Finally we know why Ebon and Co stomped on the Odroid-W.
My core duo Mac Mini and MBPro, neither are supported by Apple, haven't been for quite awhile. I can throw Win10 on both of them without challenge.
On the flip side, we're using an old P4 based HP to test Windows 10. 1GB of RAM, Intel chipset integrated graphics and the darn thing is actually quite responsive using IE/etc. Chrome takes forever to load but I want to toss the 64bit beta on there to see if that improves things at all. That's circa 2005 hardware. I need to research to see if my i810e chipset based e-Machine can run it next...
Um, no.... You still have to go over all the same hops with your encapsulated packet to get to the VPN endpoint, THEN the hop to the game server in the farm. Just because the trace looks different in the tunnel doesn't mean you've magically bypassed the internet. Sans VPN you'd be skipping encapsulation and that VPN endpoint to game server hop.
The AUP spells out their definition, and as noted has terms that specifically cover TOR directly. How their interpretation vs yours or others would play out in court I've no idea.
This is also covered by their AUP and explicitly listed as an OK use of XFINITY.
No, but they can reference their TOS and note preclusion against running 'servers' on residential service.
Actually, they have a few rules in their Acceptable Use Policy that specifically go after TOR: http://www.comcast.com/Corpora...
The merchant policies from Visa/etc actually instruct them NOT to ask for ID even if that's on the card. If you don't sign your card they're not supposed to accept it at all.
I want to say this was all debated once in the past back in the dialup era. If you advertised 'unlimited' dialup, you had to deliver and couldn't back door in per hour charges, etc. What makes this any different?
A feature that has yet to appear in the Xeon line, and Intel claims to already have a fix to bake into the next steppings so... Opterons can go back to being scared of the future.
Don't take my word for it: http://www.cs.tufts.edu/comp/1...
This is an area where post compile optimization can shine. By watching actual execution with live data, the post compiler optimizer can build branch choice stats to tune against based on actual operation rather than static analysis at compile time. HP's dynamo project IIRC was based around this idea, it'd recompile binaries for the same architecture it ran on after observing them running a few times. I believe the claims were an average 10% improvement in perf over just compiler optimized binaries.
On the flip side, most ISP operated edge DNS servers ignore low TTLs below their desired threshold now as a means of reducing load, I've seen some force a 24hr minimum.
There are ways to do VPNs from dynamic endpoints that don't require dynamic DNS. IPSec supports xauth for just this purpose.
Come to think of it, I'm getting emails from VMWare asking for permission to get further emails from them as well...
