I don't have any points to give, so I'll just comment that I thought it was an interesting post, as well.
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).
Something you could checkout is Lazarus (http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/). It's a Delphi compatible IDE using the Free Pascal compiler. As a bonus, there are versions for Windows, OSX, and Linux.
I know it's dangerous to base opinions on summaries, but the summary says "during recovery mode boots". So, at least it doesn't seem to be as bad as autorunning files on a usb stick, which used to be pretty common.
It is certainly a serious vulnerability, but considering the number of times I've done a recovery mode boot, I'm not overly concerned about it.
Well, yeah, but you would also have the rest of the universe rushing at you, and you would be saying "ah, so that's where we're going!"
The link "water is much more of an issue" is broken (the "www." portion should be dropped). This link works: water is much more of an issue.
You're absolutely right. Just a few weeks ago I decided to look into backing up my home storage to tape. The tapes themselves weren't terribly expensive, but the drives... couldn't believe what they cost. And it didn't look like eBay had any deals on them either (or, at least, not at prices I'm willing to pay).
I think $200-$250 would be a better price point, but I would certainly go for one at $300, even if it was an LTO-5 drive.
Interesting, I didn't realize Fixnum supported a base argument for to_s. Something new, everyday
An article I read about the sapphire producer claimed that the primary reason it wasn't used for the iPhone was that they simply couldn't get the yields needed to support the volume.
There's a paywall, but googling the title in a private window might get you a good link (worked for me).
That's correct. It's in the "universe" repo, which is community maintained, so it's not Canonical's responsibility to keep it updated. It's up to the package maintainer(s) to back-port security fixes, and I don't think anyone has volunteered to take that on.
Haha, nice, I was thinking the same thing.
Nah, not at all. He was simultaneously writing a commentary on the effects of the new Common Core standards of teaching.
Exactly. Or, maybe they received a bulk of requests, each for a specific piece of data.
I love that add-on because I keep forgetting I have it installed, then, out of the blue, BAM!, a sentence no longer makes sense but is much more fun: "Hospitals now delivering babies in my butt, film at 11!".
There's no need to install Ansible on the remote systems, only on the machine running the playbooks. All Ansible activity is run over SSH and has no remote dependencies.
Also keep in mind that Eich was given only 4 days to create the language. I agree that things should have been fixed long ago, while the changes would have been less disruptive.
