According to the Additive Noise Model, the birds didn't avoid the storm. They caused it.
windows doesnt "lose" the case of the filename, dumbass - someone would have had to change it. Unless maybe its win3.1, in which case its the fucking devs fault for being a cheap shit.
That's why I said "windows of a certain age" dumbass.
What possible reason could one have for differentiating 2 files on nothing but case?
1) Programmer copies files from linux box to windows box of a certain age.
2) Programmer makes some changes in windows land.
3) Windows loses the case of the filenames
4) Programmer copies files back to the same directory in linux land. Now there are two different files README and Readme.
Yes. I remember the lawsuit.
This isn't a specific git problem. It's a windows problem.
I have source trees that I can't check out of an SVN server on windows because either the files get overwritten by different case filenames being aliased onto the same file or the file tree being to deep for windows.
>From my understanding CSIRO solved the key problems for microwave echo cancellation and invented the IC's that encapsulated the fast fourier transforms. Here is an article with a video if it is too long to read.
You mean OFDM? Try googling "who invented OFDM". It dates back to the 60s.
I am one of the authors of 802.11 and 802.16 that both use OFDM. So are many other Slashdot readers.
People who don't make products have no clue how long it takes to make a product. Their attention span is always shorter. This is an example of someone complaining because their attention span is shorter than the development cycle.
I'd prefer for everyone to pirate it.
You screw the North Koreans (and their supporters) and Sony in one go. Win Win.
And ironically, it seems that will be the only way to watch the movie for the time being. Cause the terrorists have won.
So when the terrorists win, so does free speech?
>This is one reason so many "American" companies are headquartered in Ireland.
But the primary reason is avoiding import tariffs into Europe, by residing in the most tax advantageous place in Europe (for a corp).
They did not, because the people who invented the relevant bits of Wi-Fi and brought them to the IEEE invented them before CSIRO did.
If you stop the wind all of a sudden, the turbine will continue to turn, causing wind, until the energy in the turbine is spent.
> That may be news worthy, but it deserves a more accurate headline: new statistical test can form confidence bounds for how unlikely a it would be for a new parameter to be of this magnitude if there were causation: when combined with existing test it may discredit more potential claims of causation than previously practical.
Bingo. You have won the internets.
An algorithm changes its behavior based on the value.
The example I gave is a sneaky algorithm in the FIPS spec that deletes consecutive values when they match.
If this_value == last_value:
don't output this_value
do output this_value.
This is on the output of an RNG and so it reduces the entropy in the random numbers because there are no matching consecutive numbers, whereas in a full entropy stream, all pairs would be equally likely.
In the context of noise in statistical analysis, it can confound the additive noise models.
Algorithms that do things to data, but don't look at the values of the data when deciding what to do are not data dependent and so that limits the scope various bad things to happen.
TFA says the firing cost $25 Million.
NASA don't get out of bed for $25 Million.
With good reason.
