CPU vendors will actually spend money implementing it. But I try not to be too optimistic ...
Here is the thing - China is, by far, the largest buyer of American debt. The interest of which is tightly coupled to price, which can be manipulated by someone with a sufficiently large long position - like China for example. If things go much further, Chinese could imaginably ruin American economy by flooding the interest rates market with Treasury notes, which would push the yields up. It would cost them an arm and leg, but who knows - for a centrally managed economy it might be just doable, especially if aimed only at the weeks where the impact would be the biggest i.e. re-issuance of more Treasury debt. With the interest rates adjusted to match the inflated yields.
I especially like this clause, which is hard to argue against: "The protection of intellectual property rights is ordinarily and naturally a cost of the business which owns those rights and has the relevant interest in asserting them."
Good sense wins!
Sadly I think not - otherwise, it would be a talking point.
BlackBerry is not stock Android - its software is pretty good actually (especially Hub and DTEK). They learned to do it right, well before Google did. Luckily BlackBerry is still doing the software and it appears that, on the hardware side, TCL is not too bad either.
... is wisconsingazette.com
I think it is good that these names should be listed in public. If they are unavailable to EU because of GDPR that means that either 1) they are collecting PII data they have no business knowing or 2) they have no idea what GDPR is, and act out of fear. Either way, it is good that these sites should be publicly known.
