Very bad. Every time the game updated it would get worse. I hope ReFS is going to be available on Windows 9. NTFS was great ten years ago but it is really starting to show it's age.
The problem I had with running TF2 on Windows is that the game files would fragment quickly, forcing me to defrag every week or two to keep it running smoothly. Hence why I was ecstatic when it was ported to Linux. I suppose it's a moot point if you are using an SSD, but just for the record. When using HDDs I have always spent a lot less time listening to the thing crank away on Linux than on Windows.
One of the best endpoint security tools you can deploy.
Few things cheese me off more than corporate cartels and their allies in congress who preach about the goodness of the free market and against government meddling, right up until the free market threatens their dominant position; then they want the government to put a stop to that nonsense immediately. If you really do support a free market, then you either change with the times or you get out of the way and stop holding back those who are actually innovating.
No matter how conclusively this is proven, these idiot officials will continue to use Snowden as their scapegoat.
If the carriers whine about it (and they will), someone should publicly ask them why their networks are so lousy that they can't offer 1/100th of the speed that municipal projects and Google Fiber are providing.
These guys are starting to make the Third Reich look sane and well adjusted.
It says a lot about Quickflix's service when Netflix via VPN is an actual competitive problem for them.
Maybe I'm weird for being mostly interested in what kind of new NUC platforms Broadwell will give us. The mobile rush has been good for desktop systems from an evolutionary standpoint. I have already built a few systems the size of a WiFi router with zero moving parts.
Whatever this costs Microsoft in fines and legal costs is going to be paltry compared the the revenue they have likely been losing from overseas business since the Snowden revelations. Doing this puts on a good show that makes it look like they care about they are fighting the U.S. government to protect their customers. Deep down I wonder how many of their executives want to see Snowden locked up as well.
Part of me screams for Amazon to mercilessly crush the cable companies and salt their fields. The more reasonable side of me worries we would wind up trading one overpowered corporate overlord for another. It won't stop me from grabbing popcorn and enjoying the show either way, though; just to satisfy the bloodlust against these bastards.
I am going to start using cash a lot more often until the system has it's act together. All of the crooks are busy robbing people the 21st century way anyhow. The good news is that between this and the NSA's shenanigans, security development efforts are on fire right now. It's long overdue.
Municipalities providing a critical infrastructure? What Lunacy! That will never work! What other crazy ideas do these municipalities have in store for us? Electricity? Running water and sewage? Gas heating? Paved roads? Balderdash! Best to leave these things to the large corporations and eliminate all of the regulations since they have nothing but the public's best interests at heart. To the free market fairy we pray for forgiveness. Amen.
Dega704 (1454673) writes "When Syria's access to the internet was cut for two days back in 2012, it apparently wasn't the fault of dissenting "terrorists," as the Syrian government claimed: according to Wired, it was the fault of the US government. In a long profile of Edward Snowden published today, Wired writes what Snowden says is the truth about the internet outage. An elite hacking unit in the National Security Agency had reportedly been attempting to install malware on a central router within Syria — a feat that would have allowed the agency to access a good amount of the country's internet traffic. Instead, it ended up accidentally rendering the router unusable, causing Syria's internet connection to go dark."

Built one of Intel's NUC platforms with the Akasa Newton H enclosure. Fanless + SSD = No moving parts. Freaking sweet. I want to build another one as an HTPC.
