You're aware that the OS was named "Windows" for a reason, right? And that you can't install the OS separate from the UI?
You are right, I am failing to adequately communicate what I am saying. That a transaction can be retried is a byproduct of the atomicity requirement that a transaction fills. Retrying a transaction, because there is an ongoing problem with the database system dropping connections, is a sloppy hack.
You said that the point of a transaction is to enable the ability to retry it. I said that was not the point. I don't see how we are saying the same thing.
That isn't the point of a transaction _at all_. The point is to ensure that all of the operations contained in the transaction block are atomic - they either all happen or none of them happen.
You can "handle" a dropped connection, but if you're in a transaction in the middle of updating data, it's probably not going to be transparent to the user.
You're exactly right. I have serveral old microwave cookbooks and they demonstrate using foil to cover small sections of meat and poultry to keep it from becoming overcooked.
I love this:
>> Searching for records first goes to the "safe" side. If no records found use legacy system.
You do understand that the number of titles currently available via (legal) streaming is far, far less than the number of titles available via shipped plastic?
I'm sure I saw at least three dozen other commercials last night, anyone want to post an article about those?
I have no idea what "AAA" means in video game context, either. I am not a gamer. I know plenty of geeks that don't game.
It's just for a "study", aka a way to funnel govt money into the private sector.
No, they are not qualified, and the project wouldn't be done internally. The USPS is a treasure trove of outsourced, poorly-implemented half-done years-late projects, such as Flats Sequencing System and eInduction. The whole entity looks like a gigantic money funnel to companies like Northrup and Accenture.
And it's these 400 customers who demand delivery tracking. USPS performance is inconsistent across facilities and they are always pulling tricks like "unload incoming bulk mail and let sit for 2 days before doing an inbound scan". Those 400 customers want to know why a percentage of their multi-million-dollar bulk mailing arrived in the mailbox after the sale was over. That's what drives the tracking initiatives.
You complained a year ago about a choice Netflix made five years ago? Wow, you've got the pulse of technology.
USPS has the APIs but they are so obtuse and FIPS-standards-laden that the USPS points you to Indicia or Pitney Bowes if you ask about implementing the API.
