At which point the industry will present their "new improved" model (at twice the cost, naturally)
"plus our allies are buying a whole bunch"
And in the meantime we in the UK won't have an aircraft carrier worth the name for the best part of a decade...
We have the boats... just not the planes (I assume the recent grounding will put back delivery another year or two)
Should have stuck with the Harrier...
Read this part again: "For commercial-level code... fair enough" - I agree with you entirely on that score.
I wasn't talking about that though - the whole point of demos WAS to use as many tricks as possible, to show off to your mates (and the wider world) for a few weeks, until the next bare-metal coder found a way to do something that blew yours away... If it ran on one specific variant only - so be it.
Actually, timing-dependent code is a gross violation of Commodore's published Amiga programming standards.
For commercial-level code... fair enough
The demo-coders, though, would have taken one look (if that many) and said "screw that - look what we can do!"
"possible malign foreign actors"
That'll be the NSA then?
So you leave your doors unlocked and open when you go out do you?
I assume nobody in your neighbourhood would even consider walking in and stealing all your shiny things...
So if I were to gun down the entire US population - just to make defend myself from the possibility of being shot next time I'm there - is that OK?
(Yes... I know it's a stupid comment...)
Out of interest - how far away does the proximity detector kick in?
There's an episode of Top Gear where Clarkson drove Hammond's vehicle away while it was parked, and the key was in Hammond's pocket (he was inside a diner at the time as I recall). The car got 100 feet or so before the system realised that the key was no longer nearby and shut off the engine.
If that's typical then the potential for theft is huge - by simply driving the car onto a tow truck before the system locks it down.
Assuming they're not brought about by "accidentally" selling things off via some offshore location (or three)
Gains? What gains?
The NSA has apparently known about heartbleed since the start
Instead of adding an exception to the Valgrind ignore list (which you most frequently must have in any moderately sized project, esp one that handles its own memory management)
If you need to add exceptions to get a tool to work... the tool is wrong for the job.
Should have used furlongs... you'd getter bigger numbers that way - and we all know bigger is better
"The Daily Mail"
would probably be a lot more sympathetic if he were, instead, a barely-legal female in barely-there clothing that their readership could bitch about (or perve over) despite their claims to be a "family newspaper"
