Most of them.
If they were called the Washington Negro's would we be having this discussion? No, they would've been pressured into changing their name decades ago. The point being that the "redskin's" are a marginalized group that nobody seems to give a fuck about it which is the issue.
It's about both cost and risk analysis. If you've got a lot of infrastructure, then you've probably already got a team of decent admins. Adding another server has a very small marginal cost. If you haven't, then the cost is basically the cost of hiring a sysadmin. Even the cheapest full-time sysadmin costs a lot more than you can easily spend with GitHub. Alternatively, you get one of your devs to run it. Now you have a service that is only understood well by one person, where installing security updates (let alone testing them first) is nowhere near that top priority in that person's professional life, and where at even one hour a week spent on sysadmin tasks you're still spending a lot more than an equivalent service from GitHub would cost.
In both of the latter cases, the competition for GitHub isn't a competent and motivated in-house team. It is almost certainly better to run your own infrastructure well, but the competition for GitHub is running your own infrastructure badly and they're a very attractive proposition in that comparison.
Outsourcing things that are not your core competency is not intrinsically bad, the problem is when people outsource things that are their core competency (e.g. software companies deciding to outsource all of the development - it's not a huge step from there to the people working for the outsourcing company to decide to also handle outsourcing management and start up a competitor, with all of the expertise that should be yours), or outsourcing without doing a proper cost-benefit analysis (other than 'oh, look, it's cheaper this quarter!').
If you think outsourcing storage of documents is bad remember that, legal companies, hospitals and so on have been doing this for decades without issues - storing large quantities of paper / microfiche is not their core competency and there are companies that can, due to economies of scale, do it much cheaper. Oh, and if that still scares you, remember that most companies outsource storing all of their money as well...
I'm sorry, are these people workers / managers at github or did you just cherry pick some posts by people who happen to use GitHub and welcome gender equality (to whatever scale YOU find repugnant).
Did you ever wake up at night sweating and say: "Damn, I'm on the wrong side of history!"?
No not KISS.... CHEAP.
Walmart still uses those out of date IBM systems because they will have to rip out the IBM backend as well. changing over to something newer means millions of dollars.
Sorry, but I just don't understand what the purpose is, and it isn't stated in the thread linked -- other than a few
... (maybe) benchmarks that don't cover many real-world use cases.
With CFQ, an high disk-IO task will block every other process on the system from getting any time. This can be a big file cp, but I see it most often when writing to slow USB thumb drives... Queue up a copy/rsync/etc. of a few GBytes of data to a slow thumb drive, and after your RAM/buffer cache is filled, your system will be almost completely unresponsive.
Change your scheduler from CFQ to deadline and your system will spring back to life. I don't specifically know that BFQ does any better, but it couldn't possibly be worse... CFQ is crap.
Use a good browser plugin or some good backend rules, but block every single advert out there. That stops the "OHHH YOU GOTTA INSTALL THIS" vector that fools clueless visitors into downloading and running the trojan.
Good people install adblocking on every single computer they touch. Bad people allow ad's from websites.
Dear web admins.... WAHH. If you cant vet and host your ads yourself to make sure they are safe, you dont DESERVE your ad's to make it through.
I tried to use it as a phone for 1 week. Even the version back in November you would still get the phone ringing but no way to answer it as the phone application refused to launch.
Linux on the surface Pro 1 or 2 makes the wifi more stable. It has been a nightmare for running windows on it because the marvell wireless chipset is a piece of crap that will lose its initial configuration the windows driver only loads it on install. the linux driver was modified to reload it on every single boot.
Blame microsoft for using the low grade dog food that is Marvell chipsets.
". One of the biggest reasons to *not* vote for Sanders is that the free health care giveaway is just going to make people more dependent on the central government"
As Opposed to the Piece of crap healthcare system designed by Mitt Romney we have now that is designed to line the pockets of Insurance companies?
"Affordable Healthcare Act" is Romneycare in every form... if it was "obamacare" I would not have to be paying $850 a month for it. Real republicans would be outraged by the shit being pulled in congress by republican leaders..
I would rather have "free healthcare" that doesn't bankrupt people and punish the middle class than having the Bullshit that the current leadership shoved down our throats.
How about restoring the 5th amendment? How about abiding by the fucking constitution and protecting it? You know real important shit that has been ignored for the past 14 years because of the boogymen of terrorism.. Instead you are all upset about something that will actually help people?
This is why I don't call myself republican anymore, people like you prefer to hate instead of doing what is right.
Because we only elect spineless old farts that care about their pockets more than the people they are elected to SERVE.
It's pretty amazing how almost everybody who is anti-abortion is also anti-welfare and anti-public-school and almost always pro-death-penalty.
The Catholic Church is opposed to both abortion and the death penalty, while pro-welfare.
