We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
A WoT pilot aired an I haven't heard anything about it? Given that I frequent many websites that would have trumpeted such a creature from rooftops, I find it odd I haven't heard about it. It must have been a steaming pile of rancid monkey chunks.
So you're saying that Inertial dampeners and heisenberg compensators will never be a real thing?
Then fuck this planet and it's broken laws of physics!
If every time you build a VM or host to do this development on you have to spend 1-2 hours doing a config, you're doing it wrong!
Make a checklist of stuff that needs to be updated and keep around copies of working config files. Chances are you typically like all the same settings and for the most part you can just drop a php.ini that you have that worked and be done with it.
Same goes for VHost config files.
Same goes for installing necessary things. copy/paste the yum or apt command lines to install them.
Better yet, keep around a VM Image that's all ready, just change the hostname/IP etc and you're done. Take advantage of snapshot functionality in your hypervisor.
In other words, they powers that be will nerf the fuck out of peoples ability to produce/sell/buy these batteries. Because fuck you that's why!
Perhaps he's not as pissed at us for the rampant Gay as the far right wing bible banging charlatans would have us believe!
On a more serious note, this is weird right? Isn't this the exact opposite of expected virus behavior? To evolve to become LESS likely to spread?
But they gotta fill the fucker with gators and poe-ranna and flying fucking sharks. Also make the water poison, and electrified.
I have actually seen someone who has used Linux for 10+ years try and install Zoneminder on a system and after 2 days of agony nuke the entire virtual machine and start with another distribution thanks to dependency hell which could make a dll blush.
Then that "someone" either sucks or is having to admin boxes that were poorly built / maintained. That sort of thing just doesn't happen on a well managed system. Ever,
If this kid has a memory like this he should be doing more important things than learning how to be a windows admin.
For the most part people thank their lucky stars when a linux system works at all (unless of course it is a server sitting in the corner humming away on one task).
You clearly know nothing about linux and have never been a system administrator if that's how you think.
which just cannot be ignored.
The problem is that it is all being ignored. Completely.
I for one fully understand your choice.
Adopting systemd as the One True Initcould spell the beginning of the end of debian being lauded as the most "Stable and Secure" of all the distros. It's definitely bad on all counts for those of us who use linux for things other than our personal laptops. Systemd has no business on a server IMHO and it's going to suck and suck hard when it's forced on all of us (CentOS/RH 7 too are both systemd based, which is very upsetting).
As someone who's been a linux user and admin on a daily basis since the late '90s, let me say I am entirely unsurprised. Our developer community is not great at doing accelerated graphics drivers and the vendors all turn out sub-par binary blob laden drivers. The linux gaming thing has been a pie-in-the-sky pipe dream for years, I pretty much knew valve wouldn't be able to make it happen. I was hoping I would be proved wrong, but it isn't looking good.
On the bright side, I don't have time to game anymore so I don't really care =)
