Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The problem with that is now coding is about reusing as much as possible. If it takes 10 weeks to write a library or 10 seconds to download some open source library then the guy who takes 10 weeks is going to get schooled by the the guy who takes 10 seconds.
Just ctrl-alt-del and end task. That should help.
>> and deploy networking topologies such as Ethernet, with proven security.
Ethernet is already widely deployed in cars for data hungry applications ( infotainment) For other uses, ethernet is absolutely not suitable ( price, power, wiring constraints, EMC, safety,
That's why they are using 2-wire ethernet.
I'm not sure where you got that information about Ethernet widely deployed in cars for Infotainment. If you can send me an article about that I'd really like to read it.
I think everyone's ignoring an important point. The aviation industry is extremely intolerant of accidents; especially due to manufacturing and design defects. This is a good thing for the presidents safety. The president doesn't give a crapy about fuel economy or the latest carbon fiber designs like the rest of us. They need something with a proven track record of safety.
Plus it's probably easier to add to the 747 Missle defense and reuse the radiation hardened avionics
It's not about cost. It's about design. They used to build things to last. They'll build products with improper snubbing. They know that the back emf will eventually burn out the IC and they depend on it. It lowers cost and means you buy a new electric carving knife every couple of years.
Seducing a bunch of nerds with free awesome swag to entice them to show up does not constitute bribery.
What you need is corporate sponsors for free swag.
Most the people go to Google IO for the free stuff.
"That's how science work. You don't base your decision on the mere principle that it more or less looks kind of logical."
Newtonian physics looks kind of logical. It's completely wrong, but plenty of decisions are based on it. Despite that we know is wrong we still use it today because it's incredibly useful.
Science constantly bases decisions on kinda logical principles until those principles are proven to be wrong.

Relax dude. Now that the media is hyping vulnerabilities, this is just a way for the TV networks to make a movie about the vulnerability that stole Christmas from some poor sysadmins. They'll replay it every Christmas until the end of time. Our great great grandchildren will have to suffer through it.
This has nothing to do with a RPi. It is a common file system problem.
RPi has 2 file systems.
1. Fat32 for the bootloader, proprietary firmware and kernel
2. Linux rootfs that can use many different kinds of file systems.
ext2 wasn't very good at handling unclean shutdowns.
ext3/4 are a little better.
fat32 is terrible.
Fortunately the fat32 partition doesn't need to be written very often, so you're good. Reads aren't dangerous.
What you really want to do is make sure your Linux kernel has an initramfs installed in the kernel image, so it can fsck and fix any file system errors if the partition wasn't cleanly unmounted.
There you go. Not a hardware issue.
If you're interested in home automation, then you're probably familiar with the different protocols that exist which can work either wirelessly or over the powerline.
This system requires you to run 2 wires for the rs-485 to each module + power. This is not really convenient.
ZigBee and Z-wave seems to be taking over. I love open source, but I'm probably going to go the proprietary route.
You can't even compile the firmware without paying for a compiler.
"The firmware of our modules is written in Pic Basic Pro (except for the power measurement module which is written in C). Pic Basic Pro is an easy to use programming language that can be learnt very easily. We provide all source code free of charge (GPLv2 licence). The Pic Basic Pro compiler however is not for free so we ask everyone to play fair and to purchase the compiler (PBP Gold edition that supports the Microchip 18F) from www.melabs.com." - http://wiki.openmotics.com/ind...
One thing is for sure; All the scala folks are going to try it.
