I only remember Raiders of the Lost Ark. What are these "Indiana Jones" titles you speak of?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Radio Shack formally jumped the shark with the CueCat. Been heading downhill ever since.
Quickly respawning processes that die is not HA. Clustering and fail-over at the application and hardware layers is HA.
A flapping service can cause more customer-facing downtime or irritation than a permanently-down service that's failed over gracefully at the appropriate layer.
Maybe I'm unique in this regard, but as an admin, if something goes down on one of my servers, I want it to stay down until I intervene.
Firstly, if I'm properly monitoring the process, then I'll be alerted and can investigate.
Secondly, there may a *reason* the process goes down, and having it down may be a good thing. If someone's trying to fuzz our httpd process for exploitation, then it happily restarting will open up a wider attack window.
Autopilots on production servers seem like a bad idea to me.
If you're on the RHEL security/patch list, you may have noticed a huge number of updates to ksh over the past couple of months. I found this odd -- until the recent shellshock thing went public. Perhaps this class of attack works against ksh as well? Looks like code reviews of core OS binaries may be ramping up since heartbleed.
Anyone else have Clarke's 2069 in the back of their minds when they hear updates about this mission? I'm sure he wasn't the only SF writer to make comet-landing a plot point, but his is the only one in my reading history.
Since we are supposed to report the value of barter transactions to the IRS at tax time, I don't think one (in the US, anyway) can ever argue in court that something used as a proxy for value cannot be treated as "money".
Do you speak from experience of using this technique? Or are you summarizing other online accounts?
As someone who filed personal BK 15 years ago, I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I am a strong believer of personal responsibility. But on the other hand, I loath the credit and debt collection industry with every fiber of my being, with their many awful tactics.
What you describe sounds like anyone could default on any old legitimate debt and then with some paperwork and brass balls simply get away without paying it back. Why the fuck shouldn't I max out my credit, stop paying the house, car, and credit car bills, and then reap the benefits of getting in the clear? This seems too easy (court/legal legwork aside).
I haven't kept tabs on the Fire line. I did voluntarily buy an ad-driven Kindle 3 (full keypad models) for myself and for my mother. Are the Fire models not similarly divided into ad-free and ad-subsidized lines?
Slashdot became reddit before reddit existed. You can bet your hot grits on it.
Dude, get a few of these:
The benefits of the external trays with the benefits of direct bus connections. Assuming you have a sane OS to recover with, hot-swapping should be a non-issue.
USENET? Anonymous FTP servers? Gopher/Archie/Veronica? Mail lists?
My first 3 or 4 years on "the internet" didn't even have graphical browsers, and it had a ton of useful information.
> Urbanites need their cell phones
Yeah, like they need a bad rash. Are you fucking kidding me?
I say *nobody* really needs cell phones.
Boucher not only consented to a search, he unlocked the drive with the the CP on it for the border/customs agent. This is the unique part of this case that makes it pretty much irrelevant for the generic case. The court ruled (as I understand it) that because he gave up the password once, he had to do it again when asked by the court.
If he had never unlocked the drive to begin with, and kept his mouth shut, then the outcome would have been very different.
He thrusts his fists against the post...
