The flaw was reported Wednesday by Steven Abbagnaro, a student at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York. But as of Friday morning, Pacific time, it had still not been patched, based on tests conducted by the IDG News Service on a reporter's Facebook friends list. A malicious hacker could combine an exploit for this bug with spam or even a self-copying worm code to wreak havoc on the social network, Abbagnaro said in an interview.
He's written proof-of-concept code that scrapes publicly available data from users' Facebook pages and then, one by one, deletes all of their friends. For the attack to work, however, the victim would first have to be tricked into clicking on a malicious link while logged into Facebook. "The next thing you know, you have no friends," Abbagnaro said."

Not surprisingly, Gibson is at the forefront of the movement:
"Gibson says Panasas' parity declustering turns RAID from a local operation of one controller and a few disks into a parallel algorithm using all the controllers and disks in the storage pool. With pools of tens to hundreds of individual disk arrays, parity declustering enables recovery to be tens to hundreds of times faster. And it spreads the work so thinly per disk that concurrent user work sees far less interference from recovery."

wow, best buy had a magic version of Avatar that was recorded in RGBY !! Neato, i would LOVE to see how they got a brdvd to play that.

Long story short I was updating the BIOS on an old Shuttle XPC
(Last ditch effort to get it to run reliably before throwing it out the window).
After a failed flash, the machine was effectively "bricked" until such a time I could get an actual floppy drive installed to to a recovery boot.
It seems the only way for this old hardware to recover from a botched BIOS update was to boot from a real floppy.
I tried countless USB sticks formatted as floppies and even an actual USB floppy drive all to no avail.
The Shuttle XPC in question is now in the dumpster.
This type of interface has existed since the very first digital mixer..
Sorry, it has not.
Show me one digital mixer under $100,000 that has a multitouch interface (I am hedging my bet that there actually IS one). THAT is the difference. The importance of touch, along with the raw speed of the UI and repertoire of "gestures" cannot be underestimated.
Physical motor-driven faders are multitouch
Gestures, UI speed and touch quality, however... I'm pretty sure that you're right that the iPad will pretty much rock here, probably even within a VNC client...
If I had the cash, my mixer alone would be spread across 3 30" monitors (this is, coincidentally, why I'm eyeing ATI's Eyefinity setups with interest), with another 3 stacked vertically for tracking... oh, and another three for effects.
I'd rather have 8 iPads, arrayed in portrait mode, 4 across, and 2 "rows". Seriously.
Or do you guys just want the touch interface instead of point-and-click?
DING! DING! DING!!! YES!!!! It is FAR quicker (and more intuitive) to just DIRECTLY INTERACT with an on-screen control than to MANEUVER a pointer to a control, hope that you click in the right place (a real problem with "rotary" on-screen controls!!!), and THEN do whatever.
But why would you use an iPad if all you want is a touchscreen interface? For the same price as those 8 iPads, you could probably get a single touchscreen with 10x the resolution area and 8x the actual area of the iPad... I'm sure the $500 for one iPad alone would buy you a halfway decent capacitive touchscreen (although resistive/WACOM with a stylus would probably be better for stuff like this, IMO).
This would be a lot less hassle than VNCing in, and you'd have the added advantage of being able to use a real keyboard when you need one instead of hunting and pecking on a virtual keyboard...
You know there are digital controllers with actual faders and pots and stuff, made especially for use with DAWs, right?
Yes. And those controls are NOT LABELED; and are of FINITE number and type. Are you REALLY trying to argue AGAINST a more "informative" and flexible interface?
I like grabbing a handful of faders as much as the next guy; but you just can't beat FLEXIBLE. The on-screen "virtual front-panel" concept as expressed in every modern DAW and Plugin is halfway there. But a decently fast TOUCH interface (that doesn't cost an arm and a leg!) takes that concept and actually makes it USEFUL. That's what the actual advantages would be in a studio, or live, situation.
What isn't finite about 1024x768px of screen resolution? Scrolling over to the next fader bank is _exactly_ what those physical faders+pots interfaces do... they're usually labeled either with an LCD directly on the device, or with a small window that's displayed somewhere on a monitor attached to the DAW... ideally right under the mixer.
All in all, I'm beginning to get where you're going with this. It's more than a remote control: Using the iPad as a mixing device opens up the whole world of Touchscreen mixing to anyone with $500 and some time on their hands.
My counter-argument: Spend $500 on a touchscreen and have the same experience in bigger and better
You've actually inspired me to try this with my Tablet PC
BTW, your English is quite good. FYI, In the USA, it is generally "studio" (recording space) and "control room" (mixing room).
Should be better, considering it was my first language about 15 years ago
But that's another story

My felony record says I'd straighten your ass out for thinking you'd even stand a chance of being a RLTG versus the ITG you're currently portraying, and you'd only bend over and take it. Especially with a name like ClownPenis! What, you gotta inflate your junk first?
Dear felon, Unless you are also rwven, WTF are you doing even responding to me? I clearly "QUOTED" the comment I was replying to. That comment didn't belong to you. You are attacking my junk unprovoked.
