I tried to register for it, but the system said no tickets were available. I sent in a note about that and got a response saying that ticket availability wasn't in the plans and that I was stupid for wanting one.
Yes, do that - please trade me your btc for fiat. Fiat has a fabulous long-term track record every time it's tried. Oh, I know - humans are so much smarter this time around!
I noticed this on Google News yesterday - checked a CentOS 7 box to find that yum had installed the patch overnight on 7/28 and systemd had restarted named for me. Good work, everybody. Make sure your updates are working.
Oh, hai dollar-short Slashdot.
Hey, the malaria vaccine that was proven safe and effective in the 90's just finally got out of UK regulatory hell last week. About a million kids a year die from malaria. In the time they were bickering about the typeface on the label about 330,000 kids died from malaria. But we need that kind of officiousness and palaces and such for "civility". Those kids weren't white anyway.
Now it goes WHO regulatory hell, but if we're "lucky" the bureaucrats there will only let a quarter million kids die while they get their paperwork in order.
Oh, but a rival gang leader kill three hundred kids in Africa and Twitter loses its shit.
How do these writers make it to mainstream media.
Uh, that's a skill required in mainstream media. "The Officer's pistol discharged." Obfuscate and decline to the passive voice. Don't rock the boat and always demur to power. Keep the corporation highly profitable.
It's indy media that says, "yet another cop shot an innocent fucking black man in the head," not establishment.
One of the early postulates was that a software bug caused the autopilot to fly along 90 E towards 0/0. If it ran out of fuel on that course
One of the early postulates was that
I take some of that back. It seems the real credit for digging in goes to these guys. Samsung came in a month ago after they were provided a test suite and then gets credit for finding the kernel code path that caused the problem. An Oracle engineer provided a more-correct patch.
Yeah, the outcome is great. I just wonder why they waited more than a year to look into it. Maybe this will set a good example for the industry that with a little bit of effort you can take care of your customers and sell more product.
If this were the 80's and a hard drive vendor had more than two reports of data loss under, say VMS, there would have been engineers on a plane to DEC by morning to get it solved by the coming weekend.
Now we have thousands of users with reports and millions of units sold, and a wealthy vendor, and it's all crickets, leaving some kernel hackers to half-ass a blacklist. It's not like this is BeOS - there are millions of servers running in the target market. I don't mean to absolve the bad troubleshooting by kernel devs, but want to know what drove the apathy at Samsung (and other vendors behaving poorly). It's obviously not profit motive.
If anybody wants to spend 45 minutes reviewing the data on whether the FDA's current regulatory regime helps or hinders, this talk is quite good.
Am I being too picky when I notice that?
This technology will never work. It can never be improved. The only safe thing to do is to go back to the ancient ways. We should pay people in thinktanks to ponder such things.
Gosh, I hope the new owner does something about this crap.
Your logic is not universal. Do people have a right to go shooting people on the street? Of course not. Do people have a right to shoot a home invader? Of course. If a creepy guy climbs your fence to take pictures of your teenage daughter in her bathing suit do you have a right to smash his camera? Many juries would say so. If he uses an RC drone camera instead? Same thing. Let's hear what's on the memory card.
Who cares? Your carrier will still stop shipping security updates before your RAM error map is full.
and $3.30 is fine. I paid way more for my SLC SSD's for my primary ZFS log device. Which are still going strong - thank you Intel. Gimme a giant one of these to swap out the mostly unused VM memory pages that are lost to containerization. It's webscale RAM.
