"...require companies with more than 250 employees to submit..." Solution: Fire all but 250 of your employees.
If necessary, outsource any remaining work to 1 or more subcontractors, each of which has 250 employees or less.
Or we could just end the gamemanship which allows companies to claim employees aren't employees if they walk and quack like a duck, just because they're farmed out only for the purpose of avoiding having to call them employees.
The slides refer to a feature called "pacing" where it doesn't send packets as fast as it can, but spaces them out. Can someone explain why this would help? If the sliding window is full, and an acknowledgement for N packets comes in, why would it help to send the next N packets with a delay, rather than send them as fast as possible?
I wonder if this is really "buffer bloat compensation" where some router along the line is accepting packets even though it will never send them. By spacing the packets out, you avoid getting into that router's bloated buffer.
From the linked slides:
Does Packet Pacing really reduce Packet Loss?
* Yes!!! Pacing seems to help a lot
* Experiments show notable loss when rapidly sending (unpaced) packets
* Example: Look at 21st rapidly sent packet
- 8-13% lost when unpaced
- 1% lost with pacing
Well, if you're sending UDP, and your server is connected to a gig link, and the next link between you and the server is 1m, and the buffer size of the device is 25ms...
Sending data over 25k, you might as well set packets 18+ on fire, because they sure aren't making it to the destination unless you delay them accordingly.
As I understand it, QUIC is largely about multiplexing - downloading all 35 files needed for a page concurrently. The test was the opposite of what QUIC is designed for
TCP handles one file at at a time* - first download the html, then the logo, then the background, then the first navigation button
QUIC gets all of those page elements at the same time, over a single connection. The problem with TCP and the strength of QUIC is exactly what TFA chose NOT to test. By using a single 10 MB file, their test is the opposite of web browsing and doesn't test the innovations in QUIC.
* browsers can negotiate multiple TCP connections, which is a slow way to retrieve many small files.
What the hell are you talking about? You're conflating HTTP with TCP. TCP has no such limitation. TCP doesn't deal in files at all.
Give H1B holders who blow the whistle on their employers violating the law (overworking them, or claiming and paying them as if it were a much lower skilled job that in reality is higher skilled, the employer just wanted to scare off US workers, etc.) either fast-path to a Green Card, double the pay (paid by fines) they would have earned, and/or freedom to move to a different employer for their stay.
I.e. change the incentives for H1B visa holders to rat out misbehaving employers, rather than being scared to say anything because they loose if they do.
That's like saying cops as a whole won't abuse power if we listen to the rare whistle blowers every now and then. When the system itself is abusable by design, 4 or 5 honest actors aren't going to fix that, you have to fix the system.
There is a pretty easy cure for all of this...
Just re-write the H1-B laws so that all H1-B workers must be paid 20% more than industry standard for the region or area the job is located in. That, or have a 20-40% premium on each worker's salary paid by the hiring company as an excise tax.
I bet that shit would stop cold right away.
It isn't enough. A lot of the draw of H1B is the lack of mobility. Let them freely change jobs and allow them to have a 1 year grace period between jobs if they've been in their first job for a year.
That's great and all until you look at scale. It simply doesn't, and this is coming from someone who did strategic planning for a CLEC. That's the entire point of using the term natural monopoly.
Nitrogen in a gas chamber is probably the most humane way to do it.
Or Carbon Monoxide.
No, because carbon monoxide is toxic, meaning exposure to it is dangerous, while sufficient nitrogen just dominates the partial pressure to the point where the environment becomes anoxic, so all you have to do is vent the nitrogen when done, while the CO you have to take care to deal with.
So you choose to speed, and drive without mandated insurance, and somehow this is government oppression that you be forced to not endanger others or maintain liability insurance, and then when cited for it, ignored the penalties and act like a victim when the consequences of your actions catch you?
Seriously, you're part of the problem in this country.
Sure. you buy a house for $50,000 in 1973, then 40 years later sell it for $250,000, an inflation calculator will indicate an almost imperceptible change in "value" (in 2013 dollars), but you'll be taxed on the inflation (on not, if you live there as a homestead, and meet other rules).
Capital gains is a tax on the inflation. They don't calculate the capital gains on the "real" gain, but the dollar gain.
You are obviously the person that doesn't understand it. If I don't understand it, explain how I'm wrong. Go ahead. I'll be waiting.
That is actually a really good point.
Is indexing the cost basis against something like CPI something that has been proposed as law before?
I know I personally would absolutely support that change, although I would like to see CG rates be more in line with income rates as a compromise, as the goal was never meant to tax base value of long term assets, but specifically to tax value gained over the time.
Last I checked, it's quite easy to move to Somalia.
So based on that I assume you consider the Islamic Courts Union -- the radical Islamic group that seeks to control Somalia -- to be a... corporation? Not a government (or aspiring government)?
Somalia does not suck because of corporations, it sucks because of its government(s). People like you think of Somalia as a governmental vacuum but that's just ignorant of the real situation.
The point isn't move to Somalia because it sucks, the point is move to Somalia if you want to ignore government. It sucks precisely because the government is ineffective, and that is exactly what a country with no effective government turns into. Sure it has a government, but under the same argument, so does Afghanistan, or hell, even SeaLand had a government for years.
