Sounds like an interesting project from what I can tell, but the posted article is... Not great.
You have a dedicated 3Mb/s ADSL connection? That kind of thing costs hundreds a month here in Australia, usually the consumer grade plans are fine, cheap and very fast, but the guarantee to always supply you a certain sized pipe costs way way more. Having that bandwidth sitting there doing nothing when you're asleep, just in case you wake up and need your 3Mb/s out of nowhere costs the ISP constantly. Most business plans I see now just quote the "up to" speeds, I guess because in reality most people are fine if their connection drops down a smidgen once in a blue moon, and is blazing fast the rest of the time.
Gotcha, I was pretty ignorant of the wait for "clear air" aspect of it, I do think though that given the limited amount of bands, improvements will have to happen at the protocol and physical layers, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11ac this has a lot of stuff over my head, but "downlink multi user MIMO" sounds like it might be beneficial for lots of people all streaming at once on the same network? I guess one good thing about having a wifi network in a plane is you're pretty much guaranteed to be the only access point(s) in the vicinity!
I'm missing something here, already do what? stream movies on a local wireless network? Yes believe they do. In a plane? no idea, and I'm not sure how the amount of spectrum available factors into that equation. I don't think bandwidth is the hurdle for many uses of any wireless networking, IME it's the necessarily huge latency (relatively) of most any flavour of wireless that makes it useless for doing lots of "cool shit"...
3 that guy, Legend.
Good point, but surely some kind of copper is always going to make its way to every seat? Unless they power the reading lights remotely, which actually DOES sound like a recipe for serious control malfunctions
What is a wire not accomplishing here that radio signals are needed to overcome? Could it possibly be a lack of marketing buzz-word juice for the hussy? Albeit about 10 years behind the buzz... This plane is a literally a giant cloud app. How about that one.
The hash ref thing will save me some intense headaches, an array of hashes of either hashes or arrays of hashes? I thought I was going nuts trying to update a value in that mess.
to? I find myself using it more and more, interfacing with all kinds of weird bug ridden SOAP APIs seems to be easiest with Perl...
+1 Quite the non-story isn't it. Or at least the summary's written so blandly as to strip any interestingness out of it... Either way, I was disappointed enough to comment, but nowhere near interested enough to click through.
Hell yeah, let's just do it man... it sounds straightforward enough... Sounds like in an old western, the malware monetizers are the baddies in black robbing trains, and we can be the posse of marshalls tracking them by analysing their leavings. I'm going to call this goodie gang: "Literally *all* of the best hackers
/in the world/ (who aren't criminals)"
Our motto will be "Cyber bad guys - they need to be stopped"
I better try Opera again, every modern browser I have is an absolute whore for memory.
Aggressive way to punish these people, making their experience miserable(er) surely won't do much to fix their attitude or directly make them feel unwelcome... Then again, I guess website developers aren't here to police the web for everyone else...
When you're trying to fix a 500 error caused by a script? Are you already getting this problem? I hadn't noticed anything when testing with Chrome...
The job of testing websites for cross-browser compatibility just got even more painful...
