There's one big difference to illogical arguments. When you bolt something extra to a scientific "argument", it has to apply to everything already tested too. When arguing with an ex, there is selective application of everything.
Maybe not the same way, it may be until MS releases a how-to in a form of a patch to still supported OS, and XP has same vulnerability.
Also, are you suggesting that all XP bugs have been found?
There are probably a bunch of XP remote exploits in the hats of black hats, just waiting for the time when the vulnerabilities stop being patched. Installed base is stilll quite big, big enough for a serious worm infestation, which will spread to every XP that remains exposed.
Does it have an ssh client available to use in said console?
So far on Android the best I've found is ConnectBot. Honestly the screen real estat sucks, even on my Nexus 4.
I suppose for Linux console you'd use OpenSSH, as usual. You can build it yourself if you wish, or you can find a ready-made
It's a "real" Linux, you know. And by "real" I mean, much like a mainstream PC Linux distro.
I Think it means, no working model, which would match observations. In current models supernovas do not happen reliably, the stars fail to actually go supernova. Is it a supernova model, if there's no supernova happening according to the model?
the tree could very well still make it sound because it is useful for the simulation.
Or, due to chaotic nature of the simulation, AKA "the Butterfly Effect", the tree not making a sound would end up changing everything.
But is it evil? I'm not sure. Anyway, BB is not even on sale in my country I think, or at least I've never seen one. Then there's Jolla of course, but I think it's definitely not evil, so not in the running for evil things to choose from.
"When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before." (Mae West)
Well, this can be generalized to choosing between several evils. That would mean choosing WP for a lot of folks, I suppose... But what's scary is, choosing WP doesn't scare me any more.
So what is average/worst case access time for that tape cabinet? For BD, I don't know at all, but I guess for BD it is some tens of secs including disk change and spin-up. Perhaps much less with hardware optimized for this.
If that data needs to be accessed from web, then I think some tens of seconds maximum acceptable.
But G+ does not have my friends there, nor does it have an official app for my phone (and I'm not about to enter my Google credientals on some 3rd party app). I don't see it really taking off until Google stops using it as marketing ploy.
Of course they may also shut it down any time with a warning of a few months, even if it seems a remote possibility now...
You are needlesly introducing multiple reference frames. Here there's just on that is relevant: ours. If event happened 12 million light years away, it also by definition of speed of light happened 12 million years ago, when we see the light. When observing photons in vacuum, distance and time are same thing. "Now" would mean "here", and I don't feel the heat, so inverse square law must be in effect, which implies distance, which implies time.
You are trying to argue common sense against a tide that has been moving for decades. If you do it on the bare metal then you cant program it in Java or
You say the reason here yourself: availability of employees or contractors who can do what needs to be done. Or if it's not availability, then it's the ability tell one who can do it for you from one who'd like to learn it at your expense. It may be dull, but it is a real-world constraint, and common sense ignoring real constraints is not common sense.
I guess you could blame the teaching of management. A manager can't manage or decide something (such as hiring somebody with certain skillset), if they don't even know about it.
Thanks for the links. However, I bet the TCP/IP stack is not really a full implementation (I did not find the code so couldn't look at it). It's just a hack, a cool one but still a hack. If it was production-quality software package, it wouldn't be a project at a hacking site. The work going from a hack into a product you can sell to a bank is a long one. Also, parts availability is one thing, and adapting the software to a new HW like that can be rather more involved, and selecting the right components with availability of years into a future is a special skill too.
Another point, if it could be done cheaper that way, I bet it would have been done so in this free market economy. A startup might have appeared, offering that kind of solutions built on top of embedded HW, instead of an embedded PC with a PC OS. Going beyond ATMs (which probably have a bunch of entrenched suppliers and unfun regulations), are there any such products/companies?
